Facebook Earnings Beat The Street; Investors Sell The News

Social media has come a long ways. Big players like Facebook (FB), Twitter (TWTR), and LinkedIn (LNKD) dominate the social connecting and networking scene. But if investors reaction to Twitter and Facebook earnings are a sign, perhaps the sector is set for some price consolidation. Tonight Facebook reported strong earnings, beating estimates on the top and bottom line. Mobile growth was a big factor and one would think investors would

Grains Rally Into Fed: Corn Prices At Technical Resistance

The Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meets today and tomorrow to discuss monetary policy and provide their views on future interest rates. And it seems the Grains sector is tuned in. Select grains such as Corn, Soybeans, and Wheat are rallying today, and have rallied nicely throughout October. But, the sector is at (or nearing) the resistance levels that I wrote about on October 7th. In my opinion, this is one of

Evaluating The Small Caps Rally: What’s Next?

For much of 2014 the Russell 2000 (RUT), which represents small caps stocks, has underperformed. This highlighted a move to safer risk assets, such as large cap stocks. But this underperformance may have reached an extreme when the market bottomed in mid-October. Since bottoming on October 15th, the small caps index has been on fire: it’s been up 6 out of the past 8 days, rallying 7.5% off its intraday

3 Reasons Ford’s Stock (F) Is Worth Watching Right Now

When stocks were peaking into mid September, Ford (F) was already turning lower. And as the equity markets corrected into October, Ford got hammered. Now stocks are bouncing and Ford is having trouble getting its footing. Could a stronger US Dollar be at the heart of Ford’s woes? Perhaps, but more importantly, the stock is nearing a technical crossroads. Below is a weekly chart dating back to 2009. As you can

Investors Panic As Volatility Spikes: What’s Next For Stocks?

It’s been over 2 years since investors experienced a day like Wednesday. The steady stream of measured selling finally gave way to a bit of fear and capitulation as investors were forced to make decisions in the face of market volatility that felt crashy. At one point, the S&P 500 was down over 3 percent. It was the perfect series of events for an uncertain market: A gap lower that looked

5 Stock Charts Calling The Shots: F, HD, KO, TWTR, GPRO

During bull or bear markets, it’s always important to be on the lookout for changes in market behavior. For instance, when market pullbacks are consistently bought at 2 to 4 percent declines, it becomes worrisome when we the markets dip deeper. Or when leaders and momentum stocks get sold and defensive stocks get a bid. These examples are apparent in the current stock market decline and are a representative mix of what

Fear Gauges Rise: Is Investor Capitulation On The Horizon?

Last week reminded investors just how quickly volatility can make a come back. And just how uncomfortable it can be. After a big down day Tuesday, the markets recovered with an even bigger up day on Wednesday. But this was nothing more than a bull trap, as the bears pounded the market lower Thursday and Friday. And, at the time of this writing, the S&P 500 futures are indicating more discomfort for

Will Icahn’s ‘Half Price’ Approach Boost Apple Stock?

Apple has been accumulating cash for several years now. And Carl Icahn has been accumulating Apple stock for several months. And Icahn wants Apple to dig deeper into their cash pile and buy back more stock. This isn’t news to Apple (AAPL) shareholders. If anything, antics like Icahn’s “Half Price” letter to Tim Cook have helped bolster Apple stock. Just look at Apple’s share price since he announced his position in

Corn vs US Dollar: Chart of the Day

Many are aware of the the recent US Dollar strength. As well, many are aware of the weakness in commodities. After all, strong moves in the US Dollar (up or down) tend to effect commodity prices. Take Corn prices for example. Let’s just say the recent run higher in the buck has hit Corn pretty hard. Or at least this chart says so: Couple the strong buck with a bumper

S&P 500 Technical Support Update: Levels And Breadth

The past two months have seen several developments take shape that remind me of the February sell-off. I’m not saying that this pullback will unfold the same way, but I do think that issues with small caps and emerging markets (a good risk gauge), coupled with poor market breadth have once again played a role in taking the S&P 500 (SPX) lower. How much lower? No one knows for sure, which is
