Until It Can’t?

Over the years, we’ve talked many times about the fact that Central banks are now enormous buyers of actual stocks. We’ve mentioned how the Bank of Japan owns almost ¾ of all their market ETF’s. How the Swiss national bank has bought literally billions of dollars worth of AAPl,  and MSFT and XOM.  We’ve talked about how companies have borrowed money at virtually zero interest rates and used the money to buy up their own shares of stock.

Lying Fed Heads
 
One of the problems you face when you write a newsletter that goes out to thousands of folks, is that often the things you say...are diametrically opposed to what people have taken as fact for years. Then they have to try and figure out if I’m simply nuts, or maybe they realize that they’ve been shoveled a bucket of horse hockey all those years. It causes stress I’m sure.
 
For instance, we all know that Eve ate an apple in the Garden of Eden right? Well not so fast. She ate from the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Not once is it mentioned in the Bible that it was an apple. It probably wasn’t. Yet it’s taken as a generalized fact that she ate an apple.

What color is that Dress?

I’ve just come through a particularly trying week, one in which my mother-in-law passed away, and along with it the grief and sorrows of the family. As you might imagine I’ve been preoccupied with that event, and not able to devote the time I generally spend in watching the madness of our world unravel.  But sometimes the enormity of what takes place simply muscles its way into your life no matter the distraction.

This week was surely one of those times. In the course of just 10 days, the things that we’ve seen transpire would have taken one’s breath away in virtually any other time in history. But in 2015? Nah, not so much.  See, we had a dress color to debate. The internet and the news media was obsessed with trying to figure out if the dress in question was one of white and gold, or blue’s and black. It was massively important stuff, so much so that Hollywood figures, Country music stars, journalists, doctors of psychology, and more weighed in with their thoughts.  It was by far the most important discussion of the last several days.

11.20.2014 Global PMI's Crash Bookmark

Last night the Purchasing managers across the globe put out their recent statistics. Well the PMI (index) missed estimates in China, Japan and most of Europe. I don't think that is a surprise to anyone that actually listens to what is really happening in economies around the world.
