  • Alpha Natural Resources: The Ship Is Not Sinking [View article]
    I think CEO's are generally overpaid so I'm somewhat biased to that question. That being said CEO's who guide companies through tough times and figure out a way to start growing profits/revs again after tough times are over do deserve good compensation.

    That WARN notice Alpha just sent out was basically a letter of termination. Those markets aren't coming back in the next 6 months much less 2.

  • Alpha Natural Resources: The Ship Is Not Sinking [View article]
    It's not, Australia firing on all cylinders. Better positioning to largest Met Markets. Less regulation in Australia. Russia/China natgas agreement may kill off any thermal seaborn market.

    Large Eastern coal producers can not survive even if prices were to rise $30-$40/MT without major restructuring of debt.

    That being said $ANR/$ACI are priced for bankruptcy and both will probably survive in some form or fashion. But expect sub $5-$8 share price for at least the next 4 quarters.

  • A Year To Forget For The Oracle [View article]
    Everytime an author writes negatively about an article someone accuses them of being short, conversely if someone writes positively they are accused of just being a bull with head in sand syndrome...

    Sorry contributors you just can't win in this medium :). Keep collecting those pennies.

    Almost every stock I own that beat expectations went down so it's no surprise that even $DIS can't get a break on good earnings/guidance.

  • Report: Walgreen backs away from inversion; stock dives 6.5% [View news story]
    SivBum,
    Again it is a simple concept. A companies fiduciary duty to it's shareholders is to make as much profit as it possibly can utilizing every *legal* avenue it finds. A company has no responsibility to the government or people of a country outside of the laws and taxes that country mandates. Next thing you'll be saying is that corporations should be building new roads, schools, and paying for universal healthca.... wait strike that last one.

    I agree with you that citizens should do all the things you mention though... elect gov, pay taxes, etc....

    SivBum,

    ...It's not the responsibility of the company to take care of the country. That is the responsibility of government. It isn't a difficult concept. I suggest you recheck that Civics class you skipped during your time at ridgemont high.

    Disregarding the political plug I agree as long as companies are within their rights to do it they should keep doing it. It is their responsibility to maximize shareholder value by any legal means necessary...

  • The Passive DGI Portfolio: Portfolio Update [View article]
    Only nice thing about IB is the cut throat low rates... platform and web design need a bit of work... but I am okay with dealing with it as long as rates stay low.

  • Seadrill intends to push ahead with Rosneft deal, despite sanctions [View news story]
    Iraq was a $hit hole before the US got there. But I agree the Iraq war has turned into a huge mistake. Hindsight is 20/20 though and this is an investing site and we should stick to that narrative.

  • Box office optimism after 'Guardians' stuns [View news story]
    Not only was Guardians a great movie (just saw it 2D) but nearly every movie preview showed at the theater prior to the movie start was a Disney movie. I think only the Expendables was non Disney...
