    So sorry, Sahib is busy serving Benjamin Bernanke tea.

    I invited Mr. Bilderberg, but he said he was busy “deploying famine in Burma” or some shit.

    bernanke plays like he is too cool, but watch, he’ll show up late begging to get in. For cryin out loud, he rolls with a bunch of pricks in wrinkled mervins suits. Having them around will make becky and erin easier to snag.

    According to your link TG, we have “7,654” vs. The Street.com’s 2.918m.

    Solve for X, the implied mkt cap of ibank using the same ratio.

    TSCM: mkt cap: 341 m daily readers: 2.918m
    iBank: mkt cap: X daily readers: 7.65k

    We still win.

    I thought KC and “Old Man Trader” were the same guy?

    If we can invite characters, let me know.

    I’ll give the demigod a jingle.

    One problem — he’s four million, (but doesn’t look a day over 38).

    Hey Bearshits–

    Where’s that recession you’ve been wetting your pants over?

    Durable goods number belies some of the recent hyperbole, no?

    Certainly doesn’t appear to be portending impending doom, at least not any time in the immediate future. Looks like time to bank serious coin if Scottrade can get their shit together.

    Odd, yet a bit instructive, no?

    (Scottrade down this morning?????!!!!!)

    Keep an eye on BOOM. They released an 8k for their acquisition of a privately held company, and it looks better than expected. Let’s see if it catches a bid.

    Jake – are you shorticus?

    Fly, i’ll be sure to put the flyers under every windshield wiper in my neighborhood.

    this is pulled from the merrill’s strategist….thought these were some interesting stats.

    This is a classic bear market rally
    The short interest on the Big Board soared more than 7% in the first two weeks of
    January and the market got washed out in short order. But we seem to recall that
    in the 2000-02 bear market, when the S&P 500 collapsed almost 50%, we saw no
    fewer than 16 rallies of at least 5% – and they lasted 30 days on average (we had
    35 rallies of 5% or more in the Nasdaq during this interval and the index still
    managed to slide almost 80%).

    Surely the demigod can morph his appearance to appear whatever age he pleases.

    If not, he can always rain thunder and lightning down upon us, so I’m sure the bouncers would let him in…

    ISRG getting the homohammer today, just as I had mentioned in a comment yesterday.

    One of these days I may post my short ideas, which are usually quite profitable, if I can get a free pass to the one millionth page view celebration.

    Good call on ISRG.

    Been short on it for about a week, since $270…it has been in the $270-$280 since then, so maybe today is the breakdown finally…

    Damn it. Call it palladium party! Platinum party will be reserved for later. The ultimate high record will be called rhodium party.

    Or called SWC and PAL party.
