  • Treasury yields fall along with stocks [View news story]
    Too many people were short at the end of the year. Provided kindling for a reversal in trend. That kindling could turn to jet fuel if it attracts so momentum traders and a hedge fund or two blow up.

    I think those gains are back.

  • Ally earns a Buy rating from BTIG's Palmer [View news story]
    You know...I respect sales people just "doing their job" so to speak. In most cases there isn't much difference between your product and a competitor's. Success is how you pitch it. Then there are the sales people who will do the job and float a turd to people. Calling GMAC a buy is a flat out lie. It never will be a buy. Mark Palmer is behaving unethically.

  • Alcoa +4% as earnings top estimates, seeks to cut exposure to market swings [View news story]
    They are an aluminum company that loses money making aluminum...why you'd want to own this stock is beyond me.

  • Stock futures little changed as earnings season kicks off [View news story]
    Priced in? The stocks getting crushed don't rely on earnings to move. No one was buying Facebook, Twitter and Tesla because of their money making capabilities. Companies like GE, Cisco, Intel, HP, Microsoft, and the banks which have been moving higher seem ripe for a correction on bad earnings related to a slowdown (even if if it temporary). Bad earnings are not priced in.

  • 192K jobs gain in March about inline [View news story]
    Good enough to continue the taper. The momo stocks should continue to get smashed. The question now is whether that will bleed over to the large cap names or not.

  • ISM Non-Manufacturing Index [View news story]
    So much for the weather bump. Another bad employment data point as well...we'll probably have a boffo number tomorrow.

  • Reuters/UofM Consumer Sentiment at 80.0 [View news story]
    Conference Board beat so this one had to miss. It almost seems that the data is more of a game to manage the markets than it is a conveyance of facts. Markets need to desperately get green for the quarter so I doubt this will matter much today.

  • FOMC: Rate hikes coming sooner and faster [View news story]
    If you get a market correction due to an end of QE and a raise in the short end of the curve you won't see the long end explode higher. You will get a nice flattening, perhaps as low as 1% on the 2-10 spread and 1.50% on the 3m-30. I'd guess both the 10 and 30 will fall a percent from here before they go up by one.

    Faster rate hikes? We must have read a different statement.

  • More on Redbook Chain Store Sales [View news story]
    Guess it wasn't the weather. Maybe it is lack of disposable income related to a moribund job market? No, couldn't be that.

  • Industrial Production climbs 0.6% [View news story]
    It'd be better news if it wasn't mostly utility driven. As spring hits and the freeze ends that should slacken quite a bit (utilities capacity utilization is up from 78 in October to 83 today). Manufacturing and mining is actually down over that time.

  • MBA Mortgage Application [View news story]
    Yeah, prices are too high. Chop 15% off the cost of a home and mortgages will pick up again.

  • Winners and losers in Consumer Reports' auto survey [View news story]
    Maybe it's just me since I don't even own an iPod or a smart phone but I can't imagine not buying a car solely because of a car's entertainment system. Talk about first-world complaints.

    Good fuel for metals to continue to run.
