Stock Opinions by Bryn Talkington

COMMENT
There's a sentiment shift from negative to more positive as the market sees peak inflation. Caveat: August volumes are light and can be volatile. We're not out of the clear yet.

She just sold it. In December 30, she reduced her ARKK holding and wanted small-cap value stocks--which actually give you high correlation to an expanding economy. SVAL in 2021 was up 33% vs. Russell 2000's 14%. He loved this ETF then. However, we're now later in the cycle, so it was time to sell SVAL. Instead, she just bought COWZ which offers equal weighting across industries and focuses on high-quality companies with good free cash-flow yields.

She just sold this. That said, history says you need to technology to perform in order for the S&P to reach new highs. Tech has rallied 20% off the bottom. She sold QQQ and just bought JEPQ instead. JEPQ owns the Nasdaq 100 but sells 3-5% out of the money calls. As volatility remains high, she still gets that tech exposure but in a more defensive way. We won't get this V-shaped rally for the rest of the year.

BUY
Apple has a 7.3% weighting on the S&P. Even with the tech sell-off, Apple has gotten stronger. She has been selling tech stocks, but the S&P won't rally until tech rallies. Not financials. You still need to own technology.

COMMENT
It comes down to execution, and depends on the company. Some companies like Apple and Microsoft executed, not Intel. Stay cautious. We still have high inflation. Market expectations were bad going into earnings season. We're still in uncharted waters.

COMMENT
She isn't surprised with strong earnings from oil companies today. Oil will be the bright spot in earnings this year. The supply/demand imbalance will keep inflation high and continue.

She sold Amazon in May--her worst trade of the year--around $110, and bought Meta around $190.

Like Snap, when there's no growth or earnings, then you guide down, then miss on earnings and revenues, there's no place for this company in the market. No surprise it's down 25%. All the streamers have come down. Roku is actually a great company, but how do you value it?

BUY
Reported a mix quarter today. Though shares are down today, it's still up 5% YTD. AbbVie re-affirmed guidance. She wouldn't read too much into the quarter.

HOLD
Their last two quarters have frustrated her. She blames management who two quarters ago said they would focus less on growing new users, but rather increasing revenue on their user base. An activist could come in. She's hanging on, but running out of patience. She's hanging on because their Venmo is so interesting.

BUY
It's come down with all the streamers. Great content matters. Top Gun and the Offer were hits and attracted viewers. This is really interesting under $24.
communications / media
BUY
JEPQ is a defensive way to play tech, which holds a big part of the Nasdaq 100. JPM sells 3-4% of the out-of-the money calls. This gives you income.

SELL
She sold XLE, her biggest exposure to energy. She remains positive on energy, but the XLE chart was parabolic and unsustainable, so she took profits. Use covered calls to play energy stocks.
