  • Wal-Mart (WMT) says it will not open three planned stores in the Washington D.C area if a bill passes raising the minimum wage to $12.50/hour for retailers "with sales over $1B and retail spaces of 75K square feet or more." The company's stance is "immensely discouraging," Mayor Vincent Gray says. [View news story]
    Why not make the hourly wage $20 an hour,no make it $30 an hour.Hats off to Walmart. This is one of the reasons socialism never works.The liberals just don't get it.

  • AIG, A Surprising Investment Opportunity [View article]
    Once again nobody commented on the fact that in the third quarter the top hedge funds bought more AIG than any other stock .Has anyone examined the record of the top hedge funds in the last 15 years. I will tell you it is fantastic. Remember they have the best contacts,traders, and analyst.

  • Bruce Berkowitz Expects To Make 4 Times His Money On His Core Holdings [View article]
    As to the comment "what if you can't trust book value" I also am concerned about that. However, when I examined the 13f reports for the third quarter.and saw the top hedge funds for the last 20 years buy enormous amount of shares in AIG I bought a substantial number of shares . Why , because they have the best analyst, traders and contacts. That is the reason they did so well the last 20 years.It certainly wasn't luck.

    Excellent tongue and cheek comment. Too many investors judge a company on the basis of the past rather than the present and the future.

  • Can Chipotle Continue Its Momentum? [View article]
    If and when the market senses that Shophouse is going to be successful, the stock will go much higher.In addition, the market is watching whether international expansion will be successful. Initial results are positive re Shophouse.I think that if I go to sleep for 5 years and wake up I will be pleasantly surprised with the price of the stock.I'm taking a chance by going to sleep since I'm 79 years old.

  • JPMorgan (JPM) has "transitioned from model citizen to problem child" in the eyes of Washington, the NY Times says. The latest evidence of the shift is a government document (reviewed by the Times) which reportedly says the firm dreamed up "manipulative schemes" in order to wring profits from "money-losing power plants." The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission also says Blythe Masters (mother of the synthetic CDO) "falsely denied under oath her awareness of" certain activities allegedly undertaken by a group of Houston energy traders. It isn't clear whether actions will be taken against JPM, which will have a chance to respond to the allegations. [View news story]
    We should withhold judgment until JPM responds to the charges.

  • Swisher Hygiene: Very Significant Upside Potential As A Turnaround [View article]
    When an author writes an article,he should expect to answer questions based on the article.When people spend time reading the article it is common courtesy to answer questions that are appropriate. Since you refuse to do it, I will never read another article written by you.
