Maria Bartiromo has a stimulus plan of her own. But it's a plan to stimulate the selling of assets instead of consumer spending. If you've got stocks or homes you want to sell, you should probably sell before Barack Obama gets elected, she seems to say to Avenue.
Today Page Six reports that the Money Honey warned about higher taxes if the Democratic nominee gets elected. "He's going to take the capital gains tax at 15 percent right now all the way up to 25 to 28 percent," she says. "Sell anything, like a home or stocks, and make a profit . . . [almost] 30 percent of the profit will go to the government instead of 15."
