Re: Options vs. Just Doing Nothing

I rarely use options. Being a wasting asset, they are a bother with respect to time and attention. And because I use them rarely and in small amounts it's hard to say if it's worth it.

That being said, since I've become a more [more]

Re: a new non-opiod pain reliever approved

I guess we'll see. Nektar-181 (for which an NDA has been submitted to the FDA) is taken orally. Pfizer's Tanezumab is administered by injection. Being a long term chronic pain sufferer myself (having taken virtually every pain medication [more]

Re: Trump Just Didn’t Manage Putin Well at

First of all, I have no idea what $1T you're talking about. So there's that.

Second, the subject was DJT's treasonous Helsinki performance and the issuance of two indictments against Russian interference with our electoral [more]

Re: Trump Just Didn’t Manage Putin Well at

a 4 year old could have hacked the Democrats!

I wonder why it took 12 top Russian computer scientists working for the GRU and assorted other unnamed co-conspirators. They could have just grabbed one of the kids at our southern border [more]

Re: Pivotal: A Discussion with Steppenwulf

data does not just stay in the container, it is dynamic and constantly delivered to where it needs to go.

This is partially true and partially false. A lot of data is static. It is not "delivered to where it needs to go" so [more]

Re: Valuation & TA

Denny,
Brilliant post.

I have long had lot of respect for your thinking and knowledge. This is still true despite some disagreements we might have.

I just struggle with a post that strongly validates an indeterminate world view [more]

Re: Trump Just Didn’t Manage Putin Well at

I can think of no company or military command where this is tolerated

Re: Trump Just Didn’t Manage Putin Well at

of course the Russians interfere when possible. So does the US. Most recently under Obama.
All part of international politics. How the game is played.


Interesting point of view. I recently mentioned that the Chinese have exactly [more]

Re: Trump Just Didn’t Manage Putin Well at

I thought the most significant development yesterday was the arrest of the woman laundering campaign money through the NRA.

Yeah, it would seem that some $50M is somewhat larger than the $100K someone else mentioned. I wonder if the [more]

Re: Orange Dream...

Dreamer, pretty much agree with a lot of your commentary, but this is at least in part dead wrong:

Re: Oh My!

I have long disagreed with the term "unstructured." A JPG file is not unstructured (same for a WAV, DOC, etc), it is just not amenable to parsing for storage in an RDBMS. You pretty much got to put the whole thing in a row/column slot. If [more]

I would appreciate it if you would stop cyber-stalking me. I'm not interested in your harassing remarks. It's a bunch of meaningless gibberish. Go find a different target. You're getting to be truly obnoxious. If you want to [more]

Re: Decent write-up on JD.com thesis

Volfan,
Thanks for posting this. You should cross-post on Saul's board if you've not already done so. Ignoring all the pom-poms and cheerleading for Wiedower Capital I found the article very informative. I have a blanket objection to [more]
