Turn That Frown and Chart Upside Down

The Dow and Nasdaq seem to be growing incredibly concerned with the latest failed bounce in the small caps this week, as yesterday's strength is being overshadowed by this morning's gap down. As a result, I suspect recent hideouts for longs like Apple may now be more vulnerable than ever to finally pulling in for a bit of a reset.  While the...

Speeding Without Getting Into Trouble

The energy sector rotation continues to play out, with once-downtrodden natural gas suddenly looking unstoppable behind surges of buy volume to confirm the price breakout.  Quite a few energy stocks are becoming short-term extended, which is not necessarily a sell signal or even a reason for caution if this is truly just the beginning of a new...

Wynn and Sands Have Terrible Charts; But They Were Suited

Recent blog posts regarding the gaming sector have mostly focused on the outperformance of ERI, Eldorado Resorts Inc., a mid-cap gaming play with tons of growth in the more intriguing parts of the country like the Reno, Nevada area and the Texas/Louisiana border. Penn National Gaming, Inc. (PENN) is also worth a mention.  But, mostly, the rest...

Tough Luck, Lonnihan

Seeing the Dow up triple digits again as I write this reminds me of some of the "setup" con jobs in the The Sting (1973), where nothing was as it seemed to the sucker or mark in the con. Specifically, small and micro cap issues continue to struggle mightily, with the IWM off by more than 1% and completely ignoring oversold conditions. ...

That'll Slow You Down

While certainly not representative of the entire market, the persistent weakness in the small and micro cap stocks this morning in the face of oversold conditions (not to mention a sizable selloff yesterday) is enough to force me to reduce my long exposure, taking down wins where I have them and cutting losses while they are still contained. ...

Rays of Hope for a Turnaround

It has been a while since we updated retail sportswear play, Under Armour. On the daily timeframe, below, one aspect of the chart which stands out of late is the strong pattern of buy volume, denoted on the bottom pane. With consistent spurts of upticks in big buy volume bars, the stock seems rather comfortable holding over $20, which seemed to...

Reminder: Your Quirky, Charismatic CEO is a Double-Edged Sword

News of CEO Elon Musk being charged with fraud by the SEC is sending shares of Tesla down hard this morning, off by 11% as I write this.  While it remains to be seen just how harshly Musk is actually punished, we traders ought to be far more concerned about the notion of getting involved with TSLA in any way, shape, or form as long as the...

We've Got Spirit; Yes We Do

Improper Topping Action...or Basic Heartburn

While I am not going to say that the post-FOMC reaction, thus far, has been wildly bearish, the initial move higher does smack of a bit of an offsides move by bulls.  Moreover, the small caps in the Russell 2000 Index continue to struggle as I write this. And I am going to want to see a strong final hour from them in order to become aggressive...

Cleaning Up a Fine Mess

Of all the promising junior marquee growth names in the market over the last several years, GoPro and Yelp would have to rank right up there as being as disappointing as any of them. Along the way lower or sideways has been a series of ephemeral pops, quickly relinquished and oftentimes leading to fresh legs down.  Indeed, GPRO and YELP have...

Early Holiday Research

Seeing as Thanksgiving is more than eight week away, it may be a tad premature to start thinking about the holidays and some of the stocks which could sneak in as market winners.  However, we would be remiss not to point out the progress that long-time laggard Imax has been making, as seen on its updated daily timeframe, below.
