  • The NYT tells the fascinating story of how frenetic bankers like Ralph Eads III raised way too much money to finance the shale gas production dreams of those like his frat brother Aubrey McClendon (CHK). "Quit drilling," pleaded T. Boone Pickens to his fellow EXCO (XCO) board members as gas prices plunged. It made sense, but there was a problem: The terms of the EXCO's financing and leasing agreements required the company to continue. [View news story]

  • Why A Romney Win Could Be Bad For The Market [View article]
    Government is not a business. If Democrats treat Romney the way Republicans treat Obama, he gets nowhere. Remember that the last businessman that was president was George W. Bush.
    When government gets into business, that's called socialism. When government gets into bed with big business and the banks, that's called National Socialism. That's where this country is now. QE3 forever.

  • Ben Bernanke And QE3++ [View article]
    Here is my gauge of real inflation from Atlanta. Two years ago I could buy a chuck steak on sale for $1.95 per pound. Today is saw the price at $4.50 per pound. My house has gone from a valuation of $450,000 dollars before the crash to $250,000 now. QE $quat!

ThinkEquity cuts YGE to Sell based on “persistent losses," setting a price target of $1; Maxim warns of a "mounting” cash drain and net debt that “has reached dangerous heights." [View news story]

  • First Solar (FSLR -5.7%) falls hard after Pac Crest cuts its estimates in response to JA Solar and Yingli's disappointing Q2 reports. Though still down on the year, First Solar has been one of this summer's best performers, thanks to a strong Q2 report and growing investor confidence that the company's new focus on projects instead of module sales will pay off. Update: Eric Savitz claims Pac Crest didn't cut its estimates today, as was reported by The Fly on the Wall. [View news story]
    What does Pc Crest know? Answer: no more than the rest of us. Question, Does FSLR have the same business model as Yingli or JA Solar? Answer: No.

  • Buy Gasoline Futures To Profit From Storms Ernesto And Florence [View article]
    The outages in the SE were outages in Atlanta (where i live) and were caused by a rumor that led to a buying panic. Everyone tried to buy gas at 2PM and guess what happened. It took a few days for the pipeline to fill back up and everything returned to normal.

  • New Peer Review Credibility From Johns Hopkins Could Drive Star Scientific Shares Higher [View article]
    I have spinal stenosis and tried anatabine at elevated dose to lessen inflamation. Anatablock did absolutely nothing. I also looked up Roskamp Institute and it has a financial interest in Star. When things sound too good to be true......

  • Corn Ethanol Producers Enter A Perfect Storm [View article]
    Before the EPA, the pollution on the Cuyahoga river caught on fire and people dropped dead in Pitts. during an air inversion. Capitalism does not police itself as witness these events and you could throw in the crash of 08 as well.

  • I Hate To Interrupt Today's Rally, But ... [View article]
    A bunch of bullshit. I paid into Social Security all my life and you have the nerve to call it an entitlement. That is my money that I am now collecting. Second, I have been paying through my premiums for every deadbeat out there that games medical insurance. It's time for them to pay for their own insurance. Here in GA., everyone that has a car must be insured so that if you have a wreck, you will have the coverage to pay. Why then is it so great not to have to pay your hospital bills and force the payment on us. If you cut the American Empire in half, (over 1,000 military installations world wide) you would be able to provide medical care for everyone.
