  • Walter Energy -11% premarket on gloomy BofA coal assessment [View news story]
    The gov't police itself? Surely not this Administration where every investigation is deemed phony. BO said he would crush the conservative coal industry with this fist in 2008. Just making good on his promise the last two years. China has been making bids on many coal companies recently so I would start there. ACI has been liquidating assets and mines for the past 9 months like crazy. Burning through $100M a month last 4-5 months. They have a cap of $925M. You do the math. They are going to need a lot of help (not by way of this gov't) to stay afloat if they want to make it to the next election. Peabody can absorb this onslaught for now but they need to be aggressive now and position themselves as the only place to go for coal energy here in the States.

  • The weak NFP print increases the likelihood the Fed will launch fresh stimulus at its policy meeting next week, writes Jon Hilsenrath. Bernanke made clear (again) his concerns over the labor market in his Jackson Hole speech, leaving the suggestion he's itching to take action. Today's report, combined with ISM in contraction territory, may give him the opening. [View news story]
    That would normally work but since BO purposefully has not passed a budget in 3 years and 9 months, so that he may bankrupt America to be on par with his Middle East brothers, no one can see the end or the downfall. It's like running a train off the Grand Canyon and magical tracks appear to get to the other side. The tracks are only there because he says they are there. It's the Socialist Hopium Train!

    There's nothing else that weasel can do. He has no more bullets left except to squeeze every last ounce of monetary value out of the middle class. Timmy and Bernanke need to be held accountable for their roles in BO's master plan.

  • Zillow's new negative equity report shows nearly 16M U.S. homeowners, or 31.4% of all homeowners with a mortgage, were underwater in 2012 - a bit better than 2011's 32.4% but higher than estimates from CoreLogic and others. “It’s a $1.2T problem," Zillow's Stan Humphries says. “We think 2012 is going to be a great year for home sales, but a mixed picture for prices."  [View news story]
    Wait..the $2T house bailout didn't work? I can't believe that.

  • JPMorgan's (JPM) losses from its disastrous trades could reach $5B or more, the WSJ reports, as the bank struggles to unwind its positions. Major problems include increasing worries about Greece and the the EU economy. Meanwhile, the CFTC becomes the latest government agency to open a probe into the debacle, the NYT reports.  [View news story]
    It's the rule of three in economics. Anytime a company/bank reports a net loss, multiply it by three and you'll get the true company loss for that year, quarter, or scandal. It's been amazingly accurate the last 4 years, So it's $6B no question.

  • It seems like you're a nobody in government circles at the moment if you're not investigating JPMorgan's (JPM) $2B trading loss, with Reuters reporting that the FBI is now getting in on the act. That adds to inquiries by the DOJ, the Fed, the SEC, and the U.K.'s FSA, not to mention hearings in the Senate. No matter, shares are +3.7%.  [View news story]
    But terrorists residing permanently up their at 1600 Penn. Ave in his Administration and the legality of his citizenship is off limits. Ok, I get it. Maybe iDimon enacted a "racial" trade. That must be it. I haven't seen this much cooperation between these agencies since the Recession cover-up.

  • The Fed approves the first-ever Chinese purchase of a U.S. bank, giving the green light to ICBC's (IDCBF.PK) purchase of 80% of Bank of East Asia. The Fed also approves applications by the Bank of China (BACHY.PK) to establish a branch in Chicago and Ag Bank of China to open a branch in NYC.  [View news story]
    They have landed and the red carpet was rolled out right up to Capitol Hill. We could changing currencies, again. As of Feb, China is now #2, only behind the SS Trust Fund for owning US Debt. China owns 13.2% of all U.S. debt. 10 months ago it was 8%.

  • Netflix (NFLX -7.6%) closed at levels last seen in early January after Viacom (VIA, VIAB) stated on its FQ2 earnings call Epix's movies will be available on Netflix "under any circumstance," but other streaming partners might also be added. Last week, it was reported Apple (AAPL) is talking to Epix, which Viacom co-owns with LGF and MGM, about a streaming deal. Netflix's exclusivity ends in September.  [View news story]
    Biobat,
    Do a little research ....he did. In addition, at the end of the year he did not own a single share of stock. That is pretty telling to me and any investor. His options were a strike price of 1.50 so he cashed those out at the height of Netflix knowing he bungled a dozen issues. As long as stock was above $1.50 he made off like a bandit. Then, he gets a 68% pay raise in 2011 while Netflix loses 77%. Base pay stayed the same but his options allowance went up $3M. Imagine if Netflix didnot collaspe. He'd make $100M easy.

    Translation: Netflix is F*cked. They need to be acquired to stay alive. Reed alienated both content providers and customers. BUS 101 is don't do either. There's a reason he cashed out all his options last summer for $65M and has a handful of regular class a shares left.

  • The SEC has opened an informal inquiry into Chesapeake's (CHK -1.6%) program that granted Aubrey McClendon a share in each of the natural gas producer's wells, Reuters reports. Major shareholder David Dreman questions whether CHK's new statements that its directors had never reviewed or approved McClendon's actions were prompted by the SEC probe.  [View news story]

    So New York just randomly picked S for a $300M lie?
