  • Durable Goods [View news story]
    If you have a broker like E-trade or whatever, they present tabular and graphic data on these indices going back a year or more. Far more informative than just one number. Look at Scott Grannis's analysis (calafia beach pundit on SA) for the best analysis going.

  • Friedrich Hayek And Milton Friedman Predicted This Economic Crisis [View article]
    Shub (?) I always pay extra attention to Indian analysis. The scholars in your nation are far more wise in the ways of the world than any in China or the West. It has been clear to me since the early 2000s that the FED was holding interest rates too low, to steal from retired folks and savers (sometimes known as republicans) and give it to the young and financially promiscuous millenials (sometimes known as democrats).

  • New York AG probing speeds at big broadband providers [View news story]
    Coming from a state (and many other states) that can't process permits, licenses, regulations, and other bureaucratic gobbledygook at anything faster than glacial pace, they sure have a lot of nerve.

  • European Dream Turns Into A Nightmare [View article]
    It might be a nightmare for Europe, but it s a dream come true for America if we use it as the exemplar of failure of fabian/keynesian/kenyan socialism.

  • Congress gears up for another battle over Ex-Im Bank [View news story]
    Pathetic crony capitalism at its worst, the "republican" led house should plainly and simply refuse to provide any spending, and let it DIE. That they won't explains why people are fed up with RINOs and wannabe-conservatives.

  • Is China Fudging Its GDP Figures? The SF Fed Weighs In [View article]
    Come on folks it is the wrong season in the Northern Hemisphere for the sap to be rising in our intellectual trees (forget the forest when it comes to China). Analysts and "journalists" are so cowed by Beijing and held in thrall from their college days reading Mao's Little Red Book, that any pretense of skepticism disappeared decades ago. You would think that a chain of "empty million people megacities," fully incorporated into GDP as government purchases, would be enough to suggest the whole place is a scam.

    What the US should adapt as foreign economic, military, and moral policy are isolating acts, confinement, and laws the hasten the collapse of the communist regime. Then, since we "owe" the commies about 550 trillion dollars or whatever, when the old order disappears we can just cancel the debt since it is to a (now) non existent entity. That's what ***I*** call stimulus!

  • A Pessimistic View On Big Oil [View article]
    Nice reference to a 2007 "EU" (or as I call it, the EEEEEEEWWWWW!) directive. If every refugee from the middle east carried a couple barrels of oil, maybe that would help that pathetic union to meet its energy needs!

    Stick to your comments about increasing competitiveness of solar and wind. We're gonna need to use more fuels to keep us warm as the planet continues to cool.

  • IBM Continues To Crumble [View article]
    ======The fact is IBM reports in dollars and that means it has to take the hit from the dollar's strength against other currencies.<=====

    Unless they are smart enough to hedge. And if they are not smart enough to do THAT, what's that tell ya!

  • Government Deficit Shrinks: Still Nobody Is In Control [View article]
    The House Republicans are EXCLUSIVELY responsible for this, which is entirely due to flat federal spending, the first time in the post war era. As in post WWII. They are holding the budget to the sequester. And as you said, we have the best performing economy. So much for Keynesian "stimulus!"

  • Retirees Thrown Under The Bus Twice: Negative Interest Rates And No Social Security COLA [View article]
    Thanks George, me too. I look at lists like yours on a regular basis trying to snag div payers at low multiples, often by writing puts; and easing the pain of minor selloffs by writing calls if I feel they are "overbought."

  • Retirees Thrown Under The Bus Twice: Negative Interest Rates And No Social Security COLA [View article]
    Some commenters seem to think this article is saying...NOWHERE else to put your money, it's gotta be stocks? I think the author is far more prudent and intelligent than that: selecting solid dividend growers and coverage, so that price fluctuations are less a matter of concern.

    What happens to the "nowhere else" people? They buy some growth stock at high multiples and in a year they panic and sell for a 40% loss.

    Makes a 1% loss at the bank look pretty good now, don't it?

  • Why The 'Biotech Bubble' Is Economic Nonsense [View article]
    The word "bubble" has become a catch all for every financial cassandra who wants to get an article published. All it means is they missed the latest big move upward and want the train to go back into the station.
