  • Industry wary of overreacting to any sign of oil recovery, EOG CEO says  [View news story]
    How can he speak for the rest of the oil sector? They can't get some collusion together now to shut in production. When the price is profitable no central authority will decide when the spigots open again.

  • Google robot finally gets a driver's license  [View news story]
    Driverless cars? That would make the driving experience as exciting as the bubble car Google has been employing in its tests. Who would want to buy a high performance car that drives itself? I don't even want to use the cruise control.

  • Trump, Sanders capture New Hampshire  [View news story]
    The spoiled millennials are going to be our undoing. Catered, pampered, being told they were all special, & generally lazy and expecting everything from their parents. How can we expect anything different of an outcome from who they support?

  • Obama's Clean Power Plan blocked by Supreme Court  [View news story]
    Can't wait to get this guy out of office. But, I'm ever more fearful of who might potentially replace him. God help us all.

  • Disney now down 3.2% after 'Star Wars' pushes record quarterly earnings  [View news story]
    I dropped ESPN this month & took a smaller package. With what Verizon calls a "Regional Sports Network Fee" of $8.44 a month saved myself over $25 a month & a few less other channels. Did I lose some things I like yes, but I'd rather have the $300 a year in my pocket rather than theirs. I can see people getting very annoyed, I know I am. 1st the cost of seeing a live game became out of reach, now it's getting out of control watching it at home.

  • Bank Of America: How Much Worse Can It Get?  [View article]
    The Fed's policy of rate hikes was looked forward to so banks could expand their margins. The lower rates go the worse it becomes for them. Even though the Fed has not backed off it's anticipated rate hike the market thinks otherwise. The 10 year bond is at 1.7%, and the fear has that rates ARE NOT GOING UP are the reason I think banks are getting hurt. Also the likelihood of defaults are not helping especially in the oil patch.

  • The Tesla Bubble Bursts  [View article]
    Foolish for anyone that wealthy to use their stock as collateral. Recall CHK & VRX. Both hard charging executives and the problems they've had..

  • Battered Royal Caribbean ship returns to port  [View news story]
    Maybe if the ships beam wasn't so narrow & it's decks stacked so high it might have done better in the storm. But, I digress the whole point is to pack as many people on board as possible & maximize revenue.

  • Japan's negative rates not yet working out  [View news story]
    Any hopes of rekindling a Japanese economy are near moot. An ever aging & declining population (who consume less & less). A horrific immigration policy due to almost racist policies & an ever more competitive trade situation and I see little remedy to their problems.

  • Leading gene editing firm Editas Medicine on deck for IPO  [View news story]
    From Jan. 2014 to July 2015 there were issued options from .03 cents to $3.23. On Sept. 14th 2015 some were issued @ $6.48. On Oct. 30 some were issued at $11.21. And now retail can buy it at $16. Oh, we should feel so entitled! My opinion especially in this market is the valuation is nuts! But since it's the 1st issue of the year though they make it work at least temporarily.

  • More on Amazon bookstore plans  [View news story]
    Destroy as many brick & mortar retailers you can. Then go in & sign leases on the cheap. Ultimately when oligopolies exist raise prices.

  • Fed asks banks to test for negative rates  [View news story]
    How do you prepare for that? They want you to loan out money, but you need more in reserves. What's the point of being a bank some risk needs to be assumed.
