  • Upshift time for Tesla Motors on Model 3 and China  [View news story]
    "The official unveiling of the Model 3 is expected to occur at the Geneva Motor Show between March 3 through March 13, although pushing release dates back isn't an unknown phenomenon for Tesla."

    Not sure if this was meant to be sarcastic but I found this line to be hilarious.

    "There has been no news about the model X except that is it pretty much the best vehicle ever made. "

    The market does not share your belief.

  • Gundlach: Junk issuance likely to collapse  [View news story]
    Is there a guilt by association? Do LQD and other high quality bonds get caught up in the downdraft?

    Are treasuries the only real safe holding?

    I have been holding DBLTX & DBLFX since 2011 and the performance has been excellent so I still have a lot of confidence in Gundlach.

    My Capital One account also has a similar feature for ATM's. I also use Etrade and Scotrade banking in addition to AMEX online savings which has had an attractive 0.9% savings rate for years.

  • Barron's Roundtable: Gundlach pitches Annaly Capital  [View news story]
    I feel sorry for you guys. I almost pulled the trigger at $18 as well but waited and then I was shocked when I saw it at $14. Still I waited and then I finally pulled the trigger at $9.78 thinking it was a no-brainer.

    I still think that at this price it's a great deal but maybe the economy here and worldwide is a lot worse then what we are being told by the pundits.

    However, I still think this is a long-term play and maybe you might want to average down your cost base and increase your yield if you can stomach it.

  • Nasty post-earnings price action in BofA  [View news story]

    I am amazed at the huge drawdown in BAC that has occurred from its 52 week high, almost without comment and without notice. I mean I was just looking at it not that long ago when it hit $18. Wow!

    Even at this price the dividend yield is pathetic.

    It's almost like BAC is anticipating a total collapse in the economy. How can the economy be anything other than dire when one of the largest consumer banks in the world is selling off like this?

    Somebody knows something.

    Interesting I thought there was typo with the word "profit" being used in connection with TSLA. However consensus calls for EPS of 11 cents in Q4 2015. Not sure what the definition of EPS is used in conjunction with TSLA perhaps someone who knows about it can explain.

    What I am most curious about is the cash-flow and burn and I haven't seen any estimates for that yet. Going purely on trend I would expect negative burn of another $400 million this quarter putting remaining cash holdings way back into the danger zone again.

    Funny nary a peep regarding TSLA energy! Remember last year when it was touted as the biggest opportunity and not reflected in the valuation?

    Last week the drawdown in the price felt like a panic!

    Even I felt like selling.

    Long NLY.

  • Uber cuts prices in price war with Lyft  [View news story]
    I think we can rename these mythical creatures ZIRPicorns in honor of the FED.

    Interestingly the party might be over, the 30% decline in VC funding in Q4 last year was dramatic and means there all still plenty of mouths to feed and fewer mothers to feed them. IPO's are dead so nowhere to go but down.

    I was a Dotcommer (yes way back then) and I recall many of the same crazy behaviors just before the fall - "First Mover Advantage", eyeballs and pageviews were the new profit - history rhymes.
