  • S&P 500 Breakout?  [View article]
    I certainly have come to respect Jim Paulsen with his balls on call
    on those hideous and obvious to some cdrs why ? It cost him to look
    wrong but he kept coming back until what he knew paid off in one of
    the biggest trading coups in history.

    The problem that I have with "reads" from major players on Market direction however is that foreboding suspicion that is the way they
    want all the other guys to go.

    Hope I'm wrong as I've thrown in pretty good before all this flap on the "magic" 1050 S & P.

    Another guy enamored of that number is Rich Grasso down on the
    NYSE, a frequent contributor to CNBC (Unless he's wrong and gone) and I don't give a damn what that man says........
    (Any relation to Dick Grasso guys ?)
    Adios and good trading !

  • Trouble Brewing in the Bond Market?  [View article]
    Much of the Bond Funds performance in both yield and quality will
    depend on the deftness of the Manager.How was he/she before and
    for how long ?

    The "herd mentality" theory is certainly valid as we have seen in the past with stocks,especially leading into 2001 in the techorama craze.

    I don't see the same rationale working with good Bond Fund managers if they are willing to suffer in yield for quality.

    Gotta know your Manager.

    Good piece.......you have to tell us how you really feel.

    Next time don't hold back. I smell arrogance on their part once again and we know what comes after that.

    Failure !!!!!!

  • Why Dick Bove Is Wrong About Citigroup  [View article]
    Bove has a press enabled reputation as one who is more relevant
    than the next analyst.He is not ........but like a few others his calls can effect stock price regardless of other sensible measures.

    And as you have outlined a real rattlesnake when questioned.

    Citi remains a bloated entity in need of true leadership that it wil never get with Pandit or Dick (what's his true role ?) Parsons.

    Peace out ...........

  • Emergent Biosolutions: Buying Opportunity  [View article]
    How can one exclude "lumpy sales" from the future of EBS when
    the Government is such a large piece of sales ?

    Would you not consider EBS a "one trick pony" who is also a hostage
    to SNS ?

    To me that's two strikes too many.

  • After Long Run, Apple Chart Turns Bearish  [View article]
    You know what........boys and girls ?

    APPL is going a lot higher (try 250) and this piece only re-enforces
    my disdain for chart readers.

    Oh yeah....once in awhile they hit a single
    off a nice slow moving pattern but overall they simply give solid
    fundamental, patient investors a shot at putting on a position at a
    "steal" price if enough readers fall into the drivel !

    Good investing be yours,

  • China Automotive Systems: Now That's a Breakout  [View article]
    Oh I'm a believer Mark.....I'm not smart enough for charts and I like it that way.

    Where from here on CAAS ? On charts "I dunno" as we are in uncharted waters (could not resist).

    On fundamentals.....Trailing P:E, Forward P:E, Balance Sheet,Cash,
    Debt,Free CashFlow, Industry need, some moat, all more than acceptable.

    That coupled with the fact that the dedicated, hard working Chinese people want what they feel is theirs and they are Western comforts, mobility, and a standard of living comparable to what they see in the West.

    And why not ? All the voodoo naysayer and fear mongers on China are a God send to those arriving late (but not too late) to the possibilities there.

    I will follow your posts if I can figure out how and look forward to your view.

    Good trading and thank you !

  • China Automotive Systems: Now That's a Breakout  [View article]
    Thank you Mark,

    I'm not a chart guy and I'm not sure I would want my sister to marry one either ! I know.....you've heard that one and of course it's opposite
    when it came around to fundamentalist blokes like me.

    Does your chart work give you any indication as to "where from here" ? I did not think so as we are in uncharted waters (could not resist).

    I will be glad to follow your posts and feel I have found one who knows his stuff regardless of method.

    I want to change my screen name to "Where's Mick Flaherty" as he was on to the growth potential of CAAS many moons ago and on these very pages.

    My rationale here ? The usual.......acceptable P:E....good forwrd P:E .....balance sheet ....cash......free cash flow......nominal debt...
    and the burning fact that the Chinese want theirs when it comes to
    all things for a more mobile and convenient life.And why not ?

    Hard working, dedicated people, set free by capitalism !

    As GM comtinues to tank on volume in the U.S. their partnership in China continues to thrive as if on opposite poles.

    I really don't need the usual jibberish as it relates to China with the inherrent fears that come delivered as overdone !

    Thank you and see you 'round the campus.
