4 Top Stock Trades for Monday: WORK, GLD, DE, DBX
Fri, 21 Feb 2020 21:17:24 +0000
Stocks are under pressure on Friday, falling as coronavirus worries continue to weigh on equities and drive up safe-haven plays. That said, here's a look at some top stock trades for next week. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Slack (WORK) Click to Enlarge Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comSlack (NYSE:WORK) is up more than 2% on the day, despite jumping more than 6% in pre-market trading on reports that Uber (NYSE:UBER) will move all of its employees onto the platform. WORK has had momentum after similar reports of IBM (NYSE:IBM) doing the same thing earlier this month.Slack's rally drew in sellers on Friday, but the stock is still looking better overall. Earlier this month, Slack broke out over the 100-day moving average, then held this mark as support on a pullback.InvestorPlace – Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsA few days later, it pushed above the $26 IPO price. Now, investors want to see it hold up above the $26 to $27 area. Above keeps Friday's high of day and $30-plus on the table. * 10 S&P 500 Stocks to Buy Increasing Their Dividends in 2020 Below this area and the 20-day moving average, though, and the 50-day and 100-day moving averages are on the table, with both near $23. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Gold ETF (GLD) Click to Enlarge Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comThe SPDR Gold Trust ETF (NYSEARCA:GLD) remains red hot, as investors continue the flight-to-safety trade even as equities have done well the last few months.With Friday's gap up, the GLD is hitting new 52-week highs, while sporting an overbought condition on the relative strength index (RSI). The move caps six straight sessions with a gain, as GLD broke out over $150 this week.Just because shares are overbought, doesn't mean the stock can't run higher possibly to $160. However, investors may prefer to wait for a dip. Preferably, a drop down to the $150 breakout mark will be met with support — a strong sign that bulls are still in control.It would also be attractive to see the 20-day moving average hold as support. Below both measures puts the 50-day moving average on the table. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Deere (DE) Click to Enlarge Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comShares of Deere (NYSE:DE) are hitting new annual highs on Friday, after surprisingly better-than-expected quarterly results. The stock is pushing through recent resistance near $177, but struggling to hold its gains above this mark.Above resistance puts a move up to $185-plus on the table. However, failure to close over resistance keeps downside levels in the realm of possibilities too.That would first put the 10-week moving average on the table near $172, followed by a slightly deeper dip down to the $161 to $163 area. There, Deere will find the 50-week moving average and uptrend support (blue line).After such a favorable reaction to earnings, I wouldn't normally look for such a pullback. But when considering current resistance along with the possibility of a larger market correction, these downside marks become possible. * 3 Wild Stocks To Wrangle In This Bullish Market Overall, just stay open-minded and flexible. Let price be the guide, not opinion. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Dropbox (DBX) Click to Enlarge Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comBucking the trend on Friday is Dropbox (NASDAQ:DBX), which is up 23% at one point after reporting earnings.The charts for this one are really interesting. With the move, shares are ripping through the 20-week moving average — which roughly translates to the 100-day moving average. This measure has been resistance for several months now, stymieing each rally in DBX stock.Furthermore, the stock burst through the 50-week moving average and long-term downtrend resistance (blue line). One measure many investors are surely not considering is the newly established 100-week moving average, which just came into play at $23.76. Guess what Friday's high is so far? DBX came within 4 cents of that mark.On the upside, the 100-week moving average is now the mark to clear for more upside. If it can, $26 is on the table. On the downside, though, see that $20 to $21 holds as support. $21 is the IPO price for Dropbox, while this area also marks the 50-week moving average and backside of prior downtrend resistance.The chart for DBX is my favorite from this week, purely from a technical perspective. However, that doesn't mean it's the best buy or anything like that. Just pure technicals that make it a fun one to study.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
