  • Jobless Claims at 304K [View news story]
    That's how I read it. Looks like banking problems in Portugal. Tiny country. I'm still waiting for a correction pushed on by nervousness and profit taking. Problem is, the low of the correction may be a number that is higher than what the market is currently at.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time For A Mid-Course Correction? [View article]
    Having lived (and invested) through the dot com bubble, I can tell you there is no correlation to today. I was dancing the jig as investors bought companies for their ideas and potential profit from such, driving prices higher and hire. Well, I went from the jig to singing a funeral dirge, like everyone else. Today we are betting on companies increasing their earnings, not pulling them out of thin air.

    Food inflation is another that no one can really control, unless soylent green becomes popular. Weather will wreak havoc on crops.

    With very little wage inflation, I don't see any broad inflationary pressures.

    You are talking about one little corner of the world. Four bedroom homes go for around $220K where I live and the unemployment rate is below national average. I am looking at homes in the Wilmington NC area and places not far from the beach can be had at the same price.

    If one bought when Bush took office and then sold when Obama took office, he/she could forget about retirement.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Is The Fed Behind The Curve? [View article]
    From someone who lived through the 70's and 80's, 2% inflation is a real laugher. I bought my first house at a 13% interest rate.

    High,gas prices caused the mortgage crisis? Stupid loans caused the crisis. Also, a lot of people use natural gas to heat with, which is cheap.

  • U.S. household wealth increases [View news story]
    Exactly. Once the kids moved out of the house and I had more cash - my personal wealth grew very quickly. You can't save when essential expenses are even with salary.

    Thanks for the link. There are many unskilled workers whose jobs are quite physical that simply cannot work anymore.
