Friday Pick’em: 04/30/21

We’re smack dab in the middle of earnings season once again, and the SPY is continuing to push new highs. Let’s see if we can ride the momentum!

Not too much happened last week, other than some good earnings that still lead to price drops… Looking at you PINS and AMD. Biden did lay out the framework for his American Families Plan, and we’re right in the middle of earnings season again, but will we be brave enough to try to make a play around either?

Dan’s Stock Pick

YUM
Volume: 1.8 M
Short%: 1.24

Dan’s Friday Pick’em this week is YUM! Brands Inc, the company that owns KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell. YUM just reported their earnings on Wednesday and beat expectations for the fourth quarter in a row! The stock has been on a nice run since mid March and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down. Closing the week at a new 52 week high, we want to ride this stock and see how high it can go.


Past Pick’ems Review

Most of our picks had another solid week, but a couple are hovering around their stop losses. ATVI continued its downward trend and CVM cooled off after a great start. BUD continued showing good strength and WFC also had a great week! Hopefully we can keep it going into next week.
