  • 5 Reasons Why I Am Shorting The Market [View article]
    I linked Stockman's email of today "this time is different" about Fed, CB, being out of ammo but it got deleted.
    Buy naked puts when premiums are low, sell the high premiums. When VIX was 12-14 area was a good time to buy index puts long, naked.

    It's different this time, Fed and all CB are out of bullets. I posted David Stockman's daily email link at SA today and they quickly deleted it. Hmmm
    Search for it...titled It's different this time meaning CB are toast, and great article with all Fed history from alan the market puppet on

    Ya wanna buy naked puts when VIX is low and premiums are low, now is a better time to sell premiums when they're high. David speaks for me in today's letter. Stocks are not cheap! Earnings before bad stuff and recurring nonrecurring items, oh this house of cards is bigger and shakier than ever. I'll buy and hold when SPX breaks below 700 maybe.

    Michael, what a revelation! Like I told you long ago, your ibm hold may lose money even after dividends. Selling covered calls won't help you much in a bear market. The over-arching reach for yield is dangerous; look at the MLPs recently, even ones with little commodity-price exposure. Many believe risks have been mitigated by monetization of debt - conversely I believe risks have been elevated by it.
    Calls in a bear market don't offer much if any POIV.
    What about the many corp. which borrow money at super low rates to buyback their stocks at or near all time highs, and to pay dividends? High risks there. I won't read your reply, if any, I already know what you might say. I'll let David Stockman educate you; you can sub to his daily emails. Get the Facts, Facts are our Friends

    Smug Bulls will get slapped and spanked silly -- the author said it's a trade, not a long term investment.
    Bear always follows Bull and vice-versa, WHEN is the huge question.
    Even buy and holders have seen major drawdowns since 3-09 and especially since 1999.

  • With MLPs, some are far more exposed to plunging crude prices than others [View news story]
    The 3 listed here with least exposure to oil price all tanked hard; stocks move in packs, it's painful to be "right" and still lose money. Got to understand how stocks react, not just the funniementals. The overarching search for yield at any risk is ominous to say the least. No free lunch in the stock market.

  • New highs for Chipotle as Street predicts momentum will continue [View news story]
    Chipotle is not Mexican food, and not very tasty. It is the McDonalds of Mex in the U.S. where it was co-founded and owned by McD which sold its 25% stake many yrs. ago.
    There are far better meals at the same or lower prices at locally-owned rest. owned & operated by Mexicans.
    I feel sorry for anyone who eats at Chipotle, they are cheating themselves and treating their taste buds and wallets poorly..

  • Platinum, palladium soar along with auto sales, new South Africa strike [View news story]
    ATL is a small unknown company. I think it needs to be "discovered"! pun meant, yes of course. I think it can generate positive cash flow late this year, that should help a great deal.
