Featured Analysis

Hedge Fund trading activity

Motorcar Parts (MPAA)

MPAA engages in the manufacture, remanufacture, and distribution of automotive parts.

  • Total Revenue increased 5.04% since last year and increased 23.13% since last quarter.

  • MPAA is trading in the middle of its 52-week range and above its 200-day simple moving average.

  • It’s currently trading at its 12, 15 and 20-year lows. It may serve as a pivot point for this stock.

  • The price of MPAA shares has increased by $0.20 since the market last closed. This is a 2.30% rise.

  • Hedge Funds decreased holdings by 40K shares since last quarter. However, it is not significant given that they remain invested at 3mil shares.

Crypto Trade Ideas

Polkadot (DOT) looks promising with the same breakout pattern in play as Solana (SOL). I would consider pull-backs as a buying opportunity with the first target at $14 and a 25% stop-loss.
