After a volatile session on Tuesday, U.S. equities posted a robust rebound on Wednesday as hopes rise for a trade deal. Let’s look at a few top stock trades.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: iRobot (IRBT)
The $55 area was a significant mark in 2017 and 2018, but now, shares of IRBT are breaking below it. Above is a weekly chart, showing that IRBT has recovered from its earlier spill toward $50.
But it’s not out of the woods yet. A close below $55 this week would put the recent lows on watch, and below that, the selling could accelerate even more.
Best case for bulls? A sharp rebound by the end of the week. However, for it to garner any long-term momentum, IRBT needs to reclaim its 10-week moving average.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Amarin (AMRN)
Amarin (NASDAQ:AMRN) shares are teetering on $14, a vital level of support over the past few months.
The setup is simple from here. Below $14 and the $12.50 level is on the table. Above $14 and the 50-day moving average is on the table. Until AMRN reclaims the 50-day, bulls will have a hard time with this stock on the long side.
Why’s it a top stock trade? To highlight caution with the name.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Canopy Growth (CGC)
For being the leader of the cannabis movement, Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC) doesn’t look very healthy. At least not from a stock perspective.
At the moment, bulls need to see two things. First, CGC stock must stay above the current low at $20.52. Below that and sub-$20 prices are on the table. Second, they need Canopy to reclaim the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, as well as downtrend resistance (blue line).
If it can’t hurdle these resistance marks, they will continue to squeeze CGC lower and lower. Over $27 puts $29 on the table. Above that and we may see a gap-fill up toward $32.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: AMC Entertainment (AMC)
The $12 mark held as firm resistance for AMC Entertainment (NYSE:AMC) in August and September. With Wednesday’s decline amid a broad market rally, AMC is threatening to retest its July lows near $8.60.
If $8.60 holds as support, it could set up AMC as a range-bound trade between $8.50 and $12.
Content is king, huh? Apparently not for AMC. This name does not look pretty on the long side, although moving over $12 makes it much more attractive.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 5: American Airlines (AAL)
American Airlines (NYSE:AAL) hasn’t had an easy run over the past year. However, its stock is trying to turn things around.
Shares are over the significant level of $26, and this month’s low is slightly above last month’s low. That puts a higher low on the table for AAL, a bullish technical development.
Admittedly, the longer term trend is still bearish and AAL does not look all that healthy. But for those compelled on the long side, over $26 may be good for a decent bounce, at least into downtrend resistance and potentially the 50-week moving average. Below $26 and this month’s low is possible.
