  • Will Warren Buffett Save The Sinking BYD Co.? [View article]
    Gee, thanks for the lesson. All this time I thought Hong Kong had been a colony of the United Kingdom, which they returned to the People's Republic of China in 1997. Now I know that it was a country in Asia. Once again, I could be wrong, but I doubt if there are many large investors on any exchange looking to take Buffet's very large position in BYD off his hands. Of course if the price was low enough a buyer could quite possibly appear. But who knows maybe Buffet still sees value here. He has been right a few times.

  • WSJ’s Holman Jenkins and liberal economist Robert Reich agree on something: Why are the rating agencies in charge of anything? The agencies "have decided to join the politicians in turning an artificial crisis into a real one," Jenkins writes. Reich takes it even further, saying the agencies helped create the debt mess.  [View news story]
    Sounds familiar. If you do not like the measurement don't measure or more simply lets through out the grading system. The problem would appear that then there is no incentive for achievement.

  • Will Warren Buffett Save The Sinking BYD Co.? [View article]
    robbieboggie: Actually my experience with BYD hasn't been all that bad. I bought in after the news of Buffets purchase of 10 percent of the company and sold out in early 2010. Last sale in Feb 2010. However I did try to trade it a bit in 2011 without particularly good results. At this point not convinced that plug electric vehicles are ever going to be affordable enough to be used as transportation by the majority of drivers. However, I think other technology, particularly in 2nd generation biofuels could ultimately be very successful. There seem to be a lot of startups with a lot of bright minds working with exciting ideas in the area of biofuels.
    While I own a home in Florida, I bought it a number of years before the huge run up.
    As far as finding bottoms, I find that pretty tough. Sometimes I have thought I was averaging in a bottom only to convinced I was trying to catch a falling knife. And of course the Chinese market in small caps in general has been very tough in the past couple of years.
    I have to admit that I like Seeking Alpha a lot. Lots of great articles and comments as well.
    Currently my investment tends to be fairly conservative. Dividend stocks, covered calls and sometimes strangles. But I haven't given up on the idea of a great growth company but I would feel more comfortable to be investing in growth along with a growing economy.

  • Intel Is A Solid Pick Worth Over $35 [View article]
    Many invest in utilities and they don't grow very fast but they do often pay nice dividends. Also Intel's share price doesn't make it prohibitive to write covered calls or even sell puts for that matter. Not very feasible to buy 10 shares of Apple and then write a covered call for 1 contract and 100 shares. It seems to me that often lower priced shares are more easily invested in and traded by smaller investors.

  • Will Warren Buffett Save The Sinking BYD Co.? [View article]
    Seems to me the question is who would Buffet sell the shares too. Need a greater fool and not too many of those around. The trading volume on BYDDY and BYDDF is quite modest. Trying to unload all those share would probably force the price way down. Every once in a while many of us are subject to a great story that turns out to be anything but. As I remember Buffet's partner Charlie got Warren all giddy about BYD. And now it seems like they're just stuck with it. I dumped my shares a long time ago. Pains me even to think about it.

  • "We anticipate the worst 2H for PC sales since inception," says Citi's Gen Yeung, responding to Intel's (INTC -3.5%) Q3 warning. Yeung and many others have been raising alarm bells about PC demand in advance of Windows 8's (MSFT -1.8%) Oct. 26 consumer launch. FBR notes PC and storage inventories are at elevated levels, and Longbow believes Intel is seeing an inventory correction related to soft ultrabook uptake. The Intel Developer Forum kicks off on Tuesday. [View news story]
    As I understand it, Apple still has little presence in the Enterprise. Win 8 tablets could be a big hit here.

  • A Whimper: What Is All The Calm About? [View article]
    Is it possible that US money via the IMF is now entering to pick up where German money left off? If so, is it possible that this is another attempt to kick the can down the road, at least until December?

    I have to agree with the King of Siam. Chart the stock AU with the ETF GLD over the last 5 years and I think you will agree also.

  • Will food companies sweat organic push from Bentonville? [View news story]
    In response to a number of comments. I doubt that this foray into organic foods is directly targeted at Whole Foods. In my town if Walmart could seriously effect to level of sales at the 3 Whole Food stores it wouldn't amount to a whole lot. More likely they would like to attract shoppers from Publix and similar stores. The closest Publix to me has a new Family Walmart in the same shopping center. If they can get anywhere close to the higher prices of traditional store conventional food with an organic they just might snag a bit more traffic. I used to shop fairly often an Whole Foods. What I experienced was a cramped small store. Oh, and the bathroom was in the back in a little box among the shelves of food stored for later placement on the shelves. Always reminded me of going to a privy. Also, on one occasion I went to the Whole Foods store in the early evening and the employees wouldn't allow any customers in because it was employees day. On another occasion they wouldn't let customers in because they decided to clean the store. It has always appeared to me that in grocery stores what a store needed to do to attract some customers was to raise prices. Then they get that select group.
