Biggest Bubbles in History-Stocks, Bonds, Dollar

Former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says, “I think we have three of the biggest bubbles in history.  The bond market, stock market and the U.S. dollar . . . and something is going to go.”  Roberts thinks, “This is possibly one of the riskiest years in Western civilization.”  When it comes to recent revelations about the extensive use of drones to kill terrorists, both foreign and domestic, Dr. Roberts says, “It’s not just unconstitutional, murder is illegal.”  When it comes to drone strikes on U.S. citizens suspected of terror, everyone should be concerned.  Roberts says, “Now, the principle is if the government says you are guilty, you are—period.  No evidence is needed for your termination.”  Join Greg Hunter as he goes One-on-One with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts.

This North American Miner is Sitting on a 30-Year Supply of a Scarce Metal: NGC

Smartphones are exploding in popularity. What was once considered a tool just for the tech-savvy or on-the-go business professionals has become a ubiquitous tool in communication. 
Even the most pessimistic estimates project 400 million units being shipped in 2013. This is up from a little more than 50 million in 2006.
This high demand has launched a marketing war between the various handset makers. Leaders in the space -- Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL), Samsung (OTC: SSNLF) and Nokia (NYSE: NOK) -- spend billions on research and development, and marketing efforts to create and popularize the next hot smartphone.
They know that by gaining the loyalty of customers, it's likely that they will remain customers for life, creating a long-term income stream. 
While people can make money by investing directly into the smartphone makers, savvy investors can step above the market share war and profit handsomely. (more)

Peter Schiff – Speaking Off The Cuff About Real Estate And Investing

from FinancialSurvivalNet
We ran into Peter Schiff earlier today. He was answering questions from the group. He’s not convinced that the real estate boom we’ve been seeing is for real. He thinks it’s all part of the funny money Ponzi scheming Federal Reserve plot to make us all believe that things are better than they appear to be. Inflation is roaring along at nearly 6 percent, notwithstanding the government’s claims that it’s less than 2 percent. Interest rates have no where to go but up and this will eventually cause real estate prices to crater.

Households On Foodstamps Rise To New Record

from Zero Hedge:
While hardly presented by the mainstream media with the same panache dedicated to the monthly ARIMA-X-12 seasonally-adjusted, climate-affected, goal-seek devised non-farm payroll data, the three month delayed Foodstamp number is according to many a far greater attestation to the “effectiveness” of the Obama administration to turn the economy around. And far greater it is: since his inauguration, the US has generated just 841,000 jobs through November 2012, a number is more than dwarfed by the 17.3 million new foodstamps and disability recipients added to the rolls in the past 4 years. And since the start of the depression in December 2007, America has seen those on foodstamps and disability increase by 21.8 million, while losing 3.6 million jobs. End result: total number of foodstamp recipients as of November: 47.7 million, an increase of 141,000 from the prior month, and reversing the brief downturn in October, while total US households on foodstamps just hit an all time record of 23,017,768, an increase of 73,952 from the prior month. The cost to the government to keep these 23 million households content and not rising up? $281.21 per month per household.

Traders Could See This Innovative Stock Double in a Year: SSYS

Imagine the ability to print human tissue to help cure disease. Or being able to create your own 3D toy figurines right at home. These are becoming real-life possibilities, thanks to the advent of 3D printing technology.
3D printers are machines that use special plastic-like materials to literally print, or create, small hand-held objects. The printer works by inking out tiny strips of plastic that are deposited on top of each other. The plastic strips fuse during the printing process, creating a hard, durable final product, shaped and sized to your specifications.
With the ability to create objects ranging from medical marvels to toy trinkets, 3D printing is becoming increasingly popular. And so are 3D printing stocks.
Currently, there are four publicly traded stocks in the professional 3D printing industry: 3D systems (NYSE: DDD), Proto Labs (NYSE: PRLB), the newly public ExOne (NASDAQ: XONE), and my favorite, Stratasys (NASDAQ: SSYS).
What makes Stratasys stand out from its competitors -- in addition to a highly bullish chart and strong fundamentals -- is its focus on large-scale industrial clients, rather than small-scale consumers. The company also offers the largest range of 3D printing materials in the industry, holds over 500 patents, and has received more than 20 awards for its innovative technology.
From a technical perspective, the stock appears strong. Shares are on a major uptrend and are up more than five-fold from their October 2011 low, near $18, to a recently hit all-time high, near $92.
SSYS Stock Chart
At present, the stock has slightly pulled back off this high, presenting a potentially profitable buying opportunity for traders. Support lies around $73.32. Overhead resistance is at $92.30. If the stock can break $92.30, no historical resistance would be in sight and shares could soar. (more)

CBO – The Coming Raid on Social Security

brucekrasting.com / By BRUCE KRASTING / 

Every politician in America knows that Social Security (SS) is a third rail. Any Pol who tries to mess with the country’s largest and most popular entitlement program is going to have the likes of the AARP coming after them. It’s not possible to win an election on a platform that advocates cutting back SS.
With that in mind, I find it interesting to report that a very credible source is now predicting that Obama AND Congress will take action over the next 24 months that will substantially undermine both the long and short-term health of SS. The legislative raid on SS will certainly total in the hundreds of billions, it could top $1T over the next fifteen years.
So who is this “credible source”? And just how is this raid going to happen? The source of this information is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO); the following is how it will play out:
SS consists of two different pieces. The Old Age and Survivors Insurance (OASI) and Disability Insurance (DI). Both entities have their own Trust Funds (TF). OASI has a big TF that will, in theory, allow for SS retirement benefits to be paid for another 15+ years. On the other hand, the DI fund will run completely dry during the 1stQ of 2016. By current law, the DI benefits must be cut across-the-board by 30% on the day that the DI TF is exhausted.
