  • Why You Should Sell 3D Systems And Buy Stratasys [View article]
    Sometimes and often wrongly, people think having an opinion makes the commenter an expert.

  • Earliest Phase Of A Bear Market: When Good News Becomes Bad [View article]
    Could you say that since 2009, the large number of minor corrections of say 3% to 6% or more have served to even out the markets? This also might be the result of improvements in the speed of electronic trading and smarter investors who don't follow the herd, right? Of course, maybe somewhere  the sky can fall, and we can have a real depression. Most problems are expected, it's the unexpected that really throws the market. I feel your 'two clear features' are weak. Smart investors, to me, do not buy or sell all the stocks in large volumes. it's a pickers market and with good timing people can make money. I'm not good at that, but I getting better I hope. My stomach is too weak to be a regular trader so I rather be a smart investor. Thanks for your article.

  • High-Yielding General Electric Should Provide A Higher Yield Soon [View article]
    Has anyone noticed that the timing of many articles are hype to steady stock prices and seem to be guesses or best estimates of the future? Of course, the Boards of Directors and Executives are not overpaid in the majority of companies; but, I do feel that in the best interest of both the company and the nation, the SEC should be clamping down of financial abuses of powerful people who forget that they would not be where they are without the employees of their respective companies. The GAO should have more control for financial abuses of mismanagement by the government and Congress. Thank goodness we have a lame duck in the White House. Two terms is more than enough for any politician.

  • Why You Should Sell 3D Systems And Buy Stratasys [View article]


    This is an article the shorts would write about either company. At least DDD makes money and is growing no matter what anyone says. It always take time
    to digest other companies into the buying company and add future profits onto the bottom line, Who buys companies to lose money on? Not honest companies I am sure.

    DDD is earning money, O.K. the p/e is high, but that is better than SYSS with no p/e. 40 companies were brought for a reason or many reasons that should pay off in the future. The shorts either have to hype companies for getting a better return when they put the companies down so unwise investors sell. A pump and dump with options. These are the playthings of the shorts in the market.

  • GE: Fair Value Is About $35 [View article]
    How easy you forget, with snow no one was shopping on the east coast therefore employment for the holidays was almost nil. And I doubt that watching the markets might be your thing. The mood of the nation or its confidence does change with little things that make up our lives like the weather, or what the government is or is not doing.

  • GE: Fair Value Is About $35 [View article]
    First we had a bad winter on the east coast so lower returns on stocks for the early part of 2014, then the small wars to cause investors to be hang back from the markets, and of course, summer in the northern hemisphere or in other words, our summer break now. The markets are usually slow in the summer. For GE to move, the company needs to strike oil or really with the help of R&D start being an electric internet sensor wireless company for homes, businesses, and transportation as I believe they do with their jet engines to tell how they are working. GE needs to work on beinning the best at what they can do as well as making a profit that rewards the shareholders and employees. Stay ahead of the competition and benefit from thinking where R&D can take the world.

  • Boeing -1% as McCarthy calls for letting U.S. Export-Import Bank expire [View news story]
    Don't GE and Boeing have their own financial arms to handle these loans for trains and planes for most of their sales and let questionable loans be handled or difficult loans be handled by the EX/IM band, especially where the U.S. government (who knows who?) made promises to supply goods, equipment, even arms to some foreign country . I just am making a fast comment and really
    can't prove this offhand. I thought these companies kept their finances in house? We can not afford to support the world anymore can we?

  • The Next Innovation From InvenSense [View article]
    I won't say this is the case with INVN, but there are some? Boards of Directors and upper management who feather their nests with if not millions of shares, maybe hundreds of thousands share of their companies. Here the little shareholders lose, right? That is why the SEC is to know how many share the major shareholders hold and their buys and sells are a matter of records for the protection of the market, the company, other shareholders, and the public at large. I would think that there should be some reason for buys or selling of shares also indicated as a matter of record somewhere too.
    Overall, I do trust the stock market; but the criminal elements in our society from the bad politicians, anti-business types, left leaning anti-democratic educators, and the out and out crooks that are chipping away at our 'Bill of Rights', and that leaves out those religions that want to jam their religion on all of us and do away with my favorite, 'freedom of thought'.
    Best thoughts for all those in the military fighting to preserve our freedoms and our Vets, 'Happy 4th of July'.

  • 3D Systems: Bottomed Out And Rallying. Here's How To Maximize Gains [View article]
    In some ways comments become too much talk and not enough straight thinking, all too involved without real answers. Do winners and losers really plan ahead or as some experts say it is 'luck with a dart board'.

    I brought DDD on the way down, now I will buy on the way up. It a matter of timing I have to work on, though I did get in earlier so I'm not too bad off. I always like this good news as it backs up my first buying decision for this stock.

    40,000 shares of how many does this Director hold now, did he or she sell 5% or 50% or more of their holdings? That's the real question, and does anyone the Director's reason(s) for the sale. Everyone loves to take profits when the time is right or they need a new overpriced car, or some status item for their image.

  • 3D Systems: Autodesk's Initiative Could Transform Printer Makers Into Plastic Box Makers [View article]
    This does sound like a lot of hype on many sides naturally for profit and this is 'sell in May.....'. Your article doesn't seem to get behind what the real purpose of these companies is? The bottom line, new growing companies invest in themselves for the future. Work those numbers up showing recent activities of acquiring new companies and I would not be too worried but it does pay to be careful.

  • Chevron is first global oil major seeking Pemex partnership [View news story]
    There are dangers in any partnership that are lacking in the concepts of honesty, fairness, and the 'rule of law'. Of course these concepts also must be included with the pride that comes from private ownership of stock, rewards of dividends, and the knowledge that one's country's people will be better off as the economy enriches its people. The national oil companies should be owned by the people, not by the church or state. Here's an idea, taxpayers in those countries could be given shares of stock in their oil companies based on how much they paid in taxes in a given year, drawn out of a hat. CVX may need to tread lightly especially at first since in my opinion, Mexico and Argentina have been known as 'sink holes'. 'Look before you leap'
