Tale of the Tape
Good evening folks. Everyday there are more reasons why the market oughta fall outta bed, and everyday the market rips anyway. The Dow closed above 25,000 for the first time since March 10.
The information we have is imperfect and the future is unknown. Gotta be humble in the presence of stonks.
The S&P 500 closed up another 1.5% today, and once again we got the laggards leading. Financials, small caps, and value were all aces, while large cap tech trailed.
You can frame this as constructive as we get rotation out of the winners without the market tanking plus market breadth improves.
The COVID losers rallied hard with hotels, cruise liners and airlines all beating the market with ease.
Will this rotation continue? Place your bets…
Here’s a look at your major equity index performance:

Well folks, the verdict is in. No one is using Quibi lol. Here’s our favorite response to last night’s post.
I honestly tried it for two weeks. It was so hard to get into watching videos that are 8-10 minutes long. Imagine holding a phone above your head for like 6 minutes and then accidently dropping it on your face. (Yeah, that happened.) Oh and aspect ratios are crazy.
S/O Drew aka DMZ09 for the astute and honest review.
