Bill Gross runs the largest bond fund in the world. Something about not wanting to throw stones and living in glass houses.

Bill Gross certainly lives up to his name. A Vegas man at heart (& soul).

Personally, I think the next bubble to burst is the bond. The Fed, the ECB and the Bank of Japan, are making great efforts to keep interest rates at a level unrealistically low. There are trillions of dollars involved in this process. But we know this is artificial. Sooner or later, reality will impose. If I had bonds, I would care to have a high liquidity. Would also look at your quote two or three times a day. As soon something strange appeared in the sky, liquidate all my positions. The losses will be extremely large.

And each re-inflation cycle takes 10x the fiat printing and leadings to 50% less "flation" than previously (in nominal, let alone real, terms).

...and the exponential destruction in the purchasing power of the dollar.  -  FAIL.

Is Ohio's 'secret' energy boom going bust?

An informative article on the Utica play including mysterious disappearing oil windows.

"....In an SEC filing this May, the company said it was planning to drill a significant number of wells in Utica's "oil window" over the rest of this year, referring to an area that is expected to hold mostly oil. Three months later it said it "continues to focus on developing the wet gas and dry gas windows," with no mention of oil. Chesapeake declined to comment on the change in description."

  mass - If this isn't a misprint it has to be one of most bizarre statements I’ve seen in a while: “McClendon (head of Chesapeake) himself says secrecy actually benefits his shareholders. He said in November that Chesapeake would stop reporting well-result details to investors because positive well data were driving land prices higher.” So he’ll hold back data that might run land prices up which would also cause stock price to rise. So a shareholder may sell his stock at a price lower than he might had the POSITIVE data been released. But, at the same time, an investor might be willing to pay more for CHK stock based on McClendon’s admission of “secrecy” by assuming CHK is holding back POSITIVE data when in fact they are holding back NEGATIVE data. But by admitting he’s withholding positive results he’s also admitting withholding negative results. You can’t do one without the other. IOW if they only report all wells with negative results then the implication would be the unreported wells had positive results.

He may have said he’s doing this to keep lease costs down but it’s also an admission of manipulating the company’s valuation via press releases. The SEC normally has a dim view of such activity. And if the Utica doesn’t live up to expectations and CHK stock drops when that info is eventually made public I would expect shareholder lawsuits based upon withholding critical financial data. Ohio may not require the timely release of critical data but the SEC does.

  Another sociopath running a public company. Wouldn't touch this company with a thousand feet of drilling pipe.

Spot Krugmanrand prices are surging, too!


*Krugmanrand: A gold colored powder-coated round, composed of 10% tin and 90% nano-coated bullshit particles, bearing the slogan "In Diocletian We Trust" and "To Infinity & Beyond!" on one side, alongside "CTRL+P," and having the other side enscribed with "What, Me Worry?" alongside an engraved likeness of one Ben S. Bernanke (Shakey McShakester).

Lots of people are buying bags of junk Krugmanrands by the pound.

Bllllllllling!  You are correct, sir!

Just tell me what's going to be inflated next before it's actually inflated.

The best part is this will work... As long as the Sheep continue to sleep. 

(Hey look over here! Its a Karfatistan)

hampsterwheel's picture

seems to be working just fine - it will never ever end - the Fed/ECB and IMF are all powerful - you can print trillions of fiat dollars without any ramifications or prices going up - hell SSecurity is only getting a 1.3% COLA - back to bed - wake me when its over.....

Mark housing to face value and get this shit over , "people will feel "Richer" when the prices of their assets go up"

The Richer must get Richer!

You can see it happening in my area right now. Most of the foreclosures are being sold to minorities for little or no money down. I talked to a guy last week who was unemployed and going to school. He told me that he was just approved for a mortgage on a foreclosure. He just needed to come up with $2500 bucks!

Is there some new program that us crackers havent heard about?

GMadScientist's picture

Yeah, it has great benefits...once you get used to the bars.

Keep on inflating housing another 15% so I can sell to some other bag holder and be rid of this monkey on my back once and for all.

Inflate housing again?  How?  You need buyers to participate, and either lending standards are too tight, or the consumer refuses to get burned again.  Of course, like the other responses, the bastards can just devalue to the dollar.

Mr Pink's picture

See above post

Unqualified buyers are being given loans again. Probably paying top dollar for run down foreclosures because they don't need a down payment!

If this sounds familar its because it is

Fuck you, Bill...goddamn hypocrite; how much fucking MBS are you holding, prick?

His job it to make "money" for his clients. Everybody knows what the fed is going to do. All he is doing is front running the fed, and he would be stupid not to.

GMadScientist's picture

I can still find his Jedi-mindtrick un-"talking his book" insulting though.

And what do I care what the fucker says if he doesn't back it up?

The intellectual equivalent of a crack dealer doing DARE indoctrination for the kiddies.

'Inflate stocks til 2000. Then inflate housing til 2007. Then inflate stocks til 2012. Now inflate housing again.'

a/k/a 'Bubbles 1, 2, 3 and 4.'

Strange that Gross fails to include negative-yield bonds in Bubble 3.

I must admit, my respect for Bill G. is improving. Telling the truth. Interesting.

Like politicians, fund managers start to blurt out the truth just before they retire.

Hubbs's picture

Sounds like he got double crossed by the FED or the politicians and was told to walk.

This is why we have a housing "recovery" in certain areas.

Shadow inventory, and almost anything selling using FHA loans (and USDA).

FED buying Mortgage Backed Securities the most naked bubble blowing of all.

$40 billion per month into securities based on bad mortgage portfolios in perpetuity and claiming it will help improve employment, UN-fucking-believable.

Houses are a drain; front loaded mortgages with cash going to banks while maintenance and taxes held by home "owners" who are essentially tenants of the state/banking kleptoligarchy.

House and property can be confiscated simply to increase tax revenues, so you never really "own" it.

Ponzi, Ponzi, Ponzi.
