  • Watch Out For The Buyback Taper [View article]
    Yeah, just keep rates low and screw the widows and orphans who used to be able to earn something near the inflation rate. Damn right wingers, they haven't a heart or soul. They just insist on pointing out that central bank follies always end badly. They must not know that geniuses like those currently running thing are so smart that this time it all will end well.

  • Bank Of America: The Crowd Is Dead Wrong [View article]
    Your fundamental analysis is wonderful, maybe, but the "crowd" is running for the door. How long are you prepared to hold this stock until the market recognizes that you're right? A year, two, 10? Right now the crowd is selling. Trying to catch a falling knife is dangerous to your health. Our measure of the stock went to negative on 04/16 at $16.13 and it is down 8% since. BAC has every chance of becoming an even better buy before your opinion comes true.
    Bank of America Corp BAC 14.84, D1-2, Negative 16-Apr-14 16.13, -8.00%

  • Does Momentum Investing Actually Work? [View article]
    Actually, done right, you will be able to enhance your forensic analysis skills and not be holding great ideas that the market has yet to recognize. That's why we built our system. We spent years owning great value stocks that either became more valuable or just sat as 50 cent dollars for extended periods. Once you have determined what you want to buy, you then merely watch until Mr. Market wakes up to it.

  • Detailed Case To Short The S&P 500: This Time Isn't Different [View article]
    We track market momentum & trends. We have a calculation that warns us when things are changing. So far, the shorts are losing despite the correct fundamentals cited here. With margin debt at all time highs and the RUT at 85x, the odds do not favor the longs. That said, the market can in fact, stay irrational for a very long time and while we watch TWM closely, we cannot suggest a buy until the longs all try to make an exit, which is never orderly

    Nice report but the stock trades by appointment. Hard to buy and harder to sell.

  • JCPennies: Buy For 40 Cents On The Dollar [View article]
    Retailers rarely recover from these things. Best to move on. The assets are worth 10 cents on the dollar.

  • Apple: $54 Billion Crash; China Segment Now Valued At $0 [View article]
    These valuations are great and they are why we also use technical analysis as an adjunct to fundamentals. You can sit on a value stock for years and get nowhere. Value stocks often become even more valuable before they move higher. The combo helps us ID the value then we wait until the market recognizes it. less frustration, more profits, more fun.

  • What 'Intrinsic Value' Might Warren Buffett Assign To Linn Energy Common Units? [View article]
    Thanks for the Very long analysis but the bottom line is that no-one should buy this stock unless it trades at a substantial discount to your estimates - assuming you're right - if for no other reason, as you have illustrated, that they either are cooking the books or are ignorant of correct accounting procedures and the normal cushion one would need to succeed in any investment should be even larger.

  • GOP Hearings On Climate Change May Threaten Entire Green Economy [View article]
    When I was in HS, the media was all hyped about the coming Ice Age. I must've missed it and will likely miss the planet going up in smoke as the tides flood Ohio & Nevada.

    Thanks for a well written explanation of how & why the concept works. We have been using it for the past 7 years with excellent results. That said, past performance is not a guarantee of future success.
