On last night's "Mad Money," during the "Off The Charts" segment, Jim Cramer and colleague Dan Fitzpatrick went over the charts of Under Armour Inc. In this daily bar chart of UAA, below, we can see part of the base pattern and the upside break out around $25 earlier this month. The daily On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line shows a strong rise from December to new highs to confirm the price gains as it tells us that buyers have been more aggressive for months.
Other brands besides Under Armour to get a failing grade include competitors Adidas, Nike Inc. and Puma.

It was back and forth all day yesterday, and when all was said and done, the tug-of-war essentially ended in a tie. The S&P 500 lost 0.03% of its value on Tuesday, squelching the rally effort for a day, but at least keeping the market positioned for another try that doesn't have to start with a lot of groundwork.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) did more than its fair share of damage, falling 2.5% mostly following worries that its newest graphics cards may be priced too high. Sprint (NYSE:S) actually lost more ground though, off nearly 6% in response to news that several states were suing to block its intended merger with rival T-Mobile US (NASDAQ:TMUS).There were some big winners all the same though. Chief among them was the 6.7% gain metal company Vale (NYSE:VALE) logged, mostly as a bounce back from news that it would be spending nearly $2 billion to shutter nine dams in Brazil where the company has suffered from multiple fatal dam breaks.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Stocks to Buy for the Coming Recession None are particularly compelling prospects as we move into Wednesday's trading, however. Rather, pay close attention to the stock charts of Under Armour (NYSE:UA), General Electric (NYSE:GE) and Ventas (NYSE:VTR). Here's what's most noteworthy for each. Ventas (VTR)The last time we looked at Ventas back in November, it had just popped above a nagging resistance line, which put it en route to higher highs. And, that's what happened. VTR poked above resistance around $58.40, and by December, it was trading around $65.50. That's when VTR shares bumped into another set of resistance lines.Those ceilings are still a problem. But, they're also now just part of a much bigger consolidation effort that's about to come to an end. A huge converging wedge shape is nearing its point, and Ventas has already knocked one of them over. The last big one is in reach. Click to Enlarge * The final line in the sand is plotted in yellow on both stock charts. Although VTR shares poked above that ceiling once last month, it has otherwise been the big resistance level. * Zooming out to the daily chart you can see several different support and resistance lines, each of which puts the stock in a successively bullish position. Under Armour (UA)Under Armour has tried three times since April of last year to get back in a bullish groove. The first two times failed, and the third one is now underway. Given its history and the fact that the stock is once again overbought, odds are good this third time won't be the charm either. However, the fact that UA shares continue to take swings suggests it's only a matter of time before the effort finds success. Best of all, it's crystal clear where Under Armour shares will slide out of its rut and into a prolonged uptrend. * 10 Smart Dividend Stocks for the Rest of the Year Click to Enlarge * The big resistance line to watch is currently near $23.50, marked with a white dashed line on both stock charts. That ceiling tags all the major peaks since last year, including the one from Monday. * Zooming out to the weekly timeframe, we can see what happens when the stochastic lines move into overbought condition like we are now. The bulls may find more success at a slower pace, though they'll need to peel back from here either way to make that happen. * The weekly chart also clarifies how much room there is to recover the big selloff from 2016, once the effort gets moving at a sustainable pace. General Electric (GE)All of the rebound efforts General Electric shares have made since the beginning of the year have proven fruitless, making the current one suspect. Indeed, most would-be buyers have lost interest in GE, and aren't even aware that the once-struggling company's shares are even toying with a true rebound.Yet, now's precisely the time investors need to put General Electric back on their radars, and watchlists. Although not over the last of its key hurdles yet, it quietly moved above one big one, and is within sight of the final one. It's not the ideal effort thus far, but there's still a whole lot working in favor the recovery move. * It's evident on the daily chart, but only fully appreciable on the weekly chart … the moving average lines that have been diverging since the beginning of 2017 are converging again. It's a major clue of transition. * As of Tuesday, GE shares are back above the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts. * Although the weekly chart shows us the Chaikin line is back above zero, the daily chart makes it clear that there's not much volume behind the recovery effort so far. * The make-or-break level is right around $10.50, plotted in yellow on both stock charts, where the stock has peaked a couple of different times since March.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Lululemon (NASDAQ:LULU) reports earnings on Wednesday, June 12. LULU stock has developed a reputation for significant movements following earnings reports. Hence, the Vancouver-based apparel maker will probably face high expectations going into the report. Still, while I see LULU as a long-term winner, the report may not bring the positive catalyst that many expect.Source: Shutterstock Wall Street forecasts the company will earn 71 cents per share in its first quarter. If this holds, that will represent a 27% increase from the same quarter last year when LULU reported 55 cents per share in profit. Analysts also predict revenues of $757 million for the quarter. This would be a 16.2% increase from year-ago levels of $649.71 million.Given its earnings history, holders of LULU stock may expect a little more. LULU has beat earnings for the last eight quarters and sales forecasts in the previous 13 reports. Moreover, Wall Street predicts earnings growth of 20.6% for the current year and 17.9% the next.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAlso, for the last five quarters, the LULU stock price has moved by more than 10% (in one direction or the other) following the report. All of these factors should bring high expectations. * 10 Stocks to Buy That Could Be Takeover Targets The company's signature yoga pants have put the company on the map. However, it has quickly emerged as a full-fledged athletic brand. They will expand into athletic shoes as well as personal care products. Lululemon even has added a line of menswear. They have also begun to test a loyalty program that will compare to Amazon's (NASDAQ:AMZN) Prime membership. Report May Not Bolster LULU StockSince their specialty remains women's yoga pants, it remains unclear how successful these other lines will become. While the sale of menswear should increase sales, it remains unclear how much of a following a maker of women's yoga pants will attract in this market. However, this places the company in more direct competition with Nike (NYSE:NKE), Under Armour (NYSE:UA, NYSE:UAA) and Adidas (OTCMKTS:ADDYY).One other factor will heighten expectations further. In the previous quarter, Lululemon stock spiked higher by over 14% the day after its March earnings report. Many traders will inevitably buy LULU in hopes of a repeat performance. While that could happen, I would caution against buying for that reason. Following the December report, LULU stock fell by more than 13% despite an earnings beat.Moreover, LULU trades at a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of around 47.3. It also trades close to 31.2 times earnings on a forward basis. Given the expected profit growth rate and the likelihood of beating estimates, I do not see LULU as significantly overvalued. However, I believe the market has priced in the positives of this stock.I stated in a recent article that LULU stock would probably follow overall market trends. Since I reported that on April 10, LULU has fallen by slightly more than 1%. In comparison, the S&P 500 has fallen by a little more than 2% as of the time of this writing. Hence, that has largely held so far. Furthermore, trends do not appear favorable with the overall economy facing trade wars and slowing growth. While earnings could inspire a significant move in the stock, I believe it will continue to follow overall market trends closely. * 7 Reasons Stock Buybacks Should Be Illegal Final Thoughts on LULU StockGiven the history of LULU stock, the earnings report should spark a reaction, though not necessarily a positive one. Lululemon stock consistently beats estimates. The company has also gone into business lines that should place them into deeper competition with firms such as Nike. However, beating earnings estimates has not necessarily taken the stock higher. Further, investors should not assume that the success LULU enjoyed with women's yoga pants will carry over into other clothing or product lines.Finally, as for its current valuation, it will probably follow the market in the near term. Although Lululemon will probably continue its long-term growth, I would still encourage patience with LULU stock.As of this writing, Will Healy did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned stocks.

Shares of Nike (NYSE:NKE) have been under plenty of pressure over the past few weeks. Intensifying trade talks with China aren't helping, as Nike stock hits its lowest levels since January. Not all sports stocks are created equal though, as Under Armour (NYSE:UA, NYSE:UAA) continues to do just fine. Lululemon Athletica (NASDAQ:LULU) is doing okay, but not great, while Foot Locker (NYSE:FL) is tanking.Source: rodrigofranca via FlickrThis year's NBA Finals are interesting, given how many NBA pros have top shoe deals. Over the past few years, we've seen the Golden State Warriors face off with the Cleveland Cavaliers. That featured a number of Nike athletes, including Kevin Durant (the last two years), LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, among others. Under Armour, notably, had Stephen Curry on its side.But this year matchup between Golden State and the Toronto Raptors features Durant with Nike, Curry with Under Armour and Kawhi Leonard with New Balance. It's a diversified bunch, although it doesn't help Nike that its star (Durant) has been injured for the first two games.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Sports Stocks to WatchWith game three of the NBA Finals coming up on Wednesday, I want to see if Nike stock specifically can shake its recent stigma. Not many were expecting the Raptors to put up a big fight against Golden State. But through two games, the series is pretty tight so far.That's important, because the longer this series goes, the more exposure Nike can get. In June 2015, Nike signed an eight-year apparel deal with the NBA. Further, the apparel maker just dropped a re-release of its Air Jordan 4 shoe, in its Raptor colorway. The company is doing exactly what it should do to keep attention flowing to its brand. * 10 Heavily Shorted Stocks to Sell -- Because the Bears Are Right The question is, will it work?Based on the last few earnings reports, Nike is doing well. But trade-war worries continue to weigh on the stock. If we can get some more-than-expected Nike-specific focus during the Finals, that may help with short-term sentiment. That's assuming the stock market can find its footing -- no pun intended -- and slow its recent selloff.However, sports stocks and Nike stock specifically will likely come under pressure should trade-war talk intensify. A global slowdown doesn't do Nike any good, nor does a worsening trade war.So while investors will have one eye on the NBA Finals, they'll also be watching trade-war headlines to see how they impact sports stocks going forward. Trading Nike Stock Click to EnlargeBasketball is a huge driver for Nike and the league doesn't get any more attention than when it's playoffs time. So far though, that's not translating to a higher stock price. Nike stock is down 14% from its highs in mid-April.Shares were able to rally about 1% on Monday in the face of another broad-market decline. Perhaps it's a sign that the NBA Finals can give it a boost. It's also bouncing off that $77 area, a key fourth-quarter resistance level that, once breached, propelled NKE stock higher in January.It would be discouraging to see Nike lose this mark now. If it does, watch $75, the 61.8% retracement for the one-year range to give it another bounce. Below there and I wonder if investors can get lucky enough to nab a position in NKE for $70-ish. That would be a great long-term opportunity. * 7 Retail Stocks Winning in 2019 and Beyond On the upside, say current levels hold. We first need to see Nike stock recapture the 50% retracement at $78. From there, a rally back to the $80 to $81 area can ensue. Particularly if trade headlines relent for a few sessions and investors can focus on Nike's fundamentals and the Finals.However, $80 to $81 is a big level. There it has the 200-day moving average, channel resistance, the 38.2% retracement and the downtrending 20-day moving average.That's a mouthful of numbers, but for simplicity sake, just know it could easily act as resistance. At least on Nike stock's first test. Should it push through though, it could give shares -- and sports stocks in general -- a serious spark.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

The result was so unexpected the fight is actually getting more coverage after the fact than it did it before taking place, analysts note.
You don't have to be an athlete to recognize that Nike (NYSE:NKE) is one of America's top brands. Ordinarily, such a lofty distinction will put you in a great position in the markets. Unfortunately, two critical headwinds threaten to derail the party. NKE stock closed down almost 3% yesterday.Source: Kristian Olsen Via UnsplashFirst, we have competitive jitters clouding the overall athletic-apparel industry. Segment retailer Foot Locker (NYSE:FL), which up until mid-April had a solid showing in 2019 absorbed a nasty tumble. After releasing results for the first quarter that missed both earnings and revenue expectations, FL stock tanked 16%.Of course, Foot Locker is highly dependent on Nike, with the iconic shoemaker accounting for roughly two-thirds of sales. In turn, Nike is shifting toward online sales and direct retail channels, which obviously hurts FL stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHowever, the broader takeaway is that the American consumer is cutting back on discretionary spending. After all, Foot Locker had a strong showing for Q4, including much better-than-expected same-store sales. Therefore, the curbing of spending habits will invariably hit NKE stock.But the bigger headwind impacting Nike stock and the entire athletic-apparel segment is the bitter U.S.-China trade war. Nike's management team, along with their rival counterpart Under Armour (NYSE:UA, NYSE:UAA) and other shoe retailers, urged President Trump to back down. * 7 Utility Stocks to Trust for Retirement The reason of course is obvious. If you have a slowdown in sales at home, China's emergent economy and billion-plus consumer base represents an easy solution. But with Trump's fierce rhetoric causing an equally outraged response, the Chinese are in no mood to play ball.Although I like NKE stock based on its fiscal stability and segment domination, geopolitics must be respected. Protracted Trade Dispute Threatens Nike StockHere's the thing: if the world's top two economies can settle their differences now, we're back to the natural order. Nike stock jumps on powerful Chinese demand, and a stabilizing North American base.But what's the likelihood of that scenario? Given recent political and international headlines, I believe the current signs bode poorly for NKE stock.Over the past weekend, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe played the charm offensive toward President Trump. The reason? To get Trump to listen to reason regarding the White House's "shotgun" tariffs. Specifically, the President threatens to penalize both Japan and the European Union unless they renegotiate supposedly unfavorable trade deals.Japanese auto giant Toyota (NYSE:TM) responded incredulously, citing their massive investments toward American infrastructures and jobs. In my opinion, they're right to be outraged. A true capitalist businessman would understand that competition breeds superior offerings for consumers.Besides, Detroit has had at least four decades to improve their craft. It's not Toyota's fault that they stink.But the bigger takeaway as it relates to NKE stock is Trump's mentality. Apparently, he has zero qualms about hurting regions that are net accretive to U.S. economic interests. How much more will he aggressively attack China, which is very much our ideological adversary?Admittedly, it's not all bad news for Nike stock. The underlying company is gaining ground in China. Moreover, management views the Asian juggernaut as a largely untapped opportunity. Plus, the average Chinese consumer loves American brands.However, that demand faces threats because Nike doesn't have a monopoly in athletic fashion. Principal rival Adidas (OTCMKTS:ADDYY) has also gained significant momentum with Chinese millennials, particularly with its Yeezy brand. * 5 Safe Stocks to Buy This Summer Clearly, this reignited conflict is coming at the worst possible time for Nike stock. Technical Posture for NKE Stock also a Bad OmenI realize that even among InvestorPlace contributors, a debate rages between the technical and fundamental approaches. Granted, some of the assertions from technical analysts are a bit on the wonky side.But I also think real value exists when both the fundamentals and technicals confirm the same narrative. Fundamentally, the U.S. consumer market has notably weakened, sending FL stock into the dumpster. However, hybrid producer/retailers like NKE don't have a Chinese emergency valve anymore. That obviously hurts the case for Nike stock.And its technical chart gives you all the information you need to know. After hitting a peak this year in the second half of April, Nike stock is conspicuously pensive. It's roughly the same situation for American athletic-apparel makers.But the obvious winner in this mix is the decidedly not American Adidas. ADDYY shares have soared 38% year-to-date. Arguably, Adidas has better reach with Chinese consumers. On the other hand, Nike is losing its grip with both American and Chinese customers. Combined, these are good reasons to stay cautious on NKE stock.As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
