This analytic approach is similar to one of my favorite indicators, the Hot Waitress Index:

Briefly, during boom times, hot chicks can get better paying jobs than waitressing: modeling or stripping or what have you. When things go bad, they have to turn to waitressing, or, perhaps, working at the mall.

I see your news as a contrary indicator. When I start seeing ugly girls at my restaurants and in the malls, I'll know it's time to start investing.
