Who Are The Others? What Are They Doing? – Professional Edition

The Case Shiller House Price Indexes (CSI) for July showed another uptick, which got all the economists crowing again that the bottom is in on house prices. They’re wrong. What else is new? The CSI is misleading them. Today’s report will show you why.

I’m so glad I’m not an economist. What an embarrassment that must be. How can they even face their children?

Meanwhile, the Fed will do most of its support operations now in MBS, which is sort of like a vacuuming out cesspools and filling them with cheap perfume. We have a good idea who some of the cesspool owners are. But we don’t know who got the other $368 billion of our money. We do know what they are doing with it. That part’s easy.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor, of blessed memory. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both sales, analytical, and trading capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I was a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I was considered an expert in the analysis of failed properties that ended up in the hands of bank REO divisions, the FDIC, and the RTC. Remember those guys? I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. I'm not some Ivory Tower academic, Wall Street guy. My perspective comes from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches, as a real estate broker, mortgage broker, trader, account rep, and analyst. I've watched most of the games these Wall Street wiseguys play from right up close. I know the drill from my 55 years of paying attention. And I'm happy to share that experience with you, right here.
