  • Berkshire returns to energy sector with $4.5B stake in Phillips 66 [View news story]
    If she does win with all the scandals surrounding her, then I have no hope for this country in the long run. Voters will have given her free reign to do whatever she wants, the law be damned.

  • Morgan Stanley's 27 stocks to buy on the dip [View news story]
    b3player- Who's views aren't? How about Steve Liesman? Your comment about Santelli tells me that you probably like the color of Liesman's politics.

  • Morgan Stanley's 27 stocks to buy on the dip [View news story]
    Bobcat9- Rick Santelli has to shout because he is on the floor in Chicago where there is plenty of noise around him. You tend to speak in the volume that you believe is necessary to get above the surrounding noise.

  • Retirement Strategy: Did You Freak This Week? [View article]
    Dale, I'm a retiree with a DG portfolio, yet I didn't stand by and do nothing. A few weeks ago I purchased October puts on 6 of my DG stocks with some of the large cash position remaining in my accounts. This week I harvested about half of those puts to the tune of several thousand in gains. The remaining puts are still up substantially, but those underlying stocks are still under performing even after the rally, so will wait on those. Also, picked up some more T on the decline.

    Sure, the majority of the portfolio may be "already set", but if you maintain sufficient cash, you can always take advantage of special situations.

  • Today’s big move in oil little more than short-covering, observers say [View news story]
    I think the Senate can stop this thing from even getting to a vote, with most Dems supporting it.

  • Icahn reports 8.46% stake in Freeport McMoRan; shares +20% AH [View news story]
    Dow Jones is reporting that Icahn's 8.46% stake amounts to some 17+ million shares. Given that there are 1 billion shares outstanding, wouldn't his stake be 84+ million shares?

  • Relief rally evaporates as anxiety remains high [View news story]
    Is this the beginning of vindication for David Stockman and all those bearish articles over the past few years? I guess a broken clock is still right a couple of times each day.

  • Ten Things I Would Have Done If I Were A Seasoned Expert [View article]
    I think this market decline has awakened many to the benefits of placing limit buy orders 10% or more below the market as GTC orders or as day orders (including extended hours trading) prior to the market's opening. It is one way the retail investor can deal with the high speed and high frequency traders who have been scooping up these cheap shares.

  • Notable earnings before Wednesday’s open [View news story]
    I tried to tell them that in my post above. SDRL also doesn't report until Thursday. This News item originally said "before Thursday's open" before they changed it to Wednesday. All of these listed report on Thursday. The editing on SA is getting worse by the day.

  • Is It Safe? [View article]
    It must be safe now as I just saw a large headline cross the screen on CNBC that said the S&P 500 is no longer in correction mode. /sarcasm off
