Don't bottom-fish. The bubble has burst for these former hot stocks.
An oversold bounce is just not that easy to achieve this time.
Tesla (TSLA), which I put on my "Best Short Ideas" list in October and made my "Short Trade of the Week" on Jan. 28, fell from $275 last July to around $153 this morning (dropping -$13 on Friday alone). Facebook (FB) has fallen from $115 on Feb. 1 to about $101 today (and -$7 on Friday). Amazon (AMZN) has tumbled from nearly $694 on Dec. 29 to $479 this morning (down $36 on Friday). Netflix (NFLX), which is also on my "Best Short Ideas" list, has tanked from almost $131 on Dec. 4 to $81 at last check this morning (including -$7 on Friday). Alphabet/Google (GOOG, GOOGL) has dropped from nearly $795 on Dec. 29 to around $695 for GOOG so far today (-$24.44 on Friday). I've been short on the TFANGs with the exception of Alphabet. (I profitably covered my FB and AMZN shorts recently, but remain short on NFLX and TSLA). A Little History The market's technical complexion began to change in late 2014, with Wall Street's leadership narrowing.  I consistently warned at the time that historically, a narrowing market bodes poorly for stocks' major indices. Typically, leadership narrows because around 98% of stocks are facing challenges while the remaining 2% float in euphoria. But mathematically, the major indices' few winners can't long disguise what's going on with everyone else. Nonetheless, investors embraced the TFANGs for seven years. To paraphrase Peter, Paul and Mary: "Puffed, the Magic Dragon Lived by the sea. And frolicked in the autumn mist In a land called Silicon Valley." But last March in The Power of Free, I warned that while social-media and the technology disruptors like the TFANGs might be at the edge of huge innovations, they might also represent "profitless prosperity." As I wrote at the time: "For me, at these valuations and within the context of the broader market's levels, there is a bit of you either are a believer or you aren't. Obviously, anything can happen in the short term, and more power to profitable trading. As an investment, however, the markets (and their valuations) seem to be saying that Facebook, OpenTable, Priceline (PCLN), TripAdvisor (TRIP), Yelp (YELP), GrubHub (GRUB), LinkedIn (LNKD), Salesforce (CRM) and that ilk are indeed not just changing the world for consumers and corporations, but are going to be profit machines for decades. That is not hyperbole. Being here to stay, which is even uncertain for some of the aforementioned names, is not even close to good enough, in my humble opinion. I am not a believer in social media, new tech, sustainable profit margins of the cloud, the endless power of big data, the optimistic prospects for smart advertising and the like being profit machines for decades. I am not even a believer that a majority of these companies will be profit machines, ever. Rather, the new social-media paradigm is reminiscent of another new paradigm infamously featured in a column in Wired Magazine back in 1997: The Long Boom: A History of the Future 1980-2020. Written by Peter Schwartz and Peter Leyden, the article started with the following summary of view that proved to turn out poorly, as two recessions (one was shallow; the other represented the deepest contraction in nearly 80 years) followed soon after during the next decade: 'We're facing 25 years of prosperity, freedom, and a better environment for the whole world. You got a problem with that?' -- Doug's Daily Diary, The Power of Free (March 9, 2015) Given the deep recent drops in the TFANGs, LNKD and DATA, we must now ask: What were investors thinking when the TFANGs were a lot higher? My answer: Onc
I am using the downturn to continue to build up positions in value stocks.
Like a dark cloud, the bear market spreads to cover everything.
The stock is totally out of synch with the fundamentals.
The price action stinks. Respect that fact.
Anything else will bring out sellers galore.
I wouldn't try to catch this knife here.
