  • Bank Of America And Its High Marginal Cost Of Funds [View article]
    Good article, and its obvious this author has capabilities far beyond mine, but, as usual, an actual prediction is lacking. That line in the sand, that measuring stick, the way to gauge if one is right or wrong, or, if what they write will make any difference at all, is missing. What will BAC be in 2-3 yrs? 12.00 or 25.00? or 50.00? Have you sold short, or simply sold? Or ??

  • AIG: How Will The Shift In Focus Influence Investors' Decision To Buy, Sell Or Hold? [View article]
    Kind of a strange way of approaching AIG -- understated and underwhelmed played off against DB's hold. Kind of rubbed their faces in it with the increases in Rev and EPS. I liked it. I hold shares

  • Gross Watch: Grey But Not Black [View article]
    I am invested in muni ETFs, of which Gross is invested. Of course, he can sell out at anytime without consulting me Ha, but he invests in his own products ( to the tune of millions) is the point. I saw the "buy stock" comment and that was in response to persistent questioning by a talking head. Yes already. Buy stocks with yields.

  • Bank Of America And Merrill Lynch Avoid Death Penalty [View article]
    I, for one think this is extortion; pure and simple and Political as well. The mortgage feeding frenzy was originated in the "Feel Good" leftist actions by Frank and Durbin, et,al., legisation and brow beating to accept lower and lower standards of economic standards. Mr Rheigns(sp) from Fanny or Freddy? took home a 90 million dollar pay package from dealng these CDOs and all leftists were so happy we were getting these people into homes. So good for them politically. And Rubin, another leftist, got City into it because of the easy money and then he retired with 100 million. The rating agancies were being paid to rate these Trances with AAA, and if they didn't the institutions would go to the next Agency. All nice and cozy. Goldman knew, and others too, that it was all a house of cards. I could go on and on but it seems most of you are stuck on the leftist's teats and are in fear of being shook loose. My Opinion Jail those suckers that were at the top and claw back all they have. Leave the Instituions alone.

  • The Italian Job: How Borrowing And Printing Lead To An Economic Dead End [View article]
    Deep Value ---I hope you are right. I have been of the same mind and have invested as such. However; the fact remains if GDP picks up and wages increase, a one or two % increase in the 10 year will mean an 18 to 20 % drop in my assets.

  • Don't Buy This Dip: The Fed Is Not Your Friend [View article]
    Coming from he distant past, I see the same thing as Stockman. My main question is, what happens when rates hit 5/6% and the fed has 4 trillion on the balance sheet but its only worth 2 trillion?

  • US Crude Export Ban Sticks Through Election Year [View article]
    No opposition to export Ag products -- America can compete there. Boeing needs some reasons to We can not compete with world wide labor and subsidies given to our companies to move there. Ross Perot said it best, and today Unions are down to 7-8 %. Several million people dropped out of the labor force -- no longer counted. Cheaper energy would be a big incentitive to move back here and pick up the slack.

  • US Crude Export Ban Sticks Through Election Year [View article]
    I hope you are right. Personally I would ban all energy exports. Why export what we've paid so dearly for, in lives and capital, in the middle east. Why export what could make us cost competitive with cheap labor countries? Why export our energy when our chemical , auminum, steel companies have to compete with world wide labor, hidden subsidies, and dumping as well as the EPA and high taxes in the US. The Ex-Im bank pays imports for importing here. If the main arguement is "Balance of Trade" thats like saying we do not care about the middle class jobs that have left the US and that adding millions of jobs here in Manufacturing isn't important. Industrial jobs create 5 times the DGP that service jobs create. We already export Diesel by the boat load, and even though it's easier to produce, it costs more here than gas. I hope its a poltical factor because it seems fear of losing power is the only thing preventing the whole sale rush for Profits at the expense of America's lower/middle class.

  • My 2 Concerns About General Electric's Synchrony Spin-Off [View article]
    So, I can take GE stock in place of the SYF spin off, thereby increasing GE share count??? Or, I can take SYF shares, which are mine already? And I won't be forced -- unless I am. And your last statement was incredibly arrogant.
