Earnings AMZN and GOOG

Posted on: by .

Has the market found a support level? We have become accustom to the Fed riding in to the rescue and injecting 100′s of billions in the system, yet Bernanke seemed to ignored the market, currency crisis, earnings, and even lack luster economic data. Of course, I am of the ilk that believes Bernanke is trying Read more…

Earnings and Economic Data

Posted on: by .

Yesterday started off under pressure and the Fed’s decision to continue to taper didn’t help matters, as a result we saw the market close weaker. It was Bernanke’s last meeting and he held the course, against the criticisms of the Keynesians of the like of Krugman and others. During this time the new Fed Chair, Read more…

Fed Decision ?

Posted on: by .

The market looks to be holding at these support levels, but with some precarious topics on the near-term horizon it’s unknown whether we will bounce or continue to fall. Earnings, Fed policy, emerging markets and European debt, US debt, and economic stagnation are all here and we just can’t ignore them. There are some great Read more…

Apple Earnings

The market was mixed yesterday, there was some good earnings, more concern about the global currency issue, and uncertainty as the Fed meeting began. Apple’s earnings were after the close and can certainly set the tone for the day, however the Fed meeting is bringing forth more speculation about the taper and if the Fed Read more…

Earnings CAT and pending Apple!

Much of the weekend was focused on whether or not any nation would try to quickly announce a devaluation on Sunday, much like in the beginning of the “Asian Flu” in 1997. This is done to help reduce the inflationary pressure and stop outflows of capital. While there was talk and speculation that we could Read more…

The market came under significant pressure yesterday and we saw gold prices rally. It wasn’t the usual reaction to earnings or even general market news. A few inquired asking whether there was something more to be considered? There certainly is! In the global financial news there has been a currency war brewing in which we Read more…

Earnings MCD and NFLX

Earnings continue to reflect a mixed picture. We continue to see that investors need to be more selective in their investments and that we may face a 2014 in which not all stocks and markets rise. We have already seen forward difficulty in the financial sector and the news yesterday about Sears, Target and a Read more…

Earnings UTX and IBM

The market initially had a strong run on some rather solid earnings yesterday, so why did the early market rally fail? I think beyond the scope of current earnings there remain concerns about the Fed’s position and the possible taper. Additionally, there is general concern about the ability for the equity markets to continue their double digit Read more…

Earnings VZ, JNJ, DAL

As the market is unable to reach escape velocity after an initial batch of mixed earnings and a confusing Labor Report, we continue to hold in a range, hoping and anticipating that as more earnings are released the results reflect of more robust recovery. This morning a few more big names may drive the earnings Read more…

Earnings GE and INTC

Posted on: by .

The market is struggling to break-out above the resistance level. We made a run and then just fell off. The big financial earnings have shown some concern about the housing market from last quarter and there is also concerns going forward, predominantly how the Volcker rule will impact top line revenue after April 1st. The Read more…
