Today we'll take a closer look at CF Industries Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:CF) from a dividend investor's perspective...
CF (CF) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of 58.02% and 9.43%, respectively, for the quarter ended June 2019. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?
It was much worse at one point during the day, but even with Tuesday's partial bounceback, the S&P 500 closed down to the tune of 0.26%. Investors remain hesitant to do much of anything until after they've had a chance to chew on today's interest rate decision and rhetoric.Source: Shutterstock Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) led the charge lower, losing another 6.4% of its value as investors continue to jeer the decision to sell its Upjohn arm to rival Mylan (NASDAQ:MYL). Mylan, meanwhile, gained another 3% as investors cheered what seemingly looks like a great deal. Also working against the market in a big way was Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD). Shares of the pharma outfit were off to the tune of 1.1%, despite a respectable Q2 report that included impressive progress for sales of its HIV portfolio. * The 10 Best Stocks to Invest in for August As for names worth a look at trading prospects here at the midpoint of the week, however, the stock charts of National-Oilwell Varco (NYSE:NOV), Southern Co (NYSE:SO) and CF Industries Holdings (NYSE:CF) top a short list. Here's why, and what to look for.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips CF Industries Holdings (CF)For the first four months of the year, shares of CF Industries Holdings were stuck in a range, unable to hurdle the 200-day moving average line plotted in white on both stock charts.The stock finally cleared that hurdle in June, but things have remained choppy all the same. It increasingly looks like the breakout move is the real deal, however, as CF shares continue to find support at other key lines in the sand. And, there's little doubt about the underpinnings for the move, which only renews a long-standing uptrend. * Click to EnlargeTuesday's action was not only productive, it was spurred by a push up and off of the 20-day moving average line plotted in blue. * Although it's likely to cool off again, even if just a little, the purple 50-day moving average line's cross above the 200-day line. The 'golden cross' signals that new bullish momentum is fully developed. * On the weekly chart it becomes clear that the last two key bottoms made in March and May better define a long-term support line that extends back to the middle of 2016. Southern Co (SO)A little over a week ago, Southern Co was highlighted as a name that was dancing more often with a crucial support level. Although it was still above it at the time, the rally since the beginning of the year left the utility name vulnerable to a big pullback.There's still a glimmer of hope in that regard. But, only a glimmers. Tuesday's action took a pretty good-sized chunk out of that technical support, and did so in a way that waves a major red flag. * 7 Hot Stocks That Killed It This Earnings Season * Click to Enlarge Although it didn't close below it, SO stock temporarily traded below the 50-day line on Tuesday, and it did close under the straight-line support that extend back to the beginning of the year. * Underscoring the blow sellers dealt to Southern Co shares is the volume surge behind the tumble. There may be a lot of would-be sellers waiting in the wings. * If this pressure turns into something more, a pullback to the $51.50 area isn't out of the question. That's where a Fibonacci retracement line awaits, and where the white 200-day moving average line will soon be. National-Oilwell Varco (NOV)Finally, it was an earnings report that spurred the volatility. As such, traders should proceed with caution. It may not last.Nevertheless, sometimes it's news that's required to jump-start a potential and even likely move. Now that the trigger has been released, National-Oilwell Varco shares could spend the next several days, or even weeks, following through on yesterday's dynamic bar. * Click to EnlargeThe bears initially responded to the earnings report, dragging NOV into the red. With some time to think about it, however, they changed their mind. The intraday reversal speaks volumes about the underlying sentiment. * Underscoring the likelihood that Tuesday is a pivot point is the volume spike behind it. A flood of sellers were finally flushed out, and a flood of new buyers poured in. It's the opposite of what was witnessed in February. * Although the stage is set for more upside, particularly given how oversold the stock has been since June, this is a setup that requires at least a little bit of follow-through to validate the swing.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

CF (CF) doesn't possess the right combination of the two key ingredients for a likely earnings beat in its upcoming report. Get prepared with the key expectations.
All news was interpreted as good news on Tuesday, driving the S&P 500 0.68% higher. That was the second-highest close ever for the index, and positions the market for a run to another record despite what's usually a bearish time of year.Source: Shutterstock Snap (NYSE:SNAP) set the pace, gaining nearly 5% during regular market hours and then another 8% in after-hours action in response to a big-time beat of its second-quarter revenue estimates. It was Yeti Holdings (NYSE:YETI) that logged the most noteworthy gain for the session though. Shares of the company that makes coolers and insulated cups jumped more than 12% after Cowen analysts upped their target price, explaining the company could drive "continued growth in the DTC channel without margin deterioration."Holding the market back, to the extent it could anyway, was PulteGroup (NYSE:PHM). The homebuilder's stock fell more than 8%, despite topping its quarterly sales and earnings estimates, after posting a lackluster outlook for total sales volume in 2019.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Stocks to Buy From This Superstar Fund As for the top trading prospects headed into today's action, however, it's the stock charts of KeyCorp (NYSE:KEY), CF Industries Holdings (NYSE:CF) and General Electric (NYSE:GE) that hold the most promise. Here's a closer look. General Electric (GE)For months, General Electric shares have been hammering away at a rebound. None of the efforts ever took hold though, being up-ended before getting going in earnest. Analysts have been quick to quell those moves.With Tuesday's strong surge though, and with the right context behind it, GE stock is closer to a sustained breakout move than it has been in years. One more good day could get the stock over the hump for good. If that happens, the potential upside is significant given the several months' worth of compression within a narrow trading range. * Click to EnlargeYesterday's move has pushed General Electric above a frequent ceiling around $10.50, marked in yellow on both stock charts. * Better still, Tuesday's advance took shape with a push up and off of the 100-day moving average line plotted in gray. It also moved higher on strong volume, which has been the missing ingredient thus far. * The next, and perhaps biggest, resistance from here is around $10.76, marked in red on the daily chart, where GE stock peaked a couple of times a month ago. * If that ceiling is breached, the next most plausible ceiling is as high as $16.70, where the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement line awaits. KeyCorp (KEY)At the beginning of July, KeyCorp finally punched through a long-standing resistance line that made up the upper boundary of a long-standing wedge pattern. The same move also carried KEY stock above the critical 200-day moving average line, marked in white in both stock charts. The move didn't last though. It hobbled on for a couple of days, but petered out in the middle of the month.The effort was rekindled last week, but bolstered in a big way on Tuesday. In fact, though the surge from yesterday was a bit too strong to last without at least a slight cooling first, another key ceiling is now being chipped away. * 10 Tech Stocks That Are Still Worth Your Time (And Money) * Click to EnlargeThe ceiling in question is just under $18, marked in blue on the daily chart, where KEY stock has topped out several times since February. That was yesterday's cap, more or less. * Zooming out to the weekly chart puts the recent bullishness in perspective. It's a break out a converging wedge pattern that started to take shape in late-2018. * Although the bulls may want to regroup one more time and restart the well-founded recovery effort, it would happen in the shadow of a so-called "golden cross," where the purple 50-day moving average has crossed back above the 200-day line. CF Industries Holdings (CF)Finally, CF Industries has been rallying well since its late-April low, forming a double-bottom near $39 that ultimately became the floor of a sideways trading range between $39 and $45.60. That range was snapped in June, and then re-snapped in an even more decisive fashion this month.The end result is an overbought stock that's fast-approaching a near-term resistance level. Nevertheless, if the advance can cool off without falling apart, the bigger-picture gain could last for some time. * Click to EnlargeThe near-term ceiling in question is currently at $48.98, plotted as a white dashed line, lining up the past two key peaks since April. * As of Tuesday, CF Industries shares have the advantage of rallying after another golden cross. Even if the stock slides back to regroup, the fact that the 50-day line is above the 200-day average says the longer-term trend is bullish. * The weekly chart largely explains how and why the range-bound action from earlier this year finally gave way to new bullishness. March's as well as June's low were made by a floor that extends back to late-2016 lows.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
