Doin' It Bloggystyle: Aloha From Blogworld


Minyanville brings together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

Blogs themselves need no introduction, as they get as much publicity as pretty much anything these days, save maybe the latest Britney news. There's an expanding world of excellent financial blogs, covering just about everything, from global economics to swing trading. Minyanville's goal is to bring together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

Viva Bernanke! Kind of lost in the excitement over the Fed, but last Thursday marked 30 years since they faked Elvis' death. If you trust Wikipedia, that is.

  • Fed "Panic" a setup for the next leg down, wonders Financial Armageddon.
  • The Bonddad Blog notes "with all the clamor for a rate cut, rates aren't that high".
  • Nourel Roubini contends "The Forthcoming Fed Rate Cuts May Not Prevent a US Hard Landing".

It's Now Or Never

  • Slight bullish tilt 20 days out via Bill Rempel's Predictive Model.
  • Interesting takeaway from Friday's big gap up. The biggest gappers on the open were the worst to own the rest of the day, via Bespoke.
  • 100% Spike Up in the VIX, bodes pretty well, notes Ticker Sense.

Naming Names
  • Broker A gets into retail, featuring Hansen Natural (HANS) and Lindsay (LNN).
  • MadStocks with some summer specials, including Abercrombie & Fitch (ANF) and CROCS (CROX).
  • Here's my one bearish case for CROX: market penetration here in NJ for the 6 and under set borders on 99.9%, not sure who is left to buy a pair. Maybe the real long is the companies that makes the pins the kids put in them!
  • And hey, if you're in Chicago, Jeff at Options Addict is having a get together tonight.
So apparently there is this guy that has a TV show who had a tirade once that got over a trillion YouTube hits. Anyway, seems like Barron's devoted a cover story to checking out his actual stock picking record.
  • Well, if you divine 7,000 stock opinions, some are bound to be correct. Like this one in Jones Soda (JSDA), as StockTagger notes.
  • Some other defensives of Cramer include 24/7 Wall Street.
  • "This is about a lifelong process, not about every single individual pick for a week or a month or a year. He's trying to get you to think about the process, and yes, of course, recommendations and opinions come into play. "
  • And Blogging Stocks.
  • "The idea of ranking Cramer largely misses his importance as a media and Wall Street figure. Cramer is about research. He is about individual investors learning the things that institutions know, and about thinking like a professional investor."
  • I realize these last two are what the show says it does, but c'mon ......"Buy Buy Buy Buy"...?
  • ValuePlays sides with Barron's. "I think that Cramer's show is purposely vague enough so that the picks cannot be tracked and if they are, there is enough ambiguity there allow to for a defense. Barron's had a well-written piece that did the best job I have seen to date tracking his picks. I will neither say they are right or wrong because of the reason I gave before: the show is just too ambiguous to really say."
