I Thought we Ended the Space Program....

Post  Dr. Evil on Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:55 pm

...but Obama is still shooting the moon!!

Boom! Nasdaq finally tops 5,000 again
http://money.cnn.com/2015/03/02/investing/nasdaq-hits-5000/index.html

The markets have been skyrocketing and hiring is really taking off.  Too bad we have such stringent term limits.

Obama's strong dollar sure hurt my grain markets but luckily I have one leg on both sides of the fence.

Obama's poll numbers are way down. The stock market has always mirrored his poll numbers (inversely proportional to).

They are way down?

Since when is 45% way down? I'd also like some proof of those "way down" numbers because the facts don't support your assertion.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/116479/barack-obama-presidential-job-approval.aspx

Sure its not 70% like it used to be when he first became elected, but 45% is still better than most.

Congress approval rating is still abysmal, at 15%~.

Here's an interesting comparison: http://www.gallup.com/poll/116677/presidential-approval-ratings-gallup-historical-statistics-trends.aspx

It doesn't appear that Obama's numbers are off par.

I see our in house financial adviser is gazing into his cracked crystal ball again. Suspect

Reason #1 the stock market is going up is because of corporations repurchasing their stock. By doing so they remove shares from the market, reducing supply and increasing price. By law, companies eventually have to do something with their cash reserves to avoid tax penalties. Since many don't distribute dividends anymore and economic growth is still slow they've turned to repurchasing their own stock. Avoids tax penalties and makes their stock worth more.

Reason #2 the stock market is going up is many foreign central banks are parking their bloated currencies from their quantitative easing programs in the stock market. Bloomberg reports that of 23% of central bankers surveyed stated that their bank owns shares in the US stock market and are considering more purchases. The Bank of Japan, the Bank of Israel, Swiss National Bank and the Czech National Bank currently have 10% of their reserves in stocks. affraid

Out side of sequestration (austerity), very little Obama has done has had any impact on the dollar. He's been mostly sitting on the sidelines (surprise, surprise).

While our economy is still limping along, compared to our trading partners in Europe and Japan, we are going gang busters, boosting Wall Street and creating a safe haven for foreign capital.

Our trade balance has improved dramatically, due mostly to the boom in private U.S. oil and natural gas production which have dropped domestic energy prices and reduced U.S. imports. When you keep more dollars at home, a smaller trade gap occurs and the dollar increases in value.

While debt is still soaring, the deficit has shrunk due to sequestration (Obama's idea) and increased tax revenues due to an improving economy, all good news for a stronger dollar.

And while interest rates are still low (10-year U.S. Treasury yield, at 2.08% on 3/02/15) they beat the crap out of equivalent yields in Europe. German 10-year bund yields 0.36% and Japan where a 10 year bond yields 0.37%. The higher interest rates here in the US means US Treasuries are more attractive to foreign investors and creates yet another safe haven for foreign capital.

You can throw your entire diversionary post away except the one highlighted paragraph. That's right, the good ol' USofA is the premier investment spot in the world right now. Why is that? It's because of the steps we took to properly stabilize or economy. Crickers Gomezz, even Forbes is lauding Obama's performance.

Diversionary? WTF? You wet yourself over the NASDAQ cracking 5,000 but remain clueless as to why. I give you the facts but obviously that's overloaded your frontal lobes.

As for your Forbes article (I thought you always bashed Forbes when I use them for a source) Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge destroys Hartung's fantasy world with .... oh my ...... the facts. Read it and weep:

By law, companies eventually have to do something with their cash reserves to avoid tax penalties. Since many don't distribute dividends anymore and economic growth is still slow they've turned to repurchasing their own stock. Avoids tax penalties and makes their stock worth more.

And where did these cash reserves come from?  Record profits.  How do you get record profits?  By people being willing to spend their hard earned money.  How do you get people to spend their hard earned money?  In our near term, post Great Recession era people needed to feel comfortable that our government wasn't going to allow the rug to be pulled out from under them as Republicans suggested we should have done.  

Reason #2 the stock market is going up is many foreign central banks are parking their bloated currencies from their quantitative easing programs in the stock market. Bloomberg reports that of 23% of central bankers surveyed stated that their bank owns shares in the US stock market and are considering more purchases. The Bank of Japan, the Bank of Israel, Swiss National Bank and the Czech National Bank currently have 10% of their reserves in stocks. affraid

Agreed, we are offering a better environment to stash their money.

Out side of sequestration (austerity), very little Obama has done has had any impact on the dollar. He's been mostly sitting on the sidelines (surprise, surprise).


Obama was squarely behind our QE programs which IMO had a larger side effect than the actual intended purpose.  Our temporary cheap dollar was huge for exports and added a mountain of much needed stimulus.  


While our economy is still limping along, compared to our trading partners in Europe and Japan, we are going gang busters, boosting Wall Street and creating a safe haven for foreign capital.

Our trade balance has improved dramatically, due mostly to the boom in private U.S. oil and natural gas production which have dropped domestic energy prices and reduced U.S. imports. When you keep more dollars at home, a smaller trade gap occurs and the dollar increases in value.

Our cheap dollar played a huge role in that, making our commodity and energy sectors very attractive to potential buyers.  Our trade balance is going to have a tough row to hoe though now with our much stronger dollar.  Our energy and commodities are going to suffer.

While debt is still soaring, the deficit has shrunk due to sequestration (Obama's idea) and increased tax revenues due to an improving economy, all good news for a stronger dollar.

A+ for Obama there.

And while interest rates are still low (10-year U.S. Treasury yield, at 2.08% on 3/02/15) they beat the crap out of equivalent yields in Europe. German 10-year bund yields 0.36% and Japan where a 10 year bond yields 0.37%. The higher interest rates here in the US means US Treasuries are more attractive to foreign investors and creates yet another safe haven for foreign capital.

Again, we are back to having created a wonderful environment to entice outside money.

Congress approval rating is still abysmal, at 15%~.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/180113/2014-approval-congress-remains-near-time-low.aspx


According to your link Obama's job disapproval rating is 50%.

!) When the President (or for that matter any incumbent's) approval rating drops below 50% it is not considered a good thing.

2) When a President's (or for that matter any incumbent's) disapproval numbers are larger than his approval numbers it is not considered a good thing.

Good or not, Obama's numbers are actually quite standard at his place in his presidency. Sorry if that doesn't support your thesis.

That's correct. Note fumb duck, typical or not, I stated that any incumbent (which includes Dems, Rep, Commies, Fascists, etc) that polls under 50% is not considered a good thing especially when his/her disapproval rating is larger than his/her approval. Sighhhhhhhhh. Sleep

They are way down?

Since when is 45% way down? I'd also like some proof of those "way down" numbers because the facts don't support your assertion.

Sure its not 70% like it used to be when he first became elected, but 45% is still better than most.

Congress approval rating is still abysmal, at 15%~.

According to your link Obama's job disapproval rating is 50%.

!) When the President (or for that matter any incumbent's) approval rating drops below 50% it is not considered a good thing.

2) When a President's (or for that matter any incumbent's) disapproval numbers are larger than his approval numbers it is not considered a good thing.

Time to hit the reset button Nicci.

Good or not, Obama's numbers are actually quite standard at his place in his presidency.  Sorry if that doesn't support your thesis.

That's correct. Note fumb duck, typical or not, I stated that any incumbent (which includes Dems, Rep, Commies, Fascists, etc) that polls under 50% is not considered a good thing especially when his/her disapproval rating is larger than his/her approval. Sighhhhhhhhh. Sleep

Agreed, we should always ask for more of our elected officials. The status quo just isn't enough.

That isn't what I said but thanks for that spin. Rolling Eyes Frankly I don't want any more of the Great and Wondrous "O". If he finished off his term playing golf in Hawaii, I'd be ok with that.

Sorry I missed your mark, let me take another stab at it:

We should be asking for more from Obama than what we've gotten from past Presidents.  The status quo just isn't enough.

I agree with that as well.
