  • Best Buy (BBY -3.3%) trades weak as any visibility on the retailer remains cloudy at best. On the news front, the company continues to catch criticism over the compensation package given to new CEO Hubert Joly. [View news story]
    Isn't it funny how distressed companies, which are poorly managed, reward their CEO's and other big muckity mucks with huge salaries? They don't give a damn about the shareholders, and their employees are probably getting laid off.

  • Off 2.2% today in the wake of a crop report confirming what everybody already knew (a very short crop), corn may also be fading on a rumor the White House could be open to waving the ethanol requirement for fuel. [View news story]
    When establishing the ethanol mandates, didn't the stupid government see the possibility of droughts? I saw that. Such absolute incompetence!! Now that Obama is considering waiving the mandates, look at how this artificially interferes with the market.

    Politicians are worthless.

  • Why Grains Investors Should Look At Agribusiness ETFs [View article]
    I am looking for a good, double short agricultural ETF. I bought AGA, but it is not a good one because the sponsor is not issuing any new shares. Any others? Thanks.

  • JPMorgan (JPM) has yet to resubmit its capital plan to the Fed, suggesting stock buybacks won't start again until 2013 (CEO Dimon said last month he hoped for Q4). In general, Dimon isn't a fan of buybacks, usually seeing better uses for firm capital. [View news story]
    That a boy, Jamie. You are a real entrepreneur, imo. I don't like cash dividends either, preferring that that money also be used to reinvest in the company's business.

  • Citigroup (C) declares $0.01/share quarterly dividend, in line with previous. Forward yield 0.1%. For shareholders of record Aug 06. Payable Aug 24. ex-div date Aug 02. (PR)  [View news story]
    What? a 1 cent dividend on a stock that just had a reverse 10-1 stock split? Wouldn't it cost this Citibank more to process the dividend than the dividend itself?

    Just another stupid move by a company with a history of stupidity.

    Note: I own this stock. Makes me stupid too! :-)

  • Merchants (in a class of seven million) reach a "historic" $7.25B settlement with Visa (V) and MasterCard (MA) over transaction fees, in an agreement that also involves card issuers including JPM, BAC, C, WFC and COF.  [View news story]
    Well, if they don't get paid for the convenience, they will stop offering credit cards, and then were does that leave the poor populace who are unwilling or unable to stop spending on credit. I own JPM and hope they can charge as much as they can so I make money.l

  • "I'm not going to spend any time on the trading loss," says Hedgeye's Josh Steiner. "What matters here is the ongoing deterioration in JPM's core business." The most basic item for a bank: Net interest income of $11.3B was off 5% Y/Y. Gleamed from the conference call is raised guidance on expenses - "they can't get their costs under control." (see also)  [View news story]
    This is a signal that JPM has hit bottom.

  • AT&T (T) is quick to say "I told you so" to the FCC over T-Mobile's (DTEGY.PK) job cuts; exec Jim Cicconi writes AT&T promised to maintain the call centers T-Mobile is shuttering. "How's this for tactless?" responds GigaOm's Kevin Fritchard, who's quite skeptical Ma Bell would have held onto all 24 of T-Mobile's call centers in the face of massive redundancies. Update: The FCC responds by asserting the merger would have "resulted in significant job losses."  [View news story]
    I agree with you. This immoral company also gave all of its customer information, without their permission, to the government in response to 9/11. This company is reprehensible. Goodbye.

    I sold my T.
    Reason is lack of company values. A company that has no values has no value, in my mind.

    For one thing, they readily sold out private information to the government in response to 9/11.

    These pricks never asked my permission to share my information with the government.
    they did so without my permission.

    Thanks for the article.

    I am thinking of buying this as a hedge for my long portfolio of $200,000 of big cap stocks.

    How many of this etf do I need to purchase to hedge $100000 of this portfolio (50%)?

    Thanks.

  • The ECB says 523 banks requested a total of €489B ($641B) in its "longer-term refinancing operation" in which its providing three-year loans at its benchmark rate of 1%. The figure is well above a consensus of €310B. EU shares add to gains on the news, with U.S. stock futures also jumping.  [View news story]
    The Federal Reserve Bank sent a lot of dollars over to Europe. It is indeed an unholy alliance among the banks and Central Banks, including the Fed. These people are EVIL!
