You Might Want to Start Believing in Fate

Fate Therapeutics Inc., a La Jolla-based cancer and immunotherapy small cap biotechnology stock, is a pretty textbook example of a "good house in a bad neighborhood" setup in the market. Specifically, biotechs as a group have been floundering, with the XBI (ETF for small cap bios) weakening further this morning below its 200-day moving...

Plenty of Flavors Besides Salty

It is easy to become salty about this market. After all, bears had a good setup to bring us down hard in recent weeks--A steep rally since Christmas which was met with swirling trade war headlines and lingering Fed uncertainty, not to mention mixed economic data.  However, those pesky software stocks have refused to let bulls lose their grip on...

Bring Me Everyone

Growth stocks are partying hard this morning, as some broad market pressures seem to be slightly alleviated and the relative strength issues mostly in software are celebrating jubilantly, including the likes of COUP MDB TWLO, just to name a few.  Biotechs are also perky on the back of some strong IOVA data and that stock jumping 34% as I write...

Who's Guarding the Market's Henhouse?

Despite pre-market weakness from equities on the back of soft retail sales, further advancing the notion that we remains in a headline-sensitive market (virtually all headline, beyond just the trade war with China), bears must come to terms with the persistent relative strength in technology stocks, namely the software issues.  As a result, the...

Solar Living on the Edge

Given the downright atrocious price action in the likes of the OIH, ETF for energy's oil services stocks, we can infer that the solar space continues to shine not as a bonafide alternative energy fuel source but on its own merits. Indeed, as OIH has been slipping for weeks in end with an already-putrid chart on virtually all timeframes, the...

Get Those Flags Right

Roku, below on its updated daily chart, has been one of the more notable outperforming charts during this market mess of late. As you can plainly see, ROKU knocked the cover off the ball with its recent earnings report and has subsequently barely flinched.  ROKU is currently sporting a variation of a high, tight bull flag look, which simply...

I'll Have My China Trade War Selloff with No MSG, Please

Shares of The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG) are notably green today. MSG, led by CEO James Dolan, is the owner of many entertainment assets including the NBA's New York Knicks.  With the NBA Draft Lottery scheduled for tomorrow evening, the lowly Knicks have a 14% chance of winning the first overall pick to draft prospective superstar...

War is War

As the U.S./China trade war intensifies, markets continue to wobble with the uncertainty of the entire situation. A major Dow component like Boeing, for example, seems to be especially sensitive to the China tensions and may very well become caught up in the economic bloodbath. Simply put, a war is a war, and the uncertainty of the situation...

The Zen Theory of the Stock Market

I once had a law school professor quickly regain control of a class which had gone off the rails. Too many students were questioning the vast inconsistencies in the case law we were studying, and the class had broken down into students basically bloviating for much of the class time about what they thought the proper law should be.  "You must...

A Market Challenging Your Toughness

I reluctantly moved to full cash in my trading account on Tuesday not because I expected this type of imminent downside, but rather out of respect for the lack of upside momentum seen in even the most of attractive of long setups in growth stocks.  While it is certainly true that imminent further downside was a distinct risk, as I noted for...

There's No Such Thing as a Perfect Game in Trading

The various head-fakes we have seen in this headline-driven market of late have slowed down even the most enticing of growth long setups out there, mostly clustered in the software-related complex.  Markets like these often reinforce the concept that as speculators we must understand that chasing a perfect record is often akin to chasing a...

Interesting Correlations

Despite quite a few software and healthcare growth standouts continuing to act well, be it the likes of SMAR TWLO or a big-time winner from earlier the year, Tandem Diabetes Care, below on its daily timeframe, you get the sense that broad market concerns are keeping a lid on things for now.  As a result, I have been relegated to a wait-and-see...

Hiding in a Rusted Place

After beating on both top and bottom line earnings this morning, it is worth noting that Kirkland Gold, flagging tightly below on its weekly timeframe, continues to stand out for its relative strength in an otherwise lethargic mining sector. At some point, if miners do sustain a rally beyond a day or two I expect KL to be a leader and surge to...

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....
