  • Big beat for Canadian payrolls [View news story]
    Yeah from my view point people are getting jobs somewhere as my company is trying to hire a lot right now. The problem is still most jobs are part time and low paying..

  • "He's elephant hunting ... there aren't a lot of elephants around," says Jeff Matthews of Warren Buffett after Berkshire Hathaway's (BRK.B) cash hoard rose to $47.8B at the end of Q3 (earnings). The firm made a number of purchases during Q3 (and last week agreed to buy Oriental Trading), but Buffett made clear the buys aren't material, "individually or in the aggregate." [View news story]
    He's waiting for the market crash to buy up cheap companies..

  • Ross Stores (ROST -7.4%) slumps after the retailer issues a sales report and guidance a bit too soft for what investors seemed to be expecting. On a prerecorded sales call, the company says Juniors and Accessories were its best-performing category in Q3 as it boosts its EPS outlook to $0.71 to $0.72 for the period. [View news story]
    Haven't been impressed with their sales selection and presentation..

  • Market recap: It's "like watching paint dry" - with nothing settled in Europe and waiting to see what the Fed will do, the market could drift along on miniscule volume for the rest of the summer. Diminished expectations for inflation in China prompted speculation that Beijing eventually could join European and U.S. central bankers in stimulating growth. NYSE gainers edged losers six to five. [View news story]
    When inflation is really low, that's a sign that the economy is not doing so well eh?

    So on the one hand people can say that they will join in in the pumping money fiasco... But can pumping money save the world? People don't seem to be spending more cash when they do this so will the jobs return?

  • U.S. Stock Market Complacency On Verge Of Collapse [View article]
    I agree. I don't think the Fed will QE soon here, at least not in the next few months unless things start getting ugly fast. So with QE out the window for a bit, markets should drift down. What scares me though is some people are pointing towards a bull run here. Investors whom I respect very much too. I just hope James' call is correct.

  • The Reserve Bank of India lowers its repo rate by 50 bps to 8%, confounding expectations for a 25 bps cut and marking the first cut in three years. An uncertain inflation outlook leaves little room for further cuts. (RBI statements: rate cut, economic outlook)  [View news story]
    You know things are bad when they cut rates when inflation isn't controlled..

  • Spain has exposed the limits of the ECB's LTRO, writes John Plender, adding the program only reinforced a dynamic of weak EU banks propping up overstretched sovereign borrowers. Bank balance sheets are now in even worse shape as lenders pledged so much collateral as security for ECB loans. It's "back to make do and mend in the eurozone."  [View news story]
    Go go QE go!.. This should show u that QE doesn't help that much and hopefully takes it all off the table..

  • The Fed considers a new "sterilized" bond purchase program, still aimed at boosting the economy, but also designed to calm inflation fears. With this plan, the Fed would still conjure up dollars to buy long-term bonds, but would then engage in a "reverse repo," borrowing back the money for short periods. And all it took was one serious down day in stocks.  [View news story]
    So they'll lend the money out to banks and then borrow them back for higher interest rates effectively running the ponzi bank scheme.

    Banks have access to easy money and stay propped up, ie. if CDS gets activated. And the Fed pays them interest for doing it. Something like that?

    Moral Hazard???

  • Is Wal-Mart next? The next big retailer to report a margin shock (previous) due to discounting could be Wal-Mart (WMT +0.5%), according to analysts. WMT exec Duncan MacNaughton concedes as much, saying "we continue to invest in price to drive our price separation and our price leadership." Thomson Reuters estimates WMT's gross margin will fall to 24.5% from 25.1% this quarter - a mark that could move lower if WMT keeps discounting right through the end of the year.  [View news story]
    This is what I had envisioned would happen to signal another recession looming nearby..
