218 is Gonna Raise a Fuss, Gonna Raise a Holler

It may feel like the summertime blues out there, given the slow action on the market indices for a few weeks now.  However, a round of M&A to kick off the week may spice things up below the surface, MDVN in biotechs and ISIL with semis. Indeed, the large cap biotechs like BIIB are green here, with Biogen trying to crack $320, just above. We...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

Given the incredible popularity and success of Usain Bolt during the Olympics, as well the Jamaican sprinters in general during the relays, it would be a shame to overlook an entertaining film about the Jamaican bobsled team during the winter olympics.  Cool Runnings (1993) stars some of my favorite actors, including Leon and Malik Yoba, as...

Dog Days of Summer: We All Have it Coming, Kid

The plot for the great Clint Eastwood film, Unforgiven  (1992), is set in the fictional town of Big Whisky, Wyoming, which makes me think of next week's Jackson Hole Symposium in the same state.  With events kicking off on Thursday, and Janet Yellen speaking there for the first time in two years, the market may very well stay in a holding...

A Slowly Unfolding Treat

On the back of Foot Locker's rally after strong earnings, both NKE and UA are jumping as I write this.  For a while now, NKE and UA have been lagging the market's post-Brexit advance to new highs. We had intermittently looked at them as quick short ideas, though they both had been firming up a bit better of late.  On the weekly chart for UA,...

A Rotation Day...and Corn

Amid quiet indices, it was a good day to let hot but crowded names like TWLO unwind a bit, instead focusing on the rotations into energy, select tech, and even chemical plays.  Indeed, many energy and chemical plays are on the cusp of meaningful breakouts if they can sustain their recent progress, building on last week's failed breakdown in...

A Quiet Summer Day from Afar

On the surface, the S&P 500 Index is printing a "doji" day so far, meaning a rather tight range and indicative of some mild indecision on the part of market players. Below the surface, we have some bonafide blow-ups in the private prison arena, with CXW and GEO down more than 35% as I write this on news the DOJ will no longer be using them for...

Tony Soprano's on His Way out, and I Mean as in Forever

Waste Management, Inc., in addition to the traditional utilities, REITS, classic staples, has also been a bastion for yield-seekers/chasers in a global low interest rate environment for years. The "waste management" or garbage disposal business seems inherently safe on a variety of levels. And the yield was extremely attractive to the fixed...
