    If it is really such a great investment, buy at $500, and if it goes to $450 buy more.

  • CVS to pull tobacco products  [View news story]
    There are lots of things CVS chooses not to sell. It is a private business that can carry whatever (legal) products it chooses. There are lots of other companies that also choose not to sell tobacco products and they do just fine - Whole Foods, for example. Prohibition? - the government is not involved, there is no constitutional amendment against tobacco. Black markets are usually reserved for illegal products, which tobacco may eventually become.

  • Bitcoin exchange chief arrested  [View news story]
    If the gun shop owner knows the buyer will commit homicide, or the car dealer sells to a drunk, then they are complicit. Bitcoin buyers and sellers have nothing to fear (except losing real money) from trading with reputable organizations, which Silk Road was not.

  • Canada at crossroads as pipeline opponents keep up the pressure  [View news story]
    Actually, it seems to me, the more oil we can get to China the better because it will reduce their reliance on coal which is dirtiest of all and polluting the entire earth.

  • Investors Should Steer Clear Of Intel  [View article]
    If you believe INTC will drop 12%, even though it pays a 4% dividend, why a 'hold' rating? Especially since you feel the 'bleakness' will last all next year? And especially in rising market, why would you not redeploy your money to something you have a 'buy' rating on? You can always come back to INTC in a year.

    I don't 'buy' your reasoning. I am long INTC, have been for a long time, and expect pleasant surprises in some of next year's quarterly results.

  • Early read on Black Friday winners and losers  [View news story]
    Kinda like mutually assured destruction. The ones that don't open lose out to the competition, but the ones that do lose on the cost of being open.

  • Ruth's Hospitality Group beats by $0.02, beats on revenue  [View news story]
    I was reminiscing (how a bad experience can last a lifetime): my daughter's graduation celebration 15 years ago at Ruth's Chris - our dinners had just been served when a drop of something fell onto her steak. We looked up and noticed a wet spot on the ceiling. The waiter was confused about what to do but then did offer to provide another entrée and then move our table away from the drip. We had to ask that we be moved to a different table. 'F' rating for building maintenance, 'F' rating for service, 'F' rating for thoughtfulness. We have never gone back. The message for retailers: sometimes you only get one chance to piss off a customer for life.

  • Oct ADP Jobs Report  [View news story]
    Republicans are doing everything in their power to sabotage job growth and the economy. The shutdown was just the latest example and will have lasting economic effects. I hope voters remember this next November.

  • Statoil pulls Maine offshore wind project  [View news story]
    But it's a political victory for the governor and that's what counts. Maybe a few cronies can step in now and fix things. Good luck with this 'project', Maine.

  • The Default Has Already Begun  [View article]
    Their only input was one series of torpedo volleys after another. Conservatives didn't want ACA then and don't want it now. And they will still do anything to torpedo it, including dragging the U.S. and world economy through the mud.

  • The Default Has Already Begun  [View article]
    What if the democrats proposed a spending bill that funded everything but weapons spending? Who would be blamed for the stalemate?
    ACA funding, approved by congress, the president, and the supreme court, is the source of house republican refusal to bring a clean spending bill, already passed by the senate, to a vote.

    It's a matter of record.
