  • Clean Energy: What Was Piper Thinking? [View article]
    The worst part is that the market actually bought the claims by P.J. No matter what longs knew about the story, it still pushed down the stock. Unfortunately the little guys lose again and the analysts win. The SEC should be investigating that call.

  • 3D Systems: Has The Printer Jammed? [View article]
    Lost interest after about the 10th paragraph. Trashing the stock just b/c of acquisitions is crazy. Also comparing growth from 2000 to 2008 with the current period makes little to no sense.

    Maybe the article has a point later on, but who has time to read all of that.

  • Corporate pension funds have more assets in bonds than equities for the first time in a decade, a sharp shift from just 5 years ago when the amount in stocks doubled those in fixed income. "A lot of lessons have been learned," says a strategist. Markets have a way of doing that. Will new lessons be taught in coming years?  [View news story]
    Funny how no lesson has been learned. Clearly rotating to a new asset class trading at record levels is the wrong way to play the markets, but even the biggest players in the market repeat those mistakes.

  • President Obama signs the payroll tax bill into law, which will extend payroll-tax cuts through the end of 2012, prolong extended unemployment benefits, and prevent a cut in pay for doctors who treat Medicare patients. The House and Senate passed the bill last week.  [View news story]
    more robbing from the future to pay for today.

  • Eurozone Debt Crisis: We May Have Seen Worst [View article]
    Your too focused on the forest to see the trees. The global growth stock have had a major capitulation already. ANR is down 75% from its Feb high. Many other stocks as well down 50-70%. Do you expect them to go much lower?

    What has kept the market up so well is that dividend paying stocks are holding up very well. Some utilities have hit 52 week highs recently. The absurdly low interest rates are pushing people into these higher yielding stocks when they would normally roll over as well. The averages would be 950 already if not for that. Might get a final whoosh down, but its likely for a rally.

  • Bill Frezza finds California's proposed rule that would fine automakers $5,000 per vehicle if at least 5.5% of the new cars they sell in the state aren't electric "so astonishing you have to wonder whether the destruction of an entire industry is its actual intent."  [View news story]
    Um, shouldn't sales be based on demand?

  • The Black Cloud Looming Over Coal Stocks [View article]
    Really, they overpaid for MEE? Its still incredible that analysts attempt to value mining companies based on EBITDA instead of reserves. Based on reserves, the analysts valued MEE worth 68 to 99 b/c they have huge met coal reserves. Still seem overvalued?

  • It's a “game changer," David Rosenberg says, referring to the five times in the past 70 years when oil prices doubled within a two-year time frame. "All but one involved a recession for the U.S. economy and that was in 2005 during the height of the credit and housing boom, which acted as a huge offset. But oil prices did keep rising... so the recession may have been delayed... not derailed.”  [View news story]
    any legit analyst has to throw away the peaks and valleys of the last 2 years. Its irresponsible to take the lows from 2009 and pretend like oil doubled due to a surge in demand instead of a bounce back from a depression.

  • Why I'm Short Amazon: Waiting for State Governments to Wise Up [View article]
    oddly everybody seems to be missing the point that its anti-competitive for small mom and pop businesses to have to charge customers sales tax while AMZN doesn't.

    All for eliminating sales tax entirely, but no way should AMZN have a different tax code applied to them.

  • The 2,300-page financial reform bill promises to generate historic levels of red tape - 533 new sets of rules, 60 studies, 94 reports, the Chamber of Commerce calculates. "Trying to write and implement these new regulations and the litigation that follows will take years to do... Not the way to get rid of uncertainty or grow jobs, unless you are a bureaucrat or a lawyer, in which case, this is the bill for you."  [View news story]
    the solution is vote them all out in November. This bill doesn't fix the problems. Period!

  • Potential Impact of Drilling Ban on Rig Operators [View article]
    lost oil production has to be made up somewhere else so i don't see how the long term is all that impacted. Won't we just move more oil production to the likes of Brazil or West Africa?

  • Did a Clever SEC Bait Goldman Sachs Into Compounding Its Legal Problems? [View article]
    Seriously doubt this is the 'kiss of death'. The SEC isn't making a very good case for fraud. Only the rating agencies appear negligent and they aren't even barking up that tree. Pandering to the masses is all this amounts to.

  • FOMC: Wimping Out, Again [View article]
    Typical fed. Always behind. Next year they'll be forced to raise rates too fast and it'll eventually choke off growth. Back to the boom and bust cycles which should be expected when interest rates get jerked up and down so much.

  • The end of used cars? From Obama's GM bankruptcy speech yesterday: "And that's why I'm calling on Congress to pass fleet modernization legislation that can provide a credit to consumers who turn in old cars and purchase cleaner, more fuel-efficient cars."  [View news story]
    So we reward the people that have been driving gas guzzlers! Brilliant system. When will we stop rewarding the people causing problems by giving them incentives to improve? Why not give a credit to people that drive gas efficient cars? Or better yet, just let the free market system work. Let GM go out of business and then we'll all be forced to buy fuel efficient Toyota's and Honda's.
