  • Some health insurers request rate increases under Obamacare [View news story]
    This just allowed the poor & indigent to get care & hospitals who actually got paying customers. Now the insurers want to recover their piece of what they paid out.

  • Lightbridge says four large utilities ask NRC to review its metallic fuel design [View news story]
    Best of luck to you if your long. But with little revenue & their cash burn, or substantial dilution I don't see how it works out.

  • Taser climbs higher after new order [View news story]
    I'm not short. I just don't know any other company that reports piecemeal sales like this, and hence my sarcastic comments. If every company did this we'd be inundated with news and I suspect more companies would trade with a higher p/e. It' fairly brilliant but annoying. Oddly CEO & others just exercised options that expire far in the future and sold them. Best of luck to you.

    And in other news GILD sold another regimen of Sovaldi, STJ sold a heart valve, SWHC sold guns a police department. Etc., etc. These announcements are getting old.

    What genius couldn't figure out what size container was needed. Worse, these are people who work on nuclear power plants.

    Raise the wage that high and no business will exist. This will be one interesting experiment.

  • SolarCity Fires Warning Shot At Hawaii Utility: The Future Is Here [View article]
    I asked specifically about the Northeast, and you kind of deflected the question. Will I have enough room on my property to house so much in the way of panels? Am I heating my home with electricity from a battery? If so, it better be quite a big one. We have so much natural gas available & at such a cheap price there's no reason to switch. As for my Honda gas generator it can probably burn about 1 gal of fuel in 8 hours so I'm not sweating it. I don't doubt in the future you might be right, but I remember solar companies from the 70's. If I invested in them I'd be broke now. Public utilities have performed quite superbly since, and I don't believe their going away tomorrow. You might also have to watch out for the government reducing subsidies for solar and the situation skews even worse.

  • SolarCity Fires Warning Shot At Hawaii Utility: The Future Is Here [View article]
    O.K. Hawaii, CA, AZ, & several others might have a shot. What are the economics in the Northeast? I don't think we're even close. And what do you do with the battery once it's expired? Does Tesla recycles it, or does that become the owners problem. I'll stick with the power companies for awhile longer & keep my nice quiet gas sipping Honda generator in good shape.

  • Pfizer rumored to bidding for Swedish drug maker [View news story]
    Figured they usually pick it off the wires. I don't think their a paid news release firm. Happens I guess. I'm old fashioned give me a few sources like the good 'ol days, not combing through a plethora of sources. I don't have the screen space or the speed.
