  • Time To Make A Bet On J.C. Penney? [View article]
    Exactly. Jcp is in the first quarter of play. And only 5 minutes have run off the clock. Employees I have talked to who have been there awhile completely agree this needed to be done. I'm a shareholder and rarely shop there; but I'm a shareholder because I EXPECT to be shopping there. Specialty shops are the future. Commodity stores can't compete with walmart and amazon.

  • The Free Lunch Approach to Finance [View article]
    Just wondering here if the market will punish this attitude/policy of bailouts. Or is the market now in the process of punishing all this bad behavior. Stock prices re-rated assets to reflect the busting credit boom and the grim view of the next few years. With boomers starting to spend less and debt burdening many, spending less than you make is the order of the day. Congress is socializing private debt. What are the consequences? I don't know. I am all cash.

  • Jobs' Health Is a Matter of Public Interest, Whether Apple Likes It or Not [View article]
    Here's something you don't get. While you and others may "like" to know Jobs' health. No one or even Apple has the right to know his private health issues unless he can't perform his duties under his contract with Apple.

    So Apple is unable to disclose something it isn't entitled to know and does not know in the first place unless and until Jobs has something to say about it.

  • Lehman: The End Game [View article]
    Let's end the use of the euphemism "moral hazard". How silly! It is just plain old larceny, theft, stealing; and the citizens, you and me, are the victims.

  • Vietnam and the New Frontier [View article]
    My 28 year old son (from Tennessee) has lived in Vietnam for 3 years. I believe it offers a huge opportunity although one can certainly lose money. The war is not part of the consciousness there any more than Germany or Japan is to us.

    Just give me average annual 25% return (double every 3 years) from $140 for 10 years and I will be quite happy.
