Is This The Greatest Stock Market Bubble of All Time?

by Phoenix Capital Research

 

Some truly awful economic results were released over the last week.

First and foremost, we discovered that 80% of the US adults struggle with joblessless, are near poverty, or have a reliance on welfare for at least part of their lives.

The Housing Bust is Back in a Big Way

by Phoenix Capital Research

Anyone who believes that housing is back in a big way needs to take a look at homebuilder stocks.

Here’s DR Horton (DHI) which is down over 30% from its recent highs.

The same can be said for Pulte Homes (PHM)

The World Is Becoming Increasingly Unstable, Global Markets Could Be Due For A Shock

Stockman: The End Is Near and There’s Nothing We Can Do About It

I’ve read a lot of doom-and-gloom analysis from financial experts over the last couple of years, but this one by former Reagan OMB Director David Stockman takes first prize for scaring the holy living beejeeses out of me.

A few highlights:

Since the S.&P. 500 first reached its current level, in March 2000, the mad money printers at the Federal Reserve have expanded their balance sheet sixfold (to $3.2 trillion from $500 […]
