  • General Electric: Has The Easy Money Been Made? [View article]
    Not the same We used to get shares of spun off company as well as keeping the original. The way they run it now they reduce GE shares out so bigger bonuses all around from E increase.

  • Does China Really Have 1,000 Tons Of Gold Locked Up In Shadow Financing Deals? [View article]
    I guess I would be more concerned about the 8000 tons the US has, or should have.
    Why couldn't we give the Germans, French, and other countries too, their about 8oo to a 1000 tons back. Said it would take 7 years

  • It's Bubble Time: A Study Of Peak PE For The S&P 500 [View article]
    I really liked your article: Clean, historically fact based, and allows for some interpretation when one looks at the Mi report and other "feel good" indicators like CNBC ... When one stands next to a fire, how close one gets depends on how big the fire is.

  • U.S. Oil Export Ban: A Catalyst That May Harm Economy, Producers And Foreign Policy [View article]
    There are Bills in Congress, and refineries being built, to allow just the slightest refining to then Export our oil. The article I read pointed out proudly, they would "Ruffle the Molecules" and then ship it as refined products. I am against exporting our energy. Build out the infrastructure for NG, build more cars and big rigs that use it, and heat more homes and factories and get rid of the monopoly Propane and Heating oil has on the rural, and most small mid west cities. We need some large incentive for the big produces of goods -- like kitchen appliances and clothing and, on and on.

    Its obvious you have a better grasp on facts than I, and can extrapolate them out to logical conclusions. I appreciate your reasoned responses. You mentioned politics was not your forte. I'm afraid my position might include politics but mainly results from a fear of seeing people in the streets of all our cities, like Syria, Liybia, etal., because they have lost everything, including hope. Something like that would change America from what I experienced in my 75 years, to who knows? I want my kids and grandkids to know what freedom is left here in the US. I see energy as the one ace in the hole, we haven't given away yet, that might bring a lot of those jobs back here. Thanks a lot Bill

    I guess I have to agree about NG being cheaper here than in importing countries. But, exports will put a floor under the price and higher prices will affect gasification of our trucks, buses, and heating homes, as well as electrical production, all of which will raise costs to everyone. To avoid wasting NG, infrastructure build out of NG lines to the millions of homes heating today with fuel oil and propane would be a step towards a US Energy Policy AS far as Balance of trade -- bring back a lot of those companies for cheap energy and sell the goods overseas.

    I am against exporting our energy -- of any kind! All the loop holes, such as "ruffling the molecules" so it can be exported, should be closed. Refined products, exported, represent a drain of vital resourses, industrial capacity, ie., refineries wear and tear, and reduce the incentives of cheap energy here in the US for world wide industries to move here.
    We need to keep our cheap energy here to encourage industry to come back here, much like "cheap labor" sent jobs overseas. The rationalizations of "Balance of Trade" and any possible leverage we can exert against Russia/China are false expectations. We need a middle class again.

  • Bank Of America: Why Buybacks Are Better Than Dividends [View article]
    I agree with c-barry My experience is it dilutes share holder value by paying more than the stock's worth (many examples) and then issueing stock by the boat load to upper level execs

  • The Big Disconnect Between Leverage And Spreads [View article]
    Nice precise explanation. When it comes time to pay up or refinance at 7%/8%/12% a lot of paper will sit there in a lot of retail investor's portfolios. I don't think they'll want to "mark to market"

    David ---If you are truely worried, pick up things like VVR and NRZ. They pay a decent divi and do to their business, and unlike bonds, they can increase their income as % rates increase. Just my opinion so do your own DD
