Google recently joined the list of growing companies to postpone their back-to-work plans as the Covid-19 delta variant continues to spread.
Along with Google, Apple has previously extended working from home for the same reason.
With large companies postponing back to office mandates many other companies are giving their employees the option to continue to work from home.
With that said, we are keeping an eye on companies related to the stay-at-home trend as we watch for the governments continued reaction towards the more contagious delta variant.
When the pandemic first took off, tech companies like Zoom (ZM) and online retailers pushed ahead as people flocked to buy goods online to avoid brick and mortar stores.
This included companies such as, Shopify (SHOP), Chewy (CHWY), and Amazon (AMZN).
Now that investors are seeing that the back-to-normal trend could be diluted from a split in the U.S workforce staying home, we could see the stay-at-home stocks continue higher.
With that said, let’s look at the some with great potential chart setups.
Both CHWY and ZM have pulled back from all-time highs and are now trending upwards.
CHWY has the potential to run back to $100 if it holds over $87 and support from the 200-Day moving average at $83.20.
On the other hand, ZM needs to clear resistance from the 200-DMA at $378.
If it holds over the major moving average for 2 consecutive days, it will confirm an accumulation phase change.
A phase change confirmation can highly increase the odds the symbol will continue its trend in the confirmed direction.
Then we can watch for it to clear its next main resistance area at $450.
Another popular company is Teledoc (TDOC).
TDOC provides mobile healthcare services and is another one to watch as it reported earnings on July 27th and is now looking to clear over its 50-DMA at $135.50.
