Rosenberg Daily Soundbites

  • Equities are still flying high; bonds are quiet after yesterday’s drubbing; the only reason why the Greek debt rollover being proposed isn’t considered a default is because it is “voluntary”
  • The Richmond Fed manufacturing index did rebound in June to +3 from -6 but that still represented the second weakest reading since last September
  • The Johnson Redbook survey is flashing +2.5% YoY sales growth through June 25th compared with a target of +3.8%
  • The Conference Board version of consumer confidence surprised to the downside in June
  • Supply shortage of long duration product? The share of Treasury debt outstanding that is 10 years and higher in maturity is less than 10% - half what it was a decade ago
  • The Philly Fed leading index of the U.S. economy in May slipped to its lowest level since October of last year
