  • Chesapeake Granite Wash - Seriously, This Junk Is Worth $11 Per Share? [View article]
    Lots of junk out there. And even more investors in denial of risk.

    I blame the present regime in Washington. Its war on the investing class and retirees by nuking government bond interest rates and under reporting inflation - allowing them to spend endlessly on free stuff for the self entitled lazy in what amounts to nothing more than a huge vote buying scheme without paying interest on the debt incurred.

    It will be interesting times, indeed, when this outrageous rape grinds to it's inevitable halt.

  • The Pathway To Creating Wealth With REIT Diversification [View article]
    I remain to be convinced that investing in one asset class, real estate REITS, is diversification. I want to retain wealth as well as grow more. I love REITS, but in reasonable proportion within a comprehensive wealth strategy.

    I can't wait for his forthcoming immigrant package. We'll have a race to the gutter to see which ethnic minority can grab the most free stuff.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Google Developing Delivery Drone Fleet [View article]
    I have decided that in my part of the world skeet shooting will be enhanced with drone target practice. An added bonus, I'll get a prize when I blast it out of the sky with my Remington 780.

  • Which Discount Retailer Is Your Best Investment In Retirement? [View article]
    None.

    I don't invest in any stand alone entity that feeds, flies, floats or f....:)

    This has served me well since 1974.

  • Memo To McDonald's: Core Execution Should Be On New U.S. President's To-Do List [View article]
    Look at their hopelessly cluttered menu. Then observe what affirmative action and government credits for hiring certain individuals have done to the quality of restaurant experience for customers.

    1. Simplify the menu.
    2. Hire responsible young adults that need the extra money to further their education and senior citizens with a work ethic.

  • The Demise Of Active Management Is Greatly Exaggerated [View article]
    I am my own active manager, with about 30% of my portfolio. The other 70% is indexed. This works well for me.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Euro Sinks To 11-Month Low On ECB Outlook [View article]
    Bringing in rabbles of folks who vote for the color of skin and not the issues is not going to salvage any country. Thanks to affirmative action in the US, skin color means more than ability or intellect.

    This will be our downfall.

  • Why I Will Start Social Security At Age 62 [View article]
    This presents an interesting - and quite under served- income and benefit topic on SA.

    Although I do not qualify for ss benefits due to my defined benefit as per the 1986 tax law revision package, and have lost more than $150,000 in extorted contributions, not counting my wife's contributions which are also lost I have no hope of recouping, I am sure social security, treated as a bond within a wealth management scheme, needs to be carefully examined by all investors who qualify for benefits.

  • To Handsomely Beat The Market, Buy Petroamerica Oil With Both Hands [View article]
    Well researched article. Still, looking at the geographical placement in unpredictably brutal South America, I get a know in my stomach on this security.

    Most of the region is one step away from some despot nationalizing natural resources.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Burger King In Talks To Buy Tim Hortons [View article]
    Pumping the stock price up at the expense of any measure of long term growth within their niche is quintessential vulture management tactics.

    Or was it up 56+% because speculators knew they were selling or merging out?

    Looks like BKW is a poor replacement for Tim Horton's prior whore: Wendys.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Burger King In Talks To Buy Tim Hortons [View article]
    BK back in the day was a noble competitor to McDonalds, especially within mature suburban markets. It lost it's way, and the present management group has not done the brand any favors. Dated locations and no thought to employee quality or restaurant cleanliness.

    Tim Horton's are showing their age. But I still enjoy stopping to eat there on my rare visits to the northern US (aka Canada).

    To me, this is similar to the KMart/Sears marriage. Two old brands without long term hope.
