How "Insane Optimism" is at Work in the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023

By: EWI

"Stock investors are so bullish that they are..."

Many technical indicators are highly useful, yet the price moves of the stock market really boil down to two things: optimism and pessimism.

Major trend turns tend to occur when extremes are reached in either optimism or pessimism.

Most recently, optimism has been in charge. The question is: Has an extreme been reached?

QE-Light Forestalls Crisis…For Now / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

First Quarter GDP increased at only a 1.1% seasonally adjusted annual rate. That was down from 2.6% in Q4 of last year, which was down from 3.2% during Q3. Despite the clear slowdown in economic growth, there still exists a battle between Wall Street's soft-landing narrative, where inflation comes down in the context of robust growth. And the other, and more accurate scenario, where inflation falls because of a recession.

You just can't get the ROC of inflation and growth to increase when money supply growth plunges from 27% in 2021 to one that is contracting by 4%, as of the latest March data.

Banking Crisis is Stocks Bull Market Buying Opportunity / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023

By: Nadeem_Walayat

It's CPI Tuesday! We usually get a fake out move going into CPI then a reversal soon after which given that the market has been falling since the 6th of March into CPI data release then we should be setting up for a reversal higher some time after release of CP LIE which chimes with my end of the correction expectations given that both primary (3900) and secondary (3820) correction targets have been fulfilled.

Last month my CPI forecast table suggested to expect 6.28% vs actual of 6.4%. For February the table expects a sharp drop to 5.66% vs consensus of 6%, actual is probably going to be somewhere between 5.66% and 6%, so a net positive CPI data release should give weight to the next Fed rate hike being 0,25% instead of 0.5%, with the really big CPI drop coming on April's data release after which I expect inflation will become more sticky.

Could the Debt Ceiling Drama Uplift Gold Price? / Commodities / Gold & Silver 2023

By: Submissions

While the 2011 analog paints an optimistic portrait for gold, silver and mining stocks, a re-enactment of the last debacle is unlikely to unfold this time around. Back then, gold soared amid the debt ceiling chaos, while the USD Index was a major casualty. And while it’s possible lawmakers could ignite a similar event, most learn from their past mistakes.

For example, while bloated stock valuations were the Black Swan in 2000, the 2008 global financial crisis (GFC) was a housing market phenomenon, while the 2020 pandemic was a health scare. As a result, different catalysts often cause distress, and when this recession arrives, it will likely be driven by something investors least expect.

So, with the debt ceiling drama highly anticipated, it reduces the odds of the event unfolding in line with investors’ expectations. Therefore, it’s likely more semblance than substance, and the bulk of the PMs’ rallies should be in the rearview.

Despite the stock market falling as expected many target stocks have stubbornly resisted correcting to any significant degree which is probably due to flight to safety to AI tech stocks, the likes of Nvidia, AVGO, TSMC whilst others appear to have fully embraced the panic and fallen hard such as GPN where I was already over invested to 128% going into the correction but now after the free fall below $100 stand at 150% invested, Further across the board mostly small buys have lifted my exposure to 87.8% invested 12.2% cash accumulating into Google, Amazon, Qualcom, Micron, IBM, JNJ Pfizer, and higher risk stocks - GPN, KLAC, CARA, ULH. amongst others.

Stock Market Trend to New Bull Market High / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Current Trend

The S&P remains in a downtrend i.e. lower highs and lows and thus continues to target a break of 3800 on the short-term basis. In terms of swings the correction could extend to as deep as 3745 though I doubt it will go that low, more likely will bounce around between 3890 and 3780 for a few days.

Warren Buffett’s latest move might surprise you… US stocks are passing the torch... Plus, a dead-simple way to invest in this big shift…

  1. When Warren Buffett makes an unusual move… pay attention.

Buffett is likely the best investor of all time.

His firm Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.A) delivered an average annual return of 20% from 1965 to 2022, which turned a $1,000 investment into $38 million.

Buffett is known for buying large stakes in iconic American companies. He’s invested billions of dollars into brands like Apple (AAPL)Coca-Cola (KO), and American Express (AXP).

Three Reasons to Buy Shares in abrdn / Companies / Corporate News

By: Sumeet_Manhas

abrdn, the UK’s largest active asset manager, could be on the cusp of rewarding investors with substantial growth. The FTSE 100 firm’s share price has risen by 40% since October 2022, after a planned return of capital to investors helped reinstate the company’s market capitalisation to approximately $4 billion.

abrdn’s stock offers a 7.5% dividend yield, and many expect the yield to maintain or better this market-beating ratio. As such, the Edinburgh-based company is an attractive prospect to investors for the coming year.

Now US rates are on par with where they were when the S&P was trading at 4200, of course it's not as simple as that, the rate fell in response to the Fed bailout of the banking crime syndicate. Still this should be positive for stocks.

Destabilizing Debt Ensures the Financial Crisis Has Just Begun / Stock-Markets / Financial Crisis 2023

By: Michael_Pento

The debt-disabled U.S. economy cannot withstand the surge in borrowing costs, and the reduction in
money supply growth necessary to combat the record-high inflation suffered over the past few years.
Our beloved U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said she believes the American economy remains
strong and its banking system is resilient. That is, if you close your mind and overlook the recent
bankruptcy of three financial institutions. Keep in mind this is the same person who assured us that we
would never see another financial crisis in our lifetime. So, it is self-serving for her to deflect attention
away from the economic meltdown that is on the horizon.

Alas, investors who followed that strategy in 2022 saw the value of their portfolios decrease substantially.

Stock Market Sucking in Buyers / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2023

By: Monica_Kingsley

S&P 500 bears missed a good intraday opportunity after winning for 6 hrs in the regular session. For all the market breadth limping along, it was Russell 2000, financials and industrials with materials that did well, no matter what energy, precious metals and cryptos see on the horizon.

Bearish divergencies in advancing-declining issues, new high-new lows, even merely stocks above the 50-day moving averages in S&P 500 and Nasdaq – amply described yesterday together with earnings, job market and manufacturing (LEIs) data ahead, haven‘t invalidated the medium-term bearish case for stocks. For all the shrinking liquidity talked, this rally is proceeding – sell in May and go away“ seasonal effect would be weaker than usual.

(…) Disruptive tech (AI driving semiconductors) remains well placed. … So, we have tech stocks to outperform value in the current low growth environment, would the thinking go, however if you check market breadth in Nasdaq, the bearish divergence in the making is even worse than in S&P 500. It‘s the big names and semiconductors holding it up, while advance-decline line and new highs-new lows are largely struggling.

The evolution of the BMW M6 with a glimpse of technological progress / Personal_Finance / Motoring

By: Sumeet_Manhas

The 1986 BMW M635 CSi E24 is easily recognizable due to its shark-nose front end and angular interior. For car enthusiasts who appreciate classic automobiles, the initial model of the BMW M6 E24 is a valuable gem. This particular model stands out for having been equipped with an exceptional powertrain - the revered 286bhp producing M88/3 engine. Derived straight from BMW's initial generation of their iconic line up which included everything revolving around a special twin-cam-six named optioned-up car known simply as 'M'. The first-generation M6 is what it technically is called but only in America and Japan it was labeled in that way. Meanwhile, Europe had M635 CSi.

8 signs your business’ call handling is broken / Companies / SME

By: Submissions

Everyone who’s worked in an office can recall a time the phone rang and everyone froze, waiting to see who’d blink first.

The phone rang…and rang…and rang.

It’s common in any office where call handling isn’t a main part of someone’s job.

But it’s devastating for customer service and runs the risk of losing business, and alienating customers.

Putting a focus on call handling can be overlooked at a time when you’ve got so many digital communication channels available. But when it comes to it, customers still prefer to pick up the phone if they’re looking for information or want to quickly resolve a problem.

Interest Rates Should Continue To Fall, Eventually Setting Up A Bond Market Crash / Interest-Rates / US Bonds

By: Avi_Gilburt

If you have been reading my public articles on TLT over the last half a year, then you would know of my expectation to see the bond market rally into 2023, and rates falling into 2023.

When I first put this expectation out last year, many (even some of my own clients) thought I was simply crazy. With rates skyrocketing towards 5%, most were quite certain that we would easily eclipse that point, and move well towards 6% and even higher. And, of course, the reason most maintained that expectation was due to the Fed’s public position of continuing to raise rates.
