    MM: It's a lot of suits, but I'm guessing that vast amounts of suits will be needed (probably several per person), and am also guessing that the US is gearing up to send in multiple units, soon, as Cuba announced yesterday.

    Conspiracy theory? Or not.

    US State Department orders 160,000 HAZMAT suits:

    http://bit.ly/1oRWUbc

    I don't know if this is bunk or not, especially with what doc has written here. This video states that the virus "may" be going air born. US remains adamant that Ebola will never become air born, but Canadian officials state there's a chance, given that each and every time someone contracts Ebola, that the genetic input can be altered trillions of times.

    Further, apparently (again...is this true?) there was a study where infected pigs were put into a pen that was separated by a wire fence. In the next pen were monkeys, who apparently caught Ebola just by breathing.

    So the question remains, why did the US State Department put out a bid for 160,000 suits. What do they know, that we don't?

    I'm hoping this is all a lot of nonsense, and will try to do some more veracity research tomorrow or the next day.

    I just want to know when Rattie is going to eat his cheese. Nothing like a hunk of good aged cheddar!

    In reading Jeff Miller's The Week Ahead article over on EconIntersect, I was completely caught off guard by this link he provided.

    Hint: The revised Q2 GNP will be revised upward...massively.

    Not sure how the market will respond, with Yellen speaking later this week, Russia invading again, and the Scottish vote for independence, amongst the other factors like Syria, Ebola, China imports down significantly, etc.

    Mercy Jimenez is perhaps one of the most insightful investors on Seeking Alpha.

    What she writes I pay attention to. And feel lucky to do so.

    Seeking Alpha with Biotechnology ETFs

    -- 2014 is shaping up to be another strong year for the biotechnology industry and associated exchange-traded funds (ETFs). After declining nearly 20% from February to April, the NYSE Arca Biotechnology Index rebounded to new highs during the month of August, boosting year-to-date returns to 34.6% (through 8/31/14). As in years past, the industry’s news flow contained a number of important announcements that significantly impacted near term returns for biotechnology stocks. While such stories have a tendency to frame investors’ conceptions of biotechnology ETFs in terms of short-term, tactical trading opportunities, a compelling case can also be made for longer-term, strategic allocations to the biotechnology industry.

    Pretty neat device, Doc.

    We spent a small fortune on my mother's hearing aides and all she did was do everything in her power to not wear them.

    LT: Good! I've owned some BAC since it was $17.00. Was, as usual, too early, but I still think BAC will be a $20.00 by year's end.

    Own a couple of trading blocks in the gamer account I bought in the mid-$15s. I guess getting those shares was preordained. ;-)

    Yeah...and a major reason why I invested heavily into Axion was because of your touting BMW way back when.

    Now you consider the automotive sector irrelevant? What kind of investing switch gears is that? You are jumping lily pads.

    Way back in 2011, when BA stood up and gave an impromptu speech about BMW, I should have realized that my Catch 22 theory then...was uninvestable.

    Bad move by me. But that theory still stands today.

    With the 999 sidelined almost to obscurity, now two of your "tier ones" are back burnered.

    Though I wish you great success with the ePower show forthcoming, there's nothing revenue-wise I can see by your own admissions that will be relevant to Axion's top line before 2016.

    I'm very worried that this coming offering is way far undersubscribed.

    This is simply no time for Axion to be in a quiet period. If there were sales, Axion should be announcing them.

    Ergo...no sales, as usual.

    WT: I don't view a 3 to 4% pullback as anything more than a buying opportunity.

    WT: Over the recent past, when MLPs announce an offering, the price typically drops 5 to 7%, and often goes a little below the offering price. I was impressed that the price started to recuperate so quickly today.

    I'm looking for a 4 to 6% gain in the next two weeks. From there, who knows?

    The ~ 9.7% yield is sweet.

    Speaking of bounce backs, SBOTF is on the rise again, as they announced they'll have enough cash to last all the way through 2015.

    FPA. What I didn't include is that the jug of lemonade was not sold. Since the card table was going to get tossed, the only costs were the chip bag clips and the paper table cloth.

    The kid made $4 on the lemonades, and 10 bucks for the table. $14 for about 20 minutes of work.

    The kid has a future in M&As!

    FWIW: My broker thinks there's a decent chance that the market will pull back 3 to 4% within the next two weeks or so. France is heading into recession. Their 10 year is priced at 1.5%.

    Italy is in trouble, and has a high unemployment rate.

    Longer bonds may be in trouble, and he thinks the 30 year US T-Bill will rise to ~ 3.4%, which will have the CNBC chatter heads...well, chatting.

    He also expects US's 4th Q GNP to come in around 4%. All is not bad.

    LT: Nice! My broker and I were looking at that BAC preferred. You'll also get the 15% preferred tax rate, so I think you caught a good one there!

    I skipped on it and chose to buy some MEMP today. But again, I think you'll do well with that preferred.

    Just bought 2000 shares of Memorial Production (MEMP) after they announced a secondary. Yesterday the price dropped from ~ $23.80 to close at $23.17. Today MEMP opened at $22.09 and has been steadily rising all day. The offering price is $22.29 for 13M shares.

    I got in at $22.49, with a yield of 9.784%. I expect that the price will go back right up to where it was within the next few weeks. It's already up to $22.60 while I was on the phone with my broker.
