  • Daily State Of The Markets: Has A New Secular Bull Market Been Born? [View article]
    Thanks for an interesting read, David. I hope you're right! I'm a bit baffled at how/why you think QE forever in the US and Japan is consistent with or an argument for a secular bull. Glass half full, indeed! I'm certainly intrigued to see where it all goes.....

  • After The Fed Decision: Three Things Investors Need To Know [View article]
    Jeff, I always appreciate your thoughts, but that last -- about being aware that 'bond guys, hedgies, etc.' want your money, is a bit absurd, after you, an 'equity guy' spent a few paragraphs talking your book.......

    For the purposes of my very small position (in at .35), my intention is to hold come hell or high water.

    3cheese: if I had to wager a guess (and, my current stance is, I'd rather not!), I'd say they're hoovering up e-minis because the churn is profitable, there is a significant retail (read, weak hands) short position and most of all, they still have positions to liquidate.

  • A Closer Look At Harvest Natural's Improper Accounting [View article]
    My sincere guess is that the author worked for someone in Houston who wanted to flush some weak hands, and acquire some shares before the announcement. Timing is too perfect.

    So....you'd rather pay 5$ a month for 24 months than $50 one time? Interesting.

  • Putin: Russia to aid Syria if attacked [View news story]
    Maybe because there's just as much proof that the chemical weapons were used by Saudi-funded rebels?

  • Questionable Accounting Masks True Risk For Harvest Natural [View article]
    Much of this article is speculative.....like everything else about HNR, and in fact like the author, who is presumably using a pseudonym (Hugh Akston being the name of a character from Atlas Shrugged). I'm sorely tempted to look at this as a coordinated hit piece and add to my long here, but I think I'll hold off. But, thanks for adding to the already extraordinarily high entertainment value of this stock.

    (full disclosure: long, originally from 5, sold enough of it after it went to 10 to feel fine if you're right that it's worthless.....)

  • Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio: Are Your Dividend Stock Buying Sneakers On? [View article]
    I'm not entirely sure, but I think you missed WS debunker's point. And I agree. This isn't a dip for buying and holding. There will be a better spot for that within a few months, and most likely less. Keep your powder dry, unless you're a short-term trader, in which case there are of course opportunities almost every day.

  • Is The Bernanke Bull Market Ending Along With The Chairman's Departure? [View article]
    It's not entirely clear to me whether you fellas' (john, ken, snoopy) ideological perspectives are relevant to the business of making money. I bought with both hands after the initial rampaging response to Obama's election was over. Sold those positions a little too early, though. For my part, I just see Obama as a shill, who desires security. He doesn't want to alienate the people who are going to build his library. He has shown no propensity to take on the banks thus far and quite frankly I'll believe it when I see it. You may have a point Joseph -- in that midterm elections are coming up and the dems are vulnerable, Washington is hated. But it's a bit of a rock and hard place for them, as crashing the markets isn't going to jump-start the economy in the short-term.
