StockTwits Week Ahead: Seahawks Stocks, Stadler Stocks & the Buzz on Twitter Earnings
Good morning from StockTwits CEO @StockTwitsJohn. The Seahawks proved last night that the best offense is a great defense and that could be the case in the stock market again this week if emerging market fears begin swirling, sending people flooding into the safety of Treasuries. The perfect storm for the markets would be a weak jobs report this Friday amid what seems to be a Fed set on continued tapering. With the 10-Yr back down at 2.7%, some of those high-yielders with positive StockTwits sentiment could be correction protection winners such as Microsoft $MSFT, Pfizer $PFE, AT&T $T and Verizon $VZ.
But one guy that definitely played offense this weekend was Kevin Stadler@Stadspga. The son of ‘The Walrus’ began his own legacy by outdriving Bubba Watson with a perfect monster blast at TPC Scottsdale on 18 down the middle of the fairway, setting him up for a Phoenix Open win, his first on the PGA tour. We’d like to think the new StockTwits logo on his bag had something to do with this W and the many more to come. (Read our Chairman Howard Lindzon’s blog post about Stadler here.)
So if you want to play offense like ‘The Smallrus’ this week, opportunities abound for the bold and smart. Consider this: 252 S&P 500 stocks fell and 248 rose last week. I can’t ever remember seeing breadth split exactly down the middle for a week. Look for that trader’s market to continue like last week as stocks such as Apple $AAPL and Yahoo $YHOO disappointed and Facebook $FB and Netflix $NFLX took off.
Twitter $TWTR after the bell Wednesday will be the report everyone will be watching. Scroll down for the latest sentiment reading.
Whether you’re playing ‘D’ like the Seahawks or big ‘O’ like Kevin, go get ‘em $Cashtaggers.
