  • Buy This High Dividend Stock Yielding Over 8% As A Play On The World's Best Economy [View article]
    How you gone and done it. You have named this socialist country as one of the best. The arch conservatives here have no response to that because they all believe that ONLY capitalist countries have a thriving economy. Those tea bggers are quick to point to the Venezuelas of the world that has that Oooooo EVIL socialism, but fail to mention any of the countries like Denmark, Norway and Finland, not to mention the big daddy socialist country China. Speaking of Norway, they are going to be hurt by low oil prices and (maybe) a crippling strike by those oil workers.

  • UK North Sea workers give overwhelming support for strike ballot, unions say [View news story]
    I bet you believe that it should be profits before workers. You need to respect labor and not see the workers as expendable. Econ 101 talks about that. Blaming union is laughable and lazy, but hey, conservatism always looks for the easy solution---- blaming workers and government for all ills. The company can do no wrong, right? Go back to school and repeat Econ 101.

    Larry, you post made no sense. None. Mel Brooks line does not fit the story. The company is the king. The line about the one-eyed man was also inaccurate. It is like you heard these two lines and just used them because you thought they were funny. So you are for profits above workers?

    Profits before people? I love you conservatives, you all think you are going to be rich. LOL. No union wants a strike.

    Spoken like a true conservative. Bravo. Yea, the company is always right and profits before people. I dare say you are probably for slavery because it is cheap labor and more efficient. And you conservatives think you can run the country?

  • Details on the GM Volt recall [View news story]
    I think a carbon monoxide death is nature's way of eliminating the dumb people from the gene pool. People REALLY don't know this. Really?

  • Petrobras CEO Resigns! Hold Your Nose And Get Onboard [View article]
    Timing is everything in investing. The company has to get by the scandal and the price of crude has to rise. PBR might have hedges but they are painted with the same brush as an international oil company and consequently will rise or fall with them. New lows would signal a buy. Plus you always have the Brazil government factor and their ability to do something stupid for investors. Don't discount stupid.

  • 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?
