  • Undisclosed Executive History May Be Final Blow For BOFI [View article]
    I am willing to entertain your thesis if you are willing to entertain my thesis.

    OCC, FDIC, California Banking Regulators, and numerous hedge funds all have scores of forensic accountants and analysts with access to data and resources you do not, but somehow you and you alone have the correct version of the events? This strikes me as unlikely.

    Also for what it's worth, FDIC will NEVER fine a bank into insolvency... That's more or less equivalent to your homeowner's insurance burning down your house because you forgot to install smoke detectors.

    I'll support any 'weak' administration that has some discretion before leading us into an imminent nuclear judgment day

    I think if you were to look outside the march of well paid people moving into DC, you'd see a different reality

  • Futures slide as oil plummets [View news story]
    I think you've had too much eggnog.

    Of course, you could lead the way in divestment by immediately turning off your computer, heat, power, trading your car in for a bicycle, forage for non-farmed food only, never taking public transportation and certainly never ever go on a wasteful travel vacation ever again.

  • How To Buy A Few Premium REITs That Deliver Something Special [View article]
    This also becomes more true as people get older. If I'm 60, that Breiting's worth of stock ownership won't appreciate nearly as much if I hold off on one in my 20s.

    And for what it's worth, I own a Bulova
