  • On QE3: Buy Oil And Gas, Sell Obama Re-election Odds [View article]
    Still to this day I cannot believe how many ignorant people there are who think Obama is an honest person. This guy is a shady as the day is long. How else does a person with no background except politics become worth $10 million? Yeah, he's a 1% alright. This guy has lied to your faces and your still follow him, what a joke you young people are. People who took out mortgages that they couldn't afford along with the "FED" trying to control our economy have screwed us up. Now losers get all the benefits of Obama's great programs by not paying their mortgages and living rent free. The Democrats have only one reason for being, POWER, their addictive handouts have kept one race particularly held down by handouts. The media is complicit in everything to control the sheep. I suggest you all read a little book by Miguel Ruiz entitled, " The Four Agreements" and see why you all are missing the point. P. S., maybe you should take a good look at Europe, that is where we are headed unless we change course. Why is the obvious so hard to grasp?

  • Not Time To Get Nervous (Yet) [View article]
    I'll tell you why this rally is not real:
    1. Their has been no impressive volume
    2. leading economic indicators are negative
    3. Irrational views has distorted "value", this can be seen in such stocks as CRM,AMZN and LNKD.
    4. QE will not save what is truely broken.

    Good Luck to all and I remain hedged in an uncertain environment.

  • Michigan Governor Rick Snyder declared Detroit to be in a state of emergency on Friday and said he would appoint an outside manager to help turn around its dire finances, which include $14B in long-term liabilities. City officials have ten days to persuade Snyder to change his mind. Should he uphold his decision, it would be the latest step in attempts to prevent Detroit filing what would be the biggest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. [View news story]
    1. Big unions
    2. Democtaric governance
    3. Bastion of Liberalism

  • 2 Overvalued Pseudo-Pharmaceuticals Revisited [View article]
    Yes, and when revenues are close to $20 million this year and the results from peer review from the thyroid study come out( conveniently failed to mention) I look forward to you staying short and trying to rebut reality once again.

  • Why low volume actually is bullish, according to Ryan Detrick: Total-dollar volume is higher now than in the 2003-07 bull market, so how can bears say lower share volume is bearish? "As long as volume stays low and bears use it as ammunition for lower prices, just smile and nod your head, knowing this isn't true." [View news story]
    This guy is nuts. All macro economic signms are pointing down. The BOTS are moving the market based on technicals, nothing else. Wake up. Retail sales figures are good compared to what?, real poor numbers, come now...

  • There's No Longer A Bernanke Put [View article]
    The wonderful Community Reinvestment Act was a Clinton mandate along with FNM and FRE. Both run by corrupt Democrats. FNM was cooking the books for quite some time with Franklin Raines at the helm, hiding the obvious I presume, you remember that, don't you? Also the Democrats controlled Congress from 2007 on. Get your facts straight.

  • What Bernanke Couldn't Quite Say [View article]
    so I know your a Democrat, maybe a socialist, and what right do you or anyone, especially the government, has to say a group is not paying enough taxes? The real problem, like the rest of the world is experiencing is that there is too much goverment spending and abuse, fraud, waste. Tell me one program the American government has run that wasn't filled with scandals and is or will be broke in the near future. Look at Europe, look at Japan, look at their tax rates. You really have no clue what you are spewing from your blowhole do you? A good start would be a consumption tax acroos the board and taking money away from the crooks in DC that are so easily bought off.

  • San Bernardino has voted to become the third California city to file for bankruptcy in the last month, after officials reported the city faced an imminent financial crisis. San Bernardino hopes to restructure its finances while in Ch. 9 protection, but a concerned muni bond market may have other plans. (also: Stockton and Mammoth Lakes)  [View news story]
    It is beginning. California is broke, 19 billion. Illinois, New York, New Jersey, all the big social democratic states are in the worse shape and not getting better. The country is being ruined by lazy people who are voting for handouts and our present government loves that. We better make a change in November or we are in deep crap. The Fed or ECB, nor China can do anhything to stop the crisis that lies ahead. Keynesianism is dead.

  • Market Valuation Overview: Not Cheap By A Long Shot [View article]
    The answer is YES, it was called a bubble. And what stocks are trading at that low multiple in NASDAQ? Maybe AAPL and MSFT, not much else. The cliff is coming, prepare. If the market is waiting for the Federal Reserve or any other governmental agency to rescue it, you need to worry. The easy money policy will have dire consequences in the near term, 2013-2015.

  • After a 72% Y/Y rise in the XHB, the housing recovery rates the cover at Barron's. "We're in the early stages," says Lennar (LEN) President Rick Beckwith. The industry could triple in size to 1.8M housing starts in the next 3-4 years, says Ivy Zelman, who thinks Lennar could earn $5.30/share in FY15 vs. $0.48 last year. A more speculative play is Beazer (BZH), which isn't yet profitable, but has eased short-term liquidity fears with recent capital raises. [View news story]
    That is a dream number Zelman is imaging, with the current employment reports don't look for more than 5% GROWTH IN STARTS FOR THE NEXT TWO YEARS. Maybe when Romney is in office we can see 1 million units a year. Remember, at the height we had 2 million units, with absolutely no credit standards and many investors. That is all gone now.

  • What Bernanke Couldn't Quite Say [View article]
    A simple answer to your ranting is that we DO NOT HAVE A TAX PROBLEM!, IT IS A SPENDING PROBLEM that has gotten us in this mess. Look at the unions, federal, state, local and the perks that are given out. The government is to big, cannot manage itself and is run by special interests. How can anyone run something efficiently if all they care about is their own well being? These politicians are the most despicable people on the planet. The government cannot solve social issues, they use that as a tool to extort more and more monies out of the economy in the name of goodwill. They do not care about anyone or anything except their own livelihood and pocket. Our Federal government was implemented by George Washington and Hamilton because they saw a poor army that could not get the funds it needed from states to function properly. I'm sure they are turning in their graves now to see how we have become as corrupt as the European models that we were so fond of long ago. Read 1776 or John Adams, great books.

  • A press conference is underway following a meeting of Merkel, Hollande, Monti, and Rajoy: Direct bailout funding of banks violates treaties, says Merkel. Sounds like a lot was accomplished.  [View news story]
    Why should the solvent countries be on the hook of the unsolvent ones if they do not want to fix their systems of too much government spending? I laugh when I hear that austerity isn't right at this time. Meanwhile the growth of spending over the past 5-7 years has increased an average of 14% for most European countries. When we will learn that it always comes back to the largess of social programs that kills the economies. THEY DO NOT WORK!

    Agreed, the stocks are way ahead of themselves, TOL 2X book?, 50X earnings, and that is the darling of the street. BBRO, we still have about 1.67 million hidden inventory to work through, although the investors have done a good job so far. Wish I bought more properties in Florida.

  • Star Scientific And TherapeuticsMD: 2 Overvalued Pseudo-Pharmaceuticals [View article]
    Your knowledge of the effects of RCP-006 show how wrong you are about this company. Sky high loan rates are usually a sign of a very high short, and naked short position. It has nothing to do with fundamentals of the company. Obviously you are not aware of the international patent that was filed for Anatabloc in early 2011 and I will side with the science that will be proven again by John Hopkins over your OPINION based on your position. Sales will also exceed 20 million in 2013, take that to the bank.

  • Are Central Banks Financing Governments By Printing Money? [View article]
    The contibutor is obviously delusional and thinks the government can help fix what they already broke by doing more of the same. When did that ever work? We have a spending problem in all areas of gov't, local, state, and federal.That along with partisan regulations is killing the economy. Humans buy things they need and buy luxuries with extra money they save. Common sense is not taught in school fellas. Time to wake up and take your medicine.
