          • Yes some truth about a share buyback, but word is it will be in 2014, possibly even in 2015.

          • Copied and pasted from last Friday's blog (which you can access if you go to Markets link, then type in Markets Live in the search field) - Last Friday's thread is second in line after today's.

            "Can I join the comp at 4780 please" - Fletch the Diplodocus

            If you can point me in the direction of the 4789 figure, much obliged and I'll change your prediction, yet I did a Ctrl+F and keyed in 4789, to no avail. It's not me eyesight that is a problem, it's me brain.

            Until then, you were closer than you expected!

            I still won, but...

          • Tips close at 10:00am on Friday - you can change twice - because I doubt very much the ASX will be similar to today's figure.

            I'll put you down for 4789 for this week until I hear otherwise.

          • Fair Dinkum Jonaze. I think you need to start your day with a bucket of Prozac. If you are not happy with the incredible rally the market has had over the past six months, you are really hard to please!

        • Republican house majority leader Eric Cantor's decision not to play Russian roulette over the debt ceiling should result in a big rally over the coming weeks that frankly I didn't expect...

          There may still be a reckoning at the end of March as Cantor is now demanding a buget not just another continuing resolution (given how far apart the two sides are on buget priorities this will be challenging) however the can has been firmly kicked down the road for a short while and most of the blue chips should rally strongly in response.
