Communications Select Sector SPDR Key Components.
The Meta Platforms daily price chart is here:
The stock this week broke above the early October high of $330, hit just below $340 and closed at $335. Meta trades above both up trending 50-day and 200-day moving averages. The late April gap up (red circled) represents some serious post-earnings report frenzied buying.
Here is Alphabet’s daily price chart:
Underperforming the ETF and the 2 stocks mentioned above, this one failed to reach a new high. On the hand, more bullishly, it’s closed for 4 straight sessions above its 50-day moving average. Also, the 200-day moving average trends steadily upward.
Disney is another underperformer for the ETF with this daily price chart:
The stock closed above its 200-day moving average for the first time since May. The 50-day moving average is now trending upward. The huge gap down in May is a target that may be tough to fill — at least, anytime soon.
AT&T is also a holding of the Communications Select Sector SPDR. The daily price chart is here:
It’s another of the underperformers only late this week showing enough buying strength to close above the down trending 200-day moving average. It’s a positive that the 50-day moving average has turned upward. The big April gap down may be a difficult target to fill.
