  • Oil Rebound Will Fuel A 'Rip Your Face Off' Rally In The Stock Market  [View article]
    I would add, corporations have done bought back all the shares they can digest to prop up per share profits in the absence of revenue increases. Banks off 5% today alone and 33% since summer.

    What about the fact that the jobs numbers are bogus, the middle class is running out of discretionary funds for purchases and sovereign debt is at record levels, there is a global glut of labor supply and interest rates are now negative in Japan and Europe indicating deflation is gearing up.

  • The Stock Market's Behavioral Correction Has Begun  [View article]
    On top of this insightful article is the realization that there is no credible logic being promoted for a continued ascent of stocks. It's as if all are shuffling around on the deck waiting for the wave to hit.

  • The Janssen-Achillion Deal Proves My Short Thesis  [View article]
    Gotta tell you, Dr. Dre, HardEquity, Long Term Bio and DoconStocks all have very, very good points. From a purely financial technical perspective and high level analysis, your position seemed solid. I think all 3 of them, however, have equally convincing positions. Am tempted to get more of it.

  • Mitek Systems Inc. beats by $0.06, beats on revenue  [View news story]
    That conference call almost came across as a PR event...sales and earnings not covered until well into the call. I too am long but how can it bounce 7% and now drop 11% to be down 4% on beating estimates. Something is not right. It is either cash burn rate, rumors on lawsuit, competition, pricing, user adoption or something. Stock should at least be holding its ground today and not dropping.

    How can you simply dismiss the people, the 14% unemployed/underemployed, as "marginal"? Transfer payments of UE checks do not constitute real, discretionary disposable income.

  • U.S. stock futures are enjoying a nice Independence Day rally along with equity markets across the globe, boosted by Portugal's government doing its best to stay alive and the ousting of Mohamed Morsi in Egypt. S&P (SPY) +0.6%, Nasdaq (QQQ) +1.1%, Dow (DIA) +0.85%[View news story]
    And the fact that obama put a pause button on his dousing of the economy vis-a-vis the unconstitutional act of delaying the key part of barryobomacare.

  • Mitek Systems (MITK -13.1%) dives after announcing it's suing the USAA, an ex-customer, for defamation and unfair business practices. Mitek points to an April PR from the USAA accusing Mitek of misappropriating confidential information and claiming it as its own. Mitek shares were crushed in April after the USAA filed a breach of contract and fraud suit against Mitek, and plunged again in May on an earnings miss. William Blair thinks Mitek will have to settle.   [View news story]
    So, is Mitek actually getting traction with the banks and its application? That is the real question.

  • Key Takeaways from Cisco's Q2 Earnings Call  [View article]
    Wow. Opened my eyes. I am guessing CSCO is not the only one doing this. So, executive management saw that there was no way to deliver share price growth Y/Y or Q/Q and sold out all of us. They are probably putting the stash in foreign stocks right now.

    Wiener and Waxman can hold all of the meetings they want. Their party is toast. Nobody is listening to them anymore.
