Frustrated Bear? Temporary Relief Is on the Way

June 19, 2023

Two destructive juggernauts in particular are bearing down on the economy with such force that only investors in a far-gone state of madness could contrive to ignore them. For one, an epic collapse in commercial real estate is well under way that will flatten the economy for decades. And for two, the most extreme yield-curve inversion on record is predicting a commensurately extreme recession.

Under the circumstances, it would seem logical for traders to short into the stock market’s show of bravado. So far, however, this strategy has brought only pain, along with the sight of stubborn bears being carried out in body bags. “This is starting to get out of hand,” remarked a bruised and battered Rick’s Picks subscriber in the chat room the other day. “What’s the latest [Hidden Pivot] for a topping call. At least an intermediate top?”  You can access my precisely detailed response by clicking here, but the bottom line is this: Two bellwether stocks have at least somewhat higher to go before they, and presumably the entire stock market, are ready to keel over from exhaustion.

A Setback, then Higher

Specifically, MSFT has a 5% rally ahead of it before it reaches a potentially important top, and AAPL an additional 3.6%. These figures are based on Friday’s close and differ slightly from the ones given in the recording, a tech analysis session that includes some nifty tricks you can try yourself with put and call options.  The precise price targets for the two stocks lie, respectively, at 360.02 and 191.73. Jot these numbers down if you trade the stocks, because both are capable of stopping the running of the bulls in its tracks.

But only temporarily, I should warn you. That much is clear in the long-term Microsoft chart above. Although the imminent selloff could be brutal, I expect the broad averages to come roaring back to challenge the lofty highs recorded at the beginning of 2022. That’s why I would suggest taking partial profits early and often as stocks recede from the rally targets as we should expect.
