    Bark Obama has lifted sanctions against Iran. Israel is closing its embassies and recalling their ambassadors from several countries. What could they be up to?

  • A Requiem For Plug-Mania [View article]
    Hydrogenfc, you are right on. Public electric companies can produce hydrogen and oxygen at their 17,000 hydroelectric dams across the US with their excess capacity at night. The ingredients, power and water, are essentially economically free to them. The train tracks are already there in most cases for transportation to market. Hydrogen is the clean way of the future and the oil companies are running scared.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - The Market Is A Healthier Place (3/11/14) [View article]
    Electric vehicles are America's only way, long term, of getting out of its fossil fuel dependence and petroleum energy depletion crisis. We have to find a technology that works. Fuel Cell technology shows more promise that anything else we can see. And, the fuel may be green, abundant and very cheap. Here's how that works: Power companies are looking desperately for new sources of revenue. Producing hydrogen and oxygen for fuel cells is their biggest opportunity. Today 95% of all hydrogen produced is from fossil fuels. Very soon power companies will be producing hydrogen and oxygen at their hydroelectric dams. This will bring down the cost of these fuels for fuel cell vehicles dramatically because the electricity to produce them is essentially free since all hydroelectric dams have unused capacity during the night. There are an estimated 75,000 dams in the United States, impounding 600,000 mi (970,000 km) of river or about 17% of rivers in the nation. As power cell vehicles are deployed, there will be enormous revenue potential for power companies to produce a perfectly green fuel for relatively little cost. DO NOT make the mistake of doubting this technology.

  • Great Panther Silver: Interview With CEO Robert Archer [View article]
    Great interview. I wish someone would ask GPL management if the stock price is being manipulated, and if so, who is doing it. I just do not understand how the stock price of a profitable company with 138M shares outstanding, current ratio of 6.3, profit margin of 9%, etc. could be trading at $1.27. Either their stock is being manipulated or their mines are playing out.

  • 4 Black Swans That Could Jolt The Market In 2013 [View article]
    One more thought. Either Iran has Al Qaeda connections that they will use to plant a device, or Al Qaeda has infiltrated Iran's nuclear program to get the materials to make one. Iran's nuclear program has to be Al Qaeda's number one target. Either way the outcome will be the same. The US must not sit and wait on the next 9/11 times 1000.

    1) Iran deepens its nuclear enrichment program and the U.S. responds:

    The US and Israel will respond. They have no choice. Iran is clearly on the path to developing nuclear weapons - without a viable missile delivery system.

    Everyone is aware that it is not that difficult to develop a portable nuclear device or dirty bomb. Iran will eventually develop such a weapon and use their Al Qaeda connections to plant one in a major US city as a deterrent to a US attack. Even worse, Iran could even loose control of the weapon once it is in the hands of Al Qaeda who wants nothing more that to destroy the US. We should have hit them already.

    The Vice President has asked for talks and was rudely rebuffed.
    A strike must now be imminent!

    I wrote this SA article in 2008. If we had done what I said we would be well into a real recovery:

    The main reason this will never happen is that the large banks own Congress.

  • What Can Be Learned From Hostess Brands' Bankruptcy? [View article]
    Wal-Mart had a lot to do with the demise of Hostess. They were Hostess' largest customer with 40% of their business. Wal-Mart squeezes their suppliers so they cannot make a decent profit. Just look at Exide. They were squeezed so hard by Wal-Mart that they finally had to walk away. Exide (XIDE) now sells for $2.50, and may not survive. Wal-Mart also boasts that none of their workers are unionized. The individual,has no chance whatsoever against the large corporation. All workers world wide should have union representation and collective bargaining rights.

  • IBM: We Can See Why Buffett Tried To Keep This A Secret Last Year [View article]
    BetterThanBuffett, (you're not since you ask that question), yes IBM does have the same sort of franchise as Coke and Disney. IBM is the only viable large systems maker left. They no longer have competition for mainframes now that Amdahl, Fujitsu, and Hitachi bit the dust. If you know anything about computers you know that the world is run on mainframes and will be for a very long time. Mainframes are like the nuclear power plants of computing, without the waste. IBM also has the best line of distributed UNIX / Linux servers in their Power line. They also still have the i Series which runs many small businesses and credit unions. They also have the x Series which is Intel based and runs Windows and Linux. Plot any other computer maker's stock against IBM's and the graph will look like the confederate flag. IBM also has the best line of applications enabling software (sometimes called middleware) for all platforms. IBM also has the largest consulting organization on the planet. Forget about PC's, they don't matter. IBM is well positioned to continue to drive its competitors into oblivion.

    IBM has all but eliminated all competition in the high end server market. The only competitors for high end servers left are Oracle and HP, and their server line and prospects for growth are dismal .
