E My Take On Recessionary Indicators
Despite the regularity of economic downturns and the existence of business cycles in a free market economy it is quite obvious that recession calling remains an art more than a science with the scientists being wrong consistently.

It's rise is justified on solid growth. The price is high as always, but it is a better buy today than it was a month ago. #NFLX

Was It Worth It?

"My theory is that indexing is most useful on narrowly-defined groups of stocks and less useful on the really big blobs." very astute and very correct. However, advisers wrongly get clients in the mindset any diversity is good and then keep plopping them in the S&P index. Bigger isn't always better, but it is when people are fed the line hook line and sinker. All the money flows to it and makes a self fulfilling prophecy until it doesn't then watch out.

Saudi Aramco Reportedly Shelves IPO In "Face-Saving" Move

If he was thinking Russia would help he was badly mistaken. Their plans to diversify is wise given that they can not increase production from here by that much more without endangering their long term supplies. I suspect their reserves aren't what they have been implying they were and they know it.

Very good points. Although people bring up the fact that he lower savings rate won't have an effect, long term it does. Also, if capital gains slow then that will be another element discouraging growth in the future. Sadly, such a cycle feeds on itself.

U.S. Consumer Price Index Rises Amid Surge In Gasoline Prices

Higher prices weak growth is not a good sign. However its not gas alone, in reality the US dollar weakness should be a concern for everyone and everything if it persists (save exporters). Unlike Asian export nations, the US only gets some benefit from a weak currency and is largely offset because we are an import nation more than an export making things we buy more expensive.

People forget, the central banks main function is and should be the successful sales of US Treasuries from the government largess. Everything else comes second. QE is actually a way they an cover up that failing and isn't looked at in that light, although it should be.

Technical Outlook On Google
4 days ago

Freedom is not what I would define Google's campus and I've been at Google many a time. It is a dog eat dog business environment where performance and networking survive. I am all for R&D, but directed to where it is profitable. One reason Google is the way it is, is because of so many divisions that don't make money ever and going from project to project. Google is a great company. Carefully honed focus is the key.

Improved but only marginally. There is really not a significant or noteworthy change.

US Core Inflation Stuck At 1.7% Again – USD Falls Across The Board
4 days ago

The only way inflation picks up is commodity inflation for basic things which is not good, its bad. That is because the other ways inflation picks up are dead in the water. These are 1) People making more and spending more and/or more people making more which is not happening. 2) People borrowing more which is hard to do without #1 and isn't happening 3) The government spending more or taking less which is rumored but hasn't happened and 4) events that cause natural shortages and price run ups (fortunately none big enough to cause mass inflation across the board has happened) and 5) Some Federal Reserve insanity which I think the Federal Reserve is already up to its eyeballs with QE.
