  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    wyostocks - not justify, rather, pointing to the moral hazard. If someone loses their job and can get unemployment, which is more logical: busting their ass at $9/hour to pay taxes that go to banks and foreign countries, or enjoying life for 99 weeks?

    BlueOkie said: "When people can draw unemployment for 99 weeks why work?"

    And when the CONgress and the FED bailout banks, insurers, automakers, and Wall Street - while punishing savers and the responsible - why shouldn't people draw unemployment for 99 weeks?

    My Son only uses his laptop for Skype, everything else he does on his smartphone.

    Keep in mind how fast tech sector moves.

    Google, Facebook, desktop computers, HP, Dell - all are the Pet Rocks and Cabbage Patch dolls of the future.

    "Nike profit drops 12% as futures orders slow."

    What!?!? Say it ain't so!

    "Car makers use "self-registrations" to boost EU sales."

    A logical second step to channel stuffing.

    Recovery, green shoots, mustard seeds...and all that.

    The last Java update had a forced installation of Google Chrome as the default browser. No, there was no opt-out, it just did it.

    Department of Justice? We have a Department of Justice? And they are going after BP but can't seem to find Jon Corzine?

    FedEx issues profit warning: just in time for Fall. Pay attention to this barometer, more of this coming as you can fudge and jigger NFP but it is hard to do it for shipping actual packages.

    AMR: I'm beginning to see the benefits of declaring bankruptcy; you don't have to honor contracts. Sign me up! (A real tragedy - this and the whole industry).

    Smithfield profits down:

    It can't be from bacon, which has gone meteoric from $2.50 a pound to $5.69 for 12 oz. (yes, getting hard to buy a POUND of bacon. I won't buy the 12 oz. packages and just told Farmland Foods this).

    Quantum computing:

    I love scientists; they really believe that physics and hardware can make things secure when used by human beings (and Schroedinger's Cat).

  • Winding down state-sponsored mortgage finance will be easier said than done, as Fannie Mae purchased $81.9B mortgages in July, nearly double the amount from a year ago. The growing business for the GSEs is another signal housing is rebounding, but exactly how do politicians expect to replace them? [View news story]
    Fannie Mae, reverse mortgages, bankers and politicians blowing another bubble to get their bonuses and get elected.

    If they were feeding our children and grand-children into a meat grinder in front of our eyes we would stop them: shoot them, hang them, behead them.

    Somehow - we allow ten to twenty years of our somnambulance and their legerdemain to pass - and the same thing happens to our children and grandchildren in needless wars, on the decaying streets of our cities, and in the death of the middle class - we re-elect the charlatans, and allow the vampires to roam free.

    Where is Jon Corzine?

    "Debt to solve a debt crisis...free money to banks to increase their profits and screw over retirees and savers..enemas and laxatives for diarrhea and dehydration..."

    Issac is not going to help the corn crop, too late.

    Maybe some Fall crops, but not corn.

    The rest is SSDD, worm turning, Fall swoon for the cotton candy markets if the Bernanke doesn't announce QE3 at Jackson Hole.

    "GM to stop Volt production"

    GM must have spent millions just on advertising and only 10,000 sales? Wow. I wouldn't be upset if it weren't taxpayer money they are wasting. Can you say "Solyndra"?

    "Manufacturers plea for tax cuts"

    Better infrastructure and education? Please. Companies don't want to hire American workers and pay them a livable wage, they just want the tax cut.
