In the meantime, I’m researching on another two promising stocks namely AptarGroup, Inc. (NYSE: ATR, stock) and eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY, stock) which will announce their respective earning after market close today as well. eBay seems to have strong resistance at $35 per share which might make the stock looks risky while ATR is hitting the wall of resistance at $38 per share.

AptarGroup is a supplier of a range of dispensing systems for the personal care, fragrance/cosmetic, pharmaceutical, household and food/beverage markets while eBay provides online marketplaces for the sale of goods and services, online payments
