S&P 500 (SPY)
Markets are rising once again, with the S&P 500 trading higher by about 50 basis points to start. Futures are currently implying an opening of around 3,185 for S&P 500 cash. Markets continue to grind higher, pushing towards 3,200.

Acadia (ACAD)
Acadia is moving up today after getting initiated at Guggenheim with a Buy rating and $60 price. The company noted it sees peak sales for Nuplazid at $3 billion when combining Parkinson’s disease psychosis with dementia-related psychosis. It probably makes the stock worth more than $60, in my opinion. At four times sales, you get a $12 billion valuation versus its current market cap of $6.9 billion.

Micron (MU)

Micron is getting some positive commentary today ahead of earnings this week. Susquehanna gave the stock a significant price target increase to $85 from $45. Wow, that is a huge jump. $85 seems like a lot to me, but I guess we can find out. $54 is the next level of resistance.

Boeing (BA)

Boeing is falling this morning on news the company may halt production of the 737-MAX. This is one nasty looking chart, and I have been saying for what seems like forever in the mid-day commentary how I thought this stock was moving lower. $317 seems like the next level to watch for.

Tesla (TSLA)

So much for rising competition for Tesla. The new Porsche Taycan, ya know, the Tesla Killer, only has a range of 201 miles, wow. That is versus the Tesla Model S at 373. Tesla is moving up over $360 this morning, and the next stop maybe $378. Just think there haven’t even been “leaked” emails yet about the production of deliveries for the quarter.
