PICTURED: The Dow Jones  Industrial Average has been sputtering back below its 200-day moving average (DMA) line. 

U.S. stocks slumped on Tuesday as Wall Street assessed hawkish central bank commentary. Federal Reserve (Fed) Governor Lael Brainard expressed urgency around easing inflationary pressures, suggesting that officials could begin reducing the balance sheet rapidly as early as next month. The release of the Fed’s March meeting minutes tomorrow is expected to provide further details around the central bank’s plan to trim its bond holdings. 

Treasuries tumbled, with the yield on the two-year note jumping 12 basis points (0.12%) to 2.53%, its highest level since March 2019. The 10-year note yield spiked 15 basis points (0.15%) to 2.55%. On the data front, the Institute for Supply Management revealed that U.S. services sector growth accelerated in March, with the purchasing managers’ index (PMI) rising for the first time in four months. The prices paid component climbed to the highest on record. Separately, the U.S. trade deficit held at a record $89.2 billion in February.

Risk sentiment was also dented by news that the European Union is proposing new sanctions on Moscow. These penalties would include a ban on Russian coal and chemicals, though they hold off on prohibiting oil and gas imports. West Texas Intermediate crude slid 3% to $100.15/barrel amid a stronger U.S. dollar. Seven of 11 S&P 500 sectors ended in negative territory, with the more traditionally defensive groups bucking the downtrend.

50-Day Moving Average Violation Triggered Technical Sell Signal

Hawkins Inc (HWKN -$1.11 or -2.52% to $42.88) violated its 50-day moving average (DMA) line today triggering a technical sell signal as it suffered a 4th consecutive loss with above average volume after a noted "negative reversal" at its all-time high. Only a prompt rebound above the 50 DMA line would help its outlook improve.

HWKN was highlighted in yellow with pivot point cited based on its 1/04/22 high plus 10 cents in the 2/03/22 mid-day report (read here). It was last covered in greater detail on 3/15/22 with an annotated graph under the headline, "Hovering Near High After Rising From Prior Base".

Bullish action came after it reported Dec '21 quarterly earnings +26% on +31% sales revenues versus the year ago period. Three of the 4 latest quarterly comparisons showed earnings increases above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria) with a strong sales revenues growth rate. Annual earnings growth (A criteria) has been strong after a downturn in FY '18. It has an Earnings Per Share Rating of 91.

There are only 21.1 million shares outstanding (S criteria) which contribute to greater price volatility in the event of institutional buying or selling. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 326 in Mar '21 to 343 in Dec '21, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. The current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 0.9 is an unbiased indication its shares have been under distributional pressure over the past 50 days. The company hails from the CHEMICALS - Basic Chemicals industry group which is currently ranked 60th on the 187 Industry Groups list (L criteria). It has a Timeliness Rating of B and Sponsorship Rating of B.
