    Pure genius. It's almost like they did it on purpose! I wonder if they still have to pay for the spot?

    Nice! Just like McDonalds and all these other huge Dow companies. If you can't organically grow EPS, buy back shares!

  • Paul Ryan: Ideas for reducing poverty [View news story]
    Best idea in Ryan's list is government funding for job training.

    Get people skills they need to get a decent job. We are constantly hearing from companies that there aren't enough skilled workers to fill jobs.

    I think this is a great idea and should be liked on both sides of the aisle.

    Only 0.2% away from the magic 6.5% level.

  • Negotiators reach deal over cutting food stamps [View news story]
    OK so that is approximately $1B per year in cuts.

    The 2014 defense budget spends $1.44B PER DAY. Shouldn't we be able to trim less than one days worth of defense budget so people don't have to go hungry?

    We also spend $6B/year in congressional pay and benefits. With their recent performance seems like that's a good area for some cuts.

  • Fluidigm: 4 Different Insiders Have Sold Shares During The Last 30 Days [View article]
    Hi Markus,

    You seem to be writing alot of articles about intensive selling and not so much buying. Is this a shift in your focus or is it a trend in the data?

    What are you seeing? In my normal screens the pace of insider buying seems to have slowed, even for this time of year with the earning periods and everything.

  • Facebook dominates U.S. social media use; LinkedIn's demographics favorable [View news story]
    Facebook what's that? Haven't used it in so long I don't even remember what it looks like!

    Sorry I just don't see a long term future in stocks like Facebook and LinkedIn as there won't be enough new users. Not unless Zuck can figure out how to make monkeys sign up.
