VirnetXHolding Corporation (NYSEMKT:VHC) Could see a huge potential breakout before the end of the Year ! The stock soared 19% on heavy volume on Friday, after the company said it will receive $23 million from Microsoft Corp. Under the terms of the agreement, Microsoft will pay $23 million to VirnetX to settle the dispute and to expand Microsoft's existing license on VirnetX patents. The new licence is great news. From a technical standpoint, the stock shows a promising chart that could be ready for another up-spike next week. The chart shows that $6 looks to be the next resistance level. If the stock breaks through that we could see some major gains by the end of the year. The stock is also trading a discount to its 200 EMA. This sets up the play for action as its undervalued status is another huge catalyst. The stock was on my radar screen on Thursday and I published here the alert. VHC should be on your radars now.

Diana Shipping Inc. (NYSE:DSX) is currently trading below the $7 mark, a huge discount from the 12-month high of 13.93. The stock failed to continue its bearish momentum last week, closing the session on Friday with a strong bullish engulfing candlestick on HIGH volume. This fact could create a strong move higher at least in nearest term testing 7.80 area. The bias is bullish in nearest term. DSX's chart suggest that increased buy side activity could push share prices to much higher levels. I believe that the bullish accumulation witnessed during Friday's session is a prelude to what traders could see tomorrow.

Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA) closed Friday's trading session with a 10% gain and near the High of Day (HOD), which is a sign of a bullish continuation pattern. The stock broke out of a descending channel and looks to resume the trend higher. Specifically, there are some indicators suggesting it could rise to $3 in the coming week. Technically speaking, the strong Bullish Candlestick formation on Friday confirms that buying pressure came into the stock, since share prices advanced from open to close. In addition, MACD gave a new bullish cross. Stay tuned.

Yelp Inc (NYSE:YELP) traded nicely on Friday and closed up 4%. The stock opened at $52.49 then moved to a high of $54.80 and closed at $54.59 for close in the green. The stock for now has a potential double bottom pattern and broke out of falling wedge last week. MACD is now rising and momentum indicators are showing signs or early turns. Looking at technical chart above there appears to be little resistance from keeping YELP from moving towards much higher levels next week. YELP is poised to surge upwards IMO. Stop 49

AOL, Inc. (NYSE:AOL) broke out to new highs Friday on high volume. The short/medium term uptrend is intact and signals further bullishness on this stock. Go long on the break of Friday’s high at 48.21

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Looking at the technical chart above the stock is inching closer and closer to another breakout move. Buying momentum is still positive and strengthening. Breakout watch above 81.16

ZIOPHARM Oncology Inc. (NASDAQ:ZIOP) broke above resistance in Friday's trading session after a small period of consolidation. I still like this stock and will be watching it again on Monday, expecting to see a continuation move.

Stocks to Watch for December 19, 2014

( click to enlarge )

Clean Diesel Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:CDTI) is testing the resistance line of its two-month descending channel. A break above 2.10 should lead to a target in the 2.65-2.8 area. The chart above has some noticeable momentum indicators suggesting that the stock is ready to make a move. The strongest sign of a bullish momentum is the MACD indicator which has just started to increase. In addition, the RSI looks like it is on the edge of crossing back over 50% level and stochastics are edging out of oversold range as well. Accumulation on this stock remains elevated, even after the downtrend and OBV is also showing positive signs on the stock. Price is expected to at least rally the next resistance at $2.65 and even go higher to test the next key resistance level at $3. The forecast is valid only if the stock price stays above $1.80. Honestly, i think the stock is attractive at these levels and the technical setup and fundamental growth prospects look very promising IMO.

Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ:RMBS) has already recouped its recent losses and the stock looks poised to break resistance at $12. The short-term outlook stays cautious till the stock closes conclusively above this level. So far the technical chart is still showing buy signal with stock trading above all major EMAs. Short-term traders can hold their longs with a stop at $10.99.

Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) The short-term bullish momentum continued today. The stock has recovered nicely and can potentially set-up very well for a swing-trade if the stock breaks through the resistance level at $78.88. Stay tuned.

VirnetX Holding Corporation (NYSEMKT:VHC) had a strong day as the stock closed up 35 cents or 7.7% on decent volume. Today’s high of $4.96 is now resistance for the continuation move. The stock is back on top over 20-day EMA and MACD is showing positive momentum, while KD line also show buy signal as %K line is on top of %D line.

SolarCity Corp (NASDAQ:SCTY) In order to stage a bullish trend reversal, the stock price needs to break above the downtrend line. I’m a buyer of SCTY on a break of the downtrend line.
