Clearwire (CLWR:NASDAQ) Shares of Clearwire were up nicely today in anticipation of earnings. In the aftermarket they also remain near where they closed. On the surface CLWR had a decent release.

Keep in mind that there is still a downside gap to fill at $1.64.

Mosiac (MOS:NYSE) MOS looked great last week and not so hot today. Although there seems to be a basing process going on with the Ag’s, they need to actually break out. Maybe M&A will help the group, but something needs to happen fast before lower lows start getting set.

JP Morgan (JPM:NYSE) Shares of the bell weather financial had a decent day, outperforming the market, but the volume was sort of light for a move of roughly 2.5%. Patience might pay off in this name once the European mess gets off the front page. Bulls might say that the recent pullback was just a gap fill.

Molycorp (MCP:NYSE) Do you realize that you could have bought MCP under $30 earlier this month ? Don’t feel so bad, even speculative traders shy away from names like these on dips. MCP seems to be stabilizing in the mid to high $30′s, but needs something other than higher REE spot prices to really break out. So keep looking for news out of Washington or China for the next move. Also, the $36.50 level looks pretty solid for support.

AER Energy Resources (AERN.OB) AERN has been an extremely hot penny stock, but the continued high volume of promo emails is alarming to some. Shares are up over 20 percent at the time of this entry, but the Reg Sho, Rule 201 is now in effect. Rule 201 is often a sign of naked short selling.

Molycorp (MCP:NYSE) In the last two weeks, rare earth stocks have gone from riches to rags. Now they seem to be on their way back to prosperity. A break of $39.68 would be huge for MCP longs, but the recent volume has been light. However, the political sentiment out of Washington seems to favor this group. Especially because China, for all intensive purposes, has essentially been on the other side of the market in regards to the commodity.

Clearwire (CLWR:NYSE) This once trendy NASDAQ small cap name is now a penny stock in the truest sense of the words. Longs should beware that tax selling season is close and those $1 stop loss orders could be tested at some point, partially because so much hot money is underwater now.

Potash (POT:NYSE) The flagship Ag name is trading nicely today on huge volume.
