Think Like A Business Owner

Think Like A Business Owner

Investing in dividend stocks requires the correct mindset. A business owner mindset is critical for sustained success when investing in dividend stocks.

WTI Crude Oil Buying Dips On The Short-term

WTI Crude Oil Buying Dips On The Short-term

The WTI Crude Oil market fell during the session on Wednesday, in order to show just a little bit of resistance. However, I believe that we are sitting on top of a significant amount of support as we have recently broken out to the upside. This sideways action will more than likely be a simple rest after […]

Chinese Iron Ore Prices Plunge After CISA Warns Of Persistent Overcapacity

Having rebounded along with practically every other risk-asset class in the world over the last month or so, Chinese Iron Ore futures are collapsing tonight. Despite the promise of Chinese LTROs expanding credit (just like they didn’t in Europe), iron ore prices are down around 4% – the biggest drop in over 2 years – to as low […]

Supply, Supply, Supply

Supply, Supply, Supply

50% of the basic economic equation is supply. Too little of it, prices climb, too much, they fall. In the real estate market 6mos is considered “equilibrium” where supply meets demand.  When you have too little supply and still increasing demand, you can just about guarantee higher prices.  The Houston housing market is seeing this […]

Make Profits From Tougher Oil Transport Rules

Well, it happened again. A Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) train carrying crude oil derailed on Wednesday in North Dakota and caught fire.

Why Subsidize Data Centers?

Why Subsidize Data Centers?

A number of authors (Good Jobs First, David Cay Johnston, me, and me, among others) have pointed out that data centers (aka server farms) in the United States create very few jobs, yet receive state and local government subsidies that routinely exceed $1 million per job.

Comex Gold Rises To A Near Record 107.7 Claims Per Registered Ounce

Comex Gold Rises To A Near Record 107.7 Claims Per Registered Ounce

Well, here we are again. As you may have noticed from my postings of the Comex Warehouse Gold inventories, lately there has been a significant drop in the level of ‘registered’ or deliverable gold held there.  And since the open interest or number of contract held by punters and investors is not dropping commensurately, the […]
Yet Another Chart That Whimpers “Recession”

Yet Another Chart That Whimpers “Recession”

It’s worthwhile recalling that mainstream economists, the Federal Reserve, government agencies and the mainstream financial media all deny the economy is in recession until it falls off a cliff. Back in March I published unambiguously recessionary charts of new orders and per capita energy consumption: New Orders Look Recessionary (March 9, 2015) Why Is Per Capita Energy […]
