Hello everyone, welcome to a new day. Oh wait...it's another Friday!  They just keep on rolling in. 

So, how do we explain yesterday?  Well, the ECB did what I figured they'd do, they announced that the billions are coming for months on end, and while they didn't mention it in the press statement, Draghi himself said that if there was any worry about growth they'd increase the QE again. That was music to the market's ear.

Hello all, and a Happy Wednesday to you all....

Yesterday was a snorefest of epic proportions. On very little volume ( 45 million SPY traded) we ended the day with the DOW off 46 and the S&P off 6.  It was a lot like Monday, we just sat there bouncing up and down in a channel all day, and ultimately ending the show at the low end of that channel. 

5.17.2017 - Ransom's and Crashes! Bookmark

So today the big news is Ransomware, Comey's "memo" to himself and the big 370 point down day in the market. What a hot mess this is!  First we have the rabid media and the over the top Democrats going batcrap over Comey suggesting he made a note to himself that Trump had asked him to lay off of Flynn. Then of course the already "old news" of a test run of malware that swept across 150 countries and 200K computers demanding "bitcoins" for payment. 

 

Those two added up to a pretty hefty plunge in market land, with the DOW off 372 and the S&P cratering for 42. So in tonight's free investing newsletter we talk about the ransomware, the Comey "thing" and of course what the market's look like. I suggest you give tonight's letter some extra attention, because 1) the ransomware attack was just the tip of a much bigger iceberg, and the markets? They're starting to look dangerous.

Ransom, The Test
 
So, the story goes that some hacker saw in a Wikileaks email, that the NSA had created a Malware, and this hacker gleaned it and unleashed it on the world. Called Ransom-ware, the virus gets in your hard drive and encrypts all your data. It is then useless to you. Then the hacker tells you that for a price, he will send you the key to decrypt all that info and you get your computer back.

Hello all.


What a difference a day makes, eh?  Yesterday it was business as usual, and after a long twisty day the DOW ended down 2, the S&P down 1.  It doesn't get much flatter than that.

Hello everyone, welcome to Thursday. May it be a happy one for you. 

5.10.2017 The Greater Fool Bookmark

So, Comey is out. We'll talk about all that for the weekend. Today the newsletter is about the Greater fool theory, versus dividend paying stocks. Do you know the difference? Or better yet, does the difference matter? We gnaw on that topic today, so take a few minutes and see what we're whining about.  Then we move onto the actual market itself. We've sure put in a lot of tight sessions lately. Are they going to break us free and we go on to set even more all time highs? We'll see.

Never a dull day....

There's no question that by now you know that FBI director Comey was fired last night. You have to know that because it's front and center on every news site, every broadcast on ever channel. 

So what's it mean? Is it important? Is the swamp getting drained? Was Comey a "bad guy?"  Who's going to take the job?

I have no doubt that politics has been corrupt from the very earliest of days. None. But I think there’s a big difference between say taking a payoff from someone so that later on you give that person a favor, versus selling out your nation.  I’m not saying that it’s right to take a payoff, but please folks, let’s deal in reality. They happen on virtually every level. Builder A gives Candidate B a 50K dollar donation to his campaign. B wins the election. Builder A gets approval for his condo project. It happens every day in every town USA.

Boo!  I'm sure I didn't scare you on this Halloween morning. However, there are scared people everywhere after this weekends bombshells about Comey, Hillary, Huma,Weiner, etc. Wow what a mess. 

There's so many twists and turns to this story that piecing it all together is difficult, and no I'm not an expert on it all. But from what we can gather, 1) FBI agents were resigning left and right, feeling betrayed that Comey didn't push for indictment the first time around. 2) Agents working on the idea of Chld porn on Weiners lap top found thousands of emails to Huma, and some appeared to have been to and from Hillary's private server. Agents then approached FBI agents that had worked on the Clinton case and said "hey, we've got tens of thousands of emails on this lap top from Weiner and they look like they could have been important to you".  See... Huma swore that she had given all her "stuff" to the fed's the first time. Now we know... that's not true.  So Huma's got some explaining to do for sure
