    I'm waiting on the US subsidy program to kick in to balance the high price of oil so the solar and renewable stocks will come back up. (tongue in cheek here folks)

  • Stay Away From American Capital Agency! [View article]
    Nope, you just got to the table late. Those of us that have been doing this a while did not see this sector like the rest of the market and were in a long while ago, I've been zero'd out by dividend for a while so both the dividend and the security price are free money at this point.

  • Futures slide as Russian troops reportedly enter Ukraine [View news story]
    Oh dear! Get the foil out, next thing you know you'll be accusing N. Korea of the same thing. I do agree this is all a power play on Russia's part, but calling it manipulation of the market is just silly.

    Once again the weak comments from after the fact PT raises garner an increase in algorithmic trade executions.

  • Keurig Details Are Not Released: SodaStream Should Continue To Dominate The Home Soda Market [View article]
    The 12oz soda is the most appropriate measure as it is the least expensive as well as the most common home use item. The 20oz and 1L bottles are targeted at convenience stores, not home. As well they cost more than the cans do when compared price per oz. If you bring in the sales cost of the 20oz and 1L bottles the cost of the competition increases thus making SS an even better deal. Co-branded items are roughly similar in cost to the Name brands that co-own them. The same is true for SS as well, the co-branded flavors are priced similar to the SS generic flavors.

    I don't think that is really Rep. or Dem. thing, I think that is all politicians. Both sides are in it for them not us.

  • Negative rates not the end of moves for the ECB [View news story]
    No, I agree with Gary's statement on its face. Often people confuse the shift in money and look at it in too narrow a focus. He does not separate out the issues most of Africa faces, which Bud points out. Both are correct in my est.

    The cure for such rampant sociopolitical issues is so multifaceted that I cannot even begin to correct them. Much of MENA faces the same issues, corruption supported by citizens kept unaware to hold power in place. Just had this conversation this morning with a now US Cit. who's parents came over from N.A. for a visit.

  • GM to offer embedded Wi-Fi option in 2015 models [View news story]
    I see a whole lot of safety concern with this, however, nothing that cannot be achieved with current cell phones so I don't think it poses much of an increased safety risk above what is already the problem, which is a distracted driver not the device that allows them to do it.

  • Report: Dish Network pushing for merger talks with DirecTV [View news story]
    I have to agree, if a merger between the two were to happen, I'd expect service to drop even worse. DTV has been great to work with and Dish was just plain a pain.

  • It's academic: Consumers don't need dealerships [View news story]
    The general accepted theory is that dealerships need the protection due to high outlay of cost for the inventory. As a political tool they have it covered as, in many communities, the dealerships as a group are among the largest in tax base. Much like the call for need of license for barber shops and nail salons I don't think they are there to protect the consumers only to protect the business.
