Dating organ bristol

The Malcolm X team are ready to spread the word about organ donation - Beverly Brown-Salmon, left, Jagun Akinshegun and Primrose Granville, right (Image: jon Kent/Bristol Live) The organ is valued at more than $700,000, but The Piedmont Theatre Organ Society leases it to Paramount Bristol for the sum of $1 per year. “Miss Marlene,” as the organ is affectionately named, was originally in the Paramount Theatre in Charlottesville, Virginia. They had one week to dismantle the organ and move it to Bristol. The organ has a long and interesting history. It is based on an organ provided by W.G. Vowles of Bristol in 1888, which itself incorporated 10 ranks from the previous John Smith organ of 1830. The organ was completely rebuilt by J.W. Walker & Sons Ltd in 1962, and further altered by Percy Daniel & Co Ltd in 1978. Bristol's Colston Hall is lucky enough to house a superb Harrison & Harrison organ, unchanged in specification since 1900 and in possession of some exquisite knobs and pipes. Take a much closer look with these superb pictures. It’s no mere organ. Dating from about 1926, it’s one of only about 25 such instruments in the world. If You Go.

(I've never attempted writing a story, I usually write non fiction stuff and poetry so I have no idea if this is any good at all or not of what I'm doing. Please give me some tips and advice
I know the idea of a doctor giving someone 7 days to live for HIV is unrealistic, but I'm still figuring out how to set up the 7 days to live thing, doesn't necessarily have to be HIV, but if anyone has any suggestions please let me know)

David sat in discomfort in an even more uncomfortable chair in a doctor's office in the centre of Bristol. Waiting with much tripidation for the results of his blood test he had taken 5 days prior:
...
The mattress absorbed Davis's sweat like a sponge as he jerked and turned his body in an unconscious attempt to find comfort, until his discomfort he desperately tried to alleviate, woke him from slumber. He awoke to a paradoxically dull yet piercing pain radiating from the centre of his mind outwards. This along with the chills he felt, would for most people indicate the symptoms of a fever. But for David there was another possibility which he assumed to be the more likely one as it is an illness that afflicts him this way almost every morning. Luckily for him he had prepared for this inevitability by saving a remedy for that morning, this being lucky as he has difficulty in finding the self-control to save this medicine from the previous night, without using it all before bed. With confidence in shortly curing his unpleasant symptoms, he opens an antique wooden box on his bedside table and pulls out a black felt lined sunglasses case. He opens it and beings preparation, with a daily ritual that sparks joyous anticipation and a sense of impending relief. He places a syringe and needle on the table along with a rusty burnt spoon and a bundle of foil and clingfilm that encased medicine. He continues to eagerly prepare his shot of heroin with a perfect familiarity with which he could literally do with his eyes closed. Upon preparation, he lowers his underwear to allow access to the veins in his groin. Without hesitation, he pierces the skin with the needle and introduces that coagulated dark medication processed from a poppy plant into his body. After ensuring every last drop of heroin is mixed in with his blood being pumped through his circulation, he slides the needle out from his flesh, and sits back to let relief take over. He is however, met with a painful disappointment not soon after, as his symptoms do not fade much at all. He can feel the heroin taking effect, but his fever, headache and discomfort are still present. This is no withdrawal, he thinks. This is a separate sickness he feels.
David attempts to nurse himself with paracetamol, ibuprofen and boiling water with lemon, to little success. As the day progresses and hours pass, his symptoms get progressively worse. He reluctantly decides a visit to a doctor is warranted, and calls up the local surgery to book an appointment. He is offered one for an hour later, accepts, and with much exhaustion and pain gets ready to leave his flat. The local surgery was not far away luckily but he gave himself some extra time as his movements were slow and agility stiff and tedious. As it was a Sunday, he still dedicated himself to his weekly ritual of purchasing a lottery ticket from his local cornershop. 15 minutes later he arrives at the surgery for his appointment, and is pleasantly surprised to be called in 5 minutes early, this being a surprise as in his previous experiences being there, is called in on average 25 minutes late from his appointments booked time. He walks into the doctors office, and after being invited to sit down, is asked "what seems to be the problem" by a doctor eyeing David's medical notes up and down while he spoke.
"I feel like absolute shit", David says miserably, knowing the unhelpfullness of this statement. This was David's way of getting the doctors full attention he believeled he deserves. He knew that the doctor knew his problems with drugs, and also knew the doctor assumed David's visit was the usual; to try and convince a prescription of valium from the doctor for some feigned medical complaint, and was in some petty way happy to prove him otherwise.
"Right. Could you be more specific?" The doctor said with a hint of sarcasm. "I woke up this morning with an agonising headache, muscle aches, chills and just general fluish symptoms, but worse, like flu on steroids". Explained David. "Flu on steroids. Right. Well let's have a look" the doctor proceeded to conduct typical observations that one would to diagnose the common cold. David's temperature readings yielded alarming results which indicated more than a standard common cold. The doctor also discovered swelling in David's lymph nodes, and this with the other observations made by the doctor led him to arrange a blood test for David, as he was certain this was not just your typical flu. David's blood tests were arranged for a few hours later. Upon learning of the need to have his blood tested, David was overcome with tripidation and anxiety for what that meant. And this feeling with his poor feeling of health made the wait for the tests even more stressful and troublesome. David decided not to go home while he waited and instead opted to sit by the lake and surround himself with nature and people having a pleasant time in eacothers company.
When the time to have his blood tested did finally arrive, he was invited back into the doctors office to start the procedure. Understandably there was no worry of anxiety from David in relation to having an injection, rather it was the ruling out of heroin withdrawal and a common cold that left the true nature of his health a mystery. His blood was drawn from his body and contained in plastic vials for analysis. For the reveal of this mystery David would have to wait a further 5 days for the results. In the meantime, David texted his landlord, asking him for £10 to top up the electricity in his flat, despite having electricity still remaining. He would simply photoshop an old receipt to show that day's date and value. He would of course spend the £10 sent to him on heroin. This was one of many schemes and ways of deception he would use to get his fix, ways he has learnt over years of experience being an addict. This would at the very least keep him busy and his mind off the impending results of his blood test.
...
The appointment booked for David's test results were early on a Monday morning at 9:45am. However David had no troubles being up in time, as his withdrawals woke him up at 6am that morning. Unfortunately he had not managed to save any heroin to remedy this unpleasantness from the evening prior. So this made the anticipation of his results even more painful.
The door to the office in which David sat was suddenly opened and the doctor which David had seen 5 days before walked in. David instantly looked up to attempt to gauge the doctors facial expression to get an advanced estimate of what he had to say. However the doctors face displayed no obvious emotion, and rested at a professionally uninfluenced and unbiased base expression. The doctor sat down opposite David and began to speak; "I'm sorry to tell you..." David's heart sank *... that you are HIV positive". David was dumbfounded. And this to him sounded almost absurd, to the point he considered with some quickly disregarded hope that it was some sick joke. Seeing the doctors demeanor remain professional and serious this last resort hopeful thought was quickly crushed. David then realised he had been sitting there with an astonished expression for an uncomfortably long time, then cleared his throat to respond. "I... don't...are you sure?" The uselessness of this question was not lost on David but he had no other idea of what to say. "Yes. I'm afraid so, we ran multiple tests which all resulted in the same. The HIV is particularly aggressive, and I'm sorry to inform you we estimate you have 7 says before your organs ultimately shut down, resulting in the cessation of your heart." The doctor said solomly. "Wait, so you're telling me I have a week to live?" David exclaimed. "Essentially, yes. We have various medications that can keep you comfortable, but it is unlikely you will live longer than that." The doctor explained as David sat in disbelief. The doctor continued; "We can refer you to a fantastic hospice which you can be admitted to today where you will be cared for and looked after, or you are free to go home and if you decide to be admitted later on that can be arranged easily. We will prescribe you medication to ease your symptoms and keep you comfortable. It is likely your heroin use and use of needles is the source of contamination, but HIV can be transmitted in many ways so it's difficult to say with certainty." David sat forward and put his head in his hands and mumbled "just give me the medication and I want to go home". The doctor gently nodded his head and let out a soft "I'm sorry." And then reached to his desk to hand David the medication. David stood up and walked out without another word.

Roy had an interest in teenage girls well into his 30s and there are allegations of impropriety from those below the age of consent such as Wendy Miller, who stated that Moore asked her on dates while she was working at Gadsden Mall as a Santa's helper. Moore first asked her out when she was 14 years old. Her mother would not allow them to date because of Moore's age.
Gloria Allred, said she had received unwanted attention from Moore when she was 15 years old, and said that—in December 1977 or January 1978[18]—when she was 16, Moore sexually assaulted her. Nelson said that she accepted a ride from Moore after she finished work because she "trusted him because he was the District Attorney".[19] "Instead of driving to the street, he stopped the car, he parked his car in between the dumpster and the back of the restaurant, where there were no lights."[20] Then "Mr. Moore reached over and began groping me and put his hand on my breast. I tried to get out and he reached over and locked (the door) and I yelled and told him to stop," Nelson said. She said Moore then put his hand on her neck and tried to force her head down on his crotch.[21] According to Nelson, he eventually gave up and told her, "You're just a child, I'm the district attorney; if you tell anyone about this no one will ever believe you."

Police who seized his phone as part of that investigation discovered evidence that he had groomed underage boys online. A court heard that he set up two fake Facebook profiles and contacted the boys, aged 13 and 14, between February 2016 and January 2017. Communicating via the Facebook messenger app, the former British National Party youth wing leader boasted to the youngsters that he was rich, could give them jobs and offered one of them £300 to spend the night with him. He also requested intimate photographs of the pair before one of the boys reported the messages to his tutor and the police were contacted, a jury was told.

2020.08.01 17:57 bigbear0083 Wall Street Week Ahead for the trading week beginning August 3rd, 2020

Good Saturday morning to all of you here on smallstreetbets. I hope everyone on this sub made out pretty nicely in the market this past week, and is ready for the new trading month ahead.
Here is everything you need to know to get you ready for the trading week beginning August 3rd, 2020.

Earnings and fiscal debate could be catalysts for stocks in the week ahead - (Source)

The market could lose some of its exuberance in the week ahead as the calendar turns to August, and investors await Friday’s July employment report and keep their eyes on Washington.
The focus will also be squarely on politicians, as Congress struggles to find a middle ground on a new fiscal spending package and decide the fate of the $600 a week unemployment supplement that was set to expire July 31. Former vice president Joe Biden is also expected to name his running mate in the coming week.
The jobs data will be crucial, particularly since the number of people filing for unemployment benefits has been edging higher, instead of falling back, as expected. According to Refinitiv, about 1.36 million new jobs are expected, well below the 4.8 million added in June, and the unemployment rate is expected to fall to 10.7% from 11.1%.
Trading around the report could be volatile, since some economists expect more than 2 million jobs were added, and some even see flat or negative payrolls.
Stocks have done well for the month of July, with the S&P 500 finishing at 3,271, a gain of 5.5%. The Nasdaq has performed the best, rising 6.8% for the month to 10,745, after a 3.7% gain for the past week.
“August has traditionally been a challenging month for investors,” said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA. The market is entering what historically has been the worst two months for stocks.
According to Stovall, the S&P 500 has been higher in August 53% of the time, and its average move is a gain of just 0.01%, going back to World War II. September is worse, down 0.51% on average, and up just 48% of the time.
In presidential election years, however the odds for August gains are better, as it rose 63% of the time and 73%, when the incumbent is up for re-election.
There are also about 120 S&P 500 companies reporting earnings, but the big earnings show for markets was this past week when four of the five biggest tech giants all reported Thursday afternoon. Three of those stocks — Apple, Amazon and Facebook — surged, helping Nasdaq outperform Friday with a more than 1.5% gain.

Earnings scorecard

“We’re only a month into the reporting period, and things are going to become less and less important from an earnings perspective,” said Stovall. “I think investors are sort of disappointed in that the bar was set so low for second quarter earnings that expectations were that we were going to see a lot of companies beat, which we have. But we were also going to see a gradual uplift of earnings expectations for forward quarters. We’re not seeing that.”
Eighty-two percent of the companies reporting so far have beaten estimates, well above the average 65%, according to Refinitiv. The earnings decline is now looking closer to 33% from an initial 40%, and tech, which has been leading the market is one of the best performers. Profits for the sector now look to be up 1.4%, according to I/B/E/S data from Refinitiv.
Because the tech names have contributed so much to market gains, their earnings were an important test for the market, and they didn’t disappoint. But they didn’t manage to pull up the whole market very far on Friday.
Among the names reporting in the coming week are a diverse group, including Disney, ViacomCBS, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Berkshire Hathaway, AIG, Clorox, and Wayfair, to name a few.

Politics now in play

“The earnings story is over. My call had been once we had gotten through the earnings season, we would be more vulnerable to a sustainable pullback,” said Barry Knapp, Ironside Macroeconomics managing partner and director of research. “Obviously, it’s volatility season, but it’s also an election year. ... We’re more vulnerable to that next week and earnings won’t hold us up.”
Knapp said if President Donald Trump and Republicans do not begin to perform better in the polls by Labor Day, the market is likely to focus on what a Democratic win would mean for taxes and regulation. That could be a negative for stocks.
“If he hasn’t made headway by then, it’s likely he’s done.That’s about the point when things become pretty set in stone. The market will presume that’s the case,” Knapp said.
The politics of the stimulus package could also reverberate through markets, until it looks like the Senate Republicans and House Democrats can find common ground.
The two sides look to be at a standoff, but an agreement is still expected in early August. The market is particularly watching to see what happens with the enhanced unemployment benefits. Republicans have proposed cutting it to $200, but Democrats support keeping it.

The economy

Cutting the size of the payments back might be good for the labor market and persuade more workers to return to work, some strategists say. However, there is also concern that the funding has helped stimulate the economy and keep the unemployed from defaulting on loans and payments. Consumer spending on goods in June was even higher than last year, and that was also seen as getting a lift from stimulus.
Besides the jobs report, there are other important data like ISM manufacturing on Monday. There are also monthly vehicle sales Monday, and ISM nonmanufacturing data Wednesday.
“I think the macro data is going to be fine next week,” said Knapp. “I’m not in the camp that thinks the payroll number is going to be negative.”
NatWest Markets economist Kevin Cummins is one of the economists who expects the jobs gains to be much smaller than the past two months. He expects the payrolls to come in at just 200,000. “You look at jobless claims, and you see a stalling out,” he said. “The Fed is right. There is significant downside risk to the economy.”

A trade to watch

Treasury yields, in the 2-year to 7-year range, fell to new lows in the past week. The 10-year yield, not yet at a record low, was also falling and was at 0.53% Friday. At the same time, the dollar was down more than 1% on the week and 4% for the month.
Gold was a beneficiary of the lower interest rates, weaker dollar trade, rising about 5% for the week and 10% for the month.
Strategist say investors are reacting to super-low interest rates, concerns about the economy, and the possibility that huge government spending will send inflation higher.
Investors are also jumping into inflation-protected bonds. According to Refinitiv’s Lipper, inflation-protected bond funds took in $271 million of net new money for the fund-flows week ended July 29, the sixth week of gains. About $1 billion went into the SPDR Gold Shares ETF, (GLD) in the last week, Lipper said.
During this time period, the Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities funds recorded their two best weekly net inflows ever with increases of $1.9 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively, for the fund-flows weeks of June 24 and July 1.
Lipper said investors started to put money into TIPS funds in the middle of the second quarter, and the flows have been . net positive in 11 out of 13 weeks since the beginning of May. This its second-worst quarterly net outflows ever as oil prices slumped in the first quarter.
“I think this is going to be a much more inflationary decade. It will start out slowly. [Fed Chairman Jerome] Powell is right that more forces are putting downward pressure on inflation at present. But the market looks past that,” said Knapp. “The big story in 2021 will be the recovery of inflation. You’re already seeing it in import prices.”

August: Top NASDAQ & Russell 2000 Month of Election Years

August is amongst the worst months of the year. It is the worst DJIA, S&P 500, NASDAQ, Russell 1000 and Russell 2000 month over the last 32 years, 1988-2019 with average declines ranging from 0.1% by NASDAQ to 1.1% by DJIA.
Contributing to this poor performance since 1987; the second shortest bear market in history (45 days) caused by turmoil in Russia, the Asian currency crisis and the Long-Term Capital Management hedge fund debacle ending August 31, 1998 with the DJIA shedding 6.4% that day. DJIA dropped a record 1344.22 points for the month, off 15.1%—which is the second worst monthly percentage DJIA loss since 1950. Saddam Hussein triggered a 10.0% slide in August 1990. The best DJIA gains occurred in 1982 (11.5%) and 1984 (9.8%) as bear markets ended. Sizeable losses in 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2015 of over 4% on DJIA have widened Augusts’ average decline.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
However, in election years since 1950, Augusts’ rankings improve: #6 DJIA, #5 S&P 500, #1 NASDAQ (since 1971), #1 Russell 1000 and #1 Russell 2000 (since 1979). This year, the market’s performance in August will likely depend heavily on how July closes and whether or not the rate of covid-19 infection continues to accelerate which could force some areas to roll back reopenings.

August’s First Trading Day Bearish Last 23 Years

From the Stock Trader’s Almanac 2020 (page 88), it is known that the first trading days of each month combined gain nearly as much as all other days combined. However, the first trading day of August does not contribute to this phenomenon ranking worst among other First Trading Days in the 2020 Almanac. In the past 23 years DJIA has risen just 30.4% (up 7, down 16) of the time on the first trading day of August. Average and median losses are on the mild side due to a few sizable advances. Over the past nine years, DJIA and S&P 500 have both declined nine times.

S&P 500 Stronger Underneath the Surface

Earlier today we posted a chart showing S&P 500 sector performance since the Nasdaq's recent peak on 7/20 when Technology stocks began what has now been a 10-day period of consolidation. Below we have updated these performance numbers to include today's moves. While not as many sectors remain in positive territory, the majority of sectors continue to outperform the S&P 500, while Technology drags the market lower. Along with Technology, Communication Services, and Consumer Discretionary are the only other sectors that have lagged the S&P 500, and their performance has been dragged down by the mega-cap tech-like stocks of Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Amazon (AMZN).
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Expanding on this theme of underlying strength in the index, the chart below shows the average performance of stocks in the S&P 500 grouped by sector. On an equal-weighted basis, the S&P 500 is actually up 1.3% since 7/20, and only two sectors (Technology and Materials) have seen negative average returns. On the upside, Real Estate (4.1%) has been the big winner followed by Consumer Discretionary (3.3%), and Consumer Staples (2.2%). The fact that Consumer Discretionary at the cap-weighted sector level is down over 1.4% while the average performance of stocks in the sector has been a gain of 3.3% illustrates what a mammoth impact AMZN has on that sector.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Breadth among S&P 500 stocks has also been overwhelmingly positive. For the S&P 500 as a whole, 59% of stocks in the index have had positive returns since the close on 7/20. Only two sectors (Technology and Materials) have seen fewer than half of their components post positive returns over that time, while Real Estate, Consumer Staples, and Utilities have seen roughly three-quarters of their components rally since 7/20.

Bullish Earnings Season So Far

At our Earnings Explorer tool available to clients on our website, we provide a real-time look at beat rates for both EPS and sales. Below is a snapshot from the website showing both the EPS and sales beat rates for US companies reporting earnings on a rolling 3-month basis. Currently, 64.61% of companies have exceeded consensus analyst EPS estimates over the last three months, while 63.75% of companies have beaten consensus sales estimates over the same time frame.
In looking at the chart, you can see a big spike in the EPS beat rate over the last few weeks. Since earnings season began on July 13th, nearly 80% of companies have posted stronger than expected EPS numbers. That's a huge beat rate and suggests that analysts were too bearish on Q2 numbers heading into July. The revenue beat rate held up much better than EPS beats throughout the first half of 2020, but it too is on the upswing this season.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We also monitor how share prices are reacting to earnings reports. So far this earnings season, the average stock that has reported Q2 numbers has gained 1.31% on its earnings reaction day. That compares to a historical average one-day change of just 0.06% on earnings reaction days. As shown below, stocks that have beaten EPS estimates this season have gained 2.2% on earnings reaction days, while companies that have missed EPS estimates have fallen 1.89%. It's rare to see beats gaining more than misses decline, but that's what is happening this season.

China Running Away YTD

Every Wednesday, we publish our Global Macro Dashboard which provides a high-level summary of market and economic data of some of the world's largest economies. Of the 23 stock markets tracked, just six including the US are positive year to date at the moment (in local currency). In the chart below we show the YTD performance of these six countries as well as the global median in 2020. As shown, even though it was actually the first to tip into the green YTD following the global sell-off in February and March very briefly back in early June, the US is up the least of this group with a YTD gain of 0.4%. China's stock market is up the most at +14%. Taiwan, South Korea, South Africa, and Malaysia are also outperforming the US but are up more modestly than China with the best of these, Taiwan, gaining 4.53% this year. Meanwhile, the median country in our Global Macro Dashboard remains down 6.2% YTD.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Given it is up the most on a year to date basis, China has also gained the largest share of global equity market cap in 2020. As shown in the table below, China has gained 1.7 percentage points of global market cap in 2020 and now takes up 10.14%. China now joins the US as the only other country with a double-digit share of total world market cap. Despite this, China has actually lost share since the bear market lows on 3/23. Meanwhile, the US, Germany, Canada, India, South Korea, and Australia have all gained a significant share since 3/23.

Do the Top 5 Stocks Pose a Risk to the Market?

Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Facebook. These five stocks have helped spawn a number of acronyms as they try to capture the rise of mega-cap tech stocks that have led the market higher for much of the past decade. The average return for those five stocks so far this year has been a gain of more than 30%, while the broad S&P 500 Index is just marginally positive, at 0.4% through July 30.
While many other areas of the market have remained largely static, the total market value of these stocks has dramatically increased, making them an increasingly large piece of market cap-weighted indexes such as the S&P 500. As shown in the LPL Chart of the Day, the combined weight of the top five stocks in the S&P 500 has increased to its highest level ever, at nearly 22%. Only one of those five stocks (Microsoft) was a top five name in the index during the previous peak of March 2000.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
But does this pose a risk to the index? From a diversification standpoint, one could certainly argue it does. For instance, if any shared risks should come up, from regulation, for example, it could do outsized damage to cap-weighted indexes. However, we believe that the recent gains have been justified by the fundamentals, and we continue to favor both large caps over small caps, and growth-style stocks over value stocks. According to analysis from Credit Suisse, over the past 12 months, the top five stocks in the index have grown revenues at 11.2% vs. just 0.8% for the rest of the S&P 500. Further, the remainder of the S&P 500 has subtracted roughly $17 from S&P 500 earnings per share (EPS), while the top five stocks have added more than $12.
Finally, while these stocks have been the face of the recent “stay-at-home trend” and may be more insulated from broader economic weakness, they are far from the only stocks making money this year. On July 30, the Philadelphia Stock Exchange Semiconductor Index hit a new all-time high and is now up more than 15% year-to-date.
“After a huge run, many of these top stocks may be due for a pause,” said LPL Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “However, looking out over the next 6 to 12 months, we believe that investors will continue to place a premium on companies that are able to organically grow sales, especially in a low-growth environment.”

2020.08.01 17:56 bigbear0083 Wall Street Week Ahead for the trading week beginning August 3rd, 2020

Good Saturday morning to all of you here on stocks. I hope everyone on this sub made out pretty nicely in the market this past week, and is ready for the new trading month ahead.
Here is everything you need to know to get you ready for the trading week beginning August 3rd, 2020.

Earnings and fiscal debate could be catalysts for stocks in the week ahead - (Source)

The market could lose some of its exuberance in the week ahead as the calendar turns to August, and investors await Friday’s July employment report and keep their eyes on Washington.
The focus will also be squarely on politicians, as Congress struggles to find a middle ground on a new fiscal spending package and decide the fate of the $600 a week unemployment supplement that was set to expire July 31. Former vice president Joe Biden is also expected to name his running mate in the coming week.
The jobs data will be crucial, particularly since the number of people filing for unemployment benefits has been edging higher, instead of falling back, as expected. According to Refinitiv, about 1.36 million new jobs are expected, well below the 4.8 million added in June, and the unemployment rate is expected to fall to 10.7% from 11.1%.
Trading around the report could be volatile, since some economists expect more than 2 million jobs were added, and some even see flat or negative payrolls.
Stocks have done well for the month of July, with the S&P 500 finishing at 3,271, a gain of 5.5%. The Nasdaq has performed the best, rising 6.8% for the month to 10,745, after a 3.7% gain for the past week.
“August has traditionally been a challenging month for investors,” said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA. The market is entering what historically has been the worst two months for stocks.
According to Stovall, the S&P 500 has been higher in August 53% of the time, and its average move is a gain of just 0.01%, going back to World War II. September is worse, down 0.51% on average, and up just 48% of the time.
In presidential election years, however the odds for August gains are better, as it rose 63% of the time and 73%, when the incumbent is up for re-election.
There are also about 120 S&P 500 companies reporting earnings, but the big earnings show for markets was this past week when four of the five biggest tech giants all reported Thursday afternoon. Three of those stocks — Apple, Amazon and Facebook — surged, helping Nasdaq outperform Friday with a more than 1.5% gain.

Earnings scorecard

“We’re only a month into the reporting period, and things are going to become less and less important from an earnings perspective,” said Stovall. “I think investors are sort of disappointed in that the bar was set so low for second quarter earnings that expectations were that we were going to see a lot of companies beat, which we have. But we were also going to see a gradual uplift of earnings expectations for forward quarters. We’re not seeing that.”
Eighty-two percent of the companies reporting so far have beaten estimates, well above the average 65%, according to Refinitiv. The earnings decline is now looking closer to 33% from an initial 40%, and tech, which has been leading the market is one of the best performers. Profits for the sector now look to be up 1.4%, according to I/B/E/S data from Refinitiv.
Because the tech names have contributed so much to market gains, their earnings were an important test for the market, and they didn’t disappoint. But they didn’t manage to pull up the whole market very far on Friday.
Among the names reporting in the coming week are a diverse group, including Disney, ViacomCBS, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Berkshire Hathaway, AIG, Clorox, and Wayfair, to name a few.

Politics now in play

“The earnings story is over. My call had been once we had gotten through the earnings season, we would be more vulnerable to a sustainable pullback,” said Barry Knapp, Ironside Macroeconomics managing partner and director of research. “Obviously, it’s volatility season, but it’s also an election year. ... We’re more vulnerable to that next week and earnings won’t hold us up.”
Knapp said if President Donald Trump and Republicans do not begin to perform better in the polls by Labor Day, the market is likely to focus on what a Democratic win would mean for taxes and regulation. That could be a negative for stocks.
“If he hasn’t made headway by then, it’s likely he’s done.That’s about the point when things become pretty set in stone. The market will presume that’s the case,” Knapp said.
The politics of the stimulus package could also reverberate through markets, until it looks like the Senate Republicans and House Democrats can find common ground.
The two sides look to be at a standoff, but an agreement is still expected in early August. The market is particularly watching to see what happens with the enhanced unemployment benefits. Republicans have proposed cutting it to $200, but Democrats support keeping it.

The economy

Cutting the size of the payments back might be good for the labor market and persuade more workers to return to work, some strategists say. However, there is also concern that the funding has helped stimulate the economy and keep the unemployed from defaulting on loans and payments. Consumer spending on goods in June was even higher than last year, and that was also seen as getting a lift from stimulus.
Besides the jobs report, there are other important data like ISM manufacturing on Monday. There are also monthly vehicle sales Monday, and ISM nonmanufacturing data Wednesday.
“I think the macro data is going to be fine next week,” said Knapp. “I’m not in the camp that thinks the payroll number is going to be negative.”
NatWest Markets economist Kevin Cummins is one of the economists who expects the jobs gains to be much smaller than the past two months. He expects the payrolls to come in at just 200,000. “You look at jobless claims, and you see a stalling out,” he said. “The Fed is right. There is significant downside risk to the economy.”

A trade to watch

Treasury yields, in the 2-year to 7-year range, fell to new lows in the past week. The 10-year yield, not yet at a record low, was also falling and was at 0.53% Friday. At the same time, the dollar was down more than 1% on the week and 4% for the month.
Gold was a beneficiary of the lower interest rates, weaker dollar trade, rising about 5% for the week and 10% for the month.
Strategist say investors are reacting to super-low interest rates, concerns about the economy, and the possibility that huge government spending will send inflation higher.
Investors are also jumping into inflation-protected bonds. According to Refinitiv’s Lipper, inflation-protected bond funds took in $271 million of net new money for the fund-flows week ended July 29, the sixth week of gains. About $1 billion went into the SPDR Gold Shares ETF, (GLD) in the last week, Lipper said.
During this time period, the Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities funds recorded their two best weekly net inflows ever with increases of $1.9 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively, for the fund-flows weeks of June 24 and July 1.
Lipper said investors started to put money into TIPS funds in the middle of the second quarter, and the flows have been . net positive in 11 out of 13 weeks since the beginning of May. This its second-worst quarterly net outflows ever as oil prices slumped in the first quarter.
“I think this is going to be a much more inflationary decade. It will start out slowly. [Fed Chairman Jerome] Powell is right that more forces are putting downward pressure on inflation at present. But the market looks past that,” said Knapp. “The big story in 2021 will be the recovery of inflation. You’re already seeing it in import prices.”

August: Top NASDAQ & Russell 2000 Month of Election Years

August is amongst the worst months of the year. It is the worst DJIA, S&P 500, NASDAQ, Russell 1000 and Russell 2000 month over the last 32 years, 1988-2019 with average declines ranging from 0.1% by NASDAQ to 1.1% by DJIA.
Contributing to this poor performance since 1987; the second shortest bear market in history (45 days) caused by turmoil in Russia, the Asian currency crisis and the Long-Term Capital Management hedge fund debacle ending August 31, 1998 with the DJIA shedding 6.4% that day. DJIA dropped a record 1344.22 points for the month, off 15.1%—which is the second worst monthly percentage DJIA loss since 1950. Saddam Hussein triggered a 10.0% slide in August 1990. The best DJIA gains occurred in 1982 (11.5%) and 1984 (9.8%) as bear markets ended. Sizeable losses in 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2015 of over 4% on DJIA have widened Augusts’ average decline.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
However, in election years since 1950, Augusts’ rankings improve: #6 DJIA, #5 S&P 500, #1 NASDAQ (since 1971), #1 Russell 1000 and #1 Russell 2000 (since 1979). This year, the market’s performance in August will likely depend heavily on how July closes and whether or not the rate of covid-19 infection continues to accelerate which could force some areas to roll back reopenings.

August’s First Trading Day Bearish Last 23 Years

From the Stock Trader’s Almanac 2020 (page 88), it is known that the first trading days of each month combined gain nearly as much as all other days combined. However, the first trading day of August does not contribute to this phenomenon ranking worst among other First Trading Days in the 2020 Almanac. In the past 23 years DJIA has risen just 30.4% (up 7, down 16) of the time on the first trading day of August. Average and median losses are on the mild side due to a few sizable advances. Over the past nine years, DJIA and S&P 500 have both declined nine times.

S&P 500 Stronger Underneath the Surface

Earlier today we posted a chart showing S&P 500 sector performance since the Nasdaq's recent peak on 7/20 when Technology stocks began what has now been a 10-day period of consolidation. Below we have updated these performance numbers to include today's moves. While not as many sectors remain in positive territory, the majority of sectors continue to outperform the S&P 500, while Technology drags the market lower. Along with Technology, Communication Services, and Consumer Discretionary are the only other sectors that have lagged the S&P 500, and their performance has been dragged down by the mega-cap tech-like stocks of Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Amazon (AMZN).
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Expanding on this theme of underlying strength in the index, the chart below shows the average performance of stocks in the S&P 500 grouped by sector. On an equal-weighted basis, the S&P 500 is actually up 1.3% since 7/20, and only two sectors (Technology and Materials) have seen negative average returns. On the upside, Real Estate (4.1%) has been the big winner followed by Consumer Discretionary (3.3%), and Consumer Staples (2.2%). The fact that Consumer Discretionary at the cap-weighted sector level is down over 1.4% while the average performance of stocks in the sector has been a gain of 3.3% illustrates what a mammoth impact AMZN has on that sector.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Breadth among S&P 500 stocks has also been overwhelmingly positive. For the S&P 500 as a whole, 59% of stocks in the index have had positive returns since the close on 7/20. Only two sectors (Technology and Materials) have seen fewer than half of their components post positive returns over that time, while Real Estate, Consumer Staples, and Utilities have seen roughly three-quarters of their components rally since 7/20.

Bullish Earnings Season So Far

At our Earnings Explorer tool available to clients on our website, we provide a real-time look at beat rates for both EPS and sales. Below is a snapshot from the website showing both the EPS and sales beat rates for US companies reporting earnings on a rolling 3-month basis. Currently, 64.61% of companies have exceeded consensus analyst EPS estimates over the last three months, while 63.75% of companies have beaten consensus sales estimates over the same time frame.
In looking at the chart, you can see a big spike in the EPS beat rate over the last few weeks. Since earnings season began on July 13th, nearly 80% of companies have posted stronger than expected EPS numbers. That's a huge beat rate and suggests that analysts were too bearish on Q2 numbers heading into July. The revenue beat rate held up much better than EPS beats throughout the first half of 2020, but it too is on the upswing this season.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
We also monitor how share prices are reacting to earnings reports. So far this earnings season, the average stock that has reported Q2 numbers has gained 1.31% on its earnings reaction day. That compares to a historical average one-day change of just 0.06% on earnings reaction days. As shown below, stocks that have beaten EPS estimates this season have gained 2.2% on earnings reaction days, while companies that have missed EPS estimates have fallen 1.89%. It's rare to see beats gaining more than misses decline, but that's what is happening this season.

China Running Away YTD

Every Wednesday, we publish our Global Macro Dashboard which provides a high-level summary of market and economic data of some of the world's largest economies. Of the 23 stock markets tracked, just six including the US are positive year to date at the moment (in local currency). In the chart below we show the YTD performance of these six countries as well as the global median in 2020. As shown, even though it was actually the first to tip into the green YTD following the global sell-off in February and March very briefly back in early June, the US is up the least of this group with a YTD gain of 0.4%. China's stock market is up the most at +14%. Taiwan, South Korea, South Africa, and Malaysia are also outperforming the US but are up more modestly than China with the best of these, Taiwan, gaining 4.53% this year. Meanwhile, the median country in our Global Macro Dashboard remains down 6.2% YTD.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Given it is up the most on a year to date basis, China has also gained the largest share of global equity market cap in 2020. As shown in the table below, China has gained 1.7 percentage points of global market cap in 2020 and now takes up 10.14%. China now joins the US as the only other country with a double-digit share of total world market cap. Despite this, China has actually lost share since the bear market lows on 3/23. Meanwhile, the US, Germany, Canada, India, South Korea, and Australia have all gained a significant share since 3/23.

Do the Top 5 Stocks Pose a Risk to the Market?

Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Facebook. These five stocks have helped spawn a number of acronyms as they try to capture the rise of mega-cap tech stocks that have led the market higher for much of the past decade. The average return for those five stocks so far this year has been a gain of more than 30%, while the broad S&P 500 Index is just marginally positive, at 0.4% through July 30.
While many other areas of the market have remained largely static, the total market value of these stocks has dramatically increased, making them an increasingly large piece of market cap-weighted indexes such as the S&P 500. As shown in the LPL Chart of the Day, the combined weight of the top five stocks in the S&P 500 has increased to its highest level ever, at nearly 22%. Only one of those five stocks (Microsoft) was a top five name in the index during the previous peak of March 2000.

But does this pose a risk to the index? From a diversification standpoint, one could certainly argue it does. For instance, if any shared risks should come up, from regulation, for example, it could do outsized damage to cap-weighted indexes. However, we believe that the recent gains have been justified by the fundamentals, and we continue to favor both large caps over small caps, and growth-style stocks over value stocks. According to analysis from Credit Suisse, over the past 12 months, the top five stocks in the index have grown revenues at 11.2% vs. just 0.8% for the rest of the S&P 500. Further, the remainder of the S&P 500 has subtracted roughly $17 from S&P 500 earnings per share (EPS), while the top five stocks have added more than $12.
Finally, while these stocks have been the face of the recent “stay-at-home trend” and may be more insulated from broader economic weakness, they are far from the only stocks making money this year. On July 30, the Philadelphia Stock Exchange Semiconductor Index hit a new all-time high and is now up more than 15% year-to-date.
“After a huge run, many of these top stocks may be due for a pause,” said LPL Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “However, looking out over the next 6 to 12 months, we believe that investors will continue to place a premium on companies that are able to organically grow sales, especially in a low-growth environment.”

2020.08.01 17:53 bigbear0083 Wall Street Week Ahead for the trading week beginning August 3rd, 2020

Good Saturday morning to all of you here on StockMarket. I hope everyone on this sub made out pretty nicely in the market this past week, and is ready for the new trading month ahead.
Here is everything you need to know to get you ready for the trading week beginning August 3rd, 2020.

Earnings and fiscal debate could be catalysts for stocks in the week ahead - (Source)

The market could lose some of its exuberance in the week ahead as the calendar turns to August, and investors await Friday’s July employment report and keep their eyes on Washington.
The focus will also be squarely on politicians, as Congress struggles to find a middle ground on a new fiscal spending package and decide the fate of the $600 a week unemployment supplement that was set to expire July 31. Former vice president Joe Biden is also expected to name his running mate in the coming week.
The jobs data will be crucial, particularly since the number of people filing for unemployment benefits has been edging higher, instead of falling back, as expected. According to Refinitiv, about 1.36 million new jobs are expected, well below the 4.8 million added in June, and the unemployment rate is expected to fall to 10.7% from 11.1%.
Trading around the report could be volatile, since some economists expect more than 2 million jobs were added, and some even see flat or negative payrolls.
Stocks have done well for the month of July, with the S&P 500 finishing at 3,271, a gain of 5.5%. The Nasdaq has performed the best, rising 6.8% for the month to 10,745, after a 3.7% gain for the past week.
“August has traditionally been a challenging month for investors,” said Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at CFRA. The market is entering what historically has been the worst two months for stocks.
According to Stovall, the S&P 500 has been higher in August 53% of the time, and its average move is a gain of just 0.01%, going back to World War II. September is worse, down 0.51% on average, and up just 48% of the time.
In presidential election years, however the odds for August gains are better, as it rose 63% of the time and 73%, when the incumbent is up for re-election.
There are also about 120 S&P 500 companies reporting earnings, but the big earnings show for markets was this past week when four of the five biggest tech giants all reported Thursday afternoon. Three of those stocks — Apple, Amazon and Facebook — surged, helping Nasdaq outperform Friday with a more than 1.5% gain.

Earnings scorecard

“We’re only a month into the reporting period, and things are going to become less and less important from an earnings perspective,” said Stovall. “I think investors are sort of disappointed in that the bar was set so low for second quarter earnings that expectations were that we were going to see a lot of companies beat, which we have. But we were also going to see a gradual uplift of earnings expectations for forward quarters. We’re not seeing that.”
Eighty-two percent of the companies reporting so far have beaten estimates, well above the average 65%, according to Refinitiv. The earnings decline is now looking closer to 33% from an initial 40%, and tech, which has been leading the market is one of the best performers. Profits for the sector now look to be up 1.4%, according to I/B/E/S data from Refinitiv.
Because the tech names have contributed so much to market gains, their earnings were an important test for the market, and they didn’t disappoint. But they didn’t manage to pull up the whole market very far on Friday.
Among the names reporting in the coming week are a diverse group, including Disney, ViacomCBS, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Berkshire Hathaway, AIG, Clorox, and Wayfair, to name a few.

Politics now in play

“The earnings story is over. My call had been once we had gotten through the earnings season, we would be more vulnerable to a sustainable pullback,” said Barry Knapp, Ironside Macroeconomics managing partner and director of research. “Obviously, it’s volatility season, but it’s also an election year. ... We’re more vulnerable to that next week and earnings won’t hold us up.”
Knapp said if President Donald Trump and Republicans do not begin to perform better in the polls by Labor Day, the market is likely to focus on what a Democratic win would mean for taxes and regulation. That could be a negative for stocks.
“If he hasn’t made headway by then, it’s likely he’s done.That’s about the point when things become pretty set in stone. The market will presume that’s the case,” Knapp said.
The politics of the stimulus package could also reverberate through markets, until it looks like the Senate Republicans and House Democrats can find common ground.
The two sides look to be at a standoff, but an agreement is still expected in early August. The market is particularly watching to see what happens with the enhanced unemployment benefits. Republicans have proposed cutting it to $200, but Democrats support keeping it.

The economy

Cutting the size of the payments back might be good for the labor market and persuade more workers to return to work, some strategists say. However, there is also concern that the funding has helped stimulate the economy and keep the unemployed from defaulting on loans and payments. Consumer spending on goods in June was even higher than last year, and that was also seen as getting a lift from stimulus.
Besides the jobs report, there are other important data like ISM manufacturing on Monday. There are also monthly vehicle sales Monday, and ISM nonmanufacturing data Wednesday.
“I think the macro data is going to be fine next week,” said Knapp. “I’m not in the camp that thinks the payroll number is going to be negative.”
NatWest Markets economist Kevin Cummins is one of the economists who expects the jobs gains to be much smaller than the past two months. He expects the payrolls to come in at just 200,000. “You look at jobless claims, and you see a stalling out,” he said. “The Fed is right. There is significant downside risk to the economy.”

A trade to watch

Treasury yields, in the 2-year to 7-year range, fell to new lows in the past week. The 10-year yield, not yet at a record low, was also falling and was at 0.53% Friday. At the same time, the dollar was down more than 1% on the week and 4% for the month.
Gold was a beneficiary of the lower interest rates, weaker dollar trade, rising about 5% for the week and 10% for the month.
Strategist say investors are reacting to super-low interest rates, concerns about the economy, and the possibility that huge government spending will send inflation higher.
Investors are also jumping into inflation-protected bonds. According to Refinitiv’s Lipper, inflation-protected bond funds took in $271 million of net new money for the fund-flows week ended July 29, the sixth week of gains. About $1 billion went into the SPDR Gold Shares ETF, (GLD) in the last week, Lipper said.
During this time period, the Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities funds recorded their two best weekly net inflows ever with increases of $1.9 billion and $1.5 billion, respectively, for the fund-flows weeks of June 24 and July 1.
Lipper said investors started to put money into TIPS funds in the middle of the second quarter, and the flows have been . net positive in 11 out of 13 weeks since the beginning of May. This its second-worst quarterly net outflows ever as oil prices slumped in the first quarter.
“I think this is going to be a much more inflationary decade. It will start out slowly. [Fed Chairman Jerome] Powell is right that more forces are putting downward pressure on inflation at present. But the market looks past that,” said Knapp. “The big story in 2021 will be the recovery of inflation. You’re already seeing it in import prices.”

August: Top NASDAQ & Russell 2000 Month of Election Years

August is amongst the worst months of the year. It is the worst DJIA, S&P 500, NASDAQ, Russell 1000 and Russell 2000 month over the last 32 years, 1988-2019 with average declines ranging from 0.1% by NASDAQ to 1.1% by DJIA.
Contributing to this poor performance since 1987; the second shortest bear market in history (45 days) caused by turmoil in Russia, the Asian currency crisis and the Long-Term Capital Management hedge fund debacle ending August 31, 1998 with the DJIA shedding 6.4% that day. DJIA dropped a record 1344.22 points for the month, off 15.1%—which is the second worst monthly percentage DJIA loss since 1950. Saddam Hussein triggered a 10.0% slide in August 1990. The best DJIA gains occurred in 1982 (11.5%) and 1984 (9.8%) as bear markets ended. Sizeable losses in 2010, 2011, 2013 and 2015 of over 4% on DJIA have widened Augusts’ average decline.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
However, in election years since 1950, Augusts’ rankings improve: #6 DJIA, #5 S&P 500, #1 NASDAQ (since 1971), #1 Russell 1000 and #1 Russell 2000 (since 1979). This year, the market’s performance in August will likely depend heavily on how July closes and whether or not the rate of covid-19 infection continues to accelerate which could force some areas to roll back reopenings.

August’s First Trading Day Bearish Last 23 Years

From the Stock Trader’s Almanac 2020 (page 88), it is known that the first trading days of each month combined gain nearly as much as all other days combined. However, the first trading day of August does not contribute to this phenomenon ranking worst among other First Trading Days in the 2020 Almanac. In the past 23 years DJIA has risen just 30.4% (up 7, down 16) of the time on the first trading day of August. Average and median losses are on the mild side due to a few sizable advances. Over the past nine years, DJIA and S&P 500 have both declined nine times.

S&P 500 Stronger Underneath the Surface

Earlier today we posted a chart showing S&P 500 sector performance since the Nasdaq's recent peak on 7/20 when Technology stocks began what has now been a 10-day period of consolidation. Below we have updated these performance numbers to include today's moves. While not as many sectors remain in positive territory, the majority of sectors continue to outperform the S&P 500, while Technology drags the market lower. Along with Technology, Communication Services, and Consumer Discretionary are the only other sectors that have lagged the S&P 500, and their performance has been dragged down by the mega-cap tech-like stocks of Alphabet (GOOGL), Facebook (FB), and Amazon (AMZN).
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Expanding on this theme of underlying strength in the index, the chart below shows the average performance of stocks in the S&P 500 grouped by sector. On an equal-weighted basis, the S&P 500 is actually up 1.3% since 7/20, and only two sectors (Technology and Materials) have seen negative average returns. On the upside, Real Estate (4.1%) has been the big winner followed by Consumer Discretionary (3.3%), and Consumer Staples (2.2%). The fact that Consumer Discretionary at the cap-weighted sector level is down over 1.4% while the average performance of stocks in the sector has been a gain of 3.3% illustrates what a mammoth impact AMZN has on that sector.

Breadth among S&P 500 stocks has also been overwhelmingly positive. For the S&P 500 as a whole, 59% of stocks in the index have had positive returns since the close on 7/20. Only two sectors (Technology and Materials) have seen fewer than half of their components post positive returns over that time, while Real Estate, Consumer Staples, and Utilities have seen roughly three-quarters of their components rally since 7/20.

Bullish Earnings Season So Far

At our Earnings Explorer tool available to clients on our website, we provide a real-time look at beat rates for both EPS and sales. Below is a snapshot from the website showing both the EPS and sales beat rates for US companies reporting earnings on a rolling 3-month basis. Currently, 64.61% of companies have exceeded consensus analyst EPS estimates over the last three months, while 63.75% of companies have beaten consensus sales estimates over the same time frame.
In looking at the chart, you can see a big spike in the EPS beat rate over the last few weeks. Since earnings season began on July 13th, nearly 80% of companies have posted stronger than expected EPS numbers. That's a huge beat rate and suggests that analysts were too bearish on Q2 numbers heading into July. The revenue beat rate held up much better than EPS beats throughout the first half of 2020, but it too is on the upswing this season.

We also monitor how share prices are reacting to earnings reports. So far this earnings season, the average stock that has reported Q2 numbers has gained 1.31% on its earnings reaction day. That compares to a historical average one-day change of just 0.06% on earnings reaction days. As shown below, stocks that have beaten EPS estimates this season have gained 2.2% on earnings reaction days, while companies that have missed EPS estimates have fallen 1.89%. It's rare to see beats gaining more than misses decline, but that's what is happening this season.

China Running Away YTD

Every Wednesday, we publish our Global Macro Dashboard which provides a high-level summary of market and economic data of some of the world's largest economies. Of the 23 stock markets tracked, just six including the US are positive year to date at the moment (in local currency). In the chart below we show the YTD performance of these six countries as well as the global median in 2020. As shown, even though it was actually the first to tip into the green YTD following the global sell-off in February and March very briefly back in early June, the US is up the least of this group with a YTD gain of 0.4%. China's stock market is up the most at +14%. Taiwan, South Korea, South Africa, and Malaysia are also outperforming the US but are up more modestly than China with the best of these, Taiwan, gaining 4.53% this year. Meanwhile, the median country in our Global Macro Dashboard remains down 6.2% YTD.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
Given it is up the most on a year to date basis, China has also gained the largest share of global equity market cap in 2020. As shown in the table below, China has gained 1.7 percentage points of global market cap in 2020 and now takes up 10.14%. China now joins the US as the only other country with a double-digit share of total world market cap. Despite this, China has actually lost share since the bear market lows on 3/23. Meanwhile, the US, Germany, Canada, India, South Korea, and Australia have all gained a significant share since 3/23.

Do the Top 5 Stocks Pose a Risk to the Market?

Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and Facebook. These five stocks have helped spawn a number of acronyms as they try to capture the rise of mega-cap tech stocks that have led the market higher for much of the past decade. The average return for those five stocks so far this year has been a gain of more than 30%, while the broad S&P 500 Index is just marginally positive, at 0.4% through July 30.
While many other areas of the market have remained largely static, the total market value of these stocks has dramatically increased, making them an increasingly large piece of market cap-weighted indexes such as the S&P 500. As shown in the LPL Chart of the Day, the combined weight of the top five stocks in the S&P 500 has increased to its highest level ever, at nearly 22%. Only one of those five stocks (Microsoft) was a top five name in the index during the previous peak of March 2000.
(CLICK HERE FOR THE CHART!)
But does this pose a risk to the index? From a diversification standpoint, one could certainly argue it does. For instance, if any shared risks should come up, from regulation, for example, it could do outsized damage to cap-weighted indexes. However, we believe that the recent gains have been justified by the fundamentals, and we continue to favor both large caps over small caps, and growth-style stocks over value stocks. According to analysis from Credit Suisse, over the past 12 months, the top five stocks in the index have grown revenues at 11.2% vs. just 0.8% for the rest of the S&P 500. Further, the remainder of the S&P 500 has subtracted roughly $17 from S&P 500 earnings per share (EPS), while the top five stocks have added more than $12.
Finally, while these stocks have been the face of the recent “stay-at-home trend” and may be more insulated from broader economic weakness, they are far from the only stocks making money this year. On July 30, the Philadelphia Stock Exchange Semiconductor Index hit a new all-time high and is now up more than 15% year-to-date.
“After a huge run, many of these top stocks may be due for a pause,” said LPL Chief Market Strategist Ryan Detrick. “However, looking out over the next 6 to 12 months, we believe that investors will continue to place a premium on companies that are able to organically grow sales, especially in a low-growth environment.”

2020.07.13 20:21 LearningIsListening A not-so-brief rundown of letters G-I in Jeffrey Epstein's 'Black Book'

Below is a rundown of letters G-I of Epstein's contacts. Last year, I wrote about letters A-C. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/cpis3n/a_brief_rundown_of_the_first_ten_pages_of_jeffrey/).
I also wrote about letters D-F on July 5, 2020. You can check that out here (https://www.reddit.com/conspiracy/comments/hlrba8/a_notsobrief_rundown_of_letters_df_in_jeffrey/). There are some misspelled names. Epstein entered their names like this.
I have bolded some of the more interesting connections and information, but there could be much more that I overlooked. I hope something here strikes an interest in someone and maybe we can get more investigations out of this. Please, if you know anything more about any of these people than what is presented here, post below. I am working off of the unredacted black book found here: https://www.coreysdigs.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Jeffrey-Epsteins-Little-Black-Book-unredacted.pdf

This, however, doesn’t explain why there are two numbers listed under Hirsch’s name that are attributed to Scott Geffert, the General Manager for Advanced Imaging at the MET museum. This could all be innocent or these two could have assisted in Epstein’s hidden camera setup and helped Epstein get high quality pictures of his victims. We can’t be sure.
Hissom, Robert & Andrea: Robert is the founder of Aspen Capital Partners, a large property management firm. He is a friend of Prince Charles. His ex-wife, Andrea, famously got remarried to Steve Wynn, billionaire Las Vegas hotel tycoon. Prince Harry was a guest of Wynn’s at his Encore resort. Andrea and Wynn are close friends of Donald and Melania Trump (source: https://www.pressreader.com/uk/scottish-daily-mail/20120901/281904475353844).

Hoffman, Jessica: Sister of Hetty Hoffman (above), Jessica is an artist and former model who married investment banker Leopoldo Zambeletti. She is a good friend of India Hicks (mentioned above), the granddaughter of Lord Mountbatten (Prince Charles’s mentor), who, according to FBI files, was “a homosexual with a perversion for young boys.”
Holland-Martin, Ben: Works for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). His mother, Rosamund, was chairman of the NSPCC for 20 years while Princess Margaret was President and was involved with the NSPCC for more than 50 years (source: https://www.newspapers.com/image/?clipping_id=36141343&fcfToken=eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJmcmVlLXZpZXctaWQiOjI1OTU4NDE2NSwiaWF0IjoxNTk0MzMwNTQ0LCJleHAiOjE1OTQ0MTY5NDR9.j1V2e0Mr3tJmPzusRYNneLVhUskWiIAvNIjdIpvuzj4). Both Ben and his mother are/were friends of Princess Margaret. Rosamund Holland-Martin (nee Hornby) was related to Charles Hornby, a British socialite and close friend of Prince Charles, who was sentenced to 2 ½ years for luring young runaway boys into prostitution, indecent assault, importuning, and living off the earnings of prostitution (source: https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=0FQ0AAAAIBAJ&sjid=YbkFAAAAIBAJ&pg=4638,2085303).

Backstory

Tawny is the oldest of two daughters to Charles and Mildred Detmer. A modest, conservative couple who own a coffee shop in Bristol. Growing up, Tawny was always a handful for the couple, constantly getting into places she shouldn't be. A hippy flower child from a young age, she did not even kind of fit in with her family or their friends. As she got older, she became more and more eccentric, developing strange interests and mannerisms that her parents did not understand or relate to.
With time, they began to plead for her to "straighten out like a normal girl" and "please stop putting the toads you've collected into the bath tub, that is not their home" and "Tawny, you cannot start an organic produce garden in your bedroom it smells like fertilizer" and "Why were you found trying to pick the lock on the animals' cage at the zoo", well...they were out of their depth. And when Tawny started changing their clothing's colors to "something more fun" by blinking and turning pillows into rabbits, they became concerned.
When her family first discovered she was a witch, her family thought it was a bit for a new reality show. However, they were eventually convinced and Tawny was sent to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She could not have been more excited.

Life At Hogwarts

First Year
The Sorting Hat barely touched her head before it shouted "HUFFLEPUFF!" She made a lot of friends, learned how to access the kitchens, crashed into a professors' office during Flying lessons, and discovered she loved Charms.
Second Year
She made friends with one of the ghosts named "The Adamant Quaker" and with a house elf named Maisie. Accidentally set off a dungbomb during the Christmas Feast and received detention with her Head of House for an entire month.
Third Year
Got into a fight with a Dancing Fly Trap in Herbology when it hooked onto her hair and tried to tug her into its mouth. Danced with the Whomping Willow for the first time. A Potions accident turned her hair pink, which she adored and kept her hair that color for the next two years.
Fourth Year
Received her cat, Oatmeal, in the summer before returning to school. The House Elves begin to regularly let her into the Kitchens to bake. Started buying lots of yarn during Hogsmeade trips. Started learning to play the guitar.
Fifth Year
Started dating a Gryffindor boy a year ahead of her named Byron Wyatt, though it only lasted about four months. Tried to hold a breakdancing contest, but nobody came. Tried learning mermish, to the dismay of her roommates. Got real sick and threw up on her partner in potions, which ended up starting a fire. Did pretty good on her OWLs.
Sixth Year
A quiet year, especially by her standards. She made a lot of new friends, which was great! But she also had some boy trouble and...well, she didn't make enemies but there are some people at Hogwarts she just doesn't like.
At Christmas, she accidentally made a snowman that chased her and a group of younger students around, which was scary.
She spent most of her time baking, exploring, camping, and spending time with her friends.

Personality

Tawny is a cheerful, optimistic ball of sunshine. She has a bubbly personality and loves to laugh and cares deeply for those around her. Likes to help others feel welcome and hates hurting others' feelings. Surprisingly stubborn. Possesses an extremely short attention span and boundless energy. Loves bright colors and music with synthesizers. Loves new experiences. Fiercely independent. Loves her vices and possesses shockingly little modesty. A total hippy who often meditates, to get in touch with mother earth and the universe.
An optimist by nature, Tawny has always chosen to give people the benefit of the doubt and tries to see the best in them. However, Tawny has grown a bit to become more assertive and has shown something of a more shady side if somebody is being a total shithead or hurting other people. She's a proficient dueler and fights with an unorthodox, nonviolent style that has proved to be quite surprising to more than one opponent that she's blindsided. Those who get on her bad side are often surprised at what a fierce enemy she can be.
She loves unconditionally and works herself to the point of exhaustion and detriment in her efforts to make those around her happy. A natural mother hen, she tends to be gentle and nurturing to...well, just about everybody, though she has a particular soft spot for kids. She has a reputation for baking vast quantities of cupcakes and is known to knit scarves and hats for just about everybody in the school. She's always skipping about in any social situation, enthusiastic about meeting new people and trying new things.

Roleplay

Tawny is in the courtyard. She's meditating and doing yoga, humming to herself as she does so.

2020.06.14 19:06 red1870 How we jumped from police brutality to anti-colonialism so quickly.

Events over three days:
The events in Bristol were organic, they were a local issue for a longtime. The registration date for toppletheracists shows that it was created in response to the events in Bristol. Widespread media attention within a day suggests the work was coordinated and not the work of amateurs.
When created, toppletheracists was already populated with statues. It wasn't crowdsourced in a traditional sense and the website is clear that the "Stop Trump Coalition" proposed the initial list.
Given that there were no indications of a BLM initiative to topple statues before this website, and the fact that the website was incendiary to what followed, it makes sense to question who compiled the original list.
The company number for the Stop Trump Coalition is listed on their website.. The officers are listed on the public government database, companies house. Two previous directors are members of Another Europe is Possible a non-profit group who campained for Remain and coordinated many of the protests surrounding the 2019 prorogation controversy.
The people associated with this list have no history with BLM. They are Momentum campaigners and left wing academics. These people have a long history of being involved in anti-government protests.

2020.06.08 20:04 NationofChange Air pollution, mental illness and COVID-19

By: Graham Peebles - June 8, 2020
Read the article here: https://www.nationofchange.org/2020/06/08/air-pollution-mental-illness-and-covid-19/
Lockdowns imposed in response to Covid-19 forced millions of people to stay at home, businesses closed and a widespread hush descended. The major beneficiary of the controls has been the natural environment; in particular there has been a dramatic reduction in air pollution everywhere. But as countries begin to lift restrictions, road traffic levels are once again increasing, air and noise pollution rising.
Changes to working patterns and daily living have created a unique opportunity to re-imagine how we live and work. Central to any new pattern needs to be the environment; many people recognize this and the importance of not ‘going back’. Some cities in Europe are already responding positively (Milan, London, Bristol e.g.), proposing pedestrian only areas together with an increase in cycle lanes, and the results of a recent survey by the Automobile Association (AA) in Britain are encouraging. “Half of those polled said they would walk more and 40% intended to drive less…to maintain the cleaner air of the lockdown and protect the environment.” In addition around a quarter said they planned to (continue) to work more from home, as well as flying less.

Death by breathing

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 90% of the global population breathe filthy toxic air. The bulk of air pollution is the result of burning fossil fuels for heat and power generation (e.g. oil and coal power plants and boilers) and fuel combustion from vehicles—cars, motorbikes, lorries etc. All of which not only throw toxins into the air but also generate enormous levels of noise pollution.
Worldwide, air pollution is said to kill around nine million people a year, making it the fifth leading risk factor for death in the world. Children are particularly vulnerable; they inhale more airborne toxins than adults, tend to spend greater periods of time outside and are more active. The detrimental effects can be long lasting, affecting their physical and mental health as well their education.

Contaminated air is also a significant factor in a person’s susceptibility to Covid-19. Air pollution, particularly Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), as well as Particulate Matter (PM))—both of which are released by vehicles burning fossil fuels, causes and exacerbates respiratory complaints. A university study conducted in Germany found that of the total number of coronavirus deaths in 66 administrative regions of Italy, Spain, France and Germany, “78% of them occurred in just five regions, and these were the most polluted.”

The results of the research “indicate that long-term exposure to this pollutant may be one of the most important contributors to fatality caused by the Covid-19 virus…poisoning our environment means poisoning our own body, and when it experiences chronic respiratory stress [Covid-19 e.g.] it’s ability to defend itself from infections is limited.” A separate study in the US shows that even small “single-unit” increases in particle pollution in the years prior to the pandemic is linked with a 15% increase in deaths. Cleaner air in London or New York e.g., in the past could have saved hundreds of lives.
Air pollution affects everyone but predictably the poorest members of society, including people from black and minority ethnic (BAME) groups, are the most severely impacted, they appear also to be the most at risk from Covid-19. In multi-cultural Britain e.g., people in deprived areas have been dying of coronavirus at double the rate of those in affluent areas. And those from BAME backgrounds—making up around 13% of the UK population – account for a third of virus patients admitted to hospital critical care units. Similar patterns have emerged in other European countries with large minority populations as well as the U.S. Black Americans represent around 14 per cent of the U.S. population but total 30 per cent of those who have contracted the virus. In Norway people born in Somalia have infection rates more than 10 times above the national average.
The social causes behind the figures are complex. Many people from BAME groups live in overcrowded housing in extremely polluted areas and work in high-risk low paid jobs. Diet among some BAME communities is poor and (in part as a result) there is a propensity to underlying health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity and respiratory illnesses, all of which make people more vulnerable to Covid-19.
Poverty is the world’s biggest killer, and Covid-19 is, it seems, the most recent addition to the symptomatic causes of death for the poor, the vulnerable and people from minorities, which, in many cases are one and the same.
In addition to causing millions of deaths and a variety of respiratory conditions, air pollution is increasingly being linked to a range of mental health illnesses, including depression, bipolar, and, according to a study in the UK, psychotic experiences in children.
An estimated 300 million people in the world suffer from depression, a similar number are plagued by anxiety. Many aspects of contemporary living contribute to mental health illnesses, various studies in recent years show that air pollution is one of them. The finest particle pollutants are known to reach the brain via the bloodstream and the nose, The Guardian report, causing increased brain inflammation, “damage to nerve cells and to changes in stress hormone production, which have been linked to poor mental health.” Air pollution has also been shown to quadruple the risk of depression in teenagers and is being linked to dementia.
Together with noise pollution, studies show that filthy air feeds sleep apnea symptoms and may disturb sleep by exacerbating asthma, COPD, or other respiratory or chronic diseases. This in turn creates greater vulnerability to depression and anxiety, as well as the current Covid-19 virus.

Changing behavior

Air pollution is poison, we are literally breathing in toxic compounds that are making us ill, physically and mentally. Urgent and lasting steps are required to reduce to an absolute minimum the levels of air pollution. This requires humanity to drastically reduce its dependency on fossil fuels.
For this to happen there needs to be a major shift in attitudes, triggering a change in behavior and greater levels of environmental responsibility. Consumerism (including consumption of animal food produce) is the principle cause of the environmental emergency, including air pollution. Excessive, unnecessary consumption needs to stop, sufficiency not excess promoted and adopted as the guiding principle. Meat and dairy diets reduced and the trend towards plant based diets encouraged.
At the same time investment in renewable sources of energy generation and supply needs to be increased throughout the world. All unnecessary travel should be eliminated (including air travel), and (where practical) a strategic movement away from the car onto public transport – reliable and clean, cycling and walking. Public transport needs to be state owned and run as a service, not for profit. China, with 99% of the world’s total electric fleet, leads the way in the electrification of public transport, in addition, the Chinese government has invested heavily in electric cars and has set a target of 40% electric vehicles by 2025.
The beautification of our towns and cities (where over 50% of the world’s population now live) goes hand in hand with the reduction in traffic and the promotion of clean modes of transport. Bold imaginative initiatives are required that prioritize the environment and human welfare over corporate concerns. Whole sections of cities and towns, major streets and abandoned sites could be redesigned as peaceful green spaces. And while many fear the closure of retail outlets and the slow death of shopping streets, the possibility of converting these areas to parklands and gardens, present itself and should be embraced.
All flows from a shift in thinking. The environmental emergency is the greatest crisis facing humanity; with every new report published the scope and depth of the crisis becomes increasingly stark, the need for action more urgent. To date the complacency of governments and corporations, as well as large tracts of the public, has been astonishing and shameful; this must now change.
Covid-19 forced governments to act (albeit in many cases inadequately); the same sense of urgency needs to be applied to tackling air pollution, which, I say again, is responsible for at least nine million deaths a year, and the wider environmental emergency. The pandemic has given the natural environment a brief respite from human abuse; as countries ‘open up’, we have the chance to adopt a new responsible approach to living and not revert to old destructive ways.

2020.06.02 03:25 PradoMV96 Thorough DD on $ACHV (Achieve Life Sciences)

What is Achieve life sciences? * $ACHV is a specialty pharmaceutical company committed to advancing cytisinicline as a widely available treatment option to help people battling nicotine addiction * Achieve’s focus is to address the global smoking health epidemic through the development and commercialization of cytisinicline. Smoking is currently the leading cause of preventable death and is responsible for nearly six million people losing their lives annually worldwide
What is their Pipeline product & how does it work? * Their pipeline product is: Cytisinicline * Cytisinicline is a plant-based alkaloid with a high binding affinity to the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor. * It is an established smoking cessation treatment that has been approved and marketed in Central and Eastern Europe for more than 20 years. * Cytisinicline’s dual-acting MOA (method of action) specifically targets the α4β2 nicotine receptor. Through its partial agonist/partial antagonist activity, it is believed to help reduce nicotine cravings, withdrawal symptoms and reward and satisfaction associated with smoking * Cytisinicline is believed to act as a partial agonist, preventing nicotine from binding and releasing dopamine
Cytisinicline Clinical Trials * $ACHV completed their FDA submission: * In preparation for initiation of the Phase 3 ORCA-2 clinical trial of cytisinicline, the Company has now submitted to FDA all requested non-clinical data to allow 6 and 12 weeks of cytisinicline treatment in the Phase 3 trials. * The recent data from the phase 2b Orca 1 trials shows: * There is a Statistically Significant Improvement in Quit Rates for Simplified Cytisinicline Dosing Schedule in Phase 2b ORCA-1 Dose-Selection Trial * Cytisinicline was well-tolerated with no serious adverse events reported * 3.0 mg dose with TID administration selected to move forward to Phase 3 development * Cytisinicline was well-tolerated across all treatment groups; There is an Overall low incidence of adverse events & there were No serious or severe adverse events reported * Links to data graphs displaying the results of Phase 2b Orca1: Graph 1 Graph 2 (there are two more graphs that are posted on the site, but i can't directly link to like in the previous linked graph)
Recent Q1 financials/highlights * As of March 31, 2020, the company's cash, cash equivalents, and restricted cash was $12.2 million. Total operating expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 were $3.4 million. Total net loss for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 was $3.3 million * They beat their expected EPS of -0.12 by 8.33%, reporting an EPS of -0.11, where as the previous quarter, Q4, they reported -0.30 * Closed financing for gross proceeds of approximately $1.9 million, prior to deducting placement agent commissions and estimated offering expenses * In April 2020, Achieve announced it entered into definitive agreements for a private placement of its securities for gross proceeds of approximately $1.9 million, prior to deducting placement agent commissions and estimated offering expenses. The Company intends to use the proceeds to fund clinical research and development, and for general working capital * Presented new findings from the Phase 2b ORCA-1 trial evaluating cytisinicline in U.S. smokers at the Society for Research on Nicotine & Tobacco (SRNT) Annual Conference * An oral presentation featuring new ORCA-1 Phase 2b trial analyses was presented at the SRNT Annual Meeting in March 2020. In addition to previously reported data indicating a statistically significant improvement in quit rates, new analyses demonstrate cytisinicline biochemical efficacy via measurement of serum cotinine as well as the previous carbon monoxide efficacy. Additionally, further analyses confirm that cytisinicline benefit was observed across all clinical sites, baseline characteristics, and attributes. Thus, regardless of trial site location, patient demographics, smoking history, or prior treatments, all subjects treated with cytisinicline showed similar smoking cessation benefit * Established agreement with the FreeMind Group to assist in securing non-dilutive funding to evaluate cytisinicline in vapers and e-cigarette users * Links to their first financial quarter report of 2020: link1 link2 link3
Important events to positively impact Q2-Q4 * September 30th, $ACHV announced the completion of their maximum tolerated dose (MTD) study. The results indicate a lack of dose-limiting toxicity as defined by protocol criteria even at the highest 30 mg single, oral dose of cytisinicline evaluated in the study. * December 9th, $ACHV announced that following discussions with the Food and Drug Administration, $ACHV has received feedback on the final Phase 3 clinical trial protocols and the cytisinicline clinical development program. Specifically, the FDA has agreed with the overall Phase 3 study designs that will utilize the simplified cytisinicline dosing schedule of 3.0 mg administered three times daily and the duration of 6 and 12 weeks of treatment. The FDA also agreed that the use of the newly-developed, single 3.0 mg cytisinicline tablet in the Phase 3 program was acceptable. * On January 13th, $ACHV announced the outcome of a study using Oracle’s high-performance cloud infrastructure to potentially improve the speed of drug discovery and development of new treatments. * Achieve Life Sciences has partnered with the University of Bristol to formulate molecules and potential treatments to combat addiction and neurological disorders based on their lead smoking cessation compound in development, cytisinicline. Building on this research and previously conducted studies, cloud-based computer simulations can now be utilized to evaluate the effectiveness of potential new treatments more efficiently and help to accelerate the pace of discovery * On February 6th, $ACHV announced thay have retained the FreeMind Group, an international consulting firm dedicated to assisting life science organizations secure non-dilutive funding. * Achieve and FreeMind will conduct a strategic assessment of potential non-dilutive funding opportunities from various public and private sources, followed by anticipated grant production and submission, to further the clinical development of cytisinicline in vaping, or e-cigarette, cessation. * April 13th, $ACHV announced that they have entered into definitive agreements for a private placement of its securities for gross proceeds of approximately $1.9 million, prior to deducting placement agent commissions and estimated offering expenses. * The private placement will be for up to 5,615,653 units at a price of $0.33 per unit, with each unit consisting of one share of common stock and a warrant to purchase 0.75 shares of common stock. The private placement will close in two tranches based on the execution of definitive documents on April 27, 2020 and April 28, 2020. The warrants for the first closing have an initial per share exercise price of $0.362, and the warrants for the second closing have an initial per share exercise price of $0.366. All warrants will be exercisable beginning on the six-month anniversary of the initial closing of the offering and will have a five-year term * The Company intends to use the proceeds from the private placement to fund clinical research and development, and for general working capital. * On march 11-14th, $ACHV took part in the SRNT 2020 conference to publish the positive results of their clinical trials
SRNT 2020 conference * $ACHV Phase 2b results show: * “254 smokers were randomized. All cytisinicline arms showed a greater reduction in cigarettes smoked within days of starting treatment. Despite the study not being powered to compare quit rates, CO-verified EOT, and prolonged abstinence (off-treatment, weeks 5 to 8) quit rates were significantly greater than those on placebo. For 3 mg tid, these were 54% and 30% respectively compared with 16% and 8% on placebo (Odds Ratios of 6.0 and 5.4). Cytisinicline (3mg tid) was well tolerated, with no AE’s reported by more than 6% (nausea, insomnia, abnormal dreams), vs placebo at 10%, 2%, 2%, respectively” * In conclusion, as stated in their presentation at the conference: * “: All cytisinicline dosing schedules led to clinically-relevant quit rates. The 3 mg tid group had slightly better abstinence rates than the other groups; had high treatment compliance (97.6%); and an adverse event frequency comparable to placebo. The simplified 3 mg tid dosing schedule for cytisinicline will be evaluated in phase 3 studies. The authors would like to thank the participating investigators, clinical staff and study subjects for their contributions.” * Here is a link to their SRNT meeting/conference
Negatives/risks of the business * As found on their recent 10-Q/K filing: * “Our current resources are insufficient to fund our planned operations for the next 12 months. We will continue to require substantial additional capital to continue our clinical development activities. Accordingly, we will need to raise substantial additional capital to continue to fund our operations from the sale of our securities, partnering arrangements, non-dilutive fundraising or other financing transactions in order to finance the commercialization of our product candidate” * “Our single product candidate, cytisinicline, has been in-licensed from a third party. We are required to continue to contract with Sopharma AD, or Sopharma, to continue our development of, and potential commercialization of, cytisinicline pursuant to a supply agreement with Sopharma. If the supply agreement with Sopharma is terminated, we will need to develop or acquire alternative supply and manufacturing capabilities for cytisinicline, which we may not be able to do on commercially viable terms or at all.” * “We are currently dependent on the potential development of a single product candidate, cytisinicline. We are still developing our sole product candidate, and cytisinicline cannot be marketed or sold in the United States or in foreign markets until regulatory approval has been obtained from the FDA or applicable foreign regulatory agencies. The process of obtaining regulatory approval is expensive and time consuming. The FDA and foreign regulatory authorities may never approve cytisinicline for sale and marketing, and even if cytisinicline is ultimately approved, regulatory approval may be delayed or limited in the United States or in other jurisdictions. Even if we are authorized to sell and market cytisinicline in one or more markets, there is no assurance that we will be able to successfully market cytisinicline or that cytisinicline will achieve market acceptance sufficient to generate profits. If we are unable to successfully develop and commercialize cytisinicline due to failure to obtain regulatory approval for cytisinicline, to successfully market cytisinicline, to generate profits from the sale of cytisinicline, or due to other risk factors outlined in this report, it would have material adverse effects on our business, financial condition, and results of operations as cytisinicline is currently our sole product candidate.” * “Clinical development is expensive, time consuming and involves significant risk. We cannot guarantee that any clinical trial will be conducted as planned or completed on schedule, if at all. A failure of one or more clinical trials can occur at any stage of development” * “Our product development program may not uncover all possible adverse events that patients who take cytisinicline or our other product candidates may experience. The number of subjects exposed to cytisinicline or our other product candidates and the average exposure time in the clinical development program may be inadequate to detect rare adverse events, or chance findings, that may only be detected once the product is administered to more patients and for greater periods of time” * “We expect to continue to rely on third parties to manufacture cytisinicline for use in clinical trials, and we intend to exclusively rely on Sopharma to produce and process cytisinicline, if approved. Our commercialization of cytisinicline could be stopped, delayed or made less profitable if Sopharma fails to obtain approval of government regulators, fails to provide us with sufficient quantities of product, or fails to do so at acceptable quality levels or prices.” * “We have until October 5, 2020, to regain compliance with the bid price requirement. In order to regain compliance, the bid price of our common stock must close at a price of at least $1.00 per share for a minimum of 10 consecutive trading days.”
The positives moving forward * Now I understand there are a lot of risks behind this company & I'll be honest, it worries me too. Especially since the entire company is riding behind one sole product. * That being said, the biggest positive is that so far, their clinical trials are proving to work * Here is a [link to their presentation regarding Phase 2b results](file:///C:/Users/llope/Downloads/ORCA-1%20SRNT-US%20Presentation-FINAL.pdf) that backs what I just mentioned. * Seeing that so far, its proving to work, they will begin phase 3 soon. As as that ends and things keep going as positive as they have gone so far with their trials, they will be ready to submit to the FDA for approval
Target Price/forecasts: * CNN Money sets a low estimate of $2 with a high estimate $10 * Tipranks sets the average target price at $6 with a high estimate of $10 * NASDAQ website sets the target price at $6 with a “strong buy” * The Wall Street Journal sets the median target price at $4.67 with a high estimate at $10
Final Thoughts/Comments * I’ll be perfectly honest, of all the DD i have done so far, i will admit that this is the most risky one so far because of all the risks they have publicly published in their SEC filing. * Despite all the negative risks, they are truly creating a drug that is showing to be very positive with those in use of it in the ongoing clinical trials. To back what i say, here is this article from the New England Journal of medicine that shows how effective Cytisinicline has been so far. * Because of the risks involved & with the current low trading price, I am comfortable with personally buying max 100 shares *(NOT $100)**. That being said, because they only have until October to reach compliance, I will hold until Oct. If they are not close to compliance or reach it, I will sell those shares. * Again, please remember, please read all the DD ive posted and please dig in deeper than what i have posted/mentioned. I want you guys to be informed so you can make the best decision possible on your own :)
Links to very important documents/videos I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you read * 10-Q Filing * 10-K filing * SRNT 2020 Conference * New England journal of medicine * New England Journal of medicine second article * corporate presentation * video presentation

2020.05.07 20:06 ivedied My notes from Governor Baker's Press Conference today (5/7)

These are notes I took while watching today's press conference. They are not perfect or comprehensive, but rather a brief summary for anyone who couldn't watch. If you want to watch the recording of the press conference, it's available on youtube. All press conferences are broadcast live on www.mass.gov/covid19-updates (the page is usually updated with the time of the press conference some time in the morning).
Most hospitals are asking for donations of personal protective equipment such as N95 respirator masks, safety goggles and paper gowns.
The American Red Cross says it is facing a "severe blood shortage" because of canceled blood drives, and it's asking healthy individuals to donate blood, platelets or AB elite plasma.

Please consider donating to this fundraiser for the Greater Boston Food Bank, which is being run by The Paper Mouse (a gift shop in West Newton). The shop is matching donations up to $5000 in addition to donating 20% of their May revenue.

2020.04.28 12:17 Fwoggie2 Covid-19 update Tuesday 28th April

Good morning from the UK. It’s Tuesday 28th April.

My wife got an email this morning from her travel insurance company; her coverage is about to expire apparently and the company wants to know if she wants to renew her travel insurance coverage. My wife says it's OK with her if we're uninsured for travel for a while...
(I had to resort to archive.is links today, sorry, the mod-bot was in a bad mood and it refused repeated re-submissions before I gave up and used archive.is instead to get around it).

I failed to mention yesterday that it was the humble shipping container’s 64th birthday; on 27th April 1956 Malcolm McLean loaded 58 trailer vans (what we now call containers) onto a converted world war 2 era oil tanker named SS Ideal-X and off it sailed from Newark to Houston. Watching it sail off into the distance, Freddy Fields, a top official of the International Longshoremen's Association was asked "What do you think of that new ship?" Fields replied, "I'd like to sink that sonofabitch." (Longshoremen are the people who load and unload ships). Longshoremen strikes ensued, but the cost of shipping dropped by a factor of 36 overnight. The age of the container had arrived and in a further visionary move McLean made available his container patents free of charge thus ensuring rapid adaption of global standards in relation to construction and size of the containers. McLean’s company (which ended up being called SeaLand) steadily grew and by the end of the 60s SeaLand was sending over 1,000 containers every month from the US to Vietnam alone for the US military. McLean parted ways with Sealand by 1977 but in 1978 his new company United States Lines placed construction orders with a shipyard for a then world record 4,400 TEU (Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit, a standard measurement in the industry) shipyard. Unfortunately United States Lines went bankrupt shortly after, a victim of very high oil prices at the time.
Last week the Korean container shipping line HMM named its latest container ship HMM Algecerias. Its capacity is 23,964 TEU; more than 5 times the size of the ship McLean ordered 42 years ago. It may be a long time though before HMM Algecerias has a heavily laden voyage; currently there is massive overcapacity in the container shipping industry according to the American Journal of Transportation which clarifies that Maersk has a container ship fleet with a capacity of nearly 4.2m TEUs, MSC has 3.7m TEU fleet capacity while COSCO, CMA-CGM, Hapag Lloyd, ONE and Evergreen all have fleets with over 1m TEU capacity each. Between them (and other smaller operators), they’ve idled 9.2% of the world’s fleet in the past few months because there’s not enough cargo to fill the ships and make them operationally profitable. As for Malcolm McLean - he died in New York in 2001 but the Sealand name lives on as a division of Maersk (it bought SeaLand in Decembe 1999); today SeaLand operates in the Americas. Personally, for several years now I’ve fancied building a home out of shipping containers (much to the amusement of my wife). Maybe I should have a chat with her about it again; I reckon that suitable containers must be really cheap now.
Anyway…

Virus news in depth


Coronavirus: Anger after Panorama programme claims government 'failed to stockpile crucial PPE' - Yahoo News is reporting (as is pretty much every UK news outlet today) on a BBC Panorama show that was aired last night. (For the benefit of non Brits, Panorama is a flagship in-depth investigative program that’s over 50 years old and held in high esteem particularly for a 1995 interview with Princess Diana). There has been anger from health experts after an investigation revealed the government failed to stockpile crucial personal protective equipment (PPE) ahead of the coronavirus pandemic says Yahoo News.
BBC Panorama found there were no gowns, visors, swabs and body bags in the government’s pandemic stockpile when COVID-19 reached the UK. It said vital items were left out of the stockpile when it was set up in 2009 and that the government ignored a warning from its own advisers to buy missing equipment. The programme also claimed the government downgraded its guidance on the severity of COVID-19 as late as 13 March so it could provide a lower level of PPE to health workers. The programme, “Has the Government Failed the NHS?”, claimed the government counted single surgical gloves instead of a pair as one item of PPE with paper towels and cleaning materials such as bleach also counted as units of PPE. One health worker told the programme: “Calling us heroes just makes it okay when we die.”
(Cont’d) COVID-19 was officially designated a High Consequence Infectious Disease (HCID) in January. In 2019, the Health and Safety Executive recommended that all healthcare workers wear a gown, FFP3 respirator mask and visor when dealing with HCIDs. But Panorama said the government downgraded its PPE guidance on 13 March to tell NHS workers they were safe to wear less protective aprons and basic surgical masks - and took steps to remove COVID-19 from its list of HCIDs on the same day. Rather than consult the experts who recommended categorising COVID-19 as HCID, however, the government instead asked its Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP), Panorama said. The programme claimed sources on that committee said the decision was, in part, a decision based on the low availability of PPE.
(Cont’d) Dr Gabriel Scally, a former regional director of public health and honorary professor of public health at the University of Bristol, said the programme was “totally damning” for the government. Labour MP Zarah Sultana said the programme “showed the incredible bravery of NHS staff”. Charlotte Villiers, professor of law at the University of Bristol, tweeted: “How the government can survive and stay in power following that is unfathomable. They are drenched with guilt.”
The episode in question is available to UK residents on iplayer.

Supply chain news in depth


**USDA (**US Department of Agriculture) let millions of pounds of food rot while food-bank demand soared - Politico reports that Tens of millions of pounds of American-grown produce is rotting in fields as food banks across the country scramble to meet a massive surge in demand, a two-pronged disaster that has deprived farmers of billions of dollars in revenue while millions of newly jobless Americans struggle to feed their families. While other federal agencies quickly adapted their programs to the coronavirus crisis, the Agriculture Department took more than a month to make its first significant move to buy up surplus fruits and vegetables — despite repeated entreaties. Images of farmers destroying tomatoes, piling up squash, burying onions and dumping milk shocked many Americans who remain fearful of supply shortages. At the same time, people who recently lost their jobs lined up for miles outside some food banks, raising questions about why there has been no coordinated response at the federal level to get the surplus of perishable food to more people in need, even as commodity groups, state leaders and lawmakers repeatedly urged the Agriculture Department to step in. Demand at food banks has increased an average of 70 percent, according to Feeding America, which represents about 200 major food banks across the country. The group estimates that 40 percent of those being served are new to the system.
(Cont’d) In mid-April, USDA unveiled a long-awaited $19 billion aid program with $3 billion set aside to buy excess food, a pot of money that would cover a major ramp-up of fresh produce purchases, along with dairy and meats. But federal officials predicted it would take the better part of a month before that food is packed and shipped to food banks and other nonprofits in need. At that point, it will be too late for many produce growers who saw a huge drop in demand right at the peak of their season. “By the time that comes through, it won’t help Florida,” said Brittany Lee, a blueberry farmer and executive director of the Florida Blueberry Growers Association. Blueberry prices are about half of what they were this time last year, she said. The precipitous drop in demand left many growers with no choice but to trash excess food or leave it in the fields because the cost of picking, packing and storing the crops would only put them further in the hole. Some with more resources in hand took on the cost of harvesting and donating the food themselves, but the gut-wrenching reality is that crops are being abandoned on an unprecedented scale.
(Cont’d) Paul Allen, co-owner of RC Hatton Farms, is currently disking hundreds of acres of cabbage — a process that grinds crops into the soil — because there’s simply no market for it. It's heartbreaking to watch, but the cabbage he grows is typically used for coleslaw at restaurant chains like KFC. Allen estimates he’s left about 8 million pounds of cabbage and 4.5 million pounds of green beans in the fields. “We’ve been devastated,” Allen said. His company has already donated hundreds of thousands of pounds of vegetables to food banks. The company also sent containers of produce to the Bahamas and paid for the cost of harvesting to make it all happen. Now, Allen says, he must decide how many of his crops are better left unpicked, not knowing when much of his customer base will be able to reopen for business. “Do I keep taking on more losses?” he said, noting that vegetable growers have already spent several thousands of dollars per acre before harvest. “But if I stop growing food for our country, that’s a bigger problem yet.”
(Cont’d) Produce industry leaders, including Allen, are also furious that USDA plans to impose payment limits for the rest of its aid to farmers affected by coronavirus. The department said in mid-April that agricultural producers would be limited to $125,000 per commodity or $250,000 total to help compensate them for damages as it hands out $16 billion in direct payments. “We begged them not to put a cap on it,” Allen said. Farmers who grow fruits and vegetables have extremely high costs per acre and often plant at such a large scale that the payments won’t even begin to cover their losses. It typically costs less than $700 per acre to grow commodity soybeans. It costs more than $4,000 per acre to grow cabbage. “What is fair is not always equal,” he said. While $250,000 is a lot of money for most Americans, it represents about one day's harvest for RC Hatton. The scale of produce waste is staggering. Farmers in Florida, which provides much of the fresh produce to the eastern half of the U.S. during the winter and spring, left about 75 percent of the lettuce crop unharvested, along with significant portions of the state’s sweet corn, cabbage and squash. Up to 250 million pounds of tomatoes could end up left in the fields, according to the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services. Florida officials estimate produce growers there have taken a half a billion dollar hit. In California, the industry is projected to lose more than $1 billion per month.

2020.03.09 03:38 TheNormalAlternative THE NEW COLOSSUS FESTIVAL - Lower East Side (3/11 - 3/16)

IMPORTANT UPDATE (THURSDAY 3/12)

NEW YORK HAS IMPLEMENTED RESTRICTIONS ON PUBLIC GATHERINGS. Under these restrictions:
(1) Music Venues with max capacity > 500 are forced to remain closed and cancel scheduled shows
(2) Venues with max capacity < 500 will be required to cap the number of patrons at 50% of the establishment's max capacity.
Because of these restrictions, Friday night's showcase featuring A Place to Bury Strangers and Public Practice at Bowery Ballroom has been cancelled. Festival Organizers have announced they intend to reschedule this show in a week or two at Pianos. All remaining New Colossus Festival shows will continue as scheduled, but entry/tickets may be limited. Additionally, many bands listed below have had to cancel.
******
The second annual New Colossus Festival is coming up next weekend and will be taking over the Lower East Side with indie showcases featuring primarily foreign bands and artists - mostly Canada and the U.K., but also Australia, France, New Zealand, Norway, Spain and Sweden. The festival allows traveling up-and-coming indie rock, dream pop and electronic artists to share their music with NYC the week before SXSW (cough).
Most shows will be held in bar backrooms at the likes of Arlene's Grocery, Piano's etc., but the capstone event features New York City's A Place To Bury Strangers and Public Practice with British post-punks LIFE at Bowery Ballroom.
You can buy a full-access badge for $100 (+ fees). Alternatively, tickets to individual shows should be available at door (generally $10-15 each), but tickets are not guaranteed (e.g. some shows may sell out) and some shows are only open to badge-holders. At least, assuming it doesn't get cancelled due to the Coronavirus a la SXSW.
You can directly access information about the nearly weeklong event through these links:
But I'll do you one better republishing the full calendar below, with links to the dedicated Facebook event page for each (cuz I had little better to do with my weekend and this post was long overdue... and probably will be a waste of time - stupid COVID19).

2020.02.26 09:18 gibbonsray1 Best things to do in Aylesbury

The shire town of Buckinghamshire is on the sting of the Chiltern Hills within the Aylesbury Vale’s verdant farmland. Aylesbury has some strong regional attractions just like the County Museum, alongside a state-of-the-art theatre that opened in 2010. The children’s author Roald Dahl was a Buckinghamshire resident and is remembered with an exquisite hands-on children’s gallery, attached to the County Museum. Aylesbury features a place in pop history, because the Friars Club here welcomed a number of the most important music acts of the 70s, and was where David Bowie performed as Ziggy Stardust for the primary time. There’s a lovingly rendered statue for Bowie under the exchange on the open-air market. Let’s explore the simplest things to try to to in Aylesbury: 1. Buckinghamshire County Museum 📷 This museum explores many strands of Buckinghamshire’s human and explanation and is housed during a row of lovely flat-fronted buildings on Church Street. The oldest portion of the complex may be a timber-framed guildhall from the 16th-century, with rare murals intact. The museum has exhibitions for archaeology, industrial history, textiles, agriculture, and geology. One of the key pieces may be a Cubitt car, manufactured in Aylesbury within the 1920s and one among only six surviving models within the world. There’s also a little but valuable collection of Egyptology, also as Prehistoric stone tools, Roman coins, and Medieval pottery. The costume collection is vast, spanning 500 years, and there’s an ever-changing exhibition of British painting and sculpture within the Buckinghamshire gallery. In the carriage house behind the museum is that the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery, which we’ll cover later.
2. Market Square 📷 This long, rectangular square within the heart of Aylesbury has fine buildings and interesting pockets of history all around. On the southeast end, besides the striking exchange is that the Aylesbury Crown Court, which shut its doors for the last time in 2018. This Palladian building was completed in 1740, and in 1963 was where the culprits of the good Train Robbery were sentenced. In front of the court may be a statue for the soldier and politician Charles Cavendish, 3rd Baron Chesham, who served within the Second Boer War. The bronze lions beside his statue come from the Rothschild estate at Waddesdon Manor and are here since 1888. At the other end of the square, there’s a narrow passageway through to the King’s Head Inn, one among the oldest pubs within the South of England. Check out the recommended hotels in Aylesbury, England 3.Waddesdon Manor 📷 A miniature Château de Chambord within the Aylesbury Vale, Waddesdon Manor may be a neo-Renaissance mansion built for Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild between 1874 and 1889. Baron Ferdinand used the house to point out of his invaluable collections of 18th-century French furniture, Beauvais and Gobelins tapestries, Sèvres ceramics, exquisite paneling, Savonnerie carpets and paintings by Reynolds, Gainsborough and 17th-century Dutch masters. Visit the gardens, designed by French landscape gardener Elie Lainé and intended to form an impression on soiree guests, with an extravagant parterre, statuary, and fountains. 4. Buckinghamshire Railway Centre 📷 A few miles into the rolling countryside at Quanton Road railroad station, the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre may be a locomotive museum that opens for Steaming and Static Days. There also are miniature trains operating on lately. On Static Days (Mondays and Tuesdays, also as Wednesdays outside school holidays) you'll still enter the museum’s railway shed to ascertain a powerful sort of steam locomotives, sort of an LSWR 0298 Class from 1874 and an operational Metropolitan Railway E Class inbuilt 1898. Take a glance at the calendar, as there are regular special events, displaying vintage diesel engines, mail vehicles, tractors, and fire engines. 5. The Chilterns 📷 East and south of Aylesbury are that the chalk escarpment of the Chiltern Hills, cutting diagonally across the countryside for nearly 50 miles. The range is conserved as a neighborhood of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offers scenic and infrequently stiff bike trails and walking paths. You could head to hike a neighborhood of the Ridgeway, a National Trail following the course of a path along the hilltops that have been walked since Prehistory.

Coombe Hill 📷 The highest and perhaps the simplest viewpoint within the Chilterns may be a few short miles south at Coombe Hill. This patch of “Chilterns Countryside” was once ashore owned by Chequers, the country residence for the Prime Minister. 7. Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery 📷 In a handsome former carriage house, the Roald Dahl Children’s Gallery harnesses the much-loved author’s books and characters for educational exhibits about literature, history and science. The museum is particularly immersive for teenagers because the exhibits feature art by Quentin Blake, who produced the illustrations for Roald Dahl’s books. Children can discover Willy Wonka’s inventions, study sound with the BFG, crawl through Mr. Fox’s tunnel and study “minibeasts” inside the enormous Peach. There are many interactivities, allowing kids to seem on TV, freeze their own shadow and magnify fleas. The attraction is travel by the Buckinghamshire County Museum and features a shop, peaceful garden and cafe. 8. Waterside Theatre 📷 The marvelous 1,200-seater Waterside Theatre opened in 2010, with a design evoking the rolling Chiltern Hills. Set on the Grand Union Canal, the venue had been within the pipeline for nearly a decade and came at a price of £47 million. This comes with state-of-the-art acoustics which will be adjusted consistent with the event. Every taste is catered for at the Waterside, so there are touring West End musicals, established musicians (pop, jazz and classical), tribute acts, stand-up comedians, opera, ballet, and contemporary dance. You can also watch regular live screenings from the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Theatre and therefore the Royal opera. 9. Grand Union Canal 📷 When the Aylesbury arm of the Grand Union Canal opened in 1814 it brought the heavy industry to the town for the primary time. There had been an idea to increase the Grand Union Canal through to the Kennet & Avon Canal to the south. This would have created a huge network across the West to Bristol, but this was never realized due to a scarcity of water. The Grand Union Canal is now the preserve of delight boaters and walkers. In September 2018 Aylesbury placed on its inaugural Waterside Festival, with boat trips, live music and a continental market with quite 30 stalls. 10. St Mary the Virgin’s Church On the west shoulder of the town center in an atmospheric graveyard ringed with historic houses, the parish church may be a Grade I-listed building. The site is believed to travel back to Anglo-Saxon times, although this church is rooted within the early 13th century. St Mary’s may be a prominent landmark in Aylesbury, with a fine tower that you simply can see from almost anywhere within the town. That spire is assumed to be the 17th-century and dates from the reign of Charles II. Head in to ascertain the 14th-century chapel, which is on the north transept and features a remarkable sedilla (stone seat) with an arch. Also within the north transept, you’ll find a stunning 17th-century alabaster monument to a Sir Lee, Master of the Armouries under Elizabeth I.

2020.02.14 00:00 Maichin_Civire [BATTLE] The Great Arab War, Phase One

War in Syria has begun. Its enemies arriving from every side, syrian military would have much trouble defending its territories, with nearly everyone trying to slice a cake of its territory. With action nearly everywhere, a lot has happened within a month - and not exactly how the war planners expected it to go by.

WEST

Exerpt from Lebanese civil war:
Of the 21,000 men who were tasked with assaulting Syria, fewer than 10,000 ever crossed the border; of those, fewer than 5,000 remained loyal to the Lebanese regime. Banners of the SSNP flooded the streets of Beirut as tens of thousands of supporters demanded withdrawal from Syria and new elections be held. As the Arab-Nationalist movements of the 1950s have not begun yet, many of the leftist parties fell behind the SSNP as their Eagles of the Whirlwind launched an assault on the Presidential Palace. While the attempt failed with heavy casualties on both sides, the Presidential Palace is now surrounded by thousands of protesters and revolutionaries as most of the military defects. The Beirut Infantry Brigade which would've been able to suppress most of these riots was one of the most heavily affected by desertion once they crossed into Syria.
The only major battle of the invasion occurred near the small settlement of Al Zabadani. The 3rd Infantry Division, heavily depleted by desertion only two days into the invasion, reached the town of Al Zabadani in good order, with lead elements securing it on the night of September 3rd, 1951. On that same night, elements of the Syrian 3rd Division arrived, the Syrian Division was forced to split its numbers to contain both the Homs push and the Damascus push, however, it arrived in good order to the field of battle with the 2nd, 7th, and 15th Infantry Brigades arriving with 3,700 men total, as well as 20 T-34 tanks and two IS-2 tanks. Lebanese commander Usman Bina ordered his men to secure the outskirts of the town and hoped to tactically defend before taking the initiative to strike. Unfortunately, Syrian commander Harb Afzal maneuvered his tanks and the 2nd Infantry Brigade along the ridge lines parallel to the town, setting up his tanks to act as artillery against the Lebanese defenders. Knowing that desertion would only grow worse unless a quick victory reassured the troops, General Bina ordered a general assault of the 4,200 soldiers in the town, alongside their 20 operational and combat effective Comet tanks to break through the Syrian center. This tactic was surprisingly effective, and Afzal was forced to dig in on the defensive as the 7th and 15th Infantry Brigades were driven back nearly two miles over the day of intense fighting. The Lebanese had failed to rout the Syrians however, and word of a revolution ongoing only inspired more men to desert. Eventually, with less than 2,000 men combat-effective, and only 3 tanks, General Bina was forced to withdraw in good order to Beirut to protect the President and the government. With that in mind, this part of Syrian border was secured - for now. 3rd Division was securing the border for now without much fighting, preferring to watch events unfold on the other side of the border. What was more surprising, was the fact of mass defection of Lebanese and them voluntarily joining Syrian military. By the end of the fight, the 3rd Division grew by over 15% in terms of manpower.
SOUTH
In the south, forces of Jordan were preparing to strike into Damascus and taking the heartland of Syria. Further east, another part of their forces was preparing for a swift strike to take Palmyra and cut the road leading to Iraq, supported by nearly fifteen thousand saudi “irregulars”, whose combat capability was questionable. Nearly thirty thousand troops, supported by tanks, self-propelled guns and aviation were standing against nine thousand people of the 14th Division of Syrian army. Theoretically hopelessly outnumbered by enemy, syrians prepared for an inevitable attack, obvious from the moment of general mobilization that led to local exercises.
However, problems began to mount from the get go for Jordanians. Occupied with their rused exercises, they used up a lot of munitions and fuel. Units got mixed up, and no clean hierarchy could be issued for the invasion day. The saudi irregulars were causing regular trouble, often leading to the necessary intervention of military police. When the date of invasion came around, not a single regiment was fully prepared, but the timetables were strict and not prepared for any miscalculations. The invasion commenced.
The second big problem of Jordanians was their equipment. While it was supported by sizable armored force, the equipment of the soldiers was questionable at best. While some of them were equipped with bolt action or semi-automatic carbines and rifles, most of them had submachine pistols, with effective range not exceeding one hundred meters. Most of saudi irregulars “lost” their weapons, and as such were sent in as support troops, to replace the losses occuring in the battles.
Third problem - same as everywhere else - was morale. Many troops had no idea why this war was starting in the first place. Why were they fighting their brothers? Just three years ago they were fighting Israel together. They’ve lost many friends and brothers, but stood together. Now their leadership was telling them to kill their long missed friends. It didn’t aid them in the fighting.
On the other hand, Syrians were determined to defend themselves. With enemies everywhere, they had nowhere to run. Cornered enemies will fight with extreme bitterness, to the end - and so they did.
On the 3rd september early morning, the first jordanian troops moved in to Syria under artillery barrage. Quickly arriving in first villages, they met no real resistance, and moved at pretty fast, continuous pace. The trouble began when the spearhead of the invasion got to the suburbs of Daara. Expecting a quick win, they weren’t prepared for a strong, organized defense of syrian army. While small in size, it effectively halted the attack on the city. On its flanks, similar attacks by jordanian army were happening, but only a few cities were actually taken, and in a few cases Syrians even managed to expel jordanian forces. On the western flank, a small part of jordanian army managed a breakthrough through syrian lines, and moved in towards golan heights, attempting to cut border access from Syria to Israel. That movement, however, was intercepted by the arrival of syrian reinforcements, now relieved from core defense due to lebanese blunder. Faced by completely fresh forces, jordanians had no choice but to withdraw, leaving some of their heavier equipment behind. Syrians managed to stabilize the defense line, with the furthest point being Daara, which stood resilient to multiple botched attacks led by jordanians and saudi irregulars.
On the eastern flank, jordanian forces had much more success, while advancing through the desert. The continuous defence attacks by syrian forces did incur some damages, but not enough to halt the offensive. Only jordanian running out of ammunition and fuel - and need to replenish the already halted offensive forces in the west - led to the order of hold, and for now, they are not advancing, heavily relying on airplanes dropping water and supplies in the middle of desert. Still occasionally attacked by Syrian air force, they cannot rest and have to be on the lookout constantly.

EAST

From the east, the situation looked even more grim. A singular syrian infantry division had to defend against an onslaught of nearly entire iraqi military, and to try to defend for long enough for reinforcements to arrive. The main preparations were done along the main routes leading into the country, to await the inevitable.
With the main push of iraqi military, Syrians moved into defence. Initially overwhelmed, they were able to stay composed, with very slow progress of iraqis thanks to need to keep up with rather slow tanks, and mount defence on the al-Mayadin-al-Hasaka axis. When the first iraqi troops arrived, the situation had diametrically changed - because that was the moment when Turks began their assault. While at the beginning the reports were conflicting, it soon became clear - turks were engaging in regular warfare with iraqis. Soon enough, the main shift of iraqi attention went north, to a massive push by turkish military, who suddenly found itself against a much better armed opponent, who wasn’t willing to give up any ground. Following orders from HQ, Turks weren’t going to give up either - and so the two sides began fighting each other, giving the syrian military much needed breathing space.

NORTH

Turkey agreed to help SSNP to retain their independence and sovereignity. Seeing the massive onslaught from all sides, it was natural that they would move in and aid their somewhat hidden ally, and so, on the day of invasion, turkish forces have crossed border and entered syrian territory. With the excuse of protecting the syrian minorities against jihadi forces, they quickly connected with Syrian army, and bolstered their waning defences in east and, after some time, in the south. And while those parts of Syria were more or less holding, it was the small part of Syria that drew the most attention.
NORTHEAST
On that front, a proper warfare erupted between two undeclared enemies. Both Turkey and Iraq pushed to secure their objectives, and none yielding - first big battle erupted north of al-Hasaka, where Iraqis attempted to encircle the city. Their spearheads were intercepted by turkish forces, who in turn attacked them from behind, attempting to encircle them first. In response to that, iraqi command ordered troops from south of al-Hasaka to move north to intercept the turkish prong of attack, and remove the threat. Both sides kept adding in formations, until there was not much space left - and battle was ongoing for a long time. While Iraqis had an edge in their equipment, Turks had an edge thanks to numerical superiority. After a week of fighting, however, the battle devolved to trench warfare, with neither side capable of capital push. al-Hasaka became a ghosttown, just a minor stronghold divided in half, each of them controlled by two enemies. On one side Iraqi, on other combined forces of Turkey and Syria - no side yielding or willing to retreat. After some time, Iraqi attempted to encircle turkish forces east of al-Hasaka, yet their attack died out when reaching more and more entrenched defenders, forcing them to retreat to their initial lines.

AIR

The situation in the air was a peculiar one.
Syrian Air Force was obviously overwhelmed by the enemy presence. Bolstered by british arrival in Jordan, they didn’t have much of a chance - possibly. Even the newly arrived MiG-15’s wouldn’t do much. Or would they?
First aerial combat of the war happened just after Jordanians began their push into Syria. Nearly one hundred ww2-era jordanian planes were supporting their armies in the ground attacks. No syrian airplanes were to be seen, and it was suspected that the SyAF overslept the invasion. At 9am, british strategic force, composed of 20 B-29’s, escorted by 16 Gloster Meteors took to the sky, with their target being the Damascus Airport. With the priority target being hangars and airstrip, they loaded small bombs, to maximise the damage. Quickly climbing to high altitude within the jordanian air space, soon they headed north, to attack it.
At the same time, north of Damascus, a flight of fifteen double-seater MiG-15’s took to the sky. Relying on just a few radars in their employ, they were quickly able to pick up building formation. Syrian pilots with very low experience wouldn’t win that - even with a potent machine that MiG-15 was, they just lacked experience and proficiency in flying them, having just switched from old spitfires and even older planes.
But they weren’t alone.
Soviet instructors, which arrived in Syria five months prior, were supposed to train syrian pilots in the usage of the airplanes. However, when the war began, they found themselves stranded in Syria, and would most probably be shot on sight by any invading force. All of them being veterans of world war 2, they did what they could best - they began to fight. In a hasty ceremony, a commanding officer of the air base granted syrian citizenship to all thirty instructors, awarding them officer patents in the next second, and assigning to flying the MiGs in yet another. While fifteen pilots were relegated directly to other airfields housing the shiny new airplanes, the first group took to the sky with the trainees onboard - to give them some proper, field training.
After just fifteen minutes, MiGs were on interception altitude, watching for their targets. Soon enough, they saw distinct contrails of B-29’s heading their way. Slow, with a heavy load of bombs, and heading straight to their targets, they were easy pickings. British pilots, not expecting any heavy resistance, were unprepared for this attack. The Migs split into three groups of five planes each, and attacked at the same time from three sides in the front. After the first firing pass, six bombers began falling from the sky, throwing the rest into disarray, and fighters scrambling to pursue migs. That was, however, next to impossible; Gloster Meteors were inferior to Migs in nearly all fields, and as such, the raid was called off, and sent back. Nearly the same thing happened, when jordanian mosquitos attempted a raid on the Damascus power plant. Surprised by angry buzzing jet fighters, inexperienced and poorly prepared jordanian pilots made their hasty retreat, dropping their loads wherever they could. In a surprising turn of events, Syria managed to gain an upper hand in aerial combat - with invaders attacking mostly at night, to avoid being easily detected, and running from most engagements.
The most notable dogfight of the war occurred on 16th September, when No. 101 squadron, flying brand new English Electric Canberra jet fighters, was intercepted by a combined group of 24 MiG-15’s over Homs. Despite being in numerical disadvantage, they managed to shoot down two of the migs, however were quickly forced to retreat after losing four of their own. Lack of experience with this new plane on british side led to eventual failure, and soon most of the planes were grounded.
Rest of the syrian air force didn’t have much luck; most of it was destroyed by the second week, nonetheless it managed to inflict some losses. With the turkish planes flying mostly over territory where their troops were present, they are supporting high-flying MiGs. There were some bombing attacks by Syrian Air Force, though. Most notably, a pair of B-24 ground attack planes were loaded with bombs and sent to Jordan. With the flight happening at night, they remained undetected up until they arrived over Amman. Under heavy anti-air fire, they managed to drop their payload - over three and a half tonnes of bombs each - right on Royal Hashemite Court. Huge explosions nearly completely destroyed the building - engulfing the planes themselves, which fell to the ground as thousands of elements.

EPILOGUE

First phase of war has ended, and the next is to come. Invasion had massive implications everywhere - mainly in Jordan and Iraq, beyond obvious civil war in Lebanon. Many people were questioning themselves, why are they even at war? Was the coup in Syria so important, as to begin a new, long war? War itself devolved to trench warfare, with no side being able to make any significant gains, neither defenders, nor the attackers. With an undeclared war in the north, the conflict was to become much, much hotter.
Situation in Syria, however, improved; suddenly, syrians found themselves fighting people who they were allied with just two years prior. They weren’t brothers anymore, they weren’t friends; fellow arab nations decided to forfeit the arab unity for superficial politics. The war has brought many people back to reality - their existence was in danger. If they wouldn’t defend themselves, no one would. They had to react - and they had to react quickly. Suddenly, they weren’t sunni, shia, alawite, or something else; while maintaining their religious identity, they were Syrian first.
Current situation. Black lines - frontlines between warring forces.
