  • Tuesday Outlook: Commodities, Emerging Markets [View article]
    Don't know Weill personally but I wholeheartedly agree w/ you. Incidentally, he has donated a ton of the cash to institutions used solely by the wealthy.....a screw the poor kind of guy. Keep up the good work Dave.

  • Productivity Should Rise as Unemployment Rises: It Isn't [View article]
    Yes, productivity should rise with the level of unemployment. Unfortunately, most people in our society want to sit around and play solitaire, read blogs and surf the web. I am skeptical that there is anyone physically able who can/ will rebuild our roads and bridges and make use of the stimulus plan $.. Laid-off construction workers you say ?? Well let me tell you, those guys can't wait to work for the gov'ment and forgo 6-packs on the job submit to random pee-tests and the like........

  • A Good Time to Buy Apple [View article]
    I think AAPL is great; products and management are world beaters. But you cannot escape the fact that few will be buying any products this year or next, unless they are absolutely necessary. This means that people will defer replacement of PC, Phone and laptops. People reach a point where they do not need any more itunes, and the ipods are pretty durable. You guys should search for value elsewhere, and back up the truck on it at 50 $. It will get there, I am telling you.

    I agree w/ you. Warren has truly lost his marbles.

  • Citigroup's Decline - Not a Good Sign for the Market [View article]
    I also wouldn't be surprised to see a major selloff, and soon. I find the drip-drip-drip of losses more painful than a wham-bam "trading-curbs-in effect" action that is certainly needed to give birth to the proverbial "new bull""

  • Market Death Spiral Continues [View article]
    It has been a slow drip, no "curbs in" action. I expect this to happen very, very soon....

  • Chart of the Week: GDP Worse than Expected [View article]
    Big down revision supports those wishing for a recovery--- all bad new is out and priced into the market, we're 'down to seeds and stems'. Start of a "new bull". I for one don't happen to agree.
