JAMES’ NOTES:

DRI – After just breaking out on Monday, shares had some decent follow-through action yesterday with continued gains with volume and a new all-time high close.

TWLO – Shares are pulling back a bit, yet remain above our noted 1st SUPPORT of $136. A break below there would be the first concern.

LLI – Gaped down the day after breaking out, yet since has gradually traded higher. Did close at a new all-time high yesterday, however, volume was well below average.

MMC – Decent gains yesterday to a new all-time high close. Shares remain above support.

JCOM – This was an earnings breakout. Those always do carry more risk. Shares have been struggling, and actually triggered their first SELL signal on 5/13 with the above average volume declines and a close below the 50-day.

The 5/16 gains are very encouraging, yet do not completely negate the recent technical weakness.

TEAM – This stock actually broke out in the middle of the worst week of 2019 for the market. Shares had an impressive three days of sharp gains with a huge increase in volume as the stock moved up from its 50-day moving average and cleared our TRIGGER PRICE of $117.16.

Since then the stock has been volatile in a tough market, yet for the most part, shares are holding on to their twice-claimed +10% gains as they have maintained our 1st SUPPORT.
