I Feel Sorry for Your Latte

Starbucks continues to act poorly into the final days of 2023, a surefire sign that fund managers have little interest in having the name on their books. For a good while now, we have noted the SBUX relative weakness both here and with Members.  Despite that, on the long-term SBUX quarterly chart, updated below, the major uptrend for years is...

Putting Out a BOLO This Week

I am putting out a BOLO this week.  Used mostly by law enforcement, BOLO is an acronym that means "be on the lookout." And when we note that this final holiday week of the calendar year tends to, usually quite handily, be the lightest trading volume days of the year, we simply must be aware of trading stocks which normally are not considered...

Merry Christmas to You from Market Chess

All the best for a safe and happy holiday week. Eat, drink, and be merry.  I did a holiday video for Members today, worth a look.  In the meantime, enjoy Rod Stewart's Christmas concert.

Let's Just Chalk it Up to Cultural Differences

The "Santa Rally" is an actual and seriously tracked phenomenon on Wall Street, not just some urban legend. It officially starts tomorrow, since the market is closed on Monday for Christmas.

Quite the Picture

Freeport-McMoran, the domestic (Arizona-based)  molybdenum producer with tons of copper and gold exposure, too, used to be one of the most prominent stocks in the entire market about thirteen-fifteen years ago.  Back then, we had some ephemeral inflation head-fakes, where folks keyed off FCX for inflationary tells during its exhilarating...

Extremely Rare, Extremely Precious

Of the four major precious metals (palladium, platinum, gold, and silver), palladium is said to be the most expensive and rare. In fact, it is about fifteen times rarer than platinum, which probably surprises most people. In addition, in this brave new green world, palladium is an essential part in making pollution-control devices for...

Watch Your Back, Even During the Holidays

The next official sustained period of seasonal weakness is not until late-January/February. However, into the market melt-up it is likely worth noting sectors which have squeezed back up to what should be difficult levels on a long-term basis.  The commercial real estate stocks in the IYR ETF, below on the weekly timeframe, represent one such...

Once Again, Will You Remember Genco?

Lost in the shuffle of all the Fed victory laps, emotions, and general news flow this week has been the $2.1 billion merger between SBLK and EGLE  to form the U.S.'s largest dry-bulk shipping company.  About a week or two prior to the merge we had noted the strength in Eagle both here and with Members. In addition, we thought Genco (GNK, on...
