Emergency Asshat of the Week Award: Tom Au

In an unprecedented move, "The Fly" has ordered an extra shiny trophy, made in China (lots of lead involved in production), to be delivered to a man named "Tom Au," who is well deserving of this weeks "Asshat of the Week award."

This man just took out his calculator and declared the DOW will go to 6,000.

He rambles:
But valuations since 1991 (like the 1920s) have reflected a "new world order" of American political dominance that is now being eroded by troubles in the Middle East and elsewhere, and a highly leveraged "new economy" that is looking flimsier by the day. By calling for stocks to return to prewar valuations, I'm stating my belief that the elevated profit margins, returns on equity and earnings growth of the past 15 years that supported recent valuations were a historical aberration, and that a decade (or more) of U.S. stock market progress is about to be wiped out.
Now that's the type of market call "The Fly" respects, yet throws mashed potatoes at.

Fuck the bears who call for the average 10-20% dip. Tom Au is showing you, via elementary mathematical models, how the DOW can 'shave off' 55% of its value, in fairly short order.


What a wonderful world of silliness Mr. Tom Au lives in.

Maybe we can get Mr. Au to square off against Mr. Glassman in a pay-per-view "Are You Smarter than a Retard" contest moderated by Stutterin Gilligan Radigan.
What no asshat award to Stanley O'Neal? Now how the fuck do you announce $5 bil in write downs in 1st week of october and come out with $7.9 bil. OOppsss..... my fault. He needs to get a major asshat award soon.
No, O'neal gets to go to jail, God willing.
Or at least get a taste of the guillotine he's been so quick to wheel out over the last five plus years or so.

I think that's more likely, at this point.
What a tool.
If he's right and you're wrong, are you going to award it to yourself?
Yes iiO, should the market decline to the tune of 50%, I will give myself an asshat award, amongst other things.
