Comments on: Chart of the day, global equity market edition http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/08/11/chart-of-the-day-global-equity-market-edition/ A slice of lime in the soda Sun, 26 Oct 2014 19:05:02 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: TFF http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/08/11/chart-of-the-day-global-equity-market-edition/comment-page-1/#comment-29484 Fri, 12 Aug 2011 00:50:01 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/?p=9292#comment-29484 Wow, 666? A 5% dividend from KO, 6% from PG or JNJ?

I’m salivating… I thought we were in a market environment that promised *LOW* returns, not record-breaking dividend yields!

This isn’t 2001, or even 2008. Most of the big companies have real profits, and most of those profits are generated outside the US.

We have just resumed the bear market and every big institution on Wall Street knows it. The idea that QE3 will save us is ridiculous.

Unless, I mean, people think we have in fact finally wandered upon the panacea for which all bear markets in the future will now be cured. And those same people think it was so silly of us not to have thought of this before – the whole dot com crash could have been averted had we only known about the secret of printing money.

My prediction: By Christmas we will have re-tested 666, and in short order. With the machines running rampant and totally unchecked, it’s feasible we could be down that low within six weeks. Wait and see.

European traders are stupid, American traders are brilliant. In Europe there is a monster crisis, in America no problems except a wash over from the European crisis. America is the stable fortress in the world.

Felix, this was week 1. It’s going to take a while…

Plus the fact that Europe has had the tougher go of it this this week with the French banks… let’s see what that chart looked like for the 52 wks ending July 29 or August 5 even. It’s funny you would post so assuredly on this when your usually meme is don’t watch the daily moves – as far as I’m concerned the dates are cherry-picked and not meaningful unless constrasted against weekly trends, ie different 52 wk periods.
