Market Interpretation:

The market rally is white hot.  The S&P 500 continues to power into new highs.  The NASDAQ Composite is on the brink of rising to decade highs.  That is quite a feat considering that AAPL has corrected more than 38%.  Other liquid NASDAQ tech leaders have been trending higher, including GOOG, ORCL, EBAY, and FB.

While the rally is quite extended, it remains under aggressive institutional accumulation.  In the last week, LNKD joined the ranks of ultra-hot leading stocks, as it surged on Friday, as quarterly earnings nearly tripled.

Joel’s Take:

At this point in the rally, most leading stocks have broken out.  A few more might emerge from earnings reports or recent IPO’s.  While economic signals remain mixed, the Fed’s liquidity programs are driving real estate and equities higher.  Additionally, bonds have been selling off, creating further fuel for the stock market.

Leading innovative growth stocks have continued to trend higher.  A handful have tested support levels, but most continue to surge.  Construction, tech, consumer, medical, and energy stocks are surging higher.  It is important not to chase stocks beyond normal buy areas.  On the other hand, now is a good time to determine which of your stocks are real leaders, and to decide how to handle them.  It is important to take some profits on the way up, according to your rules.
