    3 Recent IPO Stock Pullbacks Worth Watching

    Does stock market volatility have you ready to toss in the towel? My advice is use it to your advantage with IPO stocks Pinterest (NYSE:PINS), Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND) and Luckin Coffee (NASDAQ:LK), where growth has quickly met up with value on the price chart. Let me explain.It's hard to keep up with the broader market's day-to-day gyrations. Wall Street swings from triumphant cheers to worrisome jeers and vice versa. From weak global economic data spooking investors to applause for the delay on levying tariffs on certain Chinese goods, it's hard to keep up with the headlines. * 10 Cheap Dividend Stocks to Load Up On More importantly, please don't forget the names Pinterest, Beyond Meat and Luckin Coffee. One of these stocks could be the next Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) or even Starbuck's (NASDAQ:SBUX). Bottom line, in today's wild trading environment these three recent IPO stocks are providing investors the opportunity to buy into big-time growth potential at advantageous prices.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips IPO Stock to Buy No. 1: Pinterest (PINS)PINS stock is the first of our recent IPO stocks to buy. The super popular web-based visual discovery platform blasted past earnings views and collectively caught investors' eyes as shares exploded higher by nearly 19% in early August.Technically, just over two weeks after reporting and with lots of market turbulence in between, PINS stock has pulled back approximately by 10% from a classic cup-with-handle pattern breakout attempt. This came after scoring fresh all-time highs.It's easy to blame overall market action for the first failure in this IPO stock. Ultimately, it hasn't been a great environment for buying breakouts. But with PINS stock still holding its own technically, there's reason to believe a second attempt will pay investors handsomely. PINS Stock TradeThe recommendation for PINS stock is to put shares on the radar for buying on a breakout above $35.30. That's only likely to occur if the major averages can rally for more than a day and begin to show more convincing signs of bottoming.A second approach for this IPO stock is to buy shares on weakness. I'd recommend looking for a daily chart pivot low to form. Then buy PINS stock on confirmation of a bottom. In order to keep this purchase technically constructive, I'd also make sure the PINS stock price consolidation continues to hold near $31 a share. IPO Stock to Buy No. 2: Beyond Meat (BYND)Beyond Meat is the second of our recent IPO stocks to watch. The alternative, plant-based meats company served up a sizzling, but not "meaty" enough, earnings report a couple weeks ago and word of a below-the-market secondary priced at $160 a share. The combination of reports didn't sit well with Wall Street.Technically, investors immediately punished shares, quickly dismantling BYND stock's uptrend line in free-fall-style price action. Subsequent pressure now has this first-to-market innovator testing its 50% Fibonacci level for support. BYND Stock TradeWhen will the selling pressure in this IPO stock abate? It's hard to know. But given that BYND stock is now well beneath the secondary pricing and testing a key retracement level, this deep pullback is worth monitoring for a bottom to emerge. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall My advice is for investors to wait for a weekly reversal candlestick to be confirmed before entering into a long position. With this strategy, bulls will give up some immediate profit in this highly volatile IPO stock. More importantly, the approach should allow investors to buy growth at a discount and avoid being grilled for entering too quickly. IPO Stock to Buy No. 3: Luckin (LK)Luckin Coffee is the last of our IPO stocks that's setting up to buy. I'll credit InvestorPlace's Luke Lango for alerting me to this China-based upstart and its promising path to substantial longer-term returns for investors.It's true, Luckin Coffee does have its work cut out for it. The company is competing against the aforementioned coffee powerhouse Starbucks, which has already successfully penetrated this massive overseas market. But still, the opportunity is there. And as Luke notes, with a solid technology-based focus and an eye-popping sales growth runway that's affirming this IPO stock's toehold is working, LK stock is one to pick up on weakness. LK Stock TradeLK stock is testing its 50% and 62% Fibonacci levels and its lower Bollinger Band. Shares are also oversold based on the position of its stochastics indicator. However, this week's earnings-driven breakdown of trend support shouldn't be entirely dismissed. It could be a slippery path to retest this IPO stock's all-time-low near $14 a share. Anything is possible.My recommendation on LK stock is to wait for a daily chart bottoming candle to be confirmed if shares can maintain a bid above $18.75. This allows for a modest bit of wiggle room beneath the 62% level. That also respects exiting the position on a more convincing failure of this key technical support in anticipation of a more durable purchase at deeper and well-chilled levels of investor anxiety.Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management currently own positions in Pinterest (PINS) and its derivatives, but no other securities mentioned in this article.

    With Spectacle 3, Snap Stock Is All Set for Another Major Failure

    There is no question that Snap (NYSE:SNAP) CEO and co-founder Evan Spiegel is sitting in a better position eight months into 2019. SNAP stock is up 197% year to date through August 14.Source: Shutterstock More than that, the company just issued $1.1 billion in convertible notes at the bargain-basement interest rate of 0.75%. As my InvestorPlace colleague James Brumley recently admitted, "Snap CEO Evan Spiegel has become a savvy CEO rather quickly, making SNAP stock the compelling prospect it was supposed to be two years ago (but wasn't)." When Snap went public in 2017, I wasn't a fan. Two years later, I've found myself predicting that SNAP stock will hit $20 by the end of the year. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsSpiegel has done an excellent job focusing the company on monetizing its social media app while at the same time cutting expenses. Don't get me wrong, I'm not thrilled that it lost $202 million on an EBITDA basis in the first six months of the year, but revenues continue to grow at a significant rate while free cash flow usage is diminishing. * 10 Stocks Under $5 to Buy for Fall The business is getting stronger in almost every way possible, including the ever-important daily active users, which have jumped 8% over the past 12 months to 203 million. Take a bow, Evan Spiegel. Thanks to your efforts over the past year, your net worth has risen exponentially. A Loss of FocusA piece of earth-shattering news came across the wires August 13. Team Snap announced the launch of Spectacles 3, the third version of its costly Spectacles sunglasses that capture the world in 3D. Available for pre-order at $380; they'll begin shipping the sunglasses in the fall. Remember that focus I was talking about in the intro. The development of Spectacles is the antithesis of focus. While innovation is to be applauded, Spectacles isn't the kind of creativity that will reward Snap shareholders. Not now, not ever. "Grossly overestimating demand for Spectacles in 2016, Snap was forced to take a $40 million write-down on all the first-generation units it couldn't sell… which was most of them," Brumley wrote in November 2018. Here's what I said about Spectacles in September 2018:"I wish Snap would forget about those ridiculous Spectacles. While the second generation might look a lot better, they're nothing but a distraction from its real business of selling advertising."The crazy thing about the third version is that it's almost double the price of the second. Sure, Spectacles 3 comes equipped with a second HD camera, but who in their right mind is going to pay that kind of price for two HD cameras? Perhaps the price increase is meant to ensure the company makes money on each pair sold, but something tells me this fascination with sunglasses is going to end with another writedown. It's All About Making MoneyI can understand Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG, NASDAQ:GOOGL) making this kind of crazy bet on 3D sunglasses. It generated $27.4 billion in free cash flow over the past 12 months; it's got an entire division dedicated to moonshots that aren't likely to pan out. Snap's free cash flow usage over the trailing 12 months ended Q2 2019 is $489 million, down considerably from $914 million a year earlier. It's reduced its free cash flow usage for four straight quarters, so it's going in the right direction. However, I fail to see how Spectacles 3 is going to help reduce that number even further. Until it's generating positive free cash flow, investors ought to be suspicious of vanity projects such as this one. They're a waste of time, resources and focus. While I still believe Snap stock could still hit $20 in 2019, the company's insistence on maintaining the Spectacles business portends a potential correction in 2020.If you're considering money-losing social media, I continue to prefer Pinterest (NYSE:PINS) over SNAP stock because it's got a better pathway to profitability. And most importantly, it's unlikely to make a spectacle of itself.At the time of this writing Will Ashworth did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

The heavily lossmaking property group, which stated its mission was “to elevate the world’s consciousness”, would follow Uber, Lyft and Pinterest in a rush to IPO this year after an extended period when hyped young companies have relied on private investors to supply billions of dollars of growth capital. The stampede is seen by some money managers as a sign that stock markets are near their peak.

    11 Bay Area tech IPOs and their founders' treasure troves in 2019

    Bay Area unicorn tech companies stampeded toward the IPO gate this year, making a large number of founders billionaires — in some cases more than four times over.  Seven founders of the 11 Bay Area tech companies that went public this year now hold stakes worth more than $1 billion, based on the founders’ holdings on the day of the IPO, as noted in their Securities and Exchange Commission filings, as well as closing stock prices on Monday. “The one difference from 10 years ago is many of them have already sold stock through secondaries while private, so they usually have taken care of the basics like buying a home by the time they go public,” said Andy Rachleff, co-founder and CEO of online financial advising firm Wealthfront.

    5 Top Stock Trades for Tuesday: ROKU, PINS, NFLX, MCD

    It was a tough day on Wall Street, with investors hitting the exits on trade worries, concerns over Hong Kong, and as bond prices again rally. The markets are often volatile in August, and 2019 is proving to be no exception. Here are a few top stock trades to watch. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: RokuAt one point, Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) stock was up 8% on Monday. The move adds to Roku's three-day gain, with shares up more than 30% since reporting earnings last week.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsMonday's move was inspired by the analysts at Nomura, who upped their price target to $150 per share. Despite the big move, shares are hardly overbought -- at least technically speaking via the RSI indicator (blue circle). * 7 Stocks Under $7 to Invest in Now A move into the upper $130s or lower $140s is still possible, with a Fibonacci extension near the latter. If the overall selling pressure in the market is too great, though, Roku may not be immune. In that case, see if prior short-term channel resistance (black line) can act as support on a pullback. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: PinterestPinterest (NYSE:PINS) outperformed the market on Monday, but did so in a very strange way.In midday trading, shares suddenly spiked higher, surging to $36 before retreating and giving up almost all of its 6% intraday gain. $34 remains a tough level for the stock, even after its strong earnings report last week.That said, it continues to hold $32 and its 8-day moving average. However, like other stocks, support may give way should overall market selling pressure pick up. Keep an eye on $32 support, and $31.50 just below that. Breakout traders may consider going long PINS on a close over $34. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: NetflixNetflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) stock held up okay on Monday, but its chart still looks concerning. Below, the $305 to $310 level is a concern. It will put the August lows near $297 on the table. A close below that opens up NFLX to a decline down the $270 to $275 area.On a rally, see if NFLX stock can reclaim its 20-day moving average. If it can, its 200-day is the next upside target. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: DeereDeere (NYSE:DE) stock is looking ugly. Shares rallied into former support at $155 as well as its 200-day moving average before tumbling more than 4% on Monday. The company reports earnings on Friday, adding more volatility into the stock.At this point, DE stock either needs to reclaim the $155/200-day moving average area or pull back to range support near $135. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 5: McDonald'sMcDonald's (NYSE:MCD) stock may be a flight-to-safety name, but shares are under pressure on a day where the stock market is in decline as well.The selling pressure comes as shares run into channel resistance. Now I'm looking for a test of channel support. That would put MCD in play somewhere near $213. As much as I'd hate to see MCD break channel support, a dip to $210 and the 50-day moving average would also be attractive.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell. As of this writing, Bret Kenwell is long ROKU and PINS.

    Lyft Joins the Litter of Unicorn Disappointments

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- Lyft Inc.’s rocky road as a public company should be a warning for other highfliers hoping to hit it off with stock investors. It is ugly out there for the elite startup superstars. Lyft said in its second-quarter earnings report on Wednesday that the rate of revenue growth slowed less than it had forecast and that losses weren’t as bad as investors expected. Still, even the company’s slightly raised forecast for 2019 revenue growth of as much as 62% would represent a comedown from last year, when Lyft’s revenue was doubling or more year-over-year. Both Lyft and rival Uber Technologies Inc. are posting slowing growth at the same time they’re telling investors that they’re just barely scratching the surface of their potential. Lyft shares were initially higher in after-hours trading following the release of the earnings report but then retreated.(1)Questions about Lyft’s slowing growth, high losses and the general viability of on-demand transportation have pushed its share price far below the $72 at which the company sold stock in its initial public offering in March. Shares of Uber have also been underwater since its IPO. And those two are far from alone in their misery.For all the hype about the post-2008 class of high-profile, highly valued and highly disruptive technology startups, many of the biggest “unicorns” that have gone public so far have been stinking up public stock markets like a skunk waddling into a picnic. In addition to the decline in shares of Uber and Lyft, the prices for Snapchat, Dropbox Inc., Spotify Technology SA and China’s Xiaomi Corp. and Meituan Dianping are also below their IPO levels. For many of the top tier of richly valued young technology companies, the early message from public investors has been clear: If the company’s business model is a string of question marks and there are few public precedents and high losses, stock buyers are not greeting them with open arms.  The lackluster performance of the unicorn elites isn’t a great setup for WeWork Cos., Postmates Inc., Didi Chuxing Inc. and others in the crop of still-private startup elite edging to go public soon, with even-bigger-than-Uber-sized doubts about their viability and wild valuations. Many more richly valued startups remain private, so it’s too soon to call the elite unicorn crop a success or failure. But if the top-flight startups are being greeted with skepticism in the midst of an unprecedented decade-long bull market for U.S. stocks, what happens when and if market conditions deteriorate? There are notable exceptions to the public investor shunning of unicorns. Investors are crazy in love with young tech companies that sell software or other products to businesses.(2) The tier of tech startups below the richly valued elites such as Uber — think Zoom Video and Stitch Fix Inc. — have typically fared better than many of the superstars. Pinterest Inc., the online scrapbook, has a familiar advertising-based business model, seems to be managing itself well and has a share price that reflects hopes rather than fears. (A familiar business model hasn’t helped the less competently managed Snap Inc. Even after a wild run-up this year, Snap shares are trading below the price at which the company went public in early 2017.) Even with the declines, there probably aren’t many regrets among the early backers of the elite unicorns. Investors who bought shares of companies such as Lyft and Snap early in their lives have made a fortune. Even stock buyers who bought at significantly higher prices soon before the IPO may feel fine about the investments because they were adding to stakes built earlier or they were making relatively small starter investments for giant investment funds.(3)This underscores why the last decade of startup investing has been so odd. It has been economically rational for investors to pour money into young companies and prod them to grow as big and fast as possible. Even when those startups aren’t home runs if they become public companies, those early backers have done fine, or far more than fine. There are few losers, then. The early backers of elite startups are in the black. Buyers of public stocks can shun the young companies if they are too speculative once they go public. It’s all good — except for the startups themselves, perhaps. They are the ones under the most pressure to figure out how to thrive far into the future. (1) Investors seemed a bit spooked by the company's early end to restrictions on insiders to sell Lyft stock. The company's shares are heavily shorted, which tends to exacerbate stock movements.(2) Slack Technologies Inc. may be trading below its first stock sale in its non-IPO earlier this year, but it has generally been greeted warmly and its stock trades at a rich multiple.(3) Some of the unicorns are still underwater compared with share sales from years ago. Dropbox's per-share price now is lower than private purchase of company shares from 2014. Uber's stock is about even with the the level of 2015 share sales. Snap stock price isn't much higher than private share transactions two and a half years ago.To contact the author of this story: Shira Ovide at sovide@bloomberg.netTo contact the editor responsible for this story: Daniel Niemi at dniemi1@bloomberg.netThis column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Shira Ovide is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering technology.

    3 Stocks to Buy After Impressive Earnings Beats

    Earnings beats sound good on paper, but profiting from a report is a different matter entirely. And in this season's crop there are three stocks to buy in particular that have the goods both off and on the price chart to make you solid profits.Source: Shutterstock Specifically, the stocks I have in mind are IBM (NYSE:IBM), Tyson (NYSE:TSN) and Pinterest (NYSE:PINS).Earnings season is usually a time where Wall Street waits on pins and needles for the latest report from a market bellwether such as Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) or today's Disney (NYSE:DIS) report. But this year, that show has been upstaged.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsOver the past week, macroeconomic and geopolitical risks have taken the spotlight. A questioned rate cut, surprise tariff escalation and currency manipulation accusations have all come into play. And as market action has turned quickly fearful it does beg the question, are companies with earnings beats necessarily good stocks to buy? * 10 Internet Stocks Getting Hammered The adage "a rising market floats all stocks" is a fairly well-respected generalization when it comes to investing. As such, it's easy to see why those bearish headlines have been receiving all the attention. But don't let that stop you from buying strong quarterly confessionals in IBM stock, TSN and PINS. In fact, use them to your advantage. Here's how: International Business Machines (IBM)IBM is backed by a recent earnings beat after its recent acquisition of Red Hat (NYSE:RHT) supported its emerging growth and an important pivot into software and the cloud market.Technically, the report vaulted IBM stock above a second layer of longstanding downtrend resistance within a multi-year "W" or double-bottom shaped base. Now, with this week's headline fears taking shares back down into a testing position of prior resistance, the base's 50% level and uptrend support from its December low, IBM is a stock to buy on weakness.IBM Stock TradeMy advice for IBM is to purchase IBM stock on a move back above the support zone as shares clear $141. I'd caveat buying the reversal with IBM holding above $134.50. That's roughly the low of the support area and should be respected or risk an increased chance of a bearish trend developing and much larger losses. Tyson Foods (TSN)Tyson Foods is another name that's backed by a solid earnings beat this week, as well as news the company is distributing a new plant-based chicken nugget option to more than 4,000 grocery stores this fall under its Raised & Rooted business.Alternative meat products are a huge growth market that has made headlines recently with Beyond Meat's (NASDAQ:BYND) amazing IPO debut. It's also an area where Tyson Foods is obviously well-positioned to enter.Technically, Wall Street is very agreeable with TSN stock's double serving of good news. Shares have broken out of a massive pair of cup-shaped bases this week. Now and with the latest macro headlines weighing in on sentiment, TSN is a key stock to buy as it tests a very well-built breakout supported by a bullish, oversold stochastics crossover signal.TSN Stock TradeMy recommendation for TSN stock is to purchase shares today. The pullback has tested support and puts this entry within a couple percent of this successful challenge. * 7 SPDR ETFs and What They Tell Us About the Market To contain downside exposure and given the market's elevated volatility, I'd place a stop beneath the recent low of $78.66. This minimizes risk to just under 7% and keeps bulls out of harm's way in the event of a larger technical failure. Pinterest (PINS)PINS stock is the last of our three stocks to buy. The hugely popular web-based visual discovery platform knocked its earnings confessional out of the ballpark late last week. And Wall Street noticed as investors spiked shares higher by nearly 19%.Technically, the initial enthusiasm in PINS resulted in shares jumping aggressively above the base's 50% and 62% resistance levels and straight into a challenge of its pattern and all-time-high. Now and courtesy of today's external headline threats, this stock is forming a small and constructive consolidation with which to purchase shares.PINS Stock TradeMy recommendation for PINS stock is to put shares on the radar for buying in one of two ways. Given the cup-shaped base, gaining long exposure on a confirmed breakout is a classical approach to buying a growth stock like Pinterest. Usually though, this type of entry occurs during healthier market action.Alternatively and in today's environment, buying shares on weakness down toward the 62% level, if PINS can also put together a daily chart reversal pattern, is approachable.For a breakout entry, using a common 7% to 8% stop-loss is advised. With the latter buy-on-weakness method, simply placing an exit slightly beneath the pattern bottom or just below the base's 62% level makes good sense.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in securities mentioned in this article.

    Twitter, Facebook Sink With Shootings Raising the Specter of Regulation

    (Bloomberg) -- Twitter Inc. is on track for its biggest one-day drop since February and Facebook Inc.’s plunge from this year’s high accelerated as investors weighed the prospect of government oversight following the shootings over the weekend.President Trump said he ordered federal officials to work with the companies to try and identify people whose social-media postings indicate they may commit mass murder before they act. While Trump did not call for any specific regulations, the companies have been facing increasing scrutiny over how they police the content users post online and their power to influence public discourse.The president’s remarks came in the wake of a pair of rampages in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio that killed 29 people. The alleged gunman who killed 20 people at an El Paso shopping center posted anti-immigrant screed online just before the attack.Facebook, too, may be facing more tangible threats. Last week, the Federal Trade Commission was reported to be scrutinizing acquisitions by Facebook as part of an early stage antitrust investigation, according to people familiar with the matter.The Global X Social Media ETF fell as much 4.2%, the most since October.
