  • The Markets Will Sink In Titanic Fashion [View article]
    I am a little bit confused by what you are suggesting with your last comment. I will agree with you that Putin is very similar to historical leaders like Napoleon and Hitler. However the suggestion of war as a distinct possibility seems a like a little too much of an extrapolation to me. I am not suggesting there wont be any sort of military conflict which arises out of this posturing but that is exactly what this entire situation feels like is just posturing and jockeying. I mean what possible end game can Putin be looking to achieve? It is entirely possible that the market will freak out over all of this and shed 30-40% within a short period of time but some of your commentary seems to be mulling over the possibility of a WWIII type of scenario. I personally find any thought along these lines as misguided and irrational for investing (obviously not trading). I don't take Putin to be a fool which is pretty much what you would have to believe if you thought full scale war between the US/NATO forces and Russia was a distinct possibility. Best case scenario for Putin if that happens is we end up with Mutually Assured Destruction or something close to it. But hey let us say I'm wrong and that full scale war does break out. I'm pretty sure that money tied up in the stock market will be the least of anyone's problems.

  • Barrett Business Services: An Excessive Pullback Over Earnings Creates A Major Buying Opportunity [View article]
    This has trap written all over it. I would advise anyone looking at this to hold off investing in this name until after their 2015 Q1 report. Even if the loss is just a 1 time charge and even if their reserves are at an acceptable level now I would wait to see the full effects that the California state senate bill has upon their business.

  • PDUFA date approaches for Lymphoseek expanded label [View news story]
    145 comments and 144 are some variance of bashing NAVB. Nobody long the stock would demonstrate this sort of behavior. Even an avid short seller would have more than a 3 stock comment history. It is one thing to be a basher but at least be honest about whether or not you have a long position.

    Exactly what I was thinking jrnpanther. If you have a trader's mentality I guess that sort of thinking makes sense but otherwise it really doesn't.

  • You Would Have To Shoot Me To Buy Sturm, Ruger & Co At Today's Price [View article]
    Since politics do play somewhat a part in your opinion how do you see the midterm elections playing out. Specifically the Senate.

  • Nintendo: The Strategy Is To Not Pull A Sega [View article]
    Nintendo's problem for their console is not their first party games it is the lack of support from 3rd party developers and lack of other entertainment options available on whatever console they release. Buying another gaming studio is not going to fix any of the issues they are having.

  • NII Holdings: What Are The Possibilities? [View article]
    The biggest issue with NIHD is they will have no leverage to command any sort of equal value from their assets from selling now. Their assets have value, but you now have to assume they get 10 cents on the dollar now that they have no leverage. And since they have to pay off their debt and then bond holders first it is very unlikely anything will be left over for stock holders. At best watch news on NIHD to try and gauge how much interest there is in their assets from other companies, but as of right now it is hard to make an argument that there is any interest in their assets at anything resembling fair value.

  • Regado Biosciences: Seeking A Second First Impression [View article]
    No position in the stock and I agree with your analysis. The only reason to buy here is if REG-1 can somehow despite this blow make it to market. What % chance would you assign to REG-1 ever making it to market? I have the odds at far less than 1% but as someone who hasn't done as much research on this name or small biotechs in general I may be too pessimistic. Without REG-1 this is headed to penny stock land because of the cash burn and how far away the rest of their pipeline is from market regardless of any promise their remaining pipeline may hold.

  • Nintendo: The Strategy Is To Not Pull A Sega [View article]
    Why couldn't Nintendo go third party for consoles and stay first party for their handhelds? They aren't going to win the console war and third party developers (at least any quality ones) are not going to come back in droves to support any new console they have in the next cycle because the specs are likely to still be a downgrade to the XBOX/PS/PC market. Very hard to justify a console if the only thing people are buying on it are first party titles.
