What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.

Caterpillar Earnings. Ford Earnings

Here is the spin put on Caterpillar's earning report.
A heathy demand and the abilility to raise prices. No mentioning of the word covid. A referencing to 9% inflation. How management phases each little morsel is so ever important. The stock tanked on the news - on the takeaway that the company was running at full speed in a world of floods, wars and and of infrastructure building. It stock was punished. Strange. Ford had a wild and colorful story. It got punished for reasons which soon become apparent. A company still making millions of dollars in an environment amuck with change. Fourth quarter net income fell.
Tomorrow I will fill you in on why the Friday Call holders wished they had Puts. Here is what happened.
The 12 series of Calls opened up down over 90%. What a wabble. Now here is it's year to date chart.
The story of what is going to happen next with Ford never ends.
