We often see insiders buying up shares in companies that perform well over the long term. The flip side of that is that there are more than a few examples of insiders dumping stock prior to a period of weak performance. So before you...
CF Industries Holdings, Inc. today announced that it will report its first quarter 2019 results after the market close on Wednesday, May 1, 2019. The company plans to host a conference call to discuss these results at 9:00 a.m.
Given its modestly poor performance on Tuesday and Wednesday, the odds were against a gain on Thursday headed into the long weekend. But the S&P 500 defied the odds, clawing its way back out of the red to leave behind a 0.16% gain. It's clear, however, the weight of the gains since late December aren't going to be easy to shrug off.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Investors can thank General Electric (NYSE:GE) for doing a great deal of the heavy lifting. Shares of the struggling industrial giant were up 2.5% after Melius Research analyst Scott Davis claimed a top industrial investor is stepping into the beaten-down stock.At the other end of the spectrum, Pfizer (NYSE:PFE) fell 1.5%, extending a sector-wide selloff that largely stems from an uncertain future for healthcare. Most Democratic Presidential candidates are developing a platform on government-managed healthcare, while Republicans aren't offering much in the way of alternatives.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 6 Cheap Stocks That Cost Less Than $10 Neither of those names is a particularly great trading prospect as the new trading week kicks off though. Rather, take a look at the stock charts of CF Industries Holdings (NYSE:CF), Caterpillar (NYSE:CAT) and Lamb Weston Holdings (NYSE:LW) for your best bets. Caterpillar (CAT)Caterpillar shares have been losing ground since early 2018. Although 2017 was almost heroic, fear of tariffs followed by the actual implementation of those tariffs took a sizeable toll on CAT stock.Things have changed since October's low though. We've seen a string of higher lows, and as of the end of last week, higher highs. There's just one more hurdle to clear before Caterpillar stock is in full-blown breakout mode. Click to Enlarge * The breakout trigger would be a thrust above the upper edge of the falling trading range plotted in white on the weekly chart. One or two more good days could get the stock past that ceiling. * In the meantime, CAT stock has cleared a horizontal ceiling at $142.83, plotted with a yellow dashed line on both stock charts. Shares hit highs there a couple of times before pushing above that resistance last week. * If the breakout takes hold, the most plausible upside target is around $159, where CAT peaked several times in the middle of last year. That level is marked with a dashed blue line on the daily chart. Lamb Weston Holdings (LW)You may be more familiar with Lamb Weston Holdings than you realize. The company supplies potato products to the restaurant industry. Restaurants sell 80 million servings of Lamb Weston-supplied fries every single day. It may also be unfamiliar simply because it has only been a publicly traded entity since late 2016, when it was spun off by ConAgra Foods (NYSE:CAG).LW stock had a pretty good post-spinoff run too. As of last week though, it's pretty clear the post-spinoff euphoria has run its course. LW stock is one bad day away from a major meltdown. * 10 Best Stocks to Buy and Hold Forever Click to Enlarge * Thursday's low lines up with the last two major lows, plotted with a yellow dashed line on both stock charts. * Although the intermediate-term support is still intact, the horizontal support at $68.00, where Lamb Weston stock found a floor a few times in February and March, failed as a floor on Thursday. * It's subtle and not yet convincing, but Friday's bearish volume in LW stock was above average. It's a hint that there may be a lot more nervous investors waiting in the wings to dump their stake should things get any worse. CF Industries Holdings (CF)A month ago, CF stock was close to a breaking point. It was moving back toward a low around $89 for a second time after falling to that level in early March, with some momentum behind the effort.The stock never slipped over the edge though. Rather, it pushed up and off that floor at $89 to make a double bottom. Now shares are within striking distance of a couple of different technical ceilings that could prove quite catalytic. Click to Enlarge * The first of those technical ceilings is $45.40, marked with a red dashed line. That's where shares peaked in February, and so far where they've peaked in April. * Bolstering the bullish case is the amount of buying volume that materialized the last two days of last week. There are willing buyers out there. * Further bolstering the bullish case is the way CF stock found support at a well-established support line plotted in purple on the weekly chart. It has tagged all the key lows going back to late 2016. * At this point, the make-or-break line is the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

It could have been worse. Though the S&P 500 ended Monday's trade down 0.39%, at one point in the session the index was off by as much as 1.3% on renewed concerns about the ongoing tariff war with China.Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM) did the most damage, falling 3.7% after offering disappointing guidance for the year now underway. Eli Lilly (NYSE:LLY) chipped in too, however, losing 1.1% of its value on news that it was cutting the price of its insulin injection, Humalog, by half as a measure to quell criticism of its exorbitant price.Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) was up 3.1% yesterday, though for no reason in particular. Investors are broadly beginning to see a light at the end of the company's tunnel, rekindling the bullishness that took shape following last month's earnings news.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHeaded into Tuesday's trading, the stock charts of CF Industries Holdings (NYSE:CF), D. R. Horton (NYSE:DHI) and PPL (NYSE:PPL) are of the most interest as trading prospects. Here's why. D. R. Horton (DHI)A couple of weeks ago, shares of homebuilder D. R. Horton were featured as a budding breakout candidate. Along with rival homebuilding stocks like PulteGroup (NYSE:PHM), DHI was wiggling out of a downtrend and into an uptrend. There was just a little more work to do. * 7 March Madness Stocks to Consider for the Big Dance There still is. D. R. Horton peeled back shortly after that look. But, between Friday's intraday turnaround and Monday's gain, DHI is back above a key technical line, and the bigger-picture uptrend remains intact. Click to Enlarge • Thanks to the support offered by the purple 50-day moving average line on Friday (highlighted in blue), D. R. Horton has bounced its way back above the white 200-day moving average line.• Zooming out to the weekly chart we can see this rally was ultimately started by a tough horizontal floor around $32.40, plotted with a yellow line.• Even if DHI continues to rally, the daily chart's showing a technical ceiling currently around $42, plotted with a blue dashed line. That resistance has capped all the runup efforts since November. PPL (PPL)PPL has been another name we've had our eye on for a while, as a breakout candidate. With our last look from mid-November, shares of the utility name had punched through a technical ceiling at $31.16. It all came unraveled starting the very next day. For reasons that had little to do with PPL itself, the stock fell to nearly $27 by the middle of December.That loss has been wiped away in the meantime. As of yesterday's close, PPL is testing that November high. And this time, it's got an even better start. Click to Enlarge • The ceiling in question is $32.50, plotted in red on both stock charts.• While it didn't happen or held in December, in February the small dip found a floor at the gray 100-day moving average line (highlighted) to renew the rebound effort.• If the $32.50 area fails to hold back the rally, the next upside target is near $40, where the stock reached highs in 2017. CF Industries (CF)Finally, shares of CF Industries have been largely left out of the market's rally since late December, but they haven't lost ground. Slowly but surely though, CF has worked its way to the brink of a fairly serious breakdown.The good news is, the make-or-break level is quite clear. We're at it as of Monday's close. Click to Enlarge • That line in the sand is at $41.52, plotted with a yellow dashed line on both stocks charts. That level tags all the key lows going back to December, including yesterday's low.• The tide is already bearish, however. The daily volume bars on bearish das have been notably higher for the past month, and the daily chart's accumulation-distribution line as well as the weekly chart's Chaikin line are both back in decided downtrends.• Finally, though subtle (almost to the point of dismissible), the current bearish leg took shape after CF bumped into the gray 100-day and white 200-day moving average lines a couple of weeks ago … the same day the former crossed below the latter. The deck is now completely stacked against a recovery.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
