Re: ILOD Saturday: Why Interest Rates Need to Ri

Yes, a pitiful return asset class but an asset class nonetheless.

I agree with your conclusion, but not with the idea that corps and people take on more debt. Dont know the actually statistics offhand but I recall seeing that most have [more]

Re: Today's update: Oil crashes we buy 6 more co

I may be wrong about the exact timing, but I think 3 important things happen in and around the next 30 days:

1. XOM either fixes or works around their major gasoline unit problems in LA "fixing" the 100,000 BBL/day short that is [more]

Re: Today's update: Oil crashes we buy 6 more co

Correcto... we enter the zone of maximum volatility (IMHO) in the coming 30 days bad news in ME sends prices up....next bad news about demand and storage sends prices down. (repeat) Perhaps I will be wrong on this one but its more interesting to [more]

Re: Proxy access

At times people try to hide bad character and cannot. At times they don't even bother to hide it. Some things never change....and BAC is one of them

Well, that MIGHT eventually reform their customer unfriendly practices and otherwise objectionable behavior, but I won't hold my breath....

Re: Today's update: Oil crashes we buy 6 more co

Doubt Oil will hit $20...35 maybe.... 40 maybe...and we will NEVER hit 100% on storage. Can't. Working capacity for pipelines and refineries and shipping changes, surges needs to be somewhat less...maybe 10% nobody knows for sure because its never [more]

Re: Today's update: Oil crashes we buy 6 more compan

I still have hope for 30-45 days of rough times for oil prices.... Not sure it will survive the ramp up of driving season, but I just saw an unattributed report that oil storage is much higher than estimated just two weeks ago...getting close to [more]

Re: The Power of TGA Community

If it IS 10 or less than 20 anyway, you will have my FULL attention. Ive never believed that I could be attentive to more than about a dozen, when I was being honest with myself.... a sadly all too rare event ;)

Re: Picking up the analysis challenge

I certainly agree with "less chance" However dont be "Fooled" (ha) into substituting "zero" for "less". Its been done before. All sorts of companies have "drafted" cash or borrowed to pay dividends. [more]

Re: Picking up the analysis challenge

While it is really hard to fake cash payouts, it is well to recall that its been done.....the marks ALL thought it was not possible to fake payouts....and while any Ponzi (or should I say Maddoff) scheme is technically not "faking" the [more]

Re: Picking up the analysis challenge

Now this is quite interesting to me. Not the specifics of the numbers but the general observation drawn from the specific (and anecdotal admittedly) instance of bad data masquerading as information. I have long had this suspicion (and of course I am [more]

Adam: regardless of what the experts and the charts say ("the charts never lie") there are 30-60 days of recovery from bad weather and the serious gas consumption increase. Gasoline should be hitting bottom in the next few weeks, but [more]

XOM starts stock sale ;-)

I've not been in tune with where this fits in your portfolios, BUT since oil has been falling and XOM has been falling, I have been waiting for it to drop to 52 wk low. It did so today. Dont know how long the sale lasts or how deep the discount will [more]

Re: Admitting you're wrong is the first step to rich

Whilst I think Oil has some more black days ahead (pun intended ;-)) I suspect we are approaching the window of most downward pressure....which I expect to be 30-60 days out. HOWEVER, being loath to miss the boat, I bought a small opener of XOM at [more]
