  • $200 Oil Is Coming While We Waste a Perfectly Good Crisis (Part 3) [View article]
    The energy policy of the US is beyond inept. I'm all for free markets, but we shouldn't be so naive to allow our security to be threatened by relying on foreign sources. Oil has bubbled above $50 because the markets know that nobody is prepared for the resumption of oil demand. Just about every oil producing nation has cut back on exploration and production just at the time that long term demand is likely to spike. This recession won't last forever.

  • Nuverra Environmental: A Sinking Ship With Default Risk [View article]
    Mike847,
    Have to wonder the same thing. It sure seems this was written with the intent of causing a panic and not based on any real fundamental insight into the business. The comment about the name change is absolutely absurd. If the article had solely focused on the debt position and the sluggish market, it might have been worth a full read. The whole non-sense of even mentioning Jim Cramer questions the whole article, not to mention the claims of Dick Heckmann jumping ship though he is still Chairman. Absurd allegations backed up by no facts.

  • Some Apple (AAPL) commentary: 1) Horace Dediu estimates the iPhone and iPad's component costs respectively rose 29% and 65% Y/Y in FQ2, well above rev. growth of 3% and 40%. This, along with a mix shift towards iPads, is mostly responsible for Apple's gross margin drop (rather than price pressure). 2) Tero Kuittinen sees similarities between 2013 Apple and 2007 Nokia. "The strongest parallel is in the weird way both companies started fighting the consumer preference for larger displays … and then dug in as margins began eroding rapidly." Tim Cook may have just hinted a bigger iPhone will eventually arrive. But how long will it take? (yesterday[View news story]
    Great point on how MSFT had an ecosystem that trapped users into the products for the last decade. The difference is that nobody liked MSFT products while everybody loves AAPL products. It will be years before people leave AAPL even if Samsung were to make better products.

    NOK is a horrible example. Never heard of anybody that saw NOK as a brand. The phones were always the cheap, affordable option. In fact, I never had one b/c they were never appealing.

  • Pres. Obama reportedly won't be making a new budget offer to Republicans today, and will instead reiterate last week's proposal. Stocks have tanked on the news. S&P -1%. Dow -1.1%. NASDAQ -0.7%[View news story]
    Did you really expect anything else with this President? He has zero business sense and even common sense. Oddly he thinks this will help his legacy though it will only make him look foolish yet again.

  • Apple: The Time to Buy Has Passed [View article]
    Sure you won't make a fortune in AAPL as these levels, but it still has another year or two of great returns. It isn't time to leave the tables yet.

  • Stocks are now plunging after the European Union energy minister says the situation at Japan's nuclear plants is " effectively out of control " and to expect "possible catastrophic events" in the next hours. Dow -1% to 11,733, S&P -0.8% to 1271, Nasdaq -0.8% to 2646.  [View news story]
    and then they said he had no actual knowledge. Its just conjecture on his point and very irresponsible.

  • If you avoided the Black Friday hype, you should come out ahead. You'll have a much better chance of getting good deals across the board if you just wait. Retailers don't want you to know this, but they enter the holiday shopping season with lots of inventory - and if they don't move enough of it early, they'll start cutting prices.  [View news story]
    but what if they move alot of inventory? you won't get many bargains then.

  • We can't keep kicking the pension can down the road, Pension Tsunami's Jack Dean says. "The whole idea of the pension was to provide public servants with a decent retirement. It wasn't to make them wealthy, to allow them to retire younger and with more money and be able to go off and play golf while the rest of us supported them."  [View news story]
    Amen!

  • Due for a Correction? Market Is Already Priced for Grim Future [View article]
    Agree that a reduction in pessimism is the reason for the rally and it has nothing to do with anything bullish that is about to occur. The PE ratio based on earnings next year is likely sub 15 now and not at all expensive. Anybody throwing around high PE ratios is insanely ignorant of investing common sense. Would you pay for what somebody made last year or what they will make next year?

  • Four Reasons We're Headed Even Higher [View article]
    The negativity of the comments tells you everything you need to know about investor sentiment and the fact that this market will continue to rally. SP500 at 1,200 to 1,300 is where the market is headed with little to know resistance.

    Look at any poll on websites and the majority still expects the market to be lower. Load up!

    Some times I watch her show just too feel better about myself. Do grownups really need to call Suze to see if they can afford a LCD TV?

  • Did Seadrill Just Become A Gold Mine To New Investors? [View article]
    ian25ss,
    You misunderstand the basic concept of what SDRL did with the divy suspension. The company is using the funds in another manner, it isn't the same as suspending b/c it doesn't have the money anymore.

  • The Obama administration reportedly considers requiring sponsors of the Keystone (TRP) pipeline to reduce the project's environmental risks before it can be approved, which effectively would put off a final decision until after the 2012 election to temporarily avoid antagonizing either the unions that support the pipeline or the environmentalists who oppose it.  [View news story]
    Need a president that finds solutions instead of playing politics. Gas prices are crushing his party but he does nothing. Crazy.

  • Congressional leaders are set to meet Pres. Obama tonight to nail down a budget. While some worry about a potential government shutdown and others welcome it, this argument is about lowering the deficit by a measly 0.4% of GDP - "spitting distance" in the coming U.S. fiscal meltdown.  [View news story]
    whats so bad about a govt shutdown?
