    Pretty awesome that this guy can meet with Tim Cook. Buy the stock. Tweet it out and the watch his own impact on the stock. I can only hope for his sake that he sold his own news and completely cashed in on this crooked system.

  • Low Interest Rates Ahead [View article]
    play it out. The fed tapers. The stock market tanks. People flee to bonds and yields drop.

    Then what? Then we realize that interest rates can never actually go up. Because if 4 years of a raging stock market run up turns out to be just a bubble that pops the minute interest rates go up, then all we are left with is a stock market on life support from the fed.

    The great irony is that the fed will have to increase QE to get people back into stocks, and that risk on will drive yields up again. Eventually the realization sets in that money printing is a permanent policy and can never be stopped.

  • The Risk Of Runaway U.S. Inflation With A Fed In Handcuffs [View article]
    The fed is not impotent. Far from it. Bernanke said he could raise rates in 15 minutes if he needed to....and just to show the awesomeness of the fed, interest rates rose 100bps on the 10yr without him even raising them, That's how good he is.

    Of course that happened when he responded to a question by answering "uh....we were puzzled by that"...but that's neither here nor there....

    "An obvious policy instrument is gold, which is largely held by civilians"

    What? Maybe own the etf. But i'd say 1 in 100 have an ounce of the real thing.

    Okay, and as long as we are not filtering things and look at them through the lense of reality, this is a bubble. So don't get pissed at me for calling it what it is.

    "That's exactly what happened in Russian revolution. Rich people were kicked out of their mansions and those mansions are converted to small flats for many families."

    You are okay with this? I'm not judging I am just trying to understand you. You seem to make two very different arguments.

    okay now you are a complete mess. If you think guiding down and lowering expectations quarter to quarter only to mostly come up short or barely meet those revised down expectations is underpromising and overdelivering that explains a lot.

    who said I was short? The topic is bubble or bargain, not "how are you trading this market?".

    At what point did I say I was short? My god what is wrong with you people. Why can't you call it for what it is. No one says you can't make money along the way.

    "If you don't have money to allocate to assets but barely fulfilling your expenses then you are victim of natural selection"

    Very interesting. If one of those victims of natural selection seeks out one of those rich people and robs them blind in a literal sense to compensate for the fact that they have been robbed by the rich, does that make the rich guy a victim of natural selection?

    "QE may not solve anything in real economy but it inflated the asset prices".

    You think that sentence is an example of capitalism?

    Seriously?

    The banks loved it because they were allowed to go to Mark to unicorn, dump their toxic loans on the taxpayer and then get the gift of QE4eva to buy up distressed homes for pennies on the dollar which they are now renting out or flipping back to the public.

    They never lost hundreds of billions of dollars and their bonuses the last 5 years reflect that.
