This HouseGood morning.
Traders are once again starting to bet on oil rising to $100 in the coming months, thanks to a recent output cut by OPEC members totaling over 1.1 million barrels per day.  Higher oil prices will likely act as a form of inflation… but there’s another reason to expect prices to stay higher for longer.
That’s because rain-soaked California is now starting to miss out on key planting season in the state’s lush farmland.  Adding in flooding in the Midwest, and it’s likely that there will be a reduced crop season this year… which will likely keep supply low and prices high.
With food and energy prices likely to remain strong, higher inflation seems likely in the months ahead.  As does the possibility of a slowdown in other parts of the economy as consumers pay more prices at the grocery store and gas pump.  Traders should continue to expect inflation to run hot and stocks to trade weak overall… although a few well trade higher from these rising prices.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

U.S. Government Struggles To Delay Default
The government can manipulate the gross national debt to keep it below the debt ceiling while issuing new debt.  But not for long.  Then the game is over.  The funny part is how close the government’s checkbook balance will go to… [Read Here]

The Banking Crisis Just Got Worse
If our banking system can’t find a way to turn things around, our entire economy will soon be in a world of hurt.  When banks get into trouble, they start getting really tight with their money.  That means fewer mortgages, fewer commercial real estate loans, fewer… [Read Here]

Literature April '22Good morning.
For every buyer on the market, there’s a seller.  And for every seller… there’s a buyer.  That fundamental truth can get lost amid the shuffle of a bull market.  Knowing who’s buying and who’s selling can give traders an idea of where the market is trending.
Over the past several months, institutional investors like hedge funds have been sellers on each rally higher.  However, retail investors have remained active, and with the second quarter of the year now underway, funds rotating may end up having to chase a number of winning stocks.  In short, markets should continue to be volatile.  Traders will likely see their biggest returns in individual stocks that might not make logical sense to rally… until you look at who’s buying and who’s selling.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Corporate LadderGood morning.
Investing occurs on two levels.  The first level includes the fundamentals, like how much a company is earning, how it expects to grow, and so on.  The second level?  It’s about what the market thinks about the stock, and if the market is right or wrong.
Some of the biggest profits can be made looking for the market to be wrong, cashing out of an uptrend ahead of its end.  The first quarter of the year saw a lot of reversal, particularly in high-growth names.  For the second quarter, value stocks are likely to do a little better as investors feel burned on growth.  But look for an opportunity to buy back into growth, as any push into value may create some bargains there in the quarter ahead.

Now here’s the rest of the news:
