Peak Activism Looming? Real Money Pro($)

For the life of me, I don't see the enthusiasm surrounding Qualcomm's (QCOM) results and the announcement that it is appeasing Jana Partners.
Honeywell's Cote, Google's Porat and PPG's Bunch are game-changers.
A midsummer review of start-of-the-year predictions.
The global equity markets remain "forgiving" and, arguably, complacent, in the face of tepid economic and profit growth and continued sovereign debt issues. None of these headwinds are likely to subside in the time ahead. However, excluding the energy sector, aggregate price momentum in the U.S. stock market is undeniably higher, thus further emboldening the bullish cabal. (Note: I continue to maintain very modest net short exposure.) The word "forgiving" also applies to markets ignoring quality-of-earnings issues, as seen in numerous second-quarter profit reports that have been buoyed by buybacks (financial engineering), lower effective tax rates (see Intel (INTC), which exceeded reduced expectations), a soaring U.S. dollar and its impact on U.S. exports, a broadening drop in the price of commodities (e.g., copper, oil, steel), and the ongoing "pretend and extend" in Greece.  The word "complacent" applies to the emergence of a rejection of any fear and disbelief, as every dip is purchased and the future is anything but uncertain and dark. Market distortions are multiple. The Federal Reserve is screwing up and distorting markets. while China is in deep doo doo and will likely be a disruptive economic and market force in the next year (and I am not convinced their problems will be contained). The region's potential problems could eclipse the U.S. 2007-09 experience. (Ludicris Forecast: One day China will close the entire stock market). This week, investors continue look to the sky and to "concepts" – to some degree rejecting the notion of current profits as a tool of valuation. Just look at Tesla (TSLA), Netflix (NFLX) and the biotech sector's price action. I suppose, to some degree, "eyeballs" are back. If Netflix was an athlete, it would be Jordan Spieth. If Jordan Spieth was a stock, he would be Netflix!   Tuesday and Wednesday's profit reports were mixed. CNBC's "Delivering Alpha" confirms Peak Activism ... at least to me. Targets are getting larger and the rationale behind the purchases seems to be more and more stretched and even arcane. Public acquisition companies are being touted (Ackman), which confirms my fears, as this usually marks the near-end of a cycle. So far there has been only one big loser -- DuPont (DD) -- marking a possible Activism Peak, but I expect more bagholder blues ahead. So be careful in following activists and their acquisitions. Speaking of "Peaks," they are numerous, almost too many to list now. At the head of the list might be the decelerating rate of growth in U.S. industrial production (see yesterday's report of a two-month flattening in manufacturing production). Exchange volume remains quite low. In this environment, the role of high-frequency trading and price momentum strategies is likely exaggerating the short-term trends (this week higher, last week lower). So I don't trust this week's added gains. Yellen appears likely to endorse one rate hike this year based on yesterday's testimony. The market has already embedded this likelihood. Domestic growth is subpar, and I expect the yield curve to flatten on the announcement of a rate increase later this year. Interest rates, as measured by the 10-year U.S. note yield, which is now at 2.38%, remain at plus or minus 20 basis points from 2.40% for the rest of the summer.         Trump being Trump. And based on the week's narrative and sharp words, the political partisanship should also be peaking in the next 12 months leading up to the presidential election in November 2016, which will  underscore the haplessness and fiscal inertia so apparent in Washington, D.C. (in both parties). The fake Twitter blog/release was wild on Tuesday. I have been steadily buying. Not surprisingly, I saw no (none, nada) market bears in the business media over the last two days. Short sellers remain an endangered species. Didn't my cousin Sandy Koufax look amazing at Tuesday's All-Star Game?  Depending on timeframe, there alwa
They've done well considering market had a slightly negative month.
