Citi Field and Bitcoin have something in common — they’re both electric. That’s a big plus in baseball, but a big negative in crypto where volatility is no longer shocking.
CDs have joined 8-tracks in the rear view, but vinyl is back. Could the market pre-Fed announcement make a comeback too?
We’ve got Spin Doctors on the radio, the pitcher’s mound, and at the Fed, and yesterday’s shot across the bow may be the first sign of a more aggressive Fed going forward.
The Fed blew it all Sky High and, last year, had a reason why. Today, on the other hand? Is Jerome Powell trying to do too much?

Major League team owners and Fortune 500 CEOs have a lot in common, but fans and shareholders probably don’t want to hear an excuse from either. Should a team owner give forward guidance like a CEO?
From CDC guidelines to C+C Music Factory, we’re wondering about a lift in the market. Was it algorithms and keywords or optimism on reopening? Either way, Disney plays the Best of Both Worlds with streaming and parks.
Once a band is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, they’re a part of it — sort of like how the Fed is a part of the market, whether it belongs there or not.
The market was down in early innings, but made a comeback. We’ve seen this game before, and it’s usually business-as-usual in a few days. Could the dollar’s status as a reserve currency be at risk?
Despite the S&P’s all-time highs, big names like Square, Peloton, Zoom, and The Trade Desk may find their multiples hard to live up to.

Sometimes having a short term memory works out to your advantage — whether we’re talking sports or markets.
Today we celebrate the great Jack Nicholson’s birthday. His filmography is as good as it gets, but not flawless — which might also describe Chipotle, Tesla, and Netflix.
Archegos may have washed away, but the stocks commonly associated with it are riding a wave. Sometimes you have to wait until the tide comes in.
The date is 4/20, but times have changed. 2021 sees some highly profitable companies that weren’t fully baked in the days of Cheech & Chong, or even 2018 and 2019.
