  • How Low Can This Market Go? [View article]
    yeah, all the dale roberts of the world, buy that all time f..... high in cvx at 132 or how about cat at 115 or how about cmg at the stratosphere, or the n225 at 39,000 in 1989; yeah, all those buy and holds worked great; yeah, roll the clock back to '74, buy the 'dip' and then let the insidious cumulative effect of currency devaluation boost your nominal yield by 10 or 20 times and add to that the surge in economic globalization and the demographic and political changes then of china over the last 20-30 years and yeah, one heckuva boom; now what do you do with the hangover of a 100 trillion of debt??? why destroy ALL of the currencies and do a reset; of course, before the reset, use the soon to be worthless fiat and buy any and all shares venezuela style and yeah, now when you decline at 2 orders of magnitude, well that $5 stock is now $500 to stay even, but hey, what a return

  • Market Conditions Are Likely To Keep Caterpillar Down [View article]
    btw author; its "personnel", not "personal"; a WTI hit 106 and change and I would call 40 and change OVER HALF, not "nearly" half;

    CAT is just another legacy portfolio holding that the money managers up until now have been stuck holding; 17 straight quarters of lousy perf; should be a $40 and change stock and then it might be a value prop;

    they've got maybe 6 bln cash; 2 bln out to div; 30 bln debt that costs them 2 bln/yr and their mickey mouse financial engineering to buy back stock!

    their customer base has been fractured and on the ropes for 2.5 years and now the tsunami of disaster is really hitting; by what measure other than hopium could one possibly use assume this a buy anywhere near what it is selling for???

  • Stocks plunge to historic losses after midday rebound loses steam [View news story]
    forget u jj1937; the bullyguy had it right, could not do anything at the open for nearly a half hour but these are great trading days;

    and no, the central bank will not save the 'markets' this go round; careful managers are eyeing how to capture the upside of their mo mo buys and they now have the cover to do so

  • Is The Heat Of This Correction Too Much? Get Out Of The Kitchen Or Start Nibbling Now [View article]
    so how did the market close work out for you there george? if it had not been for PPT taking the side door at 9:34 to make the buys work and then blatant criminality on transfer of non pub info ala 'loooky what's here in my in-box' jim cramer, the flash crash would have circuit breaker shut the whole darn casino;

    forget the mickey mouse "recent highs" and focus on functional sma's to get a sense for valuation based on something other than, hey, buy the mo-mo's; this pendulum will need to torch all the 'dry ammo' holders and then you've got your value prop; the central banks can only now destroy the underpinnings of the global financial system through rapid currency devaluation and then the markets will definitely go higher on a nominal basis just like Venezuela (700 bolivars to the buck, yeah, i sure like that return)

    go read young charlie bilelo's piece on rev recession to get a good sense; oh i forgot if we can devalue the dollar then revenues go up; yeah, that's right zimbabwe here we come

  • Stocks: Perspectives On The Selloff [View article]
    aside from the dislike of certain sa trolls as the aforementioned, enough is enough with blathering over percentage drops from mickey mouse all time highs driven by typical uninformed late stage delayed enthusiasm; instead take some sma over a reasonable trading period like say the 50 dma and then compare the drops; heck the financials hardly budged; the commodity bloodbath has been thoroughly masked in the usa indices by the biotech zero PE mo-mo's, the consumer delight 50-100x PE mo-mo's and of course the phone king AAPL;

    the central bank intervention game is DOA!!!!; and that is why PM's have bottomed because unrestrained currency destruction is the only way out of the debtors jail these morons have put the collective global economy and its denizens in;the strings have been cut for the puppeteers and now like the rowboat in the tempest just watch the inevitable crash in liquidity play out;

    march of 2012 was the turning point; the brakes needed to go on, let things simmer for a few years and by 2018, there would have been the sustained push of true economic expansion even without bankrupting the deserving; but no, could not let that happen and just like the kabuki in the pacific or the tragedy in the mediterranean, all the world's a stage for the unfortunate financial pantomine that global 'leaders' have cast

  • Why Apache's Recent Rally Will Continue [View article]
    i think there are mgmt issues that bother investors; they are now at where they were in 2004 when oil was last at 40; i too like apa but their downtrend during a period of uptrend makes you wonder

  • Chevron: Searching For A Bottom [View article]
    last time oil sold for 40/bbl was 2004 and cvx was a 40 something stock; what if prices stuck lower for longer like say thru 2016;

    the q3 numbers will be devastating; 5 years ago cvx was 70 before the central banks destroyed balanced market yields; this stock went up for all of those who wanted their precious 3% and change yield and fooling themselves that there was an equity kicker as well;

    now all of those who bought north of a 100 have to hope and pray that their current higher yield survives

  • Schlumberger Has 15% Downside Risk [View article]
    you guys got short memories; jun 2013 it was 71 and lower than that for a long while before; just because it is coming off the absurdity of last may-july 2014 runup to nirvana does not mean it has bottomed

    watch the wind down into 2016 and the effect q3 has on every e&p; then you will see slb selling in the 60's again

  • Chevron Won't Be At $80 Levels For Long [View article]
    arithmetic- gallon of gas has 120k btu or 30kw; tesla gets 3 miles per kw; comparable gas powered vehicle 30 miles per gallon; fairly equal; kw costs .10 or $3 for 30 miles and gas costs $3 for 30 miles;

    in los angeles, gas is $4-4.5 right now; in houston, it is $2.30 or half; driving a Mod 30 in CA makes sense, Houston with A/C no way;

    distilled liquid hydrocarbons are wonderful compact sources of energy and have been for over 100 years; environmental impact impossible to sustain for another 100 years (manure analogy of 1903);

    i like gasoline but think electricity will ultimately win the majority of future market share growth

    go bust go; i relish the thought of fair value on the russell 3k about 40% down from its cb inflated highs and stick it to the s&p 500 at about 1300; don't think that greece is an anomaly; the whole global dm is on the fast track toward immolation as a result of UNSUSTAINABLE DEBT
