  • The Pathetic 'Talk Therapy' Of Janet Yellen [View article]
    I thought that the screwing would begin several years ago. My thinking that has not been profitable for me.

    Boy. You must do a lot of home brewing.

  • Apple iOS Versus Android: Is This The Turn Of The Tide? [View article]
    I already have a reliable, quality phone and it is not an Iphone. Many of us prioritize money over having what is advertised as the latest and greatest. That does not mean, however, that I don't think Apple is not worth holding for now.

    What if money had been much more tight over the last several years? Would things be better than they are now? I agree that it has been shown that an over reliance on monetary policy cannot solve the problems of the main street economy. I agree that mainly the rich have benefited. But many of the not so rich have benefited as well as they have been able to build up their net worth for retirement. It is also true that the stock marketeers have become very dependent upon FED policy to the point where even a fairly small increase of the interest rate could bring it all down. I am not sure,however, that it makes much difference whether or not it would cause that much damage if the easy money policy were continued.

    The elephant in the room is fiscal policy. If there had been a more vigorous fiscal policy, then much of this extreme monetarism would not have been considered necessary. Yes we have learned that just because money is easy doesn't necessarily mean it will be used to productive purposes. You point out that wages are determined in an international market. Well, that is part of the problem isn't it. Maybe a little more inflation would be useful but no one seems to know how to make that happen with fiscal policy.

    Although Apple gained some share, the overwhelming majority of phones are Android. I am long Apple but still don't see Android going away.

  • Connecting The Dots: Wall Street Double-Talk And Double Opportunity Of Falling Oil Price [View article]
    Less rigs just means there will be less drilling. But production can go on and even increase based upon the wells already in operation. Eventually, production will go down because of depletion. The problem, however, is how to project future production. Experts disagree.

    The possible fact that these wells produce for ten years or more does not tell us when production will decline. Continue to retire rigs and eventually it will happen. The debate is when it will happen. Some think it will happen as early as this summer. Frankly, I don't think anyone is sure.

    Frankly, I don't think that oil companies would be sacrificing billions of dollars in profits, foreclosed loans, and thousands of jobs so they can mess with Putin. If you specific, documented evidence otherwise, please provide. Also, I don't think that ruining Iran's economy is a very smart way to have them cease their nuclear program.

    Despite the fact that we are currently in a glut, this does not change the fact that oil is a finite resource. If other countries are willing to deplete their resource for our benefit, I say we drain them first.

    I have read that one reason that new refineries are not being built is that they have not been considered profitable. What part environmentalists play in this I don't know. But who would want a refinery in their backyard?

    I don't know if we are going to have another leg down in price but it should be kept in mind that fracked wells have a very rapid decline in production versus conventional wells. How long low prices will be in effect would depend partly on the mix of the age of the wells already drilled. Newer wells experience a more rapid decline because the most rapid declines are experienced in the first few years.

    Good question considering that we are running out of storage capacity. I am assuming it has to do with supply dislocation.

    Have been holding TBT for the last few weeks. Plus TMV. But isn't the latest news from the FED dovish?

  • Apple's Electric Vehicle Opportunity [View article]
    I would rather see Apple figure out a way to make us less dependent on the auto. One line of thought is that the ubiquity of smart phones and social networks make the auto a less centric part of our lives.
