Payments Under the Christmas Tree

Payments growth leader Square has fallen off the radar from many traders for a good while now, and rightfully so. On the second weekly chart, below, Jack Dorsey's other firm, SQ, topped out back in very early-October 2018 and has since been a glaring laggard amid various cycles when software and growth stocks were hot as can be. Since...

It's Not OK to Overlook Snap, Boomer

Late-last year shares of SNAP slumped as low as a $4-handle, easily one of the more ferocious decline during the broad market fourth quarter correction of 2018, with bears declaring the name to be imminently dead and a social media/app fad which had since run its course.  Since then, however, the stock literally "snapped" back hard, rallying in...

Dating Games; Earnings Games

I spent the better part of the last few hours trying to get ahold of someone in the corporate department for one of my holdings to see whether or not they actually had earnings tomorrow morning. And with the way corporate phone lines are set up now, it seemed like a miracle that I was able to get another human being on the actual phone to get...

Coming Home for the Holidays

In the midst of what seems like too many market players and pundits alike focused on whether or not we see another pullback before a potential year-end move higher, my focus is more on the underlying health of various key sectors.  Recently, we have seen the likes of semiconductors flash spurts of brilliance, although they be able to reasonably...

Dicerna for the Discerning Trader

There is nothing inherently wrong with choosing to abstain from trading individual biotechnology issues. After all, we have seen plenty of examples of the years of biotechs looking sharp, acting well with promising drug(s) in the pipeline, only to gap down an obscene amount due to a disappointing drug trial and/or an unfavorable decision by the...

Remember American Express?

Still in the Dow. Still relevant. Still an iconic brand.  With the Dow Jones Industrial Average surging up and out of a multi-month/quarter consolidation, it is hard not to think that AXP will reemerge as more of a high profile stock, once again.  Inside Market Chess Subscription Services, we noted the name for Members this morning as breaking...

A Journey Full of Danger

You just knew there would be the inevitable adversity as energy stocks embark on their journey to cement a major bottom. Just this morning, for example, the sector is fighting to shrug off FANG or Diamondback Energy's roughly 13% post-earnings selloff.  The good news is that Whiting Petroleum (WLL) actually went green this morning off its own...

Time to Zig When They Should Zag

Stocks are mostly cooling off this morning after a nice run in recent sessions, something which is entirely understandable and to be expected especially with a variety of post-earnings selloffs from the likes of AMRN UBER SHAK.  Going forward, though, the larger test will be whether this digestion spawns a larger pullback and conjures up...

Long Live the Commodities Bear Market, Part Deux

More good news for the working thesis that the energy complex has put in a long-term bear market bottom: Natural gas is confirming an intermediate-term inverse head and shoulders bottoming formation, seen below on the UNG ETF daily chart, with a strong gap up above its 200-day simple moving average (yellow line) today.  True, natty is enjoying...
