    "If these guys resist and bemoan poor credit quality, they will underperform their peers ... In the long run this is the road to the next crisis and ruination.”

    My nominee for the non sequitur of the year ...

  • Doom & Gloom Sells [View article]
    I share your sense that it is important to look objectively at reasons for encouragement and optimism in investing while also acknowledging that U.S. and other economies perform less well than they could. Television and radio programs and simplistic media reporting pander with streams of second-guessing and contempt for government figures, programs, initiatives, and future prospects. On Seeking Alpha, the strongest attacks typically come without constructive criticism or explanation and support for programs or stances that would be superior to those that are criticized. Contempt is easy and obscures, I think, one's capacity to assess how things really are.

  • Here's Why I'm Investing In The United Arab Emirates And Why You Should Too [View article]
    Thanks for an interesting and very helpfully detailed article that added a lot to my appreciation for the area's investment potential. Although I lived in Egypt and have traveled in the Emirates, it only recently struck me that investing in the region made sense. I have already bought shares in GULF, and your article reinforces my view that it was a good choice. I appreciate the research and work that you put into this.

  • Apple And Skyworks Are Both Heading Skyward [View article]
    I suspect that there are other implications, as well, for interconnectedness. One could involve wearables with alarm sensors that signal medical problems/issues to alert other(s) in the family, for instance, if someone suffers a sudden drop in blood pressure, is running a fever, or becomes unconscious. The sky's the limit ...

  • Digesting WWDC: Cloudy [View article]
    Thanks for a very interesting and well-written posting that I found helpful in understanding and appreciating Apple's developing technical structure and its stance vis a vis android and Google. I especially appreciated your objectivity and your clarity in expressing some (to me) complex functions and parallels.

  • The Nifty Fifty Market [View article]
    I appreciate the part of the article that deals with the disparity in returns between small caps and the "nifty fifty." You have not made a case, though, to support your statements "The larger, institutional players are systematically rotating out of illiquid small caps names and hiding in names with the highest liquidity. They are, at the very least, anticipating a more difficult market environment to come, and likely something more severe."

  • Texas Jury's Anti-Fracking Verdict Could Create Problems For Oil And Gas Producers [View article]
    The key to this issue is credible and persuasive evidence tying the illnesses to the fracking process. It is not clear from the article what was alleged and what influenced the jury to find for the complainants. If there are provable links between the Texas fracking and specific toxicity and injury, then the whole industry -- wherever located -- using that process could be at risk.

    Thanks for the interesting posting. I suspect that the impact of iBeacons will be more diverse and valuable than people currently estimate.

  • At The Right Price, Apple, Amazon, And Google All Offer Strong Long-Term Value For Investors [View article]
    The article makes a large number of guesses which it magically transforms into assumptions before tabulating them against each other as though they were data and attempting to draw investing conclusions. Wow! What speculation can produce!

    My favorite part is where you cite Amazon's current P/E as 485 times earnings and then give it a P/E of 35. What fun you're having!

  • India - The Week After The Party [View article]
    Thank you for a very helpful social, political, and economic overview. What is your view of Modi's administration's likelihood of making progress in dislodging corruption as it works to "reignite the economic engine"?
