DifferenceGood morning.
The stock market had its steepest and shortest bear market last year, with a contraction of nearly 30 percent within the span of a month.  Now, a year into a recovery, the rally in stocks has started to slow.
One reason? Growing policy uncertainty.  Stocks sold off Friday as a Fed President made the case for housing getting into bubble territory and a need for interest rate hikes next year.  Just like in the early 2020s, in the post-financial crisis rebound, fears of reduced monetary policy are usually good to create a pullback in markets.
We’re still a long way from a healthy, fully-reopened economy.  But the amount of stimulus this time around and stepping back from that will create challenges… and market fears that create long-term buying opportunities.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Pile of WeedsKeeping my losses small is one of the best ways to protect my gains.  It can be hard to let go of our losing trades … but essential. 1

Working with a new “real time market investment university program” on my PC called VectorVest.  It’s under a trial subscription now, but in weeks the Monthly Subscription [$137 USD for RealTime or $87 USD End-of-Day] will kick in!

I can cancel anytime!

The investments I’m watching right now are all resources stocks on the TSX — MNY, TSN, and GRG.

Nothing bought yet, just watching.

1. Most individual investors… They let their weeds become bigger weeds.  And they trim their roses before they even start to bloom.  Do that long enough, and all you’re left with is a worthless pile of weeds.

Good morning. Hedge funds have been selling their tech stocks for 9 of the past 10 sessions, based on brokerage data.  What’s more, these funds have been selling more than they own, essentially going short.  That’s a huge reason for the weakness in tech in the past few weeks, even as the overall markets remain near all-time highs. The last time funds were this short was back in late December, right before a surge in some smaller-cap tech names in January and February.  Based on this data, traders may want to look at some call options on the tech space

Good morning. Most sectors of the economy have been on fire this year.  But, there’s one area that’s steeply in a bear market.  It’s the media, more specifically the news media.  Cable news outlets have reported viewer drops as much as 50 percent.  And the New York Times Company (NYT) reported a sharp slowdown in growth. It’s no surprise that the news media benefited in the past few years from the public’s interest in all things Donald Trump.  Now, with Trump out of the White House and the media avoiding stories about him, it’s no surprise that viewers are going

Good morning. It’s been a great earnings season.  But companies like Amazon (AMZN) are now in correction territory, down 10 percent, since reporting record blowout numbers.  Other big tech names are in the same spot.  And smaller tech plays?  They’re likely already in a bear market. It’s a combination of factors at work.  The first is rising inflation numbers. The second is the prospect of higher interest rates to curb inflation.  And finally there’s the fact that companies are coming off of earnings that look great compared to a year ago at the start of the pandemic.  All these factors

Good morning. Online auction site eBay (EBAY) became huge in the 1990s thanks to the demand for Beanie Babies.  As the central site for that fad, the company was able to expand and survive the internet bubble. Now, the company is looking to enable cryptocurrency payments, to better serve its customers.  It’s also looking to break into the NFT, or non-fungible token market.  NFTs are digital assets like a picture or song.  While they can be copied, blockchain data provides the owner of the NFT with the assurance that they are, in fact, the original owner.  NFTs have been big

After a major sell-off like we’ve seen, it stands to reason that some stocks will be trading at levels that will make them attractive for investors and will have better prospect than others.  When evaluating companies right now, you must consider how opaque the earnings picture looks. The more opaque, the more likely they
