Bill Gross Has A Message For Paranoid Investors

Tyler Durden's picture


It's a day ending in "day", which means Bill Gross is talking his book on Twitter.

Some further advice for the paranoids: if you feel that Ben Bernanke, or his replacement, Mr. Chairwoman, is after you, you are correct.

So in March 2015 the FED will decrease it from 75 to 70 billion a month? Seems legit. Nothing wrong with that.

Allocate accordingly.

Right now Yellen is yelling at her monitor as she watches the ever so important 10Y. 

DC residents are reporting someone can be heard yelling "fuck you Ben", which is odd as he is beloved in only that metro area.

10y @ 3 % is the maginot line. Why? @ 10ys the market does a pv on historical returns and find that 3% is a poss new bond asset allocation. Of course, we may all be toast in 10, but Dearest Leader and his klak will still be running things so no worries.

There is something seriously out of whack when the 5Y trades like an internet stock.  My thumbs are pricking.

Gross is 100% correct, however- the Fed will not raise the short rates any time before the end of 2016 at the earliest, and my prediction is they never raise it again.  I am seriously trying to figure out what will count as an inverted yield curve under such circumstances.

Talking about paranoia, the editorial below was in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel (Ft. Lauderdale) three days after businessman Gus Boulis was murdered on Febriuary 6, 2001 in a drive by shooting right after he left a meeting with Jack Abramoff, a top fund raiser for just elected President George Bush. The editorial says Boulis was guilty of “hubris” and deserved to die. Incredible isn’t that? Boulis said at the meeting with Abramoff that he would file criminal charges against Abramoff and his partner for buying Boulis’ SunCruz Casino gambling boat operation with a bounced $26 million wire transfer down payment. Abramoff had already paid a Mob capo $250,000 (by checks for non-existent catering services) to take care of Boulis. Waiting for the “go” order, the hit team was across the street from the meeting place eating at a Wendy’s, where they were recorded on the store surveillance camera.

The lead detective on this murder case, Art Carbo, admitted he had that video of the killers, but only 4 years later under oath and on the witness stand, after he retired from the Ft. Lauderdale police to get a job waiting for him at the Florida State Attorney’s office (Thank you, Governor Jeb Bush!). Carbo did nothing, of course. Only after Bill Moyers NOW PBS show reported on Abramoff’s corrupt activities did the law do anything about the Boulis murder, even though an informant had told the FBI who the killers were within hours after the murder. Boulis’ family had an article they posted in the October 2001 edition of an online gambling magazine identifying the killers and Abramoff’s involvement. Ignoring the tips they got from Boulis' attorney on who the killers were, the Son-Sentinell editorial writers blame Boulis for his murder.

Forget the alleged “dark street,” what remains dark about this case is that lead hijacker Mohammed Atta was a guest of Abramoff’s on SunCruz’s gambling boats, as reported by former NSA employee Wayne Madsen. Let’s look at what happened to Friendly Checker cab driver Dirk Hale, who lived for two months in the summer of 2001 next door to Atta in an apartment house by the Young Circle, was later murdered on February 8, 2002, one day after he told his landlord he was moving. In Hale’s case, within days, Hollywood police had arrested a black teenager, who “confessed” he had killed Hale. Hale’s involvement with 9/11 hijacker Atta was swept under the rug. Strangely enough, Katherine Smith, the Tennessee DMV employee set to testify about her sale of driver’s licenses to five Arabic gentlemen, died in a car crash one day before she was to testify on February 10, 2002, at a federal trial. Smith’s car burned up with Smith inside, her clothes soaked with gasoline (remind you of Michael Hastings’ death?). What are the chances that within 24 hours, two eyewitnesses with potential information on the 9/11 plot would be murdered inside crashed cars?

Don’t ask the editorial staff of the Sun-Sentinel. People with the potential to upset the applecart of corruption that the USA has become are people asking to be bumped off, according to the kowtowing editors at the Sun-Sentinel.

Live large, die large. That sentiment won't appear on his gravestone, but it may best sum up the flamboyant life and violent death of Konstantinos "Gus" Boulis. Boulis, a Greek immigrant who built a multimillion-dollar business empire in South Florida, was gunned down gangland-style on Tuesday night even while working to extricate himself from a tangled web of legal and financial troubles. The murder is being investigated, but no arrests have been made. The police may not know who killed him, but the ancient Greeks coined a word for what really brought Gus Boulis down: hubris. Webster's defines hubris as "arrogance caused by too great pride." To the classical tragedians of ancient Greece, it was the character flaw that brought down many a hero, from Prometheus to Oedipus to Icarus. To them it represented impious disregard for the limits governing human action in an orderly universe, and it was a sin to which the great and gifted were most susceptible. Sounds like Gus all right.

Personable, energetic and generous, he was widely admired for his business acumen. He built the Miami Subs fast-food restaurant chain, and almost single-handedly created South Florida's "cruise to nowhere" gambling industry with his SunCruz Casino ships. He was a doting father and had a legion of friends -- and perhaps just as many enemies. At the time of his death, Boulis was being divorced by his wife, had been sued by myriad business partners, stood accused of threatening to kill the man to whom he had been forced by the government to sell SunCruz, and had been heavily fined for concealing his ownership in two of his companies. That was one side of Boulis. The other was that he was "imaginative and dynamic," according to friends, one of whom described him as "just a very gregarious, fun guy to be around." Not on Tuesday night, though. Anyone who'd been around him that night might have ended up dead, caught in the line of fire. Maybe that's what it meant to be Boulis' friend: you had to take the bad with the good. There was a lot of both in Gus Boulis' life.

In the end, though, despite his enormous talent, drive and wealth, he proved to be just flesh and blood, an imperfect human vessel from which the life poured unceremoniously onto a dark Fort Lauderdale street. It was the end of the road for the man who, according to Hollywood Mayor Mara Giulianti, "liked to play by his rules alone." Someone changed the rules. So ends this Greek tragedy.

i think your point is that during W Bush the economy didn't lose a trillion dollars, it was stolen . Bernanke knows where the skeletons are, and he printed new money to replace the old. of course that other trillion is still out there, and that remains an inflationary problem. (so he conjured up some new $100 bills, and hopefully his replacement or someone will orphan the old money - someone who cares not for their own personal safety - and that chapter will close) the real money laundering was done through internet casinos, set up in the Caribbean, next door to friendly swiss style bank accounts, but thse orgs, or fronts were created through VENTURE capital groups, which are pools of money for speculators, with very little accounting done.

Pretty sure everyone on this site talks their book.  Whose book are folks suppose to talk?

Gross gets criticized here for talking his book and Goldman Sachs gets criticized here for talking opposite their book.   No win.  Guess that is all good for driving site hits.
