  • Cramer Does It Again with CIT Call [View article]
    The bottom line is that by the time news or recommendations get to the TV, they are either wrong or too late. Can't fault Cramer for that.

    Why are we bashing a guy on TV anyway? We know the market, we know what to buy and sell and we know what everything market means. We're certainly not protecting his viewers.

    Cramer is a gnat, sure but we are more than capable of ignoring him. Writing about him is just mean spirited.

    Well thanks for that statement. I believe complete stranger's posts. Especially when they offer nothing to back up their statement.

    Here's some crazy talk from a reputable firm. Stansberry predicted that GE would be bankrupt in two years.

  • A key selling point for gold, of course, is that it's a store of value that's hard to make disappear. Which is why some are troubled that the serial-numbered Friday physical bar listings from GLD - the largest U.S. gold-backed ETF - shrank from over a thousand pages to around 200 for a couple of weeks this month, before jumping back to 855 pages after growing online chatter.  [View news story]
    This statement is not true. I can maintain my 401 in stocks that I choose. It costs more but I control it. And that includes precious metals.

    While I agree with you on all points, it would be nice if you mentioned the dollar in this article. It has a factor as well.

  • Insiders Are Still Not Buying the Rally [View article]
    You all are missing the main fundemental reason for why there is insider selling, their companies are hurting.

    Revenues are down all over the place significantly. The high stock price is just a bonus.

    America better start manufacturing again soon or it's going to be screwed. If you ask me, screw China and stop buying anything they make. Buy American and revitalize our economy within our own borders.
