  • Cleveland Cliffs vs. Harbinger: Will the Hedgies Win?  [View article]
    The current situation fully reflects the ongoing problem facing management ,stockholders and the regulatory bodies.Hedge Funds have one objective,maximize profits.In my opinion they have advantages which the average investor does not possess-huge amounts of capital-which can be used to achieve their objectives.Naked short selling is just one of the tools in their arsenal,they also trade on multiple markets for opacity.Hedge Funds should be subjected to the same rules as retail customers and be required to trade strictly during trading hours of the U.S.markets.In addition,if their holdings exceed 9% a notice of their intentions should be made public prior to execution.

  • The SEC's Campaign Against Short Sellers  [View article]
    Naked short selling should be banned or require more transparency.The idea that unlimited funds can be used to drive the markets is unethical.Short sellers of greater than a small percentage of the float should be required to report their intentions prior to taking action.Naked short selling does not help the small investor.

  • Crude Reality: Big Oil's Purposely Restricting Supply  [View article]
    Tony must have smoked before writing this piece of crap.I got into the oil business in 1962 when it was a low profit industry.The short sighted greenies prompted the plugging of more than 300,000 stripper wells which today would have added about amillion barrels of production per day.Do the math and you can see that our outflow of dollars woild have been reduced by $125,000,000. per day.Consider the number of individyuals coulh have enjoyed liveable wages.Drill,drill,dril... should be the slogan for the next decade,increase employment,decrease welfare,states could enjoy a cash cow in the form of royalties,taxes could come down if the politicos stop spending and we would really have the American Dream.Unfortunately some people don't want that because the public will not be living on handouts in the form of silly rebates.Let's wise up and throw the present bums out with term limits and get real representation.

  • Massey Energy Posts Big Number But Big Charge Too  [View article]
    I really hate to admit it but Hedge Funds,rational or irrational still hold sway.They can trade on any Market and 24 hours a day.Information overload and analysts set things topsy turvy;ie.miss the analysts' estimates by one cent and the stock caves.Tere are too many conflicts of interest on the street.Until banks will be banks and investment bankers limit themselves to underwritings,pandemon... will reign.
