Stocks Are Getting Ready For A Big Breakout, Plus A Look At Apple
Michael Kramer and the Clients of Mott Capital own shares of AAPL, NFLX
Another positive day on Wall Street with the S&P 500 climbing by nearly 1.3 percent closing at 2,663. I still happen to think the setup in the S&P 500 is positive, and rise to 2,800 is at work. I spoke about it the other day, and I continue to think that is very much case. The more I look through companies earnings and trends; the more positives keep emerging, over the negatives.
When looking at sectors the same positives trends keep showing up for the most part. In fact, it would appear the technology sector broke out today, and that is a very positive sign. In fact, a rise back towards $69 is maybe on the way. The relative strength index broke out today as well.
Biotech stocks have been stubborn and have been able to hold support at $100 nice. I think it sets the group for a rise of about 10 percent back to $110.
We can see a similar pattern forming in the consumer discretionary stocks as well.
The same with the chip sector.
Microsoft has a rising-triangle formation in, and that suggest may about to rise.
Netflix appears headed towards $340.
Not All Equal
But that doesn’t mean all stock is about to rise because Facebook, Amazon, and Broadcom have struggled to move higher, and I think it may continue to stay that way. Well, see though. I just find it interesting that Amazon and Facebook reported monster results, and the market hasn’t rewarded them in a big way.
I teased this idea on the blog the other night about Apple and a Netflix like valuation. No, I do think Apple will trade at a 60 earnings multiple, but I think in time as investor begin to realize services are becoming a more significant part of the revenue, the market will give the company a higher earnings multiple, as the stock moves away from being primarily an iPhone business.
More and more of our lives are moving to mobile devices, and I think Apple will now start to provide even more services on top of the hardware to make substantial growth the future. Well see, but I like the idea enough, that I bought it today.
That is it for a Friday.
