Friday, April 18, 2014 – Yes, We Have No Avocados

Yes, We Have No Avocados by Sinclair Noe The markets are closed today in observance of Good Friday. No economic reports today. Let’s take a look at next week’s economic calendar. On Wednesday, we’ll get reports on new and existing home sales. New home sales are expected to be up slightly, while existing home sales are expected to post a decline for the third consecutive month. Higher mortgage rates and rising prices have pushed some potential buyers out of the market. The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage is up almost a full percentage point from its recent low one year ago. The softness in home prices in the first quarter has also hurt homeowners struggling with negative equity. The pool of underwater borrowers peaked at 12.8 million, or 29% of all properties with a mortgage, in the second quarter of 2012. Rising prices have lifted millions back above water. As of the first quarter of this year, some 9.1 million homes (or 17% of homes with mortgages) were “seriously” underwater, owing at least 25% more than property’s estimated market value. Next Friday, we’ll see the Consumer sentiment index, which has been showing a lack of enthusiasm reflecting the weak pace of hiring and meager pay raises for most households, which in turn results in sluggish consumer spending. Thursday, we’ll get a report on durable goods orders. If economic growth is finding traction, you would expect to see businesses spending more on equipment, which should show up in the …

Friday, November 01, 2013 – Halloween, Christmas and Banksters

Everyday is Christmas by Sinclair Noe DOW + 69 = 15,615SPX + 5 = 1761NAS + 2 = 392210 YR YLD + .08 = 2.62%OIL – 1.78 = 94.60 GOLD – 6.90 = 1316.80SILV – .04 = 21.97 I hope you enjoyed Halloween, maybe you got to hand out some candy to the little kids. And what wasn’t handed out, well I hope it’s digested, because this this might make you queasy. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, etc., etc. Today is Black Friday. Retailers facing the shortest holiday season in years are preparing to assail customers with deals and promotions as of right now. Wal-Mart is kicking off its online deals today, a month earlier than usual, underscoring worries that intense discounting aimed at luring budget-conscious shoppers could result in the most tepid holiday spending rise in four years. Retailers have traditionally kicked off the all-important holiday shopping season on or the day after Thanksgiving and saved some of their best online deals for “Cyber Monday,” the Monday after Thanksgiving when workers return to offices and use computers to make holiday purchases. This year, the holiday falls on Nov. 28 and as a result there are six fewer shopping days between Thanksgiving and Christmas, prompting many retailers to jump the gun on incentives. So, if you want a 42-inch JVC LED TV for just $299, or a Xelio 10-inch tablet for just $49, with free shipping, today is your day, because all you are in the eyes of corporate America is …
