Morning Randoms


  • Chinese food for thought.

  • Pension detention!

  • Aunt Fannie got a little drunk at yesterday's picnic and created quite the Buzz in the 'Ville.

  • S&P 1275, BKX 106 and XBD 200 has been the triple lindy technical thorn in Hoofy's side. While technicals are but one of four primary metrics (fundies, structural, psychological), they'll offer a framework with which to trade. Remember Minyans, past resistance is future support.

  • You can't be Sirius (SIRI)!

  • A bit of market perspective: If the S&P saw the volatility in silver yesterday, it would be down 50 handles. If it saw the volatility in Nat Gas, it would be off 500 handles this past month.

  • Hoofy just walked by and said "Hey Toddo, isn't it possible that some of the overcapacity and structural disconnects have been "worked off" as a function of time rather than price these last few years?" From a price standpoint, the overbought condition from 2003 has been. From a debt, compression and psychology standpoint, I think they've intensified.

  • Vince Young is a stud--no doubt about it. But I still think Reggie Bush should have won the Heisman as the best college player this year. And, from what I've read about Vince, he would take the trade (Nat'l Champs over Heisman) any day and twice on Sunday.

  • Sense a big move coming but don't know which way? Volatility levels are still uber-cheap (not universally, but in many cases). Stock replacements or married puts (mallied?) still makes a ton of sense for those suited for the Greeks.

  • TomKat! "Good morning. The SPX reached a new high yesterday as it tried to push out of its consolidation phase. Tech stocks have exhibited upside leadership; however, both the GSTI Software Index and SOX remain in consolidation phases. We question the prospects for positive follow-through for BMC despite the typically bullish setup on the chart. TD Sequential™ "sell" signals have appeared on charts of the NDX, the Internet Index and the AMEX Disk Drive Index. We would keep a close eye on CSCO as it tests its 200-day moving average." Katie Townshend, Chief Market Technicians, MKM Partners.

  • I'll be scooting near the opening to publicly unveil the new MV site at Dr. J's Aspen optionfest. Minyans away from the mountains won't have to wait long to see the snazzy new digs--we're officially in the snap count and expect to unleash the beast in a little more than a week.

  • It shouldn't be too difficult to pick these guys out of a line-up!

  • I can't shake the feeling that a big move is around the corner for equities. Perhaps that's not a shocker given the technical juncture, commodity volatility or (what I perceive to be) the heightened state of tension, but my antennae is vibin' hard.

  • President Fish laid out his freshest media flava yesterday. Those involved with SunMicro (SUNW), Google (GOOG), TiVo (TIVO), Cablevision (CVC) or Gemstar-TV Guide (GMST) would be wise to peruse it.

  • Speaking of SunMicro, the chatter in the Street is that they'll get Googled while at the Consumer Electronic Show today. The stock broke out yesterday but some fast hands will likely wring if no alliance is announced.

  • "As the NDX nears resistance, the hourly charts are overbought with momentum contractions. These are likely to result in consolidations, not overt weakness, but it's worth noting for short-term players. Yesterday's volatility alerts were dominated by Technology, several emerging from the bases that we mentioned previously make us more bullish on the sector's prospects for 2006." Lehman technician Jeff DeGraaf

  • Fare ye well as you find your way to our requisite two day respite. I'll see you in the 'Ville bright eyed and bushy tailed on Monday.
