  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    You mean there's another way? LOL! We all know the truth is its more advantageous for politicians to make big promises that they can push off on the next generations to fulfill. In the meantime, they get reelected, earn an even better pension of their own, and they'll be long since retired when the feces hits the fan.

    Ain't that the truth. I sense a lot of their problems with email have to do with trying to fix what wasn't broke, and now it is.

    Don't understand Vlad Putin talking to Obama. He's got all the green lights to do whatever he wants. Perhaps its all about sticking Obama's nose in it so he'll get a good whiff.

    Sorry to inform you but GM is far more important to this administration than is your girlfriend. That's the bottom line.

    The government allowed GM to exit bankruptcy court with all of its tax loss carry-forwards. In all likelihood, GM's fines will be as small as is politically feasible considering the firm's attempt to cover up wrong-doing for such a long time.

    I'm not too worried about mild deflation. The government is already building in higher expenses through regulation which will surely stop deflation in its tracks. But lets not forget its the same government that has spent the last couple of decades reformulating the methodology used to provide us with the glimpse of inflation/deflation we're now looking at. Every change made was to reduce the inflation result so if deflation is really such a problem they can just rejigger the CPI formula again. A case can easily be made that as the population ages, medicine ought to command a larger piece of the pie thus ensuring regular if not rampant inflation for decades.

    I was anticipating someone would offer up a view such as this. Now I wish I'd had the stones to buy puts.

    The Iranian agreement is one of the most one-sided, idiotic attempts at diplomacy this nation has ever seen. The Iranians were against the ropes due to the ramifications of sanctions. Now we'll allow them to infuse an additional 7B into their economy in return for a delay? This will only fuel their ability to finish the job of full refinement. Of course, we'll never get a permanent agreement. Why would Iran deal fairly now that we're giving them our leverage?

    I don't buy it. People don't announce shorts before they take a position. Everyone knows that. Better luck next time.

  • Facebook Is No Google: Sell This Overvalued Mega-Cap [View article]
    FB has turned into a website destination for the geriatric set to look at family photos. Maybe FB should work on getting more ads from big pharma.

    The Fed does own a considerable share of the blame with their easy money, but I think far too little attention has been put on the GSEs. They had "implied" backing from the Federal government which everyone knew was code for absolute guarantee. Armed with this knowledge, Fannie and Freddie both leveraged up in high interest sub-prime mortgages which brought a great increase in current cash flow. The benefits are then derived by upper management with huge bonuses followed by a nice golden parachute retirement (see Franklin Raines for details). No company would have taken such a risky strategy if not for the "implied" backing.

    I'm glad to see the DOJ going after the banks for these crappy mortgages but I still don't put all the fault with the banks. The primary culprit of the financial crisis are the politicians that embedded moral hazard into the mortgage market for the sake of pushing forward their social engineering agenda. The banks were encouraged to make loans to all and they did with a vengeance making a mint all the while. But the silver lining in going after the banks now is they won't be walking lock-step with the social engineering crowd hereafter. The resultant housing market will be dead for years to come. Looking back at the 5 year trailing average for new single family construction, we're at a 50 year low.
