One of the fascinating things about financial bubbles is how they transform great companies into screaming short sale candidates. Put another way, bear markets tend to throw even the prettiest babies out with the bathwater. 

Here, for instance, is what happened to Cisco Systems, the dominant maker of networking gear (the devices that run the Internet) when the 1990s tech stock bubble burst, bankrupting many of its customers and causing its earnings to miss expectations. Its stock fell by more than three-fourths and those who had bought it during the previous year’s euphoria got hosed.

Cisco recovered, as great companies do, and continues to lead its part of the tech world. Current market cap: $160 billion.

As Good as it Gets; Like 2000 With a TWIST

With the Semiconductor sector below but hailing its all-time highs, a lot of images come to mind; chief among them the 1999-2000 stock market bubble…

In early 2013 we noted a progression that would go on to birth the current economic expansion and stock market boom (of course, I didn’t come close to envisioning the extent of the boom that followed). I’ve belabored it often since, but here’s the short version of the progression yet again…

Fiscal Cliff drama resolves into market relief after Q4 2012 and this occurs right around the time we noted that Semiconductor Fab equipment bookings were ramping up → which projected a ramp in the cyclical Semiconductor industry → which would lead general manufacturing → which projected broader economic firming → which projected improving employment → and with ISM currently booming and the Semi cycle in full swing, voila, we are still on that continuum.

Speaking of which, and considering I am not one for subtlety, here’s the Continuum again so you have a cartoon to consider while digesting the rest of this post.

Todd Market Forecast: Buffet Says He Likes The Stock Market

For 3pm PST Wednesday October 4 , 2017

DOW + 20 on 59 net declines

NASDAQ COMP + 3 on 16 net advances



STOCKS: The market was pretty much flat on Wednesday with a mild upward bias. Helping hold things up may have been a somewhat better than expected ISM number. Also, Warren Buffett was on the wire stating that he liked the stock market. This was probably a minor, but positive influence.

GOLD: Gold inched up from an oversold condition. Still looks bearish.

CHART: The Russell 2000 was lower today. Frequently, it leads the Dow and S&P 500. We'll soon see. Like tomorrow.

Stock Market Combo Chart…Breakouts

All the different stock market indexes have now broken out above the top rail of their rising patterns except for the two tech indexes. The IWC, micro caps, continues to be the strongest sector. I know it may not feel like it, but rising wedges and flags that slope up in the same direction of the uptrend tells us the uptrend is very strong.
