Home Depot reported earnings today.

Home Depot second-quarter sales bounce back, results top estimates

https://finance.yahoo.com

That's good, right?

The initial pre-market reaction started off positive hitting $199, but as the day progressed, the stock price turned negative.

That is not good.

When a stock opens higher after earnings, then falls for the rest of the day.

Wow. Great acting. #chills

Let's look at the 1 year chart.

In the last 12 months, the stock price went from $150 to a record high of $207.

Then the stock retraced to about $175 only to rally back to around $200.

Each time the stock broke $200, the stock failed to hit the previous record high.

The stock failed to hit a new high 3 times.

There are 2 technical chart patterns this could be.

Both are bearish, the "head and shoulders" chart pattern and the "triple top" chart pattern.

Based on that, this could be the beginning of a short-term drop down to $180 or lower.

Another stock that may be in a similar situation is Lowes.

I would not buy either of these stocks right now.

It's scary question time.

If this is a top for home improvement stores, what does that say about the consumer?

How will other related industries, like real estate, be affected?

Wait a second.

Isn't that a little early to be asking those doom and gloom questions?

If you are asking yourself those 2 questions, you are not alone.

Mark Cuban seems to be worried as well.

Mark Cuban owns just a handful of stocks and 'a whole lot of cash' because he's worried about the market

Of course, Cuban has been an outspoken critic of Trump for many years.


Tue, Aug 14, 2018 HD @ $193.10

Tue, Aug 14, 2018 LOW @ $98.40

I was scanning my list of low pe stocks last night.

I saw a few buying opportunities there, but the one that stood out the most to me was Mohawk Industries.

It's P/E Ratio is 4.38. That's pretty low.

Also, MHK has a $16 Billion market cap.

But what do they do?

"In 2015, Mohawk was recognized as the most used, top-brand familiarity, and top-quality rating carpet product by the Builder magazine." https://en.wikipedia.org

You may have seen their products at Home Depot and Lowe's. By the way, both HD and LOW are near all-time high levels.

So let's look at some technical analysis.

As you can see, the trendline I highlighted shows a long-term uptrend trading range.

More importantly, the stock price has recently bounced off of the bottom of the trading range or support.

Let's look at that closer.

The 1 year chart looks pretty bad.

After climbing the first half of the year to a record high, the stock has dropped significantly after each of the past 2 earnings dates which are the black vertical lines.

The area I highlighted in yellow is what I think could be a bottom as well as a reversal.

It looks like an "inverse head and shoulders" chart pattern

The price has started to move higher through the 50 day moving average, which is also bullish.

All in all, that's why I bought today.

This is a setup that I really like.

I am hoping to make $10 or more on this trade.

Of course, there is the Trade War risk, but I am wondering if that is not already priced in.

The stock has dropped from $280 to $220.

The next earnings date is Wed, Jul 25, 2018.

What do you think?
