Rosenberg: "Era Of Green Shoots Over"

Good, succinct obit of the Green Shoots period compliments of Rosie's headline points from his morning piece.

Era of the Green Shoots is Over

Equity Market Observations From Rosenberg

In his morning update piece, following up on his CNBC interview and providing much more clarity on the themes he touched upon, Rosenberg gives his explanation on the four factors currently in play in the market, which include i) technicals, ii) fund flows/market positioning, iii) valuation and iv) fundamentals. It is a tale of two cities, with the first two indicating a disconnect from reality as the market has likely more potential upside, while the underlying valuation/ fundamentals representing a market that has rarely been as rich.

Rosenberg On The Market Rally

Nothing new here for those who follow David, but some typical soundbites. "Rally can continue based on technicals. In late summer/early fall we will rollover" etc.

And of course the intellectual titans at CNBC close it off with a stunner of a question as the ominous "here comes the commercial break" music hits 145 dB. Has to be seen to be believed.

David Rosenberg: "600-840 On The S&P"

"David Rosenberg can't be bargained with. He can't be reasoned with. He doesn't feel pity or remorse... and he will absolutely not stop. Ever! Until all the baseless propaganda is dead."

On a day when the U.S. citizenry takes it easy, grilling, drinking and generally doing what it is good at - being lazy, hoping that things will get better, the economic terminator who recently moved to Canada, provides a steady stream of ammunition in the fight with ignorance and propaganda. Rosenberg's morning notes from this morning are a treat.

Rosenberg Reappears

And this time under a much more hospitable master. Dear Merrill - peace; the only thing Zero Hedge needs from you at this point is more documented REIT upgrades... And maybe the reason for Sakwa's departure. Amazing how much less rosier Rosie's reality is when you don't have green shoots breathing over your shoulder.

Goodbye David Rosenberg

One of the few sane voices in the desert has left the (Merrill Lynch) building. David Rosenberg, on his way out, leaves everyone with an economist's dozen of rules to remember.

David, so long, and thanks for all the fish.

Rosie's rules to remember:

1) In order for an economic forecast to be relevant, it must be combined with a market call.

2) Never be a slave to the data – they are no substitute for astute observation of the big picture.
