Last week I wrote a post detailing just how earnings season was going so far. It got basically no views, but I promised to update the progress again this week and I'm a man of my word so here is where earnings season stands as of today. According to Factset (link below) "Overall, 50% of the companies in the S&P 500 have reported actual results for Q4 2022 to date. Of these companies, 70% have rSee more
The M2, a measure of money supply that tracks checking accounts, saving accounts, money market accounts and short-term certificates of deposit as well as other liquid deposits has turned negative on a year-over-year basis for the first time since at least 1960, according to Fed data, tumbling $1.35 trillion from the peak in March to $12.4 trillion in December, a drop of 9.8%. In other words, theSee more
You're going to be hearing these two words a LOT over the next 5-7 months: Debt Ceiling. I'm sure a million people with agendas will be more than happy to tell you why they think defaulting is a fantastic idea. I spent a lot of time last year trying to explain why the debt ceiling needed to be raised and what the consequences would be if we didn't raise it and basically all I got in the comments wSee more

In doing some research for another post I'm working on I stumbled onto a bit of information that I thought I'd share. Hopefully @leif @jannick @victor @emmaz can give this post a boost because it's literally insane that this is currently happening. What if you could make a guaranteed 4.32% return on your investment in just one month? We're talking 100% risk free return. This might sound like some crSee more
Since joining Public in early 2020 I've had a tradition of giving out insights at the end of each year regarding the trends I expect to be the strongest over the coming year. Last year I talked about how tech stocks were in for a rough year this year due to the likelihood of a strong Fed rate hiking cycle and an end to their 13+ year policy of Quantitative Easing. I settled on a few potential waysSee more
I've only been back here posting for a little over a week but already I've started to see some of the same things happening that made things miserable the last time. So let's address it here and maybe it'll happen slightly less (knowing some people it might actually happen more ..). When people are posting about companies, CEOs, financial assets, or anything directly relating to the stock or crypSee more

Tomorrow has the potential to be an extremely volatile day. There are over $4 trillion in options set to expire tomorrow in one of the busiest options expiration dates this year. Tomorrow is the last monthly options expiration date of the year and happens to fall into what's called a "quadruple witching" day. Quadruple witching refers to the simultaneous expiration of stock index futures, stock inSee more

I frequently tell everyone that you should not care which direction the market goes because you can make money if it goes up or if it goes down. You should only care that it's got a consistent direction. Because any time you get a consistent direction driven by a meaningful event, like economic data or the Fed or some governmental policy, THAT'S when you can really stack up gains. If stuff is juSee more
I had a question on my last post and thought the answer might be helpful to others. The question was basically why I thought stock prices were going to continue to fall next year. To answer that you need to consider the reasons that stock prices go up (for the most part) and what the Fed has been doing this year. So the Fed has been hiking rates right? Why? The purpose of rate hikes is to lSee more
People have been railing on and on about interest rate hikes. Sure those are important. That's not what the market is reacting to though. Members of the discord can tell you I've been focusing on one specific aspect of the Fed policy shift. Balance sheet reduction. See... The Fed has a balance sheet of assets totaling nearly $9 trillion. These assets were acquired mainly in response to the COVID lSee more
