6. The Return of King Dollar
- Wednesday, October 01, 2014
The market’s game ball in the third quarter goes to the U.S. dollar. The U.S. dollar rose 7 percent, boosted by the comparative hawkishness of the U.S. Fed. The currency has now advanced for 11 consecutive weeks, its longest winning streak in nearly 20 years (although the uptrend actually started in mid-2011). What should you know about the return of King Dollar?
7. The Dollar Strikes Back
- Wednesday, September 03, 2014

10. Big Changes Ahead for Frequent Fliers on Delta
- Thursday, February 27, 2014
DALLAS (AP) – Delta Air Lines is changing its frequent-flier program to favor passengers who buy the priciest tickets instead of those who fly the most miles.
It's a bid to lure higher-spending business travelers, who often book flights on short notice and pay more than bargain-hunting leisure travelers.
11. That’s Entertainment
- Saturday, January 25, 2014
It was late in Game 6 of the Grizzlies’ 2013 playoff series with the Los Angeles Clippers. Already, FedExForum was abuzz with anticipation. The hated Clippers were about to go down. Grizz, the team’s chest-thumping mascot, scaled a ladder inside the arena and unfurled a banner:
12. It Pays to Look Forward
- Wednesday, January 08, 2014
The thundering herd that carried the equity markets into the record books in 2013 seemed spooked by the first few trading days of 2014. Should we read into this?
Perhaps, but it more likely indicates portfolio rebalancing rather than a widespread repositioning of wagers. Those rebalancing their portfolios need to sell stocks to provide currency to replenish underperforming asset classes. For those that shifting wagers, what new bets might pay off in 2014?

14. Soulful Synergy
- Saturday, December 07, 2013
What happened at the corner of McLemore Avenue and College Street in the 1960s is nothing short of extraordinary.
At the crossroads of segregated neighborhoods in South Memphis, two white business partners would open the doors wide to whites and blacks alike, who congregated to write and record songs that would set off a soul explosion heard around the world.

19. King Kong Versus Godzilla
- Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Among attentive investors the recent bout of market volatility has reprised fears of country, currency, economic decline and general market collapse. When global macro-market events occur, large trading positions that have been spooling quickly unspool, leading to jarring movements like those we are witnessing in Japan. These environments become a bit of a predator’s ball, as short-term traders feast on volatility, which only amplifies volatility further.
20. Safe Can Sometimes Become Risky
- Wednesday, June 05, 2013
When is safe unsafe? Ever since the Federal Reserve began its zero interest rate policies, investors have searched for higher yielding assets. This makes sense. If you need income to run your household or make your pension distributions, you must locate investments that provide yield. If Treasury bonds will not, what will?
21. The No-Growth Rally
- Friday, May 03, 2013
Over 200 S&P 500 companies have now reported earnings. While 70 percent or so have beaten expectations, the blended earnings growth rate has basically flat lined. Using revenues as a purer gauge adds little encouragement. Revenues have also flat lined over the last year. Without an uptick in global economic activity or the ability to pass on price increases to customers, US earnings look winded. How can the rally persist without growth?

- Wednesday, April 10, 2013

24. The Cyprus is Falling!
- Thursday, March 28, 2013
The Cyprus economy is $23 billion. (The Vermont economy is $26 billion.) Bank loans in Cyprus are eight times the size of GDP, compared with 3.5 times in the Eurozone and 1 times U.S. GDP. With leverage ratio’s that high, a small deterioration in loan performance can render the banking system insolvent.
25. Let’s Start a Currency War
- Wednesday, February 06, 2013
Prior to Nixon’s closing of the gold window in 1971, world currencies traded in value relative to the U.S. dollar, which was tethered to gold at $35 an ounce. Following the divorce, currencies began trading relative to the dollar, but the dollar in turn began trading relative to other currencies.

30. Facts, Feelings Go Hand in Hand
- Thursday, August 23, 2012
Investment Lesson: Sentiment Growth just as good as Earnings Growth Two factors move stock prices, earnings and sentiment. Earnings tend to be backward looking while sentiment tends to be forward looking. In market parlance, multiples or valuation ratios (price/earnings, price/book, price/sales) measure sentiment. Stocks prices increase when earnings increase, sentiment increases or both increase.

- Wednesday, July 04, 2012
June: Boon & Lampoon After taking body blows in May, the stock market had its best June since 1999. This time, we can credit European politicians rather than American central bankers for the strong finish. That, my friends, is a welcome change.

36. Riding High
- Friday, March 09, 2012
The traditional enclosed shopping mall is supposedly a retail relic, a throwback to the days when most consumer buying activity occurred behind bricks and mortar.

37. Rates Down, Money Up Across Globe
- Tuesday, March 06, 2012
Money Money Money Money To address declines in economic activity and stimulate marketplace liquidity, central banks across the globe have taken rates down and the quantity of money up. In fact, the leading global central bank balance sheets are approaching an unprecedented $9 trillion, or nearly 15 percent of global GDP.
38. Economic Coordinates Mark Spot
- Wednesday, February 08, 2012
Economic advances contain fits and starts. Our “spider senses” lead us to believe that the data received up to this point correlate more with a mid-cycle slowdown than with a late-cycle contraction. To help us with orientation, let’s examine a few economic markers to vector in on our location.

45. These Three Things
- Wednesday, July 27, 2011
Thing 1: Earnings As we entered earnings season, anxiety centered primarily on the financial sector given the feeble U.S. economy, stagnant housing markets and low financial market activity. The tapestry of earnings information provided by financials to date has well exceeded these low expectations. Certain surprises, such as American Express members’ record card usage, merit applause. Within more traditional lending institutions, loss provisions have ebbed. Commercial loan growth contributed to earnings in the quarter, and volumes have now grown for eight straight months. Beyond financials, high concerns around tech earnings have also abated, with 21 of 22 reports to date ahead of estimates. Overall, of the 121 S&P 500 companies that have reported, 101 have beaten estimates. Revenues have also surprised skeptics, climbing more than 10 percent overall.
46. Debt Debate Will Soon Pass
- Wednesday, July 20, 2011
Welcome Back, Ben. All hail the Bernanke put! Markets rallied strongly Wednesday, July 13, as Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke hinted at the potential for additional monetary easing should high unemployment and deflation threats persist. Since the greatest achievement of QE2 was the rapid rise in equity prices, talk of additional easing elated Wall Street. Gold rallied to a new nominal high, and oil seems determined to reclaim $100. Whether the Fed resumes sizable asset purchases or not, by indicating their willingness to do so, they have underpinned asset prices.

48. Simmer Down Now
- Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Rational behavior reintroduced itself in the markets last week as the commodities market came off spin cycle. With the dust settling, we find oil back at $100, copper at $4, gold at $1,500 and the S&P 500 at 1340 – not far from where we were a month or so ago.
49. A Tale Of Two Seasons
- Tuesday, May 10, 2011
With another successful earnings season now largely behind us, last week ushered in expectations season with plenty of crosscurrents to fret over. Higher retail sales clashed with lower GDP growth, falling commodity prices accompanied a sell-off in stocks, Treasury yields fell while the Fed inflates and the best monthly job report in years accompanied an uptick in the unemployment rate.
50. Next Stop: The Debt Ceiling Debate

58. Gold: Supply vs. Demand
- Tuesday, September 28, 2010
GOLD! Gold hit $1,300 an ounce last week. What is gold? Why is it valuable? What determines its value? What makes prices rise and fall? Good questions. Unfortunately, each answer is quite complicated. Unlike stocks or bonds, where the inputs into price and valuation remain pretty consistent (interest rates, earnings, sentiment, inflation), the inputs for gold seem to fluctuate. Ask five people why gold is climbing and you will likely get ten different answers. Let’s start with the fundamentals:

- Tuesday, June 22, 2010
In Friday’s Wall Street Journal, Alan Greenspan warned the U.S. government against continued profligacy by comparing the U.S. and Greece. Ouch!
