  • Kraft / Buffett / Cadbury: A Sad Reflection of Executive Mismanagement [View article]
    Great article. (long Mo/Pm/Kft)
    The way I remember it the woman in charge of KFT has to produce this coming year or she is out.
    The board of Kft is plain stupid. Even I saw what was written in this article before it was published. Is this the executives that are getting millions and still complaining?

  • Compensation: Another Approach [View article]
    Forget share holders...My 1,000 shares in the big picture is useless.
    The mutual funds can control the salaries with their share lots.. Me. I control zero.

  • Bank of America Issues 'Exceptionally Bullish Outlook' on Sirius XM [View article]
    Talking about R/S. Check out JAVA and JDSU. I have them after R/S.
    JAVA cost basis is $176 but sells for $9.30.
    JDSU cost basis is $494.48 but sells for $8.48.
    I have been in the market for 50 yrs. with other stocks where the reverse split is the death knell.

  • Bank of America's 'Solid Risk Management' [View article]
    I own BAC. Most of the comments blame BAC and not the regulators. Hello?
    When the economy gets better the first thing to get better are the banks. It just will not happen unless the banks are in the picture.

  • Individual Investor Challenge: Can You Succeed by Going It Alone? [View article]
    If the professionals you employ knew what they were doing they would be on an island they own enjoying them selves not getting up at 5 to get to the brokeage firm at six in order to trade at 7 in order to snatch the 5% a year you are paying in fees.
    What per cent of investors were you saying were intelligent??

  • How Buying a Home Is Gambling [View article]
    A home should not be considered an investment. Stocks, bonds, mutual funds are investments.
    Many foreclosures could of been avoided with a little comm sense. Get a roommate for $600/ month. It is tax free!! That's right, don't report it to the IRS. They don't care as they are not going after illegals that get cash on the job or there employers. If they did they would have billions more in the treasury.

  • Good Time to Refi? If So, What Stocks Will Benefit? [View article]
    What the Obama administration should concentrate on is the junk fees. They total many thousands of dollars and are almost impossible to understand.
    For instance. An appraisal is $325. BUT there are three more fees attached to the appraisal. They are worth another $117. Totally made up fees.
    This government stinks. They talk about transparency but do nothing about these junk fees.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Pelosi reminds me of my homeowners association. Because $$ was allocated to replace the mailboxes and posts that hold them the money had to be spent although only two out of 112 needed replacement.

  • Penalties for TARP Recipients Who Fail to Modify Loans: No Happy End [View article]
    Mr. Hill,
    I love your way of expressing yourself! Much like me.
    I own BAC and it has been very lucrative with option writing and stock sales. The first thing to recover in a recession is the banks. The government is funding the banks and there can be no better guarantee.

    These are banks, not charities. Try the Red Cross or Salvation Army or churches. They are charities. Banks are in business to suck you dry.
