  • Vringo, Inc. Will Announce Settlement With Belkin International This Week And Other Positive Catalysts [View article]
    "exiguous" surely has a better performance than vrng has had over the last 3 years. That competency hasn't proven anything.

    google as the cash cow? While there is still a probability left, which is exiguous. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that time has passed.

  • SDRL Buy 10.56 [View instapost]
    This is interesting. KP, do you think the all the risk is priced in if oil keeps going lower and/or oil is priced low for years to come? I ask because it seems there are many assumptions on what is fundamentally happening to oil for the long term. If you ask 30 different investors their thoughts on the energy sector, you would get 30 different answers. Thanks for any thoughts

  • Get Out Of Cheniere Energy [View article]
    It feels like forever ago. I remember playing this for the federal export approval. Bought at 5, sold at 12, never played it again. If I recall correctly how it worked with this company, they received MOU's correct? NOt actual contracts for the lng. Couldn't these countries easily backout if they wanted to? This was and is still a big deal because of the excess ng this country has. I wouldn't be surprised if this was one the stocks mentioned to congressman to buy and hold, hence its magical valuation, just like Amazon.

    Over a year ago someone online thought LNG will be paying dividends soon. I was completely baffled by this suggestion.

    This stock is in its first consolidation since it broke out around 12. 55 seems like a good add area, but if can't hold, look out below.

    Bingo, the author's own premise doesn't even fit his own criteria.

    Unless the bidding up is constant, which is rare, USO is not a recommended long term investment. Contango, contango, contango.

  • The free delivery gambit in retail [View news story]
    I am flat out ignorant to the retail ecommerce industry. But I don't know why Walmart didn't push Amazon's online business practice earlier. You know, could have done a test market in nyc, los angeles, Austin, and Atlanta or what have you. Have your nice tailored walmart vans that can even provide same day delivery right from the brick and mortar stores.

    Interesting what qualifies an opportunity for a lifetime. Recommend CVX and XOM when they have barely budged. That is not a discount.

  • One Internist's Glance At MannKind's Afrezza [View article]
    Ding Ding Ding. Robert, I am okay with their cognitive bias. The OP portrays to be conservative and methodical. He/she even stated they prefer to stay inside the box. It comes down to the personal choices of the patient and how much they take a suggestion from the physician. Let's hypothetically say Afrezza is marketed during the superbowl, which leads to a larger patient base asking their Dr's about possibly trying it. Other than patients with underlying issues to prevent usage, we will only know when sales start coming in. Yet we keep getting articles on what is going to happen! And I still think the MM's are careful to see what happens with the mandatory lung function test. Which I believe will lead to a buffer in the stock price, that is if sales do well. Speaking of cognitive biases, I do like the discussion brought upon by this article to see some apprehensive views of future bumps in the road. It's easy to find the permabull view but it takes some time to filter down to see some legitimate issues with peoples' concerns.

    we ricks are in the same boat! I put in limit orders at .47 a couple days ago. Though if I get my orders and I turn some profit, I'll leave 5 to 10 percent for long term. Been on the west coast a few years now, still not use to celebrating New Years last.........

  • America's Key Role In The Downfall Of Oil Prices [View article]
    So you don't like obama? I concur. I like low oil prices and so does everyone else, except those getting fired. The big boys will reallocate resources for the next swing up in due time. You keep talking about leaving things to the free markets. HOnestly when you look, where are the free markets? I haven't still haven't found any on a large scale.

    Isn't Vrng's shtick of overpaying to acquire and retain topline competency? The stock price says it hasn't been very effective.
