  • Is It Finally Time To Buy Gold? [View article]
    Gold had become Yellen dependent and she recently changed the direction of Gold by mentioning that interest rates will be based on economic conditions and not an arbitrary statement from the Fed. The consumer price index is the best measure of inflation because all shoppers realize prices are going up in grocery stores and espceially entertainment centers like movies. Our government has a weird way of reporting inflation since they leave out food and energy costs and we all know those are going up.

  • China's State Reserves Bureau Stockpiling Rare Earths; Should Molycorp Worry? [View article]
    The major capitalistic country is China and clearly their growth and performance shows how it works. We are following Europe and turning into a Socialistic form of govenrment where about half of the population are now looking for handouts based on the work of the other half. Soon they will become the number one economy in the world and we will be working for them. Learn Mandarin because they will be the boss and we will produce jobs serving as waiters, cashiers etc. The housing market will continue to drop because 40% of real estate deals are being paid with cash to get around the paper work to accquire a loan. Tell your represenatative to eliminate laws and to stop making new ones. We are choking on paper work.

  • Ride The Chinese Internet Surge With Baidu And Qihoo 360 Despite Recent Sell-Off [View article]
    My concern with Chinese stock is the uncertainty in the financial management of all companies. Some smaller companies have reported unrealistic gains like those of Qihoo, only to collapse leaving the investor with empty hopes and losses.

  • Censorship And The Chinese Economy: Baidu's Greatest Assets [View article]
    The real problem with Chinese Stocks is lack of financial structure. One day they report great earnings and growth projections and the next day the company is de-listed or is unable to provide any kind of payment because of some government regulations. They are playing monopoly and since they hold all the real assets they do whatever is necessary to maximize profits to the detriment of the investor. Beware and Beware. Remember they placed restrictions on Google to give bidu time to compete by stealing technology. Remember that they do not play fair and our governement does nothing to counter them. They will just take your dollars and come back with a suitcase to buy some real estate in the US.

  • Apple Is Walking Up The Down Staircase [View article]
    Have made 15 trips to China in my lifetime and beginning to understand the Chinese mindset. Those with super amounts of money will buy cars even though they still need public transportation. Those with moderate amounts of money cannot afford a car, nor a house so they rent. They have abundancy in disposable income and can afford an Apple product. Having Apple prouducts provides them the prestige desired and it also provides functionally. But being sound in mind they will use the newest phones like a computer so a large screen is highly desirable. Glad that Apple is on that project and it will challenge the Korean iPhone. There will be no comparison because Korean products do not yet have the prestige factor which comes with Apple. Apple will do well and the link with China Mobile will bear good fruit.

  • Bank Of America: More Cost Cuts On The Way [View article]
    This is the year to buy BAC stock since they are working hard to reduce the kind of arrangements made with Warren Buffet. Agree with the statement made earlier about not raising the dividend rate. This stock is one that is worth holding for at least a year.

  • Fed set to say whether approves bank plans to return money to investors [View news story]
    I like the way BAC passed, because they barely did. But that is good enough and they have time to improve which is what they are doing. I infact they were number 29 out of 30 banks but number 30 did not pass.

  • Tech giants enjoy tax-free interest on offshore Treasury holdings [View news story]
    All this money in overseas banks is not creating jobs here in America. They have paid local taxes so why should they be taxed again. We need to let them bring it back without any penalty since these are foreign funds earned by the American companies. They can then use these funds to create jobs here in America. If we keep forcing them to keep it overseas, they will just produce jobs overseas with that money and that is what they are currently doing. This country will lose good paying research jobs and by now you should recognize that fact. We are cutting off our nose with this battle and Carl Levin is one idiot politician.
