    feh….What’s 3.5% between friends.

    Sucker rally ends tomorrow. But tomorrow will look like a slapfight at band camp between a clarinet player and the third trombone. Knocking each other’s faggy hats off, glasses go flying, and shit like that. Monday will be like Apocalypto. Dead headless bodies being thrown off pyramids.

    I like it very much.. I would also like some heaving headless bodies being thrown off the pyramids, electrical impulses still coursing through the CNS.

    No no no Sia, for the love of nature – nobody’s talking about Hong Kong which is rock solid and a great market that will go up no matter what happens in China. We are talking about the CSI 300, off 2.34%.. Shenzen A’s, off 4.07%. They are just having problems moving their brokers around because they are hanging out at train stations.. dummies.

    European shares moved higher on Friday morning, as bid speculation gave a boost to banks and miners ahead of some key U.S. jobs data out later in the session.

    What more could you want.

    I want the judge to dismiss all charges, and I would like to see GBP/JPY hit 213.50 this afternoon.

    Thanks Sia. I will leave milk and cookies for you on the kitchen table.

    PGM metals are going crazy. Still not interested in PAL and SWC? Load up these two and you can take the rest of the year off. By the year end you should have a double or triple.

    Palladium is looking to break $400 and never look back. Do you what’s going on in South Africa?

    “So the S&P 500 finished January down an incredible 6.1%.

    But guess what? Homebuilders, retailers, and even financials are UP for the year. Say what, you say? Yes, believe it.

    2007’s dogs are already 2008’s darlings, so far. And this even as many former high-flying tech, solar, and agricultural stocks have struggled. Check it out:

    Top performing stocks of the year to-date so far: homebuilders: WCI Communities (WCI) up 60.1%, Pulte Homes (PHM) up 55.1%; bank: Washington Mutual (WM) up 46.0%; and restaurant: Ihop Corp (IHP) up 45.5%

    Homebuilders ETF, XHB: Up 8.1% year-to-date

    Retailers ETF, RTH: Up 1.9% year-to-date
    Financial Sector ETF, XLF: Up 0.7%

    In particular, XHB has finally broken a steep, persistent, and long downtrend that started around May or June of last year.

    Futures shooting higher on merger news.
    It proves once again that when all is doom and gloom, when even The Fly turns bearish, the market goes higher.
    Time to get out of short positions.

    Hold on there Dr. T. Here comes the only data point that matters (just need someone that isn’t going to revise 50% every fucking month). Employment showing that people would rather stay at home and watch Oprah. First decline in 4 years? and the futures are staying somewhat green? WTF. I know the market is forward looking, but how in God’s name can they possibly be looking beyond something that has just started? Full disclosure – I am long UWM and ROM. With that said, I scratch my head in disbelief. Just fucking amazing.

    Only thing getting the HH right now is payrolls. This is a HUGE downward surprise, and if the market ignores this data and shoots up anyway, then bears are to be immolated.

    Prior month, December payrolls were revised higher to a gain of 82K from 18K, helping to balance prior expectations a bit.

    Exxon-Mobil (XOM) and Chevron (CVX) also just reported a blow-out quarters with their respective stocks gapping substantially higher.

    Could be a short term top off this MSFT/YHOO news.

    I’ll look to fade this a bit.

    Banks, retail, homeys indices up over 20% in 10 days . Need a breather, at least.

    Alvari40-Half dreaming since I have heard this talked about for several months now. It seems to me that if SBUX can’t turnaround in the next six months (March I believe is their reorg plan) that it might make sense. The SBUX yuppies might not like it though.

    McD couldn’t buy SBUX.

    SBUX’s entire marketing strategy is built on “cache.”

    No “cache” to Ronald Freaking McDonald and the Hamburglar.

    TraderCaddy,

    I banked on the fact that that coffee drinking homo (not thhere is anything wrong with being a coffee drinking homo) was going to disclose his plans this week. Now that he is waiting until March, maybe the #1 item on the reorg plan is to be purchased by McDs. That alone, is worth dreaming a bit more about this one and holding half my position until March. Would be like Rupert buying the Journal.

    Chipotle has much more “cache” [sic] than a McD’s in my opinion. That’s proof to me that McD could own SBX and still run it with “cachet”.

    Workers saw wages grow at a slower pace last month.

    Average hourly earnings for jobholders rose to $17.75 in January, a 0.2 percent increase from the previous month. Economists were predicting a slightly larger gain of 0.3 percent. Over the last 12 months wages went up by 3.7 percent. With high energy and food prices, though, workers may feel squeezed and feel like their paychecks aren’t stretching that far.

    Holy shit is that all they make. My old man was making that back in 1979!!!!

    Shedder,

    Interesting to note that the decline in ’03 that is referenced in the writeup was also a huge surprise. Unemployment in ’03 was much higher than it is today (over 6%). What happened to the stock market over the next 12 months after the August ’03 report came out? I’m just sayin. Market is always forward looking.

    ez,

    good catch at noticing that… compare wage growth (or lack thereof), real inflation and the financial fiasco of the housing bubble (debt wealth) and you can pretty much guess how strong the consumer REALLY is today…
