    5 Top Stock Trades for Monday: OKTA, TSLA, BIG, NVDA

    A dismal jobs number on Friday morning only added pain to the S&P 500, which has somewhat quietly fallen for five straight sessions. Investors are now wondering if the index is set to bounce or whether more downside is in store. As that plays out, we need to keep our top stock trades in focus.For a breakdown of the S&P 500, check out yesterday's segment. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 1: OktaInvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOkta (NASDAQ:OKTA) initially fell by 8% after reporting earnings. However, it didn't take long for investors to rally the stock back up over $75. In fact, right after the report I said it a rally back over $75 wouldn't be surprising. * 5 Reasons Stocks Are Falling Right Now That was due to the company's strong earnings report and guidance, with only its earnings per share outlook disappointing the Street.With that said, we were hoping to get a pullback in this growth giant down to the $67 to $68 to area. That was a prior support area, while Fibonacci support is down in this area too. It didn't get there, with $70 and the 100-day propelling OKTA higher.Back up over the 50-day and through $80 would make it safe for bulls once again. Below the 50-day puts Friday's low back on the table. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 2: Big LotsBetter-than-expected earnings launched Big Lots (NYSE:BIG) higher by 14.5% on Friday. Shares opened at the 100-day, briefly dipped below it, then took off running.The stock isn't closing at its session highs, But a run up to the 200-day and possibly $40 certainly looks possible. With an elevated RSI and the significance of $40 as a prior support level, I'd expect this level to act as resistance on the first test.Bulls can stay long with BIG over the 100-day. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 3: TeslaShares of Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) remain volatile -- what else is new? -- as the headlines just keep on coming. Bulls have to like that the stock has stood up to the $270 test and is now moving higher.However, below $290 is discouraging and downtrend resistance is very clear. If this name can clear $315, the bulls will be firmly back in charge. A failure to clear this level upon retesting its major moving averages and downtrend resistance mean bears are still in control, but not dominating the name. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 4: NvidiaIs Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) becoming range bound between $130 and $160? It's starting to look that way, although it is technically putting together a string of higher lows as well.Bouncing on the 50-day is encouraging this Friday, but should it take out this low next week, I'd expect a decline down to $140. From there, look for a bounce off uptrend support. If it fails, the $130 range lows are on deck. Below and NVDA could be in trouble. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 5: Upland SoftwareUpland Software (NASDAQ:UPLD) isn't the biggest company around, but after its top- and bottom-line beat and 17% rally on Friday, the stock could soon be knocking on the door of the $1 billion market cap club.Over $37 and this move is officially a breakout to new highs. The question is, can it stick?I don't really want to go long at Friday's highs and use a stop-loss at the lows, as it leaves me open to a potential loss of 6.8%. However, dabbling in a name like UPLD and we could have a worse risk/reward than that. * 5 Airline Stocks In Serious Trouble Let's see what the stock does Monday or within the first few days of the week. If we get a slightly down open that quickly goes green, it gives bulls a quick long trade with an attractive risk/reward. If we get a 1- to 3-day pullback, it could setup buyers with an attractive entry using Friday's low as their stop-loss.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell. As of this writing, Bret Kenwell is long NVDA.

    Why Nike Stock Is for Investors and Under Armour Stock Is for Gamblers

    Under Armour (NYSE:UA) likes to compare itself with Nike (NYSE:NKE). Under Armour makes athletic gear. Nike makes athletic gear. Under Armour has big-name endorsers. Nike has big-name endorsers. Under Armour supports the University of Maryland. Nike supports the University of Oregon. But Under Armour stock isn't in the same class as Nike stock.Source: rodrigofranca via FlickrPut it this way. Walmart (NYSE:WMT) and Big Lots (NYSE:BIG) are both retailers but they don't compare, either.Am I being unfair? Maybe a little. But only a little. Put it this way. Nike has a market cap on March 6 of $134.4 billion. Under Armour's market cap is $9.3 billion.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOne is an investment. The other is a speculation. Nike Stock Is SuperiorNike earned $1.93 billion last year on revenues of $36.4 billion. That wasn't even a great year. It paid out 88 cents in dividends last year to 1.24 billion shares and covered that dividend with earnings twice over.The price to earnings ratio is about 64, because it's expected to do better this year. It brought in nearly $5 billion in operating cash flow during its last fiscal year and at the end of November had about $4 billion in the bank, including short-term investments.Nike put the era of founder Phil Knight in the history books long ago. While CEO Mark Parker is approaching retirement, the company has a deep bench behind him, led by CFO and executive vice president Andrew Campion, who is not yet 50.Yes, one of its shoes exploded with Zion Williamson's foot in it. Paul George, who likely will be the NBA's most valuable player this year, has the endorsement deal for the infamous shoe.Nike has literally hundreds of big-name athletes and athletic teams under endorsement contracts in any sport you care to name. Cricket, anyone? They've got India. Rugby? They have the Argentina national team. Australia rules football? The Carlton Blues.Over the last five years the value of your Nike shares has doubled, and 21 of 33 analysts following the stock say you should buy it. That's up from 17 three months ago. Under Armour Stock Doesn't CompareUnder Armour lost $46 million last year on sales of almost $5.2 billion. Let's not even talk about a dividend. This stock doesn't even have a price to earnings ratio. The company had a little over $550 million in the bank in December and had operating cash flow of $628 million. This was considered a pretty good year.Under Armour is under the absolute control of founder Kevin Plank. I say absolute because in 2016 he "split" the stock, taking the shares with voting control and leaving his shareholders to the rest. If a bus ran over him in Baltimore tomorrow (god forbid) his wife or kids would be in charge. His relationships and corporate culture draw negative attention from the press.Under Armour is a speculation. Since 2019 started its stock has done better than that of Nike. It's up 22%. But you're starting from a much lower base. Over one year, or two years, or five years, Nike has been a much better performer. The Bottom Line on Nike StockSpeculators might like Under Armour. The shares are volatile, meaning you can make money on trades and options. Last year saw a one-month spike from $14 to $22 per share in May, and another spike in November from $16 to $20. There was also a December fall from $22 per share to $15.Nike shares, by contrast, move with the market. You buy it, you put it away, you ignore it. It's the kind of stock you can give your kids. Under Armour is the kind of stock you give your bookie.Dana Blankenhorn is a financial and technology journalist.
