  • Increase Silver Exposure Through These Miners Before They Take Off [View article]
    why not wait for the imminent silver break-down below $20...and then buy the best companies...instead of recommending all with a broad brush?? this is lightweight analysis.

  • 2 Stocks To Buy, 1 Stock To Sell, What's Next For The Market [View article]
    exciting times....the market can't go much higher on near-term fundamentals...and..can't go down because the government won't let here we sit. differences of opinion, labelled wholly irrelevant, because of dearth of volatility.
    uncle sam backstopping financial asset prices = pathetic.
    bernanke should be hanged.

  • Silver Bay Realty Trust - A Business Model Doomed To Fail [View article]
    well-written. i recently leased a $850,000 house for several years for $2,450/month. SO:

    * to assume these chaps can get that much for $350K-400K houses is ill-conceived.

    *those people are NOT in a position to spend/waste that kind of money on rent.

    why would the stock not do well? the FED is stroking every market participant with a passion for leverage.

    WOW...i hope everyone survived the correction of 2013 unscathed. it was brutal. lasted from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. on wednesday, 3/27. i gotta tell family didn't go out to dinner ONCE during that difficult time. we rough-and-tough baby-boomers really know how to weather the storm and take our medicine.

  • 4 Reasons Why The Cyprus Sell-Off Is Not Over [View article]
    VIX spiked as it should have. The reason the crap Wall Street VIX vehicles didn't move higher has NOTHING to do with lack of fear...but rather the way these things were constructed.

  • The 'Yet-To-Be-Named' Real Estate Bubble [View article] guess is that no one has "commented" on this article because it exudes analysis and intellect...vs...cheer... for the good ole housing market.
    indeed...bernanke is a cancer to free markets (as the greatest price discovery mechanism)... and his shenanigans and gimmickry bolster wall street and financial swashbucklers at the expense of the little guy.
    when i see middle class americans trying to buy a home in CA...and losing out to blackstone, oaktree and colony thinks it's time for bernanke to take a bullet in the back of the head.
    end of story.

  • Worth Repeating: Why Buy-And-Hold In Daily Leveraged ETFs Should Be Avoided [View article]
    thanks for your insightful/prescient comments...that these things might go to zero...AFTER many of them have lost 99% of their value. perhaps, in your next "article", you can tell us SAAB might go under. pinhead.

  • Dear Chairman Bernanke... [View article]
    yeah, yeah...bernanke has bamboozled investors into thinking he can solve problems by printing $$, expanding the taxpayer's (and my childrens'/grandchildr... balance sheet with crap...and the commensurate currency debasement. no one has ever screwed the middle class like this -- who will ultimately get saddled with an oppressively higher cost of living.

  • Linn Energy Is A Buy Below $40 [View article]
    ridiculous leverage + no cash = incredible downside. this is a classic "yield and tease" for unsuspecting retail investors. couldn't come close to servicing debt if natural prices roll over. this stock is no different than flying to vegas.

    end of story...

  • Northwest Biotherapeutics' Warrants: Ticket To Caribbean Or Fast Route To Deep Dungeon? [View article]
    last i checked...a 50% chance of "zero" and a 50% chance of doubling your $$ (+/-) is tantamount to driving to atlantic city. thanks for the analysis.

  • Northwest And ImmunoCellular Can Both Be Big Winners With Their Cancer Vaccines [View article]
    less rambling from the scientifically/intelle... lightweight such as nichols and smithberg...and perhaps IMUC is getting close to a buy?
    AS OPPOSED TO...their cheerleading to move the thing higher after it's already been set in motion.
    good ole smithberg....touts this thing in the face of a cash crunch and an overpoweringly-dilutive impending secondary.
