Best Buy (BBY) is approaching a key resistance level.  If this level is surpassed a breakout could occur.

BBY is one of the largest consumer electronics retailers in the U.S. Its stores provide computing and mobile phones, home theater products, gaming hardware and software as well as appliances such as dishwashers, ovens, refrigerators, and blenders.

The company is focused on accelerating online sales growth, improving its multichannel customer experience, and developing new in-store and in-home service offerings. While BBY saw increased demand for its products and services in the final quarter of 2020, management expects margins to decrease due to higher supply chain costs.

BBY had $5.5 billion in cash on hand as of the end of January. This compares to only $100 million in short-term debt. The company has seen steady earnings and revenue growth over the past year. Analysts expect sales to rise 24.1% year over year during the current quarter. Earnings are forecasted to surge 92.5% during the same time period.

BBY’s stock is currently undervalued with a trailing P/E of 17.66. Though the stock has been surging higher since early March. This has resulted in a Momentum Grade of A in our POWR Ratings system and represented in the chart below.

Take a look at the 1-year chart of BBY below with added notations:

After falling to the $100 area again last month, BBY has rebounded and made its way back up towards its 52-week highs. The stock has recently stalled at the $124 resistance (green), just as it has done multiple times previously.

A solid close above that $124 area should lead to much higher prices for BBY. A possible long position on the stock would be on a breakout above the $124 level with a protective stop placed under it.

Could the Fed’s Rate Reversal Lead to More Volatility in the Stock Market?

Inflation has become a recurring theme in my comments due to a notable rise in inflation metrics and how they have affected the S&P 500 (SPY). The Fed has consistently spoken of inflation being transitory over the past couple of months, which has resulted in investors becoming less concerned over higher prices. But it appeared that the Fed reversed course as it is now, indicating it would raise rates ahead of schedule. This created more volatility in the markets leading to a tough day on Friday. But, if you look closer at their remarks, not everything is as it seems. I will expand on my point below. But first, let's recap the past week in the markets. Read on below…
