As anticipated from weeks ago, expect continued whipsaw in the market into next week. These periods occur throughout the year and make it difficult for anybody to make money. However, it is nearly finished and we have several trades very close to being triggered. Around mid-month, a strong bull trend is expected into the July FOMC meeting on the 28/29th. The rally should continue into early August at a minimum, with possible extension into the political conventions in late August. Near term a pullback into July 2/6th is possible but the powers that be seem hellbent on keeping this market supported. Weakness may be answered with buying from the plunge protection team. Certainly not a market you dare short. There is a big disconnect between Main Street and Wall Street that we do not expect to end anytime soon.
We issued a late update last night on Denny's secondary offering of 8 million shares by Wells Fargo. Proceeds from the raise will be used to help franchisees and to support Denny’s stock price in the open market. Major banks don’t buy stock in a deal like this unless they are confident there is an effective exit strategy in place for them. Expect a flurry of good news and for the share price to start marching upward into month end. A quick spike down to $8.50 is possible over the next 2 days on anticipated market volatility. The deal closes on Monday July 6th, so expect the syndicate to support share price. The large banks that purchased the $72 million dollars paid $9.15 per share and they expect profit in the weeks and months ahead. The sell-off in March had DENN at $5 per share. A great value play here in this price range. Expect us to issue a double down alert the next 2 days. We almost executed it today but anticipate possible weakness Thursday as some retail sells into the weekend. We hope their pain can be our gain.
Buyers are emerging on every dip in BLMN. We will all be happy the second half of July. We expect strong corporate developments very soon.
We have two short term trades in NUGT and DUST lined up for July, working both sides of the gold miners. The price swings will be extreme this month.
Energy needs to pick a direction in order for us to make money. Until a top or bottom forms we will not touch oil. $34-$44 is our expected range on a medium term outlook.
We know some people have travel plans coming for the long weekend in the US. Keep a close eye on your phone for our alerts as they may trigger Thursday and or Monday.
