    TB, I have always had a problem figuring the rebalancing of indexes .

    on one hand..the only permanent thing is change, so as disruptive technology comes to mkt, I can see the irrelevance of one company and the relevance of the new one.
    It's still difficult to put it into perspective and use history as a guide.

    I am sure a correction comes, but when ? I also feel that global and political stability is more fragile than most know. ex=Russia, Iran/Iraq, even the USA for the next 2 years with election upsets or a change in the control box.

    At the highs buybacks reduce capital available for investment which eventually reduces future share price?

    this has always been my fear of unnecessary buybacks..or perhaps excessive is a better word....

    Corps have not deployed enough capital for future growth and have overdone the dividend increases and buybacks IMO. Example is the USA has the slowest internet in the world...

    a different opinion on the 2.7%

    3 Companies Poised To Benefit From The Switch To Solar
    http://seekingalpha.co...

    Summary

    Within the next five years, 57% of global energy consumers would be interested in solar panel or connected-home solution installation as more people seek to lower their energy bills.


    Seven percent of energy consumers worldwide are currently interested in solar panel installation options.

    Why don't you make a case for the subsidies to fossil fuels too ?
    And with fossil fuels the owner and neighbor you mentioned are paying these subsidies...with solar subsidies by gov't they are still both paying for it. Only one chooses to take advantage of it and the other does not.

    re: Iindelco's article above on Solar,

    There are many hidden costs to fossil fuel pollution. Below are some things to watch....

    Also as to Solar subsidies, as Iinde's article pointed out that fossil fuel subsidies are 6x what solar & wind are,

    Alternative energy is here to stay, most all articles have it scaling in continuously and to start is was a 20 year plan, and we are 5 years into that...with quite startling results as efficiency has doubled, costs is half what it was 5 years ago and nearing parity with the grid .. and it's just getting started.

    Axionistas should praise and push this because every installation has the potential for a Power Cube. Below are just a few links, Google solar panel efficiency and costs...and
    Watch China as they gradually scale towards cleaner burning fuels and Clean Energy.

    this is my busy time so I have very little time to post much. But I read everything at odd times of the day ... here's my take on a few things of late & some concerns

    re: Bullock / Fed
    IMO, Bullock is probably stating the truth now as we near QE end and cross the 2014 half-way point....the mkt is ignoring him tho.
    I don't look for rate increases this year, they will let QE end in October. Reduce reinvestment (which is a subtle way of tightening, and this is probably going on all this year).

    I don't expect much but words to cool mkts and housing thru Christmas, they won't want to hurt sales during this time after the cruel winter numbers just released on GDP....expect much much better 2nd & 3rd qtr. GDP numbers as we have just about made up for the huge drop 1st qtr. housing sales here in the South Central USA.

    IMO, we are getting the warning and transparency that things will change IF business continues on the same slow growth path in 2015 and I do NOT believe the fed will be behind the curve. I think the mkt knows this so just continues higher.

    For now I'm content with my positions, and a lot of cash too. Will continue to raise more and just duck in & out of trades. Take a few starter positions on small caps along the way.

    More later in the next post

    I'm going to predict that it's just a matter of time until a TBTF bank is broken up....they just keep pushing the envelope and are really TBTM (too big to manage). They are all crooks.
