Snap (SNAP)

Snap is moving up today following an upgrade from Morgan Stanley to Equal Weight from Underweight. The stock has been decimated since hitting resistance at $18.40. Support at $13.60 has held at this point, and resistance moves to $15.60.

Visa (V)

Visa is moving up this morning on headlines that US trade officials have lobbied Indonesia to loosen rules to help give Visa and Mastercard access to that market. The stock is trading above the upper end of its recent trading range, and I still think the stock could be heading higher to $182. Here is a premium article highlighting why I believe that is the case. Why Visa’s Stock May Rebound Sharply

V, Visa

Netflix (NFLX)

Netflix has been finding some interest among buyers around this $260 region, and it seems the stock may have at least found a floor for the time as we move into earnings. We’ll see what happens next. I don’t have any bold thoughts at this point.

Intel (INTC)

Intel looks like it is getting ready for its next leg higher towards $53.

Intel, intc

Anyway, that will be all, enjoy the action.
