No. 1



Fletcher Building Limited (FBU)




The hunter becomes the hunted.  Rumor of Aus’ largest building & construction materials supplier Boral circling. Current trading at $6.45 from high of $13.45 just over a year ago.  Would think Boral will have to pay double-digits if they’re serious on taking them out.


No. 2




Westpac Banking Corporation (WBC)




Aus’ First Bank trades back above $20. New reporting lines implemented this week by Gail Kelly as she dictates her management style.  Looking for a break above $23.00 toward $25.00/20


No. 3




US Crude Oil Aug 08




Whip-saw movements saw longs able to take some profits. $147.29 was traded.  Bottom-picking can be expensive but bids at $128.50-$129.00 might be where the next $10 of value is.  Sep 08 contract trades at a 0.80 premium to the Aug 08!


No. 4




BHP Billiton Limited (BHP)




Short was the way & achieved the $37.00 objective trading today down to $36.69.  Traders think its time to turn & go long for a look back at $40.80-$41.00


No. 5



JB Hi-Fi Group Pty Ltd (JBH)




Fierce competition is sensitive in NZ, where it appears Real Groovy Records has been bought to their knees.  Buyers all week from the $10.70 area, today at $12.00 as traders look for a test of $13.30-50
