Lighten some “loads’, I’m on the lookout for a correction in September

Pre-open indications: SELLs into Strength: 3; SELL: 2; Maintain SELL: 1

If you’re looking for sector intel, ideas and facts or Insight in a volatile climate, RMi defines the extenuating factors of share pricing.

Never leave an investor uninformed!

Dow futures are UP +0.29% (+104 points), S&P futures are UP +0.33% ( +15 point) and NASDAQ futures are UP +0.20% (+32 points)


U.S. stock futures were higher in early morning trading on Wednesday,

European stocks advanced after euro zone inflation data on Tuesday rattled market sentiment,

Asia-Pacific stocks were mostly higher, despite a private survey showing shrinking Chinese factory activity in August.


Data Docket: The ADP National Employment report will be released at 8:15 a.m. ET and is expected to show the addition of 600,000 private sector jobs in August.



The major averages all finished higher for the month of August, the S&P 500 rose +2.9%, the Nasdaq gained about +4% and while the Dow lagged only +1.2%.

September is historically the worst month of the year for stocks,” said LPL Financial Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “Even last year, in the face of a huge rally off the March 2020 lows, we saw a nearly 10% correction in the middle of September.”

Q2/21 Earnings releases …  … to date:


Companies in my headlights – It’s your decision; I provide an idea and context:

The Biostage (BSTG) Chronicles - Maintaining Sell – notice how the shares trade with the “pump/promote”?

Biostage (BSTG) closed down -$0.44 to $3.36 with 11,564 shares traded after Monday’s +$0.75 to $3.80 with 25,607 shares traded after Friday’s +$0.45 to $3.05 with 19,982 share traded, Thursday’s +$0.39 with 3,137 shares traded, Wednesday’s +$0.16 with 18,472 shares traded and last Tuesday’s +$0.28 with 10,590 shares traded and the previous Monday’s +$0.68 to $1.89 with 38,354 shares traded.

Question#1: Being able to trade a stock doesn't mean it is worth the share price; an equity that has WHAT is BSTG’s value proposition, after all the share price pumping – NO clinical trial?

Questiob#2: WHAT is the end game of “pumping” the share price as the float is MINIMAL compared to the ever-OUTSTANDING shares?  WHERE is the SEC?

MINORITY PUBLIC shareholders are waiting for the specific time, watching and weighing responses to MAINTAIN their RIGHTS.
