  • Facebook Is On A Winning Track [View article]
    Facebook is a simple way of staying attached at the hip. For some it's become an addiction, with 5 to 15 posts a day while playing FB games. For others it's the occasional visit, to post a selfie pic or browse through their page quickly. The teenagers don't like it because mom and dad have been joining up... which are making up the bulk of the new subscribers these days. And they have more money to spend.
    But unless you're interested in an add displayed, you won't bother clicking on it.
    So it's up to facebook to try and figure out what adds might be appealing to you.
    And if revenues are paying off for these companies to post adds, than facebook will continue to rack up the profits. And of course mobile allows you to access FB on the GO!

  • Facebook Is On A Winning Track [View article]
    The 3rd quarter FB results for 2013 were just as impressive and there was a lot of hype about another surge in price from the 2nd quarter, but for some reason the price was flat and then had a correction. Although it did initially have a quick spike up after hours, by the opening bell the next day it was back down again. Beware of too much hype, as the speculative manipulators are waiting for a quick fix and then dump it. This time around there wasn't as much hype about a rally, so it actually moved up and stayed up.

  • 7 Reasons Not To Sell 3D Systems [View article]
    If we are able to mass produce food and every other commodity in 3d printing, starvation will be a thing of the past...but that would be unchartered territory for the world economy.
    If everyone can print most everything they need, what would happen to manufacturing and retail ?

    My understanding is one day we will be able to print 3d cell structure. Does this mean we will be able to print human organs and... maybe even create our own Frankenstein monster...which certainly sounds pretty freaky! I guess almost anything will be possible in the future.

    Just to be aware it's a new technology, and just like when solar energy was the next big thing...it will probably have lots of bumps along the way.

  • Automakers want Britain to stay in the EU [View news story]
    Ford is threatening to pull their operations out of Britain if the secede from the EU. This is typical of the Big multi-national corporations these days, wanting to play politics.
    Well maybe the Brits should threaten to boycott Ford if they pull out of Britain and see how they like it.

  • Facebook's CEO Discusses Q3 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    My guess is ...these are high rolling frequency traders (Hedge Funds for example) flipping prices at the switch of a button... to make quick profits. Why the hell are they even allowed to trade after hours, when the majority of the average traders are out of the market at the End of the Day? With so few traders after hours, they can cause big swings in very short periods!

  • Facebook: $100 Billion In Sales Could Be Possible In 5 Years [View article]
    Facebook has become the gossip channel for the ladies. Of the list of facebook friends I have, half are men and half are women...yet almost 90% of the content on my wall are posted by women. Men spend far less time on facebook then women do. But this is still good for investors as women tend to like to shop more than man. I sold 1/2 my shares at $46 at my stop loss. Anticipating another surge in the stock price I recently repurchased at $49.50. hopefully I'm lucky,... but it's always a roll of the dice.

  • Shutdown, Debt Ceiling Prompt A Gold Market Sell-Off And Rebound? [View article]
    I believe the Fed and the current government are in bed together on this one. While the fed allows the big banks like JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs to make big profits by shorting the gold and silver markets (at the expense of long term investors), and paying down their debt, it keeps the dollar from collapsing into a tailspin and keeps inflation in check. Once the Gold bugs have been worn down and given up hope, and the dollar stabilizes... than the precious metals may once again begin their continuous ascent.

  • The Federal Reserve Surprises With 'No Taper' Announcement [View article]
    What a tangled economic web the Fed has created around the world with it's continues QE. Did the Fed even ever real have any intentions on tapering the QE ? Or was it just a play of words... to ease and then stimulate the economy once again by changing nothing. Very Clever in the short term if the stock market is any indication of prosperity. And where does all that extra money go (besides the Big Banks that seem to be running the show) that Bernanke is creating out of thin air and adding to our never ending national debt ?
    I don't believe the US will ever recover to take center stage again as an economic workhorse. The Baby Boomers will all eventually retire and then die off, displaced by the third world. Asia will take over the New Economic World Order as we pass the torch. They are already buying up everything around the world they can get there hands on! We will continue to add to our national debt until the bubble bursts, and then there is only one option left. That's national bankruptcy.
    And then we can start over again, but at a much lower standard of living.

    It's amazing how one man's random comments can have such an impact on world markets regardless of reality.

  • The Great Reflation [View article]
    As our once not so famous industrious leader G W Bush once tried to say...If you fool me once shame on you, If you fool me twice shame on me.
    Yes, We probably will be fooled again!

  • Gold Needs A New Catalyst [View article]
    If BRIC and other countries ever decide to create their own international trading currency, this could put pressure on the almighty US dollar and the EU, which in turn could push the price of precious metals up in the opposite direction.
