Dow Jones futures will open on Sunday evening, along with S&P 500 futures and Nasdaq futures.

Apple (AAPL), Tesla (TSLA), Enphase Energy (ENPH) and Albemarle (ALB) are coming under increasing pressure, but are still worth watching for the future.

Tesla stock, Enphase Energy and Albemarle are on the IBD 50. Enphase and ALB stock are on the IBD Big Cap 20. Eli Lilly was Friday’s IBD Stock Of The Day.

The video embedded in the article discussed the sharp market sell-off and also analyzed Neurocrine Biosciences (NBIX), Albemarle and PDD stock.

Five Best Chinese Stocks To Watch Now

Apple Stock

Apple stock closed near weekly lows, but finished down only 0.1% to 150.54. On Wednesday, AAPL stock hit resistance near its 10-week and 40-week lines and is back near recent lows. But the relative strength line hit a new high Friday. Apple stock still has a 176.25 handle buy point, but the first test will be reclaiming its 50-day and 200-day lines.

LLY Stock

Eli Lilly stock actually rose 0.9% to 311.60 in the past week. Shares leapt nearly 5% on Thursday, following positive drug news and an analyst upgrade. LLY is stock is on the wrong side of its 50-day line, hitting resistance there Friday. But the RS line is racing higher. The drug giant has a 335.43 flat-base buy point, according to MarketSmith analysis. There’s a potential trendline entry slightly above the 50-day line, but it’s not a good time to be making any buys.

ENPH Stock

Enphase stock dived 12.1% last week to 279.49, undercutting its 50-day line modestly and just undercutting recent lows. Ideally, ENPH stock would consolidate for a time, perhaps forge a new base.

PDD Stock

Pinduoduo stock sank 8.5% to 60.08, breaking below its 21-day line and nearing its 50-day. PDD stock has given up nearly all of its gains since the Chinese e-commerce giant reported blowout results in late August, briefly breaking out.

But the RS line is still near 52-week highs. A pullback to the 50-day line could be bullish, with a new base perhaps forming.

Of course, China risks are always high, while PDD stock is an outlier among e-commerce names or Chinese stocks in general.

ALB Stock

Albemarle stock skidded 6.1% to 269.69 in the last week, but found support at its 50-day line on Friday. ALB stock is still above a 250.25 buy point from a tiny handle in early August, while round-tripping gains from a 273.78 alternate entry from a massive cup-with-handle base. There’s no clear entry for ALB stock right now.

Lithium prices are hot and will likely remain so indefinitely with EV demand rising and lithium production constrained. But there’s no question that ALB stock and other lithium plays can be very volatile, subject to big sell-offs.

Tesla Stock

Tesla stock tumbled 9.2% to 275.36, with even bigger losses from Wednesday’s peak. TSLA stock broke below its 200-day and 50-day lines, but held above recent lows. The EV giant now has a legitimate consolidation with a 316.74 buy point within a much deeper consolidation. On a weekly chart, Tesla stock has a handle entry of 313.90.

The RS line had been trending higher until late last week.

Weekly China sales data, likely out by Tuesday, may ease Tesla demand fears there or reinforce them. Third-quarter global production and deliveries data will follow in early…
