top stock trades - 4 Top Stock Trades for Wednesday: PTON, TDOC, PFE, FB

After a lower open, the markets found a way to rally for most of the day on Tuesday. With that in mind, let’s look at a few top stock trades going into Wednesday, as market participants gear up for the CPI report on Thursday.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Peloton (PTON)

Peloton (NASDAQ:PTON) stock exploded higher on Monday following a rumor on Friday evening that it could be bought out. Shares gained 21% on the day but tacked on another 25% today after the company ousted its CEO — perhaps lending some credibility to the company’s desire to be acquired.

However, the stock is running into the 50-day and daily VWAP measure here, causing some bulls to take profits.

If we can push above Tuesday’s high, it opens the door to the 50% retracement up near $42.25. Above that, and we could get to the 61.8% retracement of this current gap-down range, followed by $50.

Below the 50-day, however, and we may see a revisit of $30. Expect wild moves here and plenty of headline-driven volatility. If that’s not your thing (it’s not mine), feel free to pass.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Pfizer (PFE)

Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) has good and bad observations here, as shares fell about 3% following earnings.

The stock undercut the January low of $49.81, but not by much. From there, it gave us a bullish reversal with a great risk/reward. On the flip side, PFE stock hasn’t been able to get back up through $51.86.

If it can do that, it has quite a few obstacles on the upside in the form of its short-term moving averages.

On the downside, though, a break of the post-earnings low could eventually put a test of the 200-day moving average in play.

Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Teladoc Health (TDOC)

The chart for Teladoc (NYSE:TDOC) is not healthy at all. This stock has been trapped firmly in a painful downtrend, as sellers continue to lean into this name. Can you be surprised, though?

Notice how TDOC stock had a strong three-day rip, climbing more than 20% in that span. That’s classic bear-market action.

However, shares couldn’t get back through the declining 10-day and 21-day moving averages.

Now, it will try to avoid breaking below $67 support. If it does, it could open the door down to the all-time low near $55. On the upside, taking out this week’s high at $78 could open the door to this month’s current high just shy of $81.

Above that and the declining 50-day moving average is in play.

Top Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Meta (FB)

How much is enough when it comes to selling Meta (NASDAQ:FB)? The stock has been absolutely buried, falling more than 31% in just four days. From the highs, shares are down about 42%.

Earnings are the culprit for the recent spill, but keep in mind that the stock is now lower for the fourth-straight week. So it’s not as if this was a healthy chart before the print.

It’s knifing through the 200-week and 50-month moving averages, the monthly VWAP measure and the 261.8% downside extension from the most recent range.

That’s tough.

If we can regain $220, then $225 to $226 may be next. Above the 200-week moving average, and we could possibly see $240.

However, if shares remain locked in a downtrend, see how it reacts to the above support levels that should have buoyed the share price. On the downside, there is a gap-fill at $197.50 or so should Meta stock continue lower.
