  • Jim Cramer Sells Linn Energy, So You Can Be Sure I Am Going To Buy [View article]
    you make fair comment.

    Everyone here thinks it is just so chic to pound on Cramer. NOT !!!

    You must do your own due diligence...he admits to be an entertainer...and his market knowledge and memory are pretty darn good in my book.

    I bet most of the detractors have worse records than his...they just have hard-ons for Cramer. :):):)

  • It's another special dividend announced for December, this one from Franklin Resources (BEN +1.2%) for $3/share. Other asset managers/securities industry names maybe looking to help their owners beat the tax man: WDR, CBOE, CME, and GFIG[View news story]
    They can be "dumped back into equities" anytime. Recipients of the dividends have no time constraints in that regard.

  • Burying the Hatchet: CBOE, CME and the Road Ahead [View article]
    Excellent article, Mr. Longo, except that it is NOT up to date. The CBOE has postponed a vote on the exercise right settlement, due to in-fighting by former CBOT members as to who receives, and in what proportion, the settlement proposal. Until they resolve that, the CBOE does not wish to be party to any settlement that re-initiates any further legal action, in this case, between the (former) CBOT members.

  • 13 Predictions for 2008 [View article]
    Fun article. One correction: You did not beat Doug Kass to the punch...he wrote his "outlier" predictions YESTERDAY.

    I hope your comment on Bloomberg comes true...he would be the best president...although unlikely to become one.
