  • Spare Capacity Theory and the Libyan Disruption [View article]
    Woo woo wikileaks! It makes far more sense to conclude that when Saudi Arabia sees advantages in UNDERSTATING their reserves (higher prices, profits, respect from western countries) they will do so. When advantages lie in OVERstating (discipline from other producers, respect in the region, favorable climate in washington for defense procurements) they will do so.

  • U.S. Fundamentals Continue to Improve [View article]
    I love it CBP! Your data is like rubbin the hair on a hound the wrong way, and it gets the double dippies all antsy! They just can't accept that the economy is recovering IN SPITE OF, not BECAUSE OF, their Anointed One, who is swiftly turning into the Jimmy Carter of the 21st century.

  • Chevron's Strong Fundamentals vs. Its Peers Make It a Buy [View article]
    Wow. What a few more graphs, and a few less charts, would do! Paired analysis (Coke/Pepsi, Exxon/Chevron,ATT/Veri... Home Depot/Lowes, etc) is a great way to show newbies the ins and outs of investing.

  • A Sobering Perspective on China's High Speed Rail [View article]
    Trains work only in postage stamp sized countries where people live like gerbils in dense population centers and pay $8.00 equivalent per gallon of gasoline. Elsewhere they are a waste of money.

  • Sirius Willing to Compete in New Arenas [View article]
    By the way don't forget many columns and writers have legions of us lurkers. If you are lurking, you are listening; if you are listening, you are learning; and if you are learning, you become much better investor. Some of you know I occasionally break out with Pandora comments...but ya'all know em by now! Back to being a lurkin' gherkin!

  • Big Pharma Now Realizes It Got 'Snookered' Over Obamacare Exclusivity Deal [View article]
    Just as RINOs are not true conservatives, Pharma bigwigs are not true capitalists. Like most appeasers who shell out payola for a seat at the table, they found out they are on the menu. The device manufacturers are finding the same thing.

    The challenge for true republicans is how to punish the Phamahacks without punishing their long suffering shareholders.
