  • Is Japan On Track With Its Economic Growth Plan? [View article]
    Golly Joe love the way your cogent analysis dismisses thousands of pages of unadulterated baloney from Nobel prizewinners and Keynesian peanut galleries. Well done!

  • What If Deflation Comes To Pass? [View article]
    Sure...deflation increases the real value of debts. It also increases the real value of ASSETS, leaving "society's" balance sheet just fine. In fact it punishes the borrower, who more often than not refuses to live within his means. It helps the lender, who more often than not is frugal and prudent. NO WONDER east coast liberal elite economic theory---which has dominated the profession since the 1930s---dislikes deflation.

  • Asia Happy To Buy All Our Gold Under The Radar [View article]
    Japan was more than willing to buy all our gold (And a lot of Seattle Real Estate) back in the 1980s. How did that work out?

  • Strategy To Tactics: Why Screen And How I Screen [View article]
    Todd I don't know if FINVIZ will let you do this or not, but the final lists of stocks that you get can be sensitive to the ORDER at which the screens are applied. You might randomize the order and see if you get slightly different lists.

  • Bubble Stage Of This Bull Market May Be Nigh [View article]
    Thanks for the article. The warning of a bubble to COME, is valuable, as you give us guidelines to look for as this story unfolds. If these guidelines materialize, your thesis becomes stronger and more useful. If they do not, then investors can assume a bubble is not forming and act on some other investment criteria. Does your article mean you expect the next phase of this market to be a traditional bull market blow off top? YOWZERS!

  • Is The Bottom In On Gold? It Doesn't Matter To Me [View article]
    With the amount of oil and natural gas that the US has to sell in overseas markets as a result of fracking and 3-d drilling, whatever backscratching the Russkies and Chinamen do it unimportant. Talk about leaving the dollar has been going on for decades. All talk, no action. The US budgetary and financial situation is far better than any nation I can think of.

  • AT&T: Moving Ahead Despite Challenges [View article]
    There is an old saying among day traders: do not day trade a stock you wouldn't want to own for 10 years. When I do short term trades I use T as a market proxy for that reason. Plus the dividend income strategies can be used to get capital losses to offset gains while also collecting eligible dividends.

  • Retired Investors Should Not Fear Recessions Or A Bad Market: Part 1 [View article]
    What a great list to start with and select a subset (if needed) based upon dividend yield, and fundamental analysis like balance sheet strength and such. Kudos Chuck.

  • Dow Theory: Yellow Flags Or Green Light? [View article]
    The Dow Theory has lasted longer than an analytical model, technical OR fundamental.

    Case closed! Go trannies!

  • The Fed Won't Change Its Language? REALLY!? [View article]
    Steve does it look more DOVISH or more hawkish, when you look beyond the maintenance of "considerable time?"

    Between Hawks and Doves i think I am back in the Vietnam War days.

    Trying to interpret the FED would be best left to the Oracle at Delphi.

  • How Investors Should React To Falling Oil Prices [View article]
    Thanks for an article that reflects the INCREDIBLE insight that lower prices are bullish for consumer and the economy. Today's low inflation readings were a direct spin-off of lower oil prices. Why people think higher prices for everything (a.k.a. inflation) should be our economic goal escapes me.

  • Core CPI weakest in four years [View news story]
    OK thanks. I would imagine the best way to say it is problems in one asset market (the $) lead to bad effects in other asset markets. Grrrr.....

  • In The Next Correction, Will You Be A Winner Or A Loser? [View article]
    I fear in the next correction even if I ***AM*** a winner I will also be a whiner. And maybe even a wiener.

    I have to laugh too. The gyrations in the markets fit what most of you commenters have been saying, as well. Gold is lower though...well, for now anyway! :)
