Re: Trivia - strangest REIT morphing

Danaher is a good one. I've often been tempted to buy some of their stock, but I believe I never have.

Re: Russia: An Alternate View

Regarding lower oil prices, their comment was something along the line of “if this goes on for two years or longer, it will become a problem.” Not that it is a problem today.

Re: Interest rates

If you already own a home, you can take out up to $100,000 for a home improvement. So far as I know, they never check to see if that is what you borrowed the money for.

Re: Control Panel: Signal or noise?

So relatively high paid oil field workers are being laid off. But the public now has more money to spend because of markedly lower gasoline prices. So the oil field worker loss may be replaced by lower paid retail workers. Not a particularly good [more]

Re: Quantitative Easing Had Effect

I agree with what you expected. Certainly it seems like the Fed buying up a lot of bonds would lower their rates. Otherwise it seems like whether bonds are bought or not bought has no affect of the rates. Perhaps the Fed did not buy [more]

As for new 52-week highs, the NYSE had a pretty good week with Friday the best day with 219 new daily 52-week highs and only 15 new 52-week lows. Monday through Wednesday, however, had lows ranging from 40 to 58, not so good. So for the week there [more]
