The Hedgetard is hereby calling a top in AAPL, NFLX, AMZN and the whole market in general, starting Monday. If I am right, I will make a career out of it like that babe from 1987 did. If I am wrong, well I buried the call in a thread few will read and fewer will remember. Take that Harry!

They [ice cap] really mailed it in this month...maybe too hung over from new years to discuss something that is relevant and not already in the news?  They should just not write on any given month if they can't do better than this.

Icecap management needs to work on their math.  If you have 7 people with 100 IQ, and 3 people with 90 IQ in a room, then 7 are above the average of the 10.

Not to be a complete asshole or anything, but if the average in the room is 100, and it is a normal distribution then the same amount would be below 100 as above 100.  Thus, 7 people could not be smarter than the average.

Regardless, with the dollar being devalued who can say the true 'value' of the stock market priced in yet to be devalued US dollars?

Sampling error?  Skewed distribution?  Math illiteracy?  The article is blocked here so I can't read the original but we need to have some remedial statistics here;)

you misunderstood, his hypothetical was 10 people in a room, 7 with IQ 100, and 3 with IQ 90. The average would be 97.


The assumption that all things follow a normal distribution is a fallacy.

70% of Canadians are fags, that's why it is called 'Canadia'.

LOL! Canadians are sitting on the 'worlds wealth' - I'd be careful what you say about Canada, the first State to leave the Union. There are now ONLY 50 STATES! They actually had to ammend the US Flag to show ONLY FIFTY stars! Count them - fifty!

Must really suck to know that the White House and much of Washington was burned to the ground by a giggle of Canadian homosexuals.

Good thing we were not transvestites or we would have gone on to rip Miami as well.

Good ol' MLIM.  I'm an FA.  I boogied soon after the BofA deal.  It's a lonely world right now being an advisor who's bearish on the market.

Everytime Fox News starts hammering on Liberals, Comcast 'has a problem' with the feed, here in SW FL.

Can we make it simple?

I own CTL.  Big dividend at 6.6%, and they've raised it every year for the past 30 years or something.

From article:

"Profit margins at their highest in 56 years..."

Since 1955...hmmm...would that be...since the post WWII boom?  Since Dwight D. Eisenhower's presidency and six years out from his departing speech?

No coincidence, that.

And lets not forget the US$ has fallen against the index basket since '55

The inflation built into the fiat system ensures you loose

Back then, a profit of $10million needs to be $79million just to break even on historic CPI.

Rule 72 levels everything

Real earnings grew 400% from 1921 to 1927.  They grew 200% from 1992-1997.
