I KNOW WE DID NOTGood morning.
For retail traders interested in sticking it to the hedge funds, this week’s selloff in popular names has been tough.  While shares of GameStop are still substantially up for the year, they’re now down nearly 85 percent from their intra-day high last week.
Is the short squeeze over? Perhaps, perhaps not.  Brokerage firms are untapping the brakes they tapped last week when they halted trading in a number of names.  The real question, however, is whether or not traders will take their profits (or losses) to another brokerage firm when all is said and done.  Since most firms at least made some limits on trading last week, it’s a good question to see who the winners and losers will be going forward.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

What are the most entertaining protests?
Author: Sean Kernan
Every single month, every member of the US Congress receives an issue of Hustler Magazine.  It’s just another titty magazine, albeit an extremely famous one.

It might sound like Larry Flynt is trolling congress, and in some sense he is, but it is really a form of protest, against the sanctions that have been leveled against him in the past, including a brief stint in prison.  He is an innovator in the business of porn, running the first widely sold hardcore porn magazine.  (Source: Inside Larry Flynt’s 36-year mission to troll congress. Kohn, Michelle)
And when we talk about this little congressional prank/protest, we aren’t talking about a small operation here.  It is 535 issues, that arrive monthly at the US House of Congress, addressed to individual members.  Flynt has been doing it for almost 40 years now.  In 1984, they tried to take him to court to make him stop, but the court ruled in his favor, saying that the people are given the right to petition the government, even through the use of porn.
Typically, they require interns to dispose of them, sometimes awkwardly, walking halls looking for trash.  Though I suspect not all 535 make it to the garbage pen.

How To Win The Day With every sunrise comes opportunity.  Each day is a figurative clean slate — another chance at getting it right and moving the ball closer to the goal line.  Regardless of what happened yesterday, we have the chance to start anew each morning. And the morning sets the tone for the entire day.  You own the morning, you win the day.  The happiest, healthiest, and most successful people know this.  They embrace it, and they use it to their advantage.  They build morning rituals to establish the foundation for the day. Here are 6 things they

Good morning. The biggest bombshell from the latest Fed meeting was the acknowledgement that inflation was coming in far higher than expected.  While the Fed continues its policy of trying to talk the market into always going up, some see a tapering of its asset purchases sooner rather than later. While that doesn’t mean higher interest rates right away, what it does mean is a big slowdown in money creation and addition to the central bank’s balance sheet.  That’s likely why both bond yields and gold prices have been dropping.  While tapering might spook the market, the prospect of lower

Good morning. Yesterday’s Federal Reserve meeting minutes kept interest rates at 0 percent, as expected.  And the Fed isn’t ready to taper its asset purchases (money printing) anytime soon.  But in trying to please everyone, the central bank sometimes ends up pleasing no one. The central bank made a big revision in its inflation estimates, from 2.4 percent to 3.4 percent.  While calling higher inflation “transitory,” the market isn’t so sure.  And, after the March meeting indicated no potential for an interest rate hike until 2024, there’s now an increasing possibility of a rate hike in 2023. The only real

Good morning. Michael Burry is a fund manager best known for going against the housing market in the runup to the meltdown.  Today, Burry sees inflation as the biggest threat to the economy.  And with prior stimulus measures boosting the price of everything from stocks to housing, the biggest threat is a nudge into hyperinflation.  Burry sees that happening this year.  Burry also sees the stock market as not only the greatest market bubble of all time, but the biggest by at least “two orders of magnitude.”  As investors adjust their return expectations for inflation, that bubble may burst. Time

Good morning. Most financial news is predicated around the idea that markets are either going up or down.  But sometimes, like now, indices are largely trading sideways.  When that happens, traders will start to look for clues as to what happens when the sideways trend ends. For most market conditions, a sideways trend can last anywhere from 6-12 months in part of a broader bull market.  That looks like the case here, given that most indices are still near all-time highs.  But it’s a time to find companies that have been hit the hardest and look set for the biggest

Good morning. There’s an old Wall Street saying that the cure for high prices is… high prices.  That’s because when prices are high, competition comes into play and customers seek substitutes.  Recent inflation data showing a jump in home and car prices (both new and used), is also leading to potential buyers to hold off on making a purchase. That could reduce demand enough to keep prices from heading higher in those areas.  A slowdown in governmental assistance to the economy in the form of stimulus checks and high spending may also help nip this rising inflation in the bud.
