    3 Big Stock Charts for Friday: Electronic Arts, Centurylink and Wynn Resorts

    The market didn't end yesterday's session at its high, but the 0.29% gain the S&P 500 was able to hang onto still translates into the third-straight winner. The Dow Jones Industrial Average logged its seventh consecutive win, with both indices still buoyed by renewed hopes that trade ties with China are on the verge of improving.Source: Shutterstock Overstock.com (NASDAQ:OSTK) led the charge with its 17% advance. Shares of the e-commerce platform continued the rally spurred by an upgrade from D.A. Davidson tendered earlier this week. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) offered up a meaningful helping hand too, gaining 1.5% because it's one of the more pronounced beneficiaries of a more accommodating trade environment.Holding the market back more than any other was Oracle (NYSE:ORCL), down 4.3% in response to last quarter's lackluster revenue growth, which was underscored by the announcement that Co-CEO Mark Hurd will be taking medical leave to attend to an unnamed health-related matter.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Big IPO Stocks From 2019 to Watch None of those names are particularly well-suited trading prospects headed into today's action, however. Instead, take a look at the stock charts of Electronic Arts (NASDAQ:EA), Centurylink (NYSE:CTL) and Wynn Resorts (NASDAQ:WYNN). Here's why. Centurylink (CTL)A little over a month ago, Centurylink was featured as a noteworthy name thanks to a repeated effort to break past a major technical ceiling. Although not yet over that hump, a string of higher lows and improving technical support suggested such a move was only a matter of time.That happened, in spades. In fact, the sheer speed of the breakout was enough to push CTL stock beyond another major technical barrier. Although now overextended and ripe for some profit-taking, the entire sequence of events says the path of least resistance is now upward. * Click to EnlargeThe ceiling at $12.43, plotted in blue on the daily chart, was the technical ceiling in question. Centurylink peaked there twice in July, but didn't flinch at that level earlier this week. * The strength of the move carried CTL stock past the 200-day moving average line as well, marked in white on both stock charts. The whole move also unfurled on above average volume. * Although ripe for a pushback, the fact that the 20-day moving average line is now above the purple 50-day line, and the fact that the 50-day line is above the 100-day moving average line is telling. Any stumble should be short-lived. Wynn Resorts (WYNN)After a rough 2018, a choppy 2019 is a relative win for Wynn Resorts. Technical support around $103, marked as a red dashed line on both stock charts, gets much of the credit for escaping would could have turned out to be a move to lower lows.There may still be trouble ahead, however, despite the bullishness we've seen so far this month. WYNN stock is already slowing as it nears what's known to be major resistance, and another clue says the damage has already been done. * 10 Battered Tech Stocks to Buy Now * Click to EnlargeThe resistance line in question is the convergence of the purple 50-day moving average line and the white 200-day moving average. Wynn Resorts shares only had to get near them on Thursday to start peeling back. * Simultaneously, the 50-day moving average line has now crossed back under the 200-day moving average. This so-called "death cross" is a hint that the bigger-picture undertow is bearish despite the recent gains. * Even if the rally isn't quelled here, there's another impending ceiling. The yellow dashed line that connects the key peaks going back to the early 2018 high could still stop the advance. Electronic Arts (EA)Finally, the implosion Electronic Arts shares suffered last year hasn't persisted into this year. In fact, EA stock looks like it's been trying to stage a full recovery of that meltdown.It hasn't done that yet, and may never actually do so. There are several major clues that suggest that rebound is more likely than not though. And, the chart has drawn some clear lines in the sand that will make clear if and when the stock moves into full-breakout mode. * Click to EnlargeThe most important line in the sand is the line that connects the lower highs seen since February's peak, plotted in yellow on both stock charts. This week's lull makes clear traders are hesitant to push past it. * Nevertheless, the convergence of all the key moving averages since June is bullish in and of itself. Better still, we're close to seeing a renewed bullish cross where the purple 50-day line moves above the 200-day moving average. * It's also not likely to be a mere coincidence that the area standing in the way of more upside lies right around a Fibonacci retracement line near $103. Moving above it should also be catalytic.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

    Phone Companies Strike Deal With States to Fight Robocalls

    (Bloomberg) -- AT&T Inc., Verizon Communications Inc. and 10 other large phone companies have struck an agreement with 51 attorneys general to enact technology to block robocalls before they reach consumers.The deal, announced Thursday, will help protect consumers from receiving illegal robocalls, and assist law enforcement in investigating and prosecuting bad actors, said North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein, who is leading the effort that includes all 50 states and the District of Columbia.Under the deal, the companies will launch the call-blocking technology at no cost to consumers, and make other free anti-robocall devices and apps available to subscribers. “By signing on to these principles, industry leaders are taking new steps to keep your phone from ringing with an unwanted call,” Stein said in a statement.The companies are under pressure to protect consumers against the unwanted calls, which are a top source of complaints with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission. Across the U.S. there were 48 billion robocalls last year, up from 31 billion in 2017, according to a tally by YouMail Inc., a developer of software that blocks the calls.In July, AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile US Inc. said they were making progress toward installing technology to authenticate calls so consumers would know if the call is coming from the person supposedly making it. The FCC has demanded the technology be in place by the end of the year.FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said the agreements with the states “align with the FCC’s own anti-robocalling and spoofing efforts,” including the agency’s caller authentication standards.“Few things can bring together policy leaders across the political spectrum like the fight against unwanted robocalls,” Pai said in a statement. “The FCC is committed to working together with Congress, state leaders, and our federal partners to put an end to unwanted robocalls.”Consumers are often duped into answering phone calls because they appear to be from a local number or business.“The bad actors running these deceptive operations will soon have one call left to make: to their lawyers,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said in the statement.Companies InvolvedThe other companies signing the agreement are T-Mobile, CenturyLink Inc., Comcast Corp., Sprint Corp., Bandwidth Inc., Charter Communications Inc., Consolidated Communications Holdings Inc., Frontier Communications Corp., U.S. Cellular Corp. and Windstream Holdings Inc.The FCC has demanded that carriers adopt the system to digitally validate phone calls passing through the complex web of networks. The agency also has said that providers may block calls, and cast a preliminary vote to require the digital authentication if carriers fail to install it by year’s end.Several of the top U.S. carriers issued statements in concert with the state attorneys general announcement. While the group on a whole backed the effort, there were few if any new, specific anti-spam call actions or timelines mentioned.“It’s imperative that we stand together on a common set of goals that include stopping callers from hiding their identities, working with other carriers on efforts to trace back illegal calls to the source, and keeping the originators from sending robocalls in the first place," Verizon said in a statement.“The fight against the scourge of illegal robocalls requires all hands on deck, and we welcome and appreciate the support of the state attorneys general,” AT&T said in a statement.(Updates with carriers and FCC comment beginning in seventh paragraph.)\--With assistance from Erik Larson and Scott Moritz.To contact the reporters on this story: Jonathan Reid in Washington at jreid98@bloomberg.net;Susan Decker in Washington at sdecker1@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jon Morgan at jmorgan97@bloomberg.net, ;Keith Perine at kperine2@bloomberg.net, Elizabeth WassermanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
