Tesla (TSLA) traded up around 3% early Monday. Elsewhere, Dow Jones tech leaders Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft (MSFT) were both up less than 1% after today’s stock market open.

In a volatile stock market environment, Dow Jones leaders Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Merck (MRK) and UnitedHealth — as well as BJ’s Wholesale Club (BJ), Dollar Tree (DLTR), Northrop Grumman (NOC) and Quanta Services (PWR) — are among the stocks to watch.

Stock Market Rally

On Friday, the stock market posted strong gains, as the Nasdaq rose 1.8% and the Dow Jones industrials surged 2.1%.

Friday’s The Big Picture column commented, “Individual stock action has been improving in recent days. That’s a good thing, but when it comes to new buys, think risk management and keep positions small to start. Don’t raise exposure too quickly, especially amid plenty of uncertainty and not much in the way of setups.”
