Six Flags Magic Mountain, Lots of Roller Coasters

 

Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA has quite a few roller coasters. Some are bigger than others, some are quiet, some are loud. The drops are all different sizes.

 

The nice thing is you know what is going to happen if you have ridden them once before. Sometimes you may forget a turn or two, but overall you know where the drops are.

 

The problem in the market right now is people can only remember the big last roller coaster we rode in 2008 and 2009. Well, we have all ridden this before also numerous times. 10% drops are normal for the market.

 

They are also normal for the month of August as we've seen today with the 500+ point drop in the DOW and now official 10% correction marks hit also for the S&P and NASDAQ.

 

This roller coaster has unfortunately been ridden 90 times prior. People are just worried it the same one we rode last time. The catalyst driving this forward is the fact that Washington made a mess of the debate of the so called debt ceiling.

 

This may sound like a broken record, but corporate earnings continue to escalate and beat their estimates as well as the quarter over quarter earnings. This is great for the market.

 

However, the CEO's are not ready to hire which is the main problem due to the uncertainty in Washington. It is hard to enter a double dip recession when corporate earnings are doing well.

 

Just because consumer spending is flat does not mean corporate earnings will fall. These profits as they continue will force the market higher as savings are picking up (supply/demand).

 

Our year-end estimates are still intact for the S&P to be above 1400. Based upon research it appears the third quarter will be tough and we would start coming out of it towards the end of the quarter.
