4 warning signs your stocks could be ready to plunge
If these numbers go bad on a company's balance sheet, experts know it's probably time to get out.
I found this to be a very enlightening and interesting article. However, over the many years that I have owned individual stocks, received annual reports and proxy statements, I have tried to read the financials. But I must confess that they are written in accounting jargon that I am not conversant in. At one point, I thought that I should take a couple accounting courses. While I understand from the article what to look for, I am not convinced that I would be able to be a good enough detective to find the four things to look for. I've also found that some companies have a way of burying, hiding information or putting it in obscure places which further compounds the problem of
locating the information that they don't want the uneducated public to find easily.
You can't see the handwriting on the wall?
"NEW YORK (Reuters) - Stocks erased losses to trade higher by midday on Tuesday after Atlanta Federal Reserve President Dennis Lockhart said economic data remains too mixed to lay out a detailed path for reducing and eventually halting their asset-purchase stimulus plan at their September meeting."
That's not causing investing, it's appeasing panic and causing gambling. Count the days... it ends with a BANG (Kool Aid addicts killing themselves).
HERE... are two solid reasons to liquidate all your stock positions TODAY. First, the only thing these articles actually say is-- selective data is being used again to create an artificial notion of activity. You can call a Greek and he'll laugh you off the phone for this. SECOND... there hasn't been ONE article chronicling hiring and family-sustaining wage generation in Europe. There isn't any. We have two articles trying to make it look like Central Banks have done some good. They haven't. WORLD MARKETS CRASH SOON because billions are unemployed and there are no economies worth the public's involvement. The Greatest Money Laundering Scam in History is falling apart.
LONDON (Reuters) - Clear signs the euro zone has crawled out of an 18-month long recession supported European shares near a 10-week peak on Wednesday and saw German 10-year yields hover near their highest level in almost two months.
The German economy grew by 0.7 percent in the second quarter, its largest expansion in over a year, while the French economy expanded by 0.5 percent, more than twice as fast as expected and exiting its own shallow recession.
The growth in Europe's two largest economies paves the way for a positive surprise when gross domestic product (GDP) data for the whole of 17-nation euro area is released at 0900 GMT (4:00 a.m. EDT).
LONDON (AP) - The longest-ever recession to afflict the eurozone came to an end in the second quarter of the year, official figures confirmed Wednesday.
Eurostat, the European Union's statistics office, said the 17 European Union countries that use the euro saw their collective economic output grow by 0.3 percent in the April to June period from the previous quarter.
That's the first quarterly growth since the eurozone slipped into recession in the last three months of 2011. The ensuing recession of six quarters was the longest since the euro currency was launched in 1999.
