Reason to Be Concerned About the Market

Posted by Larry Doyle on July 6th, 2011 8:12 AM |

It is a well known fact that an increasing percentage of daily trading volume in the equity markets is driven by high frequency traders. Whether you think that is a good or bad development is currently irrelevant. It is a reality.

That reality has clearly changed the nature of investing and assessing the markets.

How does one invest with a long term horizon when so much of the market is driven by short term traders? Very carefully.

Long term investing requires a solid understanding of fundamental analysis. In the midst of that endeavor, though, investors might want to have an appreciation for technical analysis, which can be utilized across an array of time segments but is very often applied for shorter time periods. (more…)

Navigating Sense on Cents

Posted by Larry Doyle on April 11th, 2009 7:29 AM |

As many people travel this weekend to be with friends and family, I would like to take an opportunity to navigate the highways and byways of links and material connected to Sense on Cents.

I hope this post will open more eyes and ears to wider avenues of information as we collectively try to make sense of the economy, markets, and world of global finance.

Roubini and Birinyi on the Market

Posted by Larry Doyle on March 26th, 2009 8:42 AM |

I always keep a close ear for the market insights of any of our Economic All-Stars. Highly proclaimed NYU professor and economist Nouriel Roubini is decidedly bearish on the state of financial companies, the economy, and the markets. Bloomberg reports, Roubini Says Stocks Will Drop as Banks Go Belly Up.

Laszlo Birinyi is more tempered in his assessment but believes the market has come too far, too fast and is subject to some pullbacks. Please remember that we saw a market bottom in the S&P 500 at the 666 level (pretty scary, eh) on Friday March 6. We have moved up 22% in a very short time frame. Birinyi further offers that this market is less geared for long term investors and more for short term traders focused on picking individual stocks.

Is The Market Oversold?

Posted by Larry Doyle on February 25th, 2009 2:40 PM |

The valuation of any asset is determined by three factors:

1. Fundamentals: measures items such as cash flow analysis, cost-benefit analysis, earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation (EBITDA)

2. Technicals: measured by regression of price movements to determine overbought and oversold conditions

3. Psychology: measured by unscientific surveys of market participants

I have never seen such divergent views on expected future earnings which directly impacts any reasonable fundamental analysis. (more…)
