  • Time To Avoid U.S. Equities [View article]
    Where do you conspiracy theorists hang out? On a Ron Paul forum somewhere? In a bath tub full of gold eagle coins? In a 2012 Mayan apocalypse bunker? I just don't get it. I think the S&P will have another 10% gain this year.

    We are attempting to inflate our way out of this national debt, as is basically every other major country. How is this new "funny money" any different than the money that was being printed before the crisis?

  • Betting On Apple's Operations Team And Gross Margins [View article]
    The price fluctuates wildly and level-headed investors should take advantage of that. Nothing has fundamentally changed with the company. They are still the leader and everyone still wants an iPhone/iPad, not an android/Nexus7 tablet. The past few months have been a perfect storm in terms of AAPL taking a price hit - iPhone 5 supply issues, Obama's re-election (sorry Barack), and the fiscal cliff scare. It's a winning formula for large investors to sell off their risk assets and/or take profits and that has largely been at Apple's expense.

  • Get Rich From Retiring Baby Boomers With This Little-Known Stock [View article]
    This is a pretty bizarre stock to try and tie to retiring baby boomers. This article doesn't pass the smell test.

  • Intel's Latest Acquisition: Doubling Down On Its Mobile Bet [View article]
    The market loves to overreact. I love it too, since it creates such great opportunities. Long INTC and looking to add.

    $90 investment vs. $136,000 investment? I dunno.

  • Dividend Investors Should Get Ready To Load Up [View article]
    Long-term, the "fiscal cliff" is such a minor event. If the market sells off in a significant way, I would consider it an obvious buying opportunity.

  • Muscle Pharm Corporation: Potential For A Multi-Bagger If Cost Structure Is Addressed [View article]
    As someone who works out and does a lot of researching before buying products, I can safely say that Muscle Pharm's products are superior and popular. That doesn't mean the company is a good investment, unfortunately. I'd love to believe in this company, but they seem to be reckless and irresponsible. They spend lots of money on a state of the art MMA training facility in Denver but can't get their finances straight. Until the executives prove their worth, I won't be investing in Muscle Pharm.

  • AIG Is The Best Insurance Play For 2013 [View article]
    AIG is a good long-term investment. If you are going to be submitting articles regularly, maybe consider a picture other than a self-portrait in your bathroom. You might get more followers and be taken more seriously.

  • The Stock Market Rebound Is Coming [View article]
    I think selling can continue up until Thanksgiving, but December will be a strong month. If you look back to 2011, it's playing out almost identically.

  • 3D Systems: Has The Printer Jammed? [View article]
    LOL! Well, your article is apparently responsible for a 7% decline in the stock price. You must feel pretty powerful.

  • Buy Ford: I Am Raising My Price Target [View article]
    "Alan's leadership is what has turned Ford from an uninspiring brand into a full blown luxury brand that spreads the globe."

    Stopped reading after that. Someone ban this idiot from posting. Amateur analyst posting from his bathroom giving out price targets. This site can be a joke.

  • Apple: Cheaper Phone Means Cheaper Stock? [View article]
    They need a lower price point phone to reach more Chinese consumers. They will make up for the loss in margin with volume. Easy peezy.

  • Omaha Hold 'Em: Going All-In On Berkshire Hathaway [View article]
    As a smart and lazy investor, I look at BRK.B as an alternative to the SPY. Berkshire picks only the cream of the crop businesses. You can be sure that they've been thoroughly vetted by the best, most conservative, and longest-time horizon oriented investors in the business. Buy BRK.B on ~any~ corrective dips in the market.

  • Groupon: An Unappreciated Business Set To Fly High [View article]
    Comparing GRPN sales ratios with AMZN and GOOG is just laughable. This whole thing is a joke, but thanks, I needed the laugh!
