Re: OT: Throwaway hardware.

I would be skeptical of the printing capability of the initial toner cartridge, even though the cartridge is typically rated at "1500 to 3000 pages".

I bought a fancy new Samsung laser jet printer this year. I ran out of ink within [more]

Re: OT: what is the big picture for OIL?

If we know that:

a. Burning fossil fuels for energy (likely) causes an increase of CO2 in the atmosphere.

b. There are better alternative energy sources available (algae farms, fusion reactors, etc.).

Then why aren't we [more]

Dangit. I hit "submit" instead of "preview".

Change sentence to: "The general reason for the price decrease is an inability to power the economy"

Hello TMFJebbo,

The statement summarizes the prevailing philosophy of the pundits on www.peakoil.com. Why oil extracted 30-50 years ago yielded higher energy must have something to do with the chemical [more]

Re: Words of Wisdom on the economy from Mitch Zacks

Hi Saul,

First time poster to your board.

Being a devotee of peak oil and fossil fuel energy study, one must be wary of the downturn in energy companies, at least over the medium to long term. Though the recent slide in energy [more]

A nice positive article by someone who believes UPS is a better long term investment than FedEx. I hope the article can be seen by all, without having to sign up to the Seeking Alpha discussion board. Lots of financial analysis included. I sort of [more]

Part of Clorox's attractiveness as an investment may be related to the actual value of its primary product.

Re: Downside correction coming??

If there's anybody I should apologize to for being snarky, it's quincylaker, when I laughed off the suggestion that Donald Trump would be good for UPS and the rest of the American economy.

Re: Downside correction coming??

What I was saying is you reported the revenue miss in dollars, but then reported the earnings gain in cents per share, which makes it look small compared to the revenue miss.

Instead of 400 million vs. 8 cents, I prefer 400 million revenue [more]

Re: Downside correction coming??

Wait a minute. I'm calling an error on bibbucks, for stating revenue in dollars, but then dividing earnings growth by the number of shares to make it look small. Revenue missed by 400 million, earnings 70 million over estimates. Revenue problems [more]

Re: Play ball

I have to retract that last comment about Donald Trump. At least partially. This is not a Trump project; he allowed the resort to use his name (for a fee), in an effort to try and generate more business.

However, I still believe Mr. Trump [more]
