  • Moynihan replacing Holliday as BofA's chairman [View news story]
    Query as to why this bumbling former overlord of the DuPont Company who presided over DuPont's dramatic decline and shrinkage from 1998 to 2009 and a cliff-dive of its stock from 84 to 16 was ever selected as Chairman of Bank of America Corp in the first place. As veteran bank analyst Mike Mayo declared with precision, the hollow Holliday is "a figurehead with no banking experience".

    Jack Bovender of the highly successful hospital chain HCA is a breath of fresh air for the Board and the Bank. Bovender would have been the superior choice as Chairman.

    Showing Chad O. Holliday, Jr. the door is a very good move on the part of Mr. Moynihan, but for the glaring fact as CEO, Moynihan will be reporting to himself as Chairman of the very Board of Directors who assess his performance and undoubtedly continue to lard him with an increasingly huge personal fortune in pay and perks. If that is not a conflict of interest and poor corporate governance we don't know what is. It seems the top "leaders" of this corrupt financial conglomerate simply cannot deal on the level for the benefit of long-suffering BAC shareholders.

    And the consequences of Bank of America's massive serial fraud go on and on, which cannot be good for long-suffering BAC shareholders, can it?

    "...don't get to exited (sic)...".

    We do not comprehend what you are saying. Or what vernacular?

  • More on General Motors' U.S. sales [View news story]
    How low is the bar set for General Motors Management in Detroit, as well as for some of their feverish fans and proud long-term "share holders(sic)"?

    The stock has gone from 35 to 32 in four years of gross mismanagement and brazen consumer product scandal. Some monument to executive and engineering malaise,...a cause for stoking pride?

  • General Motors talks strategy [View news story]
    Mary Barra's distant, end of the decade VISION of the troubled General Motors Company is not likely to excite investors in any sustainable way. This morning in early trading, these dreary shares flirted with their 52-week low set only yesterday @ 31.67. And 31.67 is well below the opening price of 35.00 set in GM's IPO nearly four years ago.

    Merely the opinion of one individual investor...funfun..

    Inflated "sales" do not seem to be inflating the price of the stock. GM shares dived into a new 52-week low yesterday @ 31.67.

    Inventory supply has zoomed up to 81 days from 72 days in a single month. Channel stuffing by GM's PR-driven Management?

    Whether your investment is 100,000 shares or 10,000 shares or even simply 1000 shares has no influence on the value of this $2.00 stock as a risky speculation. An educated speculation is more than "hope", even if it ultimately turns out to be hopeless. ...funfun..

  • Bank of America Begins Rollout of Chip Debit Cards [View article]
    Folks, there is a certain irony here, as the nation's leading bank in fraud-mongering and law-breaking in the 21st century by the metric of total litigation charges, settlements and fines to date, $77 billion, is working hard, spending big dollars to prevent being defrauded! …funfun..

  • Prana Biotech reports fiscal 2014 results [View news story]
    This small Australian biotechnology outfit continues to hold a library of patented compounds, one or some of which may ultimately pan out with a marketable drug for complex illnesses of the brain such as Huntington's or Alzheimers.

    In the meantime, PRAN remains highly speculative, but not unreasonably priced at circa $2.00 a share. A partnering with a larger pharmaceutical may ignite the shares.

    Merely the observation of one individual retail investor in biotechs…funfun..

  • Backed By Analysts, Bank Of America Looks Like 25%-30% Upside [View article]
    Yteeld, If you are not the slightest bit troubled or feel compelled to differentiate between a Bank of America having shelled out $77 billion for massive legal messes, and say, a smaller regional bank which has been fined or settled legal issues for $50 million, or a community bank for $1 million, then BAC is the stock for you. Go for it. …funfun..

  • Backed By Analysts, Bank Of America Looks Like 25%-30% Upside [View article]
    The above statement is false. The undersigned neither predicted a "decline" nor a "rise" in BAC shares. We are not in the business of prognosticating on the future prices of specific individual stocks.

    Funny, folks, how desperate these zealous fans of Bank of America Management are to find some sort of discrepancy or even a simple typo of one single individual investor who does not bite into all the PR cotton candy, blown out by Pollyannaish analysts or Bank cheerleaders jumping in the air and chanting. They demand a 100% consensus by all commentators and Contributors. If that is not a waving Red Flag for investors, we don't know what is! …funfun..

  • General Motors to outline goals and strategy this week [View news story]
    In the meantime on the last day of Q3, as a prequel to Ms. Barra's dog and phony show, GM plunges to a new intra-day 52-week low of 31.67. Anticipation of GM Management's "multi-year strategy" sure is firing up excitement amongst investors and traders. …funfun..

  • Upstart Argex Titanium And DuPont Headline World TiO2 Summit [View article]
    Retired, we concur with much of what you have shared, but respectfully dissent from your observation,

    "The new CEO appears to be competent and the company is moving forward."

    DuPont Chieftess, Ellen J. Kullman as Chad O. Holliday's hand-picked successor and protege, has pretty much continued to execute Holliday's simple-minded business model:

    Shrinkage Equals Growth

    Since 1998, under this destructive duo, DuPont has been shrinking and sinking. What high-profit blockbusting new products or breakthrough technologies have come out of DuPont's severely cost-slashed and demoralised R & D laboratories in the past five years during Ms. Kullman's time at the helm?…other than a pesticide with a customer-hostile name, RYNAXZYPYR, which defies memory, spelling, and pronunciation.

    Instead, Ms. Kullman has superintended the largest, most costly new product failure in agriculture in 21st century corporate America: The $2 billion bomb and consumer product fraud, DuPont Imprelis, a dandelion herbicide for the lawn, falsely, if not fraudulently marketed as " very environmentally friendly", "low impact". Before it was mercifully banned three years ago by the U. S. EPA after receiving over 30,000 damage complaints and protests, DuPont Imprelis (Imperils) destroyed and damaged hundreds of thousands of mature landscaping trees across the country, including hundreds of beautiful trees at the DuPont Country Club in Delaware!

    "Progress" and "moving forward" at DuPont these days is primarily a function of slick PR campaigns and Sustainability Stunts orchestrated by a responsibility-evasive Management and their high-price PR operatives and IMAGE consultants.
