  • Why Barron's Is Wrong On $75 Oil [View article]
    Europe is likely to drill for shale to break the political ties with Putin. This will reduce the price of oil.

  • What Seeking Alpha Is Doing To Prevent Paid Stock Promotion [View article]
    This is why the authors of articles need to be monitored. I notice negative articles on my stocks and when I read the articles, they say they do not hold the stocks. While I suspect they are short, they do not disclose this. SA has emailed me that short positions have to be disclosed. So something isn't right here. And when there are errors and misleading statements in the headline or in the article, I do not see them ever corrected. So I think there is the same problem here that I see on CNBC. Hedge funds are allowed to run amuck without any accountability for telling the truth. From what I can tell, people use whatever means they can use to make money. So there should be a disclaimer on every page that this author could be paid for his effort to make his or someone else's trades profitable. And every person that goes on CNBC should be asked what their returns have been on their trade positions. Why follow someone who is just attempting to sell you his trades?

  • Ensco Plc: Is A 6% Yield Enough To Overcome The Risks Involved In Holding The Shares? [View article]
    I hope all of you realize that the average person isn't interested in drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and the next disaster will likely wipe out any gains you make.

  • 3 Biotech Companies That Look To Be Good Buys After A Pullback [View article]
    AMGN is the cheapest of the biotechs and I will buy that first based on valuation. As far as the major pharma companies, Pfizer has a higher dividend than Merck, is a larger company, and has a major breast cancer drug in the pipeline which will go to market first before their competition. You need to be buying these companies when they are bargains. Pfizer's ROE is about 4 times Merck's.

  • Ensco Plc: Is A 6% Yield Enough To Overcome The Risks Involved In Holding The Shares? [View article]
    I thought about ESV because it seems cheap but when you are in energy you are just at the mercy of the oil trade. Look how high the price of oil is. Why are the energy companies so cheap? Just doesn't make any sense to me, but I'm just one person, and cannot help things that are mispriced.
    So, I am going to stay in Schlumberger as long as it is in the Moat ETF or own XLE, but I'm definitely under-weight until someone explains it to me. The only thing I can come up with is people think of the industry as dirty, i.e. oil, coal, mining, etc., and just don't want to own it. Meanwhile, commodity traders like investing in oil which makes their job easy. Seems like another thing investors should be complaining about. And some are complaining but "algorithms" are determining the price:

    But if the price of oil is down, seems to me that energy stocks also go down. So to net it out, I have no answers.

  • The Stock Market Is Rigged! The Stock Market Is Not Rigged! [View article]
    And I think Morgan Stanley rigged the GM stock yesterday with their analyst call. They are obviously short. Someone should investigate these analyst calls because I think they are highly unethical, if even illegal.

  • The Stock Market Is Rigged! The Stock Market Is Not Rigged! [View article]
    What I have a problem with is when news headlines are being written that slant to making someone money and then the HFT programs acting on that news. That is definitely rigging.

  • The Stock Market Is Rigged! The Stock Market Is Not Rigged! [View article]
    Rather than criticize someone online, try writing your own post. Seems like all you do is disagree with other people.
    The Fed never once bought the stock market. Nor did they short the stock market. Yet the US Government stands behind the US Dollar as well as treasury bonds, while the banks determine much of the economy's growth by determining who to lend to, what is your credit rating, how much to charge you, and how much to pay you for holding your own money, which they then trade against your own financial interest for their profits. People that are against the Fed and for everything libertarian in general would have us in the deepest depression to the very ruin of the global economy. Obviously regulations were removed and others didn't exist, and that is what caused the crisis. When you allow thieves to take your money, that is what they will do.

  • IBM's Innovation May Trigger Revenue Growth [View article]
    If hardware is what the media is following, they are not following IBM. There are many IBM Twitter accounts as well as PR news on their website.

  • French plan to allow generics alarms Big Pharma [View news story]
    Hopefully consumers have a choice. Go read the article on Bloomberg from earlier in the week about ineffective ingredients in drugs made in low-income countries. I'll stick with Pfizer.

  • General Motors - Priced For Earnings Contraction [View article]
    When you have the newest lineup in the industry this will happen; every new model generally will have their fair share of recalls within the first year.

    The Malibu is very safe. I wouldn't hesitate to buy that car for a family member.

  • Wall Street Loves IBM Again [View article]
    I would wait until they report earnings. They have had terrible earnings calls the past several years. The analysts ask negative questions and IBM just is too nice to them. I wish IBM would just jump all over them for this low price but they won't. Don't ask me why not. I'd blast them away and tell them to go ask their own banks why they don't make more money and stop paying themselves the big bucks for basically doing nothing to help the economy. Anyway, despite knowing that manpower reductions will be charged this quarter, the media will point out that earnings are down ad-nauseum. And that will be the time to buy more shares. If not then, then buy more this summer when the banks leave early on Friday to go to Martha's Vineyard or to work out with Dennis Gartman or they buy corn or oil or something else to run up our prices.
