2018 ended with a bang between the good and bad sentiment trading on Wall Street. The final battle occurred around Christmas and finally investors were able to shake the malaise that had dominated trading for most of the year. All year long, the stock rally died a slow death by a thousand cuts. The stream of negative headlines was too much to overcome and investors were selling rallies. There were two dominant fears: The tariff war between the U.S. and China, and the fear of the Federal Reserve. But in December, U.S. Fed chairman Jerome Powell finally confirmed that they will not invert the yield curve on purpose. That alleviated half the fears on Wall Street. So the sell the rip mentality died and the buyers are back in control. This is not to say that is all green pastures from here. After all, we still have the tariff deal to work out. On that front, both sides are singing softer tunes. They sound intent on resolving the matter by the March deadline. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * The 10 Best Index Funds to Buy and Hold For now and going into the earnings season, stocks can trade mostly on merit. Today I share three blue-chip stocks that are likely to do well in 2019. My mid-term thesis is still bullish on these S&P 500 index stocks. There is too much good news now to let headline fears cripple stocks. In the long run, fundamentals will prevail over fear. ### Amazon (AMZN) Source: Shutterstock For decades Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) stock has been the mother of all momentum stocks. This is a company that emerged out of nothing and crippled several industries. This is most evident with what it did to the brick-and-mortar retail industry. These stocks there are still reeling and have not yet figured out how to solve that riddle. The bullish thesis on Amazon stock is very simple: If the stock market is higher, then Amazon is leading the charge. AMZN has created and now dominates the cloud. This is a great cash cow that will feed any new growth to come. And it is constantly seeking new income streams so it will indeed have more home runs to follow. My bet is that voice control technology will play a big role in AMZN's next chapter. Alexa licensing income will probably be a huge contributor to the company's bottom line. Furthermore, they have over a hundred million subscribers each paying $119 per year for prime. This is also a giant contribution to their bottom line much like similar memberships benefit Costco (NASDAQ:COST). What all of this means is that AMZN is a blue-chip stock to own for the long-term. Even Warren Buffet may buy some shares eventually. The tricky part is that momentum stocks like Amazon rarely give a clear points of entry, so choosing the perfect time to buy this king among S&P 500 stocks means that you will never own it. Amazon's earnings are just around the corner and those can temporarily be binary. So I would prefer to own half a position going in and add to it thereafter. ### Facebook (FB) Source: Shutterstock There have been few blue-chip stocks that fell more out of favor than Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) last year. Management had to justify its very existence in congressional hearings, after FB took the blame for a giant data breach in 2018. Facebook's management failed to mend the wound. The mistake management made was hiding the event when it happened and then not severely and publicly punishing those who actually did the wrongs. While the headline from that particular Cambridge Analytica incident is gone, the stigma lingers. So now all eyes are on FB, so it cannot afford to make another major mistake. Operationally Facebook is a marketing behemoth. Its reach stretches far beyond its own FB platform and advertisers are not likely to leave the company. In addition, FB also has several platforms that it has yet to monetize. I personally use WhatsApp and will probably pay for it it or would tolerate the ads if and when they come. Facebook has over a billion users engaged on its platforms every day for hours at a time. This is massive potential that is almost impossible to ruin. So this is merely an adjustment period. That is necessary and the company will come out of it better in the long run. The key perspective with FB stock is that it's a long-term investment and not just a trading vehicle. The stock has violently bounced off recent lows and it has been setting higher ones since the Christmas bottom. So going into the earnings FB stock has momentum on its side and the buyers are in control. I do worry about the expenses that management is incurring in order to appease public opinion. Management wants to make sure legislators see them fit to lead, so they don't come down hard on the industry with extreme litigious cuffs. * 10 Lithium Stocks to Buy Despite the Market's Irrationality This is one of the greatest names among other S&P 500 stocks and no one truely wants to cripple it. As such, we need to adjust our privacy expectations. There is no way to stop data breaches from happening, but companies have to put their best efforts forward on that front. I am realistic with my expectations on privacy, so I am aware that they already know too much about me, even though I never used the platform. But so does Alphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) Google and every other company I do business with electronically. Facebook is not evil, it just happens to be the most successful of all social media platforms. Once investors get over these moral difficulties, FB stock should get back on track. ### Nvidia (NVDA) Source: Shutterstock Our lives are completely dependent on technology now more than ever and this is a trend that is not going to reverse anytime soon. We have a few suppliers to power that tech. Semiconductor companies, especially chip providers, are at the heart of this trend. Unfortunately they are momentum stocks and that makes them hard to trade, so it is best to invest into a longer term thesis. On the way down, they seem like they're falling into an abyss and on the way up they seem perpetually ready to correct. And that's what happened to Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) stock. This was a company that everybody had to own when it was $290 a share. But when it fell to $120 last year, no one would touch it. The upside of a big NVDA stock fall is that the price-to-earnings ratio comes back to earth. At $156 per share, NVDA's P/E is now 20 and it is no longer bloated. NVDA has shed most of its froth, so in the long run Nvidia stock will recover a lot of the premium it had earned before the correction. This is a classic case of a stock loosing too much too soon. The company still has excellent chips in all the right areas, including gaming, artificial intelligence and autonomous driving. Since these trends are not going away anytime soon, neither is NVDA stock. Much like AMZN, if the markets in general are higher, then this will be one of the blue-chip stocks that will be higher. Add to that the fact that it is much less frothy than than its competitor Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD), and it's no wonder that this is a solid S&P 500 stock to buy.

Investing.com - Stocks started the holiday-shortened week lower Tuesday as concerns about global growth weighed on Wall Street.
The market continues to defy both the bulls and the bears. The former wants a pullback to buy, the latter feels we're overbought. Can investors keep up the positivity during a holiday-shortened trading week next week? Remember, no trades for Monday, which is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. With that out of the way, let's look at a few top stock trades for Tuesday. ### Netflix (NFLX) InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips If I told you ahead of the report that Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) stock was up more than 50% over the past three weeks, but missed on revenue and subscription estimates, what would your prediction be for the stock price? While it's closing near its lows on Friday, NFLX was threatening to go green at one point on Friday. Down just 4%, the damage is much more contained than many investors would have thought. That goes to show just how tough the prediction business is. In any regard, NFLX stock is on the cusp of filling that miniature gap from last week, near $335. That's also where the 200-day moving average is. If those levels act as support -- with a possible overshoot to $330 -- then NFLX may very well continue higher. * 10 Lithium Stocks to Buy Despite the Market's Irrationality Below $330 and $300 is definitely possible. ### Tesla (TSLA) It was made public that Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) is reducing its workforce by 7% and likely generated worse bottom-line results in the fourth quarter than in the third quarter. That sent the stock down about 12% on the day to around $304. Tesla is grasping to the $300 to $310 support levels and a slight overshoot could land it in the $290s, which acted as support in December and earlier this month. If I was short this name, I'd likely look to cover at least some of the position after Friday's decline. From the long side, it's hard to take a bite into Tesla without seeing a rebound first. Ideally, it'd be nice to see TSLA stay over $310. For bulls, be careful if this loses its December lows. ### Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) This one is plain and simple. Over $19 and bulls can stay long Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD). * 10 High-Growth Stocks for the Return of the Bull I'd love to leave it at that, but let's break it down a bit. AMD is breaking out over downtrend resistance (blue line), has all three major moving averages just below it as support and is clearly finding $19 as support. Below $19 and the setup fails. Conservative bulls can use the 50-day moving average as their stop-loss. However, AMD has room up to $22 and possibly higher depending on the overall market. ### AT&T (T) I am long AT&T (NYSE:T) purely for its juicy 6.6% dividend yield. However, it always helps when the stock is trading well too. We have T consolidating higher here and if it can push through $31, we could see $31.50 in a hurry. Remember, this stock was at $33 just a few months ago. If we can pick up a mid-single-digit return plus collect a big dividend, that's a win-win. Above $30 and the 50-day moving average, and T stock still looks good. ### S&P 500 ETF (SPY) Everyone keeps talking about how fast the markets have rallied off the bottom and indeed, it has been a rapid rise. At some point that has to end, but pinpointing it has been tough. For the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEARCA:SPY), the ETF made a mockery of Fibonacci traders. Stopping right at the 50% retracement on Thursday, the S&P 500 surged over 1% on Friday. Just a bit higher from here, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement rests at $269.45. If that weren't notable enough, we have the 100-day moving average now crossing below the 200-day near $271. Maybe the SPY can surge ahead and overshoot these levels, but I would expect that it will at least cause investors to pause and/or take some profits. I wouldn't be going heavily short right now, but I would be trimming some longs after this type of rally. According to the RSI (blue circle), we're not wildly overbought. In fact, we're not even technically overbought yet, with a reading of just 61.6 on chart. * 7 Dark Horse Stocks You Really Need to Look at for 2019 Should the SPY push through the 200-day, 100-day and 61.8% retracement, look for resistance between $278 and $280. That was a brick wall for the SPY in Q4. On the downside, look for support from the 50-day and $260 level. Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

Editor's note: InvestorPlace's Earnings Reports to Watch is updated weekly. Please check back next week for our latest earnings picks. Earnings season is here. And it certainly seems like a big one. The market has rallied in 2019, with the S&P 500 already up 5%+ so far this year. So far, the earnings calendar has been favorable: financials have been the year's top stocks after solid reports from the likes of Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) and Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) last week. Already, it's a notable change from the earnings calendar in late October and early November when even strong reports seemed to be greeted with almost indiscriminate selling. Investors simply seemed too focused on forward-looking worries about trade wars, interest rates and tariffs to be optimistic about backward-looking earnings reports. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Early indications suggest that has changed. That, in turn, sets up some optimism toward the next few weeks, when many of the market's top stocks -- and largest companies -- report. For all the noise in the market over the past few months, corporate earnings still look strong. That suggests that the earnings calendar this time around could drive a further rebound in the broad market. But for that to be the case, earnings have to cooperate. And earnings reports next week should show whether that will be the case. Several Dow Jones Industrial Average components report, but these three look like the most important. One of the market's most widely-owned stocks will try and bounce back from a big decline. A consumer giant will try and prove that there's value in a sector that has struggled of late. And a chip giant will try and keep the bounce in that sector going. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy for the Rise of Menswear It's a big week for the market -- one that could determine how U.S. stocks trade for the rest of 2019. ### Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) Source: Shutterstock Earnings Report Date: Tuesday, Jan. 22, before market open Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) has a key earnings report on Tuesday, but the numbers might not be the focus. JNJ stock still hasn't recovered from a 10% decline last month, when a Reuters report claimed the company covered up the asbestos in its baby powder. JNJ's market capitalization fell a stunning $40 billion in a single day -- and the stock still hasn't recovered. Even after the declines, JNJ still has the eighth-largest market capitalization among U.S. stocks. So the response to Tuesday's report - and management commentary about the company's legal exposure - will move the entire market, not just JNJ. The question is whether Johnson & Johnson, given multiple pending lawsuits, will even address the issue beyond a statement released at the time. Any response from the company likely will overshadow the numbers. But the lack of a response might do the same. ### Procter & Gamble (PG) Source: Mike Mozart via Flickr (Modified) Earnings Report Date: Wednesday, Jan. 23, before market open Consumer packaged goods stocks have struggled of late, as margin pressures at supermarket customers and growing private-label penetration have led revenue and earnings growth to slow. But Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) has been bucking the trend. PG stock bounced 35% from May lows to December highs, making it one of the top stocks in the consumer space. But PG stock has pulled back, setting up an important fiscal Q2 report on Wednesday. I've long been a skeptic toward P&G, and the recent run looks like too much. Growth remains modest at best, and the company's multiple cost-cutting efforts this decade have wrung out every dollar of expense. * 7 Companies Apple Should Consider Buying PG still looks dangerous at these levels -- and any weakness in Q2 earnings could send the stock tumbling. The gains from May lows have moved expectations higher. It remains to be seen whether P&G can meet those expectations. ### Intel (INTC) Source: Shutterstock Earnings Report Date: Thursday, Jan. 24, after market close Semiconductor stocks have benefited from the recent broad market rebound. The iShares PHLX Semiconductor ETF (NASDAQ:SOXX) has bounced about 12% off its December lows. So has chip giant Intel (NASDAQ:INTC). For those gains to continue -- for both the sector and INTC stock - Intel earnings on Thursday afternoon need to be solid. Expectations are reasonably high, with the Street looking for 11%+ revenue growth and a 13% increase in earnings per share. Given that Intel hasn't missed consensus since Q1 2017, history suggests Intel should be able to deliver at least that type of growth. If it does, that could be good news not only for INTC, but struggling chip plays like Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) and rival Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD). Investors clearly are worried about a cyclical downturn in the sector. Intel can assuage those fears -- and send the entire sector higher with a good report. I still think those rivals are the top stocks to play a rebound in semiconductor stocks. But a strong earnings report from Intel might change my mind - and drive the entire chip space higher. As of this writing, Vince Martin did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities. ### More From InvestorPlace * 2 Toxic Pot Stocks You Should Avoid * 7 Companies Apple Should Consider Buying * 7 Beaten-Up Housing Stocks Due for a Bounce Back * Take Buffett's Advice: 5 Vanguard Funds to Buy Compare Brokers The post 3 Earnings Reports to Watch Next Week appeared first on InvestorPlace.
A tepid start for stocks yesterday didn't last. Hope for an end to the trade stalemate with China led the S&P 500 to a close of 2,635.96, up 0.76% on a move that dragged most indices above key technical resistance. Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) led the charge again, gaining another 1.9% and setting a pace for most other banking and financial stocks. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) actually posted the bigger gain though, gaining 2.6%, yet also for no other reason than a potential end to the tariff-driven conflict. A handful of stocks were left out of the rally, however. Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS), for instance, fell 4.5% after posting surprisingly poor results for its recently-ended quarter. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips As has been noted already, the divergence among stocks is actually beneficial, as it makes clear that not every stock is subject to the greater market tide. Stock-specific setups are at least a bit more trustworthy. To that end, take a look at the stock charts of Nike (NYSE:NKE), General Electric (NYSE:GE) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN), all three of which are dropping hints of brewing, trade-worthy moves. ### General Electric (GE) Last week, General Electric was discussed as a budding rebound candidate that had bumped into a short-term ceiling. Though it was a hurdle that could have been challenging to clear, the undertow was encouraging. * 7 Stocks to Buy as the Dollar Weakens That resistance remained intact for the next several days. As of Thursday, though, the bears flinched and the bulls tipped the scales just enough to merit another look. Click to Enlarge • The ceiling in question is right around $9, plotted with a white dashed line. That line kept the buyers at bay for the better part of a week, but could no longer do so. Thursday's high and close were both above that mark. • The shape of the turnaround is also compelling. Smooth, u-shaped turnarounds tend to result in longer-lived rallies than sharp V-shaped ones do. • Although the buyers are back in charge, there aren't a whole lot of them. The buying volume needs to improve, though it likely will as (or if) GE works its way through the 100-day and 200-day moving average lines. It's going to be more of a process than an event though. ### Wynn Resorts (WYNN) With nothing more than a quick glance at the daily chart of Wynn Resorts it might look like the stock is merely chopping sideways after last year's meltdown. When taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture though -- and examining the weekly chart up close -- it becomes clear there's more underway than just some sideways consolidation. The bulls are testing the waters for a reversal, having broken through some well-established resistance lines. Click to Enlarge • The big resistance line that no longer matters is the one that tags all the major highs between June and October. Plotted with a yellow dashed line, that barrier was broken in late November. The bears took another shot in December, but couldn't keep it down. • The next major ceiling is the gray 100-day moving average line, currently at $115.43. The buyers have demonstrated a bit of hesitation at it nears, but if it's cleared, there's little left to hold WYNN down. • Beyond the 100-day moving average line, the next most plausible ceilings are the Fibonacci retracement lines at $132.80 and $160.40. The white 200-day moving average line around $145 is also a possible stopping point. ### Nike (NKE) A week ago, we pointed out how Nike shares had been habitually unable to hurdle a key moving average line. Though the third bump into this ceiling had not yet started another downtrend, until it was cleared, NKE was tough to justify buying. It has been cleared since then. In fact, another major technical ceiling was cleared as of Thursday. It's not a perfectly proven or clean break yet, but it's close enough to refresh our look. Click to Enlarge • The technical ceiling in question a week ago was the gray 100-day moving average lines. Failed tests of that level as a ceiling are highlighted in blue. Nike broke above it on Tuesday. • Perhaps just as important, Nike's surge on Thursday has carried the stock above the recent technical ceiling around $78.80, plotted with a yellow dashed line. • Though a solid thrust, the volume behind the effort has been thin. More buyers need to step up, but before they do they may want to see NKE slide back below $78.80, regroup, and march higher again.
