  • 'The Giving Pledge' Runs Into Unwarranted Controversy [View article]
    Yes, Buffet is one example of the giving not going to his family. I suppose that my point was more the fact that they are essentially retaining control of their money. Even though the organizations are "non-profit" they are not "non-salary-paying" and who are the ones getting paid at these foundations.
    So, while I don't necessarily think what they are doing is "pure evil" I don't think this is being done purely out of the kindness of their hearts. Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, as I said earlier, it's just my opinion.

    My personal opinion, FWIW, is that they are just looking to give their money to their heirs tax free by "donating" it to their own family charity.

  • Alcoa (AA): Q2 EPS of $0.13 beats by $0.01. Revenue of $5.2B (+22.2%) vs. $5B. (PR)  [View news story]
    That's not important. What's important is that they beat estimates, and that's the headline.

  • Warren Buffett says the economy is showing signs of "real strength" thanks to increased manufacturing activity and improved consumer demand as people regain confidence.

    Once again Buffet had great timing...

  • BP shares appear headed for their first weekly gain since the Gulf oil spill began, as relief wells are said to be progressing ahead of schedule. BP's first relief well is about 600 feet from intercepting the spill. BP +1.8% premarket.  [View news story]
    This is purely a bet at this point and not an investment. What's going to happen to the stock price when the first relief well misses it's target?

  • S&P 500: On Track to Reach a 20-Year Low [View article]
    I'd love to see what the P/E average was for pre-1988. Is 12.5 historically low or were the last 20 years P/E ratio too high?
