By the Book

In addition to the homebuilders, the biotechnology stocks of the small and mid-cap variety housed in the XBI ETF are also sustaining impressive sector rotations today. The price action in XBI, below on the daily chart, is "by the book" (in terms of its recent breakout, backtest, then resumption of the uptrend today in an explosive manner) and...

Quiet Symmetry to These Homes

To follow-up from our analysis last week, the homebuilders continue to quietly outperform today.  Both the XHB and ITB ETFs related to the homebuilding complex are near or at session highs as I write this, while the indices in general are flat and mixed.  Equity bulls continues to pound the table on the idea that sector rotations will keep any...

A Silent Scream from Sotheby's

While far from a premier leading stock, high-end auction house Sotheby's (trading under ticker: BID) has some interesting correlations with the S&P 500 Index when you track the performance going back several decades.  Long-time readers will recall we used to track this correlation previously, full well knowing that all correlations are bound to...

Foot Locker: Turn That Retail Frown Upside Down

Markets are settling into a bit of a scrum into the weekend, with bears yet to push the envelope off the morning weakness (See: a red VXX as I write this).  One bullish aspect of the action of late would be retail plays finally showing some heart, specifically in the face of yesterday's harsh selling in the sector. Recall how long the retail...

A Simple Test of Violence

As quaint as it may seen, the VIX ETF, VXX, has ben unable to hold over its 20-day simple moving average since Election Day.  To be sure, I am not one to put too much stock in technical analysis of the VXX, since it is, after all, several times removed from equities. Still, the setup is simple, easy to track, and should give insight as to...

It May Be Time for Solars to Finally See the Light

The First Solar reversal today, after yesterday's earnings drubbing, is nothing short of stunning when you consider how accustomed we have become to the usual solar heartbreak.  Nonetheless, when you see a likely close today over $37, a level highlighted on the updated daily chart for FSLR, below, it offers some evidence of a potential bottom...

Battle Lines Drawn for the Afternoon

Before I head in to film my usual Midday Video for Members, note the Nasdaq's top stocks in the QQQ ETF, below on an intraday timeframe, is toying with the $130 level on numerous occasions today. We looked at a longer-term view of the Nasdaq earlier. But, here, the intraday look shows the bounce off the morning lows may be setting up a new leg...

Tesla: Here Comes Your Throwback Test

After Tesla earnings last night, the resurgent momentum darling is coming back down to roughly the scene from which it broke out earlier this month.  On the zoomed-out daily chart, below, note the down-sloping light blue line, stretching back to 2015, which kept a lid on the high beta, controversial stock for a good while. But with Tesla bulls...

Time to Launch Tesla, Insane Mode

Tesla earnings headline tonight's post-bell action, with the momentum stock likely needing to hold $250 below to continue its constructive price movement since late-last year.  In addition, Square will try to cement its newfound reputation as being Jack Dorsey's better half, in light of how dreadful TWTR has been.  Fitbit has a pretty low bar...

Frozen Sideways

Despite giveback in the energy, solars, and materials complex today, the rest of the tape is far from what bears have been expecting.  As we head into the heart of the afternoon, the major indices appear to be frozen sideways more than anything else. A green Dow and the QQQ flipping green, too, as I write this may leave the door open yet to a...

Turnarounds Seldom Turn

Warren Buffett once famously said that, “turnarounds seldom turn," when it comes to businesses trying to right the ship. Regarding Mobileye after earnings this morning, however, if the "turn" is directed by the Israeli firm's self-driving software it may defy Mr. Buffett's general axiom.  On the MBLY daily chart, below, we can see the progress...

First Things First for First Solar

First Solar is one of the more visible firms reporting earnings after the bell tonight.  The solar sector has been an excellent destroyer of capital for a good while now. But if a turnaround is imminent, then FSLR earnings tonight could easily advance some of the minor technical progress we have seen of late. The TAN sector ETF, below on the...

It May Not Be a Zero-Sum Game, After All

With Wal-Mart surging higher today after earnings, combined with Amazon clearing five-month resistance, it may be worth reassessing the ubiquitous notion now that AMZN's success necessarily equals failure for most other things retail. If that were for the case, perchance, then why is WMT still holding the low-$60s area with confidence, the...

Homebuilder Hunters

Lost in the shuffle of some earnings rallies from pre-market reports today, namely Home Depot, Macy's, and Wal-Mart, is the strength in the HD-related space of housing.  Specifically, the homebuilders in the XHB ETF, below on the daily timeframe, may very well be ripe to follow HD's lead higher from a rather coiled chart pattern. Note how many...

Lighting Up in the Dead of Winter

Stocks are off a bit as we head into a long, holiday weekend with markets closed on Monday.  One part of the market which has been particulalry impressive of late has been the consumer staples, with UL front and center, spiking higher this morning in light of the Kraft takeover drama.  Typically, those defensive staples housed in the XLP ETF...
