Wow....much better. It seems Bill is purchasing more treasuries, so I was thinking the div is going to be lower all yr . After all,, the treasuries aren't paying out much. Wonder if he bought some apple bonds.
Monetary easing definately stopped us from going into a deeper recession. Lower interest ratec helped business borrow at a lower rate, thus hiring more, people purchased more homes, cars, toys etc. All this demand created more jobs.
People moved money to stocks which gave companies more money to work with. This was the Feds intention.
The conservative investor is the person who lost out. This week I heard some senators are worried the middle class is going to dwindle more because they are making nothing on interest and a negative return after tax and inflation. They say if this continues, only the lower and upper class will still exist.
Heck...if i was still young and lived in Penna. I'd never have to work.
An unwed mother of two who makes less than 29K gets 40K in entitlements....more if you make less.
Can't beat that. I think the Gov should worry more about these handouts and less about how to cut my SS COLA and medicare when I get it..
This has nothing to do with your question....but wait until Obamacare kicks in next year. As its getting closer, more companies and ins companies are learning things they don't like. For every person a company insures, they have to pay an extra $64 that goes to Ocare. The companies will probably just pass the cost onto us.
Combined they will control 2/3 of flights at Reagan/Wash airport, which will cut competition. When United/Continental merged they had to give up some slots at airports too. So, this will probably help JBLU..
