Homey Action in This Sector

The homebuilders are back at it again this morning, thanks to a spike higher in LGIH after earnings. LGIH was actually one of the worst charts in the sector headed into today. But a 17% gap higher sure does ease the pain for longs.  Regarding the premier homies, DHI is still one of the leaders which continues to act well. On the updated daily...

Still King of the Castle

Bulls mounted another afternoon rally off morning lows for a respectable close today.  Despite the small cap weakness, leaders like AMZN FB (below on the daily, and green at fresh highs) GOOGL NFLX remain constructive technically. Until that changes, it is likely going to be tough sledding for bears to inflict serious damage on the tape, even...

Don't Hate the Vendor; Hate the Payment Game

We have another pretty slow, consolidating day of action on our hands in the market, with the GRPO, gold miner, and SNAP weakness occupying the attention of many trader.  Bulls seem to be defending 2370 on the S&P 500 Index for now. So, we will see if that continues into the heart of the afternoon.  As for fresh long ideas, Jack Dorsey's...

Taking Notice of These Moves

The broad market is still giving the look and feel of consolidating recent gains, as the indices pull in to kick off the week. Case in point: The small cap stocks in the Russell 2000 Index gapped below the $138 level on the IWM ETF, a sign in and of itself of a consolidating market with upside momentum on the shelf for now. Moreover, the weak...

Hacky Sack Penalty: No Self Serves or Misses

It looks like marijuana play GWPH, a name we have recently been tracking for Members due to its improved and impressive chart, had a "fat finger" type of move earlier today, as a headline hit the wires that, "Mentor Capital, Inc. (MNTR) Buys $1M in GW Pharmaceuticals (GWPH) Stock." Pothead party foul notwithstanding, GWPH remains a viable long...

Chips Chipping Away

In light of the AMD weakness this morning, along with NVDA pulling back further, semiconductors as a group seem ripe for a long overdue pullback. The issue for broad market bulls is whether that capital, from the chips, can flow to other sectors which have been craving rotations, such as retail and energy. If so, then a pullback in the SMH, ETF...

A Great Bull Market in Toilet Paper is Underway

Lost in the shuffle, er, dispenser, of the SNAP IPO hoopla is the continued strength in some of the consumer staples.  Kimberly Clark, for example, the toiler paper vendor, among other bathroom necessities, is sporting a tight bull flag after recently breaking back over its 200-day moving average. The strength is apparent on the daily chart,...

A Better Lock on This IPO

While the Snapchat IPO is predictably igniting plenty of buzz today, I have my eye on an IPO from late-last year which recently woke up with a vengeance.  The Trade Desk, an ad tech company, below on the daily timeframe, has been surging over the last few years, shaking off both an initial earnings sell-off plus an offering during that time. ...

It's a Snappy Consolidation, See?

In front of the SNAP IPO set to begin trading any moment now, stocks are broadly consolidating yesterday's explosive move higher.  A few catch-up biotech plays we had been flagging for Members, namely CARA and EXAS, are surging, while a name like ONCE remains in contention to follow suit.  The familiar routine, however, of gauging just how...

The Problem is Not the Problem

“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem” -Captain Jack Sparrow After a initial move down, healthcare IT firm Veeva Systems is clawing back with a purpose today. Without question, the broad market action is helping VEEV bulls.  But, pending today's close, buyers have done a noteworthy job of stepping into...

Pecking Away at Micro Versus Macro

It seems as though everyone has macro analysis about the market and economy these days. But when many are looking macro, perhaps it is correct to look micro.  Digging below the surface, the homebuilders as a group have been thriving, even before the Trump speech and today's gap up. We know the obvious plays are the likes of DHI and LEN. But...

Mr. Market: If You Were Me, Which Sector Would You Fire?

The selling today in front of President Trump's speech to a join session of Congress tonight sure is building tension, not unlike the famous television "boardroom scenes" we saw in The Apprentice years ago.  The issue becomes which stocks and sectors could rally or get hit off Trump's remarks tonight. I am not too interested in front-running...

Two Charts for Good Perspective This Afternoon

Stock are broadly coming in here, with Nasdaq and small cap weakness erasing some of the progress bulls made yesterday, especially in the IWM (ETF for the small caps in the Russell 2000 Index).  Headed into the heart of the afternoon, we are keying off two main charts for perspective as to how much selling may be to come. First, the QQQ, ETF...

Silver Linings in the Playbook for the Target Miss

Target is being properly punished by the market this morning with a rather ugly gap down after weak earnings and guidance.  On the surface, this type of action may seem to reinforce the bear case that brick-and-mortar, or non-Amazon, retail is largely dead. And while that may be true on some level, it cannot be true on every level.  First,...
