  1. TSP Talk: The bears are still hibernating

    Stocks were mixed on Thursday with Dow slipping 12-points and the small caps taking a rare hit, while the S&P 500 was flat, and the Nasdaq was up sharply. The bears seem to be lurking, and waiting for the occasional scrap to be thrown their way, as in the case of small caps yesterday, but for the most part the bulls have remained fully in charge.

  3. TSP Talk: Valuations vs. stimulus

    Stocks rallied again yesterday with the Dow rallying 260-points and the Nasdaq leading the way with a gain of nearly 2%. Small caps lagged a bit but still had another solid day. Bonds were flat, as was the dollar. The bulls are loving it but the question I keep asking is how many times can the market rally on the stimulus?

  5. TSP Talk: Is it time to sell the news?

    Modest gains for the Dow, and solid gains elsewhere on Tuesday after last week's pre-holiday selling. The Dow added 116-points and once again it was the small caps and particularly the Nasdaq taking the lead on the upside. After the bell we got the first FAANG stock to report earnings and the stock was flying. Bonds rallied and the dollar dipped again.
