During Wednesday night's 'Lightning Round' segment of Mad Money, one caller asked about Veeva Systems : "I'd buy it right here..." was Jim Cramer's comment. In this daily bar chart of VEEV, below, we can see that prices have found a lot of buying support around the $140 level. The On-Balance-Volume (OBV) line shows a minor peak in late November and then a flat trend into the new year.
Traders went to bed last night expecting the markets to puke as tensions with Iran increased. Turns out, the markets actually ripped higher on Wednesday, hitting new highs. Let's look at a few top stock trades. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 1: Uber (UBER)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comUber (NYSE:UBER) continues to move well, as the stock hit its highest level since September. We have kept an eye on this one ever since it broke out over downtrend resistance (thick blue line).However, there was more happening than that. Shares had formed an uptrend support mark (purple line) from the November lows. Once Uber stock broke out over downtrend resistance, it should have caught investors' eyes. When it pulled back to uptrend support and held, though, that was the sure-fire signal that bulls were back in control.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsWhile Uber is now over its 20-day, 50-day and 100-day moving averages, shares are running into the 150-day moving average, as well as the 61.8% retracement. Should shares pull back, look for buyers to step in and buy the dip. Otherwise, Uber may need to rest for a bit longer. * 7 Stocks to Buy That Could Double for a Second-Consecutive Year That is, unless shares breakout over the 150-day moving average, putting $36 on the table. Let's wait and see with Uber stock. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 2: Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (SKT)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comTanger Factory Outlet Centers (NYSE:SKT) shares are erupting higher. At one point in the day, shares were up 14%. Better-than-expected comp-store sales numbers out of Macy's (NYSE:M) might be a catalyst, but other than that, there's not much of an explanation so far.In any regard, the stock took out a number of major marks in the move. First, SKT broke out over downtrend resistance (blue line), then it reclaimed channel support (purple line). It also reclaimed the 20-day, 50-day and 200-day moving averages.Shares did slow down once they approached $17. I don't know how this thing will trade in the coming days. However, if it continues higher, see that it clears $17, which will give it more momentum to the upside.On the downside, I'd love to see it hold up over the 200-day, but realistically, as long as it holds channel support, SKT is okay on the long side. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 3: Veeva Systems (VEEV)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comLet my start by saying that I love Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) from a business perspective. It's got a great product and great growth. That said, the charts look ugly.Veeva is setting up in a descending triangle pattern. That's where downtrend resistance (blue line) is squeezing shares lower against a static level of resistance (black line). In these setups, unbiased traders generally look for a breakdown through support.Of course, VEEV stock could breakout over downtrend resistance and cause the short setup to fail. But as of now, a break below $138 to $139 could trigger a potentially larger move lower.The trend has been working against VEEV since July, but the stock has done well longer term and the markets are near the highs. Maybe bulls can save Veeva in the short term. If not though, shorts may have their way first. Top Stock Trades for Tomorrow No. 4: Walgreens (WBA)Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comWalgreens Boots Alliance (NASDAQ:WBA) had been clawing its way out of some nasty price action, but bulls lost their footing on Wednesday after the company reported earnings.Shares of WBA plunged below uptrend support (blue line) and are hovering near $56 now. The truth is, Walgreens bulls lost control over the past two months, as shares have struggled to rebound after the drop from its November highs.In any regard, not all hope is lost. While momentum has been sapped, bulls will now want to keep the stock above the 200-day moving average. Above today's high, and perhaps the stock can make a rebound back toward its prior trend and the 20-day moving average.Below the 200-day puts the 78.6% retracement on the table. Below that and WBA will be in no man's land.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell.

U.S. stocks are not slowing down as 2020 nears. All three broad market indices once again reached new highs on Thursday. The S&P 500 has gained more than 29% so far this year. The NASDAQ Composite cleared 9,000 for the first time on Thursday.Source: Shutterstock With the geopolitical situation calm and impeachment apparently stalled out, there's seemingly little resistance ahead at the moment. That's not the case, however, for Friday's big stock charts. * 7 Stocks to Buy to Get 2020 Started the Right Way In fact, resistance is the theme of these big stock charts. One of these names already has faltered and is trying to rebound. The other two are looking to re-take past highs. But the common thread is that all three of these stocks are looking for a breakout in the midst of a broad market that continues to rise.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips Wynn Resorts (WYNN)Source: Provided by Finviz When we called out Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN) in 3 Big Stock Charts at the beginning of November, the stock looked set to stall out. That turned out to be the case, as shares sputtered for several weeks. But two pieces of positive news have changed the outlook -- and the WYNN stock chart: * Wynn shares first jumped on Dec. 12, as China announced plans to make Macau a key financial center. WYNN stock gained 9.5% on that news, as investors saw the news as driving demand for Wynn properties in that Chinese enclave. Six days later, the central government delivered more good news, increasing the daily limit on remittances from the mainland, and WYNN again gapped up. * On their own, neither of those developments seem to move the needle. But they add to the sense that Chinese leaders see Macau in an increasingly positive light amid protests in Hong Kong. Central government policies have impacted gaming revenue and stocks of casino operators in the region; anti-corruption measures interrupted growth earlier this decade, and WYNN still trades 40% below early 2014 highs. * The twin jumps allowed WYNN to break out of a usually bearish descending triangle. Moving averages have been easily cleared. And volume has been relatively solid during this rally. The question now is if WYNN can trade clear of $140, which acted as resistance in July. From there, $150 is in the next key level before Wynn stock reaches an 18-month high. * Click to Enlarge Source: Provided by Finviz For market bulls, a bet on a breakout seems wise. The resolution of the trade war, assuming it holds, obviously adds to the bullish sentiment toward the stock. Valuation is reasonable. As long as the external environment holds, WYNN has a real chance to break out. The same is true for rival Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), an intriguing choice for income investors bullish on the region. Veeva Systems (VEEV)Source: Provided by Finviz Veeva Systems (NYSE:VEEV) has been left out of the market's rally for over five months now. The stock has challenged $170 on a pair of occasions, and quickly receded each time. But the second of Friday's big stock charts shows a name back at support. At these levels, VEEV stock looks interesting -- even if it admittedly still looks expensive: * $140 has held as support on multiple occasions over the past few months, which suggests potential for a bounce. There are some technical concerns, however. There's a modest descending triangle pattern underway. And VEEV stock saw a so-called "death cross" earlier this month, with the 50-day moving average falling beneath the 200-day. * Still, there's an intriguing case here. Veeva has established a dominant market position in life sciences software. Growth has been torrid for years now. And while VEEV stock is expensive at 56x forward earnings, it's not terribly so in the context of high-growth software names. On an earnings basis, VEEV trades roughly in line with Salesforce (NYSE:CRM). Still-unprofitable SaaS (software-as-a-service) names like Okta (NASDAQ:OKTA) and Datadog (NASDAQ:DDOG) trade at a premium relative to revenue. * More broadly, valuation hasn't been much of an issue in the SaaS (software-as-a-service) space. It's not entirely clear why it has been for VEEV stock in the second half of 2019. It's not as if there has been a downside catalyst: Veeva delivered another beat-and-raise quarter late last month. Historically, that had been enough for upside. It may well be again in 2020. Zynga (ZNGA)Source: Provided by Finviz Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) stock touched a seven-year high this summer. But, since then, the third of our big stock charts shows clear resistance. The question is whether ZNGA finally can break through: * There's some reason to think that it can. An ascending triangle pattern usually leans bullish. The stock has cleared near-term moving averages and continues to grind higher. Resistance has been stout, but ZNGA stock looks like it's mounting a legitimate challenge. * As with VEEV, there's a relative valuation case for the stock as well. Zynga stock isn't necessarily cheap at 24x forward earnings, particularly given that analysts see flat bottom-line performance in 2020. But a large cash hoard helps the cause, and ZNGA stock certainly is cheap by tech standards. * Put another way, there simply aren't a lot of stocks that offer both value and the potential for growth. Zynga has both, given its $1.4 billion in cash targeted for acquisitions. The risk here is that the company's successful turnaround largely has run its course. Investors in this market may be willing to bet otherwise.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.
