and can't buy it way out of a bag through lousy take overs and acquisitions. Could KO see $39 at open today. Many think so.
Gee those Chinese Govt folks thought they could walk the dog down slowly by inflating their GDP numbers. When in reality the dog got eaten for dinner and now Futures are down over 100 points and the China Economy goes into a Free Fall.
Troops from the rival Koreas exchanged gunfire Sunday along their heavily fortified border in the second such shooting in less than 10 days, South Korean officials said. There were no reports of injuries or property damage, but the 50 minutes of shooting highlighted rising tensions between the divided countries. North Korea might just attack South Korea as Ukraine Crisis, ISIS war and Ebola virus all gain in world opinion.
Apple can't live off iPhone sales all by themselves. And what has Apple shown for the past 4 years other in a bigger screen iPhone. Nothing else Dude. Cook might have decent numbers as far as iPhone sales but he knows going forward Apple doesn't have much if anything in its bag of tricks.
Blah, Blah, Blah. Fed can't stop ISIS, Ebola, Putin, China Meltdown, etc. Market opens green but realizes the Fed is now a bystander with only rubber bullets. Market sells off into close but might still finish green. Buy way off its highs.
and it just told everyone its economy outlook for 2015 is plain awful. As in possible recession. So how does Europe keep afloat (Greece, Portugal, Spain, Italy) when Germany comes out and says "Our Economy is in Major Decline and No Longer Will Prop Up Weak European Countries". Euro going straight down and take U.S. economy with it.
Actually a gift this morning since the Futures Spike is based on nothing of substance while Germany just signals a major decline in growth for all of next year. If market can't see dark clouds over China economy and very dark clouds over Europe economy then market is blind as a bat.
and tells the rest of Europe (we are taking you with us) since German Government won't do a stupid Q.E. Market in major head fake this morning since overseas new is extremely negative.
and some what weak. JPM red, WFC flat, C slightly up but corruption in Mexican unit. Gee ain't all this fantastic news. NOPE And going forward more companies will miss or report weak forward guidance. Market might open green but at close it will be major RED again.
Going to get real Ugly.
On Sunday, protest leaders vowed to continue their occupation of city streets after the Chinese territory's leader soundly rejected their demands. Hong Kong's chief executive also called their movement "out of control" and said it could not last very long. Protesters Sunday voiced defiance after Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying said there was 'zero chance' of meeting their demands. In an interview with TVB, Hong Kong's Beijing-approved leader said China would never rescind its decision against open nomination of candidates for the chief executive post.
Leung also dismissed protester demands that he resign for allegedly failing to uphold Hong Kong's constitution, the Basic Law.
Bulls in Major Denial. They still think everything goes straight up, Yellen will lay dove eggs forever and interest rates will stay low well into 2030. Bulls can't handle reality and tomorrow they wake up holding their tail and wondering how they lost a set. HA
Output and new orders were both revised down
Meanwhile, the employment and price sub-indices were revised up,
And as Europe goes into a free fall recession China says "we know longer can support any other country, much less ourselves". It Bubble Bursting time in China and the Chinese Government knows it.
Market tanks tomorrow - Pro-democracy protesters took to the streets Tuesday in a growing confrontation with China over the financial hub's future as either an enclave of freedom or another communist-controlled city.
Some protesters are already labeling the movement "the umbrella revolution" for the umbrellas many are holding to deflect pepper spray and tear gas that was lobbed by police on Sunday night.
That fueled even more protesters to come out in force Monday. Tens of thousands of young demonstrators blocked what are normally some of Hong Kong's busiest streets.
"It's the 'umbrella revolution,'" said Emily Pang, 24, a cricket club receptionist who planned to stay overnight in the streets beside one of many barricades. "I have to protect our Hong Kong," she said. The protest was sparked by anger over China's refusal to allow the open selection of candidates for Hong Kong's leader, called the chief executive, in the city's first democratic election scheduled for 2017. Instead, a panel will pick two or three candidates to run. At stake is not just the election but the future of the former British colony as a semiautonomous city and the prospect of the pro-democracy movement spreading to the mainland.
"This is anything but a flash in the pan," said Scott Harold, a political scientist at RAND Corp. Beijing wants to crack down on the protests so that Hong Kong's political freedoms don't "infect" the rest of the country, he said.
Wall Street is also watching the protests nervously, as the world's second-largest economy can make global markets shudder. The Dow initially plunged 170 points early Monday before mostly recovering by day's end.

Seems little Putin is upset with U.S. and Europe sanctions. So now (tomorrow) its pay back time. Spy falls 10% and doesn't know what hit it. Then next week it collapses under multiple world crisis.
and you know Exxon would be first in line to be swallowed up by Putin and his KGB buddies.
and you know the onslaught continues tomorrow as Apple trades down into the low $90's. Casing problem, software problems and weak Senior Management will push this stock way, way lower.
since news could break over the weekend that Apple is delaying future shipments of iPhone 6, until they figure out who is to blame for such a cheap aluminum smartphone casing. Only chance Apple could rise next week is if Cook resigns and takes blame for one of the biggest Apple disasters in the history of the company,
and got a full refund on his iPhone purchase. Seem this Apple customer didn't want another defective iPhone and instead demanded his money back (in full). Apple had no choice to oblige the customer since the Apple Rep said "I returned my iPhone last week" for the same reason this customer did. Cheap frame equates to return iPhone that its seems "no one wants".
