  • Surviving And Prospering Over The Next 4 Years Of Economic Darkness [View article]
    I'm reminded of the phrase: "It's easier to fool a man than to convince a man he's been fooled." Sad day for the USA.

  • More Bernanke: The first two rounds of QE have lowered Treasury yields by 80-120 basis points, raised GDP by 3%, and increased payrolls by 2M. This remains a man who clearly believes in the positive effects of QE and still sees credit/financial markets as needing it. He didn't make any explicit promise for another round, but the speech comes close. [View news story]
    Obama claims his policies have created 4.4m jobs. Ben says the Fed's actions have created 2m jobs. So Obama has really only created 2.4m. If Obama takes credit for jobs created by the Fed, then clearly the Fed isn't neutral and has become political... since they're acting on order from the executive.

  • ConAgra Foods: A Candidate For Value-Enhancing Split-Up Or Divestiture [View article]
    I'm sure you're more familiar than you may realize. They are in about 97% of American homes. Chef Boyardee, Hunt's, Pam... Their portfolio is vast, and I'd be willing to bet you could open your pantry and find their logo.

  • Fairy Tale Friday: EU Leaders 'Wish' Greece Can Stay [View article]
    mc - You are a lost cause. All you can do is dribble out meaningless talking points and dodge all legitimate concerns and questions. Sad... the media owns your thoughts.

  • After four days of fire and 48 deaths, Venezuela's oil minister says he's in no hurry to reopen the Amuay refinery, and will first carry out an extensive inspection. "Because we have all our plants in perfect shape, we have no need to hurry to re-activate," the minister says, but earlier statements have hardly been reliable. Resumption could take weeks if the fire burned through any piping, instruments or pumps. [View news story]
    Obviously all plants are not in perfect shape...

    mc -

    No, it's a simple point... blame is not a solution.

    Of course, as long as you are blaming the other side, you'll never notice the true culprit - government. In a world of suckers, it's a brilliant tactic.

    I also noticed your insolent "brother Obama" attempt to interject race in to the argument (Presumably because I seem conservative, and therefore must be a racist bigot, right?). I'm sure you'll fail to see the humor, but it's quite funny when you display your own racism in an attempt to classify someone else as racist. I never mentioned his color, yet you somehow felt compelled to bring it up... apparently you're the one concerned with such trivial categorizations.

    As for the rest of your comment... de minimis.

    Lol. So now that the boat is taking on water TWICE AS FAST with Obama at the helm, must still be Bush's fault, eh?

    Gotta love that liberal logic.

    So the loss of household income has basically doubled (2.6 to 4.8) under Obama. Must be Bush's fault.

  • "There is scope for further action by the Federal Reserve to ease financial conditions," says Ben Bernanke in a letter to Rep. Issa defending previous central bank moves. Noting monetary policy works with a lag, the Chairman says decisions must be made "in light of a forecast of the future performance of the economy." [View news story]
    In other words, we're lagging in this race to the bottom.

  • Competition in the mortgage market is "essential," Wells Fargo (WFC) tells staff, saying its 33% market share isn't "magic" but the result of doing a better job than competitors. Success is a red flag to the government, and the bank's dominant position is furrowing the brows of various regulators and lawmakers. [View news story]
    Indeed, it's not the forum for it... so why you come in and dribble out worthless tidbits of blame is a mystery.

    I thought Obama's mantra was "Forward." Maybe he and his supporters should heed their own Marxist slogan...

    Typical liberal. Talking points and "Bush did it." No solutions, all blame.

  • It's official, Rochdale's Dick Bove has now completed his 180 degree turn on the market and calls for a year-end rally. Bove, who was originally negative on stocks back in April, now sees the S&P 500 hitting 1555 over the next 12 months. Why the big change? Seasonality, of course. The market reacts quickly to the Fed's seasonal easing and tightening. In September, Bove says, the Fed eases to facilitate the economy's need to pay for the holiday season. "This has driven the market higher in the past and should do so again." [View news story]
    Knew a guy named Richard Sweat. Yea, his childhood was rough.

  • Monday Market Movement: Can We Continue To Ignore And Soar? [View article]
    It's not a "we" decision (unless taxpayers own shares from bailouts like GM or AIG). Shareholders and boards make the call on what the top dog gets paid... if you don't like it, buy shares and vote against it.
