There's Only One Thing Wrong with Netflix...

And that would be Netflix cancelled the brilliant comedy series, "Lilyhammer," after three seasons  ("Lilyhammer" was the first exclusive content offered by the Netflix  service).  Beyond that minor gripe, though, Netflix as a market leader is acting brilliantly with earnings now out of the way.  The first hurdle for NFLX was breaching $148...

GrubHub Making the Case That Everybody Eats

In the midst of the busiest earnings week of the year so far, Grubhub is shooting higher this morning after beating the top and bottom lines.  GRUB is just one of many software plays which merit attention in a growth cycle for this segment of the market.

Underwater Too Long

Today's peculiar upside reversal in the precious metals' miners comes at an important technical spot.  Not only is GDX (and GDXJ, for the junior miners) oversold, seen on the first chart below for the senior gold miners' ETF, but GLD, ETF for the yellow metal itself, has backtested its 200-day moving average (yellow line on second daily chart,...

Chewing Through Nostalgic Areas

To follow-up on yesterday's blog post, both CMG and WYNN not only survived earnings but are furthering their respective bull cases for long-term turnarounds today.  Wynn Resorts, below on the monthly chart, did an admirable job breaching $105 a few weeks back. And now is flashing many signs of valiantly holding above it. I suspect the net major...

Kaiser Aluminum Söze Convincing the World

On the back of completely different reactions to earnings by aluminum giant Alcoa versus steel magnet X, you get the sense one of these industries is telling a story the other is not buying. The bull story rests on the price action in the aluminum stocks. As one of our Members noted this morning, beyond Alcoa we also have improving price action...

Rotation and Turnarounds

In recent blog posts, we have been discussing the bulls' attempts to keeping rotating in order to hold onto the consecutive gaps higher to begin the week.  Headed into the heart of earnings season the next few days, consider two turnaround plays tonight, too. Both CMG and WYNN have been displaying excellent price action in recent months. And...

China Stocks: The Art of More

Strength in BIDU today is cementing the recent moves in China internet plays like BABA JD MOMO, even SINA WB. As for fresh ideas, Netease.com, below on the daily chart, looks as ripe as any before May 10th earnings. Note the channel breakout threatening today. I want to see if this moves holds into the bell, before a push over $280 for a long...

Building Up the Land

Caterpillar, a Dow component, is up more than 6% this morning after earnings. The global machinery play is clearly tethered to global growth expectations.

Gap 'n Flat: Now, What?

This morning's gap higher sure was picturesque for bulls. But as the intraday IWM chart shows, below, it was a gap and flat type of day. Indeed, it was a grind after the open. Still, bears failed to get their fade this time around, which raises the specter of a new leg higher in stocks. And, beyond that, equity bulls were able to crush the VIX...

This Market Needs a Kite Experiment

Much like Founding Father Benjamin Franklin, we may need to experiment with a kite in this market to see how much electricity it can conduct.  Specifically, KITE, a mid-cap biotehnologu stock, is sporting an attractive daily chart (below) in front of May 8th earnings. This chart is clearly one of the better XBI plays which have held up well...

An Extra Little Bonus

Lost in the shuffle of the French election, swirling headlines about politics in the U.S., and a loaded week of earnings into this massive gap higher this morning in the broad market is some more mergers and acquisitions activity.  Specially, m edical device titan Becton, Dickinson reached a deal to acquire BCR (C.R. Bard)  another medical...

Will Citi Get Another Bailout?

Despite various upside spurts this week, such as yesterday's broad market rally, the lingering issue for the market beyond energy weakness has been the lagging big banks.  Even though the major financial firms are still well above their pre-U.S. election levels from last early-November, the truth of the matter is that they are looking heavier...

No Glory Days for SLoB

Oil services giant, Schlumberger, below on the weekly timeframe, is down more than 3% after earnings this morning. For a while now, the energy sector has lagged equites in general, with energy stocks themselves lagging crude oil at various junctures, too.

Little SHOP of Horrors for Shorts

With the rather sharp (albeit brief and aggressively bought) shakeouts from BREXIT last summer and then the election in the U.S. last November still a vivid memory for market players perhaps too many were leaning cautious in front of this weekend's election in France for us to see yet another "sell the rumor, buy the news" event.  Instead,...
