  • Is Recent Jobs Growth Already Priced Into The Market? [View article]
    "I guess it was stupid people who created multiple levels of derivatives"

    No, they just bought the stuff.

  • Stock ETFs - Still Cheaper After Rally? [View article]
    I am a buy and hold type myself. I don't have anywhere near the time or ability to pick small cap winners. Sure you get under-performers when you buy an index but you also dramatically reduce your risk of having primarily under-performers.

    The Seeking Alpha founder is a bit of a fan of ETFs: http://seekingalpha.co...

    TDAmeritrade lets you trade 100 of the most common ETFs for free. Other brokerages also have the same sort of thing.

    "The high rollers and the more financial adept again will look for higher returns. As before, this has the potential of causing another bubble to develop"

    Assuming that the financial(ly) adept are stupid and invest in an asset that is already over-priced. Isn't that left for the financial(ly) inept?

    Stupid people make bubbles not easy money. Easy money without stupid people can only make inflation.

    Exactly. They just sit there--like gold. What is your point? Why do three people think you said something?

    And someone thinks "Buffet's argument is emotional and sensationalist"

    Hey Slimeball,

    Get a life man.

    Back at ya on that rude thing.

    There's no call for that kind of personal attack here.

    The worst lobotomy has given you the accurate picture.

    No doubt free $peech is the culprit.

    A little mirror for you viewing pleasure.

    My experience is that ETFs make plenty of money for me and zero for my broker (since most of the broad index ETFs trade for free). Try a little IWM for a while.

  • Greece's CDS: More Lucky Than Smart [View article]
    "Because you ultimately can’t trust them when you really need them"

    Wasn't that always going to be the problem anyhow. After the disaster not only might the issuer not want to pay but might not be able to pay.

  • At least 26 companies have pulled their ads from Rush Limbaugh's radio show since he called a law student a “slut” on the air last week, including publicly-traded companies ALL, AOL, CARB, CTXS, JCP, PLCM, SHLD and VITC.  [View news story]
    You would think Rush would understand the concept of a sponsor--someone who wants to promote an image on his show. The guy was already told by the NFL that his money wasn't wanted because he has to rant on about some 18th century ideas of blacks. The right wing has created their own little alternate world that has gotten further and further from reality. Rush was one of the main movers and he is now so caught up in it he doesn't remember what real reality is like. As Rush gets a little older and slips further into his alternate reality, I expect to see more and more of this. I hope this one blows over pretty fast to keep Rushes powder dry.

    There are a bunch of you alcoholics and folks that can't stop stuffing your mouths. Once your liver is shot or you have diabetes the rest of us get to foot the bill. You are a lot more expensive than birth control and since you folks don't get expensive until you are fat or brain dead there is little return for treating you. Show a little personal responsibility. I would rather give my money to the babe so she can get some without cranking out a kid.

  • Investing In Treasury Bonds: A Guaranteed Losing Strategy? [View article]
    I don't know much about macro-economics and can't say what will happen in Europe but I would still bet that TBT is the easiest money out there.

  • Why You Shouldn't Be Buying Stocks [View article]
    I don't believe in efficient markets, nor can I tell when the market is under or over priced. I can't even figure out who to believe when folks say the market is going up or down. I don't know why you didn't write the same story about gold being over priced. I am not as smart as you-all but, I do know that the market goes up more than it goes down. So, I will just keep playing the odds.

  • Baby Boomers And The Declining Labor Force Participation Rate [View article]
    If you looked at the data instead of spouting off made-up facts, you would see that the kids are not working anymore. If you went to MCD lately, you would see that the old folks are doing the work that the kids used to do. Of course some folks are just getting too old to work. You also have to figure immigration in the equation. Then, when you have ~10million illegals running around it is hard to figure out what is really happening. Except maybe you.
