  • I'm Doubling Down On Gramercy Property Trust [View article]
    Brad, I was looking for a REIT a year ago when I stumbled on your article about up & coming companies. As a novice I didn't have much to invest but took a gamble on GPT @ <4.50. I like that it has remained stable & gone up a bit, but I really like getting dividends (which I reinvest into more shares through my on line trade account). I appreciate not only the articles but commentary as I read more and learn more about how to use the market to my benefit. I'm fast approaching when I walk away from my 110K job and will need to depend on my 401K & SS. I'd like to provide myself with more cushion and income before I am required to tap into those resources. Thank you all for some very valuable lessons.

  • Report: Canada weighs Keystone XL challenge under NAFTA after U.S. dodge [View news story]
    'why' is because Warren Buffet has a huge investment in oil transport via rail. Once he bails on the rrs and buys TRP his bought uncle tom (aka Obama) will engage the pipeline.....

  • Sharks Are Closing-In On Clean Energy Fuels [View article]
    With the increase in the debt ceiling this week which is more borrowed from China & last years agreement btwn CLNE & the Chinese investment into the "NG Highway', Obama has no choice now but to bow even lower to China to get CNG/LNG on the market & push for more vehicles to go CNG/LNG. Even I (who know absolutely NOTHING about financials except keeping my bank account in the black) can see the writing on the wall. Politics are a big player in the energy markets - and it's all pointing to an incredible surge in NG! BO is playing to his most favorite cronies in business right now, but China will flex it's muscles sooner than later and he'll have to cave. Because of taking into consideration the bit's & pieces from the last 2 years (and Pelosi's financial disclosures) I'm taking advantage of the price and buying more.

    But mostly becuase I remember driving down the highway and saying "What the heck is a WAWA?"

  • Clean Energy Fuels: The Story Still Is Evolving [View article]
    Do you not read the compatible articles? On other postings I've learned that Cummins is ramping up LNG engine production for long haulers (domestic & overseas) and even large pickups (construction, farmers, tradesmen & truck lovers) will be LNG compatible in 2014. Other diesel engines could also be converted (think Mercedes) .
    And here's an area you might not think of. We're RV'ers and either we'll convert our 330 Cummins diesel to LNG or buy a newer one with the engine in place. It eliminates the need for use to haul both diesel (driving & generator) & propane (cooking, furnace & water heater). I can use one fuel source at a cheaper price. I'm good with that.

  • A Short History Of Commodity Bulls; Why This One May Be Different [View article]
    Newbie investor here (and not a trained in 'market speak', I'm an Aernautics Engineer Tech), but I appreciate the article and all the comments. - I'll have to draw my own conclusions. But I don't think anyone should look at only US weather related crop cycles. Worldwide is a much better view and there are other food producing areas that have been much harder hit for a longer period and continue to be so, putting more strain on hopefully recovering mid west crops.
    I also think one must also look at demographics as more Americans are moving to these areas for jobs and tax breaks, putting more strain on the Ogallala aquifer (which is depleting) and other water sources.
    My only dilema is deciding what type of crop investment to add to my portfolio, as I think it will help on the long term (I think you say "Going Long?").

  • CNBC Contributor Carol Roth cites the U.S. Army's decision to award a $77M contract to upgrade the M4 rifle to a Belgian-based company as an example of how unions are hurting the workers they're meant to protect. FN Herstal will manufacture the gun in the right-to-work state of South Carolina, having been able to underbid Colt and Remington, both of which would have made the rifle in non-right-to-work states. [View news story]
    Truth is that the Dept of Defense has been on Cost Reduction (CR) basis for the last 18 months and have been directed by the 'boss' (read executive branch) to go with the low bidders - regardless of unseen cost overruns, lack of exprerienced personel (meaning lower wages) , et.....CR hit way before sequestration. We seen the effects all over the DC/VA/MD area since last November.
    The fact that the company is in a right to work state just means by setting up there, they were able to keep costs down by not having to pay graft money to the unions. Good for them!

  • Sturm, Ruger & Co. Will Lead Smith & Wesson Higher [View article]
    The S&W .38 is still the go to weapon for women. I know 4 that have purchased one in the last 2 weeks ( & mine is on order :) ). Since guns sales for women are increasing I can only agree that S&W and others will be seeing gains.
    Funny that I bought the stock 1st @ 8.32 - just call it woman's intuition!
