Friday Pick’em: 04/09/21

Another week has come and gone and two of the three major indexes hit new highs! Read on to see what we’ve picked for next week.

Coming off of Easter weekend, the S&P 500 and DOW hit new all times highs, and the NASDAQ is inching up towards its as well. While the broader markets have been rising overall, a couple of the sectors that had been enjoying huge gains in the last few months did not fair as well. Real estate was down 1.23% and Energy was down 2.59% (-7.52% in the last month!). As expected with the markets hitting new highs, our previous picks also did well.

Our Stock Pick

Volume: 54 M
Short%: 3.42

Our Friday Pick’em this week is Palantir Technologies, a software company that builds platforms for commercial and government institutions. After debuting in late September, the stock enjoyed a nice run, peaking at $45 a share a couple months ago. This stock has since settled out after bottoming out just under $22 and looks poised to start moving again. Cathie Woods has been buying up shares like crazy in recent weeks, so we’re looking to follow suit!

Past Pick’ems Review

As previously stated, most of our picks ended the week positive with the exception of BGS, which triggered its stop loss on Friday. CNXC continues to push new highs while SAP looks to finally be coming back to life.
