There were two stocks mentioned in Barron’s over the weekend… and typically when this happens, these stocks do well — and more in Monday’s stock market recap.
The first stock is an auto parts retailer, and the second is a global mass media and entertainment conglomerate. These stocks look great and I’ll let you know when I would enter each of these trades.
In today’s stock market recap, global futures are down slightly with guarded optimism for the Covid-19 global economic recovery.
The biggest contrast exists between the U.S. and Japanese inoculation rates. Fifty percent of Americans have received a vaccine compared to only 1% of the Japanese population.
Retail sales were fueled by the last round of stimulus from the U.S. government. Investors are considering the effects of proposals for infrastructure and tax rates that are currently in Washington.
We have a big week ahead as many big names report earnings.
Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO), International Business Machines Corp. (NYSE: IBM), United Airlines Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: UAL) report today.
Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), The Procter & Gamble Company (NYSE: PG), Philip Morris International Inc. (NYSE: PM), Abbott Laboratories (NYSE: ABT) and Netflix Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) report Tuesday.
On Wednesday, we’ve got Anthem Inc. (NYSE: ANTM), Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ), Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (NYSE: CMG) and Lam Research Corp. (Nasdaq: LRCX).
AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T), Dow Inc. (NYSE: DOW), Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC), Seagate Technology plc (Nasdaq: STX) and Mattel Inc. (Nasdaq: MAT) report on Thursday.
On Friday, we’ll get earnings reports from American Express Co. (NYSE: AXP) and Honeywell International Inc. (NYSE: HON).
Keep an eye on these earnings reports as they are likely to be the stock market’s driver over the next five trading days.
The first stock getting a lot of attention this past weekend was O’Reilly Automotive Inc. (Nasdaq: ORLY). ORLY has been around since 1957, and in 2019 it had around 5,400 stores in 47 states. There were around 276 million vehicles registered that same year. The U.S. automotive repair and maintenance industry has an annual revenue in the ballpark of $115 billion. I would wait for ORLY, trading around $535 this morning, to pull back to about the $485 level.
In today’s video, I’ll go over the biggest earnings reports this week… the Fed data we need to pay close attention to… the top stocks highlighted in Barron’s over the weekend, including the second name I haven’t mentioned yet… and probable trading action for the bond market in the near term.
P.S. It’s hard to stomach when you look back and see opportunity, after opportunity missed on explosive biotech stocks… But what if I told you there’s a calendar that identifies all the special “breakout dates” happening in the future?
Many people don’t know this but after a little-known government law passed by the 105th Congress of the United States, biotech companies have been posting “breakout dates” for anyone to see.
It’s as easy as marking a date on a calendar… placing a trade before the breakout day… and letting the countdown begin.
Future of Wealth Head Trader Lance Ippolito’s system has given regular traders a way of spotting weekly gains as high as 210% thanks to this secret biotech calendar.
