While still attending Wharton at the U of Pennsylvania, he was one of the founders of Imperial Battery Corporation in Lynchburg,Va. He built and owned the Beaux Jardine Apartment complex in Springfield, Missouri in 1965. Then, while engineering a plant for Chromalloy in Athens, Georgia, he met the individuals who became central in his founding Tuskeegee Mills in Tuskeegee, Alabama in 1966, the first business entity that hired female black women for gainful employment in factory wage-earning jobs. They were so immediately successful that Dr Martin Luther King reproduced them in other locations. After selling his family business he became an employee of Teledyne and continued working for them for many years including last year helping them win a crucial patent case. In working for Dr Henry Singleton he learned much about venture capital and how to make best use of limited capital for maximum growth. As a tournament bridge player in 1969, he won a national championship event teaming up with Michael Lawrence and Bobby Goldman. He then ventured into Wall Street as a broker, trader and principle of his own companies. In 1970, he joined Cogan, Berlind, Weill and Levitt, which bought CBWL-Hayden Stone, which became Shearson-Hayden Stone, eventually merging with Smith Barney and then Citigroup with Mr. Weill at the top as Chairman. Arthur Levitt became Chairman of the SEC. However, along the way, Mike was First Vice President and one of the leading employees for CBWL-Hayden Stone from 1970 through 1973, when the Dow was laboring at just 400. Mike was a member of several futures exchanges; the Chicago Board of Trade the NY Mercantile Exchange, Minneapolis Grain exchange and the N.Y. Futures Exchange. In the seventies he personally handled one of Nelson Bunker Hunt’s Silver accounts until September 28, 1979 when he opted out and liquidated the portion he managed of the account.

Market Strategies Fundamentals

Stocks and Bonds move Higher Together

How rare is that? Nasdaq led all indexes gaining 94 points or 2.15%.The DJ Transportation average which had been in the doldrums had a great week rebounding 171.65 points or 2.12%. The Dow gained 108.98 points or 0.66%. The S&P 500 rose 23 points or 1.2% to 1955.Trading was extremely light as indecision abounds.

Volume fell to the lowest level since the day before The July 4th holiday.

Earnings season is just about over and was quite impressive. According to Barrons, 59% of companies in the S&P 500 beat bottom line, earnings estimates and 60.7% had exceeded revenue estimates, although traders tended to sell " the good news" causing the average stock to fall 0.7% the session after reporting.

On the negative side, Retail Sales continues to be weak rising just 0.1% in July, well below expectations of 0.4% growth. Shares of quality Retail leaders like Macys ( M: $ 57.45 ) off $ 2.76 or 4.6% on the week. Nordstrom ( JWN: $ 65.11 ) was off $ 4.83 for the week or-6.9%. Both have fallen of a cliff and look like a disaster on the charts. Wal-Mart cut earnings guidance after falling for the seventh consecutive quarter.. Can the uptrend in stocks continue without their participation?

Both Europe and Japan have been very weak. The German and Italian economies contracted 0.2% in the second quarter and that was before any Russian embargoes. China's Central Bank said new lending plunged in July. Japan's economy, somewhat independent of geo-politics, fell 3.2% year-to-year in the second quarter. This was the worst drop in 18 quarters according to Barclay's Research in Tokyo. The Dow Jones Retail Index remains at a very high level, 649.06. The high of 665.85 was reached March 4th of the current year, well above the low of 223.43, February 12th 2009.

Treasuries made new weekly highs. The CBOE 30 Yr Treasury Yield Index fell to 31.35, down from a high of 67.53 February 4th 2000. The TLT equivalent is 117.71 currently, vs the high August 13, 2012 and the lowest point August 12, 2004. The TLT just began trading November 2002. The lowest yield was on August 13th 2012, when the long bond reached a low yield point of 27.39. The 10-yr equivalent is a current 23.45, a low point of 13.94, August 13, 2012 vs the high yield point 68.23, February 4th, 2000. Those are such violent extremes that the Fed has certainly reduced Treasury volatility and uncertainty, which should be long-term beneficial to economic growth.

The Barron's 400 Mid-Cap Index closed right at its 13-week moving average leaving opportunity for both bulls and bears. The same goes for the CBOE 5 Year treasury Index which closed right on its 50-day moving average 15.41.

Market Strategies Economic Data

Industrial Production increased 0.4% in July following the same increase in June. The gains might have been much stronger if ot for mild temperatures in July reducing air conditioning demand , which caused utility production to fall by 3.4%. Manufacturing production increased 1.0% in July, up from a 0.3% increase in June.

That was the strongest increase since February.

These numbers confirmed the accuracy of the growth in the ISM reports issued on the first day of the month. The Institute of Supply Managers report showed an increase to 57.1 in July, up from 55.3 in June. These numbers confirm the increased profitability from labor as a result of productivity gains. The profitability of manufacturing is improving in America. ( See Chart Below ) The profitability of labor to manufacturing concerns has rarely been better.

Back to Back 0.4% months is a tough act to follow as it is likely that some production was borrowed from August especially in motor vehicle production and parts, which increased 10.1% in July. Motor vehicle assemblies jumped to 13.19 mln from 11.65 mln in June. Autos were up to 4.79 mln units and trucks 8.40 ( all numbers on an annualized basis ). This was the largest number of assemblies since July 2002. Usually, the summer months are slow due to re-tooling of the auto assembly plants, but clearly not this year.

Capacity Utilization for July rose to 79.2%, from 79.1% in June. the best level of the year. Manufacturing which has been lagging over the years rose to 77.8% of capacity, also the best level in years. 83% has been the level required to risk inflation.

Labor generates more output per hour. As a proportion of employer spending on wages, salaries and benefits is nearly the lowest it's been since the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking this measure in 1947. Conversely, it is more profitable to be a manufacturer as can be seen from increased earnings of the large and mid-cap companies.
