8:15 AM – MORNING MARKET & WATCH LISTS UPDATE

NOTE: Today’s watch list can be found here.

It was another down day yesterday as the Dow Jones and the S&P 500 dropped -0.7% while the Nasdaq shed -0.4%.

This morning, European markets opened lower, while Asian markets ended the session mixed. U.S. stock futures are flat.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.”
– H. G. Wells


On Wednesday, the U.S. Federal Reserve signaled growing confidence that inflation is picking up and the economy is getting stronger.

The Fed left interest rates unchanged. Investors will be looking for more clues on future rate hikes in about three weeks, when the Fed releases the minutes from the meeting. The central bank’s next meeting is on June 12th and 13th.

Blue Apron (APRN), CIGNA (CI), DowDuPont (DWDP), Ferrari (RACE), Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMHC), Kellogg (K), Marriot Vacations (VAC), New York Times (NYT), PG&E (PCG), Standard Motor (SMP), and World Wrestling (WWE) will release earnings before the open.

Activision Blizzard (ATVI), CBS (CBS), Con Edison (ED), Del Taco (TACO), El Pollo Loco (LOCO), Goldman Sachs BDC (GSBD), GoPro (GPRO), Haynes International (HAYN), Pandora Media (P), Post (POST), Shake Shack (SHAK), Weight Watchers (WTW), and Xerox (XRX) will follow after the close.

I ran my routine stock screens early this morning, yet did not add any new stocks to our watch list.

We still have a total of 15  stocks which we will be watching for a buyable breakout here.

One stock in particular is GIB, which actually broke out from our watch list yesterday. However, this was an earnings breakout and those of course carry more risk. Shares did close the session back below our TRIGGER PRICE. Any gains today above there with a +50% increase in volume would be buyable up to our MAX BUY PRICE.

No one has to wait for me to issue any type of alert. Any gains above the stock’s TRIGGER PRICE while the day’s volume is at least on pace to make the TRIGGER VOLUME would have this set up confirming a BUY signal up to the MAX BUY PRICE.

Current Portfolio Members can access all watch lists with updated trading criteria including – TRIGGER PRICE, TRIGGER VOLUME, and MAX BUY PRICE for every stock here.
