  • Termites Beneath USD Foundation Masked By Strength Against Euro/Yen [View article]
    Peruvians get "new Sols" more often than my shoes. I don't know how significant fluctuations in minor currencies are as forward indicators. There are some glaring omissions: Venezuela? Israeli Shekel? Bitcoin? The article is on much firmer ground with the Euro analysis vs the USA. Love your articles Chris because they give useful trading information. (even though I am not much of a trader!)

  • Lanny's February Dividend Income Summary [View article]
    Money money money MO-NEY! A bit of snooping could figure it out..but could you tell us the amount invested in each stock and overall? Would be nice to see your yield on cost: also rising as your dividends grow.

  • FCC vote: And now the congressional hearings [View news story]
    322 Pages that can be dealt with in a sentence. The internet is a superhighway, and like any OTHER superhighway, a lane hog and a bandwidth hog should pay MORE. If you want more speed, you should pay MORE. Plain and simple.

    What about POST OFFICE NEUTRALITY: the same rate for all mail, regardless of weight, bulk, or delivery time. Gimme a break. The spineless republicans are so intimidated by the Presidency it is no wonder they nominate cluesless RINOs like Bushes, McCains and Romneys.

    Like the ICC did decades ago, the FCC should just dissolve itself. In the 1960s before dereg of airlines it cost over 1000 to fly across the country. I booked a flight last week for less than $200.

  • Lumber Liquidators' Day Of Reckoning [View article]
    What a breath of fresh air it is to read a guy who POINTED OUT that a bubble existed BEFORE it burst, and then stuck with the story all the way thru.

    The company should change its name to wealth liquidators. :)

  • Lessons From A Dozen Years Of Short Selling [View article]
    Bearish call spreads can overcome a lot of the SHORT comings of selling short. But thanks for the sure lays it all on the line from a battle scarred grisly short seller.

  • Energy Stocks Look 'False Trend' Attractive As Bulls Ignore Janet Yellen [View article]
    Rising rates are bullish because they show the economy is strong. If rates were rising because of inflation fears, it would be bearish.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Net Neutrality To Sweep The Nation? [View article]
    Lets hope the Republicans in congress get a backbone and just refuse to fund the FCC in its entirety: it would no more be missed than the Interstate Commerce Commission, in its day.

  • Accumulate AT&T Shares While No One Is Paying Attention [View article]
    I use Value Line multiples of cash flow as a guide for investment decisions; 6.5x has been a useful guideline topside; the current multiple is much less than that.

  • The Dividend Aristocrats And Maximum Drawdowns [View article]
    Yummy! As a soon-to-be-retired livin' on the road cyclist, I devour these articles like mama's cheesecake. I supplement returns with put and call writing, easing in and out of these ETFs as the market rolls.

  • Beware Of Convertible Bond Funds [View article]
    John: I believe finance theory shows that a convertible bond is equivalent to a regular bond PLUS a call option on the stock, the details escape me at the moment. In that case you may be able to get the same bang for the buck just by writing calls on your portfolio in other contexts. I do this to generate income, as a semi-retiree: write puts..if the stock is put to me, write calls to sell it; and various adjustment scenarios. Wondering if you have tried something similar.

  • What Are The Greeks Demanding After All? [View article]
    The Europeans are going to blame Nazi-ism (by the way they are National SOCIALISTS, and like all socialists they use the barrel of a gun to be generous with your money) the way American blacks blame slavery: it is their feel good hobby horse that dismisses any shortcomings they may have. Europe desperately hopes that, like in the 1920s, our FED will keep interest rates low for the sake of the continental basket cases. Sorry dude...been there done that.

    P.S. I'm confused. Which world war did the Germans start?
