  • My Best Investment Advice: Watch Your Fellow Investors And Do The Opposite [View article]
    Chuck, great thoughts as usual. It's my experience that there are many smart people out there that are still confused as to what an investment really is. They can't see past the headline, and they are too high-strung to look at the long-term story of a company. You don't need to read many of my comments to figure out that I'm no bull right now, haven't been for a long time. That being said, I've made a few purchases recently...Including MCD and ETN today at the close. You have to make those adds when it hurts.

  • Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton (ETN) acquires Gycom's electrical low-voltage power distribution, control and automation components business in Sweden, Denmark and Finland for an undisclosed sum.  [View news story]
    These guys have really been on the prowl lately. Add a small amount 30 seconds prior to the close.

  • Why I'm Still Bullish Despite BHP'S Olympic Dam Project Delay [View article]
    Good information on a great company. The world economy is obviously the biggest player in this company's future. Three is another factor in play here. All of the major miners are having a hell of a time filling manning requirements. There has been a big push to bring in skilled labor from Europe (and now North America) but they haven't been able to keep up.

    Of-course, the other factor in play is this ridiculous extra tax being targeted at the one industry that has kept Aus from following the rest of the western world into recession.

    "I like CEF's because of the volatility and the fact that the flight of nervous retail investors can frequently provide wonderful entry points."

    Precisely!

  • Kraft Foods - A Forgotten Dog Of The Dow [View article]
    Food-stocks are going to give you some rare earnings surprises the next few quarters. They are the most direct beneficiary of the ongoing drop of commodities.

  • Carl Icahn discloses a 7.56% stake in Chesapeake Energy (CHK +1.5%) via 13D filings. Icahn: "If you continue to arbitrarily refuse the request we have made for shareholder representation, we, as activists, will immediately take whatever 'actions' we feel are necessary to protect the value of this company."  [View news story]
    Except that debt is, for the most part, tied to holdings and/or production. In a world of massive de-leveraging, who would be willing?

  • The E.U. will make a final ruling on June 27 regarding a $1.1B fine levied on Microsoft (MSFT) in '08 for failing to comply with an order to share information about its server OS products to guarantee networking software interoperability, and release a version of Windows that doesn't feature Windows Media Player. The ruling could have implications for Intel's (INTC) attempts to overturn a $1.33B fine levied in '09.  [View news story]
    The EU will probably ask for the fine to be paid in gold.

    unless it was in the past week, they haven't made much money on it.
