    They are less manipulative, VL; The Fool seem to pump stocks that were a good deal, six months earlier, but about to pop, which is suspicious, to say the least! I don't go there any more...

    Yes, I've noticed that too, jc, and it's gotten so that I only speed read them nowadays...

    Really, CL? Then I can only observe they sometimes don't look very carefully, as I've had several of my posts deleted where I did no more than point out the mendacity of the post to which I was responding! Certain users are very ready to keep their own abusive posts, free of criticism! Personally, I avoid negativity, and have only once notified an abusive article, never a post. Just a personal choice...

    An even better example, DC, is those vibrating belts that fatties still think will shake away their pudding; I once read that the Austrian doctor who invented them, retired at age 35!

  • MobileIron jumps following IPO; BlackBerry ticks higher [View news story]
    And paying ever rising dividends, is not the reason those companies do well. The "do well" bit comes first!

  • Facebook: Mobile Monetization Strategy Is Clear [View article]
    I just tried to sign on to an information sharing site, which required that I sign on via Google or Facebook (why?) so I ended up having to agree to share everything on one of my FB pages and a yahoo mail box (which I also no longer use...) after having to change my password, as I'd forgotten it. Am I the only one who is offended by this trend? I just wanted to try the site as a private individual, and would much prefer to not have to take all my personal accoutrements with me. I'm not interested in telling all the world who I know and communicate with; my intent was to simply ask and answer question, so what does my social situation have to do with it? I really don't like how this is going! As for the site, I never got onto it, as the process went into a loop; I may never get to know if anyone there ever took any interest in my social habits...

    The difference, st, is that JH, like myself, does not take things personally, or get emotionally involved, as you seem to do. I'm not "angry" either; these are just shares like any other, and if we're successful, will be converted to money, eventually, so why all the name calling?

    It may apply to some, JH, but I agree, most of us realists (bears?) acknowledge that FB is doing better than we expected (far better, in my case) and it looks like it will continue to do so! That said, though the time is pretty difficult to deduce at this stage, the market will eventually become a weighing machine, even for FB.

    If Chen is so bullish, re the Z3, why hasn't he released any sales figures?

  • Bank Of America Corporation: Default Probabilities And Relative Value Update [View article]
    Make that "all" the solutions, JBB; as an engineer, I found the simplest solutions always gave the best results (though I could only rarely convince management of this; they always wanted the conventional solution...)! The principle of Occam's razor is an honorary axiom in my book, but though simple is best for the solution, you need to be very complete in your analysis: a solution, like a theory, is only valid if it accounts for ALL the known facts. Unfortunately, in the realms of finances and investing, getting hold of all the known (at least to someone) facts is problematical...

    Hey, it's not just the US; in fact on my threads I seem to interact with more europeans than yanks!

    A small(ish) space between the articles, and the left edge of the screen, would be more visually appealing though!

  • Bank Of America: A $17 Billion Bombshell In The Making? [View article]
    And it really was BIG mistake! I agree that there'll be a "next crisis" too, as any attempts at reform have been so watered down, by the big money men, that nothing has really changed from the last collapse. I think the next one will come sooner than most people expect.

    That's the way it should work, as not even BAC can shrug off an extra billion lost. Nothing's guaranteed, though, and I for one wouldn't mind it going downhill for a few months, until I can buy in myself; it's not going to go bust.

    They'll muddle through, I'm sure, but yes, it will slow things down.
