  • Mark My Words, These Stocks Will Double In 2012 [View article]
    I can't tolerate authors like these....they are too haughty see their past mistakes. They make such outlandish predictions, and only have delusions to prove it. With markets these days subordinated by quantitative methods, all at the same time, market participants expunge themselves... the author should be prepared to relinquish it's capital. Be humble.....

  • Iran plans to launch missiles and torpedoes as part of its ongoing naval exercise in the Persian Gulf, as the country's oil minister says crude prices will break $200 if sanctions are imposed on Iran's oil exports. (previously)  [View news story]
    I agree with Tack. Iran should just calm down and stop making useless threats.

  • "Another nutty professor mixing untested cocktails in the Eccles building," says Jefferies' David Zevros, believing the Senate may have good cause to reject the President's nominee to the Fed, Jeremy Stein. Zevros says Stein's idea of curtailing leverage by having the Fed set repo haircuts for ALL asset classes would do nothing to cull leverage, but would send the financial services industry overseas.  [View news story]
    I respect your opinion. But I think you are exaggerating a bit.

  • With trading desks barely staffed, someone has decided to run some stops in the currency market. The greenback takes a plunge over the past couple of hours against nearly every major currency, but particularly vs. the yen, the aussie, and the kiwi. The yen has now regained nearly all the ground lost when Japan intervened in late October to weaken it.  [View news story]

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    BAC and all the respective banks are down, because the remaining investors that exist have seen the ways. They have seen how banks are run for executives and not for the owners(shareholders). For example: GS spends half their revenues on their executives. And what they give to the shareholders? A 35 cent dividend.

    I wish Seeking Alpha, and those who read the wall street breakfast news a happy new year. Time is too valuable, enjoy it with family.

    ...."would send the financial services industry overseas".

    We need to regulate more the financial markets. They are still running amok. We cannot be held hostage by inane arguments like the one I quoted above.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Koshien kid, isn't only the times. It is the fabric itself of our American society. We have lost confidence on ourselves to do the right thing for the future of this country. We see people with productive capacity that doesn't want to work. We see bank oligarchs who think they are doing God's work. We see a society that depends too much in a government that fleeces them each day of their lives.

    But rest assured, Americans are docile. The banking oligarchs learned from Rome. Rome entertained and distracted the people with the colosseum. In our modern society we are distracted by the media, specially the television.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Today we see the HFT algorithms playing ping-pong with all risk assets in such a perfect coordination....and Wall Street wants the average guy to invest more of their hard earned money in to this casino.

    Without forgetting about the dark liquidity pools which trades occur unregulated. Wall Street sometimes remind me of a pack of hyenas looking at ways on how to devour their prey more easily....

  • MC poll: What are your predictions for 2012? Which way will stocks go? What about oil and gold? What will happen with the eurozone crisis, or U.S. unemployment? Any under-the-radar stocks or ETFs worth keeping an eye on?  [View news story]
    I don't know how the bipolar maniacal market is going to react next year.

    But I am preparing for the demographic changes occurring, americans getting older, birth rates dropping.....and I would look to profit from it.

  • Coming Week Market Movers: 6 Reasons 2011 Could End With A Bang [View article]
    The markets would rally next week. Low volume and a festive mood creates perfect scenario for a big rally.

    Another mutual fund.....that has worked for the last 10 years, right??


    Wall Street and Governments like people who are not auto sufficient. They can prey on your ignorance and lack of independence to reach your goals. They sell you a concept, that you cannot fend for yourself in the Wall Street Casino, that you need a manager. They tell you they know all.....


    But the truth makes us free, and the truth is mutual funds goal is to make money for the manager, not the buyer. Mutual funds are like herd and pile on crappy momo stocks, or sometimes in the stable big companies which returns are below the inflation rate in the last 10 years.....

    If you really want to make money in the casino, do it yourself...

  • It's official (at least according to Zero Hedge): The U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio now exceeds 100%. U.S. debt net of all settlements for already completed bond auctions today surpassed the latest annualized GDP figures, based on ZH's numbers.  [View news story]
    The biggest problem isn't the current deficit per se. It is mostly because of the economic malaise. But the demographic trends and thus the unfunded liabilities....we need to raise taxes and cut spending before the changes are too hard to make or drastic for the people.

    We have the best opportunity right now. Low yields can provide us with capital to invest in new infrastructure, technological advances, higher education and favorable tax structure to small businesses.

  • The sins of Fannie and Freddie were bad enough: inadequate capital, accounting fraud, essentially writing most laws that affected them. But Joe Nocera says the one thing they didn't do was lead the private sector off the cliff with their affordable housing mandates and massive subprime holdings. "The reality is that Fannie and Freddie followed the private sector off the cliff instead of the other way around."  [View news story]
    Ah, but what about Congress? Yes, the same guys who pushed and increased pressure on them to lower standards all for the sake of "the dream". What about the president? Bush in 2003 was saying "lower standards is good" for the people.....

    The congress utilized moral suasion to accomplish their goals. ....buying votes. if
    you give people the opportunity to be homeowners you win their approvals. Especially minorities groups, and poor people.

    But rest assured, the legislators are going to make distractions and enforce these public hearings aka clown shows....

    Of course the banking oligarchs all started this with their search for more short term profits....their greed is disgusting, immoral and insatiable.

    Today we see the symptoms of the bipolar maniacal markets controlled by wall street algorithms. Yesterday was despair on the markets, today is euphoria. And still Wall Street wants the common man to participate in this madness. The casino is running amok.....
