Market Rise Analysis
The stock market finally had a solid session, with solid price gains across the board. But it’s only one day. The best one-day gain ratio in stock market history is in bad markets.
The Nasdaq is now starting a new bullish attempt in the stock market, while Thursday was the second day for the Dow and the S&P 500. If the major indices maintain their recent lows, investors can look for Follow-up day To confirm the new high as soon as next week. In practice, it seems unlikely that there will be a follow-up day before the Fed’s two-day meeting ends next Wednesday.
At the moment, the market is still in a correction state.
Many of Thursday’s big winners were decimated by tech companies that have amassed profits that aren’t as bad as they are scary – like Facebook, PayPal (PYPL) And Service now (right Now) – but not close to buying opportunities. Merck and LLY stocks were welcome exceptions.
But the relief rallies could quickly fade, with futures contracts for Apple and Amazon plummeting overnight.
The power, steel and fertilizer combinations remain flexible, along with the defense stock. Pharmaceutical companies and health insurance companies look strong. Travel names are still interesting.
What are you doing now
Thursday’s market movement does not matter. What matters is what comes next. If the major indicators are heading towards new lows soon, then Thursday is just a peek into an ongoing correction or bear market. If the main indicators continue to rise and confirm a new high in the market, this is useful.
Investors with little or no exposure could buy MRK or Lilly shares on Thursday. Another option might be to buy an ETF in a broad market, in the hope of at least a short-term bounce. But if you’re going to make new purchases before the follow-up day, keep the exposure minimal, and be extra smart. Take partial profits quickly and be prepared to exit.
Being 100% cash back is still a sound strategy.
Your primary goal now is to be ready when the market turns. Build those watch lists. They will need to review as the season for recent market profits and losses lifts some names and attracts others.
And stay engaged. You don’t have to stare at your screens and watch the market nonstop, but keep tabs so you won’t be surprised.
