  • Germany borrows for free; euro to one-year low [View news story]
    it's a bet on the Deutsche Mark (after Euro collapse). But if you'd really know what is hidden in German banks, and where German export will go in case of Euro collapse, you won't want to bet on Deutsche Mark. I guess somebody "must" do it anyway, as hedging.

  • SandRidge Mississippian Trust I: Is There A Bottom? [View article]
    "Sandridge and underwriters should be sued for materially misleading info." I second this. Results are too far from the ones promised.

  • SandRidge Permian Trust: Solid Results, Fairly Valued [View article]
    the SEC does nothing? performances are so poor that we can certainly call fraud a fraud, imho
    as they promised the moon, they should be forced to drill additional wells in order to compensate buyers: otherwise we can think they are drilling bad wells with the sole purpose of defrauding who provided them money.

  • Tesla Motors eyes manufacturing in Europe [View news story]
    I believe you can not go (legally) @ 180km/h in Germany. Germans test these speeds only when in vacation in Italy ;-) (it is also not legal in Italy, but there is not the German Police... well now there are electronic detectors so everything is a bit less easy...)

  • ZEW: ECB is creating dangerous bubbles [View news story]
    yes, German government must do some action, like exiting from the Euro, and stop the easy export dumping of the European China. Without of these 200B of extra export, "friends" in South Europe will finally be able to breath.

    EU is a bunch of stupid bureaucrats. First they mess up Lybia. Now Russia. We are going to burn coal (actually we already do).

  • Whiting's Production Estimates Lead To $9.90 Fair Value For Trust II, 24% Downside [View article]
    with today drop the game is not interesting for shorts, no more. Assuming that all the assumptions in this article are correct (I don't know but let's say), and adding a valuation error of about 10%, we are at $11. Then the shorters must pay the distributions of shorted shares, that is good money, so they will go to exit before next distribution. Today, around 15 days after div, was the best time for this game, because then there are 2,5 months to exit. If we will let them exit at this price :)

  • NYT: Petrobras hobbled by scandal and stagnation [View news story]
    government intervention and bribes are not exactly a news. it has always gone this way there. the price sometimes is up, sometimes is down. right now it seems a lot down to me. of course it pays to be prudent but this is a oil player with *big* reserves.

  • Putin warns of Ukraine gas cutoff, deliveries to Europe at risk [View news story]
    Well, while Europe's politicians spend their times in cafes and restaurants (with friends, and friends of friends), normal people is taxed at 55% (in order to pay the restaurant bill, as well as F35s and other toys; and then social security for everybody, including illegal immigrates) and often need to have 2 jobs just to feed the family and pay the mortgage.
    Add to this a nice "Value Added Tax" 20-22% to all product you purchase, and then thank God you are in the United States, and not here in Europe :(.
    Of course your politicians are hardly working to keep pace with ours, so don't be too happy...
    Well I tried to be ironic, but this is quite sad.

    it's not complicated: they want to be prepared to sell us that crap but they don't want to eat it.
