The Perfect Setup

Admittedly talking my own book (with a stop-loss below $25), I view Scientific Games Corporation (SGMS) as being in the sweetest of sweet spots on several levels from a bullish perspective.  The Las Vegas-based SGMS provides gambling products and services to lottery and gambling organizations across the globe. Even more intriguing is the sports...

Putting the Hype in Hyperbole

Despite some more impressive dealmaking in the biotechnology sector, this time with BOLD up more than 100% as I write this after Japanese drugmaker Astellas Pharma bought the company for around $3 billion, the broad market remains in pullback mode as trade war headlines reemerge.  Clearly, the lingering threat of new tariffs used as a...

It's OK to Be a Turncoat in the Market

Years ago after Tesla's jaw-dropping rally well into early-2014 I remember that I garnered quite a bit of internet support from noted TSLA and Elon Musk bears who would have loved nothing more than to see the stock, CEO, and company burn to the ground. At the time, I simply saw a chart so extended that the likely outcome was either sideways or...

Purple People Eaters Line Up for Black Friday

Purple Innovation Inc. (PRPL) is a small cap, low-priced, and fairly thinly-traded retail stock. But that's just it--Small caps and retail stocks are suddenly back en vogue as we head towards the quasi national holiday known as "Black Friday" for the post-food coma shopping bonanza. Purple is an interesting firm, claiming to have the "best...

A Thanksgiving Side Dish No More

(Most popular Thanksgiving side dishes by state, according to Google Trends) No longer an afterthought for this market, or worse yet an impediment for the bull case, the small cap issues housed in the Russell 2000 Index are making an emphatic move today to kick off the holiday week.  On the zoomed-out IWM (ETF for the Russell) daily chart,...

Bide Your Time, for the Bigger Game Awaits

Despite some more dealmaking this morning, namely SCHW buying out AMTD (which, by the way, the market is wholeheartedly celebrating since the acquiring firm, SCHW, is higher by 8% in addition to AMTD up around 20%), the broad market remains in near-term pullback mode after a multi-week advance on the major indices.  Naturally, bears will argue...

Organizing the Chaos

Despite a post-earnings rally from Target attempting to cancel out the Home Depot selloff yesterday in the larger cap retail space, the broad market generally came out of the gate sluggishly this morning. However, small caps and software displayed some notable early strength. And as I write this that continues to be the case alongside some good...

Stay Opportunistic, Yet Vigilant

Quite a few biotechnology and healthcare stocks have suddenly caught fire of late, with Karuna Therapeutics Inc. (KRTX) the face of the current rally, on an improbable and exhilarating run this week from $17 to $152.   The party may have more fun yet to come, though we know biotech always presents its own unique set of risks. On the one hand,...

Holidays Coming...Soon

Much like our analysis of Square (SQ) last week, Netflix (NFLX) may very well be in the same place as a former high-flying market leader which has become a fairly obvious laggard among large cap tech stocks for at least the last four months.  On the updated NFLX weekly chart, below, with the stock pushing back above $300 today there figures to...

Payments Under the Christmas Tree

Payments growth leader Square has fallen off the radar from many traders for a good while now, and rightfully so. On the second weekly chart, below, Jack Dorsey's other firm, SQ, topped out back in very early-October 2018 and has since been a glaring laggard amid various cycles when software and growth stocks were hot as can be. Since...

It's Not OK to Overlook Snap, Boomer

Late-last year shares of SNAP slumped as low as a $4-handle, easily one of the more ferocious decline during the broad market fourth quarter correction of 2018, with bears declaring the name to be imminently dead and a social media/app fad which had since run its course.  Since then, however, the stock literally "snapped" back hard, rallying in...

Dating Games; Earnings Games

I spent the better part of the last few hours trying to get ahold of someone in the corporate department for one of my holdings to see whether or not they actually had earnings tomorrow morning. And with the way corporate phone lines are set up now, it seemed like a miracle that I was able to get another human being on the actual phone to get...

Coming Home for the Holidays

In the midst of what seems like too many market players and pundits alike focused on whether or not we see another pullback before a potential year-end move higher, my focus is more on the underlying health of various key sectors.  Recently, we have seen the likes of semiconductors flash spurts of brilliance, although they be able to reasonably...

Dicerna for the Discerning Trader

There is nothing inherently wrong with choosing to abstain from trading individual biotechnology issues. After all, we have seen plenty of examples of the years of biotechs looking sharp, acting well with promising drug(s) in the pipeline, only to gap down an obscene amount due to a disappointing drug trial and/or an unfavorable decision by the...

Remember American Express?

Still in the Dow. Still relevant. Still an iconic brand.  With the Dow Jones Industrial Average surging up and out of a multi-month/quarter consolidation, it is hard not to think that AXP will reemerge as more of a high profile stock, once again.  Inside Market Chess Subscription Services, we noted the name for Members this morning as breaking...

A Journey Full of Danger

You just knew there would be the inevitable adversity as energy stocks embark on their journey to cement a major bottom. Just this morning, for example, the sector is fighting to shrug off FANG or Diamondback Energy's roughly 13% post-earnings selloff.  The good news is that Whiting Petroleum (WLL) actually went green this morning off its own...
