Deutsche Bank: What the Hell is Going On?

Courtesy of Mish.

Deutsche banks shares are plunging again in morning European tradings. It’s 4:13 AM in Chicago, but Germany is seven hours ahead making it 11:13 AM in Germany.

Deutsche Bank shares today set yet another record low in price. The Telegraph reports Deutsche Bank rout deepens: Shares plunge below €10 for first time ever.

What is going on?

Perception Issue

The first thing we can rule out is Deutsche Bank’s comment this is a “perception issue”.

Banking stocks do not plunge from over $100 to under $10 on perception issues.

Extreme Incompetence: Failure to Destroy Your Own Currency Even When You Try

Courtesy of Mish.

Japan’s prime minister Shinzo Abe is the most incompetent politician in the world as measured by his words vs. what is happening.

Abe has repeatedly promised promised to get inflation above 2%. That goal is amazingly easy. I provided examples twice. Yet here we are. Abenomics is a complete failure.

For the 20th time (at least)  in 10 years, Japan Suffers Setback in War on Deflation.

Japan remains in the grip of deflation, with consumer prices falling for a fifth consecutive month and price momentum slowing further in August.

Headline consumer prices were down 0.5 per cent on a year earlier, in line with analyst expectations, reflecting the impact of weak oil prices and a strong yen.

But more alarming for the Bank of Japan was the weakening of a crucial measure of inflation that strips out volatile food and energy prices to an annual rise of just 0.2 per cent.

That suggests lower prices for imported commodities are spreading to domestically produced goods and services, highlighting how hard it will be for the BoJ to reach its 2 per cent inflation target in the near future.

Commitment to be Irresponsible

On September 21, I commented on Japan’s “Commitment to be Irresponsible”.

Instead of targeting 2% inflation, the bank of Japan announced it had a goal of exceeding 2% inflation.

I nearly fell off my chair laughing for two reasons.

  1. The asininity of demanding inflation in a deflationary world.
  2. Failure to achieve that goal despite the ease in achieving the goal.

These economic illiterates actually believe that announcing inflation targets will generate inflation. If that was the case, the announcement of a 2% inflation target would have worked a decade or more ago.

Amazingly, mainstream media praises Abe and the Bank of Japan for their firm commitment to insanity.

Pizzaflation and the US Dollar collapse

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Sometimes the best economic analysis comes anecdotally.  Why not explain the most important economic issue of our day with America's favorite food: PIZZA.  As we explain in our book Splitting Pennies – Understanding Forex, the real reason of inflation is because of monetary policy, not supply and demand.

In case you didn't know, facts about Pizza

Pizza is actually America's favorite food.  The Atlantic covered a DOA report that showed the cheesy stats:

Like football, pop music, and democracy itself, pizza follows in the long American tradition of things that began overseas before the United States imported, violently altered, and eventually defined the institution. Although the first pizza shops didn't open in the U.S. until the early 20th century, hundreds of years after the original Neapolitan pies, we now spend $37 billion a year on pizza, accounting for a third of the global market. The obsession deepens. On any given day, about 13 percent of Americans eat pizza, according to a new report from the Department of Agriculture. One in six guys between the ages of two and 39 ate it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner today. In part due to this obsession, per capita consumption of cheese is up 41 percent since 1995. Drawn from the report, here are seven facts about Americans and pizza, presented free of moralizing comments about whether or not it is healthy or sensible for the American diet to consist so overwhelming of bread adorned with tomato-cheesey gloop.

Pizza, is actually an AMERICAN food, brought to America by the Italians.  Pizza was invented in Italy, but in Italy, Pizza is completely different, and not very popular.  In fact, Pizza is most popular in America.  It's more American than Apple Pie.  Check it out:

In 1905, a slice of pizza cost five cents. During the Depression, when families did not have much money, pizza became popular with everyone in the United States. Families were eating different types of pizza on the east and west coasts. A thick-crust pizza was called double-crust pizza or west coast pizza. When they had a large exhibit about pizza at the Texas State Fair, more people inquired about

Conversation With Atlanta Fed on Today’s GDP Revision and Its Impact on 3rd Quarter GDP Estimates

Courtesy of Mish.

Today the BEA released its Third Estimate for Second Quarter GDP. The third (final) estimate bumped up the prior estimate from 1.1% to 1.4%.

The BEA changed the name from “final estimate” to “third estimate” because GDP is subject to revisions years or even decades later.

I am curious how this would impact the Atlanta Fed GDPNow forecast and the FRBNY Nowcast estimate both due out tomorrow. I have a detailed answer from Pat Higgins at the Atlanta Fed, creator of GDPNow.

Hi Mish,

I can give you a more detailed answer tomorrow after the GDPNow update is released. We don’t do an update today because the monthly real PCE data consistent with the revised Q2 real PCE growth rate are not released until tomorrow.

Except for consumer spending, each GDPNow subcomponent forecast is a weighted average of two forecasts. One forecast from a quarterly BVAR [Bayesian Vector AutoRegression] model that uses the GDP subcomponents and one forecast that uses the monthly source data with bridge equations.

The forecasts from the quarterly BVAR model can change when the quarterly subcomponents are revised. Subcomponents that put a nontrivial weight on the quarterly BVAR forecasts, like intellectual property products investment, can change somewhat after a GDP revision. Subcomponents that do not, like residential investment, will probably not be impacted much by the revision.

The forecast of Q3 real consumer spending can change because of the revisions to monthly PCE generally released the business day after the GDP report. And the forecast for the change in inventory investment can change as well. GDPNow forecasts the revision to inventory investment for the previous quarter (Q2 currently) up until the third GDP report released today. Going forward, GDPNow will use the revised Q2 inventory investment number released today when forecasting the change in Q3 inventory investment because that Q2 number will not be revised again until next year.

Today the “Advance Economic Indicators” report was released.

Tomorrow’s GDPNow update will also take that data into account. That could make it a tricky to determine how much, if any, revision to the GDPNow forecast is due to the GDP revision, the monthly PCE revisions and data for August, and the advance economic indicators release.

Best regards,

Pat

Thanks Pat!

I learn a lot from these discussions,

Beating Your Own Investments

Beating Your Own Investments

Courtesy of 

Add Julian Robertson and Howard Marks to the long list of billionaires that are less than optimistic about the future. All the reasons they cite are unfortunately very compelling, but pessimists always sound intelligent. You can probably count on one hand the number of investors that were actually able to capitalize on their pessimism.

But let’s say all these billionaires are right and U.S. stocks will in fact experience lower returns going forward. A good strategy would be to have your rate of investment outpace the return on your investment. As an example, let’s say you’ve saved some money and have $10,000 to invest. And let’s also assume that you add an additional $100 a month and grow that investment by 1% a month, so that by month two you’re investing $101, $102 by month three and so on. By the 240th month, your last investment in your future of $1,078 will be 978% higher than your initial $100 deposit. A total of $109,000 invested will turn into $138,788 if you earned 3%, $151,481 if you earned 4%, and $164,100 if you earned 4%. Not great, but not terrible either.

market-returns

The last time U.S. stocks had a twenty-year period that compounded at less than six percent was in the early 1950s as we slowly recovered from the great depression. But nobody can be certain that low returns won’t happen again and in fact, I’d guess it’s likely they will at some point. Maybe Central Banks are inflating bubbles right now and I just don’t know it. Or maybe past is not prologue and in three hundred years people will look back at the twentieth century and realize those high returns for U.S. stocks was an outlier.

market

If we are in a low return environment, there are two ways alchemists can get high returns: they can either pick stocks that do better than the market, or they can time the market, both difficult propositions and games that I personally have no desire to play. I can’t control the returns that the market will deliver, but by investing at a higher growth rate than my investments, I can stack the odds in my favor.

Just 3 Things

Courtesy of Lance Roberts of Real Investment Advice 

Confidence Peak

It was interesting to see the markets reaction to the Consumer Confidence report on Tuesday, along with some of the media headlines, to wit:

“Consumer confidence just surged to its highest level since the recession. The latest reading on consumer confidence from the Conference Board came in at 104.1 for September, up from the prior month’s 101.8. The index touched 105.6 in August 2007.”

There are a couple of important points to consider in the statement above.

First, it is NOT surprising that after 8-years of an economic recovery that consumer confidence has finally recovered all the way back to where it was prior to the last recession. This is what you would expect of during any economic recovery, much less one driven by massive liquidity injections, Government programs to promote consumption and ongoing Central Bank interventions. The fact we are only NOW back at previous highs shows just how fractured the domestic economy was, and likely still is.

Secondly, and most importantly, records are a record for a reason. Record levels denote the point that previously marked the end of a cycle, not the beginning of a new one. This point is often missed by the mainstream media. Record highs of anything, whether it is economic, fundamental or financial data, are warnings signs of late stage events.

The chart below is the COMPOSITE confidence index which is an average of the Conference Board and University of Michigan consumer confidence indices.

consumer-sentiment-composite-092716

As I said, it is not surprising that consumers are THE MOST optimistic just prior to the onset of a recession.

But is there a possibility of a recession?

On Tuesday, I discussed the MOST IMPORTANT economic indicator – the Chicago Fed National Activity Index.

“While economic numbers like GDP or the monthly non-farm payroll report typically garner the headlines, one of the most useful economic measures is the Chicago Fed National Activity Index (CFNAI). The index is a composite index made up of 85 subcomponents which give a broad overview of overall economic activity in the U.S. Unfortunately, the media gives it little attention.

Currently, the CFNAI is not confirming the mainstream view of stronger

EC Takes Germany to Court Over Unfair Road Taxes: Freedom of Movement of Goods Discrimination

Courtesy of Mish.

“Millions of foreign vehicles criss-cross Germany every year, one of the few countries on mainland Europe not to have widespread tolls on its roads. Neighbouring countries such as Austria, Switzerland and France all charge motorway users, triggering resentment from drivers in the German regions that border them,” says the Financial Times.

Germany responded by placing its own tolls. Germany also let owners of German registered vehicles deduct those tolls from their annual vehicle tax bill.

Unfair Discrimination” whines the EU nannycrats to the European Court of Justice.

germany-tolls

Brussels is taking Berlin to court over Germany’s controversial plan to charge foreign drivers for using its roads, bringing a simmering two-year row into its final stages.

While the charges of up to €130 per year will apply to all users, German registered vehicles are able to deduct the charges from their annual vehicle tax bill — a benefit that the commission says is “discriminatory”.

The proposed fees for short-term access to Germany meanwhile are “disproportionately high”, according to the European Commission, which made the decision to bring Germany before the European Court of Justice on Thursday.

Germany had braced itself for a long legal fight, with the country’s transport minister stating in April that he was prepared to take the disagreement all the way to the EU’s top court. If the court agrees with the commission, Germany would face having to rewrite its law — and face fines if it does not.

Alexander Dobrindt, the German transport minister, said the toll “conforms to European law, and the European Court will confirm that”. He has argued that there are tolls in other European countries and money raised through the levy will go towards Germany’s transport infrastructure.

“Germany doesn’t need any toll,” said Oliver Krischer, a leading Green MP. “It doesn’t yield anything, is highly bureaucratic and contrary to European law. It also has no incentive effect in terms of the environment.”

The European Commission is also examining a similar scheme in the UK, in which British truck drivers can deduct a levy from their domestic vehicle tax, while foreign drivers cannot. This investigation is still ongoing.

“We are concerned that the German system discriminates against drivers from other member states,” said a spokesperson for the European Commission. “It will lead to a situation where German users — and

US Spending Disappoints In August As Savings Rate Rises For Second Month

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

After pesonal spending growth slowed modestly one month ago, rising 3.8% Y/Y, in August US consumption once again disappointed, staying flat in the month, below the 0.1% expected sequential rebound, although this was offset by an upward revision to the last month's data from 0.3% to 0.4%. On an inflation adjusted basis, as feeds into the GDP beancount, Real PCE dipped -0.1% in August, well below July's 0.3% bounce, missing the expectation of a 0.1% rise while the Core PCE Index was inline with the 1.7% expected on a Y/Y basis.

IRS Walks Tightrope in Plan to Use Private Debt Collectors

The Internal Revenue Service is looking to use private contractors to help collect tax debt but some warn there is a risk of increased scams and abuse.

The IRS announced its intent to use private debt collectors  Sept. 26 in response to a congressional order. The federal agency hopes to have the program operational by spring. The idea could help the agency to more efficiently collect tax debt, but it might also be opening the door to fraud and abuse.
