Thursday, July 12, 2018: Nice Rally! ISRG, SHOP, GOOG, AMZN Surge!

The Markets Kicked Arse!

DOW +224.44—-NASDAQ +107.30—-SP500 +24.27—-NYSE +79.87

Portfolio Leaders: ISRG, SHOP, GOOG, AMZN
Portfolio Laggards: BGS, NFLX, WWE

A very nice rally today!

Some standouts were Amazon, Intuitive Surgical, Google (Alphabet) and Shopify!

There were things that were negative about Trump’s visit to the NATO Summit, the UK and the ongoing trade disputes (let’s not call them wars just yet), but overall the markets rallied strong anyway.

Should Trump take credit for this surge in the stock market?

He shouldn’t. He wasn’t around and he’s really the one causing all the difficulties in the stock market with his trade threats and slamming of various people and entities.

For example, Amazon surged all on its own, and Trump is a sharp critic of Jeff Bezos and Amazon.

Things happen on their own without Trump, like Kylie Jenner being close to becoming the youngest self-made billionaire in history because of her cosmetics and fashion line made available online via Shopify!
