Stocks – Ideas and Musings

Context Therapeutics (NASDAQ:CNTX)

The price is currently at $2. A low was put in before their earnings release on May 11th, hitting a price of $1.27. But since then, a higher low has formed and CNTX looks set to continue. $2.40 remains a pivot area from previous price action.

If the price rises higher than this, $2.80 was resistance on the last major high and would likely see selling at this level. Some consolidation at this level before continuation would be healthy on a move up.

FX – Is the USD too richly valued?

Short USD/JPY

Personally, we feel as a team that that US yields are reaching the limits. The 10yr trades at 3.4%, with the curve inverted between 2 and 5 years. This is usually a sign that a recession is on the horizon. Therefore, we don’t think US yields can move much higher. This should act as a natural top for USD.

When we combine this to the overbought technical picture, things start to marry up much better for a USD/JPY short than they did a month or two ago. It is on this basis that we feel more comfortable putting a trade on.

Dividend yield is a key ratio for Income Investors. Dividend yield represents the stock’s latest annual dividend as a percentage of the current stock price.


Whilst both the stock price and the dividend of a company change over time, the ratio is a good starting point to compare the relative valuation of different stocks, especially if you are looking for an indication of which companies could pay a consistent level of stock income in your portfolio regardless of market performance.
