    Looks like WalMart now being used as source of capital rather than AAPL...

    Anything to keep the scam running...

    • Techstrategy: "Anything to keep the scam running..."

      Why do you care?

      Isn't everything a scam? The Federal Reserve System, the U.S. Treasury, Obama, the Congress, the Senate, etc.

      • No. The scam is the imbalance WITHIN the market that exists purely because of option scalping for trading income. AAPL, INTC, CSCO and many large cap companies are held back as to sell calls and MOMO scams propped up to sell puts. Since the advent of weekly options, the multiple trends (lower for undervalued companies on a fundamental basis, higher for those overvalued) have accelerated (expansion for MOMO, contraction for actual investments). Looking at changes in short interest, these things are approaching their end. When the MM don't have a lot of free Bernanke Bux via POMO, it is harder to maintain the scam... But, they are getting help through the further repression of real investments.

        I care because the investors that ultimately hold real investments are seeing their returns suppressed from this scam so that the institutions can realize additional trading profits... This in turn means the capital markets are sending signals that reward malinvestment and value destruction, simply to enable trading profits. It is destructive for the economy....

    • Techstrategy, what do you think about Walmart's debt level. Is that alarmingly high?
