  • Fortune Favors The Bold, Buy Bank Of America  [View article]
    The adverse news is welcome to a certain extent. The only other thing to keep away new law suits is to show that they are near bankruptcy so that a winning litigant would get nothing in a future claim. If the current Federal claim sees that weakening the bank would harm the economic recovery - maybe they'll shave a few billion off the settlement. With increased set asides to come, less or actually nothing will be going out for taxes. Characterization of debt and assets can be questionable but one thing that is not questionable is cash on hand. As the "trouble" continues watch the cash on the balance sheet grow hidden in reserves.

    The immediate impact will be a full charge to buy before rates go higher. Inventories will be depleted and the company would report a record quarter.

  • Bank Of America: Buy At Current Discounted Price  [View article]
    We need to recommend a name change - from Bank of America to Bank of the Ukraine. Maybe that would send a message to the Justice Department that the policy of weakening USA institutions and strengthening our enemies is just not the way to.

  • Bank Of America: Another Sham Lawsuit Has Potentially Grave Implications  [View article]
    Josh, what would happen if BAC digs in their heals and wins. How much effort is RI willing to put into a long drawn out case at tax payer's expense. We are getting to the end of this continuous litigation. BAC has to defend to show they are going to go all the way and any entity going against them will be risking the costs of litigation vs the amount of any settlement a court would allow. If the court goes in favor of the plaintiff and the amount awarded is smaller than the costs and effort to litigate - it would be the green flag for investors. It would show other "money grabber" hopefuls the folly of trying. No $2 bet on this horse race - I'm at the $50 window.

  • Cliffs Natural Resources: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly  [View article]
    May be a good time to switch to MSB. All domestic shipments on the Great Lakes. Winter shipping slowed and large amount of restocking needed by the Mills - some had to shut down. Large immediate demand to restock ore and build up larger inventory if another cold winter comes to avoid shut downs. Tonnage and price should do better than if dependent on foreign demand. The royalty trust shares are trading above both the 20-day and 200-day MAs. Share price seems to have stabilized and can rebound within 5-years to more than double and pay out a 7%+ yield on the way. $MSB $CLF $GNI

  • Bank Of America: Don't Be Fooled By Dead Cat Bounce  [View article]
    Nice get the clicks article. But no great advice on how to start a position. Regardless of earnings, you don't have any real idea of what to expect. After earnings may be less risky. With the recent decline from the highs set earlier, the shorts would cover in decreasing their risk before earnings. But for a new investor establishing a position, its an excellent opportunity. The risk of not getting the low can be offset by establishing an acquisition strategy. For a small investor, buying some now and wait to buy more after the report may work well. That way regardless of price and profit - you are guaranteed of not being wrong unless the price remains exactly the same and kicking yourself that you could have saved a brokerage commission for not buying it all at once, LOL.

  • Cliffs Looks Like An Attractive Long-Term Investment  [View article]
    Another way to play it is MSB. They just announced no distribution for the recent Winter quarter that is seasonal and hit with abnormally cold weather. Depleted stocks have closed some mills. There should be a sharp rebound in demand and price. The shipping capacity is limited but will go full blast. $CLF $MSB $GNI

    Nothing new to spur the stock. They need to be more aggressive on the buybacks. The dividend news was as expected or slightly less - this makes it not a dividend stock for income investors. So who new is buying it?

  • Bank Of America: Rising Rates A Net Positive?  [View article]
    Margin on real estate loans is certainly increasing. Josh is hitting on the real reason to see this company's profits will increase. Housing is very strong and BAC's acquisition of Countrywide as much as they are deemphasizing their contribution will start to provide superior results. Rate increases have home buyers panicking to lock in deals. The Fed and LT rates on mortgage securities are still very low. I'm looking at the up-tic on the mortgage REITs - they may have hit bottom - need to see the end of the their payout declines. Overall economic growth will be the cream on top of this fabulous market recovery that could be a record breaker as far as being the longest in history. BAC should continue to be a superior participant for investors.

  • Bank Of America: 70% Upside Over The Medium Term  [View article]
    Big item to consider is the appreciation of the value that is on the book, especially real estate. Home prices in Charlotte, NC are up 9.9% from the same month (Feb) last year. I don't see any for sale signs in my neighborhood. Foreclosed homes are selling for more than the mortgage liabilities to be recovered.

  • Bank Of America: How Big Can The Dividend Get?  [View article]
    Good analysis on the dividend potential. I hope more emphasis should be made on the stock buy backs. Additional litigation can require more set asides on the balance sheet to allow more income to go untaxed. This pot of money should be used to buy back more stock to resell after it goes up to at least book value. I'm ready to stand up at the stockholder's meeting to demand this.
