  • The ECB can stop the sovereign debt crisis "almost immediately" by carrying out a "massive" round of government bond purchases, says Guillermo Ortiz, formerly Governor of Mexico's central bank. So now we've got former Mexican central bankers advising the ECB to print massive amounts of money to fund governments. Wonderful.   [View news story]
    Ortiz is right, Greece or PIIGS is the new South America.... as in South America is the most prosperous continent on this planet now when they finally paid off the IMF, World Bank etc etc.... ask any country down there if they'll ever ever do business with the Banks I mentioned and more....... not a hope .... where do you folks think central banks get there money from...... not to mention but I will, central bankers like the IMF PAY NO TAXES, it's a joke...... and that's a fact Jack !!!

  • Not everyone is on board with the sunny outlook on stocks, as at least four strategists reiterate gloomy S&P 500 forecasts, betting the 2012 run will fade out sooner rather than later. Barclays' Barry Knapp, for example, says "concerns about U.S. public and Fed policy risks are effectively unchanged... A sustainable period of multiple expansion is unlikely until the Fed begins normalizing policy.”   [View news story]
    ya ya, just like some strategist or better yet some high faluting economist said we wouldn't see the Dow over 13,000 until 2013.....
    so ask yourself, is everyone always on board...... I think not, so how about reporting the positive for a change instead of trying to create fear mongering based on usual useless theory......

  • Om Malik sees a common thread between Greg Smith's attack on Goldman Sachs (GS) and James Whittaker's critique of Google's (GOOG) changes: each is going after his ex-employer for no longer putting its customers first. In Google's case, Malik sees a company straying from its core identity as an information provider in the name of a misguided attempt to become more "social."   [View news story]
    What attack on GS, that's been common knowledge for years and years.... Google, whatever they've been doing in the last year there site now sux big time, slow, unresponsive, viruses, nothing works, the same old story, always fix what isn't broken........

  • If Iceland really wants to adopt the loonie, Canada is ready to talk. Ambassador Alan Bones, in remarks planned for tomorrow in Reykjavik, will tell Icelanders the move entails the subjugation of its monetary policy to the BoC. For Canada, the play would give it more clout in the Arctic region - an important frontier in energy exploration.   [View news story]
    .... Maybe this time Canada will wake up.... while slipping around on ice bergs maybe they'll wake and do the same for Turks & Caicos who wanted the same....... I'll take palm tree's any day....

  • MGM Resorts International's (MGM) Q4 loss narrowed to $0.23/share from $0.29 in the year-ago period, as the casino operator booked fewer impairment charges and posted stronger-than-expected revenue. But the loss was still wider than analysts were expecting; shares -3.6% premarket.   [View news story]
    Ya Ya, stronger than expected revenue, MGM didn't miss anything, again they beat but of course there down on over zealous guesstimations by analysts..... and compared to CZR, MGM is a $20.00 buck stock, plain & simple......

  • Ivanhoe Energy: The Highest Risk/Highest Reward Stock In My Portfolio  [View article]
    Bret, just change ur wording on ur highly speculative stocks to "work out"... if you expect to lose, you will, I know what ur saying, but if ur mindset is already there to losing, it will...... on Ivan, I believe the high risk is gone, high reward, you bet, as I said tho, it's long term, right now Friedland is pissed about resigning from the board of IVN, the litigation outcome with Rio, but as usual he'll find a way, especially when you probably have the number 1 mine find in the world..... that stock should be at $50.00 right now....... I'm with ya tho, load er up on IVAN..... a little trivia for ya, way back when, Jobs as in Steve & Friedland were best buddies.....
