The Winners 📈

△ #1 S&P 500 – Moderna reclaimed the top ranking on the ST Top 25 S&P 500 list from Devon Energy in Week 50. $MRNA marched 14.68% higher while $DVN dipped 9.72%. 

$MRNA jumped 5.81% on Monday after collaborating with the Australian Government to create a state-of-the-art messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine production facility in Victoria, Australia including access to Moderna’s mRNA development engine. 

The facility is expected to manufacture up to 100 million mRNA vaccine doses yearly after it opens in 2024.

Here’s the weekly chart:

$MRNA is up 182.2% YTD.

△ #25 S&P 500 – CF Industries Holdings hopped onto the ST Top 25 S&P 500 List as a Freshman in Week 50. The fertilizer company zipped 5.95% and took the 25th spot on the list. 

CF Industries raised full-year guidance and now expects adjusted EBITDA for 2021 to be in the range of $2.65-2.85 billion, up from the previously expected number of $2.2-2.4 billion. 

$CF closed positive every day this week and sits less than 5% away from all-time highs.

Here’s the daily chart:

$CF is up 67.42% YTD.


The Sinners 📉

▼ #24 R2K – Marathon Digital Holdings gave up 11 spots on the ST Top 25 R2K List after diving 16.28%. The bitcoin mining company is now ranked twenty-fourth on the list. 

$MARA announced on Wednesday that Executive Chairman Merrick Okamoto plans to retire at the end of 2021. Okamoto will be succeeded by Fred Thiel, $MARA’s current CEO.

Thiel replaced Okamoto as CEO back in April so it only seems fitting.

The stock has closed negative five weeks in a row and is 55.5% off from its high close on Nov 9.

Here’s the weekly chart:

$MARA is still up 224.28% YTD.

▼ #2 S&P 500 – Devon Energy Corp surrendered its top spot to Moderna on the ST Top 25 S&P 500 List after dropping 9.72%. $DVN was the weakest stock on the list.

$DVN had a poor start to the week, plummeting 5.45% on Monday. The energy stock finished red four days this week as the energy ETF $XLE toppled 5% this week.

$DVN is up 147.94% YTD. Is more weakness to come or can Devon Energy shake it off? Place your bets…

▼ #23 N100 – Tesla Inc tumbled 8.3% in Week 50 as the ST Top 25 N100’s second-biggest loser.

$TSLA is retesting its prior-high from Jan 26. Can this level hold as support or will the EV maker continue to fall? Time will tell.

$TSLA has gained 32.15% in 2021.
