  • FCC delays massive spectrum auction until 2016 [View news story]
    The legal challenge is interesting. What gives the government the right to take spectrum off of one group and auction it off to another group? The spectrum is very valuable and should belong to the tv stations who maintained FCC licenses according to the law.

    Where is the dividend raise? Methinks I will keep selling calls until INTC is called away.

  • Part Of's Core Is Dying [View article]

    Is you short position in the black yet? Has BABA affected AMZN yet. My thesis is BABA will give institutions a alternative to AMZN.

  • Microsoft Is Becoming 'Cool' Again [View article]
    Riddle me this: no matter what the product whether be a car, computer or washing machine people seem satisfied with inferior quality. Cars used to have bumpers and could take small impact without damage. We played bumper tag when I was a kid. Don't try that today you do several thousand dollars in damage. Washing machines used to indestructible now you have to replace them every few years. Computers used to have metal cases, real keyboards with ten key and monitors that did not destroy your eyes. Now we got this surface thing. I had to work on one for a client. Real piece of junk. Windows 8 is not work friendly and the monitor is hard on the eyes. If this is progress I fear for the future.

  • Why I Covered My Gold Short: Is Alice About To Cross The Mirror Into Deflation? [View article]
    This seems to be a case of thinking too much. Place your bets and live with the consequences good or bad.

    Bull case for gold - Most of the world has to be sick of dollar tyranny (if you use dollars you must obey Washington's wishes) the obvious substitute is gold.
    Bear case for gold - every other alternative to the dollar is unappealing.
    So the fate of gold rests with the fate of the dollar.

  • Alon USA Energy Has Lots Of Levers To Pull To Unlock Shareholder Value [View article]
    70,000 barrels a day is not very much in the world of refining and owning a one refinery is like a off shore driller owning one rig. If something bad happens the cashflow of the MLP is wiped out. This will certainly be a volatile and risky investment. Hopefully widows orphans and the elderly avoid this one.

  • China launches World Bank rival [View news story]
    Good. Now let's shut down the world bank and the IMF. Let China have the burden of bailing out shaky EM economies. Argentina would be a good place to start.

    World domination through the until it doesn't. Goldbugs may eventually get their rally. Moscow bought 37 tons of gold recently. Probably a sign of things to come.

  • Algonquin Power: Diversified Canadian Utility With Mainly U.S. Revenues [View article]
    They announced a deal to sell the Wyoming pipeline for $17 mil. I am not opposed to this. Maine an NC are much better markets and the cash position was poor.

  • Microsoft Set To Compete Against Apple In The 'Internet Of Things' [View article]
    When a company has too much cash misadventures such as this are bound to happen. My watch is very smart .... it tells time. It is also smart enough not to tell my location or blood pressure because its nobody else's business.

  • Fed details 2015 stress test details [View news story]
    Originally the purpose of the stress test was to restore confidence in the banking system. Now I fear it has another purpose: to insure that banks do not lend to anyone other than the government and do so cheaply as possible.

  • Update On Crude Prices [View article]
    Speculative demand has been washed out. The current risk premium on a barrel of crude is zero. When this happens it usually takes time for speculative demand to come back. If energy bulls do make a run I would expect that to start in March 2015.
