Learn Your LULU Lesson

When shares of Lululemon hit new all-time highs last December 2023 it was quite fashionable for bulls to boast about how LULU was just like COST GOOGL MSFT NVDA and other nonstop, crowded winners who simply could not lose in this market.  Since then, as you can see on the monthly chart for LULU, first below, the stock has tumbled violently...

Where's My Cheeseballs?

Right now, very few people want to hear that MasterCard and Visa are displaying relative weakness this morning, or that silver and the precious miners are acting well, alongside copper.  No, this market right now conjures up twenty-year old memories of the (original, pre-"Situation") Jersey Shore MTV show starring Tommy Cheeseballs, stomping...

Stocks Keep Living the Riviera Life

The old timers would say that another round of "meme stonks" like AMC and especially GME blasting off today is a surefire sign of a market top. Of course, many would (and are) counter that we are in a new market, a new world of stocks only going up and any and all dips rendered amazing buying opportunities, where "old timers" are obsolete...
