October FOMC Week Starts With Traditional Overnight Meltup





Just as it is easy being a weatherman in San Diego ("the weather will be... nice. Back to you"), so the same inductive analysis can be applied to another week of stocks in Bernanke's centrally planned market: "stocks will be... up." Sure enough, as we enter October's last week where the key events will be the conclusion of the S&P earnings season and the October FOMC announcement (not much prop bets on a surprise tapering announcement this time), overnight futures have experienced the latest off the gates, JPY momentum ignition driven melt up.

LBO Multiples: The Latest Credit Bubble 2.0 Record





This week marked what we suspect will become an important inflection point when the world looks back at this debacle of a bubble. The Fed, having already warned in January of 'froth' in credit markets (and ths the fuel for 'hope' in stocks) proposed tougher underwriting standards for leveraged loans. Credit markets have underperformed since; but as Diapason Commodities' Sean Corrigan notes, the baleful impact of the central banks is still everywhere to be seen in the credit markets. From junk issuance to the rapid regrowth of the CDO business to the 'record' high multiples now being exchanged for LBOs; Central Banker's monomaniacal fixation on zero interest rates and artificial bond pricing is setting us up for the next, great disaster of misallocated capital and malinvested resources.

Did The Fed Just Begin To "Pop" The Credit Bubble?





When Jeremy Stein warned in February of "froth" in the credit markets, it was much discussed but little action'ed. However, today we start to see some actions:

  • *FED SAID TO ISSUE WARNING ON LAX LEVERAGED LOAN UNDERWRITING

With cov-lite issuance at all-time record highs (as we explained here most recently and Moody's tried to ignore), Stein's bubble is even bigger and whether or not the Fed 'tapers' it is clear now by this signal that their concerns over bubbles are growing day by day.

Carl iCahn Tweets "New Letter" Sent To Apple's Tim Cook





Given the carnage that ensued in NFLX yesterday, we suspect the following tweet:

which he notes will be released to the public tomorrow is more a threat of him "selling" his shares if he doesn't get what he wants... and given the market liquidity, who knows what AAPL's stock does?

Unveiling The Thinner, Faster, Prettier, Cheaper, Same-As-All-The-Others Apple Product Launch - Live Webcast





It seems, once again, that Apple shares were bid into the product announcement and sold on the news (though it appears the selling has been front-run a bit). No one really knows what they will show but expectations are for a shiny new iPad which will wow audiences world wide until they start to use it and realize it's the same as the old one... (rumors include iPad Mini 2, iPad 5, New Macro Pro, New MacBook Pros, OS X Mavericks, and even Apple TV again...)
