Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas

Although I wrote a negative review for  Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (2017) earlier this year, a much better film which the acclaimed writer/director Martin McDonagh was involved with was In Bruges (2008), which is currently available on Netflix.  The film is the epitome of what a dark comedy should be, and stars Colin Farrell...

May I Interest You in Today's Rotation du Jour?

In the face of some steep selloffs from retail plays BKE and ZUMZ yesterday, quite a few XRT sector names notably lagged yesterday's broad market.  However, consistent with how this market has traded underneath the surface of late, this morning we saw tech immediately faded off the open (though bouncing back as we speak) and retail regain its...

It's Not That Easy Being Greenbrier

Without question, plenty of tech and medical tech plays are front and center as part of today's market leadership. More than quite a few of those names are attempting to emerge from tight, multi-week base consolidations to set in motion fresh legs higher this summer. Indeed, we will cover those names coming up in my usual Midday Video for...

Catching the Rotations Just Right

Another day, another rotation.  The theme of this morning's rally seems to be the plethora of software stocks as well as medical technology names attempting to compensate for the abrupt energy weakness the last two sessions. Enterprise software names like NEWR and cybersecurity standouts like PANW jump off the screens, while medical tech...

Who's the King?

Despite the emergence of Redfin (RDFN), there can be little doubt that Zillow remains the real estate king of online listings, especially after the Zillow/Trulia merger a few years back.  Furthermore, even as homebuilders have suffered through a steep correction and subsequent dead money period into the summer, the far, Zillow has remain...

The Summer of Laffy Taffy Tariffs

The Wall Street Journal notes this morning that, "China doesn’t import enough from the U.S. to match the new $200 billion tariffs—so Beijing is reviewing plans to hit back in other ways." On the back of President Trump's new tariffs, U.S. stock index futures had a rough overnight session. As we speak this morning, however, many individual...

Summer Sleepers

It turned into another spotty summer rally today, with the early small cap reversal down impeding the bulls' hope for a spirited, broad-based move higher.  As we discussed with Members earlier, the market seems to be morphing into a daily game of Whac-A-Mole at times, as the sector rotations are becoming more frequent and ephemeral.  And with...

Grip it and Rip It

With Topgolf establishments (owned in part by ELY, Callaway Golf) popping up around the country, the main takeaway is impressive demand by consumers for the business model of combining a bar/dining experience with a golf driving range.  On that note, Drive Shack is an emerging competitor to Topgolf, with plenty of potential growth ahead in its...
