    • "Hans" Parisis: Trump Trade Tariffs Are Slowly Taxing American Businesses
      The Federal Reserve's "Beige Book," with economic anecdotes in all the districts of the U.S., was published yesterday.

      Trade seems to be on the collective minds of American businesses. The word "tariff" appeared no less than 36 times in the Fed report.

      President Donald Trump's trade "taxes" are not overall especially popular with the U.S. business community since I believe the trade "taxes" are being passed on in the form of higher prices to U.S. companies and threaten U.S. jobs.

      For example, to quote only one mention, the report reads: "... Builders continued to note rising prices for construction materials as well as labor and noted concerns about a potential trade war. Contacts cited double-digit price hikes for lumber and drywall and expressed concern for steel and reinforced concrete..."

      The uncertainty created by the trade taxes was also emphasized. The economic cost of the trade taxes will always outweigh the economic benefit of the new tariffs.

    • Guggenheim investment chief sees recession, 40% plunge in stocks ahead
      First glance her designs seem capricious. But the discussion of anything is dominated with those ultra-prominent stars then endless consideration of detail in everyone else who are often just 'everyone else.' Doesn't imply they're lousy nor fabulous.

      Some of the most 'valued' scuplture is by that guy who makes bronze 'balloon dogs.' One can be very 'liberal' with license earned in the Arts. lol

      Soaring US Oil Exports to China Are Transforming Global Crude Game

      Bit by bit, the U.S. petroleum industry is turning world oil markets inside out.

      First, sharp drops in U.S. imports of crude oil eroded the biggest market that producers like OPEC had relied on for many years. Now, surging U.S. exports - largely banned by Washington until just two years ago - challenge the last region OPEC dominates: Asia.

    • Here's how much the stock market would have to drop to wipe out Donald Trump's stock rally
      https://www.cnbc.com/2018/02/06/heres-how-much-the-stock-market-would-have-to-drop-to-wipe-out-donald-trumps-stock-rally.html

      President Donald Trump has repeatedly touted the strong stock market performance since his election victory as proof of his success.

      Detractors may point to the Dow Jones industrial average's recent stumbles, but the benchmark index has much further to fall before Trump's postelection gains are gone.

      The Dow declined by 1,175 points, or down 4.6 percent on Monday.

      From its high on Jan. 26 at 26,616.71, the benchmark index has declined nearly 2,300 points or 8.5 percent through Monday's close at 24,345.75.

      Here's the growing BIG LIST of companies reacting to the tax cuts with bonuses, more pay and expansion leading directly to new jobs:

      U.S. Bank of America employees making up to $150,000 per year in total compensation - about 145,000 teammates - will receive a one-time bonus of $1,000 by year-end.

      PNC Financial Services will give $1,000 bonus to about 47,500 workers.

      New Braunfels-based Rush Enterprises of Texas is giving each of its 6,600 employees a $1,000 bonus - a total of $6.6 million. Chief Financial Officer Steven Keller said: "You've got a choice - we could've kept it and stuffed it in the company bank account or coffers, or we can share it with the people."

    • ITT: I explain why passive strategies like ETFs and index funds SUCK for investing in the tech sector
      OK, so overall I like index funds and ETFs but specifically for the tech sector... bad fucking idea.

      That's because they're largely market cap weighted so they're heavily invested in the giants of today. Works fine in most sectors but tech is too fast moving and volatile for that crap. The winners of yesterday are tomorrow's shit sandwich. You have to look past market cap and see if a company is currently growing, do they have hot technology or are they yesterdays slowly stagnating dog shit? Most tech companies never reinvent themselves and once they start to slide it's all downhill.

      If you had a market cap weighted tech index fund instead of an actively managed portfolio the last few years you would have been holding fucking losers like Dell, IBM, H-P, Yahoo, etc. Hell, you'd STILL be holding 'em now.

      So the answer can be as simple as looking at ALL the tech stocks that are on the MSCI All Country World Information Technology (ACWI IT) Index and simply tossing out any that aren't growing and/or don't have a piece of whatever the current hot trends are. That's it, simply toss out the losers and you'll beat the fuck out of the index funds who are investing blindly based only on market cap.

      Sadly for lazy poorfags, this approach takes a little work. You need to look at quarterly results, you need to follow the news in the trade rags, you need to rebalance your portfolio at least monthly.

    • The Federal Reserve's "Beige Book," with economic anecdotes in all the districts of the U.S., was published yesterday.

      Trade seems to be on the collective minds of American businesses. The word "tariff" appeared no less than 36 times in the Fed report.

      President Donald Trump's trade "taxes" are not overall especially popular with the U.S. business community since I believe the trade "taxes" are being passed on in the form of higher prices to U.S. companies and threaten U.S. jobs.
      For example, to quote only one mention, the report reads: "... Builders continued to note rising prices for construction materials as well as labor and noted concerns about a potential trade war. Contacts cited double-digit price hikes for lumber and drywall and expressed concern for steel and reinforced concrete..."
      The uncertainty created by the trade taxes was also emphasized. The economic cost of the trade taxes will always outweigh the economic benefit of the new tariffs.

      Aside from the increase in taxes, the tone of the report was positive, and the economic outlook remains generally strong.
      From the European Union (EU), we got the release of current account data for 2017.
      In 2017, the United States was the EU's largest partner for exports (20 percent of total extra-EU exports) and second largest for EU imports (14 percent of total extra-EU imports), after China (20 percent). The EU trade surplus with the United States has reached 120 billion euro or about $149 billion in 2017. The most exported product from the EU to the United States was "motor cars and vehicles", and the most imported product from the United States was "aircraft and associated equipment."
      Normally this is something international investors would not pay very much attention to, but the renewed focus on trade and mercantilism does create some risk around this at the moment.

      In the meantime, Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe have, after two days of talks at Trump's resort in Florida, agreed to begin talks on what they called "free, fair and reciprocal" trade.
      At the joint news conference, Trump said he and Abe "have agreed to intensify our trade and investment consultations." When asked for clarification if this meant a bilateral trade deal, both leaders were coy.
      Trump said that the U.S. is committed to free, fair and reciprocal - very important word - trade, and America is committed to pursuing a bilateral trading relationship that "benefits both of our great countries." Trump said he was working to reduce the $56.1 billion U.S. trade deficit with Japan by pushing to remove barriers to U.S. exports.

    • The Trump Meltdown is coming:

      Guggenheim's head of investing sees a tough road ahead for the market and economy, with a sharp recession and a 40 percent decline in stocks looming.

      Scott Minerd, who warned clients in a recent note that the market is on a "collision course with disaster," expects the worst of the damage to start in late 2019 and into 2020.

      Along with the decline in equities, a rise in corporate bond defaults is likely as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates and companies struggle to pay off record debt levels.

      "For the next year ... equities will probably continue to go up as we have all these stock buybacks and free cash flow," Minerd told CNBC's Brian Sullivan in a "Worldwide Exchange" interview. "Ultimately, when the chickens come home to roost and we have a recession, we're going to see a lot of pressure on equities especially as defaults rise, and I think once we reach a peak that we'll probably see a 40 percent retracement in equities."

    • I just wanted to thank you. Excellent, succinct documentary on the system that primarily benefits NGOs and celebrities, aid that acts as branding for corporations while stripping entire sectors from local economies. I've had suspicions about NGOs, but this offered thoughtful representations and even a network analysis of how the system has gone wrong.

    • The number of food stamp dependent Americans hit a six-year low in President Donald Trump's first year in office, reflecting an improving economy and falling unemployment, according to a U.S. Agriculture Department (USDA) report.

      An average of 42.2 million Americans participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program in 2017, which is an 11 percent decrease from 2013, when a record number of people used food stamps, according to USDA.

      "Federal spending for SNAP totaled $68.0 billion or 4 percent less than in the previous fiscal year," USDA reported. "This was also 15 percent less than the historical high of $79.9 billion set in FY 2013."

      It's the fourth year in a row SNAP participation fell. Previously, the number of people on food stamps grew for 12 years. About 13 percent of Americans used food stamps in 2017. That's well above pre-recession levels.

      Better economic conditions reduce food stamp participation, but some states' welfare reforms have also played a role.
