The Market Week Ahead
Earnings reports are in full swing this week and month now. Will the earnings reports keep the stock market rally moving forward? The reality of the past is that even good earnings reports lag stock equity prices. So relying on earnings report to propel stock prices is not as good a indicator as you might think. Some of the earnings reports coming in this week are General Electric, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Google, and IBM. There’s another potentially big market moving event this week. It’s the Massachusetts Senator race on Tuesday. Depending upon how that goes, it could be a plus or negative for the Obama administration, their reforms, and the financial markets.

My Stock Pick this Week
Is a short sell on a big Indian Communications company. Long term I’m totally bullish on the India markets. Right now, it’s had a big upside run, and needs some cooling off in my opinion to see if the fundamentals can keep up with the current high valuations now and going forward. This company’s PE ratio is now about 65. India is a big grower for sure going forward, but I would looking to buy into this stock at lower prices indicated below in my short sell position take profit targets. The sell-off from the 20 area at the end of October 09 has more legs I think from a technical and fundamental point of view in the short to intermediate term. I would possibly start to get interested in going long on this company if the price was south of 13 with the 8 to 10 area possibly being very good prices to go long.
