  • Any day now the "market" will wake up and say, "What the "F" happened. And Spy will say, "I don't know but I'm only half of what I used to be".

    The statement coming from the Federal Reserve Bank (Fed) of San Francisco might come as a shock to stock market perma-bulls, but certain hedge fund players won’t be surprised, as it’s all part of a mathematical modeling of where this economy could be heading. Updating their previous economic projections, the central bank researchers are nearly cutting in half the forward looking price / earnings ratio projections on stocks based on key U.S. demographic shifts. The retirement of the baby boomers is expected to severely cut U.S. stock values in the near future,” economic research from the San Francisco Fed proclaimed. The most recent research builds on 2011 modeling from from San Francisco Fed researcher Zheng Liu and Vice President of the Economic Research Department Mar

  • "Technology usually hasn't been the first thing on board members' minds," said Jeff Cunningham, an Arizona State University professor, former publisher of Forbes and founder/editor in chief of Directorship magazine. "But that's changing." Cybersecurity is just the latest worry that has thrust greater responsibilities on corporate directors — the men and women who sit on the boards of Arizona public companies and those around the nation. A shift to increased scrutiny already had been under way, with shareholders and other outsiders checking to see how boards set executive pay, comply with ever-increasing regulations, open their ranks to more women and ethnic minorities, and deal with other issues. Bottom line - FireEye now in the catbird seat, signing up mega million deals as we post.

  • Well he didn't exactly say that but he did say something interesting. And I think it was a bit of a lie, since Sony is facing escalating law suits over its weak network security program. Sony CEO Lynton claimed the FBI told him "90% of all other companies would of been hacked" the same way Sony was. Now I don't buy that for a minute since Sony will ill prepared for North Korea's hack attack. And Lynton could be throwing things out that are inaccurate to protect his behind and Sony's piggy bank from pending law suits.

    But if true that 90% of other companies would of been ill prepared for N.K hack or in fact would of been penetrated and damaged very badly - then what does that say about future customers for FireEye. What it says is there is now a HUGE number of corporations that will be contacting FireEye for added network security protection. We're talking thousands of companies that will want Feye cyber security protection going forward. And certainly not after N.K. or someone else tries the same hack job.

    If Sony did in fact hire FireEye for future cyber security protection, then FireEye is set to rocket higher revenue wise and stock wise. You read it here first.

  • Seriously - Sony just picked FireEye over all other cyber security protection companies yet FireEye is just a third of the price of Palo Alto Networks. It doesn't make sense unless FireEye is not getting the contracts - revenue competitors are getting. Everyone here is pumping FireEye while its under $35 a share. I say "why is it under $35 a share"? Either its a diamond in the rough ready to shine when polished or its a dog that will be a dog today and next year. Personally I think management needs to some more "Major Deals" with some big time companies and then Publicize the hell out of it.

    Sony was literally backed against a wall and who did they call to correct their internal security network problems? FireEye. Now that a huge plum for Feye and a good start for more deals. Let's hope Feye management kicks into 5th gear as more and more companies need Feye security protection. Monday should be interesting. Either we jump over $35 and climb into the week or slip back. I'm in the camp that say's the stock has room to move higher but want to see Feye management put the metal to the petal.

    Yea its "hot" now but will it be front page news come Monday? FireEye needs to break out on the "up side" and stop trading in the $28 to $32 range. I mean this stock is beaten down yet the company's business (cyber security protection" is front and center in DEMAND. If FireEye management can't move this stock into the $40's and beyond they all should be tared and feathered. Staples just got hit with a massive hack and who knows who is next but FireEye better keep climbing or its just another "hype" company that is here today and gone tomorrow.

    Greece Threatening Default

    That would sure make Merkel happy since deep down she hates the Greeks and their 3 day work week. Germany economy could be in full blown recession if Russia collapse and Greece asks for another 300 billion Euro bailout.

    FOR an election in which so much is at stake, the atmosphere in the first-round voting in Greece’s presidential election on December 17th was almost humdrum. As predicted, Stavros Dimas, the only candidate for the head of state’s largely ceremonial job, failed to gain the needed two-thirds majority, winning just 160 of Greece’s 300 parliamentary deputies. Mr Dimas's allies, including Evangelos Venizelos, the foreign minister (pictured), are growing worried. Should Mr Dimas’s backers fail to win over enough deputies by the third and final vote on December 29th, Greece must hold a snap general election. If current polls are to be believed, that could bring to power a radical left-wing government which would reopen the cursed issue of Greece’s public debt that first precipitated the euro crisis.

    So now when does Greece go Bankrupt or renege on their massive debt payback???

  • Maybe its worn out from climbing for two days or maybe the Yellen/Santa rally ends today as the market knows higher rates coming mid-2015.

  • Russia’s surprise interest-rate increase failed to stop the plummeting ruble. The next weapon available to repair economic havoc caused by sanctions and falling oil prices: selling gold.

    $1299 Year's End Close

    More like $299 bone head. Fed going to raise rates soon, half of Europe and Russia will be selling gold holdings to keep there economy a float and as the dollar strengthens GLD will head for low double digits. No one wants gold is a "major gold correction".

  • If your not aware, Russia has just started dumping gold as fast as they can to hold off the demise of the ruble. GLD sub $110 tomorrow after Fed news and under $100 by Christmas. Russia will flood the market with gold sales, which will push the yellow metal way, way down. Its going to get really ugly going forward for gold bugs.

  • Man, it free falling now with no floor in sight. Must be scary stuff if you bought Spy over $200 a share.

  • Now that would make "Short" Santa very happy.

  • Of course tomorrow Yellen will be the one butchering the Bull. Rocky Mountain Oysters anyone.

  • Might even see a double tomorrow if you buy is soon.

  • as in burning (long) spy trades going up in flames.

  • and I like everyone else is sick and tired of these bogus 3, 4 month extensions. Not sure who wins if nothing changes and a delayed extension kicks in, but come March, April next year Republicans will control both houses. Dems might want to do a year long deal now or deal with the majority early next year.

    Ouch - hopefully you have some other (winning) gold trades to make up Friday loss. I hate it when you get it right with the Swiss vote - gold rejection yet gold climbs today like nothing happened at all. I'm guessing the India (gold) news late Friday threw everything upside down. But I still thought the Switzerland news/vote would push gold lower today - this week. Crazy stuff.

  • I mean there must of been a ton of investors last week/Friday betting gold would drop due to Swiss (gold rejection vote on Sunday. I was one who did not short gold last week, but would of bet the house the Swiss vote would of knocked gold/GLD way down if Swiss voters rejected bogus gold "buying" standard. In any case what's up is down now and what's down is up, until we right ourselves tomorrow.

  • Something tells me Spy is going to fall hard Monday - next week

    The crowds of bargain hunters that rush through store doors the day after Thanksgiving have thinned out. U.S. shoppers spent $9.1 billion at stores on Black Friday, according to data out Saturday from research firm ShopperTrak. That's a drop of 7 percent compared with the same day last year.

    Spy Longs set for a very "bleak" December
