  • Fannie Mae Privileged Info Could Threaten Financial Markets: Sweeney [View article]
    Hmmm... the government steals private citizen's investments, and now hides behind a veil of secrecy all for the great and noble cause of protecting financial markets? From what? Knowing that the government can steal with impunity? I am SURE that there are things the Obama administration does not want brought out in the open light of day here. Let the fireworks begin!

  • Don't Bet On A Quick Rebound For Rite Aid [View article]
    Popeye, is it possible that your experience at Rite Aid isn't representative of most? I have never had anyone be rude or less than helpful at any Rite Aid store. I just don't get your constant bashing here. If it's all so bad, why not short?

  • Sorry Dorothy, Micron Will Not See $50 [View article]
    The saving grace of MU (now I'm back in) is that weekly calls pay hugely. Bought in today, sold, bought it back, sold next friday's $29 call, protected myself down to 27.50. That's how I'm playing MU.

    I think the value is there for runs up to the low 30's, but this is a tough market and will remain volatile. Unfortunately, I got nailed pretty good after buying at 32. Fortunately, I made it all back in a few days on beaten down energy stocks. So back to picking up where I left off with MU.

  • Bullard suggests delaying end to QE [View news story]
    The fed has to take into consideration the most current data. No inflation means no rate rise. With oil dropping, there will be no inflation. Time to buy back in, imo. The whole world will be trying to stimulate.

  • Ebola update: Texas patient dies [View news story]
    Perhaps the guy should have been a bit more forthcoming initially and told the doctors and nurses he had been where there was an Ebola virus outbreak. Rather than expecting whatever was wrong with him to be diagnosed immediately, or for the nurses to know where Ebola was worldwide. Treatment was started late because of this. Some of it was his own stupidity. Medical people are extremely busy with staffing ratios and if you don't help them quickly connect all the dots, you might have a bad outcome.

    I wouldn't give Obama too much credit for a recovery here. He could care less than a rat's behind about destroying what people have worked hard for their whole lives to build in order to give it to his constituency in the form of freebie handouts. Talk to someone making 60k self employed who is expected to pay 700 to 800 a month for insurance and then eat a 6k deductible. Talk the the shareholders of Fannie and Freddie who have zombie shares thanks to an illegal profit sweep - even after the government was repaid in full. Talk to the shareholders of financial institutions who have payed huge amounts of their investments in the form of DOJ robbery for crimes committed by people who walked out with millions and live in gated communities. The goal here is liquidation of the middle class.

    Come on now, I've gone to all the trouble to get ready for when the zombies are storming my gate. You mean the end isn't here?

  • Bank of America +1.2% after earnings beat [View news story]
    If BAC was able to eat the DOJ settlement so quickly ... wait for the next few earnings calls. We are headed upward. (though not in today's panic stricken market).

    Wealth will soon be measured in bullets and food. Now all we need is a serious Ebola outbreak. Not really (but if the zombie disease strikes, look out!).

  • Bank of America beats by $0.08, beats on revenue [View news story]
    Now, this just isn't any fun for the detractors of this ethically challenged bank! However, as someone who actually owns stock and options, I think it's great :).

    I have it from an inside source that BAC has been stealing tooth fairy money from under kid's pillows....

  • LINN Energy: Recent Correction Closes Valuation Gap [View article]
    Of course. there are political motives working in the background. Obama couldn't possibly care anything less about destroying investors. We have no idea what deals are made by our government.

  • LINN Energy: Recent Correction Closes Valuation Gap [View article]
    I bought LNCO today. If they don't cut the distribution in the next year, I'll have 18.50 in this after a 2.90 dividend (or return of capital, whatever you want to call it). I think surely the winds will blow in a different direction at some point and there will be a nice pop here. In the meantime, I count on LNCO's hedging to preserve value.

    All i can say is if the new ceo is Tom Ward and they are buying some of his property in the Mississippi Lime, i'm selling the instant I find out about it. Surely Ross and company aren't that dumb.
