Why Alstry is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and you are sheeple



May 19, 2009 – Comments (16)

It is not that you guys are idiots....well most of you many of you are very intelligent.

It is simply most of you have very little ability to think outside the box or leave the herd you are grazing is what Alstry calls the sheeple complex.....and many of you have it.

It is not a bad thing, it is simply a fact of life and the way you are trained.

DWOT and others reported the other day that corporate profits were down 90% from just 20 months earlier.

Today, we see new housing starts down to record lows and new housing sales down 80% from a few years ago.

Auto sales are down 50% and deteriorating.

Saks reports same store sales down 25% and HomeDepot is down SSS about 16% in a couple years.

We know that over the past year millions have been fired from their jobs,

We also know that tens of millions more of have seen their incomes evaporate even though they are not be counted as unemployed.

Our nation is one where its taxes are primarily generated as a derivitive of income and sales.  And our nation NEEDS lots of taxes to function so our politicians can keep their promises and jobs.  Have you ever seen many politicians volutarily quit their jobs????????

With corporate profits down 90%, new home sales down 80%, auto sales down 50%, and personal incomes evaporating...........the tax revenues to our nations local, state and federal government is now slowing to a trickle.  You don't believe me, just ask anyone who lives in California, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Florida, New York, Indiana, Arizona, Nevada....and on and on.

Unlike The Great Depression, our governments have a lots of debt this time around.....LOTS OF DEBT....and we are all responsible for that debt.

As good citizens we must pay our fair share.....and if our neighbors can't pay we must pick up the slack or who will pay for police, fire, and our defense???

Based on my calculations, if we continue on the same trajectory and same policies....even if we taxed American citizens who were qualified to pay taxes 100% of their would not be  enough to cover the current obligations.

Hmmmm.  What do you think the politicans are going to do when faced with the prediciment of raising taxes or breaking promises and losing their jobs?????

It is not that Alstry is the BEST because he is the smartest.....he is just an average guy.....Alstry is the best because he refuses to be a sheeple.

Just do the math my friends......there is simply not enough money to pay down the debt and not enough income to sustain our government.  Printing money by borrowing more will only make a horrible problem even worse.  A policy of giving all of the nations wealth to a few banks and leaving the people, corporations and government burdened with unsustainable debt is a recipie for disaster.

This problem should be much more visible to most of my fellow CAPs sheeple within the next couple quarters.....eventually you guys will see the light.....the question then is whether it will be too late?

I know...what can we sheeple do about it???  Start thinking would be a good start.

Prepare!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Your government may need ALL of your savings.

They will borrow, until they can't borrow anymore. Then they will inflate to devalue the debt. And China and Japan will be left holding the bag. This is why China is now putting the USDs into commodities. And chinese must be mad as hell, for they see what is coming but they are trapped.

Commodities are the new reserve currency, so the analyst should quit being so smug  talking about how there is no alternative to USD. China will rather have mountains of copper than the worthless US paper.

Since we are no longer producing much and importing a lot....inflating without production leads to starvation....wages simply can't keep up with rising costs.....

how do you think the citizens are going to react when millions are out on the streeets and starving because their income can't afford much???

I welcome the depression because a truly massive shock is needed for the general population to take notice of the unsustainable practices employed by our nation from top to bottom.  Without catastrophe there is not likely to be any change, because it's easier to just accept the status quo as long as you are indoctrinated slowly over a long period of time.

I've been doing a lot of studying of investment books and I read a common theme among them: that corporations and analysts have a documented history & pattern of understating/estimating or bookkeeping earnings in order to be able to "beat" their own estimates in down markets. The thinking seems to be that if you are already down you may as well book more downside now in order to be able to show an improvement next quarter and thereby boost enthusiasm for your stock. I suspect much of these down earnings are over stated.

Further that analysts are often the last to recognize an improvement in a companies fundamentals if they already have a pessimistic outlook. Just as they can be slower to recognize problems if they have an optimistic outlook for a particular company. This is just one of the many well documented and studied ways that individual's bias' affecs the supposed balanced market where by "everything known" is priced into securities. A concept I now find immensely wrong headed. If investors have not investigated behavioral finance I highly recommend taking a look. There is some amazing research out there on individual investor behavior as well as analyst, mamagement and general market behavior and repeating patterns that could be valuable for any investor to add to their tool box.

Just an observation 


PS "sheeple" is a loathsome term to use about others no matter how tittilating it may be in a title to garner readers

Damn you're good.  The best.  You ride that edge, taunting, bragging, mostly not stepping over the line of the MF terms and conditions.  You sir, are THE BEST TROLLER I've seen.

For myself, you continue to provide a certain comedy relief that very few will laugh at.  I'm one of the few that gets a chuckle out of your writings.  Those that do not, I can only hope they'll see that it is pointless to even try to disagree with you.  After all, YOU'RE ALWAYS RIGHT!!!!!!!!  (ha ha, sometimes I crack myself up...)


Oh, right about everything all the time... EXCEPT on the "ALSTRY CALLING THE TOP, RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW" blog -- --.  You seem to avoid the fact that you were wrong.  Or you seem to change the meaning of what you actually wrote.  Or you seem to focus on some other point.

For those wishing to get to know Alstry[nomics] and what it really is all about, check this out:

Remember the world of Alstrynomics....calling a top always has a margin of 5X to directional projection this case a10% margin espcecially when you are calling for an over 50% downward movement.

Clearly we are still within  the range from 8300 when the "top" was called right here right now.

Now the question is when will we see 4150?

I'm getting tired of the market sustaining this false high.  It's not costing me money, but it's not making me money.  It's flip floppin' around like a fish on a dock.

I'm curious as to how long "Right Now" actually is?  1 week, no.  2 weeks, no.  3 weeks, no, 4 weeks, maybe.  5 weeks, maybe, 6 weeks ????????  How long is RIGHT NOW????????

I sold the FAZ yesterday at $5.45 at a small loss and slid into FAS at $8.70.  There's no selling volume here Alstry.  For the moment, this market is stuck in a sellers strike.   I also see some very well orchastrated rescue moves in the bids in the S & P that are keeping this market from going down.  The impulse waves are also on the upside, not the downside.  Stochastics are being bent and stalled in order to give more bullish signals.  The sell signal of May 7th is off for the time being, with the market bottoming at the point of reconning at 880, and didn't blink.  We will probably now go to 925-935 in the S & P before we get a reversal.
