EBay reported earnings and revenue that beat expectations, but an ongoing business transformation put pressure on gross merchandise volume.
The market managed to snap out of a two-day funk before it raced out of control, with the S&P 500 logging a gain of 0.36% on Thursday. Nevertheless, the volume behind the move was modest, and the weight of the gains since early June are still bearing down.Source: Shutterstock The gain took shape despite Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), which fell 11% after last quarter's subscriber growth fell well short of estimates. Helping keep stocks in the black despite Netflix's stumble, above others, were International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) and Philip Morris International (NYSE:PM). Shares of Big Blue improved more than 4% following its second quarter earnings beat, and the cigarette company's stock jumped more than 8% after it crushed its Q2 outlooks.It's the stock charts of eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY), Intel (NASDAQ:INTC) and Mohawk Industries (NYSE:MHK) that offer the most promising trade prospects as the week comes to a close, however. Here's why, and what to look for.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Intel (INTC)It would be easy to give up on Intel here, after the reversal that began to take shape in late May seems to have stalled. It's too soon to throw in the towel just yet, though. INTC stock has found support right where it needed to most, and may only simply be preparing its next move. * 10 Tech Stocks That Are Still Worth Your Time (And Money) If such an effort is brewing and manages to take hold, however, there's a fair amount of upside that could actually be captured in a short period of time. Click to Enlarge• The support in question was offered by the critical 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts. This week, it's kept Intel from sinking any lower (highlighted).• That support, however, will mean nothing until INTC stock moves above the gray 100-day moving average line, which more or less coincides with a handful of highs around the $50.50 level.• The long-term pattern favors a move above current levels. Pushing up and off of a support level that now tags all the key lows since the beginning of 2018, plotted in red on both stock charts, a move to the $58 area would repeat and complete the pattern.• Still, there's a decided lack of volume behind the bullish effort thus far. Mohawk Industries (MHK)At the beginning of this month Mohawk Industries was pegged as a good breakout candidate. Though the thrust from June had rolled over, it found a technical floor at the idea spot and turned high again. The move underscored a much bigger upside effort that started to take shape late last year.MHK has knocked over another impasse in the meantime. The technical ceiling that capped the early July gain where June's peak was to be found has been hurdled as well. The backdrop isn't too shabby either. Click to Enlarge• The technical ceiling in question is $153.50, plotted in blue on both stock charts, marking where Mohawk made its last two highs.• Though hardly above average, the volume that had been missing since the late-June bounce is finally starting to take shape.• The rebound from last year's miserable pullback puts that weakness well into the rearview mirror, but also leaves no clear technical ceiling. Last July's high near $228 is the next most plausible resistance. eBay (EBAY)The initial reaction to Wednesday's post-close earnings report from eBay was extreme bullishness, unwinding a sizeable (even if not earth-shattering) setback suffered during Wednesday's regular hours action. It looked like the pause since mid-June was going to give way to a new rally.Thursday's bullishness faded quickly though, and in a big way. While EBAY stock still ended the day with a gain, it ended the day well below the highs, and the stage is set for much more weakness with even just the slightest of slipups. Click to Enlarge• Tall bars made on high volume often indicate pivot points. In this case two consecutive tall bars on volume surges suggest that the profit-takers were and are tearing in, and were planning to do so no matter what.• Zooming out to the weekly chart, we can see that the last overbought condition that coincided with a pullback from a tall weekly bar from early 2018 turned out to be a major pivot point as well.• The key here is the $38.84 area, marked in yellow on the daily chart. That's where eBay shares made a low on Wednesday, but also in late June. A move under that level could prove problematic.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

eBay (EBAY) stock was up by more than 5% on Thursday after it delivered its second-quarter earnings results on Wednesday.
IBM and eBay both moved into buy range Thursday, following quarterly results that beat expectations. EBay retook a buy point after reporting a 28% earnings advance and a 2% rise in revenue.
U.S. equities wavered on the day, with stocks initially falling on Thursday as investors digest another round of earnings. However, the indices jumped abruptly in the final 120 minutes of trading. After settling down a bit, investors eventually saw a 0.27% advance in the Nasdaq today. The PowerShares QQQ ETF (NASDAQ:QQQ) tacked on a 0.11% gain.Source: Shutterstock The S&P 500 and Dow Jones also rose on Thursday.Of course, the main discussion right now is earnings. As interesting as the banks can be, we've finally got a big one to talk about: Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX).InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Tech Earnings Kick OffNetflix reported earnings of 60 cents per share, which fell 30% year-over-year but beat analysts' expectations by 4 cents. Unfortunately, this isn't a story about profits, it's a story about growth and NFLX failed to deliver -- big time. * Dow Jones Today: An Impressive Comeback Revenue of $4.92 billion grew 33% year-over-year, but was only in-line with estimates. It's surprising NFLX didn't miss, given that subscriber results missed so badly. In the U.S., Netflix lost 126,000 subscribers, well below the 300,000 subscribers analysts were expecting it to add in the quarter. It was the company's first decline in eight years. Internationally, Netflix added 2.8 million subs, which came up short of expectations for 4.8 million.It's no surprise that shares tanked more than 10% on the day and closed near the lows. We've mentioned a few times over the past few weeks that increasing competition and Netflix losing some its top shows could be a problem. It's not like NFLX is going anywhere, but with negative free cash flow and little in the way of profits, investors may not be willing to assign it such a premium valuation.Surprisingly, the other FANG stocks took Netflix's beating pretty well.International Business Machines (NYSE:IBM) beat bottom-line expectations but -- shocker -- came up short on revenue. Still, the Street looked past the miss and bid up shares of IBM, which is now quite close to new annual highs. (Here's the trade setup). Click to EnlargeShares of eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) climbed 1.9% on Thursday, after beating on earnings and revenue expectations. However, that's well off the stock's initial 7.6% rally to $42, which set a new 52-week high in the process. Let's see if there's more upside to come in the days ahead or whether $40.50 will remain as tough resistance.Last but not least is Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT), which will report earnings after the close. Up 33.5% year-to-date, boasting a $1 trillion market cap and less than 2.5% off its highs sets up for tough bar to hurdle. Expectations call for revenue to grow 9% year-over-year to $32.77 billion and for earnings to jump 7% to $1.21 per share. And you know its Azure unit will be in focus. Heard on the Nasdaq TodayShares of Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) fell about 3.5% at one point. However, AMD ended down "just" 1.8%, after the company was downgraded by Mizuho analysts. They cut their rating from buy to neutral, but raised their price target to $37 from $33. Seems like it might be an opportunity for investors if AMD goes lower.Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) caught a lift on the day, rising about 1% on a Raymond James upgrade. The analysts went from market perform to outperform on increased confidence for next year's 5G iPhones. They also bumped Skyworks Solutions (NASDAQ:SWKS) to an outperform rating.In the M&A deal that will never end, reports now suggest that we may soon have an answer for the Sprint (NYSE:S) tie-up with T-Mobile (NASDAQ:TMUS). Apparently, if the Justice Department and the companies can't come to an agreement, the DoJ will sue to block the deal. That may not be what investors want to hear, but just to have a decision would be nice at this point.It's reminiscent of the Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM) deal for NXP Semiconductors (NASDAQ:NXPI). * 5 Top Stock Trades for Friday: IBM, HON, PM, MS, BAC Speaking of Qualcomm, shares sank about 2% on the day after the EU hit it with a $272 million fine. This follows last year's EU fine of more than $1 billion. Of course, QCOM plans to appeal the ruling, but man, does this company have some political risk or what? The DoJ, FTC, European Union, etc. This name seems to move more on government and legal rulings than fundamentals and earnings.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
