  • The Bears Are Deep In Their Caves [View article]
    Exaggerated sentiment, one way or the other, is always a contrarian indicator.

    Recent WSJ article about mom & pop investors now finally pilling into equities would seem to back this up. It's historically been a sure sign of a not-too-distant top.

    Rattling around in my otherwise empty head is Buffett's admonition about fearful and greedy.

  • I Will Be All Over Dunkin' Donuts Like Sprinkles On A Chocolate Donut Very Soon [View article]
    I've seen some instances, where they are in tandem or housed with other fast foods like Dairy Queen. Can only think of one DNKN that has ever folded in this area, and it was a very old store in a poor marketing location.

  • Cisco's Dramatic Q2 Shortfall Triggering Deserved Sell-Off [View article]
    Buy now, more on any subsequent dips. Cisco isn't going anywhere, and will work out the problems.

    Be interested in reading the next LINE article channeling Charles Ponzi.

    All things considered, wish I'd held on. Congrats to those who had the stones to do so.

    Wonder why he's selling off some COP? Or is it just Warren being Warren?

    Abba,

    Super company and apparently a great business model for them.

    Coffee is better and more reasonable than Sixbucks, with a far less pretentious clientele.

    Wish they paid a bit higher dividend, though.

    Oh, I'm a glazed man. Sometimes REALLY glazed.

    Abba,

    Agree. Great company with super business model. Coffee is far superior to Sixbucks, and a lot less pretentious clientle.

    I'm traditional....a glazed man. Sometimes REALLY glazed.
    Thanks.

    No, he did say it. He was giving a teammate directions to his house in New Jersey and he actually said that.

    Joe Garagiola, who grew up with him in St. Louis (and was a ballplayer himself) has a zillion anecdotes about Yogi.

  • Can Tesla's Musk Keep 'Putting Out Fires'? [View article]
    I'm a skeptic, Musk's hubris notwithstanding.

    Been around long enough to have seen these flash in the pan companies flame out in fairly short order. The media and politicians who have been fawning all over them have a way of eating their young eventually.

    Only time will tell their future, which is not a reason for me to invest. My betting is that they won't exist in five years.
