  • Shares of refiners are taking a beating today, apparently on fears of increased costs from proposed tougher standards on gasoline. The EPA is proposing the so-called Tier 3 rules that will require refiners to reduce the sulfur content of gasoline to 10 parts per million by 2017 from 30 ppm. VLO -6.2%, TSO -3.5%, MPC -4.3%, ALJ -4.5%, PSX -3.1%, HFC -3.2%, WNR -4.8%, NTI -5.5%[View news story]
    Famine is generally a political or distribution problem rather than not enough calories to feed a population.

    Most famines from Stalin starving Ukrainians to Ethiopian/African tribes starving their rivals to North Korea's famine today are/were politically created.

    "Over breeding" where, wigit5? Demographically birth rates in Europe, Japan and Russia are below replacement. It's a big economic issue. The birth rate in the US has been on the decline. The Chinese have one or two kids at most. As economies in the Third World improve family size is shrinking. I don't see where you see "over breeding" as a problem at this point in time.

    Please point me to all of that "wasted" oil & gas? And, to the wasters, of course? What a fatuous and unthoughful comment not based on facts. Gas consumption has diminished in this country.

    A "waste" of epic proportions is burning food - corn(ethanol) - as a fuel while the Third World has diminished calories as global food prices rise. Do you have a clue as to what is going on in Egypt right now with basic food prices for 80 million people?

  • Should Stock Picking Be Mostly Left To Professionals? [View article]
    Not every sector performs well in a bad economy. Mutual Funds are for the unserious and the lazy. It's rare Mutual Funds or Hedge Funds can repeat their good performances from year to year, plus, they degrade their returns with fees and diluted holdings because in every sector are winners and losers which they can't capture by the percentages they hold. They are now forced to annually disclose their fee structure with 401K's and it's a shock at how bad they are.

    It costs even less to do your own due diligence on a stock. It isn't like the information is hidden in this day and age. And, please, define "credible professional". I mean we aren't about talking brain surgeons in the financial industry which is populated by lots of mediocre losers charging fees.

  • Why The Fed Will Ease In September [View article]
    Bernanke is out of work if Obama goes down. He'll do whatever it takes to keep the Empty Chair at the head of the table.

    Those "white collar welfare queens" are still in the plus side of those few of use paying taxes or have you forgotten. Those lower income "white" folks are also the class that the Dems disciminate against. They've noticed.

    And your evidence that those "the white collar welfare (I assume working) queens" cost 100x more "than the "poor(I assume multi-generational non-working non-white) welfare queens" with their food stamps, section 8 housing and Medicaid? Give me a break.

    Lame rants deserve a rebuttal.

  • Prepare Now For The Looming Fiscal Cliff [View article]
    Don't confuse the stupid birdbrained Congressional Dems and Obama economy with the Stock Market. In spite of Democrat peabrains, who still won't stop growing entitlements, regulations that strangle industries and deficit spending, the Market is only being kept alive by the infusion of bond selling by the Federal Reserve.

    It amazes me how many Obama defenders will vote for him again expecting a different outcome. Stuck on stupid are the only words for it. They deserve to lose their shirts, jobs and kid's future.

  • A Classic Comeback Story: The Bullish Case For General Motors [View article]
    Spare me, Andrew, GM's fabulous comeback is fraudulant like everything else about this current bunch of losers screwing up the country.

    "Government purchases of GM vehicles rose a whopping 79% in June."

    And for more laughs about GM.....

  • The Fed Just Telegraphed: Buy Silver And Gold Now [View article]
    Those newer "rich" oil fields in the US and Canada - mostly shale and oil sands - are very expensive to access, drill and refine. The cheap and easy vertically drilled liquid oil has long been depleted. The major oil companies have to go much farther out into deep water to drill now in the GOM. It's much more risky and expensive. It's not that carbon fuels are running out, it's that the cheap and easy to extract and refine oil is seriously depleted in NA.

  • Earnings Preview: 4 Companies That Could Surprise [View article]
    Please, a surprise at these ridiculously revised downward estimates, it means nothing.

    Retail is a very bad investment.

    The consumer is dead on their feet and not coming back to pre-recession levels probably for decades. Consumer spending habits have changed. No more easy mortgaged appreciating houses to use for ATM machines to buy stuff any more. All retail will have less earnings for years to come.

  • Starbucks' Earnings Bode Well for 'Restaurant' ETFs [View article]
    What ridiculous hype. The earnings bar was set very low, SBUX closed thousands of stores which helped its earnings and it's still a very vulnerable descretionary purchase in this recession.

    Get real, expensive coffee isn't going to do that well going forward with more unemployment and real estate price destruction.

  • S&P's CRE Ratings Round Trip: Agency Now Deserving of Credibility Downgrade [View article]
    Disgusting isn't it, the unholy alliance between the Obama administration and Wall Street and the MSM.

    Chicago style corrupt politics have gone national.

    And who protects individual investors? No one.

  • Ryland, Toll Brothers: Waiting for a Pullback [View article]
    Please, homebuilders will be the last sector to recover in this recession and anyone trying to pick the bottom is a fool.

    Half of today's pending sales were forclosures. There are planty of luxiry homes out there at bargain prices which isn't helpful toToll. How many more of them have yet to hit the market when you look at the unemplyment picture?

    I see nothing that gives me optimism that Toll hasn't got many bad quarters in front of them.
