Airline Sector Stocks: The Death of a Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Daniel_Smolski

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnyone who has recently flown can probably attest to the feeling of uneasiness, loss of control and an overall uncomfortable feeling that grips one, as they step into an airport and submit themselves to the grueling process of check-in and boarding. The deregulation of the airline sector in the late 1970s has brought prices down so greatly, that it flying is now available to the masses. This has resulted in airports growing to mammoth-sized structures resembling small cities.

Healthcare Stocks ETF Looking Robust / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Many of the major components of the SPDR Select Healthcare ETF (AMEX: XLV) have been acting well technically and exhibiting patterns that argue for more upside directly. These include Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MKR), Pfizer (PFE) and Eli Lilly (LLY). Let's expect continued strength in the ETF that next confronts a key 8-week resistance line, now at 25.35/40. If hurdled that will trigger upside follow-through towards my optimal target zone of 27.20/60.

The ETF is now assaulting its declining 200 DMA at 37.80. Today's close will be very important for the SMN. Above 38.00, and let's expect upside continuation to 44.25/50 next.

Consumer Discretionary Spending Sector Leads Stock Market Tops and Bottoms / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe spending habits of the largest single element of the economy can provide important information as to the major peaks and troughs of the stock market. The consumer, which equals about 2/3rds of the economy, plays a vital role in the business cycle. The normal contraction and expansion of the economy often requires the consumer to shift their spending to reflect the current state of the economy. This shifting of spending habits between discretionary and staples provides valuable clues to the major peaks and lows of the stock market.

Protect Your Stocks Portfolio- Industries to Avoid, Industries to Buy / Companies / Sector Analysis

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile some of the recommendations in this commentary may seem like no-brainers, its real purpose is to illustrate how investment themes relate to the bigger picture.

U.S. Auto Industry: AVOID

Most of you are familiar with the history of the U.S. automotive industry. If you aren't, all you need to do is look at Detroit 's decline since the 1950s when it once stood as a great city with a strong economy. Once the world's envy, the Big Three became embattled in a struggle between labor unions and foreign imports in the 1980s.

Retail Stocks ETF Punches Through Resistance / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Mike_Paulenoff

This is what I wrote for subscribers yesterday about the Retail HLDRs ETF (AMEX: RTH), and there is no change in my outlook right now: The RTH appears to me to have ratcheted up into a higher trading plateau between 93.00 and 96.00 from 92.00 to 96.00, as the price structure pushes towards a confrontation with a cluster of resistance that is represented by its 9-month down trendline, the declining 200-day moving average, and a 5-month plateau of prior failed rally peaks at 96.00/65.

Return Persistence & Future Stock Performance: Are Momentum Strategies Effective? / InvestorEducation / Sector Analysis

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReturn persistence – the tendency for stocks to trend in the same direction – has been the topic of a number of academic studies. Many academics, and a number of portfolio managers, adhere to the theory that the market is reasonably efficient. As such, historical stock prices should reflect the sum of public knowledge and should have little predictive value of future stock price movements. Many value managers adhere to this theory. The fact that some studies show that stocks tend to trend on one direction is therefore puzzling to these researchers.

Homebuilding Stocks ETF Holds Support / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The Homebuilders Select SPDR (AMEX: XHB) managed to hold support in the 19.70 area again, creating a minor double-low" with Friday afternoon, and setting up a potentially strong upside acceleration if the price structure hurdles 20.85-.90 later this afternoon. My technical work argues in favor of such a constructive move, which projects the XHB to climb towards a test of its prior rally peak at 23.60 from 2/01. Only a decline that breaks and sustains beneath 19.70 will neutralize my current outlook.

Sector Rotation for Recession - Lessons from the Business Cycle / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn their never ending pursuit to uncover the next undervalued company, portfolio managers and investors often forget how equities, as a whole, fit into the stock market and business cycles. Though it is important to focus on the individual issues, it is never wise to forget about the surrounding environment and its positive or negative influences.

The basic pattern of the business or economic cycle has four steps. These steps, though never exactly unfold the same during each cycle, the basic structure remains firm and should be remembered.

Stock Market Top Identified by Business Cycle - Rotate Sectors for Growth / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rhythmic rise and fall of equity sectors throughout the business cycle has told economist, analysts and investors for decades the positions of the economic and stock market cycles. Certain equity sectors typically advance at different phases of the cycles which provide important clues and can dramatically assist in portfolio performance. For example, financial's normally lead the stock market and are one of the first to decline before the market top and one of the first to advance in the late bear phase. The transportation sector is also one of the strongest performing groups in the early bull market but usually rolls over at the top signaling the end of the bull market is near.
