If everything goes by the book then how do you explain economy going straight up after the elections? what changed? why everything started showing good numbers? Who turned the switch on?
Once you figure that out... you wont look for NUMBERS !!! LOL !
Everything you see here in the US, is all well planned and well programmed... people who understands it will do great and people who work hard for small pay check gets screwed after losing their homes, jobs lively hood and everything... because there is no place they can go to, to understand that.
I bet anything that the trend will be... slowly but surely revenues will improve and earning will deteriorate... by the time Republican president takes charge, companies will have most horrible balance-sheet and 1000 times higher stock price !!! LOL !
