Biderman’s Daily Edge 5/31/2012: Why Stocks Declined in May

May
31

I did a video May 8 entitled Sell in May and Then Go Away, in which I suggested that stocks this May would sell off for the third straight May. I was right. US stocks are down over 4% since then. The reason for the decline this May is pretty much the same as in May 2010 and May 2011. It is all about supply and demand: More shares chasing less money. Read More

Warning: “The Great Bank Run Is Coming”

You don’t need an Einstein IQ to realize the world needs an economic ambulance. Just click on your TV set or scan the pages of your local paper and the message is loud and clear: the global economies are turning increasingly sour, what with U.S. economic data turning softer, China slowing and the Eurozone undergoing a deepening recession. In brief, it’s getting a lot scarier out there on Main Street, although you would be hard pressed to convince Wall Street of that fact, given the stock market’s vigor this year. Read More

Biderman’s Daily Edge 5/29/2012: Europe’s Silly Sollution & Failures of State and Local Governments

May

Today there are two stories that describe the coming financial train wreck ahead — here and in Europe. Bloomberg quoted Mikel Echavarren, who heads a Madrid-based finance company as saying, “Spain has engaged in a policy of delay and pray. The problem has not been quantified by anyone because there is huge pressure not to tell the truth.” Today there are two stories that describe the coming financial train wreck ahead — here and in Europe.

Gold May Never Trade As Low AS $1,300 Again, Says Leibovit

Talking about gold with Mark Leibovit, one of the country’s dogged and frequently controversial gold trackers, is never dull or boring. Unlike many of his peers, Leibovit, a long-term gold bull, has no qualms about shouting fire when he thinks the price of the metal is headed south. You never know what he’s going to say or when he’ll occasionally shock you with some seemingly strange, off-the-wall forecast. Here’s a case in point. During a chat we had in September of 2009, just a few days after the price of the precious metal had just topped $1,000 an ounce on inflation worries and a weakening dollar, he suddenly struck me with the kind of talk you might expect from the strait-jacket crowd. “We will never see gold again below $1,000 in our lifetime.” he told me.

Biderman’s Daily Edge 5/23/2012: Zuckerberg Swings and Misses – Could He Still Hit Home Run?

May

By now there is no question that the Facebook IPO was totally screwed up. Not only was just about every aspect of the deal FUBARed, but the overall size of the deal, $18 billion, magnified the mess. Yes, Nasdaq and Morgan Stanley both did a horrible job. But ultimately the blame for the disaster is solely on Facebooks 27 year old CEO Mark Zuckerberg. All final decisions regarding each aspect of the IPO had to be made by Zuckerberg. That is what CEOs do. Read More
