Cash is KING right now and in the near future. This run up is full of hot air.

That's the problem I'm having with this, everybody is saying that

Oh I believe it too.. BUT..  you gotta strike while it's hot.  There will be a run up and then just cash out!

Yup, I keep hearing the same thing from everyone I know and selling VIX puts has been futile at best.  This is definitely a wall of worry stealth trump train rally.  haha

In general, stocks are at an all time high today.  Do you TI'ers see this continuing for a while or a slow down?  If it's a slowdown, are any equity sectors safe?  I personally think bank stocks are relatively safe and utilities (with their higher dividends) might be a decent hedge. 

I say this every week, then the next week I say the same thing.  Guess I'll keep.riding the wave, shorts are getting crushed.

I have WAY too much $$ in bank stocks...I'm just being hesitant to pull some out.  Maybe the market keeps going up until Trump gets impeached!

Sell covered calls maybe?

I'm going to let it ride!  Morgan Stanley just put a $30 price target on BAC. 

They also put a $154 target on AAPL. 
Thanks in advance for the 'thanks'!!

Starting a new thread for stock picks.

Name off some hot ones to help TI members achieve their dreams. Currently I like financial stocks like BAC but that's slow moving. Please contribute.

It's been a month since this thread started and these bank stocks are still on fire.  BAC is up almost 11% since Feb 1. 
Thanks in advance for the 'thanks'!!

I don't think you can get any stock to short...the offering hasn't settled yet so I don't know where you borrow it from.  Also, I don't think there are any options yet.

no option chain from what i can tell, it'd be horrible if you short it but can't buy it to close the position as there are no buyers and the stock keeps on going up
