Jobs For Who?

On Friday we got the non farm payroll report. Estimates were for a gain of 183,000 jobs. But when the number hit we didn’t print 183K jobs, we printed 271,000 blowing away even the most bullish estimates. Inside the report it was all rainbows and unicorns. We saw the unemployment rate fall to 5%, and we see wages rose an astounding 2.5%.  A better report you simply couldn’t make up!!  In fact that’s true, because they made this one up, and it was the best they could do.

As if yesterday wasn't "in your face" enough, as we gained 300+ points; after the bell the big 'old techs" MSFT, AMZN and GOOG all beat the estimates. That pushed the averages even higher after hours. But we're not talking just " little higher", I saw AMZN up 60+ dollars per share shortly after their release.

So, the Fed's so called recovery is SOOOOO strong that 7 years into it, they can't take the chances of hiking interest rates a silly quarter of ONE point. I truly hope that by now each and every one of you understands just how criminal that is. She's been raping the savers of this nation, while filling the coffers of the 1%, and she doesn't want that gravy train to end.

She should be in jail. In fact the whole lot of them should be in jail. For weeks they paraded the FOMC members around to hint at the idea that "this time" they would probably hike rates and what happens? ALL BUT ONE of them voted to not hike rates. How disgusting. Because they don't ever want to be seen as "wrong" about things, they keep rates at zero because as our economy crashes into a deep depression they don't want anyone saying.. you guys did it. 

Well... they did. They've perverted the entire economic foundations and when this crashes and it will...they should all be sent straight to prison.

Fed day.

Just the name alone causes me to almost vomit. Years ago you based all your investing capital based on sound fundamentals such as growth, price to sales, book value, etc. But today? Nah that's old man stuff. Today we sit on the edge of our seats salivating over what a band of criminal, non elected elites are going to do with their unnatural interest rates and economic policies.

What's wrong with this picture?


Today is jobs day, and heading into the delayed release the CNBC crew had the normal criminals on to discuss it all. Well, Zandi the bull of all bulls figured it could come in under 200K because of weather and oil jobs fading. Goolsby said 210. Rick Santelli said under 180

What did the Government give us?

295K and unemployment down to 5.5%

Do you believe any of that? Me neither.

Technology Take Over…


Sometimes it is hard for me to keep my head buried in the place it is supposed to be, that being this thing we call economics and the financial structure. Why? Because each moment that passes is a new milestone for us. In other words, today we know more than we did yesterday. Tomorrow we will know more than we did today. Each day that goes on brings us new intelligence, new questions, new experiences. Sometimes the changes that are brought by these new events leads us to tremendous investing opportunities.  Who wouldn't have wanted to be on the ground floor when Polaroid camera debuted its new technology? Who wouldn't have wanted to be an "Angel" investor in Johnson and Johnson back in 1885 when they were creating the first "ready to use" bandages? Who wouldn't have wanted to be the first investors in this new upstart called "MicroSoft" so many years ago?

What Choice?

I want to take a quick break from making any more 2015 predictions, so that we can talk about some “push back” I’ve been getting from a few folks. That’s GREAT because I love a good heated discussion, so let’s jump right in.  Right now my view for 2015 is that we get one small rate hike of just one quarter of one point and NO new QE.

Unless you’re one of the 1%, you know things aren’t so hot. The economy is indeed surviving, but it’s artificial. The term “zombie” comes to mind, as it is being kept artificially alive. They’ve kept it afloat by a multitude of tricks and gimmicks, and most people forget just how persuasive the manipulations have become.

Good morning everyone, welcome to Friday and the jobs report.

Yesterday was a case study in absurd. Ignoring every instance of the fundamentals of investing, the market gained over 300 points in one session, simply because Fed head Evans suggested to reporters that hiking rates would be "catastrophic". That got the market all excited that they weren't going to have to worry about rising rates in 2015.

Rate Hikes

We’re beginning to discuss some of the major themes that will shape the global economy for 2015 and as I stated on Sunday, this is going to take a lot of discussion and brutally frank dialog. The gloves have to come off for this discussion, and you have to be open enough to at least consider some of the issues we’re going to be talking about.

Anyone with a functioning brain should be able to tell you that the Fed’s cannot raise interest rates. In fact most people can lay out very good explanations as to why they will keep them at zero for ever, and restart the QE program. Hey, I get that. It does indeed make the most sense ON THE SURFACE.

2015

Over the past week, I’ve seen many folks make their 2015 predictions, and like usual they run the whole gambit of possibilities. In general, trying to predict events and outcomes for an entire year is futile at best, and frankly, stupid at worst. Even the best of the best are rarely more than 50% accurate. Yet we do it, because we get to look smart if indeed we get a few things right.

All that said, 2015 has the ability to be a monumental year. We could see events unfold that literally change the shape of the entire worlds Geo-politics. Notice I said “could see” and that’s because we’re going to be talking about very big-picture topics; the kind that don’t always evolve as you think they will, or even when you think they will.  The problem before me is this…there are about a dozen topics we need to discuss, and all of them tie into each other. You simply cannot wrap up the worlds problems and solve them in one newsletter however. So obviously this is going to take a few issues to get through.
