  • McDonald's rolling out changes on both sides of the pond [View news story]
    Believe me, in Germany, there is no service...if they are going to have Germans waiting on me..I'm going to Burger King. One of the best thing about McDonald's , is I only have to interact with the employees on a 'give me that and here's your money' basis. I don't need another moment sitting without my food at McDonald's. Breakfast? German style breakfast? Fresh rolls, w├╝rst, yogurt, really good coffee? I won't be going to McDonald's.. I'll go to any of the thousands of places (in Berlin), or to the supermarket, bring it home, sit on the balcony and avoid it all. (I live in Berlin part time). McDonald's at Bahnhof until 5am...YES, that's what we love....and they have beer !!!

  • Magnum Hunter cut to Hold from Buy at Stifel [View news story]
    @jimcramer ... some have suggested piling on this guy on CNBC who has had the CEO on time and time again...MHR in trouble? ... I would like to see the CEO on CNBC again as well. I do think MHR is a hold...and perhaps a buy. I would like more information.

  • Vantage Drilling Is A Sell On Any Rally [View article]
    A statement such as, "They are fully booked for 2015 and are paying down debt'' for example, would be not at all correct?

  • Eagle Ford produces billionth barrel of oil [View news story]
    Saudi Arabia can break even at $10 U.S. Dollars a barrel. Keep buying their cheap oil, put all the money into Natgas/Hydrogen and REALLY give America 'Energy Independence. $100 U.S.Dollar oil is a JOKE !! When all the 'Baby Boomers' are dead and one will be caring about U.S. will be obsolete. Natgas is the easy export..let's start exporting it NOW. (build the ships). PS I'll also be dead and gone with the rest us Baby Boomers..but I'll be watching.

  • Gold miners rack up sharp gains as dollar slips [View news story]
    If I knew what I know..I would have bought $400K gold in 2007. But I didn't. Inflation is discussed as an absolute. In the USA, inflation has soared, but not on paper..but it's out there in housing (still), salaries, (still), food, and transportation. It depends where you live. A broadcast television report in Florida last night stated that the Tampa Bay area of Florida, has a middle class with the lowest income in the USA. I can tell you inside the Massachusetts 495 'Beltway', that is not the case. My point is only that it's too easy to generalize about things like inflation, when in fact there are many markets in many countries which effect it.

  • Vale: Short Interest Rising [View article]
    The dollar will drop once the USA and OPEC finishes punishing Russia. For the rest of it....holding VALE at under $9.00 USD is hardly a risk.

  • Vale SA: A Risky Play For Defensive Investors [View article]
    VALE at $8.83 Pre-market today in N.Y.(Nov.11,2014@08:21 EST). I did resist buying until under $10.00 and will be buying more under $9.00, as will many...but even under $9.00, I find myself wondering if I should wait for under $8.00. I do not consider the dividend anymore in my investment in VALE.

  • Vale reaches deal with China that expands large ore fleet [View news story]
    The X-Div date is just 3 weeks away..this 'China Deal' news was out during the trading day yesterday (26.9.2014) and the stock floundered around yearly lows. The risk of a substantial lowering of the rate of the dividend is real. Until they announce, for this upcoming dividend date, (not to be confused with previous announcements for the year) that they will pay a dividend and at what rate and when, this stock is going no where...again, only 3 weeks away..and it's just sitting there. I'd rather go in late with a bigger position, than go in now and be stuck with this as it goes below $10. The wild man on TV lost 17K earlier this year..went back in, and is down big time again. Not losing money is also a reasonable strategy.
