Less Bad

“Less bad” is the new expression along with green shoots these days and it is normal to see an improvement or two after such a massive deterioration of our markets.

Lowe’s topped expectations and the Homebuilder index will be released later this morning, and Home Depot reports tomorrow morning. Buffett increased his stake in Wells Fargo and banks are trending higher in the pre- market.

The futures are catching a bid this morning although the Nikei took a hit. CNBC has some bankers trying to talk their book as they criticize the politicizing of the lending process.

So broken.
