  • Buy Johnson & Johnson While It's Cheap [View article]
    <<Meanwhile the stock is about where it was 10 years ago.>>
    And the earnings multiple before the one time misteps is in low teens as opposed to 25-30 times in 2000.
    10+ years ago jnj was overvalued now it is undervalued with a few issues.
    No doubt jnj will not be the growth engine it once was but it can be a conservative diversified play on healthcare. weldon probably has one more life before shareholders lynch him if he has another quality control issue.

  • Buy Johnson & Johnson While It's Cheap [View article]
    jnj a solid company with global presence and highly diversified portfolio of healthcare cos. Unfortunately, developed economies will be under pressure for years to come to lower healthcare costs, therefore jnj will face some headwinds. With a nice dividend yield more likely total return (div & cap apprec) in the 7% range going forward. A decent return for a conservative investor and a dvividend reinvestor.
    Earnings should be looked at before one time charge basis so p/e is in lower teens imo. buying it under $60 would be best entry, but need convulsion in markets to get it there.

  • 2008 All Over Again? [View article]
    what I should of said osterix is that when Ron Paul does not win the federal debts will zoom to over 20 trillion.
    Even oblama needs to keep spending to buy more votes. The establishment is frightened of Ron Paul, but the public are a bunch of sheep especially the OWS types who are late to recognize the problem and that a leader is here to take on the serious fed and crony issues. They just do not get it. they are wasting much of their time sitting without a radical change in power.

  • The Real Estate Market Just Hit Rock Bottom [View article]
    Unfortunately the cost of living is increasing beyond income growth so how does Real estate go up when things we need are outpacing income growth?

    Real estate is overrated as an economic engine.

    We need real jobs making things we need and can export. Paper pushing jobs cannot support this economy. As mfg wages have fallen, mfg jobs have become more competitive with the rest of the world but at a cost, a lower standard of living.

  • How To Profit From A Stock Market Crash, Part III: Gold And Related Mining [View article]
    Hey thrift maven that is such an ignorant post.

    Have you ever taken a look at the US federal balance sheet and the interest rates on 30 year debt?

    The US dollar, interest rates and the Treasury debt are the real bubble.

    The demand for precious metals is coming out of Asia NOT the US.

  • 2008 All Over Again? [View article]
    Hey the hft computers have been throttled down. just wait when they are shut off we will see the so called liquidity virtually disappear.

    We have a broken democracy ruled by lobbyist and crony capitalist.
    We have a really corrupt country and nothing will change until some sort of revolt occurs.

    Hey just visit treasurydirect.gov and see that avg interest rates on our debts are 2.96% and back in 2001 it was over 6%. $454 mil in interest expense in 2011 fiscal year at such low rates.

    we have a tsunami coming and if Oblama wins which i expect since the majority of americans are only interested in what's best for them not the country.

    I figure we have about 3 years before the treasury debt and dollar bubbles implode.

  • Buffett Disses Gold [View article]
    yeah and how many of the stocks in the dow 30 years ago are in today?
    As mentioned below it is not an all in thing but as an asset class to protect against the abuses by a serial printing madman and a broken monetary system.

  • Buffett Disses Gold [View article]
    Said by a bitter man that sold his silver at single digits levels.

    He was wrong then and is wrong now. In each of those cases internet and housing, leverage and margin was at record levels. Most people buying gold and silver are paying cash in terms of dollars. Also supply of housing and interent stocks were pouring onto the market. where is the massive increase in silver and gold production?

    30 years ago gold was 300-400 dollars for sometime. with the massive increase of the money supply gold does not seem bubblelike unless you miss the entire boat and do not really understand it like the people in Asia who have been burned for centuries with currencies.
    another billionaire who has benefitted big time by this reckless monetary system.

    Anything fundamentally changed at the company to explain the large stock correction?
    technically looks like good support at the 17-18 level from the longer term charts.
