Doin' It Bloggystyle: Linkin' Kennedy


Minyanville brings together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

Blogs themselves need no introduction, as they get as much publicity as pretty much anything these days, save maybe the latest Britney news. There's an expanding world of excellent financial blogs, covering just about everything, from global economics to swing trading. Minyanville's goal is to bring together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.

Mozilo Bank of Coutrywide America?
  • If you are like me and don't exactly understand how the Countrywide (CFC) business model works, Accrued Interest does some 'splaining.
  • Great rundown on the commentary that never made it through the Bubbly pompoms on TV, via the MarketBeat blog.
  • Maybe no winners in the deal, notes Mish.
  • Huge volume in CFC and a close below the avg. price of the last two sessions. Not a good sign, notes Alpha Trends.

On the Actual Home Front

  • Calculated Risk breaks down the New Homes sales numbers here and here.
  • We've heard just a tad about probs. in California and Arizona. How about some mid Atlantic, via the Housing Bubble Blog.
  • So what does Bill Gross think? Millionaire Now has the details.

Deeper Thoughts

  • Roger Ehrenburg with an overview on market dislocations.
  • Another Roger on sector reallocations.
  • Aleph Blog on money market malaise.
  • Pathetic volume and tired New Highs, not good for continuing this rally, via Helene Meisler (subscription required).

He's Gone

  • Ever have the privilege of catching a White Sox game broadcast by Hawk Harrelson?
  • Yes, he is probably the biggest homer (home team rooter/announcer) in sports, and no, I'm not a big White Sox fan other than I kind of see them as the Mets of Chicago. But he's a good listen, in my opinion.
  • Anyway, turns out he has a place in baseball history. Hawk invented the batting glove.
  • Speaking of history, if you had the Orioles +14 on Wednesday, you lost. Yes, the Rangers gave up an early field goal, but then poured it on for a 30-3 laugher, the most runs scored in a game since 1897. And despite only tacking on 9 runs in the second game of the doubleheader, Texas set the record for total runs in a twinbill.
  • Speaking of 1897, here are some tidbits from the season, via Deadspin.
  • And as they note, it's a long way from the all time record, the Teatotallers dramatic 56-54 win over the Gashouse Gorillas in 1946.
  • Just an aside, but the above post is the best I've ever seen. It's a scientific breakdown of the most famous baseball game ever.
