Janus' Gross says Trump will be one-termer, in failure for populism

President-elect Donald Trump will last no more than four years in the White House, a period when corporations and Wall Street will retain the upper hand over the struggling workers who helped elect him in a populist wave, bond manager Bill Gross of Janus Capital said on Wednesday.

In his monthly investment outlook, "Populism Takes a Wrong Turn," Gross also said "there is no new Trump bull market in the offing," and that global diversified investors should be "satisfied" with 3 percent to 5 percent annual returns.

"The Trumpian Fox has entered the Populist Henhouse, not so much by stealth but as a result of Middle America's misinterpretation of what will make America great again," Gross wrote.

"Trump's tenure will be a short four years but is likely to be a damaging one for jobless and low-wage American voters," Gross added. "I write in amazed, almost amused bewilderment at what American voters have done to themselves."


National Job Openings at Record High, Trump Struggles To Fill Top Posts

You are a pro-active self-starter who knows instinctively what you’re supposed to do and is capable of articulating exactly what that is to your team and also to us as soon as possible. You are comfortable with uncertainty and thrive on lack of clarity and vision. You are a team player, no matter which of our ideologically contra-indicated teams you work for in this competitive, cut-throat, backstabbing, collegial environment. You are constantly thinking about how you can challenge norms and/or uphold them. You are a disruptor always innovating new ways to defend the status quo.

We are a dynamic team of entrepreneurs and business leaders who know how to run successful businesses by identifying and exploiting inefficiencies in markets and old people. Our leadership team represents combined decades of experience meeting and/or not meeting shareholder goals and guiding companies through self-created corporate challenges. We have no experience whatsoever in government and are pretty fucking fuzzy on its philosophical underpinnings let alone what it’s supposed to do. We want to hear your ideas!

The Strange History of Steve Bannon and the Biosphere 2 Experiment

Biosphere 2 was meant to lay groundwork for future space colonization missions, as well as act as an environmental and social experiment: Eight scientists were to be locked into a three-acre dome containing five different earthly biomes for two years, from September 1991 to September 1993. The goal was to see if humans could survive and become self-sufficient in a "closed system"—that is, one that was not supposed to have any supplies coming in or out. Texas philanthropist Ed Bass, who’d inherited his family’s oil fortune but took on ecological causes, poured the $200 million project, but hired Bannon in 1993 to stop the huge runaway costs of the experiment gone awry. Read more about the Biosphere 2 experiment, here.

Bannon spoke out on climate change concerns more than 20 years ago

Orlando to buy Pulse nightclub, turn it into memorial

ORLANDO — The city of Orlando has announced plans to purchase the Pulse nightclub and eventually convert the site of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history into a memorial.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer told the Orlando Sentinel on Monday that the city has reached a deal to buy the gay nightclub for $2.25 million.

Dyer says the site should probably remain as-is for the next 12 to 18 months, as it has become a gathering place for mourners.


More Floridians have already voted than the total in Bush v. Gore

More than 6 million Floridians have already cast their ballots in early voting, either in person or by absentee ballot.

That is more than the total 5.9 million votes cast by registered voters in 2000. George W. Bush versus Al Gore was the closest race in recent history.

steve schale sez:

On Sunday, I took my Turkish crew to the St. Mark AME Church for a Souls to the Polls service with Val Demings and Kamia Brown, after which we visited an early voting site nearby. The lines at noon were already quite long, so it came as no surprise that Orange County (Orlando) set a turnout record. And so did Osceola, and Hillsborough, Broward, Palm Beach, Duval, Leon, Pinellas, and yes, Miami Dade.

Total Ballots cast: 6,419,154

Total Vote By Mail: 2,549,633 (41.5%)

Total Early Vote: 3,869,521 (58.5%)

Democrats: 2,558.072 (39.85%)

Republicans: 2,470,823 (38.49%)

NPA: 1,390,259 (21.66%)

Total Margin: DEM +1.36%

Tech workers give 60 times more cash to Clinton than to Trump

For every $1 that employees at the world's biggest technology companies donated to Donald Trump, they gave $60 to Hillary Clinton.

People who work at Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft, Facebook and Amazon.com sent a total of $3 million to the Democratic presidential nominee ahead of the 2016 election on Tuesday, compared with just over $50,000 to her Republican challenger, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Said differently, as of Oct. 19, Clinton attracted 97 percent of big tech money, with the remaining 3 percent split between Trump, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein.

Silicon Valley and Seattle, home to the technology giants, have long leaned blue, but this sort of one-sidedness is unprecedented and speaks to the technology industry's rejection of Trump's attitudes toward minorities and women and concern around pressing issues like climate change (which he called a hoax) and immigration.

"Ninety-seven percent support of Clinton is mindblowing and really suggests that we're pounding the table," said Kate Mitchell, a partner at venture firm Scale Venture Partners in Foster City, California. "We think her business policies are going to be friendlier."

JPMorgan expects 3% stock market rally WHEN Clinton wins

JPMorgan analysts expect the S&P 500 to recover 3 percent from Friday's close if Hillary Clinton wins the U.S. presidential election Tuesday.

If Clinton wins, the S&P 500 should move back toward 2,150, and European and emerging market stocks should rise 3 to 4 percent, Mislav Matejka and other JPMorgan analysts said in a Monday note. They agreed with the consensus view that a Clinton victory remains more likely than a Donald Trump win.

The S&P 500 closed at 2,085.18 on Friday, posting a nine-day losing streak for the first time since 1980 as the race between Trump and Clinton appeared to tighten. The index fell about 3 percent over that time.
