re: JPMorgan Chase Bank CEO Jamie Dimon buys 500,000 shares of JPM - Doc Fenton
Yeah, but I fell for these exact same types of confidence signals back in mid-2008, when large institutional investors started investing back in MBS. They don't always know what they're doing. In Dimon's case, I trust that he knows what he's doing, and that buying more than 20% off the peak is no...

re: Forecast when the Fed Reserve will increase interest rates again & how often? - Doc Fenton
[quote]You may be right, and your prediction is almost exactly what I originally predicted the my first post. But if there is a recession in the U.S. and the Fed raises rates anyway, there will be political hell to pay.[/quote] Exactly. I am thinking they will likely reverse their December 16...

re: Forecast when the Fed Reserve will increase interest rates again & how often? - Doc Fenton
[quote]The Fed has painted themselves into a corner. Traditionally raising rates is a tool to fight inflation. I believe there is an internal interest rate for a normal functioning economy. When it gets too hot, raise rates, when it gets too cool, lower them. But because the Fed left the rat...

re: John Ellis Bush is the Anti-Trump - Doc Fenton
... In other words, Ted Cruz is just another populist evangelical who wants to protect entitlements for old white people. If Donald Trump is just another right-wing Euro-style socialist (and, yes, he is exactly that), then Cruz is just another poser who speaks eloquently of the Constitution, but ...

[quote]No. It shows "what goes around, comes around". Dems have celebrated a divisive petulant punk in the WH for 7yrs. They have celebrated his lack of respect for long standing principles, his lack of decorum, and his lack of civility. They have disrespected critics, often in a very person...

re: I think I have VASTLY underestimated Trump's general election chances - Doc Fenton
I genuinely do not understand your support for Marco Rubio, nor your hatred for Jeb Bush. It makes no sense. The "glitch narrative" is not a false one by the way. It accurately encapsulates and confirms everything we already know about Rubio's weaknesses as a candidate. Christie's "I'm a governor...

re: Why MLK Day and not Civil Rights Day? - Doc Fenton
Yeah. That was awkward to write. Just to be clear, I'm not trying to support the history of the KKK or anything like that. I'm just saying that transition periods are important for every culture to develop the cultural habits that make representative, republican government work. This is true no m...

No, I wimped out. But I am completely out of the market, and looking for the best re-entry point. I have been a ton of researching this stuff in my spare time lately, and have been thinking about creating an "Active Investment Management Theory" thread, but I'll probably never get around to it.
