Stocks Drop On November 30 Ahead Of Data Deluge

Stocks finished mixed on November 30, with the S&P 500 falling by roughly 40 basis points and the QQQ finishing up slightly. Nothing really major developed. Perhaps everyone is waiting for the deluge of data to come this week starting tomorrow, with the ISM manufacturing report, the ADP job report on Wed, the ISM services and jobless claims on Thursday, and the BLS job report on Friday.

S&P 500 (SPY)

Perhaps there is an ascending triangle forming in the S&P 500 chart, hard to tell at the moment. I could always map it another way like a wedge. So we should take another day to be sure.

Zoom (ZM)

Zoom reported better than expected results on the top and bottom and also provided better than expected guidance. Still, the shares are down about 4% as I write this. It had been down as much as 7%. I’m sure there are plenty out there that think Zoom is the future of something. But remember, for stock to justify this valuation, it will need to grow even faster. Yes! The company is guiding revenue to about $2.6 billion this year.  With a market of $134 billion, they will have to grow that revenue to around $7 billion over the next 2 or so years to get that P/S ratio down to 20, $14 billion to get it 10. It depends on how you want to value the company. Not sure they are growing fast enough at this pace. Analysts project revenue of just $3.9 billion by 2023. That will likely come up some.

The gap on Zoom is filled; we should continue to move lower now.


AMD moved up today. No big deal, and not unexpected. I said somewhere; I can’t remember where the stock could retrace one last time to retest the previous high. So we will see clearly a bearish divergence on the RSI with the series of lower highs. Not a good sign. The last line of resistance comes at $94; we will see.

PayPal (PYPL)

Meanwhile, PayPal is still range bound and yet to break out or break down. We will see on this one too.

Broadcom (AVGO)
