  • Half Of U.S. Income Is Over $125,000 Per Year  [View article]
    Yes, If only guys like you could get rid of those who oppose you we could all march down the socialist road singing the "Internationale" or "Socialism Together". Remind us: which brand do you prefer? Russian, Chinese, Venezuelan, Nazi German, Argentinian, Brazilian? Or maybe it's Swedish or British. No matter, each has its adherents and bloated bureaucracies, it's just that some enforce the rules with sharper bayonets.

    So I guess this means that 80 plus years of government meddling in the economy have not produced results that please the big government crowd. It also proves that the main thing people learn from history is that governments don't learn from history. We are truly doomed to repeat all of the worst aspects of top down economic repression.

  • 5 Huge Misunderstandings About The Current Investing Environment  [View article]
    I agree with most of this but your "wash" theory doesn't wash. As of 10/2015, the latest EIA count of petroleum imported to the US was still over 272,000,000 BBL/month. Not spending on foreign oil but at BBBY is not any kind of “wash” for the U.S. economy. The fact that QE-ing has chased money into trading assets instead of capital assets accounts for our economic sluggishness yet, except for the Foreign producer who has to cut back as she sells less here, our economy improves slightly. Moreover, energy is used in every facet and sector of the U.S. economy. Lower prices for oil positively effects every manufacturer, retailer and homeowner. So, no low oil does add to our national bottom line. That much of the newly discovered oil & gas are from high cost operations will offset some of the gains but that energy is still in the ground - in this country and if we ever get out of the Central Bank price fixing trap and return sane economic policies, those low oil prices will be an added assist.

    There are currently only 4 of the Dow components with more buyers than sellers. Valuation are wonderful tools and eventually work out. For those who want to avoid losses however, knowing where the money flows is more important.

    Thanks for providing someone (or many?) to catch this falling knife. Big money is leaving the premises and until I can see it returning, I'm out.

  • By Reader Request: Simulating 150 Basis Point Shock For Annaly Capital Management  [View article]
    Good stuff.My guess is that a short term rate increase of 25 or 50 BP would not have much impact unless they were part of a longer term program of raises. This economy isn't sufficiently strong to withstand too much Fed pressure and if there was a mistake and the Bank pushed rates too far, the result would be curve inversion as the economy slowed. Also likely: rates get to +150 BP in 25 BP raises. L/T rates follow for about the first 100 BP then level off. If the economy slows then L/T rates begin to fall.

    Cannot agree more. Value premium + trend momentum that indicates when the market spots the value = investing success.

    That business about the "value" of their spectrum reminds me of the "value" locked inside EK and many many others like it. It will cost a lot less to pick it up in Chap 7.

    The charts stink as selling dominates the stock. It may be a buy but at $2. Bad balance sheet, poor management and operating plan. What's not to like?
