  • Silicon Valley Billionaires Are the New Robber Barons

    National Review ^ | August 17, 2017 | Victor Davis Hanson
    Progressives used to pressure U.S. corporations to cut back on outsourcing and on the tactic of building their products abroad to take advantage of inexpensive foreign workers. During the 2012 election, President Obama attacked Mitt Romney as a potential illiberal “outsourcer-in-chief” for investing in companies that went overseas in search of cheap labor. Yet most of the computers and smartphones sold by Silicon Valley companies are still being built abroad — to mostly silence from progressive watchdogs.
  • MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle Attributes Market Confidence to Trump Cutting Regulations

    Washington Free Bacon ^ | 08/02/2017 | Cameron Cawthorne
    MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle on Wednesday attributed strong markets to President Donald Trump's campaign promise of cutting regulations, which she said held up profitability during the Obama administration. "The markets are very very strong, " Ruhle said. "Why is that? Now across the board, we have low volatility. We have strong earnings. The market has been chugging along." Ruhle went on to question whether the Dow Jones Industrial Average's success can be attributed to Trump himself, saying there is a disconnect between the two. "But on the positive, what we do have now is a market that corporate America is...

    FEE (the Foundation for Economic Education) ^ | Wednesday, February 15, 2017 | Iain Murray
    A recent report by the Economic Policy Institute blamed trade with China for the loss of 3.4 million manufacturing jobs since 2001. Don Boudreaux of George Mason University analyzes this claim in detail here, where he points out that innovation and automation are more likely culprits. But whether the jobs are lost as a result of international trade or domestic commerce, his most important point is that this is creative destruction. Stifled Creativity It is to creative destruction, a process first properly recognized by Joseph Schumpeter (whose 134th birthday it is today), that we owe much of human progress and...

    Where will the stock market go in the Trump administration? During the Obama presidency, it has advanced nicely, even amid so-so growth. Andrew Houghton and Nicholas Atkeson of Delta Investment Management in San Francisco show us why a bullish view for the market has further to rise. The presidential election cycle occurs every four years, no matter what is going on with the economic cycle and stock market. Barack Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009. The country had been in recession 14 months, the housing market bubble had popped over a year earlier and the S&P 500 had lost roughly 46%...

  • RED ALERT — Get ready for a 'severe fall' in the stock market, HSBC says

    Business Insider ^ | 10/12/16 | Bob Bryan
    HSBC's technical-analysis team has thrown up the ultimate warning signal. In a note to clients released Wednesday, Murray Gunn, the head of technical analysis for HSBC, said he had become on "RED ALERT" for an imminent sell-off in stocks given the price action over the past few weeks. Gunn uses a type of technical analysis called the Elliott Wave Principle, which tracks alternating patterns in the stock market to discern investors' behavior and possible next moves. In late September, Gunn said the stock market's moves looked eerily similar to those just before the 1987 stock market crash. Citi's Tom Fitzpatrick...

    I need some information concerning stock my grandfather had. He owned a portion of Fortune Brands when he died many years ago. I am trying to make an accounting of all his remaining estate. I just learned that in October 2011, which was after grandfather's death, Fortune Brands split into two separate companies, Beams and Fortune Brand Gone and Security. My questions are: what happened to the stock? If there is still stock there, how can the estate apprehend it? I have already searched through my state's abandoned property files.

    Early this morning we laid out the thoughts of RCB's Charlie McElligott on today's dramatic market action, which discussed not the blow up of "fat tail" quant stategies (something we touched upon later and which is likely to unleash even more quant-driven selling next week) and the "forced out" liquidations across the curve coupled with a rush into safety, but also the biggest question of all for today's trades - which macro funds are quietly blowing up? Now, we follow it up with a second piece by the RBC trader, one which those worried about being caught long risk over...

    The "golden age" of stock market returns is over.That's the summary of a big piece of research from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), which estimated returns over the next 20 years in US and Western European markets under two scenarios. The first assumes that today's slow-growth environment remains, while the second models faster growth as technology improves.It concluded that in neither case would returns match those of the past 30 years. For US and European stocks, the difference between past and future annual returns could range from 1.5 percentage points to 4 percentage points. The gap for fixed-income could be...

    Indeed, thanks to a number of global pressures including fears of a worldwide economic slowdown, Wall Street saw the worst-ever 10-day start to a year in January. The major averages saw steep declines that sent the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Nasdaq Composite into correction territory. However, Wall Street has managed to claw back from steep year-to-date losses – with the Dow back in positive territory for the period -- as U.S. economic data show the domestic economy remains on the path to recovery and the Federal Reserve continues to hint more rate hikes are in store for the...

    The Economist ^ | March 26, 2016 | From the print edition
    AMERICA used to be the land of opportunity and optimism. Now opportunity is seen as the preserve of the elite: two-thirds of Americans believe the economy is rigged in favour of vested interests. And optimism has turned to anger. Voters’ fury fuels the insurgencies of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders and weakens insiders like Hillary Clinton. The campaigns have found plenty of things to blame, from free-trade deals to the recklessness of Wall Street. But one problem with American capitalism has been overlooked: a corrosive lack of competition. -snip- The second step is to make life easier for startups and...

    "Can I get an amen?" -- Reverend LeRoy, The Church of What's Happening Now, The Flip Wilson Show As I've previously noted, I believe a broadening and important market top is in place, and that a relatively meaningful portion of stocks' daily moves are exaggerated by gamma hedging, risk parity and other quant strategies. If I'm correct, buying on strength in an attempt to sell on more strength isn't advisable -- and it's certainly not the route that I'm taking in today's market. Let's look at why: Fundamentals I remain cautious on a market that's characterized by: * Wobbly fundamentals...

    You would think that the simultaneous crashing of all of the largest stock markets around the world would be very big news. But so far, mainstream media in the United States are treating it like it isn't really a big deal.Over the last 60 days, we have witnessed the most significant global stock market decline since fall 2008, and yet most people still seem to think that this is just a temporary "bump in the road" and that the bull market will soon resume. Hopefully they are right.When the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted 777 points on Sept. 29, 2008,...
