S&P 500 (SPY)

The S&P 500 is pointing to a higher opening of about 50 basis points higher. That will push the index above resistance at 2,891, and to right around 2,900 at the open. We had been looking for the breakout yesterday, but one day late is fine by me.

Russell (IWM)

The Russell is also pointing to a rise of about 35 points to start the day. It will send the index on a course with resistance at 1,592. My view has been the index eventually makes its way towards 1,710.


Disney (DIS)

Disney is trading higher this morning rising above $120 after it revealed its Disney+ streaming service yesterday for $6.99 per month coming in November. $121.50 to $122 will serve as resistance, and I’d be shocked if the stock is not trading above those prices in after a few weeks.

Netflix (NFLX)

Netflix is trading lower as a result of the Disney launch, but don’t expect the Disney product to replace Netflix, it won’t. Disney’s service is a niche product with limited content. It is a nice addition to someones streaming universe, but Netflix is still a staple, offering plenty of content, and creating plenty of its own.

JPMorgan (JPM)

JPMorgan is rising after it posted better than expected first quarter results. The company reported revenue of $29.1 billion versus estimates of $28.05 billion. Earnings came in at $2.65 per share versus estimates of $2.35 per share.
