On Monday we talked about beliefs.  Here is a model for you to emulate.

Re: Debt.  Relax.  The World's Biggest Debtor Is Going To Guarantee Everyone’s Debt. 
Re: Equities. Relax.  The financial world is going to accept a 15% ++ premium of stock prices over ‘fair value’  *
Re: Economy.  Relax.  Although “the U.S. economy has been fully financialized, and so costs are unaffordable”, a segment of the population can always support the rest of the economy through increased taxation.

Just as we can forecast earnings for a stock, we can also use aggregated earnings to price the S&P 500. From those earnings we can determine if the current price is rich or cheap to what a model suggests is a fair price.
To run this analysis, we made the following assumptions:

  • Future earnings growth – we base this on the 4.85% growth rate of earnings from 2012 to the end of 2019. ...
  • Acceptable return premium – we assume a 7% discounting factor based on historical equity returns
  • Years of cash flows to value – we project and discount earnings for the next 25 years.


PS This model has ALWAYS worked in the past and will also ALWAYS work in the future.  tic

More lockdown wrong ...

Quote

 

A Wirepoints analysis of COVID-19 deaths from the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office reveals that 92 percent of victims from the virus had pre-existing medical conditions.

The medical examiner’s database showed COVID-19 as the primary cause of death for 2,303 people. Of those, 2,112 were shown to have at least one underlying condition as a secondary cause of death. Those conditions, also known as comorbidities, included hypertension, diabetes, obesity and heart disease. There were no secondary causes reported for 191 deaths.

 

Here’s what I ben just sayin’  ----------- Even though “There were no secondary causes reported for 191 deaths” , of those 191 deaths that actually had and died from the C1984, those 191 individuals also had latent underlying conditions/ comorbidities. (ims,  in my stats, ... of course in my stats of their stats, ‘everyone’ who has died in 2020 has died of c1984 ... notice how suddenly no one is dying of the flu.  No one? )

ie lockdowns are (suspiciously) WAY OUT OF PROPORTION to the actual threat

fun with viruses and vaccines... primary and secondary effects

Do you fall into the "If we can develop a vaccine quickly..." camp?
Do you think everything rests on “When we get a vaccine, then ...”?
Do you think we can’t get this under control “Until we get a vaccine”
https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2020-05-14/covid-19-unlikely-kill-you-vaccine-may

What if vaccines for ‘viruses’ is all bad science? What if you cannot give a generalized dose of toxins (which is what a virus is) to everyone in the hopes the vaccine will be sufficient 'practice' in that dose for each body to fight off any subsequent exposure to the toxin?  For example, what if not a single dose of flu vaccine has EVER prevented flu in even one individual?  What if if they were going to get it they got and if they weren’t going to get it they didn’t - whether they had the flu vaccine or not?   What if biologically viruses vaccines simply doesn’t work the way 'science' is telling us they do  - even if generations of ‘scientists’ believe it does?  Is this a good example of unconscious consensus narratives in living color?  Is the promise of a vaccine for a virus- that has never been proven to prevent anything - all it takes for wall street to believe all is well and stocks are underpriced?.

 Nobody really cares at this point about the data or how weak it is because they simply attribute it all to the coronavirus. It’s a self-inflicted wound. Forgetting about the fact that we were actually wounded anyway. People don’t appreciate the problems that the US economy had – the very deep-seated structural problems that lay beneath that bubble that people still haven’t come to terms with. They’re still focusing on the effects of the coronavirus and not realizing that the economy was very sick long before we got infected with the coronavirus.”

And it was Powell’s policies – the ones he wants to triple down on today – that wounded the economy to begin with.

There is no easy path forward. The bubbles need to deflate. The distortions and misallocations in the economy need to reset. But that would create a great deal of pain that the political class isn’t willing to face. Instead, they will kick the can down the road by repeating the same mistakes of the past on a larger scale.

...Big Tech censorship agenda has really kicked into high gear ever since the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) began spreading in the United States and other Western nations. And a big reason for this is the World Health Organization (WHO), which has reportedly been pressuring the tech giants to censor “harmful content” and “misinformation” about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).

It would seem as though there is only one narrative allowed concerning this pandemic, and that narrative portends that the virus is so bad that everyone’s freedoms need to be taken away, including the right not to vaccinate, as part of the “new normal.”

Good news!  (and greatly under-reported, btw) -- Flu(s) and pneumonia(s) may have been eradicated.  No deaths from either in months and months.  Thanks god.

“When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.” Benjamin Franklin

Since we always file stacks of paper forms by mail, our $2400 check was late coming.  It finally arrived on Monday so my wife and I are in high cotton ... for the six days it covers our minimum daily expenses, that is...

In my opinion, all those checks are wasted money, but now most people want to receive  even more free money - not realizing that “whenever a new dollar is introduced into the system, it erodes the value of all dollars that currently exist.  Usually this is a relatively slow process, but now our politicians have gone absolutely nuts and very painful inflation is on the way.”  Free money aint free.  That check is borrowed from and owed back to 'the devil'.  I'm just sayin'

    • Date : 01st June 2020. Events to Look Out for This Week.Geopolitics are back in the picture giving the markets pause and adding another layer of uncertainty to a shaky global outlook. However other than US-China tension, next week the global data dockets are heavy and results are likely to underscore the cratering in global economies this quarter. The calendar includes the US Jobs Report and Monetary policy meeting from RBA, BOC and ECB.Monday – 01 June 2020 Caixin Manufacturing PMI (CNY, GMT 01:45) – The Caixin manufacturing PMI is expected to slightly improve to 49.6 from 49.4 in May. ISM Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM index is expected to slip to 40.0 in May from 41.5 in April, compared to a recession-low of 34.5 in December of 2008. Tuesday – 02 June 2020   Interest Rate Decision & Statement (RBA, GMT 04:30) – The RBA meet and are unlikely to move rates below historic lows at 0.25%, as RBA Gov. Lowe is his recent statement repeated that negative interest rates extraordinarily unlikely. RBA will maintain its expansionary monetary policies until progress is made towards full employment and we are confident on inflation . Wednesday – 03 June 2020   Gross Domestic Product (AUD, GMT 01:30) – GDP is the economy’s most important figure. Q1’s GDP is expected to slow down at 0.3% q/q and 1.9% y/y. Unemployment data (EUR, GMT 07:55-09:00) – The German unemployment rate in May is expected to have increased to 6.2% from 5.8%, while unemployment change is expected to have declined to 194K from April’s 373K. Meanwhile, Eurozone’s April unemployment rate should rise to 7.7% from 7.4% last month. ADP Employment Change (USD, GMT 12:15) – Lasts month, ADP report revealed a -20,236k April drop that undershot the -19,520k private payroll decline by -716k. For May a -9,000k drop is seen, since nearly all measures of activity rose in May from a trough. ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI (USD, GMT 14:00) – The ISM-NMI index is expected to rise to 46.0 from 41.8 in April. Most producer sentiment reports should show May rebounds after huge April declines due to mandatory closures, on top of the demand hit initially associated with the pandemic, and the oil price plunge with the OPEC price war, as re-openings are underway in most states. The April drop in the ISM survey was much smaller than the declines seen in other measures, however, and this is why we expect a further drop in May for that measure. Interest Rate Decision and Monetary Policy Statement (CAD, GMT 14:00) – On April 15, the Bank held rates steady at 0.25%, matching widespread expectations. In the next policy statement, the BoC is expected to leave rates unchanged, the Bank of Canada Governor Poloz said is his last interview that negative rates are needed only in extreme conditions. Thursday – 04 June 2020   Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (EUR, GMT 11:45 & 12:30) – Given that Lagarde buried any hope of a “mild” recession, the stage seems set for an extension of the PEPP program in size and duration at next week’s council meeting with an end date next year giving the economy more time to recover and EU aid programs to come into effect. Given that the ECB is no longer putting much hope in a quick recovery it is already clear that with the current time frame until the end of December that would risk a sharp widening of spreads in the second half of the year, when there is also the risk of a second wave of Covid-19 infections. Jobless Claims (USD, GMT 12:30)– US initial jobless claims contracted last week by -323k to 2,123k in the week ended May 23 after tumbling -241k to 2,446k previously. Claims have been declining since surging to 6,867k in the March 27 week. Friday – 05 June 2020   Event of the Week – Non-Farm Payrolls (USD, GMT 12:30) – A -2,200k May nonfarm payroll drop is anticipated, following a -20,527 April collapse, and a -701k drop in March. The jobless rate should rise to 17.5% from 14.7% from April, versus 4.4% in March. Nearly all measures of activity rose in May from a trough just after the April BLS survey week, but the initial and continuing claims data suggest a weaker labor market in mid-May than mid-April. Average hourly earnings are assumed to fall -1.0% with a partial unwind of the April distortion from layoffs being concentrated in low-wage categories. This would translate to a drop in the y/y gain to 6.6% from 7.9%. Labour Market Data (CAD, GMT 12:30) – Canada employment plunged -1993.8k in April, nearly doubling the -1010.7k tumble in March to leave a massive and rapid reversal in the labour market as firms cut jobs as most of the economy ceased to function amid the stay at home orders the began around the middle of March. For May employment should revealed a 4,000k drop in jobs, doubling again last months number. B]Always trade with strict risk management.
