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.

Ten Ways To Foster Innovation In order to compete effectively, we must look for new and better ways to accomplish our mission.  We must find creative methods to delight our customers.  And we must find innovative strategies for getting more done with fewer resources. With things changing as rapidly as they are, doing things the old way won’t be profitable for very long.  To grow, we must be constantly innovating. An innovative company attracts and keeps better employees.  People want to be part of something creative.  It’s stimulating and it’s fun. Here are ten things you can do to foster

Good morning. We’re fans of following company insiders when they buy their own shares.  That’s because they only buy if they see a good value going forward.  Most company insiders are partially compensated in shares, so they have plenty of reasons to sell, from portfolio diversification to big spending bills like a second house or divorce. Overall, buying with company insiders produces excess returns compared to the market.  But they’re not the only insider group out there. Consider Congress.  Last year, two senators sold off stocks after an early hearing on Covid and before the big crash.  House Speaker Nancy

Good morning. Yesterday marked the 13th anniversary of the collapse of Lehman Brothers, a “victim” of over leverage on the US housing market.  Yesterday also marked the day when Evergrande, a Chinese real estate firm, stated that it wouldn’t pay interest on its already-collapsing bonds. For years, many have warned about the size and rate of China’s real estate buildup, from empty cities to investment homes that sit unused (one of the few places where citizens can park cash).  While we’re optimistic that the damage can be contained to China and not impact global growth too much, we also can’t

Good morning. We’ve warned for weeks that stocks are at elevated levels, and that a modest pullback would be likely.  Now, however, investor sentiment has gotten heavily bearish, for more than just a small pullback. That’s somewhat concerning, as fears of a market pullback could lead to enough profit-taking and cash-raising that it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.  However, a market so quick to get so bearish could also be a sign that there’s still a major rally ahead.  Bull markets don’t die when investors get fearful.  Rather, it’s when investors get so bullish that they go all-in at record highs.

Good morning. With Labor Day weekend over, oil prices should be trending down.  The summer driving season in North America is over, and it’s largely an American phenomenon.  However, expectations for a potentially colder-than-average winter are keeping a bid under oil prices right now. At a time when traders typically expect lower prices going forward, oil is now at a 5-week high and trending higher.  And Bank of America analysts see crude oil pumping as much as $100 per barrel under an exceptionally cold winter scenario.  It’s likely that gas prices may remain higher for longer than expected, and can

Good morning. Last week, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned that the measures underway to preserve cash at the US Treasury were likely to run out in mid-October.  Unless Congress acts to raise the debt ceiling, there could be a potentially debt cliff where a number of government programs simply don’t get paid. That’s a scenario that nearly unfolded in 2011. 10 years ago, it also provided the stock market with a flat return for the year and a closest thing to a selloff since the housing crisis two years before that.  Last week’s market weakness may be starting to reflect
