Wall Street has finally calmed down a little in the last few days as lenders relax repayment rules on what could soon become millions of newly unemployed workers. Volatility has finally receded. I suspect that this is only the calm between the storms, or the eye of the coronavirus hurricane if you prefer. The S&P […]
This has been a week of extremes. A lot of people are obsessing over superlatives: worst week since 2008, worst day since 1987 and so on. For them, it feels like the end of the world. I disagree. I lived through Black Monday in 1987 and went on to have a great career as a […]
The S&P 500 is once again in correction territory now that California has declared an emergency and the coronavirus has spread to 19 U.S. states.

Remember when Elon Musk said he was fielding offers to take Tesla Inc. (NASDAQ:TSLA) private at $420, and everyone laughed? Here, the stock is at $900 and only the short sellers are crying. And it isn’t alone. Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc. (NYSE:SPCE) was dead money last year. Now it has tripled in value since Dec. […]

The market’s mood always revolves around Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Next week, we’ll see how well that mood holds up when we observe the corporate reality behind it. Apple CEO Tim Cook is an accounting genius. I will be shocked and a little horrified if the company misses detailed guidance when it reports its quarterly numbers […]
Jeff Bezos had a spectacular decade. Amazon.com Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) soared 900 percent while the S&P 500 barely doubled. But more recently, the juggernaut has faltered. AMZN is only up 13 percent in the past year and is still 7 percent off its all-time peak. The market as a whole, meanwhile, has shifted into racing […]
Nobody wants to follow a broken game plan. That’s why it’s worth reviewing the accuracy of your own market forecasts as well as everyone else’s predictions from time to time. And the start of a new year presents the perfect opportunity to calibrate our sense of where Wall Street is headed. I’m pleased to say […]
Part of what won Yale University economist Robert Shiller a Nobel Prize was his 2005 warning that the housing market was getting unsustainably overheated.
