Market’s Latest Stock Breakouts Find Three Key Trends

Stocks In Buy Zones

Element Solutions stock rallied 7.2% to 20.24, running past an 18.50 cup-base buy point in heavy volume, according to MarketSmith analysis. The 5% chase zone for ESI stock runs to 20.48. The relative strength line is at a new high, reflecting its outperformance vs. the S&P 500 index. The specialty chemicals maker — touching on electric vehicles, 5G, AI and smartphones — recently reported a 41% EPS gain for the latest quarter.

Stellantis stock climbed 2.6% to 17.56, clearing a 17.31 cup-base entry. Stellantis is the result of a recent merger between Fiat Chrysler and France’s Peugeot. STLA stock has lagged Ford (F), General Motors (GM) and especially Volkswagen (VWAGY), but earnings are rebounding solidly and its RS line is at a new high.

Ternium stock rose 3.9% to 35.43, above a 34.09 cup-base buy point in heavy volume. TX stock originally broke out on March 2 then fell back a few days later. Shares just closed in buy range on Monday, but fell listed below the entry Tuesday morning before rebounding.

CarMax stock hit 132 intraday but reversed lower to down 0.3% to 128.82, still slightly above the 128.68 buy point. KMX stock jumped 4.85% to 129.17 on Monday. The RS line is at a high. CarMax earnings have rebounded as the tight new-car supply fuels used-car sales and prices. The used-car giant also has made a big push into digital sales during the pandemic.

Microsoft stock advanced 2.8% to 233.78, back above a 232.96 buy point. The Dow Jones tech giant also reclaimed its 50-day and 21-day moving averages, as well as breaking a short downtrend.

In many ways, the MSFT stock chart in the past few weeks looks a lot like that of the S&P 500 index. Buying Microsoft stock near the 50-day line makes sense as a Long-Term Leader. Investors also could start a stake here, then fill out the position if and when MSFT stock completes and clears a new consolidation starting with the Feb. 16 all-time high of 246.13. The RS line for Microsoft stock has lagged since July and is off its early-February levels, but has held better than many tech names in the past few weeks.

Stock Market Rally Analysis

Analyzing the current stock market rally attempt is difficult because the major indexes are so split. It’s normal to see one index lead to the upside or downside, but usually they all trend in the same direction. But that hasn’t been the pattern in recent weeks.

On Tuesday, the stock market did rally across the board. The Nasdaq led with a powerful rebound, as Tesla stock and many speculative growth names soared following several down days. The S&P 500 index rose strongly while the Dow Jones eked out a slim gain after a solid intraday gain.

But the Nasdaq and many hot stocks like Nvidia are still below their 50-day lines. The best one-day gains in history are all in bear markets, so one big day for growth stocks in a correction doesn’t mean much by itself.

Tuesday marked day three of a stock market rally attempt. Especially for the Nasdaq and growth sectors, a follow-through day to confirm the new rally is key. A follow-through could come any day now. A strong Nasdaq gain from these levels also could push the tech-heavy index to or above its 50-day and 21-day lines.

The Dow Jones, despite its lackluster finish, is trading right at record highs. Several more real economy stocks entered buy zones. To be blunt, if the Dow Jones and cyclical sectors embodied the stock market, IBD wouldn’t have declared a correction last week. With the Dow Jones and related sectors at new highs, it’s easy to argue that this major segment of the market is in an uptrend — and never was in a correction.

The S&P 500 index also looks healthier, regaining key levels. So does the Russell 2000.

IBD Stock Of The Day In Buy Range As Earnings Rebound On These Trends

What To Do Now?

Work on your stock watchlists, focusing on relative strength. Amongst those, pay close attention to stocks that are setting up near buy points.

Investors could choose to take some small positions in stocks breaking out or flashing other buy signals. Aside from a couple of names such as Microsoft, that’s generally going to be real economy names. As for growth stocks, wait for a follow-through day. Even then, numerous stocks such as Nio, Zoom or Tesla might take weeks or longer to forge new buying opportunities.

This is an important day to read The Big Picture to understand the market direction.
