  • Sodastream (SODA +3%) closes with a healthy gain thanks to a bullish William Blair note. The firm is high on the long-term potential of the home soda machine market, and thinks growing U.S. sales could allow Sodastream's annual EPS to reach $5 in the next several years (2012 consensus is $1.61). WB also reiterates its prediction that Wal-Mart will sell Sodastream machines, and expects drugstores and grocery stores to follow suit in 2013.  [View news story]
    I own a sodastream and its cool....but I can already tell we won't be using it much in the future. It will likely just sit there and collect dust which means we won't be buying much more gas/syrup.

  • Jim Rogers says the hit that stocks took today over concerns of an economic slowdown in China is actually a good thing. “I’m delighted to see it,” Rogers says. “They need to do that. It’ll be good for China, it’ll be good for the world, and it will present opportunities for all of us. I hope that the Chinese market collapses so I can buy Chinese shares.”  [View news story]
    You seem to only address them commenting, not on the actual topic. Do you agree or disagree on China?

  • Greg Smith may really believe Goldman Sachs (GS) is run by "morally bankrupt" people out to rip off their clients. But that's old news, Charlie Gasparino writes; Smith needs to wake up to the less-sincere motives of the NY Times, who published his resignation letter that went viral. Gasparino sees Smith as a pawn used by the Times to score political points and advance its class warfare agenda.  [View news story]
    I don't understand how it scores any political points....Wall Street owns Obama and Wall Street will own Romney if he is elected. Slamming Goldman doesn't benefit Obama, imo.

  • President Obama's anti-drilling argument uses false statistics, argues CNBC's Larry Kudlow. The president argues that America uses over 20% of the world’s oil, but has only 2% of the world’s known oil reserves. Patently untrue, says Kudlow. The U.S. has 1.4T barrels of recoverable oil, which is enough to meet all U.S. oil needs for about the next 200 years, without any imports.  [View news story]
    Raise the price drastically on anything and the consumption will decrease....that doesn't mean we'd keep using less if it was $2.00 a gallon.

  • "We can't just drill our way to lower gas prices when we consume 20% of the world's oil," President Obama says during his weekly address. Obama took the opportunity to advocate for his "all of the above" strategy, that relies less on foreign fossil fuels, and more on: "solar, wind, natural gas, biofuels, and more."  [View news story]
    TRUTH!

    im confused....drilling won't lower gas prices? That doesn't make any sense. Maybe he should be more specific.

  • Apple's (AAPL) next iPad, due to be unveiled on Wednesday, will be called the iPad HD rather than the iPad 3, reports CNET. The report backs up a July scoop which also claimed Apple's next iPad would "sit alongside" the iPad 2 rather than fully replace it.  [View news story]
    As someone who has been waiting for the IPad 3 to finally buy a tablet, I am pretty disappointed that this is sounding like less than an upgrade than I had hoped. That being said, I am still going to get one, because I am tired of waiting.....and all the other Apple addicts out there I'm sure will have to have the latest and greatest as well, even if it is marginally better at best.

  • Greece is on course to default, as it looks set to fall short of the 95% agreement it needs from private creditors to secure its bond swap, The Daily Telegraph reports. Athens is ready to use collective action clauses (CAC) to impose the deal if it receives 66% approval, which is likely to prompt ratings agencies and the ISDA to declare default.  [View news story]
    Not any tax payers money at risk??? Are you kidding me?

    Just because the actual taxes aren't being used, doesn't mean the money the taxpayers are earning/saving/investing isn't at risk. Give me a break! That was quite possibly the dumbest comment I have ever seen on this site.

    I suppose inflation just magically happens by itself, huh? Or does that just effect "other" money that isn't the taxpayer's? LOL

    Like a few of the above posters said....activating the CAC and NOT triggering CDS is the real issue everyone is waiting to see play out. Nobody cares about Greece at this point.

  • Here's an interesting twist on the employment picture: Dentists across the country are noticing an increase in new patients coming through the door. Why? More people with health insurance as a result of getting full-time jobs.  [View news story]
