HAS THE TRAIN LEFT THE STATION?

October 28, 2011 Comments (0)

The Europeans finally decided to come up with a plan and not commit hara-kiri after all! Now it is just a plan and the devil is always in the details but this crisis has been well within their means to tackle from the beginning if they would just stop being total imbeciles. On top of the good news from Europe came a better than expected third quarter GDP report that shows a recession is not in the cards. At 2.5%, GDP growth is still below trend but well away from a recession. The...

The Probability Of A Recession

October 21, 2011 Comments (0)

So are we going to have a recession or not? Every time the market drops a thousand points it seems as though stocks are priced as if there is going to be a severe recession. Listening to the commentators you would think the world was going to end any day. As we have mentioned repeatedly over the past few months, the indicators that we track haven't shown a high probability of recession. We don't discount the fact that we may end up in another recession but up to now the high level of...

From Bear Market Territory To Market Rally

October 13, 2011 Comments (0)

The markets have moved up about 12% from the low on October 4th. That’s a huge move for one week! If you were paying attention to the headlines you probably missed the rally, but that’s been the nature of the market for the last two months. Twelve percent is what people used to expect in a decent year from equities! Trying to trade this market has been very painful to a lot of people.

Why Warren Pays Less in Taxes than his Secretary...

October 6, 2011 Comments (0)

President Obama says that his most important priority is to create jobs. With that priority, it does not make a lot of sense that he relentlessly attacks those who create most of the jobs in America, ie. "the rich". For the past couple of weeks the president - and his new helper, Warren Buffett- have campaigned endlessly against the job creators who he says do not pay their fair share of the tax bill. I agree that everyone should pay their fair share. That is common sense. However, I do not...

Europe Watch Continues

September 29, 2011 Comments (0)

The European situation continues to be the dominant force moving the markets. This week the market continues in its volatile ways with intraday moves of 1% or more now seeming to be common. I don’t think the market has ever seen such large seesaw action in percentage terms in such a short period of time. Markets rallied in the early part of the week on the prospect that the Europeans would begin moving on a much larger solution to contain the crisis. Words are one thing and action another....

Are We Headed For Another Recession?

September 16, 2011 Comments (0)

The economic data is still presenting a mixed bag on whether a recession is coming or is here. For example, industrial production and manufacturing increased in August contrary to the ISM data that slipped negative for the first time since May 2009. Industrial production is up 3.3% on a year over year comparison which indicates moderate economic growth. Overall, the economic leading indicators are still pointing up (anemically so, however) and a recession has never started when they have been...

Mr. President, pull a "Clinton" please.

September 8, 2011 Comments (0)

The President is going on another of his "grand" stages tonight with his jobs speech before Congress. I keep hoping, praying, and wishing that the President will finally pull a "Clinton" and present some real structural solutions to help the economy. Anything less will be very disappointing and now that most of the points seemed to have come out ahead of tonight it seems like we are just going to get more of the same stimulus that we've already got. More style than substance. The economy and...
