    Maya, may I ask, what's your exit plan for your 350 shares NVAX? You guys think the Fed will raise rates .25%? Or just talk strongly?

    Support is $3.43 from a month ago. Depends on your goal. I'm not into it as heavily as you guys are. Plus I sold $5.00 calls, I have .90 protection.I'm not day trading this. My average price per share is 3.83. I'm still safe but I may start a put position to hedge more. Put it this way, on a bad day this will fall hard. Now, it's in a channel. Look at short term chart. Earnings announcement is Friday. I'm not selling it now. But I might put on a put spread before Friday, just in case.
    Don't forget they just signed that deal w the Indian company. This is an international story, not just USA.

  • "It's increasingly a more important factor driving the foreclosure crisis," Moody's Mark Zandi says of the growing uptrend in walkaways, also known as strategic defaults and voluntary foreclosures. According to Citigroup's (C) mortgage unit, one in five borrowers who defaults is able to pay his mortgage.  [View news story]
    Of those 1 in 5, I wonder how many had skin in the game. I suspect many of them made substantial down payments. Every homeowner knows, that with financing, they will pay several 100% more than the cost of the home. The catalyst for that homeowner in Pennington referenced in this article was a job loss, not the fact that her home went down in price. It's important to separate the wheat from the chaff in these articles. This is not moral hazard. This is a homeowner that can't afford to throw good money after bad. There's a difference.
    Job losses trump all good intentions.

    That is almost half of what the IMF is slated to sell! I believe it was 408 tonnes, total available for sale.

    Wow,why don't you submit this as an article? I think it would get a large response but no one knows about it! Thumbs up, man!
    I've been reading some of your posts on TBP. You have fire in your belly these days. Nice photo- a definite improvement over the pumpkin head.

    By the way, I lost the quick chat when I was going to add a periodic table of

    SA is trying to retrieve the chat. If they can't do it, I will have to retrieve the stocks listed from scratch, and the comments will be gone. So let's give them a little time.

    I lost the quick chat insta started 11/1/09. I think it was my own fault. I was going to update the insta and probably hit delete. I emailed Mick Weinstein to see if SA can restore it. Hoping someone reads this!

  • Stiglitz: Don't Forget Role of Jobs Growth in Recovery [View article]
    Very good article and clever conclusion. How can the government create jobs? By giving tax credits to businesses of all sizes so that they can go out and hire. If it's a case of "pick your poison", that's the one I'd reach for. Too bad nobody asked me!
