  • The 'Twinkiezation' Of The American Economy And Spirit [View article]
    The players? Somehow I guess Private Equity, Unions and Employees were the only players? Isn't there something called "Management" in there? You know, the guys that make the decisions on how the company is run and developed. The guys that ran an 85 year old business with well recognized name brands into bankruptcy. You know the same guys that pay themselves so well. What happened to all the cash the company made in 85 years? I guess they didn't make any.
    I really take offense to your passing judgement on American workers and an 85 year old company in a dozen biased paragraphs. The workers would rather sit at home eating Twinkies (?) than working is a prime example of the disconnect between management and labor. Do you also think they're a bunch of lazy over paid employees, too. I'll bet you never set foot in one of their factories or spoke to one of their employees, have you! You might be surprised at how hard these people work and how many years they have given heart and soul to the "company".
    And of course you had to blame the government, too. It's their fault that working class America is so lazy. They're NOT lazy. Here's something to think about, maybe it's management thats over paid and lazy. OMG. Did I just say that?!?!

  • Plunging Into Cliffs Natural Resources' Share Price Dive [View article]
    This stock isn't down because of mismanagement or poor decisions. It's a great company thats down because of an economic downturn. If you think China is dead and never coming back then you won't want to buy this stock. If you think the US is doomed and people aren't going to be buying cars made of steel, then you won't want to buy this stock. If you just want to turn a quick buck and want to chase the next high flier you won't want this stock. If you've got a long term view and don't mind waiting and like a nice dividend while you wait you'll like this stock and might consider buying some here.

  • Lessons In Averaging Down And Rolling Your Options [View article]
    Very good thought provoking article. But, perhaps your impatience wasn't in letting your trades develop so much as it was in initiating (timing) your trade. You recognized your trade perfectly, but as with any trade hitting a top (or bottom) is impossible. Most if not all good trades don't need to be rushed, they just need to be verified by a trend reversal of some sort. I'd rather give up a few points than feel forced to average down. JMHO good luck
