CPI 0.2 versus 0.1, told you there was no inflation. Excluding food, energy, medicine, housing, .... core cpi was 0%

Inflation is building at the wholesale level. The recent reports from the surveys (PMI, etc.) indicate that prices paid are rising but prices received are not. Companies are still having trouble with pricing. That may change, but with the global capacity overhang, it could be awhile.

Once upon a time that would portend lower gross margins.

Not so any more. Just "one-time" it or flat out "exclude" it with pro-forma and.....wallah..."beat by a penny".

See how easy it is.

First you lay off workers, then hire more accountants. If that does not work, you lie.

That's the story of the rally to date.

It keeps geting better.....

(REUTERS) Greenspan, Snow offer mutual fund reform guidance

WASHINGTON, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan and U.S. Treasury Secretary John Snow on Tuesday urged swift punishment for anyone convicted in the growing
scandal involving the $7 trillion mutual fund.
In letters to the heads of the Senate and House committees overseeing the financial services industry who are holding hearings into the industry this week, Greenspan and Snow said, "we would urge you to keep a few key principles in mind."

The theatrics were unreal today...Sorry I missed Dick Chops Hoey. Some good stuff.

The funniest thing I saw this morning was when Maria was by the A post and was so excited she wanted to catch the action and bolted out of the the screen to try to describe the euphoric specialist action near the A post. Now what Maria forgets the camera thats shooting her is like one of those Wall Mart "criminal cams that dooesn't swivel or move. It's locked on one spot.

So crapvision was shooting Maria's "empty space" on a wooden floor as she was off yapping. Something you shuld try if you ever catch her in the morning is mute the sound. Her mouth moves so fast and her eyes are bugging out trying to get in all the "hot news" off that it is worth the price of admission alone. Definately will provide a laugh.

In summation of this mornings activity,,,,This is a joke.
The whole system...

the govt refuses to let the mkt find its clearing level. Just makes it that much worse, but I guess the central planners feel the need to justify their existence.
""Pretty bubbleheads preen daily on our financial networks, playing the shill to Wall Street and Washington in order to lure unsuspecting Americans into buying insanely overvalued stocks. The great market exchanges, once prudent arenas of investment where the engine of capitalism traded value for value, have become sham casinos staggering under decades of massive Fed created debt and lurching into oblivion on the greater fool theory. Yet our high level bureaucrats, led by Alan Greenspan, exhort all Americans to consume still more of their seed corn and seek still more fools." N. Hultberg
