Should you short SPX on Monday upon a GREXIT?

I wouldn’t be so fast jumping the gun and short this market. Futures reacted very negatively on the Greek referendum announced by an irresponsible socialist government. Not only Greeks cannot afford the referendum, the whole EU cannot afford losses from Greeks. Although Greece is posting a nice drama (or tragic comedy actually) I believe all Continue reading →

PPL spun off to a new Talen Energy. Shall I keep it or sell it?
