  • As Boeing makes short list for 777X site, Washington state looks to Airbus [View news story]
    I've lived in quite a few states - the educational system strongly correlated with the type of workforce I had to deal with. Southerners from states that invested in education are just as smart if not smarter than northerners. It is not what part of the country you are from, what counts is whether or not the area you live in has a good educational system. SC is ranked near the bottom in this regard.

  • Don't Buy Cisco Just Yet [View article]
    As I stated above, a lot of the selling will be done before the end of the year, for tax reasons.

    So they were educated in Washington? Do you know how poor the schools are in SC?

    I knew they would do it very slowly - what other way? Market up over 100.

  • Housing Starts jumps 22.7% to 1.09M [View news story]
    Do you see rents increasing with a boom in rental building and low inflation? If seniors are smart - they rent the first year when moving to a new locale just in case they find that it is not a good fit for them.

    "The cost savings associated with moving to South Carolina, where workers are paid nearly half of what workers in the Everett, WA plant make, are now for naught. The Everett plant will be counted on to make up the difference.

    For Boeing, the news is only getting worse as one of their largest global competitors, Airbus, is looking to move to Washington state to build their new engineering center. Airbus Americas Chairman Allan McArtor explained the move:

    We are attracted to Washington state for the same reason we were attracted to Wichita. That’s where the talent is,” he said. “If you want to have access to the talent that developed over the last 100 years of aviation, Washington is very fertile ground.”

    Europeans value a good education - what you will not find in South Carolina.

    So far Boeing's production in SC is dismal. You get what you pay for.

    Year end selling for tax reasons may drive the stock down further. Buy after the 1st?

    There is a lot of cash buying out there - not necessarily by individuals.

    A lot of buyers are US investment firms setting up rental properties. Usually inflation is a landlord's friend - and with a lack of it there will be little pressure for rental rates to rise. kind of curious how this will pan out.
    Oh, and most of the buyers (a majority!?) are not from China.

    You should live where I do - on Thursdays all the gas stations raise prices as much as $0.30 per gallon, just in time for the weekend. Prices retreat again on Mondays.
