  • Boeing's South Carolina 787 plant catches up on 72% of work [View news story]
    You seem to have a problem not only with Boeing but the rest of America--a little game of "Ain't it terrible" (or is it tearable).

    Over the 30 years I worked at Boeing, I would say management has improved by leaps and bounds. When I first started each group was its own often in competition with other groups, there were no written down agreements on who would give what to whom and when. As an engineer, I could work on whatever I found interesting for months before being redirected to tailor my work to be more useful. It was a lot more interesting as an employee, but not good for getting work done.

    When Boeing went from being a "family" to being a "team", it was a bit of a sacrifice for the employees but I think it is better for Boeing overall.

    "Author’s reply » If you have actually read me consistently for the last 3 years, you will know that there was a point of a few months a few years back"

    Now we are looking at the mechanics of how selective memory is achieved.

    I did find this one http://bit.ly/1gaShUS from Dec 2011 where you predicted the price of gold was going to go up in a parabolic way, past $2000 and ridiculed the "experts" that predicted it might fall to $1200.

    Very selective memory.

    I actually took the time to look and your first article predicted deflation, which never happened. Selective memory is usually the main reason people think they can predict things.

    So you have a dynamic model of gold investor sentiment that predicted the years that it would go up and the years it would go down.

    The author spends 80% of his article explaining how gold prices don't follow any rational pattern and are completely driven by emotion then 20% telling us about the future price of gold. He can tell our future emotions. That is even more in-credible the the technical analysis guys.

  • A Sensible Approach To 'Smart Beta' [View article]
    I find it surprising that Earnings Weighted is such a small fraction of this space. Of all the attributes of a company, I would think earnings would be the most important. If a company is earning money it is either going to pay it as a dividend or grow.

  • Dollar Cost Averaging Versus Lump Sum Investing [View article]
    This is another duh thing that I see so often in dividend articles. If you do the lump sum at the beginning of the year it will do better, end of the year it will do worse, and you would get approximately the same performance if you did it in the middle of the year. As the author noted it all depends on which way the market is going and on average it goes up so there is opportunity cost associated with holding the money.

    Most real investors would be accumulating money to invest and DCA as they got the money. If they were going to lump sum purchase, they would hold onto the money and thus invest it at the end of the year.

    I think the far right had some people brand themselves as the Tea Party, sent out a bunch of We The People and Don't Tread On Me bumper stickers to their mailing list, sent some out of context quotes from the founding fathers to their email list and now we have a bunch of idiots that think they are Constitutional scholars.

    Nothing to say about the Constitution and complicated laws so you change the subject. Maybe you are the one that doesn't understand the Constitution.

    Where does the Constitution say anything about complicated laws. Your quote was from the Federalist Papers not the Constitution. Show me your knowledge.

    You still haven't made a case for why I don't understand the Constitution. Which we still haven't discussed.
