The Dow Jones Industrial Average briefly rallied 350 points Monday, looking to add to Friday’s powerful stock market gains ahead of a week of key earnings reports. Tesla stock dived more than 5% after cutting Model 3 and Model Y prices in China by as much as 9%.
The Purchasing Managers’ Index, known as PMI, for the manufacturing and services industries came out at 9:45 a.m. ET. The manufacturing index fell into a contraction, measuring 49.9 and below estimates at 51.2. The services index fell further into a contraction at 46.6, also lower than the forecasted 49.3, according to Econoday estimates.
Another round of noteworthy third-quarter earnings results are expected to roll in this week, with key reports from Dow Jones stocks Apple (AAPL), Boeing (BA), Chevron (CVX), Merck (MRK), Microsoft (MSFT)  and Visa (V), among others. Tech giants Alphabet (GOOGL) and Meta Platforms (META) will also report.
Shipping giant FedEx (FDX) declined 0.5% Monday morning after Wells Fargo downgraded the stock from overweight to equal-weight with a lowered price target of 160.
Electric-vehicle giant Tesla (TSLA) skidded more than 4%, while Dow Jones tech leaders Apple and Microsoft moved slightly higher after today’s stock market open. Software heavyweight ServiceNow (NOW) rose more than 1% after Guggenheim Securities upgraded the stock to buy.
AutoZone (AZO), Cardinal Health (CAH), Molina Healthcare (MOH) and Texas Roadhouse (TXRH) — as well as Dow Jones stocks Chevron and Merck — are among the top stocks to buy and watch. Keep in mind that the new stock market rally is the perfect time for investors to put their watchlists into action, and to hone their pyramiding technique.
Young rallies, particularly those fighting bear markets, often fail. Pyramiding provides a method of moving into new stock positions incrementally, in order to minimize risk to capital.
Cardinal and Texas Roadhouse are IBD Leaderboard stocks. Merck and Molina Healthcare were featured in last week’s Stocks Near A Buy Zone column, along with two other top stock ideas. AutoZone was the IBD Stock Of The Day in recent weeks.
After Monday’s opening bell, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.7%, while the S&P 500 moved up 0.3%. The Nasdaq composite dropped 0.7% in morning action.
Among exchange-traded funds, the Nasdaq 100 tracker Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) traded down 0.7%, and the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) rose 0.3%.
China’s Hang Seng Index dived 6.4% Monday, closing at its lowest level since April 29, 2009. Chinese leader Xi Jinping continued to consolidate his power, appointing a number of supporters to the party’s most powerful decision-making body after securing a convention-defying third term.
Meanwhile, markets in the U.K. and Europe ran higher, picking up Friday’s U.S. optimism toward a possible shift in the Federal Reserve’s mood. Frankfurt’s DAX and the CAC-40 in Paris traded more than 1.5% higher just past midday.
The 10-year Treasury yield rebounded Monday morning, ticking higher to 4.22% after Friday’s fall to 4.21%. Last week, the 10-year Treasury yield settled at its highest level since June 2008.
U.S. oil prices erased early losses Monday, pausing after a three-day win streak. West Texas Intermediate futures traded near $85 a barrel.
On Friday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed up 2.5%, while the Nasdaq composite turned in a 2.3% gain for the day and ended the week up 5.2%. The S&P 500 notched a 2.4% gain and rose nearly 4.8% for the week.
Friday’s The Big Picture commented, “Given this is likely a bear market rally, risk remains elevated. It is not the time to aggressively jump back in to stocks with both feet, but to take a measured approach. Exposure should be limited to a maximum of 20% for most investors. Aggressive investors should stay below 40% exposure until the market begins to prove itself.”
Now is an important time to read IBD”s The Big Picture column. Following Friday’s gains, investors want to put their curated watchlists to work, in order to jump on future breakouts. But not all follow-throughs work, so it’s important to raise exposure slowly and methodically, as the new uptrend proves itself.
