Some Afternoon Confusion

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Can someone please explain to us what the nature of this post is: “Zero Edge” — Rebutting Faulty Tax Analysis" which appeared today on Barry Rithholtz' blog. We are confused by the whole premise of some guy called called Matt Trivisonno taking offense at our unadjusted and unredacted tax withholdings data, and saying we are misrepresenting something or another. What is more confusing to us is that we have never read anything by Mr. Trivisonno before. Matt, not sure what the problem is - we are merely showing that the Treasury is collecting less money in taxes than it did in 2009. And as for contrarians, we were focusing on the puppets of the government such as Steve Liesman who were making these false claims (at least on an actual cash flow basis - I am sure your adjustments will lead you to whatever conclusion you desire). Period. I am happy to share the primary data with you or anybody else: it is all public and anybody can grab the data directly from the Treasury. If Matt wishes to challenge what the raw data is showing, we are happy to open a forum to him on Zero Hedge. We will post an update on the ongoing deterioration in gross tax withholdings (actual, unrecasted, unmodified or seasonally adjusted) shortly.

That said, we are very amused by Barry's distinction between his blog and ZH. To wit:

ZH is a blogger who covers Wall Street.
I am a Wall Streeter who blogs.

Barry is too kind, although since we cover Wall Street, and Barry considers himself a "Wall Streeter", does that mean we should be covering him as well? Thanks for the heads up! We are lucky that Barry points out what Wall Streeters do: "While he was typing, I was speaking to our clients, doing a Tech
Ticker interview for Yahoo, a radio interview, and then making
arrangements with NBC World News Tonite." So that's what Wall Streeting is? We will make a note.

Phuck Barry Ritholtz and the shetland pony he rode in on.  I used to be a TBP regular.  Barry pissed me and most of his other regulars off in Fall of 2009.  The seminal event was that he declined an invite to speak before Congress because he didn't want to waste his time.  Well, a lot of fine people gave their blood, sweat and tears so that Mr. Ritholtz could enjoy his time.  Thank God ZH came along.

Amusingly both Rithholtz and Trivisonno take a pretty nice beating in the comment section of his own blog.  Trivisonno ends up losing all credibility.  Towards the end of the blog one reader sums it up pretty well...

"As for Matt – I hope you are in your teens or early twenties. Your hyper defensive and belittling responses are unseemly for anyone who has outgrown the “I’m always right” age."

Ritholtz used to do good work.  Then he got clients and stopped doing good work.  I quit reading when all his posts started being about how many different times a day you could see his fat face on TV, or what music he listens to, or him pumping his book, or how great his new proprietary software is and why you should give him your money, or his "open threads" where he asks the internet to do all his work for him.  He sucks now.

Conspiracy theory blog? Just because Tyler and Co. are nice enough to let the moonbats post here does not make it a conspiracy blog, hell, I let some post at my site because they play by the rules also. But this is no conspiracy blog. Often times FACTS are displayed here along with some very prescient market analysis that many others refuse to address.

Tyler's place kicks ass.

I think I see what see what Trivisonno is trying to graph, but, this being a YOY comparison, if you stack the first two bars in his graph, both under the zero line, then compare with the third bar, which is above the zero line, the difference is a picture of how much lower the tax receipts are YTD compared to 2009.

He's trying to point out that there appears to be an overall improvement because the last four weeks show a 2.97% YOY improvement over the period that included the crash of March 2009.

Disagree with his conclusions, though... for an overall improvement, you need to stick to YTD YOY comparison, not slice it up for convenience.

A while back I made a comment on TBP that Mish ripped apart one of his posts.  BR didn't like that and ever since none of my comments are accepted. 

I still go there to read some of his posts, but its less frequently.  Today he had a post saying that bloggers have it ass backwards when they claim people who are not paying their mortgage are contributing to the uptick in consumer spending.

This is a ridiculous comment by BR, how can 7.8 million people not paying their mortgage not be spending at least some of this money on retail purchases?

What are they doing with this money?  Its surely isn't be saved based on the savings rate though some of it is being used to pay down debt.  So that doesn't leave many other options for this money to go.

I've also noticed he seems to be quite arrogant and self righteous of late.  I think his bottom call has gone to his head.

Hi, buddy.

I finally capitulated, this time for sure. There's too much self promotion going on over there. I'm tired of trying to educate him. He can now go back to pondering magic charts without fear of ridicule, although I have to admit it was loads of fun pointing out the weaknesses in so many of his arguments. Usually it was easier than catching fish out of a barrel. I wonder if his car has a bumper sticker "Support you local financial advisor" or "10% to God; 2 and 20 to His Assistant"?

On TBP, BR was the perfect straight man. He would lob soft balls that were so easy to hit out of the park, it became addictive to write snarky crap over there. Oh well, everyone has to grow up eventually so now I plan associate with the adults. It's not as much fun as TD runs a much higher quality joint and my shtick doesn't work here. 

PS: I think I recall several bottom calls, his memory is a little selective.

DH-

the way BR is shaping up in my mind is more of a pundit-  he definitely does put some stuff out there that beg for rebuttal-

but maybe that's his shtick-  he hasn't banned me yet-  so he has that going for him-

the dude can be pretty damn funny though- that's always a plus in my book- and he lets you know what he thinks w/o the sugar coating- which is also a plus-

and he is willing to take criticism- which means- although a big ego- it is not fragile

Not to start a financial blog war, Barry has some good pieces and I check his site maybe once a week, but he is nothing but pompous self-promotion of his book.  He's the kind of guy that I'd like to have behind me in his fancy car when I'm driving my '85 Ford Dually 1/2 ton pickup and spray gravel all over him.  But alas, I don't have a '85 Ford Dually....  while currently Google is my homepage, Zero Hedge is the link I click on first every time I sit down at the computer.  They have opened my eyes and proven to me things that I thought were happening, but as an American steeped in Patriotism, I could not believe that one American would do to another.  they have proven to me that it is up to me to watch my own A$$ and trust no one when it comes to finances.  Thank you ZH!!!!

The use of ZeroHedge as a spring board because of the added visits post Goldman Civil Fraud (look over there why we fuck you over here case)... they want readers... and ZH has readers... best way to stir the pot and drum up some visits... is our Boy always right, nope... but is our boy true to who he really is, absofuckinglutely.

 

Keep up the great work... the people who are trying to up thier readership are not going to be the problem.. ZH will be under attack in court, the expense of an ongoing court battle will drain resources and scare off sources of information.. that’s the end game that Goldman or the like has yet to exercise.

 

I don't expect perfection out of someone who posts 20 or 30 articles a day... I expect them to care and to try to be honest... which I get from Zero Hedge daily.

 

As for the end of the world bullshit on the other site... well the markets are a house of cards… Which is true and if the house of cards where to suffer a stiff wind they would fall... that is the truth, not bullshit. So we can assume that thru this other sites ignorance or outright manipulation of the truth that they would promote that all is well... and that Wall Street and their practices are founded on good business models?! Or this other site has never ventured beyond some low hanging fruit type of position…

 

I think that if people knew the truth maybe they would not get screwed as much or as often… I think that if Wall Street keeps up this shell game that everyone will suffer more than needed… if not this go round than maybe the next. But doom and gloom? Or the unreasonable assumption that algo’s are not keeping this jobless recovery in check is either as I mentioned before an outright lie… which could be perceived as keeping the ugly truth away from the children or a real belief that the other site’s contributor see’s as correct from their lowly vantage point.

 

No jobs but lots of profits… on paper. Fact! Not doom and gloom. Where is the liquidity coming from fore said profits?

The war on the negative perception or the war on public perception being herded into the land of positive-ville is ongoing.. the people who speak the truth will be bashed and ground to dust, I don’t give ZH a solid year before the law suits start coming until such time it is impossible for ZH to keep the lights on. That is not a doom and gloom statement, it is the logical conclusion of stopping the successful spread of real… albeit not positive information.

 

I want the stock market at 20k tomorrow… but with sound fundamentals in place… not a 0% Fed Window and a perma-fix of the Tax Payer being the lender of last resort to any and all deals that do not earn monies for the AAA Rated Corps… how long until bonus craze destroys the Country, because it almost did… and NOTHING has changed… except more monies, cheaper monies and less competition for the politically connected with the ubber effective lobby… ala’ Goldman and AAA rated new banking friends.

 

Doom and Gloom do not always mean wrong… doom and gloom is the issue or war drum beat here all day, every day... more so than the end is near, as pontificated about buy the others (pun intended). People here are worried and want the facts out... not the world to end... in most cases... doom and gloom are fact... the end is near is a only a vocal few.

  

I hope that this does not backfire for those sites seeking new clicks or readers… I hope that they are not found out to be lackeys who would further the whole… the world is great… look rainbows and unicorns! The Fed is not printing out of thin air… no worries… unemployment is at 15% to 20% and the stock market loves it… Buy! Buy!! BUY!!! Bullshit…

 

Keep up the great work here and I hope you get to continue for a long time Tyler.

 

Sincerely, JW

doom and gloom true, but TD uses almost always publicly available information (such as the publicly available treas. figures at the center of this controversy), he is not picking stocks, he is posting commentary, he is not involved in per se slander or libel, is not encouraging any violence.

the Squid is quite litigous and had they had ANY even slighlty legitimate cause of action they would have already sprung.  all they can do is block him at their office and talk trash.

for the foreseeable future TD is safe.  but who knows, in what ever "reform" is passed, maybe it will become a "threat to national security" to spook the market, even if it is with the truth.

i am one of the most cynical, pessimistic mofos you will ever meet, but TD will be around for awhile.

as one of those 'vocal few', 'the end' does not necessarily imply 'THE END', but rather the potential for a new beginning.  as to how large or small those ends & beginnings are is up for the universe to decide.  i only hope for the transition (in whatever form it takes) to incur physical suffering for the least amount of human beings on this planet as possible.

Wall Street Work Force Falls to 16-Year Low

NEW YORK - Wall Street shed 1,200 jobs in March, in a third straight month of job cuts that pushed employment in New York City's key banking and investment industry to its lowest level since October 1993, the New York state Department of Labor said on Thursday.

Thanks for posting those links JW...

"What exactly Matt is the "conspiracy-theory" posted here verse the fact(s)?"

Keep in Mind "Conspiracy Theory" is an Ad Hominem Attack
In the current US societal usage, "Conspiracy Theory" is used to discredit a dissenter without addressing the facts of the dissenter's arguments. It is a CLASSIC ad hominem attack.

We attended the presentation of an academic paper in linguistics that pointed out conspiracy theories are popular among the US public at large because the government itself engages in conspiracy theory as propaganda all the time.

Cases he sited:
1. The whole Red Scare of the 1950s.
2. Gulf of Tonkin... proven false.
3. Reagan's "Sandinistas taking over Central America."
4. Al Qaeda did 9-11 within 4 hours of the attacks with no evidence.
(Or you had the intelligence to know it was Al Qaeda in 4 horus but nobody had any warnings or could have seen the use of planes as weapons? Which is it Schrub, Union Oil Condi, Dickhead Cheney?)
5. Saddam linked to Al Qaeda and has WMD... proven false.
6. Now Iran is the nuclear threat of the ages...

US Government... the original Conspiracy Theorists?

 I am going to say this once so everyone at Zero Hedge understands it clearly.

Zero Hedge is not only emerging as a  power player as of this date but has officially emerged as one of the most important and influential financial news sources and perhaps the only true hybrid investigative journalists/ analysts in the markets in the past 20 years. This makes you not only dangerous but a mark and from here on out increasing scrutiny will attempt to discredit everything which is published  in order to defrock this great site of the one advantage is possesses over all others and this is integrity.

 They have near unlimited financial resources at their disposal and an accumulation of media and governmental/ private connections at their disposal where as Tyler and crew have Delta ads, donations and a website that cannot even support the traffic because of it's popularity. They need to cripple you now before their worst nightmare is materialized and 5 years from now after we can all flip on ZeroHedge News network.

Be proud. You have become the Winchells and the entity the SEC should be on a fractional budget and you would make the founders of this nation proud who were once reliant upon pamphlets to incite a revolution that transformed the world and this nation into a beacon for the disenfranchised who had no liberties. I am a poor student without much money but I will donate what I can to this cause because it is the best investment I could ever make for my nations future.

That guy is a fucking moron, seriously. The tax credit is like $23/week as in twenty three dollars and zero sense per week. That means nothing. I also take issue with him not using net numbers since here we all talk about the national debt and such. If the government takes in less money it is a major problem. I am also sure this asshat thinks temporary jobs are really a good thing. I would love to talk with him, but I like my IQ to remain above 150. He misses the point, calls everyone here crazy and charges a fee for free fucking data!?? I mean WTF.

The worst part is he could never admit that he is wrong because he charges a fee for his work and, from what I could tell, his ego clouds his mind. I bet he would argue the sky is pink just for the hell of it.

 

But, he WAS short the market today, wow, he must have been the only one... Oh wait, so was I!! I have never heard of this guy and I am sure I will never hear of him again.

I read Barry just about the time he started blogging.  He was awesome back then.  Actually Barry might have been the original zerohedge (lite).  It all went south (for me) when he did the blog redesign.  The constant posts about the look and feel of the new blog started to strike me as a child seeking attention.  Next came the fusion iq launch followed by the Kudlow appearances.  The last straw was when he got black balled from Kudlows show and would post "poor me" posts about it.  He's an attention seeker.

zerohedge is the undisputed champ.

Now, how is this gentleman any different than Mr. Kramer. A few days ago he mentioned that during an interview with Forbes he recommended the following:

The first group is what I call our bailout bet. And that’s all the companies that I think are horrible companies and I hate their managements. They’re terrible corporations, and we should throw them into the ocean. But we had to hold our nose and buy them, because they were going higher. And that’s Citigroup, Bank of America, and Fannie Mae.

http://www.ritholtz.com/blog/2010/04/buy-what-you-hate/

And they call themselves sophisticaed investors who manage money for clients. If this isn't gambling, then what is? And then when folks on his website took him to task for recommending such crap, he claimed that this was spewed out by his quant model.

BR: I sure as hell didn’t pick these because I like them — they came OUT OF THE QUANT system.

If I didn’t own them because I didnt like them, but IQ had them on a new buy, I’d be a hypocrite!

So, what I am telling everyone is this: I developed an algorithm that searches for crap and when it spews out crap, I say it isn't my fault, it is the system that is telling me to buy crap. But, I wrote the code to look for crap, hence the system is spitting out crap. Has anybody not heard of "crap in crap out". And they are money managers?

I would much rather have my capital in a savings account yeilding zilch, then hand it over to folks such as Mr. Ritholz to manage. They get lucky - I don't know how; anybody's guess - and pass it off as brains. Good luck to Mr. Ritholz and his clients. They deserve each other.

I couldn't resist.  Had to check it out.  Man, his traffic and commentors are pitiful now.  I noticed that call me ahab and Andy T were either ambivalent or outright disapproving.  Ritholtz has seen his best days.  If he's making money, he should enjoy it.  He had something greater than money - street cred - and he blew it.  The funny thing about money is, well, it really can't buy you everything.  Especially when it's worthless.  Let's see what it does for Fabrice Tourre.

Who the fuck is Matt Trivisonno? Well I searched for him--http://www.trivisonno.com/

He wrote this tripe:

On May 4, 2009, I wrote a post titled “Super Fly” where I stated that I would no longer be reading Zero Edge. At the time, most of my readers were bearish, so I was trying to lead by example. I hope you people got the message. Did Zero Edge steer you wrong over the past year? Ha! Not only did they steer you wrong, but they steered you right over the lip of an active volcano and down into the lava! You’re just a skeleton now!

As we all know, Tyler has never been a financial advisor of any kind or recommended a trade of any kind. He has insisted this market is dangerous and to STOP TRADING many times.

This douchebag deserves the same treatment you gave Goldman this morning, TY. Block his IP so he can come up with an original thought that isn't blatantly false. And find his home IP too. Block the asshole.

In the meantime, it was a great day at ZH, traffic was enormous and you stayed up most of the time.

I think what he really means is that the market is rigged, and a little guys trading on the laptop don't stand a slightest chance to win. Obviously if your game is to scrap a 25 c here and there, you might win a few times. but the market can bury you as quickly as a flip of coin. 

 

Think for a moment, why Tyler doing this?  he does not even want his real name out there. My guess is that He saw all the games played by those greedy bastards using government backstop to benefit their own, while all the joe sixpacks got fucked without even knowing their assholes bleeding.  he just wants to expose those dirty tricks to the sunlight.

Since it is a known fact that the majority of jobs created during 1st qtr 2010 were government jobs, even if BR is correct, it just means that the Feds are taking money out of their right pocket and putting it into their left. Any increase in FWT was the result of "stimulus", and the bottom line on stimulus is that a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit produced a 200 billion bump in GDP. I fail to see how this is evidence of economic improvement, but then I'm just a doom and gloomer.

The reason ZH has become such a target is not so much its success in hitting almost every significant story over the last year, nor even because of its rapid growth.  What riles people like BR and the clowns at CNBC is that ZH still chooses to remain anonymous.  Egoists not only get jealous at others' success, but they also cannot fathom why anyone with a chance to take the stage and receive the adulation of the masses does not do so.  It confuses them and attacks their world view, because for them it is all about "being somebody". To see that not everyone wants what they think is the ultimate goal of any living being forces them to question their own validity and life choices.  Behind every publicity seeking buffoon is a weak and insecure little man (or woman) in need of constant reinforcement.  I give you Cramer as a textbook example.

Tyler et al are "somebodies" without being somebodies.  They won't be approached for autographs on the street, cannot get the best table in a restaurant, and are not sought out to appear in the halls of power and enlighten others of their kind (at least not publicly).

You are the enemy because you invalidate them and all they hold dear.

Keep up the great work!

This guy is trying to start a interblog flamewar to boost his authority ratings.  In the future if you are not wanting to play in to this scenario, DO NOT POST LINKS TO HIS BLOG!  That is the ONLY thing he wants SPECIFICALLY from you.  Secondary objectives are to get other blogs on the long tail creating an echo chamber that link back to your original piece, his rebuttal that links to you, and your rebuttal to his rebuttal that contains a link to him.  This is standard guerilla SEO marketing technique.   It's done to game the technorati.com and other services that rank blog authority, and also boosts his SEO standings to bring him to the top of the search engine results.

On that note, the guy is having a 50% off sale for his subscription data analysis services until April 18th!  Hurry now!

On the other note, he is correct, different number of workdays in 2009 and 2010 in 1Q, and ARRA altered the withholdings law, therefor the withholding data the Treasury releases.

Again, in the future, if you are in the mood, edit your existing post with a mea culpa WITHOUT acknowledging the website when people are trying to boost authority ratings in the blogosphere.  You can still acknowledge the person, just do not hotlink if they are bellicose about it.

cheers,

what i like about zero hedge is the evolution of the contributors ability and  the hard work that goes into researching the hypocrisy. Tyler makes mistakes, he or she is not a god, but the drive to at least find the news and have an opinion then learn and grow is there for all to see. The contributors, the comments and the (sometimes light touch, sometimes very deep dive technical) wit intelligence and repartee make this forum one of the best to help me think filter and develop my understanding of where the future may lie. Zero Hedge plays a key role in the evolution of the media to "on demand" debate (including entertainment) and not editorial incompetence. News editors can set the scene, but we take and develop the story, not the editors. (First casualty in war and all that). Zero Hedge has spotted that TV hinders the release of news and fails to allow quality comment and access by people who actually know what is happening, rather than restrict itself to a soundbite of people they think know what is happening. Bravo to the site and keep fighting the good fight that points to solutions rather than simply addressing the past. (and please make the maths questions easier :) )

We are here because Tyler exposes a lot of "big boys games" that you will never see in anywhere.  I am guessing Tyler is a big game player in the capital market or credit market.  he doesn't go on TV talking about his own book for that 15 minutes. He doesn't talk about any particular stock or option, instead, he talks about the national debt, big picture of economy, corruption in the financial systems. Comparing ZH with anyone out there is like a pissing contest between an adult and 3 yo.

******** "In May 2005, Ivandjiiski became employed by another firm, Miller Buckfire & Co. Nevertheless, before the financing deal for Hawaiian Holdings was announced, he obtained confidential documents that his former firm had prepared concerning the impending deal. On March 14, 2006, while in possession of that material, non-public information, Ivandjiiski bought 1000 shares of Hawaiian Holdings for $4.75 a share. On March 15th, when the new financing was publicly announced, the share price of Hawaiian Holdings increased 6%, to close at $5.30. On March 21, 2006, Ivandjiiski sold his 1,000 shares of Hawaiian Holdings stock for $5.53 per share, for a profit of $780." *******

******** "Zero Hedge would distinguish itself as one of the most enterprising and the most combative, although not right away. The site was launched in January of this year, a few days after Dan Ivandjiiski, who lives on the Upper East Side, lost his job at Wexford Capital, a Connecticut-based hedge fund run by a former Goldman trader.  

Blogging may seem like an odd career shift for a well-paid hedge-fund analyst, but for Ivandjiiski, it marked something of a return to the family business: His father, Krassimir Ivandjiiski, is a writer and editor at Bulgaria Confidential, a tabloid known for its controversial investigative reporting. In 1996, the elder Ivandjiiski exposed what he said was political corruption and drug trafficking in, of all places, Montana, in a story republished in the U.S. in a shoestring periodical called Free Speech Newspaper." ***********

One problem is that monetary policy is done - there is nothign the fed can do at this point to fix the broken market. Rates are at negative on real basis, govt is directly lending to the private sector, TARP, etc. people are waiting for a sign that things are improving and we steamrolled through what was supposed to be the green lights to buy. Market will likely keep overshooting to the downside for an indefinite period of time

With multiple contraction and 09 earnings quickly going down by half i would not be surprised to see the S&P at true correction levels of 12-13x adjusted earnings, ending 2009 at 500 or so.

U.S. Mortgage Meltdown Slams Bank Of China Posted by ivandjiiski | 08/28/08 09:39 PM EDT

 

Foreign investors hold $1.5 trillion of mortgage debt. Most foreign banks dont even realize how big the iceberg is, caught up in fighting the inflation that the U.S. is so stubbornly "immune" to if you believe the fed. But it is all good - the U.S. will just print some more $$$s, nobody will see the impact on M3 and the global economy will buy another year of breathing room while the rick get to convert their assets into rhodium or whatever else will not suffer the immense devaluation of all monetary instruments.

It's hardly surprising that, as Hagan reports, Ivandjiiski was a big source for Matt Taibbi's conspiratorial assault on Goldman Sachs in Rolling Stone this July. Over the last several years, of course, Taibbi has been a regulator exponent of the Kos-ian view of politics. (It's also not surprising that Taibbi's piece, and therefore Ivandjiiski's view of Goldman, were carefully dissected on Kos's site.)

Scheiber: ZH is the Kos of Financial Blogs...WRONG

"Both have an aggressively anti-establishment, semi-conspiratorial worldview and are constantly fulminating against the powers that be ..."

" sellout Washington Democrats and their corporate overseers in the second..."

Scheiber is full of crap. Kos is full of dogmatic Obama Kool-Aid drinkers who spew fallacy ridden attacks at any one who questions their political Messiah propaganda... Look at Kos himself, uninformed sloganeering.

ZH Post Are Fact Based

Tyler digs up facts to support the positions of ZH and the readers are analytical in their assessments. I learn as much fact and information from ZH readers as Tyler's posts themselves.

That is the HUGE difference between ZH and a mindless schlock mill like Kos...

ZH readers actually read the posts before commenting... unlike Kos where many barely read the title before spewing the usual fallacies... I might as well read a Murdoch rag...
