  • Target Stock Is A Dividend-Raising Monster [View article]
    Has is the effective word. The way Target is doing these days I wouldn't bet on higher dividends unless they are due to a stock price drop.

  • China finishes session in the green [View news story]
    It's nice to see a bounce, especially after China did the right thing to crack down on very speculative margin trading it banned.

    New we will see if the market will take another bite of the poison fruit known as QE coming from the EU. Sadly, apparently the Euro is going that way putting pressure on an already deflated Euro with lots of already rogue heavily indebted European countries. No one will learn if they don't pay the price for their terrible ways. In fact, at this point you are pretty much encouraging everyone to misbehave.

    When will bad behavior stop being rewarded and simulative to the market? The artificial tonic not only wears off, but leaves those that drink it in a worse condition than when they started. Surely market participants know this by now.

  • Saudi Arabia: Cutting Off The Hand To Save A Finger [View article]
    They can afford not to and is why they aren't cutting. Their costs are way below others.

  • Saudi Arabia: Cutting Off The Hand To Save A Finger [View article]
    1) Global demand including speculators and those trying to hoard the stuff. Subtracting that we will now see real consumption.

    2) So what about Saudi's losing marketshare. Just like any business, especially big ones, you lose control and power not just price when you give up too much marketshare. In reality Saudi Arabia is already in this mess because it let its marketshare decline too much.

    3) Cutting will decrease their income because as they stated, others will just fill the void.

    4) The oil era will end if oil isn't competitive with new technology. Even then, oil alternatives with better profile in emissions as well as power are emerging. One can only hope to slow the advance of solar, geothermal, etc. with extremely affordable oil.

    5) Please is not an argument.

    6) I'm glad you own gold. Mistakes in one place may be covered by right choices in another.

  • Banks, Bonds And Deficits [View article]
    Good base knowledge for the general public. Sadly, you will loose most of them who are only interested in how to make money through gambling in stocks, bonds, gold, or currencies. Ergo the real reason economics is the grim science and has been replaced by cheap snake oil sellers hawking QE as some mad addictive thing that will make everyone unaware of anything as it slowly first dims rational thought by suspending capitalist signaling, kills capitalism through corruption as people can now get rich doing nothing productive at all and encourages politicians and bankers to steal even more monetary value from the public that uses your currency or holds it, then denies those that hold your currency income or even value holding it, and finally kills the country after years and years of no economic growth and impoverishes just about everyone besides those cheating everyone out of their wealth.

    Banks playing tidily winks with banks and issuing monopoly money does not make an economy or any rational economic sense no matter how you make up a story telling everyone how wonderfully fantastic it is for them to enrich you enough so you can absorb all their assets as they go bankrupt without the banks doing it from going bankrupt.

  • The U.S. Has Become An Industrial Powerhouse [View article]
    LOL a lot of this industrial production jump comes in oil jobs and oil processing. The rest is related to homebuilding and thinks like steel manufacturing which are also not looking very well at all. Even the toilet manufacturers should be looking at a drop in business not a gain this year, so where is the manufacturing growth. Don't say military, because the US government already is sacrificing soldiers to get the increased military expenditures they want and can't afford much more without imperiling the very military they support.

  • Hollande: ECB will announce QE this week [View news story]
    LOL, we can't wait to see the Euro fall even more. Does Hollende want to make Europe's economic might equal to Africa's?

    Japan could institute QE because of it's massive surpluses and assets even though it will inevitably kill it after rotting it for decades. The US could thanks to the belief it could grow its way out of it like before although it has proven its ability to kill any economic resurgence and demands more and more funding just to keep the victim alive much like cocaine or other toxic addictive drugs.

    The Euro can't afford QE simply because it already has almost no growth, massive debt, and socialized systems that can't pay fort themselves and grind the economy into dust. If Europe engages in QE it will be like adding rabies to a dog already malnourished and infested with worms, ticks, and fleas.

  • IS THE STRONG DOLLAR THE NEW BLACK SWAN EVENT? [View instapost]
    Indeed the US is hopefully reaching a derision of massive deficit spending and central bank intervention including QE. This will cause the economy to get back to reality which inevitably means a rather severe downturn given the amount of socialization we employed to fly our kite, much like the Soviet Union unfortunately.

    Hopefully, its not enough to take us down from the 1st world status we always held as a champion of capitalism and thus growth and a stable economy. Somehow we have switched or at least our politicians, banks, and central bank to a spend, lie, and enrich ourselves with corruption and economic theft which destroys our economic system.

    Who would have thought the US move towards capitalism would be a black swan event? If it is, we should welcome it before it becomes so bad we see a dead swan event.

  • What To Hold In The Face Of Deflation [View article]
    In a bad market downturn it depends on the reasoning. If it is lack of trust in those printing money gold may be a good buy. If it is an economic downturn and deflation then paying off all your debt may be the wisest thing you ever did. If it is a return to cold war then investing in military goods may be the way to go. However, given the massive deficits the US has already massive downturns, regardless of the reason, are liable to lead to cuts even in the military. This is why running debt in good times and bad is plain stupidity. Any economist who graduated from a legitimate college with at least a C should know this. Which makes you wonder who is advising our leaders and running our central bank? Idiots, frauds, criminals, or a combination of them all because it sure isn't legitimate capitalist economists.

  • 3 New Red Flags Waving [View article]
    Sadly most people don't know what to think about central bank policies even though they essentially shift worth out of your pocket and into others (usually bankers) as they tell you it's for your own good. It's not. You may trust your relatives but you are a fool to trust politicians and you are simply not rational enough to be a fool to trust modern day central banks, especially when they talk about anti-capitalist ideas that knowingly don't work like QE.

  • Treacherous Investment Climate: What To Watch [View article]
    BIIB has debt. Anyways, generally you're right.

    As for analysts. Analysts are able to understand, they just are paid to paint a picture that pleases their firms who usually want deals with the companies they cover, and most companies want their reports to adhere to their general expectation. Thus, most analyst reports are essentially the same as hearing the company's expectation with even more hype and innuendo.

    Quants can be good and if they are they won't tell you anything. The quants that do tend to chase trend and are as ignorant as lemmings.

    MBAs are pretty much as weak as their teachers who wouldn't be teaching if they could get rich off the stock market.

  • Are Government Workers At Multi-Year Lows? [View article]
    The simple fact is that the government just has a nice way to hide their excesses. Also a big drop is due to pairing down the armed forces and not bureaucracy. If government is not cutting expenses what really is happening if they are cutting workers is that they are just spreading it among fatter and fatter fingers which doesn't include, police, fire, infrastructure, roads, or anything else that helps you. Rather they prefer to cut it to make you scream for more government. Great tactic until it becomes too obvious you are getting almost nothing for your taxes.

    The drop in local government spells out the point that real services are what's being cut along with military personnel.

  • Softcard Can Help Google Outplay Apple Pay [View article]
    Yawn, Apple is really drudging the bottom of the barrel if it's only innovation is trying to take over transaction fees. I agree that credit cards are an overpriced insulated industry that takes advantage of debt ridden Americans and as such is a good target for competition, however, Apple is not the right person to do it nor is Google. One needs a content neutral player who can gain many supporters, otherwise you make a mess of the technology and help vindicate the old overpriced model of Visa and MasterCard.
