These sweet stocks may be going sour

Sometimes the market runs out of steam because there just isn’t enough money around. Lack of liquidity is a serious potential problem, though it seems to be one we have essentially decided we’ll never have to deal with again. Whether it be through means monetary or budgetary, both American political parties have been raining liquidity down on the economy for years, and they are getting away with it, for even though many Americans are outraged about this, very few are outraged at both political parties. One or the other political party is always going to be in control, and unfortunately, whichever party that is always tends to see victory as a full-scale endorsement of its own particular way of juking the system.

Of course, as incredulity among many economists grows, doubt is introduced, and the spending frenzy slows. To forestall the inevitable, the party in power must juke the system more and more seriously with each passing year. If you don’t understand why I would say this (some don’t) or understand completely but still think I’m wrong (some do) or can’t see anything wrong with any of that (some, apparently, can’t) then you may not buy my reasons for busting on the stocks on today’s list. For the most part, it comes down to a simple lack of faith. I don’t know exactly how it worked for Tinkerbell, but if enough people stop believing in these stocks, they’re dead meat.

Remember to treat these ideas as just that, ideas, and do your own research before making any investment decision.
