  • Scanning The SA Family For Alpha: Rosenose [View article]
    By all means get paid. But I imagine some who write free articles for SA get "paid" when someone buys their newsletter, or pays them to manage their money; so providng free articles is advertising your expertise. I can't imagine anybody working that hard just for fun.

    I disagree. The editors here are way to sensitive--to the point where they impose their personal points of view-by redacting the views of others. Its like your prudish aunt stopping all discussion at Thanksgiving except about the weather. They over do it . They way over do it. I'll even say that some of these edictors abuse it.

    Help me out. Is there something more to the Lacey Act than this: Under this law, it is unlawful to import, export, sell, acquire, or purchase fish, wildlife or plants taken, possessed, transported, or sold: 1) in violation of U.S. or Indian law, or 2) in interstate or foreign commerce involving any fish, wildlife, or plants taken possessed or sold in violation of State or foreign law.

    The law covers all fish and wildlife and their parts or products, and plants protected by the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species and those protected by State law. Commercial guiding and outfitting are considered to be a sale under the provisions of the Act.

    Felony criminal sanctions are provided for violations involving imports or exports, or violations of a commercial nature in which the value of the wildlife is in excess of $350. A misdemeanor violation was established, with a fine of up to $10,000 and imprisonment of up to 1 year, or both. Civil penalties up to $10,000 were provided. However, the Criminal Fines Improvement Act of 1987 increased the fines under the Lacey Act for misdemeanors to a maximum of $100,000 for individuals and $200,000 for organizations. Maximum fines for felonies were increased to $250,000 for individuals and $500,000 for organizations.

    Because if not, It doesn't build much of a short case, in my opinion.

    As long as we're commenting on our preferences. I think this is an adult site. Don't be so PC. As an adult I like the Good the Bad and The Ugly. I can sort it out for myself. I don't like or need protection by censorship. Of course I'm an American--and I realize that some users and editors from other countries don't share my sensibility.

    We have had the same conversation ad infinitum--you think there is something brewing--I don't.

    Hypothetical--What if a young unknown Peter Lynch wrote an article touting a stock in which he was not invested--mainly because young people don't have all that much money. Would you not want to read that article and judge it on its merits? I would.

    Its childish to negotiate like a spoiled child.

  • Varoufakis promises to quit if Greeks vote for austerity [View news story]
    Very interesting speculation--but I think most people want a secure predictalbe stable matrix (the Eurozone) in which to live peaceful, uneventful lives. Therefore I think most Greeks want to remain in the Euro, and a fair settlement. I suspecct they trust fellow Europeans with their future more than Putin's Russia and the Chinese. After all, they can always renegotiate withthe next European leaders, evenif Merkel isn't giving them what they want now. Once you are out of the EU or part of Putin's orbit--there won't be any renegotianions.

    Help me out. A comparable forward P/E on HD is 18 to 20, right? IF you throw out all the dire predictions of lawsuits (the Bull case), then why is 13 such a high unreasonable P/E ? I like Cramer; but he is averse to engaging in controvery--LL is a controversial stock because there may be (I said may be) mislabeling and there may be (Isaid may be) insider trading--very controversial. But theBull case is that if anything was going to hit the fan--it would have done so by now. The Bears are expecting a Black Swan.

    I suspect back channels are still open. Merkel and Tsiparas both must retain a public stance; but chaos and suffering in Greece is unacceptable and Merkel knows the trouble will eventually come to roost on her doorstep. After the show and German elections expect an easing of the debt burden. Greece will stay and keep the Euro.

    No--to all 5. Authors on SA are conversation starters. No one can see the future. The comments that ensue can help gauge which way the crowd is likely to go, at least in the near term; which is important if you are trading (or playing poker).

    Catalysts No certification of any class action law suit---and short squeeze. Improvement in the house building industry same as you'd expect at HD and Maasco. true they will lose a big share of the hyperchondriac market--but those people won't be buying any flooring from anybody.

    Although Czarist Russia liberated Greece from the Ottomans--a lot of things have changed since 1830--for instance, among many other disasters--the Russian Revolution and the Greek Civil War of 1946--in which more Greeks died than in World War 11. Embracing the Russians or the Chinese now would be a big mistake for Greeks. They should bend on the austerity--but continue to plead thier case, chances are, after saving face-and elections in Germany--a kinder gentler policy will develop torward Greek debt repayment.

  • Twitter As An Activist Investor Target [View article]
    I would describe Facebook as a combination of "Girls Just want to Have Fun --Getting with Their Friends" Its not Zuckerbergs original concept; but he was smart enough to take it there. CanTwitter find an adapable visionary to lead andshape it into something profitable?

    They need some kind of "Twitter Tuner" interface that would allow the most technologically challengedperson in the world (me) to easily dial in and focus on my interestswhether it be sports, money, celebrities, whatever. What they have now is too hard to bother to learn and is overly conerned about squeezing the interface on to mobile devices. Have both kinds of interface--a shortcut mobil interface for young techies-and a bloated intuitive interface for desk top luddites like me. I'd love to follow politics real time--but Twitter makes me work too hard. Fix it. Older peopple have more spendable cash to buy things.
