S&P 500 (SPX, SP500)
How ’bout that stocks can go up after all? I nearly forgot I was beginning to think they could only go down. Today was the best day we have seen since, well, November 8. Does it last? I think it does. I was very encouraged by today’s price action in the S&P 500. The index managed to test support from yesterday lows right away. It held, and we rebounded the balance of the day. We rose above a 5-day downtrend and surpassed technical resistance at 2,716. Even better the bears tested that support late in the day and it held. I think that sets the stage for a rise 2750.
NASDAQ (QQQ, NDX)
Additionally, the NASDAQ looks like it may be on its way higher towards 7,350.
Russell 2000 (RUT, IWO)
The Russell 2000, also broke its downtrend.
Nvidia just reported results. Wow! This one may be finished. Seriously. The company is guiding earnings at $1.32 to $1.49 for the fourth quarter versus estimates of $2.01? Wow. In the fourth quarter last year they reported $1.72. Revenue is guided to $2.7 billion at the mid-point versus estimates of $3.4 billion, are you kidding? Last year they did $2.9 billion. So are you seriously paying 22 times one year forward earnings for a chip company with not even slowing growth, not flat, but declining revenue and earnings y/y? No way. Look at Skyworks, Qorvo, Broadcom, Micron, and every other chip company trades low double digits.
The street was not prepared for this, I have written over and over again, that every other chip was getting estimates cut, but not Nvidia.
$169 was support, but the stock is trading $165 after hours. Next support comes at $158, then its around $140. Yikes! Can’t say I wasn’t surprised. Wrote about on November 13.
Amazon, I still have a great deal of concern for here. It can’t get over $1620. The upside may be limited to around $1680, while the downside is about $1450.
AMD is going to down right along with Nvidia. A drop below $20 on AMD gets it rolling towards $16.
Acadia went up too! How about that. Perhaps the recent decline was merely a retest of the breakout. The RSI is still firmly rising.
More Facebook fallout today. It seems like these Facebook stories get worse and worse all the time. $140 is a crucial level. A break below that means $133.
That enough for today!
