Robotic Stock for a Robotic Market

Given that Netflix reports tonight, then Tesla tomorrow evening, it is easy to overlook Intuitive Surgical (below, on the quarterly chart sporting a freight train uptrend since 2009, despite the 2020 hiccup) reporting tonight, as well.  ISRG trades at a forward PE of nearly fifty-eight as I write this, remarkably expensive and aligned with how...

A Hot Oil Coil

Given that crude oil topped out last late-September, suffered a sharp correction, then has gone nowhere for two months running, I have been fairly quiet on the commodity and various oil stocks, for the most part. As we noted with Members, other segments have commodities have been more active, even if they offer the usual head-fakes and traps. ...

Too Much Money Chasing After Too Few Goods

It is tough to think of a more blinking red light about another surge higher in inflation than the fallout from the ongoing tensions in the Red Sea than the major supply disruptions, as seen on a recent CNBC.com headline , below.  On this options expiration Friday, stocks (especially tech, notably semiconductors, again) are ignoring any bad...

Not Buying the AI Decadence

AMD reports earnings on January 29th, while NVDA reports out in February 28th. While I fully acknowledge the variance that earnings reports carry, I also view the action in AMD, especially, to be symptomatic of an "echo bubble" in chips based on the AI craze. We have seen as much in NVDA for a good while now.  But AMD recently has gone bananas...

Sorting Through Winter Battles

I was just forced to cut a gold miner long trade, as the (likely) threat of no imminent March rate cut seems to be pressuring gold more than I expected.  Of course, you know that I also am not expecting a rate cut, either, and have several other positions on to benefit from that, including an outright short on bonds as well as a bearish bet on...

Soft Landings Are for Loch Ness Monster Believers

My highest conviction view for 2024 remains that the now much-ballyhooed economic "soft landing" is in fact a mirage in the middle of the vast desert created by troubled monetary and fiscal policies coming home to roost, finally, after decades of can-kicking. While The Fed achieving that elusive soft landing, meaning inflation cools off...

Partying of the Red Sea

It may not be as biblical as the "parting of the Red Sea" by Moses, but some stocks are certainly partying due to the Red Sea tensions escalating today. Specifically with the U.S./British militaries striking back against  Iran-backed Yemen amid Red Sea tensions, we have uranium, oil tanker, and gold miner stocks out in front of a sluggish...

Rate Cuts?! Rate Cuts?! I Just Hope We Can Get to 2%

This morning's hot CPI saw an initially muted reaction from stocks, followed by the expected dip-buy spot. This time around, however, the dip-buyers slipped up a bit as we have small caps leading the rest of the indices lower to the tune of 1.7% as I write this.  Without question, we saw immediate attempts from The Fed "whisperer," himself,...
