  • Jack Welch is only half right - don't trust the numbers in any jobs report, not just the latest one. Revisions on top of revisions... the vast discrepancy between two sets of employment totals... lumping part-time workers with full-timers. But the numbers aren't rigged; if they were, the BLS isn't doing a very good job of it. In 2011: 153K jobs created per month. So far in 2012: 146K/month. [View news story]
    Jack Welch belongs to the same club of morally bankrupt people that Jon Corzine, Thain and Mozillo are part of.

  • September Nonfarm Payrolls: +114K vs. consensus +115K, +142K previous (revised from 96K). Unemployment rate 7.8% vs. consensus 8.2%, 8.1% previous. [View news story]
    I have to agree. The rich should pay their fair share. A 50% top tax rate should be enough.

  • Market recap: Stocks finished flat, erasing an early rally fueled by the U.S. jobs report, as an ECB official said it isn't certain Greece would receive an aid payment next month. The drop in unemployment to 7.8%, lowest of the Obama presidency, could lift some of the clouds over upcoming Q3 earnings reports. Crude oil fell 2% after an early pop; Treasurys erased a two-week rally. NYSE losers led winners six to five. [View news story]
    Terry, keep hitting those Jesus riding dinosaurs tea bags. Everyone agrees with you.

    This has to be one of best of times for America. Unemployment rate collapsing, auto sales surging, home prices accelerating. Good times.

    Obama has done great taking in consideration the tea bags who believe Jesus rode dinosaurs.

    A top tax rate of 90% to the 1% would reduce the deficit and enhance the middle class. It is them or us.

    What's the average IQ of a tea bag? I guess about 50.

  • The jobs report today was good, observes Pimco's Mohamed El-Erian, but markets won’t be able to push much higher until the economic fundamentals strengthen. “So far, we’ve had a rally based on chopping off the tails of catastrophe," he says. "But in order to keep going, we need the hand-off to fundamentals. And today’s employment report, while better, is not strong enough for that hand-off.” If fundamentals don't catch up to valuations soon, the equity markets will start coming down. [View news story]
    Again, you don't understand what are jobless claims and how they are calculated.

    Don't try to backpedal now with that inane thing of "google yourself".

    If 400K people were dropping each week for the last 4.5 years that would mean a staggering 93.2M people in a country which have less than 240M people above 18. Are you going to tell me we lost ~40% of that total in just 4.5 years? Really? Use the logic.

    Both guys above me don't know how and what it is in reality jobless claims. Do the homework, or you would sound ignorant.....

    Obama has done pretty good taking in consideration that Congress has been controlled by the tea bags.

    He deserves four more years. Equities are at highs, unemployment rate below 8%, home prices recovering and auto sales surging.

    One of the best days in America's history.

  • Ultra-bear Marc Faber continues to warn about an imminent downturn in equities markets, saying that investors should brace for a major market drop ahead that will present a buying opportunity. "Within the next six to nine months we can buy just about anything 20 percent lower than it is now," Faber says. Jim Rogers shares that sentiment, with the exception of China, where he says the collapse has already occurred. [View news story]
    Paulo, true...deficits are scary. But I need to allocate money where I think the risk-return is more favorable. Equities are the place as of today. That could change with the fiscal cliff.

    Tack, they also are ignoring the postponable purchase ratio(credit to brrodero), increasing auto sales and huge productivity gains.

    They also ignore that the employed are the ones who drive a economy, not the unemployed.
