The 5 Highest Yields In The Dow: T, VZ, INTC, CVX, GE

This year is already a sharp contrast to 2013, when the overall stock market rose an impressive 32%. Following the recent pullbacks, the market only needs to shed about 5% more to meet the widely accepted definition of a correction (a decline of at least 10%).
It has been a while since stock investors have had to endure such pain, so further sell-offs may prompt many to seek safer havens -- especially if a full-on correction materializes soon. Since bonds don't generally offer much in the way of returns right now, investors who want to dial back risk but still make money should consider top-flight large-cap stocks with attractive yields.

You might think they'd be hard to find after the market's long run-up, but they're available -- right under our noses, really. To spot them, just scan the list of stocks in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. You'll quickly see the index's top five dividend payers all have generous yields in the 4% to 6% range. And you should be able to count on them for attractive payouts for years to come.  (more)

Coming Global Collapse Will Eclipse The Terror Of 2008

from King World News
Today the man who has been one of the most accurate in the world at calling movements in gold warned King World News that the coming collapse will be far worse than the terror that engulfed the world 5 or 6 years ago. William Kaye, who 25 years ago worked for Goldman Sachs in mergers and acquisitions, also warned KWN that the reaction by global governments to this coming collapse will be incredibly alarming for ordinary citizens.
Eric King: “Based on what you’ve been communicating to KWN, it appears you firmly believe that the 2008/2009 collapse is nothing compared to what’s in front of us?
Kaye: “That’s right. The 2008 collapse was just a warning shot. That’s all it was. And the reaction by governments around the world was simply one of panic….

Will Gold Miners Breakout vs the Metal?

This has been a big one I’ve been watching develop since late last year: Gold Miners vs Gold the Metal. When it comes to the yellow metal, we always hear the arguments, “buy gold, stay away from the companies”, or “the miners are a better value than the metal”. People can make very intelligent arguments for each side, but the trend is really the only thing that matters. For three years, the metal has been the place to be relative to the miners. In fact the GLD:GDX ratio is up 170% during that time span.
Today we’re taking a closer look at this ratio because I believe things are changing. Going forward, I have a good feeling the miners will be the outperformers between the two. I first wrote about this last month as it started to develop. Since then, we’re seeing some further consolidation that I think is worth following up on.
The first one is a daily line chart showing a clean downtrend line from 2012 breaking to start the year. Now, just because a trendline is broken doesn’t necessarily mean the trend has reversed. We just know that the trend has changed; perhaps a sideways or upward trend will be follow.
2-6-14 gdx gld ratio
The next chart takes a little bit of a closer look at this same line chart, but this time we’re focusing more on what could potentially be a false breakdown in November/December. Notice how in January we got back above those June and October lows.  (more)

Yesterday we reported that Steve Quayle’s banker source “V” has informed him that the recent rash of banker “suicides” are part of a hit list that includes dozens of bankers including a supposed high level Citi executive.
Today, none other than Jim Willie himself has provided SD readers with an exclusive report on the banker deaths. 
The Golden Jackass states that the suicided bankers had flipped during prosecution investigation, and were assassinated to prevent insider testimony of bank fraud from reaching the prosecution. 
Willie, who recently sat down with The Doc for an exclusive interview revealing the “Smoking Gun” proving gold rehypothecation by US officials,  emphasizes that we are NOT seeing bad bankers removed, we are witnessing bankers taken out who are on the verge of revealing BIG DATA details.
Willie’s full alert on Wall Street banker suicides is below:
From Jim
The hits are being done by the bad guys to keep men from singing after they flipped during prosecution investigation
All have been working with police teams and continental cops like Interpol
The STLFed guy discovered some Bush giant multi-$B fraud and was ready to report it
The StL Fed economist was hit by the Bush gang, before he sang against them
The London bankers had begun to sing to Interpol on Mafia Vatican connections on massive FOREX fraud thefts
It is unclear which is bigger:  Vatican links to narco money, or links to FOREX fraud theft, or their control room for Nazis

Six steps to becoming debt-free once and for all

Social taboos have dropped left and right since I was a young man raising a family, but one is unlikely to disappear any time soon: holding too much personal debt. But debt need not be a personal tragedy nor a badge of shame. For some, it is simply a practical problem with practical solutions. For others, however, it isn't even the real problem.

In the last few years I've watched two friends handle debt quite differently, and those differences illustrate the real taboo about debt that we seem to ignore. I've changed names and tweaked a few details to keep peace in the world, but what follows are essentially two true stories: those of Joe Able and Tom Baker.  (more)

Marc Faber Fears "A Vicious Circle To The Downside" Is Just Beginning

"It's not just tapering that is putting pressure on markets," Marc Faber warns in thie brief clip. "Emerging economies have practically no growth and we have a slowdown in China that is more meaningful than strategists are willing to believe," he adds and this is "causing a vicious circle to the downside" in inflated asset markets as most of the growth in the world over the last five years has come from emerging markets. Faber suggests Treasuries as a safe haven in the short-term; but is nervous of their value in the long-term as "debt is becoming burdensome on the system."
"A lot of economic growth was driven by soaring asset prices"

On Treasuries:
"For the next three to six months probably they are a better place to be than equities,"
