Quick look at the week ahead

Another exceedingly quiet week ahead, with nothing of note on the Philippine or American market schedules, except that the American markets have Monday off to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

MB BOTTOM-LINE: This is another great day to revisit your thesis and review your portfolio, take a deep dive into a trading or market concept that you’ve been meaning to learn more about, or dig down deep into the financials of a company. That last one is what I’ll be doing in recognition of my 2024 theme of “Preparation”; my goal is to learn a lot more about a relatively small handful of stocks (around 5) related to my thesis so that I can trade events and price drops and squeeze out some extra percentage points. I have no idea how this year will play out, so I want to be ready for anything.
