What do farm and ranch supplies have in common with semiconductors?

They are part of stock market sectors on the move with some run into earnings possibilities.

Companies that sell farm and ranch supplies have proven resilient through the pandemic economic downturn. Expectations are they will continue this strength with continued sales and earnings as the economy further regains its footing.

Tickers within semiconductors are showing signs of heating up as they approach earnings reports following a period of lackluster performance. Simpler’s traders aren’t betting the farm on semiconductors, but are looking for specific tickers with breakout potential.

A run into earnings play presents traders with an opportunity for long setups with more predictable price movement to the upside as earnings approach. This is a foundational play among Simpler’s traders.

Setups to the upside in these sectors are welcome in a market that is showing uncertainty and overextension that gives pause to our team as they guard against a sharp pullback.
