The Long-Term Bond-Yield Channel

Here’s an excellent chart site by Chris Kimble, which I found via another great site, Doug Short’s, from which I’ve been posting a variety of market related charts recently.  Check them both out:  Chris Kimble’s site here, and Doug Short’s site here.  - Ilene 

The Long-Term Bond-Yield Channel 

Courtesy of Chris Kimble, via Doug Short 

Technical analyst Chris Kimble sent me a link to his latest chart of 30-year bond yields, which gives us a fascinating comparison with the first Kimble chart I posted on February 26th. The top chart below is the new snapshot. Following his remarks is the earlier chart (see the February article here).

For the majority of the past 13-years, the yield on the 30-year bond has stayed inside of a falling channel. Yields are moving higher, off of support at (2). For those looking to score on defense, buying TBF, with a stop on break of the bottom of the channel is the play at hand!

"Massive Shock" Looms In Japan As Kuroda Is In "Jeopardy", According To $2 Trillion Investor

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Yesterday, in our post-mortem on the Jackson Hole symposium, we found one particular highlight most notable: according to Princeton University economist Christopher Sims, "policymakers were told that it may take a massive program, large enough even to shock taxpayers into a different, inflationary view of the future." And, as has been customary over the past year, the place where this "shock therapy" will be tested first, will be ...

Banks attempting to breakout of pennant pattern

Courtesy of Chris Kimble.

When one looks back over the past 10-years and compares the performance of Banks to the broad markets, banks look broken. We shared with members last week that since the highs in 2007, banks have under performed the S&P 500 by nearly 77%. Is this under performance about to end?

Real Disposable Income Per Capita in July

Courtesy of Doug Short's Advisor Perspectives.

With the release of today's report on July Personal Incomes and Outlays we can now take a closer look at "Real" Disposable Personal Income Per Capita.

At two decimal places, the nominal 0.36% month-over-month increase in disposable income was unchanged when we adjust for inflation. The year-over-year metrics are 2.78% nominal and 1.97% real.

The first chart shows both the nominal per capita disposable income and the real (inflation-adjusted) equivalent since 2000. This indicator was significantly disrupted by the bizarre but predictable oscillation caused by 2012 year-end tax strategies in expectation of tax hikes in 2013.

The BEA uses the average dollar value in 2009 for inflation adjustment. But the 2009 peg is arbitrar...

Sandell: Separating BEF Foods And Bob Evans Restaurants

By VW Staff. Originally published at ValueWalk.

Sandell Asset Management: Separating BEF Foods And Bob Evans Restaurants.

Introduction
  • We believe the underlying value of Bob Evans Farms, Inc. (“Bob Evans” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BOBE) is substantially higher than its current stock price and we believe that the value of the wholly-owned Bob Evans Farms Foods (“BEF Foods”) business may exceed the enterprise value of the entire Company. We continue to believe the Company should pursue a separation of its Bob Evans Restaurants (“Restaurants”) and BEF Foods business segments

Renzi's Great Gamble

 

Renzi’s Great Gamble

Courtesy of John Mauldin of Mauldin Economics' Outside the Box

There is an extremely important election coming up, and I am not talking about the US presidential election. The upcoming referendum in either October or November in Italy may have as much or even more macroeconomic impact on the world as the US election, but hardly anyone outside of Italy is paying much attention to it – yet.

I have been saying for some time in interviews around the country that I think the referendum in Italy has even more potential impact than the Brexit vote did in the United Kingdom. And just like the Brexit vote, it is rife with emotion and political turmoil, making the outcome too close to call.

If you are a voter in Italy, your frustr...

Epizyme - A Waiting Game

Reminder: Pharmboy is available to chat with Members, comments are found below each post.

Epizyme was founded in 2007, and trying to create drugs to treat patient's cancer by focusing on genetically-linked differences between normal and cancer cells. Cancer areas of focus include leukemia, Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and breast cancer.  One of the Epizme cofounders, H. Robert Horvitz, won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2002 for "discoveries concerning genetic regulation of organ development and programmed cell death."

Before discussing the drug targets of Epizyme, understanding epigenetics is crucial to comprehend the company's goals.  

Genetic components are the DNA sequences that are 'inherited.'  Some of these genes are stronger than others in their expression (e.g., eye color).  Yet, some genes turn on or off due to external factors (environmental), and it is und...

Help One Of Our Own PSW Members

"Hello PSW Members –

This is a non-trading topic, but I wanted to post it during trading hours so as many eyes can see it as possible.  Feel free to contact me directly at jennifersurovy@yahoo.com with any questions.

Last fall there was some discussion on the PSW board regarding setting up a YouCaring donation page for a PSW member, Shadowfax. Since then, we have been looking into ways to help get him additional medical services and to pay down his medical debts.  After following those leads, we are ready to move ahead with the YouCaring site. (Link is posted below.)  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated; not only to help aid in his medical bill debt, but to also show what a great community this group is.

Thank you for you time!
