- In the case of eight of the leveraged funds, the share prices have gotten too cheap and reverse splits are necessary: BRZU, YANG, GASL, MIDZ, LBJ, RUSS, SOXS, TECS. The first three ETFs are slated for 1:10 reverse splits, and the last five 1:4.
- For the other 11 leveraged funds, the share prices have gotten too pricey: MIDU, INDL, CURE, RETL, SOXL, FAS, TECL, SPUU, MDLL, SMLL, SYTL. All are 4:1 splits, except SYTL which is 2:1.
- All will begin trading on a post-split basis on May 20.

- Barely in the green for the year at the moment, the S&P 500 could slide 10% between now and October, says the technician, but there's a stealth bear market already happening in the Nasdaq, S&P Mid-Cap, and Russell 2000, and when support breaks (less than another 2%), those indices could see 20-25% declines.
- The situation reminds him of 1994 when the Dow and S&P were in a trading range all year, but things were falling apart underneath the surface.
- Following the washout into October, though, Acampora sees a "very, very strong Q4."

- "Frankly, from 2009 until recently, I wanted to stay very conservative," says a technology sales manager. "I want to get more aggressive."
- A Houston attorney and stock market skeptic was turned by her Schwab statement showing YTD gains of nearly 20%. She's planning on set aside more of her paycheck for stocks. "Sometimes you feel like it's too late. But it's probably never too late."

- Investors poured another $12.4B into global equity funds in the week ended Wednesday, with BAML's Michael Hartnett saying another $8B-$9B of inflows over the next two weeks would trigger a contrarian sell signal in his firm's flow-based model.
- This would coincide with BAML's Bull & Bear Index, which is getting a little to bullish for comfort. Fund manager cash levels were at 4.4% in October. A dip below 4% in November, says Hartnett, would trigger a bright red Sell alert.
