  • Softer Prices Leading To Underwhelming Results At Weyerhaeuser [View article]
    The legal problems at LL are open ended. Thus at 21 the stock should be avoided by investors but may be of interest to speculators willing to roll the dice.

  • Altisource Portfolio Solutions: More Pain Ahead [View article]
    Buying ASPS now is just like investing in Hiroshima real estate in late 1945:
    If you're willing to wait 70 years you'll probably make some money.

  • Lumber Liquidators A Value Play? [View article]
    The management has a reputation for sleaziness. Alone, this practically guarantees
    the stock will not regain a high multiple on much lower earnings, dragged down by costs of defending lawsuits. Buy LL if you like to suffer.

  • Exxon Mobil: There Will Be Blood [View article]
    If this guy were smart he'd know enough not to try to predict the short-term price of Exxon stock. XOM, #2 in the S&P 500, by definition is a huge winner that has way outperformed the index over the years. With excellent management, anyone who sold the stock in the last century was eventually proven wrong.

  • CDK: What's The Appeal Of Car Software? [View article]
    I always look for the moat. ADP has one. Does CDK? In other words, what is the ease of entry into this business?

  • 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.
