Six Degrees of the Baconator

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas trading.  Select beaten-down names, like TWLO, are finally catching a holiday bid today. I am looking to see if others follow suit, such as ACIA LN. For now, the momentum appears to be rather narrow as the indices work sideways-to-slightly-down. NKE is also turning in an uninspired bounce after...

Calling a Bottom to Mysterious Murders and Illnesses Aboard Cruise Ships

It has been quite the turn of events for cruise liners over the last decade or so. Once seen as a higher end status symbol for "holiday-goers," as the British would say, a series of well-publicized outbreaks of illnesses aboard some of the major cruise lines, coupled with some notable husband-wife murders and disappearances, has led to a simple...

20,000 Leagues Under the Tree for Christmas

The chase to hit 20,000 on the Dow Jones Industrial Average seems to have taken on a life of its own in both the financial and non-financial news media. Considering the Dow toyed with the 1,000 level from the 1966-1982 secular bear market, I understand the concept that big round numbers on the Dow may be a bit more than a novelty.  At this...

Typical Holiday Movement

Even though the "Santa Rally" does not historically start until after Christmas, I see the market is already beginning to drink eggnog and drift on higher. Moreover, momentum traders seem to be congregating around some typical, high beta stocks which have taken a beating and may now be ripe for some relief. Twilio is one such maple, below on...

A Bear of a Russian Bull

Russia is making international headlines today, with a Russian Ambassador being shot dead in Turkey and a video of it, to boot.  Regarding we stock traders, the RSX (Russia ETF) has been explosively strong since just after the Election, likely a double whammy of Trump and oil both being bullish for the Motherland.  On the RSX, below, after an...

The Darker the Berry the Sweeter the Squeeze

It may seen hard to believe, but back when BlackBerry was called Research in Motion (RIMM ticker) it was a major market leader from 2006 through early 2008.  These days, however, BBRY seems to have fallen through the market's cracks, with barely a mention from the most hardcore of tech enthusiasts.  This morning, though, BBRY is up nearly 3% on...

Whole Year for Whole Paycheck

On the one hand, Whole Foods Market (also known as "Whole Paycheck," due to their high-end grocer status), will no longer be part of Nasdaq-100 Index.  On the other hand, that may function as a contrarian signal for a stock which has essentially been dead money for actually well over a year now. And that dead period was preceded by a steep...

They're Not Playing for a High First Round Draft Pick

Unlike in professional sports, such as at this point in the NFL season, the very worst performers in the stock market have no (legal) incentive to intentionally tank all the way and position for a high draft pick.  With that in mind, at this stage in the year, the notable laggards like FIT GPRO, even TWLO, and solars to boot, are at a moment in...

From Way Downtown at The Oracle

Along with Adobe, Oracle also reports earnings tonight after the bell. Both firms are mature tech plays with plenty of price memory we have at our disposals.  On the ORCL monthly chart, below, for example, note how the name marginally broke its prior dot-com bubble highs in late-2014/2015, only to then relinquish those gains.  However, sellers...

Gold Bugs Not Quite Out of Business Yet for Christmas

As ugly as this sell-off in precious metals and miners looks and must feel for longs, the reality is that the metals and miners are still above their 2015/early-2016 respective lows. As such, the case for a bear market bottoms is still in play, even if it is under duress at the moment.  On the GDXJ (ETF for those wildly volatile junior gold...

Chasing CHiPs

As we wind down 2016 for a remarkably resilient stock market, a performance chase by fund managers into the unflappable semiconductor sector becomes a more viable scenario. Beyond that, we know a last-minute M&A spree still may materialize before the ball drops in Times Square, as there are many buyout targets still in contention. Regarding...

Two What? What was That Word?

We have a mild sell-off going after The Fed raised rates and hinted at a few more hikes in 2017 to come. Stocks are mixed, to my eye. But the REITs in the IYR sector ETF and the utilities in the XLU are responding on kind to The Fed's hawkish tone. These are traditionally "rate-sensitive" sectors, so it makes sense to see them soft here. When...

Resume the Hike

A widely-expected rate hike coming up later this afternoon by The Fed is likely on tap, as stocks meander into the event.  Some big winners this year like the chip play NVDA and several materials miners (AKS CLF X) are flexing here. But it is tough to make too many assumptions in terms of the market's specific reaction.  We can, however, make a...

Sharing Good Homework

If you love actionable ideas in a no-nonsense environment, then our Members inside the services are consistent in identifying great ideas which I then share with the group.  Headed into 2017, one such idea could easily be a resurgence in the pharma/healthcare space. Should that materialize, it is hard not to like a mid-cap drug play like Aerie,...
