  • The 'Strong Buy' Apple Euphoria Or Why Nothing Gold Can Stay [View article]
    These are the Street's expectations that I extrapolate on. Consensus has historically overestimated by around 11% for EPS--and much more so of late.

  • Adding Another Undervalued Stock [View article]
    Emo Capital's direct subsidiary is NUVI and it operates through them. The stock is up 1.4% today as well and, in my view, will trend much higher.

    Right, that's why every time there has been a capitalistic state and a more socialistic counterpart, the former fares well while the latter struggles.

  • How The U.S. Is Quickly Becoming A Third World Country (Part 1) [View article]
    It endlessly amazes me how people of your ideology invent conspiracy theories. Support for free trade among economists is mainstream... as mainstream as evolution is to biologists. There is no revision, because there simply is no doubt among the profession that integrating global markets lifts standard of living and that introducing tariffs and quotas decreases it.

  • Retail Sales And Supply-Side Economics [View article]
    Your reference to "moral corrupt[ion]" immediately makes your bias suspect. And why don't European countries produce as strong of economic growth?... might it have something to do with not following supply-side policy?

  • A Strategic Sale Won't Save Kodak [View article]
    As an aside, I am a fan of KKR. Bash the media all you want, EK has one of the worst ratings by Wall Street analysts for a reason and it also is not a smart activist play IMO, if that's what you are considering.

  • Most Of Our Problem, Still, Is That We Have A Dead Battery: Felix Salmon Is Wrong Edition [View article]
    We do NOT need trade wars. What we do need is more liberalized free trade agreements to get the economy going. Manufacturing is just not a reality in the US since the minimum wage makes costs too high.
