    Chart of the Day: Anything But Defensive
    Tue, Apr 23, 2019

    This morning, Lockheed-Martin (LMT) smashed earnings expectations, reporting $5.99 EPS for Q1 versus $4.34 expected. The beat was driven by sales of $14.3bn, exceeding analyst estimates of $12.6bn, and also came with a dramatic upgrade to guidance for all financial metrics this fiscal year. The triple play from LMT joined strong reports from Textron (TXT) and United Technologies (UTX). Together, these three companies are seeing combined revenues grow at a staggering 18.7% YoY, the fastest since defense spending's huge ramp up following the 9/11 attacks and the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Among other defense contractors, analysts are projecting revenue numbers for Q1 that would indicate a significantly lower revenue growth number, but if the results from LMT, TXT, and UTX are any indication, those forecasts are going to be handily beaten.

    Chart of the Day: May Seasonality + Sell in May
    Mon, Apr 29, 2019

    One of the best months of the year from a seasonal perspective (April) is quickly coming to an end, and now investors are set to enter a period of the year that usually produces sub-par returns relative to other periods. There is also a significant difference in performance during the month of May based on whether the stock market is up or down year-to-date through April.

    And what about the old saying "Sell in May and Go Away"? Is there any truth to it? Each year the "Sell in May" theory gets trotted out, but we have the data to prove whether investors really should hit the "Sell" button and then wait for six months until November rolls around.
