Altria Group (NYSE:MO) - STRONG SELL -

Bristol-Meyers (NYSE:BMY) - SELL -

Altria Group (NYSE:MO)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: STRONG SELL

The group manufactures and sells cigarettes in the United States. The subsidiaries and affiliates of the company manufactures, markets and sells tobacco products and food products worldwide.

The near-term direction looks to be down for MO's volume. Incidentally, the most recent stochastic readings imply that MO should leg downward during the short-term. In conclusion, the stock's price climbed upward for MO in the most recent 5 day period.

Our research indicates significant downside ahead for MO. We believe stop/losses should be raised in an attempt to preserve capital.

Bristol-Meyers (NYSE:BMY)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: SELL

Bristol-Meyers produces and distributes medicines.

The short-term direction appears to be higher for BMY's share volume. At the same time, short-term stochastics reflect levels commonly associated with a move lower. Subsequently, prices headed to higher ground for BMY during the last week.

Our research indicates probable downside for BMY from current prices. BMY could see losses from here but those losses may not be striking on a percent basis.

StockPickReport.Com Rating: STRONG BUY

IBM provides customer solutions with the help of advanced information technology.

The short-term direction looks to be losing momentum in regards to the stock's daily volume. Likewise, out technical analysts are of the opinion that the stock should step sharply higher based on IBM's new short-term oscillating stochastic reading. Lastly, IBM traders should take note that the stock's closing price edged up during the last 5 day period.

Our research indicates significant upside ahead for IBM. We believe targets should be lifted to allow for strong percent gains from current levels.

Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO)

StockPickReport.Com Rating: STRONG SELL

Coca-Cola manufactures, markets and distributes nonalcoholic beverage concentrates and syrups in over 200 countries around the world.

Investors might want to take note that KO's closing price edged to higher ground in the last 5 day period. Meanwhile, a technical reading of the stocks's most recent near-term stochastic figure leads us to propose that the stock is about to change direction around the corner. Subsequently, daily volume looks like it's on the way down.

Our research indicates possible upside from current prices for KO. However, we do not advise the initiation of new long positions at these prices. Profit-taking may be ahead for KO.

StockPickReport.Com Rating: BUY

CheckFree provides transaction processing services, software and related products to financial institutions and businesses.

The bias seemed to be to higher ground for CKFR of late. Incidentally, based on short-term stochastics, we believe the stock will be moving higher. Lastly, the short-term bias appears to be on the way down regarding the stock's daily volume.

Our research indicates probable upside for CKFR from current prices. CKFR could see gains from here but those gains may not be striking on a percent basis compared to a stock with a Strong Buy rating.

For clarification on how we rate CKFR a BUY, please visit:
