  • "The Summer of the Shark" is the title of Annaly (NLY -1.9%) CEO Denehan-Norris' opening remarks on the earnings call. She reminds the 2001 shark attack panic was much ado about nothing and, likewise, today's concerns about mREITs are par for the course for an industry that survived and thrived through previous refi panics, Fed tightening cycles, and the global financial crisis. [View news story]
    I have bought and sold Reit's for 6 years and mostly just kept NLY, not selling it.

    Buy Low / Sell high / Buy low with reit's and stocks.

    Buy high and it will sometimes take a year or more of high dividends to break even. A loosing year for that capital.
    Now, that takes a 'bite' out of your portfolio!

  • Promoting Equality Cheapens Us All [View article]
    Thank you for a very well written article on subjects that needed clarification for most investors. I am surprised you are long Facebook, did you get an insider price? If not then why did you buy since your article clearly shows the people who buy at the market are going to take a bath.

    I am not surprised either that Zukerberg took profits on 2 billion of his shares on release day.

    I think his hoodie is o.k. at the office, but an ignorant and stubborn way to behave in corporate sales offerings and group meetings with wall street.

    They probably think he's an ass for it. It will come back to bite him.
    When the stock crashes as it must because it can't sustain that price, stockholders will react very negatively to this cocky behavior, especially Facebook members, who will rebel and quit the "book". You heard it here first.

    I couldn't agree with you more about the separation of society.

    We are not a melting pot of people, we are a pot filled with each group and nationality sticking together. That's just social nature and it will always be that way. Bill G.

  • Understanding Risk on the Revenue Side: Wal-Mart vs. Apple [View article]
    Wall mart is adapting its product line to include things like Generic cereals. 14 oz. Wall Mart generic Raisin Bran costs $1.66 while the real deal raisin bran is $5.00 at most economy supermarkets. The generic Wall*Mart tastes better too.

    96 oz. of real 100% juice, is selling for $2 each at Wall*Mart.

    That's a dollar cheaper than other low price stores. (both are from concentrate).
    Pub

    Plus they have cash and can buy up overstocked goods cheap. I expect there will be a bit of that going on as companies cut back or fold up.

    They have the cash option to buy out leveraged suppliers and thus add to profit while lowering overhead.

    Wall*Mart has less electronics and expendable consumables like TV sets, etc. Video game sales companies are down already, and headed for the dump.

    Wall*Mart has a winning adapting market stratagy.

    I own AAPL but am considering adding some Wall*Mart on a dip.
