  • On This Day In 1859 [View instapost]
    In the early 1960s when I was a young man I was fortunate enough to help crew a sail boat into the South Pacific with a month layover in the Galapagos Islands. I was reading "Voyage Of The Beagle" at the time, what a great book and what a great place. French Polynesia wasn't too shabby either.

  • The Big News At Delta Investors Missed [View article]
    True Cancun not to forget Alaska. Also Interjet and Volaris have the lions share of the Mexican market with discount prices and service to parts of the country not serviced by the others (at least this was true three years ago).

  • 25% Allocation To Apple - Too Much Risk? [View article]
    OUSA is six month old? Not much of a track record. So far it moves with the S&P more or less (Spy down .65%, OUSA up .32% and AAPL down 5%) in the same time frame.

  • High-Dividend Stock Yields 14%, Reported Record Revenues, Raised Dividend Again [View article]
    I looked at the 1 year chart for KNOP and compared it to USO. USO dropped about 20% lower than KNOP but KNOP did follow USOs ups and downs so I think oil prices and KNOP stock price is related.

  • AT&T: A Share A Day Keeps Your Retirement Woes Away [View article]
    colodude I looked at Motif's site. I will admit I didn't research the motif's but it looks like the minimum transaction charge is $0.33 per share, still not as cheap as Interactive Brokers.

  • The Time To Hedge Is Now! November 2015 Update - Part II [View article]
    My concern about RCL and UAL is that oil prices, IMHO, are more likely to go lower and maybe for longer than any of the suggested expiration dates. Lower oil prices also might mean that people drive more and need new tires more often (GT). I'm not sure what materials are used making tires but probably some petroleum fraction which might give GT a better profit margin.

  • 152 Years Ago Today [View instapost]
    david, not that I disagree with you but I'm not sure what you mean by "return the country to the way the founders envisioned it". Since the signing of the Constitution there has been the Industrial Revolution, a couple of World Wars and the Technology Revolution so the world is totally different with different problems than the founders could have ever envisioned. Also the Constitution has been interpreted by both Left and Right leaning Supreme Courts - there is no going back no matter who is President.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Markets Shrug Off Paris Attacks [View article]
    gggl please stop with the history revisionist talk. The US went into Iraq to protect the flow of oil under the guise of the imminent threat of WMDs and Condie's famous "mushroom cloud" speech. The US destabilized the ME with that stupid war, I doubt that ISIS or Al-Queida would have gotten any traction (at least in Iraq) if Sadam had been left alone.

  • Coke In The Crosshairs: Bill Ackman's Next Target? [View article]
    I have read that the vast majority of investors do not outperform the S&P and suspect that is why Buffet has said that when he dies he wants his widow to put her money in an S&P 500 index fund.

    Blueline - If the US had learned the lessons of Vietnam they would have not invaded and attempted an occupation of Iraq.
