18:10 PM EST: FDR promised to lower government costs, he didn’t manage it.
18:14 PM EST: Gundlach recommends taking all of your money out of bank accounts.
18:15 PM EST: He’s talking about the Cyprus bailout, he’s saying that it could happen here if the government keeps going the way it is.
18:16 PM EST: Gundlach puts Cyprus as a metaphorical Lucitania in a war against depositors.
18:17 PM EST: Investing on inflation from central bank policy is not timely says Gundlach.
18:17 PM EST: QE is Bernanke’s way of financing the budget deficit for the Government.
18:18 PM EST: That means, says Gundlach, QE is here to stay, they’re just a means of financing the deficit.
18:19 PM EST: Unthinkable outcome:$26 trillion in debt by 2017.
18:21 PM EST: QE means insurance premiums will fall. Insurance companies should be avoided.
18:23 PM EST: Government talks about downsides of QE so they can say they looked at it. They’re not going to do anything. QE is here to stay.
18:24 PM EST: Treasury Bills aren’t over owned says Gundlach.
18:25 PM EST: Gundlach is interested in what’s happening with ETFs. The Great Rotation is stupid says Gundlach.
18:26 PM EST: QE makes investors comfortable at a higher level of risk.
18:27 PM EST: “If you disagree that QE will continue, short French bonds because we all know that France is a basket case.”
18:29 PM EST: Gundlach likes shorting Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG).
The Bottom Line From Gundlach is that the Great Rotation doesn’t exist, QE will never end, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Inc. (NYSE:CMG) is a short and T-Bills are a buy. Kind of a weird mix.
