Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc.(GMCR) - If its support of $64.14 is broken on a close basis then the chances of stock touching the level of $40 becomes high. The internal indicators ( KD, MACD and RSI ) are moving down and in the world of technical analysis, that is not good. Buy only when the stock reverses from the support.

Tellabs, Inc. (TLAB) - Share price has been moving in a range since June. A break above $4.65 on a close basis could set a temporary rally to $5.24. At this stage, the stock can go either way, however the volume is picking up which is a good signal, probably a signal of accumulation. Intermediate trend remains neutral. Stop loss for short-term investors can be at $4.01.

Trina Solar Limited (TSL) - Looking at the technical chart there are several indications I see which suggest a near-term bottom, including large positive divergences on MACD in daily. If the potential buy signal confirms itself, we will be looking for a move to the resistance area at $7.8-8.6, at the very least. Until that happens, traders will want to be on high-alert to the possibility of a bullish reversal. Keep TSL on your screen for Thursday’s trading session.

Banner Corporation (BANR) is trading up after hours, as the company released good earnings. The company reported net income of $6.0 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2011, compared to net income of $2.2 million in the immediately preceding quarter and a net loss of $42.7 million in the third quarter a year ago. In the first nine months of the year, Banner reported net income of $387,000 compared to a net loss of $49.2 million in the first nine months of 2010. I expect BANR to gap open on Thursday, possibly gapping above the major resistance level at $15.11. From a technical standpoint, the stock is very strong. Now that the stock is on an uptrend with MACD above the signal line, any pull back would mean great buying opportunity. BANR should be a hot stock on Thursday so watch it closely throughout the day.
