  • Indictment likely to come against a third former Petrobras exec [View news story]
    ECON 101---Supply and demand. Too much supply demand goes down and so does price. Crude oil is now a weapon of suicide and insanity. It seems the cartels that control crude oil continue to "pump their way out of too much crude." Suicide by crude. If demand world wide does not pick up---and I don;t see any increased demand---then it is only a question of when does the actual crude become so much that it can no longer be stored. At present rates of production, with no demand we run out of storage space in 6 months? Less than a year for sure. Somebody has to stop production or crude goes guess is as good as yours....$25. To buy oil for $25 is the proverbial buy of a lifetime. That's sanity of the insanity. Luck to all

  • Petrobras Likely To Report Disappointing Results Following Investigation Probe And Developments [View article]
    Wait, it's worse than that. There is absolutely no good news about anything the company does. Can you say death spiral. This is not a falling knife it is a falling chainsaw. That being said I want to buy it---Buy good companies that stink and this company stinks to high heaven. BPR will survive through bad management, scandal and political manipulations, plus the price of crude will not, nor can it stay at sub $60 for too long. (Every country---add them up---that relies on crude revenues would be in civil revolt, including the Saudis.) As the sage of Omaha said, buy when others are fearful. PBR would qualify has terrific (bad.) If PBR got down to $5 a share I would mortgage the children to buy. It would be a sign from God to buy. The proverbial buy of a lifetime. BUY...but not now. With PBR it is going to get real dark right before it gets...really dark.

  • After Four Years Of The Chevy Volt, What's The Verdict? [View article]
    Anton, without subsidies in ALL parts of the economy---can you say energy---the economy would falter. Business in America is addicted to tax breaks, subsidies and entitlements to profit. The VOLT is ahead of its time. Gas is not going down to $1 a gallon. Americans for some strange reason think that cheap gasoline is a birthright and act like it. Run those numbers again when gas is $5 a gallon.

  • CYREN: Still Waiting For New Product Uptake [View article]
    I am taking a position in CYRN. Internet security has a big future and consolidation in the business seems likely. I can't see CYRN being bought out for a couple of years but it will happens unless management fails to deliver. They are just beginning. I am willing to wait 6 month to 2 years to give them chance to make me rich...or something like that.

  • Fight For Physical Gold Has Started (Just Like 1968) [View article]
    Peter, I mentioned this below and I will say this to you. I am also a student of history. Tell me good sir, when in history has a people, civilization, survived by having gold? Why gold? Why not silver or land or water or guns or intelligence or a damn good horse? Gold like ANYTHING is only valued by what we, people, put on it. Sorry but if you want to own gold go ahead, it will not save you or countries. Gold is not a Savior.

  • Fight For Physical Gold Has Started (Just Like 1968) [View article]
    Yawn. God bugs, well...they all have this macabre scenario that the world ends and only the folks with gold survive. I'm sorry but the gold scenario is for kneejerk conservatives and doom and gloom investors. Tell me, when in the history of mankind has gold been the deciding factor for a civilization and people in their survival? I missed that in history class.

  • How The Portugal Telecom Mispricing Went And Other Musings [View article]
    Well, we are almost 2 months removed from the article and PT is....down a little, up some, about the same. With the much awaited "correction heard 'round the world" I say PT goes to new lows. Timing is everything. And so is luck.

  • Anatomy Of A Market Bubble [View article]
    One person's "extensive research" is another person's "the article was too long and had way too many charts."
    All I can say it is easier to see a bubble after it has busted. The above posts are right about "doom and gloom." Case in point, the cons here have been calling for "hyper inflation" and the "abyss of the FED" for 6 years and one of these Centuries they might be right. If all this FED money is so bad and "bubbly" when is the END OF THE WORLD?

  • Did Mark Carney Derail Scotland's Dalliance With Independence? [View article]
    The Brits will live if Scotland the brave moves away. Scotland will also live, but not before trials and tribulations, especially if the large scale of jobs are lost. Never count out the clever Scots. I say the unite vote fails by less then 10,000.

  • Deliver Us From Irrelevancy [View article]
    All I can say is this "market correction" has been called so many times and WE ALL KNOW it is maybe it is not...for awhile. The only thing predicted more is the END OF THE WORLD by the cons here and the QE. They are just certain when the FED raises rates we will see runaway inflation and chaos. MY reaction is YAWN. The FED has been right all along. Sure they will raise rates but it will not go from .05% to 6% in a quarter. All those con wackos who went into gold got what they deserve for their ignorance and irrational hatred of all things government and liberal. Gee, I though money and the stock market was apolitical.

  • Argentina's Default New Government Strategy: How Will Prices Move? [View article]
    Once politics enters the equation, it is hard to predict outcomes. Argentina has to do something and they are. The bond holders will continue to press the country for payment. Eternal economic factors may force the hand of the government. Just how bad can inflation get? Then once you get, again, radical politics---sure to happen in any economic downturn----it doesn't look good for Argentina short term. I would wait and see. It always is darkest---right before---- it gets really dark.

  • FireEye: Price Matters [View article]
    FEYE, plenty of potential in cyber security, but maybe wait until valuation gets lower. I watch this stock and it is up or down 3%-4% a day. When we have the over called BIG correction maybe then. Another very small cyber company I like is CYRN. They come out of Israel and are moving into Europe and Japan. Check them out. Like FEYE they are speculation but 1/10th the price.

  • GASFRAC Energy Services' (GSFVF) CEO James Hill on Q1 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Somebody major would have to contract with them for the needle to move on this stock and company. Maybe if they got below 68 cents would I consider a buy.

  • Amaya Gaming Warrant Analysis - Learning About Leverage [View article]
    The gambling industry is in a down mode, I would stay away from gambling stocks altogether. See NJ casinos. I mean how many Indian casinos can be built in the USA before the pie cannot be sliced any bigger.

  • Brazilian Stocks: The Bull Market Is Just Starting [View article]
    Elections next month will affect ANY and ALL stocks. The market is telling me they are happy with the present administration getting reelected. If there is an upset, watch out. I'd say hold, too risky.
