Morning News

The Economy grew only at .6% in 4th Quarter 2007.  The economy for the whole year grew at just 2.2%.  

The U.S. Corporate profits fell 3.3% in 4th Quarter!  That is much bigger than the expected .1%.  If profits fell 3.3% in 2007, you can guess where they went in Q1 of 2008.


Oppenheimer analyst Meredith Whitney says Merrill and UBS may lose money this quarter and write-downs could be $6 billion and $11.1 billion, respectively!  Seems like there is only one smart (or honest) analyst out there.  She is usually leading the pack.  Unlike others who come out with their estimates after the write-downs.

She also said yesterday that Citi's writedowns could total $13.12 billion.

Job-less claims

Initial job-less claims fell by 9,000 to 366,000.

Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you're utilizing?
I've loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a reasonable price?

Cheers, I appreciate it!
