6 Top Stocks to Trade Tuesday, Including Canopy Growth

Here are the top trades we’re eyeing for when markets resume trading Tuesday

top stocks - 6 Top Stocks to Trade Tuesday, Including Canopy Growth

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped more than 1% while the Nasdaq Composite struggled to stay above breakeven on Friday, finishing 61 basis points higher, as markets head into a three-day weekend. (That’s right, don’t forget to keep your screens off on Monday, unless you just want to get in a little extra chart studying.) Speaking of which, here are the five top stocks to trades for when the markets reopen Tuesday:

Deere (DE)

Now pulling back, we have to see where support comes into play. Short of Friday marking the short-term low, a test of the 50-day seems likely.

If we get a broader market correction — and perhaps some trade-war worries — we could get DE stock down into this $145 to $148 area. That puts uptrend support, and the 200-day moving average, into play.

That would give investors a low-risk long opportunity should they find DE attractive.

Nvidia (NVDA)

With shares up just over 2% now, confidence isn’t all that high and the move isn’t all that impressive as NVDA fades off its highs. Bulls want to see to the stock stay over the 21-day moving average now. Below and the 50-day is on the table and possibly a test of uptrend support down below $140.

If the 21-day holds, a run up to $174 is possible. Above that and $200 becomes a possibility again.

Canopy Growth (CGC)

So long as that’s the case, CGC can technically move higher. If it closes above $50, it could trigger a move up to the prior highs near $60. Below the 21-day moving average, though, and Canopy Growth stock may need some time to reset.

Applied Materials (AMAT)

Despite a top and bottom line beat, AMAT stock pulled back after somewhat disappointing guidance. That said, shares are bouncing nicely off the 21-day moving average. Considering the run-up prior to earnings, this price action isn’t all that bad.

Aggressive bulls can buy now and use a close below the 21-day as their stop. Conservative bulls can buy on a potential breakout over the 200-day moving average.

Bears have a play too. If they didn’t like the quarter and don’t like the stock, they can consider shorting AMAT with a stop-loss on a close over the 200-day. More conservative bears can wait for a break of the 21-day.

If they get it, they can look to ride AMAT down to the 50-day moving average.

Newell (NWL) and XPO Logistics (XPO)

In all, the report sent shares reeling, down more than 20% Friday. As such, NWL stock remains a no-touch. Its plunge below $18 thrusts it into no man’s land and puts the $15 lows on the table.

This one remains a disaster, just like XPO Logistics (NYSE:XPO), below.

A top and bottom line earnings miss sent XPO spiraling lower Friday, falling more than 12%.

While XPO is rallying off the lows, it’s in no man’s land, too. Like Newell, its 52-week lows are on the table of possibilities, and it’s hard to have much trust in this name until it can get above its 21- and 50-day moving averages.
