  • Forget The Shopping List: Buy What's On Sale (Part 1)  [View article]
    In light of the the Fed's goal, higher rates. Would it not be true, the future DG's appeal be diluted by bank CD's(old fashion laddering) or interest products. I know it is probably three years out, but at high multiples you have to consider drawdown. Real Estate is high, bonds have peaked. IMO, the shopping list might have some commodity basis. As reference, look at the DAG ETF, around 73% off be its overpriced peak. If you believe that every gov't is demanding inflation, as I see it, then a rally should be in the offing.

  • When This Ends, Everybody Gets Hurt  [View article]
    Growth in Health, Education, Tech, Service, make up a lot of these loans. These don't tax the hard assets of the world. We need to define type of growth for the future. I believe there are gross abuses on some systems that need immediate attention. Water is my biggest concern. But the future of growth isn't just physical assets.

  • Apple Has Little Left To Lose  [View article]
    I regret missing on Apple this last rise. From a fast stochastic view, we should be about the bottom for quick pop soon and slow stochastic view, we have a lot of compression. The company is still increasing profits, maybe at a slower pace for now.

    It might be the mother of all dips!

  • Oil companies such as Occidental Petroleum (OXY), Venoco (VQ) and Hess (HES) are looking to exploit California's Monterey Shale, whose untapped deposits are estimated at 15.4B barrels, or over four times the reserves in the Bakken Shale. However, the industry is facing stiff opposition from the state's environmental lobby, which is concerned about the substances used in fracking and the potential for setting off earthquakes.  [View news story]
    If that crap was true, Texas would have fallen into the Gulf 20 years ago. We invented fracking around San Antonio, a zone called the Austin Chaulk. NO MAJOR EARTHQUAKE HERE!

  • The Treasury will not produce a $1T platinum coin as a way of bypassing the problem of the debt ceiling, quashing an idea that has gained currency with Democrats and various high-profile economists and commentators. Neither the Treasury nor the Fed "believe that the law can or should be used to facilitate the production of platinum coins for the purpose of avoiding an increase in the debt limit," the Treasury said yesterday.  [View news story]
    The real problem was changing all the the vending machines would cost more than the coins were worth.

  • 'Stupid Stimulus' Courts Disaster  [View article]
    We need to unleash the power of our small businesses in the form of a Reagan type tax cut. The SBA needs to aggressively back loans. Pass the Energy Plan finally. also, cut (not just a freeze and call it a cut govt pay, which studies have shown a 20 plus pay difference). Promote a world class techno economy (maybe with subsidies, gulp!). Force a results form of Welfare. Make the tax code match 75% of the people pay some taxes. If we want to clean up this mess, we have to get dirty!

  • Most recent earthquakes in North Texas happened close to injection wells used to dispose of wastewater from oil and gas drilling in the region, and they're happening more frequently, according to new research. "You can't prove that any one earthquake was caused by an injection well," the top researcher says, "but it's obvious that wells are enhancing the probability that earthquakes will occur."  [View news story]
    Just to add, East, North, and West Texas has been drilling for over a hundred years. The billions of barrels removed and replaced by sand, water, and alike fluids by ten of thousands of wells have never cause any significant quake. If anything, people would think it would cause sink holes.

  • Long-term Treasury yields climb to their highest level in a month, the 10-year up 5 bps to 1.62%, the long bond up 6 bps to 2.72%. A bit has been made about the divergence between stocks and Treasury yields - perhaps it will be resolved through falling Treasury prices, rather than lower stock values.  [View news story]
    Most of those purchases are held to maturity. If its traders they hedge or dump quickly.
