It's good to be back but sad to read of the passing of longtime repected Poster Yzerman #19,
If there could be a moment of silence in Repect for his passing, he will be missed.

BANGKOK (AP) — Another jump in Spain's borrowing costs weighed on world stock markets Monday
amid fears one of Europe's biggest economies could eventually need a bailout.
The most recent worries in Europe are concentrated on Spain and Italy.
The yield on Spain's 10-year government bonds shot past the 6 percent mark Monday amid doubts
its harsh austerity plans will be effective in reducing its debt mountain.
Italy's borrowing rate rose to 5.52 percent last week.

The rising yields mean those countries will have to pay more to borrow money and could force more
cuts in government spending. That would hinder growth that is needed to extricate Europe from its debt morass.


Alcoa Inc (NYS:AA - News) opened the earnings season with a bang, reporting a first-quarter profit on Tuesday
instead of the expected loss. That positive surprise foretold a trend.
Of the 32 companies in the S&P 500 that have reported earnings so far,
Thomson Reuters data showed that 75 percent - or two dozen
- have beaten Wall Street's expectations.

This week will start one of the busiest weeks of the quarterly earnings
reporting period. About 86 companies in the Standard & Poor's 500 are expected to post results,
according to Thomson Reuters Director's Report.

Yields on Spain's government 10-year bonds, which reflect the risk investors attach to owning
Spanish debt, have risen above 6 percent, a level that has proved a trigger point for other
troubled euro zone countries.


"I don't think Spain will need any kind of external support," Juncker said.
"I would like to invite financial markets to behave in a rational way.
Spain is on track."

Jean-Claude Juncker, who chairs the Eurogroup of euro zone finance ministers

Famous last words? Time will tell. These kind of problems are usually understated and in reality,
worse then admitted to. Italy is another problem around the corner.
Trouble in these 2 countries will put continuing pressure on the Eurozone.

Yesterday, DOW was Down on disappointing earnings from IBM, Intel, Qualcom, ect.
Nine out of 10 groups in the S&P 500 (SPX) retreated today as financial and technology
shares had the biggest losses. Both groups are still up more than 17% this year,
for the biggest gains in the benchmark index.

Good earnings for the most part so far,
Disappointing Initial Claims, sent futures back a bit.
Hoping that the overall earnings helps the Market have a postive day.

"On Wednesday, April 18th, the NBPA Executive Committee cast an 8-to-0 vote that it lost confidence
in Derek Fisher's ability to act as Union President and requested Derek's resignation," the statement read.
"The Executive Committee based its decision on numerous instances over the past six months where
Fisher engaged in conduct detrimental to the union, including acting in contravention of the players' best interests."

Derek Fisher has been asking for an independent review of practices
and financial dealings of Billy Hunter and the Players Association.

% of all union disbursements to employees and officers between 2006-2011
Billy Hunter 46% ($13,361,183)
All Other Union Employees 54% ($15,796,762)

I think the above numbers pretty much sum it up.
Exactly who is really looking after the players best interests.
Suspect that when the dust clears, Hunter will be on his way out.

Sell in May and Go Away
Since 1962, a strategy of selling in May then buying back stocks in October
would have grown $10,000 invested in 1962 to some $620,000 by today.
Doing the reverse, that is to say buying every April and selling at the end
of the following October would have had a slightly negative annual return.
