“Elon Wants This Fat P*ssy”: Azealia Banks Posts Text Message Flame War With Grimes

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Just a couple of days ago we posted that subpoenas could be forthcoming for Elon Musk’s ex-girlfriend, Grimes, and Musk’s one time houseguest Azealia Banks, as part of an investor lawsuit against Musk for last summer’s “funding secured” fiasco. We said in the post that the discovery process in the case could lead to interesting information as to what was going on behind the scenes, and in the mind of the parties involved, during the time Musk is alleged to have committed securities fraud.

It now looks like we may not even need to wait – according to an unverified Twitter account (and semi-confirmed circumstantially by statements made on Banks’ Instagram) Azealia Banks allegedly recently posted conversations of text messages between her and Grimes from the summer of 2018. Upon examining these alleged text messages it appears as though Banks and Grimes had a massive falling out in August 2018 that led to a text message flame war. 

The texts show Grimes allegedly calling Banks a “narc” and Banks leading on that Elon Musk might be interested in her instead of Grimes. Banks calls Grimes a “sore loser” and later tells her she doesn’t “even have bone marrow”. 

After being called fat, Banks allegedly tells Grimes she smells “like a roll of nickels” and that she’s “not enough woman” for a man like Musk. “Elon is way out of your league,” Banks says. “He wants me…bad,” she continues. 

After Grimes allegedly pokes Banks with a food joke, Banks follows up by informing her that “Elon wants this fat pussy”. She tells Grimes she needs “an IV and a tan” as well as “some breast implants, lip fillers and a burger”. 

“You’re a basic white woman,” Banks allegedly says to Grimes. “I am by nature – superior to you, dear,” she continues, before Grimes finally ends the conversation. “Sweet narc dreams,” Grimes says to Banks, who signs off by saying “OK you brittleboned methhead”. 

Though we were not able to verify these texts from Banks’ instagram at the time we published this, we were able to locate a post in her IG story that seems to allude to the fact that they had been taken down. 

If you couldn’t wait for discovery in this lawsuit before, we can’t imagine how you’re feeling about it now. The strange Tesla saga continues – and it feels like it’s only going to get stranger.





“Recent Market Dynamics Would Be Consistent With The Economy Already In A Recession”

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

One week ago, when we discussed why the Fed now finds itself trapped by the slowing economy on one hand, and the market's response to the Fed's reaction to the slowing economy (namely the market's subsequent sharp rebound, only the third time since 1938 that we've seen a V-shape recovery of this magnitude when the market dropped down more than ~10% and spiked +10% in the subsequent period), we said that the "obvious problem" is that the Fed is cutting because the economy is indeed entering a recession, even as market have already rebounded by over 10% from the recent "bear market" low factoring in a the economic response to an easier Fed, effectively cutting the drop in half expecting the Fed to react precisely to this drop, while ignoring the potential underlying economic reality (the one confirmed by the bizarrely low neutral rate, suggesting that the US economy is far weaker than most expect).

Ultimately, what this all boils down to as Bank of America explained yesterday, is whether the economy is entering a recession, or – somewhat reflexively – whether the suddenly dovish Fed, trapped by the market, has started a chain of events that inevitably ends with a recession. The historical record is ambivalent: as Bloomberg notes, similar to 1998 and 1987, the S&P fell into a bear market last month (from which it immediately rebounded) following a Fed rate hike. The difference is that in the previous two periods, the Fed cut rates in response to market crises – the collapse of Long-Term Capital Management in 1998 and the Black Monday stock crash in 1987 – without the economy slipping into a recession. In comparison, the meltdown in December occurred without a similar market event.

And yet, a meltdown did occur, and it has a lot to do with confusing messaging by the Fed, which did a 180-degree U-Turn when in the span of just two weeks, the Fed chair went from unexpectedly hawkish during the December FOMC press conference (which unleashed fire and brimstone in the market), to blissfully dovish when he conceded at the start of January that the Fed will be "patient" and the balance sheet unwind is not on "autopilot."

But it wasn't just the Fed's messaging in a…

Illinois’ Lethal Combination: Rising Property Taxes & Stagnant Incomes

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Authored by Ted Dabrowski and John Klingner via WirePoints.com,

A lethal combination of rising property taxes and stagnant incomes has forced many Illinoisans to rethink their relationship with their state. More than 1.5 million net residents have already fled the state since 2000 – and you can’t blame others for thinking about joining them.

Property taxes have become punitive in Illinois. We’ve written about how these taxes have destroyed the equity in people’s homes across the state. Many families have done the math, and whether they’re in the struggling south suburbs of Chicago or the affluent North Shore, they’ve decided to leave Illinois behind.

The traditional method for measuring the burden of property taxes is to look at a household’s property tax bill and compare it to a home’s value. Under this method, Illinoisans pay the highest property taxes in the nation. At 2.7 percent, Illinoisans pay far more than residents in neighboring states – twice more than those in Missouri and three times more than residents in Indiana.

That fact is outrageous on its own.

But to really understand the pain that these taxes inflict on Illinoisans, it’s important to compare property tax bills to household incomes. After all, those bills are paid straight from people’s earnings.

The unfortunate reality is that Illinois incomes have been stagnant for years – and falling when you consider the impact of inflation.

Between 2000 and 2017, Illinois median household incomes increased just 34 percent, far short of inflation. In contrast, household property tax bills are up 105 percent, according toIllinois Department of Revenue data.

The net result: Property tax bills per household have grown three times faster than household incomes since 2000.

That means more of Illinoisans’ hard-earned incomes are going toward property taxes and less towards groceries, college tuition, and retirement savings. In 2017, 6.73 percent of household incomes went toward property taxes, up from 4.3 percent in 2000.

That’s a 55 percent increase in the effective tax rate.

The detailed data is below:

Property taxes, county by county

Residents of Lake County pay the highest property taxes in Illinois when measured as a percentage of household incomes. In 2000, Lake County residents paid 6.5 percent of their household incomes toward property taxes. Today, residents pay 9.1 percent. That’s a 40…

China 2018 GDP Growth Slows To Weakest In 28 Years

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Update: Not wanting to bury the lead, here is some context for the mixed bag tonight from China. China’s annual GDP growth in 2018 was +6.6% – that is the weakest annual GDP growth since 1990…

*  *  *

After downbeat headlines over US-China trade talks, and following China’s greatest liquidity injection ever (over 1.1 trillion yuan last week) after weak Chinese macro data in the last few months (including the collapse of China trade data), all eyes were on tonight’s avalanche of China economic data.

The Q3 bounce in macro data was extremely weak…

And yuan has oddly strengthened…

Despite constant easing by fiscal and monetary authorities

After the weakest trade data since 2016, which reflects an end to export front-loading and the start of payback effects…

China just injected a record 1.16 trillion yuan into the financial system… (yea trillion with a ‘t’)

We’ve had no shortage of warning signs in recent weeks and months that the slowdown was becoming more broad based, including the official manufacturing PMI dipped below 50 into contractionary territory for the first time since March 2016.

China’s car sales, for example, declined last year for the first time in more than two decades.

Here’s another sign that China’s economy is slowing: GDP in the southern manufacturing hub of Shenzhen grew at 7.5 percent in 2018, Xinhua reported Friday. That compared with a growth rate of 8.8 percent in 2017, and 9.1 percent in 2016.

So what does tonight hold?

  • China Retail Sales YoY BEAT +8.2% (+8.1% exp)

  • China Industrial Production YoY BEAT +5.7% (+5.3% exp)

  • China Fixed Asset Investment YoY  MISS +5.9%(+6.0% exp)

  • China Property Investment YoY SLOWED +9.5% YoY

  • China Surveyed Jobless Rate WORSENED 4.9%

And last but not least the big one:

  • China GDP YoY SLOWED +6.4% (+6.4% exp)

And visually…

These figures at first glance should alleviate concerns that China’s slowdown would continuously get worse, although the question of course will be how reliable these figures are, but they do suggest that China’s efforts to support growth are already starting to have some effect.

There was no dramatic impact as yet in markets.

The question is – is good new, bad news?

US Futures Tumble After US-China Trade Talks Headlines

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Seemingly confirming what Senator Chuck Grassley said last week had been relayed to him, Bloomberg is reporting that US-China trade talks are faltering as China refutes American claims of IP theft and USTR lighthizer has reportedly told US lawmakers that "little progress" has been made on the critical IP protections.

Bloomberg reports that, according to people close to the discussions, the two sides have so far made little progress on the issue any deal Trump strikes with China may ultimately be judged on: ending what the U.S. has dubbed as decades of state-coordinated Chinese theft of American intellectual property.

The reaction is not positive in the equity futures market…

Bloomberg reports that the discussions that took place earlier in January amounted more to an airing of grievances than constructive negotiations, according to participants and others briefed on the talks.

The lack of progress in discussions on structural issues such as IP was confirmed by Robert Lighthizer, the U.S. trade representative, in a meeting with lawmakers last week, according to congressional aides. His office declined to comment.

As Chinese leader Xi Jinping prepares to send top economic emissary Liu He to Washington for Jan. 30-31 talks, the IP stalemate gets to the heart of Trump’s trade wars and questions over his ability to turn the leverage he’s created with tariffs into meaningful Chinese policy changes. It also points to the potential political fallout.





Hedge Fund CIO: “The Media Has Embraced Ocasio-Cortez Smelling Impressions, Clicks, Blood, Money”

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Submitted by Eric Peters, CIO of One River Asset Management

The US government remained shut. But pollsters carried on. 81% of Likely Democratic Voters favor a Green New Deal, focused on climate change, income inequality and racial injustice — 63% of Republicans are opposed, Independents are evenly divided. 59% of voters support raising the marginal tax rate on the richest Americans to 70%. Democrats overwhelming support the tax hike, with 71% in favor. And even 45% of Republicans back the 70% tax. As the pendulum is just now starting its long arc back toward greater equality.

“Oh? What’s that? The majority of Americans respect when you break down reasonable policy proposals that are designed to combat runaway income inequality and help fund priorities they value most?” tweeted Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) in response to the poll showing the majority of Americans favor a 70% top marginal tax rate.

“What we see, overall, is that the vast majority of Americans know that income inequality is one of the biggest issues of our time,” continued the 29yr old freshman Congresswoman, Champion of Millennials.

“This is a policy that is already popular and it’s time that we embrace working Americans and it’s time that the Democratic Party fights in a full-throated manner for the working class in the United States and to not support a marginal tax rate is to really just allow runaway wealth and inequality to persist,” said AOC, as she went viral, terrifying opponents, invigorating supporters.

The media embraced her, smelling impressions, interactions, clicks, blood, money. You see, as fun as it is to fight amongst ourselves over fences, the real conflict is over America’s vast economic pie, how we divide it, how we spend it.

And when viewed that way, the great battle that emerges is not Democrat versus Republican – that’s just a distraction, distortion, diversion - the real battle is between capital and labor, the wealthy versus everyone else.

The Washington Post estimated the revenue raised over a decade from a 70% top marginal tax rate on those earning $10mm+ could almost fully fund a tuition-free public college plan, forgive over half of US student debt, or nearly pay for a $1trln infrastructure…

Mortgage Stress Test Blamed For 25% Collapse In British Columbia Home Sales

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Home sales in British Columbia, Canada's westernmost province, collapsed in 2018 is mostly correlated to the mortgage stress test that started in January 2018, which decreased buyers’ purchasing power.

The B.C. Real Estate Association (BCREA) reported Tuesday that a total of 78,345 homes were sold on B.C.’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in 2018, a massive drop of 24.5% from the 103,758 units sold in 2017.

“B.C. home sales fell below the 10-year average of 84,800 units in 2018,” said Cameron Muir, BCREA’s chief economist. “The sharp decline in affordability caused by the B20 mortgage stress test is largely to blame for decline in consumer demand last year.”

The slowdown in home sales is a government measure to cool the Greater Vancouver's bubbly housing market that will take full effect in 2019, setting the stage for further declines.

Numerous provincial policies, combined with the federal stress test have clamped down on the buying power of borrowers, leading to a possible near-term top in the housing market.

Despite this rapid slowdown, the average sale price of all homes in the province was the same price versus the previous year, edging up +.40% to $712,508 – an increase of roughly $3,000.

The slight upward trajectory in prices masks the topping activity that was spotted in early 2018. Sales prices continued rising to record levels until late spring, and since, have been declining gradually, as fewer luxury homes sold.

The province experienced the most significant slowdown in sales activity in Greater Vancouver (-30.4%) followed by the Fraser Valley (-26.3%). The only region within the province to see an annual jump in home sales was the Northern region, which saw a rise of 10.2% over 2017. All areas saw a slight year-over-year increase in the average home sale price, but momentum is undoubtedly waning.

The BCREA also reported on December 2018’s housing stats. A total of 3,497 were sold on the province’s MLS in December, down 39.1% from December 2017.

The average price in the province in December was $695,647, a drop of 5.2% compared with December 2017.

The BCREA added, “Total active residential listings were up 33.3% to 27,615 units in December, the highest December inventory since 2014 when 33,995 active residential listings were recorded.”

Despite the significant sales activity slowdown last year, it seems inventory is now flooding the market with declining demand, a move that could send the industry in turmoil by summer. These are the markings of a real estate top. If you live in the British Columbia region, prepare for an economic storm.





Jamaica’s 37-Company Exchange Was 2018′s Best Performing Stock Market

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

The Jamaican stock exchange, unknown to most of the world and which is open for trading only three and a half hours a day, was 2018's best performing stock market.

The exchange – which started 50 years ago, by Edward Seaga, a Jamaican Harvard graduate who worked as a record producer in the 1950s and 1960s – saw its main index up 29% during 2018, the most among 94 national benchmarks according to Bloomberg . Over the last five years, Jamaica's impressive market returns are even more pronounced: Jamaican stocks are up almost 300%, more than quadrupling the next national benchmark and outperforming the S&P 500 nearly seven times.

The blistering ascent of the local stock market took place despite real growth in Jamaica averaging less than 1% over the last four years; in 2018, growth in Jamaica was expected to come in at 1.7%. However, the small size of the local market has kept it relatively insulated from the broader economy, and helped Jamaican equities move as quickly as they have. As a result, the total value of the 37 stocks on the main index is less than $11 billion.

And now, capital is starting to trickle into Kingston as it tries to reinvent itself as a financial hub. Paul Simpson, a 36-year-old banker and investor in Kingston told Bloomberg:  “Clearly, capital goes where it’s comfortable. To see capital coming here means people must be comfortable." That, or they are simply hoping to recreate past returns.

The financial industry in the country is located mostly in the neighborhood of New Kingston. It isn’t a tourist destination like Negril and it isn't impoverished, like Trench Town. Instead, it’s an area where you’ll find Porsche dealerships and Starbucks.

Similar to China, over the past decade, the country's financial sector assets have tripled and its number of financial institutions have multiplied by a factor of eight.

It gets better: the World Bank now ranks Jamaica as the sixth best nation for ease of starting a business. Economist Uma Ramakrishnan, the IMF’s Jamaica mission chief said that "If I could

Bogle’s Big Mistake

 

Bogle’s Big Mistake

Courtesy of 

The world lost a legend this week. Jack Bogle had a greater impact on the average investor than anyone who ever lived.

Bogle, however, was not an overnight sensation. The index fund, which he is best known for, wasn’t created until his fifth decade on the planet.

I wanted to share the challenges he overcame on his way to cementing a place on the Mount Rushmore of finance with this chapter from my book, Big Mistakes: The Best Investors and Their Worst Investments.

Rest in peace, Jack.

Source: WSJ 

Sometimes in life, we make the greatest forward progress by going
backward.

—Jack Bogle

The Vanguard 500 Index fund is the world’s largest mutual fund, with
$292 billion in assets. That’s 292 followed by nine zeros. How do you
get to be so gigantic? Start with $11 million and grow 29% per year for
the next 40 years. To give you an idea of how much money $292 billion
is, that is, if you were to stack it in hundred dollar bills, it would stretch
198 miles, which is just about the round-trip distance from New York City
to Vanguard’s headquarters in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.

Index funds have picked up incredible momentum in the past few
years. Since the end of 2006, active investors have pulled $1.2 trillion from
active mutual funds and plowed $1.4 trillion into index funds.1 Vanguard
has been the biggest beneficiary of the tidal wave of change of investor
preference. The only mutually owned mutual fund structure in the world,
Vanguard had the largest sales ever by a fund company in 2014, in
2015, and again in 2016.2 But despite the ubiquity of index funds
today, it was not always this way. The idea that investors should settle for
“average” returns was once heresy and these funds were often referred to
as Bogle’s folly.

The effect that Jack Bogle has had on the mutual fund industry and on
all of finance cannot be overstated.…

“It Feels Apocalyptic” – A Letter From Zimbabwe, Where The Country Remains In Total Shutdown

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Zimbabwe is once again at the brink of economic collapse, making a mockery of President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s claim that the country is open for business.

As Bloomberg reports,  many shops and factories have shut their doors because of a lack of customers and those that continue to trade are open to haggling over prices to secure hard currency. At an appliance shop in the capital, Harare, a salesman whispers that a Whirlpool Corp. washing machine priced at about $5,000 if paid for electronically will sell for $1,500 in cash, while at a nearby electrical warehouse, a $600 invoice is whittled down to $145 for payment in dollar bills.

But, as OilPrice.com's Tsvetana Paraskova reports, Zimbabwe is on a three-day nationwide strike and protests are erupting in the streets after the government of the southern African country doubled fuel prices, making gasoline sold in Zimbabwe the most expensive gasoline in the world. 

Via Namibia Economist blog,

We are now in our third day of complete shutdown throughout the whole of Zimbabwe.

Banks are closed, schools are closed, roads are closed in and out of the main towns and transport systems have shut down.

There are no newspapers to be bought, the Internet has been shut down by the government and everything is at a complete standstill.

People are too afraid to move around as a result of the burning of vehicles by vigilante groups and the complete dearth of any updated information or warnings due to the total social media blackout. This means that no WhatsApp messages or photos can be sent, no one can access Facebook or Messenger, and the situation is very tense.

In some centres it almost feels apocalyptic. We have heard gunfire, and before the Internet was closed down, saw pictures of dead and wounded people. It is unclear how many people have died but before the media blackout, it was reported that there had been five deaths and more than 200 people had been arbitrarily arrested.

Elements of the police and military are also involved in ensuring that there is a complete shutdown. People in civilian dress armed…

Outspoken Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered that containers carrying trash from Canada should be shipped back to the country. It is the latest chapter in a disagreement over more than 100 containers of trash that were shipped to the Philippines between 2013 and 2014, illegally, by a Canadian company. 

Canada had previously agreed to take the trash back, but has been slow in making arrangements for its return. Duterte threatened to leave the trash in Canadian waters if Ottawa refuses to take it back, according to Salvador Panelo...

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.
