where contacts were not honored ? In the 70's financials made up 8% of the S&P today it's closer to 29%
with derivatives Wouldn't it make more sense to be long more electric utilities which have underperformed for a long time and shouldn't there be a reversion back to the mean? I've always thought that in order to outperform one has to be right on the "macro picture" first then drill down and buy the best companies or the ones that put the greatest amount of their sales dollars back into R & D.
When you compete on price it's a race to zero. Do you really think that the banks are actually marking their real estate to the market ? After Janet Yellen's comets today don't you think that she's telling the world that we can't stop the buying back treasuries and the taper will continue at 8o Billion plus a month for a long time. You can't win at poker when the rest of the world can see your cards.
Helicopter been left a mess. Janet Yellin has no choice but to continue to print, print, print
while the GLD and CEF continue to print more certificates that actual Gold held in reserve.
Does anyone even think of these things. When Paulson at Goldman holds up the U.S. for a 700 Billion dollar bailout while Blankefeld tells people he's doing God's work while GS is putting together baskets of overpriced mortgage backs and allowing the other side of GS to cherry pick which baskets their preferred clients are allowed to Short ?? How is GS allowed to get away with this deceptive behavior ?
What a mockery of markets. Who was the firm that allowed Greece to to deceive it's creditors with
GS to structure deceptive mortgage backed baskets that were truly weapons of mass destructions.
To be 19 % long financials you're trying to catch a falling knife ? Has that ever worked for you in the past ? Be different think for your self. I thought you were a smart guy. You're just following the herd.
Think outside the box and for yourself. Just because previous metrics tell you something is cheap don't mean it is.. Just like all the fools who took down the muni offering in Puerto Rico this past week.
We need to get people back to work and you should only be looking at things to invest in where there is pricing power. So to be so blunt but I'm surprised you're listening to the majority of talking heads.
