  • Lenovo (LNVGY.PK) can't afford to buy BlackBerry (BBRY -4%) even if it wanted to, argues Pac Crest's James Faucette, trying to cool off fresh speculation on the subject. BlackBerry's current market cap of $7.4B isn't far removed from Lenovo's $11.2B, he notes. Moreover, Lenovo has only $4.1B in cash, and the company would have to hold onto $2.4B of it to maintain its traditional minimum cash-to-sales ratio of 7%. [View news story]
    Considering BBRY prides itself on network security, I should think no chance of selling to a Chinese co....

  • Crude oil continues to march higher, May WTI taking out the $110/barrel level last seen in the summer of 2008 (it was on the way down then).

  • The about inline payroll report was just fine for stocks - where the Dow (DIA +1.2%) is up nearly 200 points at lunchtime - but it's too fast for Treasurys where the 10-year yield has jumped 7 bps to 2.14%, and the long bond price has dropped nearly a full point. [View news story]

  • ´╗┐´╗┐Market recap: Stocks rallied from the open and stayed sharply higher, as Ireland edged closer to a bailout, the Philly Fed report showed surprising manufacturing strength, and GM made a triumphant return to the public market. A weak dollar sparked a broad based rally in commodities, and Treasury prices pared losses. NYSE advancers led decliners three to one.  [View news story]
    Idiotic; the market gapped higher then spent the day sideways...please get your facts straight, since you're actually employed to do so....

  • China is set to become the world's second-largest economy this year, an incredibly impressive feat for a still-developing nation that has 150M citizens below the poverty line. By 2020, China is likely to overtake the U.S. as the world's No. 1 economy.  [View news story]
    Really? Is anyone else concerned that the so-called oncoming largest economy (which means largest defense budget too,) which calls the shots on trade, is also communist? Sometimes I feel like we're selling our children to buy another Christmas....

  • More from the minutes on the March FOMC meeting: Several members say if labor market conditions improve as anticipated, it would probably be appropriate to slow purchases later in the year and to stop them by the end of the year. The consensus projection is that inflation will be subdued through 2015. [View news story]
