Stock Picker’s Market

Back in 2007, one of my favorite money managers, Ken Heebner, was up +80% for the year while the S&P 500 was only up +3.5%. How did he do it? He was concentrated in the best stocks from the strongest sectors. I remember it well because I was focused on the same stocks and I [...]

A Few Thoughts on Monday’s Selloff

At first, you might laugh at the title and say: "What selloff? The market was only down -0.41%." Keep in mind I mainly trade individual growth stocks and beneath the surface, there was some damage today. 1) Relative to how much the general market was down, an abnormal amount of stocks were down over -4% on Monday.

A Market Scenario that Frustrates the Most People

A scenario that would frustrate the most people is if the market stays in a range for a while. Let me explain: 1) The perma-Bears want the market to go down and STAY down. I'm assuming it's because they've missed the rally, they feel the market is overvalued, they're afraid to buy near highs, or [...]

No June Rate Hike

One strong Jobs Report last Friday and it's the end of the world, huh? That's it, the Fed is going to raise rates and the market has topped. For those who don't know me, I'm being sarcastic. Here are a few thoughts: 1) This week, you will hear non-stop discussions about the Fed. My best [...]

New Highs Coming Soon

Based on my work this weekend and the recent price action, it feels like the market wants to breakout to new highs over the next 3-6 weeks.  I came into the year cautious, and that proved to be wise as the market has been extremely volatile to start the year. I don't think they will [...]

Don’t Fight The Liquidity

Earlier today, the European Central Bank (ECB) announced their version of Quantitative Easing (QE). As I have been saying for a long time, we're in a liquidity driven market fueled by a globally coordinated effort to keep rates low and the markets high. Although I came into the year short-term cautious (which was wise due to [...]

Short-term Cautious

As I have mentioned for the last year or two, I still think the Nasdaq Composite eventually gets to its old March 2000 high of around 5100-5200.
