With the S&P 500 building a base and the VIX receding once again to historically normal levels, I’m seeing hints of the new market status quo. Conventional investments have a lot of work ahead of them. For instance, half the members of the elite Dow industrials, including the mighty Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), are 10 percent depressed […]
We’ve all heard a lot of talk this week about Treasury yields setting off a recession. I can confidently say that the immediate threat is exaggerated. After all, I’ve lived through partial inversions that took years to turn into recessions, making lots of money in the market along the way. Most of us have. I’m […]
While it can feel like the market has been going straight down since the quarter started, a look at the actual numbers tells us that the feeling is more a factor of sentiment than of substance. Volatility has been a little higher than what Wall Street has become used to after years of record calm. […]
It is a cold season for technology investors who hoped that the same handful of stocks that have led the market up since 2014 would keep rallying forever. The mighty have fallen. Key sector benchmarks like the Technology Select Sector ETF (NYSE:XLK) have dropped 15 percent since Sept. 30, with Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) down a harrowing […]
Canada has legalized cannabis from coast to coast. In the United States, three additional states just voted to relax their regulations, opening up another 20 million potential consumers while tipping Attorney General Jeff Sessions, one of their greatest detractors in Washington, out of power. While it should be a golden age for green boom investors, […]

Clouds are gathering across Silicon Valley. From Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) down to cult favorites like Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) and Square (NYSE:SQ), high-tech heavyweights have warned that growth is slowing. Frankly, they can’t justifiably blame trade policy, interest rates or even a strong dollar for this phenomenon. Across the technology sector, sales for 2019 are […]
With the biggest stock on Wall Street down more than 10 percent in five weeks, it is time investors cut through the chatter and face a few simple facts. It’s getting icy out there. Out of the 5,000 stocks I track, 3,000 are already in formal bear market mode, down 20 percent or more from […]
If we were on the day-to-day noise, the present situation looks like the worst earnings season of the year. Over the course of the past month, the S&P 500 is down 7 percent, the Nasdaq has logged a full 10 percent correction and 85 percent of all stocks have lost ground. In just 22 trading […]
Big technology casts a vast lopsided shadow across the modern market. Counting gigantic Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) in with the famous “FANG” group of dot-com darlings, just six companies have swelled up to the point where they command a full 15 percent of all the money flowing through the entire S&P 500. For perspective, […]
Even in the best of times, the retail cycle is cruel. Margins are tight, discounts can tempt even the most loyal shoppers and chain after chain has destroyed itself grabbing more market share than it could profitably handle. In other words, defeat emerges from the jaws of victory with shocking regularity. The situation makes the […]
