This article looks at some of the big movers off the back of recent earnings announcements, as we try to find stocks that provide potential trading opportunities.

Typically, earnings announcements and trading statements will drive a shift or enhancement of market sentiment. While many see earnings as a significant risk when holding a stock, placing trades in the wake of such events allows for greater confidence that all market knowledge has been factored into current prices.

Bellway

Housebuilder, Bellway enjoyed a welcome 72% jump in pre-tax profits for the year to July.

However, rising fuel costs and a shortage in delivery drivers has provided fears over further upside for building materials. Those factors remain a key issue going forward, with price falling back down towards a confluence of trendline and 61.8% Fibonacci support.

While we could see further short-term downside, it makes sense to look at the wider uptrend and recognize that there is a good chance that this recent selloff represents a buying opportunity. That bullish trend holds unless price breaks back below the February low of £27.76.

Tesla

Tesla managed to beat market expectations across the board, with supply chain concerns doing little to dampen sales.

Chip shortages and higher costs across other materials were widely expected to hamper performance, but instead we saw a record $1.62 billion profits in the third quarter (Q3). This has helped drive the stock back up into the critical $900 record high established back in January.

A break up through this level looks likely to leverage the stock into a fresh bullish phase, with the company clearly managing to finally overcome market expectations after years of missed targets.

Barclays

Barclays has enjoyed a welcome boost from its investment banking division, with the Q3 profits of £1.45 billion coming in well above the £931 million expected.

This has taken the stock into a fresh four-year high, with price looking to have finally brought a long-term downtrend to an end this year. This week’s push higher builds on the exit from a seven-month period of consolidation, with price looking to build on the March breakout.

With that in mind, Barclays looks primed for a period of strength, as higher interest rates and a growing economy build a favourable outlook for the bank. A move back below £1.55 level negates that view.

    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™ 
    • I am a beginner, and I must say, there are a lot of rules to the trading game that one must abide by if they want to be successful.   Here, the writer mentions several basic rules for day vs swing trading.  However, I find that often times, the reasoning for these rules is not as  obvious for a beginner as it may be for an expert.   The 'why' factor if I may. For example, why must you have a large capital to trade with as a day trader? Because your positions must be large so that a small change in price will be augmented and turned into a large profit. Also, with such high risk, the margin will be specially high, given the trader is taking up large positions at a time.  Without a large amount of capital, positions may be forced to close due to funds being below margin requirements.  When this happens, you can expect to lose tons of cash, fast.  I learned the hard way. All the best, David Franco
