Random Thoughts




  • Are boars the most unpopular animal on the farm?

  • Dustin Roberts?

  • The longer the market meanders, the more healthy it would be from a digestive standpoint. Remember, corrections can take place as a function of time or price (although they're not mutually exclusive).

  • You use 300 muscles to balance yourself when you're standing still.

  • NDX 1515 (multiple January bottoms) is a level to watch on the downside. NDX 1560ish (recent highs) offers the mirror image of that line of scrimmage.

  • While the signals late last year were aborted (stopped out), DeMark analysis is once again flashing danger for the S&P and Dow Jones. So ya know.

  • The shower scene in About Last Night or the pool scene in Fast Times? It's all Phoebe, baby. No contest.

  • A buddy of mine was gonna play Sandisk (SNDK:NASD) long into the earnings but opted for Xilinx (XLNX:NASD) instead at the last second. Oofa!

  • We're seeing call buyers in Microsoft (MSFT:NASD) ahead of tonight's report. I'm not playing it (no edge) but I figured I'd forward the flow.

  • Silver is racing ahead 3% today. There's no sign of Black.

  • Amgen (AMGN:NASD), KLA-Tencor (KLAC:NASD), Corning (GLW:NYSE), MBNA (KRB:NYSE) and Vitesse Semi (VTSS:NASD) highlight tonight's conference call hell.

  • Did anybody see Da Ali G show last night? That's some funny stuff.

  • Airlines are flying.

  • Professor Succo and I have a (rare) out of office meeting at 1:00pm so please factor that into your afternoon post expectations. Thanks!

  • For those playing Footsie, the London exchange is underperforming its overseas peers.

  • Who's a better actor: Al Pacino or Dustin Hoffman? Does Gene Hackman make the top five? (I think so)

  • Mock. YEAH! Ing. YEAH! Bird. YEAH! Yeah. YEAH!

  • We're just about at the Dow Jones high from 2002. Right here.

  • Add General Electric (GE:NYSE) as a tape tell. It's basing right above its breakout level and if technicals exert themselves as the primary metric, the action in this name will serve as a good guide.

  • Lotsa big changes coming to the city of critters the week of February 16th. It's gonna shake up the mojo in a big way--and in many ways--so please be on the lookout for emails discussing the changes. It's all very exciting.

  • Daisy. The dairy diva. The silk milk. The mother of all milkshakes. The queen of cream!

  • Succo tells me that program trading accounts for nearly 70% of the total big board volume. That's an udderly ridiculous number.

  • Don't force it if you don't see it. And yes, I'm talking to you.

  • Grandpa Neil tells me there some meaty QQQ sellers lightening up (they bought 'em earlier). Duke & Duke!

  • Which is YOUR favorite critter tee?

  • Jam Master Jay.

  • Syracuse hoops.

  • Late for meeting...I'll be back.
