  • Safeway, Illumina: Abnormal Options Activity Catching My Attention [View article]
    hey Brian, great article. I believe all of the grocery stores you mentioned have similar balance sheets and debt loads, but Costco has majority of its debt as short term obligations and that worries me. I'm long Walmart, best stock you can own throughout recession

  • How To Lose Your Debt Without Losing Your Health [View article]
    Another problem that weighs on housing is the fact that continuous permits are granted to keep the builders alive.

    As far as de-leveraging is concerned, I think banks already took the hit for most of the credit card losses. What needs to be changed is the credit scoring system of Experian, Equifax and TU. At the peak of recession, banks like Chase were still lobbying congress to make recovery from bankruptcy even harder than it already is.

    Rookie IRA Investor,

    Chevron claims that that the Three Big Detroit auto makers used their additive to pass the EPA's regulations on emissions. With the introduction of Techron, Chevron gasolines became designated as meeting Top Tier standards for fuel cleanliness. Chevron gasolines with Techron were some of the first gasolines to be named as a “Top Tier Detergent Gasoline”. “Top Tier Detergent Gasoline(s)” agreed to lead to better performance in engines by BMW, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, Volkswagen, and Audi.

    In addition, Hyundai, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz have issued factory service bulletins advising the use of concentrated Chevron Techron in repair procedures for vehicles with certain mechanical problems.

    You're welcome Veritas. My actual equity analysis report is 35 pages long, so there's a lot of editing I had to do to make this acceptable by SeekingAlpha. Having said that, there is a lot I didn't cover here. In my humble opinion, main reasons why I believe Chevron should be in triple digits (besides the quantitative models used).
    1. Chevron always maintained if not increased its dividends throughout recessions.
    2. Chevron's jet fuel is what is used by most airlines today, there's no other jet fuel that even comes close to its kind.
    3. Techron (favored by all american automakers) and vast LNG projects
    4. Scroll up to the "key players" chart, and compare the profit margins of Chevron to others, Chevron's management is very aggressive in keeping tight control on costs and yielding more crude from existing reserves (not new reserves).

    I normally day trade ETF or index options as I like to take more risk. It did occur a few times where I owned a large blue chip stock such as Chevron or Boeing and I did write an article on them, but had to disclose to the readers.
