    @DavidL Mo:

    So who is responsible for creating this domino mess that might lead to 'Doom's Day'? Huh?

    Remember the popular Patrick McGoohan TV's series Prisoner in the 60's?

    Quoting from a website: "...In The Prisoner we are thus brought face to face with the idea that it is we who create the Big Other that controls us. That while we experience this Big Other as separate from us, existing independently of us, and baring over us, it is nonetheless our own creation. We are oppressed by a foreign power that is our own. We are both number six and number one, oppressor and the one being oppressed. We are a divided subject who creates a fiction that imprisons us and demands our loyalty...".

    All of us in this planet are the culprits, you and myself included.

    The EU pending lawsuit is a serious matter with ramifications. Legal prosecution is something not to be taken lightly and certainly not to be treated with trivial response.

  • Tesla Motors preps for energy storage launch [View news story]
    The 'Big Boys' don't want to sell storage batteries that would cut into their bread-and-button profits in selling generators and turbines. Energy conservation is one thing that they don't care much; look how many decades and decades that GE has been selling energy-guzzling light bulbs when they know damned well they had the technology and the know how to make more energy-efficient light bulbs, till being threatened by the invention and introduction of the LED bulbs.

    You overestimated these trolls, Sir.

    All those who responded to my original post, I do apologize for an inadvertent error in my quotation from the Scriptures.

    It wasn't Matthew 6:15, it should be Matthew 9:24, as follows:

    "...And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief". KJV Matthew 9:24

    The reason for my error is because Matthew 6:15 has been circulating in my German head of late, and which is the one I most treasure and find releasing and healing from the Scriptures personally. 6:15 is re-quoted below:

    "...But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses". Matthew 6:15 KJV

    Further, according to my own humble research in several languages of translation of this verse, notably the Hebrew, German, and other Oriental languages, the verse should be read as:

    "...But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, your Father in Heaven will absolutely and surely (both absolutely and surely in italics) not forgive your trespasses".

    Folks, remember this verse often, and practice it often too. And you will then find peace on earth.

    Amen and Amen

    @moxi

    Thank you for your due diligence in compiling this list of 21 so-called achievements of GOOG. I don't disagree with you that they look stellar indeed.

    All of those 21 'Things' belong to the past. They are Yesterday's delight. Like the folksong sung by Roger Whittaker, "Yesterday is Gone, and Tomorrow may never be Mine", the future is what counts, not the past.

    If GOOG is so great then why is the stock price so abysmal? One most trusted and celebrated, and highest-ranked discount broker (name withheld because of proprietary agreement on the account), they won't even be able to give a grade (out of 10), citing reason of high degree of Uncertainty with this company and its stock.

    So much so for GOOG --- A Value Trap it IS! And its bloated price is a juicy well-done roasted beef ready!

    By my own reading, this stock is not only NOT a short candidate, but is bullish, quite bullish. Why? The chart tells it all, the 'Vertically Up' phenomenon is still not there yet. It will run higher, much higher, in the days and weeks ahead.

    Re: "...Out with the old and in with the new, it has always worked this way in the past in this Country it's the American way, and nothing has changed...", taken out of context, this comment surely would not apply to our two political parties. LOL! ROFL!

  • Apple: Thanks For The Stock Boost; Now How Bout More Cash? [View article]
    @brilliant

    By 'Monday's closing' do you mean the 4 P.M. regular closing time or the Extended Trading hours' 7.59 P.M.? Please clarify because I have done what you advised in the 'selling' so far.

    Good, 'affordable' price so I did acquire more. Thanks to the CNBC pundits. They did me a favor.

    GOOG seems to be pretty lame of late and no longer to be that Wonder Boy with the Midas Touch around anymore. How come? Is it because the leadership has fallen asleep on the wheels, or just become complacent, or become frozen at the glare of the headlight of an arriving AAPL car?

    Wake up NOW!

  • The Real Battle Facing McDonald's Has Nothing To Do With Its Food [View article]
    Obviously MCD is in a bit of trouble, generally speaking, as the myriad of other competing fast food rivals are beginning to catch up. Besides, consumers who used to frequent MCD may prefer trying out a somewhat difference taste at the SUB, Wendy, Burger King, and numerous others up and coming. The so-called 'Exodus' of MCD employees is certainly a contributing factor.

    I foresee MCD stock price to be sideways and flat for the short- and medium-term.

    I'm personally not a fan with shorting. Most shorting opportunities are very short in duration and are risky too.

    I would rather stay long; there are lots of long opportunities. The human tendency is also hope for the best and which is what keep them going in this crazy world. I might speculate that it is due to some sort of hormone in their brain. Hope generates optimism and often overrides fear and despair in time. The resiliency of the human race over the centuries bear out this conjecture.

    Good luck with shorting!

    No need to buying it; just massacre it instead, easy solution, easy play...It is much cleaner, no need to laying off the people and incurring severance restructuring cost, plus saving someone from self-immolation too from hearbreak, you know who I mean...
