  • Amazon: Has The New York Times Correctly Rung The Proverbial Bell At The Top? [View article]
    So, e.g. lets compare what was it like to work for SJ regime at Apple. Might make AMZN job look rather tame.

  • Where Is The Wage Growth? [View article]
    Thanks. Related to your last paragraph: I would guess that the quits are getting new jobs at higher overall pay than the one they left. And, even though that higher pay may not be at an increased rate for the hiring company, it's more income for the hired employee.

    Presumably, that same employee's replacement at the former company is also doing better by taking the vacated job than they were doing before. So, again this would be an increased income to the individual, even if not at a higher rate for the old company.

  • Will Greece be in or out? [View news story]
    It sounds like elegant begging and ignorance of "heal thyself" reality. I have been in Greece, appreciate many aspects of the country, the people and the history. I feel the government is not leading, not truthful with their own citizens.

  • Greek talks stumble [View news story]
    When it comes to grand bargaining, the Europeans are the masters and we in the USA are grasshopper. Everything is negotiable, everything is on the table, and everything is posturing. Just watch a European soccer match. The guy in agony is playing again once his antics do or don't get him a free kick. Only after the last thousandth of a second of possible arguing will they all play on.

  • Is Biotech Finally In A Bubble? [View article]
    If you are correct that the overall equity market is in bubble territory, and it subsequently corrects, I would think the red-hot-but just-boom-priced biotech's would "correct" even more.

  • Corporate Buybacks; Connecting Dots To The F-Word [View article]
    I'll wager Buffett would, however, purchase dollar bills (including his own stock) for comfortably under 100 cents. The question becomes one of intrinsic value - is it clearly a good buy or not. Paying more is always goofy, regardless of financing. I agree that, even if its a good investment to repo shares, management is in effect saying they don't have a better clue of what to do with those treasury funds.

  • Why Cash Is King [View article]
    With all of the cash that so many readers have on hand, IMHO, the market isn't going to "correct" all that much before the cavalry arrives.

    Its interesting to hear the $4T bond-buyer opine on the possible over-valuation of another financial market.

  • New Home Sales Are Not Terrible Despite The Recent Decline [View article]
    Just sold my home Whew. Biggest concern was surviving the overly stringent appraisal guidelines required by mortgagors, at the behest of the federal housing agency hurdles. The guidelines require looking backward at previous sales, many of which were distressed. This tends to keep the whole market more distressed than need be and for much longer than necessary IMHO.

  • Guarding Against A Possible Biotech Correction [View article]
    "In light of this, some are recommending investors to stick with less speculative stocks."
    "In light of this, an accurately timed speculation in biotech could prove lucrative."

    Sorry, which headline is it?

  • American Realty Capital Properties: Reorganization Nearing Completion With Dividend To Follow [View article]
    One nice thing about a 99%-plus occupancy rate is that you are in a better position to negotiate rent increases, which all go to the bottom line. N'est pas?
