  • 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 sure...it "It's" grammatically ONE word, or two? :)

  • The Over-Capitalization Curse [View article]
    Mr Smead: didn't the "Small firm effect" disappear quickly once it was discovered and publicized in the 1980s? VALUE LINE shows the results from various strategies (small firm, low PE, low Price/Sales, their own rankings etc) and if I recall the small form effect disappeared about the same time it was discovered. HA! :)

  • Retirement Strategy: What I Will Do When The Market Corrects [View article]
    Good point Wiz-dude. When you set price targets and valuation levels as the author suggests, bear markets become OPPORTUNITIES. And instead of hemming and hawing, you set your limits and live with them.

    All the while collecting dividends. yummy?

  • Economist Fred Carstensen: GDP Up 2.5 - 3% Unlikely With Sequestration, Congress Inaction [View article]
    Necessary is not the issue. First and foremost is the Federalism. The federal government has no interest whatsoever in financing highway development except in the following instances:

    (1) The interstates, an explicitly designed federal highway system than can (loosely) be argued is of military significance.

    (2) The US routes (1, 20, 66, etc) that the Federal government sets minimum standards for. To the extent this is more than any individual state would opt for, the FEDs should pony up the difference.

    (3) other federal tit-for-tat requirements.

    Other than that roadways are a state responsibility and should remain so. In turn local roads should be a local responsibility.

    I am amazed at how little discussion of this issue even mentions economic issuesand federalism issues. Instead it is .."THIS BRIDGE has RUST! OBAMA SAVE US!"

    Typical Northeast liberal economic analysis. The government isn't spending enough money! Taxes are not high enough. And Europe and China are exemplars. At least he admits it was research universities and not AlGore who invented the internet.

    Complete fluff.

  • The Next Bear Market: How To Protect Your Assets [View article]
    8 days? What weather forecasters do YOU listen to? Maybe 24 hours. Absolutely essential we raise taxes though, to save +/- 1.5 degrees Centigrade 100 years from now though.

    Tomorrows forecast...partly cloudy with scattered bullishness toward noon!

  • 6 Dividend Stocks Working Even When I'm Not [View article]
    Much like ants stroke aphids to collect nectars, we capitalist piggs (sic) stroke workers and collect dividends.

    Seriously Div4Life: are the tax ramifications of the REITs and Property trusts all that complicated? That scares me away from them.
