@theMarket: A Churn at the Top
By Bill Schmick,
04:39PM / Friday, June 04, 2021
It was a sleepy week in the markets for the major averages. Stocks flirted with the old highs, only to fall back by the end of the week. Energy and a few meme stocks occupied most of the attention.   Crude oil spiked higher, nearing almost $70 a barrel (bbl.), pulling energy stocks along with it. Energy traders were heartened by the latest OPEC meeting. The cartel expects demand to outstrip supply by more than a million barrels a day for the foreseeable future. As a result, the members intend to gradually increase production as the global economy gathers steam. Most analysts expect oil to breach $70/bbl. before taking a break.   Certain stocks such as AMC and GameStop, which have

The Retired Investor: The Movies Return
By Bill Schmick,
04:47PM / Thursday, June 03, 2021
The Memorial Day weekend launched the unofficial beginning of the summer season. Movie theater owners are holding their breath in hopes that consumers, once vaccinated, may start to return to the cinema. Is it a false hope?   Much has been written about the demise of the movie theater, even before the world was ravaged by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
