Something To Ponder On A Sunday Night

Below, find something to ponder on a quiet Sunday evening.

…and three quarters of the rally off the 2011 debt ceiling crisis lows is attributable solely to investors paying more for a dollar of those very same artificially inflated earnings via ETF purchases…

Change

(Goldman)

then how is any of this real?
