Investing in small cap stocks has historically been a way to outperform the market, as small cap companies typically grow faster on average than the blue chips. That outperformance comes with a price, however, as there are occasional periods of higher volatility. The last 8 months is one of those periods, as the Russell 2000 […]
That's four big daily wins in a row for stocks, with the S&P 500's gain of 1.05% on Friday. It's still too soon to call it the beginning of a recovery move; it's almost too much, too fast. But, it buys time for the bulls to regroup.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) carried more than its fair share of the weight, rallying 2.8% to cross back above the $1 trillion market cap mark. Weighing the market down was the 1.26% tumble from Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), setting the tone that adversely impacted most other banking names. Concerns of interest rate cuts rattled bank investors, as lower interest rates threaten bank profits. * 7 A-Rated Stocks to Buy Under $10 Neither are especially compelling trading prospects headed into this week's trading action though. Rather, take a look at stock charts of McKesson (NYSE:MCK), Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) and CenterPoint Energy (NYSE:CNP). Here's why, and what needs to happen next.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips CenterPoint Energy (CNP)When we last looked at CenterPoint Energy back on May 15, it had just pushed up and off of its 200-day moving average line, only to run into resistance again. While it could have gone either way at the time, the bears actually had the edge.Since then, the 200-day line failed to keep the stock propped up. Sure, CNP snapped back in early June to cross back above the very same 200-day moving average line. With the shape and placement of Friday's bar, however, it appears CenterPoint shares are back en route to even lower lows. Click to Enlarge * The red flag is Friday's engulfing pattern, meaning the high open and low close completely engulfed Thursday's low/high range. Such a sweeping change of heart is telling. * Simultaneously, the big bearish swing also dragged CNP back below the pivotal 200-day line, plotted in white on both stock charts. * If the selling gets traction, the next likely landing spot is just under $27, where CNP found support for the better part of last year. Coca-Cola (KO)With nothing more than a quick glance, Coca-Cola looks enticing. Shares have been rallying quite well since February's low, seemingly unstoppable. The fact that a long-term resistance line, plotted in white on the weekly chart, was hurdled last week only bolsters the bullish argument.A closer, more thorough look at the weekly chart, however, reveals the advance just bumped into another rather well-established ceiling. Meanwhile, the shape of Friday's bar also suggests we're ready to pivot back into a pullback. * 10 Stocks to Buy That Could Be Takeover Targets Click to Enlarge * Friday's high aligns with the prior two major peaks from KO stock, plotted in red on the weekly chart that's also on the verge of an overbought RSI indicator. * In the daily timeframe, the open and close both near the low of a relatively tall bar, which also suggests a move from a net-buying to a net-selling environment. * While the stage is set, the move won't be complete until we get a confirmation in the form of a lower close. McKesson (MCK)Finally, given its multi-year history, doubting McKesson is on the mend now wouldn't be a tough conclusion to make. And, that may well be the case here despite a couple of bullish curiosities. Nevertheless, those curiosities are worth pointing out, as a recovery effort from here could lead into a major rally effort. Click to Enlarge * Most noteworthy is also the least noticed … not only are we now seeing a bullish MACD convergence, the most recent MACD crossover took place above the prior one. It points to a longer-term advance that needs multiple efforts to get going. * At the same time, notice on the daily chart that all the key moving average lines are about to converge after last year's divergence. The big clue to watch for is the purple 50-day average crossing above the white 200-day line. That's a "golden cross" that suggests more bullishness ahead. * The ultimate ceiling, however, is currently at $135. That's the line that connects all the major peaks since September, marked in yellow on both stock charts.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

CenterPoint (CNP) reported earnings 30 days ago. What's next for the stock? We take a look at earnings estimates for some clues.
Given Monday's steep selloff, Tuesday's bounce wasn't a big surprise. It also was anything but convincing. The S&P 500's gain of 0.8% and close of 2,834.41 was well off the day's high of 2,852.42, leaving the matter of more selling in question.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)General Electric (NYSE:GE) set the tone, and pace, gaining 4.6% mostly thanks to word that it had secured some important power plant business. Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND) once again logged one of the day's best gains though, up 14.6% as investors continue to fall in love with the idea of meatless meat.Although they couldn't drag the broad market into the red, there were some losers, led by Nissan Motor (OTCMKTS:NSANY). Shares of the carmaker fell 7.2% in response to another disappointing quarterly report, underscored by a poor outlook for this year.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Retirement Stocks That Won't Wilt in a Bear Market Here, at the midpoint of the week, however, it's the stock charts of Take-Two Interactive Software (NASDAQ:TTWO), CenterPoint Energy (NYSE:CNP) and Kimco Realty (NYSE:KIM) that are of the most interest. Here's what to look for. Take-Two Interactive Software (TTWO)Sometimes, context is everything. It certainly has been for Take-Two Interactive Software shares during just the first two trading days of the week, particularly given that last quarter's less-than-thrilling earnings were posted on Monday.The stock fell, with the market, but didn't fall anywhere near as much as it should have given the bearish environment and the fact that earnings fell. That, followed by yesterday's oversized gains implies traders have been waiting for any reason to buy. Having tipped their hand, the breakout effort may be unstoppable now. Click to Enlarge * Notice that the thrust is shaping, and being shaped by, a diverging wedge pattern plotted in white dashed lines. Any defined framework like this is a bullish clue. * Underscoring Tuesday's gain is the volume surge behind it. * Backing out to the weekly chart we can tell this uptrend has actually been developing for a while. The Chaikin line's cross above zero last month and the MACD cross from March has only widened in the meantime. * A cross above the recently developed ceiling of the diverging wedge could readily accelerate the rally effort from here. Kimco Realty (KIM)Kimco Realty actually trailed the broad market's sizeable rally on Tuesday. But, it also sidestepped the even-bigger meltdown on Monday and has found support at key levels of late while the overall market has been hit hard. More than that, it has found support at familiar floors. While there's still one key hurdle left ahead, the undertow has been resiliently bullish. We'll take the hints.Above all else, KIM stock is back above the key level around $18, plotted in yellow on both stock charts. That line has been support and resistance in recent weeks. * 10 'Buy-and-Hold' Stocks to Own Forever Click to Enlarge * Augmenting the support at $18 is more recent support provided by the purple 50-day moving average line and the blue 20-day moving average. That support is highlighted, as is last month's similar support from the gray 100-day moving average line. * It takes the longer-term view of the weekly chart to fully appreciate how well the new uptrend is forming now that the downtrend of 2017 has been snapped and 2018's stagnation is in the rearview mirror. We've now seen a higher high and higher low. * A break above March's high near $18.80 could wind up being a bullish catalyst with lots of room left to recover. CenterPoint Energy (CNP)CenterPoint Energy is a name that has been off and on the radar for several weeks now. It had slipped off in April, when the break above a key ceiling early this year faded into a period of sideways movement. The past few days have been volatile enough to put it back in focus. But this focus comes with no clarity as to which direction it really wants to go next. The good news is, the recent action has defined where the key lines in the sand are. Click to Enlarge * Friday's reversal was prodded by a new encounter with the white 200-day moving average line, though the horizontal line around $29 -- plotted in blue on both stock charts -- had also been a key support and resistance level before being revisited. * Although the reversal was impressive, it was also halted abruptly at the gray 100-day moving average line on Monday. The stock rolled over on Tuesday, falling against a bigger bullish tide. * Notice that the two bearish days sandwiching Friday's and Monday's gains were both higher volume days, suggesting there are more buyers than sellers. * If the floor around $29 snaps, the next most likely floor is around $27, where shares found support several times in the last few months of last year.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
