  • Operation Twist - Did the Fed Channel Lionel Richie or Chubby Checker
    Rates on the long end of the curve are higher, and short end rates are lower.  Unless Chubby Checker is dancing on the ceiling, Operation Twist is going backwards.  With TIPS falling off, deflationary fears are rising.  Not a great outcome today.

  • HPQ: Board must go and start with Ray Lane
    Appointing Meg Whitman as CEO of HPQ is as good an idea as NY Yankees replacing A. J. Burnett with Derek Jeter.  Top flight CEO but different skill set required for HPQ than EBAY, a retailer.  And while Whitman did a great job at EBAY, her timing on leaving was near perfect.    Ultimately, the BOD has to be replaced.  This hiring is another knee jerk reaction instead of a well thought out strategy.  The Ray Lane interview now on CNBC only lowers my already low confidence level in a turnaround.
