by: SA Gil Weinreich

Summary

Ian Bezek on the déjà vu of “crazy mortgages,” planting the seeds of the next crisis.

Sami Karam on why investors can’t win with hedge funds: they don’t hedge and they overcharge.

In like fashion, see also Jesse Felder's brief rebuttal of permabull professor Jeremy Siegel's argument that we're only in the "first inning" in the ascent of dividend-paying stocks. Felder's charts bear eloquent testimony to the manic nature of today's stock market.

Wishing our readers a meaningful Memorial Day.
