Xun Energy, Inc. XNRG
The volume and trading on XNRG stayed consistent with the prior day’s activity. We saw some bounces that made quick-strike gains possible, so we want to be on the lookout for similar activity today. Currently .0055 is the new support level, and we are still on the lookout for several chart indicators to ripen, as we pointed out yesterday.
Form 4 Watchlist
When conducting our various daily scans for promising plays, we try to look for any indications that might give us an edge. One of the things we check for periodically, is insider buying activity, especially when the purchase price exceeds the current market value of the stock. So after conducting a thorough search for Form 4 filings, we’ve come up with an Insider Buying Watchlist:
NBS, ETRM, EVC, GLDD, CPSS, GGS, JRN, USU, RWC, IDRA, GTE, WELX,
Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. CETV
Also popping up on our Form 4 scan, was something of great interest in CETV, a media and entertainment company operating broadcasting businesses in six Central and Eastern European markets. On Wednesday, a block of shares equal to $74.7M was purchased by the company’s largest shareholder of record, none other than Time Warner. Further details of the purchase can be found in the corresponding press release below. This developing story is of extreme interest to us, and we will be watching CETV like a hawk in coming weeks, ready to pounce on any opportunities it may provide.
