Stocks Edge Back Up: Short Covering or Sustainable Rebound?

By  +Follow June 27, 2013 1:23PM
Tickers Mentioned:

SqueezeThe market opened up the week with a sharp move lower, but has been gradually working its way back up. Is this mini-rally a sign of strength or a trap for bulls? Equities.com asked Toni Turner of TrendStar Trading Group her thoughts in this week's interview, and where she thinks the opportunities are in this market.

EQ: The market got a scare earlier this week sparked by significant concerns coming out of China. Despite some intraday volatility, the major indexes seem to be edging up again. What are your thoughts on the movement so far?

Turner: We have two primary concerns. We have China's potential credit bubble, and we have a sudden rise in interest rates in the U.S. that can potentially give a belly punch to our economy just as it is showing signs of getting on its feet. To me, the move down is understandable, but now we will see if Monday was the so called "bottom" of this move lower on the S&P 500, and if the rebound we are enjoying now is sustainable.

We also had some good news this week with the Case-Shiller index and durable goods orders, as well as other economic reports. Of course, some of the recent bounce in the past few days has been due to a short squeeze. So I don't assume this short term rally is necessarily a signal that everything is OK now. I'll need at least a few more days to see if this is simply short covering or if investors are really getting back into the market.

We have to remember two things: the market typically moves higher heading into a holiday—July 4 is next Thursday—and we are closing out the second quarter, which means there's window dressing right now as we close it out. So next week being a holiday week is going to be shortened and it may be a bit flat, with many institutional traders and investors on vacation. But I believe the week of July 8, we're going to get a reality check.

EQ: Longer-term investors may not like the short-term volatility that we're starting to experience in the market, but for active day traders, does this mean more opportunities to take advantage of?

Turner: Absolutely. Short-term traders like volume and volatility. That's our mantra. We can't make money in a flat market. To that point, the last move down and then the quick rebound off of the low gave nimble traders quite a bit to work with.

EQ: Regional bank stocks have been getting more attention, as you tweeted recently. Is this because they stand to benefit if and when the Fed begins to taper the stimulus program?

Turner: That's part of it. Naturally, if interest rates move higher, banks as a whole, will benefit as they can charge customers higher interest rates on loans. Additionally, the Case-Shiller 20 City index came in this week 12.1 percent improved in home prices over the same period last year. Regional banks typically benefit from improving home prices. Plus, we have an infusion of foreign buyers coming into the U.S., mainly from Asia, who are buying up properties, and I know for a fact that certainly not all of them are paying cash. Many of them are financing these purchases. That stands to benefit regional banks.

Also, if you noticed, regional banks did not fall off a cliff when the market moved lower. If you look at the SPDR S&P Regional Banking ETF (KRE), when the market moved lower, the KRE remained above its 50-day moving average, and many of the banks in that space have moved higher over the last few days.

EQ: What are some other stock sectors and industry groups that look appealing to you? Which ones do you want to avoid?

Turner: I do like the regional banks and the KRE on a pullback to between $33 and $33.25. It jumped up over the last couple of days.

If bond prices actually find a low here, and start to rise in the next few days, I might tiptoe into the iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate (IYR). Mostly though, except for quick trades, I'm standing on the sidelines and I'm waiting for the market to decide what it's going to do next.
