Random Thoughts


It'll take all I got to get through S&P 1050!


  • After losing game 2 of 1975 World Series to even the Series at 1-1 with the Reds, Bill "Spaceman" Lee was asked how he would characterize the World Series so far. His reply "Tied."

  • BIG semiconductor night: Intel (INTC:NASD), Novellus (NVLS:NASD) and Teradyne (TER:NYSE) all state their case.

  • Rap artist Sean "Puffy" Combs had his first job at age two when he modeled in an advertisement for Baskin-Robbins ice-cream shops.

  • I'm hearing that a large macro hedgie bear has flipped and leveraged long.

  • The S&P has been in a relatively tight band since the October 3rd gap higher. Basing (before blast off) or churning (directly under the broadening top)? The bears have the "edge" under S&P 1050 (near-term) and Hoofy will stake his claim above it. Again--a piece (higher) doesn't eliminate Boo's potential payday, it just lowers the immediate odds.

  • Tomorrow morning: General Motors (GM:NYSE). Tomorrow afternoon: Apple (AAPL:NASD), International Business Machines (IBM:NYSE), QLogic (QLGC:NASD) and Seibel (SEBL:NASD).

  • Price targets on the Burned Razor? How does a start from S&P 1050-1070 and a pullback to S&P 950ish (before the Snapper and Slapper).

  • What will motivate the supply? Are earnings too obvious?

  • Minyan tees were spotted in Arizona (gym) and London (pub). Have you sported your favorite critter lately?

  • I don't have the volume turned up on my television but some guy just held up a stained pink sweater. Man, I've got a dirty mind sometimes.

  • If this is a strong dollar policy, I'd hate to see a weak dollar policy.

  • Will somebody please wake up Alphonso Soriano?

  • Julian Robertson was about two weeks early (covering his massive shorts in the spring of 2000).

  • Gold $370 is a shaping up as the near term-support now.

  • Do you think Sam the Butcher ever snuck sleepovers at the Brady's?

  • My cat Phoebe just called to let me know that Intel was gonna report "better" earnings. (read: who doesn't know this by now?)

  • A big howdy to the Collier clan of Stephenville, Texas!

  • I've been keying on the financials today and they have no budge to 'em.

  • Front month punts provide a great two-way hedge.

  • Are you watching this Countrywide Financial (CFC:NYSE)?

  • Not to be forgotten, Beeks will drop off the Empire manufacturing (exp. 16), Advanced retail sales (exp. -.1%, ex-autos .4%) and the tan book tomorrow.

  • And you thought I forgot Random Thoughts...

  • If you never saw a Dead show, you've missed an American culture icon.

  • And you think tomorrow is busy? Wait till you see Thursday's line-up!

  • The VXO (volatility) stochastics are hooking at the bottom while the S&P stochies are twistin' at the top. That doesn't mean they can't go higher (obviously) but if you can define your risk (via options or price levels)...

  • It was very cool of Neil Glassman to take all of his "best" accounts to dinner last night.

  • Is it me or does Microsoft (MSFT:NASD) still trade heavy?

  • We'll be jammin' into the close (earnings) so please bear with the critters.

  • Coming soon: Daisy Cakes!

  • Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeine!
