Discover the Market’s Strongest Stocks

June 21, 2024

It started as a relatively quiet week as summer gets going and Wednesday was off. But the past two days have brought a good-sized rotation, with a lot of elevated, strong names deflating in a hurry even as the major indexes don’t move too much.

It started as a relatively quiet week as summer gets going and Wednesday was off. But the past two days have brought a good-sized rotation, with a lot of elevated, strong names deflating in a hurry even as the major indexes don’t move too much.

From a top-down perspective, not much has changed with the evidence—the intermediate-term trend for most stocks, sectors and indexes is neutral; essentially, the correction/consolidation that started in March is still in place for most of the market. Meanwhile, the big-cap indexes are in firm uptrends, creating a good-sized near-term divergence.

As we’ve written before, that divergence raises risk of a change in character, with some violent rotation or a general selloff—and it’s possible we’re starting to see that now among individual names, many of which have been hit very hard the past two days (Thursday and today).

Now, to be fair, some sort of air pocket was increasingly likely given how extended most strong stocks were, and at this point we haven’t seen a ton of abnormal action, with few 50-day line breaks of huge, outsized declines on big volume. So it’s certainly possible this is another shakeout that will lead to some support.

Right now, we’re leaving our Market Monitor at a level 7, but it’s really a stock-by-stock situation—trimming names that are weak, holding names that are retreating normally and even doing some buying near support (with stops, of course). If this rotation runs wild, we’ll change our tune, but we think individual stocks will tell the tale in the days ahead.


It hasn’t moved since we recommended it near the start of the month, but Freshpet (FRPT) remains cool, calm and collected as its 50-day line (now near 120) catches up. You could start a position here and consider adding on a thrust above 133—using a stop near 120, making for a good risk-reward situation.

Robinhood (HOOD) is very volatile, but it’s pulled back five straight days on very low trade and is finding some support at its 25-day line. We’re game for starting a position here with a stop near the 50-day line (call it 19.5 or so).


Partial Sells

None this week

Full Sells

Impinj (PI) – bad gap earlier this month and no real bounce
Itron (ITRI) – tight setup failed on big volume this week
PDD Holdings (PDD) – tripped stop; not awful, near prior lows, but just languishing since late May
