Top 5 Wireless Telecom Companies For 2016

SpaceX launched a satellite toward distant orbit on Friday after multiple delays.

The private space exploration company, headed by Tesla (TSLA) CEO Elon Musk, launched from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida at 6:35 pm ET.

SpaceX has set five different launch dates, the first of which was on February 25 — and it has halted six countdowns due to problems with the rocket fuel, weather, and even interference from a nearby boat.

But on Friday, SpaceX employees and onlookers cheered as the Falcon 9 rocket hurtled toward the sky without issue.

The mission was to deliver a massive satellite that could provide broadband internet to remote areas of the Asia-Pacific into geosynchronous orbit.

That’s no small feat. More than 22,000 miles into space, geosynchronous orbit is 100 times further than where the International Space Station orbits.

    One biopharmaceutical player that’s rapidly moving within range of triggering a major breakout trade is GTx (GTXI), which is dedicated to the discovery, development and commercialization of small molecules that selectively target hormone pathways to treat cancer, osteoporosis and bone loss, muscle loss and other serious medical condition. This stock has been hammered by the bears so far in 2013, with shares off sharply by 53%.

    If you look at the chart for GTx, you’ll notice that this stock recently gapped down sharply from over $4 to below $1.50 a share with heavy downside volume. Following that gap down, shares of GTXI have rebounded sharply and started to uptrend, with the stock moving higher from its low of $1.31 to its recent high of $1.96 a share. During that move, shares of GTXI have been consistently making higher lows and higher highs, which is bullish technical price action. That move has now pushed shares of GTXI within range of triggering a major breakout trade.

    Traders should now look for long-biased trades in GTXI if it manages to break out above some near-term overhead resistance at $1.96 a share with high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above that level with volume that hits near or above its three-month average action of 1.35 million shares. If that breakout triggers soon, then GTXI will set up to re-fill some of its previous gap down zone from August that started just above $4 a share. Some possible upside targets if GTXI gets into that gap with volume are $2.50 to $3 a share, or possibly even $3.50 a share.

    Traders can look to buy GTXI off any weakness to anticipate that breakout and simply use a stop that sits right below some key near-term support at $1.50 a share. One can also buy GTXI off strength once it takes out $1.96 a share with volume and then simply use a stop that sits a comfortable percentage from your entry point.

Top 5 Wireless Telecom Companies To Invest In Right Now

FedEx (FDX) is scheduled to release its earnings next week–and RBC’s John Barnes and team aren’t expecting great news:

FedExreports 3FQ/16 (ended February 2016) results on March 16 after market close…We are trimming our 3FQ/16 EPS estimates to reflect higher than expected peak season costs. We also expect the company to rein in FY/16 EPS guidance when it reports. Accordingly, we are cautious onFedEx into earnings next week…

FedExoperations negatively impacted by severe weather and a last minute surge in volumes the week before Christmas. In order to cope, the company ran operations of Christmas and the day after. We believe this reduced Ground margins by 70 bps. Our sense is that this was less of an issue for the Express operation…

Mid-point of guidance likely to move lower. Our new FY/16 EPS estimate of $10.43 sits near the low end of the $10.40-$10.90 guidance range. We expect management to both lower guidance and tighten the range to $10.40-10.60 even after incorporating the benefit from share repurchase activity.

    The latest implied forward rate forecast from Kamakura Corporation shows projected 10-year U.S. Treasury yields differing -0.07% to 0.03% from last week while fixed rate mortgage yields varied by -0.01% to 0.08%. Mortgage yields, determined by the Monday through Wednesday weekly survey of the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, lag Treasury movements simply because of the 3-day yield calculation used in the Primary Mortgage Market Survey. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield is projected to rise from 2.92% at Thursday’s close (down 0.06% from last week) to 3.374% (down 0.06% from last week) in one year.
