Plot empties after using datetick

I am trying to use datetick method to label one of the axes i have but when i use datetick, the ticks are displayed properly, but the plot area is cleared and plot vanishes. Here is a simplified example of what i am trying to do:

    plot(rand(10));
    startDate = datenum('01-01-2009');
    endDate = datenum('12-31-2009');
    xData = linspace(startDate,endDate,5);
    set(gca,'XTick',xData);
    datetick('x','dd-mmm','keepticks');

Any suggestions?

Thanks

clc;clear; close all
startDate = datenum('01-01-2009');
endDate = datenum('12-31-2009');
xData = linspace(startDate,endDate,10);% changed to match size of data
plot(xData,rand(10));
%set(gca,'XTick',xData);  %maybe not necessary?
datetick('x','dd-mmm','keepticks');
