Cisco's most recent trend suggests a bearish bias. One trading opportunity on Cisco is a Bear Call Spread using a strike $53.00 short call and a strike $58.00 long call offers a potential 36.99% return on risk over the next 3 calendar days. Maximum profit would be generated if the Bear Call Spread were to expire worthless, which would occur if the stock were below $53.00 by expiration. The full premium credit of $1.35 would be kept by the premium seller. The risk of $3.65 would be incurred if the stock rose above the $58.00 long call strike price.
The 5-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the short-term momentum for Cisco is bearish and the probability of a decline in share price is higher if the stock starts trending.
The 20-day moving average is moving down which suggests that the medium-term momentum for Cisco is bearish.
The RSI indicator is at 24.02 level which suggests that the stock is neither overbought nor oversold at this time.

3 Earnings Reports to Watch Next Week

Editor's note: InvestorPlace's Earnings Reports to Watch is updated weekly. Please check back next week for our latest earnings picks.Source: Shutterstock Earnings season might be nearing an end, but there are still a few enormous earnings reports on the calendar next week. They represent another test for a broad market still down 3%+ from recent highs. So far, earnings have been solid. Factset Research reported that of the 77% of S&P 500 companies reporting, an impressive 76% beat earnings estimates; 59% posted revenue ahead of expectations. Both figures are roughly in line with trends over the past few years — during which time U.S. equities have continued to gain. InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOf course, the weakness seen of late hasn't come from disappointing earnings. Rather, it has been external factors that have spooked investors. The Federal Reserve didn't cut rates as fast as hoped. The trade war has ramped up. Those external worries will hang over several key earnings reports next week. That creates a test for the market — and a way for investors to gauge where the market as a whole might be headed over the rest of the year. Tech giants Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) both report, yet might not be among the companies most likely to move markets next week. Instead, it's going to be the companies most exposed to trade issues, in particular, that likely will garner the headliness. A Chinese giant will give its take on trade, while its numbers might show the health of its country's economy. The largest retailer in the U.S. — with large exposure to now-increased tariffs — will show if the American consumer is willing to keep spending up. And yet another leader, in a still-nascent sector, will test investor appetite for risk. * 10 Internet Stocks Getting Hammered It might appear like earnings season is over, and in terms of the number of companies reported, that might be the case. But make no mistake: these three earnings reports could impact the entire market. Earnings Reports to Watch: Canopy Growth (CGC)Source: Shutterstock Earnings Report Date: Wednesday, August 14, after market close Marijuana stocks have fallen steadily in recent months. And the most valuable company in the space, Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC), has not been immune. CGC stock has fallen over 35% from late April highs. Earnings on Wednesday afternoon give Canopy Growth a chance to reverse its slide and potentially boost the sector as a whole. Most companies have disappointed lately, including Canopy itself, whose fiscal Q4 earnings in June were seen as underwhelming. But Aphria (NYSE:APHA) gave the sector a boost with a blowout quarter last week. Cronos Group (NASDAQ:CRON) posted a strong quarter on Thursday, though a post-earnings slide doesn't bode well for the expectations facing Canopy next week. All told, as I wrote on Wednesday, Canopy needs a huge earnings report. The selloff in CRON seems to confirm that sentiment. At this point, strong results would help not only CGC stock, but could change the narrative around the entire industry. Alibaba (BABA)Source: Shutterstock Earnings Report Date: Thursday, August 15, before market open It will be interesting to see how much fiscal first-quarter results from Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) even matter. As I've noted before, the battle lines on BABA stock are pretty well set. Bulls see an enormous opportunity to own the e-commerce leader in a fast-growing market. Bears see questionable governance, concerns in the ownership structure and a domestic economy set for a "hard landing" at some point. Q1 numbers likely won't be enough to move to either side of the debate. Indeed, even after a big headline beat with Q4 earnings in May, BABA stock continued to slide. But post-earnings commentary will be closely watched. Can Alibaba calm investor worries about the impact of the trade war on the Chinese economy? If it can, BABA stock can rally — and it can bring other Chinese issues along with it. Still, at this point, in a suddenly jittery market, that seems like a lot to ask. * 7 Renewable Energy Stocks to Buy for Sunny Long-Term Returns And a selloff that follows strong numbers might suggest that investors are heading to the sidelines when it comes to China. That would be a negative signal not only for the likes of JD.com (NASDAQ:JD) and Baidu (NASDAQ:BIDU), but China-heavy U.S. companies like Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) and Nike (NYSE:NKE). Walmart (WMT)Source: Shutterstock Earnings Report Date: Thursday, August 15, before market open Retail earnings season kicks off next week, with Walmart (NYSE:WMT) the report likely to get the most attention. The company's omnichannel transformation led WMT stock to all-time highs last month. But it has pulled back amid higher tariffs, which should impact pricing, and potentially margins, for the retailing giant. Department stores Macy's (NYSE:M) and JC Penney (NYSE:JCP) also report earnings next week — and there, too, commentary on tariffs will be closely watched. Strong numbers and an optimistic outlook could drive optimism toward the entire sector as more reports roll in over the following weeks. But downside guidance — particularly from Walmart — could mean there are signs of trouble in U.S. consumer spending. If that's the takeaway from early retail earnings, the ripple effects will extend well beyond the sector. As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
