There Was A Big Rotation In The Market On Wednesday: PreMarket Prep Recap For Feb. 6, 2020

The market is back to all-time highs as the coronavirus continues to spread and China agreed to rollback some tariffs on U.S. goods.

But those headlines are not what caught our traders’ attention on Thursday’s PreMarket Prep. Instead, it was a rotation from growth stocks to value stocks.

“We saw an extreme move from growth to value yesterday,” said co-host Dennis Dick. “On a day where the Dow was up over 400 points, you saw stocks like Shopify going in the red yesterday, you saw stocks like Square going in the red yesterday. It was a very weak day for growth. I think that continues today. So if you’re seeing rallies in your growth names, I think those things are selling opportunities.”

Dennis specifically highlighted the big trend reversal days in IBM (NYSE: IBM) and salesforce.com, inc. (NYSE: CRM).

“A lot of times, the rotation just trumps all. So you can have a [earnings] beat, [revenue] beat, and a [guidance] raise, if the rotation is going the other way, the stock can actually go down. Sentiment will trump all. Sentiment turned yesterday, so that’s telling me that those things are now short-term sells. So now I look for strength in those high P/E multiples to get short.”
