    The World Economy is Collapsing, people are starving, but the US Market Makers are too busy in printing money and PUMPING the Stock prices Artificially to make insiders trillionaire without working!
    ENJOY ABSURD COMPANY VALUATIONS, While the Economy is COLLAPSING and Corporate Revenues are TANKING!
    Enjoy Free Capital Gains in the US Stock Market while the Corporate Revenues are tanking and the Economy is Collapsing! US Stock Market is a “GET QUICK RICH” Scheme!
    Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI) was 17,000 in 2016, with better economic fundamentals and higher corporate earnings. However, thanks to the Collapsing Economy, Coronavirus Pandemic, Tanking Corporate revenues and earnings, Skyrocketing unemployment, Trade Wars, Record INFLATION levels, and Heavy Stock Dilutions, Dow Jones Industrial Average (^DJI) BUBBLE has almost Doubled!
    S&P 500 (^GSPC) was at 1600.00 with better fundamentals and higher corporate earnings in 2016. Now it is sitting at ABSURD 4300.00 with TERRIBLE Fundamentals, Collapsing Economy, HEAVIER Corporate and National Debt and way lower corporate revenues and earnings!
    The World Countries are refusing to accept the US Dollar as international reserve currency due to the HEAVY Dollar PRINTING!
    US Stocks are INSANELY OVERVALUED and OVERBOUGHT! US Stock Market is a MEGA BUBBLE right now!!!
    Barclays downgraded the megacap technology sector to market weight given their stretched valuations.

    The US Stock & Oil Price BUBBLE
    $^FTSE conversation
    For how long will the US Government continue to PUMP the US Stock Prices artificially? Everyone knows that the US Market is in the MEGA BUBBLE; it is even more overvalued than Tulip Mania Bubble! The US Stocks are INSANELY OVERVALUED and OVERBOUGHT! The Valuations are impossible to justify!
    For how long can the US Government run this fraudulent Stock BUBBLE, while Corporate revenues are tanking, Corporate and National Debt is Astronomical, the Valuations are beyond insanity, Political polarization is at max, there are ongoing and upcoming wars, the real resources are limited, Economy is Collapsing, Competition is intense, the Stock Dilutions are at record highs, everything is getting worse, China, Russia, and many other countries are set to ditch the US Dollar as an international reserve currency.
    Now there are 100,000s of companies worldwide competing for $1 revenue! The US Companies that barely generate revenue of $1-2 million are trading at $50-60 Billion Market values, while in Asia, the same companies with better fundamentals, 100 times more revenues, are trading at 99% less market value! The US Company valuations DO NOT MAKE Sense at all! Why would one invest in US Stock Tulip Mania while he/she can buy the 1000 times better company share for a 99% cheaper price?
    The US Stock Market is a MAJOR PONZI SCHEME designed to patch fraudulent pension systems in the US temporarily! There is NO PROPER Revenue Collection by the IRS since 2016. Taxes are extremely Low, and Nobody is paying custom duties! People want more free money without working, more free checks, more capital gains, more stock hypes every day! This fraudulent "no need to work" policy of the US Government will END TERRIBLY very soon! Inflation is skyrocketing, but the Government is lying about inflation!

    I am up by $250 Million since March 2020 thanks to the US Government and the Stock PUMPING Festival in the US that has started in March 2020! NOBODY Needs to work anymore! JUST BUY the US Stocks to get 300-400% RISK-FREE RETURN in a few weeks! THE US STOCK MARKET is a FREE MONEY ATM! BUY STOCKS AND GET QUICK RICH! Everyone will be a BILLIONAIRE! Even Janitors will have at least $50 Million in their Broker Accounts! EVERYBODY IS ALL IN!
    Buy the US Stocks at these INSANE LEVELS TO GET QUICK RICH! Nobody cares about Absurd Valuations!
    EU, Russia, China, Turkey, India vow to create alternative reserve currency to ditch the US dollar, as the US Government continues to Print unlimited Dollars to PUMP the US Stock Prices artificially!
    DESPITE Tanking Corporate Revenues, ABSURD Valuations, Record Corporate Loss, Record high Corporate and National Debt, Record Stock Dilutions, Collapsing Economy, Pandemic, Upcoming and Ongoing wars, Political polarization, limited real resources, intensive competition drying growth opportunities, the US Government continues to PUMP the US Stock BUBBLE artificially! Everyone knows that the US Stock Market is a Fraudulent system! It will COLLAPSE BIG TIME very soon!
    The US Government is PUMPING Oil Prices artificially, DESPITE Shrinking Demand and Exponentially rising supply! Oil price went up from $1.00 to $60.00 in no time FOR NO REASON, thanks to FED. Soon, Oil will be USELESS and WORTHLESS, but the US Market Makers are seeing commodities as PUMP and DUMP Schemes!!!

    A unique company with an irreplaceable data base, but priced for perfection. How high the moon?

    In the SEC filing, Equifax noted that it faces more than 240 class-action lawsuits related to the breach, and is cooperating with investigations by all 50 states’ attorneys general and an alphabet soup of governmental agencies (SEC, FINRA, CFPB, FTC and FCA among them). In addition, the company has received subpoenas from the SEC and a U.S. Attorney’s Office in Georgia regarding stock sales by executives after the breach was discovered but before it was disclosed.

    Charges equal to the low end of that estimate were accounted for in Equifax’s standard earnings number, which lives up to the U.S.’s Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, or GAAP, resulting in the $87.5 million total. However, the company stripped the charges from a non-GAAP earnings figure that it provided, which allows Equifax to claim that profits are growing even as it takes a hit from the data breach.

    To help with the costs of all that, Equifax said in the filing that it has insurance specifically for cybersecurity-related instances, with a $7.5 million deductible. However, it admitted that it doesn’t know how much, or even if, that insurance policy will pay.

    Boss Shorty
    This means Bad News is coming ------ sell now before it is too late

    The company has yet to announce a date for its third-quarter earnings and management's first conference call with Wall Street analysts since it disclosed the breach last month. That is a departure from its normal practice of scheduling earnings by mid-October.

    I'm starting a social media campaign to call identify to the public any company that invests in EFX. I will make known any actively managed investment companies first. For anyone reading this who is employed by such a company you have until 1/1/2018 to divest of any interest in Equifax or its subsidiaries. If you run a passive index fund for any index containing EFX (e.g. S&P 500 fund) I'll give you a pass. EFX probably won't be an S&P 500 component much longer. Continue to hold EFX in your portfolios at your own peril. Your customers may decide to invest elsewhere when they find out about the choice you've made..

    I think the most destructive comment hurting the price of this stock occurred when the CEO answered a question before a congressional committee. He was asked if all your data encrypted?
    His answer: I DO NOT KNOW.
    A real vote of confidence for everyone!

    Following the massive breach at Equifax revealed in September this year led to the loss of information on at least 145.5 million people, another massive leak linked directly to Equifax and friends. These are very valuable data fields, constituting the essential details of a core of 120 million American households.

    Information on more than 120 million American households was sitting in a massive database found left exposed on the web earlier. It included an extraordinary range of personal details on residents, including addresses, ethnicity, interests and hobbies, income, right down to what kind of mortgage the house was under and how many children lived at the property. In total, there were 248 different data fields for each household, according to the researcher who uncovered the leak data this week.
    It was simple to determine who the data was linked to, either by looking at the details or by crosschecking with previous leaks. The data was sitting in an Amazon Web Services storage "bucket," left open to anyone with an account, which are free to obtain.
    As long as they knew the right URL to visit, an Amazon Web Services user could retrieve all the data, which was left online by marketing analytics company Alteryx. It was apparent that the firm had purchased the information from Experian, as part of a dataset called ConsumerView, on top of which Alteryx provides marketing and analytics services.
    Vickery thinks the data was part of a product - the Alteryx Designer With Data - that sells for around $38,995 per license. In its own marketing for the Experian service, Alteryx notes that the database contains "consumer demographics, life event, direct response, property, and mortgage information for more than 235 million consumers."

    Short order in at $185. Refis will be hit by new fee, and real estate market is out of control. A house near me, abutting a freeway, 1400 sf, just sold for over a million bucks. I am putting my house on the market, and renting an apartment with the interest on my gain. Within 3 years, I will be able to buy it back at a 30% discount, at least. Bankruptcies will explode in a year, because people are spending money they don't have. Recessions are caused by too much debt. During the years leading up to the Great Depression, it was people buying the new technology-vacuum cleaners, radios, refrigerators, etc., "on time." Which was a loan from the seller. Well, people bought more than they could afford to pay back. The same is happening, today. People are spending $1200 for an i-phone, and taking equity out of their houses to finance their spending. This will not end well. It might take a few years to work out, but keep some cash on the side, because in a recession, cash is king.

    Does anybody know how to have personal credit information totally removed / deleted from Equifax?
    I was just told today by an Equifax representative in the Philippines, that a correspondence mailed out from Equifax was a "computer system error". This company is reckless with our information.

    Allow me to thank again to Equifax for handling our information so carelessly and making our life miserable. Moving between mobile operators required me to drive to the branch so they will have to identify me in person although my excellent credit. I wish to the new year to go chapter 11 or at loss substantial oration of your market value.

    The Equifax breach will cause more damage than any other data breach in world history. If the Social Security Administration had posted all of their data on a public website for download, the damage would not be as great as what Equifax has done. The Equifax breach includes not only SSN's but entire credit histories, associations with co-signers, drivers license numbers, address records, and much more. This is the apocalypse of all data breaches. A Hollywood writer couldn't come up with a worse scenario.
