Are you bullish or bearish on equities right now?

NYCTrader = bearish.

Feb 22, 2010 8:09 pm

As always I have no feelings on equities as a whole, but the most important part is the individual equities that you choose..

 
BULL on the equities I am buying..

Get in, get in, for god's sake, get in now. Go long and don't doubt me.

Massive correction will take place in the next 6 months. See Europe's debt problems. You will also see the Euro on par with the dollar by June 2011. UUP is a terrific buy here.

Basis? 

"in the next 6 months"?

Define "massive".

That's old news

If you believe that EUR/USD will reach parity, don't buy UUP.  Get leveraged.  By puts on FXE.

We'll see a move down in the S&P to under 900. The basis for this revelation can be found by looking no further than the UFB manipulation that has taken place in the markets since March 2009. Are you aware that OVER 85% of the first-trading days of the week since March 2009 have been "up" days? Statistically, that's nearly impossible unless you have the Fed manipulating the markets. I could go on.... and I will....

Consumer credit has declined for 11 straight months -- a record.
The market has been increasing over the past 11 months on LOWER volume -- turns out, that's a problem when you're looking for a legit rally.
Fed jacking up the markets with a flood of liquidity -- overheating the markets.
Ets, etc.....
 
BTW, it is kind of funny reading posts on this forum -- lot of jaded, angry taxpayers here! LOL I'm riding the wave baby -- asking all of my clients if they were happy with their FP's performance in 2008, and wondering why the FPs had them all long and strong falling asleep at the switch while their client's portfolio took a 50% dive. I'm coming on the scene at the right moment in time. I don't have that baggage!

NYC - newrep is a CPA who thinks he knows everything.  And he wants to be people's FA.  God help his clients, and him after he loses all of their money.

Okay, so you're basing your bearish call based on market manipulation.  Are you telling your clients this?  Also, if the markets are rigged to move positive how/why will they correct massively in the next 6 months?

Feb 22, 2010 10:02 pm

Massive corrections don't happen months after a stale headline. Tell us something we don't know. Tell me,  why do I give a s**t about Greece or Portugal?  I'm prepared to struggle on without a robust olive and cork market. You were freaking out about Iceland a year ago- what changed other than a few melted glaciers? 


Israel wacks Iran hard. There's your massive correction, and a great buying opportunity,  but don't hold your breath. They are way to smart to do it when you are expecting it.

I am now Bullish.

 
I was bearish for the last 3 or 4 months, since the Dow broke 10,000 (on the way up).......
With the market holding on and disregarding bad news, I have changed course and am now buying/Dollar cost averaging into the market......This change started a few Fridays ago when the Dow reversed late in the day from being down about 180 to finishing up about 20.
 
Basic Reasons:
If the market was going to go lower, it would have done it by now.
The reasons the bears point to have been out there for awhile.........
 
Earnings have come in better than expectations and guidance has been fine too.  When I look at some individual names, they look cheap to me.......
 
I think the main issue is growth over the next few years...........I prefer to be long in that environment, believing they will find a way......M&A, International opportunities, etc.....
Feb 22, 2010 10:32 pm

I had one douche CPA telling me what my clients should be buying in their portfolio. I guess when you know how to itemize it makes them expert in capital markets.

Feb 22, 2010 11:07 pm

Ron 14 - Bullish on bomb shelters.... I am digging one in my basement right now or at least until CNBC, the media, and all of the other bullsh*t artists tell me it is safe again.

Feb 23, 2010 12:39 am

I've been consistent from day one.



Prechtor too optimistic



Start nibbling at SPX 340   1990 lows



average down to my target buy point of spx 220

Based on his thoughts, its good that he has his clients in a 100% equity portfolio that he doesn't manage.
