  • Why The Fed Won't Save You From The Next Bear Market [View article]
    How is a small time saver able to determine the health of a bank? This is not so easy.

    Well said,

    It is really hard to know how to deal with what is coming. Even with a perfect understanding of the economy, it is impossible to anticipate whatever chaos the Federal Reserve and the politicians will throw at the system.

    Gold and silver were basically no brainers in the early 2000s. I would guess that one still cannot go wrong buying the PMs. Other investments are much more difficult.

    locutus,

    I have a deep yearning for the FED to quit meddling and stop its radical QE and ZIRP policies.

    I respectfully disagree. I am retired and my dividend stock portfolio survived the crash, and my income (from dividends) remain roughly intact. The crash also gave me the rare opportunity to buy great dividend payers at a bargain price. If you have the right kind of portfolio, you will do well in all markets.

    >>>>>&g...

    I see this kind of faith in strong dividend stocks all over SA. I would expect these so called dividend all star stocks to take a beating in the future as there is too much optimism regarding these guys.

    We get some rising interest rates and the dividends will not look so great anymore.

  • Excess Reserves: The Elephant In The Room The Fed Doesn't Want To Talk About [View article]
    Tack,

    You have that backwards. When we have inflation interest rates rise. This must be to compensate bond holders for the loss of the value of the principal.

    No Lawrence,

    All we need is the bond market going into a free fall and folks wanting out. This would send the dollar crashing and the prices of everything skyrocketing.

    These claims that inflation can't happen are exactly similar to the same claims that the housing market can't crash. These claims are fatuous.

    I have seen all these arguments before.

    And in history, there have been countless examples of sick economies with plenty of slack and hyperinflation.

    Tack,

    This is complete nonsense. We have a Federal Reserve taking extraordinary measure to devalue the dollar.

    And then you ask why worry about inflation?

    Benni,

    Once you make the claim that banks do not care about inflation, you have lost all credibility.

    Also the FED purchased treasuries and MBS to create this excess reserve. So the money was the banks to begin with apparently.

  • Why Does Ackman Think Fannie Mae Is A Ten Bagger? [View article]
    Porter,

    I see how you conveniently ignore the fact that presently these guys are lending for too little collateral against too little interest, and earlier these guys were supposedly more reckless.

    Lawrence,

    The last financial crisis has everything to do with the next one that we are heading towards at a rapid pace. The Federal Reserve held rates at 1% which was the main factor behind the last crash.

    Now the Federal Reserve is doing the same loosey goosey economic policy but this time on steroids. Any thoughts that this will end well certainly defies recent history.

    And also last time, things did not look that bad until everybody went into a panic. And then you guys are doing it again saying that since we don't have out of control inflation or crashing bonds, the Fed critics are all wrong. It is all deja vu.

    At .25% this cash is earning less than inflation.

    So this is exactly the same as the Federal Reserve withdrawing money from these accounts if inflation was 0%

    I was not referring to you in particular. But just reading your post above I am not so sure that you read the whole article. The author specifically anticipated your criticism.

    This comment does not make sense.

    0.25% is less than the rate of inflation. This is no free lunch.

    My take is that the Federal Reserve has flooded the system with so much cash that the recipients are so bloated with cash that they are forced to leave all this cash essentially losing value to inflation. This is obviously not a stable situation.
