U.S. Unemployment Drops to 9.0 Percent!
I have a suggestion. Why don't we just say the unemployment rate is 4.0 percent, except for the people who are out of work because of the last recession? Why spend time and money actually calling people, when we can just tell people what we want them to hear. Perhaps we should try that with earnings estimates. "We will stick with the numbers in our quarterly forecast as we would have met them had it not been for the case sales were lower than expected." How about sporting events? We can just give the better team a higher score since, normally, they would have won anyway.
What about you? Do you see opportunities in these markets?
