- The End Is Near Wall Street began the day with a friendly voice, a companion unobtrusive … well, at least as unobtrusive as any companion can be right now. The ADP private payroll figures arrived today, and there’s really only one way to describe them: “obviously an awful number, but not as catastrophic as expected.” […]

Wall Street thinks that stocks, like Sneetches, are all the same right now. But what happens when the unlimited stimulus rug is pulled out from under you? S&P Sneetches Say Stocks Shift the Same

- Star-Belly Sneetches Today, we’re taking a trip back to childhood to discuss a famous Dr. Seuss story: The Sneetches. (Actually, we’re talking about the correlation of S&P 500 stocks … but you’ll see where I’m going with this shortly.) You see, Star-Belly Sneetches have stars on their bellies and Plain-Belly Sneetches have none. Then Sylvester […]
This certainly doesn’t look like a “12% away from all-time highs” market or economy to me. Does it to you? Dow 25,000? Get Real; Robinhood’s Most Wanted … Is Carnival?

- Enema of the State I’m in a mood today, dear reader, so let this be a warning that a rant is incoming. First, let’s start out with today’s astonishing development that sparked this Great Stuff mood. The Dow Jones Industrial Average topped 25,000 today — the culmination of a 35% rush off its March lows. […]

Wall Street is most certainly faking it right now. And that, dear reader, is why Great Stuff remains pert’near bearish on the entire shebang. Fake Markets, Shopify Targets and Tesla’s “Karen” Musk
May 22, 2020 Great Stuff
- Friday Four Play: The “Fake It Until You Make It” Edition It’s been a really really messed up week. Five days of bad data, five days of going nowhere. And the market went and cheated on me. It’s in the Fed’s back pocket and it doesn’t even matter. (La, la, la … whatever. La, la, […]
There was a crack in Wall Street’s armor today, but it wasn’t jobless claims that made investors blink … it was China. Senate Wise Guys Draw China Eyes
May 21, 2020 Great Stuff
- The New Red Scare Here we are… Another Thursday, another weekly initial jobless claims report … and another stock market rally? Some 2.4 million Americans filed for first-time unemployment claims last week. The nine-week total of continuing claims now stands at nearly 39 million. Despite Main Street’s pain, Wall Street’s song remains the same. The […]
