  • Fixed-income CEFs still on sale [View news story]
    I'm guessing some of these discounted CE funds are leveraged and also am guessing that a lot of the leverage is done at the short-end of the yield curve. How will the expected rise in short-term rates impact those funds' returns going forward?

    Is the FBI more capable of conducting this type of inquiry than the SEC?

  • Obamacare could hit 7M goal as deadline looms [View news story]
    Couldn't some of the increased interest in enrolling be explained by the fact that the government extended the deadline by a year or two for a lot of businesses to offer health insurance, so that a lot of employees who were expecting to get health insurance through their business found themselves having to get individual plans instead?

  • Gap increases its minimum hourly wage [View news story]
    Yes, GAP probably don't own them directly but that doesn't mean it doesn't exercise significant influence over how much the workers are paid.

    I wonder how much Gap pays the people in developing countries who make many of the clothes?

  • Obamacare's got an age problem [View news story]
    I would think it's to be expected that those most in need of cheaper insurance [the older and the sick] would be the first to sign up for the new plans. We'll have to wait a few months to see if the those signing up going forward skew younger.

    They mention the impact of gasoline price deflation, but what about the impact on comparable sales of the prices they've raised on some of their other products ;-)

  • Bernanke less certain of taper this year [View news story]
    My off-the-cuff guess is that this week's taper interruptus has little to do with the idea that "chairman may not be interested in seeing another bond market blow-up." It wouldn't surprise me that when the FOMC minutes are released in five years, this week's decision is seen as something of a rebuke to Bernanke. In June the chairman wandered off the reservation with his comments about what the FOMC would do. That was quickly followed, you will remember, with the unusual spectacle of just about every FOMC member trying to reel the chairman’s comments back in. This week's vote merely confirms that the majority of FOMC members were not following his lead regarding the taper.

  • EU stocks down as markets wait on the FOMC [View news story]
    Ultimately it's the bond market (and not the FOMC) in setting longer-term interest rates, that will determine whether tapering contributes to a tightening.

  • Moody's upgrades outlook on U.S. states [View news story]
    And yes, there is often a delay before rising property values are reflected in tax assessments, but you would think generally rising house prices would still be reflected in the cities' "Outlook."
