  • The Future of Shale Gas [View article]
    Excellent comprehensive analysis. If the envirowhackos don't stop shale gas, the availability of cleaner fossil fuels to last thru the transition to renewable sources will be one of the 21st century's great success stories.

  • Book Review: 'Conquer the Crash' by Prechter [View article]
    Elliot waves...BAH! Dow theory is far more useful and while it requires judgement, the odds are better.

  • Ener1's Reality Is Worse Than My Nightmares [View article]
    Why pay Mr. Peterson when ya can spend good money to buy a chevy volt---what were the latest monthly sales, 300 cars???----and get great mileage----what was the latest report on battery range, 30 miles??.Not alot of people turning over a new Leaf from the sounds of it, either.

    I am relentlessly positive about some investment areas--biotechnology, for example. I am relentlessly negative about others. Investing is about weighing facts, and if the facts are poor, optimism is folly.

  • The Economic Aftershocks of the Japanese Earthquake [View article]
    " Six months after that quake almost all of Kobe's factories had reopened and the city's infrastructure repaired. All the trains were running within nine months, and the port was 80% functional within a year. "

    Third world beggar-thy-neighbor basket cases, TAKE HEED!

  • In one of the broadest challenges to organized labor in decades, Republican senators in Wisconsin maneuvered around Democrats last night to pass legislation stripping public employee unions of collective bargaining rights. Several other states also will try to tamp down union power while cutting budgets.  [View news story]
    When did Seeking Alpha turn into National Palestinian (oops I mean national Public) Radio? We are not busting untions...we are busting PUBLIC EMPLOYEE UNIONS, which, to be honest, should be illegal, as that famous Tea Partier Franklin Delano Roosevelt said.

  • 5 Reasons Cisco Systems Will Stage a Comeback [View article]
    Correct Nadeem. if your stock is tanking, buybacks are throwing good money after bad. And the buybacks are just enough to cover dilution of management perks.

  • Why Oil Is Not Going to $200 [View article]
    Good article except for the obsession with mass transit and the titillating with pure electric vehicles. Except in Postage sized countries with gas taxed to $8.00 a gallon NOW, taking thie bus is a losing deal. Passenger trains are even worse...Paris Lyon and Tokyo Osaka are the only profitable routes.

    As for electric cars i send you to the excellent articles by your SA colleague, John Peterson. Burning coal or oil to produce electricity to run a vehicle is a joke. Even Nissan no longer advertises its Leaf---not exaclty flying off the lots, I hear---as a zero emissions vehicle.

  • Chart of the Day, U.S. Earnings Edition [View article]
    Looks like the dumbing down of American education in the post WWII period began to catch up with us by the late 1960s, onegeneration later, which makes sense. Why don't ya ask a High School senior to interpret that graph ("whats a median! Is that what I drove over while drunk last night?") and you just might see how fundamental our problems are.

  • Why I (Finally) Gave Up on Johnson & Johnson [View article]
    Excellent article and many intelligent comments. I have been watching JNJ for years. As many do, I feel this company is irresistable to a (eventual) management/quality control team that will clean up its recall and R&D mess, and spike up performance. For now if they can't keep rat doo doo out of their products, I don't care about their dividend.

    Heaven forbid a company like ISRG should be acquired and destroyed by these management morons.

  • "We are going into a recession, damn it!" says John Taylor of currency hedge fund FX Concepts, due to rate hikes coming as easy monetary policy ends. He foresees a 4%, 3%, 2%, 1% rate of annualized GDP growth by quarter. U.S. stocks will continue rising for another few months, at which point the "coming recession" will take over, he says (video).  [View news story]
    What an idiot. We will be raising rates because the economy is getting stonger and stronger in SPITE of, not BECAUSE of, the Anointed One's policies. In fact the resumption of growth from last August coincides EXACTLY with the tea party surge and the taking of the house by conservatives (not RINOs). If we can bust the Public Employee Unions, say hello to Dow 20k!

  • Is the Stalled Decline in Jobless Claims Really Over This Time? [View article]
    Time to consign the double dippers to the trashbin of history. Time for the republicans to take credit for a stimulus package of less regulation, lower taxes, and balanced state budgets. Time to make sure the Anointed One's Jimmy Carter fantasies of $200 a barrel oil are torpedoed buy expanded drilling, natural gas exploration, and conservation.

  • The Time Has Come for Natural Gas Transportation [View article]
    Why don't we do it? Ask your envirowhacko buddies, who are spinning fantasies about threats from 'fracking' faster than the IEA spins myths about peak oil or IPCC spins data about global warmingism.
