Re: "War on GMO Food Critics. . "

Unfortunately, Ro, you are correct on this one. I reckon it has more to do with Lax, lazy and incurious "journalists" and writers, and to a certain extent even lazier editors all shielded by the excuse of word count.

Re: Fascinating/exciting investing theory/metric

This is a LOT to take in...BUT I always get suspicious when huge swaths of data are taken and crunched in ways that are hard to follow and then figures of merit (FOM) that are aggregates! (like 10 year S&P total return) are used for correlations. [more]

Re: Forecasting Your Emotions is the Key to inve

The fact that there has NOT BEEN a meaningful correction (10%) in literally years ought to scare the pants off everyone. It does me.

Re: Replace bonds with dividend stocks

Reflecting only on my own situation: I never owned an AMEX card until I started my own business. They make it VERY EASY for a business to obtain a business credit card and ostensibly Credit ;-) even for a very young business. This is a clever [more]

Re: Another view of oil

The biggest problem I've found with investing is the things you DONT know. and maybe cant no ha ;-)

Re: Morning market update

I like your concepts and am interested enough to follow this board for a while. My preference for my very small equity (single stocks) slice is for reliable, large great div producers like F and INTC, both of which I own at less than 60% of current [more]

Re: Solar carports

Makes a lot of sense.....Because carport solar is expensive it relies on states with higher subsidies not an exact quote, but near enough...

Re: Tangent Time: Tiny(?) Tampering

Re: Are banks evil?

I am really in a quandary on this whole subject. On the one hand, I dont see that most of the MF writers I read have much courage to critique the malevolent behavior and the risk that Chase, BAC, and Citi subject all of us (not just their customers) [more]

Re: PEP: any eyesore in Pro-social portfolio

Mainly for Ro and Alyce: The idea that there is such a definable thing as SRI interests me, the vagaries and armwaving aspects of its practice at MF frustrate and repel me. No doubt a lot of you wonder why I bother? If there is a rational testable [more]
