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...

Ironically, Bears Have Nowhere to Go But Las Vegas

The irony is so thick that even the most stereotypical hipster in Williamsburg, hunched over an obnoxious-sounding typewriter in a crowded coffee shop with patrons patiently waiting for an open table, would be skeptical of the notion that the only place a bear can find a home in this stock market is in Vegas.  And, yet, after MGM's earnings...

Cisco on a Road Trip to Value City

In front of earnings tonight, Cisco is breaking out on all timeframes. The mature tech play is clearly in the value phase of its existence. Thus, for many market players, including myself, the juicier information on tonight's earnings call will be any specific stocks or sectors upper management mentions on the call--After all, CSCO is almost...

Teck's Cup and Too-Hot-to-Handle

Teck Resources, unquestionably one of the major materials mining leaders over the last year, is selling off aggressively into the afternoon after its latest earning report. Headed into the report, TECK had been sporting an attractive daily chart setup, with a "cup and handle" formation near recent highs and the presumption of another upside...

Cornerstone in the Corner Pocket

Given the success of some monstrous growth technology firms in the software and internet content arena, such as SHOP WIX, we want to see potential follow-on winners, too. Cornerstone OnDemand is one candidate, with earnings now out of the way. The firm has been rumored to be for sale. But even if no buyout occurs, the daily chart for CSOD,...

Angie's List for Valentine's Day?

ANGI has earnings tomorrow morning before the bell, which of course is a viable risk to any open positions in the name.  However, it is worth noting as an educational example that the daily chart is printing a reversal candle today after a prior, steep downtrend.  ANGI has been a perennial laggard since its 2013 peal. But it will be interesting...

A Depth Perception Test

One of these days we will not see dip-buyers step in with their usual confidence whenever the market sees a fairly obvious "sell the news" event. This morning, for example, Janet Yellen's hawkish testimony before Congress initially brought many stocks down, before bulls waltzed into the dance sticking out their chests and with smug grins on...
