    So it's a good year to hang a shingle as a money manager?

    If I remember aren't INTC & MSFT in both indices? And if Apple doesn't keep up the run the broad market (I love that term) will be higher with those 2 indices down??

    Arne, that being the case I assume you don't like the NASDAQ as an index, nor possibly the DOW?

    Fair enough JP, I've been at this since I was ~12 and I have found if I'm not wrong on occasion I'm not looking hard enough as we will ALL be wrong if we take any real chances, the secret is to cut your losses while they're small and re-evaluate the posn. you may actually be correct just not the right time. Too often people will buy, stock will drop and they hold while they re-evaluate, I prefer to sell the common, buy options while I re-evaluate and then decide to get out 100% or get back in but minimizing both my risk and exposure while I check. Happy New Year

    JPKennedy, are you acting like an idiot or is it truly your personality? " "One of the lessons there, IMHO, is to avoid outsmarting oneself and just go for sure things"
    Based on that statement you are probably one of today's most successful investors and a very wealthy one at that! Just buy sure things, PLEASE enlighten us with just 1 of those. From your vast portfolio of sure things just 1 is all we ask. I want to live in the rarefied air you breathe.

  • Facebook IPO Filing Reaffirms Case That Snap Interactive Shares Are Undervalued [View article]
    I hope the stock reacts much better to this one than when they were at NASDAQ, the stock took a hit after that one.

    Beside investing (not trading) in the stock market my other passion is horse racing, I've been doing both since I was ~12 yrs old. I look at both the exact same way, I want to show that I'm smarter than you, I want to buy the stock that you don't see yet whereas with horses I want to bet on the 8-1 shot that you can't see winning, thus 8-1 and not 2-1. It's a 1 on 1 competition, Mano-a-mano, etc. We both cannot be correct (although in horses we both can be wrong). I have followed you Arne for over 10 years starting on Thestreet.com and with your help I have done very well, so thanks very much, BUT!!! I'd like to meet you at Del Mar one day and see if your prognosticating is as good when there is REAL $$$ on the line! LOL Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year my friend.

    How come nobody says WHY they think silver / gold will drop??? If our dollar craters (as I believe) then commodities all go UP as well as the metals. If there is a "crisis" even man made metals go UP, if other countries lose confidence in the USA and don't buy more of or as much of our debt then metals go UP, stop me when you see a pattern here and if you disagree WHY!!! Thanks much, and on that note a Happy New Year

    Why does silver drop if/when the bozos in Washington fail to reach an agreement in the next 17 hours?

    I think this should read: Therefore, the ratio of physical silver availability to gold availability is 350/120, or ~1:2.90. As in 1 oz of GOLD for every 2.90 ozs. SILVER. Something in that ratio seems backward

    I am not going to try to convince you I am or my CPA is correct, we will agree to disagree and if no deal is done we'll both find out soon enough. BUT, be prepared
