MDM has switched to a BUY signal.
Tech leaders such as FB and GOOGL have been trending higher despite the majority of the market which has been dragging. AAPL and AMZN both broke out of bases on their weekly charts recently and look to move higher.GOOGL's earnings came in strong so it is looking to gap higher at the open. Its revenues came in at over $61 B vs. estimates of $56.23. Earnings came in at 27.26 vs estimates of 19.325.
Meanwhile, TSLA's earnings report was nicely ahead of expectations. Its car margin sits at 28% vs. most companies such as Comcast which sits at 12%. Revenue growth was 98%, EBITDA growth 106%. They're sold out of powerwalls until the end of next year due to pent up demand. The PEG ratio (price-to-earnings to growth) is 0.9633. No disruptive tech stocks have such a low PEG ratio. Its P/E is 100 based on today's earnings, not 1200 as mistakenly reported by some sources. It has been getting support at its 40-week MA.
For longer term holders using weekly charts and 10-week and 40-week moving averages, all of the above names can be held for the longer term but dont buy extended unless you're willing to deal with drawdowns that may exceed your risk tolerance levels.
While the major averages continue to push on a string, this is nothing new in this Era of QE. Things can push higher for longer than expected.
Suggested ETFs (Note: Many members buy the standard ETFs or their preferred ETFs. This list serves as a guide as to which ETFs we think may outperform, but the key point is to be on the right side of the market regardless of which ETF or ETFs one chooses.)"Stuff" stocks, ie, commodity-related plays should continue to do well, thus the S&P500 and its related ETFs should continue to show strength. That said, techcentric NASDAQ Composite and TECL often lead with outperformance on a percentage basis under more normal conditions.
SPY (S&P 500)
SSO (S&P 500)
UPRO (S&P 500)
TECL (Direxion Trust Technology)
