Ready to Rally?

The market spent most of last week testing its late-January low, and the combination of some positive breadth divergences (about 1,200 stocks on the NYSE and Nasdaq hit new lows last Thursday, versus 2,300 on January 20) and Friday’s big upmove could mean it’s time for another rally attempt. We’ll be watching the 1,950 level on the S&P 500 and 4,650 level on the Nasdaq—pushes above both levels could turn the intermediate-term trend back up.

But that’s looking far down the line; right now, the market’s major trends remain down, and while some stocks and sectors have shaped up, most are still in the mud. Thus, a defensive stance is advised, though we’ll be keeping a close eye on the action in the days ahead.

This week’s list has some enticing names, including a few that reacted well to earnings. Our Top Pick a behind-the-scenes player in air travel and hotel bookings that has steady growth, booming cash flow and a stock that showed unusual power following its recent quarterly report.
