  • Biotechs don't have a friend in sight [View news story]
    $100 on IBB would freak me out a bit, Archman. I'm mainly a veg head but let's make it a virtual Italian meal somewhere .......

  • Biotechs don't have a friend in sight [View news story]
    Well, we have a gentleman's bet on that one - not happening, as that was before these companies were making money and had their research flying.

  • What Seeking Alpha Is Doing To Prevent Paid Stock Promotion [View article]
    It is good to hear that SA is doing these things though I am involved mostly with indexes; I have always taken the "cheerleader"/naysayer analysis with several grains of salt, owing to having to account for the lowest common denominator within my species.

    A side comment to potential writers for SA; I no longer look at -- no page hits from me -- pieces with sensationalized/negative titles that seem to attract the largest interest from the readers here. Totally avoid them now.

  • Visa: High Price Should Not Prevent Exceptional Returns [View article]
    I personally look forward to the day when competitive forces cause these bloodsucking middlemen to extract much less money out of the economy and my pocket. But, good luck with the stock until that happens.

  • Will The Weather Pull Natural Gas Prices Back Up? [View article]
    Thanks! Any thoughts on the Russian "issue" and how the NG situation over there could impact prices here, if at all?

  • Beware Buyers: 12 Reasons Why The Current Sky High Natural Gas Price Isn't Here To Stay [View article]
    Excellent synopsis via a lot of factors. Of course, shorting nat gas right now is well .... I guess it would be a good way to "feel alive." I will be working on my MA charts this weekend, using a 15 minute timeframe.

    Even as an admittedly active investor/trader, I can tell you that this was a nice piece Larry.

  • GOP Hearings On Climate Change May Threaten Entire Green Economy [View article]
    With billions of creatures living in a closed system -- atmosphere -- thinking that they have some influence on weather patterns is a no-brainer to me. Figuring out how that factors into the other variables that can affect climate is not so easy. After all, we are overdue on an ice age and when you think about it, we are in a fragile orbit around the Sun and there is the whole Earth axis thing. Actually, I don't even like to think about it. As far as I can tell, there is just as much likelihood that in the longer run, we will run into more problems with colder weather than with warmer. But .....

    It is also a no-brainer to me that we should be conserving as much fossil-fuel energy as possible, for every obvious reason that all "sides" should be able to see, and that there is a heck-of-a-lot of solar, bio and alt energy sources available and to be developed. Those sources and not fossil fuels, are the longer term answer, with the acknowledgement that we need the fossil bridge to get there.

    So, I don't argue global warming anymore, I argue energy conservation and alt energy development, things that every one should be able to agree on.

  • Will The Natural Gas Market Change Course? [View article]
    Crazy action in the price today - waiting for a dip and then another rise to buy again. I am a novice at Nat Gas but it makes no sense at all to me that the market price is dictated by the pricing in the NG futures. Or is it?

  • Will The Natural Gas Market Change Course? [View article]
    Besides the weather -- :) -- what do most of you guys "use" to trade Nat Gas? The way it has been moving, you could just use a simple tick chart and try and surf the short term waves at turns at very short term support/resistance. My method has always been to scale in slowly to UNG -- I know that it is not an efficient ETF and NG scares me -- after weakness and then scale out after the inevitable rises. I feel pretty good about this approach since I know that as of now, this is a commodity that will have value during my lifetime as opposed to say, pieces of paper that represent companies (stocks) even though some do pay dividends. With this volatility, it is tempting to just try and surf the short term waves ....

  • 4 Reasons Tonix Could Be A Multi-Bagger [View article]
    TNXP just announced a new offering - 2,898,550 shares of its common stock at $15.00 per share.

    No position. For me, too much of a love fest for this stock over here at SA though I have missed most -- but not all -- of the run up. Don't be too late to the party.

  • The Achilles' Heel Of Apple Is Its Recalcitrant High-Margin Policy [View article]
    Yes - one other advantage to small caps -- which again for me, I use extremely small position sizing to manage risk -- is that, assuming they are in the process of a move up based on fundamental reasons, they are less susceptible to large overall moves down (remember those?) by the major indexes. The danger of course is that the small cap moves down are magnified after bad fundamental news and/or the mo-mo people exiting their positions.

    I'm looking forward to seeing what AAPL does with its huge cash hoard. IMO, they have been far too reliant on continuing to "just" sell devices, while the competition catches up to them on that front and the market gets gradually saturated.

  • The Achilles' Heel Of Apple Is Its Recalcitrant High-Margin Policy [View article]
    I stopped caring about AAPL the stock, somewhere back below $700. There are so many more and better opportunities in small cap stocks - research and find them; manage risk via extremely small positions. A lot more interesting than obsessing on AAPL too.

    As far as Apple, were I them, I'd do something significant on the content side of things - now.
