  • Wall Street Breakfast: Eurozone Manufacturing Data Adds To Recovery Hopes [View article]
    Richard,

    Surely you jest.

    Mr. Carleton apparently is a recent member of SA. Someone should clue him in that we don't take fake news/straw man centric progressives kindly. Serious investors are smarter than that.

    If there is a wage issue, Little Richard, look no further than policies emanating from the intelligentsia inside the White House over the past six years. And the Democrats in Congress who shilled.

  • Is GE A Top-Notch Income Stock? [View article]
    No. It is a gaggle of disparate parts that should be broken up to unlock value.

  • General Electric: Fair Value Of $38+ And Dividend Yield Approaching 4% Make An Investment In GE A No-Brainer [View article]
    I am a GE stockholder waiting for one event that will greatly enhance my share's value.

    Immelt's firing.

    I am a patient investor. His time is coming.

  • Kinder Morgan: The Cat Is Officially Out Of The Bag [View article]
    Greens are much more interested in the accumulation of power to dictate our lives then any fossil fuel project. They are kindred spirits of National Socialists. Same concepts. Same brazen power trip. They are to be defeated at every turn.

    Kudos to Kinder Morgen and the Canadian government for overcoming the zealots.

  • General Electric (GE) Presents at Bank of America Merrill Lynch Global Industrials & EU Autos Conference (Transcript) [View article]
    The ONLY news that would help GE's stock is the resignation of Immelt.

    He is a curse to stockholders.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Markets Await Fed Policy Decision [View article]
    Agree with Mr. Carlini's observation. Six figure degree programs are very common. To subsidize gazillion dollar athletic amenities, outrageous outlier elective classes, useless degree programs (o.k., I'll say it: Black Studies, for one), salaries for full time often radical left professors teaching nine hours or less per week with long paid sabbaticals, etc.

    Elementary and secondary schools are in large part supposed to teach students how and why to learn. They are failing.

    Universities were to focus on a certain area of instruction and a few broad-based general classes where students would master a discipline and also hear a myriad spectrum of points of view. They are in large part failing.

    I recently had a clandestine lunch with a professor in the fine arts division at a major university. He confided in me that he never would have been hired if the panel that interviewed him knew of his relatively conservative political leanings. In fact, he had to lie about it.

    Unfortunately, one can expect a balanced and varied degree program on line or in some pseudo universities like The University of Phoenix. With all their shortcomings, at least they don't operate as a far left brainwashing mechanism first and learning institution second.

    I'm exaggerating a bit about on line instruction. But there is an underlying truth to all of the above comments. It pains me to make these observations.

  • Santa Klaus Is Coming To Town For Alcoa [View article]
    Investors should look at the mandatory convertible preferred of Alcoa, trading attractively below the $50 initial offering price and yielding close to 6% with a short duration to the convertible stage.

  • The Shopping Center REIT Showdown: March Madness Continues [View article]
    Interest bracket approach.

    Of course, the odds of picking the best REIT in this gaggle of names using the bracket approach is not an accurate predictive instrument.The odds of selecting all the winning teams in the NCAA bracket scheme, for instance, is less than one in a trillion.

    Nonentheless, we gamble on stocks as we gamble in the office bracket challenge.

    Too bad Obama was so much in love with the Islamist radical Morsi to even bother to say THANKS to the new leader - who is doing what is necessary to quell the nut jobs.

    I have held high quality bonds (shorter duration) and high quality stocks since 1972.
