....just saw the news on Bloomberg TV. I have to laugh -- when it was heading up, they were all screaming $150! 150! 150! Now that the economies are tanking, they're coming in at $70! 70! 70! How much do you want to bet if/when the DJX crosses 10K they raise oil over $100 again? The herd mentality strikes again. Similarly, last week S&P downgrades GM's credit, and does other 'rating' changes that it's known for as a 'ratings' entity. Ooooh----Ahhhh, cue the spooky music!! Puh-lease. These guys have lost all credibility in the world of financial 'information' or 'analysis' and yet folks still listen to them? I swear, anything said by nearly all Street analysts in the past several years has been an absolute joke, and the more I learn about the markets, the more pathetic/sad/scary it is that their 'analysis' still holds so much sway in the investing and news world.  Sorry for the rant.  This past summer, I read a great book on the matter of Street analysis called "Full of Bull" ... well worth the reading, if you want confirmation of how shady/sleazy the Street 'analysis' community is.
