HA who believes this one, these articles just keep getting funnier and funnier, reminds me of the repetitive garbage back just 3 years ago when nearly every fool said that the sub prime mortgage mess was contained and that the real estate market would NOT feel it, they got that really fucking wrong, now didn't they. There wont be a second dip recession because the economy is still in the same damn recession, adding stimulus to an economy to prop it up and make it look like its growing is not true economical growth. Cramer: A Double-Dip Recession Wonât HappenâHereâs Why cnbc.com | July 13, 2010 | 07:10 PM EDT Thereâs a disconnect between the ivory tower, those economics Ph.D.s who predict weâll suffer a double-dip recession, Jim Cramer said Tuesday, and the companies at street level. Thatâs why the Dow can soar 147 points, with the S&P 500 running 1.5%, despite the academicsâ doom and gloom. If these âeggheads,â as Cramer called them, listened to individual companies, rather than focusing on Washington or blaming the banks for everything thatâs gone wrong, they wouldnât be predicting a double dip. Because for the first time in a long time, the fundamentals of individual companies now matter more. Look at CSX [ CSX 51.72 -0.74 (-1.41%) ], which reported earnings this morning. This railroad is the perfect barometer of the economyâs health, and it said that things are good: âEconomic recovery expected to continue driving growth,â was the quote. Every segment of the business, intermodal, merchandise â everything except coal â was up in double digits. And CSX is hiring again. The developing world may be leading this train, with the US as the caboose, Cramer said, but âweâre moving again, and thatâs what counts.â Novellus [ NVLS 28.26 +1.55 (+5.80%) ] yesterday quieted critics who had predicted a drop in pricing for the companyâs dynamic random access memory (DRAM) and flash memory. âIâm not sure weâll see those decreases,â management said, thanks to continued demand. DRAM and flash sell into the two biggest end markets of tech, Cramer said, computers and gadgets, and sales of both are going strong. Then thereâs aluminum company Alcoa [ AA 11.00 +0.13 (+1.20%) ], which noted, âIt seems that some airlines, or the airlines sector in general, is turning the corner.â Also: Orders are âup significantly.â And donât overlook this: âGrowth is pretty much in all regions driven very strongly by increased global activities.â All of these are bullish statements that fly in the face of the pundits. And âthe companies are telling us the truth,â Cramer said. People worry about job creation, too, but the focus has been on small businesses and their struggles to grow. Cramer, however, thinks companies like CSX, Novellus and Alcoa could take the lead instead. He said that small business often follows big business in this respect, and more people will have to be put to work based on what these companies are saying, âprobably sooner rather than later.â So given this, who knows what theyâre talking about, the companies themselves or the egghead prognosticators?
