  • Investors Once Again Getting Stuck With The Short End Of The Stick [View article]
    Dodd-Frank is a deadweight burden on businesses with no discernible beneficial effects in the years since it has passed.
    If you aren't cynical enough to see that IPOs are pumped by the firms that want the business, no amount of nanny-state hand holding will help you.
    And finally, once you receive inside information and trade upon it, it will only move the markets when it is widely disseminated. The latter destroys its "insideness," faster than making it illegal.
    Finally, If the government want to get rid of "casinos" they can get out of the lottery business themselves. As the saying goes, until they do.......

  • Recent Hindenburg Omens Signaled Caution, Now What? [View article]
    Chris thanks. What is good about articles like yours is they encourage prudence; not panic. I have followed similar indicators and have trimmed my positions given some signs of internal deterioration. As a result I have underperformed as the market boils higher. BUT: if your concerns are correct, I will be in better shape when the correction(s) come in the future. If they are NOT and the market regains its internal strength, I still have shown a profit, even if I did not "beat the market." My goal is to retire with adequate funds---keeping ahead of the Joneses is secondary.

  • As Ruble Dies, Russia Sells Crown Jewels To Stem The Chaos [View article]
    In the face of markets, at least the Russian central bank has begun to realize how pathetic, impotent, and useless it is. Don't ya just wish the FED would do the same?

  • The cereal-to-yogurt shift continues [View news story]
    Yogurt is fine but it is NOT a breakfast. You need something "meaty" and "bulky" to get ya started and going for the day. Bacon, eggs, french toast, coffee, home that is AMERIKAN food!

  • Global Credit Markets Have Proclaimed An End To The Recovery [View article]
    Well lets see if the sky falls next year. Certainly some nice bones of info to chew on in this article. Oil prices and economic growth is a two way cause and effect street; lets wait and see which one is the dog and which one is the tail.

  • Europe turns lower as Draghi plays down stimulus hopes [View news story]
    Draghi you worthless Euro-wannabe. You want the Germans to work harder so you can be more generous with THEIR wealth. You and Obama need a mass-transit bus rid to one of those Chinese "pseudo-cities" where you can vanish in the hundreds of thousands of empty buildings.
