  • mpegues: $PLAY sold that last of my stock this morning and glad I did.
  • Reif99: Bought $PLAY for the bounce. Looking or 2-3 points
  • mpegues: @Reif99 $PLAY Same here.
  • geothrills: $PLAY - Reviewed during last week's live trading. Didn't give us much then, but showing some signs of life today. Add on a move above $40.60, Stop at $39.
  • debeers: @geothrills $PLAY -GL-earnings were ok but gave a downbeat guide.
  • geothrills: @debeers $PLAY Only short term reversion trade. Seeing potential for $2-$3 of upside to around $1 of downside at current level. Not planning to stick around on this one.
  • bogiedog1: $PLAY maybe starting to give the long awaited bounce off the bottom.
  • grcjr: @bogiedog1 $PLAY - maybe ... it is no longer under the lower BB but still below the 20dma, the 50dma, and the 200dma. I'd like to see a move above $43 for a spec trade.
  • geothrills: @grcjr Waiting until $PLAY is above $43 to go long is waiting out what I expect to be the "easy" reversion move. Put on a short term trading position today, intending to add above $40.60 (yesterday's high) with a stop that I moved up to $39.79 at the close (my breakeven point).
  • rachel: ...
    $PLAY – oversold rebound swing trade...still waiting. Alert S40.85
    $AYX – solid move off 50-day MA. Should have stops locking in profit.
    $FNKO – Alert $22.90
    $ESNT – Alert $50 and $47.45
    $UPLD – Holding at 50-day ...
  • efrain007: $PLAY gap down earnings, watching for a move over opening high for trade.
  • mpegues: $PLAY opened down 17% and below the 3 standard deviation.
  • PJMR11: $PLAY At almost LOD
  • DAN: @drdavidfreitas Oh, I wouldn't be buying anything tonight in anticipation for tomorrow. But some stocks that I will be watching for potential trades tomorrow are $PLAY $LULU $TLRD and $RH. I'll have a bigger list by the morning. Look forward to seeing you there, my friend. Dan
  • rachel: ...
    $PLAY -- $40 floor. Consider 2nd day snapback. (Looking for $GME type trade).
    $LULU – earnings beat
    $RH – Earnings beat
    $BEAT – watching for an upside move. Added this to GSL in Feb. This chart illustrates the merits of having ...
  • BocaRick: @woodman $TRXC $EXEL $ARRY premarket also $PLAY and $SSYS
  • issues: @petros06 $XPO bought small with stop at $39. Thanks! Fraud in the courts takes decades to resolve. Also bought $PLAY yesterday and it's holding up.
  • debeers: @JustJoe $PLAY - Will you be changing your name to TheBestJoe? I ask because you certainly are a cunning linguist.
  • issues: @spmeyers $CQP $NAT $COP $USO I like the chart of CQP, especially this time of year! $NAT is a spec play. Speaking of $PLAY, anyone jumping in on this for a bounce trade? I bought a small position with a stop at $44.45. This was an IBD 50 stock last week. (Not this week). It's got a little juice in it, don't ya thunk?
  • bigbartabs: @issues $HASI $LADR $MPW $MSI $MTCH $REGN $STOR $TMO $TWTR $ULTA $ALSN $DG $FIVE $HEI $HQY $LULU $PLAY $SUPN ... do you (or anyone else) know if the $FFTY ETF is immediately updated when the IBD 50 list changes? Or is that a trailing change some time later?
  • phgruver: @bigbartabs @issues $HASI $LADR $MPW $MSI $MTCH $REGN $STOR $TMO $TWTR $ULTA $ALSN $DG $FIVE $HEI $HQY $LULU $PLAY $SUPN $FFTY From the $FFTY prospectus: "The Fund generally invests in all of the securities comprising the Index in proportion to the weightings of the securities in the Index. The Index is rebalanced and reconstituted on the last day of each trading week after the U.S. stock market closes and is published by IBD on its website, www.investors.com, and at least once weekly in its print edition. This weekly rebalancing and reconstituting of the Index will cause the Fund to have a higher portfolio turnover rate than similar funds." So, you may safely infer that rebalancing occurs weekly, but not necessarily on Monday. It may take a day or two.
  • bigbartabs: @phgruver $HASI $LADR $MPW $MSI $MTCH $REGN $STOR $TMO $TWTR $ULTA $ALSN $DG $FIVE $HEI $HQY $LULU $PLAY $SUPN $FFTY ... If its rebalanced each week, that's pretty good response. Apparently then Monday morning is when the $FFTY is most closely aligned with the IBD 50. Thanks... good luck buddy...
  • debeers: $PLAY-No one is going to Dave & Buster's. Shareholders now at the vomitorium. NP
  • JustJoe: @debeers $PLAY Let's change that name to Dave and Busted.
  • issues: New on IBD 50 for this week include: $HASI $LADR $MPW $MSI $MTCH $REGN $STOR $TMO $TWTR. Off the IBD 50: $ULTA $ALSN $DG $FIVE $HEI $HQY $LULU $PLAY $SUPN. I know it's all computerized but I have no idea why some are deleted while others are added. Maybe it sorcery? Thank you for this Issues!! You bet' ya!
  • Robert1965: @Reif99 $RH $PLAY $CRSP Shorted $RH at 158.00 yesterday hard trade only went above 158.58, once BTC at 153.75, only there for seconds $PLAY remained steady all day.
  • Reif99: $RH and $CRSP didn't give me an entry. Sold $PLAY right after the open, just got stopped out for a small loss.
  • Reif99: $RH and $PLAY may be ripe for shorts tomorrow, after monster days (>3 STD DEV) post earnings. Both finished near the high of the day, though, so it's not automatic. $CRSP may bounce after a 10% drop on news that at least some think is overblown. Hovering right above the 50 DMA.

  • Bridget: #Notes: $XLF and $XLE saw a nice turn $XLB and $XME continued higher $XLV and $XBI - down on uncertainty Earnings today: $GOOGL - gap down $MCD - breakout higher $CAT - breakout higher $STX - gap down and bounce $LLY - pullback to support $MMM - gap down $UTX - break down Earnings to come: $WYNN $BA $X $KO $CMG $T $AMD $MTSI - working $JD - working $CC - working $SYMC - working $BOFI - breakout $FOSL/$JWN/$GPS/$JCP - rising from the grave $DRI - breaking down from squeeze $PLAY - starting to look toppy $ZTS - break down from squeeze $LITE - slight pullback $VEEV - slight pullback IPOs $IPO - this IPO ETF is at all time highs $BL - breakout $ADSW - new high $JHG - top of the range
  • issues: I listened to Dan's alert on $ANET (buy at a pull back to $145) and noticed a similarity to the charts of $PLAY and $ZBRA. So I am trying to decide which one to add to. We hold starter positions in all three.
  • DAN: @issues $ANET $PLAY $ZBRA I wouldn't add to any of them right now, issues. They are indeed similar patterns. They've all broken the 50-day moving average and have not yet found buyers. I'd play it pretty close to the vest.

  • BigJack: $PLAY anyone looking at $PLay
  • shoredriver: @BigJack $PLAY $PLay looks like you are....what are your thoughts
  • BigJack: @shoredriver $PLAY Its is right at 50
  • shoredriver: @BigJack $PLAY ....ok.....and.....
  • BigJack: @shoredriver $PLAY the last few months it has bounced of the 50 for a gain. I'm still learning, your thoughts
  • Junior1: @BigJack $PLAY I see lower highs and lower lows since the failed vol squeeze breakout of early June. But you're right, it is showing some support at the 50dma
  • DAN: Some stocks that are at good entry levels. $PLAY $TRUE $MSFT. OMMers -- consider selling July 70 put for $1.80. That would give you a cost basis of $68.20, which is below the 50-day moving average. Only sell the number of contracts that you are willing to have assigned to you. --Dan
  • Bridget: $PLAY at a nice low risk buy point in its uptrend.
  • issues: Took a look at the 10 day chart and these were the best $AEIS (dropped from 12% to 1%) $LRCX (drop 6% to -1%) $AMAT (4% to -3%) $CGNX (4% to -5%) $ICHR(8% to -6%) $MTSI (-2% to -8%). But looking at the charts on this page it looks like MTSI is the best. We hold small position in $AEIS $LRCX $MTSI & $PLAY. But I added to $PLAY (thank you Bridget) and bought starter in $LITE (thanks Champ). Why? LITE went from +14% to drop to just 5% (best) and PLAY dropped from 10% of 5%. I added to $NVDA on this pull back. It closed near the high of the day. I am hoping this pull back will resume its uptrend to break out over $170! Looking at $OLED. Some of the IBD 50 this week are $AMAT $ANET $ATHM $ATVI $BABA $CGNX $EDU $ICHR $LITE $LRCX $MTSI $NVDA $PLAY
  • Bridget: $PLAY soaring higher after earnings
  • captron: $PLAY -One of my better employees. Volume is picking up on this breakout. There is enough short interest to keep this going. Added after the open.
  • Bridget: @captron $PLAY ER today after the close.
  • captron: @Bridget $PLAY Thanks for the reminder.. Will probably sell half at the close. They do have a history of surprises though.
  • DAN: $PLAY -- Friday's breakout from squeeze continuing in big way today. Earning to be released today after the close.
  • captron: $PLAY - sold 3/4 of my holdings. Will buy back in the morning if it drops after earnings.
  • captron: $PLAY - Breaking out.
  • Bridget: @captron $PLAY nice breakout. Looks like it could be an earnings run. ER on 6/6
  • captron: @Bridget $PLAY I'm hoping, which is not a strategy, it is. Added this morning.
  • captron: $PLAY - Really in a tight squeeze. Looks like its ready to go one way or the other. Need some volume.
  • captron: $PLAY - I also like $PLAY right here, bouncing off the 21ema and squeezing. It needs more volume to continue on.
  • Bridget: My fav IBD 50 stocks right now- $FIVE $ATHM $BABA $COHR $CC $CTRL $MCHP $MOMO $VEEV$MTSI $PLAY $PRAH $TRU

  • issues: PLAY? Today? $PLAY (Dave & Buster) reports earnings after hours. We hold a small position. Last time they gapped up. It's seems pretty high. Trying to decide if I want to "play" with the report. Anyone else playing?
  • arrow: @issues $PLAY Yes, shorting the April $60 puts.
  • issues: $PLAY dropping as expected in AH.
  • bsafriet: @issues $PLAY I bought the APR'17 60/65 vert call spread to "play" the report. I thought it had a good shot at mocving on results. It's down, but recovering, now at 59.48 -1.29. I couldn't see much wrong with report except same store sales prob'ly disappointed. What's your take?
  • issues: @bsafriet $PLAY Thanks for your note. It doesn't seem to matter what the report says it's a shoot first, ask questions later, type market. Look at $PANW! There wasn't anything wrong with their earnings last time (estimate .62 actual .63, yet it lost 1/3 of its value.) There is this knee jerk (like when the doc hits your knee with his rubber mallet) to sell immediately! So tomorrow we will probably see it down.
  • bsafriet: @issues $PLAY $PANW Last I've seen, it's the same same store sales (3.2% vs 3.7% expected) and disappointing guidance, 2-3% same store sales vs 3.6% expected. I don't remember if these guys guide conservatively or not. We'll have to see were this goes tomorrow after market opens.......

  • mepcc1: $PLAY - Super tight volatility squeeze set up for about a 1 month base but well above 50dma - could go either way - earnings not until March - 50dma at support level before gap up on what had to be earnings in early December. Taking a small position with an alerts - could drift along this way until next catalyst which would be earning towards end March - @Bridget - opinion?
  • bsafriet: $PLAY $OLLI $FNSR $AVGO $DIS

    I'd bought calls for $PLAY, $OLLI, $FNSR and $AVGO Monday for earnings play. Sold $PLAY position Weds at open for a nice gain. Still holding $OllI Jan-20 $30/$35 vertical call spread position. Currently a loss and I'm ...

  • captron: $PLAY - Take a look at this ticker. Looks like a low risk buy RHRN. Seems to of found a bottom. Took a place holder.
  • dpugh: $PLAY Dan has review this stock before. Is anyone buying this on a new high from earnings? Even still holding it. I was looking at a swing trade if it makes a new high. I am reluctant to buy it too with the market at the state it's in too.
  • DAN: @dpugh $PLAY I think it's a bit high to be making a new trade. Hard to envision a lot more upside if the stock does break out. That's just a "risk v. reward" thing for me.

  • issues: We bought a starter position in $INCR today. Like the chart it's an IBD 50 stock. The new additions to the IBD list this week are; $AOS $CRL $CRTO $EFX $MHK $MSCI $PLAY $SNI $PSA $UBNT $WBMD $ZBH. $NCLH reports tomorrow. With oil going up this is a question mark. Cramer says sell the cruise lines. All of these look the same on the charts; $RCL $CCL $NCLH. We hold $CCL & $NCLH. Off the ibd 50 list this week are: $AMSG $AVGO $BUFF $CDNS $FLT $HW $KORS $MAA $MTSI $RYAAY $SFM $WAL. Thank you for this helpful research! You're welcome!

  • issues: The IBD 50 sure changed dramatically this week. There are 25 new stocks replacing 25 from last weeks. The new ones are ones that didn't go down as much (more than going up so much) This shows a very defensive stance the market has taken.
