XLY, XLI Chart
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:) has been steadily rising and may be on its way to around $112. The RSI is also nearing a potential break out, which could be a positive sign for the long-term uptrend in the stock.
Apple Inc (NASDAQ:) has risen above a critical level of resistance at $155, and should it manage to rise above $163; it has room to move up to $182.
Amazon.com Inc (NASDAQ:) is the largest stock in the consumer discretionary sector, and the big hurdle for Amazon doesn’t come until $1,770.
Netflix Inc (NASDAQ:) successfully refilled a gap at $335, and it held firm on Friday. If the stock falls below $335, it could drop to around $329. But it seems more likely the stock retest resistance at $355 and moves on to $380.
Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:) fell hard on Friday following some less than clear news about its fourth-quarter profit. But then again, it doesn’t take much for the short-sellers to get into motion. $300 has been a significant level in the past; I don’t see any reason the stock can’t continue to hold support at $300.
Square (NYSE:) broke out in a big way last week, and should it rise above $75, it could be on its way to $83.
Roku Inc (NASDAQ:) still can’t get over $43, and I continue to believe the stock is heading lower to $34.
Micron Technology Inc (NASDAQ:) is once again trying to break out, and jump above $37, pushes the stock up to $40.25.
Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ:) could be on its way towards $440.
