    This is the exact opposite of Hedgeye’s current thesis (not to mention counter to Raoul’s “buy bonds” call) and is predicated on accelerating ROC growth and rising yields. If you believe the 3.2% GDP print is not only accurate but can be exceeded next quarter, this is your trade. I will gladly take the other side both long and short.

    there are always issues with the video player. the appearance of the "time left" clock in huge size any time you mouse over the interview is a feature that might be considered for improvement.
