  • Lonestar: High-Conviction Long Idea Remains Irrationally Undervalued Compared To Its Peers [View article]
    Goo, must hold the 92.oo price level..

    We exited Lonestar at 41 cents..The price action since it's 52 week high
    has been very, very poor.

    Looking to reentry at around 30 cents.

  • Endeavour Mining: Could This Pink Sheet's Investors 'Strike Gold'? [View article]
    Mr Shekhdar, that diversification is good, nevertheless, there are risks to
    any mineral rights company in Africa.

    With literally hundreds of PMs mining firms, why take on the risks of
    cancellations of sovereignty contracts or nationalization.

    Africa, in particular, is a known abuser of contract rights..

    Regrettably, we have exited this position too.
    The past 20 trading days have been horrid, especially
    after Lonestar peak at 60 cents.

    I strongly believe, that the stock will pullback to the
    32 to 35 cent area.

    We will buyback again, at a much lower cost. GL, to all!

    Vijoda, yes, you are correct..We will only hold in a bull market
    for stocks and oil...

    Goo, broke the 92 level, which has been a floor for sometime..We could
    be witnessing crude decline to the $80 level, which will take the entire
    sector down with it.

    Furthermore, our entry point of .35 1/2 was on the high side of the trading range..Had we had an entry point a dime cheaper, we would still be holding this position.

    I would like to add, that short of events beyond their control, Petro must grow it's production rate by at least 25% or more.

  • Piketty's Envy Problem [View article]
    "Becker’s unusually wide applications of economics started early. In 1955 he wrote his doctoral dissertation at the University of Chicago on the economics of discrimination. Among other things, Becker successfully challenged the Marxist view that discrimination helps the person who discriminates. Becker pointed out that if an employer refuses to hire a productive worker simply because of skin color, that employer loses out on a valuable opportunity. In short, discrimination is costly to the person who discriminates.

    Becker showed that discrimination will be less pervasive in more competitive industries because companies that discriminate will lose market share to companies that do not. He also presented evidence that discrimination is more pervasive in more-regulated, and therefore less-competitive, industries. The idea that discrimination is costly to the discriminator is common sense among economists today, and that is due to Becker."

    He certainly does argues my points of view and more than likely not have supported the creation of the EEOC.

    The left is attempting to make man whole; we should attempt to make him holy; resulting in better results. <------ more cost effective.

    Mr Smith says: Over 50 years in business, I saw hiring decisions go against people because they were black, Asian, Latino, women, and once for a Native American. And, at the time, that was perfectly legal. Never saw any decision go against someone because they were too short, fat, or ugly.

    That fact that the writer has never seen "decisions go against" Euro-Americans should raise eyebrows...To suggest that employees are not cashiered because of their physical appearance is naive.

    "Whether or not antidiscrimination laws and regulations are actually enforced, they do change business culture and practices. I saw that change. It was good for business, for the economy, and for the nation."

    [From Brookings Institute - Why business are leaving the USA]

    http://www.brookings.edu~/media/research/f...

    Mr Smith, would you work or shop where you are not welcomed? Not me!
    I do not wish to profit some employer nor shop owner, whom has a dislike for me personally.

    You cast a very wide net, so your social thesis can become law and practice..You wish to impose your valves upon all...You paint discrimination as entirely evil..Your mandated values are forcing many business to relocate because they are now not free and are being
    discriminated against.

    For every action, there is a reaction.

    " It's about policies with the effect of motivating young people by giving them better prospects for good pay and good jobs."

    We do not need social nannies; governmental units have no business in employment or for providing better paying jobs.

    I will Finnish by quoting, the Rev Dennis Prager, Everything the left touches, it destroys..Professor Dr Piketty's is no different and
    unfortunately, Mr Smith, neither are you.

    The more you regulate business, the more they leave..

    You sought to fill a void, only to create another.

    Mr Smith says: When government anti-discrimination measures allow all individuals to fully utilize their talents, that is good for the nation.

    The market place, would in time, have solved many of these problems.

    Moreover, Mr Smith, have you noticed how these statues growth in
    authority and scope...

    From simply legislation to ever growing complex agencies, writing ever
    growing regulations..

    The DOJ and EPA, are classic examples of legislative growth and power.

    "There will never be government programs to allow short fat people to overcome the discrimination they face because it is too subtle."

    When the impossible is possible, simply interject governmental units.

    When you have finished your "work" for the LGBT lobby and income
    inequality you shall move-on.org to the latest "fight" for minorities -
    height inequality.

    Regarding your employment opinion, there are recorded stats indicating
    minorities having a less than stellar work record.

    Firms, whom do not advance their best employees will certainly under perform the market place - irrespective of race.

  • Stop Using Stops! [View article]
    One of the main issues we have had with stops, is on the opening bell.

    Several days ago, (GILD) was down 10% right at the opening but manage
    to finish the trading session with a loss of only 3%.

    This has happen to us several times..The author, NLO, did an excellent
    piece on this subject.

    From what we have seen, stops work and then do not work..Certainly,
    as a trader, they should be employed, to avoid a draw down.
