  • Stop Paying Me A Dividend And Start Buying Back Shares [View article]
    Ira + dividend paying shares = unambiguous good. Furthermore there is a time and place for a company to pay dividends and there is a time a place to buy back shares.

  • Get Out Of Bitcoin Now [View article]
    I can tell you from years of observation that the feeling of being "amazed" that the price of something with no fundementals is holding up is always your gut telling you of imminent collapse.

  • Today in Commodities: Calm Before the Storm? [View article]
    These articles are daily wrap ups from the point of the author. I like reading them. They are short and provide insights when strange things are afoot.

    You imply an agenda regarding trading activity. I don't see that at all. I see a daily article that is easy to read, free, and whose only agenda is to advertise the insights of the author. Read the about Matthew Bradbard paragraph for the details.

  • The Correction May Not Be Over [View article]
    I fear inflation. Even though I totally believe that we are in an intense deflationary environment, I am afraid that if I just hold 50 percent cash that inflation will suddenly appear and screw me. So My cash position is sitting in anti-inflationary (definately not cash) hedges instead. Or in layman's terms I'm long and what would normally be cash is short instead.

  • Copper, Gold and Coal Poised to Break Out [View article]
    Fritz,

    TraderMark has hundreds of articles here and at Fund My Mutual fund and not all of them about the chart angle. Lots and lots of them are fundamental analysis. Charting has been around many years and it's just a tool in the toolbox.

    And no picture? Seriously? If you need to know more about the man just use your right mouse button:

    1) Click on Fund My Mutual Fund link at the top of this page.
    2) Click on "About Me" at the top of the homepage.
    3) Click on the link to the Barron's story
    4) Then read the story.

    Aw heck that's probably tuff I'll just paste in a paragraph here for you:
    "
    Trader Mark -- a.k.a. Mark Smith -- had no idea he could grow up to be a professional money manager back when, as a teen, he began investing for family members. But now, at the tender age of 35, armed with an economics/finance degree and a couple of decades of market experience, he's decided to start his own mutual fund.
    "

  • Another Perfect Storm Brewing for Markets and the Economy [View article]
    Lol old scapegoat. Do you have title to your primary residence? Are you sure? For a direct response to your question read Ritholz's opinion of this....oh heck I'll paraphrase it:
    "This isn't about faulty documents, it's about RULE OF LAW"

  • Why I Expect WTI To Go Back To $100 [View article]
    I'll join the choir on this one. Excellent article.

    I'm one of those people that wants the price of oil high as an incentive to developing viable substitutes for oil. Until I see those substitutes on the horizon I have that bias. When I can step away from that bias I just see oil demand jumping high and hard whenever prices get near 65 bucks a barrel.

    This current move down at the beginning of winter has me as skeptical as I can possibly be.

  • 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.

    Lol bbro. He forgets to put his usual disclaimer about historical perspective in and you are all over him.

    In my opinion Mr. Short in the top 5 percent of contributors to this site along with Chuck Carnevale. I want to hear all the voices and all the angles thank you very much.

  • Banks are taking longer and longer to complete the foreclosure process. According to new data, people who default on their mortgages can expect to stay in their homes rent-free for 492 days, or more than 16 months, up from 382 days last year and 244 days in August 2007.  [View news story]
    Good point bbro.

    I would like to point out though, that the blog sphere is doing the same thing with this data. The robo signing scandal lit up the blogs on the "too fast!" side and this awful 492 days datapoint has them pounding the table on the "too slow!" side.

    That datapoint should not be rising at this point. The banks have had over a year to develop legitimate processes to plow through the foreclosure dump. They are just extending and pretending and they are collecting servicing fees on the defaulted loans as long as they can.
