  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Wyo..... I could care less about what you think and in fact I find it quite an honor for you to expose your hate towards me as that is par for the course for you as you spew your hate on a daily basis with those that disagree with you. At least I let it go for a while until the likes of you require me to respond to your hateful comments.

    Also, I will be the adult and not insinuate what your post does. Grow up dude. Btw, what stocks do you like?

    Takefive....

    "But like the State of Texas he's very business progressive. Signed into law the first in nation Dream Act. Don't want no stinkin' fence. Toll roads popping up everywhere. (It's not really a tax, just a user tax... Got it)."

    This is what we do best in Texas.

    How Medicare goes the rest of the reimbursement rates go sooner or later. We will finally have a system that levels the bar and stunt the pay for providers after a decade of yearly double digit increases in what they charged. Greed will be stopped and yes, individuals do need skin in the game and for those that cannot afford it there will be subsidies.

    Remember, we are a society and for capitalism to work we must not discriminate on health care. For those that don't feel health care is a "right", with certain responsibilities, you are on the wrong side going forward and have the option to "move".

    Congress, as of now, is required to be in the Obamacare program. However, it does not require staff personnel to be involved. Watch for a change in Congress requirement prior to Jan 1.

    Youngsters will migrate to FB (assuming a relative social media share) when they grow up. I get they want privacy as all youngsters do but that is a phase and will pass and then they want old friends, parents, etc to know about what's going on. I've seen this play out many times. BTW, I am over 55 and have no interest in being on FB but almost everyone I know, 19-90, is and my wife keeps me posted. Most active users are 22-38 child bearing parents (everybody wants their kids pic out there).

    Very long since May & it's a momentum play.

  • Should You Buy Banks Ahead Of Earnings? [View article]
    The big banks will eventually have their day. Too much drama for me to own individually now so have some in XLF & played KRE (regionals) until about a month ago & sold due to interest rate gyrations. All big ones on my watchlist but just too many lawsuits for me (at this time). Must be patient, IMO.

    Thanks for your article.

  • Today's Market: Focus Upon Tech And Selling A Winner [View article]
    The chart is highly suspect but I guess I will know for sure in 2 weeks when I get into an exchange in my state. At this point, I am assuming the % increases are comparing different type policies with policies that offer different levels of coverage. No way are folks from Ohio going to spend an additional 81% more for an individual policy when comparing like coverages. It does not make sense.

    Gggl... Agreed.

    FYI, Picked at a little M today, might be a bit early but will add as time goes on. Same with JWN as I believe we will have better than expected holiday sales. Gotta be able to hold until Feb 2014 until earnings of retailers start coming out. Been a reasonable move in prior years. But past history does not....... Good luck.

  • Retail watch: Halloween spending could be a bit scary [View news story]
    "How they can even pretend to project a drop like that is beyond me."

    As an ex-retailer, I predict that, once again, Christmas will be up 5% over LY even though the number of shopping days are the least possible from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Maybe substitute with dates until Jan 1 2014 (holiday period) but it doesn't matter as it all are reported for the QTR.

    As for the other event days, who knows.........

    Gotta think that once debt ceiling issue is resolved w/o an extended shutdown or none at all may see a bounce then all up to earnings in October. I'm in a semi holding pattern with 15-18% cash as I got whupped in August 2011. Confident that it won't be a repeat but with folks like Cruz.....who knows.

  • Bakken still has legs and will surprise investors, Goldman says [View news story]
    May exceed expectation but the major play in U.S. Is Eagle Ford where EOG & COP appear to be very efficient. More costly to produce in Bakken, however, I am not clear on land/lease prices vs the two areas.

    Anyone have any insight on lease expense?

  • Apple refreshes iMacs; IHS estimates 5S costs $199 to make [View news story]
    If long AAPL, I suggest being patient. Easier to be more patient since Monday's numbers.
