Re: FKA: GMCR

Gap closed. Is this starting to look like a bottom?

Pretty good chance of this being the bottom in my book. My "potential bottom alert" signal (weekly RSI drops to 30) was triggered at 100, now at 84 the RSI is very low and [more]

Re: Crying Wolf

However, one also has to have the perspective to recognize that 2008 was the third worst crash ever in terms of the S&P so even when we get another one, chances are it won't be as dramatic.

Maybe. Maybe not. This site has 2008 as [more]

Re: Crying Wolf

It is easy to laugh now, when "the market" hasn't seen any extended significant downturn in several years. And there is certainly a powerful message in there that no matter how scholarly and brilliantly constructed someone's forecast may [more]

Re: NGVC - Natural Grocers

Re: Once in a Blue Moon Update

I'd also like to figure out some quality companies in renewable energy & batteries to look into.

Johnson Controls article

Positive article on Johnson Controls at Seeking Alpha by Chuck Carnevale, who I believe is a former TMFer. He's billing it as a good "dividend growth" stock, which is what I'm interested in these days.
