    I remember those days. Had a girl friend with a Vega. Talk about a rust bucket. There were some really crappy cars built in those days.

    Heck of a nice day with broad upside for me. Only 4 stocks out of 49 were down. Up 1.47% today. Few more days like today, and it will be back to normal.

    Cross, no worries. The latest review I read on the new F150 is pretty good. Being a long term truck guy, I think the new F150 is going to be a hit when it gets to the dealer lots shortly. While I'm not one of the hard core FORD guys, I would seriously look at the F150 if I was shopping for a new truck. Much stronger frame, lighter by around 700 lbs which increases payload, more friendly interior, new powerplant in the lineup. Aluminum has been used in cars and trucks for years and many people don't know that. Good looking truck that is going to be a hit IMO and Ford will be able to hold the discounts to a minimum which will help the bottom line.

    George, what do you think of MAT? I've been waiting to see a volume turnaround and some options written. Might be the time of the year.

    Nibbled on MRK. We'll see if it goes up or down. I like the dividend if I have to hold.

    Since my calls on IP expired on Friday and the stock moved up nicely, I sold the Nov 14 $48's for 1.05.

    Anyone that follows George knows on SA or The Street knows he about option trading. Do you sell calls or puts?

    'I was away on a trip'.

    That's pretty funny. Pretty good group that follow George. It's away's good to get others ideas and perceptions.

    Delta is a solid company for sure. I just need more money to invest. That's always the problem. I knew about the refinery purchase and thought is was a smart hedge move at the time. The question is with low fuel prices now, is it the same benefit? Any idea?

    So, where did you go on your trip?

    I suspect Monday will be a newsworthy day. The relatives of Duncan that died of Ebola will be ending the isolation period and in the news. They are not happy about the last three weeks and blame the hospital for Duncan's death.

    Bottom line IMO: If no new Ebola cases show up, less reason for the market to move around. Give us another two weeks to see what plays globally and internally.
    But, pick up stocks based on value when the opportunity arises.

    George, I like your stocks. Wouldn't mind owning some long term either.

    I've gone from 17.1K written in calls down to 5.2k with only $204 bucks in the money. Might was well get paid if you are going to own stocks. It certainly makes for a more reasoned view of the market regression.

    I think the opportunity is here to rebalance your holdings to buy into future gains.

    George, I get hit hard with Girl Scout cookies. I usually end up with 30-40 boxes on the kitchen counter. Then I end up with not one, but two Xmas wreaths from the Cub Scouts. Parents love to hit up Ray for an easy sale. I also get hit for donations to school stuff like football, soccer, etc.

    That's OK, I get free beers and couple of dinners show up weekly at the front door. That's what happens when most of neighbors have been around twenty years plus.

    Maybe I'll move the vette out to the driveway and throw the FOB on the roof.
    I was thinking about selling it anyways. :0

    I think the Fed governors are wild cards and nothing is pre-approved.

    IMO, the bond world had some minor earthquakes lately, with Ebola and needing to setup for a good 4th quarter, money was leaving so it could come back strong.

    The real issue is efficiency. Companies are pretty efficient now and higher paying jobs are fewer. Then you have ACA which has impacted people with new or higher medical insurance costs. I pay 500.68 a month and considering no insurance for 2015 as my rate looks to be going up 20% or so. Rather pay the penalty. ACA isn't the final answer. United Healthcare is jumping in the open market for medical insurance this year in certain areas where they can make 6-7% net profit. Looking to buy the stock and sell calls.

    Varan, of course Buffett is going to have better research done before investing. Doesn't mean one can't be very successful.

    Doug,

    I found this interesting article on 'Dark Pools'. Wells Fargo is shutting it's DP down, but will direct clients orders to other DP's.

    http://strib.mn/1rIEMRd

    That seems to confirm some of what I see in the trading prices and volume.

    Maybe Jeff can jump in on 'Dark Pools'.
