It Can Buy Me a Boat

Into the bell, stocks held the line again despite the GILD carnage today. Even UAA looks like it may get a breather, short-term. If the bulls take charge again, keep an eye on the recreational boating space. One of our Members noted BC a while back, and that has acted well. In addition, the smaller Malibu Boats, below on the daily chart, has...

A Slow Motion Battle on Two Fronts

The action today smacks of a market continuing to probe, but hold, near-term support on both the IWM (small caps) at the $134 level and the 2290 level on the actual S&P 500 cash index. Both of those levels are places we have been keying off for Members in terms of whether any type of meaningful downside will flow from the vast array of market...

Excuse Me, I Believe You Have My Staples

On a morning where biotechs as a group are trying to fight off a vicious Gilead post-earnings gap down, the small caps in the Russell 2000 Index continue to push lower.  For a while now, one of the more defined risks for a broad market pullback or correction in the winter months has been the underperformance of those small caps. And that is all...

Fireworks at Gilead's Castle Tonight

On a night where Disney is reporting earnings, it is interesting that large cap biotech is sporting a Magic Kingdom type of monthly chart, seen below. Specifically, failure of bulls to hold here and see the vaunted biotech find its footing after a multi-year correction opens the possibility for some type of a Tower or Castle chart pattern,...

Slippery When Wet Markets

It is only fitting in dead of winter that have markets seemingly skidding on black ice, not easily seen when we open green like this morning but which becomes more apparent once bulls attempt to venture to new highs.  Specifically, the small cap stocks in the Russell 2000 Index and crude oil are two notable weak spots today, likely not only...

The Strong Silent Type

You likely do not hear much on social finance or the financial news media about Emerson Electric Company, a St. Louis-based diversified global manufacturing company.  But despite year-over-year earnings decline for this quarter, reported this morning, EMR is surging up and out of a tidy daily weekly base, seen below.  To extrapolate, this is...

Sometimes it Rains

"Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains." - Bull Durham (1988) I did not much trading today, instead opting to refine our list of the best performers in a notably sluggish tape.  Small caps remain a downside concern, but we know bears have had major issues sustain any type of downside momentum in this market of late.  We...

Aftermath of a Super Celebration

After some good action on Friday, we have a sluggish tape on our hands today. One possible reason would be too many market players fighting off some of the aftermath of their Super Bowl parties and celebrations, if not libations.  But we saw this type of action last week, too, before Friday's rally. So, with the small caps in the Russell 2000...

Good Super Bowl, Bad Super Bowl

Following up on recent blog posts, it may depends on your bias, but so far NRG is emerging as a possible Super Bowl winner, given that the big game is being played in Houston's NRG Stadium. Of course, the stock's rally may have literally nothing to do with the extra media attention the firm is receiving, since the chart has been steadily...

Surviving the Backdraft from FireEye

After its latest earnings, well, fire, the market seems to be suggesting that the issues FEYE is facing are limited to that firm on a micro sense, since other cybersecurity plays are some of the best performing this morning. Beyond the DATA FTNT gaps higher, CHKP CYBR PANW PPFT SYMC are just a few HACK holdings acting well.  Overall, as we have...

Big Earnings and Super Bowl Bets

Earnings are loaded tonight, between AMZN V CMG GPRO FEYE AMGN, and others. Chipotle versus its 200-day moving average, below now, is going to be critical for that stocks. And AMZN is facing a similar technical predicament as FB did last evening, back to prior highs after a multi-week rally.  Overall, it was a slow day on the indices, with...

Another Chance for U.S. Steel on Groundhog Day

Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania sits eighty-four miles northeast of Pittsburgh and U.S. Steel headquarters. Seeing as Punxsutawney Phil the Groundhog saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter today, that part of Pennsylvania seems to be even more in focus given the valiant comeback letter X is enjoying today.  On the X daily chart,...

Gold and Silver Miners: Let's End the Suspense

Following a multi-quarter correction after an explosive rally which began a little over a year ago off a potentially major bear market bottom, gold and silver miners are threatening to emerge.  For every encoring chart in the space, like PAAS below on the daily timeframe (a silver miner with earnings on February 14th), there are laggards like...

Mixed Sentiment

Headed into the FOMC Announcement at the bottom of the hour, stocks and indeed many markets are mixed if not indecisive about how position for a few unknown risks. For starters, The Fed may adopt a more hawkish tone than markets anticipate at the moment, not to mention testing President Trump with some subtle swipes.  What we know with a bit...

Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Diabetes

Regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum and, specifically, Starbucks CEO Howard Schulz's pledge to hire 10,000 refugees, the chart of the firm is clearly taking a turn for the worse after recent earnings.  A less political and more common sense explanation may simply be one of brand maturity and stretched price points, where...
