Positive Energy in a Sea of Negativity

The oil services stocks, using the OIH ETF as a proxy, has been a glaring laggard during oil's recent resurgence. Titans like HAL NOV SLB, among others, have mostly sat out the rally and watched as large cap integrated plays like COP and exploration firms like COG surged.  However, the longer the crude rally lasts the more likely it is that SLB...

Try to Embrace These Losers

Human nature and behavior economics dictate that, despite recent earnings success from both BlackBerry and Twitter, at the first sign of weakness longs will be rather quick to abandon ship. Recall that both BB (formerly BBRY, and before that RIMM) and TWTR have been mired in multi-year downtrends, devastating even the most optimistic, die-hard...

A Piece of the Pirog

As large cap tech giants in the U.S. zoom towards the $1 trillion market cap figure (see: Apple), there may be a bigger piece of the pirog, so to speak, for comparable firms overseas.  Just this morning for example, beyond AAPL, we have  MercadoLibre, Inc. a South Americans e-commerce company, gapping up after earnings more than 11% and...

It's Not Just Apple Being Served Up

Apple earnings after the bell tonight headline the action. But also keep in mind we have Apple suppliers CRUS QRVO as well, and then SWKS next week. So, it will be interesting to see the whole apparatus function for Apple, not unlike TSLA today with the lithium plays ALB FMC SQM.   Overall, bulls clawed back again today, keeping bears at bay...

See This Growth Through the HubSpot Telescope

With earnings out of the way, a small/mid-cap  cloud-based marketing and sales software firm like HubSpot, below on the daily chart, may very well be overlooked as market players linger on the likes of BABA FB TSLA, among others.  However, that would be a mistake, since HUBS has terrific earnings growth and a sound chart, to boot. Note price...

Tesla's Not-So-Electric Slide After Earnings

After earnings, Tesla is diving below its 200-day simple moving average (yellow line on TSLA's daily chart, below) for the first time since the very early days of January of this year. While the temptation may be to rush in a buy the "dip," in reality it is worth remembering we are talking about a very high beta, momentum-driven name which...

Nickel May Be Out of a Pickle

Just a quick note into the bell that the vastly under-watched nickel market, using JJN as a very rough proxy, below, is hitting multi-year highs today, as one of our Members astutely noted. Not only is JJN breaking its recent bullish cup-and-handle pattern higher, but it is also clearing well-defined resistance, as you can see on the JJN daily...

Turning Back Napoleon as Winter Approaches

The small caps in the Russell 2000 Index continues to show signs of a Napoleon Complex today, reversing down hard after a broad market gap up and, in effect, ruining what could have been a runaway move for bulls to the upside.  Breadth is deteriorating, and was one of the first observations we noted for Members this morning off the open.  At...

Gobbled Up Into the Gap Up

Despite a sizable gap up on several indices this morning, the small caps are flipping back to red as I write this. The Nasdaq is not faring much better, as it is flattish here.  However, despite the mixed bag below the surface we may simply be seeing some early shakeouts before what figured to be a very event-filled rest of this week, with AAPL...

The Glorious Railroad Will Be Built

While I could harp on the apparent death of the Under Armour brand today, of the coming AAPL FB TSLA earnings within forty-eight hours or so, I want to circle back to some value plays in the transportation sector we have looked at previously.  Despite some earnings volatility of late,  The Greenbrier Companies, Inc. (a designer, manufacturer...

Do You Have the Atmos Respect?

Although  Dolby Laboratories, Inc. suffered an earnings selloff last week, it is worth remembering that the seemingly mature tech brand's share price had covered quite a bit of ground to the upside since Labor Day, headed into that earnings report.  Thus, some giveback may actually not be the worst thing in the world anyway, in terms of the...

Using the Sword and the Shield

Despite the major indices flashing green as I write this, we have some ugly post-earnings reactions in the likes of AKS QCOM SHOP UAA, among others.  On the topic of AK Steel, we can also see U.S. Steel (X) get hit. But it is worth noting which steels stick out the proverbial shield to defy these selling attacks. And when we do, Schnitzer comes...

Miners: Have You a Valediction, Boyo?

Ahead of what figures to be plenty of year-end fireworks in The Fed, in terms of the direction of monetary policy for 2018, precious miners are pretty much at do-or-die levels.  For a while now, their various fits-and-starts has likely frustrated bulls and bears alike, with plenty of mixed signals along the way from which to choose. In other...

Draining and Straining This Market Into Halloween

The small market capitalization stocks housed in the Russell 2000 Index continue to lag the senior averages as we head into the heart of today's afternoon session.  On the IWM daily chart, below, which is the ETF for the Russell, we can continue to see those pinched Bollinger Bands we observed last week drive home the idea of a rather...

It's the Same Drill for Under Armour

In front of a Halloween earning date tomorrow, Under Armour is reversing higher this morning in the face of a Bank of America downgrade. Although it failed miserably, the same type of blueprint which applied to the likes of Chipotle (CMG) now applies to UAA, in terms of looking for a potential bottom.  Simply put, we want to see signs that...
