Short the vacation industry.


Ninety-nine percent of everything you(Trump) say is either false, crazy, incoherent, just plain cruel, or a rancid paella of all four.

ETFs probably work for it. You buy it as a long investment, but the fund's positions are shorting the industry.

We apparently closed today in an official bear market. Day one bear is no time to buy long positions. Statistically.

You can't go long on transportation stocks (i.e. GM), oil, hospitality or energy even though they are really good buys right now.If the Dems get in, and implement their idiotic programs, these w/b terrible investments.Maybe Solyndra? Burisma mite be good too because Hunter won't let that energy company tank.

Joe Biden has spent his entire life trying to succeed in presidential politics,and now he has. Too bad he’s not there to enjoy it.

There's a really cool business/site called Motif Investing. Their motiffs are funds they've invented as investment vehicles. I had several of them. Pets. Aging population. Block chain technology. Forgot what else. I recommend them highly.

I should think staples like grocery companies might be good places for some money now.

How much longer will it continue to fall? Ofcourse if we knew that we would all be rich but what's the best guess?

If you can isolate toilet paper at Sam's Club, you've got a winner. Kleenex was close to wiped out too.

You can take a good guess using Fibonacci's sequence. It's fascinating stuff. You can look it up. Basically, markets and a lot of other things, retrace in predictable patterns/amounts. It's percentage stuff. Some of the technical analysis wizards on the financial sites should have blogged about it in relation to this market.

They'd have to go back to the Spanish Flu to gauge this one.

Futures just crashed the most they're allowed to. The money is talking.

Thanks for the vote of confidence on my market calls. Usually a 50-50 proposition, but last week was pretty easy to read. I don't know why they panicked today after the big bounce Friday. Maybe the Fed Governors are short the market too.

I have a super healthy pension fund, but I'm thinking no raise this summer. Oil crashing probably drives down inflation rates, which is what we're based on. They could even drop it. Sobering thought.

Stack market props my State of Md. pension fund which was going great before, and a lot of others as well.

Superb article about the state of stocks, from Investors Business Daily. They are pretty close to the gold standard for investors. The VIX is at an all time high, which historically means When the Vix is high, you must buy! Our virus is probably going to crash the economy even further, but it still gives one a starting place. Energy stocks from some big assed companies you've heard of, are literally penny stocks right now. Noble and RIG among them. Read this

No change in outlook. It sucks. Speculators seem to be betting there'll come a bounce with the stimulus. I think, me only, stimulus will try to maintain the status quo. Fundamentals could be years away from supporting actual market growth. It was, as they say, priced for perfection. Uncharted territory, this terrorist disease. It's an ugly bastard. Perfectly healthy people croak in days in some of the worst cases. Imperfectly healthy people are at serious, serious risk. They are right to shut everything down. It's like chemotherapy on the population.

Dude on the radio this morning said that he had talked to wall street insiders and that they are excited because they believe that after this is over the market will skyrocket quickly. He also said that almost no one thinks that Biden has a chance in November and that another 4 years of trump will be great for them... He said a lot of young investors were gonna become millionaires overnight....

This is a nice looking list I just saw. McDonalds might actually show sales growth for the year, and it's down 30%. The ServiceNow company seems to be in a sweet spot too, business-wise.Marketwatch.

What do you guys think about tesla stock? I say nope but some of my buddies are buying it.......Don't buy any casket company stocks..... second largest company here in ga should be selling 40-45 per day this time of year.... averaged 15 a day in march... we should be selling 12-15 per day now.... averaging about 7-8 per day and that's only because we were busy the first part of the month....Everybody is either cremating or buying the cheapest thing that they can get and the largest company lowered their cheap unit so low that no one can sell for that. Ofcourse they are losing big money selling for that low price but they have millions to lose.... funeral homes here are required to stock atleast 8 units at all times but state inspectors are off of the road so no one is keeping their stock up to 8.

I have no real opinion of this dude, or his thesis. It seems topical, so I share it. Bear market.

About 70% of my retirement funds are tied to interest rates, and they have sunk even further. Chicken funds you might call them.The pres. wants zero interest rates,
damn him.
