It was another sideways day for U.S. stocks, as bulls continue to look for reasons to push equities higher. That said, let’s look at a few top stock trades for Friday ahead of the long holiday weekend.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Nvidia (NVDA)
Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) is hitting new all-time highs (finally). Technically it did so on Wednesday too, but barely.
The stock made a powerful move in 2020, but topped out in the summer and has traded sideways for months now. Earlier this week, it gave bulls a monthly-up rotation over $560.
After a slight stall, shares finally powered up to and through $590. Now over $600, bulls are clearly in control.
What we want to see now is for the stock to maintain over the $590 area, which is the prior all-time high and former resistance. If it can do so, it keeps the 161.8% extension as a possible upside target, up near $660.
On a move lower, though, I want to see support from the 10-day moving average and if we get to $560 — the January high — let’s see that it acts as support.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Uber (UBER)
Uber (NYSE:UBER) hit new all-time highs on Thursday after better-than-expected earnings.
The move flung shares over the 161.8% extension, although the stock is fading pretty notably from the session highs. From here, let’s use some patience.
If Uber takes out its post-earnings high, perhaps a move to the two-times range extension is in play, up near $70.
However, on a dip below the 161.8% extension, the 10-week moving average is potential support — followed by the 21-week moving average.
Side note: look at the way shares broke out over the prior high at $47.04 (in the fourth quarter), then held it as support. That’s kind the action we like to see on the longer-term time frames.
Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Zynga (ZNGA)
Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) had a slow post-earnings reaction, but patient bulls were rewarded.
The stock opened near $11, but ultimately ran up over $12. In fact, shares ran right to the 161.8% extension, which certainly acted as a profit-taking level for short-term buyers.
In any regard, let’s see if the stock can extend over this mark, potentially putting the two-times range extension in play over $13.30.
On the downside, though, a check back to $11 wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world, nor would a test of the 10-day moving average. For now, bulls remain in control.
Top Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Disney (DIS)
That creates a tough setup for bulls. One the one hand, it’s up almost 20 points since that rotation. On the other hand, it’s consolidating nicely near $190.
Should we get a continuation to the upside, let’s see if Disney can get to $200 and the 161.8% extension.
On the downside, however, look for a gap-fill near $182 and for a test of the 10-day moving average. Below could very well put the 50-day moving average on the table, followed by the $165.50 level.
