Stock Picks Recap for 5/29/15

With each stock's recap, we will include a (with market support) or (without market support) tag, designating whether the trade triggered with or without market directional support at the time. Anything in the first five minutes will be considered WITHOUT market support because market direction cannot be determined that early. ETF calls do not require market support, and are thus either winners or losers.

From the report, ALGN gapped over the trigger, no play.

LTRPA triggered short (with market support) and didn't work:
