Radian Doesn't Look Radiant

Radian (RDN), which is another loser today, is pricing in a severe housing downturn. As I promised, I'll have more to say about RDN later this week.

In a Buying Mood

I've made more buys today. They include JPMorgan Chase (JPM); Wells Fargo (WFC), which recently was added to my Best Ideas List; Radian Group (RDN), which I'll have more on next week; Oaktree Capital Group (OAK); and Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB), whic...

Today's Takeaways and Observations

An early look at today's action: Computer-driven volatility today, again. A lot of fear in the media -- but where were they 200 handles higher in the S&P Index? The key feature, to me, was not the continued decline in oil prices; it was the strength...

Today's Trades

My trades so far today include: Small shorts of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at $199.29 and the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) at $108.51. Small additions to the following bank/financial longs: Bank of America (BAC) at $15.12, Citibank (C) at $50.10, JPMor...

Today's Takeaways and Observations (Early Edition)

I have about a two-hour conference call shortly on a potential "home-run" stock that I've been working on for a month, so I'm delivering today's Takeaways and Observations earlier than usual. Here they are: I think a confluence of: 1) a sell-off of ...

My Latest Trades

Here's a rundown of my latest trades: I've further added to my short of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) on a scale all the way up to $205.70. I'm also adding to my longs of Potash Corp. (POT), Radian (RDN) and Twitter (TWTR) and the United States Oil ETF...

My Latest Trades

I'm buying some market laggards this morning, including Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY), Best Buy (BBY), Macy's (M), Radian (RDN), Potash Corp. (POT) and Twitter (TWTR). By contrast, I'm shorting the market's leaders by shorting the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY).

15 Surprises for 2016 (Part Deux)

Here's the remainder of my 15 Surprises for 2016 (click here for part one). Again, these aren't "predictions" for 2016, but rather a list of potential events that have a reasonable chance of occurring. Again, I call them "possible improbable events"...

Adding More Twitter, Radian and Potash Corp.

I continue to add to my long of Twitter (TWTR), Potash Corp. (POT) and Radian (RDN) today. All look like reasonable "post-tax-selling-bounce" candidates to me.

Today's Takeaways and Observations

My thoughts on the day as we near the closing bell: Second day in which the markets rebounded. At day's highs at 3:30 p.m. Last program standing will, once again, determine the last half-hour's price action. Very low volume. Bad high-frequency econo...

My Latest Trades

I've added to my shorts of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) and the PowerShares QQQ ETF (QQQ) on this morning's ramp-up. I've also added to my long of Twitter (TWTR), as well as of Radian (RDN) and Potash Corp. (POT).

Today's Takeaways and Observations

My thoughts to this point of the day: Thus far a tepid bounce following two awful trading sessions. Spiders (up about 50 cents a share on the day) are more than a dollar off of their morning highs. The U.S. dollar was weaker against the euro, spurri...

Adding Some More Twitter, Radian and Potash

My guess (and it's only a guess) is that Mr. Market could rally over the next few days given his current oversold condition. As such, I've been adding to my longs of tax-loss candidates Radian (RDN), Potash Corp. (POT) and Twitter (TWTR).

Today's Takeaways and Observations

I am participating in a telephonic board meeting of a public company (I'm a member of its board), so this comes out earlier today. Dougie I am. I hope you enjoyed! Shkreli -- pride goeth before the fall. And then KaloBios Pharmaceuticals (KBIO) like...

The Long and Short of My 'Best Ideas' List

I have 10 longs and 16 shorts on my "Best Ideas" list. My longs are concentrated in financials and retail, while my shorts are less thematic and more based on bottoms-up research. Seems reasonable to me.

The Long and Short of It

Here is a partial list of my current longs and shorts: Longs: Yahoo! (YHOO), Potash (POT), Citigroup (C), Bank of America (BAC), JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB), Twitter (TWTR), Macy's (M), Best Buy (BBY), Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY),...

Today's Takeaways and Observations

Thoughts on the day as the closing bell nears: Big win for the bulls. Broad-based rally that didn't look back all day. Now at session highs. Feels like panic short covering, with many offsides, coupled with buy programs. The U.S. dollar declined a t...

My Latest Trades

I'm adding to my longs of Radian (RDN) with a $14.20 limit and of the ProShares UltraShort S&P 500 ETF (SDS) with a $19.95 limit. I'm also bidding across the board for banks.

Radian's Outlook Is Pretty Radiant

Radian (RDN) conducted its first investors' day in nine years yesterday -- and in my view, the information presented should reverse the negative sentiment and share-price decline that the company has seen since releasing third-quarter earnings on Oc...

Today's Takeaways and Observations

Here's an early afternoon edition of Takeaways: My opening missive suggested that the markets would not fold under the pressure of Friday's terrorist attack, that they could actual trade OK; those remarks proved correct.  That said, I expect that th...

What I Want to Hear from Radian

Radian (RDN) will hold its latest investors' day in New York at 9 a.m. ET tomorrow. It's a propitious time for the meeting, as RDN shares have recently retreated after ripping higher early this year. Management will likely focus on these key items: ...

Today's Takeaways and Observations

My thoughts as the day wraps up: I give the win to the bears today (finally!), as Mr. Market (thus far) has made two failing attempts to rally. Bonds continued to drop in price and rise in yield. As I mentioned, in response to Kim G in the Comments ...

Today's Takeaways and Observations

My thoughts on the day to this point: A down day, thus far. S&P near the day's low. SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at $206, or about 30 cents above the day's low. Fairly bad breadth on the NYSE. Qs (Nasdaq) are creaming Ss (S&P) who are creaming Rs (Russell...

Buying More Radian as Stock Falls on Earnings Miss

Radian (RDN) reported $0.31 in earnings per share on an operating basis -- a five-cent miss vs. expectations -- and with the shares down some $2 as a result, I'm adding to my long position. The company's loss ratio (often a lumpy number owing to the...

Today's Takeaways and Observations

Here are my thoughts on the day: Another win for the bulls, though the market does seem tired. (Or is it me that is tired??!!!??) A bit of a fade near the close as I write "Takeaways." And that is despite very weak TFANGS (the "T" -- as in Tesla (TS...

Adding to Radian Group

I am adding to Radian Group (RDN) at $16.10 now.

From The Street of Dreams

BTIG reiterates its Buy rating in Radian (RDN), with a $22 price target.

Today's Trades (Part Deux)

Here's a rundown of trades that I've recently made: I re-established my long rental of the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) at $189.95. In the banking space, I added to my longs of Bank of America (BAC) at $15.42, Citigroup (C) at $49.41 and JPMorgan Chase (J...

Takeaways Aplenty Today

Here are my observations so far today: Who's more scared? The bulls, in all likelihood. Sentiment, coincident with the market's schmeissing, has built up in recent days. That's a potential plus, but sentiment is not a terrific timing tool. Just turn...

Taking a Shine to Radian

Radian (RDN) is my largest non-ETF stock buy today.
