DJIM Shadowlist outperformance

Entering the trading day,  yesterdays ‘biggest takeaway’  reversed and allowed the market to have a decent day, although the highlight around here was the outperformance of DJIM’s closely followed stocks.   Our alert in the premarket noted the nice reversal of the FTSE with ECB stepping up the buying of their problem children debt (Portugal, Greece etc. )/ bond buying program.   Once this ‘comforting’  act was done,  you knew the Euro was not going to slide further today and the US markets would be able to stabilize as yesterday‘s missing buyers would appear.    Also, the Irish sobered up and compromised with a good/bad split of one their banks, which is better than a complete wind down.  It’s good to see action being taken on all these Euro fronts immediately, instead of allowing problems to drag and watch the markets get spooked.   

Speaking of problem children, we have one in the US markets that underperformed badly (Semi’s)  and will keep this ‘rest period’ below 1108 extended if such bad behaviour continues to be exhibited.  SLAB   is #2 warning now after INTC.  Considering how early this comes, you can expect more from this sector.

On the home front (DJIM’s), we had an array of stocks outperforming off the latest Shadowlist update this weekend…

NZ , up >14%, flying already, it got some rumor mill action (IBM).  Stock is now up a good 25% since alert buy.   Note,  ARST  rumors from last week were refuted today and so this one may be too in days ahead.    Still, NZ is an EPS stock foremost in DJIM books this Q.   GMCR , announced a raise in product pricing and exploded to an intraday new high above $40.     NFLX  mentioned here plenty of times just the past week or so, kept on ticking to an intraday high of nearly $148...PCLN  >5% off upgrade,  APKT , NTAP , LVS , HLF  were also outperforming the tape with NCH‘s intraday.   In the commodity section off DJIM’s shadowlist, machinery’s outperformed, BUCY/JOYG  >5% were the winners going into Obama’s afternoon promises.    This was a day you can just ignore the broad markets stocks and sectors up and downs and just trade away the DJIM composite.  

Note: add retail PVH  to Shadowlist in consumer sector.


..CSCO on deck

If you blinked, you missed it!.  That’s the 7% blink in of an eye in the SP over the first 7 trading in September that has left those on the sidelines scratching their heads and/or suffering from some performance anxiety.    What’s come to fruition is simple …Journal sept1st/AMC….“September will be no different in dependence on data…It only takes a few day’s of data to change the prevailing sentiment away from ‘double dip’ speak.  We still have what may be 'determinative' numbers this week to sway the conversation of 'double dip vs. soft patch'’ . .  Buffet said today, no double dip at all and slmost all his corporations are coming back!

Today was no different as our lead-off hitter for the week (China data) got things rolling with a single up the middle and Basel iii was well received for not being (oppressive)as expected here.  That’s 2 critical groups (materials/ financials to get any rally up and running with the euro .  Also, the missing link (semi’s) came from nowhere and continued their late push from Friday for the market to bust through the 200ma (1116 last week here for next step if 1108 was closed above).   So, we had all the necessary Bull leaders in tow today, including small cap space (R2K) as evident in DJIM’s composite stocks making NCH’s across the board…RVBD+8%, FFIV 5%, NTAP, GMCR, HLF, HMIN, JOYG, EXPD, CMI, SXCI, LVS, APKT , ROVI, NFLX with FTNT/NZ flirting with NCH’s off ARST /news.   That’s a high percentage of stocks breaking out/ flirting with breakout moves at NCH levels, if you consider some stocks are just for watching money flow/rotation as part of the trading day.

What now?.  Playing around ~1120+ is probably getting shorts all riled up, especially those (this includes Bulls), who may think the market is going to continue it’s range bound  trade(1040-1120/1130) to eternity!.  We’ve laid at the catalysts for the week, now with our lead-off hitters doing their job, it’s up to the meat of the order with CSCO’s analyst meet up today (8:30-9.45am) and BBY earnings to continue the move to August high/June highs/ semi's continuation or the shorts will have some juice.


Subdued is just fine..

It’s going to take more than some short term USD momentum and European peripheries fragility back on the table to swing this market downwards.  It might’ve been good for ~5-6 SPX points to the downside early, but it was hardly selling pressure before the dip buying began.   Even with continued strength in USD, the commodity linked groups performed well.   Also, the Super-Fins’ discussed late last week as a possible catalyst for higher prices into year end did nothing to dispel this idea.

Market moving catalysts will continue to be sparse this week with US earnings wound down (but, European EPS starting, which may provide more strength for markets),  little eco data, so pullbacks should remain shallow with buyers showing up on the weakness.   

In this subdued trading environment, you’re going to see different groups leading for the day and on any given day different  names off Shadowlisted plays hitting new intraday eg. SOHU MOTR ILMN HLF WYNN SPRD.
