  • CVS Will Lose Billions In Revenue Having No Smokes For Sale [View article]
    There is no "safe" alternative. Nicotine is a terrible substance, no matter how you consume it. Even nicotine patches can hinder cancer treatments.

    It's not as bad, but still dangerous to consume nicotine.

  • Arch Coal Still Looking For Light At The End Of The Tunnel [View article]
    This is beyond pitiful. Just bought ANR again at 2.59. At some point, a buyout by a company from India makes sense. I'm selling at 2.62. Hoping for a nice breakfast. The saga goes on but I can't fathom the crash here. ACI is no better off.

    Did it again this am. made another $69 on ANR. bought and sold BTU, made another $200. Just bought BTU at 13.02, gonna hold this a while.

    I traded ANR when it was $10, been way upside down on it a few times. Still managed to trade my way out, but by the skin of my teeth, and made a few bucks. This has been a horrible investment for most.

    Actually, i sold for 3.02 after the bell the very day I bought it, I think I made 60 bucks. And I bought at 2.66 and sold at 2.70, made $119. (ANR trades)

    We are approaching a point where one can invest in coal, because the sell off is becoming overdone. I will buy BTU for that.

    For Arch coal, I'm afraid that the light at the end of the tunnel is another oncoming train.

  • Seadrill: Sell-Off Is Overdone [View article]
    While I won't argue the main point (sell off being overdone), it could get even more overdone. One merely has to look all over the energy sector to find companies at heretofore unfathomable lows. Any stock that has weak fundamentals can get further hammered in this market.

    Look at BTU, XCO, etc.

    Regarded, I'd like to welcome you to the dark side :). BAC to $22 or so is my belief. I would be very surprised at $25 or more, but delighted nonetheless. If it gets to $30, i'll pee my panties.

    No matter what, I'm holding to at least around this time next year as getting taxed at my full marginal rate is a real downer. My plan for next year is to work 1 day a week and take a big capital gain at a lower rate. It's gonna be a lot of fun :).

    Best wishes for your investment success.

  • Barron's And Goldman Sachs Say Buy Bank Of America [View article]
    Some of those who are Ivy League educated think it's going to 10 before it hits 20, and that won't be any fun, especially for those who have fun trashing BAC.

    Alas, I am on the hapless ship of under educated fools who have bought BAC options up to the hilt. When I am dressed in a barrel and living under a bridge, it's going to be tough. Either that, or I could profit a cool $600k as BAC pushes $25.

  • Seadrill Ltd: When Will The Pain End? [View article]
    No one is trashing Seadrill as a company, or it's management. We are merely commenting on the environment and what investment strategy makes sense. Most of the resource related stocks (producers and their suppliers) are under immense pressure because in better times management leveraged in order to increase production because demand was unlimited and prices would continue an upward trajectory. We all know those assumptions didn't pan out.

    If you're looking for a support group, I'd suggest you look elsewhere. No matter what you or I type here, we won't affect the market by even a penny. However, someone who is considering this investment is better off reading multiple perspectives. Good luck in your investing.

    Look at what has happened to gas/oil and coal stocks in the last month. Rest assured, you are not alone. It is widespread.

    That's a dead on assessment of this industry. Why invest in what are clearly bad times?

    Well, I am already a liar. Just bought a couple thousand shares of ANR after I saw how they had dropped so disproportionately relative to the other coal producers. I try to make $100 on a trade like this for lunch money :). I say ANR, long and strong to 3.04 :).
