6-18-14: End of Day Report - Largest Stock Moves, New 52 Wk. Highs/Lows, Unusual Option Volume

Share on StockTwits

While the market "fear" indicator reads "no problems here," I'm afraid. I'm afraid that a stock like NEWL has become a part of the daily discussion on investing on StockTwits. I'm afraid for the retail investor. I'm afraid for myself.

The small cap biotech realm has recovered and rallied off of lows. These hyper volatile, hyper sensitive to news and hyper momentum companies (stocks) are rip-roaring again; vastly outperforming any other major market average in the United States.

Stock prices are re-inflating...everywhere. PLUG is "back in the news." A bad word about FCEL is sacrilege.

A market contraction will be abrupt. Buyers today will be less willing to sell "early" and are likely unable to lose what they have just invested.

Are we in a bubble?... I do think so... and I don't think this will end well.
