   Jim's Quotes from this segment:  

Alright, let's make something very clear, right at the start of the show... We don't trade the Fed. We don't trade the durable goods numbers. We don't trade the Spanish deficit. We don't trade the short-term unemployment reports. And we certainly don't trade a Ben Bernanke press conference. On a wonderful day, where the Dow rallied 89 points... it's important to remind people that what we do is we invest here on Mad Money. We invest in companies like Apple or IBM or Boeing... companies that produce real earnings streams. And when those earnings streams are strong, and getting stronger, we want to buy, buy, buy those stocks. And when they're getting weaker and weaker, and the estimates will be missed, we want to sell, sell, sell those stocks. It really is that simple. Yet this basic notion seems to repeatedly allude many homegamers, in part because the hedge fund media complex relentlessly propagates the entirely misleading idea that you should be hanging onto every single piece of macro data that comes out, and the Fed's instant reaction to it. This focus is as egregious and confusing and harmful as the risk on/risk off trap that I am indeed stamping out one pundit at a time.

If we want consumer products companies and drug companies, and even the once recession-resistant cable companies to do better, we need more household formation. In the last three years, our birth rate is down a staggering 8% in this country. That's totally related to the inability of people to get married and start families out of fear that they might not be able to find or keep a job, or keep a house. Long story short, virtually every part of this stock market needs the private sector to do more hiring. It would be a Godsend for stocks, regardless of whether the Fed may inflict some pain by raising rates ever so slightly in response to stronger employment. And now the Fed's not even saying that. Remember, better earnings, not lower interest rates, breeds higher stock prices. That's what we want. That's why the rally today makes sense. I just need you to realize the Fed didn't cause the move. The earnings did. And it's the earnings that you should care about.

Here's the bottom line...

▼   ▼   ▼   ▼   ▼

Don't fear good economic data. Don't fear the hawks and the Fed. That's just the hedge fund media complex brainwashing you. The people who tell you this market rallied because of the Fed says it's going to keep money easier... they're living in yesteryear. At some point, I actually want the Fed to verify that things are getting better, definitively better. That would force all the cash wrongly hiding in the money funds, and the bond market... particularly the long-term bond market funds... to come into the stock market. And that drives stocks to new highs. It hasn't happened yet. But if we get new job growth, and we get a Fed that acknowledges that growth is lasting, and we get real demand for money... guess what? We'll go higher, not lower. And that's exactly what I'm betting will happen as the year goes on.
