PulteGroup, Inc. , will present at the Raymond James 40th Annual Institutional Investors Conference on Monday, March 4, 2019, at 1:05 p.m. .
It may not be the way most investors wanted the threat of another government shutdown to end -- with the declaration of a national emergency intended to accelerate the construction of "the wall" -- but Wall Street loves certainty. The S&P 500 gained 1.1% on Friday to log the best close in three months.Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) led the charge with its 2.5% advance, bolstered by word that Warren Buffett was adding to his bank positions last quarter, including more BAC stock.Making the day's gains even more impressive is the scope of the advance despite some major setbacks. Mattel (NASDAQ:MAT) was off more than 18% on a lackluster outlook for the coming year. Newell Brands (NASDAQ:NWL) fell more than 20% for the same reason.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsYet, of the stock charts we're most interested in, more of them have bullish potential than bearish. Those charts are Visa (NYSE:V), D. R. Horton (NYSE:DHI) and Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN). Here's what to note. D. R. Horton (DHI)Last week Lennar (NYSE:LEN) was noted as a budding breakout candidate. Earlier in the month, rival homebuilder PulteGroup (NYSE:PHM) was dropping the same hints. * 10 Hot Stocks Leading the Market's Blitz Higher D. R. Horton is knocking on that door as of last week's close. One more good day could get it over the hump. Click to Enlarge • That hump is the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts. DHI pushed above that level earlier in the week only to fall back below it, but the bulls were quick to put it back in the hunt.• Zooming out to the weekly chart we see multiple buy signals, including a bullish MACD cross and a Chaikin line that's back above zero.• If the brewing breakout effort can take hold, the most plausible upside target is around $46.40, where D. R. Horton was capped for the better part of last year. Amazon.com (AMZN)A couple of bad days for a stock isn't necessarily the end of the world. It happens. But, when a high-profile market darling is not only skipping out in a month-long marketwide rally because it's bumping into familiar technical resistance, that's a red flag.That's Amazon.com right now. It got January started with a bang, but has been suspiciously weak of late. As of Friday, it's resting on a last-ditch perch that's preventing the sellers from pulling the rug out from underneath it. Click to Enlarge • The precision with which the rally was stopped is the key concern. All it took as a brush of the white 200-day moving average line in mid-January and then again in late January to push AMZN to lower lows.• As of Friday's last trade, the purple 50-day average line is holding up as support, but just barely. The next move under it could start a profit-taking avalanche.• The one thing working in the stock's favor right now is the lack of volume behind the selling, although there has been a distinct lack of buying volume as well. Visa (V)Two months ago Visa was in real trouble … as were most names. It plugged into the same rebound that sent most stocks higher in January though, and is not only out of trouble, bat may be on the verge of a major move. That move should be higher too, given the recent action.Ideally though, before breaking out, Visa would peel back a little, regroup, and then put the breakout thrust in place at a more sustainable pace. Click to Enlarge • The line in the sand $146, plotted with a white dashed line. V is on pace to push above that level, but has become overextends since its mid-January low.• There's even more going on here than initially meets the eye. On the weekly chart we can see two years' worth of unfettered rally that drove a divergence of all the key moving average lines. That divergence was reversed into a convergence last month -- highlighted on the daily chart -- which provides fuel for a fresh divergence.• Though the undertow is bullish, a dip back to the blue 20-day or gray 100-day moving average lines would let the rally "reset" and provide a chance for the purple 50-day average to cross back above the white 200-day line … a buy signal in and of itself.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Stocks mustered their second day of consecutive gains on Thursday, although not without a couple of hiccups. Still riding the euphoria wave put in motion by Wednesday's dovishness from the Federal Reserve, the S&P 500 advanced 0.86% to move within striking distance of some key resistance levels. General Electric (NYSE:GE) and Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) did most of the heavy lifting. The beleaguered industrial giant saw its share soar more than 11% after posting fourth-quarter numbers suggesting the company isn't beyond salvaging just yet. Meanwhile, the king of social networking's stock jumped almost the same amount after reporting Q4 earnings and revenue that topped expectations. Some of the losers, however, were big losers. DowDuPont (NYSE:DWDP) dragged the Dow Jones Industrial Average to a small loss on Thursday when the stock tanked to the tune of 9.2% following a lackluster fourth-quarter print and a similarly lackluster outlook. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips The wild swings continue to make most names too tough to trade, though the stock charts of Hologic (NASDAQ:HOLX), Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) and PulteGroup (NYSE:PHM) have mostly sidestepped that volatility to work on the development of their own trends. ### Microsoft (MSFT) With just a quick glance, it would be easy to chalk up yesterday's pullback from Microsoft as a typical reaction to a so-so earnings report. Indeed, the 1.8% stumble isn't even all that remarkable. * 7 Stocks With Too Much Riding On China There may be more at work here than just the reaction to the company's fiscal Q2 numbers, though. In taking a step back and looking at the bigger picture, it's possible a setback was inevitable yesterday. In fact, it's possible a little more downside from here is already a foregone conclusion. Click to Enlarge • It's only evident to those who bother to notice, but MSFT stock has been trapped in a well-framed downtrend since October. It bumped into a couple of resistance lines last week, and rolled over as if on cue. • Arguably worse, as of yesterday, the purple 50-day moving average line has crossed below the white 200-day average. This so-called "death cross" will likely be viewed by some traders as a clear sell signal starting today. • One has to zoom out to the weekly chart to see it, but Microsoft shares moved into an overbought condition over the course of 2017 and 2018. That has left it vulnerable to profit-taking here and now. A lower low today could trigger the next bearish leg. ### Hologic (HOLX) If Hologic rings a bell, there's a good reasons. It's one of the stock charts we've dissected multiple times in recent weeks as it navigates its way through a couple of different trading ranges. It's now above one, but still stuck inside the other. But, with this week's volatility thus far on the books, it's worth another look just because it's so close to completing the breakout effort that's been in the works for months. Click to Enlarge • The upper edge of one of the trading ranges is horizontal resistance at $45.20, marked with a red dashed line on both stock charts. That ceiling has capped HOLX stock since early 2018, now halting an uptrend for a third time. • Also in play is the converging wedge shape that was cleared in November. It's plotted with white dashed lines on both stock charts, and though Hologic fell back inside that range in December, crawling back out of it in January wasn't a problem. • Although shares tried to break above $45.20 yesterday and ultimately failed, the bulls held their ground reasonably well. More specifically, it's encouraging that traders kept Hologic in position to make another try today. ### PulteGroup (PHM) Finally, though we've seen PulteGroup start a breakout thrust in early January that ultimately failed, this second effort is noteworthy. Often times it's the second effort that sticks in place and actually gets the job done. Besides, the pullback from the previous bullish thrust actually cleaned up a key liability and cleared the deck for a more sustainable rally now. Click to Enlarge• The buy signal here is Thursday's move back above the white 200-day moving average line. But, that's only part of the big clue. Just as important is the tall bar from Tuesday that ultimately served as the pivot. The bears had their chance to tip PHM over for good, but couldn't keep it down. • That short dip in mid-January, in fact, went back to fill in the big gap left behind at the beginning of the month. Generally speaking, the market doesn't like to leave such gaps behind. • Nevertheless, though there's clearly more bullish volume than bearish volume in play, one more higher close above the 200-day moving average would firm up this incomplete bullish clue.

PulteGroup Inc (NYSE:PHM) files its latest 10-K with SEC for the fiscal year ended on December 31, 2018.
U.S. homebuilder PulteGroup Inc reported its worst quarterly fall in orders since 2013 on Tuesday and said it was having to spend heavily on incentives for buyers, weakening its margins, in the face of the shakiest outlook for spring sales in years. Chief Executive Officer Ryan Marshall said incentives for Pulte have been effective in increasing sales, but joined larger peer D.R. Horton Inc in suggesting last year's rises in U.S. house prices were discouraging buyers. "Thinking about 2019, there is less certainty about demand heading into this spring selling season than the industry has experienced in a number of years," Marshall said on the call with analysts.
