  • The stock market has priced in the worst news, resulting in attractive valuations that should see a rally of at least 16% by year's end, Abby Joseph Cohen says. Indeed, with companies optimistic about Q2 numbers, some say stocks have room to rise. RBS' Andrew Roberts, expecting a "collapse far beyond what even some equity bears anticipate," would beg to differ.  [View news story]
    If that were me in her job, I'd have been canned long ago. She's obviously got someone over a barrel.

    How is she employed still? Meteorologists have a better track record than she does.

  • Geithner and Summers struggle to establish traction for Obama's “spend now, save later” message, so Simon Johnson says there is a clear opportunity to establish credibility on this issue: Bring Paul Krugman into government to replace departing budget director Peter Orszag. No one would be a better spokesman against overly rapid fiscal contraction: case in point.  [View news story]
    If I remember correctly, the correlation between government spending and economic growth is now actually negative.

    As if things aren't bad enough, now we need to bring in Krugman who has about zero experience outside of the utopian unicorn land called a college campus to drive the final nail into our coffin. Ingenious idea. This is what happens when you have a government dominated by a bunch of theoretically oriented academics. Can we finally get someone with successful real world experience up there to make decisions?

  • 47% of portfolio managers now believe U.S. stock markets are undervalued, up sharply from 28% in Russell Investment's previous Quarterly Investment Manager Outlook. At 63% bullish, U.S. large-cap growth displaced emerging-market equities as the asset class managers like most.  [View news story]
    They want you to think they are bullish so they can unload their garbage onto your books. Anyone that can see past their own nose knows that the next 18mths are going to be pretty tough.

  • House Judiciary Committee signs off on legislation that would repeal the Limitation of Liability Act of 1851 that would limit BP (BP) and Transocean's (RIG) liability in the Gulf oil spill. The bill, which applies to both pending and future cases, passed 16-11, sending the measure to the full House for consideration.  [View news story]
    BP will pay through the court system the way it should be. I'm sick of how the last few administrations treat the Constitution as a suggestion rather than THE LAW.

    The Constitution has never stopped a populist driven politician. Gerrymandering is illegal, yet it happens in every single state.

  • Sen. Blanche Lincoln pushes for a change in financial reform legislation that would benefit a single bank in her home state of Arkansas, one mainly owned by the Walton family. Under Lincoln's proposed change, the bank would be excused from a provision that could require banks to raise more capital.  [View news story]
    You simply cannot do this because there are many things voters aren't privy to due to national security, it defeats the purpose of voting for a representative, and it's more about the rule of man rather than the rule of law. That's why the US is a constitutional republic and not an out and out democracy as is often misstated by our ignorant officials.

    I agree - we have to stop this kind of stuff if we are ever to get back on the right track.

  • U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman said in his ruling that the Interior Department failed to provide adequate reasoning for the moratorium on deepwater drilling in the Gulf. He said it seemed to assume that because one rig failed, all companies and rigs posed an imminent danger. But an immediate spike in share prices of offshore drillers quickly subsides.  [View news story]
    Of course there is, but you are talking about shutting down all offshore drilling because of one accident. How many have we had in the last 20 years? None that I can recall off hand. That's panic, not prudence.

    If we lived life like that imagine what we couldn't do anymore. You can't live life in fear of the "what if".

    We don't need more regulation - we need appropriate oversight. All of the "ills" that occur don't occur because there was some missing rule. They happened bec there was no enforcement through oversight.

  • Buying and holding a market-based exchange-traded fund is an "intelligent" strategy, but speculating through ETFs is "an insane way to invest," John Bogle suggests. SPDRs have a turnover of 10,000% annually, compared with a “normal” turnover of 5% for the average investor, according to Bogle.  [View news story]
    Bogle is a dinosaur.
