GKP Investors Fearful of Further Fighting

Aug 07 2014 @ 16:06
It was just three days ago, Monday, 04 August, that I wrote about Kurdish oil producers shares falling as the militants of the Islamic State had taken new ground in northern Iraq, include control of the countries largest dam on Lake Mosul. Continued advancement, now eastward, by the militant troops is quickly eroding investor confidence […]

Is Obama Admin Out to Get Elon Musk?

Jul 16 2014 @ 11:04
You have got to wonder if the Obama administration is out to get Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) founder Elon Musk. Following remarks by Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen, Tesla’s share price plunged to 219.58 from it’s previous close of 226.45 on 14 July. It may be difficult to prove that Yellen’s ineptness caused the significant reduction in the […]

US Economy Everyone's Fault But Obama's

Jun 25 2014 @ 18:36
The U.S. economy suffered a 2.9%  decline in GDP during the first quarter of 2014. Whilst that statement on its own is bad enough, it is even worse when we understand that it is  the worst quarterly performance since the first quarter of 2009, which, by the way, was the first quarter of Barack Obama’s […]

Can Anything Good Come Out of Iraq?

Jun 17 2014 @ 12:18
Whilst the general populace looks upon the current unrest and atrocities in Iraq, the financial markets are reacting, not with the horror of the general public, but with concern about the potential value of their investments. In no way do I mean to make this sound like the financial world has no heart. I am, […]

Dow Hits Record High - I Didn't See That Coming!

May 01 2014 @ 11:24
My day did not end well yesterday. In my ADVFN story, “How Will Weak US Economy Affect Us?” I warned of gloom and doom on the world economic scene as a result of a weak US first quarter.  I pointed to the Dow Jones, the S&P, and the Nasdaq all opening down following the release […]

How Will Weak US Economy Affect Us?

Apr 30 2014 @ 11:03
There are not many happy headlines this morning in the US after markets opened sharply lower on reports that “The U.S. economy slowed in the first quarter to one of the weakest paces of the five-year recovery .” Against an expectation of a 1.1% increase in GDP, the US gained a mere 0.1%. Combine that with […]

Obama Better Building Legos than BRICS

Apr 21 2014 @ 11:36
US President Obama has done a super job. A super job of alienating just about every nation on the planet, including his own. Since early in his first administration he has apologized to the enemies of the West for past administrations and pandered to those whose plan is, and nearly always has been, to dethrone […]

BP Is Now ‘More Investable'

Mar 14 2014 @ 11:17
Lucy MacDonald, who manages some $7.3 billion in assets in her position as CIO of Allianz Global Investors, has declared that BP (LSE:BP.) (NYSE:BP) is now “more investable” as a result of the company’s entering into an administrative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency four years past the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe in the Gulf […]

The Truth About U.S. Unemployment

Feb 19 2014 @ 12:58
It was just a few days ago (12 February) that I wrote about the potential impact of the allegedly declining unemployment rate in the U.S. in a story entitled “Beware of Bullard’s Bubble Bulletin.” In a nutshell, Bullard, the President of the St. Louis Fed had expressed his concern that the Federal Reserve Bank may […]

Oil - Obama's Petrostate or His Problem?

Feb 17 2014 @ 10:40
The petroleum sector is, almost without debate, the single largest economic and political force in the world. Petroleum can used to leverage peace and prosperity, but it can also be used to dictate power and to decimate entire economies and political entities. Which raises my personal concern over how President Obama will use the current […]
