Full Steam Ahead

Zix Corporation ( ZIXI ) enjoyed a 30%-plus post-earnings gap higher on Friday, which was surprisingly lost in the shuffle amid a busy couple of weeks on top of the fireworks we have seen over the last eighteen hours or so. However, we ought not forget about little ZIXI, an emerging cybersecurity standout with about a $583 million market cap....

Time to Call it for the Summer, Right?

The temptation my very well be to cash in one's chips on the long side today and prepare for seemingly inevitable market volatility this summer, especially in light of the China/U.S. trade war tensions taking a very serious turn yesterday. Moreover, U.S./Iran tensions are not helping the cause either, in terms of adding yet another point of...

Attention to Detail

In lieu of harping on the "big things" this week, be it The Fed perhaps not being dovish enough, some mixed economic data, GOOGL pounded after earnings but AAPL faring quite well, all the while Warren Buffett takin a (root beer) floater via shares on AMZN, among a plethora of political headlines, we instead wanted to stay tangible, if you will....

Beyond Meat: Ingredients for a New Fad Stock?

Taken directly from the Beyond Meat website , the supposedly "healthy" alternative to real beef burger patties features an ingredient list, above, full of easily-rancid vegetable oils and various starches shown to spike blood sugar in most people.  Whether or not you believe this product is truly a healthier alternative to real beef is a...

Watered-Down Market

There is a colorable argument to be made that this market may very well be best served with a broad-scale, multi-day selloff which helps to reset many strong but extended charts in tech. Even the most steadfast bulls could appreciate such a scenario, which may come to fruition yet.  But on the back of some harsh earnings downside reversals...

Back to the Future Earnings

After trading higher last evening after earnings, spieling over into the pre-market trading this morning too, software growth play Twilio is suffering a classic "sell the good news" reaction during the cash session. As I write this, TWLO is off by more than 4.4% and sporting a rather ugly candlestick so far, as seen on the updated daily chart,...

Ready for Another Round?

Bulls are doing their best to shake off the ugly GOOGL selling today, although as I noted this morning when you put the Alphabet selloff into context of the overall chart it is tough to argue that the stock is crashing or dead in the water.  Still, a heavy sell program this morning definitely rattled bulls on an intraday basis, and as we head...

Battling the Elements

On this final day of April we are already getting a potential sneak preview of the "Sell in May and go away" Wall Street phenomenon. Indeed, you can be sure that if we close poorly today many market players and pundits will have that old axiom on the tips of their tongues when the calendar flips tomorrow.  However, as we see the Nasdaq sell off...

Homemade BlackBerry Wine

I am long BlackBerry for a swing trade with an $8.70 protective stop-loss. BB is a firm I have been tracking for a while now more than actually trading, as long-term turnarounds can be rather tedious and, ultimately, choppy to trade.  However, if and when the market deems the turnaround a success the stock can often rapidly morph into a...

A Far Cry from the Pony Express

One of the more fascinating ETFs to track in the coming quarters is the IPAY, focused on mobile payments plays. The ETF's prospectus notes that its mission statement, essentially, is to capitalizes on the shift from credit card and cash transactions to digital and electronic. There are several interesting ways to play this theme, with prominent...

Enjoy the Ride

The price swings we are seeing in the IWM, ETF for the small cap-dominated Russell 2000 Index, seem improbable compared to the silky-smooth daily charts for the QQQ and SPY. And, yet, the roller coaster is a reality of the current market for small caps, with day-to-day (and oftentimes intraday) indecision reigning supreme.  In times like these,...

Mmm. Mmm...Bad!

3M Company (MMM), a diversified holdings company and Dow Jones Industrial Average component, is weighing heavily on the Dow this morning after selling off more than 10%, post-earnings. As I write this, the Dow is trading lower by roughly 1%, while the small caps are quietly lower by more than 1.3%. However, tech is flashing signs of relative...

Git You Some of That, There, Eye-talian Food

With earnings well out of the way, Darden Restaurants remains one of the more intriguing restaurant plays seemingly flying under-the-radar compared the likes of MCD SHAK WEN WING YUM, among other stocks in the genera restaurant complex.  However, it is likely a mistake to overlook DRI, owner of full-service dining brands like: Olive Garden,...

From Prey to Predator

We have a mixed morning so far, with the indices lurching just above and just below the flat-line as I write this. However, it is worth noting that the Russell 2000 Index's small caps are outpacing just about all other indices. Recall that this strength comes on the back of yesterday's powerful rally, which was the first time a good while we...

Drafting Several Prospects

With the NFL draft coming up this Thursday evening in Nashville, I am reminded of the software and cybersecurity sectors insofar as there being many talented growth "prospects" in each sector.  Specifically, as we have been noticing with Members in recent videos, there are so many similar charts for names housed in the HACK and IGV ETFs that we...
