2 Stocks on My ‘Nice’ List, and 2 on My ‘Naughty’ List

by | Dec 21, 2022 | Market Updates

The major indexes rose on strong earnings reports from Nike and FedEx after the bell on Tuesday — and more in Wednesday’s stock market recap.

Nike Inc. (NYSE: NKE) beat estimates for both earnings and revenue, sending shares up about 11%.

The footwear and apparel giant also raised its outlook and confirmed progress in clearing out its excess inventory.

FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) missed on revenue expectations but beat on earnings per share. The package delivery company also shared some cost-cutting plans. Shares rose about 5.6% on the news.

Earnings season continues with Micron Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MU) reporting after the bell on Wednesday.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll reveal why I’m skeptical about Wednesday’s potential rally… why I believe Friday’s consumer sentiment data is going to be negative… which sector is showing resilience and which are sinking… an update on the bond market and what to expect next… a broad view of holiday season trading action and what you should know… plus two long stocks I like and two short stocks I’m fading!

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.
