  • China sets the first tranche of rare earth export quotas at 10,546 tons for 2012, and says overall export quotas for 2012 will be unchanged from 2011 to "guarantee" international demand and keep supplies "basically stable." The 2011 quota was 30,184 tons, but less than half of that was actually exported in the first 11 months.  [View news story]
    China cannot be trusted with their numbers but do not take them lightly. They are setting the stage and just made a deal with Afganistan for OIL. They just made a Currency deal between China & Japan so they will not need dollars. They are being quiet while we speculate. Their actions dictate their motives and Rare Earths are used in MANY Military Applications. Look how fast they got Molycorp up and running again. China wants the Yuan to be the World Reserve Currency and they have stated it publicly.
    On top of them hacking into our largest Energy & Exploration Companies they just hacked The U.S. Chamber of Commerce so they know what we think and what we are going to say before we say it. We are in a Resource War & as we are loosing influence throughout the world new Alliances are being born. China, North Korea, & Russia.
    One day they will no longer need us.
    When ALL of our American Corporations do business in China they are giving up their most Precious Commodity. Their INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY. It's The Law of Dimishing Returns.
    When GE or Boeing gets a multi Billion dollar deal to make a specific product they will only get that contract ONCE.
    Then the product GE or Boeing had them build the Chinese under cut the supply and become our competition. Even if it's 10% of market share they take it not only hurts shareholder value, it's TRILLIONS of Dollars in lost revenue along with the loss of American Jobs. These short term gains will lead to Long Term Losses.

  • Why Investments In China Will Eventually Be Worthless [View article]
    China is our biggest threat. There banks were upgraded and ours were downgraded. China & Japan just made a Currency Pact. They hacked into our think tanks. Stafors was just hacked along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. They know what WE are going to say before we even say it.
    They also hacked into our Energy Companies to see our Exploration Fields as a deterrent.
    China was what America was during our Industrial Revolution.
    This article is sad.
    Their actions speak for themselves and their goal is to become the World Reserve Currency.
    NEVER UNDER ESTIMATE YOUR ENEMY.
    When our American Corporations in which are doing business in China they give up their most Precious Commodity. Their INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
    It's The Law of Diminishing Returns
    Your seeing it happen before your eyes & it's ignorant. Why is Dupont, Intel, Oracle, AMD, HPQ lower guidance because when a company like Boeing signs a multi billion dollar deal for a specific product with the Chinese it will only happen ONCE. They will NEVER get that same contract for that same product again.
    These short term gains will become long term losses.
    What does the CEO care? These are the REAL iceos who pinch pennies for their quarterly profits with NO accountability.
    America is at a Tipping Point

  • Investing Into The Predictable Future - China, Nanotechnology, Oil, Food And Gold [View article]
    While I am ALL for improvement until we see job creation which will only happen from GRASS ROOTS GROWTH. This Country needs to reinvent itself & China knows everything we do. I would not be the least surprised if they have Satellites over the Whie Houe, CIA, NSA, Senate or tapped wires underground.
    They already hacked into our Energy Companies & The U.S Chamber of Commerce! Our U.S. Corporations that do business in China give up their most Precious Commodity. Their INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.

    Its The Law of Dimishing Returns.

    Russia is in BED with China for their resources and new geopolitical landscapes are being born.
    Nanotechnology has an ETF ticker is PXN, not something I would invest i just ye. It's ran poorly with high expense ratio and very small market cap but we are just touching the surface of Nanotechnology.
    We need to get our house in order as iceos who come & go running Americas Largest Corporations with NO accountability.

    When Boeing gets a multi Billion dollar deal from the Chinese it will be ONCE for a specific product. Same would go for companies like GE ORCL INTL just to name a few and the list goes on for these short term gains can in fact be realized as long term revenue losses as China has the best of ALL worlds.
    They have technology from the U.S. & EU and the market share we desire from China long term is an illusion as they are remaking & rebranding our products.
    The Future is Revenue Losses along with American jobs which is something no Economist can even calculate.

  • Expect Mergers And Acquisitions In The Gold Mining Industry Moving Into 2012 [View article]
    You hit the nail on the head. Just do. The opposite of what they say on CNBC. Gold takes a breather which was needed. Prices will remain stable if not go higher. I think you should have mentioned Hecla Mining HL cheap and pays a dividend. The stock was even higher before the crash and when Gold was half the price as well. Wait until more countries Nationalize which I believe you will start to see more happen then the people will see the frenzy.
    When you buy a stock like GE we have to rely on Jeff Immelt and his team to actually do good. I hope he is for America
    When you buy BAC you have to rely on the dumbest CEO I have ever seen. I hear stories of Doctors , Lawyers , Self Employed Business Leaders who are the BACK BONE of America not lending along with all the other banks which can be the end of the U.S.
    People forget the crash of 1929. The Great Depression did not happen until years after due to lack of Credit & Lending
    Yet Corporations have TRILLIONS sitting in Cash which spurs NO GROWTH.
    Lack of Demand is BS. Pure utter BS
    It takes money to make money and they should unleash the Krakken! Cut the tape and put America back to work.
    To even start a factory you need a permit for this, permit that, state, federal, regulations that is almost designed to fail and we need manufacturing now more than ever.
    Instead whether anyone likes it or not we are witnesses to watching our Country & Lack of Leadership with A divided Nation, Political Gridlock, Social Unrest etc.

  • Precious Metals Pullbacks In Perspective [View article]
    As a former employee at MS we are seeing for the first time the UUP which is the Dollar Bull Index go up along with Gold going up at the same time. For years we surpress the price of Precious Metals. King Dollar would come in and wipe it all out. Your not seeing this trend and I am watching it dwindle away along with our standing on the world stage. There is one thing about charts, they will never show you the future. You are starting to see countries Nationalize Gold Mining, you are starting to see GDX GDXJ NUGT miners that are starting to hold their own supply along with cash on their balance sheet.
    This has taken new form and the history books and financial models are being re written as we go. What scares me the most is we are in the most volatile markets the world has ever seen. Up 2-3% Down 2-3% etc and it's happening almost daily.
    I give Warren Buffet much credit as an American Icon & Leader investing into FSLR. Gold has everything to do with America as our fiscal house is a disaster and the dollar is starting to loose it's influence as the World Reserve Currency
    -So much so that June 2012 China is Year of the Dragon is opening their own Precious Metals Exchange so they can buy in their own currency and start flushing out our paper as it's no secret their Finance Ministery openly accuses the U.S. & EU for surpressing the prices and Gold should be at 5000 dollars an ounce and Silver should between 6-900 an ounce all at a minimum based on record deficits.
    - There is still lack of liquidity in the system. Unless your a Fortune 500 Company.
    - bottom line is WE HAVE NO GROWTH.
    - We need Government & Private Sector to start caring about America instead of dirty deals, Corruption, Lobbyists because they are KILLING AMERICA! We need to rewind 30-40 years on Regulation and get going again otherwise I'll be buying Gold Forever as the only TRUE preservation of wealth since civilization started
    -Right now all we have are iceos who come & go running Americas Largest Corporations that were built by TRUE American Ideals and these guys just pinch pennies for their quarterly earnings with huge pay and no accountability. Jeff Immelt who runs GE & Brian Moynihan who runs BAC have lost TRILLIONS in shareholder value and net worths and these guys one day leave with a few hundred million that they just got paid to do. The question is what did they do?
    - Between the 2 if they both had a 1/4 of a heart and some brains Moynihan can help fix housing & GE can innovate and bring jobs back home.
    - I can't even get into the TRILLIONS of dollars of Intellectual Property GE gave to China along with all the American jobs that went with it
    - The worst part is Obama has him as our jobs czar. I thought I would never see a jobs czar in America!
    - so if I had to choose to invest in the S&P which has gone nowhere in over 10 years or Gold Long Term I will choose the Gold. The next shoe to drop is the insurers and whole life policies and variable annuities

  • How To Earn 20% On Industrial Dividend Stocks [View article]
    The biggest risk America has is NO REAL GROWTH. We have iceos that come and go who basically pinch pennies for quarterly earnings and we are giving away our most PRECIOUS COMMODITIES which is our INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY.
    CAT has done great and the use of option contracts have increased by approx 20% this year alone as actual share volume in buying stocks have been some of the lowest levels on record and who can blame them.
    However this chart is a bit dangerous just as any other chart as this is based on a one year duration.
    I worked on Wall Street and I would encourage everyone to look at your portfolios in shorter durations due to economic conditions
    There is no chart in the world that can show future outcomes and as we globalize do not kid yourself when China is not re-engineering CAT machinery , BA planes, GE products across the board and we have to quantify that to most of our Multinationals.
    - the exception would be MCD , KO and a few others.
    - Long Term this is our greatest risk
    - The CEO of DOW Chemical said it best. The people who are manufacturing our iPads, kindles, smartphones, along with all these components are going to be the people who most likely going to be the ones that make the 2nd, 3rd,4th,5th etc generations of products.
    - Then you have to worry about how much market share they will take away over the long term and the competition will be fierce and eating away at our market share.
    - This is something that nobody can quantify. Nail Ferguson is one of the few Economist from Harvard who is speaking about this and the problem we face Long Term which has everything to do with CAT and the entire DJIA
    - The fact is the S&P has gone nowhere in the last 10 years.
    - When picking stocks you have to worry about management, market share, cash flows, balance sheets but within the next 20 years we need to invert our economy, fix housing and rebuild America.
    - Organic growth is our only chance to survive and stay competitive

  • The End of Growth In The United States [View article]
    ICEOs that come & go and run some of Americas Largest Corporations who pinch pennies for their quarterly earnings and are as short sighted with no NO REAL GROWTH and giving up our most PRECIOUS Commodity which is our Innovation & Our Intellectual Property

    Our biggest threat is China
    -China is building components for our military with contracts from Raytheon which they are literrally and intentionally putting bad, re used and dummy parts in military issued machines and putting our soldiers in harms way and there is NO accountability.
    - This is one example now quantify that to the Dow 30 and the majority of Americas largest Corporations.


    - China only allows a 49% controlling interest where the Chinese own the majority of the 51% interest in ALL of our American Corporations that set up shop and we give and gave and continue to give our most precious commodity is our intellectual property.

    - The constant devaluations of the S&P in the last few years is just the beginning as China does develop will become our biggest competitors against our largest Corporations.
    This means less Revenue, earning downgrades across the board with our Blue Chips

    GE BA DOW MSFT ORCL which have all fallen victim to China from Piracy and theft of Intellectual Property. The Chinese Government took and uses Oracles Software in their own version and Boeing will have new competition in 2 years or less when they find themselves competing against then selling planes at half the price.
    - The Chinese have BOTH the U.S. & EU technology and innovation that they are using as their platform and not only did we hand it to them on a silver platter, we paid them to Do it so they have a very solid foundation to build upon with the most unfair trading practices and more complaints with the WTO than any Country in the World.
    - The question that I ask any economist, analyst or Dr. suess is how much in FUTURE LOSS IN REVENUE ALONG WITH ALL THE AMERICAN JOBS THAT WE HAVE ALREADY LOST AND MORE JOBS THAT WILL BE LOST WILL IT HAVE COST US FOR SHORT TERM QUARTERLY PROFITS AND NO LONG TERM GAIN.

    - We have real iceos who are now running Americas Largest Corporations that help and built this Country who pinch pennies for short term profits with no real Long Term Gain or MORAL OBLIGATION to our Country.
    - Evaluating the DJIA or SPY or QQQ, the S&P has gone nowhere in 10 years because we have had no REAL growth.
    - These are the things we should be talking about because anyone who reads this should worry about their children's and their children's children future because America is at The Tipping Point

    - For those who think China is in trouble then look at why Americas banks were downgraded and Chinas banks were upgraded just this week. You can just invest in FXI to get most exposure to Chinas largest Corporations like an equivalent to The Dow 30 as a less risky investment but still getting the exposure to China.
    - China is elusive and cannot be trusted. They have made their intentions very clear by their actions and plan to become the largest economy in the world and they are right on track.

    - ICEOs need accountability based on performance. Clearly the Status Quo is NOT working

    - America has the largest debt in our Nations History of over 15 Trillion Dollars and yet we are in DIRE straits for investment and we have NOTHING to show for it.
    - Rotting Infrastructure, 1/3 of our Countries Bridges are deemed unsafe to drive on and underneath us Millions of Miles of Pipelines for water, gas, electric are also rotting. You need only to watch the special they had on CNBC to be disgusted on wonder where ALL of our money goes.
    - American Corporations sitting on TRILLIONS IN CASH HAVE A MORAL OBLIGATION TO INVEST IN OUR COUNTRY OTHERWISE WE WILL HAVE OUR OWN GREEK TRAGEDY!

    - We do not need a "Jobs Bill" We need A National Smart Grid Infrastructure Project that in itself would be a jobs bill. A GAME CHANGER. Like The Manhattan Project. It would help pay down the deficit over the long term, it will solve our problem of Our Nations Security on Energy Policy

    - Its time we clean our own backyard from Political Corruption, Corporate Lobbyists that leads to A Divided House, A Divided Nation, Social Unrest and we loose sight on what is important, what is FACT and work on solutions & I would challenge anyone to debate on CNBC anytime for America!

    If Eisenhower or Roosevelt were alive there is no question people would be in jail. I have said it so many times in my previous comments Eisenhowers outgoing speech was a Warning.

    -China is now the 2nd Largest Economy in the World and they are laying their groundwork as most major economists forecast they will over take the U.S. as the largest economy in the world in less than 20 years at best. They already know our military supply chain.

    - June of 2012 China is opening their own Precious Metals Exchange so they can buy Gold , Silver , Palladium , Platinum etc in their own currency. China has purchased record tonnes of Gold this year and cut back Silver Exports by 5% and all Rare Earths.

    - ICEOs need accountability based on performance. Clearly the Status Quo is NOT working

    - America has the largest debt in our Nations History of over 15 Trillion Dollars and yet we are in DIRE straits for investment. American Corporations sitting on TRILLIONS IN CASH HAVE A MORAL OBLIGATION TO INVEST IN OUR COUNTRY OTHERWISE WE WILL HAVE OUR OWN GREEK TRAGEDY!

    - We do not need a "Jobs Bill" We need A National Smart Grid Infrastructure Project that would be a jobs bill. A GAME CHANGER. Like The Manhattan Project. It would help pay down the deficit over the long term, it will solve our problem of Our Nations Security on Energy Policy
    - The Pickens Plan is great & Nat Gas is great but to go from one liquid gold of oil to another liquid Gold of Gas should be PART of the Solution and not the golden egg that gives the entire country a job is just nuts
    - Its time we clean our own backyard from Political Corruption, Corporate Lobbyists that leads to A Divided House, A Divided Nation, Social Unrest and we loose sight on what is important, what is FACT and work on solutions & I would challenge anyone to debate on CNBC anytime for America!

  • Microsoft: A Strong Buy [View article]
    Chester income investor. We will probably see a cat bounce this week with a bit of a rally. They usually do that at the end of the month USO the statements don't look so bad. Most people do not watch the market day to day, but Italian yields may damper and 2012 you should be defensive in every way you can. If you rely on income. There is BIP DUK ED and specific Asset based REITs GRT RSO if you want to get a bit aggressive. You can go into BAB. Just depends on your age and investment objectives. If your on a fixed income & looking for yield the technology sector is the last place you would want to put your money. Please do not take that the wrong way, I am a Retirement Planning Specialist & Certified Financial Advisor and use to work at MS.
    I would be extremely cautious but if your a trader than knock yourself out :) Respectfully. Ian

    MSFT has gone NOWHERE. People have been beating this drum for 10 years. I have already begged Bill Gates to come back. This Country needs him more than ever. Poor management. Bill Gates comes back then you will have your shareholder value. I equate Palmer in Tech to Moynihan at BAC. If they both owned Funeral Parlors nobody will die.
    Does anybody have any idea on how much Intellectually Property of MSFT leading technology has already been stolen by China?
    I do not even know if Bill Gates knows but I can tell you this, they duplicate versions of ALL MSFT software in China already for 1/4 price. This is NO JOKE.
    Palmer goes the stock alone would go up.
    Every years conference of new products is the same old upgraded versions. Windows 7 was nice but Gates needs to come back.
    You will get back ALL you returns and then some.
    He really can make a change in America. There is poverty here and inadequate education across the board. I hope Melinda will let him come back to do what he does best.
    Slims the richest man, Bill Gates needs to just Walk through the doors and at least we will get back the richest man in the world status.
    America is in trouble & needs it's BEST. I would encourage anyone who reads this to Facebook, Twitter, Google etc & with the utmost professional courtesy.
    We need Bill Gates back at Microsoft. That's the bottom line.

  • Adam Smith Was Right: Excess Profits Get Competed Away [View article]
    Barrons recent article shows the returns of our Politicians Investments and "Stated" Net Worth of Darrell Issa of just over 300m. "To give an indication of what House members' outperformance is worth, investing at the stock market's long-term total return of 10% would mean $10,000 would grow to $25,937 in 10 years. But with their special investment acumen, their 16.8% annual returns would leave them with $47,253 in 10 years." this is due to Policy & Corporate America and their lobbyists to OUR government House from The Senate & Congress is So CORRUPT it's KILLING America! Some of the Aides if not ALL of them. 60% of Congress is Multi-Millionaires all in the article & ALL CORRUPT.
    TIME magazine had Article on how difficult it is to make or create a business in America compared to developed Countries in the EU & we rank among the worst. I was shocked myself.
    This has much to do with the DJIA because it is a reflection of our Country. Our markets have gone nowhere in the last 10 years. Companies making record profits are also going nowhere.
    Having the experience of Working on Wall Street no trader has ever seen market volatility like this in their lives and history books will be re written.
    President Obama could learn from The Lessons by FDR and his Presidency. He really should read that, Bypass our broken House and he would be doing the Financial Sector a Favor.

    With that being said how many times this year have valuations come down on Corporate Earnings & GDP
    We are giving Intellectual Property to China in Exchange for Cheaper Labor.
    FORBES Article from Chinas Finance Minister Xie Xuren Openly accuses The U.S. & EU of manipulating the Price of Precious Metals. He's on Forbes Richest Man list & Of course we do, this is no secret if you have ever worked on Wall Street. You need to only look up ticker UUP Dollar Bull Index and when that is up 99% of the time PMs are down. You have currency going up and down just like EUO Bear Index which has done me well and then there is the Ticker CNY which is Chinas Renminbi.
    Bottom line. There is NO REAL GROWTH.
    I can sit here all day and give stock recs and in a market like this and I would say to be defensive with some great utilities and very specific asset based REITs
    The REAL question that NO economist, analysts, financial wizard of any kind is how to quantify the Future Losses in Revenue along with ALL the American Jobs that have already been lost and will be lost when China becomes our main competitor and we loose market share.
    We have Google- China - BIDU
    We have Apple- China - Lobovo
    They have cut the Rare Earths Exports
    They are the Largest Thieves of Intellectual Property & Piracy
    They have the most Unfair & UnBalanced Fair Trade Agreements
    Their Devaluation of their Currency although were no better and that is a Zero Sum Charge.
    They have increased their gold reserves to lay the ground work as they want to become the World Reserve Currency.
    At what cost is it ALL worth over the Long Term and nobody can answer this question.
    We have iceos that come & go from Americas Largest Corporations where they just pinch pennies for their quarterly earnings and are as short sighted as our politicians being reelected and they have TRILLIONS sitting in cash.

    The claim "Uncertainty" is BS and there should be a MORAL Obligation to OUR Country. The Status Quo has to change otherwise America will have it's own Greek Tragedy!
    I would challenge anybody to debate on CNBC for America!

  • Bernstein And Ricardo Report: Cheap Will Beat Cool In Vehicle Electrification [View article]
    Are you referring to the Peter Pan non-fictional version of Free Market Capitalism where 10 of our largest banks control 80% of ALL U.S. Assets? Is that Capitalism or Socialism & if you do not think this Country is at that Tipping Point that you delicatley speak of You will need Binoculars. Glasses will not help you. It's not the 80s anymore. Brazil & China are no longer 3rd World Countries & A Calculator never lies. I wonder if President Eisenhower were alive, what he would think of you? A man or someone who gave up on his work & a Quitter? Failure is no longer an Option if you care about the Future of America. More important our children's future and theirs as well. I feel sorry for you & the fact you feel that way. Your the same guy who said The Hoover Dam was also impossible because that to was once a Peter Pan Bedtime Story. So was The Empire State Building.
