  • Alibaba Is Already Bigger Than eBay And Amazon Combined [View article]
    Patric your argument that Alibaba can expect depositors to pull deposit on daily basis while funds have been loaned longer period begs the question,' can these big banks default on Alibaba?' Yes Alibaba can expect liquidity crunch but must have some recourse in place to safeguard its position. That we don't know! Are Alibaba and non bank entities capable of managing risk? That is a million $ question?

  • Which Weight Loss Drug Manufacturer Should You Buy? [View article]
    Great insight. With ARNA approve, a bird in hand, it is a better Buy than those waiting for an Ok. Now ARNA should start putting out NRs so that the public is up to date and the shorts run for cover. This has got to be a blockbuster even if sharing with VVUS.

  • Is Being Bearish About the U.S. Market Unpatriotic? [View article]
    I cannot understand what 'patriotism' has to do with the market. An investor or a trader just thinks one thing - $$$$. Patriots don't send you $$$$. Find good businesses and invest - you may not get GE at this price 2 years from now.

  • Last week, a former investigator of the S&L scandal told Bill Moyers Journal that CEOs of many of America's largest banks knowingly engaged in the fraud which has now brought the economy to the brink of catastrophe. Some say the government's failure so far to investigate any wrongdoing "is a much larger scandal that the bonuses being paid by AIG or anybody else."  [View news story]
    i agree with you. I don't think anyone in his/her right mind would have allowed the level of leveraging- but that's history. However history should also record who profited by this wheather they were inocent dumb people who did not understand the consequences of massive leverage and securitized 'worthless' bonds!

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    HOW IRONIC THAT AUTO HELP HAS FAILED. FINANCIALS WERE HELPED BECAUSE THEY WERE THE ONES WHO PASSED AND ALLOWED UNPRECEDENED LEVERAGE TO FINANCIALS AND GOT US INTO THIS HISTORIC MESS.
    AUTOS MUST BE HELPED AND FIXED-HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND LIVES DEPEND ON THEM. PUNISH THOSE WHO CREATED AND BENEFITED FROM THE FINANCIAL MESS. IT IS IMPORTANT. YOU DON'T GIVE BONUSES FOR BAD PERFOMANCE - ONLY IN AMERICA!

  • Major Yahoo (YHOO) shareholder Ivory Investment Management sends a letter to YHOO's board pressuring it to do a search deal with Microsoft (MSFT), which it says could bring in as much as $15B.  [View news story]
    This is fine but I cannot understand why the Microsoft offer of $31 was not voted on by the shareholders who are the owners of YHOO. It seems Yang took s/hs for granted and dictated what he felt like.

  • Citigroup: The End Draws Near [View article]
    couldn't agree more with you. Endless yapping on the likes of cnbc by people little knowledge move stocks up or kill them. Their off the cuff chatter has turned investing into gambling.

  • "The U.S. government could hand GM (GM) a tremendous sum of money and watch it be burned up in the fire of management's stupidity," Doug McIntyre writes. But the company is probably worth more in pieces. "Its best operations could be sold off without legacy obligation."  [View news story]
    the big AUTO COMPANIES have to be saved. At stake is not the money only but also jobs and livelihoods of many thousands. While the gov't can help with $ in the interim, the unions, the executives and other employees MUST make significant concessions to save their jobs and their companies.
    What a lesson to be learnt!

  • Where We Go from Here: Best and Worst Cases [View article]
    Wall Streeters at high levels should be blamed. They created and bundled subprime derivities with AAA fake ratings and worthless realestate and on top of it took home big bonuses, Where do u buy your bonds from? You rely on the rating agencies and those who advise you.
