SilverStag: If these indexes are allowed to cherry-pick their stocks, how can they be an accurate reflection of the economy?
KrispyKritter: SilverStag: If these indexes are allowed to cherry-pick their stocks, how can they be an accurate reflection of the economy?serious? they aren't intended to do so to begin with. that is not their job, position or intention
StrikitRich: Time to buy. From my experience, the indexes always wait until the stock has bottomed before booting them.

Franco: The decline of the mall is directly proportionate to decline of Americans overall standard of living.The old hierarchy->Bloomindales, Saks Fifth etc. -> The actually wealthy shop here.Macy's -> The poor who like to pretend they are rich shop here.JC Penny's was solid middle of the road middle class mom shopped here.Target is the same damn thing wal-mart but for people who don't want to be seen wal mart (lower middle class)Wal-Mart is solid working poor. They are the company store 21st century.Since we gutted the middle class, automated and exported most of the middle class jobs some one had to go. Target and Macy's shouldn't get too comfortable if the trend continues. Wal-Mart has such overhead and costs from the seize of just maintaining it's big box empire it may have hard time in years ahead.
