A Test for Underwater Warriors

Seeing as markets are closed tomorrow in observance of Good Friday before we head into the holiday weekend, today is as good of a test as any with regard to whether buyers have the intestinal fortitude to step in for purchases of what is obviously now rather short-term oversold healthcare and biotechnology stocks.  After mildly green opens, the...

We Need Juice

On the one hand, seeing the senior indices levitate even after a steep rally since Christmas is surely wreaking havoc on the hearts and minds of dedicated bears, buying index puts into each thrust higher seen in the DIA QQQ SPY. And NFLX battled back after earnings to slightly green/flat, alongside resurgent moves in large cap chips INTC QCOM...

A Moment of Calm Before the Netflix Show Begins

XLV, sector ETF for healthcare stocks, was down more than 2% today. Biotechs in the IBB and XBI were red, too, though not pummeled quite as much. Dating back to late-last week, the weakness in these groups has been an issue we have examine for Members, largely keeping us out of those names for now.  However, keep in mind relative strength names...

Just Your Standard, Much-Needed Oil Deal

After lagging the rally in crude oil itself at various points in 2019, energy stocks seemed to be waiting on more bullish assurances before engaging in a broad-based move.  And we may have just that this morning, as the Chevron deal for Anadarko (APC) may be kicking off a new wave of M&A in the oil patch (with OXY in the mix as another bidder...

A Great Wall Leads to Choppy Waters

After yesterday's promising upside action in many biotechnology and healthcare issues, those sectors are noticeably lagging a flattish, mixed tape this morning. For a while now, traders have been frustrated by the choppy action we have seen across healthcare and tech in general, as many hot growth names have taken the last several weeks, if not...

A Narrow Opening

Despite Boeing leading the Dow lower early on, many growth software stocks in the IGV ETF are back to assuming leadership for the broad market. At issue now is which side will prevail, the small caps in the IWM also bouncing back nicely after yesterday afternoon's poor close for bulls. Other software standouts this morning are the likes of DOCU...

Remember the Alamos

Slight relative strength in tech and medical tech stocks this morning is helping to cushion the blow of a sharp move lower in the Dow. In fact, as I write this the IGV and HACK (enterprise software and cybersecurity sector ETFs, respectively) are either flat or green.  That said, I suspect a bunch of even the mightiest of software names may...

Surviving a Jurassic Park of Resistance

In a video for Members in recent weeks we covered a long-term look for the Philadelphia Semiconductor Index, the "SOX." As you know, the chips were at the epicenter of the Nasdaq dot-com bubble at the turn of the century. But on the return trip to those 2000 highs we expected at least some pause over a period of months, if not quarters, as...

Selling with an Eye Towards a Buy

I sold down the rest of a SNAP long first thing this morning inside Market Chess Subscription Services, mostly looking to take advantage of the stock receiving another upgrade in the face of a weak tape.  Still, part of me wanted to hold SNAP for an even bigger win, as it human nature. That said, the weekly chart, below, illustrates just how...

Solar Stocks: Oasis or Mirage?

As crude oil strengthens yet again today, coupled with buzz that domestic solars are beneficiaries (intended or not) from the Trump protectionist measures, one cannot help but return to the solar stocks, a group which has been off the beaten path for a good while now. Typically, as we harken back to the post-First Solar IPO days of late-2006...

Growth at Low Tide This Morning

On the back of some visible Nasdaq names like ROKU and TSLA trading lower due to their own company-specific issues, tech as a whole is taking it on the chin this morning, namely the software growth stocks.  It may very well prove to be merely a shakeout, but as we are seeing those shakeouts can be rather convincing. And, of course, there is...

Celebrate Them Staying Up There

Traders have a tendency to shun names which we feel we have "missed," be it a sizable earnings rally or a rally seemingly out of nowhere. However, to succumb to those short-term emotions if often a mistake in terms of unnecessarily missing out on future opportunities.  Specifically, these stocks are often tipping their hands that they now have...
