Such a bearish appearance must be the result of the rose-colored glasses affirmative action thing at GE Capital: we have yet to see what the Comcast policy vis-a-vis unbiased content is. Nothing substantially new from Meredith - same focus areas of concern including toxic mortgages on the Fed's balance sheet, non cash flow generating "assets," and consumer, consumer, consumer (apparently she has not read the David Bianco piece either - after all the US consumer now accounts for 100% of Kindle revenues and 0% of US GDP, or so Merrill will soon want you to believe). Yet with Comrade Sam making sure all is good for ever (the alternative, just like falling housing prices in your average S&P model from 2005, simply did not compute at the most recent 5 year plenary session), is there any reason to worry about anything? After all the debt auction carnival begins afresh again today at 1PM with $40 billion in 3 years. So long as those keep getting gobbled up without a glitch, all shall be well.
