doctorhousingbubble.com / 18 Oct, 2014

mybudget360.com / OCT 17, 2014

Homebuilders Setting Up For Another Short Entry

investmentresearchdynamics.com / David Kranzler / October 18, 2014

The homebuilder stocks staged a dead-cat bounce higher this week. I have been saying that the builders were very oversold and would likely engage in a sharp short-squeeze rally. Today’s huge short-squeeze move – see this link – in the entire stock market added fuel to [...]

zerohedge.com / by Tyler Durden on 10/15/2014 11:14

Remember that in addition to its primary function, which is to push stocks higher i.e., the “wealth effect”, the Fed’s Quantitative Easing has another just as important role: to monetize the US deficit. Which is why the news that was released moments ago from the Treasury, namely [...]

doctorhousingbubble.com / 4 Oct, 2014

There is little arguing that Santa Monica is prime Westside real estate. Some would like to believe that somehow Pacoima, Compton, or Lawndale are somehow new prime markets but there is little dispute that Santa Monica is fairly elite when it comes to SoCal housing. I enjoy Santa Monica and [...]

Peak Housing 2.0—Why This Bubble Correction Will Be A “Doozy”
