Re: Sell: SodaStream

Well, I have to admit that I am a "stonehead" sometimes, so it was not just the lesson...it was viewing the mistake in the face, over and over again over the course of many years....

VCLT Underperform

Perched on the verge of a dangerous precipice created by the Fed's constant buying spree of government debt and pitifully low rates, this fund is poised near its 52 week high with a Scrooge-like 4.5% yield and a risky 13.8 year duration. This means [more]

Re: Sell: SodaStream

You have my sympathy... and my observation that current events were entirely predictable since simple survival is involved.

Re: Organic industry risk

Just yesterday, I had a conversation with a rural outback ORGANIC apple grower that I have known for nearly 30 years. They were orgasmic, uh organic in the early 80's and made a good living at it UNTIL about 2004 or 05 when they were squeezed out of [more]

BND Underperform

Already moribund, the total bond market is headed for trash can status as the Fed exits its idiot bond buying QE program. Already pitiful, EVEN THOUGH THE FED IS BUYING ABOUT THE WHOLE NEW ISSUE SUPPLY NOW. Scaling back to $35Billion (yes that with a [more]

VCIT Underperform

Just seeing the tip of the iceberg as the FED starts to exit its buying program. ALL Bond funds are wildly overbought. Anyone buying now will realize soon that at these low yields they can NEVER recover their money in funds will start to bail. The [more]

TGT Underperform

Just breaking out of its disastrous flirt with identity theft and compromised data, just breaking in new management in an improving retail market, TGT serves up a needless insult to some of its customers, AND fumbles not only the decision on [more]

To the contrary...you just do not like the information I share...and perhaps the blunt style in which I share it. which is perfectly ok. I am not a (direct) investor in Priceline and will never be. I may be in Tesla when they achieve critical mass, a [more]
