Turn off the music, close up the bar and call it a night

While the “bad news is good news” move in the market over the last few days is decidedly more enjoyable than those gut-wrenching market falls of late, it’s like a party that goes on for too long; at some point someone has to turn off the music, close up the bar and call it a night.
We’ve already seen some warning signs that it might be time to head out before things get awkward in the form of negative earnings pre-announcements for several companies.


In this week’s issue of Tematica Insights:

  • With the September ISM Manufacturing Survey out, what does it mean for inflation and any potential Fed action on rates later this year.
  • Is this a good time to jump on buying opportunities with all the negative earnings pre-announcements coming out?
  • China’s adoption of Western diet demonstrates how thematics can play-out in society.
  • Tematica Select List company Skyworks ([stock_quote symbol=”SWKS”]) makes a move, which has adds an interesting wrinkle to our Connected Society thematic.

About the Author

Chris Versace, Chief Investment Officer
I'm the Chief Investment Officer of Tematica Research and editor of Tematica Investing newsletter. All of that capitalizes on my near 20 years in the investment industry, nearly all of it breaking down industries and recommending stocks. In that time, I've been ranked an All Star Analyst by Zacks Investment Research and my efforts in analyzing industries, companies and equities have been recognized by both Institutional Investor and Thomson Reuters’ StarMine Monitor. In my travels, I've covered cyclicals, tech and more, which gives me a different vantage point, one that uses not only an ecosystem or food chain perspective, but one that also examines demographics, economics, psychographics and more when formulating my investment views. The question I most often get is "Are you related to…."
