  • Annaly: Big Cats Leaving The Sinking Ship - Should You, Too? [View article]
    Which is more relevant --the executives leaving or the recent record amount of insiders buying stock..which I failed to see mentioned in this article.

    IMHO any article, pro or con, that fails to note "both" agenda driven, and would fall in category of tout vs analyst.

  • Good News: Expiration of Bush Tax Cuts Won't Kill Recovery [View article]
    Appreciate your time and efforts on article--but will take more to convince me taxes are good--I'm a tax payor too.

    I remember hearing same back when Bush tax cuts were introduced--and not good on graphs and charts but do remember the greatest tax revenue in history followed--not the doom and gloom projected by Krugman and others.

  • Why The Stock Market Is Rooting For Obama [View article]
    Lets see..I'm to believe investors are rooting for increased taxes on divs and capital gains and redistribution of wealth in general?

    I would expect the same people here were saying same thing in 2008..
    however the market dropped 500 points following his win and 2,000 points in the 12 days that just "a little" common sense would dictate that may not be the case.

  • Wal-Mart (WMT) reportedly plans to deny health insurance to new employees who work fewer than 30 hours/week. The policy change will use an Obamacare loophole to shift the costs of health insurance to the government. [View news story]
    Another drive by media "huffington post" anti Walmart propaganda post.

    I've owned insurance agency in Ky for 30 years and 30 hours has always been #of hours for part time cut off for health benefits for ALL companies..not just Walmart.How easily the sheep are led!

  • Netflix Is A House Of Cards On The Verge Of Collapse [View article]
    Interesting timing had almost identical topic here on Feb 20 2013..

    "Netflix Is A Fragile House Of Cards"

    I see Netflix ended at 187.12 a share on that date and $432 now. Can we assume you shorted it then also? OUCH!

  • Annaly Has Bottomed: Multiple Reasons To Run For The Hills [View article]
    "So I will conclude my article (yes, it may be a rant) by saying that this is impossible. An intelligent investor is one who buys sound securities where he (or she) knows his (or her) principal will be safe and he (or she) will get a fair return"

    ...Now your talking ...could you provide us with those securities that guarantee principal will be safe and we get a fair return?
    I'm sure most readers are looking for such a thing!

    ....Hey come back here :)

    A most prosperous New Year to you and yours!
