  • Caterpillar Is One Of The Best Investment Opportunities On The Dow [View article]
    We can compare price, number of employees, and all types of metrics however after many discussions with equipment brokers who say their customers would rather have a D9 with a ripper configuration shipped from across the country than drive down the street to purchase a similar product from a competitor

    The cost of downtime eats up the competitors initial price advantage in very short order

    This is true regardless if the technology is stolen (usually is overseas) or their own. If stolen Technology without expert manufacturing and QA worked the Eastern Block would have beaten the West early during the cold war.

    This company and it's dealer and parts networks are extreme about the product uptime and long term value. It's why they own most markets they enter.

    Add my thanks for your analysis.

  • Does A Scalable Business Plan Work For Vringo? [View article]
    The fact JA did not directly answer the question could be an indication of either
    1. Does not want to tip his hand
    2. Does not want to announce a change of heart after the catalysts have been modified.

    Either way it seems the way to Trade on JA's announcements is similar to any streaking low floater. His recommendations often deal with litigation and after rulings are announced it's best to be out.

    His opinions can be verified as opposed to hot air with other micro caps however Once many of these stocks spike remember the adage "Trees don't grow in the sky"

    In any case if it drops to $1 or spikes to above 4 the risk reward is your bet. As always Don't bet your lunch money just your mad money.

    I'm long but I'm fat thus I don't eat lunch.

  • Vringo Verdict And Future Royalties Against Google On Shaky Ground [View article]
    Thanks Dan
    Can't comment if you are spot on or not since I am the dumbest guy in the room. However thx for the assistance with the entry point hope to get a few pics of dead presidents on a bounce.

    DISCLOSER: loyalty is to pics of those dead presidents and a guy named Ben who took an X's advice during a thunderstorm. "Go fly a kite."

    Have a great one.

  • Vringo: Could It Be Worth $2 Billion? [View article]
    A VRNG Thanksgiving.

    Many arguments well thought out on both sides were presented with haters and loyalists on both sides joining the choir. Side arguments were about as useful as a discussion on what form of Yoga is better for old fat guys.

    General Statement
    It's a hell of a ride and was and may still be lots of fun. My guess only the scalpers know for sure. They generally walk point and seem to be doing well here.

    Thanks listings. Apologies if I left anyone out.
    * Thanks to Jim for alerting us

    * Thanks to Steve & Jim for informing us

    * Thanks to Modernist for creating entry points and pointing out the opposite side of the argument. Your loyalty statement on stocks was right on even if my comment was deleted on your post. Just like you calling it as I see it no disrespect.

    * Thanks for all the haters on both sides who made it a challenge for me to become the dumbest guy in the room. I had to work at it.

    * Thanks for Google (the evil internet empire) who made the Business decision to go with the Lycos technology without paying the toll fee up front.

    * Thanks for the Market Manipulators who can drop the stock 50+ cents/share to scoop all those stop losses. You educate us on how Wall Street really works in seconds. It's like going to Las Vegas where you can walk a couple of miles and see a half dozen countries in a day.

    * An Finally a big Thanks for the Owners and Litigators of VRNG who without them we would have to be a lot smarter to find a story with so much fun.

    Hi George
    You are correct but most of the time I find what I can ever add is of little value so I now try to just read and learn

    As a Gulf Coast resident I see your point. Be quick these events are very short pops. Clean Harbors may be worth a look depending on the impact.
