  • Wall Street Breakfast: How Does The Wild Week End? [View article]
    Those good jobs went to other countries, H1-Bs AND machines. Can't put that third genie back in the bottle. Go to Galion, Bucyrus, Newark or a hundred other towns in Ohio and ask "What employers used to be here?" It's a who's who of U.S. industrial companies. I don't have the answer though in the worse cases those jobs have been replaced by meth, heroin and pills.

  • Johnson & Johnson: Buy This Dividend Gold Mine As The Market Panics [View article]
    Congrats to those who scored on Monday. T Rowe bombed as I frantically was punching in Apple at $98.

  • General Electric: Is It Time To Jump On Board? [View article]
    GE was once $60/sh, I do believe, during the reign of Neutron Jack, the financial engineer. The CNBC crowd---GE was their parent back when---all have GE stock in their 401(k)s at around that price and it's only recently that they stopped belly aching about it.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: World Stocks Don Rally Caps [View article]
    Speaking of my favorite whipping boys at CNBC: 1.) They tell you to buy stock X on dips at, say, $30 (a stock which presumably you like and wish to hold for more than five minutes) but with a "tight stop" at $28.50. It implies that you can time those stock dips to the dollar. 2.) Yesterday on "Fast Money" at 5:00 (a show I happen to enjoy) it took them about five minutes to discuss the MACRO scene---China, FED, wild swings, HFT---and then it was on to their favorite topic: TWITTER. TWITTER? Who's the new CEO? Will they be acquired? Is TWITTER relevant?

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Global Markets Look To Escape Pull From China [View article]
    Good advice, gggl. If they didn't sell yesterday afternoon, The Machines that bought yesterday at 9:31 could sell today so The Bounce may not last too long. If you snared GE at $20 at the 8/24 open, $25-26 may look tasty at about 10:00.

    Fortunes or at least some big scores were made yesterday morning, if: you're a hedge fund or your broker's site doesn't crash. Had my AAPL at $98 order all entered when T. Rowe Price died. Still can't log on but I did get a "sorry" email from someone. Open this morning promises to be must-see TV.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Panic In China Reverberates [View article]
    My brokerage account is at T Rowe Price. The website crashed this morning---I did get my XLV trade in but my Apple at $98 went down with the ship. Been with TRP since 1976. Very disappointing.

  • What Today's Market Collapse Proves And What You Should Do About It [View article]
    If you own any mutual funds you ARE selling [even if you're not], just check out those 1099 that show up in March (if you're lucky) signaling cap gains taxes are awaiting. "But I didn't sell," you say. Oh, yes, YOU did.

    The oldest Baby Boomer turns 70 on January 1, 2016 so the migration to assisted living facilities is still a ways off. Sit tight with VTR and others.

    They all laughed at Christopher Columbus
    When he said the earth was round.
    They all laughed
    When Edison recorded sound.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: China Stock Plunge Weighs On World Markets [View article]
    Just drove from Columbus, O. to Kohler, WI and back and, as noted, the range of gas prices is quite arresting. Not smart enough to know why. I used to live in Milwaukee (Scott Walker was a county commissioner) and the Chi/Milwaukee corridor always had high gas prices particularly during the "driving season." On a slightly related note, I see the Wisconsin governor is repealing the 14th amendment while bolstering the party's standing with women.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Berkshire Hathaway Close To Deal For Precision Castparts [View article]
    When folks boast to me that they're "maxing out their 401(k)s," I say "wonderful" and then ask what they have the money invested in. Often, the answer is a proud-as-a-peacock: "Mutual Funds." When I remind them, or inform them, that there are 25,000 or so mutual funds the conversation takes a downward turn. If people understood fees and churning and loads and "managed accounts," and, and, and .... What's really sad, in my experience, is that the fee-gutting 'account management' is often rendered a friend, relative, or someone my sister recommended (and often a "name" firm) and I don't want to rock the boat by moving my account.
