Mainstream media is all, ah, atwitter about major stories that have recently been broken by blogs, as well as all that information flowing freely through social networking sites. Apparently these new media upstarts are not being properly respectful of the dinosaurs of journalism, who now plan to take decisive action – once they figure out what’s happening, that is. The NY Times , after ignoring the ACORN story for an embarrassingly long time, will now have an opinion media czar who will monitor those bloggy things to ascertain what stories might be deemed worthy of their attention. The czar will of course be forced ...
Fossil Fuel Beta (FFß) measures the percent change in excess, i.e., market-adjusted, stock returns for every 1 percent increase in fossil fuel prices. If, for example, a company (or industry) has an FFß of –0.20, then a 1 percent increase in fossil fuel prices should produce, on average, a 0.2% decline in the firm’s stock price over and above the impact arising from fossil fuel price swing on the stock market as a whole. (Conversely, a 1 percent decrease in fossil fuel prices should produce, on average, an equivalent increase in stock price.) Converting the FFß into a hypothetical ‘EPS-equivalent,’ based on, say, a 10 percent ...

at his blog – arguing that readers of Zero Hedge are “paranoid nutters” who engage in “conspiracy theories” which — most damningly — are only right “once in a while”. Hagan on MSNBC Morning Joe (July 31) , cloaking massive corruption and fraud in the language and rituals of objectivity. Hagan identifies the “founder” of ZH as Dan Ivandjiiski, “a 30-year-old Bulgarian immigrant banned from working in the brokerage business for insider trading,” formerly with Wexford Capital, “a Connecticut-based hedge fund run by a former Goldman trader.” Ivandjiiski says he is just one of many contributors. market research, surveys and trends

opel « Der Don
The Opel saga gets ever more embarrassing for German chancelloress Anjie Merkel from the former GDR, a failed state. She got bitch-slapped by GM for trying to sell something she (Germany) does not own. Her pre-election ramshackle deal with Magna is yet another display of her inaptitude. German politicians are lived. Forget their ramblings against the locusts, it is now „ the ugly face of turbo-capitalism“ as a certain Mr. Rüttgers put it. It remains to be seen how many factories will be closed and how many workers laid off. Can it be a coincidence that this developed as the chancelloress was in Washington DC?!!

Just when you thought Congress was spent -- literally -- and done for the year they'll turn around and surprise you. No money left to do anything? United Republican opposition?

The cost is estimated from $1.6 trillion to extend them to as much as $2.7 trillion to make them permanent. According to Senate Democratic sources, the latter is what they're going to go for -- and they're planning to do it before the midterm elections. As I write in a story this morning , Dems are hoping to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Sherrod not sure she would go back to Ag Dept
The woman at the center of a racially tinged firestorm involving the Obama administration and the NAACP said Wednesday she doesn't know if she'd return to her job at the Agriculture Department, even if asked. "I am just not sure how I would be treated there," Shirley Sherrod said in a nationally broadcast interview.

What do you think of the Bank of America stock? - Yahoo! Answers
I got in BAC trade last year based on the notion that they had a 6-8% dividend, and that the gov was going to back them so there could not fail, and eventually they would turn around in a few years. It was going to be a "long term hold." I got out of that trade I think it was in the same week, after re-evaluating the trade. I determined that there is still way to much risk in banking stocks, and then I sold at around $53.00 with a small hit. I recently posted that I felt BAC would have to cut their div by 50% or more. Since that post, word is that Wall Street thinks the USG will force BAC to cut their div to 1 cent or to zero in ...
