Q’s Fight Back 

Traders are finding value in the FATMAAN names that have earnings support within the rising rate environment. THat said we have multiple cataysts for rates in the days ahead.  Retail sales today at 8.30.  20 year bond auction today at 1pm and 10yr TIPS tomorrow at 1pm. THat will be followed by the FOMC big reveal at 2pn followed by a Powell presser at 2.30 tomorrow.  Another rate spike would probably put the kibosh on the QQQ resurgence, especially on bubble stocks. Watch IWM closely as some are calling for a pull back.

Discussion Topics

  • Q’s make peace with higher rates and outperform
  • IWM is soggy following a downgrade by Mike Wilson at $MS
  • Eq. Weight S&P $RSP is outperforming cap weighted SPY
  • Bond Yield Catalysts: 20 yr auction today at 1pm; 10 yr TIPs tomorrow at 1pm. ; FOMC tomorrow beginning at 2pm followed by Presser
  • FATMAAN names stabilizing.  FB / AAPL / TSLA looking more constructive but still work to do.
  • Trade Ideas: ZBH / LVS / BABA

Order Flow Insights

Order flow trends flagged $FB / $FUBO / $SNOW as unusual bullish buys.   Note the PUT flow in IWM which is cautionary.

Trade Ideas

$ZBH – Zimmer Biomet

Med Tech name Zimmer has been consolidating for 3 months. A break above $165 should send this to $175 plus.

$LVS – Las Vegas Sands

The gaming segment has been strong. LVS has a very objective long set up as it consolidates in a bull flag. Take it long on a break above $66. I see T1 as $72 and T2 = $80

Some nice supporting order flow into LVS yesterday.

$BABA – Alibaba

A nice double bottom set up with bullish divergence set up. I like it long against $225.  Another perfectly valid approach would be to alarm $250 and wait for price to prove it can recapture all of the moving averages.  THen I’d take it long above $250 for a run to $270 plus. THe measured move target if the double bottom set up plays out is $310
