TODAY'S SPECIAL NOTICE

Damaging losses for the major averages recently signaled a market correction (M criteria). Greater caution is advised until strength returns. Disciplined investors know to avoid new buying efforts and to raise cash by selling faltering stocks on a case-by-case basis. 


Decisive Selling Continues to Sink All Major Market Indices

The S&P 500 fell 1.9%, dipping below its 200-day moving average, a closely watched technical level to a three-month low. The broad benchmark logged its worst weekly drawdown since March 2020 (-5.7%), as did the Nasdaq Composite, which shed 2.7% to a seven-month trough, ending a 7.6% weekly drop. The tech-heavy benchmark settled 14.2% below its most recent November 19 record and is positioned for its worst month since October 2008 (-12% month-to-date). The Dow lost 450 points, sliding 4.6% for the week--its worst showing since October 2020. Volume totals reported were inflated by options expirations as they spiked well above the prior session totals on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange, indicating an increase in distributional pressure or selling from the institutional crowd. Breadth was clearly negative as decliners led advancers by a 4-1 margin on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. There were no high-ranked companies from the Leaders List that hit new 52-week highs and were listed on the BreakOuts Page, versus the total of 5 on the prior session, down from a total of 41 last Friday. New 52-week lows totals expanded and outnumbered new 52-week highs by 65-1 on the NYSE and by 60-1 on the Nasdaq exchange. The market averages (M criteria) have seen damaging losses noted that signaled a more serious market correction. Greater caution is suggested until noted strength returns.

PICTURED: The Dow Jones Industrial Average slumped below its 200-day moving average (DMA) line with higher volume behind its 6th consecutive loss.

A rout in U.S. equities deepened on Friday as investors weighed corporate earnings results and remained jittery about valuations and the prospect of tighter monetary policy. Nine of 11 S&P 500 sectors closed in negative territory, with the more traditionally defensive Consumer Staples and Real Estate groups bucking the downtrend. Communication Services led the decline, with Netflix tumbling 21.8% after its current-quarter subscriber growth forecast fell well below analyst estimates. .

Treasuries caught a bid amid the perceived risk off tone, with the yield on the 10-year note down six basis points (0.06%) to 1.76%, declining modestly for the week. Still, the benchmark yield has jumped 25 basis points (0.25%) year-to-date as market participants have repositioned for a faster pace of monetary policy tightening as the Federal Reserve (Fed) has made it clear that combating elevated inflation is a top priority. Next week, the central bank’s two-day policy meeting will headline the proceedings. In commodities, West Texas Intermediate crude settled 1% lower at $84.68/barrel, still capping a fifth consecutive weekly advance, its longest winning streak since October.

Retail, Financial, Tech, and Commodity-Linked Groups Fell

The Retail Index ($RLX -3.47%) and Bank Index ($BKX -3.23%) both suffered losses of more than -3% which weighed on the major averages, meanwhile the Broker/Dealer Index ($XBD -1.76%) also fell. The Biotech Index ($BTK -1.04%), Semiconductor Index ($SOX -1.72%), and Networking Index ($NWX -2.67%) each lost ground. Commodity-linked groups also were weak as the Gold & Silver Index ($XAU -2.92%), Oil Services Index ($OSX -3.07%), and Integrated Oil Index ($XOI -2.32%) suffered unanimous losses. 
Chart courtesy of www.stockcharts.com


PICTURED: The Retail Index's ($RLX -3.47%) decisive slump below 200 DMA raised great concerns. Weakness in the retail index bodes poorly for the market outlook since 2/3 of the US economy is based on consumer spending.

Violated 200 DMA Line With 4th Consecutive Loss

Simply Good Foods Co (SMPL -$1.02 or -2.80% to $35.43) suffered a 4th consecutive loss today triggering a more worrisome technical sell signal while slumping below its 200 DMA line ($36.40) and undercutting the prior low ($35.60 on 12/02/21) which was noted as important near-term support. It will be dropped from the Featured Stocks list tonight. A rebound above the 50 DMA line ($38.82) is needed for its outlook to improve. 

Recently it reported Aug '21 quarterly earnings +45% on +17% sales revenues versus the year ago period, well above the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria). In 5 of the past 7 quarterly comparisons earnings were above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). Its annual earnings history (A criteria) has been strong. It currently has a 95 Earnings Per Share Rating. 

Its current Relative Strength Rating is 89, above the 80+ minimum guideline for buy candidates. SMPL completed a new Pubic Offering on 10/09/19. The company has a Timeliness Rating of A and Sponsorship Rating of C. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 357 in Dec '20 to 438 in Dec '21.  Its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.2 is an unbiased indication its shares have been under accumulation pressure over the past 50 days. 

SMPL was last shown in this FSU section on 12/22/21 with an annotated graph included under the headline, "Formed New 5-Week Base and Perched Near Pivot Point". It was first highlighted in yellow with pivot point cited based on its 9/09/19 high plus 10 cents in the 12/28/20 mid-day report (read here). Some leadership has been provided by other companies in the Food/Beverage Sector, however, the Food-Confectionery industry group has a Group Relative Strength Rating of 65 (B) which is a concern regarding the L criteria. There are only 5 companies listed in the group.

Y - Recently consolidating near its 50 DMA line ($11.47). Any damaging losses below the prior lows ($10.86) would raise more serious concerns and trigger a technical sell signal. A gain and solid close above the pivot point may help clinch a proper new (or add-on) technical buy signal. Reported Sep '21 quarterly earnings +100% on +30% sales revenues versus the year ago period.
