    David to Adanlerma:  "fast works better because it is more sensitive to price changes in a given time period, so I find it is easier to identify a bottom right as it’s occurring. Slow takes just too long for daytrading."

    RMM – For KSS, we haven’t seen a ton of retail data coming out, but I like Kohl’s for this quarter. We still have a lot of unemploment and safe buying. Kohls compared to other department stores is cheaper and more affordable. I think that is good for KSS. Their earnings estimates, however, have been adjusted as such. The estimates are above one year ago, and we are in a tough economy. Questionable… KSS, however, is known for beating expectations time and time again, and I like that track record. KSS, however, is overvalued. Question how much higher it can go without smashing results.

    WMT you can’t bet against, but I look at that chart and it is very toppy. Unless it smashes results it won’t move a ton, and analysts are usually pretty close on the estimates. Obviously a beat is good, and they continue to beat expectations.

    I think, though, you have found two stocks that have a lot of earnings already priced in, and I am not sure they are the most profitable options.

    Lotsa ink and endless talking heads to keep the bored, the fanatics on the left and right, the bloogers and their respondees, ‘experts’, eCONomists, and clueless citizens glued to this fight to the death.  Gladiators and lions, hurtling at one another, fangs bared, snarling and bloody.
    IF no one else will say it, then I will:   There will be no default. 
    Clear?
    Now let’s get serious and move on to something genuinely disastrous:  Joe Cassano, Dick Fuld, Chris Cox, Chris Dodd, Barney Frank, Franklin Raines, Ken Lewis, Angelo "the Tan" Godzillo, Lou Ranieri, Hank Paulson, AIG’s Greenberg, Jimmy Cayne, Bob Rubin, Bill Clinton, George Bush, The Bernank, Timmay, Kaskari, Orszag, Gensler, etc ad nauseum—-all these people are doing Sunday Brunch at exclusive clubs all over the world, while they should be in a Prisoners’ Mess hall eating porridge.
    Nice that their accomplices in government have managed time after time to create new false crises to get our minds off of their criminal, avaricious, gluttonous, unethical, immoral, and self-dealing behavior.  While the 90% of the people have had to move giant steps backwards these sons of bitches have only increased their take of the economic pie.
    Well, the Flipster doesn’t forget.  And one day they will all pay for their rapacious violation of our treasure.  Count on it.

Why Have Young People In Japan Stopped Having Sex?

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Tyler Durden.

Japan’s under-40s appear to be losing interest in conventional relationships. Millions aren’t even dating, and increasing numbers can’t be bothered with sex. For their government, “celibacy syndrome” is part of a looming national catastrophe. Japan already has one of the world’s lowest birth rates. As The Guardian reports, 45% of Japanese women aged 16-24 are “not interested in or despise sexual contact”. More than a quarter of men feel the same way. Is Japan providing a glimpse of all our futures? Many of the shifts there are occurring in other advanced nations, too. Across urban Asia, Europe and America, people are marrying later or not at all, birth rates are falling, single-occupant households are on the rise and, in countries where economic recession is worst, young people are living at home…

 

 

Via The Guardian,

Ai Aoyama is a sex and relationship counsellor who works out of her narrow three-storey home on a Tokyo back street… she did “all the usual things” like tying people up and dripping hot wax on their nipples. Her work today, she says, is far more challenging. Aoyama, 52, is trying to cure what Japan’s media calls sekkusu shinai shokogun, or “celibacy syndrome”.

Japan’s under-40s appear to be losing interest in conventional relationships. Millions aren’t even dating, and increasing numbers can’t be bothered with sex. For their government, “celibacy syndrome” is part of a looming national catastrophe. Japan already has one of the world’s lowest birth rates. Its population of 126 million, which has been shrinking for the past decade, is projected to plunge a further one-third by 2060. Aoyama believes the country is experiencing “a flight from human intimacy” – and it’s partly the government’s fault.

The number of single people has reached a record high. A survey in 2011 found that 61% of unmarried men and 49% of women aged 18-34 were not in any kind of romantic relationship, a rise of almost 10% from five years earlier. Another study found that a third of people under 30 had never dated at all. (There are no figures for same-sex relationships.) Although there has long been a pragmatic separation of love and sex in Japan – a country mostly free of religious morals – sex fares no better. A survey earlier…

As we explained last week, the sad fact is that cashed-strapped Americans are looking for new ways to make money and selling body parts is becoming a rising trend. Bloomberg crunched the numbers and found out what parts will earn the biggest pay day on and off the black market.

    isn’t there some-way to dis-seminate this information out — somebody would know some good blogger, journalist, somebody in academia etc. who can start making some noise and get attention ? Talk to some congress-man/senator etc etc.  or are we just plain SOL ?

Trump and the problem with pardons

As a veteran, I was astonished by the recent news that President Trump may be considering pardons for U.S. military members accused or convicted of war crimes. But as a scholar who studies the U.S. military and combat ethics, I understand even more clearly the harmful long-term impact such pardons can have on the military.

Macron Suffers Huge Blow With Defeat To Le Pen

In what may be the biggest shock from today's European parliamentary elections, President Emmanuel Macron is set to suffer a blow with French voters set to hand a victory to Marine Le Pen’s National Rally, picking the vocal Eurosceptic and nationalist over the former Rothschild banker.

Macron’s En Marche (Republic on The Move) will have just 22.5% of the vote compared with 24% for Le Pen, according to pollsters Ifop. With Macron and Le Pen neck and neck ahead of the elections, the outcome will be a...

DAX (Germany) About To Send A Bearish Message To The S&P 500?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble.

Is the DAX index from Germany about to send a bearish message to stocks in Europe and the States? Sure could!

This chart looks at the DAX over the past 9-years. It’s spent the majority of the past 8-years inside of rising channel (1), creating a series of higher lows and higher highs.

It looks to have created a “Double Top” as it was kissing the underside of the rising channel last year at (2).

After creating the potential double top, the DAX index has continued to create a series of lower highs, while experiencing a bearish divergence with the S...

Despacito - How to Make Money the Old-Fashioned Way - SLOWLY!

Are you ready to retire?  

For most people, the purpose of investing is to build up enough wealth to allow you to retire.  In general, that's usually enough money to reliably generate a year's worth of your average income, each year into your retirement so that that, plus you Social Security, should be enough to pay your bills without having to draw down on your principle.

Unfortunately, as the last decade has shown us, we can't count on bonds to pay us more than 3% and the average return from the stock market over the past 20 years has been erratic - to say the least - with 4 negative years (2000, 2001, 2002 and 2008) and 14 positives, though mostly in the 10% range on the positives.  A string of losses like we had from 2000-02 could easily wipe out a decades worth of gains.

Still, the stock market has been better over the last 10 (7%) an...

It's Not Capitalism, it's Crony Capitalism

Excerpt:

The threat to America is this: we have abandoned our core philosophy. Our first principle of this nation as a meritocracy, a free-market economy, where competition drives economic decision-making. In its place, we have allowed a malignancy to fester, a virulent pus-filled bastardized form of economics so corrosive in nature, so dangerously pestilent, that it presents an extinction-level threat to America – both the actual nation and the “idea” of America.
