  • “We are seeing a fundamental level of price inflation, higher than the 1980s and 1990s," says General Mills (GIS) CEO Ken Powell. As for food companies passing along higher costs, “you have to play all your other cards first," says Nestle (NSRGY.PK) CEO Paul Bulcke.  [View news story]
    with Ben Serial Printer Bernank in charge we sure will see high inflation. Anyone say 10-20%+ high.
    No doubt the container content charade is coming to an end.
    At some point we all will have to feel the pain that Bennie boy and the politicians have tried so hard to shield the sheeple from.
    BUT the game is near over and reality will hit the sheeple like a brick wall when eggs milk meat veggies and energy (oil--gas) start to lift off in price.
    What we need is a egypt style revolution throwing out all the bums in office and restructuring the govt and fed policies.

  • SuperValu: Lots of Uncertainty, Little Risk [View article]
    After a little digging there appears to be little support from tangible assets.
    Be careful with this one in that hard support is lacking and it may fall much further than you think.

  • Mainstream Media Misses the Boat (Again) on Manufacturing Report [View article]
    Hey Phil You remind me of that cocky techy back in 1999 who thought internet was the Future. Yeah he sure was right but as investments many went down the tubes. Warning him was a waste of my time. Then in 2003-2004-2005 it was a rehore that had the blinders on again. Did NOT or would not listen to anything or anyone that doubted housing. IT ALWAYS GOES UP. I remember this line well. I am NOT going to give my house away. The slug did not put a dime down or invest a nickel in the house but demanded magically that it appreciate 20% per year.

    Today the same INSANE policies that triggered the credit and housing bubble are revving up this PHONY economy AGAIN. It is much different this time around. the world is having its doubts about the dollar and federal deficits have gone parabolic along with demographics starting to weigh heavily on entitlement programs.
    While you keep your snoot turned upwards some of us will try to bring to your attention that we still have a ponzi fianncial system.

    svu cannot even get a bounce in this powerful up move. not good short term imo. halt to rapidly falling same store sales (-4.90%) and stabilized margins could be the medicine to send this one on a major dead cat bounce.

    Psycho ben will not stop printing and the corrupt politicians will not stop spending both enable each other. prodog on right path.
    High inflation 10-20% and dollar destruction on the way. Inflating the debt way is the fed's plan. Protect your wealth as commodity prices and necessity prices go sky high.
    weimar stock market did not keep up with hyperinflation and there was sharp violent corrections along the way.

    Hey Bro. Take the blinders off. You see what you want to see. The Reichsmark (Weimar german currency 1920's) had multiple 30% rallies on its way to becoming worthless.
    I highly suggest you apply at the NAR for a economist position. You would make a good pumper.
