  • Positioning for a Food Riots Economy [View article]
    Isn;t it funny how socialist polcies always lead to "bad weather,' 'higher oil prices,' and other natural disasters. Back when China was commie they had droughts and famines that lasted for years. And we know that federalizing programs makes things cheaper! Can't wait for those $500 pentagon toilet seats to come to our hospitals.

  • Just How Big Is the Kindle Revolution? [View article]
    I tried "Kindling" and it is about as charming as a scorpion. Go down your local library, grab a Classic like the Iliad or Odyssey, curl up in an overstuffed chair with a nice pot of tea to keep ya warm on these chilly nights, and read for FREE.

  • Despite the Street's strongly bullish slant, earnings are growing significantly faster than valuations, resulting in shrinking P/E ratios even as stocks rise. How this affects markets in 2011 remains to be seen: Will slumping P/Es stymie the rally, or does this indicate there's still plenty of upside?  [View news story]
    Dude! PE ratios have been shrinking since 2000! The last time that happened we had a Pompous president hung up on himself, on government regulation, on higher taxes, a spineless foreign policy, and an energy crisis. Jimmy Carter, meet Barack Obama. When we find our next Reagan, Gingrich, and Volcker, you'll see PEs expand.

  • 5 Areas We’ll Feel Inflation; 5 ETFs to Fight Back [View article]
    Much easier:

    (1) Eat less and mopre slowly. Americans could lose a billion pounds and we'd all be better off for it.

    (2) Walk some more, drive and car pool a bit more, throw on an extra HOODED SWEATSHIRT (much better than a sweater).

    (3) 1 & 2 will help; don't forget preventive care, and support the repeal of Obamacare. Since when did a GOVERNMENT program cut costs? Ya want $500 pentagon toilet seats in our hospitals?

    (4) 2nd hand clothing at Goodwill and Salvation Army is good for the wallet and just fine for your overfed ego.

    (5) Support your local branch bank or credit union and tell B of A to shove their fees where the sun don't shine.

    Use the money you save to invest in quality suggestions which the author has made and get a DOUBLE WHAMMY!

    Yeah and the ordinary citizen is faced with DECREASING costs for computers, software, games, internet access, rent, housing, and countless other items. I pay $0.57 a pound for chicken at our local Price-rite. Oil use per capita has been declining for decades; oil use per $ of real GDP has been falling even faster.

  • Emerging International Shale Gas: Poland and China Lead [View article]
    What is nice is that I see no major opposition to natural gas development. Envirowhackos seem singularly unable to stop the development of clean-burning natural gas.

  • Intel Shows How to Spin Liquidity Into a Solid Bubble [View article]
    Oh for Pete's sake if ya can't understand that numerous crosscurrents exist in a company on the cutting edge of technology in the 21st century, then I suggest you only invest in buggy whip manufacturers or sign on with the long vanished SA double dippers. INTC has some promising technology and has some challenges from Tablets. If that taxes your patience Obama sure could use the revenue.

  • Intel's Future in Three Words: Datacenter, Tablet and Netbook [View article]
    I love my netbook, and I hate tablets. I want a keyboard which is at a different angle than my screen. My netbook screen is small but i can control the text size anyway, so its no big deal. I think INTC needs to address some usage issues gong forward, but is priced conservatively.

  • No longer just a resource play, Africa is home to a potentially huge consumer class. McKinsey and Co. pegs the number of consumers able to afford more than basic necessities as higher than that of India (spread out over a slightly larger area), but a long road remains before Africa can be deemed the next Asia.  [View news story]
    Wow....if everyone in Africa starts brushing their tooth...think of the market!

  • The Three Most Profitable Healthcare Trends of 2011 [View article]
    Hopefully the Supreme Court will throw out this monstrosity; before the appeasers who hoped that a small "FEE" will enable them to keep a few crumbs from their innovations are devoured by those they sought to please. Now if the republicans can just eliminate the FDA entirely, we might once again see medical innovation in this country.

  • The Causes of Unemployment [View article]
    Come on the folks the cause of unemployment is people who are out of work!

    Wages sticky downwards? HA! What a laugh! Ask the air traffic controllers. Ask the autoworkers who had givebacks and benefit cuts.

    The wages that need to be cut are Federal and State workers, who's wage/benefit growth has been faster than inflation for decades.
