  • Bernanke Is Underwriting The Wealthy [View article]
    Dividends.....
    ....S&P500 companies distributed 33% of their earnings, as dividends in 2011 !
    In 2012, the S&P 500 companies bribed their shareholders with 38% of earnings and still doing it !
    15% increase in dividend payout in a year(Now that the monopoly money is free and Congress is kicking the can down the road!)?
    Now, profit margins are shrinking; S&P 500, year to date earnings are down .5%.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    S&P 500 companies?, are they to follow the Dow Utilities?
    Year to date, Utilities' earnings are down 31%.
    Year ago 2011 dividends comprised of 60 % of earnings.
    This year to date >> >> >> >> >> of 93% of earnings.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Any Utilities too big to fail ?
    =
    Will dividend cut, anouncements, be the straw that broke the "market's" back !?
    =
    With Bernanke, lauding the QEnfinity, I don't see anything else!

  • Why We Must Stop Deficits Now [View article]
    GDP = Total in dollars of Goods & Services
    Medicare is: The services, from the doctor and specialist; the goods, are the medicines, the vitamins and the diapers.
    Total cost of patient reciprocates to the benefit of the others.
    ~~~~
    The problem is that the patient spends money which has to be collected by Taxes, fees, levies, fines etc. which, seems never to be enough because, p r o d a c t i v i t y is lacking and we are running a 1 / 2 Trillion Dollar deficit per year.
    ~~~~
    Hypothetical thinking: Chinese and Indians, about two billion of them, still, think USA as modern P a r a d i s e !!!

  • In a bit of a wonky presentation, St. Louis Fed chief Bullard says one measure suggests current policy is far easier than what the Taylor Rule would mandate, and an argument can be made for rate hikes as early as August. His own personal forecast, he says, would see unemployment falling to 6.5% and mandating higher rates in June 2014. Stocks are at session lows, whether from the suggestion of imminent hikes or the realization the Fed has little more clue than the man on the street. [View news story]

  • Cash Hoards On The Sidelines And The Great Rotation: Old Myths Meet A New Reality [View article]
    Who can tell what my IQ at this point is!?
    Y / Y growth :
    Retail Sales, + 2 %
    Credit growth, + 6%
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Credit is 50% of Retail sales..

    Without credit, retail sales , - 1%

    Public company's profit margin is 5%.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~...
    If this is the oracle, the publick company's stock price will end up 20% shorter.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Those who shorted, ended up 20% cash on the sidelines!
