Re: Update for Thursday

Hi, Adam!

I actually think the jobless rate will go up as jobs become available. A lot of people "dropped out" of the job market. The unemployment numbers don't include anyone who isn't "actively" looking for work. I'm [more]

Re: Happy 4 Year Anniversary At Fool, Adam

Congratulations on your anniversary - and your "big red star," Adam! I never noticed the "balloon" icon for anniversaries before! You've definitely come a long way in your four years with the Fool!

Re: 1 year anniversary today: Thanks to you all:)

Congratulations, Adam! So you've averaged an article a day - while adding this huge Grand Adventure to your successes - and more views than the number of people who live in my small town (by a factor of 30! :) )!

It's been wonderful reading [more]

Re: Further Screening for the remaining stocks

Wow! What happened to our list! I don't recognize A LOT of these companies, and companies that I consider safe, long-term "standards" (VZ, MO, AAPL, T, KMB) are missing. Also, a lot of the energy companies that have been great buys lately [more]

Re: Further Screening for the remaining stocks

I agree! I'd like to see fewer companies on the list. Even 132 is a lot of companies to choose from. Finding the best of the best of the best would be wonderful!

Re: ILOD Tues: STOP PANICKING ABOUT INTEREST RATES!

The Fed will definitely increase interest rates very slowly and very cautiously. I think just .25% this year - no more. Then they will see how the economy responds before increasing rates another .25% next year - if at all. If the increase in [more]

Welcome to the boards, mkcochrane! I'm surprised that with your work and four little children that you've had time to read the board. :) It's full of great information, however.

Re: The Power of TGA Community

Wow! How disheartening that so few companies have three years of increasing revenues and three years of increasing net income - especially since we have had six years of great stock market performance!

I am definitely extremely interested [more]

Re: Oil Prices

Hi, Quill,

The first item in the Huffington Post article was all I needed to read! Actually, Pennsylvania took years and years to build I-99 (east-west across the state). Here in the center of the state they had more push-back than anywhere [more]

Re: Oil Prices

I agree we need to do something about the infrastructure, MathMusic, and a "usage tax" is the fairest way to collect the money. (Although many would say a usage tax disproportionately taxes the poor - especially the working poor who need to [more]

Re: Oil Prices

I'd absolutely love lower oil prices, Adam! I was just shocked how fast the heating oil prices went up. Lower gas/oil could mean lower prices across the economy because of lower transportation costs and lower energy costs.

Oil Prices

I know you would like oil prices to go down, Adam. However, I had a bit of a shock today. On February 13 I bought 100 gallons of heating oil at $2.399. With the cold temperatures, I needed to buy oil again today - at $2.699 - 30 cents more in about [more]
