  • Won't Back Down, And Neither Should Its Shareholders [View article]
    I think Amazon needs to develop its own pick up service somewhere somehow. WalMart has its own . Often than not, pick ups takes days to arrive but the idea is it is free shipping . If not happy, you can just return it without the hassle of visiting your local UPS store or post office. I wont mind two day pick up orders. Since Amazon had built many enough warehouses across America, it shouldnt have problem opening pickup shops around warehouses.

  • Falling oil prices test OPEC unity [View news story]
    There is nothing to do with unity . Any oil man is all out to crush clean energy like solar . What is better way to do so other than lowering oil prices through deliberate overproduction and over fracking, etc? Now utilities may help out by trying to install rooftop solar in hope to push other companies out of business. Nothing is new about falling oil prices which is all about buildling more future wasteful demand!

  • Goldman goes to Texas and talks oil [View news story]
    My oil price theory remains that Big Oil and its henchmen will hang on low until every one of clean energy boys go kaput for lack of interest from consumers so drunk on gasoholic. There will be a repeat of 2008 oil price crisis that depressed real estate and financing. When will it happen again , I dont know. As of now, Big Oil is steamrollin'... the clean energy guys flat like pancakes..It will be a miracle to see ourselves continuing to install solar panels on our rooftops despite cheap oil and whatnots, so that will be a big disappointment for Big Oil! It can be a really different story this time around if enough of us had up to our eyes with all that capitalist crap!

  • The Seesaw Motion In UNG Continues [View article]
    Lior,,, enuf of your reverse psychology on UNG.... Look , pal, weathermen foreceast a brief respite from Mr Frost during Thanksgiving holiday . More cold days ahead! Coal is at historic lows because of railroad congestion as trains choose to haul oil instead of coal because of apparent better profits! Nobody is even discussing this at all. My free advice may be worth nothing to you..

  • Hot Potato: Playing Chicken With The VIX [View article]
    It is over my head! What I know is that you can choose VXX instead of VIX because VIX is an option of VXX , sort of. With VXX , you can wait as long as you care to... while VIX lacks LEAP options and tend to time decay so fast that you are wiped out if the market stay non volatile. I would choose VIX options only in LEAP . VXX will require you to file K-! return for partnership which is a real hassle!

  • Why Amazon At $300 Is Like Apple At $400 [View article]
    maybe Amazon is just suddenly becoming a sacrificical lamb in the eyes of wall Street as incoming funds is dwindling to an ebb ?? After all, Amazon was always known for razor thin profits since day one and it managed to hit over $400 before getting cratered down to $300 now. There is no knowing whether $200 is still in the cards as Wall Street might decide to do so..
    Amazon is in grey area right now, it can head up or down for no reason whatsover besides finally starting to make visible earnings at last.
    I would think that Amazon ought to stop trying to get in every department store known on Earth and start showing what it is capable of earnings . We need to see what Amazon can earn with what it has now. I think it is past time that Amazon do a pause thing for a year or two and start focusing on cost cuttings , etc. to show what it can earn . We need to get the idea of Amazon's real bottom lines , first . Then Amazon can resume its conquests down the years ..Amazon is spending billions in research and development every year and I have no idea how much of that can be converted into real earnings during the pause period..

    More shares you buy on margin , more shares will be shorted. So if you want to keep short sellers out, pay your broker in full !!
    What is not clear to me is suppose you paid in full for your old stocks in your portfolio then you buy a new stock on margin how do you separate this new stock from your old paid in full stocks or do your old stocks catch "short" cold from your new stock on margin ?
    The SEC should know something we dont...

  • Cold Weather Projections Drive UNG Higher [View article]
    Since last winter we hired around 2 million workers which add demand on energy supplies. Coal inventories is at historic lows right now. Utilities has very little to fall back on , let alone NG itself. Last winter was abnormally cold and utilities were fortunate to be able to use more coal to generate electricity to offset NG that is needed to heat buildings instead of generating electricity. There is no knowing how present low coal inventories will play into the NG futures for this winter. jrajohn , you are an expert but will you care enough to give your two cents ?
