  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Robert - "Distasteful'' is an understatement for your latest offering. It is worth rereading, slowly, to let its full meaning sink in. Were it possible to poll late 15th century Jews living in southern Spain as to whom of their conquerors provided a more enlightened rule, no doubt a preference for their former Moorish overlords vs. their new intolerant Christians rulers would prevail. As for Dark Ages, one should remember that the first one existed under our direct genetic, cultural and religious ancestors.

    Deercreekvols - As long as it is remembered that the kingdom is getting smaller and that there are a growing number of republicans/environmen... the diminishing number of monarchists will continue to provide a market that will have its ups, and not just downs. Buggy whip manufacturers did not all go bankrupt, and certainly not overnight. Zealotry does indeed provide bad insight for any market including that of King Coal.

    berbno1 - Yes, but the present treaty was a follow-up to a ban on gas warfare put through in the 1920's. The counter-argument is that this was a lone relic among a number of arms limiting treaties that had long since been broken in the lead-up to WWII.

    TakeFive - The figures are out and they are not good. It remains to be seen for the U.S. whether sequester/austerity will be countered by continued flight of money into a "safe" U.S.A.. For the rest of the world, this is undiluted bad news. And soon to come, there is the next chapter of the debt limit debate. This is like the cliffhanger serials at the old time movie theatres. Though, in real life, we don't really know whether we'll come out O.K..

    James - Four American lives taken by a non-governmental group as a greater reason for war than a long stated and rarely crossed "line'' committed by a tyrannical government. Now I know how the War of Jenkins' Ear occurred and was named. Let emotion reign!

    BlueOkie - There is no doubt that Obama's freshening of the paint on a 90 year old line has placed him and the U.S. in a bad spot. If he ''backs down'', he and his country look weak, and existing and would be dictators have one less limit on bad behavior. If he acts anyway, he will be accurately accused of not respecting the voice of the people, and by his limited action only enraging Assad.

    However, one should remember Libya, where openly stated plans for revenge by the Ghadaffi regime forced western countries into greater intervention on the rebel side. If Obama backs down, tyrannical bravado by the Syrian government may force western powers to act to prevent a greater bloodbath and a further destabilization of surrounding countries by an even greater refugee problem.

  • Why Picking A Stock To Hold Forever Is Total Folly: The Apple/Cisco Case [View article]
    I own one stock that I intend to hold forever. It's a regulated utility. If I am fortunate, it will cease to be cheap, and despite a gradually growing dividend, I will be compelled to sell it.

    Roger is right in that a forever stock still needs evaluation.

    Wm - It was that other Rochester company, Polaroid. But your point is well taken. Kodak did try to work around Polaroid's patents, but had to recall their system from the market by court order.
