|New NASDAQ High Brings Improved
The NASDAQ (and the S&P 500) set new closing highs this week while the DJI declined 0.1% following disappointing results from 3M, Intel,, and Exxon Mobil. Strong earnings results from technology companies like Amazon (AMZN), Facebook (FB), and Microsoft (MSFT), helped move the NASDAQ to its new high.
While the US economy appears strong with 1st Q GDP giving a surprise advance of 3.2% when the expectation was just 1.9%, the overseas picture looks bleak with slowdowns in China, Germany, South Korea and Japan. Perhaps this explains why US stocks are rising but doing so on less than average volume for the last 4 weeks, as the NASDAQ chart shows. This weakness in volume may cause a test of support for the new levels.
We recorded 21 breakouts this week with Cup and Handle (CWH) and Volatility Squeeze (SQZ) stocks almost equally represented but with SQZ giving the better average return. Only 3 of the 21 stocks closed below their breakout price.
