    It is amazing to me how we are criminalizing tobacco and legalizing marijuana.

    Interesting that lumber is down but housing starts were up 10% in June. Although housing is still not up to normal levels.

    In my area new housing has fully recovered.

    I am with you. I have learned to love the negative sentiment. The more the better.

    As long as there is weeping and gnashing of teeth the market will go higher.

  • Don't Take Icahn's High-Yield Concerns Too Seriously [View article]
    If Carl Icahn talks positive it is because he has a long position.
    If Carl Icahn talks negative it is because he has a short position.

    It is that simple.

  • Is This Gold's Magazine Indicator Moment? [View article]
    So by your measure it tracks inflation. Which is not a very good investment considering the alternatives such as the SP500

  • RPV Is A Strong ETF For Exposure To The Value Portion Of SPY [View article]
    For SP500 exposure I use equal parts RPV and RPG.

    With RPV being the pure value portion and RPG being the pure growth portion of the SP500, one gets the best of both worlds and the mediocre SP500 stocks are weeded out.

  • Economic Lethargy Continues To Bankroll The U.S. Stock Bull [View article]
    The media with all its negative press is suppressing any optimism.

    Every headline is about death, destruction and mayhem. They do it because it sells. It is a very sad commentary on human behavior and the media empires. You are feeding it with this article.

    It may become a self fulfilling prophecy and then all the pundits can say; "I told you so." When in fact they caused it.

  • A New CEO Won't Save Twitter [View article]
    Another brilliant article Boris.

    I have worked for some Fortune 500 companies and the CEOs all become the salesmen of the company. Courting Wall Street and talking up the company trying to increase the stock price which after all is their main income.

    Modern CEOs have little impact on the company expect maybe a few who keep their nose to the grind stone and actually work. I read a piece on the CEO of Danaher recently that demonstrates the power of a CEO that actually focuses on the company and avoids the media. He is too busy running the company.

    Ignore the celebrity CEOs and invest in the hard working dedicated, unsung heroes of capitalism.

    Agree with Urban and Mr Stone however, the one asset that Iceland has in abundance and is totally absent in Greece is a work ethic.

  • Sometimes One Mutual Fund Is More Than Enough [View article]
    From the comments it is apparent portfolio design is just like belly buttons.

    Everyone has one but they all look different.

  • Sometimes One Mutual Fund Is More Than Enough [View article]
    Dodge and Cox has some of the best funds in the mutual fund industry. I like their low profile. They don't waste money on advertising and putting their people on TV.

    They use a very disciplined approach and their low cost and long term performance proves that it works.
