Having a Good Stretch

Energy has been enjoying a good couple of weeks directly in the face of the U.S. Dollar rally, making the bounce for USO and XLE all the more impressive as other commodities and miners corrected.  Still, it is worth noting that energy titan and, arguably, a good "tell" for the XLE, Exxon Mobile, is signaling some short-term caution today.  On...

Losers Getting the Love

The theme we saw at various intervals in recent weeks, of beaten-down high beta issues like GPRO TWTR catching a bid and exuding relative strength, is persisting the first day back from holiday.  In addition to TWTR, we have the likes of LNKD and some badly-beaten biotech outperforming. TASR has enjoyed something of a renaissance of late, too. ...

Holiday Hangover Slowing Things Down

Despite a hefty premium for the CPXX buyout by JAZZ, and CLF surging on the deal with MT, upside momentum in the broad market was initially blunted out of the gate this morning.  AMZN is still acting well among leaders, but other names like CMG may be vulnerable to cracking again, on top of some glaring relative weakness out of MCD SBUX. ...

Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas, Memorial Day Edition

There are many great ones from which to choose on Memorial Day Weekend, but I still say that  The Best Years of Our Lives  (1946) presents a great tribute to those who lost their lives in combat by, ironically, showing how much life has changed for those veterans who survived the second world war. The story is gripping, heartbreaking, but...

Was Uncle Junior Really Out of it This Whole Time?

One of the recurring themes of the market over the last few years has been the perennial underperformance by "junior" marquee issues, meaning they have institutional sponsorship for growth prospects but not nearly as much as, say, AMZN GOOGL.  Specifically, the likes of LNKD P TWTR YELP have destroyed a fair amount of capital without batting an...

No Ouija Board Necessary

We don't need an Ouija Board or any type of séance to know that the market is still acting fairly standard for the week leading up to the unofficial start of summer and a long, holiday weekend. Stocks are drifting again as I write this, with mostly mild digestion of recent gains, albeit with the financials lagging a bit. I have a few long...

Twitter Potheads Playing Hacky Sack at the $14 Level

Billionaire investor, not to mention increasingly controversial Silicon Valley legend, Peter Thiel, went on CNBC a few years back and chided Twitter as being a “horribly mismanaged” company with a lot of "pot-smoking" going on. At the time Thiel made those statements, the stock for Twitter was trading around $50 per share.  Just yesterday, for...

Play Safe with Baba Booey

After a spirited rally yesterday over $80 resistance, BABA is being slammed down roughly 4% this morning on the back of an SEC accounting investigation.  While it is true that risk is omnipresent on Wall Street, China issues should be generally viewed as slightly higher risk plays than run-of-the-mill domestic stocks. True, we have seen plenty...
