Hot Cocoa Season or Something Like That

Equities are mostly well off session lows as I write this, though the Nasdaq is still down by more than 0.5% and a further late-day slide can certainly not be ruled out. As always, on days like today we will be focusing for Members on relative strength outperformers in case equites immediately turn back up and burn bears again. I remain...

The Race is On

After sleepwalking for many trading sessions now, bears are at least trying to make things interesting this morning into a broad market gap down. Indeed, if we are to see some type of market correction before 2017 concludes, then the clock is ticking for bears to make that happen before we dig into the slow, low volume holiday portion of...

Don't Feed HOG to the Hogs, Just Yet

The recreational vehicle segment within the discretionary/retail complex has generally been faring well of late, flying under the radar of many. We have profiled Camping Word (CWH) for RVs. But also note PII THOR WGO, even BC (boats) sporting firm charts.  One of the more obvious laggards has been the iconic brand,  Harley-Davidson Motor...

The Big Blue Sinkhole Shows Life

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is up by triple digits this morning, even as the Nasdaq Composite Index has intermittently been flashing red since the open. The Dow can thank, in large part, IBM ("Big Blue" as it known), for an earnings rally. Long-time readers will recall IBM is a name we had consistently been bearish on since around...

The Dow is the Head Coach

Another day where the Dow strength seems to be masking a bit of sluggish action underneath the hood of the car.  Clearly, bears need more violent downside moves. However, with an ugly GS post-earnings reversal, NFLX fading a bit, and small caps dipping, backing away from too much aggression on the long side makes sense, too, in front of IBM and...

A Sonic Boom for This Sector

On the back of an earnings rally from Sonic, restaurant stocks are mostly catching a decent bid amid an otherwise painfully slow trading session.  With plenty of earnings still ahead of the sector, it is tough to get too excited just yet about the breakouts in, say, Texas Roadhouse, below on the daily chart and with earnings on October 30th. ...

These Charts Need More Law & Order

Despite the Trump Administration's tough stance on crime and criminals, the prison stocks, CXW GEO, have been noticeably cooling off since the spring months.  Recall that the private prisons (also functioning as REITs) rallied sharply in the wake of Trump's surprise victory last November. But now comes the true test of mettle, as both daily...

In the Midwest, They Call it "Pop"

The three horse race (with New Age Beverages Corporation [NBEV] and its kombucha drinks as a dark horse) between FIZZ MNST SODA to get fully bought out has been rather interesting to watch. At the moment, SODA is sporting an intriguing chart on the long side, though MNST looks sound and FIZZ may be trying to stabilize after its recent...

The Rising Fall Sector Foliage

An opening bounce on the major averages is morphing into an early grind, as the pertinent issue for equities remains whether bulls can continue to sustain adequate sector rotations to stave off a much-anticipated pullback.  Earnings season in October would, logically, seem to be the time for an extended market to correct. However, this market...

Lithium May Go Out with Periodic Bang

To follow-up on a recent blog post, lithium (LIT ETF) has been on a tear this year and may be ripe to conclude 2017 with a bang rather than a whimper.  And SQM, one of the major lithium-related players, a Chilean ag, looks as enticing as any on the long side with earnings not until around Thanksgiving.  On the SQM daily chart, below, you can...

All at Once, Finally

On the back of AK Steel and United States Steel Corporation  (X) gapping higher, alongside CLF MT, this morning, we are seeing steel stocks housed in the SLX sector ETF move nearly in unison up for the first time in a good while.  Moreover, the XME, which is a general umbrella for most things related to materials and miners, is threatening to...

Competing Forces

Sluggish action from the major indices appears to stand in stark contrast to some exciting action in select names throughout the tape, such as PFPT or UCTT, among others. This may indeed be the top before the drop. But bears, as usual, must force the issue since the overarching trend is still higher in this uniquely resilient market.  On the...

Young Prospects Coming of Age

Using Facebook in 2013 as a blueprint of sorts, the likes of Snapchat and Twitter, among others, can only hope to emulate FB's subsequent share price action up until the present.  SNAP notably perked up yesterday, with the numerous short-sellers in its float suddenly not feeing quite so comfortable. And now we have TWTR, below on the daily...

Work-Life Balance for Millennials

Snapchat is justly receiving tons of attention and praise today, as the beaten-down stock is finally waking up a bit since its IPO and is back over the key $15 level (first daily chart, below, sporting the triangle breakout). Lest we forget about the work-life millennial balance, however, on the work end of the spectrum we also have Twilio,...
