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...

A Hangover Into Apple

Although I have strong personal opinions about Powell and The Fed, the fact remains that the market is still sorting out the FOMC yesterday and all of its possible ramifications. Hence, it is probably not too instructive to spend much more time in a blog post bloviating about the current monetary policy.  Far more relevant and tangible for us...

You may be surprised to know that shares of Starbucks are currently trading at the same spot they were five years ago nearly to the day. This is a consequence of the latest earnings gap down last evening, amid terrible comps.  On the updated monthly chart for SBUX, below, you can see the monstrous breakaway gap lower--To see such a gap on the...
