    Thanks, LT-

    Traders apparently don't see the good news here, simply focusing on the fact that it lost $0.17 from operations, more than the $0.13 loss a year ago.

    The loss to stockholders, however DROPPED to $.18 from $.24 Y/Y a significant positive.

    Opportunity to add a bit to my position while it is down almost 9%, IMHO.

    >HTL-

    "...convert some shares.."

    Sounds right to me, HTL. I've been doing a lot of that.

    I see really flaky action in these markets, like some are making out of the ordinary trades to put a burr under the saddle of us common folk.

    I posted a link further down that is indeed thought provoking on the lack of volume.

    Conclusions? Draw your own.

    Re: (OTCQB:AXIH)

    Looks funny to me. Right out of the box to $.58 on a couple of trades then basically nothing.

    Pump & Dump?

    Medscape provides me with some pretty useful info on diseases, epidemics and treatment. You all may find this piece comparing Ebola to other horrors of interest.

    >OG-

    Re:(NYSE:NRZ)

    Although I dropped out of NRZ last week I still follow it.

    My thinking is that the reverse split would make the stock more attractive to the big boys as it is quite common for them to have a minimum $10 pps before it will be considered. I can think of no other reason for the action.

    Strange about the div announcement with no date. Possibly waiting for a done deal to close with a short time span?

    >Maya- Thanks!

    You are correct of course.

    I just look at the risk vs Reward potential and find a lot of weight on the Risk side- Reward side limited.

    Read an article a couple of days ago that said you could pick any 20 year time span in market history and stocks will have rewarded the buy and hold fan.

    Those of us with less of a horizon may choose to step back for a little while as the flak gets done flying.

    Right now I'm getting 4.5 to 6.5 sitting on the sidelines, PUT and CALL strategies excepted.

    >MJ-

    Re:(NYSE:NRG) I see good strategy there-

    Check out (NYSE:WEC) Sold it last week but it has been a good provider most of the time.

    Interesting views on Fidelity/EVA Dimensions

    To me it is boiled down to a risk reward decision- How much more will stocks go up vs how far can they go down?

    None of us know the answer to those questions but methinks down provides a lot less resistance with the data we look at today.

    >MJ- Thanks-

    Re:(WMA) Looks like revenues is the ONLY thing they missed! Pretty impressive.

    I was talking to a major infrastructure contractor that does water treatment plants, sewage disposal, etc.. using a lot of Mueller products.

    Re: the lead issue, Mueller told him that they would cease making products that use any lead at all. They are/have switched to brass as a substitute. As to 10X the cost of materials they will just pass it on to the purchaser.
