Tale of the Tape
Good evening folks. Stocks were down fractionally today. Pretty benign given the robust nature of this rally.
It was the first red day this week for the S&P 500 which fell .34%. The Dow and Russell 2K were flat like crepes.
Financials were the strongest sector up 2%.
Rate sensitive Utilities and Real Estate were worst which makes sense given the sell-off in treasuries and the accompanying yield liftage.
So you know, the long bond is making 2 months lows here. More on this below.
Airline stocks were flying today and casinos were also strong so it was a rotation day back into the anti-COVID plays which have been mercilessly pummeled. More below.
Big cap tech closed weak with the Nasdaq 100 down .7% after ticking all time highs this morning.
Here are the closing prices on the major equity indices:
Slack got Worked.
Slack shares fell 15% after posting better than expected earnings. Here are the numbers:
EPS: ($0.02) vs ($0.06) est.
Revenue: $201.7M +49.6% YoY
First blush, looks like full year guidance was tepid, while this slide tells the brighter long term story…
Here’s CNBC with more on Slack.
Around 5ET Amazon announced it would license Slack for all its employees. 👀
DocuSign also reported earnings after the close. $DOCU beat estimates and shares were trading up 3.5% afterhours.
Here’s IBD with more.
Airlines Taking TF* Off
This morning, American Airlines announced that it will add more flights in July citing an uptick in demand. On the news, airline stocks took tf off. 🛫
Airline ETF, $JETS, was up 11.5% and the Airline Index was up 13%. You’d think these companies cured COVID. Check it:
American Airlines +41%
Delta Airlines +13%
JetBlue Airways +15%
Spirit Airlines +21%
United Airlines +16%
Although these names have been on an impressive run the last few days, let’s not forget they’re all still down at least 30% YTD.

Is the 40 Year Bond Bull Done?
Checking back in with our guy, and Kimble Charting Solutions founder, Chris Kimble –
As you might recall, Chris has been focusing on the possible end to the 40 year treasury bond bull market – one of the great bulls in history.
Here’s his most recent chart art focusing big pic on the 10-year yield inverted with monthly candlesticks. The May candle is confirming the bearish reversal as yields continue higher and bond prices continue lower.
The treasury bull has been such an epic trend that if it’s over, there are all types of ramifications such as the potential for higher commodity prices, higher mortgage rates, a weaker dollar etc.
