Case Shiller Housing Composite Flips Negative

Tuesday, March 27, 2007 | 11:30 AM

For first time in over a decade, the Case Shiller Housing Composite flipped negative;  I'm sure this is utterly meaningless, and is nothing to worry about whatsoever:

"January data released today by Standard & Poor’s for its S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Indices, the leading measure of U.S. home prices in the United States, shows home price composites plummeting into negative terrain.

“The annual declines in the composites are a good indicator of the dire state of the U.S. residential real estate market,” says Robert J. Shiller, Chief Economist at MacroMarkets LLC. “ The 10-City and 20-city Composites are both showing negative annual returns, a striking difference from the 15.1% and 14.7% returns they reported this time last year. The dismal growth in the 10-City composite is now at rates not seen since January 1994.”

Unless the actual data matters to you, and you are uninterested in becoming a serial bottom caller in Housing.

But other than that, nothing to worry about here . . .

Serial bottom-caller for the housing market sounds like a good career path, with guaranteed employment for at least the next 10 years.
