  • Global airline ETF set to launch [View news story]
    Dear Editor: I think you got your information wrong. It's ancillary revenue [e.g., baggage fees, in-flight meals, etc.] that was $31.5 billion in 2013, up from $2.5 billion in 2007. See the "research" tab at the U.S. global website.

  • More challenge Verizon's new TV bundles [View news story]
    This is a perfect example of why the Comcast Time-Warner merger should be blocked. Vertically integrated, owning both cable programing and the cable distribution system, Comcast tries to stop any innovation that threatens the over-priced bundled program offering it controls. If the merger were to go through, Comcast would have even more power to stifle improved consumer options.

    It remains to be seen whether they are linked.

    Speaking of London...does anyone have any good guesses on what impact the UK election in a few weeks will have on the markets?

  • Draghi: Euro is irrevocable despite Greek problems [View news story]
    Enjoy your articulate point of view, as always, but I wonder if the markets are a better oddsmaker than your "0.0000000001%" assessment. As you probably know, the yield on the 10-yr Greek sovereign rose 166 basis points last week to 12.9%.

  • Switzerland first to issue 10-year debt with negative yield [View news story]
    One could say that government bonds are increasingly functioning as a safe deposit box, with the negative yield serving as the annual safe deposit box fee.

  • Job gain of just 126K in March [View news story]
    How many employers will continue filling vacant job positions if the Fed Funds rate target goes up by 25 or 50 basis points? Just about everyone IMHO.

  • Eurozone manufacturing growth revised higher [View news story]
    Dear editor:

    When you say "Economic momentum in the eurozone is picking up as the ECB continues its €60B a month QE program and a weaker euro aids exporter" aren't you double counting? After all, the euro is weaker primarily because the ECB earlier announced its QE plans. Also, the idea that a bond buying program that only began a few weeks ago would have a measurable impact on such things as March's inflation, which you linked it to the other day, and economic activity, already is a stretch. JMHO

  • 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.
