    I suspect many investors do not quite comprehend the relationship of PE ratios to interest rates. Seeking Alpha user Plautos wrote a good piece on this: http://seekingalpha.co...

    Have you personally ever traded a revers leveraged ETF? A lot of folks seem to know an awful lot about them, but I can't seem to find too many folks that make comments who have actually traded them.

    By the way, I bet most of the commentators on this article have never used a typewriter, a telex machine, a record player, an 8-track tape player or a transistor radio....or an Apple IIE, yeah the Apple innovation that made Jobs a millionaire before the company almost faded away....

    There is nothing logical about a stock market. They are based on emotion, hype, and more hype. Stick around a few years.

    I've heard this all before, back in 1981, 1999, and 2006. Gee, I must be getting old. By the way, prior to June of 2007 when the first iPhone was introduced, Gartner was explaining to the general public the "ascedency of the notebook computer".....http://bit.ly/GTk3dn

    The point is, many of the young folks (with little in the way of manners by way) that knock articles here on Seeking Apha when it comes to Apple and other recent innovations have not lived through an actual tech revolution from start to finish. I have lived through five. Very few companies are able to shift and outlive their own technological innovations. One exception is IBM.

    Selling covered calls is one strategy, buying puts is another. Trading a leveraged short ETF is another. However, with the SPXU, you are not only covered for Apple but for the broader market in general. Buying, Selling, or writing Puts and Calls on Apple alone will not do that for you. Interesting anyone that understands what a "stock market" is would consider one market strategy over another amateurish. That's like stating card counters are amateurs, but progressive betters using a novel 15 hold strategy in Blackjack are professionals.

  • Wendy's Is A Great Holding For A Market Sell-Off [View article]
    Now Dr. Barclay, I really must insist that the eating habits of Texas law enforcement officers has nothing to do with the pricing of Wendy's stock. As evidence I would submit that our sheriff here in Webb County eats a half a dozen Mariachis for breakfast (Laredo-speak for Breakfast Taco) and his hat size is generally in line with our past patrons, however with perhaps a bit more gilt on his hat band given his brother is the esteemed U.S. House Representative Henry Cuellar. Perhaps a Texas-wide Sheriff breakfast shoot-out could settle the matter and the winner would recieve a share of Wendy's stock. By the way, I suspect you might enjoy reading my recent novel entitled The Truth About Chupacabras available at Amazon.com. http://amzn.to/GQg0MA

    I suspect they will keep the dividend as corporations' stocks often get hammered for lowering or taking dividends away, especially when they have just articulated to the market that a turnaround is in progress with promising results.

  • Affymax Is Ready To Run [View article]
    You are absolutely correct, but this is the first time Affymax's hiring needs have been pointed out in an investor oriented news article. Many investors do not take the time or perhaps do not have the time to read through information on company websites. Thanks for the comment.

  • Setting Up The Big Gold Short [View article]
    An indicator does not cause an event to happen, sorry. Hoffman's words cannot cause the price of gold to decline.

    From Merriam Webster
    Causal: Adj.
    1: expressing or indicating cause : causative
    2: of, relating to, or constituting a cause <the causal agent of a disease>
    3: involving causation or a cause : marked by cause and effect

    I don't believe I stated that Hoffman's comment is a causal effect. Thanks for reading though.
