   Jim's Quotes from this segment:  

Jim:
          
So many of the commentators that you see on TV... they're totally stumped on a hugely bullish day like today... but they've still got to explain it somehow. They're only conditioned though to play pin the tail on the Federal Reserve, especially when we rally this hard, with the Dow soaring 194 points...

So what's the thesis behind the earnings? What are people so enamored of... the real elixir that's behind almost all the upside moves we get, besides takeovers and that growth? We've got growth coming from the sodas and the retailers and the web. And while we want to explain everything away, because of the weather, I have a hard time endlessly coming up with reasons why things are better, other than, well, things are better! It doesn't sound smart, right? But what can I do? It's based in fact. Sure, housing starts weren't anything to write home about, but we need fewer homes, if the price of your home is going to increase. Factory production? Not that hot. But, people and companies are spending on goods and services, and that's enough.

Here's the bottom line...

▼   ▼   ▼   ▼   ▼

Get used to an environment where stocks trade on growth, because growth is what matters. That's what propels earnings, and makes stocks go higher... on growth, not on words from Ben Bernanke. Start thinking about stocks that are undervalued, and buy them... and not adding a fresh coat of "risk on." And yes, be careful of Spaniards bearing Greek-like gifts. But remember, this is a game of investing in companies, not countries. It's about taking their dividends. Countries don't have dividends, for heaven's sake! The Federal Reserve doesn't have dividends. Companies pay dividends. You take their dividends, and you put them back into the stocks. That's called reinvesting, and you build fantastic long-term returns. So go "risk on" your Bernanke speak, or actually try to make some money. I find the latter far more satisfying even if, alas, you think I'm dumber for not pointing out that it was a "risk on" day, with Bernanke being quiet... or maybe it was a "risk off" day, with Bernanke doing some blabbing. Or even better, who the heck cares? It's my job to explain and to coach, not to sound smart and confuse you.

Please note our anticipated schedule for posting these recaps:
Because we view each episode after it airs at 6pm Eastern time, we need time to compile the comments, code the pages
and post to the site, thereby, we're usually able to post each night's episode
prior to the market open (i.e., 9:30am) the following business day.     Thank you!   Thinking of a New Trademark?  Free trademark information site here >>
