    Except those other products are fine in moderation. Moderate smoking can still kill you.

    Marijuana has medicinal uses despite the FDA's schedule I designation.

    What uses does Tobacco have besides getting you hooked and giving you cancer and emphysema?

    Liberals want to pay for everyone's healthcare, even smokers (even if they cost way more than the population)

    Do you any government would allow nice branding and packaging on other carcinogenic chemicals? It's become a personal and societal health risk. Australia is reacting in one way. As another example, New York State has raised cig taxes to a ridiculous level ($11 in taxes along I think in NYC), as there are studies that show that high taxes do curb smoking. Real shame?

    I don't see the line in the sand moving to, for example, alcohol because there are clearly studies that suggest some health benefits with mild consumption. Mild cigarette usage can still give you cancer and emphysema and affect the health of people and children around you.

    Yeah, it's terrible to notify people of a dangerous product to personal and societal health

    Small comfort. Investors in stocks look at the future, not the present. Seems like we are looking at sub $50 oil for awhile. Not ideal for deep water drillers

    Yup. It used to be funny to watch RIG bulls point to "billions and billions of dollars in work backlog" as the "moat" of the company.

    Great article.

    My favorite larger caps are SBUX, V, NA, DIS, and NKE. Have been very happy with all of them for years now

    "Gold below $1000 = global recession."

    What did gold do during the housing bubble?

    Yup.

    Seriously, Duh??

    Where was Goldman a few months ago with DIS in double digits while I was buying with both hands?

    Unless it's a really quality stock. I still remember trimming my position in V in 2011 at $22 (split adjusted). NKE V DIS MA, these rarely have offered a good correction to people who keep waiting.
