    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

Hi Everyone--


Last week was a record breaking week for the team at ZH as they kept posting article after article to keep us current. Have you considered that the ZH team needs to eat?


I'll spare the Sally Struthers routine, but PLEASE donate to ZH. Whether its just enough to buy the Tylers a beer, or something larger, please do your part.


Parting with $20 won't kill you and you will certainly be rewarded for your efforts by getting all the news that the MSM doesnt have the balls to print.


So don't think--Just Do IT. Support your Fight Club. Right now!

Your order is complete! Your order number is 1508.

Done! Please keep up the great work Tyler, Marla, et al.

Have you considered that the ZH team needs to eat?

Look, we tried to tell them that gold was not a source of nutrition, okay?

Done, and a big thanks to the Tylers.

done. 20$ were 14.85€. Today/here in D this would buy 1 pizza/pasta + drink or 1/2oz silver coin incl. VAT. May one of the Tylers  enjoy either one.

You should post this in every every article for a couple of days, so everyone gets reminded. I never even saw the "donate" button before you told us.

I kept wondering if a horrible economy was ever going to start having economic effects on business.

Food and energy aren't factored into the CPI, all is well; move along.

Donation submitted. How about an email every 6 months or so reminding us to consider contributing to ZeroHedge?

Higher energy prices, just-in-time supply disruptions, the end of Bernanke's money circus -- it doesn't look good for great earnings.

If I remember correctly, NIKE set off the findings of the last collapse in 2008.

Deja Vu again it seems.

I hope you are right because I really am tired of this circus called a market.

Indeed, just found it:

The provider of sporting apparel realised a 46% drop in earnings to $243.8 million or 50 cents from $463.8 million or 92 cents a share in 2008 as revenues dropped 2% to $4.4 billion and a $241 million after-tax, non-cash charge.

This was the beginning of the collapse..............reported much later................

In looking at those graphs the future is obvious. Reversion to the mean is a bitch!

Excellent posting all. Yes, yesterday was my latest donation of $100.00. I don't care if you can only donate $1.00. It all counts. This site is not always right, but it is Always Truthful. Zero Hedge is here to make us think and Make our Own Decisions with information that is not disseminated in the MSM.

Have you also noticed, as far as I can tell, not once, not once has Tyler or staff asked US for money. For me, the past two years, the returns on my investment here cannot be calculated.

Agree or disagree, that is just fine. But donate to keep the blood flowing here at...Zero Hedge. I only know of 5 or 6 sites that keep us truthfully informed. Now more than ever, as things continue to deteriorate on our planet, the spin will get ever louder from our govt. MSM and those honest Wall Street professionals.

This site is Not an option for me.

The P/E denominator is subject to radioactive decay. Half-life two years tops.

This story makes real sense--provided the Fed wasn't in the market everyday juicing the ES.

The fed can always buy a warehouse and start buying iPads, Nike Shoes and requesting shipping from fedex. When it comes to unload them, the physical item will still be worth something.

Anything is worth more than the all the crummy mortgages and other MBS crap they've already purchased.

Markets will NOT crash until the banksters are in jail; why they are NOT in jail is that the market has not yet crashed. Their only protection against a massive roundup of criminal elites is a "juiced E/S"...

Zimbabwe is the new normal.

Pretty amateurish analysis looking at nominal dividend yields instead of e.g. the Dividend Yield vs Corporate BBB Bond spread.

E.g. if dividend yields are 6% does that make equities attractive, if investment grade corporate bonds pay 16% at the same time?

Nominal dividend yields are worthless by themselves as an indicator.
