  • Lesson Learned: I Was The Sucker [View article]
    I like your articles. They well presented.

    Due Diligence is always the readers responsibility. I sold my shares at 9.83 because it will take some time for this to sort itself out. I just don't know what this kind of situation means for an REIT. I do know that this changes the story for Arcp but I don't know by how much. Eventually this situation will get sorted out and the story for this company will be clear again.

  • October Chicago PMI rises to 66.2 [View news story]
    Not surprising to me. The economy in the Twin Cities and probably Chicago too is roaring.

    hehe. Options are insurance. Smart money bought a big insurance policy in Jan 15 12.50 calls. I wish I had the short that those calls insure!

  • Goldman cuts oil services stocks as it lowers pricing outlook [View news story]
    Arg I bought a week early! When Goldman throws in the towel......

    Seriously though.....Just now, October 2014, the U.S. has become the "swing producer"?? OPEC has lost it's pricing power?? I'll believe that when I see it happen in the middle of winter.

  • Oil: More About Supply Than The Dollar [View article]
    Oil should be easy to analyse because it's really all about supply and demand in it's purest sense. But alas it is not. It's just difficult to get the real supply data from the producers or the real demand data from the users. It's also difficult to get the factors that influence the supply and demand in the correct order of strength and priority.

    I'm just whining. I hope oil price hovers around 85 bucks a barrel for awhile.

  • Red Bull to hike prices [View news story]
    Ah Red Bull. When it first came out I drank one and thought "That WILL NOT sell". LOL at my stupid taste buds. About 10 years later I drank another one and thought "WTF! It still tastes like it did at the beginning? Why is it selling so much???". Still laughing at my stupid taste buds.

  • Can't Keep A Good Buck Down [View article]
    Excellent write up.

    I love to read about currency movements but I just wonder how currency traders can stay sane. Assessing the value of a currency block seems much more like madness than assessing the value of a companies trading shares of stock. Currency seems driven arbitrarily by political whims and central banks agenda.

  • Month-End Consolidation Ahead Of Next Week's Key Events [View article]
    Nuances indeed!

    Soldiers on combat vacation in Ukraine do not count as an invasion force (LOL!), and annexed territory is not an act of war these days. Ukrainians and Russians now hate each other and Russia has no choice but subdue all of Ukraine to stop it from joining NATO. NATO was created to check Russian aggression and it has no choice but to do what it was created for.

    One day we wake up and all the nuances have fallen on the ground.

  • Take-Two jumps on GTA movie hopes, Activision speculation [View news story]
    The set scenes in at the beginning and end of important missions are above average short films. If they can keep the quality in live action then it will be an above average action movie. I bet live action is more expensive though.

    I for one would see opening night though. GTA is a landmark in video games. The movie would be part of the legacy.

  • Today's Market: Cyber Attacks, Russia Attacks And The Market Is Retreating [View article]
    What makes you think Putin does not want kiev? Kiev deposed his puppet. He wants nothing less then a new puppet. If there will be no new puppet then Putin will take Kiev. It's obvious at this point.

  • Europe Drives Capital Markets [View article]
    It is indeed war at last. No plausible denial and the "Ukrainians" and "Russians" are hating each other outright. Nationalism is in full bloom and there is no stopping it now. I wonder how much of east Ukraine will satisfy Putin and his friends? Maybe they want Kiev? They probably do want it. Awesome developments.
