  • Alpha Found: Capstead Mortgage, The 'Perfect' Security [View article]
    MP quote: "CMO is a variable rate agency only security"

    Does "only" mean 100%?

    Are you sure about this?

    Not even 1% of other kinds of mortgaged in their portfolio?

  • Affymax Likely Worthless: Omontys Kills At Least 9x More People Than Epogen [View article]
    AE proves one thing. Only the shorts that got in on top will make any money if this flies, and that will be a pittance. Absolutely no reason to start a short position here and now. It's always the "follower" short newbies that make peanuts or get squashed. lol

    Cudda made a bundle shorting, be careful what ya promote, aye BJ? The fact that ya started this article w/latest rally, not the one starting in Mar 2009, shows short-term vision. -Things always take longer than ya think. See ya in 2023 if LPR's still in business.

  • Own Many Stocks With Very Few Problems [View article]
    Bob,

    Great analogy and wonderful comments.

    Breath easy, sounds like the perfect Gone Fishin' Stock Portfolio but I'm 72 so it would represent a max of 35% of my holdings w/ up to 60% in short/ intermediate term Bond Funds/ ETFs and around 5% in Money Market.

    Thanks a million, Ernest

  • Recent Questcor Short Squeeze Confirmed, Continuation Possible [View article]
    Never 2nd guess the Short Interest, they rode it all the way up from the $30s last year steadily increasing right up to the $58.91 precipice and drop to $17.25.

    Watch the fluctuating daily short Interest. Simmered down slightly as the rally moved up, now back full blast again.

    One product? Yes 1 product which originally served 1 indication that has grown to service 3 indications out of 19 indication leaving 16 indications to grow into! Oh, excuse me, # 4 indication has started to grow and is on its way to be what may be their greatest blockbuster indication of all, still leaving 15 indications to grow!

    Questcor zoomed right through the 2008 recession/ market correction, what make you think the broader market's gonna stop it now?
