  • Tech ETF IBB Brings Plenty Of Risk But It Fits Nicely In A Portfolio [View article]
    To the Author ColoradoWMF:

    Thanks for a well-thought and well-researched article that I find very helpful as an IBB investor right on the mark as your described.

    I also happen to own some of the popular Fidelity Biotechnology Mutual Fund FBIOX that appears to be tracking and matching IBB fairy closely. FBIOX is presently a 5-STAR performer (Morningstar *****); so is IBB rated ***** by Morningstar as well now. Would you be able to enlighten me the major differences between FBIOX and IBB, and the relative merits and pitfalls between the two?

    Many humble thanks in advance, bowing 90 degrees...

  • Central Banks And Economic Reports Keep Bull Market Alive [View article]
    Great Swami:

    I don't disagree with your argument; as a matter of fact I would agree with your point 50%. Again, Mr. Bush, as Chief Executive, one of his primary and most paramount responsibilities is to protecting this nation, amongst many threats, from economic collapse. We almost died. He got into the WH in 2000. He had eight years to undo what you described as excesses in the housing market.

    He did not do it. Neither has he accepted responsibility for failure to act and apologize to the American people. These are facts that cannot be erased. History will judge him accordingly.

    Any form of Blame Game mindset is to me regressive, destructive, and even psychotic.

    I have a little sop story to tell: my brother blamed my Dad for coercing him to become a medical doctor. He hated that career, so he spent his life blaming my Dad. He did young.

    So tragic is Blame!

  • Greeks head to the polls [View news story]
    Better still, Congress should consider opening up an emergency immigration quota of 20,000 for Greek with net worth over $5M to come over here; highly educated and professionals and entrepreneurs are also welcome.

    Come to Fortress America to start a New Life NOW!

    This saga is just noise; based on past experience, it will never amount to much.

    Simply ignore it, and keep trucking on, and on...

  • There's A Lot Of Value In The Information Technology Sector: The S&P 500 2015: Part 3 [View article]
    Dear Chuck,

    Advice from an investment stalwart of your caliber is most valuable, and welcome. Thanks.

    I would like to tender one observation. For the little guys with a less than a 9-figure portfolio (myself included), John Bogie, founder of Vanguard, and pioneer of index funds, had this advice: "Forget about buying individual stocks, buy index funds" http://onforb.es/1L80ZWn

    Thanks again for your taking the time to responding to my query.

  • Central Banks And Economic Reports Keep Bull Market Alive [View article]
    Disagree. I can't recall the link at the moment. It was reported that in the heat of the Housing Bubble bubbling in 2007 several high-ranking officials from the Carolinas traveled to the White House and sat down with high-ranking White House officials to telling them of their concerns about the impending collapse of the over-heated housing market.

    It was ignored; simply fallen on deaf ears. Good Old George your favorite was the Man at the Helm, who should take ultimate responsibility.

    The facts are iron-clad;I respectively and whole-heartedly disagree with your opinion.

    Moon,

    I am with you, corruption is rampant and getting more and more rampant day by day. The present scenario you just described is comparable to former president Mr. George W. Bush tacitly encouraging the Housing Bubble from 2000 to late 2008, with the ensuing Bubble Burst the Great Recession of 2008-2009.


    Western World under the leadership of Mr. Barack Obama is no different in this regard, pumping up thee stock market from 2009-present with QE's and ZIRP.

    Of note though, Mr. Moon, it is still a little too early for the present Bubble to bursting... It may in my view have another year or even 18 months to go...When the stage is set for another Chief Executive to taking over the helm, as always...

    Enjoy the Bull for now while you may, Moon...

  • Observations On A Rallying VIX And SPY [View article]
    Some say that VIX may rise with ZRIZA and Congress Budget Battle on the horizon. But given past experience, these may never amount to much rather than just noise. My private proprietary signals are for Backwardation and therefore continuing mild bullish trend over the medium-term (~6 months) albeit with the bullishness focused on certain select sectors...

    You may well be correct; astute comment. I guess they are well-advanced in hardware design, but lagging badly in OS and great software.
