Stocks move strongly higher on belief in a stimulus deal

I'm willing to bet against the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny, but in this market, in the very short term, I'm not willing to bet against the market's faith that there will be another coronavirus stimulus package--soon--to boost the U.S. economy and prevent an economic stall. Today the Standard & Poor's 500 closed up […]

Are tech stocks the new hedge against slow economic growth?

The economic news today was at best "not terrible." Initial claims for unemployment for the week showed a job market recovery that has stalled. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi adjourned their talks for another day without bridging the yawning gap between Republican and Democratic plans for another round of coronavirus stimulus […]

Stocks lose much of early enthusiasm but still finish in the green

Stocks take a while but deliver expected bounce today

This morning it looked like we might not get the bounce I expected today after the Monday morning sell off and Monday afternoon recovery.

Big tech takes back its gains from yesterday

The Standard & Poor's 500 was down 1.76% and the NASDAQ Composite fell 1.99% today. But the worst damage was among the big tech names that had led the rally higher and that had bounced yesterday. Microsoft (MSFT) was down 2.80%. Amazon (AMZN) gave up 2.86%. Nvidia (NVDA) lost 3.17%. Apple (AAPL) dropped 3.26. That […]

Stocks try another rotation again today–I’m not sure this one will stick with employment claims and August jobs report still due this week

At the close today, the Standard & Poor's 500 was up another 1.54%. Putting this question at the top of many investors' and traders' minds: Is there any way to participate in this blow out rally without real adding an unacceptable amount of risk? The 5.83% drop in Tesla (TSLA) shares today on news that […]
