  • ExxonMobil: The Strongest Of The Supermajors [View article]
    After reading the profile on the authors of this piece, I feel it is nice that undergraduate (as well graduate) students at UA and other universities have an opportunity to try their wings here and elsewhere, but they have no skin in the game and no one should bet the ranch on what they have to say. Hands on experience in the pit of life beats the academy every time.

  • The Attractiveness Of Farmland And Other Alternative Asset Classes [View article]
    Farmland has a "good" (but not great?) Sharpe Ratio but I have always heard that one should avoid Sharpe Ratios under 1.5. Yet you say: "Most exotic alternatives rank well on their risk-return profile." What am I missing here?

  • National Oilwell Varco: A Wonderful Company Selling At A Wonderful Price [View article]
    Take a look at NOV's chart. It's a bottom feeder right now: <5DMA <20DMA
    <50DMA, ETC. "Down derry derry down," quoth the raven.

  • Implications Of Sector Performances For 2015 Using Nonparametric Analysis [View article]
    Pristine, I would say. A nice theory, nicely worked out (sitting at a computer in some ivory tower lab maybe?). Interesting and insightful but you don't talk much about Black Swans, Saudi Arabia and 50 dollar oil. or other unforeseen catastrophes . . . such as what may or may not be happening in Greece of all places. Many (most?) excons revert to the mean (i.e.,their former behavior) and end up back in the joint, but not all of them. Some go straight and are "saved." Would it were so with investors.

  • Peabody Energy Has Major Competitive Advantages [View article]
    Coal: dirty energy? And perhaps a sin stock right up there with unfiltered cigarettes? Take a deep breath, hold your nose, and go buy something else.

  • Why You Should Not Sell Your Oil Stocks At A Loss [View article]
    When there is blood in the streets, or, in this case, black gold, it is pretty difficult to think about "Silent Spring." Tra la . . .

  • How The Europe Small-Cap Portfolio Changed At The Rebalance [View article]
    It would be nice to get some unbiased, disinterested analysis on DFE and in particular on this method of re-balancing and what effect it might have on the average investor's holdings. Mr. Schwartz has a nice smile but is his analysis disinterested?

  • Supreme Court Seems Ready To Time-Bar Financial-Crisis Litigation For Bank Of America, Others [View article]
    So why don't you sell your stock and go home? "Fascist" is a trigger word used to elicit an emotional response rather than rational discussion. Readers pass by, this "writer" has nothing to say.

  • Bank Of America Unprepared To Pay Billions, Outlook Dark For Shareholders [View article]
    Speak for yourself, funfun. Seems as if you spend most of your time trashing BofA instead of coming up with solutions and/or suggestions which might help readers of these columns. Take invective and emotion out of it. Where have you heard that before?
