LLL had been consolidating following its fall from almost $115 in late 2008. In mid-September, L-3 had a false breakout from a triple top after a string of high-volume days of buying.

On October 28, at $73.35, I said, "This pattern often produces a round of profit taking, which drives prices below the breakout point, and that appears to be the situation with LLL. Now at its 200-day moving average with a very oversold stochastic, LLL appears to be a good buy with a target of $95 to $100."

With the stock approaching those levels and looking as though it will continue its march higher, I would now like to adjust the target for LLL to $105 for traders and $110 for long-term buyers.
