  • Why Buy Long-Term Treasuries? Dividend Growth Retirees Should Consider It For Ballast [View article]
    Proper diversification includes TIPs, corp. debt, floating, munis, preferreds, etc. Own the actual bonds, start building early to keep the average of everything closer to par, ladder them in, hold to maturity; and if you take the big hit at maturity, immediately roll it back in (if you can). It's not sexy, but it works well if all you need is the income.

    People tend to think of bonds in the same time frames that they think of their stock portfolios, which is a mistake.

  • Want To Bet On Crude Rebounding Without Buying Oil Stocks? Buy Solar Stocks Instead [View article]
    Excellent theme. The delay certainly won't be as long either (when oil recovers) as it has been in the past.

    companies won't truly "show" the pain, by earnings reports, until another quarter or two. That's when you should invest.

    Took a small position awhile back and was quickly stopped out...probably 6 months early on that trade. Ultimately, I think REXX survives this though.

    Nat gas had its supply issues way before oil did and probably needed to be down here a long time ago, so none of us should be too shocked, in hindsight. We might see a name like RRC move off the bottom before REXX brings any happiness (a little more market recognition) though.

  • Rosenberg's Fatally Flawed Rationale -- Dollar Strength Is Already Kicking Off A Profit-Killing Tightening Cycle [View article]
    Regardless of who will be right and who will be wrong, it seems that this macro event is, at minimum, an excellent excuse to report those bad line items that they've been sitting on...just putting it all under the umbrella of "exchange."

  • A Crude Oil Bottom: Where To Look For Clues [View article]
    At some point low-cost oil will also add an additional stability concern in the mid-east. The Saudis are obviously putting the screws to their business rivals and their political rivals in a single thrust. A greatly expanded Arab Spring is bad for the whole region though.

  • Why I'm Building A Short Position In Bonds [View article]
    Wonder how that TBT trade is doing? 15% down? In a troubled, deflationary world rates could stay low for years...No, years and years. There is no certainty. People have been predicting the end for years now. There isn't a single person pecking away on this site that is smart enough to call rate trends. Individual stocks, yes. Industries, a hesitant yes. Commodities, eh-maybe. Interest rates, h..l no!

    Brett, I really like the domestic retail angle here. What, we are about 6 weeks out from black Monday? The timing couldn't be better. Buy now, sell two weeks out from Christmas. GPS and TGT are my trades.

    How about domestic restaurants also? Low input costs right now.
