  • Surging Eagle Ford Oil To Outproduce Bakken - 5 Top Companies To Consider [View article]
    Granite Wash is worth looking at. It has Eagleford like elements. Hogshooter formation.

    Newfield would be excellent with less debt. 3 billon a 3 bill market cap is a lot in a flat to lower WTI world.

    everything grows in Texas...

    no state income tax, right to work, business friendly administration

    not just energy - plenty of life sciences, technology and other non resource businesses. also a great place to start a business.

    take this and apply accross the US.

  • New Zealand's GDP grew a much faster-than-expected 1.1% in Q1, helped by a rise in agriculture and business services. Economists had targeted 0.5% growth. It's NZ's fastest pace of growth in nearly five years, but some strategists worry "the large rise will only cast further doubt on the veracity of the national accounts data, which have been subject to considerable revisions recently."  [View news story]
    surely...a joke

  • Retirement Income: Don't Forget About Inflation [View article]
    too much money chasing too few goods - that is true cause inflation - it is monetary and demand drive hitting into capacity contraints and it is an issue when it flows into wages and expectaions and gets embedded.

    equities are a pretty good hedge against this - unless the inflation is high >5 to 10% or caused by temporary issues such has oil price shock - which generally hit demand as well as increasing costs.

  • U.S. job openings in April totaled 3.4M, down from 3.7M in Machr, the Labor Department reports. Job openings decreased for total non-farm, private and government as well as in manufacturing, professional and business services, and state and local government.  [View news story]
    you subscibe to the erroneous lump of work fallacy
    more people coming to America is a good thing.

    ask yourself - can you cure unemployment by deporting 10 or even 20 million working people? would that solve it?

    Obama Must Be Defeated. But his stance on immigration is enlghtened.

  • Set Yourself Up To Let Compounding Work Its Magic [View article]
    good advice but hardly anyone - and I mean hardly anyone has the stomach for this

    you buy your stocks and then they go down by 25% - all of them - can you stick with it? or will you panic and sell?

    unless you can answer yes to a question like that then you have no business owning stocks and should not be in the market

    most of you are not old enough but this scenario happened in 1987 and even if you bought the day before the crash - within a short number of years you were well ahead but not if you panicked.

  • Here Comes The Next Big Leg Down In Equities [View article]
    good news

    if stocks go down I buy more and keep buying them until they go up
    if stocks go up I get richer but buy less until they go down again and then I buy more

    that is how you get rich

  • Voting has ended in Greece and the initial exit polls show the race too close to call, with New Democracy (apparently good if it wins) at 27.5-30.5% and Syriza (supposedly bad if it wins) at 27-30%.  [View news story]
    love it

    so I paid over $2MM in taxes over the past 15 years - I know that I have not and will not get that back in services or benefits so I am guessing that a good chunk of that has gone to support a lot of other people and programs.

    that $2MM - excludes property and state income and sales taxes - all of which end up going elsewhere.

    I save my money - invest for the future - work 80 hours per week and know that I will need to work until I am well into my 60's before I can retire. I lead a company of about 800 employees and most of my wakin hours are spent making sure that we can continue to attract and retain the best people and continue to grow our company.

    And for all of this I get told I am not doing my fair share - that more is needed from me - not the 50% who pay no income tax or the 90% who in aggregate pay the same as the 1%.

    If for no other reason - this economic nonsense is reason enough to get rid of the Redistributionist in Chief - the Prince of Panderers - the Campaign Meister. The Idiot Obama.

  • Cramer's Lightning Round - Steve Ballmer Is Going To Redeem Himself (6/15/12) [View article]
    He is a fool but not for the obvious reasons. I believe you should wait

    Their recent issues are not execution problems - Cramer's wrong on that - they made a deliberate strategic call. They are drilling a range of areas to lock in leases - some of these are less attractive or prospective but still good overall. This is longer term good for the Company but short term bad since they dilute their effort. If they fully exploited their best options they would max today but over the longer run be worse off.

    This is a classic case of a Company operating not for the current or next two or three Q's but for the next 2 to 5 years. The reaction has been negative but insiders are buying.

    In 18 months - Cramer will be telling you what a genius he was for reccing this. That is his way. Ex Hedge fund guy - he does not think long term. He cannot.
