Shocking Guidance

Please click here for a chart of Netflix (NFLX).

Note the following:

  • The Morning Capsule is about the big picture and not individual stocks. The chart of  is being used to illustrate the larger point that is important to your portfolios.
  •  has been the strongest momo stock.  The chart shows that the stock has dropped 64% in about five months.
  • The chart shows that the momo crowd was aggressively buying the stock and call options ahead of earnings. There were plenty of signs that earnings might be bad, but the momo crowd ignored them.  The consistent characteristic of the momo crowd is that they only focus on the potential reward and ignore the risks.  
  • The chart shows very heavy volume yesterday before the earnings as the momo crowd piled into Netflix stock going into the risk event of earnings. In contrast, smart money was selling yesterday to lighten their positions ahead of earnings.  
  • The anecdotal evidence is that some momo portfolios have been 25% – 75% in Netflix stock.
  • The chart shows that after earnings Netflix is gapping down 27%.
  • Netflix guidance was shocking.
    • Netflix lost 200K subscribers during Q1.
    • Netflix guides a loss of 2M subscribers in Q2.
  • Netflix has been a very expensive stock, so there is no valuation support.
  • FAANG stocks have been very popular.  The “N” in FAANG is Netflix. The other stocks are FB, AMZN, AAPL, and GOOG.   is also grouped with FAANG stocks.
  • Here are the key points.
    • When momo stocks started falling, the momo crowd started buying more  as they thought it was safe. Most analysts had buy ratings.
    • The Arora Report did not fall for the bullishness in NFLX, and it was not in the Model Portfolio. The Arora Report has repeatedly given signals to short sell the stock for short term trades.
    • Right now, investors are hiding in AAPL, AMZN, and  because they deem them to be safe, just like they deemed  to be safe five months ago.
  • This underscores the importance of diversification.
  • We advocate for diversification by strategies in addition to sectors.  The Arora Report uses over 50 different strategies as appropriate.
  • As an actionable item, review your portfolio and see if you are overly concentrated in some stocks such as AAPL. Take a look at the risk reward matrix in the Model Portfolio.
    •  is in the Model Portfolio, but there are three risks that the market is not taking into account.
      •  does big business in China.  If the relationship between China and the United States deteriorates,  may become a target of the Chinese government. On the positive side,  has skillfully managed its relationship with the Chinese government.
      •  has become bigger than is prudent in many institutional portfolios. If something goes wrong, everyone would try to rush out of a small door.
      • Many individual investors, on purpose, have lately been selling other stocks to buy more AAPL. Such investors typically have 50% – 100% of their portfolio in AAPL.
      • To be absolutely clear, we have a higher target for  and  is in the Core Model Portfolio. The foregoing is meant to bring to your attention prudent portfolio construction practices.

Protection Bands And What To Do Now?

It is important for investors to look ahead and not in the rearview mirror.

Consider continuing to hold existing positions. Based on individual risk preference, consider holding 🔒 in cash or treasury bills or allocated to short-term tactical trades; and short to medium-term hedges of 🔒, and short term hedges of 🔒. This is a good way to protect yourself and participate in the upside at the same time.

You can determine your protection bands by adding cash to hedges.  The high band of the protection is appropriate for those who are older or conservative. The low band of the protection is appropriate for those who are younger or aggressive.  If you do not hedge, the total cash level should be more than stated above but significantly less than cash plus hedges.

It is worth reminding that you cannot take advantage of new upcoming opportunities if you are not holding enough cash.  When adjusting hedge levels, consider adjusting partial stop quantities for stock positions (non ETF); consider using wider stops on remaining quantities and also allowing more room for high beta stocks.  High beta stocks are the ones that move more than the market.
