Greg Valliere Quotes

If I was a member of Congress I'd try to press him on is there a light at the end of the tunnel on measured rate hikes, and at what point the Fed decides enough is enough. You have to think after the August move we probably are in the eighth inning, but I doubt he'll be that explicit.

The big play from a regulatory standpoint has to be healthcare in general and the drug stocks in particular. If it looks like, around Halloween [Oct. 31], Bush is going to win, I think the drug stocks will do very well. If it looks like Gore is going to win, there could be cloud over the sector. Gore's rhetoric, starting at the convention in L.A. until now, has been quite anti-business for many industries and that has been troubling for many investors.

I personally think the 1992 analogy has been overdone.

[Any points the President can score in the market these days are welcome.] One of the oldest cliches about the market is that it hates uncertainty, ... And uncertainty has certainly been intensified by the all this public debate over Iraq within Bush's inner circle.

Politically this is very, very clever, ... It puts the White House on the defensive on the whole issue of job outsourcing. There could be some Republicans (in Congress) intrigued by this. But it's way too premature to assume it could be enacted.

By the middle of the fall, if there's a feeling that the economy has withstood this blow, then Congress might be able to return to a more traditional agenda.

Members of Congress, especially Republicans, are beginning to realize that around the country, even among their supporters, they're being viewed as dysfunctional, unable to get anything done. So I think the Republicans are starting to come together, at least a little in the Senate on immigration.

Even people who don't like Microsoft we talked to late yesterday were shocked. They felt this could give Microsoft an opening in the appeals process to claim, 'We didn't get due process, this judge was too impetuous, he moved too quickly.' Considering how great a job Jackson has done, for him to give Microsoft an opening at this late date was a little surprising.

I think what we all are hoping for is resolution sooner rather than later. I'm not sure that Gore's speech at noon today would reinforce the belief that this would get wrapped up quickly. (Some) segments of the market will do well whether it's Microsoft or drug stocks, but I think it might be a little bit premature.

Things aren't as bad as Jason (Furman) said but they're not as good as the labor secretary said, ... The markets clearly were expecting a better number than 96,000. You've got to wonder ... are corporations sending us a signal that the underlying economy is not as good as people thought?

I thought all along Edwards was the logical choice, ... He's so talented as a campaigner, and he brings a lot of enthusiasm, sex appeal and pizzazz to the ticket.

You have to say that it could be a hollow victory, a pyrrhic victory, for the eventual winner if you will. We had a situation back in 1876, I'm told, where Rutherford B. Hayes won, but he was called Ruther 'fraud' B. Hayes for his whole term, and I think there's going to be a lot of sniping at the eventual winner as someone perhaps who won a tainted election,

I think at the Fed they believe we're getting near full employment. You've got unit labor costs going up. If we get a very strong jobs number, I don't totally rule out a 50-basis point (half of a percentage point) hike in June.

The end is near. To get a resolution is the biggest story of all. Beyond that all sectors that you would expect to do well -- drugs, energy, defense stocks, utilities -- they will all do very well tomorrow morning. [I see] an across-the board-relief rally.

I really think when you talk about pocketbook issues that affect the electorate, people think about the Nasdaq (composite index) and the Dow Jones (industrial average). If we got another rate hike and the market sold off on that, I think people would be displeased. If there's no rate hike on August 22 and the market rallies, you've got to say that helps (Al) Gore.
