Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of February 10th, 2013

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment Services

Federal Reserve Governor Jeremy Stein fell short of declaring that credit markets are overheating, but suggested that an extended period of low interest rates could lead to the taking on of greater duration of credit risks, or to employment of greater leverage in a “reach for yield.” He said that the Fed must monitor the financial markets closely and could address signs of excessive risk-taking through regulatory efforts or through monetary policy.

Next week, President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union Address on Tuesday evening (which is also Mardi Gras). Most likely, the President will ask that Congress postpone the sequester through the end of the year. Note that it’s not costless to do so – there has to be an offsetting increase in revenues (possibly closed loopholes) or reduction in other types of spending (say, reduced farm subsidies). The reports on retail sales and industrial production have some market-moving potential, but seasonal adjustment could exaggerate what would otherwise be minor shifts in the data. «Read the rest of this article»

Sometimes, I Want to Punch Christians

 

My name is Carlo. I am a Christ-follower and sometimes, I really want to punch Christians right in the kisser.

Listen, I know that according the biblical qualifications for a pastor, I should not be quick to anger or sinfully violent. Relax, He’s still working on me. Nevertheless, when I read about Christians who leave ignorant notes on receipts instead of generous tips I want to find those dear “brothers and sisters” and “lay hands” on them in the name of the Lord. Maybe Christian on Christian violence isn’t the best way to spread the love of Jesus, but folks like this make it really hard to convince the world that we are not all “holier than thou” crazies. «Read the rest of this article»
