Becky, <br> Its 75 billion a month. I didn't want you to think I was stupid. I said one hundred without thinking about it. I have the same problem when I'm writing my mkt summary on Thursdays sometimes. By the way, I'm featuring Cat, Apple and Oracle tomorrow. See ya <br> Dave

Becky, <br> You were right, they're going to do one hundred billion a month, six hundred billion in total. We add the thirty billion a month in rollovers and it comes to eight or nine hundred billion by Spring. <br> So what do you think? They are having Ken Heebner and Bob Dole on right now for theri takes. <br> Getting the rates down will encorage people to refinance their mortgages, you know? This should encourage the consumer sector, 70% of the economy. They say inflation is stable but then again there are critics. We should see commodity cost inflation short term. <br> The fed doesn't want to encourage infaltion other than that it promotes employment. <br> Now they are expanding their mandate. Erin was saying that they are going for asset price stability now like they were under Greenspan. We better hope it doesn't bulid up asset bubbles. <br> Dave <br>

Becky, <br>I was watching the show this morning and heard you mention that your family was from Rochester, IN! Who were your parents and how long did you stay in that area? I'm quite a bit older and graduated in 1970, but went to Ball State, and taught art for 31 years at Knox and Plymouth High School. I'm retired from teaching now, and have moved to Greensboro, NC with my wife so she can finish her doctorate in Music Education. I was just interested in the hometown information, keep up the good work. You do a great job on the show. Mark

hey Becky, <br> Wow, lots to say today. I enjoy having more freedom without my dad here. I just talked to Dennis and them at Dunkin for an hour. They couldn't believe Squawk starts at 6. Merrill's site is temporarily down so I figurred I'd write. <br> Usually, me and my dad go to Subway but I don't get back so early. I advise him and then we go to the gym. I don;'t really like the gym though as I'd rather talk to friends. I haven't told Dennis I know you yet. I still haven't figured out how you guys can be so bright eyed at 6. <br> I'd ask you about the race but we live in different states. In Florida, Alex Sink is running against Rick Scott. I already prevoted for Alex Sink. <br> What do you think of the mortgage foreclosure crisis? I talked to a real estate agent today, Luisa. She says if the banks can't find the deeds they are holpless. This is why people live in their house for 24 mos without anything being done about it, you know? Well, I won't take up any more of your time today, I'm sure we both have work to do. See ya <br> Dave <br> ps I follow you on twitter now. I'm tweet 1087. You can follow me too if you want

hey Becky, <br> So did you get up and watch the show today or did you sleep in on your day off? To be honest, I did get up at six and tune in but after Bernanke's speech I drifted off, the next thing I knew Squswk on the Street was on. <br> Andy Ross Sorkin was in your place as you know. <br> The popualar topic on the show today was of coursse qe. They had one guy on there, I don't know who he was but he said that the qe was likley to increase interest rate spreads and <br>thus threaten the easy credit environment we are now in. He said he didn't like this because it could hurt businesses looking for a cheap way to finance. <br> Another guy said that he thought Obama was very antibusiness, you know hurting confidence. He thought while we may need qe what we really need is a more buniess friendly environment. He's right you know we had to do 1099s at my dad's office. They are hard to comply with not to mention the 800pg gorilla that is the Dodd Frank law. I still asy we never should have repealed Glass Steagel. See ya <br> Dave

Becky, <br> Hi, I hope you are having a good weekend. I didn't write yesterday because I figure if I write everyday you will get sick of me. Sometimes I will write everyday but I will always skip a day here and there so we can take a break from each other. <br> We just watched the Steelers beat my Dolphins 23-22. Today is my dad's 74th birthday. <br> I picked up one new reader this week. This morning I advised Mr. Page. He has a saying, figures don't lie but liars can figure. He doesn't even trust the govt. For example, I told him that the savings rate was six percent and he asked me how I could be so sure. <br> He's very interested in your guy, Mr. Buffett. I told him some basic facts about WArren, you know second richest man in the world, worth $45 billion and has big stakes in Gen Re, Coke and Kraft. He suggesteed I follow Berkshire Hathaway. <br> Also, I went to price a desk taoday in anticipation of getting my own office. It was only like 180. And the chair was seven at Stapes you know. I hope I get the office soon but I will probably have to go through my dad and he's having a hernia opearation tomorrow so I'm wating to break it to him after. See you on Squawk. <br> Dave

Becky, <br> I enjoyed the show today. I watch it in its entirety now so I guess I'm up at your hour. I think, now I missed Power Lucnh because we were out having lunch of our own at Subway but I think that what Boone was saying is that he rushed into a deal as a white knight without fully analyzing the transaction. I didn't catch it all. <br> LTCM did the same thing. They just assumed that their models were correct. Let me ask you this, if the market is efficent then why do I spend all day seeking out a company that is undervalued? The prices in the WAll Street journal are certainly not reflecive of all the news known about a stock at one time or we woudln't be able to see a stock being undervalued or overvalued you know? <br> Anyway, I'm working on the banks now. Today I researched the dinosuar that is Morgan Stanley. I found it very hard to do my analysis completely. I find it to be cheap though, PE at 6 and EV mult of four. You could say it takes four yrs of operating income to get to enterprise value. Heavily leveraged though with a small dividend. <br> I wish you were in Florida I'd invite you to the club or we could watch tv you know because I don't think a lady as classy as you would do the bar scene. Someday I'm going to make the treck up to NJ to see you. <br> By the way, we are with Merrill Lynch now. My dad us getting back into equities through merger arbitrage, just kidding. No, but we are in certain funds like Eaton VAnce and we have a thing with Hankcock I think it is where we are exposed to equities but with downside protection. Our broker thinks I'm smart plus I like the researc on the website. Actually, that is what I'm going to go do now. See ya <br> Dave

Becky, <br> My dad didn't like my market commentary this week. He said it was not understandable by the average person who is m my audience. <br> I think I can see his point. For example, on balance sheet analysis I was talking about leverage ratios. I defined free cash flow and then I tried to show the readers that you could break apart the liabilities section and use financing debt, or notes, loans and bonds payable against free cash hlow as a ratio or financig to free cash flow. But if you didn't know what free cash flow was you would have had a problem grasping the concept. I don't know how well versed you are in financial statement analysis. As much as you excel at the news you have to remember I was a bookkeeper for eighteen years. <br> Anyway, I'm going to see Dennis later today so I can explain the entire paper to him.

Becky, <br> Yeah, the thing I wanted to talk to you about was qe 2 actually. Interesting how the market has taken the same exact reaction to it twice now, the fist on Fed day and then after Bernanke's testimony at Jackson Hole. First, the market gets scared, thinking maybe the Fed thinks we're about to double dip. Remember you said, "I wonder what they know that we don't?" Then the market gets a chance to assess the situation and gets bid up, appreciative of the fact that the Fed is prepared to fight deflation. It's been the same scenario twice with big selloffs preceding rallies. Do you think the fed is running out of bullets though, I mean when is the private sector going to take over? I know, when we hit escape velocity but you know, when is that. Your angles on this stuff are better than mine so I'm looking forward to you guys' commentary on the issues this week. By the way, I was also wondering because I know you don't like John McCain, do you just dislike him or do you like Obama? Because I don't. I think the finreg law puts a real stranglehold on growth and firms like Goldman Sachs are just going to find ways around it anyway. Did you read the aricle about this in Forbes, pg. 28 Aug 30 issue? What we need in this country is not only for a qe 2 type scenario to play out but some way to incentivize small and medium sized busineses. <br> Your friend, <br> Dave

hi Becky, <br> I was just looking at somthting you wrote and had somthing brief I wanted to tell you too. <br> You know, the Fed has come out and said that it wasn't shrinking its balance sheet becauae it felt a double dip was immenent. They made the decision merely to hold their options open in case the threat of deflation comes on. I guess that removoes some of the "unusual uncertainity". But you know, it's still a very uncertain market. In fact, my father's depreseed friend from Balimoore I told you about called to tell us about somwthing called the Hildenburg effect, claiming the market is going to crash in Sept.
