So can market handle a three month warning of first rate hike in 7 years??? And can Yellen handle no longer living under Ben Bernanke skirt? We find out very soon,
There are verifiable facts and supported by Russia and China aggression over land and sea. The bigger question is - does the world care or does the stock market care? Guess we have to have a full fledged Russian invasion deep into Ukraine or China shoot down a U.S. or Japanese military aircraft for world markets to wake up and smell WAR.
Germany holds the cards and Germany wants Greece OUT.
Schaeuble said there was no reason to talk about a Plan B or a third aid package. Schaeuble said discussions revolved around Greece's fulfilment of the current aid programme and there was no need to speculate about a "Plan B". As in 'pay back your billions in IOU's and once that is done we might talk about lend you a few coins to keep going past August.
So who do you believe when IMF, EU, ECB all say they have no plan to help or support Greece while Varoufakis and Tsipras claim a deal is getting closer. Personally I think the Greek Prime Minister and Finance Minister are lying through their teeth, since they still think this is some poker game they can play with a lousy hand.
The Greek economy is bleeding #$%$22.3m a day. Every day that passes without a bail-out agreement is resulting in more lost jobs and greater destruction of growth potential, according to figures from the Hellenic Confederation of Commerce and Enterprise, The impasse has caused an average 59 small businesses to shut up shop and 613 jobs to be lost every single day for the last four months, the ESEE says.
How far down the rabbit hole can Greece go before there is no escape?
Its over boys and next week the market wakes up and smells a Major Euro crash in Europe as the Greeks leave and yell "so long for good and we ain't paying back a dime".
We need to get Elizabeth Warren. She not only takes on Obama and wins, she would kick Hilliary's behind if she ran. Unfortunately she's a little to honest to run and of course hates big banks and possibly Wall Street. Going to be an ugly election next year with Jeb Bush thinking the Iraq war was a good thing (Idiot) and Hillary heading for 70 years old and wondering why Bill isn't home at night. What a sad situation.
because our President thinks everyone has a right to blow up their neighbor.
David Rothkopf, CEO and editor of the group that publishes Foreign Policy magazine, weighed in on the implications of this, saying that Saudi Arabia's expression of intent to match Iran's nuclear development is a bigger blow to Obama's summit than King Salman's absence. Can't wait for Obama to send Kerry over to Israel again so the Israelis can tar and feather him.
Just bought - Market no longer cares about bogus rate cuts when the China economy is in a free fall and gaining speed on the downward sign.
either a buyout offer or a serious earning beat at next quarterly report
Feye is a top 2 or 3 cyber security company. I'll put Palo Alto network a head of them but no one else.
The stock is some what dirt cheap since it was near $96 a share in March 2014
Management finally has got things straight pushing revenue higher and higher as stock slowly climbs
Feye is a flat out take over target and some here would assume Feye management built the company for reason of a eventual takeover.
Fireeye in ht last six months has signed some big contracts with Fortune 500 companies who are all get hacked by cyber security attacks. Russia, North Korea, China, Iran, and who knows who else is hell bent on hacking and destroying the U.S. online service/internet service as we know it. Confidential records are flying out the the bad guys while companies are now forced to protect confidential records or get sued in the event of a hack attack.
Its buy time boys and girls so you Better Act Quick.
Greece faces a punishing debt repayment schedule in coming weeks, owing another 1.5 billion euros to the IMF in June and then another three billion euros to the European Central Bank (ECB) in July and August.
And this time Greece can't withdraw 750 million from its rainy day IMF fund - which it now is paying very high interest on. Greeks think they can hold out longer then the IMF, ECB, Eurogroup while scrounging for money from under a rock. When the "Default" hits it will come fast and hard and pull Europe into a massive sink hole they might never get out of. But its better to take the hit now for the rest of Europe then keep kicking the can down the road with Greece which only know how to spend money yet never pay back a dime.
Ahh - Let them eat cake and retire at 50 with very nice European pension.
and we thought they were just little green men that came out in a full moon. HA
Yea - New Beginning being a lap dog to Putin and his new and improved pipe line through Turkey and Greece that might never be built. Starting to think Argentina is now in way way better shape then Greece and at least they do kiss up to communist countries like Greece does.
Economists now say foreign investments and business activity in Greece is non-existent amid renewed uncertainty over whether Greece may default or leave the eurozone altogether. And "Please" remember Spy longs - Greece in less then a month has to pay the IMF 3 Billion dollars they don't have. 3 Billion smackers that they won't be able to find under the mattress or inside a Greek pita sandwich.
For all intents and purposes Greece is now "Dead Man Walking" with massvie IOU's that will never be paid back.
and will never pay back a dime. So long $211 and hello $200. Ouch
