  • Maybe this will be one less thing to replace around the house: The House approves a provision to save the 100-watt incandescent light bulb for at least a year. Legislation passed in 2007 would have effectively pushed the traditional bulbs off store shelves, starting with the 100-watt version next year.  [View news story]
    Quoting Warren Buffett
    I could end the deficit in 5 minutes. You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP all sitting members of congress are ineligible for reelection.

    i say fire the politicians! we need new Leaders!

  • Deere & Co. to Profit From Increasing Agriculture Demand [View article]
    i look at it this way, if the CEO of the company (DE) Deere tells me that they are bullish, i will believe them unless they are lying LOL
    Deere raises its dividend and signalling expansion of production facilities in India & China
    Deere CEO went ahead and told us that business was strong in Brazil and Russia
    www.bloomberg.com/news...

    look unless he's a liar, i think we should give him a chance to prove himself, Deere seems to be dominating in high growth BRIC nations, and the weak US dollar will further boost earnings

  • Five reasons to be bullish (!) on stocks, according to Brendan Coffey: (1) the S&P has bounced off its 200-day moving average; (2) the market looks to be following its 2003-05 pattern; (3) S&P 500 firms are trading at just 15x trailing-year earnings, cheapest since 1994; (4) oil and gas prices are falling; (5) consumer demand is growing.  [View news story]
    analysts are paid to do their job, they sometimes need to be bullish to get funds in
    having said that, Bernanke obviously hinted, either the economy gets better or another round of massive stimulus

  • Investopedia's five signs we're already in a double-dip recession: (1) home prices keep falling - homeowners now have even less equity in their homes than at the height of the housing crisis; (2) small businesses can't get credit; (3) unemployment has worsened; (4) consumers are losing faith: (5) more people are on food stamps.  [View news story]
    i bet you meant to say here IF stock market is a LAGGING indicator or future prediction of a recession
    of course stock market is an indicator of a recession, during recession, all the companies earnings will be revised downwards and hence sending most stocks down

  • As Euro officials take contrasting views on the downgrade of Ireland, Wilbur Ross claims Moody's is attacking the wrong country, noting the government has already carried out major spending cuts. Ross warns if the agencies "downgrade enough people recklessly, nobody will be able to access the public markets in 2013."  [View news story]
    Wilbur Ross's screaming, "My money My money! down the drain"

  • In economist David Rosenberg's view, QE3 is all but inevitable. With unemployment well above the FOMC's year-end projection band of 8.6-8.9%, and higher still from its end-of-2012 projection of 7.8-8.2%, the Fed has no choice but to provide more stimulus. Rosenberg previously gave a 99% chance of a second recession happening.  [View news story]
    havn't heard the Mr Doom & Gloom Roubini talked about double dip recession of late?
    shouldn't he be the most active among all given such gloomy macro econ these days?

  • Republicans say they will refuse to raise taxes, but Peter Morici thinks they would be smart to reconsider. Barry Ritholtz wants to hit high net worth individuals whose numbers and net worth have swelled during the past two years. The population of HNWIs rose 8.6% in 2010 to 3.4M after rising 16.6% in 2009, according to a CapGemini report, and their wealth jumped 9.1% to $11.6T.  [View news story]
    i say both Democrats and Republicans should STFU (shut the F***** up) and do something already
    i rather see more actions that just words going around every single day and night, you have the same problems being debated, being discussed with no collective agreement and will to do something about it
    how long are we gonna witness this political brinkmanship? i am guessing the political games have long started, they are only interested in winning votes for the next elections, not much so about growing our country's economy

    i would like quote Warren Buffett here
    1) "Congress is playing Russian Roulette."

    2) "I could end the deficit in 5 minutes. You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP all sitting members of congress are ineligible for reelection."

  • Morgan Stanley's David Greenlaw still sees second-half GDP growth at 3.5%, citing an eclectic mix: auto assembly schedules pointing to increased production after recent disruptions, cheap gas prices likely to translate into real consumption growth, incentives for businesses to spend expiring at year-end, and a seasonal quirk that will boost Q4 exports.  [View news story]
    maybe this dude is one of the many "high" networth people that can afford to pay even if the prices at the pump goes to $10/gallon
    no disrespect to MS David here with his fairly optimistic predictions, as a matter of fact, anyone of us could have made all kinds of predictions, it is whether those predictions will be carried out as planned

    look many CEOs of big and small companies already mentioned uncertainty due to our political leaders still bickering over debt ceiling and whether to raise taxes or cut spending etc.. hence business's not spending, look at the anemic job growth in US, what does it tell ya?
    how long do you think political brinkmanship will continue? i suppose as long as there's divided will to do anything until the next election, both Republicans & Dem are still playing games using American's economy growth to win votes next year
    alcoa and microchip tech have come out and said they see global automotive sector weakness, and weak consumer spending in the US, so MS David here is a real deal OPTIMIST!

  • One strong argument we aren't in a new tech bubble: earnings and revenue multiples for the sector at-large remain reasonable. But while the sector as a whole may not sport high multiples, valuations for certain names such as Salesforce.com (CRM), Baidu (BIDU), and LinkedIn (LNKD) are close to those found during the 1999-2000 bubble.  [View news story]
    watch for Jim Cramer to pump up CRM and BIDU
    when cramer pump is on, it's hard to short those stocks
    if Cramer says sell, you should be scared
