    The ACA will likely be, and somewhat already is, a disaster.

  • Obamacare Web site goes down twice amid last-minute rush [View news story]
    So, we are left to choose from YOU who says, without substantiating support, that the healthcare.gov website was out for 9 minutes, or this SA breaking news report which claims, without substantiating support, that the website was down for several hours. Of course, you also don't provide a link supporting your claim that more Americans support the ACA than oppose it. I have read online that FEWER Americans support the ACA now. What say you?

  • Manchester United Offers A Compelling Return [View article]
    I am an avid soccer fan and you are correct. MANU looks pretty bad this season and is sitting in seventh place in the EPL with very slim chances of winning the Premiership. They did advance today against Olypiakos in the Champion's League, but I doubt they will win or even place in the top three. This is significant because the Champion's League is the ultimate test for a club team, and this is Moyes' first season as head coach. I think the only things that could save MANU's fortunes are a return of Alex Ferguson and new, talented players. Because of these things, I cannot expect an improving global image for the team and thus, I cannot expect explosive earnings. The team's heyday is definitely behind them. I could only suggest selling short term deep in the money puts on the stock, if it is optionable, and only if one HAD to trade this stock.

  • Fresh Healthy Vending International Inc. Why This $64 Million Company Could Drop By 75% Or More [View article]
    You must call different brokers and see if they have the shares to short. Calls and puts are derivative securities and ARE NOT SHARES OF STOCK. The difference is that stock gives you legal ownership in a company while calls and puts are side bets on the stock price of a company. The majority of written call and put contracts evaporate in value all the time. Only buy calls and puts if you are 99% certain the price of the underlying financial security will move in the direction you think and by the amount you think it will. That being said, if you manage to find multi year put contracts selling on a pump and dump scheme like VEND, it is probably a very good bet to take, but only with some disposable income.

    The first thing you should do as an investor is NOT BUY ANYTHING. As soon as you have the urge to buy a financial security, DO NOT DO IT. Begin reading, calling people, sending emails, and asking questions. Once you have done this for about a week, THEN YOU SHOULD STILL NOT BUY ANYTHING. Repeat the same process of due diligence for another two weeks and THEN, MAYBE CONSIDER BUYING A FINANCIAL SECURITY.

    Hopefully you will sell at a profit. Money can be made on both sides of these pumps, but if you hold you will almost certainly always lose.

  • Vringo announces 2013 results; shares -4.9% AH [View news story]
    Jonathan, I disagree. VRNG is burning through cash at the rate they have previously stated. If you are short, you had better have a very tight stop order in. This stock is going to explode at some point in time in 2014.

  • Tesla: We've Got Some Numbers For February [View article]
    I'm curious. Just what cutting edge technology are you referring to? From what I have studied, nothing is cutting edge in Tesla cars. It is all existing technology brought together.

    Just to be picky, the company could alter the software to make it seem like your capacity is unchanged. The only way for you to tell would be to check your electricity costs for recharging with the same environmental variables, like temperature. Just because the battery is warrantied for 8 years does not mean it will last that long. I used to work for a company that warrantied their product for 5 years when the actual average lifespan was 2 years. I don't think Tesla would cheat the customer though.
