  • Star Scientific's Shares Set for a Major Pullback [View article]
    Yeah, about that... you're wrong. Even CIGX admitted in their own 10-K that you are wrong:

    However, our business and operations may consume resources faster than we anticipate, and depending upon market conditions and the price of our common stock, we may decide to seek additional funds before that time. Additional financing may not be available on favorable terms, if at all. If adequate funds are not available on acceptable terms, we may be unable to fund the expansion of our sales and marketing and research and development efforts or take advantage of other opportunities, which could seriously harm our business and operating results. If we issue additional equity securities, existing stockholders will experience dilution.

    "but that won't be hard..." uh huh.

  • Did Shia Labeouf Help John Thomas Financial Pump InterOil? [View article]
    you must feel special when they are so threatened by you they feel compelled to make fake Seeking Alpha accounts just to comment on things you've written to make it appear as though you have MANY critics instead of just one stupid InterOil idiot with too much time on his hands.

  • Congress to Retroactively Increase FDIC's Insurance Limit: Terrible Idea [View article]
    Ummmmm did anyone try checking the dictionary for the actual meaning of the word "insurance"? Obviously Congress didn't.

    I'd like to drop my car insurance to the bare minimums, get in a huge car accident and THEN say "Oops, I need to increase my coverage but, uh, retroactively since I got in that huge accident that is going to cost me a bunch of money." and see how that turns out.

  • How High Will Mortgage Rates Go When Fed Winds Down Programs? [View article]

    Great article as always! I will be in my crappy 1 room apartment that I pay way too much for when this sh*t DOES hit the fan...

    Curious though... does the Fed realize that it is shooting itself in the foot? If it pulls MBS purchases too early while trying to keep the bond market afloat, mortgage rates will blow up. If it pulls both, it will have little mechanisms available to even control the situation. So what does it do? Do they KNOW what a mess they are in? That's what scares me the most. Because, well, it's the Fed and... uh... they don't have the best track record on these things.

  • Goldman Sachs One-Upped Wells Fargo in Accounting Shenanigans [View article]
    We all know the manipulation is happening so why not get a piece before the truth comes out in the wash? They can rewrite all the accounting rules they want - the problem being at some point the game is over, the question is whether or not those who understood what has been going on all along played along or not.

    A load of bull if I ever saw one.

  • Beige Book Reflections [View article]
    I like the perspective - a slowing contraction actually IS a good sign. It isn't time to dust off the credit cards or anything but it's encouraging.

    I don't believe it will last (or that the Fed is being entirely realistic) but it's encouraging none the less.

  • Book Review: 'Financial Reckoning Day' by William Bonner, with Addison Wiggin [View article]
    This is a fascinating article, thank you.

    I'd be curious to look at a non-US demographic though... I think we all know the effect our aging population has had on us and we know where SS is headed...

  • Paul Krugman pines for the days when investment bankers were boring.  [View news story]
    I pine for the days when Paul Krugman wasn't the be-all-end-all of economic authorities and Nouriel Roubini wasn't stalking girls on Facebook.
