Bill Gross: The Grinch Who Doesn't Like A 25% Gain In 2013

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Since Carl Icahn is offline (one can't tweet the market or AAPL higher when it's closed), here is Bill Gross with some twitter Christmas non-cheer.

Of course, the 25% return in 2013 was for Bernanke's favorite asset class: stocks. Bonds... not so much.

Why be a grinch?  Sell some stocks and lock in some gains.

Buy some gold with the gains!  Everyone can win!

EDIT:

This is a perfect example of why diversification is a good thing.

i am down 10% two years in a row.
that is what I get for getting in the ring against the fed.

going full retard in 2014 in many ways..
converting my losers(mainly miners ) in one or two year options.
might even buy some bitcoin.. my first attempt was not USER friendly....
I put my banks up for a competition in 2014 , first who sells me bitcoin wins.

got engaged last night..

If you mean engaged to be married, congratulations!  As a general rule, being married is better than not (certainly in my case).

I still (as I always have) suggest diversification, that includes gold (even with its two bad years).

Here is a general set of articles on Bitcoin (in "reverse order"), including step-by-step instructions on setting up for Bitcoin and then getting some:

I know a guy who just came back to the USA from Argentina (B.A.).  He was there for, brace yourself, a Bitcoin conference!  He told me that BTC is getting popular there because of Argentine .gov irresponsability through the decades (and presently).  Worth keeping an eye on if you are to be in Argentina for a long time.

Granted, Patagonia is a long drive from B.A. also, AFAIK, you could be in CHILE'S Patagonia...

"i am down 10% two years in a row.

When the FED cut rates in January, 2001, the stock market kept going down for 1 year, 9 months.

When the FED cut rates in 2007, the stock market crashed in 2008.

Sometimes it is good to get in the ring against the FED.  Don't fight the FED, doesn't always work.

Ethics did not prevent Bill Gross from hiring Greenspan to get an inside edge on Fed policy to add billions to his personal wealth.

Bill Gross is as as corrupt as any insider.  He has benefited as much as any from Fed printing.  His greed must be astronomical for him to complain about the gain in stocks this year.

Alan Greenspan, the former Federal Reserve chairman, has helped Pacific Investment Management Co. make ``billions of dollars'' in his role as a consultant, said Bill Gross, the bond manager's co-chief investment officer.

QE is against the law. For the new Chairman to NOT continue with the wind down of the "asset purchase plan" (hahahahahah. yeah, right.) would mean she would have to break the law too...just like Ben Bernanke was forced to (and lie about doing that both before Congress and the folks watching.) By actually executing on Taper Bernanke is keeping his legal options on the table should things "get out of hand here."

It puts her in his shoes...namely "Fed Chairman to solve all problems in the world." The easiest thing for her to do now is to wind down the whole program. "just completing the task." All the talking points have already been written...simply read from the script. done.

25% gains in equities -- brought to you by the Corporate Kleptocracy and its machinations.

Just smoke and mirrors to pillage the middle class for the benefit of the uber-rich and their political allies.
