  • Santelli's Rant: A Watershed Moment? [View article]
    I see some of Ricks comments but the vast majority of homeowners are loosing their houses due to lack of work and medical emergencies.

    Rick should view the same experience Jim Cramer had by living in a car or he should have my experience in 85 where I got a house foreclosed on and it was 800 Sq Feet 2 bedroom with 25% of the principle paid off in 6 years of ownership. I lost my job pure and simple and there were no new jobs to be had. I talked to a guy at a gas station who looked for two years and had that job and was happy.

    I understand his argument but Rick should live in a car for a while.

  • Kinder Morgan: Is The Trans Mountain Pipeline Becoming The New Keystone? [View article]
    Rachel Maddow is providing the best endorsement one could have.
    No need to sue just say thanks and use it in advertising. With her reputation little explanation is necessary.

  • Stocks May Surprise by Year-End [View article]
    Every Party when in complete control tends to overreach
    The best is just after the 94 elections when you had a democratic president and a republican congress.

    They scream stalemate we breath a sigh of relief

  • Watching BP: Turnaround Play? [View article]
    Nothing Risked
    Nothing Gained
    Compared to the articles on evacuating 20 million people and the eventual bankruptcy this guy makes sense.

  • 3D Systems: On The Road To Fair Value [View article]
    One thing I noticed is when high flying new tech stocks run into a bump the articles pile on driving it down further. TSLA last fall is one example. Most of the bear arguments at the time looked to be based in facts and quite reasonable as yours. As we see the TSLA Bears went into their hibernation this cold winter.

    Short term You probably are correct and the next Quarter may actually confirm your conclusions. Long term we will see. I'm scaling long the management expertise and it's cheaper at this time.

  • BP Oil Spill: Gas Lines, Higher Food Prices and a Broken Economy [View article]
    BP's stock was near a 52 Week High prior to the leak
    GS did what it was supposed to do. Take profits
    Their CEO well his actions speak for themselves

    The Elite did one thing
    Buy Low and Sell High. That's why they are Elite.

  • Barron's Takes Down Cramer, Again [View article]

    Tom T is correct
    I don't follow Cramer's specific pics immediately but I do what he suggests

    Wait 5 days and do your homework!
    Also there is an article on Jim's 25 rules of investing also published by SeekingAlpha.

    I listen to Jims analysis as one piece of the ever changing puzzle along with authors in SeekingAlpha. He does have balls and anyone who slept in the back seat of his vehicle like I have at times cannot all be wrong.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Crisis and Opportunity linked in Mandarin?

  • 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.

  • Hindenburg Omen: Savage Downturn Ahead? [View article]
    How many bull markets were prefaced by the Hindenburg Omen?

    The Presence of the Goodyear blimp over a NASCAR event is a reliable indicated of excessive beer drinking and an auto accident on a closed loop track.

    It seems if you get left behind in staying in cash sooner or later another opportunity arises since this market seems to be range bound this year.

    Two tickets from Germany to New Jersey please?

  • When to Buy BP [View article]
    I agree with sethmcs
    I live on the gulf
    and I own BP

    Not to say their safety record was very irresponsible
    Not to say their response was inadequate
    The Govt's endless red tape aggreviated the situation
    with the Commander in Chief looking bold to bolster his political situation (In his defense no matter what he does someone will scream it's wrong)

    BP I betted with many shares will survive

  • Cramer's Mad Money - When the Facts Change...(10/23/09) [View article]
    Oct 08 The Market was in correction
    Oct 09 The facts have changed
    I would dismiss the 5 year part. No one including the Soviets were good at 5 year plans.
