  • Is The Stock Market Crazy? No, Just Following Surging Profits, As Always

    For months now, many investors and Wall Street analysts have wondered how the major stock market indexes can keep climbing higher into record territory when the economy is growing at a slow 2% pace. But it's really no mystery: Profits, the fuel for rising stock prices, are growing. Make no mistake, earnings are strong right now. Quoting FactSet, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday that 73% of the S&P 500 companies that had reported earnings as of last week had posted results that exceeded forecasts for both revenues and earnings. Earnings for S&P 500 companies rose 15% in the first...

  • Wall Street edges higher to give Dow 11th straight record

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Wall Street edged higher on Friday, with the Dow extending its streak of record-setting gains to 11 days, as increases in utilities and other safety plays outweighed declines in financials. Major Wall Street indexes have rallied to record levels since the election of Donald Trump as U.S. president, boosted by pledges of tax reforms, reduced regulations and increased infrastructure spending. Equities were in negative territory for a majority of the trading session, however, as investors grew hesitant after recent comments from the Trump administration indicated its pro-growth policies may have a longer route to implementation. As...

    The momentum for U.S. stocks continued on Thursday, with stock futures pointing to fresh records at the open for all three major benchmarks ahead of a spate of earnings and economic reports, including jobless claims and home sales. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 46 points, or 0.2%, to 20,049, indicating a second straight day of opening above the psychologically important 20,000 handle. The benchmark DJIA, +0.78% on Wednesday reached the milestone for the first time ever, closing up 155.80 points to 20,068.51 over optimism over President Donald Trump’s policies and a solid round of corporate earnings.
  • The Dow just hit 20,000, but half of America missed out

    On Wednesday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average traded above 20,000 for the first time. This barrier, which is more important psychologically than it is for actual investment decisions, had been in the market’s sights for over a month after the post-election rally that followed Donald Trump’s election sent stocks to new records. Unfortunately, however, many Americans missed out. Back in April 2016, Gallup conducted its latest annual poll showing that just 52% of American adults owned stocks, via either individual issues, mutual funds, or self-directed 401(k) plans. This matched the lowest ownership level in Gallup’s 19-year tracking of this measure....

    The National Review ^ | 11/9/2016 | PAUL CROOKSTON
    Paul Krugman has already had to walk back his prediction of a global recession following Donald Trump’s presidential victory last night. His initial post on the New York Times’ website was confidently apocalyptic about the prospects of Donald Trump plunging the world into a depression: “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” He concluded by saying, “So we are very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight. I suppose we could get lucky somehow. But on economics, as on everything else, a terrible thing has just happened.” Markets rebounded in...

    Last night once it was clear Trump was going to win, they started whining about the Dow Jones futures being down by 500+ points. I checked a bit ago and it was up 81. Now it is up 145. Looks to me like it is skyrocketing thanks to Trump!

    HSBC's technical-analysis team has thrown up the ultimate warning signal. In a note to clients released Wednesday, Murray Gunn, the head of technical analysis for HSBC, said he had become on "RED ALERT" for an imminent sell-off in stocks given the price action over the past few weeks. Gunn uses a type of technical analysis called the Elliott Wave Principle, which tracks alternating patterns in the stock market to discern investors' behavior and possible next moves. In late September, Gunn said the stock market's moves looked eerily similar to those just before the 1987 stock market crash. Citi's Tom Fitzpatrick...

    Stocks slumped world-wide this week, with U.S. and European markets off more than 5% and the Shanghai Composite Index losing more than 11%. Oil prices also skidded, dropping more than 6%.
