JUNE 20, 2018. The stress filled the air and airwaves on Tuesday. Our major indexes all headed straight toward the floor from the open. Of course–trade fear. Market darlings were beaten mercilessly–like Boeing. We left on Monday at $353. We think BA’s headed further down and we have the chart to demonstrate.
But yesterday brought almost everything down, except Amazon. AMZN went up right in the downturn’s face. It will again. Did you find any gems in the wreckage? We did. And here they are.
JUNE 18, 2018. Boeing’s future is being determined today. History does not always repeat itself.
But what if it does?
BA has a history. What does recent history tell us? Probing this stellar company’s footprints–black letter law for technicians. We dig deeper into BA’s decline. STOCKjAW reads the historical record, before it’s too late.
JUNE 17, 2018. We should have trusted our instincts. Yet the line between obvious buys and mindless chasing can be faint. It’s Boeing for god’s sake. What could go wrong? Tariffs–yes. Let’s see–a steady industrial goes stratospheric–with dazzling charts to support it still. Who wouldn’t want a piece of that? Ah, stoic fundamentalists.
Despite its’ soaring technical strength, Boeing’s price action is wingtipped earthward. That’s when we chased. It’s a wingdip. Right–a dip, but no wing yet. Isn’t there an award for blind driving and other dumbass activities? But is it chasing?
Now STOCKjAW probes the quite pedestrian price action of a stock accustomed to more rarefied air. Up or down, are you firmly buckled-in, or ready to deplane? On board for our in-flight safety check. This could just help you survive. We’re hoping so.
JUNE 14, 2018. The virtual hook-up is our future, and that definitely means virtual medicine. Relentless and savage medical pricing is draining American’s prosperity, while leaving many stranded in an unserved wilderness. Inefficiencies in the industry soak up tens of billions annually. The mind-bending cost ramp of care looms very darkly over all balance sheets from Washington to Main Street, and more so in every home.
Has the digital revolution finally reached the doctor’s office? Yes, if TELADOC has it’s way. Doctor up digitally. Soon perhaps, far fewer patients will idle for hours repeating the exact same paperwork. We hope so.
JUNE 12, 2018. The defense contractors have enjoyed a very nice run. The past 13 months have been glorious. We’re not including the market-wide plunge on February 19th. But there it is and it carried LMT down like a SAM. “But Lockheed is a pure play on defense, a quality company, with tons of cash and a bullet-proof balance sheet, and a nice dividend.” For many jobs LMT is the only choice.
Yet great companies in terrific fundamental shape, can sport completely broken charts. That’s Lockheed now. Exactly how expensive, or cheap, is Lockheed? Is it more expensive than Northrop, or Raytheon? Who’s growing earnings the fastest? Is it time to go? STOCKjAW ran the numbers ourselves. Find the facts here. Now our two-fisted take on pure defense–both fundamental and technical. You decide. We did, and we may be wrong.
JUNE 9, 2018. Anthony Bourdain’s insight, intelligence, and humanity will become an empty spot, untouchable by others. His Spirit and life remain an inspiration. This one hurts.Read more
JUNE 8, 2018. You have friends and family. They have friends…and everyone’s spending money and people talk and eventually business, friends, and family collide. Confusion.
Keeping family ties clear and sweet is hard enough, without injecting business. So why do it? Family. In-laws. Good intentions. Is it wise? Is it “good business?” Once started is it unstoppable? Family. Money. Reality.
