Cogent, Inc. (Public, NASDAQ:COGT)

The volume has been increasing in shares of Cogent (COGT) on the up days and it looks like the stock is working through supply at 15.50. If the stock can trade above 15.50 it is going to put a lot of shorts in a bad position. The chart looks like there isn't much potential for resistance until the mid-2005 lows near 20.50. If it breaks out I wouldnt risk more than a dollar.
