  • Smith & Wesson Earnings Will Surprise [View article]
    SWHC also burned through about $25mil on buybacks after the Newtown sell-off... They approved a $15m and a few weeks later, said they had used it and were approving an additional $10m. That reduction in share count will influence EPS positively.

  • Fall Down Friday: Cliff Diving Special [View article]
    They weren't even able to pass one when they had both houses during O's first two years... Probably because they were too busy crafting the healthcare bill they crammed through. After all, you gotta pass it to know what's in it.

    So the same must be true of Reid's inability to pass a budget... for YEARS.

  • House Republicans won't bring their "Plan B" tax-cut proposal to a vote tonight, as Speaker John Boehner says he doesn't have the votes; the House will recess until after Christmas. DJIA futures slip 0.2%. Boehner: "Now it is up to the president to work with Senator Reid on legislation to avert the fiscal cliff." Updated: S&P 500 e-Mini futures dive, limit down. [View news story]
    Off the top of your head, who was Speaker during the Great Depression? Ok, now who was President? To all claiming this is bad for GOP, take a look at history. It's always the POTUS who people talk about and remember. Obama is the guy behind the wheel... and history will remember it as such.

  • "Let the fiscal cliff happen and reduce the deficit very substantially as a consequence," quips GOP advisor Bruce Bartlett. The combination of spending cuts and tax hikes will eventually strengthen the economy. Conversely, he says, the Republicans refusal to raise taxes will actually hurt the economy. Baby boomers are due to retire in droves over the next few decades, and government spending has to rise. If we don't raise taxes we'll just have to borrow more from abroad, thereby increasing interest payments on the debt. (video[View news story]
    Shocker... crackheads want more crack.

  • Why do investors continue to pour money into EWJ and expose themselves to currency risk when the DBJP offers the same Japanese stock exposure, but hedged against the yen? Another of Dennis Hudachek's 10 Overlooked ETFs is the INDA, tracking the same Indian index as the INP, but with lower expenses. And don't forget IAU, basically the same exposure as GLD, but at 15 bps cheaper per year. [View news story]
    Terrible liquidity in those less popular funds... DBJP 450 on the volume today... lol.

  • Socialism And Debasement Of Currency [View article]
    You should read prior posts then... my response was a direct reply to jerrydd's "...YOU are paying for a massive military..."

    We could play semantics, but the simple point is we spend too much money. Entitlement spending, military spending, "investments," aid to hostile nations... We can't afford it.

    Where did I say "massive is good no matter the cost"? Go ahead, find it... I'll wait............No luck? Okay, where did I imply it? I'll wait again.............

    You're simply saying something untrue. Never did I say anything even remotely close to "no matter the cost," I said it's the government's primary role. Furthermore, I went on to clarify that indeed, improvements in efficiency could be made (in other words, spend less where appropriate).

    I am glad, however, that we have confirmed that massive has no connection to quality. That sums up the federal government quite well.

  • Has Paul Krugman Gone Too Far This Time? [View article]
    I said nothing about climate change, alternative energy, or oil consumption. Of course, I expect nothing less of leftist loons that always try to use fear and guilt as a means to an end.

    Wow... Huge leap of faith there, Ted. When has the government EVER done anything with any resemblance of efficiency?

    You imply that our military is not quality or competent. I assume them to be both. Yes, there is wasteful spending and yes, they could improve efficiency. But to suggest they're not of quality and are incompetent is off the mark.

    I don't mind paying for a massive military. If you want peace, prepare for war. And it's the government's primary job, per our Constitution (if that even matters anymore...). As for the "corporate welfare" mantra, funny how the Solyndra's are omitted from the argument. It's always big oil (which we all actually need and use daily), big pharma (which will benefit nicely from Obama forcing people in to the pool), or some other industry that doesn't appease the left. Blaming everyone but the guy in charge does absolutely nothing in solving the US's woes.

    You sound like complete morons blaming everyone but yourselves, who happen to be in charge. "Bush's fault" won't cut it these next four years. The left owns it (the economy and its problems, the debt, the wars, the scandals, etc) now. Good luck defying history and all things rational in your quest to implement your will upon those too stupid to realize it or too weak to resist it. When creditors come knocking and the farce comes to an abrupt halt, I'll be the guy saying "I told you so."
