Still, he says, there may be opportunities in the pullback, particularly in the bank, tech and industrial spaces. Just says away from anything with a higher yield, like utilities and MLP's. [View news story]

    Don't worry; the big banks are the modern day mafia who will continue to be allowed to rape and pillage taxpayers and shareholders. And we will continue to bail them out time after time.

    Of course the same rules should be applied to ALL companies, regardless!

  • "With no recession in sight, we find it hard to make a bear case," says HSBC, noting that "the first tightening in a cycle … typically causes only a short-lived correction in stocks." The bank's global head of equity strategy Garry Evans says the combination of a "data dependent" taper, 10% earnings growth, and relatively conservative valuations makes for some attractive opportunities especially in financial stocks (XLF) which he says are cheap and poised for strong earnings momentum. HSBC also prefers U.S. equities (SPY, VTI) to other markets. [View news story]

  • More on Capital Ratios of U.S. Banks [View article]
    Capital ratios are only meaningful for small banks as they can fail. For the larger ones, who present the systemic risk, they are meaningless as they are too politically connected to fail.

    Does anyone really believe that this situation will change? Not as long as the big banks and few remaining brokers are able to fund the dc stooges retirements.
