  • The Future Of Seeking Alpha, From One Contributor's Perspective [View article]
    These days there are intelligent webbots that can put entire articles together, as well as (usually) intentionally damaging article comments. You used to be able to discern these bots because of constant similarity of structure, word counts always within certain limits, etc. They have gotten better since and it can be a challenge responding to comments that you suspect are generated deep in the bowels of some server somewhere.

  • '60 Minutes' Tackles Rare Earths [View article]
    Folks: bone up. PEAK OIL is dead.

    The latest fantasies: peak WATER (Which falls from the sky) and
    peak "rare earths," which aren't even rare.

    Fool you once, shame on me. Fool you twice, shame on you.

  • Flash crash in the dollar [View news story]
    Plain, simple, non regulatory solution to flash crashes: all orders are limit orders, or stop limit orders.

    This prevents the cascade of market orders that result when simple stop orders are triggered. It also forces investors to think about the minimum price they are willing to accept.

  • 'The U.S. Is Broke' [View article]
    Even this article underestimates just how good things are. Debt is a balance sheet item: completely ignored are government assets on the other side of the balance sheet, including tangibles such as land and intangibles such as military security, something no other country can so emphatically claim.

    The US should use this historic low rate scenario to roll the debt over to 100 year bonds. I am sure those "geniuses" in Beijing---you know, the ones who build all those metropolises that have no people in them?--- would be big buyers. Then whenever they get frisky militarily, we just "restructure" the debt. Whenever the chinese steal our products because of no patent law, we just deduct the calculated cost from the principal and award the bonds to the injured parties. The time of carrying the baggage of socialist ratholes from Paris to Peking is OVER.

  • AT&T: Some Good News [View article]
    I use write puts/write calls to increase and decrease my T holdings over time. Option income plus dividends from time to time makes me a happy fella.

    Slight correction: Value Line will continue to cover T, but it will not be FREE coverage that all users can see of the Dow 30 stocks.

    Add an "E" for excellent and they become fEastgraphs....FEAST your eyes on all the info. I've been torn between T and VZ for many quarters, and this article was very helpful.

    Still torn though! :)

  • John Hussman: What Does That Difference Mean? [View article]
    "We cannot rule out the possibility of market advances counter to the hostile market return/risk profile we presently identify,...."

    You BETTER not rule them out...any more than you can rule out the last couple thousand Dow Industrial points........

    Let me know when you finally become bullish...then we'll KNOW it is time to sell.

  • Yet Another Account Pointing To A Cycle End [View article]
    Thanks for the update: but, could most of the decline in factory orders be related to declines in the oil sector? Todays the dollar is soaring: not consistent with a slowing economy that soon will see rate hikes fade "further" on the horizon.
