  • Wall Street Breakfast: Santander CFO Alvarez Named New CEO [View article]
    I chuckle every time I go to the grocers and see the price difference between "organically" and non-organically grown vegetables (lettuce, cabbage, beets, carrots, celery, etc). The price difference is significant and I wonder if people would continue to pay the difference if they actually saw the difference in how they were grown in the area I live in, on large scale, large production corporate farms?

    I'm all for buying healthy foods, and would pay the higher prices if the product I got in return even made me even "think" it was a healthier. However, having lived most of my life in a year-round farming community I've seen organic produce grown, and in "this" community the "organic" difference.., is laughable, and in my opinion one of the biggest scams that the, already overly subsidized, corporate-agribusinesses have going for them. In a nut shell, the only difference that I've observed between organic and non-organic is that organic grown fields are surrounded by a short (10-ince to 24-inch) mesh-wire fence and are posted with small signs which merely state that it is an organic field. I've observed both organic and non-organic fields receiving the very same chemical fertilizers, irrigation source, and harvested in the exact same ways. I've not seen organic fields being directly sprayed, or otherwise treated with pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides, BUT, I have seen, many times, non-organic fields being sprayed with defoliants and with pesticides, which were immediately adjacent to "organically" grown lettuce (we're big on lettuce here). Nor, have I seen any organics actually processed, once harvested, but doubt there is much, if any, difference in the way they are washed and packaged that could warrant the huge price increase. Anyway, the "organic" production process is sort-of a running joke in this community, just thought I share some of it.... now to go pick up my wife's "organically" grown turkey!

  • Profire Energy - A Classic Pump And Dump, Sell Before You Get Burned, Stock Worth $1.00 [View article]
    My common sense tells me to NOT invest in Profire, ever, period! The article makes me want to do even more due diligence in the stocks that I do buy, even though I stay completely away from penny stocks.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: European Stocks Rise As Draghi Readies QE [View article]
    Population dynamics and limited resources will prove to be very unkind to future generations living within our borders (whether legal or illegal). Unlimited immigration into any country will have detrimental affects that go way beyond any "political correctness" or warm and fuzzy feelings a particular political party might receive in the short term. Obama's pen does not consider future generations.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - I'm Sorry I Ever Heard Of Globalstar (11/14/14) [View article]
    Yuk! Cramer is such a creep! The truth comes out, it's always been just about himself and "his" money...., pretty much just the opposite of what he claims about himself and his precious "Charitable" Trust fund on Mad Money.

  • The One Sector You Must Own Today (Part II) [View article]
    Just what I was looking for, thanks for another informative article!

    Mexico was/is especially interesting, I was under the impression that their "contracting" effort was delayed significantly, but maybe not. I guess I better catch up on the process, as I think it could definitely be worthwhile to know who gets the major contracts early on in the process. Although most of the requirements have already been legislated, it will still be interesting to see how much the government (Mexico) and/or PEMEX will still muck the effort up by over regulating/limiting the foreign drilling contracts, to say nothing about the corruption. Hopefully their need for domestic oil and revenue keeps them somewhat open and straight in the effort.

  • Elon Musk Appears To Have Misled Investors On Tesla's Most Recent Conference Call [View article]
    Musk was merely incorporating the Obama/Gruber sales model; "feed 'em bs and hope they're all too stupid to figure out the truth"!

  • The One Sector You Must Own Today (Part I) [View article]
    I really enjoyed reading your article, I too like your succinct and informative style and look forward to Part 2. Energy is my favorite sector, especially when prices are low(er).

    I bought a few shares of NOV near their recent low and plan to buy a few more, after the OPEC decision. I'm also playing some industrial material types like EMN VMC, with good results. Although I totally missed the HAL/BHI thing, I definitely agree that more may be likely while prices are down, and who knows, maybe I have a couple that will have any thoughts on additional (potential) pairs?? Along those lines.., any favorites among the riskier, younger energy (fossil) companies that may grow into a future "giant"?? Maybe like a LNG or some other??
