Banks Lead Market Advance

The S&P gapped up and extended, hitting 1326 this morning. 1333 is the January high. Today’s rally has been lead by the banks, we’ve talked lately a lot about them.

Goldman Sachs (GS) almost hit my $115-116 price target.

Morgan Stanley (MS) hit almost $19.69 and still looks good.

JP Morgan (JPM) lagging a bit but okay.

Today I bought AIG for the first time in probably a year. It has a nice tight pattern. If it can get and stay above $25.80-25.90, perhaps it can get back in play for a bit. I think I’m reaching for stocks to play right now, which is never a good sign for the market.

Tech is mixed.

Amazon (AMZN) had had no real bounce. It held $170-173 for now.

Apple (AAPL) went negative and still hangs around.

Google (GOOG) is just floating around.

VMWare (VMW) looks okay.

Groupon (GRPN) gave us a nice add on play from yesterday. I’d like to see it close above $21.

Microsoft (MSFT) knocks on the $30 door, which is the level we have talked about many times.

I had to sell my Molycorp (MCP) quick as former MCP bull JPM put out a cautious note. On that note I sold my REE as well after a three day up move.
