U.S. stocks build gains on housing data

February 26, 201 No coverage of Senator Elizabeth Warren taking on Bernanke today? She asked him why the shareholders of AIG were wiped out while the bank shareholders were not. I suppose that`s not newsworthy.


Jay Brenner
February 26, 201 " Like most soft-spined Americans, you probably have painful memories of the financial crisis and consequent recession. Perhaps you even think of those things as "bad." Fortunately, Jamie Dimon is not like the rest of you losers. "This bank is anti-fragile, we actually benefit from downturns," Dimon bragged to his bank`s investors at a conference on Tuesday. And it is true! The bank definitely benefited from the last downturn. It got to buy Bear Stearns in a government-backed fire sale, getting itself a brokerage business on the cheap in exchange for shouldering only a few tiresome legal burdens. It also got billions of dollars in government handouts, from $25 billion in TARP funds to billions in savings from low-interest-rate borrowing programs to a permanent subsidy arising from the idea that the government will bail out the bank if it ever gets in trouble." (Huff)


Jay Brenner
February 26, 201 Do you `Einsteins` really think the children of tomorrow will care more about FED policy than they will about the destroyed environment we left them? They will certainly see us as the shortsighted self-serving people we`ve become. The president of Ecuador instituted policies that reduced poverty rate from sixty percent to twenty as well as successfully injecting stimulus into the bottom creating a robust economy. Here in America, we`re too busy doing the bidding of billionaires who wish to crush the people for greed, to bother worrying about anything else. That`s why I hate Republicans.


Robert Smith
February 26, 201 @Jay Brenner 15 trillion spent on poverty since the great society and poverty in the US is much the same. So much waste, pork, that`s why I hate liberals. 6 trillion wasted in 4 years with 6 trillion on tap for the next 4 years, that`s why I hate Democrats. We will hate each other so much maybe we can divide the nation into the haves and the have nots. Have nots can all move to california.

February 26, 201 @Jay Brenner Obtuse? My sarcasm runneth over. Some people just don`t get it, government is the problem not the solution.


Jay Brenner
February 26, 201 @Robert Smith @Jay Brenner ... That`s right Robert, a government for and by the people is a problem. Couldn`t the founding fathers figure that out? Guess they didn`t have the Heritage Foundation to set them straight.


Robert Smith
February 26, 201 @Jay Brenner The professional politician concept never occurred to them at the time. They had real jobs waiting for them at home.


Andrez Smith
February 26, 201 "Economic reports showed the value of U.S. homes rising in the final month of last year. " The value stayed the same, but the price went up, because the value of the dollar fell.


Jay Brenner
February 26, 201 @Andrez Smith ... It is all over the local news down here in Tampa about private money investors buying up all the real estate with their own realtors.

February 26, 201 @Jeff Horne For some unknown reason many think the economy is ready for take off. To many nasty things out there for the economy to recover. As we spend more, recovery gets farther away.

February 26, 201 @Jeff Horne C`mon Jeff! You`ve got to give folks a way out. QE will end. It has to (probably when Helicopter Ben fails to get reappointed next year). Then what? Everyone starts living like Mad Max?

February 26, 201 Can US stocks only rally? I think that if Lehman collapsed today it would spark a stock rally. Risk-off!!! England and Finland are leaving the euro zone, Greece is more and more bancrupt, can not meet its obligations, France is slowly joining Italy and Spain and can not meet its obligations, Italy has no government...stocks are at all time high while revenues are disgusting, the us economy is slight recession and QE has no effect on employment, sequester is coming and you know what? It`s the only way nnot to continue to increase the US debt in that vulgar way... US debt (state, corporate and household) is as big as 72% of the Worlds yearly GDP!!

February 26, 201 @Daniel Vagerstam Yes, the stock market can keep rallying... Between now and year end 2013, the stock market will keep going up, not in a straight line, but year end, 2013, DOW will be 15,000... Best of Luck!

February 26, 201 ok I understand that if the dollar is devaluated then the inflation will push up stock prices since they are fractions of a company. And p/e ratios are maintained in a correct range thanks to cooked earnings numbers (i run a small company, it`s easy to make earnings "more faithful to the economic reality") but sales revenues can`t be altered. But still.. i`ll follow the trend but it`s macro economically horrible

February 26, 201.. modestly profitable (italy tanked really nicely) since everything jumped yesterday to take out the bears.. I`m sure they won`t let the sequester hit but they will somehow delay it 2-3 months like the debt ceiling. So the rally will continue?

February 26, 201 @Daniel Vagerstam The rally continues until it doesn`t. Wrong word from Ben, tank. Wrong word from the Washingtonians and the market tanks. Until then party on.

February 26, 201 It rallied by not back to the typical 90 level that happens in good economies. So characterize it as being slightly less depressed.

February 26, 201 Yep, I wonder if the old fraud hucksters will be so bold today as to eliminate all of yesterday``s losses in one fell swoop.

2layne roschenAdm Price
Michael Gelo
February 26, 201 Imagine that, another triple digit fraud pump on miraculous upbeat news. Don`t worry, all is well. Uncle Ben says so. That`s why he has to continue to print and pump. Because all is so well. Don;t worry, the 2-day all losses will be eliminated rule is still in effect. By tomorrow`s close all will be rosy again and by the end of Friday`s fraud pump we`ll probably be over 14k again.

3Adm PriceScobby Dubylayne roschen

February 26, 201 It simply became an oversold market, no big deal. Good traders knew it would rally today.. It had nothing to do with "pumps" just simply short covering and some buying.


Michael Gelo
February 26, 201 @chuck karabin So one day is oversold but 3 months of fraud pumps isn;t overbought? Come on Chuck! I respect your insight but it never ceases to amaze me how rapidly losses disappear. Extend and pretend.


chuck karabin
February 26, 201 Did you read the WSJ article today about massive underfunded pension plans that desperately need to seek returns higher than the 3% they can get in bonds? There are millions of people and then massive pension fund assets that are looking to get out of their overly conservative holdings and into something that might go up in price. These aren`t fraud pumps, they are just investors that got overly conservative and stayed that way for far too long. That`s why losses rapidly disappear. It`s called "buying"
