Key salary

Microsoft’s earnings and modest revenue exceeded fiscal Q1 views. Cloud computing revenue led the way but missed at least some targets. The software giant then warned of Q2 revenue on advertising, PC and currency accounts.

MSFT stock sold in overnight trading. Shares rose 1.4% to 250.66 on Tuesday, coming in at the 50-day line. But Microsoft stock is well below the 200-day line and is still not far from bear-market lows. Cloud software stocks fell on Microsoft’s results.

Google earnings and revenue both missed. YouTube revenue fell, while online advertising rose just 2.5%. Cloud-computing revenues have exceeded estimates. GOOGL shares fell in extended action. Shares rose 1.9% Tuesday to 104.48, also closing at the 50-day line. But like Microsoft, Google shares are not far from bear-market lows, and some distance from the 200 day.

Microsoft and Google’s cloud computing results could foreshadow Amazon Web Services’ headline growth (AMZN) earnings on Thursday night. AMZN stock fell slightly overnight.

Enphase earnings comfortably beat as revenue breaks opinion. ENPH stock rose strongly overnight. Enphase stock was already up 4.85% at 265.59 on Tuesday, moving back above the 21-day line. Shares could be starting to build to the right of a new base but are still below the 50-day line.

First Solar (FSLR), which reported Thursday night, was little changed on Enphase earnings.

Chipotle’s earnings beat, with same-store sales and impressive margins. CMG stock turned slightly lower in extended trading amid concerns about future margins. Shares advanced 2.5% on Tuesday to 1,584.02. Chipotle stock is approaching the 50-day line as it works to the right of a short base with a buy point of 1,754.66, according to MarketSmith analysis.

Market gathering analysis

The stock market rally continued to gain momentum, with Treasury yields falling and the US dollar providing a tailwind for stocks.

The Nasdaq and small caps led Tuesday’s gains. The Dow Jones lagged on Tuesday but remained the leader of the rally, pushing above the 50-day line. The S&P 500 and Russell 2000 are approaching this key level. The Nasdaq still has some distance to reach the 50-day mark. But the S&P, Russell and Nasdaq are all above their 10-week line.

It is still unclear if this is just another bear-market rally. Will the S & P 500 and then the Nasdaq move decisively above their 50-day moving averages. But if so, will the major indices clear the 200 day?

On the plus side, a number of growth stocks showed bullish action, including Shockwave, DoubleVerify (DV) and Roblox (RBLX).

These people join medical leaders, including biotechs, health insurance companies and drug distributors. Auto parts dealers are doing well.

Energy stocks continue to perform well.

Treasury yields, earnings and economic data could weaken the nascent rally.

Microsoft and Google reported Tuesday night, and Meta Platform (META), Apple ( AAPL ) and Amazon earnings later this week.

It’s no coincidence that the stock of Microsoft, Google, Amazon and Apple all closed Tuesday at or just below their 50-day line. Even Meta stock, which nearly hit a low in Friday’s bear market, is returning toward its 50-day low.

Microsoft, Google and Amazon are all pulling back from this key level. Futures signal the S&P 500 and Nasdaq will also do so at the open on Wednesday.
