Today we'll look at Lamb Weston Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:LW) and reflect on its potential as an investment. To be precise...
The market may have popped on Tuesday, but it wasn't a terribly impressive move. The S&P 500's 0.85% gain still left it below some key technical lines, and the volume behind the gain was tepid.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Array Biopharma (NASDAQ:ARRY) was the big winner, gaining 23% following news that its colon cancer regimen met its endgoals in a late-stage trial. Among the more familiar, large and market-moving names though, the 2.5% gain Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) logged was less thrilling though more noteworthy. The partial alleviation of trade tensions, particularly surrounding tech, released the hold that had stymied most of these names on Monday.At the other end of the spectrum, retailer Kohl's (NYSE:KSS) was crushed, losing more than 12% of its value on the heels of lousy Q1 print that forced the company to dial back its full-year profit forecast … weakness that wasn't necessarily mirrored by other retailers.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Small-Cap Stocks That Look Like Bargains None of those names are compelling trade prospects as we head into the midpoint of the week, however. Rather, it's the stock charts of TJX Companies (NYSE:TJX), Lamb Weston Holdings (NYSE:LW) and Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) that are worth the closest look. Here's that look. Oracle Corporation (ORCL)Oracle shares have dished out an impressive runup since late last year, and for the most part have sidestepped the recent market turbulence.Take a closer look at both stock charts, though, and it's clear that momentum is slowing. Indeed, it has stopped and it is teetering on a reversal back into a downtrend. One or two more rough days could put shares into a more pronounced selloff. Click to Enlarge * The most important line to watch now is the one that tags all the key lows going back early February. It's plotted in yellow on the daily chart. It's at $53.59 right now. * Although that floor is still intact, ORCL has already pulled below the purple 50-day moving average line a couple of different times. * Zooming out to the weekly chart of Oracle, all the key bearish clues are lining up. The RSI line only had to kiss the 70 level last month before starting to unwind, and we could see a bearish MACD cross before the end of the week. That latter event could spur some programmed selling. TJX Companies (TJX)In the middle of yesterday's trading session, TJX Companies shares looked like they were in real trouble. Already trending lower from a late-April peak, fresh pressure was being put on the white 200-day moving average line. Despite the earnings beat and raised outlook, traders saw matters through a bearish lens … right up until they didn't.By the end of the day, TJX shares were back in the black, having pushed up and off of the critical 200-day line. The big intraday swing backed by a clear volume surge suggesting a major turning of the tide. There's just one more hurdle for the bulls to clear, though it's a huge one. * 7 Safe Stocks to Buy for Anxious Investors Click to Enlarge * The big hurdle in question is actually the combination of the blue 20-day moving average line at $53.88 as well as the purple 50-day moving average line at $53.57. * The scope of the swing itself is telling, indicating a sweeping change of heart, prompted by news. Such reversals tend to go somewhere. * Almost just as likely, though, is a breakdown. Should the bears decide to retest the 200-day line at $51.49 (and the gray 100-day moving average line right below it at $51.18) and it fails to hold as a floor, the bearish momentum in place since late April could pile-drive the stock following a failed reversal. Lamb Weston Holdings (LW)Finally, when we last looked at Lamb Weston Holdings a month ago, we cautioned that while it had not yet broken below a major support line, the undertow was alarmingly bearish. The selling volume was picking up the pace as well.It turned out to be a worthy worry, though only for a few days. While LW stock edged its way back higher, it met a familiar technical ceiling to end up breaking under any of what could have been technical floors. A new one has been made in the meantime, but it's not great, and also starting to crumble. Click to Enlarge * The newest technical floor is right around $65.17, plotted in blue on the daily chart. That's more or less where Lamb Weston has found support since the beginning of the month. * Although there's a floor in play now, both of the more meaningful support lines plotted in red and yellow on both stock charts have been snapped. * It's easy to overlook, but the purple 50-day moving average line is now below the white 200-day moving average … a so-called "death cross" that suggests more selling is ahead. * It's only readily evident on the weekly chart, but with the break under the yellow "neckline," Lamb Weston appears to have just completed a bearish head-and-shoulders setup.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Given its modestly poor performance on Tuesday and Wednesday, the odds were against a gain on Thursday headed into the long weekend. But the S&P 500 defied the odds, clawing its way back out of the red to leave behind a 0.16% gain. It's clear, however, the weight of the gains since late December aren't going to be easy to shrug off.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Investors can thank General Electric (NYSE:GE) for doing a great deal of the heavy lifting. Shares of the struggling industrial giant were up 2.5% after Melius Research analyst Scott Davis claimed a top industrial investor is stepping into the beaten-down stock.At the other end of the spectrum, Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) fell 1.5%, extending a sector-wide selloff that largely stems from an uncertain future for healthcare. Most Democratic Presidential candidates are developing a platform on government-managed healthcare, while Republicans aren't offering much in the way of alternatives.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 6 Cheap Stocks That Cost Less Than $10 Neither of those names is a particularly great trading prospect as the new trading week kicks off though. Rather, take a look at the stock charts of CF Industries Holdings (NYSE:CF), Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) and Lamb Weston Holdings (NYSE:LW) for your best bets. Caterpillar (CAT)Caterpillar shares have been losing ground since early 2018. Although 2017 was almost heroic, fear of tariffs followed by the actual implementation of those tariffs took a sizeable toll on CAT stock.Things have changed since October's low though. We've seen a string of higher lows, and as of the end of last week, higher highs. There's just one more hurdle to clear before Caterpillar stock is in full-blown breakout mode. Click to Enlarge * The breakout trigger would be a thrust above the upper edge of the falling trading range plotted in white on the weekly chart. One or two more good days could get the stock past that ceiling. * In the meantime, CAT stock has cleared a horizontal ceiling at $142.83, plotted with a yellow dashed line on both stock charts. Shares hit highs there a couple of times before pushing above that resistance last week. * If the breakout takes hold, the most plausible upside target is around $159, where CAT peaked several times in the middle of last year. That level is marked with a dashed blue line on the daily chart. Lamb Weston Holdings (LW)You may be more familiar with Lamb Weston Holdings than you realize. The company supplies potato products to the restaurant industry. Restaurants sell 80 million servings of Lamb Weston-supplied fries every single day. It may also be unfamiliar simply because it has only been a publicly traded entity since late 2016, when it was spun off by ConAgra Foods (NYSE:CAG).LW stock had a pretty good post-spinoff run too. As of last week though, it's pretty clear the post-spinoff euphoria has run its course. LW stock is one bad day away from a major meltdown. * 10 Best Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever Click to Enlarge * Thursday's low lines up with the last two major lows, plotted with a yellow dashed line on both stock charts. * Although the intermediate-term support is still intact, the horizontal support at $68.00, where Lamb Weston stock found a floor a few times in February and March, failed as a floor on Thursday. * It's subtle and not yet convincing, but Friday's bearish volume in LW stock was above average. It's a hint that there may be a lot more nervous investors waiting in the wings to dump their stake should things get any worse. CF Industries Holdings (CF)A month ago, CF stock was close to a breaking point. It was moving back toward a low around $89 for a second time after falling to that level in early March, with some momentum behind the effort.The stock never slipped over the edge though. Rather, it pushed up and off that floor at $89 to make a double bottom. Now shares are within striking distance of a couple of different technical ceilings that could prove quite catalytic. Click to Enlarge * The first of those technical ceilings is $45.40, marked with a red dashed line. That's where shares peaked in February, and so far where they've peaked in April. * Bolstering the bullish case is the amount of buying volume that materialized the last two days of last week. There are willing buyers out there. * Further bolstering the bullish case is the way CF stock found support at a well-established support line plotted in purple on the weekly chart. It has tagged all the key lows going back to late 2016. * At this point, the make-or-break line is the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
