  • Face-Off On Greece: An Interim Update [View article]
    All due respect and while you do make fair points, I do see economic progress. We can wish it were much better but this has been quite the wringer the global economy has experienced.

    Simply put we see our glasses filled differently.

  • Face-Off On Greece: An Interim Update [View article]
    Jeff... Interesting anecdotal local points and I agree with you austerity clarification.

    In addition to monetary policy, one-third of the ARRA was set aside for states predominantly to protect education, fire and police. This critical piece, at least for 2-3 years, helped to prevent disastrous consequences at the state and local level.

    While Europe is breathing easier now, let's not forget that their refusal or inability to follow the Fed's lead had them floundering badly while we were bouncing back, at least to a great degree.

    < Let's not forget that Greece did default on its external debt. >
    Historical clarification noted.

    The crisis and Greece itself I'm sure makes for a fascinating case study. While memories can be short let's hope Greece chooses not to test fate twice but rather continues to reform and set itself on a more constructive path.

    Makes a difference how you frame the question, doesn't it?

  • Technician: No Signs Of A Market Top; Use Pullbacks As Buying Opportunities [View article]
    After today, which I assume included "covering" I pretty much expect tomorrow to be down but if the averages move within half a percent (or so) either way that's a positive to me.

    Next week the focus will turn to earnings which I think will provide more lift. I assume the expectations "to beat" are that earnings aren't too bad more than needing quite good, if that makes any sense. Put another way if projections are cautiously optimistic that will be a key plus.

  • Elecsys: A Compelling Micro Cap Strategically Positioned For Growth In The Internet Of Things [View article]
    TBO, my style was to wait, hope for a price closer to $10. but that didn't seem to be in the cards. I also picked up CAMP and EOPN in the IOT and M2M space. I was buying with both hands Friday and Monday picking up a baker's dozen, mostly tech.

    LOL, Actually seeing "it" in blue doesn't always mean it will click through as wanted, but it usually does.

    Sorry to say I missed out on your rec's way back when but I'm on board the Jeff train now by golly.

    Happy to celebrate Jeff's impeccable wisdom and that I had a very Green Day today. http://bit.ly/1g87MNX

    I have no clue what either one of you assert. What I do know is that I've had a very Green Day today.

    David... I'm in agreement. Chris is speculating and may be making a very good guess. With growing evidence that we "could" have an El Nino the odds are "reasonable." But then even if we get an En Nino the intensity is up for just as much speculation.

  • The Increase In Volatility Spells Trouble For The Market [View article]
    mobyss... After this quarter's "acceptable" earnings our domestic economy is poised for expansion of CapEx and much improved earnings for the balance of the year and going into 2015.

    Nothing wrong with being nimble though which is why Friday and Monday I was buying with both hands. I much prefer to buy low and sell much higher. This has worked very well for me.

    It doesn't matter what Case Shiller reported recently. Housing is still in recovery mode which will be uneven but will continue.

  • The Stock Market Cannot Sustain Growth If Earnings Are Not There [View article]
    I'm on the same train and after this quarter's "acceptable" earnings I expect an acceleration in CapEx and earnings going forward.

    By the end of the year Bears will still be booing and I'll be counting me green chips.
