1) MARKET SUMMARY
         > >From "The Daily" by Jon Johnson at InvestmentHouse.com


The week started with the indices hitting new selloff lows.

- Bounce off the bottom of the range that started early week is reversed.
- NYSE indices break to lower closing lows. Can NASDAQ make a stand?
- More leadership groups weaken.
- China economic data sliding farther down. EU as well.
- Retail Sales quite solid, prices soften. Isn't this want we want? Don't ask the Fed.
- We have lived in a textbook of economic cause and effect, yet our wealth is ruled by people in denial of history.
- Sentiment gets interesting with stock fund outflows jumping to a record. Everyone is negative as the indices break lower so watch for false breakdowns.


Market Summary (continued)
The week started with the indices hitting new selloff lows. They rebounded, however, the same session, putting in what looked to be a decent reversal off a lower low that just undercut the October low. Then some good news on trade, some mild inflation numbers, and a continued view the Fed was softening.

A bounce ensued, though it was halting at best. A gap higher Tuesday that faded to a loss or virtually no gain. A pair of moves upside Wednesday and Thursday, but neither could hold much of the upside. Friday the indices simply failed, at least on NYSE. Futures were lower and bids never materialized. The indices opened lower and then sold through the session, closing at the lows.

SP500 -50.59, -1.91%
NASDAQ -159.67, -2.26%
DJ30 -496.87, -2.02%
SP400 -1.47%
RUTX -1.53%
SOX -1.42%
NASDAQ 100 -2.56%

VOLUME: NYSE +8%, NASDAQ +2%. NYSE trade moved up to just over average. NASDAQ volume did move higher, but is still well below average. Selling volume for sure, but not blowout volume.

ADVANCE/DECLINE: NYSE -3.5:1, NASDAQ -3.2:1. Definitely on the strong side, definitely superior to any upside breadth of late.

SP500 and DJ30 closed at lower closing lows below the recent 3 month range. SP400 and RUTX were already there, and they continued to mine lower lows.

NASDAQ and SOX fared a bit better. NASDAQ again tested the 2016 trendline, holding it on the close. That kept it just over the November low. SOX gapped lower Friday but is still easily above the October, November and December lows. The chips showed some relative strength on the week mainly thanks to AVGO's rally along with INTC and AMD holding steady. Outside of that, chips were chippy.

NBEV (New Age Beverages Corporation)
Company Profile
Healthy living can make me feel good and I don't even have to do it. I can buy NBEV and make money. NBEV set up a nice inverted head and shoulders at the bottom of a pullback, a pattern that has made us tons of money since 2009. It set up, we saw it and put it on the report. On Tuesday NBEV broke higher and we entered with some stock at $5.25. NBEV made a nice quick breakout move on into early Thursday. Gapped upside Thursday, hit the target, and we took half the gain, selling the stock for $6.44, banking a 22% gain. Faded Thursday off that move, but held the 10 day EMA on the Friday low and bounced. Looks as if NBEV is heading higher again after this quick test and we will perhaps add some more as it does.

ATHM (Autohome--$87.46; -2.14; optionable): Chinese ecommerce
Company Profile
EARNINGS: 02/11/2019
STATUS: Cup w/handle. ATHM peaked a move in June and sold into the current base, falling with progression of the trade war with the US. ATHM and other China stocks started to bottom in October, e.g. SOHU, BABA, HTHT -- anticipating better things ahead. The trade war is working for the US, and it will eventually work for China businesses whether or not the Chinese government remains or remains the same. Ultimately the empire will fall if it does not change its ways -- Spock told us that in the old Star Trek episode 'Mirror, Mirror' (okay, I ad libbed a bit, but the idea is the same). Anyway ATHM and others bottomed and rose into November. Last week ATHM cleared the 200 day SMA then tested Wednesday to Friday. This is a short handle to the cup base and when it breaks higher we want to play. As for the option choices we are looking nearer term in January (100% to target) and March (58% to target) as we are looking at any market move to be a bounce if it occurs, but the Chinese stocks could continue improving if there is a deal reached. Thus, perhaps a bit 'longer' term view (if you can call 3 months long term) on those.

3) IH ALERTS

ULTA (Ulta Salon--$246.85; -4.67; optionable): Cosmetics, etc. retail stores
Company Profile
EARNINGS: 03/07/2019
STATUS: ULTA dropped stone-like from the 50 day EMA just over a week back, falling to the 200 day SMA. Before that it hit a new all-time high in mid-November. A high flier that is taking its lumps. Last week ULTA tried to move up from the 200 day, managing to move over it Tuesday through Thursday, but it could not hold the move. Friday ULTA started to creep lower, and if it continues downside, we certainly want to play the next move lower, one we think is near 230 and the July/August lows. That move lands a 50%ish gain on the put options.
