Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

Based on the 1925 story of the same name by Agatha Christie,  Witness for the Prosecution  (1957) is well worth a viewing. Directed by the legendary Billy Wilder, this film pulls off the formidable courtroom drama genre (with a splash of noir elements), a concept which seems easy in theory but which is often difficult to turn into a quality...

A Surprising Choice

Given some of the recent strength in the ag complex, one would think that the grains (corn, wheat, etc.) would be faring a bit better than they have of late.  Still, on the back of an active and, at times, devastating hurricane season, combined with the increase in demand and widely-accepted health benefits of darker chocolate it is no wonder...

They Don't Need Virtual Reality in Russia

Lost in the shuffle of this bull run in equities is the rather distinguished price action in RSX, the country ETF for Russia. While it is certainly true that emerging markets, in general, have been turning in impressive action virtually all year, the recent pullbacks in India, China, and Brazil (the other three components of the BRIC acronym)...

Let's Get Ready to Roku

The streaming software and device manufacturer Roku Inc. (ROKU), which turned in a pretty good first day of trading by the way, reminds me that bulls want to see a notable uptick in virtually all forms of animal spirits here to accompany the Russell breakout.  Beyond IPOs, some more mergers & acquisitions activity is something we have noted...

The Unsinkable Conglomerates

Although it may seem as though the big, bulky media conglomerates (see: CMCSA's $178 billion market cap, for example) are the epitome of safe investments and virtually unsinkable, the same was said about the RMS Titanic before  its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. And, yet, even in this historically resilient bull market, the...

Patience and BlackBerries Are Bitter

After a disappointing summer, it is no wonder that BlackBerry bears reverted to their war chant which has worked marvelously for many years now, decrying that BBRY was bound to go the way of the rotary phone.  However, the company seems to be aware of its image and long-gone leadership status in tech from over ten years ago now. And they are at...

Carrot and Stick

The spike higher in rates today, as seen by TLT selling off rather aggressively, is sure to bring out plenty of calls for equities to buckle under that pressure.  On that note, it is worth remembering that equities are often seen as the, shall we say, less intelligent younger brother of the credit market, where the latter usually has an...
