  • Draghi press conference: The gist of his prepared remarks suggests the ECB is holding firm in its insistence it won't come to the rescue of governments that (it feels) continue to dally. European shares are shedding some gains, the Stoxx 50 up just 1%. The euro takes a big dive, now back to flat at $1.2457.  [View news story]
    If the Chinese reduce their interest rates it only improves their internal consumption. If the treasury does anything, not that it has to after the Beige book report yesterday, would that not reduce the value of the USD against the EURO? The Euro on the other hand rising does not help the EU which is in a recession? Is'nt Gold the only safe haven? The USD is loosing value, why, if there is no QE3 and no more operation Twist for the time being why is the Euro rising?

  • If Greece exits the eurozone, writes The Tell, the EU should consider replacing it with Turkey. The country's speedy growth and youthful demographics would help a union sorely in need of both. One wonders if the reason Turkey's economy is perky (even overheating) is because it's not part of the eurozone. The EU may want the country, but has anybody checked with Ankara?  [View news story]
    Turkey is not Europe, Central and Middle Eurasia

  • Alongside a wave of regulatory investigations hitting market sentiment this afternoon, former Greek PM Papademos tells Dow Jones preparations for Greece exiting the euro are being considered; the risk of leaving is real. Estimates of a cost of €500B-€1T underscore the magnitude of the consequences, he says.  [View news story]
    I have a "real life" dream- short the Euro and Gold go long long dollar until the DJIA/S&P fall 10% and then the Central banks starts QE3 then buy gold. Start buying all the undervalued German companies that are trading almost at their beginning of the year lows.

    Eur/USD- target 1.10-1.15 end of the year.

    Greece, Spain stay in the EU as our "Bahamas" (discounted) travel paradise for all EU citizens ( i.e. all the islands belong to the ECB), all the Spanish unemployed migrate to Greece and other islands (Mallorca, Ibiza, and start a revolution that Germany finances through its huge increase in exports due to deflated Euro we all eat tapas, enchiladas, salsiki, gyros and drink sangria, Ouzo in the new EU region called "SPAECE", enjoying the Mediterranean sun.

  • The euphoria surrounding the upcoming Facebook (FB) IPO is reaching ridiculous levels, says Information Arbitrage. Retail brokers have stopped taking orders. The offering price range has been dramatically increased. And the amount of stock sophisticated investors and insiders are selling is enormous. So... What should one make of all this? Simple - buyer beware. The hype surrounding the IPO is similar to that of Blackstone's (BX -5.4%) in 2007, which has essentially been dead money ever since.  [View news story]
    75 USD stable- whatever said and done FB is not BX and if they command 900 million users and offer 350 million shares plus then be rest assured that they will be hitting new highs. Greed is a funny thing.....I bet 100 USD at at least will be the high tomorrow.

  • David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital established new positions in Computer Sciences (CSC) and Expedia (EXPE) in Q1.

  • Facebook's (FB) revised S-1 - raising its IPO price range to $34-38 - removes the language saying the Instagram deal will close in Q2, and now says the deal should close sometime in 2012. The company acknowledges the purchase is subject to antitrust review, as tipped several days ago.  [View news story]
    388 million shares out of 2.8 billion shares at a price of 38 USD, not bad, creating a huge demand for further shares and a whole bunch of existing shareholders just dying to sell to collect their millions. 13% is the magic number and how many millions dying to buy retail- +/- 600000000 people all dting to buy at least 100 shares creating a demand for 6 billion traded shares. Green shoe options being exercised.

    This whale is going to sing....now where can we retail investors buy shares?

  • Needham makes a bearish call on chip equipment stocks, and is downgrading Applied Materials (AMAT +0.1%), Ultra Clean Holdings (UCTT -4.3%), and Nova Measuring (NVMI -2.9%) in the process. The firm thinks order rates from major chip manufacturers are decelerating, and is less confident memory capex (ed: no doubt affected by Elpida's bankruptcy and falling flash prices) will rebound in the near-term. Thus, it thinks the Street's growth forecasts are too high.  [View news story]
    how much more will AMAT take?
