What does "officially" mean here?
Does this mean the only CEO remaining is the one under a cloud of suspicion (CCTV scandal)? How is that a good thing?
There is nowhere else for money to go except US and China stocks. Both will be big winners over the next few months. I hope you are fully invested.
A sales tax is regressive. Advocates for the poor and class warriors will never allow the income tax to be eliminated. I've even read talk of a "wealth tax": if you are worth more than $1M in assets, you would pay 1 or 2% of your assets every year. This is going to pick up more support as long as the rich continue to get richer.
This is a strawman. The allegation has always been that illegals don't pay income tax and, often, do not pay social security, UI, and other payroll taxes. Nobody can consistently avoid paying sales taxes, and I've never seen that alleged.
It's definitely not priced in. Europe is up something like 20% over the past 16 weeks. Almost everyone expects Europe to make every concession possible to Greece. I expect they'll get all the bailout money they need without needing to make any more austerity measures.
Not going to see a correction unless we get a black swan event such as Greece being kicked out of the euro zone. If you're short, Friday was the ideal chance to cover and go long.
It's always amusing when a blogger asserts that "X has Y running scared" without offering any shred of proof. They may as well write "I support X and despise Y, and will say anything to make you think the same way."
The Daily Mail article quotes him as saying 'I haven't bought it yet, I'm about to do that Monday.... My car is down.' Maybe it wasn't stolen, but bolting from the car before the officer had time to check doesn't give the impression that he was innocent. Can't blame the officer for giving chase.
Nothing in what you quoted says anything about whether the car was stolen. We know from the dash video that the car was not his, but that he was "considering" buying it.
Earnings don't matter. Free money matters, and as long as we have marginal economic news, the market will continue to go up. Funds have nowhere better to put their assets than into equities.
Almost every 52-week high is followed by another 52-week high. Stocks are going MUCH higher from here.
