More Short 'Alpha' Today

I concluded yesterday with the following: Suffice to say, Mr. Market continued to show the sort of resiliency it has had for many months -- rallying from a 12-handle drop in the S&P Index to even at day's end. However, I did have one of my best shor...

P&G Reports; I'm Not Impressed

The initial response to Procter & Gamble's earnings was positive.   I think this will prove to be an incorrect response.   P&G, Unilever and Modelez are three consumer packaged goods shorts that reside on my Best Ideas List.   All three face formida...

Putting Off the Inevitable

Suffice to say, Mr. Market continued to show the sort of resiliency it has had for many months -- rallying from a 12-handle drop in the S&P Index to even at day's end.  However, I did have one of my best short alpha days in individual stocks, as I c...

No Love for Consumer Staples

While the consumer packaged goods stocks are stable today, yesterday they got schmeissed.   Campbell Soup was down by over $1, Procter & Gamble $1.70, Unilever $1 and so on.   This space represents a secular investment short for me.   To me these ar...

Consumer Package Goods Slacking

Consumer packaged goods companies are all slackers today. I have investment shorts in Unilever , Mondelez and Procter & Gamble . Here is my short thesis.

The Long and (Mostly) Short of It

I added to my already large SPDR S&P 500 short at $248.03 and to my large ProShares UltraPro Short QQQ long at $26.50.   I took off a small amount of my Allergan long at $231.55, trading aggressively around this core investment. I have moved down in...
