What I am looking at, December 21, 2021:

  • Beginning of the Santa Claus rally today?… has been like this almost every year since 2007… buying today and selling at New Year's has been incredibly reliable…
  • President will buy 500 million tests… where is he going to get them?
  • I still have Covid… more symptomatic today, day six… Omicron—73% of new infections last week, according to CDC… really big in Northeast… 70x more contagious than Delta, study says…
  • How long can NFL play?…Eagles tonight against the Washington Football Team… league, my sources say, quite confident no pause…
  • Micron (MU) star of the show: high-performance computing, 5G, AI, Metaverse… supply chain ease in 2022… all bullish…
  • Nike (NKE) earnings… not as bad as we thought….China sales down 20%…US -China tensions…obligatory price target increase by Piper Sandler—victory lap?…
  • Revisit Oracle (ORCL)?… this move into Cerner is key for another leg, a higher multiple leg… KeyBanc doesn't like this accretive deal… I am not betting against CEO Safra Catz and Chair Larry Ellison… Deutsche Bank says shareholders of Oracle will come to like the deal…
  • Alibaba (BABA) downgraded by Atlantic… is the slowdown in China manufactured to keep the Olympic games on?… and how can you host the games without long quarantine???…
  • KLA Corp. (KLAC)…Wells Fargo goes hold to buy… makes sense off of MU?
  • United Rentals (URI)… Baird goes from buy to hold Baird… supply chains easing, so don't need rental??…says employee shortage will play havoc with use…
  • Lisa Gill from JPMorgan downgrades Cigna (CI)…very bad for Cigna as Gill has been a supporter and is a great analyst…
  • Gill then downgrades HCA Healthcare (HCA) buy to hold…
  • Cathie Wood keeps buying Blade Air Mobility (BLDE)… Why? Let's listen to Rob Wiesenthal, CEO, tonight on Mad Money…
  • Big rebound in Bitcoin… some calling for regulation…that would be so strong says FTX CEO Sam Bankman Fried…
  • General Mills (GIS) miss?…be careful selling…sees org sales 4%-5% for full year—had seen growth down as much as 3%… $0.99 v. $1.05 estimates BUT sales $5.02B; v. $4.84B in revs… 
  • JPMorgan health outlook… says Eli Lilly (LLY) best in class; Abbvie (ABBV) value; likes Zoetis (ZTS) in animal health… LLY and ABBV are very big club names…
  • UBS names three club names as winners for '22: favorite is Nvidia (NVDA), Marvell Technology (MRVL) as broadband play; Broadcom (AVGO) as income play… likes Micron as cycles have become more durable… We have MU CEO on Squawk on the Street this morning…Trust owns NVDA, MRVL and AVGO…
