  • The Dollar, The Fed And The Market [View article]
    whats the point of another round of QE? It would just force rates even lower. The fed needs to raise rates and they need to do it soon.

    S&P closed right on the 200 day MA. Either Yellen gets to work on Monday or the world as we know it ends.

  • Retirees, Don't Count On Stocks To Deliver From Here [View article]
    Dale I am optimistic that the middle class will continue to disappear and the welfare state will continue to grow. I am optimistic that we will revert back to the pre industrial boom lifestyle of kings and serfs but with iphones and NFL for the peasants. I am optimistic that the fed will have to continue to prop up asset prices to compensate for all this and keep the pensions afloat so the serfs don't storm the castle.

    Dale there is no stock market. The market is a policy tool, and the almighty SPY will be supported at all costs.

    You need to turn that frown upside down

  • Precious Metals Prices Fall: Gold At A Critical Juncture [View article]
    Looks like silver is going into the 16's today. Funny thing I read the zerohedge comments section to get a sense of where the pm mindset is. It's funny that the same guys that were screaming to "Back up the truck" when it dropped under $30 won't touch it here. Lotta grumbling and a few "maybe I'll pick some up at $10".....

    The beauty of death by a thousand cuts is everytime you think you have endured it, there is more to come.

    There will be no washout. A washout might encourage people to jump in. It will be death by a thousand cuts.

    "U.S. same-store sales dropped for the fourth straight month in August, falling 2.8 percent. Analysts projected a 2 percent decrease, the average of projections from Consensus Metrix."

  • Major Stock Market Selloff Looms As The Fed's QE3 Ends [View article]
    "the US economy transforms into a low-employment structural welfare state, and not much else either."

    Well said. The only threat out there is the rest of the world dumping the dollar. That still looks a long ways away.

  • McDonald's: A Matter Of Taste [View article]
    You guys are way off. This ain't 1985. McDonalds is just crap food that tastes like garbage. Amazingly a young generation has finally figured this out. It's over for McD. Probably a great short from here. Too many other good restaurant names out there to own anyway.

    Exactly. It's got electrolytes. It's what plants crave.

  • Major Stock Market Selloff Looms As The Fed's QE3 Ends [View article]
    indicators have been pointing to expansion without the expansion for 6 years now. there will never be any expansion, other than in pe multiples. Growth is dead and it ain't coming back. The fed knows this.

    The fed owns the bond market and zirp rules all. That is why a 20% pullback will never happen. The fed is ending QE and they will lift rates off the zero bound but not enough to damage equity markets. Money will continue to pile in on any dip as so many fund managers have lagged and are desperate for an opportunity to justify their existence.

    I would have taken this article more seriously if they quoted a vanilla ice song instead of MC Hammer. he went bankrupt. Vanilla ice has his own hgtv show.

  • Bank Of America's Asset Base Should Fuel Earnings Growth Going Forward [View article]
    Thanks for the detailed answer. For almost all of those things you mentioned, would you say the banks are less profitable than before 2008 or more profitable?

    I spent about 5 years working for the banks in the early 2000's. I feel like all the stuff that they were making a killing on back then (mortgages, selling insurance/annuities etc etc) they are doing a fraction of business with now. Sure they are prob still doing well with CC's and have a nice niche with auto loans until they blow up.

    To me it seems like the profits keep coming back to them being able to borrow for free and either buy long dated treasuries, or buy stocks/bonds etc. Alongside lending out for auto loans etc...
