Todd Harrison: GW Pharmaceuticals Takes a Break


Momentum stocks, including the once-hot GW Pharmeuticals, are down today.

Here are my latest thoughts on the market, in no particular order:

GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH) is sitting on its 50-day moving average in and around $62.50. The 200-day, for purposes of perspective, is down at $36.

I sold my stock this week between $66 and $71 and will look for the right time and price to enter again.

NYSE internals are 2:1 negative while Nasdaq-100 (INDEXNASDAQ:NDX) breadth is 4:1 negative, which is helping to drive another "S's over N's" outperformance day.

In a world of high-frequency trading, the markets can turn on a dime; given the current price action and internals heading into the weekend, it's the bears' ball to fumble into the close.

The iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology Index ETF (NASDAQ:IBB) is slipping now, too.

The bulls will argue that the market is simply deflating the frothiest sectors (high-beta tech) as the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) is less than 2% from all-time highs. That's true, with the caveat that these names led us higher and they may well lead us lower. (NASDAQ:AMZN) down $55 (or 16.7%) from its overnight high, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ:TSLA) down $10, Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) down $15, Priceline (NASDAQ:PCLN) down $42; just another day at the office.

Days like today yearn for some trading commandments, and here they are.

As always, I hope this finds you well.
