The usual suspects of Materials, Industrials, Financials and Energy continue to lead this unstable market both up and down. Technology has been less volatile, and in fact it has been tracking closely with Healthcare lately. These two also happen to rank the highest this week in Sabrient’s SectorCast ETF rankings.

david trainerMost of my research and publishing tends to focus on companies manipulating accounting rules to make their reported earnings look better than the real economic cash flows of their business.

It is unfortunately rare that I find a company whose economic earnings are outpacing the reported accounting results and whose stock is cheap.

ETF Periscope: Benny and the Greeks

“Why don't they make the whole plane out of that black box stuff.“  --Steven Wright

Ben Bernanke struck out swinging.

Next up: the European Union’s heavy hitters. How they handle the curve ball will go a long way toward establishing the market’s direction for the upcoming week and, most likely, for the remainder of the year.

I'm Daniel Sckolnik, the author of ETF Periscope, a weekly market analysis and commentary on the best ETFs for the current market. I work with Sabrient as an ETF expert and analyst, and I want to teach YOU exactly how you can use ETFs to successfully trade and invest in today’s extreme, volatile markets.

ETF Periscope: Greece is Still the Word

“Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.”  -- Thomas Jefferson

Darling you gotta let me know
Should I stay or should I go?
If you say that you are mine
I’ll be here till the end of time
So you gotta let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

Always tease, tease, tease
You’re happy when I’m on my knees
One day is fine, the next is black
So if you want me off your back
Well come on and let me know
Should I stay or should I go?

Investors dumped equities late last week ahead of the weekend – largely due to the tenuous situation with Greece’s debt and the associated fall in the euro (and a commensurate rise in the dollar). But I also think there was a flight-to-safety ahead of the 9/11 anniversary, especially among Wall Street traders given the terror threats and heavy security in NYC.

david trainerOf course not.

The issue is not what directors ignore. You cannot ignore something about which you are unaware.

The real issue is that most directors and investors are simply unaware of the many one-time items because they are buried deep in the annals of footnotes in annual reports or 10-K filings.

ETF Periscope: Wall Street Not Ready to Kick the Volatility Habit Any Time Soon

“When written in Chinese, the word "crisis" is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.”  --  John F. Kennedy

Is a September swoon in the cards? It all depends on how Wall Street plays its next hand, which just may have one too many jokers in it.

That’s great
It starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes an aeroplane
Lenny Bruce is not afraid, eye of a hurricane
Listen to yourself churn, world serves its own needs
Regardless of your own needs

Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt no, strength no
Ladder structure, clatter with fear of height, down height
Wire in a fire, representing seven games
In a government for hire and a combat site
