  • The smooth ride of the first few weeks of 2012 is coming to an end soon, a gloomy Charles Reinhard of Morgan Stanley says, pointing to policy ineptitude on both sides of the Atlantic that will make for rough sailing ahead. Take your profits now: "The economy is still fragile, and until we see a light at the end of the tunnel, we think it’s better to drive more cautiously."  [View news story]

  • The Troika will need a permanent presence in Greece with authority before the bailout can proceed, an EU source tells Dow Jones. Additionally, an escrow account will need to be set up to ensure rescue funds are used to pay debt. (previous)  [View news story]
    the starve card is overplayed .....many countries have gone thru a hard default and fixed there economies faster.
    the truth is the eu doesnt want contagion ......the greeks should give the euro keys to the eu and say see you later.

    they will get emergency funding from the imf and have no debt. its what corporations do every day.

  • Don't get carried away by today's misplaced optimism over the ECB and Greece, says Art Cashin. It's more a "sigh-of-relief" rally than anything else. Greece is just the immediate, right-now issue, but the problem isn't going away anytime soon. Soon we'll have to deal with Portugal, and then Italy. (video)  [View news story]
    ism is negative for every industrialized nation.
    unemployement has also risen across the board ....our numbers are slightly better at 8.5 but thats debatable.
    growth forecasts for every nation lowered.

    these are facts.

  • Priceline (PCLN) kills off William Shatner's Negotiator character in a new 30-second TV spot set to begin airing Monday. "Save yourselves - some money," he says as he and a bus of panicked vacationers tumble off a bridge. After Shatner's 14-year run as Priceline's pitchman, the company says an advertising change is needed as it shifts from a name-your-price model to a fixed-price approach.  [View news story]

  • Netflix (NFLX -2.6%) gives back some of its recent gains following a critical note from Caris' David Miller. Miller thinks Netflix will guide for operating losses for at least the next 2 quarters during Wednesday's Q4 report, and remains concerned about the potential for higher licensing payments to EPIX. However, B. Riley's Eric Wold is lifting his PT to $125 on hopes of better-than-expected domestic subscriber growth.  [View news story]
    eric wold must be kidding . other then fraud ..there is NO possible way they can state customer growth . there are so many way to get streaming video for free in europe and the customer base in the united states is dwindling.
    hulu , blockbuster , coinstar and rising content cost will soon send this company where kodak now sits.
    they need a big brother like amzn or they are finished. the only people buying the stock are hedge funds and institutions looking for a positive performance for bonuses.

    this is the clear pump and dump company.

    housing and construction have joined the party ? really ?
    i have no clue at the indicators you mention got better ?

    from europe to asia to the united states every single data point has gotten worse . the world is deleveraging and it is eating growth. 2 months of a great mkt rally doesnt make a market .

    things will eventually need to get flushed out to build a better foundation for growth .

    as i post ..portugal 10 yr hits 15 % . get ready for another bailout and more voluntary haircuts.

  • Steve Schwarzman to the Fed: none of your business. Blackstone (BX) is changing the structure of its 14.1% stake in BankUnited (BKU) after CEO Schwarzman balked at providing personal financial information to the Fed. It isn't clear why Schwarzman is so sensitive about it, except that he doesn't exactly hold the government in high regard.  [View news story]
    another billionaire in the 15 % tax bracket . its called ego.
    schwarzman is a tool.

  • "An acceptable deal now seems reachable, perhaps as early as this week," says a senior banker of Greek debt restructuring talks. As floated last night, bondholders would see a loss of 68% in NPV terms. One person close to the talks cautions it was this time last week a deal was thought to be at hand, but things collapsed by Friday.  [View news story]
    that is one heck of a voluntary haircut.

  • The Eurogroup hits the tape saying it will do "whatever it takes" to overcome the crisis, and is exploring options to maintain the EFSF's AAA rating. France and Austria together account for 23% of the rescue fund's backing. Add in the PIIGS, and a majority of the EFSF's capital comes from non-AAA countries - it's unclear how a AAA can be maintained.  [View news story]
    i think they should have a summitt to talk about it . this always works well.

    im curious if there is an affair going on between merkel and sarkozy ...thats a lot of talk with nothing getting done. ugh .

  • Dow Jones reports S&P Managing Director John Chambers as saying the agency will complete its review of the EFSF next week. Given the downgrade from AAA of one of its key backers (France), it's hard to see how a downgrade of the rescue fund can't be in the cards. (previous)  [View news story]
    the ecb is bernie madoff with a title. utter nonsense that france or italy could bail out any country when they themselves are under water.

  • The EU is set to recommend sanctions against Hungary for not doing enough to bring its deficit below 3% of GDP. This sets in motion the next stage of the Excessive Debt Procedure at which the country could be shut out of the EU cohesion fund. For the record: 23 of 27 EU states are running deficits above 3%.  [View news story]
    so all is well in europe .

    what a joke these so called leaders are . i am shocked that there isnt more unrest aka egypt in these countries. merkel . sarkozy and the like have no business running a country much less running the euro.
