We May Be in the Tommy Cheeseballs Phase of This Market

Just in time for summer at the Jersey Shore, we may be in for a few days of highly speculative action as even the trashy, downtrodden names get involved in the fun. As an example, while their charts are actually decent, the 3D printing plays perking up may be a sign that extreme animal spirits are rising up, as the opening market gap higher...

It's Not Always About the Breakouts

We often discuss looking for signs of actual buyers when a stock pulls back before assuming any type of bottom is in place. While a bull run may essentially bail out dip-buyers time and time again, it is still useful to keep this discipline in mind, especially considering the carnage even in this market in the retail and energy sectors over the...

It's Bell BIVV Devoe Time for Biotech Stocks

It appears as though the small and mid market capitalization biotechnology issues housed in the XBI ETF are catching an impressive rotation early on this morning.  For a while now, biotech bulls have been practically taunted with the numerous instances that the sector would appear well set-up to sustain rotation, only to sink back inside its...

Optical Illusions Back in Play

The opticals ( fiber- optic component makers) have seen rotation within the group for a while now, with leadership alternating in an endless game of musical chairs. On the back of Finisar's earnings rally from last night, it is worth noting the former momentum darling perfectly held where it should have for bulls on the weekly chart, below....

The Best Time to Buy Snapchat is When There Are Filters in the Street

We have largely eschewed the notion of fooling around with SNAP much since its IPO, mostly due to the lethargic price action and overall trend down.  Today, SNAP is off by more than 4% and acting poorly as I write this, yet again as the stock comes down to test its $17 IPO level.  I will say this: When the DrudgeReport features a...

Bad News for Disney

Disney seems to be under distribution, and I do not mean it is distributing one of its feature films to movie theaters across the country.  Instead, observing the daily chart, below, DIS seems to be undergoing heavy selling by institutions, as seen by the heavy and steady sell volume bars on the bottom pane of the chart. The drawdown that ESPN...

Does "Don't Fight the Fed" Only Apply When Bernanke Was Doing His Thing?

The Bernanke years as Fed Chair are beginning to fade away now, as Janet Yellen continues to slowly tighten. At one point, Dr. Bernanke could seemingly do no wrong in the eyes of markets, as his easy monetary policies made even Alan Greenspan blush.  "Don't Fight the Fed," is an old Wall Street axiom considered perhaps too general but often...

A Dovish Raise Looms

The Fed is expected to raise rates this afternoon, at the bottom of the hour to be precise. However, given that this FOMC will feature Fed Members' forecasts plus a Yellen presser, we could easily see plenty of dovish language to couch any rate hike, in effect keeping markets satiated.  We have been tracking the rate-sensitive sectors of late,...

An Interesting Head Start

Amid a quiet open for most equities, it is interesting to say the least for Treasuries to gap up in front of the FOMC later today.  On the TLT daily chart, below, with this ETF pushing up and off its 200-day moving average it would seem to price in the Fed not being particularly hawkish today, even if they do raise rates. Specifically, the...

Gambling in Front of the FOMC

On an otherwise slow-bouncing market into the Fed fireworks tomorrow, with some distraction via the OMER TSLA rallies and the gold miner divergence we looked at earlier, we saw some intriguing sector rotation again below the surface.  The casinos, and not just the major ones, are heating up. As an example, the "locals" Vegas casino operator,...

Outback: Australian for Relative Strength

Cheesecake Factory, Inc., is one of the more visible losers this morning, as the causal dining chain notorious for long wait times and heaping portions of high carbohydrate dishes updated poor guidance this morning.  While CAKE is down more than 10% as I write this, we ought not throw the entire causal dining baby out with the tap water. ...

A Lingering Appetite

To revisit a working thesis we discussed previously, the notion that the transition from Obama to Trump would automatically mean a much more bearish stance on the firearms plays seems to be quietly under heavy scrutiny by the market right now. And rather than become redundant on the short-term rotation out of tech, it is all the more alluring...

Exxon, Risk Off

A fairly obvious rotation out of technology/discretionary leaders, such as AAPL AMZN FB GOOGL, among others, is materializing this morning on the back of the same theme to close out last week. While the Nasdaq is at least undergoing a shakeout, if not more, what seems to be keeping things afloat on many levels is the lifeblood of a bull market:...
