Still selling Intrexon (now Precigen) even though the 293% gain yesterday wasn’t real

Frankly, my first reaction was to think it was a misprint, especially because while the ticker still read XON, the name of the attached stock had changed from Intrexon to Precigen. And it was. A misprint, that is. The print yesterday showed that the stock, a member of my Volatility Portfolio since November 9, 2018, had […]

Gold in ETFs nears record; what’s next for the yellow metal?

I think today is just a pause in the China-coronavirus selling; I’m selling JD.Com out of my Volatility Portfolio today on the bounce.

In my thinking we've still got a way to go before markets can breathe a true sigh of relief and put coronavirus fears behind them. And move onto worrying about other things like economic growth rates in China, rising debt levels, and earnings growth for U.S. stocks in the first and second quarters of 2020. […]

Selling emerging markets short ETF EUM out of my Volatility Portfolio

I don't know whether you've been able to hear it over all the other market noise--All the shouting on Brexit, for example--but there is a distinct and increasingly loud call from Wall Street that 2020 is the year to get back into emerging market assets. I don't happen to agree with a lot of the […]

Exclusively on JAM. This post won't run anywhere else. Ever. First, chip stocks led the market upward. From October 8, 2019, through November 15, the […]

Adding Xilinx to my Volatility Portfolio as one last FOMO pick through the end of the year

On November 6 I added chip maker Xilinx (XLNX) to my Volatility Portfolio as one last FOMO pick to go with Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) and Cirrus Logic (CRUS). The stock closed that day at $93.77. It closed essentially unchanged at $93.29 today. My argument for the timing of this buy is that investors and especially […]

Adding JD.Com to my Volatility Portfolio on strength of Singles’ Day performance and ahead of Friday’s earnings report

Last time I owned Alibaba (BABA) e-commerce competitor JD.Com (JD) I got a 25% short-term pop. I think it's time to go back to that trade again. JD.Com sold $29.17 billion in goods during the recently completed Singles' Day shopping frenzy. That was a new record for JD.Com and even through the company's sales volume […]

Tech stocks acting like they’re good to rally to the end of the year

I'm using my Volatility Portfolio pick Cirrus Logic (CRUS) as an indicator of the trend in technology stocks--particularly chip stocks--through the end of 2019. And right now that indicator is pointing up. On November 1, the company's shares jumped to $72.43 from $58.49 on way better than expected earnings. That was a 23.8% move to […]
