I’ve been fortunate to get a few things right lately. First off, my comment that Apple stock was over-weighted in the Nasdaq 100 was followed by a surprise announcement that the Nasdaq decided to rescale their index.
Next, my blog post from last week commenting on the need to get to a budget agreement was followed by – a budget agreement.
So what’s next? Assuming I’ve found a genie in a bottle, please turn your attention to the recent news that Japan’s nuclear accident has been assigned the highest possible severity level – right up there with Chernobyl. This is based on the International Nuclear Events Scale, which goes from Level 1 (an anomalous event) to a Level 7 (major accident).
