  • Picking From Mediocrity  [View article]
    I added to LMT yesterday although I prob should have waited for 185. I like the company. They are a branch of .gov basically. It's like owning 3% treasury bonds with cap app potential. I own GD as well.

  • Boston Beer: More Pain Ahead  [View article]
    I will leave the stats two you guys. Bottom line to me is this company has found a way to get Budweiser exposure and keep some of the craft brew charm that put them on the map. They have two taps at least at every bar. Boston, and the seasonal brew, and they sell. Their beer actually tastes good and the price is right. I agree that it is expensive but I see the value.

  • What A Biotech Sell-Off Will Look Like  [View article]
    These massive buy backs are going to continue. If a short term black out causes stocks to drop I don't see why it would not just be a buying opp knowing the buy backs are coming again.

  • Watch For A Gold Rally Into The Summer Months  [View article]
    This was a rare decent cnbc article. The interesting part about it was I think they finally leaked the truth behind why the market has been rigged to go higher since 2008..."

    Yet it was in her discussion of what she termed "special risks and other considerations" where things got interesting. The first of her three special concerns around hiking rates run along the following lines:

    "Some recent studies have raised the prospect that the economies of the United States and other countries will grow more slowly in the future as a result of both demographic factors and a slower pace of productivity gains from technological advances," the Fed chief stated. "At an extreme, such developments could even amount to a type of 'secular stagnation,' in which monetary policy would need to keep real interest rates persistently quite low relative to historical norms to promote full employment and price stability, absent a highly expansive fiscal policy," she added.

    The article makes it seem like the fed is concerned about that going forward but in reality the ZIRP/NIRP market rigged environment we are currently in has come about because the fed realized a while back that we are stuck in secular stagnation and have been for some time. The fed is hesitant to just come out and say it's zirp4eva because everyone will pile all in to the market at once.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time For An Economic Spring Thaw?  [View article]
    I guess that is your issue SD, I am not saying it is going up because it is failing to do what I predicted. I am saying it is rigged because it is rigged. This is not tin foil hat stuff anymore. They rigged it because it was the right thing to do, and I agree with the other poster that we won't see corrections of anything more than the 10% Variety from here on out.

    Why play for 3% dips when you can just stay in and get the 10% plus gains overall per year that the fed has guaranteed?

  • It's Time To Start Shorting The U.S. Dollar  [View article]
    At first I am inclined to tell you that you will get blowtorched shorting the USD but it's a good contrarian call. The bet is that the fed will be forced to ease against their own will just to keep the USD from rocketing to the moon and crashing everything in it's wake. I don't think we are there yet and I am not sure that play will work if they are ever forced to do it. But If there was aver a trade going against the grain, this is it. Good luck to you.

  • Fed Funds Not So Easy: Major Implications For Stocks  [View article]
    What has The fed done to make you believe they are concerned about the middle and lower classes? QE was not designed to help them, and so it did not. Yet you repeatedly stated that you believe their motivation is to help them and are concerned about them. I just don't understand how you arrived at that conclusion.

    No no no go back and read the article. They care a ton

    "Right or wrong, Fed Chair Janet Yellen believes that the Fed can help struggling American families by keeping monetary policy highly accommodative"

    "I think Yellen is focused on total employment and wages. She wants those to rise."

    "I think she is more concerned with the absolute living standards of the poor and lower middle class than she is with income distribution per se"

    the best part is they are WILLING to risk blowing a bubble in the markets, note they have not done this yet, no bubble currently...

    "If this monetary stimulus means higher stock prices, so be it. Yellen is not going to short circuit the economic recovery and hoped for improvements in employment and wages in order to "preempt" the formation of asset bubbles."

    6 years later, QE up the wazoo...middle class and lower class in the dumper while we still "hope for improvements in employment and wages" and asset prices rocketing higher ever still....but their motivation is pure....
