FinanceGood morning.
The past decade has seen a rather unusual trading strategy emerge. It’s one that’s gotten noticed and has become more popular than ever.  It’s a simple strategy too.  All you have to do is identify the most-shorted stocks on the market, wait for the market to have one of its periodic pullbacks, and go long on those companies.
For whatever reason, those stocks have tended to have the strongest rebounds.  That’s likely because with so much short interest, it doesn’t take a lot of volume to cause a big move higher.  Typically, going long the most-shorted names has been great at the start of an uptrend, but the move fades fast.
Now, we’re seeing retail investors drive these stocks higher, in a development likely to cause hedge funds to either rethink their strategies of shorting a company into bankruptcy, or investing in better lobbyists.  Until then, it’s a strategy worth considering.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Fed Sponsored Speculation: Real Interest Rates Are -4.1%, Lowest Since 1980 –Mike Shedlock,MishTalk
“Real” means inflation adjusted, subtracting the Fed Funds Rate from the CPI.  Consider housing prices and rates are even deeper into negative territory… [Read Here]

Mother of All SleepingGood morning.
I hope all finds you well as we begin another session.  There was a headline used by Marketwatch that described the movement in the market with the phrase “the unbearable lightness of the stock market.”  As the market melts higher, is it unbearable?  No matter if your bullish or bearish on the market, there is a sense of unbearableness to the way it’s trading.  The unnaturalness leaves everyone somewhat dissatisfied regardless if they’re making money or not.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Walkin' the high-road

What weighs more?  A pound of fat?  Or a pound of muscle?

I don’t know.  But I do know this.  Putting on a pound of fat is a lot more fun than putting on a pound of muscle.

But you might ask, “How would you know?  You’ve never put on a pound of muscle!”

Good point.  But for now, I will take someone else’s word for it.

Caryl and I went for a short walk that took us around in a circle of 10+ kms.

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.
