Trade of the Day: Boeing Co Stock Is Set to a Lower Altitude

Serge Berger

Shares of industrial stock Boeing Co (NYSE:BA) have fallen just shy of 10% over the past few trading days, at least in part due to trade war fears with China. On the charts, this now increasingly looks like the stock is capped for the time being, which in turn sets up a trade idea for active investors and traders alike.

One of the key differences that I like to highlight between my firm and many “stock picking services” is that we like to build “investment themes” that give us general guidelines for areas of the market to look for high probability trades. For instance, for the past two months we have been underweight and/or short industrial stocks as a sector/theme, and thus every time stocks within this space bounced to the upper end of their respective trading ranges, we looked for shorting opportunities.

This type of approach is what many of the pros use, i.e. outfits like hedge funds, because it allows them to stay focused and not take random trades that just pop up there and there.

Moving averages legend: red – 200 week, blue – 100 week, yellow – 50 week

Looking at the multiyear weekly chart, we see that BA stock in the October/November 2016 period began to break out of a lengthy sideways consolidation period. All the while, the red 200-week simple moving average held as key support. The stock then exploded higher to the tune of about 140% measured to the recent highs. While the bullish momentum remained intact all the way through, note how far the stock is now removed from said 200 week moving average.

Also note that the most recent rally in the stock that began in April has only produced a lower high in the relative strength index (RSI) at the bottom of the chart in blue.

Moving averages legend: red – 200 day, blue – 100 day, yellow – 50 day

Moving on to the daily chart, we see that the recent highs in BA stock in early June matched the previous highs from February. From a trading perspective and considering that on Tuesday the stock marginally closed below its 50- and 100-day simple moving averages this formation on the chart may be labeled as a near term double top.

While the stock could at this point be in immediate-term oversold territory, the price action here in my eye suggests that BA stock wants to visit lower levels still.

Thus, active investors and traders could either short the stock, buy at the money puts or put spreads with options expiring no earlier than August, or sell out of the money call spreads.

A next downside profit target is at $320 while any strong one-day bullish reversal is a stop loss signal from a swing trading perspective.

    European shares inch higher after Trump signals on trade

    European shares recovered some ground on Friday after a bruising session a day earlier, as U.S. President Donald Trump predicted a swift end to the ongoing trade war with China that has dominated trade on financial markets over the past year. The pan-European STOXX 600 was up 0.5% by 0707 GMT but remained on track to post a weekly loss and its first monthly decline since a sell-off at the end of last year that knocked 15% off the index. Addressing the latest flashpoint, Trump said late on Thursday that U.S. complaints against Huawei Technologies could be resolved within the U.S.-China trade deal framework, however no high-level talks between the two countries have been scheduled as yet.

    Crude Oil Price Update – Prices Plunge Amid Wave of Selling Under 200-Day Moving Average at $60.66

    The bottom fell out of the U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude oil market on Thursday on heavy hedge fund selling following a violation of the 200-Day Moving Average. Before making this move and triggering a wave of sell-stops, the market was already trading with a strong downside bias due to escalating tensions over U.S.-China trade relations and worries over slowing global economic growth. At 18:12 GMT, July WTI crude oil is trading $57.88, down $3.54 or -5.78%.

    In a new interview, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban sharply criticized the tariffs slapped on Chinese products by President Donald Trump, proposing instead that the U.S. stop allowing Chinese companies to go public or trade on U.S. stock exchanges. I'd shut down all Chinese IPOs—that's the first step,” says Cuban, a billionaire entrepreneur and host of the show “Shark Tank. Given [Trump's] propensity for using Twitter and throwing warning shots, I would throw out there that we might put a halt on the trading of Chinese-listed stocks in the United States.

    Luckin Coffee shares slide on investor fears over cash burn

    Shares in China's Luckin Coffee have fallen 7 per cent since their initial offering last week, as investors worried about the company's cash-burning expansion model and whether it can retain consumers without subsidies. The company gained a valuation of roughly $4bn less than two years after opening its first outlet in Beijing, on the grounds of rapid revenue growth driven by expansion in its store numbers to 2,370 in 28 cities in China. It is opening new outlets at a rate of 200-300 a month, putting it on track to overtake Starbucks, which has about 3,700 stores in the country after two decades of operation.

    Investors should treat court ruling against Qualcomm as merely a speed bump

    I believe the case will be overturned on appeal. One of the most glaring red flags in the judge's 233-page ruling is the conspicuous absence of any economic analysis whatsoever — which usually serves as a predicate basis for the proposed remedies in a ruling of this kind. I also find in the ruling no attempt to balance harm against benefits to consumers, whom Judge Koh claims — against all evidence presented at trial — were “hurt” by Qualcomm's business model.

    Trade Tensions Bring Micron (MU) Stock Down, But Cascend Remains Bullish

    While the company seems to be turning around, renewed US-China fears have caused shares to plummet 20% this month, as Micron is heavily tied and invested in China. More than half of Micron revenue comes from China — $17 billion out of a total $30 billion in 2018 — which is at risk as the US and China continue to slap tariffs on each other. Naturally, if a Chinese tariff were to directly impact Micron, revenue and sales would surely decrease.
