Session Time: Fri Jan 25 00:00:00 2013
[08:42] {scottie} Hi everyone, will be off today, see you all monday :)
[09:08] {dino} gm
01[09:08] {Threei}  dino :)
06[09:08] * nemo puke
01[09:08] {Threei}  beno... norovirus?
01[09:08] {Threei}  nemo
[09:09] {nemo} no, these frickin' niceties
01[09:10] {Threei}  notice how professionals closed the market yesterday
[09:13] {nemo} cat probably long off the open
01[09:14] {Threei}  Caterpillar Inc Reports Dec Dealer statistics; retail sales of machines -1%; power systems retail -2%
01[09:15] {Threei}  interesting breakdown:
01[09:15] {Threei}  - Retail Sales of Machines: Asia/Pacific DOWN 7% EAME* UP 4% Latin America UP 14% ROW** UP 2% North America DOWN 6% World DOWN 1%
01[09:15] {Threei}  - Power systems retail: Electric Power UP 4% Industrial DOWN 20% Transportation DOWN 11% Petroleum UP 3% Total DOWN 2%
[09:15] {cipher} gm
01[09:17] {Threei}  cipher :)
01[09:17] {Threei}  I wouldn;t try to catch CAT right out of the gate
[09:19] {nemo} every solid company is getting bought up after reports, so I'd look for it to climb
01[09:20] {Threei}  sure
[09:22] {nemo} well, Doug Kass just published why CAT shares are vulnerable today
01[09:23] {Threei}  don't youi hate these vague slippery expressions
01[09:23] {Threei}  "vulnerable"
[09:23] {nemo} he's showing his sensitive side
01[09:24] {Threei}  was AAPL at 700 vulnerable?
01[09:24] {Threei}  I haven't seen anyone applying such definition to it
[09:24] {nemo} different animal
01[09:24] {Threei}  yet it dropped like a rock
[09:25] {nemo} well, kinda' went up like a shooting star too
01[09:25] {Threei}  yes, so it was what, "invincible" back then?
01[09:25] {Threei}  inbreakable?
[09:25] {nemo} interesting....the term "meteoric rise"  it's actually incorrect.  Meteors fall
01[09:25] {Threei}  i=u
[09:26] {nemo} damn...out of rum
01[09:27] {Threei}  I'd guess the term ferers to meteors in terms of speed, not direction
[09:27] {nemo} why would you use the term "rise"?
01[09:29] {Threei}  to indicate the direction? :)
06[09:29] * nemo faints
[09:29] {nemo} ooops, what I just buy
[09:29] {nemo} sbux, oy
01[09:29] {Threei}  with your forehead?
[09:30] {nemo} hit wrong keys again.  I'm going back to the frickin' mouse

[11:23] {jdetente} wowzas
01[11:23] {Threei}  (US) US Federal appeals court rules President Obama's prior recess appoints to the National Labor Relations Board were unconstitutional - press- Court found that the Senate was technically in session and that the argument that Senate was on vacation and could not confirm the appointment was wrong. - Reminder: The appointment of Richard Cordray as Chief of the Consumer protection bureau (CFPB) was widely contested in 2012, with the DOJ issuing an opinion that the appointment was constitutional
