FSX Friday Update On Saturday

Filed under: FSX — lbej @ 17:20

This week was all about differentiation within the Family Stock Index, with some phenomenal performers and some phenomenal stinkers.  The FSX closed on 4/30 at 1048.47, and its five-day gain of 2.0% was in contrast to the 2.5% drop in the S&P 500 over that time.  I would attribute this outperformance primarily to the FSX being underweight financials relative to the S&P, but maybe it’s just that my family is awesomer than yours.  Also, if anyone is wondering whether Goldman Sachs is a buy here at $145, the answer is NO.  The jig is up.  GS is not a value play, it is a falling knife.  Someone’s got to take the fall, fair or unfair.  Maybe JPM and MS are just as guilty but I don’t think it’s going to matter.  Arthur Andersen, anyone?

Most up:

  • LEI (Lucas) +66% (On top of 14% last week.  Did he perfect cold fusion recently?)
  • THOR (Justin) +30% (The market likes journalism?  Since when?)
  • WILC (Wilson) +3.9% (The market is betting Lulu will be the focus of the Pet Nasty War.  I wouldn’t be so sure.)

Most down:

  • JOE (Jo-Jo) -9.8% (Maybe the chicken is planning something nefarious.)
  • LEE -12.7% (The market doesn’t like my prospects in the Pet Nasty War.)
  • LULU -13.8% (It likes hers even less.)
