August Correction Reveals Market’s Favorite Stocks

August 19, 2019

One thing I relish when the market undergoes a nasty correction, as it has in the past two weeks, is that after every stock has been washed, rinsed and gone through the spin cycle, we get a clear idea of which stocks are the best to own going forward. In a sell-first, ask-questions-later market landscape […]

Trading the New Bull Market in Gold

August 12, 2019

The stock market has entered no man’s land this past week, with the S&P breaking its intermediate-term uptrend line and yet finding key support at 2,800 where its 200-day moving average sits. The mid-week snapback rally took the S&P back up to its 50-day moving average that was met with selling pressure Friday, going into […]

Time to Sell Covered Calls on Rallies

August 5, 2019

The summer of love for the stock market has been well-oiled by the assumption of a locked-and-loaded rate cut by the Fed and generally better-than-expected second-quarter earnings. As of Friday, 59% of companies in the S&P 500 reported actual Q2 results with 77% of companies announcing a positive earnings per share (EPS) surprise, while 61% […]

Energy Infrastructure Is Making a Sudden Move 

July 29, 2019

It’s no secret that for the past five years, investing in energy MLPs has been a losing proposition aside from collecting dividends while watching principal erosion. The energy boom in the U.S. has involved the building out of massive networks of pipelines, storage facilities, transfer stations and processing facilities, and yet the sector has sorely […]

Bullish U.S. Fund Flows as Foreign Central Banks Are Running on Empty

July 22, 2019

The S&P 500 is trading at a new all-time high as earnings season is taking on the tone of a “glass half full” after the first full week of Q2 results. This is too bad for investment houses like Morgan Stanley, which have turned bearish on stocks and have thus taken their global equity rating […]

Major Averages Hit New Highs on Fed-Induced Hopium

July 15, 2019

Last week’s rally that led the Dow, S&P and Nasdaq to new all-time highs truly defied the logic and warnings coming from many market pros. The trade truce with China is anything but reassuring, tensions with Iran are simmering, an abnormally high number of companies are issuing revenue and profit warnings and Morgan Stanley came […]

A New Bull Market for Gold Looks Technically Legit

July 8, 2019

A lot of attention has been given to the big spike in gold prices this year that has coincided with huge rallies in the bond and equity markets. Typically and historically, these three markets don’t exhibit that kind of correlation. In fact, it is thought that gold prices advance when the rate of inflation rises, […]

Collecting Covered-Call Income from the Clouds

July 1, 2019

As the second quarter comes to a close and the market is at the midway point of the year, a view of what is working best for generating call option income shows a few sectors outpacing the rest of the market by a wide margin. Roughly half the stocks in the S&P 500 are trading […]

Health Care REITs Offer Income for Dividend-Starved Investors

June 24, 2019

There are very few issues that Democrats, Republicans, Independents and Libertarians agree on these days, and of the most divisive is the role of health care in America and what form or forms it should take. Government-run versus privately operated or some combination of both has all sides waging a war of rhetoric to shape […]

Getting Four Times the 10-year Treasury Yield from Convertibles

June 17, 2019

To close out the second quarter of 2019, I want to examine the convertible securities sector for a couple of reasons. First, the fact that market conditions now favor this asset class means that convertible securities deserve our attention. Second, interest rates are trending lower since stocks are trading higher. These two catalysts are not […]
