  • Down, But Not Broken 0 comments
    Jun 1, 2010 5:30 PM | about stocks: SMH, XRT, IYT, XLF, AFFY, MFB, ULTA

    Broad-based selling for the first day of June goes well with our Sell Bias.

    But if you read our weekly report, you know we're looking for a bounce.

    We'll stop looking for an immediate bounce when/if last week's low on the major indexes is taken out.

    Bounce or not, the one thing that's been clear to us is that it's not a favorable time to be buying breakout Growth Stocks.

    This week we have our eye on Ulta Salon (NASDAQ:ULTA) as a breakout candidate. They report earnings this week, which could give it a bump in either direction.

    We can't expect much given the collapses of other recent top-rated stocks Maidenform Brands (NYSE:MFB) and Affymax (AFFY.)

    In sector action, we're looking for rebounds from traditional trend leaders like the semiconductors (NYSEARCA:SMH), retail (NYSEARCA:XRT), financials (NYSEARCA:XLF) and transportation (NYSEARCA:IYT), which are showing not all is broken in the bull's path as they trade above their 40-week major averages.

    Disclosure: Short: CRK, SLW
