  • Reading China's Fortune [View instapost]
    Chris, so why not just purchase $YANG and avoid the borrow and rebate fees of shorting $YINN? I guess with YANG you would be in danger of the constant leverage trap of a 3x leveraged ETF, but if you are only planning on holding it for a matter of months, certainly not for number of years, I would assume that YANG would help you avoid the fees associated with shorting.

  • Digirad Corporation's (DRAD) CEO on Matt Molchan Q4 2014 Results -- Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I share your feelings Robert. I started a small position at about $3.60 a share. I'm wondering if I should pick up some more.

  • CBI Gives Investors False Hope [View article]
    Why doesn't this article have a "disclosure" at the end? Something here smells fishy.

    Earthtodan basically said more in one sentence than this entire article.

  • Fed Plans Favor Bank Of America [View article]
    If you wanted to sell your shares today, I'm sorry the timing sucks. For the rest of us, who cares about the recent underperformance. I'm looking to sell between $40-60, after also collecting a dividend and hopefully beating the market for a few years. That's not happening today or tomorrow, but that doesn't mean that it won't or can't. In the mean time, enjoy the drama and keep your fees and taxes as low as possible.

  • Chicago Bridge rockets in early trade [View news story]
    Crap! I own BAC and CBI. It sounds like they may be run by the same person.

  • Chicago Bridge & Iron beats by $0.03, misses on revenue [View news story]
    I've been accumulating on the dip, and now may be the time to buy one last time. I'm sure we'd all love to see this stock catch the elevator up for the rest of this week.

  • Still no agreement in U.S. refinery strike talks [View news story]
    If teens can't work for a place that exploits them, fast food, retail and agricultural jobs would be off the table. What's left?

  • Alibaba And Tencent: Sharing A Taxi, But Not An Uber [View article]
    I only hope this merger somehow creates a way to use one of these apps in English! If you don't read, type and speak mandarin, you get left out.

    I only use Uber now. In shanghai, all the expats are left out of the taxi apps.

    We should all say the same thing about US banks. That stereotype about Chinese companies is only true sometimes.

  • 52-week high for Whole Foods Market post-earnings [View news story]
    We've just had an amazing run from $35 to $56 and you're complaining about yield? I suspect that the yield isn't higher due to WFM's store expansion plan. When store expansions slow down, then complain about yield.
    You may want to hunt in the energy sector if you are looking for better yield/growth opportunities.

  • Need A Reason To Short Chipotle? Try Envy And Misleading Same-Store Sales Statistics [View article]
    I would love to short CMG, but when? I think the next bear market is going to scare many CMG investors out of the stock, and things are going to plummet.

  • Why Xiaomi Is Not A Threat To Apple [View article]
    Now that mobile iOS devices cannot connect to the internet with VPNs, Apple is at a distinct disadvantage in China. Basically the party just took a big chunk of the internet away from mobile apple users.

  • Retail: KFC Coffee Plan Takes Upscale Shot At McDonald's [View article]
    I think "freshly ground" is the key descriptor the author uses. I think I know what KFC is trying to do here. I was in a mcdonalds in Nanjing the other day. It had both a mcdonalds counter and to the other side there was a dessert case and espresso machine. The bakery products all had a striking resemblance to Starbucks products.
    Chinese people don't drink coffee in the morning. KFC is hoping that you'll buy a latte and scone after you eat a bucket of chicken.
