In this episode, Matt, Tim and Mark break down the bullish stock thesis currently prevalent in the market. We take 6 specific themes that the bulls are touting right now and analyze them one at a time based on their validity.
1. The worst of Covid-19 economic impact is behind us
2. There is a ton of cash on the sidelines
3. Leadership in Quality and Growth stocks will hold the market up
4. An expectation of more positive news on Covid-19 therapeutic treatments
5. The willingness to look past earnings in 2020 towards 2021
6. The Fed put will boost liquidity and keep a floor to stock prices
As a team, we analyze these one at a time and rate their validity between 1-100. Listen in for our insights, critique and analysis of these themes.
Before the feature, we analyze the markets during our market skyline. One of the biggest stories has revolved around Oil, short term volatility and long term potential if the supply/demand dynamic can fix itself. There is a good debate during this section, that we are sure you'll enjoy.
Lastly, we play a game of Set the Odds on topics ranging from the best NFL QB drafted this year to the likelihood that Joe Biden won't be the Democratic nominee on the presidential ballot. It's a fun section, and one where Tim gets to play the judge between Mark and Matt. It's a fun section that we hope you laugh a few times with us through it.

In this episode, we examine the recent market conditions across stocks, commodities and currencies. Stocks have rallied the last few weeks on the backdrop of Government Stimulus, Federal Reserve QE programs and general optimism. But, Oil has been volatile and in the May contract went negative pricing in the futures market. Are we in a market recovering, on one cratering just waiting to go lower? Listen in as we discuss all of the themes across financial markets.
During our feature, we discuss the recent volatility in Oil and the contango that has developed in the futures market. In the first time in the history of oil, the WTI contract traded for negative prices, moving all the way to -$40 per barrel on the May contract. What does it mean moving forward? Well, we don't know, but we're willing to dive in and give the best analysis we can in these crazy times. Listen in.
Lastly, we play a game of buy or sell during a segment where coach Mark pitches companies to the coaches and asks 'would you buy at a deep discount?' We have some fun making some guesses about future price action during this segment.
