This is my type of tape!


  • Joannie Cunningham or Jenny Piccolo?

  • Morgan Stanley (MWD:NYSE), Qualcomm (QCOM:NASD) and International Business Machines (IBM:NYSE) are three names being tossed around by technicians.

  • Earth is the only planet not named after a God.

  • The mortgage related names--particularly Golden West (GDW:NYSE) and Countrywide Financial (CFC:NYSE)--saw some pretty heavy squeezage after last week's lending concerns.

  • Watch the master beta names--biotechs, internets and homies--for signs of quarter-end gamesmanship.

  • By sitting in front of a computer each and every day, we're apt to miss the beauty of the world and the balance it provides. I said that earlier--I just think that it bears repeating.

  • "There was a moment last night, when she was sandwiched between the two Finnish dwarves and the Maori tribesmen, where I thought, "Wow, I could really spend the rest of my life with this woman"

  • I continue to see short covering flow but there is also a fair amount of upside call buying.

  • Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeein!

  • Yesterday, an analyst at a major brokerage firm pushed Home Depot (HD:NYSE) and Lowes (LOW:NYSE) due to the stocks' historical outperformance after female-named hurricanes. That's pretty nutty.

  • Watch for the semiconductor book-to-bill after the close today.

  • Bear Stearns (BSC:NYSE), Lehman Brothers (LEH:NYSE) and AG Edwards (AGE:NYSE) all report tomorrow morning. That will offer an interesting juxtaposition of metrics for the brokerage sector.

  • The rumortrage in the marketplace is reminiscent of bubbles past.

  • After tomorrow's morning post, I'll likely be out for the better part of the session. Mr. Soros will be signing the all-star guitar and I'm gonna relieve Fokker of his duties for the day. What are the odds of a sashimifest?

  • Two days left in the animated auction!

  • Be careful of what you wish for.

  • If they can't get 'em down, the tape could Viagra...but the breadth is noticeably different than it was yesterday.

  • Verbil Kint once said the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. I suppose he could say the same about the bear market.
