  • 10 Reasons Why A Severe Drop In Oil Prices Is A Problem [View article]
    #3....Oil and Gas extraction and related support jobs make up less than .5% of total jobs. From the beginning of the recovery in mid-2009,this sector added 238,300 jobs,a small fraction of the 9.1 million jobs gained overall.

    "all states benefit from the lower oil imports required."

    all states benefit from lower gasoline prices too....135 billion gallons of gasoline
    consumed a year....

    Texas it will hurt...but California,New York,Illinois ,Ohio,Georgia ,Michigan and especially Florida it will help.

    Sector selloffs are another area of research.

    The S&P Price to Sales at 1.79 is the one metric that has the S&P 500
    overvalued. However it is dangerous to hang your hat solely on that metric
    after all EWI (Italy) has a Price to Sales of .56.....

    When Conference Board Index of Leading Indicators on a year over year
    basis has gone negative it has tended to precede a the y-o-y drop in S&P 500 forward earnings...currently y-o-y LEI is +7.9%....
