  • Feb. Nonfarm Payrolls: +227K vs. consensus of +215K, +284K (revised from 243K) in Jan. Unemployment 8.3% vs 8.3% expected. Average workweek unchanged at 34.5 hours, inline. Average hourly earnings +0.1%.  [View news story]
    There are so many adjustments in these reports it's rather difficult to get a true understanding of actual job creation. But I'm sure you just take at face value whatever the government force feeds you.

    I bet all those people Obama is supposedly fighting for (cough b*llsh*t cough) were fully invested during March 2009. Wake up Terry: Bernanke, Obama and clan are only helping the rich get richer (all the banksters!) and putting all the less fortunate U.S. citizens on food stamps permanently. Lets not forget shifting the ever-growing burden of debt repayment to future generations. Totally bullish. Unfortunately secular economic growth is not built on this deplorable strategy.

    Talk about gaming the numbers

  • "I wouldn't take QE3 off the table ever," says the Fed's James Bullard, speaking on CNBC. On the other hand, he's optimistic about the economy, seeing 3% growth possible in 2012 with unemployment falling to 7.8% by year's end.  [View news story]
    <p>It's quite obvious the issue is not an interest rate/monetary issue; we've had ZIRP for 3 1/2 years and we're not even growing above 3% GDP per year. Mortgage rates are at historic lows and the housing market is still abysmal! This comment from Jim is making Joe Kernan smile like the Grinch (as we all know Kernan is fully invested).</p>

  • President Obama signs the payroll tax bill into law, which will extend payroll-tax cuts through the end of 2012, prolong extended unemployment benefits, and prevent a cut in pay for doctors who treat Medicare patients. The House and Senate passed the bill last week.  [View news story]
    You're talking about the same "leader" who could care less about a balanced budget and reducing our government debt? The same "leader" who is supposedly fighting for the less fortunate, but at the same time causing inflation in everyday purchases thereby severely diminishing the real income/wealth of the less fortunate? The same "leader" who rewards laziness through 151 weeks of unemployment benefits? The same "leader" who is turning America into a Socialist society? The same "leader" who refuses to work with his own party at certain points to pass his own agenda? Just checking. And last time I checked we're in a slow growth phase, so why the continued debt run-up at both the fiscal and monetary level?

  • Treasury scrambled to convince S&P away from downgrading the U.S. in the days and hours leading up to the Aug. 5 move, according to newly obtained emails. As it became evident S&P was going to move ahead, Treasury desperately floated a story the ratings agency had muffed a simple calculation, but it was to no avail.  [View news story]
    And it only took 7 months for this info to be leaked... haha. Clearly someone didn't want the public to know!

  • Apple beats estimates, guides in-line [View news story]
    What a fantastic quarter. I enjoy all of Apple's products, except I haven't yet pulled the trigger on an iPad; I see no reason to purchase one myself. Not sure about the iWatch. I'll have to wait and see. I like traditional luxury watches and not sure I want yet another electronic device (particularly on my wrist.)

    Thanks David. Take a look at the percentages for the mutual funds in figure 2: they don't add to 100%. Also, VDC and VCSAX track the exact same index and have the same returns.

  • Apple: Let's Not Get Ahead Of Ourselves [View article]
    Bill: very well said. I think people need to understand that the growth rates of Tesla, LinkedIn, etc. are and can be much higher than Apple's growth rate given the size of the companies.

  • iOS 8, HealthKit platform announced; iOS device sales top 800M [View news story]
    @Deja Vu: I saw some of the changes to iOS 8 and thought the exact same thing. Apple is certainly taking features of Android and tossing it into iOS.

  • KGI: Apple launching bigger iPhones, iWatch, 12" MacBook Air in 2014 [View news story]
    I agree. Apple should have been here a while ago like everyone else.

    On another note, I read a few articles that suggest the iPhone 6 may only have 1 GB of RAM. This would be disappointing too. Obviously not set in stone as it's just a rumor, but at this stage in the game Apple should have at least 2 GB and have a phone that is able to fully utilize that amount of RAM. For a company that prides itself on having the best products and having large cash coffers, step up Apple!

  • Apple: Short-Term Caution Is Justified [View article]
    @Gary J: Isn't that what most pro-Apple SA members do? I see comments frequently about how Apple will hit $800 or $1,000 / share by a certain date (normally in the near future).
