Joining Yahoo Finance's Jen Rogers and Myles Udland is Jared Blikre to break down the week's market action in the S&P 500, its 11 sectors (where tech is leading the year again), as well as the weekly winners in the Nasdaq 100 — all with the help of our new YFi Interactive touch screen.
Under the definitive stock purchase agreement, O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) will acquire all the outstanding shares of Mayasa and affiliated entities.
O’Reilly Automotive, Inc. (the “Company” or “O’Reilly”) (ORLY), a leading retailer in the automotive aftermarket industry, announced that it has entered into a definitive stock purchase agreement with the shareholders of Mayoreo de Autopartes y Aceites, S.A. de C.V. (“Mayasa”), headquartered in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, under which O’Reilly will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Mayasa and affiliated entities. The stock purchase is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year, subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.
Hope for a de-escalation of a trade war turned what would have otherwise been an off day into a sizeable win. On Tuesday, the S&P 500 finished up to the tune of 1.48%, pulling most stocks higher with it.Source: Shutterstock Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) did a lot of the heavy lifting, though General Electric (NYSE:GE) wasn't far behind. The iPhone maker advanced 4.2%, as it's one of the key beneficiaries of a cooling tariff war. GE stock rose 3.5% for the same basic reason, though the CEO's $2.8 million investment in shares of his company fanned the bullish flames.Although few and far between, there were some losers. Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) was one of them. Although it too benefits from eased trade tensions, traders are still struggling to tack on even more gains after this year's big rally.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 15 Growth Stocks to Buy for the Long Haul Headed into the midpoint of the week, it's Seagate Technology (NASDAQ:STX), McKesson (NYSE:MCK) and O'Reilly Automotive (NASDAQ:ORLY) that merit a closer inspection as trading prospects. Here's a detailed look at their stock charts. McKesson (MCK)With nothing more than a quick glance it would be easy to say McKesson is simply a volatile mess, and chalk up the bullishness seen since April to mere chance.The move, however, is better organized and more meaningful than it may seem on the surface. Although certainly still choppy from one day to the next, MCK stock has crossed important lines, and found support at other lines that had to provide support in order to keep the rally in motion. Then there's the kicker. * Click to EnlargeThanks to July's strength, McKesson has cleared the short-term technical ceiling plotted in yellow on the daily chart, and also the weekly chart's technical resistance that extends back to 2015's peak. * While still erratic, the daily volatility has been net-bullish. The purple 50-day average moved above the 200-day moving average line (marked in white on both stock charts) in June and never looked back. * The bears attempted to up-end the advance last week, but the 50-day moving average turned into a floor to renew what has now become an entrenched advance. O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY)O'Reilly Automotive shares, unlike most other stocks at the time, ended last year on a bullish foot and continued on this year. It has more to do with the industry itself than ORLY in particular, as rival name Advance Auto Parts (NYSE:AAP) dished out comparable returns. But, the underlying reasons don't change the effect.In that same vein though, recent weakness from AAP is slowly becoming clear in ORLY as well. Although O'Reilly Automotive shares have not yet reached their topping point, they're inching closer every day. One more bad day could do the trick. * 7 Stocks the Insiders Are Buying on Sale * Click to EnlargeThe tipping point, so to speak, as the support level that connects all the key lows going back to October, is plotted in yellow on both stock charts. * Another key floor now under attack is the 200-day moving average line, marked in white on both stock charts. It's being tested again this week, and that's happening on a regular basis. * Although not yet past the point of no return, notice that July's high is below April's. That's the first lower high seen in some time. Also note the fact that the most recent bearish MACD cross occurred at a lower level. Seagate Technology (STX)March's breakout effort from Seagate Technology ultimately failed. Although the move above the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts, was a bullish clue, the effort was halted at what has since become a well-established falling resistance line. It's plotted in yellow on both stock charts.The prospect of a recovery breakout has never really withered though. In fact, we're closer now to one than we've been in a long while. That's because a couple of key components to a full-blown bullish move weren't in place then, but are now. * Click to EnlargeChief among those components is the fact that the purple 50-day moving average line is now above the white 200-day average. Moreover, both the 50-day and the 200-day average lines are sloped upward. * It's only evident on the weekly chart, but STX stock has been logging higher lows since its early 2016 low. Buying on the dips has proven to be a fruitful strategy. * Although not seen here, shares of rival memory chip company Micron (NASDAQ:MU) are also performing well again, in step with a rebound in memory component prices. Herd-driven moves tend to last.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

It's only natural that many investors, especially those who are new to the game, prefer to buy shares in 'sexy' stocks...
For third-quarter 2019, O'Reilly (ORLY) projects earnings in the range of $4.73-$4.83 per share. Further, the company expects 3-5% rise in consolidated comparable store sales.
O'Reilly earnings and sales missed, with the auto parts retailer also giving weak guidance. O'Reilly stock fell late, pulling back from near a buy point.
Second quarter comparable store sales increase of 3.4%36 basis point increase in second quarter gross margin to 52.8%4% increase in second quarter operating profit dollars.
Rise in prices due to increased complexity of auto-parts has compelled DIY customers to change spending habits, which is likely to hurt O'Reilly's (ORLY) Q2 Earnings.
To put it bluntly, retail is a bloodbath these days. Consumers have gotten fickler than ever, which has created an interesting environment for many retail stocks to operate in.Today, people want their goods when they want it and how they want it. This means that both physical stores and digital commerce need to be blended. Two-day and even one-day shipping is now the norm, while online ordering and pick-up have quickly become a default option for many consumers.Needless to say, a lot of retail stocks have buckled under this pressure. Store closures and bankruptcies dot the sector.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsHowever, not all retail stocks are being tossed to the wolves. In fact, several are getting it right. That includes the right tech and consumer experiences to compete in the new omnichannel paradigm. These winners are proving that investors don't have to ignore the sector completely, but they do have to be selective. Choose wrong and you could be staring at plenty of empty storefronts. * 7 Stocks Top Investors Are Buying Now Which retailers are getting the job done in omnichannel? Here are five retail chains that will be winners in the years ahead. Williams-Sonoma (WSM)When being a "foodie" and collecting kitchen gadgets weren't as popular as they are today, Williams-Sonoma (NYSE:WSM) was really the only game in town for it. If you wanted to find new kitchen appliances, high-end imported foods, and other now-common kitchen items, you had to go to WSM. Because of this, the retailer has built up a fanatical fanbase of customers.The best part is this fanbase tends to be older and more affluent than typical bargain shoppers. After all, if you're willing to drop nearly $12,000 on an espresso machine, you have some cash to spend. And they tend to transfer their love of the brand down to their children when they finally become adults.The same could be said for its other major brands like Pottery Barn and West Elm for home furnishings. WSM has managed to create a cohort of wealthy customers that are willing to shop there first before anywhere else. This gives it a monster edge over many other retail stocks.Williams-Sonoma has been an earnings machine -- especially in the world of omnichannel. It has been able to get people into its stores for demos and product help while making plenty of revenues online. Sales have grown by an annual rate of 6% per year since 2010, while earnings have grown 11% per year over the same time. And it has been sharing the wealth via a growing dividend. Today, WSM yields almost 3%.All in all, WSM stock has all the right ingredients to keep winning in the new retailing world. Five Below (FIVE)Dollar stores have been incredibly resilient in the face of rising online and omnichannel shopping. But dollar-store Five Below (NASDAQ:FIVE) isn't like your local Dollar General (NYSE:DG). The product is very different. That is, it's geared towards kids, tweens, and even college students. You're looking at toys, games, cheap tech gear and beauty items. Moreover, much of the product mix shifts as the season's change -- which adds a "treasure hunt" aspect to their locations and necessitates repeat customers.And customers are coming back in a big way.Because of its operating model and low-cost of goods, the funky dollar store has managed to turn sales into actual profits. New stores have an average payback time of just one year, while profits have compounded by over 32% per year since its IPO. That's torrid growth considering this is a budget retailer. And FIVE has managed to do all of this without debt. * 9 Retail Stocks Goldman Sachs Says Are Ready to Rip Given its focus on tweens as well as on-trend goods, the retail stock has a unique niche that can't be tackled by many other rivals. For investors, this position offers plenty of opportunities to grow into the future. Kroger (KR)The grocery business is pretty cutthroat to begin with. Margins tend to be thin, consumers fickle. For many retail stocks that have operated in the sector, bankruptcy has been a forgone conclusion. This is especially true now that e-commerce giants like Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) have entered the market.But Kroger (NYSE:KR) seems to be getting it right, albeit slowly. The firm has been able to leverage its scale as the nation's largest supermarket chain to make a serious go at the new world of omnichannel.This includes unveiling new order ahead options for its products, apps, a big partnership with Instacart, and other tech-oriented consumer experience products. Today, KR has more than 1,685 stores that offer order pickup locations as well as over 2,125 delivery locations for its groceries. That covers about 93% of its customers.These efforts have helped grow digital sales by more than 42% during the first quarter of this year. Meanwhile, Kroger has been copying Amazon and Walmart's (NYSE:WMT) playbooks and moving into so-called alternative revenue streams. This includes media and advertising, customer data, and other real estate investments. KR is on track to start producing some significant revenues this year. So far it crushed its latest earnings estimates and was able to increase its dividend by a whopping 14%.Though KR's moves are working at a slow pace, the grocery giant could be an interesting value among retail stocks. KR is getting it right, it's just taking time. At least you get paid a hefty dividend while you wait. Home Depot (HD)What housing crisis?That's the mantra for home improvement giant Home Depot (NYSE:HD). The retailer continues to see rising sales and demand for various home improvement products and services. And the reason is simple: HD has started to seriously court the next generation of homeowners.Thanks to generally low interest rates and looser lending standards, Gen X and Millennials are finally able to buy homes. But they are not buying move-in ready McMansions. They're buying fixer-uppers that require plenty of sweat equity, which means plenty of trips to Home Depot. Moreover, HD has courted these customers with new omnichannel operations, mobile apps, and customer service experiences.It's working in a big way. Last year, HD pulled in record profits and the streak is continuing this year. Sales for the first quarter of this year increased 5.7% to clock in at $26.4 billion. Earnings per share managed to jump by over 9%. Its continued moves into omnichannel have certainly helped on this front.With the continued revenue and EPS gains, HD has rewarded shareholders in a big way. Thanks to improved results, Home Depot unveiled a new monster $15 billion buyback program and increased its dividend by an insane 32%. And with interest rates set to drop further, more people could be able to buy a home. * 10 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for the Rest of 2019 and Beyond All in all, HD's outlook could be one of the rosiest of all retail stocks. O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY)Grease monkeys and gearheads could give a flip about online and e-commerce sales. Both classic and modern cars require plenty of knowledge and specialized parts, many of which can only be found at your local auto parts store. Moreover, several maintenance issues require special disposal of waste. You can't just chuck old motor oil down the drain. That necessitates a trip to a physical location.All of this could help explain why O'Reilly Automotive (NASDAQ:ORLY) crushed the market last year.The retail stock has seen plenty of steady single and low double-digit earnings increases over the last few years as the economy continues to expand and miles driven increase. As long as the economy continues to clip at a steady pace, ORLY should be able to get the growth going.Another reason for its success is its management team. The stock is packed with insiders and family ownership. Because of this high ownership, management often takes more long-term views of investments and decisions. Yes, it's about improving quarter to quarter, but its more about building the company over the decades. And ORLY has done just that. During the recession, a decision to expand made the firm the giant it is today.With new moves to court professional garages and a $1 billion buyback now under its belt, ORLY continues to make the right moves in the new retail environment.At the time of writing, Aaron Levitt had a long position in AMZN.
