Amazon, AMD, Roku, and Facebook Are Facing Steeper Losses
MICHAEL KRAMER AND THE CLIENTS OF MOTT CAPITAL OWN SHARES OF DIS AND CELG
Lots of things happening today in stocks. Consumer names got hit rather hard with the discretionary ETF down by nearly 1.35%. A lot of that decline was Amazon. Yesterday I talked about the stock failing at two levels of resistance and that today would be an important day. Well, the shares fell hard today by about 1.5% to around a price of $1,970. At the moment the next level of support comes around $1900 then it is $1840.
The long-term worry is whether or not there is a making of double top pattern in the chart. It is way to early to say. But should the price fall below $1840 then that is very well might be that.

Look at Intel, it broke out today rising above $47.70, but then it failed at $49. By the way, the resistance line at $49 is new; I just put it there today. I had not considered it be a strong level of resistance, but it is stronger than I thought. Overall the stock has broken out of this falling wedge, and I think it still has much further to rise.
AMD got crushed today. Look I’m thrilled that I got the call right. I’m not happy that investors are losing money. But I think the stock has further to fall, to perhaps $25.70. This stock is overvalued, and I think the news from Intel over the past few days has reminded people that Intel isn’t going away.
Roku is another stock that got crushed today, and I think this one can drop to roughly $64.25.
Celgene had a nice move higher today, and the chart continues to look strong. As noted early it seems as if Celgene’s stock can work its way higher towards $96. Interestingly there were about 3,500 Oct 5 $90 calls trading today.
Disney is attempting to break out for a second time with shares rising to over $117.50. It feels like this stock is starting to turn the corner and I think we will see record highs soon.
So much for Facebook’s break out last week. This stock is once again on the brink of going to its 2018 lows around $148.75. There is nothing to like about this stock currently. Nothing.
That will be all for today!
