Smelling Blood in the Water

Equities are extending higher this morning as we head into a delayed State of the Union speech tonight at 9pm EST. I expect President Trump to dedicate a portion of his speech to renewed emphases on strong national defense measures, or "peace through strength," as he often calls it. As a result, the ITA ETF (for the aerospace and defense...

Like a Natural Canopy

Pot stocks and software have been two of the main parts of the market attracting plenty of hot money in 2019, and this morning is no exception. In fact, with Ultimate Software (ULTI) spiking on news that the announced an agreement to be acquired by a private investor group, one can envision a scenario where M&A picks up this winter and spawns a...

Looking for Yext in Line

In terms of shaking off the post-Amazon earnings selloff, equities are doing an admirable job thus far this morning. Back in December, if we had AMZN down 4.5% or so one would think the QQQ would be off by around 2% or more. Instead, as I write this the QQQ is only down by about 0.2%. That can change quickly for better or worse, of course. ...

Tonight We Head to the Rainforest

Amazon earnings tonight after the bell represents another tech titan reporting in light of Apple, Facebook, and quite a few others this week.  On the AMZN monthly chart, below, the long-term bull case would be that the stock has simply pulled back to its rising 20-period monthly moving average (orange line), a reference point the stock had...

Hold Up Your Badge, So They'll Know You're a Software Play

While the reaction to Facebook earnings, with the stock presently up by more than 13%, is understandably garnering plenty of headlines in the financial news media and capturing the attention of many traders, I view the reaction by ServiceNow to earnings, with NOW up 17.5% as I write this, as perhaps more significant for the market.  NOW is one...

Back from the Dead with a More Dovish Fed

In light of the The Fed truly adopting a more Bernanke/Yellen-esque approach today, or at least appearing to for the meantime, it would not surprise me in the least to see the destitute homebuilders enjoy something of a renaissance. On the XHB sector ETF, below, note the base bottom potential over $36. Names like DHI PHM TOL, among others, are...

LaCroix's Owner May Have Its Hand Forced, Unironically

Despite a cult-like following from the Brooklyn hipster demographic and a general growing popularity in recent years, LaCroix beverages (owned by National Beverage Corporation, trading under ticker FIZZ) is suddenly being portrayed as "old hat" due to the surging phenomenon of CBD drinks.  Exhibit A: Consider this article  published last...

X Marks the Spot for XME Names

Despite VALE's dam collapse in Brazil, and the stock's subsequent punishing at the hands of the market, with at least 65 people killed at this point and several arrests already made, the larger picture beyond the awful new special to VALE is that many miners are acting better. We have covered the renewed strength in precious miners of late. But...

Frozen in Real Time

Ahead of the big events of the week, such as AAPL FB AMZN earnings the next three evenings, respectively, on top of the FOMC and GDP print tomorrow, equites are essentially sloshing around in a new short-term range we have been establishing over the last week and a half or so. Weakness in Square is being attributed to a negative analysis report...

Battling the Elements This Week

The polar vortex of extreme wintry temperatures across the country this week may as well be a metaphor for the elements bulls are facing, too. Alongside this morning's NVDA sell-off after cutting guidance, a CAT-led Dow swoon in the broad market, we also have a plethora of major earnings like AAPL AMZN coming up this week, not to mention a Fed...

In a Lonely Place

I have spent the better part of this week toiling away at refining the running list of names holding up and acting best in this mixed market, without putting fresh capital to work, just yet. As I noted earlier, despite the chips rallying hard today we have yet to see the rest of the tape become truly excited by the likes of INTC LRCX TXN XLNX. ...

Bittersweet Chips

Despite impressive action in the semiconductor space this morning off LRCX TXN and XLNX all rallying sharply after last evening's earnings reports, not to mention INTC this morning too, the rest of the tape seems a bit too sluggish, all things considering.  Specifically, one would think with a critical part of the tech sector like chips...

Big Blue Needs Better Help

Despite an overnight rally led by Dow futures largely on the back of IBM (or "Big Blue," as it is known) earnings, equities are experiencing a notable dip as I write this. In fact, the small caps in the IWM and the S&P 500 Index's ETF, SPY, flipping back to red.  Simply put, bulls will need to show they have sufficient conviction to step back...

I Mean Are These Algos Something, or Are These Algos Something

To follow-up on my morning blog post, today's steady selling is taking a good many bulls by surprise as we work through the final hour. My bias is to let some of the stronger charts of late, like VEEV, back-and-fill this week in lieu of my focus being to press for an imminent broad market rollover. However, I am open to the scenario of a...
