Stock Opinions by Bryn Talkington

COMMENT
The Nasdaq has been very oversold. Today, the smallcap techs are especially ripping. All tech still has so far to run. But sentiment in the short term at least has shifted. We'll see if the intraday rally holds by the close. This won't be a quick bounce like Dec. 2018 and March 2020, but rather a paradigm shift with a slower grind going forward. Be patient. But don't pivot out of growth and into free cash-flow companies.

STRONG BUY
She bought this yesterday when it fell 11%, because she's very bullish energy. They're buying back shares, lowering their debt, have a 16% free cash flow yield (S&P is 5%) and raised their dividend to 8%. They check all the boxes. She paid around $62 to hold it long term.
oil / gas
BUY
People want cash flow and now cash burn now. Biotech is bouncing like cryptos. You can buy this of IBB, but there are huge opportunities in biotech.

WATCH
Sold off strong this week, but rebounding huge today. She's bullish cryptos, and is taking a long-term view. In the next month or so, she's keeping an eye on the regulatory environment before adding more. Wants to see the sector settle down first.

BUY
Long-duration corporates have had their worst sell-off since March 2020 and time to recover. Pays a 4% yield.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Even their great quarter isn't reflected in their valuation.
Transportation
BUY
Apple tells us about supply chains, consumers and technology in general. CEO Cook continues to execute and will do so. Apple has held up much better than most tech stocks, which are juggernauts with cash flows--nothing like tech in 2000.

COMMENT
She's a fully invested bear. The S&P is up 16% in the past 12 months. She's been doing lots of covered calls. Energy and agriculture are areas to invest in.

BUY
We're hitting strong technical resistance on the Nasdaq and S&P. The latter has had a huge run; she targets 14,800-15,000 where it will hit strong headwinds. As a trader, she isn't adding fresh trades on high-growth stocks. However, look at Block/Square, which is up 40% compared to PayPal which she owns which hasn't moved that much at all. At some point, markets will make new highs, so which stocks will have more strength. Also look at Nvidia. Once this market gets going you will want to be in this name and Block.

BUY
Good technicals, share buybacks and increasing dividends.
food processing
BUY
Shares are down 58% from highs. Short it? Look at the shorting of Tesla five years ago; the shorters compared the compare to GM, but they missed the broad market reception to Tesla. Coinbase is similar; it's not just a trading platform, but more. Like Schwab 30 years ago, COIN is disruptive yet visionary. COIN has 89 million users and 11.4 million per month. Beyond exchanges, COIN will roll out their NFT marketplace, which is promising Shorting is short-sighted. She's long.

COMMENT
Today's plunge on worsening news in the Russian invasion of Ukraine There's no bad weather, only bad wardrobe. The current market is not in the same as march/April 2020. Now, we're dealing with the the Fed's hikes, US midterms and the travesty by Russia. Throw in nukes into the conversation. This will be a tough year. You need dividend and covered call stocks to get through this and not rely on tech growth stocks.

BUY
A good covered call strategy would be to sell the June 134s, which will give 9% upside, and collect $8 which is over 6% of premium income all for a little over three months' holding period.

COMMENT
Hot inflation data and future rate hikes Future interest rate hikes will depend on economic data. Remember that WTI last year this time was $59 and now it's $90, a 35% increase that has a huge impact on inflation. But as we move forward, this rate of change will decline with some hot data (like today) for the next few months, but that will wane. Also, the Fed is still buying bonds now. The next few months will be volatile. She doesn't think the Fed will hike 50 basis points at once. The Fed will be very transparent. Don't forget that the federal debt is $30 trillion, so each 1% increase is $300 billion in interest.
Unknown
BUY
A sector to buy now during rising inflation and rising rates are small caps. To buy this, own SVAL which has good exposure to small, regional banks and small-cap value industrials.
