July 10 – Stock mentions: SPY, TSLA, BA, ACAD, SNAP, GS
Michael Kramer and the clients of Mott Capital own TSLA and ACAD
S&P 500 (SPY)
Stocks had a modestly good July 10 with the S&P 500 briefly rising above 3,000 but gave back much of those gains by days end. It would seem that for now, the S&P 500 found a new level of resistance at 3,000.
Nothing changed in my viewpoint. Powell gave the market it what it wanted, signaling a rate cut in July. I think equity prices are heading higher.
Inflation Data Tomorrow
July 11 will be a big day with the CPI reading out in the morning. It should give us a reasonably good indication if the tariffs are having any effect on inflation.
The one index that I continue to watch rather closely is the HGX housing index. It has been flirting with a pretty big break out at resistance around 325. This one has been a pretty good indicator of future market action over the past year or so.
Tesla had a July 10 with TSLA rising to around $239. I sound like a broken record, I know, but I continue to believe the stock is likely heading to $250.
I wrote a reasonably bearish article on Boeing yesterday, thinking BA could fall to around $320. Nothing changed in my view today, but I also realized that one way or another Boeing’s day of reckoning is coming as it gets squeezed between an uptrend and resistance at $368. That declining RSI suggests that the stock is losing a lot of momentum.
I really would love to see Acadia finally make that considerable break higher. The stock continues the slow grind up. The RSI is favorable. We need the data for Schizophrenia to come out and hopefully, with positive results, and without a sideshow from the world of twitter, perhaps it finally happens.
SNAP is still grinding its way higher to my $16 target.
Goldman Sachs (GS)
Goldman continues to hold the uptrend, so there seems to be a good chance the stock reaches $216.
If you did not get to see my webinar today, you can watch the replay over here. I’m a pretty harsh critic of myself and thought I did an excellent job after watching it. I think if you enjoy reading my columns, you will enjoy watching the video. It pulls together months of commentary into 30 minutes.
