February CPI, ORCL Is Growing Again, NVDA

| | |

This morning at 8:30am EST the BLS will report the February CPI. As you can see in table above, estimates are for headline to be +0.4% and core +0.3% month over month. Anything notably higher than that is likely to result in a selloff and anything notably lower a rally.

Oracle (ORCL) reported earnings Monday after the close. For many years the stock was dead money because it had no growth. But with their move to the cloud, that has changed. Overall revenue increased 7% and cloud revenue increased 25% to $5.1 billion. This is a stock I like and have owned in the last few years but with it +13% in the premarket I wouldn’t chase it today.

Last, continue to keep an eye on Nvidia (NVDA) after Friday’s nasty reversal. It lost another 2% Monday and if it continues to move lower will put pressure on the major indexes because of its size and how much of the S&P’s YTD gain has come from it.
