GS is on the other side of that trade. Guaranteed! Their last trading quarter was swell because NITE fell.

It's not their fault, their judgement is Harvard MBA-compromised.  Amazing how much money people will pay just to be taught to be a fucking lemming.

What about Reggie? Is he OK?

Epic rise in yields yesterday while the rest of the market basically flatlined. Normally when wealth flow out of bonds, it flows into stocks and commodities, but yesterday...nothing. I've never seen that type of movement before.

It's almost like this report was released early to try and crash the market and keep yields from continuing to spike.

Take a look at that chart again:   The third most-held stock is... MSFT.    If you think GOOG hurts, just wait until the unmitigated failure that is "Surface" lands with a thud.   We haven't even begun to see tankage yet.

Lemmings indeed. It is stunning that people pay 2 and 20 for this kind of groupthink bullshit.

this begs the question does anyone need a 700 dollar stock,

priced to perfection, that pays no dividends, in their portfoglio?

The executives at Grand Moff Donnnelley better stay away from helicopter rides and hot tubs for the time being.

The interventionists giveth, and the interventionists taketh away.

If your money is in these markets, it is well positioned to be stolen from you.

on the other hand .. there's *some* amount of invenstment safety, since every single one of those top-50 companies in the list is govt-owned or is a govt contractor

except for haliburton

Cramer goes to Ohio and bearing manufacturer Timken on his "Mad Money" show tonight:

Timken was closing buildings left and right, then .Gov gave the 100% capex writeoff. Within months Timken was doubling the size of thier headquarters.

+ 1

It does not sound like a coincidence to me adr!  Timken has a lot of political clout, on both sides of the aisle.  Thanks for the news item!

I have an idea.  Click the ads for all the politicians on every website in America.  Simultaneously we can save google and bankrupt every politician.

Now that's a stimulous idea I can get behind.

Way ahead of you brother. Obama must think I love him given my ad-clicking activity on ZH over the past few months.

All you're doing is generating further revenue for Google which will be recycled back into political contributions to be spent on advertising, generating further revenue for Google...

The idea that one can bankrupt a bottomless pit? Needs work.

Don't worry, it was "magically" halted just a c-hair above support. 

DOW is crashing...down a whole 8 points...NOT ALLOWED in Bernak's "market"!!

Takes Billions per quarter to generate about the same amount of money as a walmart does on a single slow day.


It's all so very silly.

But why don't they ever halt silver when it has waterfall declines over nothing?? They must remain vigillant in the eternal war on speculators.

The press release was a fat-fingered mistaken release, based on the boilerplate and template holders still in the item. It wasn't supposed to come out until after market close.

Another form of capital control...sold as a safeguard! LOL!

This is a perfect example (case study for historians) of the fallacy of Bernanke's "wealth effect".

The hedge funds and retail will be getting massive margin calls tomorrow and forced to liquidate other momo bubble stocks. The selling is just starting.

This is how the internet bubble popped – one huge miss by a momo-driven domino pricked the internet bubble.

Strange thing is the EURUSD and AUDUSD, both darlings of the QEtc pump-and-dump, went absolutely nowhere.  Just sitting there, eating a moon pie.

I'm beginning to think these markets are rigged.
