  • If We Get Even The Simplest Things Wrong [View article]
    The sky is falling the sky is falling! Wolf Wolf!

    No-growthers died out in the 1970s. The only thing you are recycling is centuries old discredited ideas.

  • Big Data Technology, Streaming Music, And Pandora's Competitive 'Moat' [View article]
    Love Pandora. Hours and hours of music tailored to my preferences, with light advertising thrown in that if anything is a pleasant distraction.

  • Manufacturing Still Healthy, But Problems Still Remain [View article]
    And don't forget the unprecedented SLAP DOWN of the Anointed One in the recent supreme court decisions.

  • Are You Ready To Capitalize On Emerging World Growth And U.S. Oil Independence? [View article]
    PDR....I agree that the independence thesis has to be borne out with more data. At the margin, however, all this gas and oil products punctures the idea that we are "running out of oil," which has been a market and government shibboleth for decades. With that gone, there is room for plenty of bullishness, and not just in the oil sector.

  • Whole Foods Market Is A BMW, Stop Comparing It To A Kia [View article]
    I don't shop at either one, but many people use Wegmans to assemble wholesome, nutritious meals that they go home and heat in their convection ovens. When I was their guest I had some of them; they were good, but not my style of eating.

  • The Best Passive Retirement Strategy In The World [View article]
    I devour retirement articles! Thanks for another good one.

    Just on caveat on your second Bullet:

    "The equity markets provide the return and inflation protection retirees need."

    This assumes that companies can raise prices faster than the increase in unit labor costs. If this does not happen---as in the 1970s, with FIFO and other accounting irregularities--- stocks will not act as an inflation hedge.

  • Is The Next Recession Already Here? [View article]
    Typical liberal convoluted thinking. Importing oil is bad...EXPORTING oil is bad.

  • Is The Next Recession Already Here? [View article]
    Next recession already here? There are some crazies who think the previous one never ended. The biggest howl in trying to discredit the "bitter winter" data was someone who said it was a mild winter in Hawaii, California, Texas, and Florida.

    No doubt it was an economist soon to be a climatologist.

  • Why This Bear On IBM Is Moving Toward A Bullish Posture [View article]
    I feel IBM is fairly valued at the moment because their slowing EPS growth in recent quarters has led to a decline in trailing PE, pulling the price lower even though raw EPS is higher. While I might get "back in" too late, I prefer to see some positive sales/earnings momentum before i jump.

  • Supreme Court rules against Aereo [View news story]
    Good call Jill. I haven't watched network TV for years...but the idea that Aereos and others could just piggyback on their signal for nothing deserved to be killed.

  • The 4 Most Dangerous Words In The English Language [View article]
    The market weakened earlier in the year as the slowdown became evident. Since then it has rallied in the face of GDP revisions downward and of course the cacophony of "we are at all time highs! SELL! permabears." You can listen to the market, where millions of investors put billions of their own money on the line everyday, or listen to a few backward looking bureaucrats howl about January and February.

    By the way I am not "It's" grammatically ONE word, or two? :)
