Facebook, ASML, and GM stocks are the stocks to watch
So why consider ASML, GM, Facebook, SMG, Ubiquiti, Disney, Target, Lowe’s, Mosaic, Deere and ArcelorMittal stocks on your watchlist? They hold up reasonably well, with strength or at least improving Relative strength lines. Many earnings shows rebound with strong growth prospects going forward.
Ubiquiti and SMG stocks form good-looking bases, which are particularly impressive given the volatile market conditions. A couple of these stocks are technically in the buying territories, including ArcelorMittal, Lowe, and Disney stocks. Others may be considered “viable” in a better market, such as Facebook stock, GM, or ASML. But it is not a good market. Recent breakthroughs continue to struggle or tumble as former growth leaders head towards their lows in March or later.
But all of these are worth seeing, and provide a window into a variety of positive sectors. It is not clear which stocks or sectors will lead the next strong rally in the stock market, so you want to cast a wide net. Definitely consider the many competitors and peers of the 11 stocks above, as well as from other sectors. Homebuilders, oil producers, and financial firms – including JPMorgan and BAC stocks – are also worth considering.
Market Rise Analysis
Stock market rally moved into “uptrend under pressure” on Wednesday and Thursday’s volatility did not change that. During the day, Dow Jones lowered it 21-day exponential moving average While the S&P 500 Index fell below its 50-day average, the Russell 2000 Index almost approached its lowest level in March. The positive is that they have bounced higher from sharp intraday losses, with the S&P 500 moving again above the 21-day line.
At least market conditions have not worsened. But they are not materially better.
The Nasdaq Composite has some work to do to break the 21-day streak. The tech heavyweight index won’t look really healthy until it returns above the 50-day line and a short-term high on March 16th. The Dow Jones and the S&P 500 need to maintain key levels.
Most importantly, the recent breakthroughs have not worked. Many stock charts look damaged and take weeks, or even months, to repair. Sure, it’s nice if MT stock is in the buying zone on Thursday, but a lot of stocks resisted selling until they didn’t.
If you have 2 demo positions or long term winners, that’s okay. But investors should be largely cash and should not consider new purchases.
Thursday’s lows could mark the beginning of a bold new bullish era. But this could be a short respite before the major indices drop below their recent lows. If the renewed stock market rally has legs, there will be plenty of opportunities for the bounce.
As IBD founder Bill O’Neill said, all stocks are bad unless they rise. There hasn’t been much of a good stock lately.
