Banks for the Memories

It is worth reiterating a point we have made previously over the years: The financials in the XLF ETF are pretty much the only major part of the market not to have overtaken their prior all-time highs from last decade. Naturally, with the banks at the epicenter of the financial debit crisis in 2008, it only makes sense that they would be the...

Do Some Detective Work

On the back of breaking news from Reuters this morning that Google or Alphabet is in talks to acquire Fitbit, shares of FIT were higher by around 22% as I write this. Despite the FIT chart sporting a fairly strong downtrend much of its time since 2015, we know that the business model was such that a buyout could come at any time. After all,...

Flexing in Time for Halloween

A sharp bounce virtually across the board in the bludgeoned software sector is giving bulls hope, once again, for the worst being over among growth stocks. While that may be the case, as the elder software statesman MSFT bounces a bit after earnings, there remains considerable risk of backing, filling, and more chopping around even if the lows...

A Good Market Spoiled

Amid another sloppy and choppy day in the broad market, it is worth flagging Callaway Golf for you. On the ELY daily chart, below, note the outperformance of late, including the green today. True, earnings are coming up tomorrow.  But the most interesting aspect about Callaway here is that they own a stake in TopGolf, an up-and-coming company...

Don't Just Go Through the Motions

One of the more challenging aspects about speculation, of all kinds, is catching yourself in the moment and resisting the urge to place a bet simply because that is what you think you are supposed to do. After all, if you are not trading, then what difference is there between you and some who never trades? On the surface, it seems like not...

Biogen Changing Just in Time

After large cap biotechnology stock Biogen resurrected its Alzheimer’s drug during its earnings beat this morning, the stock is higher by roughly 30% as I write this. Considering we are talking about a firm with a market cap over $50 billion, this is a rather unique move.  As it pertains to the biotechs as a whole, keying off the IBB and XBI...

More Ways to Fall in Love

Just a quick follow-up into the bell today with our working thesis that energy stocks and materials are putting in a long-term bottom: We have crude oil lower on global demand concerns (or at least that is the reason provided by CNBC).  However, energy stocks themselves are higher, with the OIH ETF (oil service and equipment stocks) up 3.5% as...

Early Analysis of the Small Caps

"They've got tremendous moxie for their size." "Tell me about it. IWM is a fighter."   Small caps are out of the gate impressively this morning. However, at the risk of throwing cold water on the party, note that software names like COUP MDB NOW OKTA TEAM WDAY are all red again (or flattish) and still cannot even muster a bounce after...
