Although down for the better part of the day, stocks managed to fight their way back into the black on Monday. The S&P 500's 0.02% rise is anything but impressive, but it gives the bulls another day to build their technical and psychological support.Source: Shutterstock Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) held the rally back more than any other name, falling more than 10% after Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) announced it was throwing in the towel in its acquisition effort. Teva Pharmaceutical (NYSE:TEVA) was problematic too, however, falling nearly 8% after Morgan Stanley downgraded the stock. Analyst David Risinger is worried about underestimated competition and litigation risks related to its opioid business.At the other end of the spectrum, Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) jumped more than 3% for a bevy of reasons, including winning two different "car of the year" awards.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Monthly Dividend Stocks to Buy to Pay the Bills As Tuesday's action gets going, however, it's the stock charts of Ford (NYSE:F), International Paper (NYSE:IP) and LyondellBasell Industries (NYSE:LYB) that merit the most attention. Here's why. International Paper (IP)The last time we looked at International Paper back in mid May, it was trapped in a downtrend largely guided by resistance at the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts. A near-term technical floor was holding it, but the sellers were persistently chipping away.They ultimately won the fight, dragging shares below that support area. The stock tried to bounce back, as it has since early 2018. As has also been the case since then, however, IP once again lost a fight when another ceiling stepped up to the plate. Things are apt to get worse before they get better. Click to Enlarge * The newest technical ceiling is the 50-day moving average line, plotted in purple. Rebound efforts repelled there in early June and again in early July. * This month's weakness has also been on above-average selling volume, suggesting there are more bears waiting in the wings. * The next major technical floor is around $39.50, marked in red. International Paper shares have found a floor there a few times since the beginning of 2016, and late last year in particular. LyondellBasell Industries (LYB)Two weeks ago, LyondellBasell Industries shares appeared to be on the mend. They had snapped back from a rough May, crawling back above the purple 50-day moving average line and then the gray 100-day average line, and then started to find support at that moving average. However, a push up and off the 100-day line to test the white 200-day moving average line ultimately proved disastrous. All it took was a kiss of the 200-day moving average to lead into a significant loss for that day.Before sliding back into trouble though, LYB stock found support at an established floor again, and appears to be positioning for another shot at clearing the 200-day moving average. It's less than an ideal effort though. Click to Enlarge * The support area in play now is once again the 50-day moving average line, bolstered by horizontal support around $83.60 where shares found a floor a few times in the first quarter of the year. * Although the bleeding stopped before too much damage was done, the recent setback has been on huge volume, and the two rebound days were on subpar volume. * If LyondellBasell can punch through the ceiling near $88, the next most meaningful level is around $96, marked in yellow, where LYB stock found support and resistance several times since 2017. Ford Motor Company (F)Ford has been a tough name to own for a long time. Even with the recent rebound effort, the stock remains down more than 40% from its 2014 peak price.This effort could be different though. While we've seen past recovery effort falter when bumping into an established technical ceiling, reinforcing that very ceiling, this advance is better grounded than most of the past ones have been. Click to Enlarge * The ceiling in question is the resistance line that tags all the key peaks going back to 2015, plotted in blue on the weekly chart. It has being tested again. * Since early June, F stock has found pretty persistent support at its purple 50-day moving average line. This support is highlighted on the daily chart. * Although it wouldn't readily appear this is the case on the daily chart, the weekly chart's Chaikin line -- by virtue of pointing upward again after crossing zero in April -- says there's consistent buying volume in place.As of this writing, James Brumley held a long position in Ford.

There will be a bundle of earnings reports that start to roll out this week. On Monday morning we had a few, but it's about to get busy in the second half of July. Given how much is set to come out over the next few weeks, it was a relatively quiet day on Wall Street Monday. We saw an 0.17% gain in the Nasdaq today, followed by slight gains for the S&P 500 and Dow Jones.Source: Shutterstock InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThat said, there's a lot individual news to dig through. Bitcoin, Libra and CryptoThe bitcoin market has been wildly volatile lately, hasn't it? Bitcoin prices ran from $5,500 at the start of May to more than $8,700 by June 1st. Just a few weeks later it was north of $13,000. It topped out around $13,600, before it promptly fell to just under $10,000. Crypto bulls said it was an opportunity. Bears argued it was a blowoff top and it was coming back down. Another run to $13,000 earlier this month was again met with sellers as bitcoin prices dropped back down to $10,000. * 7 Dependable Dividend Stocks to Buy I'll stop the onslaught of price history, but it's sort of necessary for an asset like bitcoin. Put simply, this thing is volatile. Perhaps we're entering a range-bound trade, between $10,000 and $13,000. At the very least, traders now have a few lines in the sand, where a move above resistance or below support could spell a further move in that direction. The advances in bitcoin have helped give a boost to Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) stock, even as it's drawn the ire of regulators for its Libra cryptocurrency. Congress has asked Facebook to hold off on Libra until it knows more. It's drawn comments from the president, while U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the Treasury has serious concerns over Libra.For its part, Facebook -- which will reportedly settle with the FTC for $5 billion -- said it will wait until it has regulatory support before launching. Heard at the Nasdaq TodayShares of Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) were on the move Monday, rising 2.7% and closing at $68.07. It will invest $5.1 billion in Galapagos (NASDAQ:GLPG), increasing its stake in the company from 12.2% to 22%. Galapagos will now see if shareholders approve an eventual stake increase to 29.9%. Given today's action, it's hard to see shareholders saying no, with GLPG stock rising more than 17% to new highs. Further, Gilead Sciences stock was upgraded to outperform at Wells Fargo. The analysts assigned an $88 price target, implying about 30% upside from current levels and signaling new 52-week highs should GILD stock get there. OK, so what's going on with Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) and Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC)? Broadcom was reportedly in talks to acquire SYMC. However, on Monday, shares of Symantec abruptly tumbled lower, falling over 10% on news that AVGO is no longer in talks to buy the company. However, the stock recovered off its initial lows -- and actually closed at session highs -- while AVGO stock rallied almost 3% on the news, before ending higher by just 1%. New reports say that Broadcom isn't walking away from the deal just yet. So what gives? This is just typical M&A drama. I don't know if Broadcom will pull the trigger for SYMC. Maybe the latter wanted even more money. Perhaps the terms weren't right. Either way, the market seems happy for AVGO to walk away, if that should be a sign of anything. Broadcom stock has been under pressure since the buyout news surfaced and rallied when it looked like the deal was off. Movers in the Nasdaq Today Click to EnlargeAlphabet's (NASDAQ:GOOGL, NASDAQ:GOOG) Google, as well as several social media sites have fallen under criticism that they display a political bias. Google's vice president of government affairs Karan Bhatia wrote an op-ed stating that the company does not have a bias and stated he will tell U.S. Senators that is the case as well. Social media is playing an enormous role in the distribution of political news, both real and fake. It's created a frenzy of both misinformation and information overload, drawing criticism from both political parties. No matter which side of the aisle readers stand on, they should be reading factually correct information, although tech companies haven't seemed to find a very good way to govern it thus far. Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) stock is hitting its highest levels since May, rising 3.4% on Monday on above-average volume. The stock is now running into prior support though, which acted as resistance a few months ago. The stock has to reclaim this area to really get the bullish train moving. Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) much-awaited Prime Day is finally here, with sales going strong on Monday and Tuesday. The e-commerce retailer will pull in billions in revenue from the event and is drawing in competition from seemingly every online retailer (seriously, have you checked your inbox lately?) * 5 EV Stocks to Buy for Big Gains Over the Next Decade Target (NYSE:TGT), Costco (NASDAQ:COST), Home Depot (NYSE:HD) -- three strong retailers by the way -- have been hitting it hard, as has Walmart (NYSE:WMT), Best Buy (NYSE:BBY) and others. With a strong labor market, I would expect Amazon's Prime Day numbers to be solid this year. Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

The benchmark S&P 500 index ended little changed on Monday after oscillating between positive and negative territory throughout the session after Citigroup Inc kicked off the earnings season with a mixed quarterly report. The bank reported a better-than-expected profit but also a decline in its net interest margin. The fall in net interest margin triggered a fall in shares of other banks on concerns that it would presage lower profits across the industry as interest rates have dropped.
Symantec stock plunged on a report that chipmaker Broadcom has broken off talks to acquire the cybersecurity software maker. Symantec had set a selling price of 28 per share, a report said.
Stocks stagnated on Monday, as investors gear up for the start of earnings throughout the week. Let's look at a few top stock trades to kick off the week. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 1: Symantec Click to EnlargeBroadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) is reportedly walking away from talks to buy Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC), causing the latter to drop by almost 12% on the day. On the plus side though, SYMC is rallying off its low. InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsShares are up off the lows and north of the 200-day and 50-day moving averages. For those that feel compelled to buy SYMC -- I am not one of them -- they may want to consider using a stop loss at Monday's lows. If that's too tight, then we at least need to see the stock hold these two key moving averages. See if it can climb over its 20-day moving average on the upside, or if it acts as resistance. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 2: Advanced Micro Devices Click to EnlargeAdvanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) surged to $34 and backed off last week. On Monday, it's right back to its bullish ways, pushing up to new highs. The stock is holding up over $34, while prior resistance at $33 is now proving to be support. As long as this one holds the 20-day, uptrend support and $33, investors can keep riding it higher. Below and AMD may need some time to digest the gains. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 3: Twitter Click to EnlargeLast week, shares of Twitter (NASDAQ:TWTR) broke out over downtrend resistance (blue line). It's now over its 20-day and 50-day moving average as well. As far as upside targets go, $40 would bring TWTR back near its May highs, while a run to $42 would fill the gap from last July. Shares need to hold above $37 to keep the setup intact. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 4: Netflix Click to EnlargeNetflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) remains range-bound, stuck between $340 and $385. If I were long NFLX, I would like to see the stock cooling off as it is ahead of its July 17th earnings report. Going in too hot could cause a selloff. On its post-earnings reaction, see if NFLX can breakout over $385 or hold $340 on a pullback. Sooner or later, we'll have some action. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow 5: Guardant Health Click to EnlargeGuardant Health (NASDAQ:GH) shares are moving well on Monday, up almost 10%. Shares are pushing through current resistance near $92.50 to $94. As long as it holds above this mark, a push to $100 and possibly the 52-week highs near $106.50 are in play. * 7 Dependable Dividend Stocks to Buy If prior resistance fails to hold as support, see that uptrend support near $85 holds.

The benchmark S&P 500 index struggled for direction in choppy trade on Monday as earnings season began in earnest with a mixed quarterly report from Citigroup Inc. Citigroup shares erased early losses in afternoon trading and were last up 0.3%. Shares of S&P 500 banks - including JPMorgan Chase & Co, Goldman Sachs Group Inc and Wells Fargo & Co, set to report results on Tuesday - fell 1.0% in the wake of Citigroup's results.
Symantec Corporation (NASDAQ: SYMC) shares took a beating on Monday after CNBC reported Symantec and Broadcom Inc (NASDAQ: AVGO) have abandoned merger talks. Ives was anticipating a deal announcement sometime this week and said Symantec may have simply demanded too high of a price. “With no other strategic or financial bidders that we see throughout the landscape we view this decision by Symantec and its Board as a major head scratcher given the myriad of challenges the company has on the horizon,” Ives wrote in a note.
Wall Street's three main indexes flitted between slight gains and losses on Monday, as declines in Boeing and bank stocks after Citigroup's quarterly report were countered by a rise in technology shares. The third-largest U.S. lender beat profit estimates but reported a decline in interest margins, with its shares marginally lower in volatile trading. The sequential squeeze on Citi's net interest margins by 5 basis points is a cause for worry for investors in other large banks, said Marty Mosby, director of bank and equity strategies at Vining Sparks in Memphis, Tennessee.
Symantec news for Monday has SYMC stock falling hard on a dead Broadcom deal.Sources close to the matter claim that Symantec (NASDAQ:SYMC) and Broadcom (NASDAQ:AVGO) were unable to reach an agreement in an acquisition deal. If these sources have it right, the main problem with the deal was one of pricing.The sources behind this Symantec news claim that the company wasn't willing to take anything less than $28 per share for SYMC stock. However, it looks like Broadcom was unwilling to pay that much for the company.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAccording to the unnamed sources, Broadcom was originally willing to pay as much as $28.25 per share for SYMC stock. The problem comes with what happened after it looked more into the company. This evaluation resulted in it lowering its offering to below $28 per share, which Symantec was unwilling to accept, reports CNBC. * 7 Dependable Dividend Stocks to Buy The initial report surrounding this Symantec news was from early this month. It claimed that Broadcom was going to be paying $15.00 billion to bring the company into its fold. Those same reports also claimed that the deal could have been announced before the July 4 weekend, but that a later date for the official announcement was more likely.All of this Symantec news today isn't helping out SYMC stock.
