  • WSJ: U.S. probe into Wal-Mart foreign bribery finds possible misconduct [View news story]
    Pardon, meant out-do stocking shelves - they obviously do not have inventory because the shelves are partially empty and product not available, they have sold out inventory so fast it's not available, they do not have the personnel to stock the shelves, they no longer have sufficient cash for purchase of said inventory, or the weather prevents transport of said inventory to stock shelves (which actually happened last year in NE USA). Pick one, or two, or three. It's a wonderment. Wal-Mart, yeaaaaa!
    Thank You for your correction, bless your heart.

  • WSJ: U.S. probe into Wal-Mart foreign bribery finds possible misconduct [View news story]
    Wal-Mart can barely keep the shelves stocked in their stores in USA - so what are they doing trying to expand outside the USA? Just interested. Just one store chain to expand like Wal-Mart and out-do their present inventory, would be all it would need. Once upon a time there was this store.......

  • Continued sluggish oil exploration to weigh on oil services, analyst says [View news story]
    You don't understand - job reports are 'up'! - the economy is on the 'rise'! There are no companies closing plants, no people being unemployed, everything is FINE! Just see the job reports, the housing figures, the 'futures', the transportation reports, etc. EVERYTHING IS FINE! It's just my imagination, running away with me, Just my imagination. You don't understand. Everything. Is. Just. Fine.

    I have some sweet property on a side crater in Mars, that is, if you are interested.

  • Goldman sees four rate hikes over next year [View news story]
    At age 55 was 'requested' to leave the job force after 24 years (federal contractor job); 'position was discontinued' with no options for another position within company. So this 'baby boomer' didn't have a choice. Found 3 part-time jobs plus after work landscaping jobs (lawnmowing, etc or shoveling snow) to fill in the position I once held, because among 'the many jobs available in this booming economy', part-time was all I could find. If you are 'part-time', employers do not need to pay unemployment compensation, health insurance, etc. So welcome to this booming economy with job growth. :- ) And this did not happen during the Obama administration; Mr Bush Jr, just love that guy to pieces. :- )

    It's good that the brokerage firm closed the trade. lol Stock gained 114% today. Where would that leave him (and unfortunately, his family)?

  • Market Update: The S&P Sits At An Inflection Point [View article]
    Auto dealers: email advertisement for 'no credit rating needed' for loan to purchase. Also, a commercial for new Buick SUV stipulates a $175/mo lease rate with $175 down at signing. Auto figures should be up or is this an averaging out of overpricing in past years? Remembrance of real estate loans(?). Are the housing figures up also?
    Thanks for the info.
