  • 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.

    Why look at just one day? look at a multiweek chart of copper and oil and the answer might be quite different.

  • 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.

  • Pandora and the Folly of Targeting Customers Who Refuse to Pay [View article]
    Nothing is more personal than music and I am taking all of your wonderful tightwad/whatever comments with a huge chuckle and grain of salt as EVERY internet user should. This being an investor website, its ok to BE wrong but don't STAY wrong: so if you guys have put me onto an opportunity with SIRI than I will be very grateful for it. But for the moment SIRI is for NPR wannabees.

    By the way nothing shows how pathetic SIRI listeners are to ask "Who is Joni Mitchell. " :)

  • Why Plug-In Vehicles Are a Luxury No Nation and No Investor Can Afford [View article]
    I bike in the Alps often and in other mountain ranges throughout the world as well. What a GREAT idea regenerative braking would be. I could use the descent of Col de L'Iseran to help push me back up the Petit St Bernard.

    In any case, thanks for another great article. I am sure you are happy with XIDEs recent performance. Your short Tesla/long Xide was spot on.
