TODAY'S SPECIAL NOTICE

The market (M criteria) is in a correction. A caution flag has been raised by the technical damage in the major indices coupled with a shrinking list of stocks hitting new highs. Disciplined investors know to raise cash by selling weakening stocks on a case-by-case basis, and to protect that cash by avoiding any new buys until a new rally is confirmed with a follow-through day.


Market Indecisive as Major Averages Ended Mixed

The Dow ended 125 points lower to remain in bear market territory, while the Nasdaq Composite advanced 0.3%. The S&P 500 dipped 0.2%, notching a new low for 2022. The volume totals reported were lighter than the prior session on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. Advancers and decliners were evenly mixed on the NYSE and on the Nasdaq exchange. There was 1 high-ranked company from the Leaders List that hit a new 52-week high and was listed on the BreakOuts Page after zero on the two prior sessions. New 52-week lows totals again solidly outnumbered new 52-week highs on both the NYSE and the Nasdaq exchange. The market is now in a correction (M criteria).

PICTURED: The Nasdaq Composite Index is sputtering near the June low.

U.S. equities finished mixed Tuesday as investors digested a slew of economic data and the latest commentary from U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) officials. This morning, St. Louis Fed president James Bullard said inflation is a “serious problem” that the central bank must address, while Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari reiterated the need for convincing evidence of falling inflation before cutting rates. In contrast, Chicago Fed President Charles Evans signaled concern over the fast pace of rate hikes by the central bank.

On the data front, durable goods orders fell 0.2% in August, while capital goods orders climbed 1.3% for the month, its fastest pace since January. September’s Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index print climbed to 108.0 amid a resilient labor market and falling gasoline prices. Elsewhere, new home sales unexpectedly climbed 28.8% in August after falling 8.6% in July. The FHFA House Price Index declined 0.6% month-over-month in July, its first decline since March 2012. S&P CoreLogic Case-Schiller’s House Price Index climbed 15.77% year-over-year, easing slightly from June’s upwardly revised 18.08% print.

Longer-dated Treasuries weakened, with the yield on the benchmark 10-year note adding eight basis points (0.08%) to 3.98%, while the 30-year bond yield climbed 14 basis points (0.14%) to 3.86%. The two-year note yield was little changed at 4.31%. In commodities, West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude added 2.4% to $78.51/barrel amid tight supply conditions. A gauge of the U.S. dollar reversed losses to end 0.1% higher, hovering just below its 20-year high.

Found Support After Undercutting 50 DMA and Prior Low

Enphase Energy Inc (ENPH +$9.89 or +3.60% to $284.81) posted a gain as it found support near its 50-day moving average (DMA) line ($284.43) after briefly undercutting prior lows in the $271-272 area. More damaging losses would raise greater concerns. Fundamentals remain strong. Members have been repeatedly reminded, "The market is in a correction (M criteria) and disciplined investors know to avoid new buying efforts until a new rally confirmed with a follow-through day." 

ENPH was highlighted in yellow in the 7/28/22 mid-day report (read here). It was last shown with an annotated graph on 9/13/22 under the headline, "High-Ranked Solar Energy Firm Hovering Near All-Time High". It has an Earnings Per Share Rating of 98. The company has reported very strong sales revenues and earnings increases in quarterly comparisons through Jun '22 versus the year ago periods, above the +25% minimum guideline (C criteria). It has a strong annual earnings (A criteria) history since FY '18 after years of losses.

The company hails from the Energy-Solar group which is currently ranked 1st of the 197 Industry Groups (L criteria). The number of top-rated funds owning its shares rose from 1,068 in Dec '20 to 1,863 in Jun '22, a reassuring sign concerning the I criteria. Its current Up/Down Volume Ratio of 1.4 is an unbiased indication its shares have been under accumulation over the past 50 days.

Ended lower today for a 6th consecutive loss, testing its 200 DMA line ($198). It will be dropped from the Featured Stocks list tonight. Only a prompt rebound above the 50 DMA line would help its outlook improve.

Y - Its 50 DMA line ($26) defines important near-term support where a violation would raise concerns and trigger a technical sell signal. Volume totals have been cooling while still consolidating within striking distance of prior highs in the $30 area. Recently reported insider buying is a reassuring sign.The market is in a correction (M criteria) and disciplined investors know to avoid new buying efforts until a new rally confirmed with a follow-through day.
