Hey Wally did you ever hear about the George Bush email scandal? In 2007, when Congress asked the Bush administration for emails surrounding the firing of eights U.S. attorneys, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales revealed that many of the emails requested could not be produced because they were sent on a non-government email server. The officials had used the private domain gwb43.com, a server run by the Republican National Committee. Two years later, it was revealed that potentially 22 million emails were deleted, which was considered to be a violation of the Presidential Records Act.
22 White House officials “including Karl Rove, the chief political strategist” used private RNC email accounts for government business. “Political advisers to President Bush may have improperly used their Republican National Committee e-mail accounts to conduct official government business, and some communications that are required to be preserved under federal law may be lost as a result, White House officials said Wednesday. Of the 1,000 White House officials with political duties, 22 — including Karl Rove, the chief political strategist — have Republican National Committee accounts that are supposed to be used only for campaign-related work. But recent revelations that some officials have used those accounts for Bush administration business, including discussions of a plan to dismiss United States attorneys, has prompted a Congressional investigation.”
"the lyin Muslim dirtbag always provided phony numbers which had to be revised"
The BEA, Bureau of Economic Analysis provides the data not the president piglet.
I know the truth hurts and is hard to understand sometimes in your wacko world of fairy tales and magic. Those are the ACTUAL up to date quarterly figures! You are probably confusing quarterly to yearly but you SPECIFICALLY said, " and not one single qtr of GDP growth above 3%", piglet.
Try another source for your information besides Foxy. Real GDP 4th Q 2009 and 2nd Q 2010 was 3.9%, Q4 2011 was 4.6%, Q3 and Q4 2013 was 3% and 3.9%, Q2 2014 and Q3 2014 was 4.6% and 4.3% and the last one was Q2 2015 at 3.9%. This was achieved despite dealing with one of the most contentious, uncooperative and worthless congress in US history. Isn't it a bit hypocritical that the states with highest number on welfare or state assistance are mostly Republican states! Obama is NOT a Muslim but you sir ARE a lying, racist pig!
Let's see people here were complaining when Brexit occurred and said Obama was at fault for the drop in stock prices when in fact he tried to prevent Brexit and for that he was called a racist. You claim Obama never mentions anything when a black man kills a cop when in fact Obama has made several comments in support of police officers. Maybe you are the one who needs to do a little soul searching, Wally.
"As I said in my State of the Union Address, we’ve got to be able to put ourselves in the shoes of the wife who won’t rest until the police officer she married walks through the door at the end of his shift,” he said. “That comfort has been taken from Mrs. Goforth. So we must offer her our comfort – and continue to stand up for the safety of police officers wherever they serve.”
On behalf of the American people, I offered Mrs. Goforth my condolences and told her that Michelle and I would keep her and her family in our prayers,” Obama said in a statement released this evening.
Obama said that he promised Goforth’s widow that he would continue to praise bravery of police officers who served their communities.
“Targeting police officers is completely unacceptable — an affront to civilized society,” Obama said.
The suspect, Shannon J. Miles, was charged for the execution-style shooting, accused of firing 15 shots into Goforth’s body at close range.
He actually made that statement back in April because he had the foresight to know the damage it could do. Once again he showed that Presidents should think ahead and not wait until a problem occurs before they react. When you read the entire comment in context it doesn't appear racist at all now does it. He tried to prevent Brexit and now most Brits are having second thoughts as well.

"Britain would go “to the back of the queue” and would not be able to strike a trade deal with America “any time soon” if it leaves the European Union, Barack Obama claimed last night.
The American President used his farewell trip to the UK to make a passionate case for Britain to stay in the EU and said countries that make their presence felt on the world stage “aren’t the nations that go it alone”.
He used his appearance at a press conference in the Foreign Office alongside David Cameron to dismiss the central claim made by Leave campaigners that Britain’s economy would not be harmed by a vote to leave.
Attacking Eurosceptic ministers for “ascribing to the United States certain actions we will take if the UK does leave the EU”, he said: “I figured you might want to hear from the president of the United States what I think the United States is going to do.
"And on that matter, for example, I think it's fair to say that maybe some point down the line there might be a UK-US trade agreement, but it's not going to happen any time soon because our focus is in negotiating with a big bloc, the European Union, to get a trade agreement done.
State I think he won the rockhead of the year! I don't know what he's going to do when his mom kicks him out of the basement.
MKM Partners’s Ian Ing, reiterating a Buy rating on shares of Micron Technology (MU), writes that the company’s outlook is increasingly favorable according to both bull and bear, and he’s raising his estimates although some risks remain.
Micron shares are down 81 cents, or 6%, at $12.40.
Ing trimmed his revenue estimate for the fiscal Q3 that ended in May, to $2.959 billion from $2.965 billion. However, he raises his Q4 view o $3.285 billion from $3.17 billion. That brings his full-year estimates to $12.528 billion and 10 cents EPS, up from $12.42 billion and 6 cents a share.
DRAM chip supply-demand ratios are “stabilizing,” he writes:
In DRAM (54% of last quarter sales), competitors Samsung and Hynix have been highly disciplined at lowering DRAM CapEx spending this year, supported by public communications and semi equipment data points. Investors are hoping that initial signs of price stabilization hold, as MU plans to outship CY16 industry bit growth (low 20s). MU’s long-awaited ramp of 20nm output coincides well with seasonal demand in computing (mid-20s % of February quarter DRAM) and mobile (low-20s).
And NAND is looking much stronger in the second half of this year:
We expect NAND market commentary to be the most positive (41% of February quarter sales). In storage, migration to 3D NAND is allowing lower price points and SSD demand elasticity in client and enterprise applications (displacing rotating HDDs). Recall that MU’s 3-D NAND bit crossover is targeted at the end of CY16, and they plan to under-ship bit growth of mid-30s on the later transition.
However, Ing cautions that “both buy-side and sell-side expectations for Micron are increasingly positive,” but that “DRAM stabilization could take longer than expected and MU’s DRAM commentary may be on the cautious side as it is likely seeking renegotiation of the $3.2B Inotera JV buyout.”
On May 17, 2016 when MU and NTC entered into this agreement MU was trading for less than $10. There is nothing unusual about this agreement. If MU was trading at $12 or $15 bucks at that time I would have an issue with the agreement. This is a non-issue and if the Brits had voted to stay in the EU Micron would probably be trading in the $15 to $16 range right now. The SOXL which is the semi- ETF lost over 175 on Friday and is down over 12% today. MU is doing a lot better than the over all semi sector. Heck NXPI closed at $87.36 on June 23rd and in less than 2 trading sessions is down to $74. This will pass and MU along with the rest of the sector will recover. Smart money will be adding soon.
" Barack the Muslim sympathizing slug"
Just curious how you could come to the conclusion that this comment is nothing more than someone disagreeing with Barack. Also my comment referring to the racist pig wasn't based off of this one post alone. Denny has made similar remarks toward our president in the past and this was the final one which provided me with enough evidence to reach my conclusion. You left out lying and ignorant which are also qualities of the pig! Lastly referring to someones opinion as the "truth" is a bit of a stretch and shouldn't be confused with fact.
Yes I said it and obviously I was wrong about Brexit as were many others. I still see a potential of another "$1 or $2 upside before earnings call next week." Hint the word potential as opposed to guarantee and I strongly believe if the UK vote went the other way MU could be sitting at or near $15. Don't forget this wasn't about MU exclusively the entire sector got hammered because of Brexit. The semi index was down almost 17% while MU was down less than 6%. I also see you just reinforced my belief that besides being a liar you are indeed an ignorant, racist pig!

That happens with just about every stock including the best of the best so what is your point!
You truly are a piece of work donut. I guess it wasn't as "easy" as you thought.

Bear, I'm not referring to "BREAKUP FEES" do you ever do any real research or do you just wave pom poms? Are you admitting you're pumping this and haven't so much as researched what you're buying or holding? This item is easy to find. Of course one has to be interested in due diligence and not just blowing hot air , maybe you know where that "LAW" can be found that Jaze keeps referring to.

"What do you think I'm an analyst who under threat of the "LAW" must share my work?
No I will not. Its time you actually started behaving like an investor rather than a day care attendee and start digging YOURSELF, hint, its very easy to discover."
At least he is capable of putting a complete sentence together. If you think this drop is bad wait and see what happens to the markets if the Donald is elected president. Did you hear him this morning in Scotland? Trump was talking about a lighthouse behind him and said it was in Florida before his earpiece lit up and told him he was in Scotland. What an arrogant buffoon Trump is.
