Some Plays on the Value Train

We have what seems to be another fairly boring open this morning on the major averages. All things considered, the context of this drifting action is not all that unwelcome by bulls when you ponder the alternative--Aggressive downside follow-through after Tuesday's big reversal down.  Small cap issues in the Russell 2000 Index are outperforming...

Lithium: Time to Move on to the Next Big Thing

The hot lithium trend (LIT is the ETF, and ALB FMC SQM are the main three lithium/chemical stocks) of the last several quarters is looking rather long in the tooth at this point. On the ALB weekly chart, below, we have a notable rising steep trend break (light blue line).  Of course, breaking a steep rising support trendline does not guarantee...

Let's Drive a Hardcore Pawn Bargain with This Correlation

Oftentimes in writing about markets in real-time, being "too early" versus being flat-out wrong on a given a thesis can often be a matter of semantics and, ironically, not unlike a negotiation at a pawn shop where value is simply determined in the eye of the beholder (who happens to hold some leverage in the negotiation). In reality, though,...

A Spectacle for All to See

Perhaps the main issue with shorting into yesterday's broad market reversal lower was that the prospect of a "blow-off top" or major reversal day off the Dow hitting 26,000 (and the S&P hitting 2800--Big, round but arbitrary numbers indeed) became blatantly obvious.  Typically, the market will not top out in such an in-your-face manner, per se....

A Straight Hustle if I've Ever Seen One

After a spectacular start to 2018, we saw a massive gap higher this morning reverse down after the Dow Jones Industrial Average surprised the big, round (but arbitrary) 26,000 level. The above description would seem to be an ideal short setup for bears looking to pounce on an exhaustion move. And while it is certainly true that many stocks are...

Trade Review: Adjusting to This Type of Market

Last Wednesday, January 10th, inside Market Chess Subscription Services I went long the mid-cap biotechnology stock, Bluebird bio. Here was the text and email alert I sent out after my tweet to clients: TRADE: New Long BLUE @ $171.40 Stop: $160 Target: $190. 2% Size. Mid-cap bios get rotation. Oversold at 50-day m.a. Last Friday, however, I had...

Tesla Part of the Background Scenery

Given the melt-up we are seeing on the major averages, with "Dow 26,000" headlines making the rounds today in the non-financial news media, one would think that Tesla Inc. would surely be out in front of the tape ripping higher.  That has not been the case, though, as TSLA has faded a bit in recent months into the market's background scenery....

If the Market is on Yayo, Then We Must Look at Zayo

Headed into a three-day weekend, a hot broad market is still melting up as we speak. At this point, our focus in on those names which may have lagged this week but are not lagging the tape as a whole. In other words, we want to identify strong overall chart (meaning over a period of months, quarters, etc.) even if they have been quiet of late....

A Trick off the Old Blockchain

I must admit it was interesting to see  Warren Buffett and his right-hand man, Charlie Munger, eschew Bitcoin and crypto currencies in general this week, throwing it largely into the same "too hard, and I don't understand it" basket they once threw virtually all of tech.  And, yet, Berkshire Hathaway owns  134 million outstanding shares of...

The Next Phase Should Be a Rather Self-Absorbed One

With stubborn shorts still not quite throwing in the towel yet in many names, the next phase of the bull may very well be upon us.  Under that theory, we should begin to see some obnoxious short squeezes in heavily-shorted, controversial names like Wayfair (W), for example. Shorts may very well be correct in their analysis of these names over...

Two Losers Fighting Back

Harley-Davidson and Spirit Airlines, respectively below on their dally timeframes, are similar in that they have been much-maligned in recent quarters for falling behind industry peers and having the market justly punish them for it.  HOG, in particular, has been blasted by critics for failing to adapt to the Millennial generation who want very...

The Little Red Book of Rumors and Excuses

News this morning that China may be considering cutting back its buying of U.S. Treasuries not only sent TLT lower yet (even after its recent bout of weakness), but also seemingly sent U.S. stock index futures tumbling pre-market. Despite Warren Buffett opining that valuations were not too rich for equities relative to rates, we still have some...

High Energy Going for New Heights

Three of the main beverage buyout targets, FIZZ MNST SODA (also with NBEV as a small speculative play perking up this morning), are either sporting sound charts or, in the case of FIZZ, attempting to emerge from corrective patterns this morning.  For a while now, many have speculated on which one of these firms would be the most logical buyout...
