The Closing Print live trading and financial blog during market hours.

The weekly watchlist is performing very well, as the stock markets, SPY, and S&P500 consolidate just shy of all-time highs. The Nasdaq trades above its all-time high, by comparison, so its no surprise that we’re focused on technology stocks

Technology and July Seasonality

In addition to Nasdaq’s outperformance on a purely technical basis, we now have the month of July to contend with. This is the seasonally strongest month of the year for anything tech.

With technology blazing a path higher, expect the watchlist winners to outperform over the next few weeks.

Rob’s Watchlist

Robert Caplan is one member that shares his watchlist on a regular basis. The similarities on our selection criteria are noteworthy. Given: Markets are bullish, and the sector containing our candidate is trending higher.

NDX, QQQ, and XLK are bullish.

  • The stock is in a bullish trend with price above 9/21d moving averages
  • Price has recently tested the 9/21d
  • RSI is above 50
  • MACD is above its signal line or about to cross

First my favorites.

Texas Instruments (TXN) is following the path of other notable semiconductor stocks. It recently tested its bullish 21d moving average. Buyers stepped up and bought more shares. RSI is rising, as a function on price, while remaining above 50. MACD is about to cross.

Volume suggests institutions are present.

Texas Instruments reports earnings after hours, on July 21.

SolarEdge Technologies (SEDG) is primarily in the business of manufacturing critical components for the alternative energy industry. Thats said, its offerings are technology-based.

Price action is rising through the 9/21d, with RSI moving above 50. MACD will cross soon. Volume the past few days shows institutions are active.

Rob’s entire list of candidates is below, ranked by performance.
