Higher Rates? Who Cares?

I sold out of O, for a small gain. The pervasiveness of ascending interest rates has my attention, which caused me to sell the stock. I don’t want yield. I want growth and short squeezes.

I sold out of FRO, marking an end of an era. It ended with a whimper, pretty much breaking even on the entire position. That’s alright, since I am +35% for the year.

With the O proceeds, I bulked up on SCTY, making it a top 3 position. I also added to SHLD.

Look, rates are going up and the market isn’t going down. This is bullish. Pay attention and try to keep up.

If you’re unable to adapt, you’ll never make it in this business.

    This fucker is the most powerful person in the world and he can’t string a sentence together. Jesus Christ, take a public speaking class. He is lying through his teeth. His quavering voice is as annoying as his inability to spit out a coherent sentence.

      Not to be snarky or anything, but didn’t you write 2 weeks ago the market was at “the crossroads of hell”? And in March didn’t you write the market was now entering a bear market? You’d have a lot more credibility if your predictions weren’t so wild, young fella.
