October 26, 2021 | Has Zillow’s Collapse Signaled A Warning For The Capital Markets? Part II

In part one of this article, we discussed how the recent decline in Zillow, Redfin, and Opendoor share prices could reflect a concern that the risks involved in holding large home inventories while attempting to “flip houses” could present for these Real Estate firms. The recent 50% price drop in the share price levels should […]

October 26, 2021 | Remember Strikes?

Years (and years) ago, I was an unskilled 17- year-old who needed a job. So I drove out to a “foundry” (a factory that makes things out of molten metal) on the edge of town and asked if they needed any more workers. They said yes, hired me on the spot, and enrolled me in […]

October 25, 2021 | The Complicated Path Forward

Consumer price inflation ripped higher in September, surging 4.4% year-over-year, the fastest pace of price increases in 18 years. Let’s discuss this further. We have an inflation problem and the Bank of Canada remains of the view that inflation will be transitory. Although they really can’t say otherwise, for if they did it would only […]

October 25, 2021 | Resistance is Building – Let’s Go Brandon

The number one song on iTunes, beating even Adele, was “Let’s go Brandon,” which was banned by YouTube because it is the new saying “F__k Joe Biden.” What has emerged around the country is resistance that has NEVER before been seen in America. The new anti-Biden “Let’s Go Brandon” song by rapper Bryson Gray was […]

October 24, 2021 | Bitcoin Mania Still Has Miles to Go

The performance of Apple shares has been a reliable harbinger of where greed and hubris would take this seemingly invincible bull market next. Apple is the biggest-cap stock of them all, worth $2.5 trillion, and it has increasingly become a sure thing for institutional investors since bottoming a generation ago below $5. With its broad […]

October 24, 2021 | When Tools Stop Working

Because I believe in the division of labor, I rarely use hand tools today. In the ‘80s and ‘90s, I had two 4 x 8 pegboards on my garage wall full of tools along with my large Craftsman toolbox. I had the right tool for every job around the car, house, and yard. I worked […]

October 24, 2021 | Nearly Half of Canadian Families Experiencing Some Difficulty Affording Food

  We reported that food prices are on the rise in Canada and worldwide. A recent survey (n= 5,011) shows the impact inflation is having on Canadian families. According to a poll by the Angus Reid Institute, nearly half (46%) of respondents said they were having “some difficulty” paying for groceries. Over one-third (37%) said […]

October 23, 2021 | Has Zillow’s Collapse Signaled A Warning For The Capital Markets?

Watching Zillow (ZG) move from over $200 per share to recent levels below $90, reflecting a more than 55% collapse in price, while the housing market continues to rally may be an indication that traders/investors have already discounted the future peak in the US capital markets and Real Estate assets related to the current market […]

October 23, 2021 | Trading Desk Notes For October 23, 2021

New All-Time Highs for the leading stock indices – but “rotation” rules. The S+P and the DJIA came roaring back and hit new All-Time highs after that tiny 6% dip in September (capital flows show that retail and hedge funds Bought-The-Dip), but the tech-heavy Nasdaq and the small-cap Russell fell short of making new highs. […]

October 22, 2021 | Powell on the “Economic Exit from the Pandemic”

At last, Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has begun speaking independently as he departs from the Biden agenda. Former President Trump and Powell notoriously clashed over interest rates, and we heard time and time again that the central bank was independent of government rule. Once Biden entered the White House, Powell seemed to be more […]

October 22, 2021 | An Elite Economy: Like Traffic Lights on the Fritz

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND – God? Or man? Who should take the rap? God will defend Himself – tomorrow. Today, we continue with our case against man. It’s classic, isn’t it? A group is successful. It expands its wealth and power. The wealth softens it… the power corrupts it. And then, its elites begin running the whole system […]

October 22, 2021 | Canadian CPI massively underestimates housing costs

Canada’s statistics bureau, StatsCan, says that CPI-measured inflation is running hot. Year-over-year gains were 4.4 percent for September 2021, one of the fastest rates among developed countries. News reports highlighted rising food and gasoline prices, but house prices are soaring, by 18 percent from a year ago. Why is CPI inflation only 4.4 percent with […]

October 22, 2021 | Inflation Chronicles: Even Solar Prices Are Soaring

Solar panels are basically microprocessors, so it’s not a surprise that they’ve been following their own version of Moore’s Law, declining in price by 5%-10% each year. As a result, solar is now competitive with fossil-fuel-derived electricity in a growing number of markets. Even unlikely places like Saudi Arabia, awash in oil and natural gas, […]

October 21, 2021 | Manipulating VAERS Data through Underreporting

The Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) was designed for medical providers to report any complications with the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines, which would seem to be a valuable tool considering the effects are widely unknown. However, there is no mandate for medical care providers to report side effects to the system. Whistleblower and Physician Assistant […]

October 21, 2021 | Fed Officials Reminded Not To Trade Personally, Did So Anyway

No one needed to remind Fed officials that trading their personal accounts around Fed policy announcements was unethical and a breach of public trust.  But the central bank’s ethics office sent out the reminder anyway, and several of the Fed officials executed opportunistic personal trades all the same. Wolves masquerading as shepherds do not deserve […]
