Crispin Odey’s European long-short equity fund deepened its losses for the year, plummeting about 20.5 percent in 2017, according to a performance document seen by Bloomberg News.

The Odey European fund, which is overseen by the hedge-fund manager himself in London, fell 8.2 percent in its Euro share class in December, the document shows. This follows the firm’s 49.5 percent slump in 2016, its worst annual decline since it started trading in 1992.

A spokesman for London-based Odey Asset Management LLP did not reply to phone calls and emails requesting comment.

Odey is known for his bearish bets and criticisms of central bank policies. Last summer, he was short on metal stocks in anticipation of slowing economic growth in China and also maintained that the credit cycle, fueled by loose monetary policy, had peaked.

Below is a summary of returns for Odey and other firms:

Closed-end fund (CEF) investors are going crazy again. This time, theyre grossly overpaying.

Today well discuss five incredibly popular funds that are not likely to become more celebrated, and should be sold immediately.

Yes, first-level income hounds can be as greedy as they are fearful. In January 2016, they wanted nothing to do with CEFs. Exactly when many funds were about to embark on an 18-month tear!

Yet today, theyre willing to pay $1.49 for just $1 in assets. This is a recipe to lose money. Or at best, see your portfolio trade sideways.

This Discount/Premium as Margin of Safety (or Lack Thereof)

CEFs, unlike their mutual fund cousins, have fixed share counts. This makes their prices subject to the animal spirit whims of the market for better or for worse.

Well, the six biggest stock weightings in the DJIA are: Goldman Sachs (GS), 3M (MMM), International Business Machines (IBM), UnitedHealth Group (UNH), and Boeing (BA). What you will notice looking at a day like yesterday is that tech led the way sector wise. If the Dow is going to outperform, we need mega caps to outperform. We need those six stocks to outperform. So we need a day where financials and industrials outperform to get there. Given the trends in sector leadership, that is bound to happen…We are one Trump tweet talking about how yuuuuuuge Goldman Sachs is away from 20k.

    For Green Brick Partners, we’re mainly feeding off of the hammer-shaped reversal bar from last week. That long-tailed low only had to kiss the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.45 to kick-start a reversal, and we’ve seen some nice bullish follow-through so far. Ideally we’d like to see a move above the February ceiling around $9.90, but we fear waiting that long could leave us chasing it higher.

    The price of Bitcoin surged more than 17% to top $8,000 in a rapid move that surprised many investors this morning. The sudden rally appears to be the result of a short squeeze, according to CNBC contributor Brian Kelly. This means that investors who had been betting on a decline in the price of the world’s largest cryptocurrency had been forced to jump back and buy the currency again. A lot of people have been betting on a decline in the price of Bitcoin heading toward the April 17 tax deadline. The expectation is that many people will need to sell their Bitcoin in order to raise cash to meet tax obligations. Here’s our latest daily insight on why the Bitcoin bear market may end very soon.
    Markets gains have been capped by concerns about the latest news out of the Federal Reserve. On Wednesday, minutes from the Fed’s most recent meeting indicated that policy makers are prepared to raise interest rates several more times in the coming months in order to stave off concerns about inflation.

Top 5 Bank Stocks To Watch For 2018: Suzuki Motor Corporation (SZKMY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By SEEKINGALPHA.COM]

    Elon has plans for a Gigafactory 3 somewhere in the US unlike the Gigafactory in Europe. If Tesla can get just two Gigafactories built, it will have the batteries at least to produce vehicles at about the same scale as Suzuki (OTCPK:SZKMY) (Suzuki made about 3mm autos in 2015). In fact, Tesla hopes to have the Gigafactory running flat out by 2020, supplying 3X the number of batteries it needs unless it can ramp production into 2020 further. These batteries will be used on the Tesla Power Walls and other power containment devices it has in its pipeline, but it sure seems that Tesla can ramp its auto production past the 500k units per year in 2019 and 2020. At the very least, it will likely have the batteries to do so.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 210.79 points, or 1.17%, to 17830.76. The S&P 500 Index fell 19.34 points, or 0.92%, to 2075.81. The Nasdaq slid 57.85 points, or 1.19%, to 4805.29.

Blue chips were dragged down by Apple(AAPL): Just days after its disappointing earnings, billionaire Carl Icahn said he no longer has a stake in the stock.

From a data standpoint, First quarter gross domestic product grew 0.5%, below economists expectations, overshadowing an upbeat jobs report that saw unemployment fall to a four-decade low.

Stifels Lindsey Piegza writes that this could push out any interest rate hikes:

From a policy standpoint, should the U.S. economy post meaningful improvement between now and June, assuming the Feds concerns surrounding international risks are not reignited, policy makers appear well positioned to announce the second rate hike in less than two months time. Of course, following this mornings disappointing GDP report, its difficult to imagine a marked improvement in the economy over the next two months. More likely, the combination of stagnant economic conditions, a still-restrained consumer, and ongoing concerns regarding risks of contagion from developments abroad whether directly identified in the statement or not will make it increasingly difficult for the Fed to raise rates once in the remaining nine months of 2016, if at all.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Own Right Now: Green Brick Partners, Inc.(GRBK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Jim Robertson]

    On Monday, our Under the Radar Moversnewsletter suggestedgoing long on small cap homebuilder stockGreen Brick Partners (NASDAQ: GRBK):

    For Green Brick Partners, we’re mainly feeding off of the hammer-shaped reversal bar from last week. That long-tailed low only had to kiss the 200-day moving average line (green) at $8.45 to kick-start a reversal, and we’ve seen some nice bullish follow-through so far. Ideally we’d like to see a move above the February ceiling around $9.90, but we fear waiting that long could leave us chasing it higher. See, what you can’t see on the chart (because it’s further back) is that GRBK is no stranger to multi-point runups. Based on its past runs, Green Brick Partners could be in the high teens before you even know it.

stock market quotes

In 1993, I learned two of the most powerful investing lessons of my life…   I was primarily trading emerging market stocks at the time. The big story was China.   I was a broker specializing in foreign stocks, and my phone was ringing nonstop. Everyone wanted to buy Hong Kong stocks.   That was a thrilling time for me… I had never made so much money before in such a short period in my life!   I learned two lifelong lessons then… And today, we have a new opportunity to put those lessons to work.   Let me explain…   The first lesson I learned was this: When emerging markets are hot, you simply HAVE to be on board.   In 1993, I made more money – in less time – than I ever had before.   The main Hong Kong stock index went up 30% that December alone. That was the entire index – not just one stock! And many individual stocks did much better.

stock market quotes: ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc.(ZLTQ)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By James E. Brumley]

    This week, Botox maker Allergan plc (NYSE:AGN) shelled out $2.5 billion for body-sculpting outfit Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc (NASDAQ:ZLTQ). The pairing is a nice opportunity for both organizations to cross-sell to one another’s customers. Allergan’s Botox customers seeking a more youthful face will also likely want the better body Zeltiq Aesthetics provides, and Zeltiq Aesthetics’ customers are natural candidates for Botox injections that Allergan facilitates.

    The acquisition, though, is just a microcosm of a bigger trend that’s still picking up steam. That trend is, as the industry’s capabilities to restore youth, slim waists, whiten teeth, improve skin, and nip and tuck here and there improve with science, demand for these increasingly effective ‘tweaks’ is soaring. Names like the aforementioned Allergan, Cynosure, Inc. (NASDAQ:CYNO), Zeltiq Aesthetics and Align Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:ALGN) are all driving impressive growth. And, they’re all looking to expand their footprint in front of the rising tide.

    Not every name riding this growth wave is going to be a large cap stock or a household name though. There’s a small cap stock called RepliCel Life Sciences (OTCMKTS:REPCF, CVE:RP) that could soon be turning a lot of heads not just of investors, but of potential suitors.

    In simplest terms, RepliCel Life Sciences has two key sciences that serve as the foundation for three therapies and one medical device.

    The first of the two biological premises is based on the company’s non-bulbar dermal sheath fibroblast platform, and currently includes treatments for chronic tendinosis and skin aging. The second is the company’s dermal sheath cup (DSC) cell platform for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness).

    The three marketable products those two sciences are driving are RCT-01 for tendon repair, RCS-01 for skin rejuvenation, and RCH-01 for hair regeneration. The device is a dermal injector – currently categorized as R
