  • Have The Short Sellers Taken Down Linn Energy? [View article]
    LaChic's mention of Enron is potent, but in light of Enron, and the Great Recession of 2008 (shudder, tremble), the SEC, as well as those reactive buffoons at S&P and Moody's, are now somewhat trigger happy. And so what if the info the SEC has is third-party hearsay, at least they covered their collective asses.

  • Buffett's Dangerous Advice About Bonds [View article]
    Well-writ! I, for one, never hung on Buffet's every word. IMO, he is now living off the interest of his glory days, but not generating any new principle, so to speak.

  • Good Dividend Payer BreitBurn Energy Partners Brightens Its Future With New Oil Asset Purchases [View article]
    I think David has been over-reacted to. I appreciate the tax implication clarifications, but let the tax-wise peanut gallery '' " write their own articles instead passively sopping up the ops of "experts" they so readily discredit as if someone dashed their God book on the floor. Point out the problems--politely if you can muster it--and may you all live long and prosper, with or without BBEP.

  • ConocoPhillips: Deeply Undervalued At $52 [View article]
    The disclaimer is required by law, and you hear it in interviews on TV also. I suggest that you consider, notwithstanding your well-writ and careful post, extracting any info in these articles you think is or may be of value, follow up and cross-reference if possible with other sources, other hypes, other "news"--but leave be the motives of the writer, and any cynical subtexts in yours that divert your attention. In other words, Live Long and Prosper \ //

  • Buy This Oil Stock Now While The Price Is Low [View article]
    Thanks much for the article, I appreciate the facts laid out. Makes me wonder if Exxon knows something others don't, about the price/use of natgas. We all know Winter is going to make a comeback, but I mean Exxon knows about some demand, other than winter, in the wings not yet public.

  • Transocean's Value Proposition: Leading Driller Stays Afloat By Going Deepwater [View article]
    Excellent article, very good writing thanks much.

    I'm long ESV, and I usually hesitate to buy competitors as anti-redundancy measure. it doesn't seem like real diversification. Tho the special beaten-downness of RIG is maybe a rare chance.

  • The Stock Market Is Rigged! The Stock Market Is Not Rigged! [View article]
    Watching Mike Lewis on Charlie Rose rite this second--author, you are wrong, in the bigger picture at lease. You are ignoring the HUGE implications of HFT, on it's albut sanctioning by our legal system, and the SEC. Placing limit orders is some kind of "solution" to what is essentially a civil liberties problem? The bond market and the stock market needs to be reformed bigtime. In my opinion, prices and volume are information in the public domain, and access to these prices should not be rented for any fee by any entity, by any "exchange". Market prices should be 100% free. Once this happens--it never will, prob--HFT will be, in effect, tampering with something that belongs to you and me, as if a public park were taken over by a corporation for some infernal purpose. If this sounds socialistic to reactives sobeit.

  • The REIT Way To Become A Disciplined Dividend Investor [View article]
    Still hyping DLR?, all whilst hyping "protect your capital at all costs" ?
    Cognitive dissonance is not contagious, but denial is. I own DLR preferred and it has not yet found a bottom.

  • Will Apple Exist 3 Years From Now? How Much Will It Be Worth? [View article]
    The author wants to see the future, and me too: Apple will expand into, producing, and not merely purveying, content, and also, into medical technology--the single most important hi-tech field there is.

  • Don't Fall for the 'Defensive Portfolio' Hype [View article]
    No need to call him "maniacal". Criticize away, but it's "logical" not to doubt you could not do his impossible job.

    Meanwhile, I think the May sell off, like some hurricane all the "experts" around SA are preparing for with their puny sand-bag tradings, levered shorts, and other "hype" (advice), will likely become the self-fulfilling prophecy we have, and will, create. That QE happens not to return in this period, Spring 2011, will seal the deal. And next year the experts can roll out the told-you-so charts of the May sell off, 2011.

  • The Active Quest for Alpha: A Loser's Game [View article]
    Indexing is just another form of market timing. When do you buy an index, when do you sell? Do you wait for a brutal "correction" before you buy (or sell), or do you blunder into it any old time, and hope your buying an index that is crazy high will somehow not ride the tide of "regression to the mean" ? Active trading is trying to "beat the market", and "passive" investing is an attempt to avoid being beaten by the market. "Active", "passive" it's still all about timing the market.
