Amazon’s most recent trend suggests a bullish bias. One trading opportunity on Amazon is a Bull Put Spread using a strike $990.00 short put and a strike $985.00 long put offers a potential 23.46% return on risk over the next 8 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bull Put Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were above $990.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $0.95 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $4.05 would be incurred if the stock dropped below the $985.00 long put strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the short-term momentum for Amazon is bullish and the probability of a rise in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving up which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Amazon is bullish.
The RSI indicator is at 50.52 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

Whole Foods Market (WFM:Nasdaq) By Wells Fargo Securities ($41.85, July 11, 2017) We are lowering our rating on Whole Foods Market to Market Perform from Outperform, owing primarily to Amazon.com’s pending acquisition (at $42 a share) and very low probability for a competing bid. Last week’s preliminary proxy filing provided incremental details around Whole Foods’ (WFM) sale process (which described interest from two strategic buyers and four private-equity firms at sub-$42 levels), and combined with our takeaways following recent meetings with Kroger (KR) management, we don’t believe a competing bid is likely.
