What I am looking at Dec. 13, 2021:

  • Goldman's equity strategist Kostin notes AAPL, MSFT, NVDA, TSLA, GOOGL account for 51% of the returns since April... historically periods of sharply declining market breadth are followed by weak
    returns and deeper than avg drawdowns, Goldman says...this time? trillions coming in....could persist—both equity and fixed income appear to pricing in tightens, Goldman says... They recommend owning high growth, high margin stocks
  • Countdown to the Fed decision Wednesday... have to expect a more harsh statement and the beginning of a tougher time being long... we are still oversold and headed into the Santa rally, but the Wednesday meeting will be the first of many not so good ones as the Fed tries to get the funds rate back to a higher level...
  • Pfizer (PFE)... hold to buy at UBS...notes $50B in potential Covid sales?... FCF $70B...Pfizer buys CAR T-cell company, Arena Pharma for $100 a share... gasping at this one...gastro, ulcerative colitis; Crohn's diseases; irritable bowel; atopic dermatitis...
  • Braze (BRZE)... Oppenheimer and Goldman initiate recent IPO with buy... OPCO says it has mastered the art of optimizing customer engagement; push stuff to users... like Twilio (TWLO)...

  • UserTesting (USER)... another new one like BRZE…only $1B market cap... another online experience provider... recent IPO initiated at all buys... tells you what customer is thinking but when I went to look at the demo it kept stopping and I moved on…not encouraging…
  • UBS doesn't like the pipeline of Merck (MRK) and downgrades it to hold…$98 goes to $76... might as well make it sell… cites lack of catalysts...
  • PE firms have done 13,000 deals globally in first 11 months—The Economist...buying wealth assets and all sorts of other businesses, many more deals in pipe... that we realize? $1.8 trillion raised...
  • Buybacks $234B... RBC piece-must read says these are incredibly important when factoring in the rally in the market.
  • Way too much emphasis placed on HOW we got to where we are in markets?... is this like Fantasy Football where some stocks just have a very high ceiling??
  • Broadcom (AVGO)... waiting for dividend boost and buyback has started... Barclays goes from $540 to $650; Citi $585 to $685...
  • General Mills (GIS) reports next week... is this a winner now (Kellogg strike)?... Deutsche Bank pt $71 goes to $72
  • Mizuho raises Centene (CNC) $70 to $78... keeps a neutral because of valuation...
