  • Dow Theory Signal Questions Bullish Economic And Market Trends [View article]
    Excellent, Chris. I was hoping you would update your Dow Theory stuff, and add some new twists with 50day MAs, etc. I attach less importance to closing prices than Dow did in his day; but even if this leeway is allowed, the DJIA just barely made it over its late 2013 high, and your central premise remains intact.

    One day does not a bear market make. Let us see how the averages, breadth, and other indicators hold up in the near future. OK to be wrong: just don't stay wrong.

  • Blue Chip Stocks Are Expensive At This Point [View article]
    Even after a 20% correction, the levels of SPY would be 150, and QQQ would be 70; above their March 2012 levels. EEEK but what a fun ride! :)

    Prudence is a virtue, especially on Wall Street. Lets see if it pays off in your case.

    Nice article Hale, you highlight some issues. If you ever read Calafia Beach Pundit he highlights the same data over a longer time period.

  • Market Consensus: Bullish At Last [View article]
    The stock market is rising IN SPITE of, not BECAUSE of, the ridiculous fiscal, monetary, and financial shenanigans of the last few years. Companies are doing exactly what they are supposed to do: find ways to make a profit. The vast majority of growth in our economy comes directly and indirectly from the surges in Oil and Natural Gas output; and new cost saving technologies from cell phones to robotic surgeries.

  • Market Consensus: Bullish At Last [View article]
    US treasuries are going down in price, because long term interest rates are rising. (The effect is simultaneous, so the two statements are equivalent). Bonds are lower today as well. HOWEVER, gold is who knows, I still might have to eat some crow on that issue. While many SA writers have pointed out gold is not necessarily an inflation indicator....maybe, maybe, now that the economic recovery is back on track, we'll start to see price pressures.

  • Market Consensus: Bullish At Last [View article]
    Is that anywhere near Calafia Beach? :) At the moment, oil prices are smack in the middle of a range they have occupied for several years. With fracking and horizontal drilling, I am sure we'll be able to handle any supply-induced price problems.

    On the OTHER hand, if the higher prices are from demand in our growing economy, I say...bring em on!

    "The last sentence I found particularly galling, as the share repurchase plan would be used to offset dilution which is simply unacceptable."

    Ha! Have a look at ISRG.
