  • Initial Price Target Of $19.8 For Fannie Mae [View instapost]
    Well, it's easy for a writer to give his scenerios especially if he doesn't own 1 share. I don't know anything except what I read. That is this bill seems to have bi-partisan support in the Senate and could do well in the house. Politician on both sides of the isle want to make noise to show people there worth. Ha. I think this bill will hurt the building business, plus they will need lot more time than 5 yrs to replace there structure because these 2 lenders represent at least 65 or 70% of current mortgage business.
    Over kill bill to ring are wonderful representative bell for votes

  • Apple (AAPL -5.8%) has hit levels last seen in Dec. '11 following Cirrus Logic's warning and a Digitimes report about declining iPad Mini shipments. Cross Research calls Cirrus' warning "a reminder of weakening demand, and the challenges around product transitions" for Apple. Tero Kuittinen, noting sub-30M June quarter iPhone sales estimates and worries about the margin impact of emerging markets promotions, thinks "several nightmare scenarios have been priced in." "The naked fear of former Apple bulls is exactly what we need just before the earnings come out." [View news story]

Regardless, with September traditionally the most volatile trading month of the year, the next few weeks have the potential to be one wild ride.  [View news story]
    August was tough and I hope September gives my portfolio a rest.
