  • I Respectfully Disagree, No 1987 Crash In U.S. Equities [View article]
    Margin accounts will hit stops (and there are a lot). Yes. But this will simply increase market volatility as not all accounts have the same stops or stops at all.

    I've following IMMY for a while. I'm not sure if it has Radient Pharma potential but this co. could provide some serious returns.

    Here's what matters: How many smartphones will use any of Intel's newest generation? Apple iPhone 6?

  • This Summer Slowdown Will Be Different Than The Previous 3 [View article]
    I can say that I generally agree with that comment but I don't think it is wise to base investment decisions on it by any means as it's more of a generality than tradable correlation.

  • Mediocre Earnings And Revenues [View article]
    Kind of backward that there is no correction in stock prices. Looks to me that the market is no longer correlated to sales and earnings.

  • Markets Rally On Terrible News - Is Abenomics Going Global? [View article]
    I'd like to hear some opinions on this new fad - world wide currency devaluation. If everyone is printing money all at once, doesn't that have some sort of consequence?

  • Markets Rally On Terrible News - Is Abenomics Going Global? [View article]
    Well with QE, investors think the market is bullet proof and that profit margins and EPS will go up forever and ever and ever while sales just sloth along. its insane.

  • Cyprus Will Bring The Red With It [View article]
    Markets can't ignore Europe's incompetent economies forever. Q1 is going to put France, Spain, Italy and UK back in recession. This event will bring markets down to Earth....

  • 4 Reasons Why Stock Market Bulls Should Be Cautious [View article]
    You makes some really good points. I myself have been keen to the fact that Alcoa and US Steel along with many other materials companies have completely sat this one out.

    But also do take a look at financials... these are aggressively bought during economic rallies; however, BAC, MS, GS, and JPM are all either going sideways in a channel or going down. Most people have not noticed since Citi is driving the financials but the majority of financials have all but puttered out. This is deeply discouraging as it plays into the fact that big money is moving into defensive names which has pushed the DJIA so much higher...

    So, my question to any readers... why are money manager moving toward defensive stocks?

  • Stocks Power Ahead, Now In Overbought Territory [View article]
    Directing a trade direction on past pattern is the basis of technical analysis (my forte), but making your trades on a month because historically it worked out that way is the basis of coincidence. I'd say not a good idea in most instances, but the rest of the analysis is pretty sound in my opinion so it might actually work out anyway. Market is wildly euphoric and remains in overbought territory and losing some steam, so I've lined up some puts while keeping some positions long (until something is for sure). GL

  • Indicators Show Dumb Money Buying Stock Rally While Others Take Profits [View article]
    I'm assuming it's been said but volume tells wonders. SPY (S&P500 etf) had it's lowest volume of the year today. Share volume was today was lower than EVERY single day last year except for one, which just so happened the day before a direction reversal... hmmmmm!

    I like to follow the McClellan Summation Index which is a breadth indicator, and it hasn't looked to good since mid feb.

  • Recession Like Symptoms [View article]
    When the markets are in a euphoric rise, bad news is no news. .1% GDP growth and the markets hit all time highs. Unbelievable how people can just ignore things when they're making money.

  • AMD's Temash Will Redefine Tablet Performance [View article]
    The jaguar core is the real deal. It's CPU is so powerful that it's variants landed PS4 and XBOX (720?) contracts. Generally they'd go with IBM or Intel. Seems to be legit from everything I'm reading.

  • Michigan Governor Rick Snyder declared Detroit to be in a state of emergency on Friday and said he would appoint an outside manager to help turn around its dire finances, which include $14B in long-term liabilities. City officials have ten days to persuade Snyder to change his mind. Should he uphold his decision, it would be the latest step in attempts to prevent Detroit filing what would be the biggest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. [View news story]
    I assure you, liberalism is doing fine in most of the country. In fact, liberalism saved the my hometown of PIttsburgh from becoming a Cleveland or Detroit or other run down rust belt city.

    Detroit is simply a broken urban rust belt city.

    Here is the real reasons:

    1. Economy is dead
    2. Jobs went to Mexico and Asia
    3. Terrible public education
    4. Unaffordable secondary education
    5. Severily aged infrastructure
