Millennials are expected to propel housing growth next year. And it's mostly because of low mortgage rates and a strong economy that has led to low unemployment and in turn higher disposable income.
A blowout non-farm payrolls report launched U.S. equities higher on Friday. Can they continue the momentum next week? Let's look at a few top stock trades that might help. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Goldman Sachs (GS)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comAt one point, it felt like you couldn't give Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) away -- that's how bad investors didn't want to own the stock. Now though? Shares are in breakout mode.$220 has been resistance for the past few months, but each dip in GS kept on getting more and more shallow. That's shown via uptrend support (blue line). With it now breaking out over resistance to new 52-week highs, bulls will likely look to keep up the momentum.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Overlooked Value Stocks to Buy That Will Shine in 2020 Should GS wobble, look to see if the $220 breakout area acts as support. If it does, it could be a buy-the-dip opportunity. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Big Lots (BIG)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comBig Lots (NYSE:BIG) roasted short sellers on Friday, ripping 30% on better-than-expected earnings. This isn't a big-time breakout like we saw with RH (NYSE:RH) the other day, but it's still an encouraging move for bulls.Now, though, potential resistance looms nearby. I want to see if BIG stock can clear the $25 to $26 area. If it can, it not only puts the declining 200-day moving average on the table, but also marks a huge turning point for sentiment.If it gets over $26, bulls will have regained substantial control.If this area acts as resistance though, it's vital that BIG protects as much of its post-earnings gains as possible. Staying above the 100-day and 50-day moving averages would be ideal, but it's now vital that the stock stays above prior downtrend resistance (blue line). Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comBristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY) jumped to new 52-week highs on Friday, as bulls continue to bid this biotech stock higher. It recently closed on its acquisition of Celgene, while on Friday declaring a dividend that was up 9.8% from its prior payout. Nice.Shares are backing off channel resistance (blue line), so it's not clear if BMY will immediately continue higher or pull back first. If it's the latter, it would be encouraging to see $58 to $59 hold as support. Below that level and channel support will be on the tableOn a rally, see if shares can take out Friday's high, potentially triggering a breakout over channel resistance. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Zoom Video (ZOOM)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comLast but not least is Zoom Video (NASDAQ:ZM). At one point Friday, shares were down more than 10% despite a beat-and-raise quarterly report.Now the setup is quite simple. Either support between $60 to $61 will hold and ZM stock will bounce, or it will fail and probe new lows.If it's the latter, bulls have no need to be involved with the stock from a trade perspective. A close below $60 and ZM will clearly need some more time before finding its footing. If it holds though, look to see if it can rally back to the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, and reclaim its post-earnings losses.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

Restoration Hardware (RH) is at a 52-week high, but can investors hope for more gains in the future? We take a look at the company's fundamentals for clues.
It was a sluggish day in the stock market on Friday, as investors gear up for a non-farm payrolls report on Friday and digest a rocky start to December. Let's look at a few top stock trades. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: RH Inc (RH)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comMan, what a blowout quarter it was for RH (NYSE:RH), formerly known as Restoration Hardware. The quarterly figures sent shares to new all-time highs, while the stock is working on its seventh straight monthly gain.After a double-digit one-day move, it's likely a bit late to start chasing the name now, but keep an eye on it going forward.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 9 Stocks That Every 20-Year-Old Should Buy On a pullback, see if prior channel resistance (blue line) acts as support. Depending how it trades, the 20-day moving average may also represent a solid buying opportunity. This recent Warren Buffett buy is certainly a buy-the-dips candidates given how well it has moved this year. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Dollar General (DG)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comDollar General (NYSE:DG) is working on slight gains after reporting earnings on Thursday. For now, the stock is giving investors a very measured level of risk.Simply put, DG is holding up at its prior gap-up level, the 100-day moving average and the backside of prior downtrend resistance (blue line). A break below this area -- call it $150 -- and DG could go on to fill its gap in the lower-$140s, technically speaking.If this area holds as support, look for a rebound up to the 50-day moving average. Above that and resistance near $162.50 may be on the table. Above that and the 52-week high of $166.98 is possible. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Kroger (KR)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comUnlike DG, Kroger (NYSE:KR) is struggling after reporting its quarterly results. However, not all hope is lost with Thursday's decline.If Kroger stock can hold up over $26.50 -- essentially, the September high and recent support -- then reclaiming the 20-day moving average is possible. Should it rebound further, see if KR can hurdle $28 and break out to the upside.If Kroger can't hold $26.50, then we need to consider some downside targets. First is the 50-day moving average and uptrend support (blue line). If it goes below that, $25.50 is possible. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Biogen (BIIB)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comMan, Biogen (NASDAQ:BIIB) has been a wild mover since October. But guess what? The stock has been in an amazing trading range -- one that saw its highs and lows tested on Thursday.One could certainly make the case that this is a "go with" trade on a break of either range support or resistance. That is, buying the breakout over resistance or selling the break below support.For traders that do take the trade though, be vigilant. This one is a wild mover with plenty of volatility. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 5: Signet Jewelers (SIG)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comSignet Jewelers (NYSE:SIG) ripped higher by more than 6% on Thursday, but resistance kept it in check.That came from both the $18 level and the declining 200-day moving average. Fortunately though, the setup is now pretty straightforward.A move over the 200-day triggers a long entry. The first upside target is Thursday's high. Above that and $21 is possible. Below $18, and support between $16 and $17 may be called upon. There it has the 20-day and 50-day moving averages, as well as uptrend support.Dip-buyers may feel comfortable nibbling on a decline into this area, but below uptrend support could send SIG stock to $15 or lower.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.
