StockTwits 50 Notables

  • $EOPN was one of the few stocks that remained green in yesterday’s carnage. Guess what. Today, it was up another 4% and made new all-time high. Relative strength in big red days for the markets matters a lot.
  • $AZPN and $APOG managed to hold above their rising 20dmas and are setting up again
  • Strong housing data gave a boost to homebuilders. $PHM gained 5.6%, but it will need a lot more time to heal and potentially build a new base
  • $JAZZ beat the estimates and it looks higher after the bell
