  • Why Rite Aid Investors Shouldn't Be Too Concerned With Debt [View article]
    RAD is both paying down debt AND rolling over its debt at ever lower interest rates. This improves the capital structure as well as accelerates future improvements in the earnings growth rate. McKesson has a long history of acquisitions and may easily digest a very lucrative acquisition of RAD as part of improving their own strategic position in the healthcare delivery marketplace. The "tipping point" for such an acquisition might very well be when said acquisition can be seen as potentially earnings accretive. IMO RAD is best positioned for any such combination of events and should continue the debt repurchase and rollover activities. This will soon become a "Virtuous Circle" that feeds upon itself to dramatically improve earnings and share pricing, including the multiple. IMO

  • McDonald's Or Wendy's: Who Won The 3rd Quarter Burger War? [View article]
    MCD is so 1950's, Wendy is so 21st Century. What do you drive, an Edsel? IMO Wendy's and MCD's will be trading at parity sometime next 10 years or so.

  • How Much Should You Believe About Income Inequality? [View article]
    straightforward modeling experiment. Back out the 12 million illegal aliens from the income distribution curve = Total # illegalsxmax$ in minimum quintile = total $ effect of illegal aliens on total income distribution curve. The remainder is the Residual income distribution curve , calculate average $ and quintiles (each quintile = 20%) compare to numbers from the original income distribution curve to get the difference nominally due to illegal aliens.

    The is about a hi-school freshman level problem in basic statistics. Easy to do for anyone with a math background.
    You will find 1)The average $ income of the residual curve has gone up. 2)the top income boundary of the lowest quintile has gone up 3)the difference between the top of the lowest quintile and the bottom (or top) of the highest quintile has been compressed.

    MY comment has to do with quantitative mathematics specifically averages,statistics,and quintiles. Your reply has to do with nonquantitative bullshit liberal feelings. I disagree with your feelings perspective while saying it is irrelevant to my comments which stand on their own merits.

    FURTHER AND IN ADDITION = As the number of illegal aliens in this country continues to grow unabated, AND as illegal aliens occupy the lowest income rung of the income distribution curve, ergo the illegal aliens increase the lowest quintiles of the income curve, dragging it down even further.

    Still making great trading profits on VXX selling puts when it goes down around 12%- 1 month out- and selling covered calls when it moves up 12% -1 month out. If they put it to me its ok, more covered calls to sell on the upside.

    So Synchrony is to become GE's "BITCOIN?" sounds unethical or at least should be illegal to me. I'll stay away from both and see what gets tossed out with the bath water. to much BS in the plan for my liking.

  • VXX And VXZ Now 5 Years Old [View article]
    I find the Vxx with trading options selling naked puts, selling covered calls on the swings to be great hedging vehicles. Today for example the VXX offered my portfolios a wonderful port in the downward storm. Great for trading, not a long term hold/investment in my opinion.

    As I recall GLD states quite clearly in their prospectus what the actual gold holdings are, and you are correct they are substantually less than 100% of market valuation on the shares.

    Best investment in the world is the one everyone thinks is a loser, until AFTER you buy into it. Then everyone changes their mind for whatever reason and piles in. Like the VXX for instance.

    Monday Tuesday A.M. Sold covered calls ATM to end October on all my VXX positions . Turned out to be a perfect traders move. I'd rather be lucky than good. great premiums. Plan on selling puts at around 14 when the current DIMocRATic debt ceiling issue is again temporarily resolved. Buy the Rumor, Sell the news

    We used to do that when we were kids growing up on the west side of Chicago. But we didn't use nickles, they were too expensive and so it would be stupid to risk losing a nickel. We used pennies, put em on the track. stood behind the penny 50 feet or so, last guy to jump off the track out of the way got to keep all the train squished pennies.
    Then we'd sell the train squished pennies -mostly to girls

    That must of been adrenalin we were feeling- and testosterone

    Agree, Like I said previously, I'm a trader not an academician and I go with what makes profits. VXX trading strategy, not more than 30 days out makes profits. At this point in time any such trading is betting on what politicians in USA will or will not do. I usually rely on the politicians to do the stupid, easiest thing at the last minute. I am rarely disappointed
