  • Laszlo Birinyi: S&P 750's the Bottom - Barron's Interview [View article]
    Even Helen Keller could see that THE best indicator of a "bottom" is the unemployment line, just like last time in the 30's.

  • The so-called Y29K Zune bug was caused by an error in how Microsoft's (MSFT) digital music player's clock dealt with the leap year, MSFT says. The problem self-corrects as the device moved to Jan. 1.  [View news story]
    Agree with Chris B.

    Microsoft heavily promotes the 60% rule, where 60% works and products are sent to market. This only frustrates the likes of those purchasing the trash, and like a drop in the bucket. Sooner or later the bucket is full, and those same people will never look back.

    12:01 MS-Cinderella.

    I believe that they will be letting people go as rumored.

  • GMAC: Why the Bond-Exchange Silence? [View article]
    Even Ray Charles can see that GM is a corpse.

    Perhaps bondholders are waiting for the unicorn-Volt.

  • The Bull Case for Hedge Funds (Yes, Hedge Funds) [View article]
    Valid perspective, however I would be willing to wager that the hedge fund model as a generalization will be extinct soon.

    Call it what you want, hedge funds accelerated the accumulation of leverage, hence risk, and even though there are a couple good apples, the industry's bad will quickly fall from the tree which may implode the rest of the industry.

    It is utterly premature to start calling bulls, bears, and pigs. The truth is that no one knows the future of Wall Street, and positive spin in an effort to save an industry is only propaganda -- a self preservationist chasing after the wind.

  • Second-Guessing Buffett's November Bottom Call [View article]
    It's important to assess Buffet's investment moves in context.

    In terms of exposure, I seem to recall that his strategy still includes 2/3 cash!

    To me, he is playing ultra conservative - and that of which he has increased his exposure is in "sweetheart deals" with companies he already has a vested interested in preserving. In other words rich playing other rich like vipers.

    After all, 15% returns in preferred stock is better than our good friend Scrooge-Bernard!

  • Goldman Denies Madoff Due Diligence [View article]
    There, that settles it. Negative investor sentiment centric around lack of trust can rest easy.

    In other words, according to Goldman, "It's always the other guy's fault".

  • Exploring Madoff's Ponzi Scheme Will Unveil the Causes of This Global Monetary Crisis [View article]
    Correct. DOW at 0 when this Ponzi scheme is finally illuminated.

    Speaking of, let's talk about the simplest attribute of freedom. Trust.

    We don't have it, nor will it come about in my lifetime -- Im sure my tier 3 assets are less than yours.... Trust me!

  • Goldman Starts Getting Smaller [View article]
    This is a tremendous shorting opportunity.

    Hmmm, I wonder how much honesty is reflected on their balance sheet... no TIER 3 no you or me.

    Disclosure: NONE

  • An auto industry bailout, even if it only offers temporary belief, is still worthwhile, University of Chicago law professor Richard Posner says: "The realistic goal of an auto-industry bailout is not to reform, revitalize, or restructure the domestic industry; it is merely to postpone its bankruptcy for a year or two, until the end of the depression is at least in sight and consumer confidence is restored."  [View news story]
    Comments in support of any bailout are purely fictional delusion.

    This ship has sunk. Don't waste another dime.

  • What a Difference Seven Months Makes [View article]
    Why on earth would anyone believe any of this trash!?

    Oh, I know, their crystal ball shows the future!

    Perhaps they are planning to use TARP funds to buy up the price of oil (again!).

  • 10 Simple Investment Rules for the Very Wealthy [View article]
    Here's what I will tell the uber-rich whom are all (yep ALL) disconnected from reality, hiding behind their fortune:

  • It's a Mad, Mad, Mad Madoff World [View article]
    I would agree that people whom are defined by their wealth have a unique stench.

    The good news is that rich will be out of vogue as multitudes of new wealthy have nothing secondary to define themselves with.

    I really enjoy talking money with "old-money" or generational wealth. The perspectives from those individuals tend to revolve around thrift and solvency -- not the quick fix of buying something.

  • Will the White House Bail Out Detroit? [View article]
    Let's for a moment step away and look at the manevering. The White House giving Detroit a bailout has been the plan all along. Look at JUST the amount needed.

    First it was $25B.

    Then it was $34B.... hmmm.

    Now, it's conveniently under the remaining amount leftovers from the crooked TARP program.

    Yeah right, I'll bet commercial paper that the White House will hand over the money -- guaranteed... hook line and sinker.
