The S&P 500 is filling its February gap, causing some to wonder what’s next: all-time highs or a potentially large pullback? With that in mind, let’s look at a few top stock trades in the meantime.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Uber (UBER)
Uber (NYSE:UBER) is set to report earnings on Thursday, after the market close.
The stock is poking its head out over $34 resistance as bulls look for a positive reaction to earnings. If shares pop on the report, look to see if Uber can rally to $38.
That’s resistance from June, and puts bulls back in the driver’s seat.
If the reaction is bearish, however, let’s see that $30 holds as support. Ideally, though, support will come into play even before that — given that all of Uber’s major moving averages sit between $31.40 and $32.80.
Below technically puts $28 in play, which was a breakout level from April.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Facebook (FB)
However, it endured three straight down days after that. On the four-hour chart, shares flagged beautifully down into the 10-day moving average. The ideal buy zone came near the lows on Wednesday, but there was opportunity on Thursday morning, too. I even put it on investors’ radar last night.
And, after ending the day up 6.5% to $265, shares blew through the all-time high. It cleared the 138.2% extension at $257.47, putting the 161.8% extension in play at $278.03.
Remember, different timeframes can help investors navigate the market — particularly if they’re trying to be nimble.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY)
Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY) is up on earnings, but it’s not going gangbusters. Shares ended the day up nearly 3%, and also cleared resistance near $61.
Look to see that shares can maintain above this mark now. If the stock can, it opens up the potential for upside toward $65, then $67.
If it can’t maintain above resistance, though, look to see that BMY stock holds up over $57.50. A close below puts it beneath the 20-day, 50-day and 200-day moving averages, as well as uptrend support.
Technically speaking, that could put the June in play near $53.50.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Micron (MU)
With earnings still a ways off, Micron (NASDAQ:MU) stock may be lacking some bullish catalysts.
That may not matter if it was rotating to the upside. But with its push lower on Thursday, it has short-term investors on guard.
The stock is breaking below its major moving averages and flirting with range support. If it loses this zone — call it $47.50 to $48 — then more downside could be in play.
What bulls really want to see is range support hold solid, then a rotation back up through its major moving averages and above $52 resistance. That will put the June and July highs in play and ultimately, put $60 back on the table.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 5: Twilio (TWLO)
We’re getting more follow-through selling in Twilio (NYSE:TWLO), despite a better-than-expected earnings result. And while seemingly painful for bulls, let’s keep in mind this stock quadrupled from the March low to the August high before the print.
I don’t want to be greedy, but I’d love to see a bit more selling pressure down into the $250 area. There TWLO finds the 20-day moving average and the July breakout zone.
If that area fails as support, look toward the low- to mid-$230s. There Twilio finds its 50-day moving average and the two-times range extension.
On the upside, look for an eventual rotation back up to toward the $290 high. Above the 261.8% extension at $283.74 puts the three-times range extension in play at $315.21.
