  • Argentina's Default Option [View article]
    Part of the problem is the Argentinian ego. Good love this country and their people but they do not lack for confidence and a superior view of the world. The default may not hurt the country very much. Let the peso crash, I would love to buy a steak dinner in Bueno Aires for $4 and stay at a B&B for $20 a night.

  • When Investors Ignore, You Win! [View article]
    The PPS is a little high with no dividend. Let's see what the correction brings to the PPS. Also let's see how many folks have money to use to borrow against to secure a loan through these folks. They are not the only people in the cheap loan business

  • WATT? 'Be Prepared To Lose All Of Your Investment' [View article]
    You lost me when you mentioned FOX news. I don't trust them to present the truth often, they are so anti Obama, well, we all know this. I am not sure what the articel was about. It sure was not a buy. This company sounds interesting only and you are right, you lose all your money at the end.

  • The #GrieFault Trade: Why Argentina's Bonds Might Be Worth Even More In Default [View article]
    Facts are facts, but perception is everything. The perception is Argentina does not pay its bills. Since the market is always right (again, perception of many) let's see what happens if they default. The country is suffering from inflation and generally not doing well. A default will not help.

  • Whiting USA Trust: Likely To Drop Back To Its Fair Value In The Coming Days; $1.50 Price Target [View article]
    So even with all the new technology out there in getting crude out of the ground? Who gets the rights to keep drilling if they want? Who owns the mineral rights? Who owns the actual land?

  • Brazil's Coming Melt-Up [View article]
    Be careful what you wish for. Political change is not always favorable to investors. Brazilians have themselves to thank for the economic mess. People just love their government when prosperous but hate it when times get tough. I still think she gets reelected but not by much. To all you arch uneducated conservatives, for the record, Brazil is not a socialist country, nor a Communist one either. I own a small position in PBR.

  • NQ Mobile Rises 93% In One Week From Its 52-Week Low [View article]
    Sorry, but MW has been right more times than wrong. If they are so wrong all the time the pond scum, I mean the lawyers, would have taken them out with law suits long ago.

  • The 'Come To Jesus' Earnings Report [View article]
    Now you've done it. The true believers and zealots of Amazon will now bash you. I agree how can they be a $200 equity. I think they should be about $50, but the market place is ALWAYS right, just right before it is wrong. I assume you are going to short Amazon in some way.

  • The Crossroads Are Clear, But The Path Is Not [View article]
    Just a minor note on biology. The proverbial frog in the pot of water on the stove. The frog WILL jump out of the water when it gets too warm. Studies have shown that the frog will not just stay in the water to be boiled and it DOES recognized the environment has changed and do something. Unlike the conservatives who still deny global climate change and are truly the frog in the pot---sorry I wandered away from my point. Stop fighting the trend, and trend is up up and away. The way is clear. It goes up.

  • Update: General Motors Earnings - Meets On EPS And Takes Huge Reserves; Value Trap [View article]
    Captain, you have spent too much time at sea. Stocks usually trade looking to the future. I see a lot of cars in the future around the world. See China for proof. Agreed there are other stocks out there as good or perhaps better. I get the feeling you are one of those who believed GM should have gone under for political reasons. The bull market may correct, but GM will never go below $20 unless the market as a whole collapses, then there will be very few places to hide your money, even with all those other good stocks.

  • Update: General Motors Earnings - Meets On EPS And Takes Huge Reserves; Value Trap [View article]
    Bob, have you bought a GM car in the last 5 years? Sorry to tell you but MOST of the cars now made are the best made cars ever. Do have any idea how many parts go into an auto? These are not even remotely the same cars as was produced 30 years ago. Are bashing GM because you don't know better or are you one of those conservatives who felt GM should have gone under for political reasons? All ALL the car companies in the world have gotten the message about car quality.
