  • Can You Lose Weight And Make Money With Weight Watchers? [View article]
    It strikes me that such optimism isn't really based on solid analysis. The technicals don't support the purchase of stocks or options, unless it's shorts or puts. The PSAR was headed downward for almost all of January, was positive for 3 or 4 days, and looks to be headed down again. The DMI is negative, as is the OBV (on-balance-volume), and the stochastics are bearish. Also, they have missed earning estimates for the last 3 quarters. Of course, if you are a contrarian (a la Bernie Schaeffer), you would think that most analysts having a "HOLD" rating would signal buy. I think I would wait for the earnings report and maybe buy puts, or just look elsewhere.

  • Commodities Today: Oil And Potash News To Possibly Move Stocks [View article]
    Have been trying to figure out why POT has been dropping daily, including options. From the world demand, the uncertainty in the Russia/Belarus, conflict in the Middle East (another large source of potash ore), I would think that the shares of POT (Potash Corp., Saskatchewan would be rising. Any ideas as to why the decrease in share price? Is there some internal/management problem(s)?

  • Shale Oil Exploration In The East Coast Basin Of New Zealand [View instapost]
    It seems to me that I've heard about some other areas of energy-development interest in New Zealand. Am I just imagining it?

  • Looking For Growth Economies: Getting The Right Ingredients [View article]
    I noticed that, while screening ETFs in Scottrade, that some of the best (from a return standpoint) were for MSCI Sweden, Hong Kong, Thailand (THD), and Switzerland. Of these, obviously, the THD is from the least-developed overall economies. Of course, one of the reasons that THD is doing so well is that hard drive (for computers) mfrs. have production plants there and other hi-tech mfrs have followed suit. They got whacked big time with the tsunami and horrendous rain last year (or the year before?).
    If one is looking for a pretty good return on foreign markets, Artisan has several excellent foreign (ARTIX) and mixed/global (ARTRX) mutual funds (hope that's not heresy in this internet environment).
    Anyway, I'm unloading a Columbia emerging mkts fund and about to reinvest (within our IRAs) in one or more ETFs. Can't decide whether to pursue "energy" or emerging markets.
