  • Fed's Evans: Hold off on rate hikes until 2016 [View news story]
    Yeah, core cpi just 30 basis points under 2% [and the median cpi up 20 basis points over 2%] obviously calls for extreme monetary policy. Maybe they should call up the national guard while they're at it. ;-)

  • Viggle +26.9%; founder offers to buy 25% of Wetpaint site [View news story]
    Dear Editor:

    Surprised you didn't mention that this, I believe, is the same Sillerman who also recently made an offer to take SFX Entertainment private.

  • Lumber Liquidators sends out thousands of test kits [View news story]
    I thought that formaldehyde was present in a lot of the plywood and particle board used in building homes. Is that not still the case?

  • Momentum builds for legalized sports betting [View news story]
    Other than Silver, what other sports commissioners or political figures have changed their mind recently on expanding legalized sports betting? i.e., what tidal wave?

  • 64 indicted in Siemens-OTE bribery scandal [View news story]
    One can't help but wonder if this is in any way motivated by the current Greek bailout skirmishing involving, among others, Germany.

  • Another Detroit in the making? Moody's downgrades Chicago another notch [View news story]
    Headache for Emanuel? I would think the ratings warnings are a timely gift to his re-election prospects; isn't he perceived as being the more fiscally conservative of the two candidates?

  • Facing new broadband era after FCC vote, related stocks stable for now [View news story]
    What I "use"? I'm guessing that most of the bits and bytes at the typical web page I connect to are devoted to advertisements...I'd be happy to do without ads to reduce my bandwidth usage.

  • FOMC minutes: June rate hike not a slam dunk yet [View news story]
    Don’t know if this is what you were saying, but some studies have shown that the Fed doesn’t always “set” the rate but is sometimes merely following the lead of the market. And the market “in its infinite wisdom” may be telling the Fed to stop holding down the short-end of the curve, as two and three year T- note yields have been going up since the middle of 2013.

  • U.K. inflation rate drops to record low [View news story]
    Dear editors: Hate to interfere with the distorted picture you're painting but you forgot to include the following from the story: "Core inflation accelerated to 1.4 percent in January from 1.3 percent in December. This ‘'highlights the fact that the U.K. is far from suffering generalized deflation,’' Archer said."

  • June rate hike chorus grows louder [View news story]
    And I thought we were teetering on the edge of the Fed devaluing our currency [and diminishing bond-holders real returns] by insisting on some artificial inflation target.

  • Concerns grow over Comcast/Time Warner Cable combo [View news story]
    I hope you are wrong. It is not a healthy thing for this country to have the monopoly news and information gatekeeper to most urban areas controlled [because of Comcast's dual-class stock setup] by one family. JMHO

  • Eurozone prices fall at record pace [View news story]
    Dear Ed: Six-tenth's of one percent year-over-year is a "plunge"? Be careful, you might run out of adjectives ;-) You also forgot to mention you were talking about the headline number and that year-over-year there was core inflation, not deflation [obviously a big decline in oil prices brought the headline number down]. And BTW, the consensus generally is that a decline in oil prices is a good thing for the European economy; not a bad thing.

  • Harsh words for Caesars after bankruptcy case goes to Chicago [View news story]
    Do "harsh words" carry any legal weight whatsoever since he agreed to what Caesar's wanted?

  • Shell to build petrochemical plant in Iraq [View news story]
    With corporate borrowing rates very low, I'm curious what they are referring to re the "high capital costs" of the Qatar project.

  • China shares plunge on margin-trading ban [View news story]
    I don't use margin accounts so I don't mind admitting that I'm not sure what the following means: "the three brokerages had rolled over margin-trading contracts for a large number of clients, in violation of existing rules."
    Does this mean that the brokerage firms were not making margin calls? Any explanation/clarification would be appreciated.
