(and what to do about them)

 

1) U.S. Q2 GDP Growth Revises Up, from 4.1% to 4.2%. Yes, this is what peaks look like. Expect a slowdown when the first Q3 data comes out in two months, right after the midterm elections. Yikes! Click here.
 
2) Trump Attacks Big Tech Again, but the stock market isn’t buying it, with all of big tech up today. The Supreme Court has already ruled that corporations have First Amendment rights. Click here.

3) July Pending Home Sales Down -0.7%, and off 2.3% YOY. Yes, you can drive a stake through the heart of residential real estate. Don’t even think about buying that second home! Click here.

4) U.S. Job Satisfaction Hits a 13-Year High. I’m certainly working overtime without pay, how about you? Maybe that’s why inflation has failed to show. Cover those bond shorts! Click here.

5) California Plans a Carbon-Free Economy by 2045. It’s now the law. We’re already there on some days. The rest of the world will follow. The future is in alternative energy plays. Click here.

1) Markets Hit New All-Time High. The market action is broadening. The year-end melt-up has begun. Buy dips in everything, keeping in mind that the Mad Hedge Profit Predictor is entering scary “SELL” territory! Click here.
 
2) U.S. Consumer Confidence Hits an 18-Year High. It’s always like this at the top. Max out that credit card! Click here.

3) Trump Tries for a Trade Trifecta, with a deadline for a Canadian deal this Friday. I give it a 25% chance, so look for a buyable dip in the markets after that. Click here.

4) The U.S. Trade Deficit Soars. It turns out that beating up your trade partners doesn’t encourage them to buy more of your exports, especially since new tariffs and a strong dollar are making them much more expensive. Click here.

5) Trumps Attacks Google, claiming the company suppresses positive news stories about him. The stock (GOOG) barely moves. Don’t piss off Silicon Valley or strange things will start to happen. The Valley also accounts for 50% of all U.S. profits and generated most of the stock market gains since Trump’s election, so be careful who you abuse. Click here.

1) U.S. and Mexico Reach a Bilateral NAFTA Deal. Yes, we’re leaving Canada out in the cold. I never trusted them anyway since they can’t say “about” correctly. Guacamole is back! At least the stock market thinks so; it’s up 270 points. Click here.

2) The Aramco Deal is Off. Saudi Arabia will not take its oil (USO) monopoly public. Maybe oil isn’t going to crash after all. Click here.

3) So is the Tesla Privatization Offer. The $420 bid is off the table. Maybe the Saudis didn’t have the cash after the Aramco deal was canceled. But the shares hold $320. Buy the car, not the stock. Click here.

4) Stocks Hit New All-Time Highs. Is this the outbreak of trade peace I have been warning about? Stocks could melt up to the end of the year. Click here.

5) Chinese Yuan Hits a Four-Week High, as trade peace breaks out, even though it is on the other side of the world. Click here.

5) Don’t Plan That Hawaii Getaway this Weekend. Some 40 inches of rain have already fallen on the Big Island. I called all my Hawaiian subscribers before the lines went down as a precaution. Click here.

1) Jobless Claims Hit New Lows at 210,000, down 2,000, a new all-time low. The U.S. is running out of workers, and companies are struggling to find minimum-wage staff. Inflation has to be right around the corner. Click here.

 2) China Files a Complaint Against the U.S. in the World Trade Organization. Most American’s don’t know this, but all the new U.S. tariffs are illegal under WTO rules and will be thrown out. The outcome of the trade war will be decided in Geneva. Click here.

3) Honeywell (HON) Raises Guidance. The aircraft and defense business are booming. Buy Boeing (BA) on the dip. Click here.

4) The World is Totally Confused About the Mess in Washington. My advice? Things will take much longer to play out than anyone expects. Remember, our government was set up 236 years ago when all communication was by horse and rider. Click here.

5) New Home Sales Fall to Nine-Month Low, with July sales down 1.7% to 627,000 units. Yes, it may already be too late to sell your home. Click here.

(and what to do about them)

 


1) Stock Market Hits New All-Time Highs. I told you so. It only took seven months from the last peak. Some 40% of this year’s 7% gain is in four stocks: Netflix (NFLX), Amazon (AMZN), Apple (AAPL), and Alphabet (GOOGL). Click here.

2) About That Washington Matter. Stocks could care less. Excess global liquidity, exploding earnings, a strong economy, and low interest rates are much more important. Only an extended trade war can pee on this parade. Click here.

3) Lowes is Shutting Down Orchard Hardware Stores. Retail over-capacity is still a huge problem. You are going to have to drive a little further to buy those flowers this weekend. Click here.

4) JP Morgan (JPM) is Laying Off 100 Portfolio Managers. Yes, they’re being replaced by algorithms. Your next financial advisor could be a terminator. Click here.

5) Target (TGT) Reports Blowout Earnings. Apparently, retail is not deal after all. The world is dividing into the have and the have-nots. Click here.

Mad Hedge Hot Tips - August 9, 2018

1) U.S. Weekly Jobless Claims Plunge to 213,000. A full employment economy is now what bear markets are made of, so keep buying those deep.

2) The Tech Correction is Over. If you blinked, you missed it. Amazon is about to become the next trillion-dollar company and will become the first 2 trillion-dollar company.

3) China is Blocking Car Imports from the U.S. Even those made by foreign companies. That Means Ford (F) and General Motors (GM) will continue to go down the toilet.

4) The Latest Inflation Report Came in at Zero. So, bonds will continue to remain trapped in narrow ranges and interest rate plays like REITs and MLPs will keep rallying.

5) Is Elon Musk Headed to Jail? I doubt it, but the SEC wants to know how solid the financing behind the $420 buyout offer really is.
