S&P 500 (SPY)

The S&P 500 futures are falling some this morning, and the good news is that the index is testing the break out from yesterday.  It is good that we get this test done as soon as possible. A successful retest will allow us to continue to move higher.  Support will come around 3028; resistance is now around 3,040.

Alphabet (GOOGL)

Alphabet is falling slightly, but the stock got a lot of positive comments from the sell-side overnight, and price target increases. I’d be surprised to see the stock trade down today. Again, the miss on earnings last night mainly came from loss in investments. Remember that do to a change in the tax codes, investment holdings are now marked up or down every quarter. So if you are investing in Google to be a hedge fund, then I can see why the stock is down, if not, then the sell-off doesn’t last. Resistance comes around $1,300, and support is $1225.

Beyond Meat (BYND)

Beyond is getting smashed today, with support around $78. The options traders nailed this one. It seems these options traders are right more often then they are wrong; they needed the stock to fall to around $86 to profit. I noted a lot of bearish option betting taking place in Beyond, last Thursday, in a premium story. Beyond Meat’s Plunge May Not Be Over

Shopify (SHOP)

Shopify is falling after posting a more significant loss than expected. The stock needs to hold support around $300 from a psychological level. $285 is support, while $315 is resistance.


AMD will report later today, and for now, the chart looks as if the stock wants to push higher before those results to around $34.50. But the stock is getting overbought, and I don’t know what happens after results come out. I will be watching this one closely and providing an update during the day in the premium area.  I had thought that AMD was going to fall following results, but this stock is crazy, as we know. Here’s Why AMD May Drop By As Much As 12%


NXPI is rising after posting better than expected results and inline guidance. The stock is bumping up against resistance around $115.50. A break above that price sends it back to $121.

Mott Capital Management is the portfolio manager for one portfolio offered by Interactive Advisors. Interactive Advisors is part of the Interactive Brokers Group, and all brokerage transactions in Interactive Advisors client accounts are made through Interactive Brokers LLC, an Interactive Advisors affiliate, which is a conflict of interest because Interactive Brokers makes commissions on its advisory affiliate’s trading.  Interactive Advisors clients do not invest directly with the Portfolio Managers like Mott Capital Management, and the Managers do not have discretionary trading authority over Interactive Advisors client accounts. The Portfolio Managers on the Interactive Advisors platform simply license their trade data to Interactive Advisors, which then allows its clients to have the same strategy and trading decisions mirrored in their accounts if the Portfolio is in line with their risk score. Portfolio Managers like Mott Capital Management implement their trading philosophy and strategy without knowing the identity of Interactive Advisors’ clients or taking into account these clients’ individualized circumstances.
