  • American Capital Agency (AGNC) falls 4.2% premarket as the stock goes ex-dividend today. The $1.54 decline thus far is quite a bit bigger than the $1.25 dividend. Secondary offering on the way?  [View news story]
    It was a lousy time for investors but a good time for AGNC ,it pays for the dividend. However, if it is true that they are getting ready for a secondary ,that would be the reason which makes the drop understandable and good business for AGNC.

  • Rentech Is Waiting For An Activist Investor  [View article]
    I agree with Hedge Fund Guy, but I was also under the impression that RTK was one of 3 or 4 that received this contract from the US Government. I also understood that they have supplied a small amount to be tested by LA Airport and it was successful.
    I do agree that our government should start a "Manhattan Type Project " to develop at least one or two good alternate fuels because Big Oil ,especially Exxon will do everything to stop real competition and a TRUE alternate is needed to give what is left of OIL, real Competition

  • Rentech Is Waiting For An Activist Investor  [View article]
    I am surprised that no one has mentioned the contract that they are suppose to have with the LA Airport, to supply ethanol made from trash for ground equipment this year. I have asked them and receive no reply about that subject. Does anyone know if that is a dead issue?

  • This Time It Is Different: Why August 2011 Is Not September 2008  [View article]
    I am not an economist but I don't understand if the Mortgage Bonds sold throughout the world are the problem because they tie up Banks capitol accounts, why don't they all get together and SUE,the Wall Street banks that sold them as almost Gold , the Rating companies that rated them the same as GOLD plus AIG who sold the credit default swaps that insured them?
    This is causing a world problem and everyone is afraid to call the Big Banks that are "TOO BIG TO FAIL".

    I am 85years old and a small investor . However ,I have been investing for over 40 years.
    I agree with your article. What I don't understand is why our government can't try to get big oil headquartered in this country to use as much Canadian,Mexican and US oil and only import what we can't get in this Hemisphere.We are in a global economy ,the Chinese are doing everything they can to buy up oil and other commodities where ever they can buy them. What are we waiting for?

  • Good for Goldman  [View article]
    Until Goldman uses the profits they make from free Federal money for Loans to business,they should give NO bonuses to any executive. They have been and still act as an investment Bank even though their LOUD cries allowed them to convert to a Regular bank ,while still acting like an investment Bank using MY FREE MONEY.
    That is the problem with Goldman and will remain their problem until the decide to become an ethical institution.

  • Obama and Volcker's Big Bank Reform: Careful What You Wish For?  [View article]
    I think the article is very good, we need Bank reform NOW for the following reasons.
    1-The first and most important is to separate the investment Bank or Banks from the Regular banks..
    2-Figure out a way to get the Toxic Mortgage Bonds sold. These bonds were created ,packaged by all of the big banks and sold by them all over the World. They have crippled the world Economy because if the Banks sell at the offered price of $0.22 on the $ they have, they will have to replace the $078 Capital that they would loose.
    This is the reason the big banks are not lending.
    If Business can't borrow money to continue operation they will die If Banks won't invest and make money and survive.

    This pheonomen happened during the Bush administration it is about time that the Republicans start to work with our President to Clean up the MESS they started.
