    Wind,

    The government can't even balance the budget. See you on Mars.

    Puke is a systemic risk. As soon as someone starts hurling, the rest quickly follow... the key to success is to get out of the way before that happens.

    "If not for the ability to focus on the bottom line there would never be a sausage industry"

    That depends on whether you're selling sausage or eating it. It's very similar to the tobacco/alcohol/assorted other vices industries. One side's gain is another side's loss.

    People too often get get wrapped around the axle of meaningless details, cherished beliefs and/or petty partisan politics.

    Bottom line: Some people like to ride the loop-de-loop. I prefer to wait at the bottom and collect whatever falls out of their pockets.

  • Cisco: Getting Clobbered But For How Long? [View article]
    Jammer,

    I heard the same story when it was trading at $30. And at $25. And at $20. The stock buybacks have been a disaster, and Chambers' big mouth somehow managed to tank the stock even after GOOD quarters.

    Forming a base near the $15 bottom isn't very encouraging when you consider that the market has doubled since 2009. What will CSCO do if we go back into recession? Drop to $10 per share? Less?

    Maybe that's a good thing. The next ice age will wipe out 95 percent of the human population.

    "share price dropping does not effect a company's ability to pay dividends. "

    It certainly does when debt covenants get violated.

    Jammer,

    No need to go back 13 years. CSCO was trading at twice the current price five years ago. The overall market recovered from the recession, but CSCO kept going down, down down.

    George,

    I've always been a bottom line sort of guy. It's a quality that's served me well.

    Maybe you should write an article and impart your wisdom upon us all.

    George,

    The eventual raising of interest rates will bring another danger into the equation. Hopefully it will be because of an improving, heating-up-too-fast economy, rather than rampant inflation resulting from a decade-plus of money printing....

    Bottom line: I wouldn't want to be the Fed chairman.

    George,

    I agree, presidents get too much credit (or take too much blame) when things go good/bad in the economy.

    But stock markets anticipate, and not always correctly. When Obama was elected four years ago, there was a good deal of hope, but thus far not enough change.

    Bernanke's goal is to keep rates low, ensure easy money, and keep the stock market inflated (wealth effect keeps people like me spending) . Despite all these tailwinds, the anticipated recovery has yet to occur to any real degree, and (fiscal cliff or not) the possiblity of another recession before 2016 is IMO better than average.

    Bottom line, I wouldn't want to be president.

    kolpin.

    I personally buy back when it's lower, or preferably I try to sell a put at or below my original sell price, giving me an even lower new basis.

    George,

    Are you saying stocks soared because of the White House's skillful deployment of effective fiscal, economic and business growth-related policies?
