VirnetX Holding Corporation (NYSEMKT:VHC) After a 30% climb during trading hours on Wednesday, VirnetX Holding Corp (VHC) shares rose more than 89% in after-hours trading after a Federal jury has ordered Apple to pay $625.6 million in damages and royalties to VirnetX Holding Corp. for violating patents. I used this opportunity to take profits. Congratulations once again to everyone who was able to take part in this profitable trade. My patience paid off in a big way. I own now just VRNG in this field and will probably add more shares this morning. Above you can see the weekly chart of VHC with the major resistances coming around $11.43 (EMA200).

Puma Biotechnology Inc (NYSE:PBYI) The rally in the price has broken the downtrend line on Tuesday and was confirmed yesterday, which is a buy signal. The stock could see now a significant bounce from this level. On the technical side, MACD and Slow Sto all point to upward trend while RSI is trying to break above its 30% level, passing into neutral territory. Plus, we saw unusual call buying in the Feb $45 strike. PUMA has a lot of upside potential, so watch it closely on Thursday.
