The Hipster Rotation

Since rotation is the name of the game for bulls (see biotech this week as evidence), as long as that continues then we must consider some trendy "hipster" plays like ETSY and FIZZ, seen respectively below on their daily timeframes.  As you can see, and as one of our Members astutely noted about ETSY, both charts are sporting impressive...

Hold My Beer While I Look for a Bottom in Steels

Thanks, in part, to an upgrade by  Deutsche Bank this morning, AK Steel (AKS) is leading the steel sector in a long overdue snapback rally as we speak.  For a while now, steel stocks have disappointed not only dedicated steel/materials bulls but also those who were adamant about the "Trump Trade" prevailing in an endless series of wins for...

Karma is on Hold for Pharma

Against the backdrop of a pill-popping population and pill-peddling physicians more than toeing the line over the Hippocratic Oath , i t felt so right and righteous to see the pharma stocks mostly get clobbered in recent quarters.  On a nightly basis for Members since late-2015, we were consistently bearish the likes of MNK NBIX HZNP VRX,...

The Most Beautiful Solar Wall You Have Ever Seen

For the politically-charged dogmatic types, it may very well prove to be the ultimate plot twist if solar stocks performed terribly in the Obama years only to then bottom in the first few months of a Trump presidency and stage a new bull run. First things first, though, and with Trump floating the idea of a "Solar Wall" on the U.S./Mexico...

Come on, Kryptonite!

At the risk of a "Mush" situation, it looks as though we have some form of speculative fervor taking place in the biotech arena, with healthcare names on the outskirts of town also getting a boost. At this point, some are rather extended while others are not, which of course means we need to hone in on the ones setting up at present.  To...

Crude, Where's My Bottom?

Once again, the small cap weakness coupled with persistent selling in the energy sector at-large seems to be slightly outweighing biotech and select tech strength today. As a result, I am not forcing in new longs for what is an increasingly divergent market. As an aside, it is interesting to see the solar outperformance, however, with RUN VSLR...

Tweets Versus Eats

The main issue with the early strength in Twitter's stock this morning is that it is so widely-watched and sees such knee-jerk cheerleading that it is usually best to see if the move can actually hold beyond a few hours. TWTR is still potentially in the later stages of a major bottom after enduring a severe downtrend for years after an initial,...

Not Enough Juice for the Euphoria Gambit

It appears as though some glaring weakness in tech and small caps today, alongside various other selling in the likes of CMG and DIS, is overpowering the rotation into biotech to spark some type of frenzy buying into July 4th.  Intel, for example, below on the daily chart, is breaching $35 prior support and is now at risk of severely weighing...

Less Flash, More Substance

On the back of yesterday's rally, of which we have seen similar types of sessions in recent weeks, we also have seen similar types of givebacks the following day. Indeed, some more substance to follow-up the rally and bullish setups would be favored for long-minded traders. Instead, despite some good action in biotech, again, the market is...

Take Your Biotech Marching Orders from This Stock

Barring some stock-specific news anytime soon, I suspect the issue of whether the biotechnology sector rally not only continues to hold but also broadens out can be seen in the likes of Amgen and a few other IBB plays.  Specifically, the AMGN monthly chart, below, indicates the stock has essentially been sideways for roughly two and a half...

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....
