  • Oaktreee to exit single-family rental business [View news story]
    I have two different renters this week that are leaving to buy their own home. The last time something like this happened was 2006....

    These institutional investors are starting to dump housing. I will too.

  • Can gold miners deliver on cost and cash flow promises? [View news story]
    ABX and NEM are dogs too. They won't go out of business, but they've proven they can't make money with $1700+ gold.

    I've learned the hard way to just own the metal, and not the miners.

  • Will Today Mark The Beginning Of The End For Monetary Stimulus? [View article]
    We have inflation outpacing wage and GDP growth year after year. That will continue. Inflation will creep up further because that's what the Fed wants.

    The QE will never stop. A few will receive huge benefits from it. Most will see a gradual erosion of their standard of living.

  • Will Today Mark The Beginning Of The End For Monetary Stimulus? [View article]
    Today's taper, if any, will be next to nothing. QE, and stagflation, are here for good.

    If anyone believes we have a self-sustaining recovery, I have a bridge I'd like to sell you.

  • Evans: First hike could come in late 2015 [View news story]
    "the first rate hike could come in late 2015"

    Didn't they say back in 2009 to expect rate hikes in 2010? Geniuses...

  • August Nonfarm Payrolls misses estimates [View news story]
    58.6% of civilians employed. Down from 58.7% last month. In line with numbers from the late 1970's.

    If it smells like a turd sandwich, it's a turd sandwich. No recession. No recovery.

  • Interest Rates Are Up Because The Economy Is Stronger [View article]
    So if rising rates aren't due to Taper, what do you think would happen to rates if the Fed announced "We're not going to taper anytime soon"?

    Rates started rising the moment "Taper" left Bernanke's lips.

  • Futures sharply higher as President hands Syria off to Congress [View news story]
    If he's looking for a way out, he should just man up and say "I'm out".

    Instead, he's passing the buck to Congress to say "No".

    Get that man some Vagisil, quick.

    Kudos to the British and American peoples for their grass roots efforts to avert another mid-East war. This might be a watershed moment.

    Now maybe we can all make some money!

  • Obama to seek Congressional approval on Syria strikes: Clarity or more uncertainty? [View news story]
    "changes his mind" to save lives.

    Um, Obama said he still wants to strike Syria, right?

  • Obama to seek Congressional approval on Syria strikes: Clarity or more uncertainty? [View news story]
    Oh, I'm thrilled he's asking Congress for permission. He should have asked them a week ago when he actually DID intend to strike Syria.

    The rug got pulled out from under Obama when the British people, and the Arab League, said NO to a strike.

    Obama's still a spineless muppet like the rest of us.
