Setting the Background for Winter

I suspect it will take at least several more sessions if not a week or two before we see all of the larger market players and fund managers back at their desks. Still, the potential rotations for the new year remain promising.  As an example, the ag stocks popped during the holidays but immediately gave back those gains. Instead of...

Tripping Over Themselves to Buy Drugs

The XBI, ETF for the small and mid-cap biotechnology issues, is up an impressive 4% as I write this. Before rushing out to buy all biotech across the board, it is worth remembering this space had been relatively brutalized compared to the broad market since mid-November. So, a bit of a relief rally should not come as a surprise to being the new...

Clean Plays Off a Dirty Move in Tesla

The chart for Tesla Motors had been steadying improving since early-December. Last night, the firm announced it missed its fourth-quarter vehicle delivery target. Initially, the stock was lower, but not by much. This morning, any hint of weakness was promptly gobbled up by buyers, as the stock is higher by more than 3.5% as I write this.  If...

January Special Effects

The so-called "January Effect" was seen in a variety of stocks and sectors today, even as the broad market faded along with crude well off session highs. Some beaten-down names into the end of 2016, such as consumer titans NKE and UAA, are off to a good start in 2017. At the same time, the likes of TWLO just keep getting worse. So, before we...

Winter Red Coming for Your Head

Crude oil's sharp downside reversal this morning looks to have correlated to the notable fade in equities, with the major indices still considerably off their morning highs. The VIX, however, is still in the red as I write this. Nonetheless, the crude oil reversal is worth monitoring for the sake of equities and how sensitive they seemed to be...

A Modern Way to Collect Payments

A gap up to begin the new year may very well give bulls a chance to salvage the traditional "Santa Rally" period, which spills over into tomorrow's session as well.  Seasonal trends aside, a notable winner out of the gate this morning is PayPal, higher after receiving an upgrade earlier.  PYPL is a name we have previously looked at for Members,...

Here's to Closing Out 2016 the Way We Will Approach 2017

Adopting and adhering to a positive mindset, while also vigilantly managing risk, is a tough combination to pull off in all forms of speculation. And when you factor in social media at the cross-section of finance, it is easy to get dragged down in the misery of others who let negativity get the best of them. After all, as they say, misery...

Out on a Limb But Not Breaking

It has been quite a steep multi-month correction for precious metals and their derivative miners. In fact, the selling at times has been so unforgiving that it is understandable how many market players and pundits would abandon the hope for a new bull run which was so prevalent earlier this year.  Nonetheless, the case for a new gold and silver...

Married to a Thesis, Within Reason

For a while now, we have been looking for the multi-decade bond bull to continue to show more signs of coming to an end. Recently, the price action has begun to confirm that thesis in a more pronounce way. Still, there is much more work to do; namely we need to see rates on the 10-year surge at least back over 3%.  In the meantime, TLT became...

Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

Today's selling is sure to give bears a good deal of material. Indeed, a failure for a sustained "Santa Rally" to take place after Christmas until early-january aligns with one of those old Wall Street axioms: "If Santa Claus fails to call, bears may come to Broad & Wall," which mean if the last five trading days of the current year (2016) and...

Keeping the Holiday Chips Honest

The semiconductors, led by star NVIDIA Corporation, have undoubtedly been a key contributor to the bull case for a good while now. Yesterday's launch in NVDA gave rise to a ballyhoo regarding how foolish bears were for trying to short the name and how potent the name truly was. Even this morning at the open, too, saw NVDA make fresh highs. But...

What is a Ho-Ho-Ho

The Santa rally is kicking off with a drifting move higher today. The Dow is not at 20,000, but that is not making life any easier for bears who have yet to throw in the towel on their thesis.  I am looking to see if the precious miners can sustain today's bounce, too, beyond a mere one-off move. Indeed, doing so will be a bit of a change in...

Holiday Liquidity Sloshing Around

Volumes are expectedly light into the end of 2016, with plenty of fund managers and traders gone until at least the first week in January. As such, some small cap names become even more prone to wild intraday moves with a general lack of liquidity.  One issue which causes none of those concerns is Alphabet, below on the daily chart. While it...

Mr. Market Knows if You've Been Bad or Good

Unlike Santa Claus, though, Mr. Market does not much care one way or the other how you have been behaving. In reality, the market is what it is, and is not out to get any of us nor purposefully reward us, either. Personalizing market action and inevitable losses in trading remains a surefire way to get blown off your path.  As we wind down a...

Carl Icahn Plays: Danger Ahead, Danger Behind

  Driving that train, high on cocaine, Casey Jones you better watch your speed Trouble ahead, trouble behind And you know that notion just crossed my mind "Casey Jones," Grateful Dead    Regardless of your personal politics, it is fair to say that legendary activist investor Carl Icahn has President-Elect Trump's ear on a variety of...

This Will Do for Now

Consistent with a slow week leading up to a major holiday, markets continue to drift despite the ballyhoo about "Dow: 20,000." GoPro is finally gaining ground today on the back of a rumor that KKR is an interested suitor. Regardless of whether the rumor comes to fruition, GPRO is certainly capable of a quick holiday long scalp to squeeze shorts...
