Weekly Watchlist and Review 1/21/24

Weekly Watchlist and Review

Welcome back to another edition of our Weekend Watchlist and Review at ALERTSANDNEWS.COM! This week was a whirlwind of market excitement, SPY hit all time highs and with our alerts are killing it and delivering exceptional results. Let’s break down the standout moments and see how our calls fared.

The week kicked off with a bang on 1/16. PHUN stole the show with extraordinary volume, smashing all targets from a humble .13 to a soaring .35. ELAB followed suit, alerted at 2.40 and rocketing through 8 targets up to 4.37. MARK and DWAC joined the fray as well, sparked by PHUN‘s movement. MRSN, on the other hand, saw a stop hit on remaining shares, but not before we capitalized on Friday’s gains.  Risk management is key.

1/17 was a bit of a breather, with no alerts due to technical issues. Even the best traders need a pause now and then!

On 1/18, we were back in the game. SAVE‘s swing play initially hit a stop, but we didn’t lose heart. A fresh buy alert at 4.56 saw us holding some shares, with a top ease reaching an impressive 5.55. IRBT‘s swing from 29.69 eased over 31.05 before hitting a stop on remaining shares. PHUN, back for more, broke its trend with a buy at .239, hitting a top target of .28. BFRG‘s buy alert at 3.82 was another winner, hitting targets up to 4.10.

1/19 wrapped up the week with a bang. SAVE, our resilient swing from 4.56, was sold at a fantastic 6.90. IRBT‘s alert at 16.64 hit 2 targets, peaking at 17.55. CRGE, alerted at just .17, raced to a high of .25, and our ALT swing met a stop.

Let’s look at some oversold and/or highly shorted stocks. 

Grasping the dynamics of oversold and heavily shorted stocks is key for traders and investors looking to capitalize on emerging opportunities. Oversold stocks can be hidden gems, potentially undervalued due to market overreaction. On the other hand, stocks with high short interest are prime candidates for a short squeeze, a situation where a swift price surge happens as short sellers rush to close their positions. 

IRBT: IRBT’s stock took a hit recently after reports that the EU is going to block deal with Amazon, leading to a impressive drop. Now in oversold territory, the stock is attracting a lot of attention from short sellers who are betting on its continued decline. That means a potential rebound if the shorts start to cover. Keep it on the radar.

ALCE: This stock is one of the most oversold in the market and hasn’t seen a rebound in quite a while. Its Stoch RSI is hitting rock bottom, indicating a deep oversold condition. With a float just over 7 million, it’s time to watch ALCE closely for any signs of a rebound.

HOVR: Witnessing HOVR’s dramatic drop from 10.50 to 1.82, we see a clear example of a massive downturn. The stock is now oversold across all indicators, with a float of 11 million. After such a significant beat-down, it’s essential to keep an eye on the volume, as this could signal an impending rebound.

AXDX: This one has been enduring a rough patch, consistently taking hits all of last week. It’s a classic case of a stock being beaten down, now sitting in deeply oversold territory. What’s particularly noteworthy is the interesting spike in volume we saw on Friday. It’s a good time to start monitoring the volume ratios closely, as they might hint at a potential shift or rebound in AXDX’s near future.

Oversold beat up stocks to eye,

Coming up this week, we have several important economic data points on the calendar, but the spotlight is on the Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) data. Here’s a straightforward look at what’s ahead.

The week starts on Monday, Jan. 22, with the U.S. leading economic indicators for December. This data will provide some initial insight into the economic trends as we head into the new year.

On Wednesday, we’ll see the S&P flash U.S. services and manufacturing PMIs for January. These numbers will offer valuable information about the current state of the U.S. services and manufacturing sectors, leading up to the more significant data releases later in the week.

Thursday, Jan. 25, is packed with key reports including Q4 GDP, jobless claims, and durable goods orders. However, the main event is on Friday with the release of the PCE data. The Core PCE (year-over-year) for December, an inflation measure closely watched by the Federal Reserve, is forecasted at 3.0%, a slight decrease from the previous 3.2%. This data is crucial as it influences the Fed’s policy decisions.

We’ll also get insights into personal income and spending for December on Friday, alongside the PCE index. This combination of data will provide a clear picture of consumer spending habits and inflation trends, which are vital for understanding the overall economic landscape.

In essence, while the week is full of important economic reports, the PCE data on Friday is the key element to watch. It’s a significant indicator that could influence future economic policies and market directions. So, let’s stay tuned for these crucial updates
