  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    The problem is that we tried it after 9/11 and it didn't end up very well. No everybody is a master market timer; darling let's sell the house and go rent in the projects. We'll buy it back in two years after the crash.

    People order their cigarettes in Russia or in the Indian reservations. They haven't banned parcel shipping yet. Furthermore, cigarettes smuggling is the best business in town because when you get caught, you're caught with a legal product.

    Yep but since America quit smoking the country is getting poorer and poorer, fatter and fatter. Live hard, party hard. The last 10 years are wasted anyway, at least when I see those rare elderlies in the fitness club. As to these "estimates", you know what, it's only subprime.

  • I've Never Owned A Rolex, But Maybe It's Time To Invest In Taubman [View article]
    I grew up across the Rolex factory and I finally bought one. It's clear that the design is in temporal but… I have to reset the watch every two days because it's ahead by 4 minutes. This watch wants me to die before my time is due.

    We'll have bigger GDP, lower debt/GDP ratio and the Rheinhard and Roggoff argument will be pushed aside. We can borrow more and this will lift the market. For the rest, what can we do? When money flows nobody listen.

  • BuBa Vs. ECB - Euro-System Infighting Resumes [View article]
    Germans know that when you give 10 today you'll have to give 20 tomorrow and be ready to enter the Karmic vortex. What's the Karmic vortex? You give 20 but the recipient says; bastards they made 100 and they don't even give us 30. You expect thank you but you hear; Nazi, Nazi, Nazi, give me thirty. Germans also learned in business school that, like GOOG or GE, you can give nothing and still enjoy huge karmic wealth.

  • Don't Get Suckered By This Popular High-Yield Investment [View article]
    mReits face many risks but the one mentioned by the author, a reversal of the yield curve, is THE systemic risk you face when investing in the stock markets. The reversal of the yield curve is one if not the best forecaster of a recession and it messes up the financing of every corporation. To sell your mReits for this reason to buy any other stock doesn't make sense in my view.

    Why? Do you prefer to live in America dying in the street while those living in luxury walk over your body?

    Cost easily compensated by the savings on the SS check we were paying these turds.

  • The Mirage Of Economic 'Growth', Or Kicking Rogoff While He's Down [View article]
    The pyramid example shows exactly why you are wrong; Gov knows. Imagine Egypt today without its pyramids. It wouldn't even exist on the world map. They knew then it was an investment for the future; built it and they'll come. Gov knows, we don't.

  • Beware Of Trading Stops [View article]
    You never place stops in the market, you keep them for yourself. Giving a stop to the market is like selling an option without cashing the premium. You are telling the market you're willing to sell or buy at such price; this is information. It has value. Don't give it away.

    Whatever but it should be written in stone in the law. It's really a matter of public policy. People (employees or creditors) need to be able to assess their risk ex ante. I don't understand why such things have to go to court.
