Trifecta Stocks

Chart of the Week: MS

By Bryan Ashenberg and Bob Lang | 05/06/15 - 09:34 AM EDT
Stocks in Focus: MS

As we research for the Trifecta Stocks portfolio we look at hundreds of stocks. While only a few meet our requirements for addition to the portfolio, we come across many interesting technical opportunities in a host of names.

In response to subscribers' requests, we will also be sharing a Chart of the Week. While these stocks may not be in the Trifecta portfolio, we hope this technical analysis will provide you with more value. But we are not recommending any investor action.

The banking sector tends to move in unison, often going higher during strong economic conditions. In addition, a rising rate environment with higher yield spreads is also a positive for the financials as the net interest margin (NIM) expands.

This is a key profit driver to the bottom line that has been missing since the Fed instituted their zero interest rate policy (ZIRP) some years ago.

Some of the recent earnings released by banks showed some encouraging signs, and long term rates, the ten and 30- year yields, have been creeping higher. This could be a sign of higher inflation or perhaps stronger growth ahead, or a combination.

The charts of course tell the story of money flows, and regardless of the fundamental arguments, if the big money is coming into these names, then there is certainly something of substance happening.

Morgan Stanley (MS:NYSE) is one of those names that is showing good volume and strong price action.

The recent run higher post earnings in mid-April has been impressive, with solid Relative Strength and improving technical patterns. The gap just above $38.5 (arrow) begs to be filled, while the late 2014 high is a good first target.

DISCLOSURE: Trifecta Stocks has no position in MS. This Alert is a technical analysis of the company’s chart, and we are not taking any action in the stock at this time.
