Grandich Tidbits


  • If my chicken suit on and fox hole dug wasn’t enough of an indication of my thoughts for investors; maybe this can do the trick
  • A massive topping formation continues to unfold in U.S. equities. NASDAQ makes new highs but there are more stocks making new lows than highs – HELLO?????? Creative accounting, financial engineering or whatever you wish to call it, but many major companies’ earnings have fudge all over them. It’s understandable as the economy in general doesn’t allow for standard growth opportunities and management is under intense pressure from Wall Street and shareholders to keep the punch bowl spiked.
  • Something may be rotten in Denmark but it stinks in China right now. The world has avoided a serious recession thanks to China, but the wheels appeared to have come off. China is one of the most important factors to watch its impact across a wide spectrum of financial markets, economies and even world politics.
  • Is it just me or does anyone else find it hard to believe one can trust someone to live up to their end of an agreement with you while at the same time they’re calling for you to die!!!!!
  • No dumb blonde jokes here.
  • You think I would “love” annuities since much of my livelihood now is derived from insurance products; but for most people, there are much better vehicles to hop on IMHO.
  • I don’t think you’ve to be “religious” to believe in evil. All you need to do is to turn on the news. Our failed human nature makes us all potentially evil. Say what you want about our current Pope, but in my book, his recognition of the Prince of Evil desperately needs to be heard and understood by mankind. I, sadly, have allowed that “Prince” to influence too much of my life. My goal is to greatly reduce that and to get on my hands and knees each day and thank my Maker for His Grace. It’s really the only thing keeping me from an eternal heat wave.
