Media Appearance: Kudlow & Company (7/10/07)

Kc128x88

Its the regular appearance on Kudlow tonite: And, we’ve gotten the old band together — Marketwatch’s Herb Greenberg, and Dynamic Fund’s Noah Blackstein — everybody but Ringo (John Rutledge!)

We will obviously be covering today’s market activity — Dow off 1.09%, Nazz down 1.16%, but the SPX got really schmiessed, down 1.42%.

Other factors: Crude Oil (~$73), the Housing Spillover and the Consumer Slowdown — including the big jump in Revolving Credit (+9.8% in May) — and (of course!) Earnings.

I was particularly mindful of the Financials getting shellacked:

Goldman Sachs . . . GS . . . .  -$5.90     -2.64%
Morgan Stanley
. . . MS . . . . -$2.20    -3.03%
Merryll Lynch
. . . MER . . . . -$3.02     -3.54%
Lehman Brothers
. . LEH . . . -$2.20    -3.03%
Bear Stearns
. . . BSC  . . . . -$5.93     -4.12%
Amex
. . . AXP . . . . . . . . -$2.14    -3.43%
CitiCorp
. . . C  . . . . . . . . -$0.60    -1.163%
JP Morgan Chase
. . JPM . . .-$1.28    -2.62%
Bank of America
. . . BAC . . -$0.45    -0.92%

Should be interesting . . .

Well, that was fun –

And while I did like that pink tie, as you can see from our earlier mention of it, I was referring to the yellow one!

For sure, Larry knew not to let me answer the Jobs question — that was a hanging curveball, and this is All-Star week – it was a home run waiting to be crushed!

Oh, What a Tangled Web We Weave . . .

When we practise to blog! (With all due apologies to Sir Walter Scott).

This very cool java app is a relational toy from Touchgraph. They use Google’s network of connectivity between websites to display what sites you are connected to:

I get different responses depending upon whether I use the top level URL (http://bigpicture.typepad.com/) or the sub-levels (Real Estate, Economy, etc.)

This is the bigpicture.typepad.com/comments. Note the middle left side purple are DRM/digital media related links, while the bottom center green  all Housing related. Economics gets kinda buried in the center pile.

(FYI: I seem to make it crash every 3rd request, but I run a dozen apps at once . . .)

Years ago, I looked at a very cool software company that did something very similar to this. Gotta dig that up . . .
