Stox Dude : earnings haben keine Aussagekraft
Warum denkst Du sahen wir eine Rally von Mitte Maerz aus starten ?
Die grossen Investmenthaeuser haben die ungefaehren Zahlen vorab vorliegen und
muessen nicht auf Bekanntgabe wie wir warten.
Es geht einzig und allein um CAPEX und 2/3 Quarter forecasts worauf die
Inbentory to Sales Ratio ist schwach und wenn ich keine CAPEX Meldungen
von Unternehmen sehe, dann werde ich noch mehr BAER.
Sieh Dir nur mal GM an ! Gestern erst, wurde in Bloomberg News auf das
Rentenkasse Defizit von 25 Milliarden US$ hingewiesen und den Plan einige
Produktionsstaetten zu schliessen!
FORD geht es auch nicht besonders gut!
Die Earnings Erwartungen wurden wegen Irak War runtergeschraubt und jetzt
haben die Firmen keinen Grund mehr CAPEX zurueckzuhalten.
Im Januar gaben sie als Grund die Ungewissheit ob der Krieg stattfindet oder nicht
als Zurueckhaltung der Ausgaben an.
Yep, ich bleibe weiterhin bearish
