Though the major averages provided few fireworks last week, the majority of major averages did post solid. There were a number of individual stocks that did post significant gains for the week as it continues to be a stock pickers market. For those who do not closely follow the markets, the price action in the averages obscures what is happening in many stocks. There were also a number of losers, with the airlines stocks dropping sharply last Wednesday as former market leader Southwest Airlines (LUV) was down over 10% for the week. The series of new closing highs in the S&P 500 has many of the TV pundits confused. As I stressed in 5 Mistakes to Avoid for the Rest of 2015, changing you investment plan based on any media sound bites is a prescription for disaster. I was pleased that Jeffrey Gundlach, who manages $64 billion in the bond market, seems to feel the same way (Beware of CNBC Pundits). He does not have a high regard for their interest rate analysis, "The commentators on CNBC “don’t get it” Gundlach said, in regard to statements that the recent spike in interest rates was due to fears of Fed tightening." As I noted two weeks ago Are These Key Markets Changing Direction? investors bailed out of equity funds in April and its getting more difficult to find a market bull. The latest posting on the wall of worry is the realization that the Dow Transports have failed to make a new high with the Industrials since last November. The longer-term chart I published on Friday points out that earlier in the bull market the Transports diverged for 21 months before blasting off to the upside. I have yet to see this cited in the press. Certainly, I would be more bullish on the market if the Transports were also making a new high, but there are no warning signs yet of a major correction. The weak economic numbers so far in 2015 have discouraged many investors from buying stocks as according to AAII only 25.2% are bullish as 50% are neutral. This is bullish in my opinion, especially when combined with the generally low public participation in the stock market.

Chaldean Business Leaders Say Apology Weak and Not Enough
By Rita Abro :: Saturday, October 27, 2007 :: 29738 Views :: Article Rating :: Business & Finance, Government & Society, Chaldean Justice League

Michigan, USA - It has turned out to be a community call-to-the-test. Chaldeans in Michigan have taken a firm stance against Miller brewing company.  The South African company was recently put on notice by religious leaders to stop supporting hate groups.  South African Brewery Miller, also known as SABMiller or Miller beer has been giving nearly $100,000 annually to the San Francisco Folsom Street Fair which encourages and promotes Christian mockery and hate. 

A grassroots group of Chaldean community leaders have begun an active and aggressive campaign against Miller in hopes the multinational company will see the error of its way. 

“The Chaldean community has been deeply offended, and to add insult to injury many small business retailers in our community have long been partners in distributing Miller products.  After seeing what Miller is supporting store owners quickly began removing Miller off their shelves,” says Chaldean Justice League board member Remon Jiddou.  “We have teams of volunteers that are driving all through Southeast Michigan showing pictures of what the store owner is supporting when they sell Miller products.  They can see first hand the Christian hate.”

The Chaldean Justice League held a town hall meeting this past Tuesday bringing to light SABMiller’s support of the leather fetish and Christian hate fair.  Representatives from Miller brewing company and their local distributors stubbornly refused the Chaldean Catholic Bishop Ibrahim Ibrahim’s plea to stop supporting the fair and to genuinely apologize for the pain they caused. 

Guest speaker Mike Setto, who triggered the boycott after removing Miller from his convenient store, told the nearly 200 Chaldean Store owners to, “not be afraid.”  The passionate plea brought tears to the eyes of audience members as Setto shared the importance of his faith and how it carried him through his personal trials and tribulations.  “We have had family members gunned down and murdered selling their products.  We have given Miller our blood, sweat, and tears, and this is how they repay us; by attacking the core of what a Chaldean is,” says Robert Kakos, Chaldean Justice League board member and town hall emcee.  

“Our faith has kept us safe since Christianity began.  We have been chased, beaten, kidnapped, ransomed, and our daughters and sisters have been raped by those who hate Christians yet, we remain committed to Christ.   To this day our people are being killed and martyred. Our priest and nuns are being abducted, tortured, and killed for believing in Jesus.,” Kakos passionately speaks. 

Loud cheers and standing ovations rocked the church hall.  The group handed out pledge sheets asking business owners to remove Miller from their stores.  They also handed out signs letting their customers know of Millers despicable support of hate, a hot-line phone number to call and report stores that are selling or not selling Miller, and have published an online list of those who refuse to sell Miller and those who continue to sell Miller. 

The Chaldean Justice League has taken the campaign against Miller very seriously.  “We have volunteers calling and informing retailers of the boycott against Miller and encouraging them to remove Miller from their Shelves.  We also have teams of drivers helping them remove Miller from their shelves.  I was happy to get in their cooler and toss the Miller poison off their shelf,” says Athir Salem. 

Athir Salem praises King of Woodward convenient store, owned by Saad Shamasha just a few blocks down from ABA Market.  “I walk into King of Woodward and he has sign’s all over the place showing his customers the hate that Miller supports.  As soon as you walk into the store and on every cooler door he has a message for Miller to respect his religion.”

Shamasha says his business has increased as customers come to learn about Miller’s support of hate.  The store owner has made hundreds of copies of the letter and pictures explaining what Miller supports.  “I pass them out to all my customers and tell them to help get the word out about Miller,” says Shamasha.  Customers in parking lot of the store say they will be taking the letter and pictures to their local churches and asking their pastors to get involved.  

Attempting to counter the campaign, Miller distributors have begun passing out the initial apology letter released by Millers public relations office attempting to appease store owners.  

The Chaldean Justice League has received reports of distributors harassing Chaldean store owners for discontinuing Miller.  “These stupid drivers call us terrorists and say they will have us deported if we don’t sell their products,” says Kevin Dinkha. “They are scared if we stay together.  They know we will then have the power to stop them from taking advantage of us.”

"Chaldeans ought to be proud of the business leaders who have taken a strong stand for thier faith.  They have earned our respect and admiration," says Jiddou.
