Jeff Rosen said he supports the "swerve" theory. "I’m leaning toward it being a one-month aberration," he said.

"There's a statistical disconnect between some of these job market gauges…The recent drop in the initial claims level implies payroll growth in the neighborhood of 300,000. Contrary to the Department of Labor, however, we believe the recent drop in claims data reflects seasonal biases from the auto industry," he said, referring to the annual seasonal shutdowns at auto plants, which can distort the new claims data.

Jun 25KitcoJeffrey Rosen commented on the GDP drop saying, "It was pretty ugly. Minus 2.9% - you can't just blame that on the weather.

Apr 17Kitco NewsPatrick J. O'Hare spoke about the uncertainty in the marketplace leading up to the April FOMC, "We would argue the Fed's communication is getting jumbled. The Fed is sounding confused about what is the next best step. The Fed is trying to walk a delicate dance of clear communication. The Fed has tried and moved on from first "calendar based" guidance and then "quantitative based" guidance, which haven't worked." Read the full article now.

Apr 14Investors.comJeffrey Rosen gave his opinion on the impact of winter on retail sales, "Internet sales — a category that the weather is not likely to influence — rose 1.7% on the month in March. I've always been in the camp that says winter was overblown. Wage growth accounts for most of the sales gains. The length of the workweek and hours worked rose, the latter to a multiyear high. It means that businesses will need to step up hiring and boost hours and wages more than they have in the past few years."

Apr 4Kitco NewsPatrick J. O'Hare gave insight on upcoming corporate earnings reports saying, "Although the market may have retreated somewhat on concerns with earnings, it might be part of a pattern that's occurred lately of the market retreating as it expects poorer earnings, companies suggesting earnings may not be so strong, then when earnings do come up, they're treated as better than expected, giving the indexes a boost. We've seen this happen over and over." Read the full article now.

Mar 11Yahoo FinanceJeffrey Rosen finds the weather-based explanations for underperforming economy unconvincing, "There's no way this is all weather. We've had other bouts of bad weather over the last 15 years, so you can't say this is a generational event. And we've seen weakness in areas you wouldn't expect weather to weaken."

Mar 10Trader PlanetDennis Hobein featured Castlight Health (CSLT) calling it,"...an exciting deal and one that should generate strong interest. It's a company with a unique product that appears to effectively mitigate one of corporate America's major hurdles -- rising healthcare costs. The market opportunity is large and with its head start on the field, it should have little trouble tapping into this estimated $5 billion addressable market." Read the full article now.

Mar 5Kitco NewsJeffrey Rosen provided insight on the jobs report "December and January job weakness may be related to companies holding off on hiring because of the impact of new tax laws that went into effect in 2014, and how companies would need to handle the Affordable Coverage Act. Rosen added that since 2011, the trend for U.S. economic growth has been sluggish in the first half of the year, but stronger in the second half." Read the full article now.

Feb 2Investors.comJeffrey Rosen discussed ISM data saying, "The weather idea seems legitimate, but surveys such as ISM's tend to run more optimistic than actual hard data. January's tepid growth reading may be a fair portrayal of industry's true state, while late 2013 readings may have been too high. ISM gauges respondents' sense of whether certain conditions are better or worse — but not how much better."
