  • Gold catches bid after Fed holds off on rate hike [View news story]
    The Fed will NEVER raise rates voluntarily. When the Sheeple wake up to this fact gold will continue the next leg of its bull run. QE4 and 'helicopter money' are on the way. You can put your house on it.

  • Citigroup: Are Investors Just Too Lazy To Pick Up This 75-Cent Dollar? [View article]
    Two things:

    Investors are missing nothing by not putting money to work in Citi. If you can't anaylse the stock properly you're better off not investing in it. The risk is too great.

    A "fortress" balance sheet is a double edged sword (assuming any of that is true). A conservative balance sheet spells conservative earnings. Full stop. In addition, it doesn't matter how conservative the balance sheet, if there is global financial sector stress, Citi is going to get taken down, big time.

  • Apple unveils iPhone 6S/6S+ with 3D Touch sensors, A9 CPU, improved cameras [View news story]
    Oh dear. Time for Timmy to keep his mouth shut lest the stock price drop even more.

    There is currently an inverse correlation between the price and the number of new products the company is announcing.

  • Bulls And Bears Are Both Wrong About Stocks [View article]
    I'm with Hussman on this ...

    It ends badly, either this year or the next.


    Seriously, though. Who is going to 'time' this perfectly?

    Basically, no one.

    And for those who think the Fed can prop this up at will: omg.

  • Apple: Best Tasting Bear Ever? [View article]
    A Wall St "shakedown"? What a joke.

    Did you miss the other thousands of stocks which were also recipients of the "shakedown"?

    Can someone please attempt some serious analysis.

    Perhaps .... just perhaps, we're at the start of a major bear market. Just sayin.

  • Citigroup: A Buy Opportunity In The Financial Sector [View article]
    The market is telling you something ...

    There is an awful lot of people on SA who waste endless hours bleating that the 'market is wrong'. If a stock is getting beaten up in this QE-inflated market there is potentially something amiss.

  • Citigroup: A Buy Opportunity In The Financial Sector [View article]
    Some of the best minds in finance have put in long hours trying to delve into the balance sheets of Citi, JPM and BAML and have had to concede defeat.

    Then along comes J. Woods who declares it's all as transparent as spring water. LOL

  • Less Pain, More Gain [View article]
    You are absolutely right - the average man in the street is clueless before a major drawdown, however, there are numerous tools available that will warn you well in advance that problems are building.

    When I was working on Wall St back in 2005 all we could talk about (at least in bond trading - I can't speak for the rest of the bank) was the coming financial crisis - it built up in waves, warning signs everywhere, in tandem with ever tightening credit spreads. It was simply a matter of when, not if.

    There are huge problems facing us once again which will be met, no doubt, by money printing on a massive scale -- so if you've predicted Dow 36,000 by 2020 you're probably not far wrong. Mind you, it will be the equivalent of Dow 6,000 (in today's money).

    That may be true but it doesn't help you if you remain the market before a 50% fall.

    Sure, if you fell asleep in June 2007 and woke up in December 2014 you'd probably be quite happy with how your portfolio looked but it won't always be the case that the market bounces back after a catastrophic collapse (at least, not in 'real' terms).

  • Manchester United has 659M reasons to hire an IT specialist [View news story]
    The 659m 'followers' claim is a complete fraud. If you think about it, the number itself is completely implausible given that it represents a substantial proportion of the entire global population, including (if it's not obvious) all women and children/babies etc.

    The way the club did their survey was to ask people if they 'recognised' the name/brand. If the answer was 'Yes' then they were deemed a 'follower'. Equally, the sample representing the entire population could have been skewed by simply conducting the survey among a small sample in a football-mad nation and then extrapolating for the entire globe (which is precisely what happened).

    I am staggered they haven't been 'called out' for this. If we actually had any 'real' journalists left in the mainstream media, this is what would have occurred by now.

  • Citigroup: A Buy Opportunity In The Financial Sector [View article]
    The C share price has barely changed since the GFC but I guess you could always live in hope that things improve 'one day'. The truth is that this behemoth's 'well' was poisoned back then and it is no clearer today to what extent their balance sheet has been cleaned up. In addition, a lot of the most profitable activities of yesteryear (bond trading, securitisation etc) have become substantially less so as the regulatory pinch starts to hurt as well as the more stringent Basel III comes into play.

    After nearly 7 miserable years of stock performance (the stock is still down 90% from its pre GFC peak), surely there are better prospects out there.

  • Stocks back in retreat mode [View news story]
    Ya don't say. Stocks butting up against a major resistance level, pull back.

    Where to now?

    Only a prize chump would fail to see this Ponzi bubble for what it is.
