The Current Market
Instead of a deep-dive into one company, I am going to be giving brief thoughts on the economy, trade ideas for the current market, and a few long term investment ideas.
Due to the rise in interest rates, the economy is going to keep slowing down. This will eventually ease inflation, but it will throw the recession into a recession.
I believe that the recession will not be as bad as people think, but it will ultimately still be a recession.
There are two Peter Lynch quotes that really help me navigate a time period like this.

“If you spend more than 13 minutes analyzing economic and market forecasts, you've wasted 10 minutes. Your job is to find great companies that are undervalued.”
The people who make all the money in the stock market are focused on finding great companies and rare opportunities.
To sum this up, if you put all your time and focus on finding great investments, it will not matter what the Federal Reserve does in 3-5 years.

The support for the S&P 500 ($SPY) is at $396 and $392.
As you can tell, the bulls and bears are in a big battle right now over this $400 number.
If you are an options trader, I would make sure to keep those numbers in the back of my mind.

Keep in mind, this stock has been the subject of a lot of bad news recently. If it can somehow get some good news then WATCH OUT. However, it is a very risky play.
The stock currently sits at $6.47.
