You mean the broke US consumer that has an underwater mortgage, can't get refinanced, financed a zero down car because he has no cash and now has less for consumer discretionaries and his kids and dad moved back in with him because they don't have jobs? That consumer?
What amazes me is that the Dow ended down 200 and this POS didn't even sweat out 1%. Weird action. Don't think this is a Lowes, HD or Walmart Fund. It must be a LULU, Apple and Sketchers stock lol. General is what they call it, but in 6mos, this POS will be less than $40.
I'm betting against the consumer, starting now. The pop in gas is not going away. The more it lingers around, the worse the effects. The already-shaken consumer now has to take money from their TJ Max spendings and put it towards filling up the car and paying for more expensive groceries.
