  • Anatomy Of A Market Bubble [View article]
    @fear and greed

    I think you are wrong on your secular "BULL" call.
    We have been in a Secular "BEAR" since 2000. This is without a doubt the most violent "cyclical" bull move inside a secular bear ever witnessed in modern times.
    But to call this Fed levitated and paid for,(and the Fed doesn't even try and hide their involvement anymore), a secular bull is incorrect. If the buy-back insanity / M&A were not allowed to the MASSIVE extent it has and the interest rate standard of living killing of the working man / woman were also excluded we probably would have at some point re-tested the March 2009 lows!
    The depression we are mired in is the direct result of FED policy and Bernanke and Yellen will not be able to duck their roles in this massive bubble once it blows! What about mark to market? If we still had to value using mark to market where would we be? This has been one of the worst wealth destroying periods in history and Fed policy IS the only reason why it happened. Our children and their children are never going to enjoy the standard of living we have enjoyed. Between the most PROGRESSIVE / and anti - capitalist administration in our Republics history and the total perversion of the free market system, we are not in any rational form of capitalism and surely not a secular bull move!
    God save the Republic

  • Stocks pop as Hilsenrath says dovish Fed language to stay [View news story]
    @Minutemen,
    In a deflationary, depression which I believe we are mired in, cash is not a bad place to be. Debt is and will be the problem. The massive deleveraging we needed to do was stopped by the fed and the bubbles are being re-inflated as we speak.
    I don't know what comes next, cubits anyone?
    The days of risk free are long gone and when this broken Humptey Dumptey is finally allowed to hit the ground, I don't know what system the progressive powers that be switch on, but it will not be what the Republic has enjoyed since colonial days!
    The system is F.U.B.A.R. and the fact that the U.S. has not been down graded again is proof of how askew the system really is.
    A trillion of anything is so beyond comprehension that we need a reality check when the Fed / Government is allowed to spend TRILLIONS of dollars without any consequence!

    A trillion seconds(like in 60 seconds to a minute) equal what?
    Ready to have your mind blown?
    ONE trillion seconds equals,
    32,000 YEARS!
    God save the Republic

    You have got to be kidding!
    So not only do we have so many other forms of blatant market manipulation but then we get the "In your face" of fed mouth peice Hilsenrath!
    And the free market is supposed to be a well oiled, normally functioning machine?
    There is nothing left to our once mighty Free Market System. No one with half a brain would be in this ponzi scheme of a Fed controlled system once called the Equity Market.
    Greenspan / Bernanke and now Yellen, you will go down in history as the "Trifecta that killed the greatest capitalist system" man had known!
    Hope you are proud of yourselves!

  • Signs Of An Approaching Bear Market [View article]
    This is not the free market system at work anymore.
    The Fed has been buying and supporting this massive rise in the markets.
    We are no longer tethered to anything that was once held sacred. The Progressive machine in D.C. has so perverted the once free market system and allowed the Fed the wide berth to bastardize everything that made America the greatest country the world has ever known!
    There is no way that the average small investor can invest today with any level of safety and or confidence.
    The destruction of the American way of life is complete, look inward to find your morals and virtue.
    There is nothing left to the political system and Fed that has any virtue and morality, Obama was elected to Transform our Republic. If we don't wake up right here and now, we will loose our Republic for generations to come.
    The "Cloward and Piven" "Collapse the system" is nigh.
    We will not conform.
    We reject Greenspan / Bernanke / and Yellen and their sop to Wall Street at the expense of the working man / woman and our children's future standard of living!
    This well not end well

  • More from Yellen press conference [View news story]
    The Free Market is dead! Long live the Fed!
    NOT!

    When this finally gets going to the downside, and I am clueless as to when, it will make the talking heads and the Progressives in both parties who are OK with this death of capitalism stand back and wonder just what they have unleashed!

    There is no "NORMAL" way back once this goes south!
    The Fed owns the market and owns the nightmare to come!
    Cubits anyone?

    We are 180 degrees off of true North.
    When right becomes wrong....

  • President threatens tougher action against Russia [View news story]
    Please!
    How about just coming out and telling the world that Mother Russia killed more people(25 MILLION) than Hitler AFTER the war and that we, Europe and the International community(the U.N.) just looked the other way!
    The fact that Vlad is no more interested in any form of dialogue other than to tell the world how awful it was when the U.S.S.R. was DISMANTLED in 1991! Vlad just want's his EMPIRE back and no number of casualties will be to many!
    Wake up world, you are now in the Truman Show with an evil loosed not since Stalin, oh yeah, F.D.R. and Churchill were uncle Joe's partners.
    Get / see "The Russian Story" while there is time, and don't believe a President who goes on Ellen and talks propaganda to the ill informed rather than face the real zeal of some journalists who still have some semblance of conviction left!
    God help us all!

  • Transcripts show how Fed took time to understand scale of crisis [View news story]
    Agree with all said! But one thing I might add is their complacency and to admit that they even thought about any problem would indict them and their FAILED policies!
    Remember, Greenspan till this day accepts no responsibility for his egregious actions that caused the first MASSIVE bubble in 2000!
    The officials of today and yesterday are nothing more than progressive talking heads and at worst minions of the likes of George Soros and his plethora of "One World Order" institutes!
    Just look at Common Core, Bill Gates and his henchmen are all over this like stink on you know what! Hey Bill, just how much is enough for Microsoft?
    The free market has not been "FREE" since Hank Paulson whipped out the bazooka!
    God save the Republic!

  • Government wants to cut Medicare Advantage payments by 3.55% [View news story]
    Look, there is only one outcome that is worth talking about, the FULL REPEAL of OBAMACARE!
    Anything short of the full takeover of the senate by the true conservative republicans(boycott Karl Rove and his mouthpieces,not a penny for Karl) this November will cause more Americans to loose their lives!
    People are dying because of OBAMACARE!
    This progressive nightmare needs to be staked along with the Congressional Progressive Caucus!
    C.P.C.? Are you for real? Hey Keith Ellison, we will not comply with your progressive caucus and its socialist dystopian dreams!

  • Obama signs debt-cap suspension into law [View news story]
    If none of the ratings agencies downgrades the Obama's U.S.S.A. satellite then the Republic has been transformed and lost!
    The greatest experiment in man's self rule and freedom has become only a memory for the few remaining patriots.
    May the good Lord see fit to raise the conviction levels of the Tea Party and the proud Patriots like Cruz, Gohmert, Lee and Paul, just to name a few.

  • Morningstar: Expect big volume gains from Potash Corp. in the long run [View news story]
    I was a believer of this kind of POT meme back in 2006 / 07 when none other than Pat Dorsey was worshiping at the POT altar and it was $270 a share! Yeah I drank the cool aid then(which was quite a bit like today, even more realistic back then) and got my head handed to me due to such blinded hopefulness!
    Beware the overall markets here, not to mention POT at the split adjusted price so far removed from its all time highs!

  • Why a stock market correction should be welcome... or not [View news story]
    If you read the W.S.J. week in week out, you should have noticed that the "Insider Buying/Selling" has gone parabolic (to the sell side) in the past few weeks. I follow this stat religiously. The selling has been massive for the past year, almost no weeks of buying out numbering selling in any sector, NONE!
    But the past 3 weeks have had a first that I have not seen before.
    Billion share selling!

    Week ending 12/20/13,
    Technology sector buying;1,381,559
    Selling 1,305,935,848
    I have never seen this level of selling before, not to mention the rest of that weeks massive dump by insiders.
    Wait, it gets better!

    The following week, 12/27/13,was not to be outdone...
    Consumer Services, Buying 290,845
    Selling 1,210,655,110

    Finance, Buying 16,641,343
    Selling 1,166,685,700

    Health Care Buying 3,516,692
    Selling 1,567,381,176

    Technology Buying 2,305,331
    Selling 1,744,670,943

    And not a billion share sell, but even more amazing,
    Consumer Durables
    Buying 3,490
    Selling 385,093,007

    So with all this selling by the people in the know, I don't want to hear the pundits saying how welcome a sell off would be so they could buy in on the cheap. Nonsense!

    There is a reason for all the "Buy Backs" of the past few years folks and it is NOT a vote of confidence. It is nothing more that goosing the earnings that have been punk at best the past many quarters. You reduce the shares outstanding and viola, you are able to keep beating the bottom line! But the top line? Not so easy to play games with that one...
    I do not begrudge companies for doing what the Fed and the disastrous policies of Bubble Blowin' Ben have forced them into. But you better be ready for the "Change in Trend" when it is happening. The markets will take back all the gains of the so called "New Bull Market" off the 2009 lows much faster than the steeple chase upward of the past 5 years. The environment we are in is fraught with anti capitalism rhetoric from D.C. and as a country we are in debt past any logical sense(with the debt ceiling coming up again in a few short weeks)..

    The secular bear market we entered in 2000 has been witness to one of the most powerful cyclical bull market moves in history,(2009 to present),but that is all we have here folks!
    If Bernanke and the Fed policies were so benign and a salve to the consumer and working man / woman of this great country, why stop with a paltry 85 billion a month? Lets double it and really get the party started!
    NOT!
    The Fed and our Progressive politicians on both sides of the aisle, have destroyed the freest and most open "Free Market System" that has lifted more people out of squalor and misery than any system the world has ever known.
    We have pain ahead, it will not be easy, but the political games and lies need to be addressed and sadly the day of reckoning is fast approaching.
    If you are blessed with KING sized profits, take them!
    God knows the insiders are!

    May the good lord watch over this fragile little experiment in freedom / man's self rule we call America

  • Tepper to return capital for 3rd straight year [View news story]
    20% on top of what the markets, excuse me, the fed gave you? Wow! I hate to quote Cramer but here I go,"Bulls make money, bears make money, PIGS get slaughtered"
    I the fed does force out another 20% return in the markets next years, the working man / woman and anyone who is try to save is going to be crushed!
    This horror show will end in tears, all the while I would posit Mr. Tepper is selling his ill gotten gains way in advance of the waterfall!
    Then he'll just jump on the short side and administer the final death blow!
    Lord have mercy!

  • Who's left to buy? Hugh Hendry turns bullish [View news story]
    Well, I have to admit as this has been my feeling also.So as Hugh is beating me to the exit I guess I will wait one more day(unless the Russell 2000 does close above its recent high) and see what the weekend brings. I have been destroyed by Bernanke and this perversion called the stock market. I may need to gather the few marbles remaining, to play another day, but if I were to go LONG, which I wont of course, look out below.
    I hope the fed sleeps well knowing they have destroyed all respect and FAITH in the markets for at least a generation or two. I was the BIGGEST cheerleader for the markets and have been in them since 1995, but you couldn't give me a stock today, either be long or short via an ETF, but to play the market and believe in buy and hold for the long term(Jeremy Segal) you should doubt your sanity!
    The transformation is nearly over, Harry Reid has made congress irrelevant yesterday and we are no longer in a REPUBLIC of the founders forming! The free market system has been killed!
    God save the Republic
