  • Book Review: John C. Bogle's 'Don’t Count on It!' [View article]
    Here! Here! Glad someone else avoids the Bogle Kool Aid. Ever dealt with transferring $$$ from Vanguard? They drag their feet like crazy. If you're only making 25bps...you've got to keep it in the boat as long as possible.

  • A Tale of Two Pharmas: Outlooks for Lilly and Merck [View article]
    Very good points. I still think he's there to do the deal. But it's one man's opinion. Nevertheless, love seeing the mega-pharmas with single digit multiples.

  • Regulators close seven banks in five states, six through assumption agreements (including $1.6B-asset Hillcrest Bank in Overland Park, Kan.) and one in Arizona that couldn't find a partner and simply paid out deposits. Total for 2010: 139 failed FDIC-insured institutions.  [View news story]
    Also remember...1000 S&L's or so failed during the S&L crisis. Why the gov't hasn't created some kind of RTC for our current mess, which is real estate driven also, is beyond me.

  • Previewing Friday's Report: Good Jobs News Is Bad News [View article]
    I don't believe in the "good news is bad news" thing anymore. We're so in the ditch we need some more good news until it can be viewed as bad news.
