  • Banro Is Making Good Progress, But Will It Be Sufficient? [View article]
    You might also want to talk about the high quality management in place. John Clarke has a history of success and has move small companies like Banro to $10 stocks ripe for buyout.

  • Draghi gets approval for bond-buying plan [View news story]
    Yes exactly, expect more gold repatriation from TX to CA to Germany to India as everyone walks away from government controlled fiat. The complete destruction of paper money is at hand. No way for Western countries to put the genie back in the bottle and "pay off debts" so the printing presses have no where to go but faster.

  • The Best Option For Greece Is The Catastrophic Option [View article]
    Complete bandaid analogy is appropriate here...either pull it quickly and deal with the pain or deal with a rolling Depression until you are then forced for whatever reason to pull the bandaid later. A decade of Depression seems unnecessary at best.

  • McDonald's global comp -0.3% vs. -0.9% expected [View news story]
    US comp missed by a mile; -1.7% estimate. European's simply can't afford their past healthy eating and are starting down the sedate, obese American path...see ya at Disneyworld!

  • Weak Bounce Wednesday: Here We Go Again [View article]
    these are the debts they are incurring at record-low borrowing costs - what happens when they can no longer roll over their debt at these low rates?

    I'll tell you what happens, the Central bank buys 100% of all issuance until the cows come home.

  • Is DryShips Worth An Investment? [View article]
    Hard to call it an investment at this point but a gamble, yes. Surprised the new government in Greece hasn't started nationalizing businesses to raise cash but looks like management may have this chartered in Marshall Islands, smart.

  • Alpha Natural Resources - A Stock Of Choice For Risk-Taking, Long-Term Investors [View article]
    Hard really to see anything but stabilization of pricing that will allow all these companies to try to get costs to balance out. Bankruptcy is better option to come out debt free and cash flow positive. If natgas prices increase, fracking starts again in earnest and pushes coal down again. EPA and coal plants being mothballed adds to the pressures.
