  • Facebook (FB) moves to refute ownership claims made by Paul Ceglia, disclosing results of its investigation that includes forensic analysis and old emails from Mark Zuckerberg. FB says Ceglia's contract was “baked” by hanging it out to the light to make it look older; small tabs not discolored at the top of the paper show he likely hung it up with clothespins to expose it to light.  [View news story]
    They are all lining up hoping for a piece of the American Dream.All you need is an old cocktail napkin with a signature that looks like Zuckerberg's.

  • Greg Smith may really believe Goldman Sachs (GS) is run by "morally bankrupt" people out to rip off their clients. But that's old news, Charlie Gasparino writes; Smith needs to wake up to the less-sincere motives of the NY Times, who published his resignation letter that went viral. Gasparino sees Smith as a pawn used by the Times to score political points and advance its class warfare agenda.  [View news story]
    I think Mr.Smith is ready to run for Congress.

  • Energy emerges as one key from the State of the Union address, with President Obama launching clean energy projects on public lands, calling for efficiency initiatives, and directing the Defense Department to buy plenty of clean energy. On the 99%-vs.-1% front, he put a number to a tax-reform "Buffett rule": If you make more than $1M a year, you should not pay less than 30% in taxes. S&P 500 e-mini futures slightly lower, +0.25%.

  • Goldman Sachs' Jim O’Neill has two bold calls for currency markets in 2012: a 14% plunge in the Swiss franc vs. the euro and a nearly 30% surge in the dollar vs. the yen. Noting improved data on manufacturing and housing, O’Neill believes the U.S. economy could grow at 2.5% or even 3%, admitting his relatively upbeat call faces risks from "inept" European policy makers.  [View news story]
    Never will happen,but Jim knows that already.That is why he threw the European smokescreen into the mix.This way when he is wrong the blame can be put on the Greek taxi-driver who fails to pick enough fares in a week.

  • U.S. economic growth could slow by almost a full percentage point next year and send stocks down sharply if Congress can't agree to extend the payroll tax cut and unemployment insurance, some economists say.

  • "This year is a stinker," Pimco's Bill Gross writes in an apology for the Total Return Fund's 2011 performance, which lagged 82% of peers with its 1.3% return. Sure, he blew this year's Treasury rally, but the new motto seems to be don't fight the Fed - he's Twisting out of short-term debt into longer-term issues.  [View news story]
