  • WSJ: Saudi Arabia to pull back crude production after summer [View news story]
    Spokesperson for CLB said that he didn't think SA or Russia could keep pumping the same way for much longer because if they do water will leech into the wells and contaminate them. If he is right, they don't have a choice but to reduce their output. Watch for upgrades in the oil patch for those that survived.

    BTW, he also said that Iranian oil is very high in sulfur content, making it much more expensive to refine and less desirable.

    I forgot, Pell grants for prisoners is being stored. Guess they figured it was a better use of Federal funds.

    Just read that SS will not be giving a COLA to recipients for 2016. That's right, nothing. Heck my electric went from .16KWH to .25KWH, what is someone on SS going to do? Get a job at VZ ? Why don't SS recipients unionize and march on Washington? Or bus it, walkers and all.

    You must be referring to Yucca Mountain. And you mean the Govt suing the Govt? Kind of redundant don't you think. Besides, those are the lines that are drawn by the Supreme Court on States rights issues.

    Only 7% of the US econ is exports and lower foreign currencies mean still cheaper imports for US consumers. How exactly does that hurt US centric companies that do not count on overseas business? And how exactly does that lead to US recession?

    And it still means those of means in the world rushing to buy US currency to beat the devaluation in their own. Sometimes they do it with US real estate, sometimes with US equities. I agree that its not sustainable and its not healthy but it is temporarily good for US consumers.

    It just stops being good when the world gets better and those that put money in, start taking money out. And it is true that US multinationals will not bring money back until it makes sense to do so and in this scenario, it doesn't. Maybe they'll just use those very strong US profits to buy cheap EU and Asian X China companies.

    That may turn out to be true but it also means gold at $850, oil at $40, US international companies the tip of the spear that gets harmed but US centric with little to no international exposure should boom as cheap imports feed consumers appetites. In that scenario, the US consumer and US consumer goods do the best. And in that scenario, Yellen can raise. How would that resolve your long bond expectation?

  • Boeing looks to cut titanium in bid to stem 787 losses [View news story]
    I meant labor costs, seat components, accessories, etc. There must be dozens of items that can be replaced or done away with altogether. And that's not even mentioning a cut in their own bureaucracy. And I saw a video of a three D printer setup the size of an airplane hanger that was manufacturing parts of the plane robotically and doing it for half the cost and right here in River City. A squeeze on prices can be a good thing, it makes you more efficient.

  • Sharing millennials still a drag on retail sales [View news story]
    You sound like a boomer, not a Millie and yes the seventies were tough but we did indeed abide and so will they. But, that said, some of the structural underpinnings of this economy have changed and personally, I don't think it will be so easy for them or this economy going forward. But maybe its the sushi I had for lunch.
