“[Murphy uses a three-year chart of the XLV alongside the ratio of the XLV to the S&P 500 Index, providing a measure of health care's relative strength. When it rises, the implication is bearish for stocks.] Their relative strength ratio rises when the market is weak and falls when the market is strong, ... The fact that it's been rising for most of 2005 is a sign that money is moving into more defensive sectors in an aging bull market--another reason why health care is an attractive choice right now.”
“What can be said in New Year rhymes,
That's not been said a thousand times?
The new years come, the old years go,
We know we dream, we dream we know.
We rise up laughing with the light,
We lie down weeping with the night.
We hug the world until it stings,
We curse it then and sigh for wings.
We live, we love, we woo, we wed,
We wreathe our prides, we sheet our dead.
We laugh, we weep, we hope, we fear,
And that's the burden of a year.”
“Our turnover ratio last year was at the bottom of the league. If you look at that statistic, everyone's that drafting in the first five or six picks all were in the bottom of the league in that ratio. It's a won-loss deal. If you don't correct it, you'll lose again.”
“We have lost one shuttle for every 57 flights and that is not a good ratio. I do believe we need to continue space flights, but maybe we can follow the example of the Russians and use unmanned vehicles to transport hardware into space.”
