    5:59 AM Flush with huge amounts of cash, companies repurchased $274B more shares than they issued in the first nine months of the year, says Yardeni Research. The buybacks reflect the lack of confidence in the economy as companies forgo capex and hiring, while they are also distorting EPS trends. One question is how much the repurchases have contributed to the rise in stocks this year.

    silver down $1 this morning, gold down $24 below $1700 again, both nearing breaking support.

    The mkt. will absorb the second half of foreclosed homes, just like it has the first half....except this half is much easier.

    and no one seen the crash coming, or the recovery afterward, or record corp profits during recession, but it happened.

    Your way too negative.

    In '08-09, I said it takes 10 years to recover..we are half way there.

    I have wondered how they will keep the losses to a minimum on bonds and money mkt. funds.....the only reason that and the mkt hasn't had a 20% correction is IMO the watchdogs are a bit to close and I think Wall St. knows without a doubt there is no second chances anymore...no political will,...no public will. For now it would be suicide and they know it.
    With that said, it will happen. Watching money flow and the fed's money supply is my two key indicators. I just don't know how/when to short it.

    Good article Jon, I agree with you on "the low yield is not worth the risk".... at present anyway.
    I am very glad to see articles on emerging markets and I wish you well.

    There is no way to know, so this is a guess & not even a good opinion.... but I believe the MM's have found a penny stock that trades volume more than most. So they do work it harder than most pennies.
    Otherwise, There are times I feel like someone is accumulating AXPW on the sly.
    I always wonder where the selling volume come from on days like today though....and who is buying almost half a million shares ?

    I am not sold on the inflection point short of major news....and I mean major news....because the coming funding is a weight on the pps. Therefore, normally good news won't move the needle much.
    It looks more and more like a .25 offering and everyone knows it but us.

    That abuse thing is the only reason I stay invested. Not the hype of 30 batteries here, 50 batteries in a truck belonging to a company with no money and no revenue.

    The things that do keep me in,
    -Hyundai and Kia pay $300 million to settle false mileage claims
    -Article on Ford's C-Max is not the 50 mpg they say but 31-33 under normal driving..
    -AGM's fail after months rendering Start/Stop useless...

    sooner or later this has to drive a different tech.

    5:07 AM The EPA is investigating Consumer Reports' findings that the gas mileage on Ford's Fusion and C-Max wagon hybrids aren't as high as advertised. In its tests, the magazine found that the Fusion had a mileage of 39 mpg and the C-Max 37 MPG, well below Ford's rating of 47 mpg for both vehicles. Ford argues - as one observer does - that the standardized government test doesn't replicate the way consumers drive their vehicles. Comment! [Consumer]

    After pulling drugs and scrapping them, who knows what to believe?

    9:34 AM Geron (GERN) soars 15.1% after saying that its imetelstat treatment performed well in Phase II trials of patients with a chronic blood disorder called essential thrombocythemia. Geron designed the trial to provide a proof of concept for the potential use of imetelstat to treat blood cancers. Geron shares were slammed last week after it said it was stopping the development of therapies for brain cancer. (Presentation) [Healthcare] Comment!

    Getting approval won't be that difficult, Deere used to make engines for GM as far back as 1980's, they are seasoned pro's and have great engineers who can get the job done.

    Another one shot down....amazing! I really thought this was a lock for approval.

    WASHINGTON, Dec 7 (Reuters) - A U.S. Food and Drug Administration panel of outside experts voted against recommending Zogenix Inc'S Zohydro painkiller for FDA approval on Friday, citing concerns about the opioid drug's potential to cause addiction.
