Big Cap Update

I cited some data that suggested yesterday’s sell-off was rather girly and highly un-menly.

Lets look at stocks over 50b that are up or down more than 2.5%:

These numbers are not egregious.  During a real menly man’s selloff, you will see many more down than just the 7 listed here (for reference there are 128 stocks > 50b in mkt cap)

Today there are 46 / 128 stocks with a market cap of greater than 50b moving up by more than 2.5%, 35.9%.  This is a TON of money, not smallcap players, which is why we look at this.

I don’t use this stat to “predict” the next days direction but rather, get a sense about how serious big players (pensions, MFs, etc etc) are about today’s direction.  Today?  They seem enthused.
