   Jim's Quotes from this segment:  

Jim:
          
Many stocks aren't going to make the quarter. That's what this topsy-turvy roller coaster of a market really told us underneath today, where the Dow closed down 25 points... But there the averages climbed mightily out of an early morning hole, mostly on rumors of a European compromise that will save the loser countries before they go down the drain. I'll believe it when I see it. You can't invest in rumors, people. Although European leaders did apparently agree to spend about $150 billion to stimulate growth. That's a tenth of what's needed, roundabout. Nice thought.

So let's talk about facts. For much of the year, stocks trade off of big trends. If you get a strong durable goods number, the big institutions... they have so much money to throw around, that they can pretty much set the price of stocks. They come in and they buy ETFs that are filled with industrials. In short, we take what's known as the macro, and we daily shoehorn the micro. Meaning we pick stocks to pick the big-picture thesis, and we buy them. As someone who used to trade for a living, I can tell you I made a pretty penny doing these shoehorn trades, anticipating these broad kinds of sector moves. But all good things... they must come to an end. And four times a year, this extrapolation game, making judgments that encompass individual stocks, as part of some broader themes, runs smack into something unassailable... the cold, hard facts about how these companies are really doing. We call it earnings season, my friends. But for me, it's the end of the news vacuum that allows us to buy or sell stocks on perception, and forces us to take into account the cold hard facts of reality.

And today we're being gripped with the end of that vacuum, because it's the end of the quarter, people.

The bottom line...

▼   ▼   ▼   ▼   ▼

The big, bad healthcare event is now behind us, gloriously. So we finally get some certainty, which is always positive. But now the focus will be on earnings, because it's the end of the vacuum, and there's a real chasm between the good and the bad earnings. Now you know the winners from the losers. Pick accordingly. And don't be afraid to trim in the groups that I expect to disappoint. Because no matter where they are, they can and will go lower, if they do let us down, as Research In Motion demonstrated once again... even though it was already down more than 70% over the last sorry year of that stock's existence.

Please note our anticipated schedule for posting these recaps:
Because we view each episode after it airs at 6pm Eastern time, we need time to compile the comments, code the pages
and post to the site, thereby, we're usually able to post each night's episode
prior to the market open (i.e., 9:30am) the following business day.     Thank you!   Thinking of a New Trademark?  Free trademark information site here >>
