  • Tesla: Be Ready For A Massive Crash [View article]
    Guys, there will be a "Massive" crash in TSLA. Ashraf Eassa says so. It might take a month, it may take a year, or it may take 10 years, but TSLA will have a 10% drop at some point and Ashraf will be here saying I told you so. Doesn't matter if it means the stock falling form 300 to 270. He has foreshadowed it.

  • New Homes Sales For July Plunge: Short Every Homebuilder Rally [View article]
    Homebuilders going bankrupt? I don't think so.

    Can't agree with this article, even though I agree with stagnant home sales and prices for the next few months.

  • Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio: Raising Cash To Increase Income [View article]
    Selling puts - depends on the broker and your allowed level, but I only have to reserve 10% or so of the price of 100 shares of a stock when selling a put (most volatile ones sometimes require 20% or more). Not 100% cash in my portfolio... that would take way too much opportunity cost. This allows leverage... which can be very good or very bad. Your mileage may vary.

  • Philip Morris Hits 4% Yield Before Dividend Raise [View article]
    That's because they're behind on the development curve. As they grow, become more educated and have more money, they realize that stuff is actually not good for you.

    I believe all countries will eventually experience the health awareness and smoking decline… obviously it may take a while for it to happen but I won't be caught playing the game when this makes a significant impact.

  • Philip Morris Hits 4% Yield Before Dividend Raise [View article]
    They're not that good, or so I've read.

    I do, however, believe that demand for cigarettes will slowly decrease worldwide.

    VXX is never attractive unless you know what you're doing and plan to be in it for a short time, can watch it like a hawk and get out at the right time.

    Given the FOMC "taper" meeting, I am guessing VIX will be "high" (16-18).

  • More Myth-Making About The Economy [View article]
    "The triggers to upsetting the wave remain the classic trio of Fed tightening, recession, credit market meltdown. I happen to think that we are flirting with all three of them"

    Really? I would only agree with Fed tightening; recession is farther away now than at anytime since 2008-2009, and credit markets are much more robust and better capitalized than leading to the previous recession.

    Take profits? I wonder who has profits at this point (unless you bought many years ago or bought the low yesterday).
