Stock Market Rally

IBD’s market outlook was upgraded to “confirmed uptrend” on March 10, as the Dow Jones Industrial Average set new highs.

Friday’s Big Picture commented, “Avoid the pitfall of staying married to the big leaders of 2020. While growth stocks will have their day in the sun again, many former leaders won’t necessarily be leaders when growth stocks start rallying again. New leadership has emerged across of a variety of subgroups and sectors, including financial, oil and gas, construction, mining, steel, chemical, fertilizer and travel stocks.”

Dow Jones Stocks: Nike

Inside the Dow Jones Industrial Average, Nike stock is approaching a 148.05 buy point in a flat base, according to IBD MarketSmith chart analysis.

Stocks To Watch: Arcelor, Hain, Regal

IBD Leaderboard stock Arcelor Mittal ended Friday in the 5% buy zone past a 25.86 buy point in a cup base. Shares broke out on Thursday.

According to Leaderboard commentary, “The stock also moved past a handle entry, but that 25.19 entry point is visible only on a weekly chart. The RS line is striking new highs since the cup began to form, a good sign.”

Hain Celestial is within striking distance of a 45.52 buy point in a flat base, according to IBD MarketSmith chart analysis. Shares ended Friday about 3% away from the entry.

According to IBD Stock CheckupHAIN stock shows a mild 73 out of a perfect 99 IBD Composite Rating. The IBD Composite Rating helps investors easily measure the quality of a stock’s fundamental and technical metrics.

Thursday’s IBD Stock Of The Day, Regal Beloit, closed Friday in buy range past a 147.07 buy point in a cup base.

The relative strength line, which tracks performance vs. the S&P 500 index, is at a 52-week high. The RS line hitting a new high before or as a stock breaks out is especially bullish. IBD MarketSmith marks such stocks with a blue dot at the end of the RS line on either a daily or weekly chart.

Tesla Stock

Tesla stock looked to rebound from Friday’s nearly 1% loss, rallying about 0.5% premarket Monday. Shares could be forming a new base, but it’s too early to identify a new entry.

On Feb. 22, the electric-auto leader broke down through its key 10-week moving average line, a critical support level.

On Jan. 25, Tesla stock hit a record high at 900.40, after climbing as much as 93% from a 466 buy point in a cup with handle. Shares are about 23% off that all-time high and still below their 10-week line.

Dow Jones Leaders: Apple, Microsoft

Among the top Dow Jones stocks, Apple rallied 0.5% premarket Monday following Friday’s 0.8% fall. Apple stock remains below its 10-week line, but a strong rebound back above the level would be bullish for the stock’s prospects. For now, the stock is finding support around its long-term 40-week line.

On Feb. 18, Apple stock triggered the 7%-8% loss-cutting sell rule when it fell more than 7% below its 138.89 buy point in a cup with handle.

Meanwhile, Microsoft rose about 0.3% premarket Monday, on pace to rebound from Friday’s 0.6% drop. The stock is above its 232.96 buy point and in buy range.
