  • U.S. Deflation Update [View article]
    capitalism? capitalism works better on free markets. Nothing wrong with SOME liquidity, but this is out of hand. There is a cycle to everything, there is nothing wrong with temporary deflation.

  • A Close-Up Look At The Report That Had MannKind Investors Reeling [View article]
    That's sarcasm in my post Mule. For one analysts rating that induced plenty of volatility and volume, I'm pretty positive their holdings will NOT reduce. These bozos suggested 200 oil. Now, not just them, but everyone and their grandma is telling us where oil will go. That reversal on XOM provided more liquidity for shorts to continue their gains. Technically speaking XOM will continue to see pain. My crystal ball is broken but I easily see 80 in the near future. I would argue GS is the most unethical entity on the planet.

  • The State Of MannKind [View article]
    Crabster, I don't have a problem with the idea of short selling. There are many tricks of the trade. 20 percent of traders are shorts. Stocks can be manipulated upwards too. MNKD is still not a 100 percent guarantee. I do take issue with the major manipulation in the markets though. And biotech is by far the most manipulated sector. If people don't want to deal with shorts, they need to buy high priced stocks that are solid companies, especially liquid. Manipulation is very low there. Taking on MNKD as an investment as many other low priced stocks takes balls of steel. The additional benefit of shorts is when a positive binary event happens, the short squeeze is on. What concerns me is these young bright minds coming out of top schools with degrees in computer science and finance and they go work for HF's as programmers to make money off of 1 to 5 cent swings. This provides absolutely nothing to society. In fact, wallstreet doesn't provide much to society at all. I would rather see people try to be an Elon Musk than a HF algorithm programmer. I laugh when I think of HF's with a T1 line right by the stock exchange so they can quote stuff, etc and move the market before retail sees it and then swing the other way. What a life!

    I thought SA was cleaning up the mess they created on this site. The only good thing about inept articles like this is, the investors come out of the wood work to rip these articles apart. Where are those SA bozos when you need them?

  • Update: Ditch Vringo On This Pop [View article]
    KP makes a good point. Whether someone takes internet keyboard warrior comments as full value or a grain of salt is the risk management decision of the viewer. He is the only one giving his entries. For how constructive and academic some of these comments are it seems to be for the sole purpose of stroking one's ego (keyboard warrior syndrome). Some here have been spouting the same nonsense for 3 years straight on VRNG's capitalization is just right around the corner and the stock just keeps going down.

    I don't comment much on VRNG but I laugh when I add my EXIGUOUS no substance comments, as they are as useful as the long winded rants on VRNG.

  • Remembering Rockefeller's Promise - A New World Order Where International Bankers And Intellectual Elites Rule [View article]
    James, what is worse is people like you dignifying it in the first place. Go back to your Atlas Shrugged scientist mentality where rational thought has gone out the window and only Federal Reserve number crunching is all that matters to you. See what I did there, I dignified your own drivel.

    I've been asking people in the medical field but I don't know anyone with diabetes... I would love to know their view on the warning label and the lung function test. Are most people willing to do the test and take the medication right away or wait on it and see what happens to others? This may sound trivial but may also cause a buffer in additional sales. I have a feeling if things are fine, MM's won't get on the band wagon until after a positive review on MNKD patients 6 month review. And from there on a massive short squeeze. I have initiated positions in MNKD. But I have a feeling there will be plenty of time to add more at lower prices.

  • Rail Traffic And Jobless Claims Still Point To Expansion [View article]
    Soy and corn is plentiful in processed foods. Corn itself is not profitable, its subsidized to create nice cheap poor quality food. High Fructose Corn Syrup is in just about everything. We pay taxes to further facilitate the decline the health of the population. People take in way too much sugar.

    you could say the same with SA. They feel empowered by this move. WHat happened to the empowerment of getting rid of the garbage articles?

  • Vringo: How To Lose At Winning [View article]
    I don't know why anyone would call him a sell out. He expected a higher price on the RR motion but he didn't use emotions and took his profits. I am curious if he will come out with any other stock ideas. I consider seekingalpha more of a sellout by allowing this article. It's inept, useless, and author pretty much did it out of spite from his own poor trading.

  • Vringo: What You Really Need To Pay Attention To [View article]
    Ravicher should learn what a stop loss is, and stick to law and stop pontificating on investments like VRNG. The glaring volatility when he posted articles on VRNG is not a coincidence.
