Netflix subscribers drop
Netflix earnings topped the number of views, while revenue fell. But the real news is that Netflix subscribers decreased by 200,000 in the first quarter, its first decline in more than a decade.

Market Rise Analysis
The stock market rally showed some fighting on Tuesday. The S&P 500 moved again above the 50-day line and the 21-day exponential moving average. Dow Jones rebounded from 50 days towards 200 days.
The Nasdaq rose again near its 50th day. The Nasdaq crossed the 50-day line and the S&P500 above the 200-day line would be key steps. Next, the major indices will need to surpass the highs of late March, which will likely coincide with the Nasdaq’s 200-day recovery.
A tech-led market rally despite another jump in Treasury yields is positive, but that hasn’t been the trend for the past several weeks. How will stocks react to a 3% return on a 10-year return? The October 2018 peak of 3.25%, a 12-year high, is not far off.
Stock futures point to some weakness overnight, although it’s unclear if that will spread beyond shares of Netflix, Disney and the streaming world.

What are you doing now
Again, don’t get too excited for a good day in a weak market. The rising market remains under pressure and divisive. Investors should continue to focus on the leading areas of the market. You might consider taking positions in travel or medical products, for example, to diversify holdings.
But exposure should generally remain modest. Until the market rally shows broad and sustained strength, investors should not be aggressive. Keep working on your watchlists, looking for stocks that are setting up or falling higher. This can help you catch up on emerging leadership before you move on.
