  • Annaly: I Am Seeing More Reasons Not To Own This Stock Right Now [View article]
    With the "new normal" for the economy in the Obama era, rates will stay low. There is too much pressure from many directions that indicate rates can't go up unless there is some kind of radical change within the US economy.

  • Only 'Price Inflation' Will Put An End To The Insanity [View article]
    Good points. Bring back Regan's economic philosophy; it works so much better than the socialism that we are being pulled into with current resident of the White House.

  • 2 Dividend Aristocrats For Your Portfolio [View article]
    GPC is a very good company, but very richly priced. Just wish I had loaded up on some shares just after the financial meltdown a few years ago when shares were bargain priced.

  • Ford - Backing Up The Truck On The Clueless Downgrade [View article]
    The Ford haters just can't see the forest for the trees. It will always be a better company than GM, and will always build a better truck than GM or Toyota.

  • Is High-Yielding GM Eating Ford's Lunch? [View article]
    I'll tell you what GM eats for lunch......Hard earned savings of people who invested in their stocks and bonds in the past. In time, it will happen again. Given free will the company will self-destruct again. The question is.......will you be one of the unfortunates who have invested in their folly?

  • If The Economy Is Recovering, Why Is The Labor Force Participation Rate At A 36 Year Low? [View article]

    Good article. You make many valid points here. I believe that technology and the great recession are major factors in the weak job market. However, lack of optimism about our current government is probably a larger factor. The current resident of the White House invented Obamacare (a disaster for our economy), and is clearly not a fan of capitalism.

  • Consumers Are Not Buying, Where Is Their Money Hiding? [View article]
    I know people in their 50s and early 60s that have been looking for a full time job for more than 2 years, with no results. Twenty years ago, there would have been jobs for them. Now, some of these workers have taken on part time work or retired; this is just one example of our low labor participation situation.

  • Detroit In Chapter 9: Orr Plays Hardball [View article]
    Detroit is a fine example of what happens when their chosen political party has complete control of government year after year after year. Unfortunately this single party control (d) is becoming the rule in many of our cities lately.

  • The Damage Done [View article]
    The real damage is, and will be, done by our out of control spending, not by a overly hyped debt limit debate!

  • Kodak's CEO Prioritizes His Compensation Even Amid Bankruptcy [View article]
    Why would any financial institution give even a cent to Kodak as long as Perez is in charge. Perez has made nothing but bad decisions in past months. What was his last good decision? I don't know of any. Perez represents everything that is disfunctional about American businesses. He should write personal checks to creditors, bondholders and stockholders, not be rewarded for continuing to rip them off.

    When do the bondholders find out how badly we are going to get shafted?
