Quitting is for pussies. You didn't actually think I was going to vanish into thin air, in the middle of a fucking bear raid, therefore giving third tier blogs a boost in traffic, did you?
If you own a third tier blog, you might as well print this fucking post out and put this shit on your blog's tombstone (I realize blogs cannot be physically buried),cause it's dead.
Much to your chagrin, "The Fly" is dumping this blogspot shit for his own domain, iBC.
This way, I can really put the hammer of death on my sworn enemies, while handsomely rewarding myself, via internet silly money.
Everything will be the same, with the exception of a few additional features, such as the merchandising of low-end internet clothes, which was entirely Woodshedder's idea.

Ducati, step into my office
Ha, just like that--ignorant style.
See, the problem with Ducati, and many of his ilk, he relies on make believe statistics and macro-economics to make market calls.
Ask anyone who manages money, using macro-analysis, as a guide to investing, is a suckers path to getting fleeced.
While Ducati may have the wind behind his sails now, considering how the "homo hammer of hell" is smashing bull nuts, ultimately he (Ducati) will die wrong.
In many ways, we are all stupid fucktards, trying to find our niche, our special skill-- to make enough money so that we can fly to the moon in a monkey suit.
Let me just say this: Ducati will never wear a fucking monkey suit, in a pimped out space ship, on his way to the fucking moon.
Fly wins again.
|Should I shitcan Ducati, again? [30 votes total]|
Know this: Ducati is an enemy of this website, always has been. I spit on his analysis and chuckle, not laugh, at his fucktarded bearish views.
In short, I just thought it would be fun to fucking fire him again.
It's that simple--and fucked up.
So, without further adieu, should I shitcan Ducati, again?
Fuck you Grant.
The readership of Sir Fly’s blog has of course mutated over time, new readers appear, and old ones wander off to die somewhere. There have been a couple of comments in the comments section stating that they missed my first weekend stint. No matter, the one stock that defines the love/hate relationship twixt Broker A and some of the stalwarts is without a doubt……..MVIS.
When I claimed MVIS was overvalued, howls of derision. When I claimed MVIS had little or no institutional buying interest, I was accused of sodomising children, I argued the case that corporate action was fraudulent to existing shareholders with the debacle in the Warrants, my wife was ridiculed, when I claimed that MVIS had no patents worth anything, that in point of fact, all that they had were patent applications, a form of internet immortality ensued.
I had an infamous $10 bet with Broker A that is still outstanding while I await the arrival of a lemonade bottle launched I presume into the South Atlantic, to date it has not arrived in the Tasman.
What is the story today?
Well, let’s take a look at MVIS currently. First a very cursory examination of MVIS financial strength
Total Assets………... $50.42
Net Sales………..….. $7.04
Market Value…….… $222.38
Total Liabilities……. $11.27
Current Assets…….. $44.91
Current Liabilities…. $9.46
Retained Earnings…. [-253.4]
Altman Ratio [-3.89] which predicts a high probability of bankruptcy.
Of course the concept was never really about the numbers, if it was, well more fool you, the story was of course about the potential of this PicoP projector.
Let’s examine the story a little more closely. Without patent protection of the latest technological developments, this project will be doomed by imitative competition, thus, the patents assume a very large component in the quest for profitability.
Second, let’s assume that the patents are secured and that illegal competition will be curbed. Now the problem becomes, what exactly is the market share? At what price can this technology be sold? What about the vast arrays of partnerships, what exactly is their financial interest, how will this impact unit costs and profitability?
There have been numerous studies that detail the longer the development period of a new product or technology, the greater the bias to the upside estimates become, with the invariable disappointment leading to sub-par results.
Even when market demand is accurately forecast, underestimations of the competition can lead to sub-par results. A salutary example is within the air industry. The demand for passenger and freight proved to be underestimated, but the resulting over-capacity of the industry has created poor investment results over thirty years.
The length of time that this development is taking, has become in addition to the shocking financial condition of MVIS, a very real and growing risk to the owners of the business, viz. the shareholders.
In summary, I never liked MVIS, I still don’t like MVIS and I feel that this stock represents a speculation of the most uneducated nature.
To wrap up the weekend, it was however appropriate that MVIS closed out the weekend as it has defined probably more than any other single stock pick the very heart & soul of Broker A’s time in the blogosphere.
Certainly the blogosphere will be a slightly less entertaining place after Monday and the final demise of the “Fly”.
I certainly have enjoyed visiting and observing the unfolding sagas and some of the immortal characters that have populated this particular blog.
The panache and je ne sais quoi will be hard to replicate again, so on behalf of all I wish Broker A bon voyage and adieu.
The US market and emerging markets are ranging from marginally overvalued with catalysts to the downside, to, grossly overvalued speculative time bombs.
I now offer you a quote from Horace and “Ars Poetica”, for those of you who possibly visited my blog, you will remember it;
“Multa renascentur quae iam cecidere cadentque quae nunc sunt in honore”
The moral being that bull markets invariably create bear markets, and that eventually, the bull markets revert to bear markets, while bear markets grow to bulls.
True bear markets offer very low risk entry points with huge potential upside reward potential. True bear markets are reviled by investors as they have underperformed for long periods of time, frequently teasing with cyclical bull rallies in a secular bear trend.
I have emphasized, at least for those paying attention the importance of a catalyst within investment decisions. This is not an area that I have particularly emphasized within my own investments or trading. It is however an attribute that has been on prominent display on this blog for those who were attentive.
The catalyst in this particular opportunity is particularly important as the quantitative valuation is pretty much useless. The numbers themselves provide only the merest hint and they are difficult in any case.
Thus, we are left with an almost pure qualitative play.
Japan has been in a deflationary spiral for some 20yrs now. The stock market, the real estate market, the currency have all been in a secular downtrend.
A number of qualitative factors and one quantitative factor; I shall dispense with the quantitative factor first.
Japanese interest rates are slowly working their way upwards, from 0.25% to 0.5% currently, with further rises planned. Higher interest rates will strengthen, in time the currency.
Let’s now move to the qualitative factors; interest rates around the rest of the world have been slowly rising, faster in New Zealand, Iceland and Australia. As the world economy slows, so these rate rises will slow, freeze, or start to reverse.
Bankruptcy proceedings, both business and consumer are accelerating here in New Zealand. As the US economy slows, so the exponential growth in China will start to slow. The Chinese economy is addicted to export led growth, internal consumption is anaemic.
Thus, a closing of the interest rate spread and thus the carry trade, successful for the last 20yrs will come under increasing pressure.
Further, overpriced assets, that find themselves correcting will also find themselves if purchased with cheap Yen, under pressure to reverse.
Real estate values have again started to rise in Tokyo and other cities. Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Citibank have been purchasing commercial property in the last couple of months, positioning themselves for the end of the great Japanese bear market.
Rising real estate prices, in time force a rise in the interest rate, which for the purpose of this trade is a good thing.
Currencies trend for very long periods of time and the potential for this trade due to the massive undervaluation engendered by the carry trade is large.
Who are you trading against?
In manias, the last people to get sucked in tend to be the amateurs, seduced by the idea that markets only ever move in one direction. That easy money can be made, that the leverage available via margin can make them very rich, very quickly.
Some time ago, possibly 2 months, an article appeared detailing the extraordinary story that Japanese housewives were dominating the Fx market, engaged in the carry trade. Thus, you are trading against the leveraged Japanese housewife.
It is easy to take an unleveraged position within the Japanese Yen via FXY an ETF that has previously been mentioned on this blog.
In summary, we have some quantitative data via interest rates and numerous qualitative underpinnings to catch a secular bull market in its infancy.
I actually follow the fundamentals quite closely, yet, the scope of the problem had eluded me, therefore, a hat-tip is due Mr. Sierra Water for uncovering the data that will provide some of the referenced data provided.
The problem started in MBBS, specifically, sub-prime mortgages. With deteriorating employment, rising interest rates, overpriced housing stock, lax, to no lending standards, incredible greed and stupidity, fraudulent business practices, it was simply a matter of when, not if, there was a crisis.
First off, just how big is the problem? From the chart below we can easily see that the problem is large.
The banks loaned to consumers, who could not afford a mortgage, and then securitized the loans via MBBS, CDO’s etc and sold them to all and sundry.
They were aided and abetted in this undertaking by the ratings Agencies, Standard & Poor, Fitch and Moody’s, who accepted large fees for granting AAA grades, based on the principal of diversification.
Not being satisfied with simply this set of fees, the Banks then issued derivatives, Credit Default Swaps on the MBBS.
This is where the problem has escalated a couple of notches.
Worldwide derivatives are valued at some $400 Trillion or 30x the entire worlds GDP. US Bank exposure is circa $150 Trillion in notional value.
The vast majority of this exposure is concentrated within; JP Morgan, Bank of America, Citibank, Wachovia and HSBC.
The CDS exposure is circa $12 Trillion.
Now of course as the default rate starts to escalate, so there is movement within these derivative contracts. As the exposure is so leveraged, the Balance Sheets of these Banks is called into question.
Although the majority of the exposure is hedged, the fear is that a failure somewhere in the system might cause that exposure to move down the line and cause a bankruptcy to a First Tier Bank, Citibank for example.
The catalyst for the August meltdown, based on credit fears, was the downgrading of billions of dollars worth of MBBS securities.
One Hedge Fund that evaporated had purchased securities at $0.05 on the dollar and was required to provide margin to $0.80 on the dollar, needless to say, they passed on this generous offer.
We have two catalysts brewing for the next stage in the credit crisis. The first is an accounting change that takes effect I believe November 15 and that is Rule 157. This rule requires Level 3 assets to be more accurately valued, hence, the Merrill implosion, Citibank and Chuck.
The second of course are your corrupt Ratings Agencies again, from Fridays Wall St Journal;
"As of Nov. 1, S&P had lowered ratings on 381 tranches of residential mortgage-related CDOs. It still had a "Credit Watch negative" on 709 CDO tranches, meaning the bonds face a good chance of a downgrade.
Fitch has 609 CDO tranches on negative watch and plans to act on them by later this month. Through the end of October, Moody's said it had downgraded so far this year 338 CDO tranches worth $13 billion, backed primarily by mortgage-backed securities. It was still reviewing for downgrade another 734 tranches worth $48 billion.
Moody's says it hopes to finish its current crop of CDO downgrades in the next few months. Further downgrades could happen depending on the rating firm's assumptions about the underlying economy, where the outlook could be changing fast."
Everyone pretty much accepts that at some point the market will become a debacle with all and sundry running for the exits. It is also true however that the market may have much further to rise before the dénouement actually takes place.
It certainly provides some food for thought.
The first analysis based on ratio analysis left possibly an open question as to the value and likely direction in the medium term……medium term being defined as the next three years. I shall return once again to this baseline analysis when we look at the Gold & Oil markets in relation to the stock market.
Through sector analysis we have identified that the business cycle is most likely positioned within the late expansion, early contraction phase, thus, we would conclude that the stock market contains greater risk than reward at this point, assuming a long directional position.
We move next to
This market is if not already in a mania, close to one, this speculative orgy carries great risk, but of course parabolic moves can make leveraged bets into huge winners, thus the temptation will always be present.
For the more risk averse we shall look at the “timing” of the Chinese phenomenon, as, it will directly relate to the undervaluation that I have in mind.
Saturday, November 10, 2007
There will probably be dissention; however, the business cycle is alive and well. Much work was completed by Schumpeter, Kondratieff, Irving Fisher and numerous others. Having being made aware previously the limited attention span of the average Fly reader, I shall dispense with any further references and cut directly to the chase.
The business cycle has an important bearing upon financial markets and the stock market in particular.
Cycle Stage……..Recession…..Early Recovery……Recovery……Early Recession
Capital Goods, Basic Materials
Basic Materials, Energy, Consumer Staples
Financials, Consumer cyclicals
How then has the S&P500 performed across the following timeframes?
With the odd exception, we can observe that the theoretical business cycle correlates reasonably well with reality.
Energy and Utilities have been the strongest which we would expect at this stage of the business cycle which is the late expansion phase.
Financials are currently the topic-de-jour and are in point of fact indicating that the market may well be entering the early contraction phase. Consumer cyclicals, or discretionary are also showing confirmatory movement.
Therefore we can add the sector analysis to the overall market analysis of the first post and reassess the picture once again.
More Ducati Fun.
“The Fly of Wallstreet” has as you now know, announced his retirement from the blogging career that ran so successfully for all these months.
Why, was the arch-nemesis, “The Ducati” selected to provide possibly the only weekend blogging spot?
Possibly due to the fact that my much maligned selection on my debut and concurrently final appearance to date, was that fine performer TELOZ that prior to Fridays debacle, returned in excess of 100% in a challenging environment.
It is now my assigned duty to shed some light on the current market machinations, while possibly highlighting an opportunity that will provide a margin of safety for a longer term holding period in which we try to catch a secular trend.
This therefore is the intention. However, let me first digress. “The Fly” while injecting a certain level of gutter humour and wit to his blogging duties, also provided some interesting perspectives on the art of investing.
I have noted in the comments section, some of the detractors have criticized the methodology employed as “momentum investing” and this I suppose could be fairly classified as a form of “CANSLIM” or “GARP”.
While I believe that there is an element of truth to those accusations, they fall short of the reality. The reality is the analysis of the story. It is of course the story of MVIS that both enchanted and captivated; the story of the fat, beer guzzling, wing consuming, red neck southern fried gentleman that entertained in BWLD.
The “story” is in point of fact also known and referred to as a “Catalyst”. The catalyst is a vital, possibly the vital component, within this style of momentum/value based trading. There are some other posters in the comments section that display skills in this direction, they however lack the panache, charisma, and devil-may-care attitude generated on an almost daily basis by “Sir Fly”
Therefore the qualitative research provided identifying these catalysts is by no means easy or forthright to elicit. However, via quantitative research, we may find potential targets and ruminate upon their qualitative underpinnings. This will be the “homage” paid to “Sir Fly” as he leaves the blogosphere.
Enter Stage: Ducati
In a weird twist of ironic irony, "The Fly" invited Ducati to be his last weekend blogger--feeling he 'owed his readers that much fun.'
However, due to the old nature of Ducati's brain, he has been unable to create a blogger account, accusing google of having some sort of conspiracy against him.
So, he (Ducati) has emailed me his 'weekend work,' for me to post ("enjoy"):
With the current turmoil in the market, generated primarily by the Financials and sub-prime concerns, where is the market?
If we compare the 1982 level with the bottom in 2003 and the current position [as of September] in 2007 what conclusions can be drawn?
We shall start with a macro-analysis of the market and proceed to a sector analysis to see if any clear conclusions emerge from the analysis.
Earned in year………………...$13.97………………29.41……………. $86.03
Dividend …………………..…$6.82………………$16.22……………. $27.06
I have my own conclusions regarding the data. Of course I also have my own bias”, thus any interpretation of the data will be tinged with that bias.
Therefore, prior to any formal analysis, I shall simply present the data for you to mull over and draw conclusions.
I shall in due course provide an analysis of the pertinent information that can be elicited and possibly some opinion may emerge from the comments section, time will, as always, reveal all.

Snow Patrol - Wow
Closing Comments: Wrong Again!
Ironically, remember to tune in for "The Fly's" funeral, live on Monday, at 10:00am.
However, before that, be sure to visit this weekend. I have a special guest weekend blogger, scheduled to muck things up a bit.
As for today:
The financials did well, while tech sucked balls.
The downward momentum is staggering, and the margin calls are piling in.
Unfortunately, because of this close, we are set up for a swift thrashing Monday morning--around 10:00am.
In closing, "The Fly" has like two stocks worth looking at, as of now: WBD and CLX.
We're entirely fucked. Enjoy the weekend.
NOTE: Stocks are for asshats.
NOTE II: BEHOLD!
How 'bout a Late Day Rally?
Fly Buys: RIMM, VMW, VMI, BWLD, GRMN
I'm taking some risk here, betting we do not crash through the floor boards. Believe me, talking to people, everyone is nervous, thinking the "end is near."
So, with negativity at a fresh high, I want to be long some of the damaged leadership stocks, in anticipation of a leg up.
I could be wrong and do not recommend taking the same approach. However, buying leadership on these types of dips have proven, over and over, to be very timely and profitable trades.
As for my CFC position:
I intend to blow that fucker out on Monday or Tuesday.
NOTE: It's the strength in the financials that has given me confidence to put wheel barrow dollars to work.
NOTE II: BWLD @ $28.39, VMW @ $88.65, VMI @ $81.02, RIMM @ $114.35, GRMN @ $ 87.13.

The Market Sucks; But We're Still Going North
Crazy rallies and knife to the chest drops get played out fast. After all, Thanksgiving is coming.
That's right, I'm basing my entire investment philosophy around a day, when fat fucks stuff their faces with greasy turkey legs and candied yams.
Not, but seriously, I'm too busy for this sell off shit. Will someone please inform the appropriate parties, "The Fly" would like the market to go higher again, so that he could make fun of his bearish friends?
Thanks in advance.
As you can see, the market is cutting through year to date gains, like a hot knife through goat cheese. All of the leadership stocks are being pimp smacked, like little bitches.
Quite frankly, as opposed to being "unfrank," the long term prospects for this market look dire, as they always do during times of duress.
What to do?
The new double inverse China etf, FXP, looks like fun. But, it's probably too late to be shorting down here.
Shorting down here is equal to carrying a sign in Beijing, which reads: "The Communist Government of China Can go Fuck Themselves, Every Which Way, But Loose."
That shit would be a bad idea, as is shorting stocks, fucktard style, down here.
The next move is up, thanks to the wonderful day of gluttony.

Fly Flashback: Topping Patterns
However, from time to time, "The Fly" looks at a few, while eating crunchy dill pickles.
At any rate, back on 10/3, I warned you, and myself, of topping out formations--during the 7th week of a run.
DON'T TRY TO REFUTE THIS SHIT.
The data was derived from multiple "bubbly runs" in speculative sectors, like ethanol, internets, nanotech, etc.
The lesson to be learned: stick with your disciplines and try not to fall into the "this time may be different" fucktarded type of mentality.
Had I listened, I would have sold short Chinese stocks, instead of buying them--cupfucker style.
Chris Brown - Kiss Kiss
Call me crazy, but for a trade, I want to be long the financials, specifically CFC, MER and MS.
Also, the sell off in HANS is way over done. Luckily, for me, I bought some today, near $39.
It's hard to ignore stocks that just won't go down, like POT, MON, OPY and all of the solar fuckers. However, I warn you, all trends break--at some point.
My game plan is simple:
Milk the ensuing short covering rally, while actively setting up short sales--once the rally fades.
My best guess, we run until Thanksgiving, then slide until Christmas.
Top pick: VMI.
Fly Buy: VMI
Disclaimer: If you buy VMI because of this post, you'll go bankrupt. And, you may lose money.

We're going into an election year. No fucking way does this slippery slope get greased up, prior to the election.
So, understand there are greater powers out there, very conspiratorial, who want status quo; I'm calling a short term, tradeable, bottom.
Just like that.
Back to my whiskey bottle.
Race to Zero
Let's have it out:
VMW back to $50, today-- fuckfaces.
GOOG, BIDU, GS and ISRG going down $50--today.
BWLD, HANS, RIMM, AAPL, TBSI, DEG, CROX, WM, C, NVDA, ORCL, MLNX, KNXA, NTRI, AMKR, ZUMZ, HURC and everything else-- to zero--today.
Life is mostly about choices and stupid people. When the two are combined, one ends up owning stocks.

Sector Spotlight: Retail
Yeah, everything is fucking great, with the exception of 95% of companies that report earnings. Naturally, of course, there is tremendous demand for anything solar. However, aside from that, this market has the look and taste of shit-pop.
Just know and understand, if you are long a stock that misses earnings, even by a single penny, it's going down 30%.
Fuck you, you're dead (BID, HANS, ZUMZ).
Which leads me to my next suggestion:
Sell short the spikes. Fuck it, the trend has reversed; the tape is broken.
All of these retailers are on the precipice of destruction, with the exception of GYMB--since Mrs. Fly owns it.
Finally, it's worth mentioning, CSCO is a homo again. Sell it all; then sell it again.
Stocks are for Jerks
I sold most of my position yesterday, but this is just terrible.
Generally, beverage companies are good tells on a nations economy.
In short, this economy is in the shitter.
Buy it back @ $39.

Fly Announcement: The Grand Finale
Proper attire is demanded.
I intend to reveal certain things about "The Fly," and detail why it makes sense to burn this fucking blog down to the ground.
Also, do not miss this weekend's guest blogger, who will be sure to entertain, in a soul grinding sort of way.
In short, "fuck you, I quit."
Alkaholiks: The Flute Song
I was making so much money today, going short my own positions; I ended up doing the running man and the cabbage patch dances-- late in the day-- thanks to sheer happiness.
Seriously, I was dancing on graves, while spitting at my trader/servant.
Fuck, down 370 points. Gee, life is great.
As you know, us short sellers deserve this shit. I'm short every financial, both private and publicly traded, while long gold bricks and other shit.
God willing, HANS will miss earnings and gap down $40.
This is it boys, the market is done.
Long live Bob Pasani.
NOTE: During the composition of this post, "The Fly" was restrained at his local mental institution.

Position Update: HANS
There is no way in sweet hell will "The Fly" give away his hard fought gains in HANS.

"Come Out to Play"
This is what a bear market looks like.
Aside from a few fucktarded tech stocks, nothing is working--going into the best time of year to invest.
Everything from financial to retail, and the stuff that's in between, is getting skinned alive.
It's really hard to be a big fucking believer in this market, after seeing one terrible earnings report after another.
Like the decline in the dollar and rise in commodities, betting against credit/housing related names have been automatic.
PMI to zero.
ABK to zero.
CFC to negative 20.
In short, you're better off playing battleship in your toilet bowl, than fucking around with this market.

The Important Matter of Bad Nicknames
A long time ago, "little Fly" was a kick ass baseball player, a pitcher of course.
I must have been 12 years old, on the mound, striking batters out--as usual.
Then, all of a sudden, my Mother started screaming from the stands-- a nickname that I had never heard before.
Much to my chagrin, she was cheering: "go Scooter go, go Scooter gooo!"
What the fuck!
As you know, being the rock star little league pitcher that I was, this was an alarming turn of events--having my own Mother heckle me, with queer nicknames, from the stands.
I stepped off the mound and gave my Mother one of the looks--but it was too late.
The other team had caught on, appreciating the femininity of this nickname, and began chanting "Scooter."
Being the level headed pre-teen that I was, I planned to ignore them, while mowing down their bullshit lineup.
But, then it happened.
The Scooter shit reached a fevered pitch, with laughter everywhere, making "little Fly" embarrassed/agitated.
I stepped off the fucking mound and threw a fastball into the opposing teams dugout, screaming: "fuck you assholes."
Shortly thereafter, "little Fly" was removed from the game, kicking and screaming, ordered to leave the ball park.
As I walked home with my Mother, all I heard was "Scooter, Scooter."

Late Night Demand
Have some class.
NOTE: Failure to adhere to "The Fly's" new dress code policy will result in the seizure of your dry cleaning.
"Dollar Danks" has it all figured out
However, unlike other fuck bag stocks, iiG will rally back hard, as Danks and Co. work diligently to settle the lawsuit with California.
That's right ladies and gents, iiG is not permitted, by law, to do business in CA.
What a wonderfuck of a business.
Anyway, my point: "Dollar Danks" is not to be fucked with, long term. He'll pull some rabbit out of his ass and sell his criminal enterprise-- to some unsuspecting rich-er guy.
NOTE: I just listened to the conference call. Apparently "Chuck Bennett" strikes again, asking all sorts of fucktarded questions. "Chuck" begins his ranting at 39:16. Click here for the conference call archive.
May God bless "Chuck Bennett."

Position Update: AAPL
Can anything stop AAPL?
$200 by tomorow?
Life would be grand, if "The Fly" had all his stupid, filthy eggs in RIMM, AAPL, BIDU and ISRG-- with a few side trades in oil and gold bricks.
Instead, I keep trying to find 'the next one,' while the 'current one' continues to mint money.
"Is this still CNN?"
Fly Buys: VMI
Disclaimer: If you buy VMI because of this post, your neighbors will accuse you of not being 'green enough.' And, you may lose money.
Position Update: iiG
However, something just dawned on me.
My so called 'sources' on this stock encouraged me to be long, last quarter, only to see it get shredded-- post earnings. Now, I'm hearing "earnings are priced in."
Which leads me to George Costanza.
Maybe I should do the opposite of what these hatfuckers are suggesting?
Position Update: MVIS
This is my game plan, plain and simple:
- Ignore the stock until December.
- Buy more, ahead of CES.
- Sell 3/4th's of my position, after CES
In short, I am bewildered at the lack of insider buying in the name, especially since this is a concept stock--with a very high ceiling.
I'm not mad at the company. I made a lot of money in the shares, over the past 18 months. But, I can't fuck around with small cap concept names, without the conviction of management being displayed, via stock purchases.
As you know, there are many other stocks worth accumulating, especially after this recent decline. If you are long the stock, I suggest putting it on the back burner, until January, then consider taking some off the table.
Miss Earnings= You're Dead
I mean, some of these companies are guiding higher, only to see their stock cut in half. What the fuck?
Knowing how fucktarded the market is, these CEO's should just slash and burn estimates for future quarters, in order to lower the bar and crush them, like Stalin, down the road.
Looking at the declines in BWLD, SMSI, CROX, CTSH, FTK, SNDK etc., is reason enough to seek religion and get on the fucking sidelines-- for the big 'fuck you, you're dead' day.
I know there are many, many more blow-ups than the ones mentioned above. Feel free to add some in the comments section, or don't.
Either scenario is perfectly acceptable with me.
In short, I want no part of any earnings play, including HANS. It simply isn't worth the risk of having your balls lit on fire.
Consider that when tea bagging the earnings bucket-- which is filled with kerosene.
Mr. 52 Week Low: "The Donald"
Sector Spotlight: Energy
In case you're wondering, I have VMI next to MVIS on my monitor, which may explain the sudden gayness in the stocks behavior. However, I just moved the fucker and put it next to RIMM.
Higher prices here we come.
How about that gold rally?
Exactly. Fuck you and your stupid gold stocks.
Within a real commodity sector, oil, stocks are flying. Right here, right now, I like SU, GHM, GLF, UPL and OII.
Also, seeing the metal stocks green, I'm betting VMI will give me 3-4 bucks to the upside, by the closing bell.
Finally, we have a rally going in the financials, specifically ABK, JPM, BSC and GS. My guess, should C go positive, we'll have us a full fledged short covering rally-- to the tune of 1.5%.
NOTE: CROX has to be cheap, no?
