Don't Discount Summer Seasonality

There is enough nuance to seasonality data these days for any of us to cherry-pick a given chart to support a predetermined thesis, especially considering this is a general election year for a President seeking a second term in office amid a once-in-a-century type of pandemic. One of the most ubiquitous Wall Street axioms, for example, is "Sell...

Bread and Circuses...and Biotech

“Give them bread and circuses and they will never revolt.” — Ancient Roman poet, Juvenal The various entertainment in, say, the Roman Colosseum, was seen as the "bread and circuses" to keep the population of Rome rather happy and docile, staving off revolt during tough times.  In the current market and economic landscape, perhaps The Fed is...

Pricing in the Unpriceable

If we had had social media back in 1929-1932, it would have been fascinating to see how the post-October 1929 crash price action and policy decisions would have been met. Not long after the crash, history seems to overlook that both The Fed and President Herbert Hoover took considerable action to try to stem the tide of unemployment as well as...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

Happy Mother's Day weekend. In light of the special day tomorrow, here is a relevant and worthwhile film.  As you might imagine, I am leaning towards the classic cinema of Hollywood yesteryear, with a heavy dose of film noir to keep things interesting.  Mildred Pierce (1945) fits the bill, with Joan Crawford winning the Oscar for Best...

The New Era of Retail

By now, we are well aware that Amazon is, in many respects, king of the castle in terms of new-world retail purchases and their entire ecosystem. But there is always COST and WMT, with names like BJ not far behind. Grocers like IMKTA KR SFM WMK are coming into their own, too.  And there a notch down are the dollar stores like DG and DLTR, with...

Pop Quiz Hotshot: There's an Economic Bomb on a Bus

Pop quiz, hotshot : There's an economic bomb on a bus in the form of a multi-month lockdown amid a pandemic. Roughly 33 million people are not out of work, at least, and that number is expected to only  grow from here. How do we prevent the economic bomb from fully exploding? Well, some would argue we cannot do much at this point as it is too...

Slow & Steady Keeps You in the Race

Even if the current market does prove to be merely the early-innings of a new bear market, luring in new longs as we speak, it is not much consolation for over-eager bears who pressed the likes of BYND PTON PYPL SPCE SQ TWLO this week and are now suffering dearly in the way of violent short squeezes higher. The sizable moves today, for example,...

Someone is Lying

While there is always the possibility that equities could flatten out into summer, essentially "going dead" on the major indices I suspect that the glaring divergences we are witnessing will come to a head sooner or later. On the one hand we have tech flying again in many cases, be it NFLX SPCE and various biotechs and software names thriving...
