  • The Dollar, The Fed And The Market [View article]
    Let's see how the poor and middle-class benefit from strong dollar: gasoline price near 15% down; basic food purchases about 15% down; tourists not coming to US, lower hotel rates for vacation; lower cost in foreign cars, which means lower cost in domestics, as a result. Interest rates in those variable rate credit cards not rising for a while. Should I go on?

    Poor and middle-class don't care about stocks, gold and investments alike. They live paycheck to paycheck, and a strong dollar will give them a little break.

    If unemployment rate moves up to 8% or higher, the poor people will be negatively affected.

  • 10 Reasons Why SolarCity, Vivint Solar, And RGS Energy Are Destined To Fail [View article]
    Where I live the kWh cost is around $0.28 with flat rate (no peak or off-peak). The utility is highly leveraged and its debt is considered junk. They make incredibly difficult to sign a net metering contract. Above all, in case of a strong hurricane, we could spend several weeks in darkness because the transmission infrastructure is fragile.

    In that environment, I are very interested in buying a solar system with battery pack. I will check BYD. Thanks.

  • Vivint Solar sets expected IPO price range [View news story]
    They are sister companies. The coming IPO will be for the solar entity alone.

    The above comment "Vivint was purchased by Blackstone is 2012 for $2B." refers to both companies (security + solar) together.

    Does anyone knows the date (month at least) of the IPO?

  • General Electric: Yield And Growth At A Good Price [View article]
    Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ) was going nowhere (between $60 and $70) from November 2004 until December 2012. People here in SA hated the stock. It now trade at $101, after a peak at $106.

    Sometimes companies have problems: JNJ had many recalls, GE had Jack Welsh. If you can see the quality behind the dark clouds, you can make a good profit.

  • Africa: New Land Of Opportunity? Ashley Kelty Points To The Positives [View article]
    Do we really need to explode and pollute and ultimately destroy the habitat of many endangered species to produce more oil?

    Yes, of course. We are destroying the whole planet. It doesn't make any sense to save Africa, after all.

  • I'm Happy To See This Healthcare REIT Spreading The Love [View article]
    Hi Brad:

    Does your newsletter include a ranking system? Not intended to make comparisons, but I really appreciate the BDC rankings in the newsletter of other SA author.

    Something like "Five top healthcare REIT", "Five top office REIT", and several other "fives", would be greatly appreciated.

  • Will General Electric Finally Deliver Or Keep Frustrating Investors? [View article]

    Your statement (in capital letters) is clear, rational, and very agreeable. Unfortunately, someone hacked your comment and add irrational gibberish. Check your anti-malware program.

  • I Found The Cheapest Stock In The Stock Market [View article]
    Germany, China, India, UK, are way ahead of the US in solar energy. Of course, those people have more advance thinking systems. They don't vote republican.

  • No Fundamental Improvements At Clean Energy Fuels [View article]
    What could be better investment, AltaVista (first search engine) or Google? What could be better investment, MySpace (first social network) or Facebook? See my point?

    I will wait for the next company in the business of NG for transportation.
