  • Setting The Stage Of USD Breakout [View article]
    Time will tell if Dudley's prediction about consumers' retrenchment prediction holds true. This muddling through looks here to stay for a while. I don't see consumers getting that excited. Service jobs aren't anything to get excited about. Low oil has hurt good paying jobs from that sector and looks to continue to do so.

    I do agree we will see another leg up in the $USD. Maybe coinciding with another leg down in $WTIC??

    For once, I agree w/ Barron's-take the $ and run. It's like somebody lit a huge bonfire under a dinosaur and the dinosaur FINALLY MOVED QUICKLY. What are the chances that will happen again anytime soon???

  • 2 Companies To Hold For The Next 25 Years [View article]
    I'd hold SLW just for the eventual rise in PM prices over the next 25 years. Tho we're fighting to not get sucked under by deflation at the moment, I believe we will have to deal with some inflation before the next 25 are up. SLW will likely rise considerably when that occurs, and the CG should be pretty good when it finally does.

    I don't know that I would hold it for the next 25 years 'no matter what', as I'd want to harvest those gains as they will likely come sooner than that imo.

  • The U.S. Market Is Overheating [View article]
    Agree completely about earnings being helped with buybacks via ZIRP.

    When the tap stops flowing (buybacks slow down/stop), prices start going (down).

    The market reversal at the end of today bears watching imo.

    Maybe earnings fears or maybe nothing...we shall see.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Stock Futures Drop On Weak Jobs Numbers [View article]
    Great comment, but have to correct you on one thing:

    It was: "Welcome to the party, pal!!!"

    : )

    (sorry, movie nerd...)

  • Is The Long Awaited Correction At Hand? [View article]
    I believe the most important takeaway from this article is watching the level of buybacks, specifically those that are mentioned and/or updated in the upcoming earnings calls. If the consensus is buybacks will slow (or worse) down, I think investors will sense that the financial engineering of earnings (both for paying/increasing divs and for continuing buybacks) is winding down-or at least slowing down.

    The moment big investors sense the tide turning w/re to this issue (if it does), that could be tipping point for a correction.
