  • The Affordable Care Act actually discourages small businesses from growing, says's Robert Weinstein. Buried within 2,700 pages of the Act is a requirement that businesses provide all employees with "acceptable" health insurance coverage, but exempts businesses with 49 or fewer full time employees. For small business owners, this is a glaring disincentive not to grow beyond 49 employees as a result of the costs and additional regulations companies face with 50 or more.  [View news story]

  • After his pompous declaration that there's "no risk" the U.S. will lose its AAA credit rating and other statements, Geithner has downgraded his own credibility to "junk," Jonathan Weil writes. "The problem for leaders who make indefensible claims like this one is that, after a while, nobody knows whether to believe anything they say."  [View news story]
    Somebody needs to pull the plug on Turbo Tim.

    " Oh, but people will get hurt", some may whine and whimper.

    So be it.

  • Investors are growing increasingly bullish about stocks, which might just be a sign that most of the good news is already behind us.  [View news story]
    I like the immediate thumbs down on correction calls. Telling really...

  • There’s no denying that the economy has been stuck in the mud, but Obama might want to reconsider his remarks about a “decade in which, frankly, that can-do spirit had been lost... prevent[ing] more Googles from being created." Maybe he forgot about Apple and Facebook, and doesn't know that the most-ever U.S. patent applications were granted during the decade.  [View news story]
    Too many patents are granted, mostly for minor variations in technology. They don't make the world a better place. Most don't payoff. Just get the Lawyers paid.

  • S&P 500 futures +0.4% don't yet suggest a positive tone to tomorrow's open. Futures continued to fall Friday following the close of stock trading. The gain this evening just brings the S&P back to where it stood at 4PM Friday afternoon. Earlier: Still no deal. [View news story]
    "2014 Dem controlled House if we don't. Win-win".

    ----- Please enlighten me, who exactly wins if the House goes Democrat (aside from you, and your obvious Liberal affectation) ?

  • U.S. Stock Market Complacency On Verge Of Collapse [View article]
    I think this is especially true with respect to the VIX. It would be much, much higher were it not for the Bernanke market PUT.

  • Get Ready for Another 'Sell in May and Go Away' Year [View article]
    Must agree whole-heartedly. But always be prepared to get fully smoked on the short positions, as we are fighting the Fed.

  • AIG (AIG) offers the NY Fed $15.7B for Maiden Lane II - a company the Fed created to rescue some of AIG's mortgage-backed bonds and stem its cash bleed. If accepted, the deal would reduce the taxpayer price-tag for AIG's rescue to $72B, and the Fed would log a $1.5B profit on Maiden Lane II.  [View news story]
    AIG- You suck. Why you never went to zero like Lehman ?

  • Are we headed for another Lehman? The global economy confronts massive hurdles, the euro appears fundamentally broken, investor sentiment is fragile, and those in charge don’t seem to fully grasp the problems at hand and have failed to provide strong solutions. Yes indeed, PragCap says, "the potential is there for a crisis far worse than Lehman" - which should have us concerned, not to mention furious.  [View news story]
    Just don't be too smug. The government will interfere and you will probably be left bitter...,.,

  • Hitting the wires as Europe closes is Ulrich Schroeder, the head of KfW - a German Development Bank. Saying many banks are hardly able to finance themselves, he believes the current situation of the banking industry is much more dramatic than 2008.  [View news story]
    The market does not care if you or I or anybody are "happy". The world does not care if you are happy or sad. Make the best of it, and you can enjoy happiness.
    Naysayers don't make the market go down, any more than the 'Pumpers' who perpetually propel the market higher (and this bias is always up, so they are more nefarious in my view). Naysayers provide proper price discovery and provide you with much better buying opportunities than you would otherwise have if markets were one continuous bullish stampede. So stick with your convictions. Good luck.
