AAP details

Following the the (AAP) is still interesting. The strong downtrend pivoted at $110. Now, after Q1 reports we see AAP relatively strong fundamentally, so in a good macro environment, the growth is very likely.


The recent Bank Runs still fuels market sentiments despite the situation seem to be under control at the moment. This sector is extremly risky right now. However risks are priced in and if you’re looking for risk rewards watch those:

  • KRE
  • KBE
  • WAL
  • FRC
  • ZION
  • SCHW

By the way same whe mentioned last time + AIG, MET and GNW. All has grown since then. But Genworth Financial Inc GNW made 22%! since then (2 weeks!). Huge risk reward.

Monetary stats

Macro outlook

We anticipate that the labor market will reveal some weaknesses, which could have a dampening effect on household spending and the broader economy. Recent data on jobless claims suggests that employment conditions are healthy, yet simultaneously showing signs of softening. The uptick in initial jobless claims indicates the emergence of layoffs and heightened uncertainty among employers, while the decrease in continuing claims is a positive sign.. The fact that continuing claims are up over 10% from last year suggests that finding new employment is gradually becoming more challenging.
