Can Anything Hurt this Market?
Today’s market was lower from the start and accelerated into the morning until just before noon we made a low of -388 before we started to see any support. I didn’t see any specific news other than the overall set-up of strong US$, weak Yen, falling interest rates and over valuation. We spent the rest of the day fighting back to finish -128.05 (.44%), NASDAQ -66.22 (.67%), S&P 500 -12.92 (.38%), the Russell +3.50 (.21%) and DJ Transports +89.72 (.82%). All of the indexes finished ¾ up on their ranges. Amazingly, the market internals were positive, and not just small, with NYSE 1.7:1 and NASDAQ a bit less so at 1.3:1. The DJIA was not so great with 21 down, 8 up, and WMT unchanged. The biggest losers were GS -31, AAPL -23, UNH -22, MSFT -20 and BA-14DPs. The only double-digit gainer was HD +23. While all this includes some major divergences, you need to remember that it’s still “earnings season,” and the strength may look good now, but its continued gains is absolutely harmful to all companies with international exposure. It will be the new “excuse” for CEO’s to lower guidance to set the bar lower. Another issue that is perplexing is the relationship of strong economic numbers and falling yields. Relative strength in bonds and proxies like utilities and real estate is not a great sign, regardless of what Mr. Trump thinks is better for the DJIA, his sole barometer of his success.
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights.
SECTORS: Other names in the news: The early news was the MS deal to buy ETrade for stock. It gives MS access to a much broader base of customers (although I think MS will be surprised to see how many of their clients also did business “away” from them) and the opportunity to capture more “Wealth management” business. MS finished $43.75 -2.56 (4.6%) and ETFC was $54.73 +9.80 (21.8%). As mentioned here last night, Viacom’s poor earnings made it the biggest loser in the S&P, finishing $29.29 -6.38 (17.9%).
Evidently, the sale of only 55% of Victoria’s Secret disappointed holders of LBrands, but the departure of the CEO, Les Wexler is probably also a loss. Wexler owns 70% of LB shares and the company’s retention of 45% of VS will allow them to benefit from the private equity firm Sycamore’s ability to right that brand.
BIOPHARMA: was HIGHER with BIIB +4.13, ABBV +.55, REGN +3.16, ISRG +10.21, MYL -.23, TEVA +.67, VRTX +1.85, BHC -1.65 (5.88%) on a loss and plans to refinance some debt, INCY +2.69, ICPT -.47, LABU +2.20, and IBB $123.65 +1.13 (.92%).
CANNABIS: stocks were HIGHER with TLRY +1.28, CGC -.19, CRON +.07, GWPH +2.34, ACB +.07, PYX -.09, NBEV +.15, CURLF -.03, KERN +.08, and MJ $16.60 +.22 (1.34%).
DEFENSE: was LOWER with the only mover over 1% TDY +5.46 (1.41%) and ITA $238.02 +1.69 (.72%).
RETAIL was MIXED with M +.26, JWN +.57, KSS +.17, DDS +1.12, JCP unch., WMT -1.81, TGT -.43, TJX +.35, RL -.81, UAA -.16, LULU +3.22, TPR -.06, CPRI -.54, and XRT $45.22 +.21 (.47%). FAANG and Big Cap: were HIGHER with GOOGL +5.43, AMZN +19.33, AAPL +5.10, FB +.43, NFLX -.86, NVDA +19.03 (6.42%)on earnings and upgrades, TSLA +51.10, BABA +2.15, BIDU +1.82, IBM unch, BA unch, CAT +.66, DIS +2.43, and XLK $103 +1.42 (1.4%).
FINANCIALS were HIGHER with GS +5.14, JPM +2.72, BAC +.53, MS +.79, C +.62, PNC +2.16, AIG +.67, TRV -1.37, AXP +2.13, and XLF $31.13 +.23 (.74%).
OIL, $53.49 +1.20. After yesterday’s bounce and a rally all the way back to close near the highs, today’s follow-thru we are set up to try the $54 -$55 area, and I am still bearish, I’ll use SCO, the inverse ETF. The stocks were HIGHER with the XLE $55.11 + .98 (1.87%).%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,611.80 +8.20. After the expected breakout above the closing high of $1587.90 we rallied hard to move solidly over $1,600. Today we got off to a quiet start, even with the CPI report, and after the Fed minutes we fell for about 20 minutes before the metal started higher and made new highs on the day. After a consolidation we bought the GLD 3/6 152 calls @ $1.10 and they closed $1.60.
BITCOIN: closed $10,225 -25. We broke to the upside to hit $10,620 last week and on Monday the international traders drove BTC down to $9,505 but today we rallied all the way back to close 750 off the lows and right near the highs. A solid performance. We own 750 GBTC with an average of $8.89. GBTC closed $13.13 - .33 today.
Tomorrow is another day.
