Quick Chat Number 132. Beginning 12/23/10



Thanks to all who participate here, in OG's Quick Chat.  Please be respectful and appreciate the liberty of this space.
There will likely be only one more QC posted by me (98th).  H.T. Love will begin managing this blog with the first post after December 26. He is planning to continue posting at this location.  

Best wishes to all, for a happy holiday season.
 
 In the past few days discussions have included coal and energy, with some alternative energy stocks again being mentioned. There is ongoing but less prominent discussion of rare earths and precious metals as these have traded in a range recently. Some limited favorable comments on select financials are beginning to appear. Retail and homebuilders are receiving preliminary, cautious comments.

 If I could do a word cloud of the comments, I bet the  topics mentioned here would prove to be a leading indicator. 
 
Stocks discussed in QC 131:  AG, ANR, AXPW, BSDM, CAGC, CLDX, CPST, CRDC, DANG, DDIC, GBG, GDLNF, HBAN, HDY, HTM, ICO, IMAX, IMGN, IVAN, JAG, KNDI, LPH, LYSCF, MCP, MEE, MT, NAK, NATUF, NUSMT, NVAX, PAL PLG, PSEC, RFO, RTN, S, SLW, SVM, V WFC, XIDE, YONG
