PRIME STOCK NEWSLETTER FOR October 2nd, 2008
Position Statement: In our Prime Recommendation Letter we attempt to identify the recommendation with the highest probability of moving higher.  We recommend that stop orders be placed at the time of purchase,  and once the position has moved profitable we recommend a stop be placed a minimum of $0.375 above the purchase price and moved higher as the position moves higher.

Today’s Comments: The overall market finished Wednesday essentially flat on a day that say the majority of the sector indices I track move lower on the day. The weakest sectors on the day were the Insurance, Technology, Cyclical, High Tech, Natural Gas, Retailers, Commodities, Oil & Gas, Networking, Biotech, and Chemicals. There was strength in the Airlines, Banking, Broker/Dealer, Pharmaceuticals, and Consumer indices. There was not a single index I looked at this morning that appears to have broken its downward trend line. The Bottom Line: The overall market should move lower.

Our Analysis: The shares of set a new multi-year closing low on heavier than normal trading volume. In the process they closed below a key support level. Additionally they completed what is known as an inverted cup pattern with a measured move to our stated price target of $9.51/share. Our review of the chart of 'LVS' shows no support on the chart below the support level that was broken yesterday. A downward free fall on this stock is very possible. I see upside resistance on the shares of 'LVS' at $33.19 per share, and have set my stops accordingly at $33.49 per share.
