  • Ethanol stocks outperform as EPA unveils mandate [View news story]
    blue 22

    The U.S. imported about 490 million gallons of Brazilian ethanol in 2012. That less than 12 million barrels a year. Half of that was imported by California however no one mentions the scam that US sent Nebraska ethanol back to Brazil to play the Carbon numbers. We are not the principal customer of Brazil. As to the children being sent north is an urban myth because the children crossing our border speak Spanish. If they were from Brazil they would speak Portuguese.

  • BofA and Goldman are more than rising rate stories [View news story]
    gwynfryn

    NO, hand written was only 10% of the problem. The main problems were
    1]not giving the proper name on the account without an account number. Using the SA editor as an example We could have two clients Stephen Alpher and Steven Alphen and the letter was from S Alpher.
    2] Very poor grammar so I was hard to decipher what the customer wanted. Example I am due money from X corporation. Now X corp was like BANK of AMERICA had common stock, several preferred issues and a dozen bond issues. This was also before computers so someone had to go through bookkeeping sheets.

  • JPMorgan Lays Off 5,000 Employees: Investors Should Lay Aside Their Shares [View article]
    I have two problems with the article.
    1] Since 1980 all bank reduce their staffs by 2-4% annually because of new technology.
    2] With rates seeming to go up in the near future I would not take any money off the table

    If you also look at call volume a lot of bets are being made on a move over 70

    Over 50 years ago, during my summer vacation from high school, I was assigned to a unit at Chase to open mail within the corporate trust division and send it to the proper department. Now this division handled everything to do with securities
    so one assumed that those writing had at least some wealth. About 1 in 4 letters (25%) were put in the indecipherable pile for further research. Seeing that the educational standards have been declining over those 50 years. I would guess the indecipherable pile might be over 50% and take a long time to research to resolve the problem.

    Are you paying the full amount of the short or are you putting it on margin?

    ANTIQUARY

    LINE gets you a K1 which usually gives you a better deal than regular dividends but if in a retirement account could generate a UBT tax

    LNCO is a Corp but my understanding is the last few years it has come under the return of capital provision.

    Each of the two questions I asked were pertaining to your right to privacy under the 4 &5 amendment so for years those freedom were violated by people within the government . To be precise they took away the freedom of association you might remember that was one of the ideals Thomas Jefferson spoke of. You kept asking what freedom(s) means your knowledge of history needs improvement. You might also look up how they developed the idea of probable cause.

    I guess that was to tough
    Another question then.

    what should the penalty be when a government work collets your personal information without any real probable cause.

    great idea!
    give us the details of the shorts and any options you want to use as a hedge. Right at this moment I assume I will get assigned in august
    Plan B assuming the stock is above 10 and below 12 I would do a calendar rollout to jan 16.
    Plan C will be if the stock is under 10 around 8/15 I will unwind and cry
    C'est pour tenter de vivre un autre jour . and go get a cold beer.

    I await you post after the trade

    there is no mocking whether you get it right or wrong. The point is to describe the process you go through to make your decision.

    Think of a loss as a plane crash and you become the NTSB to look at all possible mistakes you could have made. If you can identify what went wrong, you put that on your try not to do that list.

    On my trading desk besides the three computers a have a number of pencils and a few white erasers for my calculations.
