High Probability Bearish Signals Generated on 4 Homebuilders

High Probability Bearish Signals Generated on 4 Homebuilders

The pandemic has changed the housing industry considerably in the past year. Consumers have changed their preferred living arrangements and that has created an increase in the demand for single-family homes.

Because of the increase in demand for homes, the stocks of homebuilders have rallied sharply since last March. The SPDR S&P Homebuilders ETF (XHB) was below $25 at its low in March and it recently moved above the $60 level. That is a huge move for an ETF. With such a big move, many of the stocks have moved in to overbought territory and we see that the weekly stochastic indicators for the XHB are in overbought territory. The 10-week RSI is close to being overbought, but isn’t quite there.

With so many homebuilders being overbought, I found it interesting that Tickeron’s AI Prediction Tool generated bearish signals on four different homebuilders on January 12. The predictions called for declines of at least 4% over the next month and all four had confidence levels over 80%.

The four stocks that received the bearish signals were D.R. Horton (DHI), LGI Homes (LGIH), Meritage Homes (MTH), and Toll Brothers (TOL). If we look at the fundamental screener from Tickeron, we see that three of the four stocks, all but LGI Homes, get poor scores in their Outlook Ratings. Three of the four also get poor ratings from their P/E Growth Rating with Toll Brothers being the only one that doesn’t get a bad score.

All four companies get neutral ratings in the SMR Ratings and the Price Growth Ratings. As you can see in the snapshot above, there are very few scores highlighted in green. D.R. Horton gets two, the Valuation Rating and the Profit vs. Risk Rating, and Toll Brothers and LGI Homes each get one positive rating.

The technical screener shows LGI Homes getting four bearish signals and only one bullish signal. Meritage Homes also gets four bearish signals, but it has three bullish signals as well.

Toll Brothers gets the best marks on the technical side with four bullish signals and two bearish signals. D.R. Horton shows three bullish signals and two bearish signals.

All four stocks have received bearish signals from the Aroon Indicator within the last few weeks. Three of the four have received bearish signals from the Momentum Indicator in the last 10 days and three of the four have received bearish signals from the moving averages.

These companies have benefitted from the change in consumer behavior, but it could be the bearish signals are suggesting that the stocks have rallied to the point that they have gotten ahead of the possible growth for the companies.

You can see a complete analysis and comparison for the companies from Tickeron’s artificial intelligence platform below.

4 Tricks Hedge Funds Use to Get Ahead

4 Tricks Hedge Funds Use to Get Ahead

If the stock market were Major League Baseball, hedge funds and institutional investors would be the pros on championship teams while everyday self-directed investors (SDIs) are the benchwarmers in the minors.It’s how they get ahead, and it’s why 90% of SDIs lose money trying to play (invest and trade) in the major leagues. The 4 tricks we discuss below are rooted in one common theme: they all use Artificial Intelligence and algorithms to generate data and ideas.

How to Start Trading Penny Stocks

US unemployment rate jumps to 14.7%, the highest in series history

US unemployment rate jumps to 14.7%, the highest in series history

The U.S. economy’s employment fell by -20.5 million in April. The coronavirus crisis led to unemployment rate soaring to 14.7% in the U.S, the highest rate in the Bureau of Labor Statistics-tracked series history that goes back to 1948. However, the figures were better compared to several economists'/analysts' forecasts of 22 million job losses and 16% unemployment rate.  Another unemployment measure that includes those who have stopped looking for work as well as those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons also touched an all-time high of 22.8%.
