  • Read This Before Shorting Anything! [View article]
    "if I had unlimited capital and could naked short sell, I could just keep selling until I clear out all the bids and depress the security to unjustifiable levels"

    Well then you have to cover your naked short and deliver the securities at some point. And at that point, you will be in a one man short squeeze.

    Naked short selling would be beneficial to true price discovery. With stock having to be borrowed it allows people to try to engineer short squeezes by buying up or calling back lent stock. It would be much harder to short squeeze by driving up the price alone without shrinking the float.

  • Does Tesla Motors have a China problem? [View news story]
    Elon Musk is the kind of guy who could sell the Brooklyn Bridge every day of the the very same guy and the guy would be thankful!

    Somewhere the hologram of Steve Jobs appears to the Apple Board and says "The Force of reality distortion is strong in him"

    Elon, Darth Jobs is your father....

  • Reuters: SandRidge to cut rig count by 75% [View news story]
    Sold all my SD I bought on the way down @$2 when it hit $2.3. Its Vegas with worse odds to be in this stock. Thank god for the bounce, when it went to $1.15, I was really sweating. Followed Cooperman into this @5, got out @7 then went back in at $2 and nearly lost 50% of my investment. Phew!

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Europe Heads Lower On Greek Tensions [View article]
    "Germany's Angela Merkel has given Russian President Vladimir Putin until February 11 to agree to a road map to end the fighting in eastern Ukraine."

    Should read "... begging Vladimir Putin until...."

    I don't recalll Merkel and Hollande rushing to Belarus or Moscow when they thought the Kiev regime was winning.

    If they run to Putin now with peace plans, that means Poroshenko's militias are running for the hills....

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Europe Heads Lower On Greek Tensions [View article]
    I can't believe anybody still believes the drama being enacted by Merkel and Tsipras. There will be no Greek "austerity" and there will be German taxpayer money being funneled into Greece.

    Its like the romantic comedies the wife watches - the ending is known (woman meets man, woman hates and then loves man, they kiss kiss at the end), but she watches them anyway.

    Now Greece and Germany are enacting the "I hate you" stage of the movie. Soon it will be kiss kiss and the money will left on the bedside table.

    Is the average beef, chicken, bacon, sausage and fish eating American really needing more protein? It's as believable as Ghanians needing to slim down on Herbalife.

  • Stocks give up gains as ECB rejects Greek paper as acceptable collateral [View news story]
    Sound and fury for fooling the German voter. At this moment, trucks are at the loading dock of the ECB loading the pallets of cash for Greeks to sit around drinking coffee for all their life.

  • Checkmate For Greece? [View article]
    I have a friend from Greece who is a full tenured university professor at a large 100,000 student US university. His wife and kids spend the majority of the year in Greece. I asked him how he affords the air fares and a second home in Greece. He replied "She & the kids make more money sitting at home in Greece than I do working here in the US." His wife is getting her fathers pension, forgot to tell the Greek government she is married etc etc

    Wiping out Greek debt just means they will restart issuing bonds that have the implicit and post Draghi "whatever it takes" explicit guarantee of European taxpayers in other countries. No austerity has been done in Greece at all. The government has just grabbed even more from the few who work. Greece is just the example of a whole two generations of Europeans who think they don't have to work and expect government checks as their birthright.

    Of course Obama will support such a system since he wants the US to wind up just like Greece with the majority of the population on welfare and terrified that the welfare checks might be taken away and voting for whomever promises to continue and expand the welfare.
