Interwoven (IWOV 25-3/16) is soaring higher today, already gaining more than 26 percent in trading so far. This sudden burst of strength comes after analysts at a brokerage firm picked up IWOV, and started the company with a "strong buy" rating.

The stock gapped three points at the opening bell and continues to climb. Unfortunately, the stock may find resistance waiting for it in the form of its descending 10-day moving average, which sits just above the 26 level. Since slipping below this trendline on February 1, the stock has been on a steady decline over the past weeks, unable to overcome resistance created by the moving average. <

The AMEX Networking Index (NWX - 664.1) briefly trekked to a new 52-week low in yesterday's trading. However, the index was able to reverse course and eke out a modest gain for the day. The NWX's probing for support will be aided today by earnings news from CIENA (CIEN - 76-13/16). The company beat the Street estimate by three cents per share. In pre-market action the stock is trading nearly ten percent higher. The index will probably test potential resistance at the round-number 700 level today, an area that will also correspond with the declining 10-day moving average. <

In front of key earnings reports from industry compatriots Dell Computer (DELL - 22-15/16) and Hewlett-Packard (HWP - 34.39), Gateway (GTW - 19.76) saw a large block trade on its June 22-1/2 call on Wednesday. A 4,000-contract block crossed the tape on the out-of-the-money option at a price of $2.10 per contract. After gapping sharply lower in late November, the shares have been languishing in a range between 15 and 25. A long-time trender along its 20-month moving average, the stock made its first monthly close below this moving average in September. This proved to be a harbinger of things to come. <
