Security-related stocks jump on London explosions
Thu Jul 7, 2005 4:10 PM BST

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Shares of security-related companies, including Internet video company IPIX Corp. <IPIX.O> and bomb detection equipment maker Isonics Corp. <ISON.O> jumped sharply on Thursday after explosions ripped through London's transportation rail system.

....

"It is obvious that homeland defence stocks would, unfortunately, rally about any news and concerns over terrorism," Fulcrum Global Partners analyst John Balliotti said in an interview.

....

"It might suggest more military action in the future, more spending on things of that ilk," he said, adding that energy stocks would also outperform.

....


"This will give the (Bush) administration more time to push for big changes, changes in strategy itself. This is a reminder of the homeland security threat," said Chuck Gabriel, analyst at Prudential Securities. "It reinforces the Rumsfeld view and gives him ammunition to spear defense planning towards investment in homeland security, versus the kinds of weapons sytems to fight 2 major wars simultaneously."

4. I Find It Strange That Security Stocks...
have jumped. Especially since it's obvious that there wasn't a whole lot that was secure this morning. Shouldn't security stocks have dropped due to the security failure?

6. fed needed 20 billion in liquid repos on 7/5/05
http://urbansurvival.com/week.htm

From: dcb Jul 5 2005 3:20PM Title: liquidity pump today

"Anyone know why the Fed needed 20 billion in repos today, with none expiring? It's not like rates are even at the target; they are well below around 3.18. So why the burst or money? Usually, such a pump would be the direct result of "something bad" like a terrible employment report.

And the delayed the announcement too, probably to see just how much they needed to add in after the conference call with the other players. Any thoughts? "

dcb


..." It was COMPX post 404071 dated July 5. Here's the link, if you want to see it for yourself: http://clearstation.etrade.com/cgi-bin/bbs?post_id=6658... . dcb, like some other folks I have run across on the boards over the years, thinks their is a direct link between the Fed's liquidity injections into the system, and the markets. I don't know. I'm not an economist, I just pick stocks. But, if you are interested you might want to check it out sometime. In any event, in light of this morning's events, I remembered this post from two days ago and found it interesting. Keep up the good work."

It's OK, paranoia isn't all bad - in point of fact, it's a survival skill. If I had any sway in CONgress, I would sure be asking the Fed all kinds of questions about the $20-billion in "easy money" out this week - in advance of the London attack... more grist for the LIHOP/MIHOP crowd. And I won't even mention the banging on Gold and Silver over the preceding week! Here's hoping a federal grand jury will look at some of the big plays in advanced of events."
