Positive Transits for Gilead

Transiting Saturn conjoining the Gilead First-Trade Sun could provide a more favorable entry point for a long position here. While Saturn is associated with contraction, it can provide a basis for further price advancement in a case like this.

And that’s not all.

The potential for higher prices ahead and an increase in speculative energy is indicated by transiting Neptune conjoining the First-Trade Ascendant.

On top of that, transiting Venus is forming a quincunx to First-Trade Neptune. That’s very nice for a drug company!

In other words, this looks like a solid setup for a good buying opportunity for this stock.

Yesterday we added Gilead to our watch list for our members at FinancialCyclesWeekly.com.

Our astro-trading trend chart shows why. Note the recent price gap upward.

Geocentric planetary price lines for Mars and Jupiter in the eighth harmonic help reveal the trading structure for Gilead.

All Eyes On Amazon Earnings

Amazon plans to release its third-quarter earnings after the close on Thursday, October 26. We reviewed its prospects in the October 22 issue of the FinancialCyclesWeekly.com newsletter.

The overall trading action in this stock has been quite weak since its huge earnings miss last quarter as the stock hit significant Chiron resistance, so a lot is riding on this new report.

Amazon Price Chart
The trading action for Amazon (AMZN) adheres closely to the planetary price lines provided by geocentric Mercury and Chiron in the ninth harmonic. Note the high hitting resistance on a first-harmonic Chiron line at the last earnings announcement.

 

Analysts expect a loss of 2 cents per share with revenues of $41.97 billion, which would mean sales growth of 28%, but an EPS plunge of nearly 104%.

What Does The Astrology Say About Amazon?

Transiting Saturn is in opposition to First-Trade Kronos on Thursday, pushing AMZN to secure its status at the top of the e-commerce heap. Its position as the number one player online is clearly facing some major challenges. And with Mars crossing the First-Trade IC and a Sun/Jupiter conjunction semi-square First-Trade Mars, there are clear signs of successful action and positive performance.

Amazon 90-Degree Dial
This 90-degree dial for the Amazon (AMZN) First-Trade horoscope has the red pointer aligned with the transiting conjunction of the Sun and Jupiter at the time that AMZN earnings will be released on October 26.

But when we look at the AMZN First-Trade horoscope on the 90-degree dial with the pointer on the transiting Sun/Jupiter conjunction, the indications seem mixed.

Powerful Developments & Significant Evolution

The activation of the Pluto/Midheaven axis signals powerful developments and significant evolution. But Admetos/Vulcanus suggests major obstacles ahead, with lots of potential resistance to the company’s plans for expansion.

Those challenges may focus on Amazon’s efforts to open up new locations for its operations (Jupiter/Saturn). And with Apollon/Admetos also in play, there may be some interesting compromises for the company in the works.

So here’s the bottom line.

I’m definitely looking for Amazon to beat estimates on October 26, and there’s a distinct possibility of a nice price pop in the stock immediately after that.

But even so, the long-term outlook may not be so rosy. I’m not sure that we should expect the good news coming from an earnings report to prevent further trading obstacles ahead.

General Electric Transneptunians

isioWhen we took at look at the impact of Transneptunian factors on the performance of General Electric (GE) stock in a recent issue of the FinancialCyclesWeekly newsletter, we described this stock as “a boring blue chip”.

While it’s true that General Electric doesn’t often offer traders much excitement, it’s still a stock that’s worth keeping an eye on, especially if we’re trying to get some perspective on the overall prospects for the market as a whole.

Gеnеrаl Elесtrіс Stосk Returns

The General Elесtrіс Cоmраnу is one оf thе lаrgеѕt соmраnіеѕ in thе world. It has often bееn a bеllwеthеr stock used аѕ a gauge оf the оvеrаll hеаlth оf thе ѕtосk mаrkеt in general.

Onе оf thе reasons it has been given this role is the dіvеrѕіtу of Gеnеrаl Elесtrіс’ѕ products аnd ѕеrvісеѕ. Thе соmраnу іѕ іnvоlvеd in nеаrlу еvеrу market ѕеgmеnt frоm lіghtіng, tо fіnаnсіаl рrоduсtѕ, to thе aviation іnduѕtrу, to hеаlthсаrе, to thе tеlеvіѕіоn іnduѕtrу, аnd fіnаllу to the еnеrgу ѕесtоr. As a result, Gеnеrаl Electric’s profits and losses often соіnсіdе with thе оvеrаll health оf the есоnоmу as a whole.

Kronos at the Last General Electric Stock Split

Sіnсе 1975, General Electric hаѕ had five ѕtосk ѕрlіtѕ, with thе mоѕt rесеnt one bеіng a 3-fоr-1 ѕрlіt on May 8, 2000, when transiting Kronos turned the GE First-Trade Uranus/Poseidon opposition into a potent T-square as transiting Neptune conjoined the GE First-Trade Descendant.

General Electric Stock Split Horoscope
The General Electric stock price responds to planetary transits. Note the alignments of outer planets and Transneptunians on the date of a 3-for-1 stock split.

Durіng that tіmе, thе General Electric Cоmраnу hаѕ роѕtеd 25 positive-rеturnіng years аnd 14 years of nеgаtіvе returns. Ovеr hаlf оf the positive years rеѕultеd іn rеturnѕ greater thаn 25%, wіth thе highest thrее bеіng 65% іn 1982, 52% іn 1999, and 48% in 1997. Thе wоrѕt thrее реrfоrmіng уеаrѕ wеrе (-56%) in 2008, (-39%) in 2002, and (-16%) іn 2001. Except for an 11% loss in 1991, all thе rеmаіnіng losing уеаrѕ were (-10%) оr lеѕѕ.

A nісе еxаmрlе of thе ѕіmіlаrіtу оf General Electric’s stock performance аnd the оvеrаll ѕtосk market саn be done through a simple соmраrіѕоn оf thе уеаrlу rеturnѕ оf thе Dow Jones Induѕtrіаl Indеx (DJIA) аnd thе yearly rеturnѕ оf GE. Between 1975 and 2006, General Electric аnd the DJIA have mоvеd іn thе ѕаmе direction еvеrу уеаr except for 1994, whеn GE lоѕt 3% and thе DJIA gained 2%. In the eight years since then, the correspondence hasn’t been quite as strong, with GE losing ground in 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2014, which we all years in which the DJIA posted gains. Even, so, аѕ аn investor іt іѕ a good іdеа to kеер a сlоѕе wаtсh оn thе performance оf Gеnеrаl Elесtrіс ѕtосk.

Diversity and Long-Term Investment

Through іtѕ dіvеrѕе rаngе оf рrоduсtѕ, GE almost becomes a mini-index by іtѕеlf. From a very pragmatic perspective, General Electric is a great stock for long-term investors, mainly because its dіvеrѕіtу рrоvіdеѕ some built-in рrоtесtіоn аgаіnѕt many of thе vоlаtіlе uрѕ аnd dоwnѕ that рlаguе mаnу individual ѕtосkѕ.

Of соurѕе, if you’re playing the market for the long-term еvеn GE ѕhоuld bе раrt оf a wеll-bаlаnсеd роrtfоlіо rаthеr thаn a sole holding, with all your eggs in the General Electric basket. While іt mау bе “ѕаfеr” and mоrе ѕtаblе than many іndіvіduаl stocks, іt ѕtіll has more rіѕk than a wеll-dіvеrѕіfіеd роrtfоlіо.

 

The Home Depot Identity Theft & The April Eclipse

Back in September The Home Depot admitted that the company’s customer record database had been hacked, apparently starting in April and continuing until early September of this year.

It was big news, of course, but it somehow didn’t seem all that shocking, since The Home Depot was just the latest big company to reveal massive problems with data breaches and major identity theft impacting its customers — other firms include Target, Neiman Marcus, Dairy Queen and JPMorgan Chase.

The shattering of privacy has become widespread and seems to be well orchestrated, with the government security apparatus providing little defense — mainly because government agencies seem just as intent on grabbing citizens’ private data.

But now things have escalated even more.

HomeDepotHack

Just yesterday The Home Depot admitted that its big identity theft invasion had resulted in the theft of more than 53 million email addresses. The company insisted, of course, that no really important information about its customers had been stolen, like passwords for store accounts. But in spite of its reassurances, there’s little doubt about the seriousness of the attack.

HomeDepotSolarEclipse

That’s where some astrological insights are helpful. Remember that the security breach and identity theft took place in April, when there was a powerful solar eclipse. As this presentation of the 90-degree dial version of the Home Depot First-Trade horoscope illustrates, that eclipse activated the Neptune/Kronos midpoint in the HD chart.

That planetary picture represents a situation in which there is large-scale deception going on, with big misunderstandings about consequences. It’s also the astrological signature of incompetent management.

This is a grim reminder of the power of eclipses, of course, but it’s also a warning — even if you haven’t used a credit card at Target or The Home Depot during the past year, you’re very much at risk of identity theft and the total loss of privacy.

As Brian Mills and others have pointed out, this is tantamount to a state of war — but it’s a war directed against civilians, very much in keeping with the continuing atmosphere of dangerous confrontation that characterizes this time of Uranus/Pluto squares.

Google’s Artistic Impulse Reveals Its Secrets

A remarkable combination of planetary transits whacked Google’s First-Trade horoscope on Thursday, sending the price of the GOOG stock plunging.

Uranus and Chiron were the heavy hitters in the equation, with Mars adding some extra energy to the mix

The event triggered by the planetary line-up was a premature release of a negative earnings report for the company, but that wasn’t all that happened.

On the same day, Google released an amazing series of photos taken inside the company’s top-secret data centers, showing some of the massive arrays of equipment that manage the search engine’s huge data flow.

The astrological event that provoked the photo release was transiting Mars conjoining Cupido in the GOOG First-Trade horoscope, a signature of “artistic activity”.

And that was what was so surprising about the pictures that Google released– the images themselves are gorgeous!

Here are a few samples:

 

“These colorful pipes send and receive water for cooling our facility. Also pictured is a G-Bike, the vehicle of choice for team members to get around outside our data centers.”

 

“Our Council Bluffs data center provides over 115,000 square feet of space. We make the best out of every inch, so you can use services like Search and YouTube in the most efficient way possible.”

 

“Inside our campus network room, routers and switches allow our data centers to talk to each other. The fiber optic networks connecting our sites can run at speeds that are more than 200,000 times faster than a typical home Internet connection. The fiber cables run along the yellow cable trays near the ceiling.”

“Hovering above the floor in Council Bluffs, Iowa, the scale of our data center there begins to take shape. Huge steel beams both support the structure and help distribute power.”

“Our pipes aren’t the only colorful things at our data centers. These cables are organized by their specific hue. On the floor, this can make things less technical: “Hand me a blue one.”
