CSX (CSX) ($24.00 in after hours Tuesday vs. $24.51 at Friday's close) remains a sell rated transportation stock so it's not a surprise that the stock slipped even with a nickel beat on earnings per share. My monthly value level is $20.93 with a weekly risky level at $24.85.
Intel (INTC) ($22.07 in after hours Tuesday vs. $21.67 at Friday's close) missed EPS estimates by two cents but the stock rebounded 0.7% despite the miss and couscous outlook on PC sales. A close on Friday above or below its five-week modified moving average at $21.45 and the 200-week SMA at $22.00 will key the stock's upside or downside.
Yahoo! (YHOO) ($22.80 in after hours Tuesday vs. $24.69 at Friday's close) beat EPS estimates by nine cents but the stock slumped 4.2% as revenue dipped on ad struggles.
Yahoo stock set a new multi-year high at $24.99 on Monday put the stock on the cusp of my monthly pivot at $22.85 after a near test of this week's risky level at $25.11 with my annual pivot at $23.56 in-between.
Today I handicap seven more stocks whose earnings could key market direction, three after the close on Thursday and four pre-market Friday. My analysis includes four more Dow components.
