    Markets Will Crash Between Now & When Central Banks Stop Printing

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 19 Oct 2017

    Key Question: Can Central Banks Sep Back in to Save Markets? I have been mostly bullish on the US stock market ever since realizing in October 2009 that the US Federal Reserve and other Central Banks’ money printing had eliminated the market downside.  What should be taught in Stock Market 101, particularly to those seeking to be Chartered Financial Analysts, is that all there is in the stock market are shares of stock.  Money flows in and out of the checking accounts of investors and stock market intermediaries.

    Some Counter Logic with Bonds and Deficit

    By David Ader 13 Oct 2017

    It wasn’t exactly a slow news week, but still the New York Times had the temerity to take away space from any number of its Harvey Weinstein updates to tell us, way back on the 4th page of the business, that “Fed Still Puzzled by Inflation, but Rate Increase Is on Track.”  This has been the story for a year at least and the question of why inflation is low continues to give way to the Fed’s confidence in its models that it will eventually rise.   I get they want to hike, I guess everyone does.  Why they want to hike is another story though centered essentially on the Phillips curve which is rather a faulty, but persistent, argument.

    Why This Hiking Cycle Might be Different

    By David Ader 06 Oct 2017

    When do we stop listening to Yellen?  This is, of course, a reference to the impending potential change in her career.  Bear in mind we will likely be listening to her even if she’s out of the Fed – brains, insight and experience do count for something – but her relevance will, like other ex-Fed officials, tend to diminish with time.

    Keynesians Driving the Global Economy to Ruin: $1 of Government Spending is not = $1 of After Tax Income

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 06 Oct 2017

    Followers of John Maynard Keynes tend to believe that $1 of government spending is just as good as $1 of after tax income, if not better. The key message of Keynesian economics is when the rate of growth of after tax profits of both industry and individuals declines, then increased government spending is supposed to not only provide a bridge but enhance an overall business recovery.

    Tax Plan will Boost Deficit, but the Main Game for now

    By David Ader 29 Sep 2017

    THE stories behind the sharp rise in yields over the last two weeks come from the two so obvious areas it’s hard to try and nuance the price action to anything else. There was the FOMC, of course, largely seen as more hawkish (I’d say stubbornly hawkish) in its gentle bias, and the Administration’s rapid move to push for tax reform. The former hit the front end and flattened the curve; the latter hit further out the curve and steepened it back up. Read more from David Ader's latest musings.

    Why Corporate Tax is the Worst Tax of All

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 21 Sep 2017

    No Corporate Taxes Could Increase All Collected Income Taxes. Imagine the US having 0% corporate income taxes. First obvious impact would be to dramatically increase business profits and return on equity. US companies would have an obvious cost advantage over every country with a corporate income tax. What better initial and long-term boost to US productivity and competitiveness could there be than eliminating corporate taxes? Read more from Charles Biderman.

    Trump’s Negative Impact on Economy Increasingly Obvious

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 13 Sep 2017

    There is no question that US stock and bond markets have each been going up in price ever since Donald Trump was elected President. However, underlying the appreciation of stocks and bonds are more and more warning signs that all is not well for the longer term – all due to a growing awareness of the ineffectiveness of the Trump administration.

    Range Changed, but Don’t see Much More Rally

    By David Ader 08 Sep 2017

    It is a rare event indeed to see a front page of the WSJ start with a headline; “Array of Threats Stirs Up Markets” – and then write what’s effectively a Credit Markets column telling you what’s up with interest rates. It’s a fine story, make no mistake, but focuses one’s attention on the recent and still more immediate story which basically captures what’s motivating moves in Treasury yields. To wit, we have 1) Hurricane Irma, on the heels of 2) Hurricane Harvey, 3) ongoing to expanding tensions with North Korea, 4) dovish Fed comments from Fed doves, 5) the steady litany of low inflation figures, and concludes with structural element such as, 6) ‘potentially intractable forces, such as globalization and technological advances’ and global debt levels and the aging population.

    Data Balance Tips Scales a Tad to Bulls

    By David Ader 01 Sep 2017

    In the week just passed, the Treasury market eked out some further gains largely on the back of non-economic events like North Korea’s missile across Japan and the floods in Texas where some estimates of damage exceed $100 bn to as much as $190 bn (AccuWeather). The economic impact, of course, remains an unknown but that it will initially be a drag on GDP is understood. Katrina cost $160 bn. The very tame NFP report came after the fact but does enhance a bullish perspective. Job gains were weaker-than-expected at 156K overall, 41k worth of downward revisions, an uptick in UNR and remarkably tame 0.1% rise in average hourly earnings. Ouch.

    Income Growth Stops When Government Debt Surges

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 31 Aug 2017

    Rapid economic growth is just around the corner, say Central Bankers, Wall Street economists and global investors. However, all that has been growing in the US and the rest of the developed world is government debt. What has not been growing is average and median household income - no matter what monetary strategies central banks create. Read more from Charles Biderman.

    At Same Time Informa TrimTabs MacroIndex Makes New High US Equity Mutual and US Equity Exchange Traded Funds are on track for the biggest one month combined outflow since January 2016. That bearish tidbit follows on what I wrote last week, which was that US public companies have announced the least amount of new stock buybacks this earnings season in five years, and have also reduced actual capital expenditures on new plant and equipment so far this year to the lowest level in five years.
