  • Exxon Mobil: Is This Stock The Best Way To Play A Rise In Oil Prices? [View article]
    I can't understand an oil analyst with a frozen brain, tight nuts and a rusty tool for forecasting. Spray some WD 40 on your tongue to free-up your thinking before you decide to buy XOM.

  • What Went Wrong At Ocwen, And What Happens Next? [View article]
    I agree. OCN, RESI, ASPS, HLSS & AAMC measured by the charges brought against them are run by a posse of unsavory characters led by Erbey now ousted by "DFS". Despite his having lost $500 million plus his listing in Forbes last year, he remains a very rich, if wily, target for future stockholder law suits. His residence in the Islands is by no means an accident.

  • Valero Energy: 5 Reasons To Buy Now [View article]
    If VLO is so great, why are thousands of shareholders willing to sell the stock at
    7 times earnings? The reasons are obvious except to the suckers who are willing to buy them out!

    Gibberish, gobbleygook or smoke......I can't figure out which. The stockholders you bought out at 650 must be pleased.

  • The Simple Case For Microsoft [View article]
    Typical of a numbers wonk, he shows lots of bones but no meat. The future of MSFT lies in new products/services that don't show up in a rear view mirror full of numbers.

  • Beverage Wars: Coca-Cola Vs. PepsiCo [View article]
    KO has specific risk & systemic risk while SPY representing 500 stocks has only systemic risk and yet has outperformed KO for 10 years. With a higher pxe than SPY today, why would any idiot pay 40 for KO?

  • Could The Fed Have Avoided 2008? [View article]
    Hindsight. Every freak is a genius with hindsight. Every boom ends with a bust - the lesson of financial history. My question: if you're so smart how come you're not rich?ug

  • Google's Lenovo Buy Just Temporary [View article]
    Lacks vision and perspective. Largest PC mfgr with a measly $10B market cap in country with 1.3 billion pop. L T beats the S&P; also cheap takeover target. My conclusion: Rotten analysis for investors looking to make money.

  • Warren Buffett's 'Cool' Assistant At Berkshire Hathaway [View article]
    You're suffering mostly systemic risk not much BRKB specific risk. Remember, when they raid the whorehouse they take the piano player too i.e. don't buy a stock if you think the stock market is headed lower.
