More Negatives than Positives, but…

Part of my investment philosophy is to look at the positive and negative signs in the market and adjust my investment levels accordingly. It is important to keep an open mind when doing this. Don’t get too caught up in what “you think the market should be doing.” Flexibility is important but being stubborn gets [...]

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.

5 Reasons to Stay Bullish Over the Near-Term

1) The NUMBER ONE criteria I use to evaluate the overall health of the market is the price action of leading stocks. Right now, I am finding many strong fundamental companies forming strong technical patterns. When I see this across many sectors, the market has a high probability of doing well. 2) Seasonally, we are [...]

The 3 Hardest Jobs in the World

1) Consistently outperforming the stock market. The key word is "consistent" because to be the best at ANYTHING you have to be consistent. Michael Jordan is not considered one of the best basketball players of all-time because he scored 30 points ONCE in a game. It's because he "consistently" averaged 30 points per game over a 15-20 [...]

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 [...]
