Dow Jones Today: Evergrande, Fed Policy Decision

Ahead of the stock market open Wednesday, Dow Jones futures rallied 0.6% vs. fair value, while S&P 500 futures moved up 0.5%. Nasdaq 100 futures rose 0.3% vs. fair value. Remember that trading in Dow Jones futures and elsewhere doesn’t necessarily translate into actual trading in the next regular stock market session.

Property developer China Evergrande Group said it would make an interest payment on an onshore bond, easing some default fears. The company is still expected to miss a separate payment due on its dollar bonds, which are widely held by international investors.

The Federal Reserve’s two-day meeting will finish Wednesday with a policy announcement at 2 p.m. ET followed up with comments by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. Investors will look for insight into the Fed’s plans regarding its bond purchases and interest rates.

Among exchange traded funds, Innovator IBD 50 (FFTY) had yet to start trading premarket Wednesday. Nasdaq 100 tracker Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ) rallied 0.3%. And the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) moved up 0.5%.

Market Rally Fades, But 3 Stocks Near Buy Points; China, Fed In Focus

Stock Market Breaks Key Support

The Nasdaq broke down sharply below its 50-day line Monday, adding more selling pressure to the major stock indexes. The S&P 500 broke support at that level Friday, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit its lowest level since June 21.

Tuesday’s The Big Picture commented, “The stock market violated important chart levels this week, and the change in character increases risk for investors. For now, it’s difficult to carry out any trades. Growth stocks need a good market in which to flourish, and that element is missing right now.”

Stock Market ETF Strategy And How To Invest

Dow Jones Stocks To Buy And Watch: Nike

Dow Jones leader Nike is tracing a flat base with a 174.48 buy point, according to IBD MarketSmith chart analysis. But shares are below their key 50-day moving average line and on a six-day losing streak following Monday’s 1.4% loss. Shares were up 0.4% premarket Wednesday.

Nike earnings are due Thursday.

Dow Jones Media Giant Bounces

Dow Jones media giant Disney bounced almost 1% premarket Wednesday, recovering a small part of Tuesday’s 4.2% dive. On Tuesday, CEO Bob Chapek said the company’s Disney+ streaming service faced headwinds in the current quarter and that investors should expect a subscriber increase in the “low single-digit millions” for Disney+. The comments were delivered at an investor conference held by Goldman Sachs.

Disney stock broke down through its key 50-day support level this week and is about 15% off its 52-week high.

Stock Market Earnings: Adobe, FedEx

After the close Tuesday, Adobe and FedEx reported quarterly earnings results.

Adobe beat Wall Street’s targets for its fiscal third quarter and guided modestly higher for the current period. The company earned an adjusted $3.11 a share on sales of $3.94 billion in the quarter ended Sept. 3. Analysts expected Adobe earnings of $3.01 a share on sales of $3.89 billion, according to FactSet. Adobe shares slid 3.7% in early morning trade.

FedEx lowered its earnings outlook for full-year 2022 after missing fiscal first-quarter earnings views, as costs to tackle pandemic disruptions to labor and supply chains rose. FedEx stock dived over 6% ahead of the open, deepening a slump.

Stocks To Buy And Watch: Chipotle, Deckers

Friday’s IBD Stock Of The Day, Chipotle Mexican Grill, is rebounding from its key 50-day moving average, though it is a two-day losing streak. Shares were unchanged premarket Wednesday. The burrito chain has been trading tightly following a post-earnings jump. Look for continued support around its 10-week line, which would be bullish for the stock’s prospects during the current market weakness. Positively, the stock’s RS line is at new highs.

According to IBD Stock Checkup, CMG stock boasts a perfect 99 IBD Composite Rating. The IBD Composite Rating identifies stocks with a blend of strong fundamental and technical characteristics.

IBD Leaderboard stock Deckers Outdoor is trying to break out past a 444.58 entry in a flat base, according to IBD MarketSmith, but is about 5% below the entry following three straight days of losses. Shares were flat premarket Wednesday. Per Leaderboard commentary, the top retail stock is below a mini-trendline entry near 433 that provided an early buy point. Its relative strength line is also near new highs.

On Jan. 25, Tesla stock hit a record-high 900.40, after climbing as much as 93% from a 466 buy point in a cup-with-handle.
