This is Your Captain Speaking

You look at your watch and smile. Your plane will be landing soon. Next thing you know the plane starts banking to the left when the captain explains that you are in a holding pattern and your arrival will be delayed.

That is just like what happened on Friday when stocks could not reach their next destination at 1565. There is very little doubt that we will get there. Just a matter of when.

Feel free to recline or walk about the cabin. We will be at 1565 soon enough. Then there should be connecting flights to 1600 and beyond.

Bull & Bear of the Day

Zacks Rank #1 Strong Buy

O'Reilly (ORLY)

This time last year ORLY was an $80 stock with a p/e of 18, shares rose 30% soon after. Today we have a similar valuation with just as good an outlook as last year... ORLY might be ready for another run.


Zacks Rank #5 Strong Sell

Standard Parking (STAN)

While it might not be getting any cheaper to park your car, this massive parking and valet company is still struggling to maintain earnings growth.
