    I wonder if the Government would actually try and pass legislation to discourage EEN, CNLE and other players since it has a different agenda?

    LO is under pressure, in part or wholly because of the new FDA tobacco czar who reportedly is going to review the idea of banning menthol in cigarettes. What is the likelihood of that happening?

  • Intel Is About To Change Our TVs Just Like Apple Changed Our Smartphones  [View article]
    The day I spend $150 a month for the privilege of watching endless commercials interrupted occasionally by programming is the day before they move me to the ole-folks home to finish off my days.

  • Intel Perfectly Positioned For Next Computing Revolution  [View article]
    I agree pfifla1, MacAfee is insidious and hard to get rid of all of it's components so you can download a better free anti-virus.
    I mean, is there really a market for all of this crap that this article predicts Intel will provide? But, I am of the old school, I just want a frigging cell phone that I can make calls and receive calls - PLEASE, I do not want a camera and 500 options to mess with while I try and figure out how to answer the phone without losing the call or forwarding it to Mongolia -but thats just me.
    yeah, I think INTC will have better days ahead but the question is - will those 'better days' be better enough to tie up any significant funds-I doubt it.

  • 'Team Alpha' Portfolio: When To Buy And When To Sell  [View article]
    I have been moderately successful selling Puts on stocks that I wouldn't mind owning and are severely oversold. An example would be Allstate (ALL) which took a beating after the storm 'Sandy' hit the East cost. I could find nothing that warranted the selloff and got a nice premium for a stock that has recovered nicely and I now have the choice of selling now for an 85% profit or waiting 97 days for a possible 100% profit.
    Of course not all trades have ended so successfully and once in awhile I have to make a choice as to roll the option or just get out. I think the trick is not to get too excited when I see a stock I like getting hammered and pull the trigger too soon. The key is to watch it, learn everything you can about why it is getting hammered and if those reasons sound reasonable or just an overreaction.

  • Investing In Guns: High-Caliber Options For Your 2013 Portfolio  [View article]
    Actually I think Adam Lanza's mom had little help from the system (cut backs and all) so she was unable to deal with an out of control socially challenged kid. The incidents says more about the lack of help people like her are able to get with this kind of kid than it does about her or guns.
