The Most Equitable Measure Of Stock Market Valuation Is Market Cap/GDP

gold-eagle.com / Vronsky / September 13, 2014

Today’s stock valuation is more grossly exaggerated and unrealistically inflated than in the 1920s. Historic testament suggests today’s pie-in-the-sky lofty stock prices are irrational and driven by the artificial force of the Fed’s QE…and fueled by illogical investor complacency.

The world’s richest man, multi-billionaire Warren Buffett, [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 09/12/2014 17:17

While the world was poring through the details of the latest round of preannounced western sanctions against Russia – a round which Russia commented would have virtually no actual impact – and just as excitedly awaiting the Kremlin’s retaliation which Putin warned is coming [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 09/12/2014 12:43

Damn you debt-reducing austerity-that-is-blamed-for-everything-that-is-wrong-with-Europe’s-triple-dip-recessionary-economy-when-it-is-the-corrupt-socialist-incompetent-politicians’-fault. Damn you to hell! Oh wait a minute:

Oil Price Plunge? It’s The Global Economy, Stupid!

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 09/12/2014 11:15

The decline in the price of oil – in the face of surging geopolitical pandemonium – has been lauded as indicative of both US’ awesomeness in energy independence and a tax cut for Americans… but, as the following chart suggests, there may be another – [...]

Goldman Declares The “End Of The Iron Age”

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 09/10/2014 22:09

Back in the summer of 2008, when crude seemed poised to take out $150, Goldman decided to declare the start of a commodity supercycle and boosted its oil price forecast to $200. Shortly thereafter crude cratered, plunging to the low double digits, and causing [...]

Inside Today’s Inventory Report—-Signs Of Fading GDP Growth

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by Jeffrey P. Snider / September 10, 2014

The wholesale trade figures still confound both the “rebound” narrative and the drastic revisions of GDP made in July. The broader context of wholesale trade remains as it has been since early 2013, as although growth appears to be increasing it is doing so at [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 09/10/2014 13:24

As AAPL surges back today, it appears the market is more sensitive than many thought to what is happening in Scotland – as we overheard yesterday how meaningless Scottish GDP is compared to America’s. However, a flashing red headline on Bloomberg from a Survation [...]

Government Health Care Inc : The Chart Which Explains The Whole Medical Mess

davidstockmanscontracorner.com / by David Stockman / September 10, 2014

Our crony-capitalist driven health care system is devouring the American economy, and the data which proves that baleful trend could not be more dispositive. In 1960, national health expenditures amounted to $150 per capita and hardly 5% of GDP. By the year 2000, these figures had [...]

There Goes GDP: Wholesale Inventories Miss, Weakest Since May 2013

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 09/10/2014 10:08

With GDP now basically an exercise in inventory expansion and contraction (Q2 inventory estimate amounted to 40% of GDP), this ‘miss’ in July Wholesale Inventories provides a worrying glimpse into Q3 GDP. Against expectations on a 0.5% rise MoM, inventories rose only 0.1% (and June was [...]

Japan GDP Collapses 7.1% After Tax Increase – OOPS!

armstrongeconomics.com / by Martin Armstrong / September 9, 2014

Often I get nasty emails from socialists who just want to raise taxes on the rich to punish them for having more than they do. Sorry, an honest correlation between economic growth and taxes demonstrates the higher the tax rate, the lower the economic growth. Japan’s [...]

Gold’s Transition Zone: Investor Strategy

news.goldseek.com / By Stewart Thomson / 9 September 2014

The QE program created substantial hedge fund interest in gold-related ETFs. Unfortunately, QE never created the inflation the funds had anticipated. That’s because commercial banks held the QE money they received, “tight to the chest”, rather than loaning it to businesses and consumers. In a nutshell, [...]

France has no problem borrowing… because it will not hesitate to plunder its citizens’ accounts!

goldbroker.com / Philippe Herlin / Sept 5, 2014

On Monday, France borrowed at a negative rate, which means investors are losing money… they’re paying to deposit their money! Even though this is for short-term loans (3, 6 and 12 months, for a total of 8.2 billion euros) at rates slightly below zero (-0.002% to -0.004%), [...]

The US Housing ‘Recovery’ In 1 Chart

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 09/04/2014 21:00

Context is king. Week-in, week-out, we are reassured by whoever the next talking-head is that the recovery-meme is alive-and-well (despite consensus GDP expectations continued to slide for 2014), and that housing is back. The fact that mortage applications inched 0.2% higher on the week (as mortgage rates [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden / 09/04/2014 09:05

Where To From Here?

I know this super highway. This bright familiar sun. I guess that I’m the lucky one…

~ Steely Dan

The financial markets were certainly correct in dismissing that rather abysmal first quarter 2014 GDP print, no? After all, the current 4.2% GDP [...]
