  • Welcome Back My Friends [View article]
    Nice work Phil, but what they do in and for the Stock Market pales in comparison to what is done "outside" the stock market.

  • Cash Rules Everything Around This ETF [View article]
    I am very high on FCF analysis also, but if you want to look at a case where looks are deceiving, make a financial review of Sony (SNE) , and all of it's financials and ratios:
    High FCF, low P/S, medium P/B (these days), and -------- negative income and negative ROA & ROIC, massive liabilities etc.
    Must look at and consider everything to be on the safe side.

  • Allocation Advice For The Do-It-Yourself Investor [View article]
    Gary, Good work and comments. Thanks.
    PS: I remain even more cautious than you, but that results from my studies of a wide array of factors, not just the stock market.

  • Economic Lethargy Continues To Bankroll The U.S. Stock Bull [View article]
    Once again,
    Hot stocks are richly touted
    While the shorts are being routed
    Hopium and greed retake the lead
    while fear retreats to the rear
    A lot of people have commented over the last several months that something big and bad is going to happen, well folks, a lot of big and bad things have already happened.
    We really don't need any more conditions or events to emerge as we have more than enough already.
    I don't know what the stock market is going to do as we have so many power brokers, politicians,insiders, and institutions supporting it for its own sake and their continued wealth and money power.
    So "The Big Casino in the Sky" rolls on and where it stops nobody knows which is not my kind of investment environment.
    The FED must be reformed or banned for any kind of trust to ever be restored again.

  • Greece Crisis Poses Risks To An Already Slow Global Economic Recovery [View article]
    GRI: Well done.
    The Greeks have devolved into another third world country, and they are gaining company every day.
    Nothing is going to save them from vast and enduring hardship, although with wisdom and prudence , it can be alleviated somewhat by help from the outside.
    Thanks for sharing your work.

  • Friday Market Fakery: Dollar Dip Does The Trick [View article]
    What we need for Gold to go up again is another really wacko administration pumping WMD and war stories, and stirring the pot again big time in the middle east, or elsewhere.
    Until then, save and apply your money for better and different opportunities.

  • Aetna - A Crony Of Crony Capitalism - On Sale [View article]
    Hospitals and Insurance companies have turned both industries into meat markets where the sick victims pay vast premiums to get in and receive too often needless, incorrect, or lethal "service".
    That is why hospitals are some of the most dangerous places to occupy, where 100,000's of people die because of malpractice and "accidents" and where $40,000 of needless tests of the advanced aged that the Dr's know are terminal, even though they may not know why, and by the time the test results are available the patient has already died.
    It took 10,000 years for the medical profession to learn to wash their hands and some still resist even today.
    As long as the insurance companies get their fat cut from the vast pool of premiums paid, they don't care, and as long as the hospitals are paid by the insurance companies, they don't care either.
    Commenter's talk about "free markets". Free for and by whom?
    The patients are the pawns, and the system does what it wishes with them.
    Without competition, the individual patients don't have a prayer, either for health care or for affordable insurance.
    If we don't have competition, we would be just as well off with a single payer system, and maybe better off.
    There are some wonderful doctors and staff in practice , but many/most of them are overwhelmed by the corporate feast as well, and some have voluntarily expressed their frustration to me.

  • Market Outlook - Technical Picture Worse Than It Seems [View article]
    Good work, and more realistic than the last couple of issues, in my view. Thanks.

    Non-constructive debt makes cowards of us all, and failures or paupers of most.
    Greece is in a dilemma that will endure for many years.
    They apparently do not want their country despoiled and defiled by chemical and materials companies dumping toxic waste into their landscape.
    I applaud them for this, and they have courage in standing up against the pillage and exploitation.
    A larger part of wisdom is knowing when to compromise and knowing when to stand fast.
    In the place of exploitation, however, they must come up with some other way to compete in the world, and provide income for themselves.
    To do this , they will need some benefactors, and good ideas from all over the world.
    They are well past the inflection point and can no longer do it alone.
    If we all don't improve our situations soon, we'll be following them into the abyss.

  • Possible 'Greek Save' Means More Drama Ahead [View article]
    That poor can is, in reality, in much worse shape than the photo illustrates.
    The real can is smashed flat, is full of holes, and a mere fragment of what it used to be.
    Soon it will be hammered and stomped down so much that it will be too small to kick.
    The media spoke of "solutions".
    What solutions?
    This one is not going to just blow over folks, and a lot of debt holders are eventually going to pay the bill, but not without help from the US taxpayer of course as we remain the world patsy for all their troubles and woes.
    Our politicians, bureaucrats, and Corporate self interests guarantee it.

  • Greece Is Fixed And Everything Is Awesome! [View article]
    Naybob: Nice reply, Thanks.
    We used to get a cup of coffee for a "pair of dimes", now it takes a "pair of dollars". That's one paradigm we should all be familiar with.

  • Greece Is Fixed And Everything Is Awesome! [View article]
    Yes, it's all there, all we have to do is look and apply a little common sense.
    Good to see you are staying on top of things and helping us do likewise.
    Ever since I used the term "The Great Unraveling" a few weeks ago on S/A, I've heard the term "unraveling" many times in the media, so it must have struck a chordant note with some.
    I believe we started unraveling in 1970, so it is nothing new to me, and anyone who thinks that we have years before it becomes critical might consider that thought because we've been unraveling for a long time, and the "soak time" has already taken place.
    Thanks for another interesting and entertaining article that is right on in so many ways.

    Fred Piard: " hedge proportionately" - that's the ticket in my view, and what I was alluding to in my previous comment.
