GREAT NEWS FOR THE MKT TO CONTINUE IT"S UPWARD CLIMB

Mortgage loan delinquency (the ratio of borrowers 60 or more days past due) increased for the 11th straight quarter, hitting an all-time national average high of 6.25 percent for the third quarter of 2009, according to credit rating firm TransUnion. At the current rate, delinquencies would hit a one-year high this year.

Buffett purchased preferred shares in US Airways (LCC: 3.33 -0.05 -1.48%) in the early 1990’s, and later remarked that this was one of his biggest mistakes. Now before getting to far into this it is worthwhile to comment that Buffett did in fact end up making a profit on his holdings of US Airways but Buffett certainly cannot claim credit for this. In his own words:

“Two changes at the company coincided with its remarkable rebound: 1) Charlie and I left the board of directors and 2) Stephen Wolf became CEO. Fortunately for our egos, the second event was the key…” Warren Buffett, Bershire Hathaway Letter 1997.

A few years after purchasing Buffett had pretty much written off the investment and had tried to sell out of the stock numerous times at a substantial discount. The investment had essentially become out of control and Buffett wanted out.

I understand the fraud within the financial services sector, but what was the fraud in the retail, wholesale, and distribution sector?  Did Sam's sell a bunch of folks tap water again? 
 
Oh yeah, who's your source on that piece?

I'm a little confused.  Title says, "Average amount lost to fraud in previous 3 years."  Chart shows two years.  Since these are yearly numbers, what's being averaged?  Is the financial services column per company, per state, per sector (banking, investment, insurance, etc), per person, per transaction, what?  This is meaningless.

Did you screw up your spreadsheet, mel?

You do know that this is a chart about the financial services companies BEING defrauded, right? And only 12% of that loss (according to Kroll risk management here is the link http://www.directorship.com/kroll-global/) is compliance related/regulatory breach.

So you're using industry statistics to show individuals are crooks?  Ok, I'll let you equate individuals with their respective industry.
 
Back to my questions...what is it that your cute chart with pretty colors tells me?

Are you a financial Advisor ?
Yes-- then you basically provide very little service to people and charge them an outrageous fee for something that they could do just as well ( or better ) on their own for 1/2 the cost. Maybe crook is too strong of a word...how about worthless instead

This is obviously a made up chart.  Uses the 10 core S&P sectors and list two years of results in a chart claiming to be for 3 years.  Not even a good attempt.

Is that you're point here, bubbles?  You come on to an FA forum and diss the industry?

Seriously, back to your chart.  WTF does it mean?  Credit card fraud is out of control?  Way to many checks are being forged?  The number of people who put erroneous info on mortgage applications is staggering?  What?

You had a point, yes?  What was it?  Did you have a point, or do you just like colors?  (go ahead, diss my family instead of answering)

The delinquency rate for mortgage loans on one-to-four-unit residential properties rose to a seasonally adjusted rate of 9.64 percent of all loans outstanding as of the end of the third quarter of 2009, up 40 basis points from the second quarter and up 265 basis points from one year ago, the MBA said in its National Delinquency Survey.
 

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits were flat at a seasonally adjusted 505,000 in the week ended Nov. 14, the Labor Department said. However, the four-week moving average of claims dropped to its lowest in almost a year.

Meaningless- Stocks average 10% a year meletio. Go long or be wrong!!!!!

What if we discuss the last 20? or 30? I'll bet most invest for that long? You failed and you're a failure. Only thing lost with a buy and hold strategy is opportunity. Very few have ever been able to properly time, so why try. Also, you failed.

You were right for ten years. I was right for 18 months. Who won? It's not length of time, it's magnitude.  You will be wrong in a big way soon. Enjoy your__________time. I'm sure mine will be shorter, however I will profit and you will NOT
