Major Indices Edged Higher With Better Breadth and Leadership

The S&P 500 rose 0.3%, while the Dow added 59 points. The Nasdaq Composite gained 0.4% amid strength in mega-cap tech shares. The volume totals reported were mixed, lighter than the prior session on the NYSE and higher on the Nasdaq exchange. Breadth was positive as advancers led decliners by more than a 3-2 margin on the NYSE and 5-4 on the Nasdaq exchange. There were 13 high-ranked companies from the Leaders List that hit new 52-week highs and were listed on the BreakOuts Page, versus the total of 8 on the prior session. New 52-week lows totals easily outnumbered new 52-week highs on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. The market is in a confirmed uptrend (M criteria). Any sustainable rally requires a healthy crop of leading stocks hitting new highs.

PICTURED: The S&P 500 Index posted a small gain following 3 consecutive losses. It met resistance recently at its downward sloping 200-day moving average (DMA) line.

U.S. stocks finished higher on Wednesday, with the major averages finding their footing following a three-session decline.  Still, some cautiousness remained ahead of the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) Jackson Hole central bank forum later this week. Fed Chair Jerome Powell’s speech on Friday will be in the spotlight, with investors bracing for more hawkish remarks that would reiterate the need for additional rate hikes to fight inflation despite weakening economic data. Treasuries retreated, sending yields higher as market participants expect further monetary policy tightening. The yield on the 10-year note advanced five basis points (0.05%) to 3.11%, its highest level in two months.

On the data front, preliminary updates showed durable goods orders were unchanged in July, ending a four-month stretch of gains, while capital goods orders rose 0.4% over the period. Separately, pending home sales slipped 1% during the same month to the lowest level since the onset of the pandemic. In commodities, West Texas Intermediate crude gained 1.6% to $95.24/barrel following a larger-than-forecasted drawdown in weekly domestic stockpiles.

In earnings, Nordstrom Inc. (JWN -19.96%) gapped down after a sharp cut to its full-year guidance as the retailer grapples with elevated inventories and dwindling foot traffic. Elsewhere, Advance Auto Parts Inc. (AAP -9.62%) fell on disappointing results that included a reduction to its own outlook. In other corporate news, Peloton Interactive Inc. (PTON +20.36%) rose on plans to partner with Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN +0.13%) to sell its equipment and apparel on the e-commerce giant’s platform.

Failed to Rebound After 50-Day Moving Average Violation

Harmony Biosciences Hldg (HRMY -$0.34 or -0.72% to $46.89) closed near the low of the session with a small loss. Volume totals have cooled after damaging losses, meanwhile it has failed to rebound after violating its 50-day moving average (DMA) line and prior low ($48.85) triggering technical sell signals. It will be dropped from the Featured Stocks list tonight. A rebound above the 50 DMA line ($50.67) is needed for its to outlook improve. It met stubborn resistance in the $57 area.

HRMY stalled after highlighted in the 7/06/22 mid-day report (read here). It was last shown in this FSU section on 8/04/22 with detailed analysis and an annotated graph under the headline, "Churning Higher Volume While Perched Near High After Earnings News". 

Jun '22 quarterly earnings rose +54% on +45% sales revenues versus the year ago period and prior quarterly comparisons were strong, well above the +25% minimum earnings guideline (C criteria). It hails from the Medical-Biomed/Biotech industry group, currently ranked 3rd on the 197 Industry Groups list (L criteria). Its annual earnings history (A criteria) is limited. It has an 80 Earnings Per Share Rating. 

HRMY completed its $24 IPO on 8/19/20. Its small supply of only 23.7 million shares (S criteria) in the public float can contribute to greater price volatility in the event of institutional buying or selling. The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 208 in Sep '21 to 408 in Jun '22, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.2 is an unbiased indication its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days.
