Get On Board, Get Down With This Reality

So, last night, I went to the 8th-grade dance as a card dealer, and it was kick. Watching the future revel and let loose was fun, but something else made me smile as well. The band consisted of 8th grade kids, and they were good. Interestingly, though,...

Where Are We and the Market Going?

Today is the last day of school for our 14-year old. He is moving on from the 8th grade to high school, after a long summer of play, that is. Tonight is the dance, the last festive and public gathering for this 8th-grade flock of budding teens. I have...

Follow the Money, or Don’t

One of the maxims in this business is “Follow the money.” One cannot do this on a general basis, meaning the “money’ is not a singular entity that moves from here to there. Market money flows much like tributaries from a major river, away from the...

Go With the Flow of Summer

Irony is a word a writer can love, true, but as a concept, most anyone can appreciate it. I find the market unsettling, which I find ironic. The irony here is in the process of settling into its new higher levels, the market is acting unsettled....

It’s Another Monday …

It’s another Monday, and if my research is correct, today is one more blah day in many for most all of us. The average person will see about 4,040 Mondays in their lifetime. And outside of the few short years before you start school and the time you...

Stick With the Fundamental Numbers

Does anyone remember the word “jones,” as it relates to addiction, or, perhaps more accurately, intense desire? Back in the day, we would say, “I am jonesing” for this or that, meaning we needed to have it to satisfy an intense desire. The market is...

Let’s Just Chill Out

Goodness, the weather has been stunningly beautiful here in California. It is one big reason I live here. Okay, so the weather is good and the market is, well, shoring up, two good things to start this Wednesday.    This just in… We interrupt your...

The Rest of the Story

Man-oh-man, three-day weekends blast right by. I mean I get all relaxed and the next thing I know I am watching the market flow and typing away. Oh! Speaking of that, watching the market flow, that is, it is off to a big start this morning. The S&P...

Something Is in the Air

I feel a shift in the air, a slight breeze coming from the north, the land where markets settle in, where markets find a place to roost. Maybe it is just wishful thinking, my optimistic view portraying something that is not real, but it appears to me...

Keep Your Mind Open

Once again, the S&P 500 is trading near the top of its recent range. Maybe it is a follow through on yesterday’s big leap or maybe it is the decent economic data out of China and Europe. Then again, maybe it is Fed signaling “steady as she goes.” It...

All you Gotta Do to Be Safe is Buy It

Normally, I simply mark those emails as spam and move on, but yesterday, I decided to watch the latest apocalyptic story. The email points out that because of the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) 99% of us will start paying a 30% additional tax...

Home Improvement Is Not Underwater

Home Depot topped the mark on earnings by a penny, but the “news” is hardly bad for the giant retailer. The results came in short of expectations but the home improvement retailer said May sales were "robust" and raised its full-year earnings forecast....

Should Be an Interesting Week

I feel good this Monday morning, which is a fine way to start this week, another wild week in the market, no doubt. Why would this week be different than last, or any week before that in the last eight or so? Sure, Putin has actually pulled his troops...

Up and Down To a Great View

Yesterday, the bears were fairly thorough, I would say and the bulls rolled over, or, should I say, bulled over rather easily. The bull assassination was done so swiftly, and with such precision-like accuracy, that I thought the bears must have hired a...
