The FED raised rates yesterday, the DOW continues to flirt with media grabbing 20k level, energy companies took advantage of the recent rip in oil to announce $2-billion dollars in secondary and the year is coming to an end.
The indices were down across the board, the negative action took place after the FED meeting. Gold (-1.47%) and the gold miners (GDX -5.47%, GDXJ -6.40%) were the biggest losers, and they are following through this morning.
Looking at the big picture, the SP500 is still trading well above its recent 2.7-year breakout as you can see in the chart below. In other words, if your timeframe is longer than a few days then things are fine. Pullbacks will happen, but as long as we stay above, 2,080 things will be okay.
With that being said; below are the stocks on my watchlist today, I have an interest in these stocks on the long side if and only if they go through yesterday’s high.

We live in a world in which we are bombarded with information, tweets, blogs, etc., content is the new salesman, content is the new marketing, content is the new networking. With information being so readily available, bloggers try to differentiate themselves with their writing skills, volume, and consistency, putting out blog posts to meet quotas. We are seeking to stand out from the crowd by showing performance, by taking all the information and seeking alpha, that’s the sole purpose of the blog. It won’t always be pretty; it’s never easy, and performance is spotty, but we seek superior risk-adjusted returns, not notoriety for our writing skills. If this is something you can relate to, then this blog is for you.
