Short Sellers Flipside   15 y  
Ron Fink blogs on CFO.com
GLOBAL BUSINESS Katrina (7) The AP says the economy was hunky dory before Katrina. Boy does that make my head itch. And I’m not the only Cassandra on this point. Just see this post on James Wolcott’s blog, which I’ve excerpted below: “Over the weekend Barron’s (sub required) ran an interview with two hedge fund managers and dedicated short sellers, Lee Mikles and Mark Miller, who argued that we were at a dangerous juncture vis a vis the economy and stock market. Since short sellers benefit from falling stock prices, they’re prejudiced to the down side, but that doesn’t mean they’re wr ...   read more

FOMC still raising   15 y  
Gee, I'd a thought they could stop raising rates if their aim was to slow inflationary cycle...Katrina slowed that sysle and oil will slow the cycle by adding frieght premiums for every item shipped...I don't understand this...I need to think of the macro implications!
Fed to keep raising rates despite Katrina Thu Sep 8, 2005 6:38 PM ET Printer Friendly | Email Article | Reprints | RSS By Glenn Somerville and Alister Bull WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A swelling chorus of Federal Reserve policy-makers say the best way to help the U.S. economy heal from Hurricane Katrina is to keep inflation in check -- a sign interest rates will keep rising as planned. Less than two weeks before a September 20 scheduled meeting of the U.S. central bank’s policy-setting Federal Open Market Committee, chances the Fed might pause in its rate-rise cycle in recognit ...   read more

State Dept on Katrina   15 y  
I'd consider the source...but then again this propoganda has a twist for the stability of our economic system, and for us as citizens...WOW- did I just say that? or type that?
Washfile U.S. Economy Believed Unlikely To Be Overwhelmed by Katrina Congressional Budget Office projects temporary slowdown for rest of 2005 By Andrzej Zwaniecki and Bruce Odessey Washington File Staff Writers Washington -- The overall effects of Hurricane Katrina on the U.S. economy will be significant but not overwhelming, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says. The hurricane and subsequent flooding have devastated parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama and left thousands homeless. (See related article.) CBO’s September 6 report said the disa ...   read more

Best Article On Gas Prices   15 y  
This is an article that explains why oil is $4 a gallon. it is sane and common sense. This is the best article I have read on the relationship of crude to gasoline.
Who’s to Blame for $4-a-Gallon Gas? By Jon D. Markman RealMoney.com Contributor 9/8/2005 7:19 AM EDT Click here for more stories by Jon D. Markman Gasoline costs a lot in the U.S. today, so it just feels like a good idea to blame the big oil companies with accusations of ”gouging” and ”windfall profits.” But like most high-octane emotional reactions, this one is wrong, as you’d need to breach every tenet of capitalism to lay all the fault at the oil giants’ feet. And even if you still think they deserve a touch of anger, as investors you’re better off joining them than fi ...   read more

OH NO!X-CFO of Ben & Jerry's   15 y  
Embezzled 300k..Jeez...Oh I guess that most of our readers don't eat Jerry Garcia Cherry Ice Cream with Bing and Dark Cherries in rich creamy vanilla ice cream...not on Cure Zone! Really you'd think if he'd had serious intention he coulda gotten a Million easily...eh?
Ex-CFO of Ben & Jerry’s to Plead Guilty The former finance chief allegedly used his control of the company’s credit-card system and his control over the check-writing process to embezzle more than $300,000. Stephen Taub, CFO.com September 07, 2005 Stuart ”Mickey” Wiles, a former chief financial officer of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc., has pleaded guilty to a federal charge of wire fraud for embezzling more than $300,000 from the company, according to press reports. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Vermont stated that Wiles ”used his authority as CFO to cause company checks to be ...   read more

Insiders Selling Google?   15 y  
Insiders feel the undulations of a stock well watched, and they feel....time to take profits
Google Insiders Get Paid The financial press loves stories about insider stock activity. First, a surge in selling can be a sign that companies see, at best, an overvalued stock or, at worst, trouble ahead. Second, people read stories that connect big names with big numbers, and let’s face it, that’s about as close to fame and fortune as some of us are ever going to get. The fact that 13 Google (GOOG:Nasdaq - news - research - Cramer’s Take) insiders have, since the company’s IPO, sold off nearly $3 billion of shares without much notice is evidence that the former factor isn’t in pla ...   read more

Economics of Katrina   15 y  
We'll All See
GLOBAL BUSINESS Katrina (#4) Our research editor, Don Durfee, tells me that our latest survey of CFO confidence provides some clues as to how Katrina will affect corporate decision-making. Don touched on the findings as well as the results of his follow-up discussions with respondents in an interview with CNBC last week. But the link’s cumbersome and he’s since done some further thinking on the topic. So his views and findings are worth posting. Here are the survey’s three most relevant findings (see the first comment for some of the more compelling results of his interviews): 1. CF ...   read more

Lee; Google & Microsoft   15 y  
Microsoft & Google Rumble, off to court they go!
Microsoft, Google Rumble Redmond and Google switch competitive venues from the Internet to a Seattle courtroom. September 6, 2005 Microsoft and Google compete in a number of arenas, but on Tuesday the companies faced off in a courtroom to challenge a court order barring a former Microsoft employee from working for Google. In July, Microsoft sued Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, its former employee, to prevent him from taking a job at Google. Microsoft claimed that by taking the job, Dr. Lee would be violating a non-compete agreement he signed with Microsoft back in 2000 (see Microsoft Sues Go ...   read more

Pic of Gas Efficient Buggy   15 y  
Yes, well it is $3.03 a gallon here!
Buggymobile -- I thought now would be the perfect time to combine my Amish heritage, modern technology, and the current gas shortage. I trust all of you are doing your part to ease the burden as well. These gas prices are something else! This really is a great time for creative thinking -- unexpected challenges have always been a stimulant for innovative solutions.   read more

Top 3 Retirement Plans   15 y  
One decides based on amount of time you have until retirement, number of employees, costs involved with administration of the plan, and the highest amounts deductible!
MarketWatch Top 3 retirement plans for self-employed workers Thursday September 1, 7:14 pm ET By Robert Powell The top 3 retirement plans for the self-employed BOSTON (MarketWatch) -- Self-employment is fast becoming a way of life for many older Americans. And with good reason. Unlike most working Americans, the self-employed have the ability to use a plethora of retirement plans, including SEP, SIMPLE, 401(k) and defined benefit (or DB as they say in the pension world), to reduce taxes as well as build huge nest eggs. But how does one decide which of the alphabet soup of pla ...   read more

1 Million for Katrina   15 y  
Ny Life did their 1 Million gig to the Red Cross and now, as I guessed, others will follow- The PR is priceless and it's a tax writeoff.

Cassandra Utterance   15 y  
I think I'll take his advice since I drive one of the biggest gas guzzlers ever made- next to a truck or a hummer
COMMENT: Cassandra Utterance. Dear A-Letter Reader: When I took high school Latin, one of my teacher’s favorite phrases was ”Cassandra Utterance.” Cassandra, as you probably know, was one of the figures of the Trojan War. The daughter of King Priam, she could foresee the future. However, she was cursed in that no one took what she said seriously. For example, Cassandra said: ”You know, that wooden horse looks big enough to hide a small army in.” Instead of listening to her, the Trojans criticized Cassandra for ending a sentence with a preposition and proceeded to drag the T ...   read more

Pic of Gas in 1973?   15 y  
So I think I posted an article about 1-2 weeks ago wondering if anyone in office remembered 1973?
DRIVERS waiting in line for hours, and occasionally in vain, to fill up their tanks. Gasoline prices shooting up 50 percent or more overnight. The president urging everyone to curtail driving and conserve energy at home. Dark rumors of hoarding and market manipulation starting to spread. Economists warning that soaring energy costs will certainly slow economic growth - and maybe snuff it out completely. A New High Ahead?As those scenes played out across the country last week, they may have looked familiar, a bit like a replay of the fallout from the Arab oil embargo of 30 years ago. M ...   read more

Gas Gouging   15 y  
So we all know that California gas markets use any excuse they can to raise prices. While this particular disaster might effect us in the state of affairs BEFORE the refinement process, It should not have affected us 3 days after Katrina at 12 cents a gallon. We know that gas is the biggest game in town since the person who runs our country has a faminly fortune in this market. Since GW has been in office he has had one crisis or another that has affected the price of oil, and has inflated our eonomy substanstialy. Food prices, SDG &E, etc.
Dear Friend: The devastation along the Gulf Coast caused by Katrina and the ripple effects throughout the entire nation are tragic beyond description. What we are witnessing in Louisiana and Mississippi is the truism that when disaster strikes, the gap between rich and poor becomes a chasm. In today’s lagging economy, far too many hardworking Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, just barely getting by. In that tenuous financial condition, many families are only one tragedy away from being devastated by debt. Many of the families who have now lost their homes, livelihoods, and p ...   read more

New Orleans: What U Can DO!   15 y  
Sovereign Society Bob Bauman comments on the disaster and the real malaise of this disaster. Bob pretty much hits my nail on the head!
COMMENT: New Orleans: What YOU Can Do. Dear A-Letter Reader: Generally speaking I tend to be an introspective person, having lived a lonely interior life for most of my years (even though surrounded at times by crowds, family or friends). I tend to over-analyze, contrasting potential outcomes, comparing possible or probable results. Eventually I awake to the reality that I have very little control over most of the events swirling in my mind; that others will do as they please; that all I control, if I am lucky, is my own pitifully small sphere of existence, and that I don’t al ...   read more

NY Life donates 1M!   15 y
