Competing Forces

Sluggish action from the major indices appears to stand in stark contrast to some exciting action in select names throughout the tape, such as PFPT or UCTT, among others. This may indeed be the top before the drop. But bears, as usual, must force the issue since the overarching trend is still higher in this uniquely resilient market.  On the...

Young Prospects Coming of Age

Using Facebook in 2013 as a blueprint of sorts, the likes of Snapchat and Twitter, among others, can only hope to emulate FB's subsequent share price action up until the present.  SNAP notably perked up yesterday, with the numerous short-sellers in its float suddenly not feeing quite so comfortable. And now we have TWTR, below on the daily...

Work-Life Balance for Millennials

Snapchat is justly receiving tons of attention and praise today, as the beaten-down stock is finally waking up a bit since its IPO and is back over the key $15 level (first daily chart, below, sporting the triangle breakout). Lest we forget about the work-life millennial balance, however, on the work end of the spectrum we also have Twilio,...

Early Channel Checks at Wynn Boston Harbor

As police struggle to properly construct the most accurate timeline of the Mandalay Bay shooting, it appears that MGM (Mandalay Bay's owner) could easily face plenty of civil lawsuits (negligence, wrongful death with plaintiffs using both torts possibly to seek punitive damages from MGM's deep pockets). While MGM is short-term a bit oversold, I...

Beer and Circus Ain't What it Used to Be for Disney

Much of my focus remains on the long side in this market, given the historical resilience and nonstop rotations. Nonetheless, a few interesting shorts are popping (or dropping) up here and there, with Disney acting as a good example for us to examine.  Disney is, of course, a Dow component and was a major winner from 2009 into 2015. Since then,...

Rorschach Tests

The lithium ETF, LIT, below on the daily chart, is a pretty good example of the "pick your bias" nature of the stock market pretty much always, but especially at this moment in time.  Bears will argue a non-confirmed double-top is afoot, while bulls will point to the strong trend over the last year as evidence per se of buyers firmly in...

Another Long Shot at the Copa

As a quick follow-up to this blog post  from around Labor Day, the South American airlines continue to operate impressively and are decidedly off the radar of many traders.  Whether it be AZUL, below on the daily timeframe, setting back up on the long side above $29, or Copa (CPA), GOL, LTM (with AVH as a catch-up play) South American growth...

That Special Diamond at Wal-Mart

Some positive news flow is helping Wal-Mart gap higher this morning, up and out of daily chart base consolidation.  Recall that it was not too long ago that WMT was considered obsolete, rendered as much by Jeff Bezos and his budding empire destroying all things retail. While we generally respect and accept AMZN's dominance, it is also likely...

GE Not Very "Technically Correct" On Columbus Day

On this Columbus Day, with the bond market closed with stocks open, one of Wall Street's iconic stocks from the Nifty Fifty, GE, is not very "technically correct," seen below on the quarterly chart.  Simply put, GE is one of the few mega cap stocks in the market which remains in a long-term downtrend (lower highs, lower lows) since the turn of...

A Hardcore Pawn Strategy

Gold bugs have a few more glimmers of hope for a new bull run today, beyond seeing the promising action to start the week in the precious metals and most miners, themselves.  Specifically, to return to a "tell" we looked at previously, pawn stores can typically mirror the price of gold and, at times, front-run it.  Thus, with  EZCORP, Inc.,...

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery

With another benign open this morning, it is worth considering that we could easily be at a phase in this rally where the most downtrodden, left-for-dead high beta names suddenly reverse higher and trap latecomer shorts.  Fitbit is one such idea, on the first daily chart, below. Note FIT has reclaimed its 200-day moving average and continues to...

New Retail Leaders Are No Joke

While it may be enjoyable to poke fun at the notion of discount stores emerging as new retail leaders, the reality is that names like FIVE OLLI, even DG DLTR have all been acting notably well of late, ignoring the department store shellackings we saw with JCP JWN M, to boot.  Regarding Five Below, the zoomed-out daily chart shows a strong...

Tomato, Tomahto, Record, Rekkid

Headed into the heart of the afternoon portion of today's trading session it appears we have an old-fashioned melt-up making place in the Dow and S&P 500, and the small caps continue to drift up. Meanwhile, the Nasdaq's top 100 market-weighted ETF, QQQ, is just breaking out from a multi-month consolidation as Netflix shines on a price hike for...

Italy Plus Norway Equals Excellence

Crude oil is snapping back hard this morning, seen by strength the USO ETF, as are energy stocks housed in the XLE sector ETF.  With the XLE pushing back over its 200-day moving average for the first time in a while as I write this, it is worth pointing out some names which are perhaps off the radar of most traders in America. Specifically, two...
