  • The Case For Exxon Mobil: Iran, Israel, And War [View article]
    Maybe you don't think I know what I'm talking about but this Russian military brass does. Here's the link.

    My point is that she has hesitated. The time to attack would have been in 2007 under a "friendlier" US administration that would have backed her. That ship has sailed and it's not possible for Israel to go it alone in a sustained manner. An Israeli attack is not going to happen unless the threat is imminent and it's far from that. Like the guy from Jerusalem said, no one is sweeping out their bomb shelters. It's just saber rattling.

    Russia wasn't passing the info. Civilians were. The Israeli air force deployed and went right to the border. Syria does have the most advanced Russian radars. Here's why. Think real hard on the logic of this. NOTHING LESS COULD POSSIBLY WORK ON THE ISRAELIS! Syria would be be the logical proving ground would it not? A Syrian nuclear facility bent on weapons R+D would be a logical client would it not? Russia is Syria's biggest power ally is she not? I'm calling BS on your BS. I'm not anti oil. I'm anti oil that leads us to conflict and mindless consumption. Don't get me started on fertilizer and pesticides.

    Wrong stereotype doofus. I drive a Subaru. And I'd ride a bike to work if I had a job but I've been self employed for 17 years, environmental services, big demand for them at least among the non mindless unlike yourself. I'm a university graduate with emphasis in hard science and lots of environmental science. I not only know what happens when I flush my toilet, I know everything about it. I'm a registered environmental health specialist. I can design a waste water treatment plant off the top of my head. I not only think that solar and wind are sustainable, I'm invested in it. So are the Chinese who are ahead of us because of people like you who oppose it on myopic "viability" issues. You simply do not know what you are talking about. I bet that you are at least 50 pounds over weight. I do live in a blue state and I always vote green. The greenest candidate gets my vote. My first vote was for Jimmy Carter. I hated Reagan. I hated W worse. I think Obama is good in the vein of the last great Republican who would be Theodore Roosevelt. The day that "big oil" is no longer a viable enterprise will be a great moment in history.

    That's right, Hezbollah and Hamas are too scared to be Iranian surrogates any longer. Instead of an eye for an eye, Israel grabs the whole head plus their genitals.

    Israel can't finish in a week. They have a week's worth of ammo unless they have some of those bunker busting tactical nukes I've heard about but that would mean pulling the nuclear trigger first, a fatal error for them no doubt. Israel doesn't have the muscle to take out Iran especially with China and Russia opposing them. Israel is NOT GOING TO ATTACK! Get that out of all your fool heads you war mongering doofuses. I know you think that "turning the middle east to a glass parking lot" amounts to a viable foreign policy but it's pure sociopathy. War of this magnitude means mass genocide. If you advocate that, then you are morally bankrupt.

    I wouldn't buy Exxon if it was the last company on earth, not their gas, not their stock, not their hats and mugs from their Exxon online store.

    Obama is not anti drilling. He's anti insane lunatic drilling. Even without Canadian oil being exported from the US Gulf of Mexico because they can't get a pipeline to their own coast, the US is on the cusp of net energy export. You know why? We're drilling our asses off. Canada can keep its filthy oil. We have natural gas and that's the way we should go. He was right to kill the pipeline that would only serve to export to China. That pipeline is not to serve US interests. I think Obama's energy policy especially on cleaner fuels and renewables is light years smarter than drill baby drill. Go suck on some clean coal you partisan hack. If this country ever puts another big oil toady in the White House ever again, we are so screwed.

    Israel nearly attacked Iran late in the Bush administration when it had American backing ie. Dick Cheney, John Bolton, etc. At the time, there was quite a bit of fervor for an American attack on Iran that Israel would have happily spearheaded. There was a US build up ground forces such as M-1 tanks in Kazakhstan or one of those Stans that borders Iran. It was reported in the Russian press but since sanitized. In fact, Israel went on alert and put its planes in the air for an attack. I knew this because of ham radio chatter at the time. An attack was imminent but something stopped it at the last second. I think it was the Russians. They're pissed about the Israeli attack on al Kibar, the former secret Syrian nuclear facility. Apparently Israel made a mockery of Russia's most advanced radars in the attack. Israel will not attack Iran because Russia will attack Israel if they do. Just look at Russia's Security Council vote on Syrian sanctions recently. Make no mistake. They back Iran and they're not afraid to pull a trigger. Israel could attack still but it's not all clear for them so far as the only push back coming from feeble Islamic nations. They need to worry about the Bear so in my opinion, it's not gonna happen. It's saber rattling. Iran will be forced to let inspectors in at any time and the situation will diffuse somewhat. The middle east will have its form of MAD like the rest of us.

  • Apple Ready For A February Sell Off [View article]
    If aapl goes to 900 dollars a share, you have a double, not bad but I can point to numerous inexpensive stocks where that double is much more likely and sooner. Take amsc for example. It's beaten down to 5 bucks a share but it has traded at 70 and there's a great chance that it will be trading above 10 this year. I buy and sell aapl, never more than 300 shares. Buying is not the hard part. Selling is. At some point in retrospect, you buy and hold through hell or high water guys are going to wish that you had sold but that day is not near or even this year.

    9 million dollars worth of aapl, I'm so jealous. Here's why you're dead wrong Mr Pedro. If you had traded your shares well ie. selling high and buying low, you'd have 40,000 shares of aapl.

  • Rare Earth Elements: Rare-ing To Go [View article]
    I agree with the emphasis on the heavy rare earth plays. This sector gets painted with too broad of a brush so when you're analyzing an investment in ree's, a key question is what kind? Some are more rare than others and some will remain more rare than others. I have my money in Ucore, (uuraf) but I trade in and out of mcp simply because they're a first mover and they have actual cash flow.

  • Q4 GDP: Prognosis Still Negative [View article]
    The trend is your friend but the indices are looking a tad overbought. The vix is waaay tooo complacent. I don't trust it, I would only go long here with extreme caution and only with superior stock picking. I'm up 16% ytd but I have been selling in to the strength. I'm still long 50% with mlp's (epd), silver (slw), ree's, (uuraf, my largest holding) and amsc that I bought way cheap among a sprinkling of others like Whole Foods and Triangle Petroleum. I sold my aapl and eep for nice profits. I'm in 20% cash, 10% uupt, 10% faz and 10% tvix. I'm getting crushed on my shorts but not for long in my opinion. I shorted more on Friday. I know a top when I see one. The earnings season is almost over and the news will shift back to Europe and the semi-soft landing or not in China. If you didn't learn in August how fast markets can turn, you didn't learn anything.
