    The Market Ahead This Week

    China stocks are down more this Monday to a 3 month low. Japan Democrats take power after the elections. GM is forming China Venture with the FAW. AIG is looking at its options regarding ILFC. Get ready for increased activity in the markets as traders come back to work next week after the summer and Labor Day holidays. This Friday is the big August employment report. Other important reports this week are the ISM manufacturing and non-manufacturing surveys, the last Fed meeting minutes, monthly auto sales, and the Chicago Purchasing Managers reports.

    My Stock Pick This Week

    Is a sell-short on a US real estate investment management company. I don’t see a bottom in USA real estate prices yet, and I don’t see the same for companies involved in USA real estate. If employment continues higher, which I think it will, then GDP is likely heading lower, and real estate prices and companies involved in real estate are likely heading lower too. In my opinion the worst not over for real estate and the financial markets. The worst is yet to come.
