Another Friday. But not just any Friday, this is the Friday ahead of what many are turning into the 4th of July Friday. Many many Wall Streeters have already fled the city and don't plan to return until Wednesday. With the Holiday on Tuesday, and the market only open half a day Monday, they bailed out and started their long weekend.

Morning all, welcome to a new day. 

I'm sure you all saw the action yesterday. It was nuts!  Then after the close when it was announced that ALL the banks passed the stress tests, they all announced dividend hikes and buy backs. Pretty funny isn't it? They can't seem to lend money to small business, but they can announce50 billion in stock buy backs.

Hi everyone.  

Boy am I late this am. The wife is out of town, and I guess subconsciously I must use her morning activity as an alarm clock, because I slept over an hour past normal. If it weren't for the lawn crew making noise, I might still be asleep. Wow.

Good morning all!  

I'm having some fits with my Internet this morning. I noticed the Comcast folks driving around the area last evening and this morning my connectivity is pretty hit or miss. Let's hope I don't go down here while I'm trying to post.

Good morning everyone, welcome to a new week. 

I'm going to trust that your weekend was wonderful, as mine certainly was.  I left Friday with the wife to attend some meetings with her, and those finished up Saturday morning.  Well the good part was that those Saturday connections just happened to take place in a resort that we love to frequent when we can. So, Saturday afternoon was spent sipping cocktails by the pool, soaking us some sun and simply enjoying life.

NOTE>>> Tomorrow there's only going to be one update... the premarket update.  I promised the wife I'd go with her on a business trip, and we leave at about 9:30.  I just wanted to get that out of the way so I don't forget.

Hi all....

Welcome to June 21, the summer Solstice!  Today if you live north of the Equator,  today will be the longest day of sunlight of the year.  Depending on how far north you live, the more light hours you get. Parts of Alaska will have sunlight for 20+ hours. 
So by all means, enjoy the day, it only happens once a year and unfortunately starting tomorrow night we'll start to contract our sunlight every day. Booo.

Hello all.... ready for more?

So it's a sleepy June weekend. Nothing big going on except for an escalation over in Syria.  We come into Monday and for "some" reason ( probably related to Friday's options expirations)  we put in a massive up day, gaining 145 DOW points, 20 S&P's, anjd 87 on the NASDAQ.  Tech rebounded from it's tiny sell off of the previous week, Financials got a bid, and the industrials continued higher. It was pretty amazing to watch.

Hi all, welcome back from the weekend. As always I hope it was a good one for you. Down here the weather change has really tossed a wrench in our agenda. They (the weather people) told us that Saturday would be a washout and Sunday was your best chance for "outside activity". So of course we planned mundane things for Saturday and it was bright and sunny all day.  Go figure. So Sunday, we attempted a bike ride.
