The Wall Street Journal placed a large, misleading graph on page 1 last Thursday (Oct 16). In ��ongress Strikes a Debt Deal,��the graph highlighted the 20-year, fourfold increase in U.S. government debt and the historically large growth over the past four years. While the numbers are correct, the WSJ�� presentation is not. Here�� what�� wrong and how the interpretation changes when the data are viewed appropriately.
First: Incomplete time period
While the 20-year span sounds long and meaningful, starting at 1993 leaves out the previous 30 years of significant changes in the U.S. Moreover, when examining the recent Great Recession and its repercussions, we must go back to the similarly problematic late-70s, early 80s to find relevant comparisons.
So, the first change is to reset the beginning date. I have chosen 1966 because 1965 was a key watershed year for a number of economic, financial and social changes. Major U.S. companies post-war superiority peaked, inflation and bond yields began their long ascents (the UST 10-year bond was 4-1/4%, a level not seen again until 2002), the Dow Jones Industrial Average hit ~1,000 (an all-time high not to be surpassed for 17 years), the sizeable Vietnam War expansion began and Medicare was born. Augmenting these items was growing social unrest, heightened by JFK�� assassination (1963) and the Civil Rights Act�� passage (1964).

What�� the Catch with Dephasium Corp? According to various disclosures, transactions of $2k, $2.5k, $3k, $4k, $7.5k, $12.5k and $15k have or will occur to mention Dephasium Corp in various investment newsletters. Dephasium Corp has been getting plenty of off and on attention for a couple of months now, but what�� been pretty strange is the company issuing a press release to announce that an unidentified third party, without the DPHS�� approval, has listed its shares on the Boerse Berlin Stock Exchange. The press release warned that this could be the first salvo in a ��ignificant naked shorting attack directed at the Company��given that the Berlin exchange is one of few stock exchanges in the world that allows listing and trading of a company's stock without the consent or authorization of the company being listed in order to facilitate short-selling. A quick look at Dephasium Corp�� financials reveals no revenues; net losses of $10k (most recent reported quarter), $17k and $11k plus net income of $388k; and $51k to cover $9k in current liabilities at the end of March. In other words, Dephasium Corp isn�� making money but someone else is trying to make some from it.IceWEB, Inc. (OTCBB: IWEB) Seems to Be Making Progress

Getty Images/Cultura As more than a few finance industry professionals will happily brag, 2013 was a banner year for initial public offerings with 156 new stocks coming to market -- the most since 2007 -- collectively reaping the issuers aggregate proceeds of more than $38 billion. We went over the most recognizable members of this year's rookie class in "The 5 Most Unfortgettable IPOs of 2013." But in a big pool of 156 companies, there are bound to be at least a few struggling fish. Here, then, is a selection of five from the class of 2013 that are getting seriously lapped by their peers. 1. Prosensa (RNA) This Dutch clinical-stage biopharmaceutical firm had a strong debut when it listed on the Nasdaq in late June. The stock's offer price of $13 zoomed to close at over $19 on the first day of trading. But bad news was waiting around the corner; less than three months later, the shares tanked by more than 70 percent after the company announced that the muscular dystrophy treatment (drisapersen) it was developing in partnership with GlaxoSmithKline (GLAXF), did not hit its primary endpoint in late-stage trials. That one-day free fall saw the stock swoon from $24 per share to barely over $7. Since then, shares have slipped even further, and can currently be had for less than $5. 2. Violin Memory (VMEM) As a provider of high-speed data storage solutions, this company should be well in tune with current IT needs. But it fell flat from the beginning -- on its first day of trading the stock closed slightly over $7 a share, after pricing at $9. Worse was to come when the firm reported its first quarterly results as a publicly traded entity. While revenue advanced nearly 40 percent on a year-over-year basis, that couldn't cover the gaping hole of a bottom line loss totaling $34 million (a figure, by the way, significantly higher than the top line number of $28 million). The already-sinking shares continued to dive, bottoming at just over $2.50 per share. The re
