  • Vipshop's (VIPS) IPO is looking like a dud. Shares are trading at $5.75, down 11.5% from an offering price of $6.50. The fact the flash sales site posted a net loss of $107.3M last year on revenue of $227.1M could have something to do with the drop. (F-1)  [View news story]

  • President Obama's anti-drilling argument uses false statistics, argues CNBC's Larry Kudlow. The president argues that America uses over 20% of the world’s oil, but has only 2% of the world’s known oil reserves. Patently untrue, says Kudlow. The U.S. has 1.4T barrels of recoverable oil, which is enough to meet all U.S. oil needs for about the next 200 years, without any imports.  [View news story]

    It recovered from its recent drop, not sure why it did in the first place. And yes I do realize it is cheaper than the others still.

  • With 243,000 jobs created in January, the economy is starting to look more positive, which might be a big plus for Pres. Obama in the November election. Current forecasts for labor growth point toward an extremely close election, Nate Silver writes - one in which every monthly fluctuation above or below a threshold of 150K jobs created could matter.  [View news story]
    You're kidding right

  • Energy emerges as one key from the State of the Union address, with President Obama launching clean energy projects on public lands, calling for efficiency initiatives, and directing the Defense Department to buy plenty of clean energy. On the 99%-vs.-1% front, he put a number to a tax-reform "Buffett rule": If you make more than $1M a year, you should not pay less than 30% in taxes. S&P 500 e-mini futures slightly lower, +0.25%. (policy proposals summarized)  [View news story]
    Never good anytime Obama talks about clean energy.... http://bit.ly/zpg948

  • Bank of America (BAC) is close to its limit on how much stock it's authorized to issue without being forced to go to shareholders to ask for permission, according to a Reuters report. Although it may not be that difficult to do, it does reflect just how much the bank has forced to sell to keep itself afloat. Since 2007, the bank's share float has soared from 4.5B shares to 10.1B, an increase -read dilution of shareholder equity - of nearly 125%.  [View news story]

  • I'd be buying bank stocks "hand over fist," says banking analyst Dick Bove. "On a fundamental basis, it's almost impossible to believe that these stocks are not dramatically underpriced." As he sees it, investors should be taking advantage of the turmoil in Europe to buy, not sell every time the market "freaks out" over fears of the sovereign debt crisis spreading. His picks: Bank of America (BAC), Morgan Stanley (MS), State Street (STT) and US Bancorp (USB).  [View news story]
    Huh? I'm saying there are more sound banks as to keep money in or invest in. Obviously, I am referring to certain regional banks. You also recommended smaller banks in a couple posts below.

    We don't need them, there are more sound banks that I would rather keep money in or invest in. And they don't need us, they have all the money they want from the FED at 0% plus bailouts when they make "mistakes"

    Good luck getting banks to disclose all of their exposure and to actually do accounting practices that make sense

  • Todd Sullivan's look at investing in the big banks reveals the potential for "very healthy" double-digit returns, especially for Bank of America (BAC), whose litigation risk is "massively overstated... as if they will lose every case against them and be forced to pay the whole amount they are being sued for." While perceptions are dictating valuation for now, "over time fundamentals will win out."  [View news story]
