The Top Bull and Bear Stocks as Nasdaq Reaches Vital Price Level

by | Feb 2, 2022 | Market Updates

Earnings on tech are shaping up to be better than expected as Google parent company Alphabet reports a blowout fourth quarter — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.

Nasdaq futures rose 1.5% Wednesday morning following a strong earnings report from Alphabet Inc. Class C (Nasdaq: GOOG).

The tech titan beat fourth-quarter estimates for earnings and revenue for both its services, as well as its cloud business.

The company also announced a 20-for-1 stock split for its Class A (Nasdaq: GOOGL), B and C shares. The Class A and C shares are both trading for around $3,000 each as of Wednesday morning. The Class B shares aren’t publicly traded and held mostly by company insiders and early investors. 

The news sent shares up more than 10% in premarket trading, and helped pull the Nasdaq back above its 200-day moving average.

If the Nasdaq and other indices move above their 50-day moving averages, it’ll be a bullish signal for the markets.  

In this morning’s stock market recap video, you’ll learn which index is leading the pack… what sector has a chance to show strong upside… whether volatility is declining… the most probable scenario for bonds in the near term… the most crucial Federal Reserve data right now… an update on where the market is headed… plus my top long play and weakest bottom play.
