  • The Punk March Jobs Report Looks Primarily Like An Oil Patch Story [View article]
    Actually might want to look at the age breakout of job gainers and loosers. 25-54 -63k. Over 55 +300k. Since the recession, retirees have been the largest job gainers but quite a magnitude. This suggests current new crop of workers do not have the job skills required and/or retirees are coming out of retirement due to financial strains.

    The only thing JNJ might split is its stock. The diversity of the company is its strength.

  • A Month To Forget For The Gold Miners [View article]
    Global X $GGGG is liquidating its fund. The low price most likely is shutting down the more expensive mines. Look for this trend to continue, which could cause a squeeze on the supply side as Asia/India seem to still have high demand.

  • NAHB Housing Market Index at 59 [View news story]
    Take it in context...home sales are way below where they were in 2005. We are at 1990 levels.

    To top it all off, the economy (namely the average person) is less wealthy than they were in 2005. After 2005 the wheels came off the bus and the whole thing fell apart.

    If the Fed signals a more hawkish tone expect a spike as people run out to grab lower mortgage rates before the door slams shut.

  • Jobless Claims +11K to 315K [View news story]
    Sure for the top 30%. Majority of people it continues to decline. Their wealth is still in recession.

    And total debt/liabilities is over $59T

    Workforce participation is lower than in 2011

    Economic 'growth' forgot to trickle down... And this is with untold $Trillions and forced historic low interest rates. If the rates rise, what little economic 'recovery' will go into reverse.
