A weekly roundup of tastylive videos offers the best trading tips from the network’s wealth of financial shows

  • Tom Sosnoff can't stand Blackrock's newest press release.
  • Elon Musk's compensation package could have massive ripples for founders.
  • tastylive's newest study finds an edge for options traders.
  • Are you wasting time on fundamental analysis?

Why listening to Blackrock could be a mistake

On Monday, BlackRock (BLK), the financial titan, declared unwavering confidence in its AI-focused investment collection.

This proclamation has sparked a fiery debate, with trading strategist Tom Sosnoff challenging the integrity and intentions behind BlackRock's bullish stance. Sosnoff contends that such a declaration from BlackRock is not only self-interested but also ethically questionable.

While BlackRock's timing raises eyebrows—choosing to broadcast optimism when the market is peaking rather than during a slump—your focus should remain on the broader horizon. It's essential to consider the advice of Chris Vecchio, who brings our attention to the macroeconomic forces that truly have the potential to shift the market's tides.

Remember, fellow traders, don't get swayed by the noise. While giants like BlackRock make their moves, it's the strategic, well-informed decisions that count. Keep your eyes on the macroeconomic indicators that Vecchio highlights and let those guide your trading journey. 

Could Tesla claw back some of Elon Musk's pay?

A seismic shift occurred in the corporate governance landscape when a Delaware judge invalidated the colossal compensation package of none other than Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla (TSLA).

This groundbreaking decision has ignited a fiery debate between trading titans Tom Sosnoff and Dylan Ratigan, tackling the contentious issue: should a deal once struck be sacrosanct, or does the sheer magnitude of Musk's remuneration raise red flags?

The crux of the argument zeroes in on the potential perils of unchecked power that potentially allows founders and CEOs like Musk to craft compensation agreements devoid of limitations or performance stipulations. This sparks a broader conversation about the potential exploitation of shareholders and the erosion of their rights, a particularly acute concern in the era of passive investing and watered-down voting power.

This pivotal discussion underscores the urgent need for robust checks and balances within the realms of corporate governance. The goal? To rein in exorbitant pay packages and safeguard the interests of shareholders like you.

For the trading community, this isn't just a matter of fairness; it's the cornerstone of a healthy capitalist ecosystem. Sosnoff and Ratigan are championing the cause of shareholder activism, urging you to take a stand and ensure your voice is heard. As traders and investors, your participation is crucial in maintaining market integrity and ensuring that the scales of corporate power are balanced.

This is why fundamental analysis might be failing you

Fundamental analysis is the use of external data or other information to determine the value of a stock or commodity and use those values to make trading decisions—and Tom Sosnoff can’t stand it.

Chris Vecchio has spent the past year articulating how his hours of fundamental analysis and research, paired with tasty’s probabilistic mechanics, could be a boon for traders. The two traders debate the merits of fundamental analysis alongside Anton Kulikov and Jacob Perlman, on this special presentation from tasty.
