Random Thoughts


How you shape your risk is dependent on your time horizon and risk profile.

  • Energy has become 11% of the S&P, up from 9% two years ago. I've long believed that this complex will one day reassume top weighting in the S&P, a status currently enjoyed by the financials.

  • While the banks continue to lag (the BKX is basically flat), the brokers (GS, BSC) and beta (RIMM, AAPL, GOOG) are trying to turn the curve. Watch these names as proxies as the expiration hangover subsides.

  • Near-term levels in the S&P? 1540 below, natch, and 1548.50 and 1555 above.

  • Hey Professor Guy Adami- you Fluor me!

  • How you shape your risk is dependent on your time horizon and risk profile. We're happy to share what we're doing in the 'Ville but how you stand is a function of where you sit. I never understood how anyone, on TV or otherwise, can offer specific advice without understanding the unique needs of those in their audience.

  • Keep an eye on those semis. When stocks (sectors) don't participate in jiggy tapes, it typically implies supply. They've had a heckuva run, we know, and they're approaching a big level.

  • Man, it's nosty in Gotham today. Between the midtown volcanos and the noisy, crowded, bitter streets, it makes one wonder why anyone would call this city home.

  • Other than the bombers, of course, who have scored 45 runs in two days. You can almost hear the heartbeats quickening in Beantown...

  • Is that a new belt you're wearing or are you just happy to see me?

  • I sense a deeper downside reflection as I trade around my short-side bias. Still, I've got defined risk (coming up quick) as discipline must always trump conviction.

  • "Very interesting action internally today in point and figure terms. Despite the green on the screen, new point and figure sell signals are leading new buy signals handily, 16 to 5. Even overall sell signals are leading, which is somewhat unusual on an upday, 31 to 18." Professor Pepe Depew on today's Buzz.

  • Of course the global growth story is still in tact. It will be until the tape says otherwise. The only problem with this train of thought is that the market is a leading indicator. That's why, in Minyanville, we try to provide the financial news you need to know before you know you need it.
