We've seen the collapse of some fine emerging markets in the past: Vietnam, Nicaragua, Serbia, Irak, Afghanistan...For some reason the US market still went up each time one of those emerging markets tanked. So I don't think there is a correlation that would keep S&P down as China tanks. Actually I think there is the opposite correlation: when foreign countries are in trouble, the US prospers, and vice versa.


Inst. Own %...It depends on how you look at it. Low %? That proves this stock is a loser...Or wait a minute, maybe it means the stock will soar once those "institutions" wake up. High %? Sure this stock is a winner because institutions want to own it. Or maybe it's a loser because at some moment institutions will start selling it. So i guess Google Finance numbers prove that it's a great time to buy or sell IRE :)
