Interesting, Semis and software went in opposite directions today. Semis are just being used as poker chips, so to speak. Tulip bulbs even. Very fishy. Fish and chips.

Guess they should have given the investment banking business to Davenport, huh?

=============================
Investors were unrelenting to CarMax (KMX: news, chart, profile), taking shares down by more than 6 percent after the auto-retailing company raised its outlook for second-quarter earnings to 36 cents a share, up from a previous projected range of 33 cents to 35 cents.

Before the bell, CarMax said sales surged 14 percent rise in the second quarter ended Aug. 31, reaching $1.24 billion. Same-store sales rose 6 percent for the quarter.

But, the company admitted that new store openings cut into sales at existing stores. A Davenport anal cyst downgraded the stock to "neutral" from "buy," citing valuation issues. The stock is reaching the high end of Davenport's $32-$38 target range. The firm noted that the estimate is CarMax's highest forward valuation since it became profitable in the 2001.

CarMax's shares lost $2.29 to rest at $35.45.

Vesselin should be back from vacation?!

Would be interested to get his take.

I think I heard yesterday - that now we have broken out of the trading range - Desmond sees more upside.

But then again in a Tom Calandra article dated July 2002
Desmond was saying the absence of 90-90 down days meant a "wash out" hadn't occured - and thus no BOTTOM.

I don't know if he eventually nailed the October bottom - but I doubt it.

Maybe Desmond is waiting for 90-90 up days to mark the top?

So many pundits so many wrong calls.

"Today was one small step for bear. Will Monday be one giant leap for bear kind?"



Actually Neil Armstrong blew that line.

Man and mankind (or Bear and Bearkind) are the same.

He should have said: one small step for a man.

Desmond, Schaeffer, Bullinger, and all the rest are simply Hapless Forecasters.

Nobody has any idea where the market is going.

Best strategy is to simply follow AMAT, a Simpleton approach.

Dryhump the market if AMAT goes up.

Pull out and close the zipper if AMAT goes down.

Or follow Pile's strategy and dong the SectorCrest Screamers, just make sure to jump off before they turn.

Crooks and theives everywhere.

T/A is for entertainment purposes only. No different than listening to the shills on ESPN with their football predictions. Nobody knows who the winners are.

Fun to offer predictions and try to game the turns, but its mainly for the intellectual rush. Wouldn't trade based on it.

ESPN bookmaking is pure gambling.

At least in Stock Riverboating, you can follow the Wildebeast herd for some scalps here and there, and ignore all the pundits, psychics, and soothsayers.

That's why we are here.

At least we have a chance of making some coin by simple herd chasing.

Considering his location and situation at the time he uttered that line
most of humanity was/is willing to cut Armstrong some slack regarding his grammatical faux pas.

Bart, actually there's a post over on CB about the COT that sez the opposite...
"The sphinx set riddles for people which they could not solve and the sphinx devoured them." Russian poet Ilia Ehrenberg reflecting years later upon the debacle of the Bolshevik Revolution and civil war

"In any case, experience shows people are unlikely to change their ways without a cataclysm of existential proportions" Meinhard Meigel, German economist and demography expert on his prophecy of a Wagnerian abyss of social and economic chaos

"We believe that here is no easy way out of this mess, and that the chance of a benign outcome, while hopefully possible, is quite low." Comstock Partners 3-17-2005

"Not without a shudder may the human hand reach into the mysterious urn of destiny." Junk email promoting the sale of Valium, Viagra, Soma and Cialis. Of course, we AMERICANS need not WORRY about such CLAPTRAP!!!

"What should be clear at this point is that even huge fiscal stimulus and unprecedented financial excess are incapable of fostering a sound and self-sustaining economic expansion.

We're still in the trading range, HRFF will wager, gentlemen.

This week was a FALSE alarm. It came up to the REAL resistance, then RETREATED.

Betcha 1000 acts like a magnet in BOTH directions sans dramatic news one way or da UDDER. And the likelihood of dramatic news/surprises to the UPside diminishes with each pASS(_)_)ing day.

anyone else around here thinking a steep plunge at any time in the near future a diSTINKed possibility?

hmmmmMMMMM?

sure doesn't seem like, with one or two exceptions, perhaps.

Schaefer? HRFF followed him FUR a while and decided he was all over the map. Last time he read anything by Bernie it wuz a month or two ago and he was, at that point, if HRFF recalls correctly, warning a breakout could be 'false'.

It must be a burden to be a public figure on Wall St. Seems NONE of 'em dare get TOO bearish, save Richard Russell who says what he thinks all the time. Most all the others, including a well known Seattle bear, seem to periodically to go out of the way to curry favor w the buy side.

Wall St IS, after all, about raising capital, ain't it?

Well?

Ain't it? :o :D :lol:
