    Micron Stock Finally Gets a Break on an Earnings Report

    Micron (NYSE:MU) stock has often been the poster child for the technology trade for the last year or so. This is definitely most true for the chip sector -- when it moves, the rest follow.Source: Shutterstock Last year, when Wall Street sentiment was at its worst, investors sold MU stock down to where its trailing price to earnings ratio fell to 2x. That was ridiculously cheap. At the time, sellers had their reasons to do so. Meanwhile, I sold puts against their fears to generate income.But today, there is a longer-term opportunity for the stock into year-end.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsThis year, things are much different than in 2018. MU stock came into its earnings event up 26% year-to-date. It is even outperforming the VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (NYSEARCA:SMH) which is lagging 6 points behind. The clear champion still remains Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) especially after headlines sent it soaring this week. MU Stock After EarningsLast night, Micron report earnings and the stock is up over 6% this morning. Going into the event, investors were bracing for the worst. The industry has yet to shake the meme that they have serious inventory and pricing pressure. Maybe this negative notion will start dying this week.Management reported a decent quarter where they beat both the top and bottom lines. The expectations were low enough that they did not disappoint traders from what was already a bad setup. Investors ignored the big sequential drop in revenues. * 5 Cloud Stocks to Help Your Portfolio Fly The CEO recognized that the environment is indeed difficult but also reassured them that MU stock is executing well on plans and that things will start to improve in the second half of 2019, including the average selling prices of DRAM. This is the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel, and therein lies the opportunity.I trust that management knows its business best, and I bet that in the long term, there is more upside potential than downside risk. The globe is aggressively migrating toward everything being electronic, so the demand on technology products and services will continue to increase exponentially. MU and the rest of the gang will have enough business to feed their stock growth for years to come, starting this year. After all aren't we all agog over the advents of Artificial Intelligence, 5G and autonomous driving?For those who want to own MU for the long-term returns, this is as good a place to enter as any. The stock has momentum and the company just told us that things are going to improve into the year end.But even those who prefer to actively trade it for the shorter-term profits have an opportunity unfolding here.Going into the earnings, Micron stock's short-term range had tightened into a point. This energy needs to disperse, and that usually results in a big move. If the bulls can hold their greens this week then they could target $44 per share.This will be an area of resistance. However $44 is can also be the neckline for a second buy program that would target $52 per share. This would closed the open gap from last September. There will be more resistance zones along the way, like between $46 and $47 per share, but if the stock market in general continues higher, MU has a good chance at sustaining the rally.In short, the CEO told Wall Street that the DRAM crash is almost over and that the chip demand growth is going to improve. So even though Micron stock often falls out of favor, according to management, this time the upside potential is greater than the downside risk.Perhaps the bears got too comfortable shorting this cheap chip stock and will soon be caught in a squeeze. Cheap valuation and strong fundamentals will prevail in the long run.Nicolas Chahine is the managing director of SellSpreads.com.

    Nasdaq's 2% late-afternoon rally puts index on the brink of best day in about 6 weeks

    The Nasdaq Composite Index on Monday was poised to climb by the most since late January, as a broad rally took hold of the stock market to start the week, shaking off early bumps. The Nasdaq was up by about 2% with about a half-hour left in trading at 7,557, with that gain, if it holds, representing the best percentage rise for the technology-laden index since a 2.2% rally on Jan. 30, according to FactSet data. A popular exchange-traded fund used to bet on the tech sector, the Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF , was up 2.2%, also tracking its best daily climb since late January. More broadly, the S&P 500 index was up 1.4% at 2,781, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average was gaining 0.7% at 25,624. The day's advance for the blue-chip Dow comes even as one of its most influential constituents, Boeing Co. , fell 5.8%, cutting nearly 170-points from the price-weighted index, after a Boeing-made 737 Max 8 plane crashed on Sunday, resulting in 157 deaths.

    Industrial stocks have led the stock-market recovery, but their shine is fading

    There’s little denying that the industrials sector powered the stock market’s breathtaking recovery from its lows on Christmas Eve — the group has outpaced the second best performing sector, technology, by more than 3 percentage points. Measured by the Industrial Select Sector SPDR fund (XLI) , industrial stocks have risen 26.7% since the day before Christmas, versus a 23.3% rise for technology stocks, measured by the Technology Select Sector SPDR fund (XLK) and well ahead of the S&P 500 index’s (SPX) 18.8% gain during that time, according to FactSet. There may already be a leadership change underway, as industrial stocks have trailed technology stocks in February, rising 6.6% versus technology’s 7.2% rise.

    Technology ETFs: Why It’s Time to be Careful

    The Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLK) , the largest technology ETF by assets, entered Friday with a year-to-date gain of nearly 15%, having recouped much of its fourth-quarter loss while outpacing the S&P 500 along the way. “So-called high-beta stocks such as tech–those that are more volatile than the overall market–are likely to be vulnerable when the current rally starts to run out of steam later this year, Morgan Stanley analyst Michael Wilson said in a research note on Monday,” reports Evie Liu for MarketWatch. About two months ago, shares of Apple were battered as a result of weaker guidance as the tech giant projected lower revenue due to weaker demand for its iPhone.

    After undergoing a baptism by fire in the waning months of 2018, the technology sector has lost some of its luster in 2019. Although the Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSE: XLK) is up 12 percent year-to-date (outperforming the S&P 500 by two percentage points), it’s no longer the leading sector, lagging behind the Industrial Select Sector SPDR Fund (NYSE: XLI) — up almost 17 percent YTD — and the Energy Select Sector SPDR (NYSE: XLE) — up over 20 percent in that span. Precipitous drops in Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT) and Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL), two of XLK’s top holdings, erased more than $1 trillion in collective market value last quarter.
