  • S&P 500: Generational Opportunity In The Making [View article]
    Well a Bear Market wouldn't you be short, just like in a Bull Market you would wish to be long? And if she really believes her BS, wouldn't she have rightly been short from 666? Hell, that's only 300% WRONG!

    Oh Vey, where do these people come from? When the market triples, and makes new highs, you can cast it however you like, but that is a BULL Market. It is right to be long. How much more simple a definition do you need?

    And if the author truly believes we are in a Bear market, show us the records of where she has been short for five years! That ought to be an impressive statement. Otherwise, it is just a bunch of academic rubbish with no connection to the real world.

  • Notes from Goldman Sachs' earnings call [View news story]
    Oil collapsing.

    Interest rates collapsing.

    Heading into a deflationary period.

    But the GS economists assure the muppets that "long term growth prospects remain positive".

    Wasn't their forecast for interest rates to be like 3 1/2%; and oil was supposed to be $140 something.

    You just cant make up the embarrassment this firm heaps on itself, and yet people still line up to get fleeced.

  • Study links hundreds of earthquakes to fracking [View news story]
    There's some shocking information!

    But the energy companies made money, paid the appropriate politicians, and bought enough TV time to convince the great unwashed that destroying the earth is in their best interests.

  • Bitcoin prices dive below $300 [View news story]
    Pretty much nails it Tack. And its overall relevance in the payment world is, well, irrelevant.

  • RX For Revisionist Bunkum: A Lehman Bailout Wouldn't Have Saved The Economy [View article]
    Such a can of worms!

    Bear wasn't much of a threat to Goldman, so they were allowed to live.
    Lehman? Maybe more of a threat, so they were killed off.

    At the end of the day, what actually happened? We bailed out Goldman by bailing out AIG.

    And here we are, some six years later, and our economy is still paying the price. A much better solution would have been to let them that were bust go bye-bye. Contrary to Hank's pleading in front of Congress (obviously on behalf of his employer, Goldman Sachs), the sun would have come up, the system would have been cleansed, and plenty of capable outfits would have stepped in to fill the void left by the elimination of the vampire squid.

  • Starr International v. U.S. begins today [View news story]
    How ungrateful!

    But it puts us one step closer to exposing Paulson for what he did to this country in the name of saving Goldman Sachs. Greenburg deserves what he got; that's the way the markets operate. But the people didn't deserve what Paulson did to this country. How many years have we suffered as a result of his "the sun won't come up tomorrow" presentation to Congress?

  • Stocks rally for broad-based gains; small-caps gain too [View news story]
    I heard Dennis Gartman also was saying he got out of stocks yesterday.

    Sort of like his "get out of oil" call a couple weeks back...just before it ran to the upside.

  • Analysts defend Alibaba's valuation; Yahoo an activist target? [View news story]
    Their "thought" was if I get caught puking out those 500,000 shares of BABA I was just gifted by the underwriters at 68, I'll never get another syndicate deal.

    So I went and sold a bunch of YHOO short just to make sure I was hedged in case the BABA thing, whatever it is, starts to tank.

  • Alibaba now indicated to open in $87-$89 range (updated) [View news story]
    US Retail are the people (institutions) that got good allocations with the proviso that they would be in the market to buy a similar amount .....Goldman calls them the lemmings.....we'll see. Today is quad expiration and rebalance day.....won't effect BABA, but could do funny things to the overall market.

  • Alibaba prices IPO at $68 [View news story]
    Well, if you don't get shares today/tomorrow, there are a similar number, or more, coming off lock-up in the months ahead, so there will be plenty to go around.

  • Will Home Depot Follow Target Downward Post Data Breach? [View article]
    If I understand the earnings guidance, they have flipped out the shares which they previously bought and have a $100 Million one time gain which will allow them to affirm their forward guidance.

    Street seems unsure of what to make of it AH. Basically unched.

  • Alibaba prices IPO at $68 [View news story]
    Got to love this one.....

    Nothing but bulls for a middleman....

    Whose primary business is as an agent in China....

    But is incorporated in the Cayman Islands...

    Which Company owns the assets in China....

    Which might not be legal...the "Foreign Ownership Issue"....

    And listed in the United States...

    But the books are 100% accurate, I am sure!

    Good luck all! Might want to take some off the table tomorrow at $90.....

  • Stocks pop as Hilsenrath says dovish Fed language to stay [View news story]
    This is better than Goldman adjusting their jobs numbers on the eve before the release. That hasn't been particularly accurate either.
