    We wouldn't expect a full recovery before elections right? So, printer stays on through election?

    Eight Was Enough
    Wed, Jun 24, 2020

    After eight straight days of gains, the Nasdaq looks like it's ready for a breather today as the index is down over 1%. The current streak represented the longest string of back to back gains for the Nasdaq of 2020 and the longest streak since the 11-day streak that came to an end last December. Throughout the Nasdaq's history going back to 1971, there have been over 80 streaks of at least eight trading days, but since the tech boom really took off in the late 1990s, these streaks haven't been as frequent with just 26 now since 1995.

    Once a winning streak of eight or more days comes to an end, one would think that short-term returns going forward would be below average. However, looking back at how the Nasdaq performed following prior eight-day winning streaks, more often than not, the index has actually tended to have better than average short-term forward performance. In the week that followed these prior streaks, the Nasdaq averaged a gain of 0.55 (median: 0.35%) with positive returns 68% of the time. One month later, the average gain increased to 1.79% (median: 2.15%) with positive returns 84% of the time. Three months later, the effect of an eight-day winning streak probably didn't mean much, but even here the Nasdaq averaged a gain of 4.14% (median: 3.96%) with gains 72% of the time. What's notable about all of these performance numbers is that they are all better and more consistent to the upside than the Nasdaq's historical average one week, one month, and three-month returns. Today's performance is ending the Nasdaq's winning streak with a thud, but history shows that prior streaks have typically been part of longer periods of outperformance.

    One item worth noting about today's decline for the Nasdaq, though, is that with a decline of over 2%, the only other time where an eight-day winning streak ended with a decline of more than 2% was back in July 1986.

    Anyone been watching WKHS this week? This thing has been screaming, and today it's already traded the entire float which is about 62 mil. Pence is supposed to be at their new EV truck unveiling tomorrow.

    Got back in KGC at $6.67. Gold under pressure today due to the stronger dollar, but I still like it as long as the pandemic drags on :p

    Trump will keep the printer going until elections purely for the “market is at ATH because of me” type campaign comments.

    SPOT reacted terrifically to announcements of podcasts.
    They pay such large royalties for streaming songs, so the more people listen to podcasts, the better their margins will be. Sure they paid millions for the podcasts, but all that cost is up front.

    Market in a balancing day today, we're pretty much flat after yesterday's big move downward that got us out of the week-long range.

    Playing APT a little bit at $18.57 :p Those coronavirus drug plays are getting too big with their market caps, this one is still small enough and is a face mask play instead :p

    Thoughts on bank stocks? With all these restrictions being lifted that were put in place because of 2008, bank stocks look juicy to buy here.
