  • Hot Plays Make EOG A Killer Buy Now [View article]
    Ouch, if the price of crude heads down, what happens to EOG? Is it's share price pegged to the price of crude? I don't follow Energy stocks but they seem to be fairly volatile.

  • Determining The Best Economic Outcome From The Presidential Race [View article]
    But I think the policies in the last four years made the situation worse. I am not trying to defend what happened before. Just saying what is happening now makes small business go bust. Might as well go work for the Government.

  • Determining The Best Economic Outcome From The Presidential Race [View article]
    As a business person, who has since 1995 created several jobs and endured a few up and down cycles, the last four have been very tough. I seem to spend more time on Government regulations than growing or even sustaining my business. Every part of government is scrambling to collect funds.

    In the mean time Healthcare costs have become a major issue for us. Our insurance costs have on an average gone up by 20% every year and almost doubled in the last four years. I am not sure who is to blame, the politicians or the Insurance Agencies. I have contemplated several time to hang my boots.

    I contributed to Democrats in the past and considered myself a Democrat. I don't know anymore, I think these four years have had a huge impact on my political beliefs. I don't hope for change anymore, I want to go back to a system which rewards entrepreneurs and people who create jobs. It has been a tough four year period and I don't think I can endure another four.

    155 Million opening week, yay Hunger Games just destroyed the competition. LGF had so much buzz. Monday should see the shares pop.

  • Lions Gate Entertainment Corporation: Not Just A Movie Business [View instapost]
    Nice run up, time to take some profits and hedge bets...whats say Brian. The marketing machinery for LGF and Hunger Games was phenomenal. I am impressed by their use of various media like Facebook, Twitter, Mall Visits, Radio, and others. All you hear is Hunger Games. The Buzz is deafening. I am sure they will execute well but it is still an entertainment business....a big gamble.

  • Watch Lions Gate Surge As The World Watches 'The Hunger Games' [View article]
    For sure there is a lot of buzz, and how LGF monetizes this is to be seen. This business is very risky and can LGF keep making profits. I think you can definitely add it to your speculative portfolio and roll the dice.

  • America Should Run From Dunkin' [View article]
    Well not such a great call for now. Only time will tell. I think Dunkin is a great buy long term. It is expanding quickly in the West Coast and South. Also there is the tailwind from Asia where they just signed up a master franchisee.

  • LinkedIn Climbs Back Up To $90: Why It's Time To Short Again [View article]
    Today Monster announced that it is looking for strategic options. This was my point that Linked In is fast becoming a job board. I know the valuations are high for it but Linked In may now acquire Monster. We will have to wait and watch how this all shakes up.

  • Wynn Resorts: The Show Has Just Begun [View article]
    Time to make that switch to LVS. I just sold my position in WYNN. All these distractions cannot be good for Management. WYNN has out performed everyone in this sector and commanded a premium for that. I have been long on WYNN, but now have reconsidered.

    The buzz about Hunger Games is deafening. I have not watched the Twilight series but my kids did. I am planning to watch hunger games on day one. I am not sure about the financials as I cannot figure out the valuations on these stocks. Lorax has done so well this weekend and I guess Hunger Games will do over 100 Million in the opening week. I am not sure how it translates to bottomline, but this can be a good short term bet for March.
