Morning Preview: Charts About Sentiment, Seasonality, and Earnings

In today’s post we are examining three charts that are getting a ton of attention and views on StockTwits. This includes seasonality, sentiment, and earnings. Here they are:

1.) This first chart shows StockTwits sentiment for 20 of the most talked about index ETFs and stocks like $IWM, $TSLA, $SPY, and $FB. One of the most interesting numbers on this table is the sentiment score for $IWM on March 20. On that date bearish sentiment was at 90 — a near StockTwits record. $IWM is down 4.5% since then:

2.) This second chart shows all of the weeks that the S&P 500 dropped by 1% or more on both Friday and Monday of connecting weeks. To some extent, a pattern like this can be interpreted as market weakness. Meaning market participants are selling heavily to end and start the week. Each red dot on this chart highlights all of the instances when this has happened since 1960:

3.) Alcoa ($AA) reported earnings yesterday and now everyone is getting ready for earnings season. A great chart was recently shared about the current trend in earnings. It shows the S&P 500 vs. quarterly earnings. Perhaps the S&P 500 ($SPX) has become a bit extended? Take a look at this:

One of my fav charts. $SPX performance with quarterly earnings. Not a lot wrong here. $SPY
