  • Why now? The loud cover of Barron's calls for Dow 15K in 2013. The corresponding article relies on data from Jeremy Siegel, whose Stocks for the Long Run came out while the 1990s run was still a wholesome bull market. His message eventually got twisted into an "all stocks, no matter the price" mantra, with others publishing Dow 36,000 to mark the epic top.  [View news story]
    A lot of Apple investors have this same thought :)

    being a bull is one thing (and i am a long term bull).. being a BLIND bull is another. i am seeing ALOT of BBs coming out of the woodwork. That is both bullish and bearish for the market. Bullish because new money is going to start chasing performance, buying hand over fist with articles like this. Bearish because when the rug does get pulled (and be sure it will) there is going to be a shit ton of BLIND BULLS running for the door like George Castanza in a fire drill and it will only magnify the epic sell off.

  • Contrarians start to bang the drum for a turn lower in the market after seeing a host of analysts and pundits - including Dr. Doom and Blackrock's Larry Fink - turn to the bullish side on fundamental and technical factors. Continental Capital Advisors warns that while some market watchers see investor bullishness as an indicator that stocks will move higher, it believes lopsided sentiment is the Achilles' heel for markets. Hedge fund manager Uri Landesman keeps it even simpler, noting that "just to sustain the current levels you'd need a surfeit of good news." [View news story]

  • Travelzoo 'Deals' Spin-Off Would Create Squeeze [View article]
    you didnt answer my question. you simply referred to EXPE and TRIP. Please go into detail as to what TZOO would be without its deals business. It would be nothing. TZOO IS ONLY a deal business. This author is poorly educated and seems to be a bag holder from back when TZOO was $90

  • Is It Really Time To Jump Into Stocks? [View article]
    great article... thoughtful and creative charts (kudos for the lion king reference). Correction is coming... VIX at yearly lows should have been a major indicator, as was Roubini, Cramer, and Fink all confidently boasting that stocks were the place to be (only after the best January in recent memory). To me, that was the short term top. We will see EU start to matter, China hard landing become a possibility, and global growth as a whole begin to slow. This is not to say that stocks may be an amazing investment for the long run (which I think they are), but we got WAYY to ahead of ourselves with the first month of 2012 seemingly erasing investors memories of what the global economy really looks like. Only thing that is keeping us afloat is ZIRP, LRTO, and propects of QE3 (which I beleive are already somewhat baked in to the market).
    Cheers.

  • Greece's largest police union accuses EU and IMF officials of "blackmail, covertly abolishing or eroding democracy and national sovereignty," and threatens their arrest, specifically mentioning the IMF's Poul Thomsen and the ECB's Klaus Masuch.

    If they spun off the deals unit, what would be left? Essentially, Travelzoo's entire business model is deals. You are saying spin off local deals into one company and email deals into another?

    You honestly couldnt make this stuff up... I am going for a Summer 2013 Blockbuster starring Paul Giamatti in some role, along with Kevin Spacey...

  • Turning $100,000 Into Half A Million In 2012 [View article]
    Best of luck Rocco. Although I was one of your biggest hecklers in 2011 much of my problem was your condescending tone to criticism rather than your actual investment ideas. It seems that has toned down a bit.

    I'll be interested to see how you do in 2012 and I commend you on upping the ante to 100k (it will also draw more views than 10k, as makes for a nicer headline). Successful or not you are definitely putting your reputation on the line by publicly announcing your trades and for that I commend you.

    in saying this you are assuming there is a constant increase in economic activity. The Fed and ECB are injecting more money than ever before into a world economy that appears to be slowing... no?

    Please inform me on how so. I am not saying I am NOT wrong, as I am still engaged in the process of life long learning and pursuit of knowledge, but in order to learn I must be informed. Your response is not informational in anyway. Thanks.
