  • Why Thursday's Sell-Off Matters [View article]
    I agree with GIS, not with the rise in PG today though. GIS is the 3rd largest owner of organic food producers. Look at how expensive Hain and Whitewave are.

  • Short Sellers And Seeking Alpha [View article]
    "obviously" doesn't mean SA. I meant that people are buying stocks all the time in their 401k and IRAs.

  • Can Twitter And Chicago Bridge & Iron Tell Us Anything About The Mood Of The Market? [View article]
    The market does present good buying opportunities. Good luck with your decision. I don't follow UBS and Barclays myself. CBI doesn't pay much of a dividend which is probably because of their cash flow as stated in your article. Keep us posted on how they are going to turn this around.

    And you have to wonder why someone publishes the same info over and over.
    For around 2 years, someone was publishing negative sentiment on IBM, most likely to get them to sell their semi-mfg to investors in the Middle East.

    Obviously there are more longs than shorts. Stocks are an investment. Shorts are a trade.

  • Broad sales gains across segments for GM [View news story]
    GM and F are going to be selling a lot of cars for back-to-school. This is the best shopping season for consumers either going to look at next year's models coming out now or hoping to get last year's models at a discount.

    GM, whose sales are greater than Ford, matched the growth of 9.4% in sales which is very good. Both companies are good investments with GM having the larger dividend yield of 3.55%.

    You can lose money too by listening to short sellers. Many times I have sold good companies from reading bearish articles only to later regret it. And articles from bears seem to have more comments. Explain that. And it appears to happen while America sleeps.

  • Why Corning's Stock Is A Great Investment Opportunity Right Now [View article]
    I agree with you that GLW is a good buy now. Dow Corning Reports Increased Sales and Profits for First Half of 2014. Corning reported revenue of $2.48 billion, up 8.4% sequentially, 25.2% year over year. I'm buying shares around $19.

    The summer gives you buying opportunities. If you don't take advantage of them, next year you will regret it. It's easy to look at cheap stocks of good companies that are down for the year and do nothing. But the Fed isn't going to change its outlook, and you need to be putting your money into stocks that have given you the opportunity to buy them lower that you have been waiting for this summer. If you don't want to pick stocks, then look for good mutual funds that are down for the year, but have a long-term, 10-yr, performance history. The fastest money I have made is in stocks who are below the 200 dma but with some bit of news on new products that hits the news media like Barron's. Slow and steady companies like IBM are for those who want safety but with significant upside ahead. If there is too much pessimism on a good company, time to consider the other side. Or if you don't like mutual funds or picking stocks, then go with Berkshire Hathaway or another value conglomerate.

    I read somewhere that today a Portugal bank couldn't pay a hedgefund their debt payment so I think that is what happened. And traders probably stopped buying anything.

    majority of your money is short? You are a brave one with the unemployment rate dropping.

    The point is that they were wrong. "Sell in May" didn't work.

    Since April 30, VIX is up 23% while the VXX ETN is down 21%. There is an article on this website that explains the difference. The VXX is for traders and is not an investment. Perhaps it's just a way for you to pay money to try to prop up Credit Suisse.
