The bulls finally started fighting back late in the day, but it didn't matter. Even coming up off the intraday day low of 2,805.49, the S&P 500's close of 2,822.24 was still 1.19% worse than Wednesday's last trade.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) inflicted the most net damage, falling 2.5% for no particular reason other than it's a high-profile name that could easily fold if investors continue to broadly see stocks as liabilities. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) technically lost more ground though, off 3.8% simply by being a top tech name. Technology stocks are being seen as the most vulnerable group as trade tensions between China and the United States escalate.There were some winners, believe it or not, though not many. Top among that small group was L Brands (NYSE:LB). Shares of the parent company of Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works rallied 12.8% in response to a surprisingly promising first-quarter report.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Names That Are Screaming Stocks to Buy None of those tickers are promising trade prospects headed into Friday's action though … too volatile to be predictable. Take a look at the stock charts of Moody's (NYSE:MCO), Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) and Alaska Air Group (NYSE:ALK) instead. Here's why. Alaska Air Group (ALK)Alaska Air Group shares have been all over the place since the middle of last year. While the 2017 and early 2018 selloff has been quelled, several recovery efforts in the meantime have also been quelled. In fact, ALK slipped to new 52-week lows in March, teasing of another prolonged downtrend.That disaster has so far been avoided, but Alaska Air is hardly back in an uptrend. Thanks to yesterday's action though -- and specifically, the placement of yesterday's bar -- this is a name to put back on your radar. Click to Enlarge * The big clue from Thursday is the way the stock pushed up and off of the purple 50-day moving average line to turn a loss into a gain (on a day the market was getting hammered, no less). * The next big line in the sand is the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts. And it is a biggie, acting as resistance a couple of times already this month. * Although prior rally efforts have all failed rather early on, the fact that the bulls keep swinging is telling in and of itself. Moody's (MCO)The past couple of weeks haven't just been unusually volatile for Moody's. They've been volatile in an unusual way. The swings have been rather extreme, not just big changes in the day-to-day closes, but entire low-to-high ranges that haven't overlapped much with the prior day's range. That's often a sign of more indecision than it seems there is on the surface.That indecision appears to have finally resulted in something of a death blow yesterday, although there's still one narrow escape path the bulls could take if they're willing to stick together. * 7 Marijuana Stocks to Play the CBD Trend Click to Enlarge * That 'death blow' is the break below the purple 50-day moving average line, underscored by the fact that MCO shares still managed to start the day above that mark. * It's only modestly meaningful given its young age, but the lower edge of the trading range plotted with white dashed lines on the daily chart is still holding up as support. * While that near-term support line remains intact, notice how much selling volume came pouring out of the woodwork on Thursday when the trouble solidified. * Zooming out to the weekly chart it becomes clear that Moody's overextended itself early in the year and is now ripe for some profit-taking. Comcast (CMCSA)Finally, it may not have fallen off the edge of the cliff just yet, but Comcast shares have defined exactly where that edge is. And, they did so right after touching what was the most logical place for the stock to make a major peak.If the bears can just get one or two more licks in, the already vulnerable CMCSA chart could topple in a big way. Click to Enlarge * The make-or-break level is right above $42, where Comcast shares found a bottom for a few days a couple of weeks back. The floor is marked with a yellow line on the daily chart. * In the meantime, the purple 50-day moving average line has moved into position to either serve as, or fail to act as, a technical floor right around that same level. * Backing out to the weekly chart it's clear that revisiting the early 2018 high around $43.85 presented some sort of psychological problem for the rally … not that CMCSA wasn't overbought as of last month anyway.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

The Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) continues to add to its attractions as it launches Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at its Disneyworld and Disneyland parks. The Parks and Resorts division has long served as Disney's strongest division regarding profit growth. Still, whether that will help Disney stock remains unclear. Over the last few years, the shares fell and then increased based on television, and now, the performance of its streaming services. Given recent historical patterns, streaming, and not theme parks, will continue to drive the DIS stock price.Source: Richard Stephenson via Flickr (Modified)For all of the talk about theme parks, media has long driven Disney shares. The steady increases that defined DIS stock for the first half of the decade came to an abrupt halt in 2015. Customers were dropping both the Disney Channel and ESPN en masse as they turned away from cable and satellite to TV to lower-cost streaming services.Things changed last month when the company announced a launch date for its streaming service, Disney+. But streaming for Disney is shaping up to be more than just Disney+ and ESPN+. The company picked up 10% more of Hulu from AT&T (NYSE:T). That boosted Disney's Hulu stake to 70% and with it came full control of the content and streaming platform per an agreement with co-owner Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA), which agreed to sell its 30% stake to Disney in five years.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 High-Yield REITs to Buy (Even When the Market Tanks) Nobody expects these streaming services to make up for the revenue lost from its declining subs from the Disney Channel and ESPN. In fact, profit estimates have fallen in recent weeks as the prospect of higher content costs weighs on DIS. Analysts now forecast that profits will fall by 7.2% this year and by 2% in 2020. Disney Stock Depends on Multiple ExpansionNonetheless, the challenge that Disney+ poses to Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) inspired a one-day 11.5% bump following the announcement. The DIS stock price has retreated modestly since that time. Still, with a Disney stock price of around $134 per share, the forward price-to-earnings (PE) ratio now stands at about 20.That's a problem. The five-year average PE comes in at around 18.8. Over the last 10 years, the average PE ratio on Disney stock has never reached above 22. The consensus price target now stands at $150 per share, with other estimates going as high as $170 per share. Reaching the $150 per share target would take the PE ratio to around 23.That represents an increase of just under 12% from current levels. Hence, traders need only see a modest move higher before Disney stock becomes a bet on multiple expansion.It could happen. At current prices, Netflix trades at just over 100 times forward earnings. And let's not forget about the mere announcement of the Disney+ launch that led to a massive one-day spike in Disney stock.I see this as a reasonable bet for current long-term holders of DIS. Given the success of the theme parks and franchises, profit growth will resume at some point. They have past profits and a higher dividend yield to rely on. However, new buyers face more of a gamble. If they do not get the needed multiple expansion, they might have to wait years before they turn a profit on Disney stock. Bottom Line on Disney StockTheme parks may drive Disney but in recent years, subscriber numbers have driven Disney stock. With the opening of the Star Wars-themed areas, one has to assume the Parks and Resorts division will continue to lead the company in revenue growth. Unfortunately, this has brought little benefit to holders of DIS stock. That trend will likely continue. * 7 Stocks to Buy for Over 20% Upside Potential DIS stagnated for years as cable-cutting led to smaller audiences for both the Disney Channel and ESPN. Now, it recently moved to record highs after the Disney+ announcement.Unfortunately, to move significantly higher, Disney stock will have to do something it has not done in decades -- trade at more than 22x earnings. Streaming media could drive multiple expansion. If it sustains itself above a 23x PE, DIS stock could move much higher. However, if traders balk, new investors could wait years before seeing a profit in DIS.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Walt Disney World's reign at the top of the theme park food chain continues, thanks to the help of its Pandora — The World of Avatar land that opened in summer 2017 at Disney's Animal Kingdom theme park. The study provides a peek at the potential attendance for theme parks like The Walt Disney Co. (NYSE: DIS) and Universal Parks & Resorts that do not publicly share their annual attendance. The study shows that Disney's Orlando parks welcomed a total of 58.2 million visitors last year, up 4.3% from 55.8 million in 2017.

Italy's antitrust regulator will impose a three-year ban on Sky's Italian unit from distributing exclusive contents on its online video-streaming service platform, it said on Wednesday. The move follows a deal between Sky Italia and Italy's biggest commercial broadcaster, Mediaset, which the regulator said would further limit competition in a market where Sky Italia is already a dominant player. Mediaset said last year it was selling its digital terrestrial pay-TV assets, known as R2, to Sky Italia as part of a broader content agreement between the two broadcasters.
