7 trade idea triggers


Recommended Posts

Get this via email from another broker but thought it was a good copy/paste. Thought it was worth a share and could give a few trade ideas. Also should we get a 'quick trade ideas' section running again? Or maybe @JamesIG can sort a competition or something based on new trade ideas? ;)

  • Optimism is fading as the US’s power struggle with China and Iran continues. By Wednesday morning, markets across the globe were feeling deflated as investors signalled a lack of appetite for the current level of political risk. In the US, the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq closed on Tuesday down 0.6%, 1.1% and 1.8% respectively since the start of the week, while China’s Shanghai Composite had dropped 1.6% by its close on Wednesday. In Europe, the picture is slightly better, with the FTSE 100 remaining flat overall. Germany’s DAX is one of the few major markets to post a positive result: on Wednesday morning it spiked to €12,290.46, up 0.13% from the start of the week.
  • Disney shares to enter new magical era? Some analysts view the stock’s latest holding pattern as a signal to buy, anticipating a further breakout after the company’s shares reached a record-high of $143 last week. Meanwhile, the company’s streaming strategy is gaining steam as Hulu, which Disney owns 60% of, has racked up 3.8m US subscribers in the year to date – outpacing competitor Netflix. Can Disney shares retest last week's all-time high? 
  • Micron surprises investors with latest results. Shares rallied as much as 10% in after-hours trading after the chipmaker delivered adjusted EPS of $1.05 and revenues of $4.79bn last quarter – both exceeding consensus forecasts (although still representing a 39% year-on-year revenue drop). Overall, its shares are down 25.7% since its year-to-date high of $43.99 and 0.2% since the start of the year. Some analysts now view Micron as a buy opportunity – with BAML saying they see value in the company’s low valuation.
  • UK high streets still have their champions. While the high-profile turnaround struggles of Debenhams and New Look have been well-documented of late, stocks in sectors like sports retail and value apparel are bucking the trend with strong year-to-date growth. The 3 stocks bucking UK retail's spiralling decline.
  • Match Group enters buying territory. After a dip during the latter half of last week, the parent of dating app Tinder rebounded sharply, rising 7% to 71.48 through Monday. That puts the stock 5% below its flat-base buy point of $75.38, according to Investor’s Business Daily. Match’s stock has had a meteoric 58% rise year-to-date, powered by strong metrics around the Tinder app’s usage and plans to tap Asia’s legion of smartphone users.
  • FedEx reports estimates-beating results. On Tuesday, FedEx announced earnings of $5.01 per share based on revenues of $17.81bn, beating consensus EPS estimates by $0.20. The results do not seem to be enough to reverse the logistics company’s share price trajectory, though, which continued to fall in after-hours trading. On Monday, the Wall Street Journal reported that FedEx had been slashing prices to support its Express service – which also cut ties with Amazon earlier this month – sending the share value down 4.9% by Tuesday’s close.
  • Evercore switches tune on Spotify. Evercore ISI analysts downgraded the Swedish music streaming company from in-line to underperform, cutting its price target by $15 to $110, citing scepticism over the ability to meet Wall Street estimates. Spotify’s stock closed down 1% to $145.69 on Monday. Also on Monday Spotify was revealed to have been exaggerating the amount of “app tax” it pays on Apple’s App Store; Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek has complained that Apple requires Spotify to pay a 30% tax on purchases made through Apple’s payment system; Apple responded by saying Spotify has never paid more than 15%.

  • Nike’s earnings missed expectations for the first time since 2012. The sneaker giant’s earnings fell short of Wall Street estimates, coming in at $0.62 for the quarter and $2.49 for the year, compared to the $0.66 and $2.55 expected, respectively. Analysts remain bullish on the stock, though, with Morgan Stanley’s Lauren Cassel saying ‘NKE remains our top pick’. 
  • Uber hits an all-time high. On Friday, the ride-hailing platform’s shares closed at $46.38, up 7% from Thursday’s open. The rally, which marks the first time Uber’s share price has closed above its IPO price of $45, followed news that the company plans to expand its services into West Africa. It remains to be seen if Uber can continue this momentum; its Q1 results, released on 3 June, showed net losses had more than doubled from $478m in 2018 to $1.01bn.

    • hahaha, from 1 per 100,000 to 2 per 100,000 for the whole of England over the course of a week = ''RAPIDLY GROWING''  ffs. This is beyond insanity.  
    • Imagination and remembrance: what role should historical epidemiology play in a world bewitched by mathematical modelling of COVID-19 and other epidemics? | SpringerLink Jordan Schachtel  @JordanSchachtel  9h ''I opposed lockdowns instinctively (bc they are totalitarian insanity), & after reading pandemic materials from CDC, WHO, etc & finding no basis for lockdowns, it became obvious these orgs were engaging in political science. This paper reinforces position.'' "Every established respiratory pandemic of the last 130 years has caused seasonal waves of infection and has culminated in viral endemicity. Despite this robust observation, initial models of COVID-19 excluded this possibility".                                                            ------------------------------------------------------------------   Beijing's Useful Idiots | ZeroHedge ''Bear in mind that in the heat of this pandemic, papers printed in important journals were peer-reviewed within 10 weeks; one rattled through the process in just nine days for Nature. But, like Petrovsky, I have heard similar stories from many other frustrated experts who confronted the conventional wisdom that this lethal virus was a natural spillover event. Some could not even get letters published, let alone challenge those key papers promoting the Chinese perspective which have since turned out to be flawed or wrong.'' ''Only now is acceptance emerging that the science establishment colluded to dismiss the lab leak hypothesis as a conspiracy theory, assisted by prominent experts with clear conflicts of interest, patsy politicians and a pathetic media that mostly failed to do its job. And yet, at the heart of this scandal lie some of the world’s most influential science journals.''
    • Folk will continue to believe what they want to believe. A nice, friendly, wholesome narrative is preferable to one which questions whether the whole thing has been a major error of judgement. Emperor and new clothes scenario.  Yes my wife is not the only one having trouble with AZ, thousands of others are (check out twitter and FB (though FB groups regarding vaccine and side effects are being shut down regularly, as freedom of speech is great as long as it's not controversial or contradictory to the prevailing govt narrative). However, we are being labelled conspiracy theorists for questioning the validity of the presented evidence re AZ and even Covid. Which is news to us. We are just a normal family doing our best to get by. Noone wants to hear any "bad" news, even if it has merit. So by extension, being rational has translated into being irrational. Many folk are sleepwalking hoping this dream will end, not seeing the wood for the trees, instead of being awake (not woke, but awake) and affecting change through observation and exchange of information. But observation is a rare commodity and fear discourages free exchange of information. It's all "meh meh meh" .....and they want to give the vaccine to kids ...have they no shame?
