    3 Big Stock Charts for Thursday: Viacom, Franklin Resources and Edison International

    Another day, another win for the market. The S&P 500 gained another 0.69% yesterday, stopping short of reclaiming the multi-week high it brushed early this month.General Electric (NYSE:GE) set the pace, gaining 2.7% in front of today's investor presentation and despite the fact that it's a supplier to the now-grounded Boeing 737 jets. Even so, Boeing (NYSE:BA) managed to make a small gain on Wednesday, following a couple days' worth of serious, related damage.At the other end of the spectrum, Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) tumbled 14.1% after Loop Capital downgraded the TV-tech company on concerns that it was overvalued relative to its potential.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHeaded into Thursday's action, the stock charts of Franklin Resources (NYSE:BEN), Edison International (NYSE:EIX) and Viacom (NASDAQ:VIAB) are worth a closer look. They've each worked their way into a technical situation that could fuel major movement in the very near future. Viacom (VIAB)The bulls have been doing their best to get Viacom shares back into a bullish groove since January, but it has just not happened. * 15 Stocks Sitting on Huge Piles of Cash As of Wednesday, however, the bears are actually gaining ground at the bulls' expense. A tough session has dragged VIAB to the brink of a pretty serious collapse, against a backdrop of multiple red flags. Click to Enlarge • Two big red flags are December's cross of the 50-day moving average line below the white 200-day line and this month's cross of the gray 100-day moving average below the 200-day average.• The line in the sand is $28.30, plotted with a yellow dashed line. That's where Viacom shares have found a floor since January, and they were testing that floor as of Wednesday.• Yesterday's volume surge is also a concern. A lot of sellers came out of the woodwork in a hurry on relatively tame news that AT&T was dropping some Viacom content from its DirecTV offering. Edison International (EIX)Sometimes it's not a chart's action that's telling, but how that stock reacts to a curveball.That's what makes Edison International so interesting headed into Thursday's trading action. Following word that the utility company is at least partially responsible for 2017 wildfires, a big holder sold a huge stake very late in the day on Wednesday. Before the closing bell rang, though, a huge buy-in recouped all of the intraday loss and then some. Click to Enlarge • That big stumble may have flushed out the weak hands, actually clearing the decks for a continued rally.• Monday's cross above the white 200-day moving average line is a buy signal in and of itself, but yesterday's intraday rebound confirms it.• The next big technical hurdle is around $70.80, plotted with a yellow dashed line, where shares peaked in October. Franklin Resources (BEN)It has been a choppy, inconsistent effort for the past several weeks, but there's a method to the madness. And, as of this week, the tide may have officially turned for the better. Although the stock may once again pull back from this week's strength, Franklin Resources is no longer bumping into resistance, and it's finding plenty of support for the first time in a long while.It took a couple of efforts, but thanks to this week's strength, BEN is back above the white 200-day moving average line. Click to Enlarge • This time, however, it crossed back above the long-term indicator by pushing up and off the purple 50-day and gray 100-day moving average line.• Although difficult to ferret out, both the accumulation-distribution line and the Chaikin line on the weekly chart confirm there's good bullish interest here. The volume has been especially bullish the past four trading days.• The clincher will be the 50-day moving average line's cross above the 200-day moving average, though there's still room for a pullback between now and then.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    3 Big Stock Charts for Thursday: Conagra Brands, Intel and Franklin Resources

    It was a gain, but not a convincing one. Yesterday's 0.3% advance from the S&P 500 may have gotten it above the pivotal 200-day moving average line, but a huge chunk of the intraday move was ultimately given back, and the volume behind the gain was mediocre at best.Still, baby steps in a bullish direction are still steps in the right direction.General Electric (NYSE:GE) did a great deal of the work, up 3.9% mostly in response to a $92 billion backlog for its power division. That's the arm that needs the most help and is best positioned for a turnaround.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAt the other end of the spectrum, Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE:TEVA) and Ambev SA (NYSE:ABEV) were a key part of the reason stocks struggled to make the collective gain they did. Ambev fell 2.4% mostly because traders remain unsure how they feel about the stagnant company, while Teva shares plunged 7.8% after the company conceded 2019 will be a "trough." Investors were hoping the pivot had already been made.None of those names are especially great trading prospects headed into Thursday's session, however. Rather, stock charts of Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), Franklin Resources (NYSE:BEN) and Conagra Brands (NYSE:CAG) are shaping up as the best bets. Here's why, and what needs to happen next. Franklin Resources (BEN)With nothing more than a quick glance at Franklin Resources, it just looks like a volatile mess. And, that may be all it is. A closer look at the daily chart, however, reveals there may be more underway here than it seems on the surface. * 9 U.S. Stocks That Are Coming to Life Again The stock is at a key tipping point after Wednesday's action, and the backdrop is surprisingly healthy. Click to Enlarge • As of Wednesday's close, Franklin Resources is once again testing the white 200-day moving average again as resistance. The past couple of those tests have ended with a retreat, but it's telling that the buyers keep coming back.• It's counterintuitive, but the volume surges that accompanied the last two major plunges are actually beneficial. They serve as a flushout, or capitulation, that cleared the decks for a new, net-bullish paradigm.• Although the late-January low was the first higher low since mid-2017, the past two bullish efforts have been on tepid volume. More buyers will need to crawl out of the woodwork for a rally effort to be sustained. Conagra Brands (CAG)A little over a week ago, Conagra Brands was featured as a budding breakout candidate. In fact, it had just edged above a technical ceiling. The effort just needed to solidify a little bit more, to confirm it was for real.It's for real. CAG is now up 6.5% since that look, and has put that resistance line in the rearview mirror. There's another ceiling dead ahead, however, that needs to be cleared before the next bullish leg can take shape. Conagra may need to peel back before forging any higher though. Click to Enlarge • The next hurdle is the 50-day moving average line, plotted in purple on the daily stock chart. The buyers stepped back as that line came into view this week.• Although CAG may need to fall back and develop a running start to punch through that technical ceiling, the weekly chart makes clear the stock is more than oversold enough to fuel a bounce.• Should Conagra make good on its promise, the next most plausible target is around $28. That's where the first Fibonacci retracement line is, and where the gray 100-day moving average line is. Intel (INTC)Finally, Intel has been a name that's been dissected several times in recent weeks, as the stock has been working on rocking its way out of last year's pullback.So far it hasn't happened. But, this week's bullishness has pushed INTC to the brink of moving all the way out of its recent technical confines. One more good day will get Intel up and over the final hurdle, unleashing a few months' worth of pent-up buying action. Click to Enlarge • That final line in the sand is $50.80, plotted in yellow, where INTC has peaked several times since July.• The trend paradigm has already shifted from a streak of lower lows to higher lows, which has pushed Intel shares above the pivotal 200-day moving average line, plotted in white.• If a breakout move can take hold, the most plausible upside target is last June's peak around $57. That $7 span between the current price and that target is more or less the same-sized span from the low and high seen as Intel worked its way through a triangle shape beginning in late June. That's not coincidental. Stocks tend to move in familiar increments.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
