  1. From Sunday December 1, 2002 NY Times...... 16-Year Slump? If So, Blame It on the Boomers By MARK HULBERT A new study of American demographic patterns and the stock market predicts that while the market may rally periodically, its overall direction will be downward until around 2018. This bearish forecast is based on a model devised by three finance professors ? John Geanakoplos of Yale, Michael J. P. Magill of the University of Southern California and Martine Quinzii of the University of California at Davis. In a study titled "Demography and the Long-Run Predictability of the Stock Market", they report that their model has done a good job of explaining the bull and bear markets of the last century..... The professors' approach is complex, but it depends on a simple indicator: the ratio of the number of middle-aged people to the number of young adults in the population. When this ratio rises, the overall market's price-to-earnings ratio will rise, too, the professors predict. When the age ratio declines, as it is likely to do until about 2018, the market's P/E will also decline..... ....... according to the model, which predicts that the market has entered a long decline caused by baby boomers selling stocks as they approach retirement. The sales will be only partially offset by the purchases of the smaller group entering middle age. The model predicts that this long-term trend will not turn positive again until after 2018......Full Article Free Registration with the NY Times may be required.

  3. The Original Professional Courtesy Joke A lawyer and his two stockbroker buddies took a month off to sail across the Atlantic. Midway across they hit a hurricane and the yacht sank, leaving barely enough time for all three to radio for help and scramble into a rubber life raft. The raft was riding very low in the water and being circled relentlessly by six or seven sharks when a Coast Guard launched a small rescue boat. A giant wave came along and swamped the survivor's raft. In an instant the sharks mauled the stockbrokers into little more than hamburger, but then broke apart to form a pathway and escort the survivor safely into the hands of the Coast Guard. "Damn!" gasped one of the astonished sailors. "That was a miracle!" "Nah," explained the lawyer modestly, wringing the seawater out of his shirt. "Just professional courtesy." Link =================== When that joke is considered funnier with the roles of the lawyer and the stockbrokers reversed, it will likely mean that THE bottom is near.

  5. What's the difference between a lawyer and a leech? When you die, a leech will stop sucking your blood and drop off. What's the difference between a lawyer and a catfish? One is a scum-sucking bottom feeder, and the other is a catfish. More
