kaltbaum pre market

Forget CRUS and AMZN this morning. I am ok with AAPL and if HD confirms…above 53.28…not 63.28 like I wrote last night.
 
I do not want to get caught into another news-driven whipsaw so going to start slow. BUT…volume was compelling and the technical look of market charts is much better with Friday’s action.
 
I tore a muscle in my back so while my family is out and about the streets of Paris, I am in my hotel room with anti-inflammatories and pain killers…how thrilling!

kaltbaum email

Greeting from Paris.
 
A 4th day follow through day for the S&P induced by more funny money saving the day in Europe…for the 15th…or maybe the 17th time. I would rather the market do this on a “no news’ day but you take what you get.
 
I am not thrilled by all the bullish emails I have been getting but nevertheless…we never argue with markets.
 
Leaders and thoughts
 
AAPL- I think you probe AAPL again as it moved off the 50 day again…will then need to leap 590…using 50 day stop.
AMZN- I think you can probe very small here…using 50 day stop.
ALXN- Strong…nowhere to buy.
BIIB- Again strong…nowhere to buy.
CRUS- Good move off the pullback wedge…small probe here with stop under 27.90.
CERN- Holds 50 day but would like a pullback.
DLTR- Reverses off 50 day…no place to buy.
EQIX- held 50 day…contemplating on buying breakout…or wait for pulling in again.
EXPE- movesd up Friday off constructive pullback. No place to play.
EBAY- Holds 50 day…may need some time.
MNST- Sitting on 50 day.
PETM- Very strong…no place to enter.
PRGO- very extended here.
ROST- Sitting on 50 day but vulnerable.
SHW- continues to ride 50 day but no place to enter.
TRIP- Trouble breaking out…
TJX- Holds and sitting on 50 day.
ULTA- Holding 50 day.
V- Continues to base…good volume patterns.
WFM- still strong…nothing to do.
 
I am also watching ISRG,PCLN,LNKD as all have good patterns.
 
Also…HD looks buyable moving above 63.28.
 
Homebuilders continue to act great…new highs in LEN,MDC,MTH,PHM,SPF,RYL,TOL. Expect some plays in this group.
 
A list of defensive issues for your review: abt,bmy,cl,chd,cvs,df,dps,ecl,hnz,hrl,hsy,kmb,ko,lly,mo,mrk,mkc,
pep,pm,vz. These are food, drugs,beverages, household products,, telephone utilites. Also, reits and electric utilities also leading.
 
Lastly…and I cannot stress it enough. Keep plays small. We have seen failed breakouts, failed moves, failed follow though days…especially off of news-driven crap. I have no idea if this move works. I just know what it looks like right now. There is no way one has or should have a strong conviction here…but if things start to work and keep working, we will add.
