  • Futures point higher after week of pain  [View news story]
    @ cowboy53
    If you choose to work in oil and gas, you have to deal with booms and busts. I, for one, am thoroughly enjoying the low gas prices.

    @ NoMoreObaMao
    Look up the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution before you continue to embarass yourself with your handle.

  • Chobani spurns PepsiCo investment, elects to go solo  [View news story]
    Who with properly functioning taste buds likes Chobani? Even Yoplait and Dannon's strained yogurt entries are better, and they're decidedly mediocre.

  • Chinese shares take another beating  [View news story]
    To Viper740:

    At best, your comment betrays your ignarance. At worst, it is not-so-artfully veiled racism against Americans of non-European heritage.

    Many of the European immigrants who came to the U.S. during the 1800s and early 1900s (German, Irish, Scandinavian, Eastern European, Southern Italian) were as poor as the "Third World" immigrants who came over the last fifty years. They did the hard, manual jobs that today's "Third World" immigrants do. They faced the same nativism that today's "Third World" immigrants face. Nonetheless, they assimilated and became Americans the way that many "Third World" immigrants do today.

    Also, do I need to mention that an entire group from the "Third World" did not willingly immigrate to the United States?

  • What To Expect From Gilead's Dividend In 2016?  [View article]
    The consensus is that GILD is very cheap. If management agrees that GILD is significantly undervalued, then it should buy back a lot of shares.

    I would be happy with a dividend raise to $0.48 a quarter.

  • Novo Nordisk: This Winner Has Risks, Be Aware  [View article]
    Half of Novo Nordisk's moat is dug in its laboratories as their industry (in diabetes) leading scientists and researchers develop new medicines or new uses for old ones. The other half is dug by people around the world merely living their lives and becoming obese and diabetic in the process.

    I'd call that a great moat.

  • Church of England, New York state fund to press Exxon on climate change  [View news story]
    I thought Seeking Alpha was an investing community. Apparently, these investors are also the world's foremost experts in meteorology, climatology, oceanography, and other earth and atmospheric sciences.

    Seriously, I have seldom seen people so proudly broadcast their ignorance. Thanks for the entertainment.

    Central banks see deflation--that's why they feel they can hold rates so low for so long.

    Unfortunately for China, it costs so much to raise a child that many people cannot afford more than one child.

    One wonders why some people on the right worship Putin and think China is the bastion of capitalism.
