  • Take profits in Susquehanna says Boenning & Scattergood [View news story]
    It's pretty hard not to ring the register on a 32% day... No need to be greedy on this one.

  • Positive reviews for the 2015 F-150 pile up [View news story]
    Problem number one was it was an auto trans and most likely the CVT version. CVT trans take some time to get used to because there is essentially no shift and it is quite odd if you are not used to it.

  • GE ties cash, margin goals to Immelt's compensation [View news story]
    Share price is a worse metric. A three year old could have been CEO for most companies over the last five years and still achieved a high share price. Not to mention, share price is a faux indicator of a company's strength.

    I think improving a company is a good way to base a bonus on. He is actually earning his money by being forced to grow cash and improve the company's performance. Most CEOs do NOT have to improve operations and they still get bonuses. Not sure where all the hatred comes from on this... The MDCC could have easily said, "here you go Mr. CEO, have 500,000 shares just for waking up this morning."

  • GM says not liable for pre-bankruptcy cars [View news story]
    Nice business model. Change to a faux name and then claim you are a different company and are not liable for anything prior to the name change.

    I wonder what else GM is hiding?

    No need for interest rates to go higher if inflation is staying low.

  • Nikkei soars, yen slides, after BOJ unexpectedly eases monetary policy [View news story]
    I've said the same thing for a while. It's an interesting discussion because there are several negative ramifications when oil prices fall, but the question always comes back to whether the positive effects of consumers being able to spend more money offsets the negative ramifications of falling oil prices. I personally say yes, falling oil prices is a good thing, but many disagree.

  • Q3 GDP +3.5% [View news story]
    Q3 is also the fiscal YE for the government, which means that spending is higher in Q3. No election trickery here. It happens in non election years as well.

  • GoPro -10.2%; founders' organization released from lockup [View news story]
    I'd say a camera on a stick is a more viable business model than a website for packaging and shipping discounted products and websites for friends to gossip. All of those are doomed long term...

  • Janus Capital +19% after firm hires Pimco's Bill Gross [View news story]
    This is great news for PIMCO. Hopefully his ridiculous "new normal" gets bagged. Carry and roll down is not going to work either. Bill Gross was going to cost PIMCO hundreds of millions of dollars with his stubbornness to try any means to gain back his 2000s luster.

    My question is does he have the energy to properly "manage client assets"?

  • 3D Systems higher on reported GM deal [View news story]
    The language sounds very vague. Sounds like hearsay to me. I wouldn't buy the rumor. But with the stock price half of what it was in January, DDD is an interesting speculative play.

  • 3 Reasons Why Amazon's 'Cash Flow' Is A Trap [View article]
    The good news is, like many ecommerce/social media businesses, AMZN is a great company that provides an amazing service to countless consumers. The bad news is these types of business are NOT meant for the stock market. There is very little (if any) value for investors at the end of the rainbow. Go private and continue to provide consumers with an amazing service and everyone will be happy.

  • U.S. weighing ending truck tariff [View news story]
    End the tariffs and let the markets decide. If a business can't get customers to buy the product they deserve to shut down... Or get puffed back up with taxpayer dollars. Either way, let the markets decide.
