  • Research In Motion (RIMM) -9.9% thanks to the FQ1 warning included in its "business update." Virtually no analyst is willing to express a positive opinion on the company, and most are skeptical a buyer offering a significant premium will emerge. Baird considers it unlikely Microsoft or Facebook would have any interest, while Stene Agee believes a deal at or below current levels might be all RIM receives. Bernstein thinks the BB10 launch "will most likely turn into a disaster."  [View news story]
    The comment I am replying to directly above is written by a PAID basher/spammer/whatever. It is designed to bash RIM as a company. One internet comment does not matter, but hundereds of these guys posting all over the net can help create/grow negativity.

    It seems like it is real, it seems genuine, but is not. They are sometimes hard to spot, except something this guy wrote is a dead giveaway.
    How do I know for sure?

  • As part of its restructuring efforts, Research In Motion (RIMM) is planning across-the-board layoffs that will cover at least 2,000 employees, sources tell The Globe and Mail. It's added RIM, which has about 16,500 employees (down from a peak of ~20K), plans to announce the news around June 1, and has been quietly conducting layoffs in advance. A source tells Reuters the job cuts could eventually total 6,000. (also)  [View news story]
    A lot of AMERICAN based articles love to, at every opportunity, bash the CANADIAN company Research in Motion while extoling the virtues of everything and anything Apple, an AMERICAN company.
    Wonder why?

  • Countdown To Euro Breakup Has Officially Begun [View article]
    None of the content of this article concerns me one darn bit. Why?
    Because, believe it or not, this will be looked back on as the good news in tens years time.
    The week the reset button is projected to be hit? For me it won't really matter. My only advice is to put yourself into a position where you can say the same.

  • Housing Prices Continue To Slide [View article]
    "I've been thinking that prices were at or close to a bottom, but it looks like I was premature."

    After 3 years, CBP's has his come to Jesus moment..............until he then confuses the market with the actual economy and shows how high his ivory tower goes.

    Well, at least we might not have to glance at any "housing bottom" headlines from this guy for at least another week or so

  • Why I'm Convinced We're Still In A Bull Market For Gold [View article]
    As long as we have a bunch of banker bendover buddies misconstued as lunatics, gold's future is......well............. know.

    If Obama loses, gold's bull run would end because Ron Paul(I have a dream) will install a new fed chair.

  • U.S. Housing Boom? Not Yet [View article]
    "At the same time, as The Wall Street Journal recently reported, the high level of student loan debt could also postpone some consumer home buying."

    Thank G-D I am no longer part of the 1%. I live in the real world now and it is so much should I say...........real.

  • The Housing Market: A Stealth Recovery? [View article]
    Oh my goodness-you think the recession is over? The government simply replaced the lost economic activity with government spending. I ridiculed and continue to do so, anyone who would think parabolic governemnt spending can sustain an equity market rise and those who pretended the U.S. wasn't going bankrupt from their largesse.
    I'm not bitter because I'm independantly wealthy my friend.
    Please, keep thinking nominal rises in a easy money fraudulant market(CMG or LULU anyone) is the key to real wealth. How easy people like you forget where bubbles go to die. Oh, and massive equity withdrawals from REAL PEOPLE suggest no one person on main believes it either. Finally Americans are waking up, or maybe they're completely broke and more likely need the investments to survive.

    Skipped the entire article. For others that followed suit, congratulations.
    For those intellectually challenged to have actually read the whole article, my sympathies. You could have just read my cliff notes:

    Massive wasteful government spending does NOT create economic activity because(pause for effect.........) in order to spend on one set of people you have to (HAVE TO) tax another set of people. The only way around this is to spend 15 trillion you don't have and then everything will work out just dandy in the end.

  • Why Higher Interest Rates Are Not Bad News [View article]
    Why do I even bother reading this bs?

    At current debt levels, my fellow muppets, every percentage point rise in interest on U.S. debt equals 150 billion annually. Interest rates don't matter? This man is no patriot except to his current, fleeting perch in life.
    One percenters, run and hide while you can. You can be sure .1%ers like this sack of **** have their escape route planned.

    Naaaah, never mind. I'm the crazy one. Ignore my post. Everything is fine. Have a great day!!!!

  • Investing In A Fed Manipulated Era [View article]
    "Fed has always been engaged in activities to keep inflation and unemployment under control. And justifiably so."

    How's that working out so far?

    "To characterize that as manipulation is to indeed engage in conspiracy mongering."

    Your remarks are either sociopathic, or your last name is Dudly.................... come to think of it, there is no difference.
