7 Monster Stock Market Predictions For The Week Of January 20

It will be a holiday-shortened trading week with the markets closed on Monday, and reopening on Tuesday. It will be a significantly slower week in terms of economics, but a considerably busier week in terms of earnings.

S&P 500 (SPY)

The S&P 500 continues to rocket higher, and after two weeks of strong returns, I do expect the index to pull back some, again a minor amount. Perhaps with the S&P 500 falling to around 3,250, or at the most to around 3,215. Nothing too dramatic, at least that is what I want, I’m not too fond of markets or stocks that go up in a straight line.

Netflix (NFLX

Netflix will report results on Tuesday, and analysts have been talking this one up now for a couple of weeks, with most seeming to think the company will report inline or slightly better subscriber results. The search trends for the term Netflix appears to have been very strong in the US in the fourth quarter, which is unusual, given its historical trends. Perhaps it means better than expect domestic subscribers for the quarter.

The stock has been stuck around this $340 for what feels like forever. All of the trends suggest the stock rises and fills the gap at $360. But then again, I have been saying that for what feels like forever too.

Intel (INTC

Intel will report results on Thursday, and I have been seeing a lot of options buying at the September $75 calls since the start of the year. I have been writing about for about two weeks now in the member area. Perhaps it means the stock jumps after results. We will see, resistance on the stock comes around $64 should it finally break out and rise above $60.

Skyworks (SWKS)

Skyworks will report results on Thursday too, and the strange thing here is that results are about 2-weeks earlier than last year, and they come ahead of Apple, which is even weirder. The previous time the company reported results this early and ahead of Apple was during January 2017. That was when the company reported strong results, and well, the stock went a lot higher. Does it mean anything, I guess we can find out.
