    get stock bonuses and sell them, the Managers get good bucks. No new sales,
    no new products, no exports, but your own buybacks can keep the stock up.
    Smoke and mirrors are not an illusion, but everything else is suspect.
    QE money is being used to buy back stocks. It is the expectation of short termers that the expectation of long-termers for increased dividends down the road with fewer shares outstanding will cause them to pay more for the stock, which they, in term, pay more for...or something like that--I just ate a banana nut english muffin so the blood is rushing from my brain to the tummy.

I will gladly reimburse you when the GAO realizes in 2024 I was not billed, which will be followed by a case that makes it all the way to the SCOTUS and back a couple times before I pay pennies on the dollar.

    Your talents are wasted. Reasoning of that nature can get you a management position in nearly any Military procurement agency. I don't even think you will be required to pay the pennies. If you are Corporate, the Courts will be required to pay you to manage affairs of bankruptcy, much like the Nuclear Industry final disposal plan. If I were you , I would begin searching for an island tax haven for future security. You might check with Darth Cheney to see if any are available or used up as amortized assets of USA Corporations.

    I tried, but Dick said we would have to go out and hunt our own chixens together first, and I like to keep the face birdshot free, so I had no choice but to decline.

    Blue + yellow = green. You have to remove blue to get back to yellow.

    I have said it before, no way the Fed raises rates this year by anything more then a token amount (unless the Fed starts up QE again).

    The U.S. economy is NOT strong or even remotely so. It's weak and getting weaker without the government teat to prop it up.
    Yea because the stock market never gets oversold and always indicates the health of the US economy when it goes down. In other news....

    Still, the economy remains on firmer ground. In a separate report, the Conference Board said its consumer sentiment index jumped to 102.9 in January, the highest reading since August 2007, from 93.1 in December.

    "It supports our view of continued strong job growth into the New Year and that rising wealth levels and lower gas prices are boosting household purchasing power," said John Ryding, chief economist at RDQ Economics in New York.

    In another report, the Commerce Department said new home sales jumped in December to their highest level since 2008.

    I'm from the gov't and we have all things figured out. It's like the suit business. You've got
    one white suit in the showroom and when a customer asks for a green suit, you turn on a green
    light and adjust the mirrors. We also have blue ights and red lights. The smoke generators are
    only used when a customer seems pre-occupied with reality.

    Ummm...I never said it was.

    I simply was bored and found the opening interesting.

    Interesting how touchy people get...I was not even remotely thinking that this DOW opening had any long term significance. It's just another brick in the wall.
